    A debugger is a very nice tool to find and analyze bugs in your software. You can do things like single-stepping through the code, inspect variables, take a look at hardware registers and many more.

    I know what they are for, but haven't got a f*%&^ng clue how to use mine (vc++). Anyone know any good tutorials on its use?

    You don't need a tutorial for it..
    Just set some break points, start up the debugger and use the step to cursor button... look at variables, registers, assembly etc. It's pretty easy... you'll get good with it after a few uses.
