I have a Samsung NP365E5C-S05US laptop, 64bit os.

I googled around a week ago how to clear out the Reliability Monitor and found a file and downloaded it named "Reset-Reliability-Monitor.bat"

 

It runs the following commands...

":: Created by: Kapil Arya

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Reliability Analysis\WMI" /v WMIEnable /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
del /f /S /Q /A "%ProgramData%\Microsoft\RAC\PublishedData\*"
del /f /S /Q /A "%ProgramData%\Microsoft\RAC\StateData\*"
@echo off
FOR /F "tokens=1,2*" %%V IN ('bcdedit') DO SET adminTest=%%V
IF (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto noAdmin
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO (call :do_clear "%%G")
echo.
echo goto theEnd
:do_clear
echo clearing %1
wevtutil.exe cl %1
goto :eof
:noAdmin
exit"

 

 

 

It used to work but no longer does. When I run it gives me a few errors at the beginning saying something about "the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

I didn't get this error a few days ago and not sure why I am now or what is using these files..

I've had this laptop around a month and this is the only issue I've had with it, no issues with viruses or anything and I ran a scan just yesterday and things were fine.

I need help fixing this. Take a look at the screenshot that shows the issue, thank you.

Try to delete the file from the Windows explorer and it should tell you what program is using it. Have you tried this batch from safe mode?

I tried running it just now, figured I'd give it another try before trying it in safe mode and everything.. weird thing is it worked.

I mean it used to work just fine, then it stopped and I posted this thread, then I gave up on trying it, and now I tried and it works again....

Does anyone know why it stopped working?

Please compare the screenshot I posted earlier with the one below.. thank you.

There was something keeping it open, but without knowing that process its hard to tell.
