Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

Question: Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

Just this afternoon, I went to use my PC and got the following error; Windows has experienced a critical error and will restart in 1 minute.

Running Windows 7 64 bit....With automatic updates so it should be the latest version of Windows...

My anti virus (Avira 2012 Internet Suite) pops up and states I have 2 viruses. But before the AV can do anything (delete the files) Windows shuts down....I finally got into Safe Mode and tried running my AV, while it was scanning I then got a BSOD. Had to start all over again; Running MalwareBytes now before trying to do the AV scan, just to see if MalwareBytes catches anything.

I have uninstalled the only application I've installed in 3 months, and problem still persists...

I have a Hijackthis log if it needs to be viewed...Just let me know and I'll upload it.

Preferred Solution: Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

when you get the 1 minute warning, try typing from the start menu "shutdown -a" or "shutdown /a", and the countdown should go away, and you should be able to remove the viruses.

Be sure to disable your system restore backups (delete them), or the viruses may come back. Re-enable them as soon as you are sure you have gotten rid of the viruses.

I recently have been getting the Error message Windows has encountered a critical error and will close in one minute.
I do not have the Brazilian financial Active X control that became corrupted, or if I do, I cannot find it. I have Vista 32-bit on an Acer Aspire laptop. This message comes up after I login and I can either access the Internet via Safe mode w/Networking, or do a System Restore, at which time the laptop works for about two or three times and then the error message comes back.
Do I have a bug? Please help!!!!

Answer:Error Message 0x80070005 critical error - windows will close in one minute

I followed the preparation guide and when I tried to run dds.scr, the black screen came up really fast and then disappeared and nothing ever came up. When I tried to run RootRepeal.exe, I was able to tell it to scan, but then I never received a report. When I tried to run it again, it said that I didn't have permission, and when I tried to delete it, it said the same thing! I am the administrator...I have Vista 32bit and I am getting the error code 0x80070005 windows has encountered a critical error and will now close. I run system restore to get it to stop, but that only works a few times, and then I get the error message again.
What do I do now??

Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?
my computer says this each time it is started in normal start-up mode. I recently got the Doctor Malware virus and I downloaded the anti malware software to get rid of it but i cant update it or even find out if it did anything because now every time i try to start up in normal mode i get the message "windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and it restarts.
also, i've already tried a system restore
also, unfortunately, i cant even run safe mode with networking. so no internet.
i tried a couple registry cleaner. it seemed to find and fix a lot stuff but then when i restarted the computer and it still shut down right away.

Answer:Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?

Try getting to safe mode and do the following:
Just turn on your computer with F8 pressed.

Choose Safe Mode option.

Logon using your Administrator level user.

Next, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run...

Type MSCONFIG and click OK.

Go to the SERVICES tab and search for Gbp Service.

Uncheck it and click OK.

Restart and see if the problem is gone.

Hi. I have recently had a few problems with my laptop which is only a couple of months old. A few days ago I received numerous warnings about Trojan threats through Windows Defender. My AVG scanner is not working (looking into this) so I am not yet certain if there is a real threat on my computer.

Anyway, starting yesterday and continuing today, when starting my laptop, I receive an error message saying that there has been a 'critical error' and that the laptop will restart in 1 minute. This morning, I received this message 4 times in a row and only on my 5th restart did I not get the message.

I have no idea whether this error is linked to Trojan threats or anything else but it is very worrying for me, seeing as my laptop is new.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

My machine had a virus attack. I used the instructions for Anti-malaware bytes and tried to remove it. Now the machine shuts down as soon it is started. I get an error message saying, "windows has encountered a critical error and will close in one minute". That happens in all the different modes, safe, safe with networking, normal etc and happens with internet on or off.
I am not able to run any logs as recommended by you because I don't get enough time to run anything. The machine boots and just shuts down.

Please help. I have humongous amount of data, that I can't even access because of this issue.

Thanks

Thanks in advance for your help. It appears I have randomly picked up a virus of some sort wherein whenever I am connected to the internet, my computer gives the "Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now." message, and my computer restarts as the message states. I have run adaware and malwarebytes' antimalware with mixed results, and downloaded a windows malware removal tool, but none have completely eliminated the problem. I can turn the internet off via a switch on my netbook (it is a HP Mini 110-1100 with Windows 7 Starter), and when I have that turned off before I log in, the computer works as normal, but of course the internet is a much-needed tool.

