When I run winsat formal -reset -v from an elevated powershell or cmd window, it completes in less than a second and produces no xml files. I have tried without success:
1. Clean boot
2. Safe boot
3. Updated video driver
4. Uninstalled all codecs with autoruns
I think the problem might be related to failure to run the NT Kernel Logger but I don't know what process could be tying it up.
I have attached the winsat log.
