Preferred Solution: "The page failed to load" Control Panel\System and Security\System

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.)

Hi

When I right click My Computer on Vista Start menu the page says "The page failed to load"

I enclose a screenshot of the error.

I was also get "the application has failed to start because WINBRAND.dll was not found" when running

SystemPropertiesAdvanced

From RUN

This has now been fixed by downloading WINBRAND.dll and copying it to c:\windows\system32

But "The page failed to load" still happens when right clicking My Computer and choosing properties.

I did a SFC / Scannow and something weird happened. The Command Window had an error (apologies - forgot to note which but will rerun in a moment) however the CBS Log File showed no errors and indicated SFC ran successfully.

I will post the results of SFC in a few moments

Thanks for your help.

A few weeks ago a techie friend tidied up my Vista laptop. Coincidentally a few days later, when I switched on my desktop (windows7) all my documents had disappeared. I reinstalled from a backup.
I do think this must be a coincidence.
However I now find that after working on the desktop for a while, clicking Start and then Control Panel or Computer result in a explorer.exe "System Failled Call" window appearing.
Restarting clears this but it happens again.
I have scanned with AVG & windows defender and also used the microsoft system scan tool. Nothing untoward showed up.
Attempted a system restore but no luck as it wouldn't work.
I ran Task manager, killed explorer.exe, went back into task manager, new task and typed "explorer.exe". This has worked for the moment.
Finally each time I close down I get the message programs are still running tho' none are listed. My only option is to force closedown. I feel these problems are all related.

Incidentally, when another user logged in their closedown was clean.
Very confused. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Clicking Start, Control panel/computer results in "System Call Failed"

I first would create a new Restore Point. Then I would go to MSCONFIG via WinKey--R and either disable some startup items or select Diagnostic Startup. If these stop the problem then focus on what is enabled in a full boot - including non-MS services on the Services tab of MSCONFIG.

I have been searching for the causes of this problem. when I right-click on my desktop it says "administrator disabled the display control panel." Also, by the clock on this computer it used to read "Virus Alert!" so I'm positive there is/was some type of infection. I ran Mcafee On Demand Virus scan and it found 17 problems and either cleaned/deleted them but the computer is still acting weird. Here is the Hijackthis log:

the title says it all
on every attempt to bring system window from control panel or right clicking my computer explorer.exe crashes, problem is no minidump is created to include, and i do have it enabled from "sysdm.cpl\advanced\startup" so any suggestions ?
p.s : not really sure if dump files are created with normal crashes and no bsod , so if there is another way to trouble shoot this thing please indicate .

Answer:Explorer crash on running "control panel\system" no minidump created

Hello Nightmayor and welcome to Sevenforums.

Explorer Crashing

Here are some tips and tricks you could try troubleshooting the kind of problems you're experiencing.
Having crashes upon the .explorer usually reveals problems in the Windows Context Menu. I'd suggest you to download a software called ShellExView. The idea of ShellExView is to figure out, what shell extension is causing your explorer to crash.Use the software with this procedure- Disable one extension that doesn't belong to Microsoft. In many cases there are running 3rd party shell extension along Windows, and may cause the crash. If the crash persist, undo the selection, and proceed to the next non-Microsoft extension. Keep doing so, until you've found the culprit.

Download Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes will investigate malware and worm targets, and try to remove them. It's very handy in that manner.Run a full scan of it twice or more. In many cases it won't detect malware in the first shot.

To ensure Windows isn't broken, we'll recommend the sfc /scannow command.Here's how- Press Start | search 'cmd' | Right-click it
| open as Admin | type SFC /SCANNOW

SFC /scannow

If the steps didn't work, Create a new User Account on your system. The current user account you're using, may be broken and corrupted.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

I'm not sure exactly how to fix this issue, some help would be widely appreciated. I used this site to help get rid of the BuyNSave adware, and now this new problem has accidentally risen after getting rid of the extension. It seems like Windows 8 had removed the audio files, mistaking them for a virus, either after an update or after restarting the system to fix my BuyNSave issue. I would appreciate help as soon as possible. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this so it can be bumped if need be.
 

Answer:"Audio service is not running" Error, Control Panel Does not Open, System Restore Doesn't Work

Update: After some research, it seems that the solution to my problem would have been to find the quarantined files from the audio and add them back in. However, I had been told to uninstall AVG as it had been giving me issues. So now I don't have the files to restore to my computer. Knowing this, what can I do to help restore these files back to the computer? Please help me as soon as possible, I really need help with this.

My m-in-l's computer crashed so I brought it to my house to reinstall everything for her. I am almost to the point of setting it back up at her house, but I am still having a couple of problems. I've searched and searched for all three but nothing has worked yet, so I thought I would post on here.

I noticed a yellow circle with a "!" in the middle of the yellow circle under device manager of her Display adapters/Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". In the system tray it says "Found New Hardware ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series". So I went to Gateway website to get the specific drivers for my M-in-law's GT5222e Os XP and their was a chip driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series so I downloaded it & extracted the files into Cabs like the instructions said to and now I am getting the error message

"Severe - Setup was unable to complete the installation. Try to set up your display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup."

