BROKER ISSUE

Q: BROKER ISSUE

Hello,
I've got an issue with session disconnection.
My environment is following :
- 1 broker server 2012 R2
- 5 RDS Server 2012 R2
- VDI client
When a user connect with rdp script , the request go to the broker and the connection is established on a RDS server.
My problem is sometimes when a user connect from another computer , the session already connected don't turn off and they have two simultaneous connection on two computer.
I searched in the event viewer and i can see that the broker receive the request and redirect to a RDS server.
When i try to open the session on another computer , the broker don't detect the first connexion and establish an another connection with a different ID instead of turn off the session and redirect the other computer.
It doesn't work since start of October, may be a KB update ?...
Thanks

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.)

I was looking through my Task Manager last night and saw something called Runtime Broker running. According to this article:

What is RuntimeBroker.exe and Why is it Running?

it's only supposed to take up about 3MB of RAM. However, mine was using up 865MB of RAM and I didn't have apps running in the background. Insane!

I shut it down and didn't notice any issues arising from doing so. Just curious if anyone has any further info on this process and maybe why it was so high in my RAM usage.

A:Runtime Broker

I've seen mine get up to a few hundred MB when running, and depending on the heap resources it needs (and how much is running - whether that be desktop or modern apps), it could get pretty large.

If it's getting over 500MB or so, I'd recommend running VMMap against the runtimebroker.exe process, saving the data, .zipping and uploading it somewhere, and letting us review it.

So randomly lately Run time broker has been causing some issues on my laptop, it randomly started coming up using anywhere from 10-20% of my CPU when I open any large program on my pc.

I disabled other windows updates.
I changed the hex value from 3 to 4 to disable it. It worked for a day then after restart its back and being a dirty virus again.
Problem being now, Before I changed 3 to 4 I had deleted the entire TimeBroker Folder in the regedit.exe system. But it was still open for me to change the 3 to a 4.

Now I can no longer change the Hex value to Disable it, not like it worked anyways.

So I am looking for a solution to forever disable/remove this TimeBroker from my pc. It is honestly worse than your minor virus, it takes up so much CPU, and it wont go away.

Periodically I notice a lot of LAN traffic from my PC and looking at Task Mgr I see it is from Runtime Broker that uses 30% CPU. I've looked at what it is for (intermediary between apps and their use of permissions) but the mystery is that it is accessing my NAS device and goes on for ages as the NAS has a lot of files on it.

Anyone else seen this behaviour? I find it hard to see why it has to hammer my NAS periodically but maybe this is normal??

A:Runtime Broker Process

As you can see from this article:

What is RuntimeBroker.exe and Why is it Running?

Runtime broker is part of the security subsystem of Universal Apps (then called Metro apps). Essentially, all access to files and other resources goes through the Runtime broker.. so what this means is that it's only accessing files on the behalf of another Universal app. This is probably something like the Photos app or something that searches through indexed files and catalogs them, or indexes them.

You should use something like FileMonitor to see what it's actually accessing if you're interested.

Dear all,

First post. Desperate for solution.

Have a problem in that whenever I boot my laptop in win 8.1 (pre-installed) the Store Broker opens and immediately starts using excess of 90% of my CPU. In addition I cannot download anything on the Windows Store.
This happens:
This happens on boot and when I end task in the task manager, it pops up again later, even if I don't open any apps. It always starts when I open Store.

I have been seeking help from Microsoft Communities but despite many hopeful solutions nothing has worked for me (and many others).

See this for main thread (sorry to put this in but there are so many possible solutions I cannot list them all):

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-performance/why-does-store-broker-wshostexe-keep-killing-my/4c878d5d-de09-4648-b844-834383f447f3?page=6

I, and others, have tried everything proposed in the above. For some, some solutions work, for others like me they don't.

Brand new Toshiba laptop. McAfee anti-virus (tried solving by turning off), hardware working fine.

Hoping there may be genius among you who knows how to fix this!

Many thanks.

