Windows 7: Windows Memory Diagnostic is looping!

Windows Memory Diagnostic is looping!

I tried to run the Windows Memory Diagnostic (WMD) tool, but nothing happened. Except that when I boot up, the icon for WMD is always there. In Task Manager it says that MDres.exe is running.

Now, Ive searched around and there are basically two answers. One is presented HERE
How To Remove and Disable Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool My Digital Life

It doesnt work for me, neither for a lot of other people.

The only other solution I've come across is to reinstall Win 7!

Does anyone here have a different solution?
Please!

Cross check your memory with memtest86 bootable CD for 5-6 passes as it could mean memory problems.

Next, run sfc /scannow to check integrity of System files.

Finally the next best thing before doing a Clean Reinstall is to Repair Install which reinstalls the OS while keeping programs, files and settings in place. However, botched settings can be transferred back in.

Others may have a more specific fix but I wanted to get you started since you've waited long enough.

Hello,

I could locate a couple of ways to break the loop.

1) WMD makes some registry changes, you can undo those.

2) Some people have reported that pressing "X" breaks the loop.
