I am trying to resolve an issue of everything on my computer reacting very
very slow. I have gone to a number of sites recommended in MS Newsgroups
and nothing has done the trick so far. I have gone through all my logs just
looking for something that might direct me. I have come across numerous
times, files being referenced from my D:D rive which was only created when I
had to re-install Windows
quite some time back. I have just used it for some back up info (or so I
thought). What am I missing here? Obviously I do not know as much as I
should about a partition. Can you direct me on this?? And look at these logs
and event messages to tell me what they mean and what problem they might be
indicative of?

This is one of the event viewer logs:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: COM+
Event Category: (98)
Event ID: 4863
Date: 10/10/2004
Time: 2:24:34 PM
User: N/A
Computer: THEBEAST
Description:
TransactionManager->GetWhereabouts failed. If Distributed Transaction
Coordinator is configured to use remote host to coordinate transactions, it
is likely that remote host cannot be contacted. You can configure MSDTC to
use local coordinator by clicking MSDTC toolbar button in Component Services
MMC snap-in. Since further execution is impossible at this time, server
process has been terminated.
Server Application ID: {02D4B3F1-FD88-11D1-960D-00805FC79235}
Server Application Instance ID:
{035DC4BD-6F79-4106-A7CB-F4253D008EFA}
Server Application Name: System Application
Error Code = 0x8004d01b : The Transaction Manager is not available.
COM+ Services Internals Information:

Comsvcs.dll file version: ENU 2001.12.4414.258 shp


And what does this one mean? I have not been getting all my events when I go
to event viewer but this was not my priority issue. Plus I have not seen
this message before.

Event Type: Information
Event Source: dcfssvc
Event Category: None
Event ID: 105
Date: 10/13/2004
Time: 9:09:36 PM
User: N/A
Computer: THEBEAST
Description:
The description for Event ID ( 105 ) in Source ( dcfssvc ) cannot be found.
The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be
able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and
Support for details. The following information is part of the event: The
event log file is corrupt..


Also forgot: I am using Sysinternals Process Explorer. When my system was
stalling and task mgr showing cpu usage was maxed I checked the process
explorer. One of the svchost.exe was showing to be the process. I
highlighted it (PID 692), and among the hundred +/- handles was a line
saying:
D:\System Volume Information\tracking.log. So again I don't
understand and wonder how much of my current computer issues are related
to
this. AND

Make an exact note of the precise text of any error message. Minor
discrepancies can
make it harder to search for information about the error message.

You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Administrative Tools,
Event Viewer.
When researching the meaning of the error, information regarding Event
ID, Source
and Description are important.

HOW TO: View and Manage Event Logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;308427&Product=winxp

Part of the Description of the error will include a link, which you
should double click
for further information and you can copy using copy and paste.
http://go.microsoft.com/fw.link/events.asp
(Please note the hyperlink above is for illustration purposes only)

A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double
click on the
error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a button
resembling two
pages. Double click the button and close Event Viewer. Now start your
message
(email) and do a paste into the body of the message. This will paste the
info from the
Event Viewer Error Report complete with links into the message. Make
sure this is
the first paste after exiting from Event Viewer.

Links giving some information about specific Error Reports are:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/support/ee.asp

http://www.eventid.net/search.asp

These links, however, do not contain information about each and every
Error Report.

In Event Viewer there is no facility to print Error Reports. A
workaround is copy and
paste the Error Report into an email, send it to yourself and print off
the copy in your
Inbox or your Sent Items folder.

Event ID: 105 could be associated with Kodak Easyshare software - see