So I closed that window and a new window popped up saying:

"The ATI Control Panel failed to initialize because no ATI driver is installed, or ATI driver is not working properly. The ATI Control Panel will now exit."

Any suggestions would be appreciated to how & where do I fix this.

My Windows 7 Professional "Explorer" tree (not Internet Explorer) no longer lists my CD/DVD ROM DRIVE under the Device Manager/Drives. It used to.

I've checked the System Registry and it has lots of info about that ATAPI drive, but my system fails to find the "cdrom" driver (which is the one Windows 7 uses by default). It's not a 3rd-party driver.

The tray on my CD/DVD drive opens and closes properly. Windows just won't recognize the drive, so I can't use it.

Hello everyone,

My system freezes occasionally and I get the informative "system failed CPU test" message. I also hear an annoying beep which is probably coming from the cpu fan but I am not sure about that. I think my computer is quite old, so it might be the case that the CPU is dead but I hope there's still a way to fix it.

Of course the first thing I did in order to solve the problem was searching in the manual of the motherboard to find some information about the above-mentioned informative message. ASUS suggest that I should check the CPU if it's properly installed. I removed the CPU, heat sink and fan firstly. After that, I cleaned the cooling paste from the CPU and heatsink, added cooling paste to the CPU and I assembled all the parts onto the motherboard.

I also tried to find out more about the minidump-files generated by Windows, but I couldn't find anything interesting.

If anyone could help me fixing the system freezes and the other above-mentioned problems, I would be glad to hearing a solution.

Thanks in advance.

Got "Page Failed to Load" error attempting to change my Win7-64bit display resolution.
This used to work, but no more ( don't know what might have caused it)

I ran "sfc /scannow". SFC reported that there were corrupted files that could not be repaired or replaced and to look at CBS.log. I did but can make no sense out of it.

Please find that file attached -- Any help will be appreciated.....

Answer:"Page Failed to Load" error attempting to change my Win7-64bit display

Run the system file check again. Sometimes it requires multiple runs. Reboot after each run (or before the first run if you have not rebooted since the last time you ran the check).Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

As of the last week, have been experiencing issues with extreme slowness. Reset Firefox to defaults, did not help. PC slows/freezes, when tried to launch task manager, CTRL-ALT-DEL, get message "Failed to load security options" then screen stays black with only that message. At times never unfreezes. After a hard re-boot, goes straight to recovery mode. I have noticed that there are certain error messages such as failed updates. And also, my security defaults have been "turned off" at least once without my doing......... Yikes! I have done a recovery to previous date, and that has helped, but then it starts all over again.... Certain start up items dont load and then the freeze comes again. And again the "Failed to load security options".....

I have searched to see if this was asked before without any success. Maybe someone has run into this problem before.
When I open "my computer" or "control panel" after I close it...it automatically goes into Internet Explorer as a blank page. Most of the time, when I close the IE blank page...it stops responding and I have the control-alt-delete to "end the program"
Thanks in advance for any help.
 

Answer:closing "my computer" or "Control Panel" open internet explorer window

Possibly malware - anything openning ie on its own raises an alarm in my books. Post a HJT log to the malware removal section of the forum and let the experts take a look at it

I've had the System Integrity Scan Wizard, PC-Antispyware, and Security System Protection Control Panel popups. They've been very stubborn but after reading some of the posts here and running Spybot, Adaware, SmitfraudFix, Panda Activescan, Housecall, Stinger Avert, Windows Defender, and SDFix, I am now getting only one popup, which shows up as a blank white rectangle in the center of the screen (and now I can't click "Close" to get it off the screen, since the "Close" option is missing). From the size & shape, I believe it's the Security System Protection Control Panel. Would you please review my HijackThis log? Also, in some of the posts I've noticed recommendations to update Java. Is that needed in my case?

Answer:System Integrity Scan Wizard, Security System Protection Control Panel

The blank popup appeared to be repopulated with information over time...apparently the spyware refreshed itself. I also learned from Task Manager that all of my popups were from the System Integrity Scan Wizard. After some more searching, I found the name (in my case, yzqrqzkp.exe) and told Norton Firewall to block it from accessing the internet. I used HijackThis to fix it and then deleted it and a namesake (YZQRQZKP.EXE-1253B76A.pf) from Windows\Prefetch (not sure that was necessary but deleted it anyway). My only concern is that from what I read, there should have been another copy in \Local Settings\Application Data, which I didn't find. I updated Java per instructions in another post, also turned System Restore off and on. I think the PC is now clean, but would you review my latest HijackThis log to be sure?

Since I have a clean installation of Windows 7, it no longer shows me my Acer specs in Control Panel\System and Security\System, can I get it back some how? Something to do with my drivers not being signed? Or something?

Answer:Control Panel\System and Security\System BIOS Version\Model?

