I'm running Win 7x64 Home Premium OEM and have used several of the Sysinternals tools for a few years.

Are the Sysinternals tools running ok on Win 10? I'm thinking about upgrading to 10 soon and read somewhere else that Sysinternals tools used a lot of memory and were problematic (I'm being diplomatic characterizing the quote I read 089.gif).

Since I've not experienced any Sysinternals issues with Win 7, I was wondering how the Win 10 users' experiences have been with the tools.

I use Sysinternals on Windows 10 and they seem to work just perfectly for me. They do not behave weirdly and they take near to no memory. If you want me to open a specific tool and run it, I can and let you know the results.

Updating to W10 is just like updating to any other OS.

If you update/upgrade, there's often problems (the more "well-used" an OS is before the upgrade - the more likely there will be problems).

If you do a clean install, you often avoid problems.

 

That being said, I use several of the tools on W10 regularly (mostly autoruns, process monitor, and process explorer) without any problems.

Hi Rocky,

Would you please try to Save (File> Save ...) in Autoruns.

I have three different computers with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit installed and Autoruns crashes (stops working) on all the machines every time I try to Save.
Thanks in advance.

Cheers
René
