Have you ever wondered if Windows Pagefile settings should be changed or how they actually work? Have you ever wondered what the values in Task Manager actually mean – like Paged Pool, Working Set, Free memory etc? Do you know how a file actually gets cached and finally written to the disk or how threads communicate with each other? Have you ever wondered what Mutexes or Semaphores in Process Explorer really mean? If you don’t know the answers, come and join this course as it will provide you with the answers and a lot more!
This four day course teaches you how the operating system actually works under the hood. Windows Internals was previously taught globally by two of the best known teachers David Solomon and Mark Russinovich. David is now retired from training and Mark is working for Microsoft. This training is based on their Windows Internals book which is considered mandatory knowledge for all top Microsoft professionals including Microsoft’a own PFE’s (Premier Field Engineer).
This training is delivered by Sami Laiho - one of the top Windows OS professionals globally. Sami has been awarded as Best Speaker and his OS sessions as Best Session in multiple Microsoft TechEd’s and other conferences. Sami has been working with OS internals and security for almost 20 and teaching the art for more than 15 years.

This training is meant for all administrators who want to deepen their knowledge about Windows. It is also suitable for people who think they know everything about the Windows OS… It’s a very deep dive course and surely in no way suitable for beginners. But if someone has gone through the OS Troubleshooting course MC025 http://www.cornerstone.se/kurser/microsoft/windows/windows-server/windows-server-2012/black-belt-troubleshooting-os-with-sami-laiho, then this course will deepen that knowledge even further.
