Reliability Monitor

Q: Reliability Monitor

For the last week or so, Reliability Monitor has been showing the attached info periodically.
It makes no sense. There are 128 successful updates and 10 failures (5 pairs) each time, always the same.

The system seems to be operating normally.

Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Reliability Monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The Reliability Monitor of Windows 7 is a very handy tool for monitoring the history of when which applications have failed.

Being a developer, it is to be expected that applications that are "In-Development" will cause problems, which in turn negativly affects the scores of the Windows Reliability Monitor. I utility I'm creating (for personal use) crashes regularly when closed, but also only if it is run from within the RAD Studio 2010 IDE. If I run the compiled EXE from Windows Explorer, then it does not crash, so I suspect that it is some kind of incompatibility between Windows 7 and the Delphi Debugger.


As you can imagine, this scenario is seriously affecting my Reliability Monitor:


So what I'd like to know is whether or not there is a way for me to "exclude" the IGRAB.EXE from being monitored by the Windows Reliability Monitor, so that it can display only those failures that I'm interested in, without my own development projects from screwing up the scores?

I suppose I could attempt to debug what is causing the crash, but so far none of the normal debugging techniques have worked. As I said, the crash only happens if the Delphi IDE was used to launch the program...

Sorry Peter, I did search for this yesterday, but was hoping someone else would have some info. I don't think you can exclude certain programs, or even certain categories, sorry. A Guy

Hi all,

Just curious if anyone can tell me how reliability viewer is setup to view on remote win7 PC's.

I can go into Perfmon and connect to a remote PC, but when I right click on monitor to view reliability report it just opens my local machine report.

The RAC task is running on all PC, so the RACagent is up and going. I followed the technet instructions, but nothing I do seems to bring up the remote PC report. I can run the system diags on the remote PC and get all the correct info, so I know part of this is working. Its just reliability monitor that will not work correctly.

Thanks,

A:Reliability Monitor

I was curious so i played with this, and i see the Reliability Monitor history for the remote PC.
I started the remote Reliability Monitor program by typing reliability in the search box and clicking on View reliability history.

I'm a Home user, using TeamViewer free for remote access/help.

I connected from a Win 7 OS, to a remote PC running Win 7.
Your specs show Win 10 OS, i haven't tested with that.

Problem: the Reliability monitor is blank. There once were, but no longer is any graphic on the top screen, or source reports on the bottom (there once were).

Steps Taken so Far:
-I've cleared the RAC published and State data, Reliability history, and problem reports.

Observations:
-In Services, it shows that "Problem Reports and Solutions..." is started and on automatic.
-In Services, it shows that "Performance Logs and Alerts" is started and on manual.
-The Event Viewer is recording errors and warnings.
-The RAC published and State data files are not being remade (the folders remain empty).
-The Task Scheduler has nothing in the RAC folder.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking that their is a Task that is missing, but how would I fix that?

Hi, and thanks for taking the time to look over my question.

My question is about the Reliability Monitor.

First, I am not showing any entries at all. Not even any blue update notifications, which have been there in the past. Is there any reason these entries are no longer being displayed?

Second, I understand that the Reliability Monitor will assign a stability index number, as an indication of how stable/unstable one's computer is. I have looked through the program, however I am unable to locate that numerical entry. If somebody could point me to where this can be located, that would be very much appreciated.






Reliability Monitor is an advanced tool that measures hardware and software problems and other changes to your computer. It provides a stability index that ranges from 1 (the least stable) to 10 (the most stable). You can use the index to help evaluate the reliability of your computer. Any change you make to your computer or problem that occurs on your computer affects the stability index.




Regards,
b1rd

Note: I do have this view set to Weeks, not Days- however there are no entries within the days either.

A:Reliability Monitor Questions

I don't know why you are not showing updates, I am. But I can answer the answer the question about the stability index. It is the vertical numbers on the left hand side. You might want to change the vew by to days rather than weeks and see if that shows more detail.

I think it may be better to ask this question here.
I recently upgraded the firmware (as reqd) on the Crucial M4 128GB and it went fine. Transferred the OS using Paragon Migrate OS to SSD. It also was straightforward. Except:
My Reliability Monitor doesn't appear to update. I know one of the SSD tweaks is to disable the Reliability Monitor and thought maybe the Paragon software did this. BUT the RacTask appears enabled.
>schtasks.exe /change /enable /tn \microsoft\windows\rac\ractask

So can I ask
1) Those using an SSD is your Reliability Monitor working like it did with your spinner?
2) Those who have used the Paragon product, is your Reliability monitor working as usual?

