:confused: I am trying to do my weekly ScanDisk and am having problems with the program CIMOM. I have done CTRL ALT DEL to stop all the un-necessary programs from running and CIMOM keeps starting again. I receive the error message that Scan Disk has restarted 10 times but a program is running.... The program is CIMOM. The only way I can complete my ScanDisk is to run in safe mode which takes 6 hours or more to complete. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It'd odd you should even see this program. It's the Common Information Model Object Manager. Are you on some base that allows administration over the web?

Did you recently install a program/game that updated DirectX?

Do you see anything in the task list like: Winmgmt?

No, I am a stand alone at home. I recently went from Dialup to a cable internet connection. On the same day I purchased a Firewall from Symantec and wentinto Windows and downloaded any updates that were available. Since that date I have had this problem.

Well that may explain it. Probably the cable internet but don't ever rule out Symantec.

Try disconnecting the cable box then stopping CIMOM and see if it starts up on it's own again.

I did disconnect the cable as well as disabling the firewall and CIMOM came right back, since then I have just been using the safe mode....

Well I hesitate to tell you to use msconfig to stop it from loading, if it's even visible there, since my guess is it's part of the broadband package. There really would be no other reason I can think of.

I think the best choice would be to let me ask a couple of folk here who may have experience with that file and broadband. Afraid I'm still a dial up man.

I'll see if they can review this.

I appreciate any help that you can give. In hindsite I wish I would have stayed with dial up.

Hi lindam, welcome from me as well, Griff has asked me look in here, but I'm kinda stumped too.

I'd like to see your startup items, via, start, run, type msinfo32 and hit enter, go to software, startups, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

Also, does that sound familiar?

Can you search for that file via windows explorer (cimom) and right click, properties and give us info on it.

Well, it's not in the startup process, unless you turned it off? When does it start running?

Also, not sure how much ram you have, but that is way too many startup items.

The only time I see it running is when I am trying to do my ScanDisk. I do CTL ALT DEL to stop the unnecessary programs from running. CIMOM will not stop, it keeps coming back into the list after I EndTask.

I do not know how all of those got items got into my startup, nor do I know how to delete them.

Ok, let's try this. Reboot the computer. Do CTRL-ALT-DEL immediately after the desktop loads and prior to you opening any other programs. Is it there at that time?

DataViz Documents to Go - "allows you to use your Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on your handheld anywhere, anytime. In addition, it now synchronizes e-mail with attachments, PDF files, pictures and Excel-like charts"

Do you use any software that may have installed this? http://www.dataviz.com/products/documentstogo/

This is just a guess base on the purpose of this file CIMOM

Okay, I tried this and the program was not there until I hit cancel and all of the programs loaded.