Well I read through your post and the link to the other one, if I missed something and post something you have already tried let me know, I did a bing search on the subject you are not alone and it seems to be a bug which should be fixed soon, however it seems like the two biggest things causing the problem is one did you go into computer settings through metro and ensure that your Microsoft Account has been verified? Also did you check your clock and date settings to ensure even down to the time zone is correct? If yes or these don't seem to fix it then let me know and we will continue.

Hi,
This afternoon I noticed my HDDs were copping a pounding. When I opened Task Manager I could see Runtime Broker was using around 30% of the CPU. When I ended the task, the HDDs went quiet and CPU usage went to 90% System Idle. A short time later this occurred again.

I have found a few reports of this occurring (see attached) but I am reluctant to change the Registry until I know more about what else I may be stopping.
I did disable 'show windows tips', to no avail.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Morning All,

I have been reading up on the Runtime Broker using high RAM and not being able to get any help, it is just this one app that does it

My Laptop has 4GB of RM and normal use it sits at around 40% to 50% used

When I launch Xbox Music app, runtime broker RAM usage increase until it gets to about 2.5 GB (95% RAM used), it then stays like this for a long time causing my machine to go slow, eventually this will drop to about 800MB and everything runs fine (but this is still far too much RAM being used)

I do not have this problem when running any other app

I have tried a reinstall and also disabled live tile (believe live tiles can cause this)

Anyone know how to fix the issue if the problem app is known (other than don't use it)
and is there a cache directory for music I can delete to see if it makes any difference

I am on slow BB so don't want to do another re install as I takes 2 days to re download all my music pass content

Thanks

Could be a number of things:
- your last 'trip' to the Store you didn't sign out,
- you may not have completely closed the Store app,
- you may have a bunch of updates pending,

Hi folks,
 
First, great forum, it's an awesome resource.
 
So I recently bought a gamepad for my new Windows 8 PC (and it was a bit buggy on a game that I just installed) and I wanted to check and see if it was working properly. I searched Google and went what I thought was the official Windows 8 App website (yeah, I'm an idiot) and downloaded a program called Joystick Tester, here is the link (oddly, its actually the first search item that pops up) -- the actual site "looks" like an official Windows 8 site, but it's not:

How to stop "Runtime Broker" from running constantly in the background.
Running win 10 Home 32 bit upgraded from Win 7 Home Premium

A:Stop "Runtime Broker" from running constantly in the background

Someone mentioned that they solved this problem by going to Settings, System Display, Notifications & actions. Turn OFF "Show me tips about windows".

If that doesn't work, you can edit the Registry to disable "Runtime Broker", but this will also prevent Microsoft Store Apps from running.

Runtime Broker is a service called Time Broker, which can be disabled through editing the registry.

Right-click on the Start Menu Icon. Go to RUN and type regedit.exe and select OK.

Find the following entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000003

Change the 3 to a 4.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000004

4 is Disabled, 3 is Manual and 2 is Automatic startup.

Before editing, the original value was 3. Set to 4 to disable. Just change the 3 to a 4 through the MODIFY menu selection, exit regedit and reboot your system.

Hey, I recently put together a PC and I've been having problems with it since. When I initially built it, the specs were:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
ATI Radeon HD 3870x2 (the card with with 2 GPU's)
500W unbranded PSU
1 added 120m coolermaster fan

Shortly after I started using my PC there was a power surge that knocked the power supply out. I recently got a new power supply. A 650W Silverstone PSU that I thought was more than enough for this. The problem that would occur now is that the computer would restart during games and sometimes while processing/rendering videos in adobe premiere.

When I would enable the 'crossfire' option on my card (to enable both GPU's to work) the computer would no longer just 'restart' the entire screen would hang or the colours would go out of sync shortly after which I'd have to restart the computer. This having happened I assumed the problem was with the graphics card, not the new 650W silverstone I got. I upgraded to a newer card; Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb. The specs are now as follows:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

Hi
I have a problem with a T7500 tower.
The unit doesn't pass the POST, bringing the solid light 1 and the 1-3-2 beeps code.  I guess I have the S8 code with the light:


It would seem to be a RAM memory issue.  If I remove the RAM in slot 1 and live the 2nd RAM in slot 2, it moves to light 1-3 issue with the same 1-3-2 beep code:
If I move the 2nd RAM in slot 1, I still have light 1-3 code and 1-3-2 beep code.
If I replace the 2nd RAM by the first RAM in slot 1, still 1-3 light code and 1-3-2 beep code.
If I place the 2 RAM in slot 2 and 3, I'm back to 1 light code and 1-3-2 beep code.
Using slot 1 & 3 gives the same light 1 code and 1-3-2 beep code.
Any use of slot 4, 5 or 6 brings the lights 1-3 solid on and 1-3-2 beep code which after reading the documentation seems normal (slot 1, 2 and 3 should be filled first).
However the unit will boot, pass the POST and BIOS if it is not used for few days.
I know that the BIOS is on version A16.
I've tried the Power Supply Diagnostic, which passed successful:
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19628318

With all that I think it is hardware issue, but I don't understand why I can't succeed the POST with 1 RAM memory.
Or is the problem elsewhere e.g power supply or motherboard?
I'll try the memory test next time I can boot.

Any help will be appreciated.

The computer's a year old, running XP, and my boyfriend and I have no idea what's wrong with it (it's his). I'd put in hardware support but I don't know which piece of hardware may be corrupted, exploding as we speak, or what.

It began last night. He's done this before -- he has two monitors, one meant for a TV (I believe) and another old computer screen. Normally it runs on the TV one because it's bigger. He switched to the older one to show me how he can adjust the settings so that it's all vertical. That was great and dandy and we didn't expect any issues. He's done it before and it really isn't doing much to the computer.

Later, after midnight, he goes to switch everything back to normal. First, the computer acts like the monitor is there but that it can't do anything -- it tries to go into sleep mode or something. Then I suggest he unplug, shut down, plug things back in normally, and power back up. This appears to work.

I was a bit happy then, until we got to the XP loading screen. It's going... and then after, it flashes, then goes black. Nothing comes up, nothing does anything.

And so the three hour saga of last night begins. We restart, we spam F8, we get into safe mode, he disables Nvidia but can't open the application. Nor does his mouse function in safe mode (I know some don't, but it really doesn't help the situation).

Hi! I'm hoping someone can help me out here because I'm majorly frustrated at this point.

Regardless of the device I use, I can preview photos on the device and they are the correct color. They are also the correct color when viewed in paint, photoshop, or quicktime windows preview. However, they get fuzzy and green when viewed in a windows gallery or when uploaded to a site such as imageshack. I can open the same file side by side, one in photoshop and one in windows live photo gallery, at the same time, and one will be the right color and the other will be green.

Here are examples. This photo appears blue to me. This one is slightly green and fuzzier. The same file in the same format was used to upload both. What really confuses me, however, is that I viewed the link to the green photo on a different computer, and it looks the same as the blue one. So as far as I know, everyone who clicks on those links is thinking, "But they're the same and you're crazy." Which is arguable depending on the crowd but they really don't look the same to me.

I'm using a Slimline s3220n with Windows Vista Home Edition and NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Graphics. This is a fairly recent issue and is, apparently, inexplicably selective.

The issue is simply everytime I've used Etrust virus scan when in Internet explorer (have to be) I minimize it, and when I bring it to normal it's fine, but minimize it and bring it up when it's in the Java folder it freezes, should I do an individual scan on the Java folder to see if it has viruses or just make it a special do not scan folder and un-click it when scanning?
 

A:Solved: Etrust Viruscan does not like Java Program folder: not virus issue but scanning issue

Hi, Often the applets stored from Java usage will trigger either a detection or an issue as you are seeing from antivirus scanners.

I'd suggest clearing the Java cache: see the attached screenshot, your version may be slightly different but you should be able to see where to look, and what to do. (The attached pic is from a slightly older version of the Java...the steps below are up to date, though)

Control Panel> (Switch to Classic View)> open Java

Find the Settings tab/button, and open that...then find the Delete Files button and click that.
It's just deleting the temporary files left from Java applet usage.

Then, after clearing the cache, run your scan again and see if it works correctly.

Hello!

I upgraded to Windows 10 today. I have two issues.

1. I play a game called "Starcraft II" and I have a problem with the game minimizing and maximizing sometimes very slowly, every 5th attempt or so. During this time it takes up to 40 seconds for the game to go through with the maximizing/minimizing process, and ending the task with task manager is not possible.

I have tried messing with MSConfig and reinstalling the game. No luck. Any suggestions?

2. I have an old HDD on my PC installed with windows 7, and on my windows 7 SSD installation I could simply search for shortcuts I placed from my HDD into my SSD. This is no longer possible. Any advice?

Thank you!

Typing this super quick. As I'm sure, the stupid popup will appear again. When trying to access any websites, a message comes up. It isn't an error message or the "unresponsive script" message. It is different. It has lots of code on it. Probably the url of what it's trying to access. This would normally happen in the background, and the user shouldn't see it.
 
I googled part of the message, and it mentioned something about a user agent...whatever that is. I just want the message(s) to stop popping up! Any help is much appreciated.

Hey, I just got a new motherboard/cpu/smaller case... really nice looking media center edition black case. It all booted up fine, got most the drivers, I have an 80gb HDD on SATA0 and a 320gb on SATA1, 32 bit on 0, 64 bit on 1, Default to 64 bit. It was all working fabulously before, and I fried my CPU, so I decided to go the extra mile for a new mobo and case as well. My 32 bit XP is fine, has all the drivers, everything is tested, USB front and back, front and back audio, and everything else.

On x64 though, it had all the drivers, I even saw it in Device Manager previous to the chaos, and from what I think did it, was GlarysTools or something like that... I uninstalled it, so it has no 'recovery' backup from before. Long story short, I have no device manager that properly works, the console will open, but no devices show, I've done work with it, I've researched and such, and found out that it might have something to do with Plug and Play. I have no 'Plug and Play' service, that could be an issue, though I don't know for sure, but I have Universal Plug and Play Device Host, and SSDP Discovery Service, though both of those are started, and properly working on 'automatic' setting, have restarted the PC numerous times, and restarted the services numerous times with no avail. I also get the message "Configuration Manager: The Plug and Play service or another required service is not available." when double-clicking ANY service. It still goes to the properties prompt,...

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I posted the same on their tech support forum but I'm beginning to think the issue, while it may have been exacerbated by the game Guildwars 2, is likely on my end, but I have a number of suggestions, none of which has worked. Also tried my own stuff.
 
Anyway, here is what I posted on their own tech forum:

Having a lot of issues getting into gw2…I have bits and pieces of problems others have had in the past, but nothing seems to work, so I’m re-downloading the game, basically. All I want to do is play the freaking game, why does it have to be so much trouble?
 
 
Once in awhile I will get that blue and yellow graphical glitch on something. Just more info for diagnosis. If and when this happens, it’s always immediately apparent at character select. However…The biggest problem I have with GW2 is also on login – it either crashes or bluescreens my computer right after clicking play and the client tries to load for 5-10 seconds. For the past few days, 90% of the time it just crashes. If I try to patch after that point, the patcher stops at Downloading 0KB and will not budge from it. Not even to log in. I have to reboot my computer to get it past “Downloading 0KB”.

Unfortunately, though I thought I did, I have no images of the odd cyan/yellow graphics glitch, and I have no way of getting one (google didn't turn up any that looked the same as mine, granted some were similar).
 
Edit - I also noticed after re-enabling page memory on my primary drive after freeing up some space, that in the error logs, the amount of paged memory in use is for some reason higher. I can't imagine why this is, but maybe I don't understand the process.

Hello, I am was wondering if someone could help me determine if there is an infection with my computer. The most recent issue is that I am getting an "C:\WINDOWS\winstart.bat is offline - it is currently not available (42006)" error on two recent Quick Scans using avast! in the past two days. I've run SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS), MBAM, Spybot S&D, MB Anti-rootkit and have found no issues other than tracking cookies. In addition I had tried to install & run Kapersky's free one-time scanner but was unable to install twice due to "insufficient" permissions and once where the installation stopped during the download phase (some message about " server connection").  Note if I look for the winstart.bat file using Windows Explorer it doesn't show the file even with the option of seeing hidden files yet when I run show-hidden -f it shows the file as being hidden in that location (I.e. C:\Windows\winstart.bat). Note that the only virus issues I have had over the past months have been when ComboFix was compromised with Sality: I believe I isolated that issue as AVG, SAS, SpyBot and CCleaner were able to eradicate most (??) of the issues.
 
In addition, in the past I have had issues with Chrome which were unusual.

I've heard about useing nlite to put the drivers in a cd with the rebootstuff but i can't getit to read the drivers too. it was easy enough going to vista as you could insert a flash drive with drivers on it.

Hello forum,
So I just updated my Nvidea graphics card, and for some reason after restarting my laptop, in order to install these files to the system, the "System Thread Exception Not Handled" Blue screen error flashed on my screen, and later redirected me to an automatic repair screen, which attempted to fix this issue.
I ended up restarting the laptop on safe mode, uninstall my Nvidea graphics card and completely reinstall it from scratch.
But for some reason it keeps giving me the same error each time I restart my laptop.
After some research online, apparently there's an issue with Avast and Nvidea?
You will find attached the SF Diagnostic Tool grab all option files needed to view the issue at hand.
Any help would greatly be helpful.
Many are saying that I've not been installing the corrent drivers, but that's not possible, as it's directly from the MSI website (GT70 0NE) linked to the official Nvidea website, saying that the driver includes my graphics card (680M).
While other people are saying that maybe Avast is causing some issue towards the graphics card?
I have the Avast 2014 Professional Antivirus.
Laptop Specs:
Windows 8.1
MSI Dragon Edition 2, GT70 0NE, Intel Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40 GHz 64 bit

Any help would greatly be appreciated, I'm currently running my laptop without the nVidea Graphics Card Drivers, and seems to be fine so far.

Almost exactly 1 year ago I built a computer, here is the original configuration:

Apevia ATX-AS680W power supply (680w) - carried over from old build

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz

WD D50 01AALS-00L3B2 (500gb standard HDD) - also carried over from old build

Running windows 7 ultimate 64bit

Computer is built, runs fine, no issues for (if I recall) at least the first few months. One day it shuts down randomly. No power down, no BSOD, no power surge, no extreme load, no extreme heat, no freeze, screen artifacts, nothing that would give a clue, it simply instantaneously (almost faster than pulling the plug) ceases to be on. I search for error logs, check wiring, check PSU, seating of cards, etc, install CPUID HWMonitor to watch heat, etc. Issue does not repeat itself for days, then happens randomly again. Over the course of a couple of months it recurs constantly, but never for a "reason", there's no power issues, no loose wires, not based on heat, not based on load, not based on specific software or anything I can find.

I believe the 3 details are correct, as i am looking at the utorrent.exe file right now, which is sitting on that path. The only issue i can think of is that, since i am running win7 64bit, there nay be some sort of problem with the "(x86)" bit in the path name.

Hello Andy,

If you were just wanting to run the utorrent.exe file, then you would just need to use either command below to do so instead. The net start command is for services instead.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\utorrent.exe"

OR

Hi,

Chemist has been kind enough to help me in the virus/trojan sub-forum and has given me the all clear.

I have a couple of other issues with my laptop if anyone has the time to help.

I have windows 7 installed on my laptop. (Let me know if more details and which are needed, if any)

1. I think Aero has stopped working. Saw some error message which went away pretty quick but now my background is set to fill colour and won't let me change it to anything else. Aero itself must be working as if I click Alt + Tab, I can still skip through the programs in use by me (which I believe is an aero function?)

2. When I start up my computer or restart, I see the following message:

Catalyst Control Centre
Host application has stopped working
Microsoft is checking for a solution to this problem.

It stays for about 5-10 secs and then disappears. I haven't noticed anything else stop functioning (and admittedly this error has been showing for some time but I haven't been able to find any solutions by browsing the web) but if there is a fix/error, would be great!

Thanks.
