Registry process shows "[A device attached to the system is not functioning.]" for its image path. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why does the registry process show "[A device attached to the system is not functioning.]" for its image path?

    All devices on my notebook are functioning correctly to the best of my knowledge.  Device Manager does not show any problems.

    My system is Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

    Thank you.

    Jeff

  • Hi MarkC(MSFT),

    I'm just checking in on this because a new version of Process Explorer (v16.22) was released on December 11, 2018, but did not include a fix for this.  The version when I first reported this on November 26, 2018 was v16.21.

    I realize that this is not a serious problem, but just didn't want it to fall through the cracks.

    Thanks!

    Jeff

  • Like always! Rare are Microsoft people answers on this forum *that are to the point*!

    You are most probably seeing that because whatever process you see is run in VSM mode. More on that here: http://woshub.com/virtual-secure-mode-vsm-in-windows-10-enterprise/

    Quote: "You can make sure that the VSM is active if Secure System process is present in the Task Manager."

    Quote: "This architecture allows to protect data in the VSM, even if the kernel of the host Widows 10 is compromised, because even the kernel cannot access the VSM directly."

    You can also get info about the same process in TaskManager. You just need to know which process to examine.


    M.K.
