Description: Note: version 6.2 came with Windows 8 and is actually newer than the latest version 6.12.0002.633 for Windows 7.

Microsoft's own ring 0 debugger. Quite unfriendly to use, but one of the remaining stable options since the discontinuation of SoftICE.

You will find some extensions that make it at least somewhat easier to use, in the WinDbg extensions category.
