For James and John- from george

My question to the people who say don't delete it- if it is so important, why is it not in my other 4-Core i5, and I know it has not been in this system over a couple months- and it made it fine w/o it for over a year. Don't delete it because it is a critical core Windows component, WMI is the Wind...

Re: Thanks, James...........................................

With all the help Pete, Ray and John have given me over time, and now with you- I believe if I had you 4 at my side we could ride into hell and put the fire out. I shall definitely make a copy from this link- it is a keeper. I just wonder until I study it further- I would imagine it would be some co...

Re: Oh Holy Crap John! It's Doing It Again!!

Do you use any of the Windows gadgets George ? I suspect not, but worth asking. Also, have you deleted any users on the system ? Both were worth asking- but "no" to each. However, I think I may have found the culprit. John's system, being not exactly the same as mine, may have different apps and st...

Re: HIARCS wins the World Chess Software Championship

And for the second year running, it is meaningless. The top engines were not there, and the number of games were tiny. There are lots of equal hardware ratings lists out there, with ALL the engines and hundreds of games per engine. Those are far more relevant. +1,000,000,000........... Not quite su...

Oh Holy Crap John! It's Doing It Again!!

I spoke too soon, and I cannot imagine why it would start after well over a year of use. And it could not have been doing it without my knowledge. Like some people are addicted to porn- I am addicted to "Task Manager". I found on my system the "WMI" you refer to and even found them talking about the...

Re: I Need Some Help In the Worst Possible Way-Help!!

I do not know why it happened now. It should not cause any further problems. The steps shown are for Win 7. Here is a possible reason for a cause from another Win7 user with the same problem... My high CPU usage problem turned out to be caused by a covertly installed software program called “Search...

Re: I Need Some Help In the Worst Possible Way-Help!!

The culprit is : IMON manager. If by any chance you have an imon manager : it starts a wmiprvse.exe *32 for monitoring hardware all the time (even if you uncheck the Hardware info box in frontview) By killing Imon manager you can now put the computer in standby mode and get it up without any proble...

I Need Some Help In the Worst Possible Way-Help!!

I write this as I am about to try to get some sleep, so when I wake up maybe some will have seen it. Maybe it is because I know so little that more people would be able to help than I imagine. I have 2 intel i5 4Core systems running off one KVM switch strong enough to easily handle both. And have ne...

What happens when you double-click the exe and type UCI ?



Ray- you got me there. "Double click the exe" when? During installation as usual, or in console mode before installation? And type it where?
