3rd paragraph

It says "Sysinternals had two million downloads per day". I think he meant "month". Later in the page it mentions how the community continues to thrive with "three million downloads per month".

Note from the Author or Editor:
"per day" should be changed to "per month."

Last sentence of "Mark's Webcasts"

The last sentence states "... are included on this book's companion media." But there is no CD (the assumed companion media) provided/bundled with this book ... which begs the question, what other items are missing from the alleged media bundle ?

Note from the Author or Editor:
The last sentence of the paragraph should be removed. There is no companion media with the book.

Figure 4-25

Figure 4-25 is a duplicate of Figure 4-26 and depicts the "By Folder" tab ... so Fig 4-26 is correct and Fig 4-25 is wrong since it does not depict the "By Path" tab (as the caption and textual context indicate).

Note from the Author or Editor:
Figure 4-25 is the wrong image.