A clean install wipes out any manufacturer installed software that contains your computer information. (The same thing happened when I did a clean install on my Sony Vaio.) Unless you still have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive (or recovery disks) that can return your Acer to original factory specs, I'm not aware of anything that can get that data to show up on the System dialog box. However, there are free 3rd party utilities like Speccy that can provide all the Acer data and then some, like real time monitoring of temperatures, hardware serial numbers, etc.

My PC is infected with 3 malware popups named Security System Proctection Control Panel, System Integrity Scan Wizard and Security System Warning (the last one telling me I have Abebot). I have tried to get rid of them with Kaspersky Antit-Virus, Adaware, spyware sweeper, and SpybotSD, but they are still running. I didn't run the online scan by Kaspersky because I have the most recent version installed and running on my PC. When I ran a rootkit scan with KAV, it took just over four hours and reported my PC was clean. So for whatever reason Kaspersky is not picking up these three forms of malware.

I thought I was computer savvy until this problem came up. When I double click my computer, recycle bin, control panel, etc, the hourglass comes up for a few seconds, goes off, and nothing else. No error messages or anything, just nothing. I have viewed a few of the threads covering this and a common link was the hijack this result. I have posted that here, and really hope that someone can help me with this. I have run SpyBotSD and adaware, I have run mutiple virus scans, I did a SFC, and the final thing was to repair windows using the original disk, none of which has help. I am running Window XP w/SP2. Any other suggestions would be certainly appreciated. Hope to here from someone soon. MTCS, out.

Hello everyone,

I've run into an issue that I can't seem to find answer to on the net.

When I open My Computer, Control Panel or any folder no files or directories display, after first there is a green loading bar on the address bar and little magnifying glasses (searching icon) on the left side directories but never displays anything.

The files I can see in other folders are unable to be opened and have white blank page icons next to them.

I can still run application so I'm not sure what the issue is. I ran a scan for virus with nothing found and I have also ran a windows update but have not restarted my PC yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.

Please try to run as much of the below as possible and get me as many of the requested logs as possible too. Since you cannot run in safe mode, just do all steps in normal mode and ignore the requests to boot in safe mode.

Please follow our standard cleaning procedures which are necessary for us to provide you support. Also there are steps included for installing, running, and posting HijackThis logs as attachments.
Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support
Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below link to properly use HijackThis and attach a log:

Make sure you also rename HijackThis.exe as suggested in the procedures. Use analyse.exe for the new name. This is very important due to some new infections going around.

I have setup a HP Stream 13 notebook, and upgraded from Win8 to Win10. Everything worked fine until today when the "RUN" and "CONTROL PANEL" start screen Tiles no longer function; tried 'Run as Administrator' from the pop-up menu with no success.

* Windows boot screen displayed ~ 1 minute
* screen goes black. Can move mouse. Drive light constantly on, not blinking. ~ 5 minutes
* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute

* Error message pop up "failed to connect to System event notification service"
* Have to wait for about 5 more minutes before computer is actually usable
* The audio service does not work as well...
from when I press the power button to when I can actually use my computer takes 10 - 15 minutes.

Here is what I have tried so far
*Turning off all start up programs / services
*Tested Memory - passed
*Hard Drive Self Test ---- # 1 - 7 fail / I am guessing that this is the source of the problem, however my computer does still work once everything is finally booted. So I don't know what to do with that information or if that test even matters.

Answer:Windows failed to conect to " system event notification service"

This seems to be a common problem, I am now also experiencing the same.
I have Win 7 Home Premium 64. Did chkdsk /r, defragged, tried sfc/scannow scanned for viruses and even tried reseting winsock.
My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.
It takes a long time to boot and then says "failed to connect to System event notification service"

One search on google will show this is a major problem, so why does MS not come out with a fix.
This seems to be the biggest frustration with Win 7 compared to XP, lack of support from MS.

Computer previously worked. On boot, monitor appears to receive no signal, and the asus talkback/speach report feature loops the phrase "system failed memory test". What are possible sources for this problem?

I havent had a chance to troubleshoot it yet, but find it suprising i received that error because I've ran and passed memtest many times in the last few m onths, although i guess its posssible it somehow croaked last 2 or 3 weeks sometime? Last time it was on Comp was acting weird. IE Explorer windows would keep hanging, and when i minimized programs the image stayed up on screen even after ctrl alt del to end them. I updated anti virus and full scan that passed fine so i turned off computer, and woke up to this, ironicly also friday the 13th lol.

Answer:on boot, no monitor signal, "system failed memory test"

I would start with the following:
[NOTE:] When clearing CMOS, remove power, and press power button to discharge motherboard.

1) Clear CMOS. If it boots, then go into CMOS and load setup defaults
2) Remove all cables and extra PCI cards. Only run Power Sup., Vid card, Proc., Memory, MoBo. Clear CMOS. If powers, add one card/cable at a time and see where it stops. If it doesn't power, proceed to step 3.
3) Place the mem. chip in another slot. Test. If more than one stick, try one at a time in different slots.
4) Try different Vid card.
5) Try separate power supply
6) Check Proc. (Too much thermal grease, smoke smell, cracked edges)
7) Remove MoBo from case. Look for burn marks. If you know what you are doing, try running step 2 without the case to see if it posts.

Did I miss anything? Please add if you think of anything.

The system is a real "old faithful" to the previous owner who is trustworthy. He has had it running with 2-3 monitors before (though 15-17") and sold as a fully reliable system.

When I try to boot about 19/20 times I get the "system failed CPU test" audibly through speakers (note not through PC speaker) before even the monitors have been recognised - within about 7 seconds of the fans whirring up.

So I gave it back to the guy who sold it to me to sort it out and he reported about 90 successful boots, said he has "benchmarked the hell out of it" and tried it with 1,2 and 3 monitors as below:

*Plugged in and turned on with one monitor in the VGA port on the dual head radeon AGP card - no problems at all, everything perfect
*Checked device manager - all drivers present and updated
*Restarted 15 times in a row - no problems again
*Shut down and rebooted 10 times - no problems

No problems so far so I resat the CPU, both graphic cards and double checked all connections were firm. To check whether the system has any problems when there is an actual load on the CPU and ram with data flowing all around the s... Read more

48 hours ago, after boot up, an error message was received 'Configuration system failed to utilize'
After clicking 'continue' button on the message window the message disappears and the computer can be used normally without any problems.
I have not downloaded any new progs in the time period but just in case a new prog previously installed had become corrupted I uninstalled the last two programmes that I installed over the past two weeks, but error persists.
I ran the crap cleaner registry cleaner but error persists.
I ran both Malwarebytes and Super Anti Spyware - just in case of malware but error persists.
I did think of doing a system restore but as you know during sys restore the computer shuts down/starts and it may cause problems as it might not restart until the continue button, mentioned above, is pushed, but this may be hidden.
Help appreciated.
many thanks.
Keith.

Hello, all.

Just a quick question, but is there any way to remove the line of text saying "Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch Input is available for this Display" from the System page in Control Panel?

All 3 of my machines have this text, and none of them use any touch devices, so I'd like to remove the message, if possible.

I once read about a registry value that can be edited to change Support info, and that made me wonder if this line of text can be hidden.

Thanks,

I don't believe so... The System page is just there to show information for your system. There is no registry setting or 'hack' for the standard System display page.

Hey, So go to visit the parents and get stuck with the computer troubles.

They suddenly started losing mass amounts of hard drive space. I did the malware sweeps, and things seem more or less okay there.

I found thisthread and asked my dad, and yes, they'd had trouble with backups only half completing.

I found some in Norton, which I was able to remove, that gave back 7 gigs or so but I can't seem to gain full access to System Volume Information. I went into Properties of the folder and added my dad's user (administrator) but while it lets me give him permissions, it pops up saying that permission could not be granted for each of the half-backup files.

I have gone into Services and Volume Shadow Copy, and turned it off, and tried deleting, and I tried turning it back on and deleting, and turning it off, rebooting and deleting, and turning it back on and rebooting and deleting. I am never granted access to delete these files.

I ran Space Monger and there's about 26 gigs that it can't analyze.

What am I missing? and Thanks in Advance
 

Answer:Gaining control of "System Volume Information"

Maybe toggle System Restore... right click My Computer; click Properties; click System Restore; check the little box to disable System Restore; restart the PC. Run a full cleaning using several different cleaners like CCleaner and CleanUp and maybe some others found in this section. Then run a full defrag (I like QuickSys ). When you're all done, go back to System Restore and uncheck the box. Disabling System Restore purges all the restore points and system snapshots.

Good luck!

SoudMax Digital Audio Speakers
Asus Motherboard though I can't be sure of what number it is, it should have been one of the newest ones at the time I bought it last September
4 fans
Alright, so I wake up this morning and my speakers are continually looping "System Failed CPU Test." I can mute the system, but that doesn't work...the only way to stop it is to unplug my speakers from the back of my computer.

I've read other people who have this problem with one major difference. My computer is still fully functional. I can see my screen and type and use is just as if nothing was wrong. *knocks on wood.* It COULD be that it just hasn't gotten to that point yet...but others have said that it started with a crash. All of my fans are running, as the SelectTech guy suggested I check. So I'm stumped.

How do I get my speakers to shut up?

Hello,
I've been getting this message "CPU fan has failed. System will automatically shut down" since yesterday on my HP Pavillion a1101n when I start up my computer. I've Googled this problem and found out that by pressing f2 and f11, when I see the message on the screen before it disappears, will solve the problem. I've done so and my computer exited the message screen and I was able to view my desktop. My computer stayed in this state with full functionality for about 10 minutes before automatically shutting down. I then turned my computer on again, and the message was still there. My CPU fan is still working, but making weird noises. Is there a way I can fix this problem or is buying a new CPU fan my only option?

Thank you =)
 

Answer:"CPU fan has failed. System will automatically shutdown" message

What did the google searches tell you about the fix , apart from hitting the F keys ? i.e. are you intentionally ignoring a genuine system warning or is it reported as a BIOS error in the posts you found ? It sounds like the former so either clean out the fans if accessible or replace them ( a good clean is as effective and a lot cheaper and easier than replacement) - unless the overheating is being caused by a faulty component .
If it does happen to be the latter (doubtful given that your system still closes down after a short time) update your BIOS as HP should have cottoned on that there is an issue and sorted a fix for it .

Hello,

I hope this is the correct sub-forum.

I have a family member with an issue that I cannot solve my googling the problem.

The family member tried to upgrade their windows 7 to windows 10. Something went wrong (apparently - I was not there) and it restored to Windows 7. Now one of their other hard drives appears to be completely empty (931gb of 931gb free) and it was renamed to "system reserved". The drive letters has been switched with the dvd-drive.

Is there any way to move the system reserved part to the c:\ drive where it belongs and save the data?

Thank you

Answer:Upgrade from Win 7 -> Win10 failed. Now other HD "system reserved"

All you have to do is set the C partition Active and run startup repair until windows boots again.

There is no moving of the system reserved partition, you are simply writing the system files to the C partition so windows will boot again, but as I have said, the C partition HAS to be marked Active in order to do that. It can easily be done with a partition Wizard Boot CD and a System Repair Disc, also known a Startup repair disc, made on any Windows 7 machine of the same bit version, 32 or 64 bit and of the same Service Pack version, hopefully your Windows version was Service Pack 1.

It can also be marked Active using Diskpart with your install DVD or aforementioned System repair disc.

Method 2

Partition - Mark as Active

For some time now my graphics card has been a bit dodgy. 1 out of 10 times it refused to start, and the monitor remained black. I point out the graphics card as the scape goat because the fan on the card was totally silent and not still - the card didn't seem to start.

This went on for some time. About one week ago (christmas eve) the pc just wouldn't boot, all fans would start (including the one on the graphics card) but the monitor remained black, like it didn't get a signal. Because of my earlier experience with my graphics card I once again blamed it for being the source of error. I let the PC be, and didn't start to fiddle with it (being crhistmas and all). I tried to start my computer the day after and as a gift from santa himself it worked and started on first try!

To avoid having further "bad surprises" I soon after decided to return the card to the shop where I bought it, not for being broken, but for fearing it would be sooner or later.

The support team at the shop were a bit sceptic as I explained my worries to them. They gave me a hint though that i maybe had a bit too low power in my sıstem (350W), and that this might be the reason why my pc acted the way it did, and that it maybe only made it look like it was the graphics card. But they agreed on taking it in on a test anyway.

Nothing wrong was found with the card according to them and I got it back yesterday and put it in again.
It didn't work.

Plugged out everything except the two power-cords to the MOBO and the CPU and CPU fan. The message was stil there.Click to expand...

Have you tried resetting your CMOS?

I'd say if you have a new power supply, and if you strip down to just the mobo and CPU/heatsink as you outline above you can rule just about everything out.

I'd recommend taking the motherboard out of the case actually, and then wiring the PSU to the motherboard (put it on a box beside the case or something), connect case's audio jacks so you can hear the error messages. It is possible that your motherboard is shorting on the case somewhere (and might cause the CPU test to fail).

If you still get the same message, my guess is your motherboard (not your CPU) will need replacing.

After purchasing another year of System Mechanic I was unable to re-activate. The previous version had expired a few months before downloading the newer version. The first attempt to re-activate with the new "activation key" triggered a window that requested that I purchase a discounted version. There was no provision to enter the new "re-activation key". I then tried uninstalling the old version, re-installed the newer version then proceeded to "re-activate". The same frustrating window appeared requesting that I purchase a new version. Attempts to contact iOLO has been ignored. Any suggestions?

Hi
I am having a problem with my PC. I have had it for about 3 years now and of late it had been really running slow. a couple of weeks ago i got a message "System Failed CPU test" during the post. I should note here that I have an ASUS P4S8X motherboard that had a voice post instead of the regular beeps. I consulted my manual for the motherboard and it suggested that 1) the CPU was not seated properly. 2) There was no CPU in the machine. Since the computer had been working I knew there was a cpu there, since the computer had not moved in like 4 months I figured that it was seated properly.
I went out and got myself another CPU and just got it installed. When Ii powered up my computer again it gave me the same voice error message. "system failed CPU test." Any other ideas what might be causing the error?
Thanks for any help.

Without thinking, I accidentally hit yes instead of cancel and now my machine is infected with spyware. When the computer starts, a program called "System Security" pops up that appears to do a system scan and finds 38 trojans and spyware. Since I have never heard of "System Security" before, I am almost positive that I have been infected and that the "System Security" software is in fact part of the malware itself.

I ran HijackThis v2.0.2 after startup and this is the log that resulted. I did not kill any of the processes that I believe to be malware and have not yet run any antispyware software such as Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware. I have physically disconnected my machine from the network.

My specs are in the signature below. A couple of months ago, my 'puter would act funny when I turned it on. I could hear the hard drive whirring, but the monitor would not come on and my mobo was telling me system failed cpu test. I would turn it on several times, then almost by magic it would work after the fourth or fifth time. I've stripped the thing down, took off the heat sink, reseated the chip after cleaning the surface, reapplying my arctic, and putting the sink back on. I had changed nothing to my system when it started happening. I'd guess my mobo is about 18 months old, same with the Pentium 4 chip.

I'm wondering why it's happening intermittently. Is it a chip issue, a mobo issue, PSU, or something else? I'm stumped. Need some advice.

Do you know what master/slave mean when it comes to hard disks? Also, that it actually matters which plug goes where when you use a 80-wire IDE cable?

I have tried to run some things, like SS&D and Tea Timer but it would not load (processes are showing). Also iexplorer.exe seems to have been loaded too though it;s not on the screen.

Log of the HJT report is included. Note that the domain name in the O17s were change for security reasons.

Also in that log I only had 1 Internet Explorer window open, and though it says S&D is running, it was not visable.

All of this was done in safe mode, loading windows normally results with explorer.exe freezing.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have been struggling with this issue for quite a while now, I googled a lot before but I'm unable to find a way to solve it, so I'm going to ask it here, hopefully someone can help me.
I'm using Windows 10 Version 1703 (OS Build: 15063.483) (latest as for today)

First time I noticed the issue was when I tried to run Powershell via Node.js (rebuilding node-gyp), Powershell crashed without any message, so I thought it was Powershell's issue, but when I tried to run it, I had the following message:



This picture shows "System.Transactions" failing, but any other software that requieres any System.X (such as System.Web or so) will fail to run correctly.

I have already tried by reinstalling .NET a few times, since that's the most logical way to fix it, but didn't work. Also when I Googled, 90% of the issues were in Visual Studio references, this issue doesn't only affect VS, but any Windows software, I have never worked with Visual Studio.

I assume your hard drive was formatted....

you will have to boot off your CD rom that has windows....

I went into the BIOS thinking i could fix it by going "Load Startup Defaults"

and now when it starts up it beeps and gives me this:


And nothing is working!

Windows starts up normally but there is no sound, no network connection and i can't do anything!

My mouse and keyboard isn't even working.

I can't even access the BIOS, or boot from cd. My computer is now pretty much a huge doorstop :(

Answer:Went to "load system defaults" in BIOS and now nothing is working.

Hi, looks like the CMOS got scrambled. You will need to open the tower and access the CMOS battery now there are usually jumpers that let you reset , however there is another way just take out the battery leave out for around 2 mins then put it back. This resets the BIOS to defaults and you should be OK. ( CMOS battery is a small silver disk around the size of a dime ). Make sure all power is OFF and you are on an anti static surface (wooden table is OK, anti static wrist band helps)

I am running Windows 10 Insider build 14332 and had issues setting up home group. After running the home group troubleshooter, my ethernet and wifi adaptors got renamed to "Ethernet 2" and "Wi-Fi 2" respectively.

Guys

I'm not sure if I've posted the right at the right place, but still........ I want to know that "" How do I change the "Open Settings" found in the Computer tab of the File Explorer to "Open Control Panel" ""

I have a screenshot of that:
I want to change it because I have a habit of having that "Open Control Panel" there as in Windows 8.1 for the reason that the Settings is just an app reference to the original Control Panel and many advanced settings are referred to Control Panel.

And I'm lazy to type "Co" everytime in Cortana to open Control Panel.

Awaiting for replies.....

Answer:How do I change "Open Settings" in Explorer to "Open Control Panel"

Welcome to TenForums @Preetkaran

We have a tutorial for that...
Show Control Panel or Settings on Win+X Menu in Windows 10

But I haven't bothered. Instead I found Control Panel in the Start menu's 'All apps > Windows system' and pinned it to Start. The advantage of having it pinned to Start is that a right-click on the tile shows a 'Recent' jumplist for it, all your frequently used Control Panel settings in one convenient place.

I am running windows xp. I have been infected with the fake alert "System Security" with lots of fake scanning popups. I've been trying to remove it but can't no matter what I try. Once the computer starts, all icons on the desktop disappear and the "system security" thing takes over. In addition to the system security problem, there are random popup advertisements for antivirus products and system scanning tools.

I've followed instructions found here to download process explorer, but "System Security" stops anything from running. Process Explorer won't run. Malwarebytes won't run. Task Manager won't run. msconfig won't run. services.msc won't run. Nothing works.

I've downloaded dds.scr and GMER, but neither runs unless I'm in safe mode. The attachments and logs here are from running in safe mode only.

It appears that someone may have installed combofix, as I see the file on the
computer.

I can only get things to work in safe mode.

I have not overclocked my pc, so I don't really know how to approach the problem. Anyone have any thoughts?

I have an AMD Athalon 64 processor, K8V SE Deluxe mobo, windows XP sp2.So I shut down the computer normally, and then when I go to turn it back on, it doesn't start. At all. I press the button a few more times, and notice that the fans are starting up a little, but nothing else is. So I rapidly press it many times, and it works. It was very weird, like I had to charge it up or some crazy thing like that. The monitor never goes on, and I start to hear a noise coming from the headphones. There is some lady saying "System failed CPU test" over and over again, non stop. So I ask some friends, and I was told that the processor may need to be dusted out. So I dust it out, and while doing so I noticed how extremely dirty the two fans on the power supply were. I gently unscrewed it and placed it a few inches aside to get a better angle to clean the fans with a Q-tip. I hook everything back up, and now it does not work at all. The fans dont budge one bit, nothing starts it up. I have checked all the cables, they are in their sockets properly. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could have happened, and what can be done?

