comment Restart the PC remotely
Good point, I was too quick to answer. I used to use sc to restart services (VNC), not the whole PC.

No, ours did not ask us. All our PCs were WinXp (SP2 I believe).

comment Managed Sharing of a Windows Computer Preferably Using Remote Desktop
Yes, I often use VNC for the above reason. But Remote Desktop is faster, more robust (it rarely forgets to update the screen) and more network-bandwidth friendly.

comment Driver with tag “Stor” on Windows XP (32 bit)
Confirmed, Daemon Tools v3.46 driver was the cause. I removed Daemon Tools and not the PC has been healthy for several weeks.

comment Networked USB Flash Drive
Could Nokia N810 give me the hardware I need? It has a USB-slave-port, it runs linux. I am a software engineer (a physicist by education), I would definitely welcome off-the-shelf hardware.

comment Driver with tag “Stor” on Windows XP (32 bit)
iaStor.sys was my original suspect, but it is listed in the poolmon output and seems to have reasonable and stable numbers.

I tried 2007-vintage poolmon.exe. It indicates that iastor.sys and usbstor.sys might be innocent. The offender is: Stor Nonp 169527 ( 13) 950 ( 0) 168577 49377328 ( 3744) 292 Unknown Driver BTW: xns2 is my Philips webcam. It does take 40MB but it seems to behave ok. As far as iastor.sys, this is 2004-04 PC, my version of iastor is the one recommneded by INTEL.

iaStor.sys is the storage driver for my on-board RAID-1. I am booting from this RAID, I am not sure what I should do next.

1) I found nice program, PoolTag.exe from www.osr.com. Like pooplmon.exe, but w GUI, easy to save a log, etc. 2) What leaks is tag STOR: OSR's PoolTag Reporter Sat Jun 27 10:33:24 2009 1332 tags shown Active filters: (none) PTAG PAG/NON # Allocs # Frees Alloc-Free Used ---- ------- --------- --------- ---------- --------- xns2 NON 7 0 7 40341504 Stor NON 88905 1387 87518 26021824 Hard to identify the offending driver, either iaStor.sys or usbstor.sys. My bet is INTEL iaStor.sys, ver 5.5.0.1035