Yesterday, while using my computer, my anti-virus 'Microsoft Security Essentials' popped up stating it had found a virus. Within a second, a windows update window popped up with an update ready to install, followed immediatly by 'AntiSpyware Doctor' and a window saying 'Windows has encountered a serious error and will shut down in one minute' which it then proceeded to do. This continues to appear everytime the computer is started.

Starting the computer in safe mode allowed me to use Malware Bytes to eliminate Antispyware docter, as it no longer appears when starting the computer, however the error message ,above, still continues. I believe the problem occurs only when the computer is connected to the internet as it does not occur if i am able to stop my computer from automatically connecting to the internet upon startup.

I tried a system restore, however it fails and reports a problem with a file in the drivers folder in the system 32 folder. I am unable to interact with this file at all as the computer tells me it is unable to find the source disc whenever i try.

I have access to a Windows Install disc.

first off I appreciate sevenforums allowing me to post here..please excuse any typos b/c of my pc problem Im forced to type from my ppc.

Whenever I boot up in normal mode or safe with networking I get an error that says windows critical error. your computer will restart in 1 minute. I know its from something to do with the network b/c I can boot in normal mode fine with my nw cable unplugged and then I plug it in and the error msg comes up again and the pc goes in a rebooting cycle..In the event viewer it says eventid 7001 I think and various errors...the funny thing is that this happened last week and it went away and now it has come back and wont go away!

please seven forums help me out.. thanks

Answer:critical error 1 minute pc will restart due to network prob!

Did this always happen, or is this something new? If it just happened, did it occur after a Windows update, or you updating a driver? Try restoring your computer to a date before any of this occurred. Does this address the problem?

Oh, and check out:
Event ID 7001
for event log errors.
You will need to know the source as well as the type.
Let us know how this goes.

When I started this post i read through the similar threads and was trying to run the FRST.exe found through this link.

For 32-bit (x86) systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.

followed its directions and got to the disclaimer and accepted.

a split second later before i could even click scan the computer powers down.

now the computer wont get past the bios load.

Is there anything that can still be done? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi all,

My father is having desktop eMachine with Windows vista 32 bit home. AMD dual core some kind of from eMachine. There was some problem that his pc was getting slower and slower. So I did check his PC but there was no problem found on it as I have scanned it with Norton latest version which is installed on the same machine. Logs were clean. Also having SPYBOT on it. It was showing all clean logs. I have decided to install Microsoft security Essential with that as I did not find any virus/malware prob. As I have been using different kind of Antiviruses on different machines in real life with Microsoft Security essential and did not have any Compatibility issues.

But after installing that I found list of viruses Microsoft Security Essential have detected. Which was having same Virus but with different strings. sirefef.r
sirefef.ag sirefef.ad sirefef.b etc.. list is long.. When Microsoft Security Essential tried to remove it at that time problem started. It quarantined almost half but then System gave Critical Error Msg and gave msg that it will restart in one minute. every time when I start it will restart in 1 minute. Then I have tried safe mode but it worked for twice only then it started giving same error in SAFE MODE too and restarted.

On Tuesday morning around 8:15 I got a little dialog box that stated (as close as I can recall) that Windows had encountered a critical problem and would restart in one minute, and that I should save my work. When I clicked my start button I saw that the restart option was grayed out, so I just had to sit there and wait for the restart to happen. Once it did and the computer was back, everything seemed normal. I looked in the Event Viewer and the nearest thing I could find to a cause was something about lsass.exe having stopped working. Also, later I noticed in the Windows update control panel that Windows Defender had updated itself at 8 AM that morning (at least according to my OS).

Relevant details: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit- I was running Firefox, iTunes and Steam at the time. My antivirus program is avast! free version. Everything is updated. My version of Java was one revision out of date (7 update 4 instead of 5--since fixed). I use FoxIt Reader and not Adobe so that's not a vector. I ran a full Malwarebytes scan and found nothing. Also ran TDSSkiller.exe and found no problems.

There has been no strange behavior since the forced reboot, and there were Windows updates installed yesterday, and everything seems to be behaving properly, but on another forum I frequent someone said this might be a rootkit, so I'm paranoid. Is there something I can do to be sure?

Answer:Win7 "critical error" restarting in 1 minute message--infection?

It looks like ZeroAccess rootkit.Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get.

Shortly after starting up Windows7 I get the message "Windows Encountered a Crirical Problem and Will Restart in 1 Minute..." and then the PC restarts in 1 minute. It does the same thing in safe mode. It happens every time I start it up and leaves no time to run anything to stop a malware process like rkill and restarts before tdsskiller can complete a scan.I doubt there is any real hardware problem because it started happening just after installing software from the internet that is supposed to backup DVDs to a harddrive. I was also experiencing browser redirect problems before. If I can't cure the problem I will have to try to save any data I need by booting it into an OS on a live CD like some version of linux and then do a reinstall of Windows7. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that so if anybody can help it would be great.

