Preferred Solution: windows 7 freezing is cpu temperature involve

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

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

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

Answer: windows 7 freezing is cpu temperature involve

50c shouldnt be an issue, unless your bios is set to shut down at 50c, check your reliability and event monitors see if you have software issues at the same time as the shutdowns. as it happens in win7 and not xp it may be a a driver issue, also in control panel/system/advanced/startup and recovery uncheck automatically restart.i hate computers!but cant help myself....

hey there im paul. im new to this so be nice Ive been building pcs for 2 years now and this is a problem ive never encountered. i was on my pc last week and the file permissions on the second hard disk were messed up. I looked on the web for a solution and found it. It fixed the problem but after a reboot i found my operating system on my main hard disk was all messed up and i had to format. I reinstalled windows as normal but after the second reboot it came up with windows xp and that blue loading bar crap then the screen went black and after that it should come up with another screen saying "windows xp. please wait" but it didnt. it just hung on the black screen and the monitor light wasnt indicating standby. ive tried formatting with windows, writing zeros tio the disk with its own diagnostic tool but nothing works. Anyone have a clue what to do?

I have a couple problems here...
Problem 1;
My DVD-RW Litescribe will not work (Offical name is- LITE-ON DVDRW LG-20A1H).
It understands everything I tell it to (open, close, eject w/e). However... I put a blank disk in (tried cd+r/ cd-R & DVDs) and it tells me that there is 0 memory available and 0 used on the disk. now i know for a FACT that-they are empty. because I have used them on my laptop and am able to format them on there to be used. Ive even tried formating the disks via the laptop and try using them again on this (desktop) computer. Everything that should be-is plugged in & working. There are no problems identfied on it, however even my DVD writing programs all say that its either invalid-or that there is no disk.

Problem 2;
I recently connected an 80 Gig harddrive to my computer. Its been set as slave off of my 200 gb hard drive so i know it worked fine before hand. Now, The real/main drive is connected via another type of cord-rather than the one that is used to connect the dvd & 80gb hard drive.
*Motherboard*=====^(connects to hard drive)-----^(Connects to dvd writer).
Somewhat like that (sorry if you dont understand. i'll post a pic if needed). I recently attempted to reformat the 80gb drive. It was seperated into 2 partions. 1, a boot part for an older pc (formated just fine) & then part 2 (the actual files). 99% of the files part was erased correctly while 100% was erased correctlyon the boot part.

Hello everyone,

Alright, I think I am having some problems with my video card, and I need some opinions or suggestions on what I possibly can do.

Here is my problem:

I got home from my trip out of town today and came to find out that my monitor blacked out, nothing would show up, I hooked up two other monitors and the same result had happened so I know it was not a monitor problem cuz they all worked on my other PC's. Alright, so then I thought to myself it may be a video card problem, I took it out and put in my older card that I had before I purchased the one I have in it now and the screen showed up, I was very disappointed in that result. I had just bought this card recently and I don't want to admit that the card is faulty.

Other notes I want to add is that I noticed earlier that my monitor was turning pinkish and then back to normal sometimes. Also I checked if the card was secured in the slot and to no avail. So, is my card done for?

Here are my specs:

Motherboard: Biostar P4M80-M4 Socket 478
Processor: Intel Celeron D 350 3.20Ghz
RAM: 2GB Ultra DDR PC3200 400MHz (1 GB of each)
Video Card: eVGA GeForce 7800 GS CO 256MB
Diablo ATX Switching Power Supply 450W 115V/230V 10A/5A

Anything else you need let me know and I will provide in more detail

Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Issue that may involve Video Card

"So, is my card done for?"

That would be my guess

However the man on the telephone said they now have to wipe the HDD for any repair for data protection?? Have I misunderstood. I thought the idea is to protect data not destroy it? Being a novice it will take me ages to reinstate everything.

I have added the two files the log collector program gave me, though I'm not sure if these are what is wanted--I thought the reports would be more extensive. I will try to explain the problem briefly with the details that seem important and unique.

Frequent crashes in the last two weeks, sometimes with Blue Screen, sometimes only a black screen. When Win 10 displays Blue Screen, Internal_Power_Error may be shown. Who Crashed reports also amdxata.sys, the Stor Filter Driver as being involved, and usually ntoskrnl.exe.

Interesting is that few or no crashes have occurred during heavy usage--or any usage at all. They have been after user walked away and out of the room. But one at least before any power features like blanking the screen or requesting sleep came into play. No gaming is involved. But many Chrome user Tabs are generally open. Once or twice a blue screen has appeared, in one case on only one (the main) of two active monitors--other monitor retained image of the desktop, more often it is just two black screens, with the computer still running, never has a crash restarted the machine. In each case, the fans start to gear up after the crash, and the CPU gets very hot. Machine needs to be killed or reset. After restart, CPU cools down and fans slow down.

