Show processes from all users, with no other users

Question: Show processes from all users, with no other users

I am cleaning a laptop out and i created a brand new user name. I deleted the other 2 users using the control passwords2.

So the machine starts and i select the user. Process usage is very high and it says 50, but actual user shows about 9. I click show processes from all users and i find the culprit as well as 50 processes. I deleted the users so there shouldnt be that option.

Why is there more processes if this is the only user, why does it even have the option?

Preferred Solution: Show processes from all users, with no other users

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Show processes from all users, with no other users

All users includes not only other users, if any but the System as well.

I have been having problems with Media Center, not downloading the guide.  I have been trying to follow all of Microsoft's recommendations for a fix.
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.  The advice told me to go into Services and find two files on the list and make sure they were both started:

Windows Media Center Receiver Service (was started), and
Windows Media Center Scheduler Service (wasn't started, I started it).
Then it told be to go to Show Processes from all Users.  And find six files on the list.  The instructions assumed the files would be there.  Only one of the files is. 
How do I get the missing five files on the list?:
ehmsas.exe (missing)
ehrecvr.exe (on the list)
ehsched.exe (missing)
ehschell.exe (missing)
ehtray.exe (missing)
mcGlidHost.exe (missing)

Microsoft's directions assumed that these files would all be there.  It did not say what to do if any were missing.

Please HELP!!!

Is there a way to make it so Task Manger will always Show Processes From All Users WITHOUT turning off UAC? It seems like every time I open task manager and want to check the running processes I have to click the button in the bottom left. With UAC off, it seems to always show all users, but with UAC off I can't use my gadgets..

Answer:Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

What build are you running? Becase in mine, with UAC fully enabled, I can see a button that reads "Show processes from all users" in the "Processes" tab.

Windows 7 Ultimate N, 64bit, updated with latest Microsoft Patches. (updated from Vista over 1 year ago). Only recently stopped working.

Task Manager no longer shows all of the tabs, only the second tab that lists each single process and gives me the ability to End Process. No longer do I see the tab that shows the currently open applications or the tab that would show the system resources.

Also, no close on the dialog, I have to close using the right click Close Window on the task bar.

Not sure how to fix.Laura Madeira

Answer: Task Manager not showing all tabs, only the Show Processes from All Users/Win7 Ult N 64bit

Ordinarily, if all the Tabs ‘disappear, they can be regained by double-clicking on the outside border of the window.

Is there a way to force Task Manager to open with the "Show processes from all users" option enabled?

I created a shortcut and added "/1" (without quotes) in the property target line but it did not work. (I know, one click will accomplish this but I just like to tweak!)

Disregard.

Found Brink's post of 05-18-2009 on same subject. Followed his directions and worked like a charm.

Thanks Brink !

Answer:Force Task Manager "Show processes from all users" always enabled.

Hello Manuel,

In addition, you could use the shortcut below to have this. The "Show processes from all users" option just runs Task Manager as elevated (Run as administrator).

So basically I opened up my task manager a moment ago, and found it flooded with running processes. I'd had experience before with Poweliks and used a program to remove that on two separate occasions. This time around the program didn't detect it. So I started running Malware Bytes and Norton, both of which found malware and removed them. But the same issue of the heavily loaded task manager continued.


Then I found that I had "Show processes from all users" checked on, and checking it off had my task manager processes significantly reduced in number.


Then I remember an incident earlier today in which a program crashed, forcing me to navigate the task manager with my keyboard only to shut off the program. I had been rather sloppy in my attempt to close it and may have accidentally clicked "Show processes from all users" on.


So this feels like a dumb question so I ask, is it normal and was this the case? Is 66 processes for all users normal?

Answer:Malware or accident involving "Show processes from all users"?

66 is not bad. Using my 3 brain cells memory that is normal for many.

In XP if you check the box "show processes from all users" it's then static unless you uncheck it. It doesn't reset itself if you close Task Mgr and /or reboot.

Under Build 7100 it does reset itself. If I close TM it resets. Same if I reboot while TM is open or closed.

Is there a way to make it permanent? Thanks.

Answer:Task Mgr-"Show processes from all users" resets itself

Hello Michael, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can create right click on the C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe file and click on Send To and Desktop (create shortcut).

Next right click on the shortcut, and click on Properties, Shortcut tab, Advanced button, check Run as administrator, click on OK, and OK.

