Microsoft Best Practices Analyser
As usual, Scott Hanselman beat me to it (!) with his recent blog post Microsoft Best Practices Analyzer Tools where he gives a round-up of the offerings from Microsoft and muses whether we will be seeing a combined tool soon, which seems likely given this codeplex project called the Microsoft Best Practice Analyzer (BPA). It comes with a plugin for ASP.NET 2.0, and as Scott notes you might be surprised if you run it on one of your projects. Not only will it find potential problems but also suggest accurate solutions. His post also gives links to the various best practices tools currently available.