I recently purchased a new BFG GeForce 7800GTX OC PCI-E 256MB video card, and an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ATX S939 NFORCE4 SLI DDR 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E 3PCI SATA RAID Sound GBLAN Motherboard to go along with it. I've been using it with no problems for the last 6 days or so. But yesterday morning I went to turn it on, and during POST the motherboard beeped and a voice over came over the speakers saying "System Failed VGA Test"; no display on the monitor. I let it go and i heard windows start up, so i have a hunch that my video card is defective, and that its not the motherboard. I tryed a CMOS reset and that didnt help. Made sure that the video card was in place properly - again no go. I began to look on the internet for solutions, and ended up with a bunch of dead ends. However last night I decided to try turning the computer on again for kicks, and oddly enough it started up with no problem. So i went to set up my BIOS settings again and it froze while i was doing so. So i restarted again and I am back to square one with the nice female voice over "System failed VGA test". Is anyone able to shed some light on my problem, or should would you reccomend packing up the vid card and sending it in for a replacement (under warrenty)?

Any Help would be great.

Thanks
 

Answer:"System Failed VGA Test"

Welcome to the forum

I think your psu may not be giving your card enough juice,do you know the name of your psu? and have you connected the pci-e extra power connector?If your psu doent have one you can buy an adaptor for only a few $ that will enable you to use a molex jack,although a new psu would be the prefrred option

I doubt its overheating in the few secs it takes to turn on your computer but it may be worth checking the vid card heatsink hasnt vibrated loose and is firmly attached,also check the fan is spinning on the card and the fan is still connected

Suddenly, when I was mucking about behind my system, my left speaker had this tinny little female voice saying alarmedly, "System Failed, CPU Down!" or at least that's what I thought. Popped back from under my desk, wiggled the mouse - yup, not working.

I rebooted, things are fine. A quick google suggests that what she was actually informing me is that "system failed cpu test" - something I thought I'd only hear on boot (I have an ASUS board with a voice post).

Why would that suddenly go off with no warning? MBM reported and reports board/cpu temps of 34/37 c respectively, so it hardly overheated.

Nothing else seems amiss, and I wasn't messing with cables or anything, just trying to install a fan cover that came with this case, that for some reason now refuses to install.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:"System failed cpu [test? down]"

You will just have to see what happens. It could be a failing CPU or motherboard. Another thing to check in BIOS would be your temperatures and the power supply voltages in harware monitor.

Hi everybody,

I've been having some issues with my system the past 2 days and am hoping somebody can help me with them.

My relevant system stats:
ASUS P4P800
Intel P4 2.8
GeForce 5700 Ultra

I left my system on all last week while I was gone on a trip to Vegas. When I returned yesterday morning, there was a notice saying some XP updates had installed and I needed to reboot. Before I could even move the mouse pointer to click the reboot button, the system rebooted itself. It then got about halfway through loading stuff in my taskbar before it rebooted itself again. This went on 2 or 3 more times and I finally just shut the damn thing off, figuring I'd deal with it after I got some sleep.

When I turned it back on in the morning, XP booted up just fine. However, about 10 minutes in, the screen output went crazy (random blocks and lines of color) and a voice started playing over my speakers but it was too low to hear what it was saying. I rebooted into safe mode and the same thing happened again, only this time the voice was loud and clear "System failed CPU test". I immediately shut down and reseated both the CPU and all cards in the system.

When I turned the computer back on I confirmed that all fans were working and not blocked by dust. It booted back up into XP and worked fine for a little while. I checked all the power supply voltages using ASUSProbe and they all checked out ok. Then all of a sudden the screen lost signal. It came back a ... Read more

I built my system in late July so these parts have been working fast and flawlessly since then, but recently after a restart I received this crazy lady saying "System Failed due to CPU overclocking". Nothing comes up at all, no BIOS, no windows screen, just this lady yelling. My system specs are:

ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Mobo
AMD 64 3400+
2 512 MB Corsair Extreme Memory Sticks
Radeon 128MB All-in-Wonder 9800 Pro
2 SATA Drives (36GB 10k, 80GB)
CD-RW Drive
DVD Drive

I have switched the memory slots like some other forums have suggested, and only received the lady yelling and repeating "CPU Failed System Test".

I have cleared the CMOS, I have used one memory stick, I have checked the CPU and it seems fine, I have done everything I could think to do, and I am stumped, and so is everyone else I know. I'm having trouble finding anything on this issue and ASUS is a waste of my time, so please-any help would be much appreciated.