Hello. I was just browsing the internet when all of a sudden a fake virus scanner came up (Antimalware Doctor) and started automatically scanning. After about 30 seconds or so of "scanning", I get a window popup saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." So I restarted the PC in Safe Mode, and I no longer get the message. If I do Safe Mode with Networking or a normal boot, I get the message. (Seems to be whenever I am connected to the internet) So naturally, I cannot download any software in time while connected to the internet before it reboots. However, I am on my laptop and am able to transfer files with a flash drive if needed. I have run SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes and managed to get rid of the Antimalware Doctor, but I'm still having problems with "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." whenever my computer is connected to the internet.

[Sirefef virus]Hi all.It looks like I've picked up a virus while browsing the internet (Drive-by infection).

Couple years old, and windows 7 now installed for the first time.

And now suddenly it started saying "critical error in windows, windows is rebooting in 1 minute. Safe all your files"
And then it rebootes and then it gives the error again after around 30 seconds when it is in windows itself.

I have no idea what it is and the repair option didn't find the answer it said it is unsolvable via the repair function and it is an unknown problem.

How/where can I see why windows keeps rebooting?
And when I do a new system install, do I then keep my files or will the HD be formatted?

Also I can't get into safe mode via F8 and I just noticed when I unplugged the network cable for internet that I get a message from windows firewall that it asks if 80899.exe should be allowed, and I don't get the critical error now.
Already a virus in such a short notice?

Constantly also getting the error:
"80899.exe stopped working"

Answer:Critical error reboot loop

What was the software you installed exactly?

And does the same thing happen if you boot in to safe mode?

So ever since I upgraded to a GeForce GTX 460, I've been getting these ~1min long freezes every time my PC just finished loading Windows (either after a cold boot or reboot).

What could be causing this?

EDIT: This didn't happen to me with my old Radeon HD 5770.

Answer:Windows freezes for over ~1 minute after each cold boot/reboot

I would suspect a driver issue fist thing. Check here for the July 2010 version: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Hello,

Last week I got the Live Security Platinum virus on my laptop (was running the latest version of MS security essentials). I tried running malwarebytes, but was unable (the program would not launch), and my MS Security Essentials seems to have been uninstalled/disabled.

I tried booting in to safe mode & safe mode w/command prompt, but to no avail. The virus seems to have happened after I installed an adobe update, but I can't be certain.

After seeing another post here for a user with a very similar problem, I've run the FRST tool and have attached my log below.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Live Security Platinum Virus + Critical error shutdown/reboot

Hello kengscott,

Welcome to the forum.

In case you still need assistance please download the latest version of FRST and run a fresh scan.

In case you have used msconfig to disable startup entries please enable them all before running FRST so that we can see and remove them.

In case I didn't get a reply I'll close the topic after 3 days.

I've got a problem. This laptop starts over after reboot, within 2 minutes. Gets the error: Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart in one minute.

MS Security Essentials thinks it has SIREFIR. But wont clean. I cant get MALWAREBYTES to run.

Would hate to reinstall... Attached is FRST log.

What's my next step?

Dear Bleeping Computer

New user here - and you might be my only hope...

Had a feeling encountered malware today. Quickly closed down IE and ran MalwarebytesAM with its Chameleon which picked up a couple of threats and seemed to remove them. Then ran TDSSKIller as well just to be on safe side. I'm running Win7 64.

However then Windows Firewall turned itself off for some reason. Tried uninstalling then reinstalling Microsoft Security Essentials only for it to get locked in an infinite restart loop with the error "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart in one minute" This happens in both normal and safe modes.

Found my way here where others seem to be having similar issues and d/l and used FRST tool to produce a log below. However despite going into advanced boot options, couldn't find the 'Repair My Computer' option,and putting Windows 7 disk in again - there was no repair/upgrade option to get me into System Recovery and give me the Command Prompt. Log file then just taken by clicking on the FTST64.exe in the flash drive.
Anyway log provided below: Any expert help gratefully received!

I have a Dell 1545 with almost nothing loaded on it. Had auto updates on (I KNOW, I KNOW..sigh) and the critical updates that installed "hacker security patches" caused my puter to do a System Restore upon the re-boot. My free avg scans were FAR too clean...I mean ZERO problems. I knew that was suspicious, as like most of us I have the ADTP(cant remember exact acronym) tracker cookie from Windows ALWAYS show up, and that went away.

