@thor I did see the issue again a bit on 3.3.0 Was wondering if it had anything to do with deleting the database and allowing osquery to remake it so I didnt respond further. Since then I have added a new Win10 machine clean and installed 3.3.1. I reconfigured it and ran . All seemed well on the first manual stop from Services.exe. Appeared to be using the new configuration. After one more restart and stop via Services.exe it once again hung the osqueryd.exe running/holding files and LOCK while the services.exe output showed stopped.
