Process Explorer 64 Bit - Stuck as your default Task Manager?

Did you set Process Explorer 64 bit (procexp64.exe) to "Replace Task Manager" but then decided you wanted to go back but couldn't? Well then you've come to the right place. The fix is to delete procexp64.exe from off your PC and download procexp.exe from (the 32 bit version) and run it. Within procexp.exe set "Replace Task Manager" from the Options menu and then set it again to deselect "Replace Task Manager". Voila! Back in business.

App-V 5.1 Sequencer: "time out has expired or operation has not been completed"

If you run across this error in the App-V Sequencer check the Event Log for AppV - Sequencer - Operational. You will probably find that the sequencer was not stopping a service (in my case it was the windows update service). It will show as "stopping". Set the service to disabled and then reboot. That should fix it.

Fix: The Group Policy Client Service Failed The Logon (Server 2008 R2)

1.) Login to the machine with the local administrator account or connect remotely from another server. 2.) Delete the profile for the user that's having the problem, i.e. C:\Users\User01 3.) Run Regedit, and remove the profile from HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows NT>CurrentVersion>Profile List>(SID) (you can right click on Profile List and do a search for the user name, i.e. User01. 4.) Once found delete the entire KEY for the user. 5.) Double check to ensure it's removed from System Properties>Advanced System Settings>Advanced TAB>User Profiles (Settings...) button> If you see the user in there, delete it too. 6.) Logoff as Local Admin and reboot. (Reboot not required but you may want to to be sure). 7.) Login with domain username.

APP-V Client TroubleshootingThere are links at the bottom for more troubleshooting.

Note - If there is a command line listed you can try to run that instead of using the gui, but you need to know the application GUID or complete name where needed.