Constant problems for days. Google Chrome is browser. I checked EVERYTHING..finally, I tried to create new user account, suspicious. Sure enough, the name "Scammer Hacker [email protected]" was already in use. Ha! I uninstalled free AVG, and tried PC Dr. They found 4 low threats, and 77 tracking/malware problems, but wanted me to enter cc info online (What???) before fixing.

Sooo installed the free TRIAL of full AVG and all seems FINE..but found nothing. How does PC Dr find so many issues and a FULL paid version of AVG doesnt find ONE thing wrong?

I also once again tried to update Adobe and was told that I do not have permissions

I need some serious help and guidance....pleaaaassse. Thank you SO much!! Barby

Why didn't I come here first? That's what I keep asking. In any event, here's my situation. Several weeks ago, I had something pop up identified as "Live Security Platinum". Knowing it was a virus, I was able to run Malwarebytes and it seemed to get rid of it. Then the computer got caught in this endless loop of the message popping up with "Windows has encountered a critical problem & will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now". Sure enough, it cycles and continuously reboots.

MSE always pops up as trying to clean the infection showing as Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.AH
Details show file:C:\Windows\system32\services.exe-> and container file C:\Windows\system32\services.exe

Looking for advice elsewhere, I ran Kapersky Rescue Disk and it seemed to get rid of a few things as well, but the loop remains. I have tried safe mode and unplugging network/internet cable, all to no avail. I then found your site and, I again say why didn't I come here first?!?

I have reviewed many of the logs for similar problems as well as the prep guide and so forth. Here is what I have to report. I tried to turn off windows firewall and it initially came back with the message "Due to an unidentified problem, windows cannot display Windows Firewall Settings." After messing around trying to do some other things, it now says "The Windows Firewall service is not running."... Read more

Hi! Had good results with this forum; back again!Working on my nephew's computer, I noticed Google searches were being redirected. Microsoft didn't catch the initial problem so I ran Malwarebytes and Eset Online scanner which found and clean some problems. Rebooted. Microsoft Security Essentials found Sirefef trojan, cleaned and rebooted. Now every I boot the computer it says it will "restart automatically in one minute" (both safe and normal mode)OS is VistaAV is MSEAdvanced Boot options does NOT give me "Repair you computer" optionI do not have the Windows installation disk, although it might be possible to find with a lot of hunting.Please help!(As an aside, the reason I went to my nephew's computer was to check on the router... On my laptop my Symantec Endpoint Protection was giving me popups that it a "port scan attack is logged" coming from the router. Since it was being blocked I figured I would use the other computer to view router's admin page.)

I've searched this problem already and found several threads with what appears to be the same issue but I haven't found a thread that matches everything going on with my computer.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on an Asus Intel-based motherboard.

First, this problem started last night. Started when I ran a virus scan in MS Security Essentials. It picked up a few viruses and quarantined them. I selected remove and restarted. Then the critical error came and my computer then began it's infinite restarting cycle. I googled solutions on my phone and came to a thread that suggested I use Kaspersky. I saved it onto a CD and ran it successfully. Kaspersky found a virus and disinfected it. I tried booting normally and still critical error. Same error in safe mode. I attempted the shutdown /a -a method in reg and safe mode to no avail. I hit F8 on boot and tried using Repair Your Computer. That doesn't take me to the repair list, just forces my computer to boot normally OR put me at the Launch System Repair or Boot Windows normally. I select Launch System repair and it just refreshes that screen. I select Boot Windows, since thats my only option, and boots my computer and critical errors.

Please help me out. I need to fix this computer.
 

Answer:"Critical error, reboot in 1 min"

Another detail I should include: When I hit F8 and choose to disable system restart on failure, it disregards my command and restarts due to the error.

I have a several month old Dell Dimension 4600 running WinXP Home, with dual monitors, which runs great, I'm happy. If I have to reboot for some reason, everything shuts down fine, but system shows the F2/ F12 screen briefly, then goes to black screen with the underline cursor
for 5 minutes! After 5 minutes, the HD kicks in, XP loads normally and everything runs fine. Scanning through the various BIOS setup items, Fast Boot is on, system is set to boot from C: first, then CD; and there dont seem to be any "weird" or obviously wrong settings of any kind. Any suggestions?
I have also run msconfig and gone though turning off start up programs, etc. but once loading XP begins, everything runs fine, just takes 5 minutes to start...

