Computer freeze up

Question: Computer freeze up

No recent hardware or software changes, but after 10-15 minutes or so the computer freezes... Can't do anything. I restart and same thing happens. It usually restarts fine, but once it didn't read a hard drive, I took it out and same problem. A couple times it started and froze while loading, but most of the time it freezes 10-15 minutes in. Swapped processor and RAM, and still the same problem. I also can't get it to finish a virus scan. Does it sound like a virus, or could that be a video card, or motherboard problem?Thanks,Hoop2077

Hey, i have a computer that i built. It has been freezing and restarting lateley. I did memtest, and THAT froze. I went out and purchased compatible high quality corsair RAM thinking that would solve my problem. THis failed, and my computer still freezes on memtest. When my computer does freeze it is usually during intense things like games or installing windows. When it freezes once, if I wait a bit, it helps, but if i immediateley start it up again then it freezes upon boot. This looked like a CPU problem, so when my computer froze i checked my temperature. That was way WITHIn the temperature limit, so my CPU is not overheating. I enabled "beeping" for my cpu temp and its voltage, and no beeping happens. However when i enable beeping for DDR voltage, my computer constantly beeps. Is this because of my power supply, motherboard or what? What should i do?? i dont understand what is going on!! ANY HELP APPRECIATED THANKS!!

Here are the specs of my computer:
Windows XP Home (SP2)
Intel Pentium 4 HT (3.06ghz, 2mb level 2 cache)
1 GB RAM (pc 4200, brand: pqi)
ABIT AL8 mother board
NVIDIA geforce 7600 gt
linksys wireless adapter
DVD read-write
150 gb hdd
350W power supply(i think...dont know how to check, it might be 400W but i doubt it)
ANTEC case

Answer:Computer FREEZE or restart/ Memtest FREEZE

I think you may need a stronger power supply, might wanna get another opinion on this though

Description:

if a program i run is freezing, the whole computer freezes to the point where i can't input anything except Alt-Control-Delete but if i chose "Task Manager" it does not open on the front, but i can see it on the taskbar, i can even see the vista sidebar ticking but i cannot contol anything that happens.

it only happens when a program enters an infinite loop (or becoming idle any other way)...
when i program, and my program freezes, i have to restart the computer (sometimes clicking log-off on the Alt-Control-Delete works, but sometimes it doesn't)
since i like to program, i can't restart the computer every time my program freezes, and it is a huge hassle to restart the pc every time my computer freezes

i already tried fixing the registry with tuneup registry scanner and i thought about system restore but it turns out i don't have any system restore points

Answer:Computer Freeze at every software freeze

Are you using a lot of resources? If you enable error reporting instead of a constant loop, it should give you an error message that you can post herehttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709644.aspx

like the title say the computer fan go nuts and the computer freeze right after, now illl try to explain what i did before it happend.
i just got a Geforce2 MX 400(AGP) for the computer, after installing it in my computer and clicking power, i notice blue lines going down my screen on computer startup and windows loading screen, after switching colors and resolution the lines were no more, still everything was working fine at the point(im guessing), then i went and downloaded the driver for the card(not sure if it was the PCI or AGP one) and they asked for a reboot, clicked i wanted to reboot later and i proceed to go in options and change resolution again, after switching resolution everything was still fine at that point, after opening internet and going on facebook my fan started to go crazy and computer froze, after rebooting again my computer rebooted by itself, now everytime i start the computer with the card in the fan go crazy and freeze the computer, the fan still turn and make loud noises even after freeze occur, i now removed the card and wont put it back unless i know what is making this thing go nuts.

Hi there,
I'm using Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 4700. Internet Explorer freezes up after 5-10 minutes of use - CTRL-ALT-DEL usually doesn't work - have to reboot. Recently, am unable to open c-drive, Control Panel or My Computer by double clicking. An error box comes up that says: Trial has Expired. You have exceeded your trial period. This evaluation version will no longer function. Please click on the "order button" to purchase your licensed version or the "Quit" button to exit.

Then it gives two options to click: ORDER and QUIT

When I click on Order to see what this is about, it takes me to a Paint Shop Pro page to order. I have an "ORIGINAL" version of Paint Shop Pro that I bought, so I don't know what this trial version is about.

I ran Norton 360 and it didn't catch any viruses. I ran Avast free version and it found some viruses which were fixed. I was unable to run either of these virus protection programs in safe mode so just ran them in normal mode.

I ran Malwarebyes in Safe Mode and it found various problems (Trojan Dropper, Trojan BHO, some Adware issues, etc.).

I'm still having problems. Please help. I'm a rookie user.

Thank you so much.
Mary

My computer has lock-ups every so often where I will have to manually re-boot.  Lately, in the past week or so I've noticed that when I boot my computer it works very hard (i can hear it working) but it takes 7-10 minutes until I can open and programs, internet, etc.   My desktop boots normal very quickly, I just can't access anything until the computer (works hard) for the 7-10 minutes.. then it seems to slow down or (catch up finally) and I can access stuff.    When I do have a computer freeze.. (few times a week) sometimes It will just freeze and sometimes it will freeze and a contant beep will sound.
 
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Question: Computer Freeze

When I am running my computer and I leave it to defrag or virus scan the whole computer freezes. The mouse stops moving and the only way to turn it of is hold the power switch.

I installed a program to increase and decrease the size of hard disk partitions and it made the computer not load some of the time. Some times it would load and others it would get stuck on the boot at the Detecting IDE drives. I managed to get it to log on and I got the BSOD. I then logged on and it took ages to load and I resored it to 3 days ago before I installed the Partition Manager. Then ever since it has been freezing.

Any Ideas.

Thanking In Advanced Jack.

Question: computer freeze

I use Dell Picture Studio to view my digital pictures. When I start a slide show my computer will freeze up. The only way to get it started again is to hold the power button in for about 8 seconds to shut it down. I can look at the pictures individually with no problem. I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it but that didn't help.

I also use Microsoft Streets and Trips 2002 and I have the same problem.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100, Windows XP upgraded from ME, 256 Meg ram, 32 Meg video card, 1000MHz processor.

Hiya

Lets try a general cleanup first

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?threadid=55214&highlight=Spider

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Question: Computer freeze

Hello everyone, 6 months ago I upgraded my PC, I bought a new video card, motherboard and a new case (I will post the specs bollow) and I have been having the same issue for the past 6 months and never solved it, I contacted many repair shops and they all ripped me off.

My computer randomly freeze when either watching videos on youtube, playing video games or when waking up the PC, There is no error or anything at all its just freeze and I have to hard restart the computer by pressing the power button.

the PC freeze most of the time when playing a video on youtube or making the video full screen but again, its "random" its can happen in 5 min like its can happen in 24 hours.

What I tried so far
I bought a new motherboard from a ASRock z77 Extrem3 to a Asus P8Z77-V LK

I did 2 memtest of 8 hours and I even bought new ram even though its wasn't necessary

Tried a different GPU, system still freeze with different gpu's

I tested my CPU with Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and no errors

I checked the heating and everything is normal.

Re-added thermal paste

did a prime95 test, everything passed

I changed my PSU from a 710W (I don't remember the brand) to a corsair CX750M

Removing my SSD no luck, I also updated its firmware

Removing my HDD still freezes

Also I updated the bios on both motherboards.

Answer:Computer freeze

Make and model of SSD and how old. Same for hard drive.
Everything you have done to test makes sense and while we don't like Corsair Cx series Psu much, a new one wouldn't be giving you trouble this soon I don't think.
The one thing you did not change is to try a new hard drive alone and that is where I would go next.

Question: Computer FREEZE

i have this weird problem with my pc, i hope you can help...
whenever i use the computer, it stops responding after a few minutes: mouse, keyboard, ctrl+alt+delete, it responds to nothing. even when i press the power button, which usually would make the computer log off and shut down (i use win xp) it doesn't do anything, its like the computer just freezes. I checked for viruses and spyware/adware and there's nothing out of the ordinary. I also left to cover off the case and tried to work with the pc that way, it worked the first time, but after I shut it down and turned it on again the next day the problem returned.
do you have any idea what might be causing the problem? is it more likely to be a hardware issue or something in the OS?

thanks a lot

Answer:Please Help! Computer Freeze!

Hello ismaouma and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

It appears that you are running 2 firewalls (EZTrust and ZoneAlarm). Both are good but running 2 firewalls can cause many problems. Both are trying to do the same thing and can conflict with each other. I would suggest keeping whichever one you want and uninstalling the other one. This may very well eliminate your connection issues.

As for XP not being genuine, if this is a legitimate copy of XP then you can contact Microsoft and they will assist you in fixing the problem. Their new notification system has had some reported problems where genuine copies have been flagged as non-genuine.

Cheers.

Answer:Computer freeze

Is this a laptop or desktop? Blow out all fans with compressed air. If a desktop, open the side and make sure no dust and fans are all spinning. Do you have any XP Service Packs installed? If not, update your system to SP3 and all other Windows Updates.

Answer:Computer Freeze

check the temperatures of your parts. you could use Speedfan, which i use, or some others which are listed somewhere here, i'm sure others can name em. and i'm surprised you only have 4gb ram with a 64bit version of W7. 32bit can support about 3.25gb of that.

hy,
just received my new comp and for my surprize i have problems with it.

processor: intel core2quad q9550
motherboard: msi p45 diamond
video : palit geforce gts 250 1g ddr3
memory : 6g dd3 1333 mhz,triple chanel from corsair
hdd: western digital caviar blue 640 gb(sata2)

i assembled it and i managed to install vista ultimate and the drivers .
After a while the computer just freezes,it happens most of the time when i use WoW with video details at max,but it happened when i was just copying some data from my old hdd to the new one.
i thought it was a vista bug so i installed win xp,there it freezed when i was intalling it.
i thought it would be the hdd so i used the old hard drive.I entered the xp already installed there,i installed the new drivers,i went a bit on internet,and when i wanted to play WoW with full details freez.
at the beginning it freezed in vista while using the green genie from msi.I would have insta freez when activating gamer mode from it (i guess it sets the settings from hardware like oc),got rid off green genie but the problems from vista i mentioned at the beginning still remained.
Now i'm using my comp for an hour or so and no freez.(just using the new hdd without copying anything,just internet surf and writing here).
just got a freeze and a message from bios: cmos checksum bad.

Question: Computer freeze

During the past two weeks, my computer would occasionally freeze up and I would have to reboot. My scheduled Symantec scan would stop scanning, but the elapsed time continued. Now my computer will no longer start up except in the safe mode. Each time I attempt to reboot normally, I get to the desktop and receive a message that my Symantec virus definitions are not there. Then the screen freezes up and I get a brief blue screen message which I don't have time to look at before the computer tries to restart. I tried a system restore and now I no longer have any restore points. Also, I tried to reinstall the Symantec software, only to get an error message that "The windows installer service could not be accessed."

The Symantec version that I have is a corporate version 11.0 and I was able to go to the Symantec website last night and download the most current virus definitions and it appeared to update on my computer. I also went to the Symantec website and downloaded both FixDwndp and FixXrupter and ran them with clean results. My scheduled virus scan ran in the safe mode, but shows a message that my File System Auto Protect is not working properly and that my protection definitions may be damaged or my installation may be corrupt.

Here is my HJT log that I ran tonight (in the Safe Mode). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Problem:

My computer seems to be freezing randomly. Very randomly. It freezes “whenever it feels like it”. It doesn’t give any error messages or any information or unhandled exceptions, it just stops functioning, and my screen stays the same. Nothing, at all, happens. The screen totally freezes, and I cannot control anything, move the mouse, and if I am playing any games, it freezes and the sound skips. At least if I had some sort of error messages I could look further into it. But I don’t. I recently installed the 3 software/hardware shown below under the “Recently installed” section. These freezes started at about the time that these items were installed. Now, I’ve tried removing the hard drive, even though it shouldn’t have a connection with the rest of the computer, but it still has the freezes without it. I doubt that it is the Java 2 Runtime Environment. So, I believe it might be the fan. Is it possible that its pulses make my computer freeze or perhaps rattle the motherboard or graphics card or audio card on that side of the case? I will try removing it and seeing if I still receive these problems…what do you guys think? Help me out, please. I have a unique situation.

The other one i can understand:

Question: Computer freeze

A few days ago I was trying to copy a file to a usb drive and the computer froze. I couldn't access Task Manager and had to reboot to free everything up. Later when I tried to click on a game icon to open the program the computer froze up again and I had to reboot again. This has now happened several times over a few days. I have tried to find a solution but at at my wits end. I even tried system restore, but found there was nothing to restore, although I had created restore points in the past. I even tried installing an image of the system and other files, but that didn't work. Although I know a little about computers I am a novice at these sorts of problems.

the best way of unfreezing it is to turn it off and on again. without the help of professionals there is nothing you can do.

If you are starting fresh, be sure to wipe out the hard drive completely. I recommend using a 3rd party program to ensure you are erasing all data off the hard drive. A link to DBAN is available in my signature.

**Please note -- If you have other existing partitions that have crucial data that you do not want erased, do not run DBAN.

Question: Computer freeze

Hi everybody, here's my problem:
I used to get the BSOD with no hardware or software changes, so I then did a factory restore thinking I picked up a virus, now I no longer get it but the computer freezes up at night, every night, but not during the day. Occasionally it will tell me Windows (completely up to date) recovered from an unexpected shutdown and direct me to the minidump files, which I have attached here. In addition, anytime I run a graphics-intensive program like a video editor/renderer (After Effects CS6, Powerdirector 11) or try to render a 3D model image (Cienma 4d R15) the computer will crash a minute or two into the render. I have a sad integrated "video card" that has the latest drivers and the programs are up to date but everything rendered fine and worked well before the whole BSOD thing and factory restore. Windows updates do not install automatically I have it set to download and then notify me. The computer was set to shut down automatically upon a system failure but it didn't shut down, just froze. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Hi all,

I hope somebody can assist, for the past month i've noticed that while i have been on my computer either working on word or browsing the internet(which alot of time is on) my PC freezes with no errors or prompts appearing on the screen. When this happens i am unable to move my mouse or press any keys on the keyboard. What i do after this is reboot my machine and then continue to do what i'm doing, mostly launch my browser to continue surfing the web. After this reboot it would suddenly freeze again, showing no errors or prompts to indicate what is wrong. Naturally i reboot the PC the second time but the system freeze will usualy occure perhaps 20-30 minutes after or not at all.

To troubleshoot, i've reinstalled Windows(though not the windows updates) and reinstalled the latest drivers for my graphics card and motherboard. I also installed MS Office 2010 and installed my Norton Internet Securitiy. ... Read more

I'm sorry, but we cannot help you with that version of Windows (& Office) installed.

I agree with you that your issue seems to be hardware related, but with a cracked copy of Windows, one never knows.

Non-Genuine Widows can do some strange things.

Reduced Functionality mode --> Description of the behavior of reduced functionality mode in Windows Vista

Office activation/ reduced functionality --> Description of the Office Activation Wizard

If you really want to truly test out your hardware with a good OS, place the SSD ONLY in the system; wipe it with KillDisk -

Format HDD (low level format) - KillDisk - Sysnative Forums

Then install this 90-day Windows 7 Enterprise trial version - Try Windows 7 Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center

Forego Norton; use MSE - Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

If you need further help, please create a new thread; please don't have any cracked software on your system. :)

Honestly, (1) you'll never know if you truly have a system problem; (2) if you do -- whether the cracked OS is involved or not; (3) get help from any decent forum with a cracked OS, especially this one.

I must now close this thread.

Hi,

We can take a look for malware- first we use Hijackthis and later another scan if need be.

please do these things:

go to Click here to download HJTinstall.exe
Click the blue "Download the Hijackthis Installer" link
Save HJTinstall.exe to your desktop. DO NOT just press run from the website
Double click on the HJTinstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.

Currently have an ongoing issue with my computer just freezing up and having to restart it to get it running again. Have changed graphics card, ram and recently sent it away to get the motherboard/processor checked and they said it was the ram. New ram fitted under warranty and 1 1/2 hrs later same fault, rebooted 20mins later same fault. Please help as very tired of work mounting up and unable to do it!

Answer:Computer freeze

There could be anyone of a dozen things causing thisWhat OS are you running - if XP have you tried system restore?have you run any diagnostic checks on your Hard drive?At around the time the problem started had you loaded any programs or installed any hardware?Have you tried reinstalling your OS?A myriad of things could cause this - much more detail required if you want meaningful diagnosis

Question: Computer Freeze

Hi there,

My computer freezes shortly after starting in normal mode, is ok in safe mode. I looked at couple of sites etc and used some malware programs to scan & delete viruses etc (main one used being Malwarebytes) - all of this had to be done while using safe-mode as nothing works in normal mode due to freeze. My OS is Windows XP - lookin to see if there is anything that can be done or is it a lost cause?

regards
ShaneMc
 

Answer:Computer Freeze

I have moved your thread to the malware section.

Please follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.
READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide

Notes:
If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode. You can running steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools on another PC and burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.

Hi!
I don't think it's very important, since I have not received any answer to this post, nevertheless I want to tell you it's close. The problem was due to "Daemon", a virtual DVD player, and mainly to SPTD.sys.
After I deleted them I have not gotten this freeze anymore

I suspect something wrong with my computer. When I run a full

Any suggestions.
 

Answer:Computer Freeze

Googling quickly that dll file...looks like the file is from Symantec (that develops Norton). Not sure if that is the reason but having Norton and Mcafee on the same system is not a good idea.

Do you have Norton and Mcafee on the system?

Just my 2 cents

Hi.Hope someone can help! I have an Acer laptop with Empowering Technology and when I do a virus sweep and the sweep gets to the Empowering Technology files it crashes/freezes up!
I have tried to copy the Empowering Technology to an external drive so that it is off my computer but if you open the program and try to copy it crashes.
When I first got the computer I made recovery backup on to 2 disks but don't know how to use them!! I have read that they will format my C: drive and I don't really want to do that!
Any help would be great.
 

Answer:Help please! Computer Freeze!!!

This is the first I had heard of Empowing Technology, so I Googled it and it appears to be an Acer program built into their machines. That being the case, your best alternative is to contact Acer support. Click here for a web page for Acer support. You might also look at your users manual for toll free contact numbers fro Acer support.

What virus scanner are you using? compatibility may be the basic problem.

Mp computer freezes up 5 min after desk top is opened, I cant even shut it down with the ctrl/ alt and delete button held down will only work in safe mode and turns off after it freezes with the power button.
 

Answer:computer freeze up

If it doesn't freeze in Safe Mode (can't be sure that's what you are saying as your long sentence is confusing) then it's probably something you recently installed which Windows does not like and which falls into one of these categories:

Device driver
Third-party Firewall
Antivirus software
CD-burning software

Whichever of those was recently installed (or was the last thing to be installed) needs to be uninstalled whilst Windows is in Safe Mode. Then don't re-install that item if Windows starts normally after that.

Hi Everyone,
I'm currently running a four monitor screen set-up. Recently my main computer screen started freezing on me. It would work all day and then the computer screen would freeze on two of the four screens. The page would get blurry, and you could barely make out what you were looking at. The pointer mouse when going from screen to screen would only work on two of the screens instead of all four. I unplugged the power on those two screens and then plugged them back in. I switched the different jacks to see if it was those two particular monitors or those two particular jacks on the computer. I did a Malwarebytes test, and Avast test, RKill followed by ADWCleaner, and nothing negative came back. Right now my computer is running fine, but pretty soon it will freeze and I'll have to reboot. It now takes about 6 reboots before it begins working in the morning. Each reboot allows me to get a little further. It takes one or two to get to where Windows will even load the entire way, before I'm able to get on the internet... Read more

My Dell Inspiron 6000 recently started to freeze. I turned it off manually and then when i tried turning it back on the noise came on, the green lights went on but no visual display and within 5 seconds everything is gone. After about 15 or so attempts it comes back on but usually freezes again within a few minutes. I haven't added any new hardware and rebooted the cpu but the problem is still persisting. I had a problem recently in that the power adaptor was broken and while it could keep the computer powered it didn't recharge the battery. I only mention this because often plugging the computer into another power adaptor will make it come on instantly, however it usually stalls againAny help would be very much appreciated

Answer:computer freeze every few second

It would be nice to be able to see your System Specs.

There are many reasons why a PC " behaves" this way.

These annoying " gliches" may be caused by an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, Malware, running 2 AV 's, unnecessary data, Browser addons or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background etc....

What follows is a series of generic troubleshooting steps that you may care to try...

*Make sure all intake/exhausts vents are clean along with all fans.
Get some temp monitoring software for cpu, gpu.

* It could be a hard drive that is going bad or corrupted.
To check a hard drive See Check Disk...
The How-To Geek Guide to Using Check Disk in Windows 7 or Vista - How-To Geek

* In an administrators account type cmd in search.
In cmd type sfc /scannow.
This will report and fix minor problems.
Take note of what is said at the end.
Should your computer freeze, try to do the tests in safe mode.

* Go to search, type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers.

*Type event viewer, in search (by start button) > Windows Logs > Application
Look for RED critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the CURRENT problem.
Note the event ID, and the source codes and Google search them.

* If overclocking, restore to original.

* Try in safe mode; report back if it works properly.
Start your computer in safe mode

*Clean boot. You may discover what is causing your problem.

Answer:computer freeze

Hi trebor193,You probably have some malware on your system, or more specifically your log on or user account. I personally don't like the idea of disabling all sartups thru msconfig--if you have an always on connection (Dsl, cable,etc.) when you reboot you'll be on the net without any antivirus or other protection and it only takes a few minutes to get infested that way. It would be better to leave your security apps running and disable startups one by one til you find the culprit.Actually there are much quicker ways. HijackThis is, in a way the ultimate startup manager. Malware, and some legit items, finds several ways to start that won't appear in MSCONFIG. Follow the instructions in this tutorial to get a log posted:How to post a HijackThis LogWe can usually pinpoint what the problem is fairly quickly this way.Or if you like, you can open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and click on the processes tab. What seems to be taking up the most CPU and memory (besides system idle process)? Now click the performance tab--is the CPU maxed out?

Answer:computer freeze

Puzzled Lady
There may be two possiblities.
One being corrupt .dll files in ie explorer.
Try this first.... goto
start/settings/control panel/add-remove programs
scroll down to internet explorer and hit remove.
A box should appear that gives you an option to repair.
Select repair.
Reboot your system and try again.
If that windows prompts you to download a Japanese patch
click cancel and proceed.
See if that fixes the problem.
Two would be a possible problem with the patch if you downloaded the first time you went to a Japanese site.
That would take a little bit more digging to check that out and I have to leave for work now.

Hi guys... if anyone can help me it'd be GREAT!!!!!!

so 2 days ago, my computer randomly shut down and restarted on me. so i was like "wtf was that?" then ever since that time my computer would randomly freeze. i have to press the power button to shut it off because ctrl+alt+delete wont work. first i thought it was overheating so i took my case off and cleaned out my computer from dust and such. then i realized that my PSU fan wasnt working. it has 2 fans but only 1 of them is working. but it didnt feel hot to the touch. the one that's working is the one that's "inside" the computer and the one that's not working is the one right next to the power cord.

im not sure what's causing the random freezes. i ran malwarebyte and avg several times and nothing unusual came up. when i say randomly freeze it would sometimes last less than 10 mins after start up or sometimes happen after an hour.
a few times earlier, when it froze it would make a loud beeeeeeeeep sound until i restarted it. but now it doesnt make any sound it just freezes. i have no idea what's causing it so... i need help.

when it freezes, i can still move the mouse and i can click on desktop icons and open them. but i cant get the task bar on bottom to show up and right clicking would show the options but nothing would work when i click. when i open stuff on desktop, the window it self would freeze. kinda hard to explain clearly.

Answer:computer freeze

Hiya

Can you do the following for me:

Download OTL to your Desktop

Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time and post them in your topic
--------

Please download GMER (only for use on 32-bit operating systems) from: http://gmer.net/index.php

Click on the "Download EXE" button and save the randomly named .exe file to your desktop.

Note: You must uninstall any CD Emulation programs that you have before running GMER as they can cause conflicts and give false results.

Double click the GMER .exe file on your desktop to run the tool and it will automatically do a quick scan.

If the tool warns of rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan, click on No and make sure the following are unchecked on the right-hand side:

IAT/EAT
Any drive letter other than the primary system drive (which is generally C).

Click the Scan button and when the scan is finished, click Save and save the log in Notepad with the name ark.txt to your desktop.

Note: It's important that all other windows be closed and that you don't touch the mouse or do anything with the... Read more

Question: Computer freeze

I don't know what is going on but every so often my computer will randomly freeze up. It would sometimes completely freeze up and then i have to hold down the power button to restart. Sometimes it would freeze for 10 seconds then go back to normal for a good 2 seconds then freeze again. I went through my event log and found this. This event would repeat itself every couple of seconds sometimes 2 or 3 times in the same second. The description for Event ID ( 5005 ) in Source ( NETw4x32 ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: , Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN.Any help would be great!

Answer:Computer freeze

that is a driver file not found and its related to the wireless connection inside of windows. One suggestion is to use the wireless software that came with you wireless device (if you added wireless and it came with a connection/drivers disk)You have the option to use windows or a software program from the wireless vendor to control wireless connection.next you have the option to download the file to fix it and hopefully continue as you have in the past. Please check this link for info on how......http://www.runscanner.net/filelibrary/NETw4x32.sys.html

Question: Computer Freeze

Computer freezes several times a day especially when unattended. The stats are below - I thought the problem might be the hard drive so I changed out the 320 gig to a 500 gig - no change, same problem. It also takes quite awhile to start up and I watch the start up items very closely so there are not that many. I have never had a virus or malware problem with it and I run Malwarebytes and all other recommended programs and keep it extremely clean and defragged. Also, occasionally it will not start up - it just sits there with a desktop picture - the mouse arrow will work but nothing else does - I then have to push the power button to have it re-start. Otherwise the computer works great and quickly - so aside from this annoying problem - I don't know what to do?? I've been living with it for awhile - but there has to be a solution??

OS: Windows XP Pro - Service Pack 3
CPU: 2500 MHz
System Memory: 2 gigs
CPU Name: AMD Athlon(tm) 7550 Dual-Core Processor
Bios: Award 3-20-09
Disk Drive: 500 gigs (just changed from 320)
Video Adapter: Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE nforce 430 (512 MB)

Answer:Computer Freeze

Do you have enough power? What's the wattage on the power supply? Also, lots of cooling I hope? Made sure everything is well seated and connected securely? You probably have, but it never hurts to check.

Since about 2 months ago, my computer has started freezing often.
It usually happens when trying to run a movie file or use my webcam or anything of the sort.
My computer just completely seizes up and i am forced to restart. Could my ram have gone crappy or something?
Any help is appreciated , thank you
 

Answer:Computer freeze-ups

I would suggest you check your HD for fragmented files and if needed run a defragmenter as high levels of fragmentation may be a reason for your mentioned problems.

I just realized I can not open my CS2 PHotoshop on my new computer. I tried to rip a CD and was not successful - now my mouse has serious delays and the computer freezes - a little at a time but more and more frequently.

I did not buy some of the suggested optimizer programs from Tiger Direct and wonder if I should now. I wuold greatly appreciat ANY help and suggestions.

I am tempted to download a program from the sponsor of this webiste but would like some advice.

I did already switch mouses - it is not just the mouse. It took forever to type this due to the mouse not reacting right.

Question: computer freeze

Most of the time the computer works fine. Every so often the computer will freeze. The only way to regain control is to restart it with the power or restart button. I am pretty sure i know why this happens but i would like a second opinion. A few weeks ago, this same computer was having restart problems. The problem was traced back to a faulty motherboard. Well, i took all the hardware except the motherboard and put it onto a new compatable motherboard. The computer runs fine except the occasional freeze. Is this most likely from not having the same motherboard. It use to be an asrock board and now it is an intel board.

Like i said, im almost pos this is what is causing this but would like a second or third opinion.

it might be your psu.

I have a Microsoft Windows XP Media center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2. Recently within the last couple days it has been freezing up unexpectedly. I can sign on fine and browse for about 5 to 10 minutes then boom I'm locked up. I cannot slam down from the tower, I have to turn off my surge protector then refire it to log back on. I have tried to be aware of some kind of pattern so I might be able to tell whats causing this, but so far nothing. Please help, I have a home business to run and this is most annoying when I am in the middle of booking a flight,freeze up and loose everything upon shut down. Thank you

Answer:Computer Freeze

Hello, greeneyes802. to Bleeping Computer.com!Thank you for providing such complete information in your initial posting. It makes diagnosis of the issue far easier I do, however, want to gather some more [email protected] can ignore the following:@Mods: I am using Deckard to help diagnose this issue (mainly to see event logs), not for malware removal, as I know well I'm supposed to not do. @greeneyes802, you can pay attention from here:Please download Deckard's System Scanner and save it to your desktop.Double click the downloaded file on your desktop.DSS will produce two logs on completion, a Main.txt (Will be maximized) and an Extra.txt (Will be minimized).Please include both logs in your next post.Hope we can get well on our way to fixing this ;)Billy3
