Book – Windows Internals 5th Edition

Fully updated for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista, delve inside Windows architecture and internals:

  • Understand how the core system and management mechanisms work—from the object manager to services to the registry
  • Explore internal system data structures using tools like the kernel debugger
  • Learn architectural perspectives and inside details you need to understand how Windows operates.
  • Grasp the scheduler’s priority and CPU placement algorithms
  • Go inside the Windows security model to see how it authorizes access to data
  • Understand how Windows manages physical and virtual memory
  • Tour the Windows networking stack from top to bottom—including APIs, protocol drivers, and network adapter drivers
  • Troubleshoot file-system access problems and system boot problems
  • Learn how to analyze crashes

Work on the sixth edition, which will cover Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, is already under way. We hope to have it out in the first half of 2010. In the meantime, watch for an upcoming article in TechNet Magazine that will preview the kernel changes.