When you check "show processes from all users" with this shortcut, it will not reset on you.

We are working on a new W7 image in our company. The first tests are done but there are still some questions left, one of them is from our support guys.

Is it possible to make the button "Show processes from all users" available to all users? If you click on the button now (normal users) there is nothing happing.
If you log in with a admin account this is working.

A work around is to run this from C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe as admin and you can see all processes.

But the questions is, is it possible to make this button available for all users with GPO settings?

I have a new Vaio laptop, there should be no malware or anything as I have not installed any programs and I have virus software and firewall on.
I have only one user account which is also the administrator. I have UAC enabled.

Now, I start the task manager, and click "show processes from all users", and there are about 80 of them. But what is alarming is that most of the processes run at least twice or three times. I'm not talking about svchost.exe, I know that there are supposed to be many of those. But all other processes, there seems to be one running under three different user names, like this:

process1.exe..........LOCAL
process1.exe..........Felixmagician
process1.exe..........SYSTEM
process2.exe..........LOCAL
process2.exe..........Felixmagician
process2.exe..........SYSTEM

and so on.

I keep getting this horribly annoying weird thing where I'll be in the middle of a game or something and my system just all of a sudden at seemingly random times darned well nearly locks up. To the point that the sound buffer is repeating over and over even. The system moves forward so slowly it takes about 5 minutes to respond to anything I tell it to do. Problem is, by the time it finally does respond, it's over. So, this means I can't use task manager or anything like that. What I want to do is remotely watch a list of ALL programs from ALL users (no hidden crap,) sorted by the CPU usage on another computer on my network. I almost could do that with "top" from the cygwin tools, but, the wonderfully intelligent people who put in all that work to port it to windows seemed to have neglected putting in any kind of option to view windows processes that I could track down. If they did put it in there, it's very well hidden because there's no mention of it anywhere and trying different keys didn't seem to help either. Of course, ps won't show CPU usage, but, it can show windows processes. Obviously I could try to manually track them one at a time or something by using ps first, then top or something, but, I'd rather be watching grass grow than trying to track that many changing processes one at a time manually. And even if I used a script or something it'd just take forever. I also tried using the video output of my video car... Read more

Answer:What software can remotely monitor the list of all processes from all users?

http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/PsList.html

"Introduction

Most UNIX operating systems ship with a command-line tool called "ps" (or something equivalent) that administrators use to view detailed information about process CPU and memory usage. Windows NT/2K comes with no such tool natively, but you can obtain similar tools with the Windows NT Workstation or Server Resource Kits. The tools in the Resource Kits, pstat and pmon, show you different types of information, and will only display data regarding the processes on the system on which you run the tools.

PsList is utility that shows you a combination of the information obtainable individually with pmon and pstat. You can view process CPU and memory information, or thread statistics. What makes PsList more powerful than the Resource Kit tools is that you can view process and thread statistics on a remote computer."

Hello,
WIN 8.1

I have 3 users set up on my PC. I see all 3 on the logon screen. I can sign on to each one. Up until last night, I could see all 3 when exploring the c-drive. Now, all I see is 1 of them. This is what I see under Users:

Default
Default.migrated
Public
User

ADMIN is the only user I see. I can see it while logged on to each account. I have an online backup service which used to see all of the users and backed them up. Last night, it couldn't find them. What could have happened? Should I try restoring to the last restore point? Thanks.

I've seen a few posts with this problem but none of the suggestions have helped (short of reformatting the hard drive and going through a reinstall to include all drivers and software.

I am trying to assist a friend. Due to other issues she was having with her stand-alone (i.e., not networked) Gateway 500SE PC, about two weeks ago I completely reformatted her hard drive, reinstalled Windows XP, reinstalled all her software and drivers, and ran Microsoft update to ensure everything was current. She indicated that she hadn't changed anything since then but when she turned her computer on this morning, no users were displayed in the Windows Log-on screen.

I tried to use the Control-Alt-Delete sequence (twice) to bring up a user log-in screen but entering either of the two user names (one of which has no password) resulted in a dialog indicating an incorrect domain.

Then I tried boot in the Safe mode but the process led to a request for the Administrator Password. No Administrator password is set but hitting "ENTER" gets rejected as an invalid password.

I tried repairing XP using her install disk but after running that process, I had the exact same issue - no users listed on the log-on page.

