Err -- why?

Volatile Systems is behind the Volatility framework, which is probably the best FOSS tool going right now for Windows memory analysis.  (Admittedly, it only works on Windows XP... but given XP's userbase, even today, that's not a huge loss.)  If you want to learn about what memory analysis can do, you could do a lot worse than to look into Volatility.

Volatility can also inspect Windows XP's hibernation file and recover data structures from it.  I seem to recall that Volatility was the toolkit used by the Madison investigators, but don't quote me on that.  I may be barking wrong.
