Windows 7: need someone to look up some system info on your PC

15 Jan 2012   #11


Yes, I checked and have at least 2 weeks worth. Interestingly, ALL my restore points related to any system image I've ever taken (going back to 2/28/10 original install date) are available still.

It's just so puzzling. The only thing I can think is that I swore when I originally went to the owner screen, it said "unable to show owner" or something mysterious. But, I was looking at all kinds of traces on that screen.....

It works if I right-click and start it manually. Something can be learned from this and I'm a bit stubborn at the moment.

Even moreso, when you just logoff vs. shutting down, would these traces stay alive?

I'm afraid that I don't know if they do or not.

I would also think that system restore only deals with .exe and .dll modules? IOW, if this trace info is in some file somewhere, I doubt System Restore would have an earlier copy of it. And I highly doubt those trace entries are in the registry anywhere...

Just found this. Will check when I get home:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\Circular Kernel Context Logger

Well, I'll be.

If anyone would like to export the registry for the above CKCL key and attach in a .txt file......

Brink, if you're game and not averse to chewing up some disk space on the SevenForums server, could you screen shot each panel (Trace session, Stop condition, File, Directory, et. al.) on the right-click > Properties for CKCL? You can skip the security panel as I've gone over that thoroughly.

I recall mucking with the buffering. I think maybe I have the max set to 1 (greyed out option, though) and the min value is 4.

If you're extra energetic, the registry export of that key will possibly help, too.

Here you go Jim. I hope it helps.

In stopped state (Event Trace Sessions):

Thanks a ton.

This conflicts with an earlier post of your screenshot of CKCL. In that prior screenshot, your keywords(any) had 0x00. I asked for the CKCL primary screen shot from the STARTUP (not running) branch. To verify, was that earlier post's screenshot of the running CKCL or was it in the STARTUP event trace session?

I hope it's my maximum buffer (I think it's greyed out and still set to 1) but I definitely reset the buffering to 4K size (had it larger) and with minimum buffers set to 2.

I will get this damn thing to work again. The Status registry value is the status of the last start command for that. If I see an 0x0D in mine, then I know it's definitely my parameters.

The screenshot here was in Startup Event Trace Sessions with the CKCL already stopped and gone in Event Trace Sessions. I also verified this on the laptop, and it had 0x0 as well.

OK. Thanks for the clarification.

I'm somewhat surprised there isn't an export/import feature for these traces like there is for Task Scheduler events.

I hope my reg has something funky in it that's easily fixable via regedit or the GUI panels (same thing to some degree).

It would be nice if it did. I would just export mine for you.

OK. My maximum buffers option was greyed out and set to 0. Obviously illegal settings as minimum buffers is 2. I had a different LogFileMode. I also have ClockType and FlushTimer in my reg entry which I deleted.

Changed everything to match yours. However, when I access the GUI, my "enabled" option is checked whereby yours is greyed out.

I manually edited logfilemode and maximum buffers. Then the gui now has the max buffer no longer greyed out.

Rebooted and still no go. It was alive early in the boot by my status in the registry entry is 0x57 (87 decimal) which is invalid parameter.

However, each time I access the gui, those 2 add'l reg entries get put back in.


Master Brink, need one more favor.

Can you export:


There's a long string for the CKCL GUID.

System info: other os unknown
More of a curiosity than a problem. Both in 7 and Vista under system info it says other operating system unknown. I was wondering with a duel boot set up is this line for displaying the alternate os? And if so does anyone show anything other than not available?