Answer:How do I show notification icon for all users in Win 7

If you look at the notification area, you should see an tiny uparrow, click there you should see the option to customize. When the dialog box opens you will see a list of available notification icons, for your Antivirus select the option to show icons and notifications.
If the icon just isn't showing up according to what antivirus you are using you should be able to go to the antivirus settings and enable the taskbar\notification\notify icon. Most applications such as Microsoft Security Essentials does this by default.

really need some help on this one cause i cant seem to get how something that sounds so simple is so hard to do.

they also have a domain which he has another account on there.

so i have local account joe1 and domain account joe2. now i need to get joe 1 to combind and merge outlook and my docs with joe2. and then get joe2 to stay on the server so that it remains a account that can be accesses on any computer on the domain network. with this in mind the user profile needs to be saved on the server and the profile can be copied to the computer that his sitting at when he loggs on.

Answer:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
 
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

Hi everyone,

I am the web masters of a local snowmobile club and our new website is having a few problems with printing. Please take a look at the site, http://www.strathroysnoblizzards.com/Strathroy_Sno-Blizzards/index.html

As you can see it has a black background which when printed on my Mac OS X has no problems with printing (it leaves out black background and keeps the text and images) and prints everything.

The problem is that one of our members are ticked that they can not print the site because of the black showing up above the text and images and I really don't want to change the background because it look good the way it is, so is there any way to change to printer settings or some ideas for him to help him out with this problem.

SO. should I panic that I've had another thing sneak past the security screens (mvp hosts file, spyware blaster, avast's shields, mbam scans)? nothing else seems out of sorts, but one man's paranoia is another man's preparation, and all.

Answer:C:\Users\All Users refers to a location that is unavailable *error message*

This is normal.All users folder points to c:\programdata folder.These are called symbolic links.

Got a problem here with a classroom full of Windows XP Pro PCs, where if I put new shortcuts into All Users\Desktop, when a user logs on they can only see the shortcut as an unknown file type which does not run. Any existing shortcuts in All Users\Desktop work ok, just not any new ones!

I don't remember when, but I availed myself of the free Windows 10 upgrade sometime back. I was using 8.1 and I had, at some point, moved C:\Users and all its associated folders to E:. Everything has worked fine and Win10 didn't have a problem. I did notice that there was still a C:\Users, but the only folder it contains is Administrator.

This was probably not a good move to make. Moving data folders, like Pictures, Documents, etc., is fine, but moving the actual User Profiles was not such a good idea. My E: drive is no longer large enough to hold all my photos and other data. I bought a replacement drive large enough, but having my Users Profiles on E: is now a problem and I want to move them back to C:, only without the data folders.

I can delete all the existing data files from those default folders (I have backed them all up), so now I need to find a way to restore the Users folder and contents to C:. I've tried researching the problem, but found nothing that specifically applies to my situation. The TenForums article, "Relocating Users folder on an existing Windows installation" Seems to be as close as I can get. Unfortunately, this part has made me take pause and ask you all for help:

Be sure that the drive into which you are relocating the Users folder is empty or at least does not contain any Windows system folders, especially Users folder or parts of it from any current or previous Windows install... Read more

Answer:Restore Users Profiles back to C:\Users without data folders

Jim McClain said:

Do you know what I should do? Maybe Kari's still around and can reply? Any guidance would be appreciated.



If you used the Sysprep method to relocate the Users folder to E: drive, you can use the same method to relocate it back to C: drive. The warning you quoted is when doing this in a clean install, it does not apply when moving Users folder back to C: drive which will always be accepted and OK for Windows.

Follow these simple steps (looks more complicated than it in reality is!):

Create a new, temporary local user account, name it as you wish like "Dummy" or such (tutorial)Change Dummy's account type to administrator (tutorial)Sign out from all other user accounts, sign in to DummyDisable all other user accounts except Dummy, the one you are currently signed in (tutorial). No worries, accounts and their data will remain intact, deactivating (disabling) them temporarily is done because sometimes Sysprep causes existing user accounts to lose Start and Search / Cortana functionality. When we are ready we will again activate (enable) all old user accountsWhen done, open an elevated Notepad (right click and select Run as Administrator) copy the following code and paste it to a new text document]:

How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

All of my computers are wired... but, I would like to give my retired neighbor (he's 64 years old) wireless access. But, I don't want him or anyone else access to my shared files b/w desktop/laptop. So, should I put it on a different subnet? Do I need a 2nd router? Right now, I have the BEFSR41 with a WAP11 AP on 192.168.1.245 with the router on 192.168.1.1 (both are 255.255.255.0 subnet).

