Issue stops when capturing with Process Monitor

Q: Issue stops when capturing with Process Monitor

Background: I have an issue with a piece of software that works fine in Win 7 but in Win10 the scanner feature has issues. Basically when you click the scan button to take you to the scan page you get the Windows 10 blue ring timer and you have to kill the process.
So I thought I would try seeing what was happening with Process Monitor. I started Process Monitor then opened the app and clicked scan and it worked! I have now tried it several time and it always works when Procmon is Capturing and fails when it is not.
Has anyone see or got any idea why?

Preferred Solution: Issue stops when capturing with Process 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.)


Not sure if this is the right forum to post in, but... I have my computer running into my monitor through the VGA port, and my 360 running into it through the DVI port.

I'm wondering (stupidly I'm sure), if there is any method to capturing my 360 gameplay onto my computer? I know they make desktop recorders, but does that work even if I switch the input signal, or will it just be black?

A:Monitor capturing question

You might have to install a video capture card to do this

Wasn't sure where to post this, but thought this was a good start. I have a Dell Dimension E510, Windows XP. Everything was working great until I shut the machine off while I was out of town for a few days. Upon returning, I booted up the machine and it it quickly completed about 95% of the boot process (as shown by the progress bar), then hangs up and just stops doing anything. Nothing will work on it other than turning it completely off at the power switch. Diagnostic lights flash during the boot up process until the very end when numbers 1 & 4 remain constant lit. Tried to hit F12 during the short boot up process to enter into a diagnostic state, but it doesn't respond to F12 or even F2 to view the process. Could not boot into Safe Mode either.

Any clues or help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Boot Process Stops

Unfortunately those diagnostic light parameters are not on the dell diagnostic chart for that model.

Are you sure you are tapping F12 several times during the Dell logo splash screen, It usually takes more than 1 keystroke to get the F12 screen. Then run diagnostics.

I would also unplug the PC power cord and open the case, remove the memory modules and reseat them twice to clean the contacts, then try booting.

If you get into the bios, check the date and time, if it is way off suspect a failing cmos battery, replace it with a new one, then enter the bios and "load defaults" saving changes on exit of the bios.

Hi Good Peoples,

Have a problem and am hoping for some help please.

My PC goes through the BIOS stage and starts to load Windoze 7, the GUI comes up and then it just stays there, goes into space with nothing happening.

I have booted in Safe Mode and that works, but it won't boot into Safe with Command Prompt or Networking.

I have tried the Repair my Computer option but that did not fix it. Then I did a System Restore but that did not fix it either.

Not sure as to what to do next.

A:Windows stops during boot process

Damn! It just got worse.

Now it won't even boot in safe mode.

Hi, I hope someone can help me with this as I cant find a solution online. A while ago I deleted a few programs that I thought I didnt need and this problem appeared - I keep getting flicked out of applications to find Internet Explorer has stopped working followed shortly after by Host Process has stopped working. Games seem less stable and I experience crashes from time to time although i never had a single crash in the last 3 years before this.

One of the programs I deleted was Microsoft Silverlight and also I think I deleted and re-installed NET frameworks. I cant quite remember exactly..... so is there a way to find out what I deleted that day? is it stored in a log somewhere?

I dont use Internet Explorer and this problem is even more annoying because of this.

Ive read the threat below about the same problem and I think that problem is caused by something different.

Right the only errors I can find in Event Viewer at the times when I get these messages are application errors:
Faulting application svchost.exe, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549adc4, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549bdc9, exception code 0xc000000d, fault offset 0x000bc57d, process id 0x7b4, application start time 0x01c7cf69ea1dd3cc

When host process stops working trying to run applications or installing things results in:
The pipe state is invalid.
The system is not accepting control messages at this time.

And when pressing ctrrl+alt+delete results in windows cannot open security options or something similar.

Thanks for any help.

