Windows Internals - a "must read"

If you work with Windows servers and clients, in either a support role or as a developer, then this book is a must read. MCSEs will find it gives a valuable insight into what Windows is doing behind the scenes, and how to best manage it. If you thought you knew all there was to know about Windows, well, your wrong. Written by Mark Russinovich (of WinInternals fame) and David Solomon (noted expert on Windows internals), it delves into the inner most workings of the kernel and its architecture.

It includes in depth information on:

  • Concepts and Tools
  • System Architecture
  • System Mechanisms
  • Management Mechanisms
  • Startup and Shutdown
  • Processes, Threads, and Jobs
  • Memory Management
  • Security
  • I/O System
  • Storage Management
  • Cache Manager
  • File Systems
  • Networking
  • Crash Dump Analysis
