Clip.exe and other sysinternals tools

 

Some brilliant little utilities talked about on the sysinternals session from MS TechEd 2014 here

Also check out https://www.virustotal.com/ which has integration into the latest version of sysinternals process explorer. Latest version can be downloaded from http://live.sysinternals.com. Virus total is a good way of using multiple virus scanners rather than just one to check files that you aren't sure about.

 

Had never heard of clip.exe before… (built into windows by default as well).

C:\Dev\RussellReynolds2010\Main\Solutions\Scripts>clip /?

CLIP

Description:

Redirects output of command line tools to the Windows clipboard.

This text output can then be pasted into other programs.

Parameter List:

/? Displays this help message.

Examples:

DIR | CLIP Places a copy of the current directory

listing into the Windows clipboard.

CLIP < README.TXT Places a copy of the text from readme.txt

on to the Windows clipboard.

More useful tools are:

  1. DU.exe - disk usage check : e.g.
    du -ct | clip.exe
  2. RU.exe - registry usage check : e.g.
    ru -ct -l 3 "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node"
