    Identifying an App?


    Greetings!

    Somewhere around since the RS2 Update I'm experiencing an unknown app to occasionally pop up but also immediately closing itself making it impossible with just with the eyes to identify what it is as it happens too fast.

    From my impression it looks like the typical black Command Line Window but I'm not certain.

    I mostly notice this when I watch YouTube or a Video in full screen as it will then kick me out of it which is kind of starting to get annoying.

    What would be the best way to identifying this unknown app when/after it happened again?

    Thanks in Advance =)

    :)

    System is identifying the hard drive as an SSD

    Hi Theodore,

    Your concern regarding your hard drive turning to SSD is more complex than what is typically answered in the Microsoft Answers forums. It is better suited for the IT Pro audience on TechNet.

    To help you further, we are providing your with a link to the Microsoft TechNet support site. The thread might be in the Windows 10 Insider category, but it is still applicable to your situation. You can participate in any discussions in TechNet,
    or start your new thread if you want to be more specific. The link is provided here:
    Microsoft TechNet - SSD instead of HDD.

    Let us know if there is any thing else we can do to help.

  3. System is identifying the hard drive as an SSD

    I have been unable to defragment my drive apparently because is has been labelled as an SSD unit within the system. This may have occurred after a MS Windows 10 update. How can I change it. Ted

    Mhh... Neither the Powershell Command:
    Get-BitsTransfer -AllUsers | select -ExpandProperty FileList | Select -ExpandProperty RemoteName

    Nor the Bitsadmin Buster.exe mentioned in the thread gave me any immediate ( any ) results.

    I'll keep investigating this issue using the other suggestions mentioned in the thread.
    If all else fails I'll probably reformat the PC just to be sure =)

    What were the results of the "Get-BitsTransfer -AllUsers..."?
    As Superfly said:
    Next step may be ADWCleaner to check for nasties.

    I get such a window on different versions of Windows when downloading from YouTube, seems to be completion of segments downloading into memory before completing the full video.

    All right...

    Focus didn't quite help either as when it triggered, which appears to happen every hour at XX:33, the only thing it displayed was:
    No foreground application | Wed May 03 18:33:27 2017

    Knowing timed thing I also ran NVidia Shadow Record alongside it which managed to pick it up revealing:

    officebackgroundtaskhandler.exe

    Doing a little research I arrived at the Task Sheduler:
    OfficeBackgroundTaskHandlerRegistration including a once every hour trigger.

    For now I disabled it and will now see how if it affects anything.

    Many thanks to anyone participating in this! =)

  11. I came across this same problem the past couple of days and noticed that it would happen every hour. This morning I finally fired up a screen recorder (Cyberlink) to see what the damn popup was. I was able to finally read the name and looking that up led me here. What is this background task supposed to do?

    No idea. Maybe checking Office account activation? Are you on Insider? They are having problems with it ATM.

    Okay, that explains it. I can't remember where I saw the thread offhand, but I do know there are some issues with Office Insider.
