Windows 7: Winsat misbehaving

10 May 2011   #1

Winsat misbehaving

First, is there a difference between using the following cmdline and just going to cp > performance and ... tools > advanced tools > Clear all windows experience indices scores and re-rate the system. C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-w..ystemassessmenttool_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_d9bafd47cdf9833b\winsat.exe formal -restart clean The real reason im asking though is cause when I run the cmdline the scores are reset to 'Not scored' when Im running this all of a sudden. I have tried deleting C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore and the log ofc. The log btw as far as I can tell is fine. It says it writes the scores to registry. YOu can read winsat.log at pastebin - Someone - post number 2056333 Any ideas how to get back to getting the scores filled with the cmdline? Thanks for your help.

Just a head ups for those of you who might have come here. It seems my command line is the same as going CP>Performance information and tools > Advanced tools > clear all windows experience index scores and re-rate the system.

In the interest of feeding the collective monster, I'm curious to see how well our different GPU setups perform.. Since the majority of systems hit the 7.9 limit so easily these days, the only real way to compare them, is to look at the raw values. The How.. Open an elevated command prompt...

Hello fellow members :). Recently (the last week or so) I started experiencing very very very slow load times of even simple web pages such as Google or the forum's index, using FireFox. At times it wouldn't load at all until no matter how long I wait until I close the tab and give another...

Icon Association Misbehaving!
This seems like a gigantic bug, but i don't see many others suffering from it, so i don't understand what's up. Windows 7 x64 seems to loose icon associations to particular software. I'm not talking about those MyDocs, MyPictures etc directories (User Shell folders, are they called?). It started...
