This is bizarre. The rating thing will not work. It just stays at "Unrated". When I click on the link to rate my computer's performance the box that says "Rate and improve your computer's performance" at the top will appear, but the rest of the box will remain blank. Is there any way to fix this???
People do dumb things. And I'm not talking about paying too much for car insurance either.

Have you run/added any programs that might be interfering with the services that are required for this process to operate? (the actual executable for the program is located at C:\Windows\System32\winsat.exe.

On my 64 bit version of Windows it runs with these parameters:
"C:\Windows\system32\winsat.exe" formal -cancelevent c085d6c2-6d28-4aae-880e-bbaa9e1c9c82

Here's the syntax of winsat.exe from the Command Prompt:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6001]
Copyright © 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\xxxxxx>winsat /?
Windows System Assessment Tool

Command line usage:

WINSAT <assesment_name> [switches]

Valid assessment names
formal run the full set of assessments and save the results
features just run the features assessment
cpu run the cpu assessment
mem run the system memory assessment
dwm run the desktop window manager assessment
d3d run the d3d assessment
media run the media assessment
mfmedia run the Media Foundation based assessment
disk run the storage assessment

An assessment name is mandatory.

The 'formal' assessment will run all the assessments and save the data
in '%systemroot%\windows\performance\datastore' This is the only
assessment that will save data in this location.

The 'features' assessment simply enumerates the system's features.
This is best used with the '-xml <filename>' switch to save the data.
The '-eef' switch can be used to enumerate extra features such as
optical disks, memory modules, and other items.

Other command line paramters include include:
'-v' enable verbose output
'-xml <filename>' save the XML output to 'filename'

Running the "winsat dwm" command will re-assess the systems graphics
capabilities and restart the desktop window manager.

Please see the online Command Reference for more information
on the command line parameters used with the other assessments.


Maybe try running it from the command line with the -xml switch to save the output to a file?

As you have several HiJackThis log topics open, I'm closing this thread.
Once your logs are worked by the HJT Team and are certified clean, then you can either PM a moderator to reopen this topic, or you can simply create another topic. :huh:
