Wait for Task Manager to close and open again.
Select the tab named Performance.
Click on the button named Resource Monitor...

Once Resource Monitor opens, let us know what you see...
...maybe via another screenshot.
Thanks. I did as you suggested. When I clicked on "Show processes from all users" I get the list of all processes running. The TM did not close. I had to close it. Here is a screenshot of what I get. This is typical for any way I launch resmon.exe. It just sits there with the hourglass running and nothing happens. Regards, Bob.

Hmm, that's really strange and not normal. I wonder what's holding it up.

Usually the AV programs or the firewall are the culprits. Have you tried to disable those for a test.

Ah yes, the see thru window - I've seen it many times.
Just never in an app that is a part of the OS.

BTW, if you move the window around using the title bar, you may find that the see thru image is a snapshot that you can move around.

What antivirus app are you using?

I would uninstall it for a test. Disabling it does not remove the low level file filters (or so I'm told).

You are right. It is like a snapshot of the window. I can move it around and the items in the window move with it. I have tried uninstalling Avast with no luck. I am stumped! Regards, Bob.

edit: You can forget about the folder named Sysnative. I have no clue where I got that. Even more puzzling is the fact that I usually copy/paste info like that, so I don't know where I could have copied that path from.

The file that should be running for Resource Monitor is:
"C:\Windows\System32\perfmon.exe"



original post: ============================

Please download Process Explorer.
There is nothing to install.
Just open the ZIP file and copy the files to some temp place.

Right click on the app and select Run as admin from the context menu.
Once the app window opens...
...locate the menu bar: click on View, Select Columns...

Once the Select Columns settings window opens...
Select the tab named Process Image
Add a check by Command Line and Integrity Level
Close that settings window.

On the menu bar, click on View again
Then Update Speed
Set that to 0.5 seconds

On the menu bar, click on Options
Then on Difference Highlight Duration...
Set that to 9 seconds.

Open Resource Monitor any way that you wish.
Process Explorer should be running at the High integrity level
...and the Command Line should be similar to this:
"C:\Windows\Sysnative\perfmon.exe" /res

I did exactly as you stated up to after setting tbe 9 seconds. I left it running and ran resmon.exe as Admin. It did not open. (Only the same blank window with the hourglass). Am I supposed to get some info from all the info from Process Explorer. I lost you on the second sentence of your last paragraph. Sorry for all the questions as I am not familiar with all your final paragraph terminology and instructions. Regards, Bob.

No apologies needed - I was in a rush.

While this is true:
Process Explorer should be running at the High integrity level

I should have written:
Resource Monitor should be running at the High integrity level

Is that what you see?


In the column named Command Line, you should see this:
"C:\Windows\Sysnative\perfmon.exe" /res
The last part will not be in red - but that is the part that I want to see if you see.

Also, is perfmon.exe starting from this folder:
C:\Windows\Sysnative\

Hi. After I set the 9 seconds am I supposed to make a folder named Sysnative in Windows and put the Process Explorer files into it. I don't have a folder with that name in Windows now. Then I am supposed to run it from the Command Prompt with C:\Windows\Sysnative\perfmon.exe /res.

Is there any chance we could chat by PM and Skype?

Best regards, Bob.
