    Performance Report error


    Trying to perform an Admin Command Prompt ie- perfmon /report, I get an unobtainable response, see attachments.

    Having used option 1 to give me full permissions. again without success.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Hello Dencal,

    See if you may be able to generate a performance report using the method in the tutorial below instead.

    Sometimes you have to try a couple of times, it can be the system is performing background maintenance and permon will be temporarily blocked from generating a report, it even happens in Windows 7 when certain DLLs are in use from another program(such as UXthemers)

    Many thanks Brink for the info, but the real reason for my concern is Why was the performance report blocked in admin command prompt?
    For many years I have built my own desktops and each computer was named in my case "Computer with my name"
    Having now bought an MSI Gaming laptop it would appear that they have full permissions on my computer. ie- Computer MSI.
    This I find somewhat disturbing, is there anyway I can obtain full permissions and at the same time stopping MSI from doing the same.

    You could try Tweaking.com Windows Repair and reset permissions:

    I don't think it's a permissions issue, but more of it just not being able to using that method.

    Was it able to run using the method in the tutorial instead?

    Yes indeed Brink which is why I thanked you in my last post with a thumbs up..

    But as already stated in the same post:- This I find somewhat disturbing, is there anyway I can obtain full permissions and at the same time stopping MSI from doing the same.?

    Ok, good.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the MSI has full permissions with "Computer MSI". Do you mean for the computer name or just a user account they had setup by default? Could you give some more details on that?

    An MSI user account they had setup by default.

    Yeah, that would just be a default administrator account they setup for you to use to set up your own user accounts and such from.

    Just to be clear, are you able to run your command from the first post here successfully in that account? It shouldn't.
