I'm not a Windows SuperUser, but neither just the regular user. I don't mind browsing the Registry, using Process Explorer, reading the Event logs, (un)installing new drivers and so on, but all this only makes me solve some problems.
I tend though to run into problems where these tools aren't enough. Which tools should I learn about to improve my troubleshooting skills in Windows?
Currently I'm using Windows Vista x64 (not moved to 7 yet), facing audio/video stuttering problems and I think this is a good place to improve my troubleshooting skills.
I know this post is similar to this question, but my machine is only hanging occationally.