Hello,

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit laptop which is infected with the Win32/sirefef.ah trojan. As soon as the Microsoft Security Essentials launces it causes the system to give this error: WINDOWS HAS ENCOUNTERED A CRITICAL PROBLEM AND WILL RESTART AUTOMATICALLY IN ONE MINUTE and then reboots. This happens a regular boot and in safe mode. MSE cannot be uninstalled either. I've read other threads and would like to know when program needs to be run first so i may supply the log files. Your help is apprecaited.

I have a lenovo ideapady400 that is now almost 2 months old. Earlier today, I noticed that it did not properly go into hibernate when I shut it. The keyboard was still lit up, with no LCD display (including not if I hit Fn+F2) and with the fan at high rpms. I shut it down by holding the powerbutton, and upon rebooting it, it took over 4 minutes to get back to the desktop. It now requires the 4 minutes every time I restart, and it never goes into hibernate with the lid closed (it must be shut down by the power button).Fearing that the computer may be having a serious issue, I tried to make a backup with Onekey recovery, which failed to write a backup (repeatedly). It returned an error saying it couldn't access the partition. I then uninstalled onekey recovery, downloaded it again from the lenovo website. Now when I run onekey recovery it says my system is not able to write a backup.I am now stuck in a tough spot of not being able to backup my laptop and and not being able to do a recovery without losing everything. On the lenovo support site, when I select startup issues, the feedback it gives me is "Thank you for your question. This is a known problem and a solution is being developed. Please check back for updates."Anyone have any ideas what could be causing the main (shutdown/startup) issue?As the laptop is under warranty, should I just send it back to Lenovo?

Answer:ideapad y400 won't shutdown/4 minute reboot

hi hansweeks,
 
If you PC came with a HDD+SSD drive, try to boot into the BIOS (by repeatedly pressing F2 on startup) and check if both the HDD and SSD are detected (if you're missing one, that HDD might be faulty and needs to be replaced.
 
If both HDD's are detected (or if your PC came with only a SATA HDD) try to run an HDD diagnostic. Try HD Tune to run HDD error checking in WIndows or create a bottable HDD diagnostic (see steps below).
  
1. Download the the UBCD ISO
2. Burn the ISO using imgburn
3. Insert the CD that you just created into the defective computer and reboot
4. Upon reboot, continuously press F12 and boot from the ODD/CD-DVD
 
To burn the diagnostic software on a flashdrive, follow this guide
 
Note:
If you find any errors, you will need send the unit to Lenovo for service. Support phone list here.
 
For data backup, you can copy / paste your files on a USB flashdrive / hard drive or use this software to clone your hard drive. 
 
 
Hope this helps

I have been beating my head against the wall with this one.
Just got a Gateway E-9520T for a customer. We spent the last week configuring it, installing updates, etc--but it's pretty much vanilla Windows Server 2003 R2 32-bit with exchange 2003. We haven't installed any of their customer applications yet.

During the setup and testing we did everything from leaving it on at night, to shutting down over night, rebooting, etc...

A few days ago it suddenly started taking around 30 minutes to boot and 30 minutes to shutdown.

During the startup/shutdown the RAID array is going crazy. Tons of file access.
When starting up it performs POST correctly, starts booting Windows (2003 Server Logo, with the little scroll thing at the bottom), and then the screen flashes like it's about to switch to graphical mode. But it hangs there with a blank screen for 30ish minutes.

The morning this started we hadn't installed any new drivers, updates, applications, or anything. Just fired the box up.

Gateway thought it might have been the MegaRAID card, so they sent a new one. No change. MegaRAID says their latest firmware fixes an issue that sounds like this problem. Updated the MegaRAID firmware, and it's still taking forever to boot.

What I've done:
Waited forever for the system to come up, rollback driver updates for the RAID card. (no effect)
Booted off Gateway's recovery CD (at their request) and used it to reinstall the factory default drivers. (no effec... Read more

came home to see windows telling me it needs to reboot due to a recent update. upon reboot I noticed it was sitting there at the animated windows logo prior to the logon screen. the numlock led on the keyboard was stuck so I reset the computer with no change. I then tried safe mode with also no luck. I reset once more and did some googling for quick solutions and about 5 minutes later the computer goes to the logon screen. this is repeatable. i ran a chkdsk /r /f with no change. im not quite sure what to check from here but something is definitely wrong when I go from a 10 second start time to 5 minutes. any ideas?

