Windows Sysinternals Suite (December 12, 2017): Autoruns 13.81, Bginfo 4.23 and Handle v4.11

Microsoft has released an update version (December 12, 2017) of Windows Sysinternals Suite. This new release contains an updated version of Autoruns 13.81, Bginfo 4.23 and Handle v4.11.

Overview
The Windows Sysinternals troubleshooting utilities have been rolled up into a single suite of tools. These utilities can help you to manage, troubleshoot and diagnose your Windows systems and applications. Each file contains the individual troubleshooting tools and help files.

Note: Windows Sysinternals does not contain non-troubleshooting tools like the BSOD Screen Saver or NotMyFault.

What's new in this version?
Windows Sysinternals Suite (Build December 12, 2017) contains following updates:

Autoruns 13.81
This update to Autoruns fixes a Wow64 bug in Autorunsc that could cause 32-bit paths to result in 'file not found' errors, and expands the set of images not considered part of Windows for the Windows filter in order to reveal malicious files masquerading as Windows images.

Bginfo 4.23
This update to Bginfo fixes bugs that caused incorrect scaling on Windows 10 multimonitor systems.

Handle 4.11
When run on 64-bit systems, Handle now extracts the 64-bit version to the %TEMP% directory rather than the local directory.