Thanks!
 

Answer:How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

I would setup a DMZ, you can do this by using two physical routers or something like smooth wall with multiple nics. If I were you I would setup smooth wall on a crap old box and install 3 network cards into the old computer. Hooking your cable modem to one of the network cards in the smoothwall box will be like pluggin in your cable modem to the wan port on the back of your router. I would plug your wireless router into to the next nic on your smooth wall box. If your neighbor is the only one using the wireless do the following. Enable WEP, don't broadcast your ssid, filter by mac address, and limit the total number of connections to 1. That should keep your wireless rather secure. With the final network card in the smooth wall box attach either a standard switch or even another router. Smooth wall has built in DHCP support and it will allow you to set a range of ips.Hard wire all your home computer to the switch and your in business.

I'm not one to recommend messing with the registry, and I can't tell you where exactly to change the setting you want to change, but I *can* tell you that HKCU stands for HKCurrentUser. That means the setting will only change for the person modifying the registry, as he/she is the "current user."

My home pc (Win7 Ultimate) is part of my business domain, but I also have local user accounts for my wife and kids.

At the login screen there is a icon for the last user that logged in and another labeled "Other Users" for the rest of the users, so that if a different user needs to login they have to select "Other Users" then enter the DOMAIN/USERID and password to logon.

Is there a way to have it show all three users with their icons at the login screen so they can just click their icon and enter their password (all have passwords) to logon. Getting them to enter the DOMAIN/USERID correctly everytime is a challenge since the slash has to go the correct way and the domain name is somewhat long.

HI. I want to setup my build to change reg key(s) so that each new user that logs on sees the file extensions in Windows Explorer

I've got my SSD set to optimise daily and I'm puzzled by the results. Previously I had it set to 'weekly' and nothing seemed to happen there either.

Is this a glitch in the W10 GUI ? or is the SSD firmware overriding Windows and doing its own thing.

Is there any registry key that shows when it was last run, and/or when it will run next ? Vista used to have such a thing for defragging boot files as I recall. You could look and see when it was last done.

Just puzzled that's all.

Answer:Calling SSD users. What does your 'Optimise' window show ?

You should not be optimizing a ssd, it does it on it`s own.

It`s supposed to be turned off on a ssd, totally normal.

You should turn off the schedule and optimize your hard drives manually, too much of that can kill a hard drive or even create bad sectors.

This is a brand new install I just did, that`s why all my drives say never run, but they were defragmented from W7 so there`s no need to optimize them now, I`ll do it on 10 when I get to it

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

Hi, everyone...

I'm trying to find a registry hack or something to address the change Microsoft made going from Windows 8.x to Windows 10.

Here is a quick run-down of what Microsoft changed:

My wife and I have 4 children. One of our PCs is used by all of the children. There are 5 Microsoft accounts set up on that PC, one for each of the children plus one that I have set up as the Admin account.

Windows 8.x indicated on the Sign-in Screen which users were already logged/signed in. So, if the Sign-in Screen was displayed, you could see right there if anyone was signed into their account. For example, if 2 of the 5 accounts on our PC were already signed in, then right there on the Sign-in Screen below the picture and name of those 2 users that are already signed in, it says "Signed in" for each of those 2 users. You know right there at the Sign-in Screen if anyone is already signed in that might need to sign out before a restart or shutdown.

Windows 10 removed this information/indication. If you are already signed into an account, then you can look and see which users (if any) are signed in and there is no guesswork needed. However, if you are at the Sign-in Screen and want to restart or shutdown the PC while one or more users are signed in, then you are told users are signed in but have no idea which users are signed in. The only way to know which users are signed in is to sign into one of the accounts and find out.

Hi,

I am trying to change the registry to show hidden files/extensions.
This is for an unattended install, so I don't want to do it manually for each user. I know I can change the registry for the current user, but I can't seem to find out how to do this system wide. I need to show hidden files and file extensions for all users, such as when a new user account is created, extensions and hidden files are shown.

Is there a way to do this system wide?

I have tried adding the dword following entries:
Hidden (Value=1) & HideFileExt(HideFileExt=0) to the below locations in the registry

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

I read that if you change HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\NoHidden & HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\HideFileExt to the above values it should change the default key for HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced (Hidden & HideFileExt)

None of the HKLM entries I have tried as above appear to work.
Is there actually a way to change this system wide?

