Advanced Windows troubleshooting tools

I am researching into Windows troubleshooting tools that will help us with performance issues and such like.

So far, I have:

1 Windows Perfmon
2. Event Log
3. TCP View
4. ProcessMon
5. Wireshark
6. ProcessExplorer

Can anyone think of anything else?

Well, not an 'advanced tool', but the old standby -- "Windows Task Manager".

I'd add 'DebugView' to the list.

And to check for missing critical patches, Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA).

SysInternals PSTOOLS and Autoruns are also must have's.

I don't use Wireshark enough to know for sure that is isn't capable of this, but Microsoft Network Monitor allows you to view information from the wire on a 'pre process' basis - i.e. you can see all packet information relating specifically to Internet Exporer, for example.

I've found this extremely useful, and so prefer MS Network Monitor to wireshark!