Hello and welcome Kevin mate if you can get safe mode which I am assuming of course do a system restore to as far back as you like and then it is just a matter of installing updates until one finds the offender and then you just hide it so it doesn't bother you again. (Right click on it and pick Hide)

Hi there,
I have been having several errors- one being a Blue Screen Error (which has been occuring for probably over a year now, every so often) and another one occuring only on my other account on this computer (which says something along the lines of "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute.") right after logging in (after some programs have loaded). I never really bothered with resolving the Blue Screen Error because it wasn't that serious to me- though it was very annoying, but this new critical error when I log into my other account is REALLY frustrating to deal with. I am not new to computers and have quite a bit of knowledge about them, so don't worry about holding back any details or technical explanations, I'll probably understand most of it. Anyways, here is the problem report for the Blue Screen Error:

This error occurs every time I logon, and it happens only when my computers connected to the internet. So I can basically use it on safe and normal mode aslong as the internet is turned off. I do not have access to a Recovery CD or 5 days within the restore point before the problem existed.

I upgraded to Win 10 from 8.1, but got a Window's 10 Critical Error. I was able to uninstall Avast to get rid of that Critical Error message, but I am wondering if that error will return, so I am thinking of going back to 8.1 until things are figured out. If I go back to 8.1, will I be able to upgrade again to Windows 10 if I do it within the year?

Answer:Windows 10 critical error

I think a lot of 3rd party anti virus programs need to be updated and avast could be one of them. I was "trying" to use webroot with the TP and it caused all kinds of issues. I contacted webroot and was told they will not support W10 until it is officially released (which makes sense). Maybe avast is taking too long <shrug>

Hello,

This seems to be an common issue that even Microsoft has acknowledged. The super awesome critical error.

Every time I "accidentally" (oh cause apparently I can't press it anymore) press the windows button, I get the dreaded, critical error must sign out.
I cannot access the Microsoft App Store
I cannot use my calculator
I cannot use my start bar
I cannot use the search bar
My preferences are not saving such as, sort files by;, view files by tiles. Which is INSANELY annoying because I need to sort my files by modified dates and it always defaults back to "name". It started doing this only when the critical error happens. I am extremely worried about this as our entire office has gone to windows 10 this week.

This is an insane hindrance to my daily productivity. I did a FRESH install of windows 10 to have this happen 2 days later.

FYI, I am an advanced user and would like to hear from professional input. When I tried this, I got this error,

It seems like files are disappearing for no reason.

I am running Symantec End Point FYI, but people having problems even with this advanced of an anti virus.

However, whenever I try any of these options it gets just slightly past the Windows XP progress bar stage, when it suddenly cuts out and restarts, to which the same process occurs.I have tried removing all peripheral devices inc. PCI cards and Slave HDD's but this doesn't seem to eliminate the problem.I am toying between whether it is a software or hardware fault....?. I understand there have been similar problems with SP2?

New problem on my computer:

Noticed today that the Microsoft Security Essentials icon in my tray was red, as if the service was turned off, going to turn it back on I got a message saying something to the effect of 'the service cannot be detected on this computer', I went to the control panel and uninstalled the service, before going online to the Microsoft website and reinstalling. Soon after installing, I got one message saying that threats had been cleaned off the computer and then another saying that 2 threats had been quarantined. As this threat message pops up, I then get a window open telling me that Windows has encountered a critical error and will shut down in one minute.

This happens over and over, including in safe mode. I have Windows Vista 32 bit.

After booting my computer i get an error message "windows has encountered a cirtical error. windows will shut down in one minute". I think it is related to the Sirefef virus.

New problem on my computer:

Noticed today that the Microsoft Security Essentials icon in my tray was red, as if the service was turned off, going to turn it back on I got a message saying something to the effect of 'the service cannot be detected on this computer', I went to the control panel and uninstalled the service, before going online to the Microsoft website and reinstalling. Soon after installing, I got one message saying that threats had been cleaned off the computer and then another saying that 2 threats had been quarentined (the last time this popped up, I wrote down the threats that were quarentined, they were: Virus:win32/sirefef.R and Trojan:win32/sirefef.AH but I'm not sure if they've been the same every time). As this threat message pops up, I then get a window open telling me that Windows has encountered a critical error and will shut down in one minute.

This has happened 3 times, twice on regular startup and once more on Safe Mode with Networking.

In anticipation of being asked; I'm running Windows 7, 32-Bit version. Can anyone give me some help???

Hi, I am new here so please bare with me.

