AMD launches another desktop APU, the A8-7670K

Question: AMD launches another desktop APU, the A8-7670K

While Intel has dominated the high-performance CPU market for years, AMD continues to provide value to those on a budget with their reasonably attractive range of APUs. Today, the company has announced a new APU, the A8-7670K, that slots into...

Preferred Solution: AMD launches another desktop APU, the A8-7670K

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.)

In last night before went to zzz was going to check emails and some game news with my Desktop Pc from Pc Gamer website,but browser didn't get connection to net even Steam was Online and Laptop next to me online as well. Laptop is connected to Modem with Ethernet Cable and was working so went to zzz and hoped that it's similar when only browser can't connect,but Steam can. Today when launched my Desktop Rig it seems that browser still can't connect and Steam notifies about launching as admin,but doesn't go to phase where u put username & pw,but Rig just loads for a moment and then nothing.

Raptr client also doesn't even go to login screen & would inform that can't connect to net,but instead gives pop up window about raptrstub log file for details. This is so weird and never happened before..At 1st i thought that my Desktop Pc's integrated network card is blown cause still after 8hrs of zzz can't connect and espesially weird and scary now when applications don't even go to login phase "client showing on screen".

This scary problem came now just before i've got rest of the components together for building new Rig. I'm only missing Cpu & Motherboard & get them in early next month.

Did you run the network troubleshooter from right clicking the network icon in System tray?

Go over your install closely using the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will uncover most problems.

Do you have a wireless adapter you can try to compare? Change the ethernet cable? Try another ethernet port?

I have a new Asus Transformer Book T100 running win 8.1 (not RT). Whenever I launch IE from the Tile screen it switches to desktop then IE launches in desktop version. Some setting I need to adjust? First experience with Win 8 & touchscreen.

Answer:IE always launches in desktop mode

Hello Sam,

The tutorial below can help show you how to restore the modern Internet Explorer. Most likely you will just need to make sure that the desktop IE is set as the default program to do so.

WinXP Pro - chkdsk runs EVERY time I boot this PC. Initially, it reported that the "voleme is dirty". I found some info about how to disable the "dirty" switch, but it still said the volume was dirty, and still runs chkdsk every boot and the desktop never appears. It generally either reboots after chkdsk finishes (and then goes right back to chkdsk), or it occasionally errors out to a blue screen error (0xc0000005 I think?) and some info about a corrupt registry hive (system32\config\system I think?). It seems that all the info I've found on how to fix this requires the PC to boot to a desktop, and that is simply not happening. The data on this PC is of utmost importance to the client, so that presents another level of problems....

i had installed internet download manager 6.16 and after few days i uninstalled it using advanced uninstaller. but icon is still in desktop and launches too on double click with some error message. i checked it in installed software list but it is not there, the i deleted all the files from its installation directory in c drive program folder and nothing remaining there, so please help how to get rid of this.....from where it is working if nothing is left over there. help me to remove it

Answer:software uninstalled but icon is on desktop and launches too.why?

Can't you just delete this icon? If not, then reboot.

Also, for the future, always use the Programs and Features control panel (the installed software list) to uninstall programs. Failing that,check to see if the program itself has its own uninstaller. Failing that, then turn to alternative methods.

Microsoft has got its groove back -- at least when it comes to designing an operating system that really delivers. By comparison, Apple's most recent product launch -- a multitouch mouse -- looks almost laughable. Still, Microsoft could definitely learn a few things from Apple's product presentations.

This is very weird! I'm running XP Pro SP3, and, all of a sudden, every time I try to copy or move a folder on the desktop, an application installer runs!

The explorer operation works fine, but the installer always runs too.

I'm not sure it matters, but in this case the installer it tries to run every time is the Windows version of Smith Micro StuffIt 2009. That app is already installed (I installed it a year ago), and both the app and the installer are reported to be malware-free.

Naturally, it seemed to me that this must be a malware infection of some kind, so I ran everything at my disposal with maximum settings and the latest updates: Avira AntiVir 2010 Premium, SuperAntiSpyware Pro, and Spyware Doctor on every file on every disk. I turned OFF any settings that limited their scans just to the standard executables and archives so that they'd all scan every single file, no matter what it's extension. None of them found any infections of any kind (I'm careful to try to keep my systems clean).

But it also seems to me that an infection would attempt to do something harmful to my system, not merely try to re-install an already installed app. But I realize there are bugs even in malware, so who knows?

I didn't install anything recently or even knowingly download any new files. All I've been doing for the last few days is browsing and using email.

I looked at the explorer.exe registry settings and nothing looked as if ther... Read more

I consider myself a fairly tech savvy person, but I have a few problems that have got me pulling my short and curlies out in utter feverish frustration
Problem 1:

I was playing AD&D and other table top RPGs online in IRC chat, and utilized several programs in order to do so. I stopped over six months ago and have since removed and deleted all those programs and data. I not only used a removal tool, but also went individually into the Program Files directories where they were installed and made sure everything is gone. I've run several current up to date malware and virus checks as well. No programs are in my startup menu that would do this.

A mysterious, empty folder named "AD&D 2nd edition" appears on my desktop. If I delete it, it reappears within a few minutes, without fail.

Similarly, after every boot, a C:\ explorer window opens. Nothing in my startup menu should be doing this.
Problem 2:

Despite full virus and malware scans, Google analytics windows open by themselves while I'm browsing with Firefox. Not a multitude of them, just one, and every now again, maybe after an hour since the last one was shut down.


Thank you for your assistance, I've got this msg on instant e-mail notify so I'll get back right away.

Advanced Micro Devices is trying to beat Intel on price with its latest six-core desktop Phenom II X6 processors that were unveiled today.

AMD is shipping two X6 processors that are substantially less pricey than Intel's latest six-core Core i7-980XM desktop processor, which was announced last month. The Phenom II X6 1090T processor runs at 3.2GHz and is priced at $295, while the 1055T, which runs at 2.8GHz, is priced at $199. Intel's Core i7-980XM desktop processor is priced at $999, according to a price list on Intel's Web site.

The X6 chips are targeted at gamers and buyers looking for high-performance desktops, said Adam Kozak, platform marketing manager at AMD. The chips are the fastest yet in AMD's desktop processor lineup.

Answer:AMD launches six-core desktop chip price war with Intel

There we go.....that is typically how AMD competes with Intel on CPU's. It's not usually $50 price differences we are talking about. It's hundreds of dollars. And the Core i7-980x is over $1,000 which is insane Now to start reading the benchmarks.

Opera launches Neon, a new experimental desktop browser

Browsers have gotten boring. After a flurry of innovation, especially around the time Google launched Chrome, things slowed down over the last few years. We?ve seen a few interesting experiments, mostly from smaller players like Yandex, Brave and Vivaldi, but the largest players have pretty much stuck to their script. Opera, which was sold to a consortium of Chinese companies last year, is now doing its part to mix things up with the launch of Opera Neon, an experimental desktop browser for Windows and Mac that tries to reimagine what a modern browser should look like.

The moment you open Neon, you?ll notice that this is not your average browser. There is no task bar or bookmarks bar (though the team kept the concept of the URL bar alive). Instead of having tabs at the top, you get round bubbles on the right. It automatically grabs your desktop?s background image and uses that as the background image of your new tabs page.

There is also a sidebar on the left that lets you control audio and video playback (which you can also pop out so you can watch it even while you?re surfing in other tabs). This same sidebar also features a screenshotting tool and access to your recent downloads.

For those of you with very large and wide screens, Opera Neon also allows you to place two browser tabs side-by-side within the same window (similar to the split-screen view on iOS or Android).

I spent the last day or so pl... Read more

Windows Media Player launches on its own without me clicking on it and I am not even viewing/listening to anything. I am usually in the middle of typing in Microsoft Word or a Yahoo chat.

Then my laptop goes haywire...
-some type of file extension appears in what I am typing like ][.jspg or something like that.
-i can no longer type...if i push any keys it usually goes to the tool bar in the document/chat I am working on like it is a command key or something trying to open the drop downs for tools, file edit, etc.
-then if i click on any of my icons on the desktop, they no longer launch. What appears is the gray properties box, so I am not able to launch any applications.

