    Hi, I cannot get WEI to run. It worked originally but since a powercut, when I press the Rate This Computer button nothing happens, it's as if the button does not get pressed.

    I have a I7 860 processor, gigabyte ga-p55-ud6 m/b, 4gb dd3 ram, segate barracuda 20gb hdd, ati saphire HD 5670 graphoc card.

    Any ideas much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Start menu > gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Performance Control Panel > Turn off access to the performance center core section > Properties > Disabled

    or reg:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Performance Control Panel]
    "PerfCplEnabled"=-

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Performance Control Panel]
    "PerfCplEnabled"=-



    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If it still doesn't work, then cmd => sfc /scannow with 7 DVD in drive.

    Ok, i've tried typing gpedit.msc in both search and run boxes but neither can find gpedit.msc.
    In regedit, I can go to Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows but control panel is missing.

    i've tried cmd => sfc /scannow with 7 DVD in drive but nothing happens.

    Sorry, i'm possibly being very thick and doing all this wrong!!!

    I'm using windows 7 premium x64 from upgrade version.

    Do you have an administrator account?

    Create a shortcut

    C:\Windows\System32\gpedit.msc

    and double click it.

    Do not set those values 1, as the sign "-" is supposed to delete the value PerfcplEnabled if it exists.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Again, normally with the Windows Experience Index working, the value PerfclpEnabled does not exist under those branches. If it does, then the index page is blank and not working.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    There are two ways to enable Windows Experience Index:

    1. Through reg:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\Control Panel\Performance Control Panel]
    "PerfCplEnabled"=-

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Wind ows\Control Panel\Performance Control Panel]
    "PerfCplEnabled"=-




    2. GPEDIT.MSC:

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Performance Control Panel > Turn off access to the performance center core section > Set it to Not configured or Enabled

    and also here

    User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Performance Control Panel > Set it to Not configured or Enabled



    ~~~~~~



    I don't know what exactly happened to mrtickle's Windows Experience Index, but it is worth taking those steps above. If no luck and sfc /scannow doesn't detect any errors, then I suggest:

    cmd -> chkdsk /f

    be patient enough for the operation to complete.