It seems that a few days ago Windows completed a "critical" update and since then when I boot the computer up I get the famous blue screen but when I start the computer in safe mode its fine but I have to restore the computer back to an earlier date. It runs fine after I've done this but when I shut the computer down and turn it back on the blue screen comes up again and I have to go through the same thing and go back to an earlier restore point.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this? Many thanks.

If you have any idea what could be wrong, you would make me very happy since this PC is very new. I would also like to add, that after running sfc /scannow, the system scan detected corrupt files but was unable to fix all of them (as it is saying). It also reports that details are included in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Should I upload this file also ?

Hello every one,
I am new here, so I have been using WIndows 8.1 since 2014 since I bought new Lenovo laptop which came with 8.1 preloaded. During 2015 when Windows launched 10, it was upgraded for FREE and since then I have been using Windows 10.

Till yesterday I really did not have had much problem, but today while I was working and browsing through Amazon to look for one of the product sudeenly I got a blue screen with message "Your PC ran out of problem and will be restarted, you can search for later "Critical Structure Error".

It then restarted and loaded everything is fine and as of now it is working just fine, what does the message impact to me? Should I do anything or just relax as it restarted properly.?

So confusing, it showed Critical Error and now working absolutely fine I so worried now. Please guide me if I should do anything to further check for any error or fix or to see whether it is fixed.?

At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line ( to avoid typo it's best to apply Copy/paste method)......

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

When it is done, check if you can open Start Menu.

Help! my laptop is only 4 months old, but around 2 weeks ago i keep getting the error message "windows has encountered a critical error and will automatically shut down in 1 minute". My laptop works when on safe mode but on normal mode, it encounters the abovementioned error message.

Around the same time that i have encountered this error, my McAfee anti-virus has been giving me the message that my computer is not protected. I always fix the error but everytime i restart the computer, the same message appears inspite of fixing it. As of this writing, i cannot use my laptop in the normal mode, as i get the abovementioned error message and the computer automatically shuts down.

my laptop, a Compaq Presario CQ50 has Windows Vista Home Premium. Is it an error connected to Windows Vista? McAfee? or has a virus or malware infected my computer?

Thank you.

Answer:windows has encountered a critical error and will shut down

Hi -

Yes, that message has its roots in Vista, but it is not Vista itself generating it. Some app in your system is causing the shutdown.exe command to be executed. If you are on a server, it may be the admin.

The shutdown command + McAfee going out tells me it probably is an infection of some type.

Given that your system is relatively new, I suggest that you re-install Vista and start fresh. Place the recovery Vista DVD in the drive or invoke the recovery partition (usually F10 key during boot-up) and re-install Vista. If you were to call Toshiba they would say the same.

Regards. . .

Please help me. During playing Sid Meier's Rail Road , my PC is suddenly restarted. After restart it shows "The system has recovered from a serious error." It is almost frequent now after a format. Before I played that game many times without any problem.
Error Report, produced by windows contain these signature:

BCCode:10000050 BCP1:E3A3A104 BCP2:00000000 BCP3:BF35CE85

My system information:

Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 3.0
GenuineIntel P4 Processor 2.66 GHz
ASUS mother board (P5GL-TMX)
40+160 GB HDD
512 MB DDR1 RAM
Intel 82915G/GV/910GL video card (128 MB)
DirectX version 9.0c

It is to be noted my PC was running very good before. After the formatting of HDD1 (40 GB), the problems begin. I used TuneUP Utilities 2011 and Smart Defrag 2.2 to ensure optimal performance for my PC. I also used ESET Smart Security 4.
 

Answer:Windows XP crashed showing critical error

Well the "TuneUP Utilities" most likely did you in.
They most of the time will do nothing but remove entries in the Registry that are needed, but the program does not think they are needed and your system get messed up.

Since you seem to know how to do a clean install I would do it again, and NOT run ANY program that will speed up this system. With a new build a defrag should not need to be done for a few days at least.

When will HP or Microsoft create a fix for this error? There are 236,000 posts about this on Microsoft Community. Yet no fix. "Windows 10 Critical Error Startup not working" I worked with the HP IT, the only workaround is creating a new account profile with administrative rights. Setting up that account then  copying your files to that account. It takes too much time for a temporary  fix. This has happened to me 3 times since I bought my computer 2 months ago and no one has a permanent fix! I can not keep creating new profile accounts, it take too long to copy files and set the account up. There are computers where this does not happen, I'm doing research and return my HP back to Best Buy, it is unusable.

Everything seems to be working fine but is REALLY more annoying than anything.

