BATCH PROGRAMS [Standalone].

The members and quests who use this forum know how professional, informative and helpful it is!

In order to help members solve their problems/issues we often ask them to run certain programs and perform certain tasks and then upload [post] the results to the forum for us to look at. To help make doing these easier and possibly avoiding typing errors I have written the following batch scripts.

NOTE: The light blue text below after => are links to the relevant batch scripts [download them to the desktop] and tutorials, just click them!

chkdsk [Check Disk] - ALL Parameters . . .

Click here [direct download] => CHKDSK_ALL_Parameters.bat.

chkdsk is a Windows utility program for detecting and repairing any corruptions of the file system [FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS drives]. Sometimes this helps if you run it two or three times to get the full recovery of the file system.

This batch script has 5 Options . . .

Option [1] ABORT this process and EXIT.

Option [2] chkdsk [non-invasive read-only and detect mode].
This analyses the OS drive and reports any errors or corruptions, but doesnít repair them.

Option [3] chkdsk C: /F [repair mode].
Run this if there any errors or corruptions reported when running the above. This one does repair any errors [file system errors or corruptions] on the OS drive but doesnít scan for any bad sectors. This cannot be run while the HDD is in use [locked] and is therefore scheduled [displays a prompt] to be run at the next reboot. After it has run, Windows will automatically boot.

Option [4] chkdsk C: /R [repair mode].
Run this if there are still any errors or corruptions reported. This one does repair any errors [file system errors or corruptions] on the OS drive and does scan for any bad sectors. It then attempts to repair or recover any readable information [implies /F]. This cannot be run while the HDD is in use [locked] and is therefore scheduled [displays a prompt] to be run at the next reboot. After it has run, Windows will automatically boot.

Option [5] Extract the chkdsk [ wininit ] log.
This Extracts the current status [output data] for either chkdsk C: /F or chkdsk C: /R [which MUST be run FIRST in order to have the current run data available!] and creates a .txt [text] file on the desktop. It does NOT extract the current status [output data] for chkdsk [See the NOTE: below for this option].

You will then need to upload the .txt file[s] from the desktop [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

NOTE: The chkdsk log can be extracted from the Event Viewer:

[1] Click Start.
[2] In the search box type eventvwr.msc and press Enter.
[3] On the left-hand side under Event Viewer (Local) expand Windows Logs and click Application.
[4] On the right-hand side under the Actions pane click Filter current log.
[5] In the Event Sources: dropdown box list select Wininit and press Enter, then click OK.

You should now only see the chkdsk log files displayed from the Wininit Event Sources and the information pertaining to each of them.

[6] Double-click Wininit => Copy [at the bottom] => Paste into Notepad => Save to the desktop as chkdsk.txt.

chkdsk [Check Disk] - Extract The WININIT Run Data Log . . .

Click here [direct download] => CHKDSK_Extract_The_WININIT_Run_Data_Log.bat.

This Extracts the current status [output data] for either chkdsk C: /F or chkdsk C: /R [which MUST be run FIRST in order to have the current run data available!] and creates a .txt [text] file on the desktop. It does NOT extract the current status [output data] for chkdsk [See the NOTE: at the bottom of the above section].

You will then need to upload the .txt file from the desktop [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

Disk Cleanup - Extended . . .

Click here [direct download] => Disk_Cleanup_Extended.bat.

This allows you to free up HDD space by deleting temporary and not needed files etc from the HDD. It is an extension [advanced version] of the standard disk cleanup tool which allows hidden options to become available, allowing you to clean up even more HDD space.

Check the appropriate boxes for the items that you want cleaned and press [OK].

DXDIAG [DirectX Diagnostics] . . .

Click here [direct download] => DX_Diag.bat.

DxDiag is a MS diagnostic tool that is extremely useful for troubleshooting and identifying any problems or issues.

It gives detailed [technical] information about the OS including make, model, OS version, GPU, CPU, BIOS, DirectX, hardware, drivers [outdated and missing drivers], audio, display, video and other multimedia applications and features etc.

The information produced falls into the categories . . .

System Information
DxDiag Notes
DirectX Debug Levels
Display Devices
Sound Devices
Sound Capture Devices
DirectInput Devices
USB Devices
Gameport Devices
PS/2 Devices
Disk & DVD/CD-ROM Drives
System Devices
DirectShow Filters

Event Viewer - Clear ALL Logs . . .