Then suddenly Applications fail everywhere i.e. Internet Explorer, Adobe Reader and a host of others "stop working" The graph sometimes plummets to 6 and crawls at snail's pace back to 7 or 8. I am lucky to reach 9 most times. Is there anything there to worry about ?. Idid Google the matter.

Hello Forum,

Has anyone noticed a most annoying scenario involving the above. I have recently had a Hard Drive replaced and ,from time to time, I keep an eye on the above monitor.
This commences at 10 on the graph naturally when first installed. A couple of days later their was a slight "blip" in performance dropping this value to maybe 8.64. It then, all things remaining equal, began to climb back, in small increments, towards 10. Weeks later, resting at about 9.84, it starts acting up. In my case, I could not turn off the PC in normal manner (mouse pointer froze) and there had to be a Disruptive Shutdown plummeting the graph to around 8.7. Climbing again then errors galore... "explorer stopped working", next "real player stopped working", Google Earth stopped working". I am now back from nearly 10 a few days ago to around 7.84..maddening PC is working fine and I suppose I am being overfastidious in this matter and I suppose these matters do not amount to much. However, very annoying. Views on the matter appreciated.

A:Performance & Reliability Monitor.

I am not trying to defend the variable readings from the performance, but merely give you my opinion on the subject.
When I check my monitor, I am glad that the readings change, it shows that the montior is sensitive to changes in the performance of the computer.
As you noted small changes are shown in the montior to indicate that during that point and time there is a problem.
The monitor is not suppose to be watched in lieu of enjoying the computer, but as a maintenance tool to help find solutions to problems.
If it were not sensitive to indicate changes in performance, how would you be able to use it as a monitoring tool when needed.
Especially,now, that you know that the fluctuations are not meaningful in real life situations, you could just ignore it. Look at it once a week, to satisfy yourself that the fluctuations are within normal limits. Use it when you continually freeze or have some other problem that you want to correct.

Hello, can you help please, my reliability monitor is not working, it runs as per the schedule but does not produce any data, my problems started recently following a small corruption with the library docs, this corruption caused the R/monitor to run continuously, I rectified this error with a library scan, all is good there, I then ran the reliability reset batch file which reset the monitor back to zero. However when the monitor runs it does not produce the required files that live in the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC folder under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC\PublishedData and C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC\StateData, these 2 folders are empty. I saved the original files however if I return the files to the 2 folders the reliability monitor does not access them. I have attached 2 x prints one of my RAC registry and RAC WMI.

Hi there!

I'm having a small but annoying problem with Vista (business)'s reliability monitor. Every day since one day in August last year it relists about 50 programs as having an "application configuration change", often with several duplicates (there's always the same number of duplicates for all of the programs).

It doesn't seem to be related to any other crashes or installs listed there, and some of the programs it lists, I haven't used for months.

I've tried moving the files out of C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC\... where the reliability logs are kept, and that clears all the previous entries, but each day it still adds the 50 application changes.

I've scanned several times for viruses and spyware with a few different scanners, but have never found anything. I'm a bit stumped as to how to fix it, and if it could be caused by a larger problem I haven't noticed yet or something.

Well if anyone has any suggestions, it'd be much appreciated! If any other system info would help, just ask.

I know this has been discussed at length before, but I have tried everything I have read here and elsewhere and I still can't get the graph to show anything. The RAC task runs successfully and there are files in the PublishedData and StateDate folders which have the current date and are rather small compared to the same files on another computer I use where it works.

I have noticed that the graph has the message you get when you reset the monitor every other day so it would seem that it is resetting itself and perhaps that is why it doesn't show anything.

I have reset all file and folder permissions to default. Still nothing. I have compared my settings to a computer where it works and they seem the same.

I even decided to bite the bullet and do a repair install, but I get the cannot upgrade Windows 7 Pro to Windows 7 Pro error. And, yes I've tried running the setup.exe in Vistal mode, but still get the error.

I was wondering if anyone might have some updated information that I have yet to find. As I've said, I've done everything listed in this forum such as run sfc /scannow and I ran the batch file posted to reset it. I've deleted the files from the PublishedData and StateData folders.