Hey folks.

This is an error I've been getting for a while. It's been intermittent for a long time and it slunk off again for about three weeks before returning with a vengeance, and it hasn't stopped.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium on Service Pack one.

Every time I boot up WMP, it loads up and then I immediately get a Critical Error (Windows Vista has encountered a critical error and will be shut down in one minute). I've been cruising the web looking for kindred souls suffering the same problem, and some of them seem to believe McAfee might be the problem. I moved away to college this year and I'm sitting behind a mandatory proxy that requires McAfee be installed at all times via the Internet Access Agreement I have with the college, so I can't get rid of it. I've installed all updates I can find, but nothing seems to put a dent in this error.

Does this mean I can never watch Pulp Fiction again?

(Edit: Yeah, okay, I can watch it in DivX but I'd still like to solve WMP!)

I installed service pack 1 and a few other updates last night on my dad's work computer. I think the computer somehow managed to power off last night before completing the update even though it was plugged in.

Now the computer can not boot windows because it get's stuck around update 300 and receives a fatal error.

I am trying to do system restore however I can't access it due to an administrator password on the laptop. I talked to their IT person and I still can't get the password to work.

My dad never made a recovery disk like I asked and doesn't have the Windows 7 Pro 32 bit disk so I can't access it that way. I only have a 7 Pro 64 bit disk and a 7 Home Premium 32/64 disk.

What other ways can I go about fixing the problem? It's critical it is fixed within the next 12-16 hours.

Answer:Critical error after Service Pack 1 Windows update

Try this first.
Boot into Safe Mode before Windows starts loading. F8 on many computers. Try a System Restore before update.


Their may be other options but this may get you working again.

In order to install windows for the first time on this refurbished machine, I have to choose "system restore" at boot.
It starts to go through the process of installing windows, then I get this message : "Windows Restore Critical Failure. This can be caused by a missing Windows image".
Anyone know how I can fix this. I cant get into windows, because I first have to install it using the system restore. So the only computer access I have, is when it boots up.

I have tried to contact Newegg...which is where I bought it, but no luck. All repairs and service is through the warranty company...cant get in touch with them either.

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks.

I wonder does everyone who has the Start Menu problem actually have dropbox installed as I do...

Answer:How to fix Windows 10 Critical error: Your start menu isn't working.

Dropbox is not the problem. I have dropbox on my computer and have no problems. My husband's computer does not have dropbox. His is the one with the critical error.

Hello,

Got a problem since a while and figured that maybe its time to post about it.
Few months back it started. Got into windows and right after the welcome screen, the screen would go black. Somestimes, it would get stuck like this forcing me to hard reboot. Other times, it would go to the desktop after the 2-3 second black screen and no problems. And yet other times, it would flash between desktop and black screen a few times.
During the rare occasions where it got stuck in the black screen, I would get a windows error message (critical error) on my next boot, which pointed to my graphics driver having a problem.
So I wiped that one off (and used a driver cleaner) and reinstalled it (even redownloaded it - its an old driver but the best driver for my card and of course directly from the manufacturer). However, this does not resolve the issue and the stuck/critical error only happens very rarely.

Some of the times I get the short flash of the black screen, I see some graphical distortions of my desktop afterwards as per image attached. The only way to get rid of those is to hide and then reshow my systray to clear the "artifact" (or just run an application that overwrites that space, i.e. any full screen application).
If the black screen happens while my Windows is still showing the Windows logon screen, I find that the welcome screen is semi imprinted onto my desktop and I would have to press F5 to see my desktop hidden behind it.

Note that this is a... Read more

My problem is very similar to this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic458953.html and here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic458990.html

Soon after installing MSE, I got one message saying that threats had been cleaned off the computer and then another saying that 2 threats had been quarentined. Now every time I try to start my computer I get a window open telling me that Windows has encountered a critical error and will shut down in one minute.

This has happened mutiple times, twice on regular startup and once more on Safe Mode with Networking.

In anticipation of being asked; I'm running Windows 7. Can anyone give me some help???

I can't run any of the scans as my computer will not stay on long enough.

I did dl and install first.exe and ran the scan which produced this log.

I installed win 10 on Sunday and today when trying to open the start menu got a critical error message and asked to log in again to resolve the issue. This seems to take me into a loop of logging out, back in and getting the critical error message. Any ideas on a fix?

Answer:Critical error message on start menu for windows 1

Keep starting and stopping the computer by holding in the start button. Eventually it will go into repair mode and it is up to you which one you want to try.
