comment How do I kill a process that is dead but listening?
Thanks, this was a good one. I was calling subprocess.call(..., cwd=..., shell=True) as an app-launcher in a python web server, and it turned out that I had to kill all those child processes to free the socket. The odd thing is that I'm using shell=True. This had me annoyed for ages.

comment An unknown tool is wiping our Virtual Machines and we can't ID it
I've seen a similar ui layout in Acronis Disc Director. Apparently it has a "clean up disk" feature (googled it), which I've never used. It appears to be running on your guest. You configure it via GUI (maybe it also has a command line exe) and this stuff happens upon reboot.

comment Windows 7 Paging file apparently not being used
Well, the issue got settled after moving over to 64bits, now it's the graphics card device driver which behaves very odd. We love computers.

@Tanner the Task Scheduler does have a pretty good GUI, it's definitely not a PowerShell-only thing. What? How can you ask this question after posting a valid answer?

BTW, this may also occur if you have chosen an email address which is later removed from the access permissions. Haven't verified this, though.

comment Windows 7 Paging file apparently not being used
@meguroyama yeah, thanks. I've already settled with the idea of having to move over to 64 bits, as soon as I can.

comment Windows 7 Paging file apparently not being used
@meguroyama The idea of using the pagefile was based on this assumption Addressing limits on 32-bit hardware Maybe it has to do with fragmentation, since the computer was running for many hours using the RAM maxed out almost all the time.

comment Windows 7 Paging file apparently not being used
Only the ramdisk has the pagefile enabled. I rebooted the PC, and noticed that afterwards the page file usage was able to increase to 30%. It's all a bit strange. It's an i7 930. Following the steps from superuser.com/a/468019 my system tells me that PAE is enabled. I'm seriously considering switching to 64 bit now, but it is so time consuming to configure all the details of the computer :( Any other ideas?
