So far, the antivirus definitions updated as recently as yesterday are the likely culprit.

See if you can create an exclusion for psexec, psexesvc, or some other way to short-circuit the AV rules. I haven't had any luck doing that though.

Are you able to completely disable it and retry?

UAC is disabled on all my machines, and I still have my issue, which is probably the same as the one reported here.

Which antivirus are you using? I've got McAfee. Have you tried letting psexec hang there for a few minutes and see if it eventually works? Mine takes anywhere from 90 seconds to 15 minutes, and then it just wakes up from its nap and works as expected.

Did you install windows updates in the last couple of days? Do you have antivirus installed? When did it update itself last?

I'm having the same problem as of yesterday: serverfault.com/questions/760869/psexec-slow-to-start-a-process/…

comment PsExec slow to start a process
The procmon trace is huge, so I can't include all the events. But yes, there is McAfee involved. We've disabled it to the extent possible on the machine, but the issue persists. We don't see DNS requests, only LDAP requests to the domain controller for authentication, but those are quick.

I ran procmon, and you can see the long delay. Otherwise, it's very unrevealing. I've filtered the view to "begins with psexe" to include both psexec and psexesvc. imgur.com/2CSknwl

I don't see that particular KB anywhere, and the most recent KB was 5 days ago. Things were working well more recently than that, so that can't be it.

So PsExec is permanently broken by this KB? Or are we waiting for another KB to fix the regression?

Which update has the known issue?

comment PsExec slow to start a process
I just tried those, and it doesn't seem to have any effect. It's interesting because this slowness just started today. The IT guys swear nothing changed ;-) It used to start rather instantaneously.

comment Which registry key corresponds to “Log on as a service”?
Right, so my question is really about the proper API then. I moved my question over to SO. Thanks. stackoverflow.com/questions/31274146/…

Why gpedit.msc and not secpol.msc? I'm using secpol to edit it now. It must be stored somewhere. It's not a secret lol

I'm also not domain admin. Just a user which happens to have admin rights on a machine.
