Regsvr32.exe 100% CPU

We are experiencing a few issues on a few of our Citrix Servers.

Regsvr32.exe process runs approx 5-8 processes trying to regsiter dlls etc.. When users are logged into Citrix applications.

The think is there is no pattern of when this occurs.

Process Monitor Log file is attached.

I am not able to find out what user or what process is initiating the REGSVR32.exe

windows systernals can help you determine the root of the process.  I would use process explorer to accomplish that.

Hi,

Has anything change recently to the network or server environment?  Any patches installed, configuration changes???
Zaheer IqbalTechnical Assurance & ImplementationAuthor Commented:
Nothing has changed recently - but the issue used to happen for a little while and go away maybe its something to do with patching - windows updates etc.. We are not sure until we can get to the bottom ie root cause and what process i actually cauisng regsvr32.exe to initiate.

Ok ,looks as though we may have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is caused by a Crystal Report which ran within our IFS applications.
We are investigating further why it only occurs with this one report

The issue was an Crystal Report which was badly written.