Click here [direct download] => Event_Viewer_Clear_ALL_Logs.bat.

Over time, the Event Viewer gets very full and cluttered and makes troubleshooting extremely hard. If your OS has been running smoothly for a while without any problems then you can clear ALL the logs. This makes using the Event Viewer [if needed] a lot easier and manageable!

ipconfig /all . . .

Click here [direct download] => IP_Config_All.bat.

The batch script creates a IP_Config_All.txt file on the desktop ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

msinfo32 [MS System Information] . . .

Click here [direct download] => MS_Info32.bat.

msinfo32 is a Windows system information utility tool [system profiler] which collects information about your computer hardware configuration, computer components, software and drivers etc. It produces a comprehensive overview of your OS and is very useful for diagnosing computer issues.

The batch script gives you 4 options . . .

Option [1] ABORT this process and EXIT.
Option [2] Open the msinfo32 consol Window.
Option [3] Create a MSI_TXT.txt file on the desktop.
Option [4] Create a MSI_NFO.nfo file on the desktop.

msinfo32 [MS System Information] - Problem Devices . . .

Click here [direct download] => MS_Info32_Find_Problem_Devices.bat.

msinfo32 contains a wealth of information [see above]. One of the categories is MSINFO32 => System Summary => Components => Problem Devices which contains the description of the problem device[s] and the error code with the reason why it is a problem.

The batch script extracts this information to a .txt [text] file on the desktop ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

.NET Framework Versions Installed . . .

Click here [direct download] => NET_Framework_Versions_Installed.bat.

The batch script lists ALL the .NET Framework versions installed as defined in . . .

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework and . . .
HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP.

NOTE: Starting from .NET Framework 4.5, MS stores the .NET Framework versions via a key in the registry . . .

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full\Release.

Network Problems [Diagnose & Repair] . . .

Click here [direct download] => Network_Problems_Diagnose_And_Repair.bat.

The batch script not only collates the information required to diagnose network problems, but can also run network processes to hopefully correct them. The processes are . . .

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset [requires REBOOT]
netsh.exe winhttp reset proxy [if there is one!]

Network Statistics And Diagnostics . . .

Click here [direct download] => Network_Statistics_And_Diagnostics.bat.

The batch script produces a detailed analysis of network statistics and diagnostics. It produces comprehensive information on current settings and parameters as well as running some network diagnostics which are useful for trouble-shooting. Currently [more may be added later], the processes run are . . .

hostname
ver [MS Windows version]
arp -a
ipconfig /all
getmac
nbtstat -s
net start
netsh interface ipv4 show subinterfaces
netsh interface show interface
netsh interface tcp show global

route print
tasklist
query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
query HKEY_CURRENT_USER

NOTE: The batch script process can take a little while to run, so be patient!

Programs And Software - Installed . . .

Click here [direct download] => Programs_And_Software_Installed.bat.

The batch script lists the installed programs and software.

Option [2] produces exactly what is shown in Programs and Features.

Option [3] produces a more comprehensive list because it not only produces exactly what is shown in Programs and Features, but also includes for example [among others] . . .

Hotfix KB numbers for MS .NET Framework.
MS .NET Framework.
MS Office.
MS SQL Server.
MS Visual C++.
Security updates for MS .NET Framework.
Security updates for MS Office.
Updates for MS .NET Framework.
Updates for MS Office.

etc . . .

Required Clean And Repair Install Data . . .

Click here [direct download] => Required_Clean_And_Repair_Install_Data.bat.

I have written this batch script for members [and those members helping them] who are in the process of performing a clean or repair install. This data is useful for the members who haven't filled out their system specifications for one reason or another. The data produced includes everything that is needed in order to give the correct advice!

The batch script creates a Clean_Repair.txt file on the desktop ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

sfc [System File Checker] . . .

Click here [direct download] => SFC_System_File_Checker.bat.

SFC is a Windows utility program for detecting and repairing any corruptions in the protected system files of the OS. If any files are missing or corrupted, they are replaced from the cached copy which is located in the compressed folder %WinDir%\System32\dllcache.

Once SFC has finished running, the scan results are shown in the cmd prompt window. SFC also creates a CBS.log in the temporary folder C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\. This log contains ALL the information generated from running SFC. The batch script copies this log to the desktop as CBS_Log.txt.