Hi, been having a really annoying issue today involving one of those "Host process for Windows Services has stopped working and has closed" deals. Thus far I've tried alot of general fixes from complete scans including svc in command prompt and chkdsk at startup, even cleaning out old temp files. Nothing has worked. To compound my frustration, it seems to be linked with an inability to access Windows Update. It appears to have only started today, and what generally happens once it closes is Vista attempts to restart it over, and over again. I'm pretty much out of ideas. I'd really appreciate some help!

Below are some of the most recent error logs taken from Event Viewer.

Hi I am pulling my hair out with this one. I have a problem with a virus that is stopping me from saving MS word 2007 files when I log in as a specific user. When I click save or saveas nothing happens. I have tried all the suggestions on the web regarding template files and none work. I ran rkill and was instantly allowed to save, however when I log out and back in the problem is back. But the log file of rkill doesn't show any processes being stopped!

I have tried hyjackthis but the log file is the same before and after I run rkill

How can I find out what rkill is stopping and then permanently stop it

I have replaced a hard drive in a Satellite L 50 B. I purchased the recovery usb from Toshiba as recovery from the original disk was not possible.
My usb stick was promptly delivered to the wrong address! After the parcel was returned to myself I began the process and found that it got as far as
Finishing the installation SRS Premium Sound 3D. After a few hours I came to the conclusion that it was not going to progress any further I when into the desktop, updated it to 8.1 to see if the issue was hardware related. This seems to me that it is not. I have repeated the installation and got the same result. I suspect that the image on the usb recovery stick is corupted and so I tried to contact the support centre. They refered me to an automated animation that had no answers for my problem!

I have been at this now for days, and still no closer answer from Toshiba, and felt it was time to ask if anyone else has had this issue and managed to resolve it.

This is a long story, so I will leave off most of it.Details:XP Pro w/sp3, two bootable drives, both partitioned w/ the 1st partition active,both active partitions have XP installed,Something got corrupted between the two active partitions. No idea how as I took precautions to prevent this, but apparently not enough. I tried to restore the image of the 2nd drive, but when I did so, I got this 'logging off' dialog box during the boot process. The process stops there, but after 2 minutes it goes into a 'loop', flashing two other dialog boxes (can't read because they are too brief) every few seconds. I then tried the image from the 1st drive, but I got the same thing.Any ideas what is happening and what to do about it other that start all over?

I have just installed a Integral 16 GB SDHC card and dedicated it to ReadyBoost. Windows default settings decided to only take about 4GB of it for ReadyBoost so the rest of it is available for general use. The problem is that after I shut down the computer and then re-booted with the card in place, the computer got stuck half way through the boot process and just stayed there. I shut down the machine, removed the card from the onboard reader, re-booted and all was fine again. What's going on ?

A:SDHC ReadyBoost Card Stops Boot Process ?

Welcome to Seven Forums FredM8. Can't answer for the freezing, unless it is related. But see if the card is formatted Fat32, if so you will need to format it NTFS to use more than 4GB for Readyboost. A Guy

What you can do about that? I’m afraid not much.
As far as I know either it works or not and there is no some kind of “workaround”. You cannot force recovery installation to end installation.

Either is recovery image saved on USB defective or your notebook is the troublemaker, HDD maybe.

I presume you have started recovery image installation several times, right?
Does error message occur always after 41% of installation?

4. Click "Fix ->"


Let's look for, and delete, any program segments(prefetches) that might be present, and are associated with the 'problems' we're trying to remove from this system. To do this, let's:

1) Click "Start | Search", then search for each of these program's base name(s), in all files and folders:


2) Then if any are found in the 'prefetch' folder, delete them.

Look closely, since the 'base' name will have a bunch of random numbers and letters attached to it.


Next, Open a command prompt by:

1. Clicking "Start", then "Run...".
2. Enter "cmd" (without the quotes).

My computer was working fine on Nov. 7. I did not use it for the following 3 days, which it was turned off, but on Nov. 11, I began experiencing a large number of issues immediately after booting up. The first sign of trouble is an error message that the User Profile Service is not working, immediately followed by "Host Process for Windows Services stopped and was closed". The computer slows, but is relatively functional. After this, other windows services fail (I do not have a record of these, as the message disappears quickly.), followed by the same Host Process message. I cannot do a windows Start Search as Windows freezes after typing one letter and Windows Explorer often fails. I have tried downloading many programs and opening programs on my computer, but this often leads to a "Pipe State is Invalid" error. Windows Security Center shows that I have no virus, spyware, or anti-malware protection even though avast is active. I had a similar issue about a year ago which I eventually fixed after a series of scans and uninstalling Autodesk Revit (Not sure why that worked). This time however, scans by avast, Malwarebytes AntiMalware and Anti-Rootkit, tdss killer, Windows System File Checker, and unHack Me/RegRun Reanimator do not detect issues, and when I attempt a system restore, I get the message "System Restore did not complete successfully.

This causes my internet to disconnect randomly and also after about 5 host processes it gets stuck like that.

Also you may notice the "windows updates" thing telling me skype isnt updated. I do not have skype nad when i go to windows updates from start bar it says I am fully upgraded.

It happened again when i was patching a game and when i rebooted i discovered that even though it had frozen at 60% it jumped straight back to 98%, meaning the programme was still running in the background.

any ideas whats wrong here?

I've been having this problem since late june
basically the monitor would shut off with either a sound loop or the sound keeps going for a while then stops and the only way out is a hard reboot
it started happening mostly in games at first but now it happens even while just messing around in the OS (Win Vista x64) I tried different drivers for the GPU, I cleaned the PC from the little dust there was in (fans heatsinks etc), no luck, sometimes I'd go in a game and play for a while then it'd happen or sometimes it'd happen right away, but these lately it's been happening quite more often than it used to.

it's been suggested to me that it's the CPU overheating and that I should get a new Fan for it and some said it was the GPU being faulty (been using this computer for a little over a year now.)

I don't know if it's an overheating problem but it started happening when things got hot in the summer and I don't have Air Conditioning in room the PC is located in.

Please help

Hi Guy,

Now here's the deal, my sister just received this computer on loan from a friend. It's a personally built computer. I haven't started it so i have no idea of the specifications and i haven't gotten a chance to talk to the person who gave it to her. So... i have limited information. But the problem is that i connect the monitor and it starts up shows the manufacturer logo, then goes to the Windows loading page and then after that is finish the monitor goes into to standby as if there is no signal going to it. I don't know what that means. The tower (from what i can see from the outside) does have a video card, and that is the connection i am using. When i use the standard connection it came with it doesn't repond from the very beginning. Anywho, any help. The Monitor does work on another computer i have it hooked up my laptop as i'm speaking right now. So i do know the monitor works.





A:Monitor Stops Responding

Read other 11 answers

This just started this morning with no previous indications of problems. I'll turn on my computer, and everything will seem to be going normally. It'll run through the startup screens fine, but when it gets to the Windows XP boot screen, the monitor stops displaying anything after about a second. The green light stays on, so the monitor itself isn't shutting off. It's just a black screen. If I turn the monitor off and back on, it'll display for about a second again and then go back to the black screen like before. Also, while it's displaying, the screen seems to be a bit darker than usual, but I could be imagining that.
The computer still runs fine through all of this. I can even run it normally, so long as I'm quick and patient enough to do it in second-long increments.
I've tried restarting in safe mode, but it does the same thing. Likewise for vga display. (If that sounds completely off, it probably is. Just something I tried after seeing a tip on an old thread here.)
I'm having my girlfriend bring over her monitor tonight, so I can make sure it really is just my monitor itself and not a problem in the computer. Anything you might suggest I try in the meantime?

Edit: It's a Tyris T901DB 19" LCD monitor. Guess I should've put that in there somewhere.

A:Monitor stops displaying after about 1 second.

I'd lean toward the monitor at this point, if it was the video driver(another common cause), then it should work with VGA mode. I guess there's a chance its the video card but if you turn the monitor off and on and it works for a second it points to the monitor, with a very slight chance its the monitor cable.

I have Dell Studio XPS 8100 Desktop. The  ST2210 21.5" Full HD Widescreen Monitor stops working after a while. I changed the cable but no luck. Now I have connected 19" Sony Monitor which is working, which means the power cable and the video card and HDMI cable are fine.
Can the monitor be repaired or need to buy a new one?

