Now and again, a large problem can be solved with a small utility. That is the idea behind this complete suite of small utilities that have in mind making any administrator's job easier. By using the PsTools it will be very easy to gather a lot of information about any computer by means of the local network.
Pack of tools to manage networks
Some of the tools that we'll find in PsTools are: "PsExec" to launch processes remotely, the "PsFile" viewer for files opened remotely, "PsInfo", that shows us information about the system (including how long it has been turned on), "PsKill" that stops processes without any problems, "PsList" to obtain detailed information about the processes or "PsLoggedOn" to know who is using the computer, amongst other tools.
You can even find security utilities, like PsPasswd, that allows you to change passwords. Regarding security issues, we may encounter the setback that some antiviruses detect PsTools as an attacking file or virus due to its functionality.
