Hello All,

I logged into my computer today morning and my system was showing some delay when I try to launch application or open up new browser etc.( 5-8 Seconds delay).

To Trobulshoot this I went with Process Monitor and caputered Traces by launching PowerShell.exe and Notepad.exe with the filter Enabled.

I found both notepad.exe and powershell.exe was having events related to browser manager.exe which seems to unrelated to both of this executables.




I uninstalled the  browser manager.exe from Control panel , and The system performance came to NORMAL

We are often Worried about , how much C:\ Drive Space is left on our Server or Client systems . Below script will help us to find out the C:\Drive space on Multiple servers and output will be save in CSV File with server name and its C:\Drive FreeSpace in GB

Get-WMIObject Win32_LogicalDisk -filter “DeviceId=’c:'” -computer (Get-Content c:\Computers.txt) | Select SystemName,@{Name=”freespace(GB)”;Expression={“{0:N1}” -f($_.freespace/1gb)}} | out-file C:\FreeSpace.csv –force

C:\Computers.txt contains list of servers/client systems on which you want to perform the Query

C:\FreeSpace.csv is output file where query result will be stored.

Hope this helps.