Are you able to successfully use another Sysinternals utility like Process Explorer?

Can you use Process Explorer to verify that the Process Explorer driver is in fact loaded? (Select the SYSTEM process, enable DLL View in the lower pane, sort by Name, and look for an entry named PROCEXP113.SYS.)

I recently discovered that if I switch off my monitor while Microsoft Security Essentials is running a scan then the scan is paused until I switch the monitor on again.
How can I prevent this happening?

A:MSE Scan stops if monitor switched off.


MSE runs completely independantly of the monitor....but just to check, I turned off the monitor during a scan and it has no effect on MSEl, as expected.

Can you complete the steps in this tutorial (don't forget Step #5):

And can you also tell us how do you turn the monitor off?

Dear Forum,
Since some time I have a blank Reliability Monitor. I am afraid it happened after a disc cleaning, but I am not sure. Since mid-September it shows a table with no curve and no comments. An empty table. I did try to reset it. It did not help to cure it. 3 weeks later it is still the same. I liked using it from time to time, as I learned much from it. I realize this is no urgent fix, but it annoys me very much. Anyone able to help me out?
Kind regards,

UPDATE. This one works:

When Iturn on my computer the monitor turns on normally and stays on through the loading of xp, but once XP is loaded fully the monitor goes blank and the power light on it blinks as if it wasn't connected to my tower. Does anyone have any idea what thatcould mean?

A:Monitor stops working once xp is loaded!

try booting into safe mode..tap tap on f8 when you first turn it on...you could choose either last known good config or if that doesnt work choose safe mode

go into power options in your control panel and make sure everything is chosen as "never"

My PC was running fine with Windows XP Professional

and i decided to install Ubuntu 12.04 OS to run

alongside of Windows. i quit the install when it

required me to partition the hard drive since i didn't

want to mess with that. i backed out of the install

process til it shut down.
After that i couldn't get the computer to boot at

all. when turned on it goes immediately to the logo

screen which is normal but then freezes up. this logo:

screen has the options for F1 Setup, F10 Recovery, etc
but clicking on them has no effect at all.
at this point Cntrl-Alt_delete doesn't work and i

need to hold the start button to shut down.

I tried using my Win XP install disk to do a repair

or clean install if necessary but computer just goes

to the logo screen and stops.
I also tried removing the battery with the computer

disconnected from power but also no change.

Any suggestions for this fix will be greatly

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to Boot Priority. Using your arrow key, move CD rom drive to First Boot Device. Save and Exit. You may also be able to press F12 at bootup to change the boot order.
Put the XP CD in reboot. You should see the message Press Any Key To Boot From CD. Go to the Recovery Console. Here type FIXBOOT and press enter, and try to boot normally. If that fails, back in the RC type FIXMBR press enter and try to boot normally.

I want to uninstall Process Monitor. I don't use it. I don't need it. I just had it up a minute ago to look through it and after I closed it, it started grabbing 90% to 100% of the CPU. I've also had a couple of programs object to the fact that I had a debugger running - when I didn't know there was a debugger running or even realize I had such a thing. SO - I am thinking - maybe that issue is related. I'm pretty sure I can just reboot and get Process Monitor to stop hogging all my system resources. The issue is, I just want rid of it and can find no way to uninstall. No listing in Add/Remove Programs. It doesn't show up in Revo Uninstaller. No uninstaller came with the program. Can anybody help?Thanks.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:How do I UNINSTALL Process Monitor?

SysInternals' ProcessMonitor comes either in ZIP or ZIP SFX distribution archive. It has no setup program. You just unzip/extract the contents to a folder and start using it. As such, it cannot be uninstalled. If you no longer want it, then you may delete it.

Hi, All
We need some of the functionalities of Process Monitor (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/procmon). But want to develop our own program that include some basic features of Process Monitor, but without GUI etc. We will need to monitor
events of process creation, file access (file open to read /write) and network connection. We will use it mostly for Windows Servers.

Seems that Process Monitor is based on a driver Procmon23.sys. Is there any document we can write our own program to talk to this driver?
Or is there any other driver or open source daemon that we can use to monitor process creation, file access, registry modification, and network connections?
Thanks a lot for your help!

So my computer has Windows 7 and is a gaming computer. The thing is that it sometimes shuts off randomly when I am running too many things at once. This is where it gets bad. I turn it back on and the monitor still works perfectly fine. I make the computer go to sleep and turn the monitor off for the night. I get home later to play some games to find out my monitor says it has no signal. I made sure everything was plugged in, and they were, so I ended up getting a new monitor thinking mine just broke of being old. This is a brand new monitor, it's working, then my computer shuts off randomly while doing an AVG virus scan and playing minecraft. I turn it back on, and the monitor still works. I then let my computer sleep and turn off my monitor, so I can go to my friend's house for the super bowl. I come back later to look at some stuff, but then my monitor says "No signal." This is the same thing that happened to my old monitor, so it has to be the computer. Right? I hope someone can help me because I don't want to go and pay for a new one when my friend's dad made this specifically for gaming for me.

So, I set the monitor power down (Turn Off Monitor in Power Options) to 15 or 20 mins, works fine for a day or 2, then the monitor stops switching off. If I change the power down delay a bit, it works for another few days. Same if I reboot. Googled everywhere I can think of, no luck. Anyone got any bright ideas?

Hi There,

I hope someone can help me, I'm new to all this.....

We have an old PC with only USB 1.1 slots, so bought a USB 2.0 PCI card. Installed the drivers, slotted in the card, and when we boot up the monitor doesn't start up. We have tried moving it around different slots, but no joy.

Originally I put the card in before installing the driver, but when the monitor didn't boot up I then installed the driver first and then put the card in. First time we booted up the monitor did come on, tested the slots by plugging in a USB key, and then it crashed as we started to plug the peripherals in. Now no matter what I do the monitor won't start up when the card is in the slot.

Don't know how much of this is relevant, but we're on XP and the only thing that seems a bit strange is that there is one part of the PC stuck onto the inside of the back wall of the case with tape, it's at the end of a flat, wide grey cable - sorry, don't know what it is and if it is relevant?!

Can anyone help?
Ta in advance!

I was forced to reboot my computer after waiting for 20 minutes. After I reboot, it works fine for a while, then my computer monitor and audio stops working again, and I tried a few more times with plug tweaks and other minor changes, but monitor and audio still stops working at random times.

I have a desktop pc with Vista Home Basic
Ei-system - with Flat Generic PnP Monitor - Adapter: VIA Chrome9...
160Gb - 520 RAM -

Recently I have started having a problem with my pc. After running for 30mins or 1hr, the pc stops sending signal to the monitor; monitor goes to sleep (light goes from green to amber), although I press spacebar or Enter on keyboard it does not 'wake up'/work. But pc stays on, only monitor is sleeping. The only way to get the computer to work again is by switching off the power button at the back (then press it back to 'on') of Ei-system computer tower, then switch on the button in front to restart computer. Sometimes it works for 15mins, other times 30mins or 1 hr; or 3 hrs or even 6 hours at times; then it stops again: monitor goes to sleep, while pc keeps running but cannot do any work with black screen. I know for sure that the problem is not the monitor, I have changed monitor and the problem persists. What could be wrong? Could anyone help?
Thank you in advance.

A:PC (Vista) stops sending signal to monitor

If you are sure it is not the monitor then it sounds like a hardware issue. Probably the power supply is failing to provide enough amps and the monitor is seeing that as the PC having gone to sleep. I recently had a PC which began rebooting when I plugged in a USB drive. That system had been working fine for 2 years and quite suddenly developed the dislike of the USB drive. The power supply was right on the very edge of what it could supply.

Before tearing into the PC though, I would check

Control Panel
Hardware and Sound
Power Options
Choose when to turn off the display
..Make sure all settings are "Never" or "Do nothing"
Change Plan Settings
..Make sure all settings are "Never" or "Do nothing"

Give that a try.