I am hoping for guidance on what to look for and test for. Who Crashed reports:

Some files that I found connected with this are: FNTCACHE, critical_warning.html, AVR09, winhelper.dll, and 41. I tried running DDS but to no success. Same with Rootkit Repealer. I managed to install and run Hitman Pro 3.5 and Malwares Bytes Antimalware, but both were stopped after a few seconds within scanning. Afterwards, they didn't work at all. Couldn't install Superantispyware or CCleaner. Spybot Search and Destroy was changed to read only and Ad-Aware wouldn't work. Any suggestions?

Hello,
Can anyone confirm by how many degrees the room temperature would increase in an office if there were to be an increased number of PC's and Monitors?
I am assuming that this will be dependant on the size of the office, the temperature of the computers and the number of staff in the office.
Does an equation exist to work out the increase in temperature?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

Answer:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

I have 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium on an HP Compaq CQ5210f. More system details at the bottom. This problem happened twice in mid April, and now twice again in early May, both within days of each other.

The only thing that remains consistent is that I'm playing a 3D game with audio on, the winamp program. Completely different games each and every time, though, some far more gentle on the video card than others. The screen would freeze up and so would the audio, and my keyboard/mouse don't respond at all. I resort to doing a hard reset with the computer power button.

Each time, when I log in again, explorer.exe is frozen. the taskbar appears, but nothing on the desktop, and after a couple seconds it all freezes up, with the busy mouse symbol when I highlight taskbar. I can still move mouse around though.

I can do ctrl+alt+delete at this point at least. Restarting explorer.exe doesn't work, so I try logging out in that menu, which does work, although slowly.

I've tried scanning for virus and also a system restore to earlier point, no difference.

The only solution so far has been to simply log in safe mode - which DOES work by the way - and create a new account from scratch.

Last time I cut/paste almost everything between old account and new, this time I will only do basics like save games and documents/music/video.

Can anyone please explain or help me understand why this is happening? I'd hate to have to keep restarting a new account... Read more

I have a new compaq 715 US that is running very very hot. I have read that xp controls the fan and trys to save power.

1) Is there a location that I can change the temperature settings for when the fan comes on?

2) The processor speed is also controlled by xp (Power Now) for AMD Athlon 1.2 ghz. Is there a way that I can set the processor speed lower to reduce heat? I noticed that when I run on the battery it runs at a slower processor speed and much cooler.

3) Is there a way that I can tell the processor temperature?

I am user Windows 10 AU 64 bit. Recantly I saw that my laptop has high temperature. My all drivers are up to date. I don't have any infection. Non so many programs and realy I don't know what's wrong.

any advice ?

Answer:Higher temperature in Windows 10 AU

Laptops (and desktops too) will often develop cooling issues in normal use, due to dust and fibres (commonly referred to as "lint") blocking the fins of the heat exchange device, and thus reducing the ability to cool the CPU & GPU effectively.

The usual advice is to use a can of compressed air to blow the airways clear of the debris that is blocking the flow of air.

A more effective longterm solution is to disassemble the laptop to access the cooling system, and using a small paintbrush, gently remove all dust and fibres, clean the cooling fans, and apply fresh thermal paste to processor and cooling system heat contact surfaces before reassembly.

Youtube often has videos of laptop disassembly for this purpose, or there may be downloadable service manuals for your model which will detail how to open the case to perform the operation.

Hi,
I am having strange problems with my desktop & laptop with W10 10240 installed.

I have a Toshiba Portege ultrabook with i5 2520m cpu, which usually ran at high temperatures under W8.1 consuming up to 55W. Now the temperature won't go above 80 degrees Celsius, which is also the point when the fan starts kicking in... Which means I now have a very quiet and eco-friendly (max 35W) laptop, which I don't like! Is there a way of disabling the CPU temp throttling? I have disabled Turboboost and changed from dynamic frequency to always high in BIOS with no luck.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this?

A similar problem is with my desktop with FX8320, which now achieves 6.500rpm @ 70?C with 50% cpu load!

And yes, I know, shorter lifespan, ecology and similar bs, but I just don't care about that, since it costs me too much of my time swearing over the slow performance... I would just like it to achieve 100?C again with full power!

Answer:CPU temperature limits in Windows 10

Check your BIOS for an option of CPU temperature monitoring and disable it. Also check advanced power options in Windows for processor power management, make sure max is is to 100%.

