    msinfo32.exe where does it get its information from?


    I installed Surfshark VPN and after that had some crazy info in start-up , but only when I use system information, so i made a copy of the sytem information and searched and found:

    <Category name="Start-up Programs">
    <Data>
    <Program><![CDATA[]]></Program>
    <Command><![CDATA[需尙ȑ]]></Command>
    <Username><![CDATA[NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM]]></Username>
    <Location><![CDATA[HKU\S-1-5-18\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]]></Location>
    </Data>
    If I go back to a resore point before Surfshark this info above is gone, Install Surfshark and its back?

    Wonder who can piont me to where this garbage can be deleted

    :)

    MSInfo32.exe won't work.

    Whenever MSInfo32.exe is run, it immediately shuts down and states that "System Information has stopped working". Has anyone had a similar problem, and how was it fixed?

  3. msinfo32.exe consistently using 25% of CPU

    Msinfo32.exe opens on its own and keeps running, like it does for amanofgod4ever,

    then it pops up again about every 30 minutes. I have strong CPU it's not really an issue for me, BUT WHY it keeps popping up all the time?

    This appears to be a useless cycle, and I'm thinking about deleting msinfo32 altogether.

    Hello,



    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.



    I would suggest you to follow the methods given below and check.



    Method 1:

    Try to run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption.
    SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      sfc /scannow
    If the issue still exists, try the next method.



    Method 2:

    You may check the same issue with the new user account.

    Try these steps to create a new user account and check if it fixes the issue. Refer to the steps below to create a new User Account:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts and then select Other User Accounts towards the left.
    • Select Add an Account.
    • Enter a user name and hit Next.
    • Click on Finish.
    • Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    • Check if issue persists.

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
