Unfortunately, that's not possible. Hwinfo can not be killed by the Taskmanager, only by reboot.Martin said:The attached Debug File unfortunately doesn't capture the problem - I'd need one created during the hang. Please run HWiNFO in Debug Mode again and after it hangs, please kill the application using Task Manager and attach the DBG file created.
I installed the IPMI stuff to play with a server, but don't need it any more. I renamed the driver in the windows/system32/drivers folder, so it's not listet by driverquery any more - still hwinfo hangs at detecting the IPMI #0 sensor. How do I uninstall this sensor?Martin said:I also noticed that this is a mobile system, so I'm wondering why there is an IPMI driver installed in system. Is there a need for it? Can you please try to disable or uninstall it to see if that helps ?
Martin said:It's no problem if a reboot is required - just perform it, don't launch HWiNFO again and grab the debug file stored.
The problem is that I installed a variety of IPMI tools and I uninstalled all of them to my best knowledge. This means I don't see that I have an IPMI sensor installed until hwinfo crashesMartin said:Well I don't know exactly, it depends on how you installed the IPMI driver/package. There might be a way to uninstall it from Control Panel or its Programs folder, or at least disable the IPMI driver via Administrative Tools.
