Was going ro report another program that recently stopped woring (cleanmgr), but got this crash on
installing the recommended info util.


the rest the below ... I guess just ignore it for now...computer seems to slowly be easting itself.


Theoretically, for what little good it seems to do, the sfc comes up clean.

I'm beginning to wonder...I just recently re-enabled windows updates -- after having turned it off for a while, and it downloaded a dozen or so. Perhaps that was a booboo. :-(

Also failing msinfo32 can't connect to wmi.
resource monitor gets access denied when trying to start monitor, though perfmon (same prog, different switch) does come up and updates it's system info window.

Also , windows event collector and viewer has been broken for quite a while. Including through an inplace upgrade/repair.

Had the solution for me...deleting the "(default) key:

I solved the problem by going to
"HKey Local Machine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version > Explorer > Volume Caches > System error memory dump files"

and then deleted Default value data. and now it just works fine!
Now I wanna know why it worked!! Hmmm....like MS would say.

Though sysinfo still crashes...
Sigh...

Will have to come back for the other probs, but at least this one went down w/o too much of a fuss.