I've considered trying a system restore, but I don't really know when it stopped working so don't know how far back I'd have to go.

If nothing else, does anyone know how I can get the repair install to work?

Thanks in advance should someone have an answer.

I need some help.

Due to some personal carelessness, I damaged my C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC folder. It was necessary for me to recreate the PublishedData and StateData directories.

Unfortunately, after that, Reliability Monitor would not show data. I tracked the problem down to a permission problem with the newly created folders. RAC Task runs as LOCAL SERVICE. Adding permissions (OI)(CI) F for LOCAL SERVICE to the RAC folder allows the RAC Task to populate its files to the directories. Before, it was running without writing data.

Then, to make the graph work, I'm currently having to set (OI)(CI) F for BUILTIN/Users, or the Reliability Monitor reporting does not work properly, even in an Administrator account (and BUILTIN/Administrators had full access inherited the whole time). The graph appears, but it is empty. The only way I've been able to get the graph to populate is by giving BUILTIN/Users full access.

My question is, can someone whose install of Windows 7 x64 isn't hosed please tell me what the permissions are supposed to be on the RAC folder, and its subfolders and objects? I'd like to set it back to the way it was installed, but I don't have access to a proper install of Windows 7.

For now, the jury rigged folder permissions are doing the trick, but I'd like to get it back to a clean state.

Here are the permissions I currently have on my RAC folder:

While the reliability monitor and event viewer can be useful troubleshooting tools, I have trouble what can safely be ignored. For example, I did a clean install of Windows 8.1, using local signin and did not setup OneDrive. Daily, there is a Critical Event complaining that OneDrive stopped working. (It might be more critical if it DID work! ) So, is this 'critical' for system stability or 'critical' for MS strategy?

I'd say for later one. I don't know why they are pushing One Drive like they are so eager to spend money on online storage. One Drive is useful if you have multiple connected devices but on a single computer, to be used as backup, internet would have to be very fast and even with a Gigabit connection not very practical for large amount of data.

I shut down my PC via the start button as normal every time but 9.9 times out of 10 the reliability monitor states that "Windows was not properly shut down". This does not appear to be affecting the work that I do on my PC but I would like to know:
1. Should I be worried and
2. How can I get rid of this re-occurring message if it's not a problem

I have been having trouble with the broadband signal in my house. The router is at the front of the house in the master socket but I struggle to get a signal at the back of the house. I don't want to move the router as it is plugged in to the master socket and there is a huge difference in speed if I move it to the back.
I have had problems with the signal dropping so have tried various methods with the latest being changing the channel to one which inSSider tells me is little used by neighbours. It seems that this has improved the reliability but I would like to have better proof than gut feeling.
Please can anyone tell me if there is some software which will log the reliability of my broadband showing when the connection drops and/or maybe keep a log of the speed? I have Googled but can only find software which monitors usage which I'm not bothered about as am on unlimited.
Thanks for any help.

I've noticed my reliability monitor is not always updating 100%. Some examples are when I apply new windows updates for patch Tuesday sometimes the monitor doesn't show that anything was installed that day even when I check after a week or two it still shows blank for that date. Just curious since it seems to be at random.

I am having a problem with the the Reliability and Performance monitor in Vista x64, SP1.

When trying to start a LAN Diagnostics, I get an error that reads: "login failure:unknown user name or bad password"

I am logged in with admin privs, with UAC turned off.

Any ideas what I have going on here?

I have had other quarky problems lately like the inability to delete folders which continues to make me believe there is some issue with my user profile and permissions.

I have followed the tutorial on this site to reset the reliability history - trash RAC files etc. The graph clears ok but a few hours later back comes all the old problem. I am thinking there must be another file hidden away that is being accessed for the data. I would not be bothered normally but I check components on this test bed machine and it would be easier to see whats happening with a clean graph when I switch bits around.

Welcome to the forum,

Have you cleared the problem reports, Problem Reports and Solutions - Clear History

Or erased them from the event viewer?

That was what I had to do to keep them from showing back up in a few hours.

Hello, so for quite awhile I've been having some strange issues with my computer.... It was almost an overnight experience if I remember correctly... I want to say that it was after I did a reinstall of windows but I'm not 100% sure. Anyways a lot of my programs are not running properly, for example; When I start my computer sometimes Steam will boot up with it and other times it won't and when it doesn't I try to start it up myself but it won't........ Geforce Experience is another one. It used to always be running in the background on the notification tray and well now it does not show the icon in the notification tray but if I go to start menu and start it up I can bring the program up but still no notification. Uplay I was just installing for a game and it used to show up in the notification tray but doesn't now and it keeps saying I can't log in from some issue. SO lots of application failures and I don't know what to do. I have attatched multiple screenshots of the reliability monitor. Please, please, please I beg you for help!

