Windows 7: Reliabilty Index

Reliabilty Index

Not sure where to post this.

Reliability index has stopped working (again). Never really fixed it before. It was cured on a reload. If it never works it's not worth a reload.
Actions taken so far:
1. Ran sfc with no violations.
2. Reset the reliability database per the tutorial (also checked MS for their procedure which matched the tute)
3. Called up task scheduler and made sure the Rac Task would run which it does. The reliability window gives the message to wait when the task is running which seems to indicate that is OK.
Task history show starts and completions.
This would lead me to believe there are no reports. What services write these reports and where are they located?

I found three services related to event reporting that were set to manual start. I set them to Auto and started them. have to wait now I guess.

Reset the files in the Rac directory twice.
Took ownership of the Rac directory and changed the security settings.
Tweaked the Rac Task in Task Manager several times decided it was running from it history window.
Checked out Event Viewer and reports did not seemed corrupted.
Worked in Group Policy editor and turned on some reports that appeared not to be enabled.
Did some various other things that I could think of.
Reset the data files in the Rac Directory again and whoa! The graph started to draw.
Wonder how long that will last. I'm not sure where I was working when it became operable. Oh well I guess it was good for experience.

Hi! I've used Index.dat Analyzer a couple of times in the past when I've been wanting to find information regarding my history that I've deleted (either by accident or because I thought I wouldn't need it any more) and it's been great. I've been able to find what I needed and without too much...
