Resource Monitor question...



  • 1. Windows defender - startup blocking some
    UAC prevents programs that require admin permissions from auto-starting in a standard account. If you click Show For All Users in Defender and escalate your privileges, the those disabled buttons will be enabled. Also, which you're in Defender you can click its Help button and search the help for "block startup programs" for more info.

    Just wondering what people's thoughts are on Readyboost. Is it worthwhile, and if so, under what circumstances would I benefit from it? I've got 1 GB ram. Thanks, Walter
  • 4. Shadow copy remains after deleting???
    Hi, I have been having a weird problem. I installed Vista Bussiness edition a few weeks back, and had to reinstall it due to software issues. I have two partitions on one harddrive, C and D. I usually backup all my documents etc. on the D drive. I also keep a complete windows backup on the D Drive. When I reinstalled Vista, I noticed that the system tells me that I have used 14GB of my D Drive... but my actual usage is 7GB. I don't know if this is because the previous install kept shadow copies? I did go to D and clean up, even used the "remove shadow copy", but still it's 14GB used, where reality only 7GB is in use... can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks! Ke
  • 5. Move Data from C in vista
    I really should not need to ask thisut I loaded Vista into my brand new C2D computer last week and I cannot see how I can move ALL data for ALL users from the C primary boot partition to either the second partition on that drive or to another drive. It should be a simple matter, but I have struggled from DOS-3.11-98-XP-XPsp2-Vista over the years without more than average problems, I am now at my witts end. When I try drag-and-drop, all that moves is a shortcut back to C. When I try right click there is no cut or move option. All other ideas produce the same result. I would love to get this sexy new computer in order prior to my 75th birthday in a couple of weeks so any suggestions would be appreciatedhanks in advance

Within Resource Monitor (from Task Manager) in the Memory area there
is an item called Hard Faults. What exactly does that mean??

thanks, Rich

Hi Rich

"The number of hard faults per minute currently resulting from th
application instance

A hard fault (also known as a page fault) occurs when the page of th
referenced address is no longer in physical memory and has been swappe
out or is available from a backing file on disk. It is not an error
However, a high number of hard faults may explain the slow response tim
of an application if it must continually read data back from disk rathe
than from physical memory.

In the Resoure Monitor, click on Help and type "hard Fault" (no quotes
in the Search tab.  You will get more information on this and all th
other items to.

Hope this helps

I have 2 gigs of memory and the resource monitor shows about 45%
used... I assume that includes all the background services also.

Yes, the background services will definitely use their share of memory.
The biggest use of memory is Superfetch.  It preloads data it thinks you
will need next to help make things run faster.  You can read more about
Superfetch in this tutorial.  See the related links to change what you
want Superfetch to preload.


My memory hovers around the 45% used mark too.

1.Extender Resource Monitor reports "System Resources Low"

The Extender Resource Monitor program that started running on my Media Center 
PC after I installed my first Media Extender constantly reports the "System 
Resources Low" message.  When I show system resources from the monitor, I 
have 'green' indicators on everything EXCEPT Memory available, which shows 
'red'.  However, the reported memory available (shown in the same window) is 
well over 2GB! (2592416 as I type).  This seems like it should be plenty.

I can have my extenders turned off, and no apps running on my PC, and I get 
the same message.

I have a similar problem when my Extenders initially connect.  They report a 
message that the PC is under heavy usage.  I click OK, connect anyway, and 
everything works great.

FYI - I have a new Dell XPS Gen 4, loaded, and 2 Linksys extenders.  I am 
connecting via wireless-g at short (20-30ft) range.  I have scanned for 
viruses and spyware and don't have any.  The problem is there if I reboot and 
if I disable virus and spyware protection.

Has anyone else seen this?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

2.resource.h question, program not using new resource ids

I created a bunch of controls on a dialog box and then wanted to
access them by incrementing a counter, for example IDC_CONTROL0+1, +2

I noticed this wasn't working as anticipated because the Resoiurce
ID's that were created in resource.h were not contiguous.

I manually edited the resource IDs in resource.h and then saved the

Unfortunately when I run the program it still seems to be picking up
the original resource ID?!  For example I changed the resource ID of
IDC_CONTROL in resource.h from:

#define IDC_CONTROL0	 1082
#define IDC_CONTROL1	 1086
#define IDC_CONTROL2 	 1090


#define IDC_CONTROL0	 1082
#define IDC_CONTROL1	 1083
#define IDC_CONTROL2 	 1084

When I run the program and click on the button IDC_CONTROL2, the wmId
returned is 1090, not the value of 1084 which is in the resource.h

When I view the Resource Symbols in the view menu, all resources show
the new ID's.  I have done a 'Clean' on the Build menu before

Is there somewhere else where the resources ids are saved?
