Windows tends to slow down with time. That is why so many people reset to original status.


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Hi, we're trying to use PsExex utility to launch 2 .exe files with some parameters on some server from a client application. The server is running Windows server 2003, the client Windows 7 Professional...


psexec in fact does run as the user running the command window that initiated the command. I use this command almost daily to run either command shells, batch or vbscripts, etc on remote computers. I've learned some about its behavior from watching the results.

Basically, psexec copies itself to the ADMIN$ share on the remote computer. It then installs a service on the remote computer, and runs that service, which is the copied file. This then executes the command that you specified in the psexec command line.

So, with that in mind, the user running psexec from the command line needs to have admin rights to the remote computer. You can bypass this requirement by using the "-u" parameter, and specifying a domainname\username. Domainname can be the remote computer's name if you have a local user. By putting in just the -u parameter, you'll then be prompted to type in the hidden password.

Once running on the remote computer, psexec will function in one of three ways:
1 - If no special parameter used, will run in the same user account as the person initiating the psexec command.
2 - If the "-u" parameter is used, it will run as that user.
3 - If the "-s" parameter is used, it will run as a local system account
In either of these 3 cases, you first have to have admin rights to use the ADMIN$ share and install a service.

When domain membership is broken on a computer, I'll frequently use a command line like this:
psexec -u COMPUTERNAME\Administrator \\COMPUTERNAME cmd.exe

This will allow me to have local admin rights by connecting to the remote computer as the local administrator account. It will also run the cmd.exe command as the local admin account.

Hi there !

For some reasons computer can crashed because some corrupted, missing files, virus program or faulty driver installed. Faulty installed drivers or multiple drivers installed with the same drivers can crashed your computer. Running on Safe mode will remove mulltiple same drivers in your computer and it will run on fresh install driver when loading to normal mode.

I suggest to run your computer on safe mode.

To run on safe mode, just restart your computer and press F8 to run on safe mode. After going to windows setting, restart your computer again. Check if this solve your problem.

I hope it helps you and thank you for using FixYa!

Computer running on 100% capacity


100% sounds like something bad is running like adware, spyware or a virus possibly.

I would suggest going to Start>Run and type in msconfig. Then go to the startups, and you can uncheck the things you don't need. Things like adobe reader, adobe updates, and such can be turned off.

Second, download and run the following programs, ccleaner, Malware Bytes anti malware, and Super Anti Spyware.

Run the ccleaner and delete all your temp junk, then run scans on both the other programs. You might need to turn off your anti virus program to do this.

CPU fan not running?


If the fan isn't running, the computer probably shut itself down because it overheated. Check to make sure the cable going from the fan to the motherboard is securely plugged in. If it is and the fan still doesn't run, you have a faulty fan and need to replace it before you start up your computer again. It's not good to run a computer that hot.
Please rate, thanks!
