PsTools is a good, free Windows software, belonging to the category Networking software with subcategory Analysis (more specifically Administration) and has been published by Microsoft.

It's available for users with the operating system Windows 2000 and prior versions, and it is only available in English. The current version of the program is 2.43 and the latest update happened on 2/13/2007.

Since the software has been added to our selection of software and apps in 2007, it has obtained 31.351 downloads, and last week it achieved 48 installations.

About the download, PsTools is a reasonably light program that doesn't need as much space than average programs in the section Networking software. It's a program very heavily used in many countries such as China, United States, and Vietnam.

This collection of tools allows you to manage remote systems as well as the local one. The "Ps" prefix in PsList relates to the fact that the standard UNIX process listing command-line tool is named "ps", so this prefix has been adopted for all the tools in order to tie them together into a suite of tools named PsTools.

These are the tools included in PsTools:

  • PsExec - execute processes remotely
  • PsFile - shows files opened remotely
  • PsGetSid - display the SID of a computer or a user
  • PsInfo - list information about a system
