I'm having problems with my system slowing way down. When I do a
Cntrl/ALt/Delete, I find that the subject file "is not responding". The
system goes back to normal if i exit the application.
I assume this is a Microsoft system manager type file. I found it in
C:\WINDOWS\APPLOG.
Can anyone tell me what this file is and why it might not be responding?

Where is that file located...?...

C:\Program Files\Broderbund\PhotoShow Deluxe\data\xtras\mssysmgr.exe

Then, it is part of your PhotoShow. The one in C:\WINDOWS\APPLOG would
be normal. It is used by Defrag to optimize file placement.

(1) When did you install PhotoShow? Was it tough to do? Perhaps,
un/re-install it properly.

(2) See whether a fit/proper Scandisk/Defrag will shake (not stir)
things back to running order...

Articles about Scandisk
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q286263
Articles about Defrag

I must warn that Scandisk may not do a great job when there is a
great one to do...
http://cquirke.mvps.org/9x/scandisk.htm
Therefore, perhaps UNcheck "Automatically fix errors" on it's front
screen. It will then ask whether you want each error fixed. If it sounds
truly horrible, say "No!", and post the log. The log will be
"C:\Scandisk.log". Do not let it constantly restart, either. (When
running Scandisk in DOS, there won't be such a box to uncheck. You must
"Scandisk /Checkonly", instead. It will write to the same .log. The
Auto-Scandisk that runs from DOS after a crash must be set to "Prompt"
the bad ones in C:\Windows\Command\Scandisk.ini.) REALLY, in light of
all THAT, the BEST thing to do is to have a full system backup to run
to! Would you like my list of backup apps?

1. Turn off screen saver (R-Clk Desktop, Properties, Screen Saver--
None)
2. Turn off power management (Control Panel, Power Management-- Always
On,Never,Never,Never)
3. Disable any permanent internet cable connection, perhaps.
4. Suspend Task Scheduler
5. Turn off interfering programs. Use "StartupCop" or "EndItAll2" from
PCMag (below). Or "START, Run, MSConfig, Startup tab". Note what is
unchecked. Then, go to the General tab & disable the entire Startup
Group, by clicking "Selective.." & unchecking "Load Startup...". Reboot.
Don't forget to re-enable before the next boot.
6. Use "HDValet" from PCMag, or
(a) "Control Panel, Internet Options, Delete Files button, bolt Delete
all offline content, OK, OK"
(b) "START, Run, %TEMP%", & delete all files that will let you. This
will likely be "C:\Windows\Temp". This is best done after a fresh boot,
unless you have not seen the message "Reboot to complete this install".
7. Run Scandisk (Thorough, usually w/o write testing. Check all three
items under "Scandisk, Advanced button, 'Check files for' box". If you
want to be informed as it does a fix, UNcheck "Automatically fix errors"
on the front screen, or look inside "C:\Scandisk.log" afterwards.)
8. "START, Run, Defrag /p /details". Apparently, "/p" Defrags the
unmovables.

The purpose of steps 1-5 is only to prevent constant restarts of
Scandisk & Defrag, if you get them; but DEFINITELY turn off the Virus
Scanner. Scandisk should be done perhaps once a month, and certainly
after every serious crash. Do a Defrag after a sluggish boot or when
this says so:
http://www.pcmag.com/ 's CrackUp, by Gregory A. Wolking & Bob Flanders.
Also, take DiskAction, to determine what is constantly writing to the
HDD, which causes the restarts. Take BHOCop & StartupCop too.

"DiskAction" reports the last 12 processes that access any partition. It
discovered the Microsoft Windows Critical Update Notification tool was
accessing my HDD every five minutes. It can be uninstalled in "Control
Panel, Add/Remove Programs". Then, occasionally, "START, Windows Update"
on your own.

"BHOCop" found a Browser Helper Object called Wavehelper Class, created
by "Wavetop", that was building a monstrosity of an error log called
"Logit.txt" in here. "START, Find, F/F, Logit.txt"-- see one?

Now, my hard drive is quieter than my mouse. (Of course, I now also have
384 MB RAM, up from an initial 64, eliminating Swap File activity.)

Run MSCONFIG

Click on Startup

Remove the check mark in the TaskMonitor box.

See if that straightens things out.

Thanks for your input. Yes i did recently install Photoshow (about a month
ago) but I don't recall having any problem. So, i haven't tried to
reinstall. I did run Scandisk and Defrag but Mssysmgr still not responding.
I also unchecked the Task Monitor box in Startup config. as suggested by Hugh
Candlin. Still no luck.

You mentioned some programs I might try; i'm interested in DiskAction
because it might tell me what's writing to HDD. Is that also available at
www.pcmag.com?

Thanks for very informative inputs. I don't have answer yet but you gave me
lot's of good ideas that help in the process of elimination.

Did you reboot after the change?

You could also run MSINFO32,
expand the "Software Environment" group.
and look at the "Running Tasks"
to see if there is anything listed
that you feel may be the cause.

I didn't find any useful info at the simplestar sites. I did send an e-mail
to simplestar asking about the problem; if i'm lucky, maybe somebody can
help. The castlecops site did not have any applicable info either, tho' it
does give some suggestions for removing errors. Maybe thru this site i can
find an answer.

Thanks for your input.

I re-did Task Monitor thing and made sure i had re-booted; still no luck.
I also ran msinfo32; i don't see anything suspicious in the Running Tasks
list, tho' i'm not familiar with some of the tasks (i.e. some tasks from
Creative Technology such as "still image devices monitor ' and a
"mixer-loader" task). All the rest were generally familiar (e.g. microsoft,
firewall, and antivirus stuff).

Try the Broderbund/PhotoShow site for FAQs, or look for them in it's
folder or for a Readme. "mssysmgr" is not mentioned at the MSKB that I
saw. Here is the Google result...
http://groups-beta.google.com/groups?q=mssysmgr&hl=en
GG finds 12 "mssysmgr" mentionings.

http://www.pcmag.com/ Has many, many great utilities: BHOCop, COA2,
ContextEdit, Crackup, DiskAction, EndItAll2, Folders, HDValet, InCtrl5,
ListZapper, RegDetective, RegEdit+, StartupCop, WinTidy, etc. Now,
suddenly, there is a subscription fee at PCMag, but it's worth it,
especially if you can get the whole bundle that is there.

..........Start..................
Yearly billing $19.97
Yearly billing (For PC Magazine subscribers) $14.97
Monthly billing (limit 3 downloads/month) $4.97
..........End...................

You may try Google, but do you really want to download from any odd
site?
