I am looking for a tool or a way to analyze a full memory dump that is user initiated. I know about the Microsoft Debugging tools but it seems that they only allow me to view what caused the memory dump and not view the actual contents of the memory to see if there are any locks going on.

Any one have a preferred tool for this? If I can do this with Windbg that is great, I just need to know how.

    The Debugging Tools can display anything which is either in your memory or in the dump. It is not only used for crash dump analysis, but able to do all the debugging stuff, too, including inspecting memory, symbols, local vars, etc.
