Download Windows XP Reskit Tools

Where can I get the Windows XP Support Tools?

The Windows XP Resource Kit Tools are a set of software tools for administrators, developers, and power users to manage Active Directory, Group Policy, TCP/IP Networks, Registry, Security, Scalability and many other areas of the Windows XP operating system.

Note: I recommend using the Windows Server 2003 Support Tools instead, as they are newer than the XP ones and include a few new tools.