Answer:Show File Extensions and Hidden Files for all Users

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"HideFileExt"=dword:00000000
"Hidden"=dword:00000001
show and hide files is a profile specific key and therefore can be modified by user accounts. if you would like to change the default, navigate to key:
HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\current version\explorer\advanced\folder\hidden and \hidefileext
there are keys in there that set default behaviors.

Answer:Will pfd users be able to update to denim parlally with non pfd users????

Why not. For cyan it was also the case. Unfortunately a problem occurred and that was the reason that pfd were placed on "hold". Only I hope there are not coming major feedbacks on the demin in China in relation with pfd.

As Administrator, I?ve created my own folders for my documents. These are located in the D: partition of my hard drive; and they are shown in the Library section of the contents of the computer, on the left.
Now, when opening the computer from the Guest Account, my own folders do not appear in the Library, all right. But just below the Library there appears the rest of the computer content, including the D: partition, and any Guest can access all the folders and files there, including my documents.
How can I hide the folders of each User from any other Guests, not only in the Library but also in their actual location in the hard drives?
Thanks for any help.

Answer:Hiding Users' files from Guest Users

OK this appears to be a simple permissions issue.

go to your root folder on the D: drive and right click the folder and select properties.

on the security tab you should see a list of those who have access to the folder - Make sure that your user has full rights and remove all rights to the "everyone" user group. This when OK'd should xascade down to all files and folders contained in the folder

If you wish you can adjust the rights available to any other particular user on the system - Make sure that you do not remove or change any rights given to system or administrative users unless you fully understand the result

After forgetting the local administrator password, I followed that guide for offline editing the SAM registry file. This clearly caused a problem, because no I see no users in LUAG as per the attached. All the accounts work fine, except the built-in administrator account which I can't do anything with (if I try to enable it using the 'net user' command, net crashes).

I suspect I may just have to live with this, but does anyone have any suggestions about how to 'clean' the administrator account in the registry so that LUAG works again?

Thanks

There are two new users there. They were created dated today, when I first switched the computer on.

What are they?

I have a buncha users that I have as power users, since the software we use will not work as a normal user... problem is, they can install stuff on the local machine that way. How can I have ONE program run as a poweruser/admin/whatever, but have the rest of the system as a restricted user??

Thanks for your time,
QJ
 

Answer:Want to block users from being power users...

What's up Qwerty.

In XP, you can choose to run a program as a different user. Right-click the shortcut, select Advanced, then check "Run with different credentials". When you execute the program, it will prompt which user to run it as. You may have to read up on how to make it not prompt for a password each time.

MSDN has an in-depth article on the subject.

I posted this message in the W95/98/ME fourm, but this seems like the more appropriate place for the question:

I work for a company that has a small network consisting of one NT 4.0 Server box and around 40-60 client computers, mostly running W95 with a few running W98/2000/ME. Anyway, two managers here have W98 machines, and periodically after they have logged into the network and used different mapped network drives all of a sudden they can't access any mapped drives and they appear to be disconnected from the network (well, they are, as they can't do anything network related). The network is your basic ethernet using simple UTP cabling and hubs. The cabling appears to be plugged in properly, especially since they can log in and be connected to the network for a period of time. Rebooting solves the problem, but that isn't acceptable to my managers, so I have to figure out a way to get it so they don't get kicked off (besides just giving them W95). I have done a lot of research by myself on this, but I can't find any answers....if anyone has any ideas I'll be grateful, and will consider naming one of my future children after you. If you need more info, I'll be checking this board tomorrow throughout work, and will be more than happy to provide you with any other info you need. Thanks

Is there a way to create user files or folders that are not invisible to other users. Invisible to mean the other user see absolutely nothing to do with another user. Users in this case to mean Windows 10 "Standard User" Please note that if solution cannot be accomplished with Home edition, please note that in your reply --Thanks

Here is an example. There are 2 user accounts on my computer, not including mine. The computer has a 2nd drive that I use for all my personal data. When I created a Standard User, that user apparently can see all my folders and files. They cannot open them but they can see the titles. I want to create an environment where each user only can see and manipulate those files and folders they create/own. Other than that the data drive would empty.

If this is something you know about or dealt with I would very much like to hear your thoughts and a concrete and simple way to accomplish this.

Again, thanks
Jerry