OK so my computer was working fine. I open the case, take out the stick of memory, write some info down, put it back, close the case, start the computer up, and it doesn't boot. Nothing comes on the screen. All there is is a voice saying "System failed CPU test" over and over. This was about a couple months ago. Since then, I've tried booting with/without the video card/memory/drives, I've re-seated the CPU, tested the power supply, and still nothing. I also flipped the voltage switch on the back of the PSU. Since it can't be any sort of software/BIOS issue, it must be a hardware issue. I'm thinking it was ESD. And since I never even touched the CPU, it has to be the motherboard, right? Are there any other possibilities?

Here are some specs:
AUSU K8V SE Deluxe
Athlon 64 3200+ (754)
512MB Legacy DDR 3200
350 Watt PSU (no brand...)
nVidia GeForce3 Ti 200

As you can see, my video card is fairly old, so I'm thinking of just getting an ASUS K8N4-E Deluxe (has a PCI-e slot) and then upgrade to something like an x800xl.

Thanks for any input.

I'm looking to put in a home security camera system but the cameras have to be totally wireless (run on battery along with wifi to the receiver/unit). We live in a 1953 house so there isn't external power in the eve's and being able to run wiring through this place is like an act of congress so using wired cameras is a no go.

I'm not up on all the security camera tech so I'll just list what I'm after lol. Looking for a complete system and I would really like to stay under $500 ($300-$400 range makes me feel much better and I won't have to hear the "You paid what?")

There are so many different brands out and so many different varieties I don't know what to really pay attention to in the specs. Some have cameras that are 1080p but the unit is only 720p or some crazy stuff like that goes on. It's like some of these are just pieced together with left over parts.

I want the whole unit to be the same image quality unlike what I mentioned above. If the cameras are 1080p then I want it recording and displaying the same not some downgraded pixel trash. lol
6-8 outdoor weatherproof night vision (80-100'+ total darkness would be ideal) 1080P or better cameras

Hi,

I've tryed to do my homework reading early posts about this issue, but found no clear answer.

When I try to go to Task Manager, I get a message "Preparing Security Options" right before the blue screen with the menu were Task Manager access option is. Sometimes slower, other faster, but it's always there.

My question is: Is this normal with a really fresh an clean Win 10 Pro install and why? Does someone knows what's beyond the persistent fog that surrounds this never before answered question ( anywhere ) ?

Hi all,

I'm sorry to post again, but I've some problems....

Recently I've got a lot of pop-up ads for anti-spyware etc. I've got a flashing icon in my system tray that says I have all sorts of malware (which I think is malware), and I had these two icons added to my programs list "live safety center" and some security thing which I deleted. I've been getting a lot of norton alerts telling me that it's found and deleted certain viruses etc. I think largely it started with Virtumundo and I downloaded to Vundofix programs and ran them and they seemed to work except that I'm still infected and I have no idea how I keep getting infected. I've ran norton, spybot, AVG, cleaned all my prefetch, temp files, garbage files, cache etc using CCleaner, Clean Up! and ATF Cleaner. But it keeps coming back. I'm running spybot again now and I think it's found some more stuff. I'm posting my HJT log below.

Since my last post, where my IE was knocked out, I haven't been using IE but using Firefox instead, which is now my default browser. But the pop-ups still come up in IE windows.

Currently, I've run VundoFix and Vurtomondubegone, spybot, and AVG, and combined i thought I picked up whatever virus I had. My system looked clean and then I started up a again, and as soon as I loaded my homepage, another popup came on!!!

In short: there is a program installed, which doesn't show in installed programes, which scans my PC, saying I have spyware and wants to access things and install some antivirus programs, while changing my background.

I was browsing forums (not downloading and opening things!), when the classical red shield with white x appeared in my tray(next to time and volume settings), and every now and then a bubble appeared, saying my computer is infected and I have to install some official Windows protection. I did not click on it. Then a notice popped up, with the classical thud noise, saying I have to install official Windows spyware/malware removal program, so I clicked on storno and let my antivirus AVG run. When I returned, I was logged off. After logging on, my desktop background was changed - it was blue, with grey 1s and 0s, with huge white/red letteres upon it saying things like,

"Warning! You!re in danger! Your PC is infected! Secure yourself right now! For your boss, friends, children, wife....etc.". PLUS there was a new icon, apart from the shield in my tray - a black and yellow striped shield, upon which you can't right click, called System Security Version 4.52, which started upon logging in, and began scanning the PC, while saying I have at least 50 spyware/malware found.

Hello. I was here about a year and a half ago with a similar problem, and Chemist was incredibly helpful in fixing my computer right up. And so I'm back again (unfortunately), hoping that another great volunteer can help me once again.

I use Vista and I don't have access to a boot disk/windows install.

The problem is quite simple: any time I try to click on a link from google, I get redirected to some ad site. I also occasionally just get new tabs opening in my browser with similar ads.
The problem started today after Avira gave me a warning, then this System Security 2012 thing popped up talking about my computer being infected. Obviously this is the virus, so I tried to close it out, but it wouldn't let me open task manager, so I force-restarted the computer.
I tried to delete the System Security 2012 file, but that clearly didn't help, especially since I noticed in the logs that this file matches the location of the System Security 2012 on my computer:
