    Reliability Monitor Questions

    Hi, and thanks for taking the time to look over my question.

    My question is about the Reliability Monitor.

    First, I am not showing any entries at all. Not even any blue update notifications, which have been there in the past. Is there any reason these entries are no longer being displayed?

    Second, I understand that the Reliability Monitor will assign a stability index number, as an indication of how stable/unstable one's computer is. I have looked through the program, however I am unable to locate that numerical entry. If somebody could point me to where this can be located, that would be very much appreciated.

    Reliability Monitor is an advanced tool that measures hardware and software problems and other changes to your computer. It provides a stability index that ranges from 1 (the least stable) to 10 (the most stable). You can use the index to help evaluate the reliability of your computer. Any change you make to your computer or problem that occurs on your computer affects the stability index.

    Note: I do have this view set to Weeks, not Days- however there are no entries within the days either.

    I don't know why you are not showing updates, I am. But I can answer the answer the question about the stability index. It is the vertical numbers on the left hand side. You might want to change the vew by to days rather than weeks and see if that shows more detail.

    Hey JohnC-

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    I do have that horizontal thin blue line along the very top, which is partially visible in my above screenshot. It shows that I am very stable, however I'm now wondering how accurate this is, since there's nothing else showing at all. In the past I saw the updates and I did see one critical entry when a program refused to shut down properly, so I know it worked before.

    I suppose I can see if I can force an entry, via a manual update somewhere.

    I'm going to wait just a bit before marking this as solved, in case there's additional info about the lack of entries.

    Again thanks,

    Wow, that's one clean graph!! Something is not right with it ,obviously. Even with a weekly chart it should still show events . No monitor would ever be that clean
    I see its a custom rig,did you upgrade from 7 or 8? You may have some corrupt files.
    Run an sfc/scannow (admin) . If anything is bad its an easy fix,with DISM

    I did some checking, and it appears that I needed to reset the monitor. There were a few different options on how to do this, but I opted for a batch file download from HERE. (*This only indicates that it's for Win- 7/8, however I used it anyhow and it seems to be working)

    Anyhow, I re-checked my Reliability History and it now shows one critical entry, which is about Cortana not working- which is how I configured it anyhow.

    I'm going to give it a day or so, then if other entries show up, I'll considered this as solved.

    Again thanks,

    I just checked again and now shows a few more entries, so I think this issue is solved. It appears that resetting the Reliability Monitor corrected things.

    I just re-marked this as "not solved."

    For whatever reason, when I checked the Reliability History this morning, it's shows absolutely no entries again. I'm going to look into things more and re-post if / when I find anything to help with this issue.

    Did you run an SFC scan? I would imagine you did

    Hey AnEdge,

    Yes I did, and I do apologize for not making mention of that before, as I did note your prior reply. I had already ran it before my initial post.

    The scan did show a file or two that could not be repaired. I tired a program called SFC.exe, which I understand is suppose to help with this, however it too said the file could not be repaired. However, to the best of my recollection, I have always had a file that could not be repaired from the very first scan, which I think was well before the Reliability issue began, but I could be wrong about that.

    I do have one theory that I am going to check.

    I have my system set to run the Windows back up imaging utility every early morning. As far as I know, this was the only thing that was done since I thought the reliability utility issue was fixed. I did use the same batch file to get it working again, as well as disabled the daily back-ups, so I'll know if there's any relationship come tomorrow morning. That won't necessarily mean I found a fix, but I'm hoping to at least see if that does have any affect and go from there. I do use Macrium, AOMEI and EaseUS, so I will have other alternatives if need be.

    Do this and your system will thank you for it!!
    This method requires you to have an isodownloaded from Tech Bench.

    Once you have it downloaded from Tech Bench, right click at it > click Mount> leave it there.
    Now go back to your elevated command prompt, at the flashing prompt, copy/pastethis command line......................

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1/limitaccess

    Note : H is the drive where the iso is mounted. Change it if yourdriver letter is different.

    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image

    When it is completed, you should get the report that the operation issuccessful.
    Now run the sfc /scannow again. It should be ok this time.

    You may have to run the sfc scan a few times for it to fix the files

    I came over to Win-10 directly from XP, so some of this is pretty new to me.

    I understand that when I "mount" an ISO, it basically creates a virtual drive, where I can access the files from the ISO image. (If I understand things correctly, I suppose it's like back in the day when we use to load the installation CD into a drive and point to that as the location source)

    Anyhow, I went ahead an downloaded the ISO from the link you provided- thanks. I did have a previous ISO, however I am not sure if these are being replaced by newer versions, so I re-downloaded it just in case.

    However, I am having problems locating it using both the Administrative Command Prompt, as well as the Power Shell. I am getting a message about how the "path could not be found."

    I am assuming that the "DVD Drive (G)" is the mounted ISO- see image, but again this is new to me.

    If you have a moment, are you able to see what I'm missing?

    This was the path that I used:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:G:\sources\install.wim:1/limitaccess
    (I should add that I also changed the drive letter to D, and even tried C and the results were the same)
