Here is a quick little post that really helped me out this past week. I had a server that needed some TLC. Actually, it needed a lot of TLC and numerous reboots. I couldn’t bring down the entire production just to fix a little ‘ol server problem could I? So here is the answer I found that worked like a charm: The Registry! In particular this …particular… entry:
HKLM -> System -> Current Control Set -> Control -> Session Manager -> Pending file rename
Now, here is the answer and the warning: Do NOT delete the key itself – just the contents of the key. And a further warning: you results may vary: It worked for me but does not always prove to be as beneficial. However, there is no harm in trying (remember: as long as you don’t delete the key – just the contents!)
Until next time Interwebs!