Recently, I formatted my HD and made a clean install of Vista Home Premium x64 w/ SP1 slipstreamed into the DVD I made. The install went very smoothly and I had all of the updates installed. Everything is working without problems, yet I noticed something weird in the reliability monitor that I've never seen anywhere before. There appeared to be a long (or infinite) string of unknown characters (when they show up as simply boxes) at the end of some text in the monitor. I posted a screenshot so you can see what I'm talking about since it's hard to explain in text.

Have any of you seen this? And do any of you know how to fix this? The program still functions fine and I haven't experienced any problems anywhere. This only occurs within the reliability monitor tab where your reliability graph appears, everything else in the monitor works and looks fine. It's just bothersome to have all of those extra characters at the end there.

Thanks for any help.

A:Reliability Monitor - Unknown Characters

Hello Spd2Last,

This is strange. I have not seen this before. Have you tried restarting the computer to see if it was just some weird quark?

You might also run a sfc /scannow command to see if it can find and fix any bad system files that be the cause. It probably would not hurt to run a very thorough antivirus and anti-spyware/malware scan to help be safe incase it is some form of malware.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have a Samsung NP365E5C-S05US laptop, 64bit os.
I googled around a week ago how to clear out the Reliability Monitor and found a file and downloaded it named "Reset-Reliability-Monitor.bat"
 
It runs the following commands...
":: Created by: Kapil Arya
:: Corresponding Article:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/
reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Reliability Analysis\WMI" /v WMIEnable /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
del /f /S /Q /A "%ProgramData%\Microsoft\RAC\PublishedData\*"
del /f /S /Q /A "%ProgramData%\Microsoft\RAC\StateData\*"
@echo off
FOR /F "tokens=1,2*" %%V IN ('bcdedit') DO SET adminTest=%%V
IF (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto noAdmin
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO (call :do_clear "%%G")
echo.
echo goto theEnd
:do_clear
echo clearing %1
wevtutil.exe cl %1
goto :eof
:noAdmin
exit"
 
 
 
It used to work but no longer does. When I run it gives me a few errors at the beginning saying something about "the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"
I didn't get this error a few days ago and not sure why I am now or what is using these files..
I've had this laptop around a month and this is the only issue I've had with it, no issues with viruses or anything and I ran a scan just yesterday and things were fine.
I need help fixing this. Take a look at the screenshot that shows the issue, thank you.

Windows 7 Reliability Monitor Graph problem.
I have 2 computers, both exactly the same hardware, running Windows 7 Home premium installed at the same time on both computers. (January 2010)
The reliability monitor graph in one computer works as it should showing the details and reliability index. In the other computer the graph does not work at all, it never shows anything.

Whenever I start or reboot that computer, it shows the message that the reliability monitor will take several hours to calculate the index and be updated for this first install of windows seven.

The reliability monitor window shows the problem reports as it should.
The RAC files in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC are being updated by the scheduled RACTask hourly.

I have checked the RACTask in the scheduler, deleted it and reinstalled it, and it's history in Task Scheduler says its working correctly.

The Vista fix (found with Google searches) doesn't work. Does anyone have a Windows 7 answer/fix?

I have run SFC.exe scan now, it didn't fix the problem...

Have you attempted to reset the graph?

Interestingly after this I noticed that the under the Task Scheduler/RAC the History Tab was showing (disabled).
I clicked on the "enable history" option and now the monitor graph is showing recent entries.

Hey Guys,

The Vista Reliability monitor is pretty cool, except, application failures frequently and easily bring down the stability index of the system.

Personally, I do not like that. One cannot judge the stability of a system purely on the stability of just one application on the system. For me, that application is Team Fortress 2. Every time I'm done playing it, it crashes on exit. This usually happens frequently with most Source engine games.

Unfortunately, b/c of TF2 crashing on exit, my stability index is 2.95! My system is not at all unstable!

Is there an easy way to modify the report so that it excludes application failures from the report? I have done a lot of searching on the internet, and I cannot find anything about it.
