    I did a clean install, applied my tweaks, restarted PC several times and it was working just fine.
    The next day I have noticed, that it is no longer working and I can not figure out why? Any ideas?
    I used the same tweaks before reinstall for months. Some other commands are not working either.

    Code:
    taskkill /f /im RadioSure.exe (any running exe)
    
    wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=0 call disable
    wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=1 call disable
    
    wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=0 call enable
    wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=1 call enable
    
    The error says: "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it."

    It suggests, that it is related to some service required in order for commands to work, first time I have ever heard about such thing? :confused:
    On the other PC, with Light tweaks applied, it works. I did sfc scan, restorehealth, reverted all settings to default and nothing. I am clueless.

    Did you disabled Eventlog service? or disabled the Event Trace Sessions in Computer Management?

    Taskkill needs WMI service to run.
