Hello!
I'm looking for a list of XP's "hidden" utilities, files that are in the OS but doesn't display icons IE DXDIAG, AUTORUN, etc.

If anyone has a list or can give me a lead via a link it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
PS: Great site!

That's exactly what I mean. Thanks.

There's a tcp tester, regedit, taskmgr, etc, lurking in the OS.
Plus old DOS stuff like chkdsk
Thanks again
