Rebooted the system and all seems fine. Just wondering what running the wbadmin.exe as an administrator might have triggered. As stated, the command window was just a flash so no idea what occurred. Anyone have any idea what running wbadmin outside the command prompt might do? Any way to check a log of some kind for info on what it may have done?
Glad you got rid of them finally.

Running that wbadmin.exe didn't do anything to your system, it is just the command line interface.

I did the same thing you did, nothing to worry about.

I work with a large software suite. The installer for this suite is really just a collection of many stand-alone installers. If SR is on when I run the installation, it takes a very long time. Additionally, since this is a collection of other installers, SR is somewhat useless to use as a...