So I was uninstalling some bloatware from my computer, and decided to also do a disc cleanup. After I ran said cleanup, I restarted my computer so that all the uninstalled products would run there course, and the cleanup would take full effect.

Doing this, I ended up having multiple freezes at the "Configuring Windows Updates" I had to keep turning off the computer, and trying all sorts of stuff. In safe mode, it kept trying to configure there as well, and it eventually went through to the "Cleaning up do not turn off menu" it hung, so I restarted into safe mode again, and I finally booted to safe mode.

Thinking everything was probably good, I tried restarting again normally, and now am continuing to get a frozen computer at the "Windows is starting" logo. I have tried system restore and start up repair and keep getting a variety of errors.

If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. I plan on soon copy and pasting all my files to another computer and then moving them all back if I have to do a fresh install of Windows 7. Would like to avoid that however.

Hey, I have a problem and I thought of this forums, should anyone have a bit spare time to give advice on this topic:
I run windows 7, and I have Intel Core i7 2600K processor. At normal use, temperature on CPU is around 40-50 celsius. The problem is when I leave my pc idle, and come back later; say hour or two, Speccy shows temperatures over 80, 90. Sometimes pc has even rebooted itself to avoid damage done to processor. It makes me think that there is some hidden process(malware, etc) that uses so much resources, when idle that it causes temps go high. What would be the best way to determine this? Which programs launch, activate itself during idle?
Or is it that some program chances the pc fanspeed/etc settings in power saving mode?
I have tried cleaning pc with various antivirus/malware programs with no success. I read about bitcoin miners that could cause this

Answer:Windows 7, CPU temperature huge leap when in idle

Hi,

I have an AMD 955 CPU and ROG Crosshair III formula motherboard

When testing, I use both HWM Pro, AMD Overdrive and LCD Poster to watch out for the temps.

In both HWM Pro and LCD poster there is the CPU temperature showing.

I use AMD overdrive to look for Core temps...

The max temp is 62C...

Is that the max CPU temp or max CPU core temp???

While testing, Highest CPU temp was 53C (@3.8GHz, IntelBurn) and Core temp was 59C....

So which one shall I look out for?

Answer:Core temperature or CPU temperature?

''personally'' i watch the (CPU temp), the individual core temps fluctuate far too much for a constant temp reading.

There are numerous performance counters on Windows system. But one of the most important and critical performance counters of all is not currently implemented, yet: Temperature of CPU, system, graphic card and HDD.

Temperature of computer system is one of the most essential factors for monitoring stability of any computer system, be it server, personal computer, or embedded system. Most of the modern PC platform has array of sensors in it that monitors temperature of
CPU/core(s), motherboard, enclosure,  graphics card, power voltage, fan speed, etc. Even modern CPU itself ( like intel Core series and AMD Athlon's) has internal Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) register right on the chip.
But MS Windows ( as of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008) does not provide any consistent and working API or library support for utilizing such hardware monitoring sensors . This is big deficiency for modern operating system, considering
that MS Windows currently provides such a insignificant service like portable device API for external sensor (like temperature sensor and GPS).
User, admin or developer who wish to monitor such sensors has to rely upon third-party tools like
Hardware Sensors Monitor, SpeedFan, RealTemp, CoreTemp, CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro , or some GPU tools like
RivaTuner (for GPU hardware  monitoring) etc.
There are some WMI classes that seems to be intended to do such jobs like
WMI MSAcpi_ThermalZoneTemperature or Win32_TemperatureProbe
classes. But MSD... Read more

Microsoft Windows Search Indexer process its eating 10-15% of CPU and I think this is the reason why HDD temperature its always over 122?F (50?C).
I have disabled Cortana but no luck, hope someone has a fix for this or I will return to Windows 8.1
Edit: What I have tried so far
1. Turned off indexing on both partitions - restart
2. Disabled Windows Search from services - restart
3. After various restarts some how Microsoft Windows Search Indexer it's not showing in Task Manager, so half of the problem it's gone, but the HDD Temperature it's still above 122?F (50?C) with nothing running.
Any ideas ?
Solved by reinstalling Windows

why not try disable indexing for now and see if this calm your system or not ?
in explorer just go to your drive (c: or other), right click -> properties ... on bottom side you should see indexing ... uncheck it

So I've recently bought a gaming package which had pre picked pc products to be built for me, as I do not know much about computers. This came with windows 8.1 pre installed.

After having the pc for about a week it asked me if i wanted to upgrade to windows 10 for free, which i proceeded to do with no issues and it ran fine.

However, I went to shut my pc down and it only gave me the option to shut down and update, which was fine by me. It updated and the next two days my pc froze while i was on it, forcing me to turn it off via the power. But after it did that it would just turn on normally.

Now it has gotten to the stage where it freezes whenever it tries to start up windows and won't even boot up properly. It gets past the asus screen and begins loading windows and freezes. The longer i leave my computer the longer it gives me before it freezes once i turn it on. Every second boot failure it attempts to repair itself but even freezes when doing that. I know its the issue with windows as i can enter the bios settings when the asus logo comes up and I can edit the computer settings from there, just not the operating system. I've tried to boot via the installation disk but it even freezes then, which i think it may be because I have windows 10 and its a windows 8.1 disk, not sure.

ThinkPad T60 8741-4SU - High temperaturesHi i recently upgraded my pc, bought set of 4gb ram (2x2gb of kingston ram), at that time i was running on windows xp prof sp2 and everything was fine, temperature was ok, idle at ~45C, burn ~70C.. Since i changed my os to windows vista ultimate 64 bit, temperatures are extremely high, idle is around ~60C and if i try to run some stability test that uses both cores at 100%, the temperature gets to ~95C and then i rather quickly stop it, because i dont want it to raise more and do some serious damage..I dont have any lenovo software installed, i rather use the default stuff in windows - seems more user friendly so far.. So far i downloaded tpfancontrol to see if the fan is working properly and it seems it is, if i manually set it to max RPM, i can hear it, but the temperature is still about the same..The other thing i am worried about it is that my intel t7400 is supposed to have max voltage at 1.3V, but i often see in Everest monitoring software, 1.36, CPUID shows 1.363, which is more than is supposed to be there, i was trying to see, if something is messed up in BIOS, but there is nothing about voltage - nothing that i can found..My bios version is 1.03, windows vista ultimate 64bit - fully updated, outside temperature - the same, maybe even lower, laptop is sitting on the wodden desk.. Power setting at windows is set to Balanced, if i set the power saver- system is slow and with high performance the temperatures are running very high... Read more

Answer:ThinkPad T60 8741-4SU + windows vista 64bit // temperature problems

make sure your ventilation ducts are clean from dirt, Vista put lot more strain on every component of your laptop, so the temperature increase should be normal. Xp is lot less demanding on computer compoents, however it does sound like your heat ventilation fan and fins are clogged with dusts. So open up the laptop to clean away any dusts that maybe there.

I am running windows 7 on a refurbished hp envy 17, which I purchased about 4 months ago. The computer usually works really well; however recently I noticed that if I open a windows explorer window from within another program (ie - selecting download location of a file) the computer invariably slows down for about 15 seconds and then freezes. I don't have this problem when I open windows explorer by itself from the start menu or if I browse files from my desktop (via my computer).

I was wondering if anyone could offer me some guidance on how to figure out what is causing this.

Hi there, I wonder if someone could please help with a problem I am having with Windows 7.

Everything was stable and running well until only recently.

I have recently experienced repeated intrusion attempts, most of which seemed to have been successfully prevented by Norton, and I have also been receiving multiple zipped-up trojans each day via email (but these are always detected and quarantined with Norton). I called Norton tech support, and they assured me that Norton should be protecting me fine, that they could see no problems, and that the Norton software would let me know if there were. However, ever since these attacks begun, I have experienced the following problems with Windows 7.

- After start-up, sometimes only the task bar icons are active, and sometimes only the desktop icons are active. However, every now and then they both work at the same time, or are both frozen. This problem also reoccurs regularly while trying to use the PC; icons freezing, taskbar freezing, links freezing.

- Desktop icons have moved location and have become randomised. They can no longer be dropped, dragged or moved, and are permanently fixed. I tried changing this in the options, but the problem remains.

- Sometimes after opening a folder and/or a browser (Firefox or IE), for example, the folder window/browser freezes, and you cannot sele... Read more

HI Carla and welcome to the forum

I never take what a customer support operative says as gospel and especially not with tech issues, unless that are at least tier 3 or above support as they are generally the techs that deal with the nitty gritty of issues and are not reading from a script.

I would suggest as you do not wish to clean install Windows again and I agree with that stance for your reasons, and for that reason I would suggest running the below quoted text and posting in our Malware forum the logs as I would hazard a guess that you still have malware remaining on your PC that Norton cannot remove.

In general Anti-virus and malware apps are good but they cannot remove all of malware as many these days are like actual human viruses and morph per PC.





Please read and follow the following READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide and once finished please start a new thread in the Malware Forum plus a guide on how to attach the logs HOW TO: Attach Items To Your Post Click to expand...

You will find our malware experts are seriously good and if they find anything they will give you clear instructions on how to remove, if you are deemed malware free then please post back in this thread and if you still have issues we can then address them, but its worth making sure you are malware free first.

Answer:Windows XP does not read a burned DVD-RW disc without freezing in Windows Explorer

I'm not sure about how to fix this, but my advice would be not to use re-writeable discs anyway, especially as backups, I've found them problematic in the past.

I suggest using DVDR's (+ or - doesn't matter), ok they are only writeable once but they are more stable and they're a lot cheaper anyway (I buy 100 for ?15), and also you might consider an external HD for backing up.

In my experience RW discs are more hassle then they're worth

Hi there!
I have a usb soundcard which worked perfectly a while ago, but since some time this strange bug is causing trouble. Sound suddenly stops, and the VU meter in control panel stays at the same position - as if the sampling point of audio is stuck. Problem is
temporarily solved by disabling then re-enabling the soundcard.
I tried looking in the logbooks for relating events but I can't find any event which may cause this, as there is nothing happening at the same time as an audio freeze - or there must be a big delay of writing events to logbook.
I don't know what kind of data you need to help me solve this, but I'm happy to supply it!

Hi all,

Have been having some frustrating issues with my system recently. It all started when my system started freezing with strange patterns showing up on the monitor. I thought it must have been my video card and took it back to the computer shop to test it. They agreed the video card was faulty and sent it off for warranty. In the mean time I purchased a new low-end card and the system worked fine for about a week.

I then started to get the same issues again. I returned the system again and was told there was nothing wrong with this card. They spun some crap about the card not being powerful enough to run photoshop (which is where I spend most of my time) and convinced me to upgrade to a higher-end card, which I did.

Unfortunately, this didn't fix the problem and I continued to have problems. I returned the system yet again for a week or so. They tested it (with their HD and fresh install of vista) and said they didnt have any problems.

I picked the system up and used it without problems for around a week or so when the problems started to occur yet again. At the moment the system is freezing, freezing with a strange pattern on the screen (see attached jpgs) (looping audio), restarting, blue-screening (ecache.sys, IRQL not less or equal to, etc). It freezes during vista loading but sometimes makes it to the main OS environment.

I've tried reinstalling vista on a different drive and get exactly the same problems. It freezes and restarts during vista setup so... Read more

X230 Laptop, 8GB RAM, Intel Graphics 4000 series, SS180GB SSD.  Problem occurs with laptop in the Ultra Base Series 3 dock or out of it. - VGA or DisplayPort. Laptop came with Windows 7, was upgraded to Windows 8 and then Windows 8.1 and then the 8.1 update. Problem started when Windows 8.1 was initially installed. When connected to an external Monitor (HP ZR2240W or a Dell 2412Mb) with either display port or VGA (VGA on Dell only), Windows Explorer will stop working, open programs will show not responding. Mouse still functional, and if cursor is placed in the "taskbar" area, you will get a blue spinning circle. A double click of the mouse in that area will generally cause a relaunch of Windows Explorer (screen area goes blue, then repopulates with the icons) and things will work fine for a number of program launchs or switching between programs, then the problem will occur again. This will happen up to 20+ times per day. Laptop has the latest BIOS installed from Lenovo, Intel Graphics Driver 10.18.10.3621. Have tried three different keyboard and mouse options (Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, and a hard wired keyboard and mouse) and problem follows each. Today I reloaded Windows 8.1 with the most recent updates and problem continues. I feel that it might be a graphics adapter (Intel 4000) problem. Only solution there is a motherboard replacement. In multiple searches on the "net," I could not find anything... Read more

Hello there,

I am having some problems with the PC that was recently put together(November 2010). I have attached the all the DMP files so you can better understanding of the problems.

The problems only seem for now to happen when the PC has been left idle i.e. goes into sleep mode or is just sitting and not using any programs, if you are doing something, say playing a game it will not have any issues but if nothing is happening the below problems then surface:

? It resets on its own and you get that menu saying Windows did not shut down properly when it resets asking you to please choose from the following options, Windows in safe mode, normal load etc.
? Sometimes if it goes into sleep mode it gets stuck there and will actually need to be forced to turned off either by holding in the power button, switching the power switch off on the back of the case or turning off the power via the wall and when it has been turned on again it doesn?t start Windows normally but instead goes into resume mode and anything that you were working on before it went into sleep mode, will still be there but Windows doesn?t run as smoothly until you reset it via the Windows menu.
? There will also be a blue screen of death from time to time, which will show briefly before resetting and in this instance the computer will continue to go into a continuous reset before it even goes into the bios load screen, basically just turns on and off repeatedly. As with the previous example you need to ... Read more

Hello - I could do with some advice, I think.

Some basics first:

Dell Inspiron 1525 with 3GB RAM, running Vista

Recently I've had problems where my laptop has frozen during normal operation - nothing fancy, just surfing etc. It sometimes doesn't shut down properly either.

I have been using the radialpoint safecare software that Virgin Media supply in the UK as part of their broadband package. For a few months now the anti spy and anti virus s/w have failed to load, so I have relied on MSE. As I say, some problems have started to appear.

MSE told me that on 15/11/2010 i had a trojandownloader which was removed.

Some pals advised I would be better trying Malwarebytes or Avast. I tried the former and on scanning it stuck while looking at wklnhst.dat (something to do wth MS Works I think). I had to power off and on. It did a chkdsk which came up with a number of actions that looked like it was trying to fix something (sorry). I rand MBAM again and it got further then froze while looking at msvcr80.dll.

Power off/on again.

OK, then I tried avast, which seemed to get about 38% through then froze.
Power off/on again.

SOmeone suggested rkill would kill any trojan processes that might be causing a problem - t did knock off a couple of things (one by sun and another by ms). Malwarebytes again - crashed as before.

Struggling now!

Welcome any advice at all.

Cheers
Steve

Answer:Computer Freezing; Slowing Down. But mostly freezing. I have my HiJackThis! Log File.

I don't see anything in your log or your description of your problem to come to the conclusion that your problem is malware related. When there is malware present there will always be other internet related symptoms like popups or a browser hijack etc...

I will advise you to uninstall Microsoft Anti-Spyware as the version you have is very old and no longer supported. It in now called Windows Defender.

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Go through this now and see if it helps:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

You will be prompted to ... Read more

Hello, I'm having an issue with my computer.

My computer has started to restart/freeze up on me. The thing is, it has graphical issues once it freezes/tries to reboot. I get all these lines through the screen, graphical glitches when trying to go through the BIOS, etc. The computer isn't too slow, it isn't acting strange, the only thing that is wrong is the obvious freezing/restarting with graphical lines and glitches once it freezes.

My video card has been going out for a long time(I share a computer with a few people and they seem to think the video card is ok, but I have always seen small glitches in graphics here and there), so I am thinking maybe this might be a problem, given the graphical glitches, the horizontal lines going through the screen once it freezes.

When it hits the BIOS, it sometimes shows these same lines with the screen going mostly black.

System specs are:

CPU - Core 2 Duo, speed I don't remember.

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

I got this computer a few years back and I am not one to keep updated with specs or talk about them often, so I have forgotten the speed of the CPU and I do not know if I am missing information for you guys.

Solutions I have tried:

Overheating - I used air to filter out all dust/dirt that might be there to harm the computer, I have plenty of fans in there, etc.

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

Answer:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

If you're getting graphical 'glitches' while in bios, that's usually a good sign that your graphics card is having issues - however, I have seen this happen with faulty ram. I'd recommend reseating the cards (ensure your computer is off and unplugged whilst doing so) and see if that helps

Issue: Computer started freezing after a complete factory recovery.

Gateway GT5405E Refurbished
2.8 GHz Intel Pentium D Processor 820
2 Gigs of Ram
Vista Home Premium 32bit

Ok so the computer started freezing after a factory recovery I had Dualboot of Vista HP 32bit and Ubuntu 10.04. Well I decided I didn't want Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer anymore so I went to Google and downloaded EasyBCD to rewrite the bootloader. After the rewrite I restarted the computer let the computer load up restarted the computer and put in the recovery disc. I did a Factory Recovery as I said. Well after that I noticed I don't see Gateway Splash screen where it says hit F1 F2 or whatever to enter setup. Didn't really pay any attention to that so I'm on my computer after the recovery and went away to do something. I came back to my computer after how ever long and noticed the computer was frozen.

Answer:Freezing, White Screen, Idles Causing Freezing

I don't think this is a blue screen of death problem, but hey it sucks to have a broken computer. Defragment the computer. load any CDs that came with your hardware. Did u update everything? (drivers and anything else that can be updated, just for updating sake). And just to be thorough, did u install any other software before it started freezing? Make sure your hard drive is not completely full. Test the memory by running Windows Memory Diagnostic just by typing it into search. I've read where it was recommended to turn off any IM service as it lowers security and slows down the system. As well, make sure you don't have a lot of things running at once, and make sure you don't have too many items running at startup. Windows defender > tools > startup programs (do this before installing new anti-virus protection, as that turns defender off. If u need to, temporarily turn defender back on just to list the startup programs), and see if too many programs are loading early and if you even want them to load at all. too many currently running and startup programs can slow down your system.

Check if you have a virus. If you don't have an anti-virus, recommend Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes. Check and make sure device manager does not list any non-updated drivers. If your computer cannot handle some aspects of vista like its theme, high display settings, and windows features that take up a lot of resources, turn as much as you can off so that they do not slow yo...

Hello

Wondering if anybody can help with a windows 10 issue

My pc has been working fine for weeks now
Suddenly, over the last few days its developed an issue that seems to be getting progressively worse

Basically, all the desktop and taskbar icons keep freezing up so I cannot click on anything
Even when starting up and choosing an account, this seems to stop working
The only way I can get to another account is by tabbing through and pressing return

Once I am in, I was able to click on one application to launch it
After doing this, again all the taskbar and desktop icons stop working
I say was as I cannot even launch a single app now

What I can do is press ctrl, alt, delete and start task manager
Once this has started, the icons work again
But, again, once I've launch something they stop working until I launch task manager again
Also, when in something like Word, the ability to click on literally anything stops after a while - again, task manager fixes this

I've also noticed that if I go into something like chrome or IE, it seems to work but if I leave it for a few seconds it automatically goes back to the previous screen or, if I am scrolling down a page it will suddenly take me back to the top
As of today, IE now seems to have stopped altogether
It launches but then closes almost immediately

No success

Hello,
I'm hoping for a bit of help and advice on this issue before I go taking anything apart or delving into the insides of my laptop or taking it to a repair shop.
When I turn the laptop on I get the Acer screen and then the top left quarter of the screen goes black and the whole thing freezes (see the attachment). However when I plug the laptop into my TV screen via HDMI it's absolutely fine and starts up no problem. Even when I take the cable out once it has started up it works fine on just the laptop screen but it's something about the start-up that makes it freeze. I also shut it down, unplugged the HDMI and started it up again on just the laptop and it worked fine again so really confused about what is going on.
Has anyone come across something like this before? I've attached my computer specs below too.

I apologize if this is in the wrong section, but it doesn't seem to be a virus or malware issue. About a month ago, I began having problems with Firefox and Windows Explorer giving me 'Not Responding' issues. It is so bad that it is not worth even turning on my laptop most of the time. Normally, I would restore my OS to about a week earlier, but Windows 8.1 apparently removed that functionality. Does anyone else have this issue? Please let me know if I need to post this in another section. I ran my NIS and Malwarebytes but they both came up clean. (BTW - of course my browser gave me 'Not Responding' half way through this!)

İ upgraded windows 8.1 to windwos 10 but in windwos 10 PC freezing randomly especially in games. While PC freezing nothing was working how can i fix it and i cant go back to windows 8.1 because 1 month passed

Answer:Windows 10 after upgrade to windows 10 PC freezing especially in games

First up, you can go back to Windows 8 at any time if you wish. It just requires a clean install of Win8 as the 30-day rollback feature has expired.

Secondly, I have found Win10 poor at installing the correct drivers for motherboard and components. It only seems to get about 60% of drivers correct most of the time in my personal experience. They are good enough to have the system working but not good enough to ensure full functionality or stability across all programs.

Therefore, what have you done to confirm all the correct drivers and associated software have been installed?

Hi, I am using an Acer Aspire 5517, running Windows 7 Home Premium (Service Pack 1). While using it, every few minutes the system will hang. It becomes completely unresponsive and the cursor turns into a waiting icon (spinning circle) for anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple minutes before it becomes responsive again. It doesn't seem to matter what programs are running, I've seen it happen after a reboot while just using Windows Explorer. Norton Antivirus scans are clean. I also ran Malware Bytes, which cleaned up a few items but the problems persist. I'm not sure if there is other malware on the computer or if something else is wrong with it, but it's very frustrating. Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks

Answer:Windows 7 Keeps Freezing

Does the same thing happen in safe mode? If not, let's try a selective startup and see if it's something that's loading with the system causing the problem.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

Hi, I have been having a problem recently with windows XP. It seems to be freezing alot, and then asking if I want to send an error report after I have closed it down using windows task manager. It seems to happen the most if I have more than one IE window open or if I am trying to listen to music or download something while I am using another IE window.

This could be happening for a number of different reasons.
Do you know the specs of your computer (Processor speed, RAM, hard drive size - and how much of it is full etc.)?
Have you recently (or ever) run a disk defrag?
When you get the error message, does it give any particulars (like an error number)?

Can we get more info on the problem? when does it freeze? In what apps? Is there an error message? Is there the spinning "busy" circle? etc

Can you look in event viewer

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

I recently installed Windows 7 and it's only been frustrating me ever since I did.

My first problem is that Windows will randomly freeze up and I end up having to hard reboot my system. Windows will also BSOD on me randomly. I've read a number of things online about how to fix it, but nothing seems to help.

Also, another problem, I'm not quite sure how to explain this one. I'm not too computer savvy so forgive me if it doesn't make sense. Windows seems to "lag" from time to time as well. I'll move the mouse and it will appear off somewhere else, just like how you lag in video games, where you would move and appear in other places because the computer can't process it. Also, during this "lag" if there is any audio playing it will "loop"? The sound will repeat until the "lag" spike goes away. This will happen about 3 to 6 times within a few seconds and then it will stop. Sorry if I made that confusing but that's the best way I know how to describe it.

If anyone can offer any suggestion on how to fix these two problems, I would greatly appreciate it.

I wonder if anyone has suggestions on what to do about my problem.

My system is a P4 2 ghz. 256 MB DDR and a 40 GB hard disk. It was running Windows ME before. I upgraded it to Windows XP Professional. Everything was working fine. I upgraded the internet from a modem to a dsl line. No problem still worked fine.

This system is connected to other computers within a small network and I am using microsofts internet connection sharing to give the other computers internet access.

I upgraded the system to sp2 and that's where my problems started. Everytime you surf the net, for no particular reason, for no particular time, it will hang the computer. You can't do anything, no mouse no keyboard no CTRL-ALT-DELETE, you have to press the reset button and boot up again. It also freezes all internet access with the other computers.

Open Task Manager. Click on more details and check the processes and services running.
First try to find which process takes more cpu usage/memory. If it comes from a 3rd party program I'd advise uninstalling it (Control Panel/Programs).
I see you have an ASUS motherboard, have you installed some of their software ? I had some trouble with them, namely AI suite which even when uninstalled keeps services running and had an history of slowing systems (this is years old but keeps showing up even on recent versions). Uninstalle very ASUS software and feel free to disable any ASUS services still showing up.

I've been getting partial freezes on my HP laptop after upgrading to windows 8.1

What I mean by a partial freeze is when the app or program becomes unresponsive, but the mouse moves, alt+Tab works and the start button works too. However, I cannot make selections (i.e. Inside apps or the desktop) or open new programs.

Initially the freeze would stop after a minute or two, but these 2 days the freeze had directly caused the computer to shut down.

My laptop specs are as follows: 2.4 GHz processor (AMD A4-4300M) and 6 GB RAM. I only got it last year, came pre-installed with Windows 8.

I had no problems with Windows 8, I was not running any program that required a lot of memory. All the microsoft updates have been installed, drivers updated and registry cleaned. No conflicting anti-virus programs.

Please tell me what I should do, thanks in advance!

My problem began a while back, about a year ago id say. I had Windows vista, it would freeze the odd time for afew mins, then go back to normal. As time went on it got worse, froze for longer, and eventually nothing would respond.

Nothing much I could do so I waited out until Windows 7, which I bought about 2 weeks after release. I installed it, no problems for a while, but eventually back to the same thing, but this time with some of BSOD thrown in there too.

The BSOD does not happen too often, it only happens when windows has been frozen for a long period of time(if i have not already pulled the plug).
I have noticed that it only freezes when connected to the Internet, be it via wifi, mobile broadband or Ethernet. I open any browser(Opera,Chrome,Fire fox or IE) and it will freeze in the first 2 mins worth of browsing. Or if I don't even open a browser, if I watch a movie instead, it will still freeze(while connected to Internet). Everything works fine if i boot in safe mode with networking.

I have checked for viruses and found nothing. I am unsure where to go from here. Any help is appreciated.

A couple of times I got a box with a red cross saying something like Logon has failed to create a security file, or something, before the screen goes black, and I have to switch off the pc, and re-boot into safe mode.

I'll re-post in right thread

I've recently reinstalled windows XP cleared everything out so i could start again. My computer which is running Windows XP was frequently freezing the only solution was to reboot. I thought that reinstalling XP would sort the problem but after only fifteen minutes the same problem is present. No warning simply freezes. No mouse no keyboar nothing. I simnply have to reboot and loose what I've been working on. Before I thriow it in the tip can anyone help. I've attached the logfile from Hijack Tjhis if this can help sort things out. I'm slowly drifting into insanity and my dog is in real danger at this stage!!!!!

Question: Windows 8 Freezing

Windows eight freezes when I go from desktop to the start up where the tiles are. I have to control alt delete and shut down and bring it back up to unfreeze. While I'm doing the shutdown a message comes up about a task is waiting to finish. I've tried to do scans and can't find a problem. Help. Please move if this is the wrong place for seeking help.