As we are only really interested in the ERRORS, the batch script extracts the ERRORS ONLY from the CBS.log and creates a CBS_ERRORS.txt file on the desktop.

The batch script can also create a compressed SFC_Up desktop folder and copy the CBS.log.txt & CBS_ERRORS.txt files into it.

NOTE: If any ERRORS are reported, then run SFC again two or three more times, re-booting in between. For some reason, this can make a difference. I think it has to do with the settings.ini file sometimes showing false positives! If you still get a message saying "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them", then either upload the files or the folder [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

Software Distribution Folder - Rename . . .

Click here [direct download] => Software_Distribution_Folder_Rename.bat.

If WU [Windows update] stops working then one option available is to rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SoftwareDistribution.old and then run WU again [this will create a new SoftwareDistribution [database] folder]. Doing this enables you to restore [rename] the folder back if needed. If everything is OK then you can delete the SoftwareDistribution.old folder.

IMPORTANT: Performing the above will mean that any WUís that are currently pending [currently downloaded but havenít been installed] prior to renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder will have to be downloaded again.

The batch script stops wuauserv and bits, renames the SoftwareDistribution folder to SoftwareDistribution.old, restarts wuauserv and bits, then restarts the computer.

NOTE: Renaming the SoftwareDistribution folder is a far better option than clearing it or deleting it because it contains essential components and update history data.

SURT [System Update Readiness Tool] . . .

Click here [direct download] => SURT.bat.

SURT is a self-installing utility that executes when you install it [this will take a while to complete so be patient!]. It is used because of an inconsistency found in the Windows servicing store that may prevent the successful installation of updates, service packs, and software. It checks for these inconsistencies [integrity] and tries to fix any issues found. It supports all versions of Windows 7 SP1. When SURT is run, it creates two log files, CheckSUR.log & CheckSUR.persist.log, both in the temporary folder C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\. The batch script will copy these two files along with the CBS.log & WindowsUpdate.log to the desktop as individual files. The batch script can also create a compressed SURT_Up desktop folder and copy ALL of the aforementioned files into it, ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

IMPORTANT: You MUST download ONE of the following files to the DESKTOP ONLY FIRST. The reason for this is that the batch script uses that desktop file to run SURT.

SURT 32-bit download => SURT for Windows 7 x86-based Systems (KB947821) [October 2014].

SURT 64-bit download => SURT for Windows 7 x64-based Systems (KB947821) [October 2014].

SUGGESTION: It is advisable to SAVE & CLOSE ALL PROGRAMS before running the batch script!

SUGGESTION: It is advisable to turn off the power options for sleep etc while SURT is running because it may take a while [so be patient!].

System Reports . . .

Click here [direct download] => System_Reports.bat.

This batch script provides a selection of informative reports that are not only extremely useful for the information they contain but for troubleshooting and identifying any problems or issues. The options available are . . .

0. EXIT this Program.

99. Run ALL . . . Runs ALL of the above into a desktop folder.

wmic [Windows Management Instrumentation Command] -
Comprehensive Report . . .

Click here [direct download] => wmic_Comprehensive_Report.bat.

This batch script incorporates a comprehensive list of system information and settings that are compiled using the wmic. I have obviously not included all of the elements available [and I have certainly havenít included every parameter available within those elements] but I have included those which I think are most useful and informative. The elements included are in alphabetical order and are as follows . . .

BASEBOARD
BIOS
BOOTCONFIG
CDROM
COMPUTERSYSTEM
CPU
CSPRODUCT
DESKTOPMONITOR
DISKDRIVE

WU [Windows Update] - Hotfixes . . .

Click here [direct download] => WU_Hotfixes.bat.

I have used Microsoft's wmic [Windows Management Instrumentation Command] qfe list utility/tool to generate and output the list of WU's [Windows Updates] and Hotfixes [patches] installed and the date they were installed. The batch script creates a WU_Hotfixes.txt file on the desktop ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

WU [Windows Update] - Log . . .

Click here [direct download] => WU_Log.bat.

By default, the WU client records all the transaction information into the log file located at %SystemRoot%\WindowsUpdate.log. The information generated is useful for troubleshooting and investigating problems/issues. The batch script creates a WU_Log.txt file on the desktop ready to upload to the forum [see Upload to SevenForums below] for us to look at!

Upload to SevenForums . . .