This was happening frequently and I decided to use the recovery disk and reinstall everything. That didn't work and I wound up replacing the hard drive (well a computer tech did).

Since the new hard drive it has been working fine until tonight when Windows Media Player launched for no reason while I was typing my paper for class.

Stats:
Windows Media Player 11
Toshiba Satellite M45-S269
Windows XP

By the way, if I shut down my laptop and restart I am usually fine. Now it only has happened once since the new hard drive but I don't think it should be happening at all. I am starting here but don't know if it is more of a Hardware issue.

Any ideas?

I cannot seem to get any third party scsci devices installed, not even sure if I have any actually LLoLL, but this can be adressed elsewhere.

Problem being the boot loader im getting doesnt tell me any more information than the BIOS is re-setting its own cmos. I booted from the new HD and evertyhing seemed normal, perfect installation of a windows home edition sp2, problem is I CANNOT GET MY WESTERN DIGITAL HARD DRIVE functioning to its full capabilities, for example id like to use the via Sata Raid utility that came with my hardware and its outdated.

Hi - for the last 2 days I've had a strange problem where my PC randomly opens yahoo in IE when I'm typing (it's not my home page)
It only does this whilst I'm using the keyboard, browsing by mouse is fine.
I've tried using notepad to see if it's a specific keystroke making it launch, but best I can see this really is random.

I'm running an HP Pavilion with XP Media Centre Internet Security v2002 & SP3.
For security I use Norton Internet Security etc, virus definitions all up to date.
I also have a HP Multimedia wireless keyboard - it has quick access keys across the top but I'm not going anywhere near these.

First thing I checked was the Multimedia keyboard settings - moved them all back to defaults, so 'Internet Launch' should take me to hp website.
Carry on typing, problem started again. Checked keyboard settings, they were pointing back to Yahoo.

So I ran a full Norton scan overnight and it came back clean (bar one tracking cookie which I cleaned).
I ran a Panda scan today following some notes on this website, and again it just came back with cookies (have saved the result)
I've deleted all temp internet files, cookies etc.
I've installed the latest software from hp for my keyboard and rebooted a number of times.

The problem is still happening. I know it doesn't sound so bad, but as it switches focus to the new tab when you're half way through a word it's a real pain.

I am running XP Pro, SP2 and for some reason IE will no longer launch. I was using the browser, hit Ctrl+N to open a new window, and my IE window closed. When I tried to relaunch nothing happened other than a brief appearance by the hourglass - no error messages, no event log entry, nothing. I've rebooted, reinstalled IE, and scanned for viruses, but nothing seems to work. The weird thing is that if I open up Windows Explorer and type a URL in the navigation bar I can access websites without any trouble. However, clicking on a link that tries to open a new browser window or hitting Ctrl+N will cause the window to disappear. Help!

If you open a program thru Start, programs (select program) does it work normally the first time you open a program?
Just for grins, try a different keyboard if its a desktop.
I am thinking, maybe you should do a hard drive scan and let the scan try to fix bad sectors.
Then maybe run SFC scannow google that for directions.

Hi,

I can launch IE and it will attempt to go to my homepage http://www.google.co.uk. The DNS resolves OK and sometimes the page does render fully and sometimes it gets maybe just the top menu bar from Google. The IE bottom left status says "Done" but the progress bar stays at 100% green. The UI is now frozen.

I have to "End Process" to kill IE This brings up a popup saying "You chose to end a nonresponsive program, Internet Explorer"

Chrome and Firefox work OK to the same URLs.

Windows Update also does not get new files though it is set to download them.

I've got up to date AVG 2012, SuperAntispyware, MalwareBytes and Windows Defender. None indicate any problems.

Possibly related...

If I issue this command "iexplore.exe -extoff" I get a window that looks like the Windows File Explorer titled "http://xtoff/ - Microsoft Internet Explorer" that is also frozen but is displaying the Desktop and one level down icons.

And, if I right click the desktop IE shortcut I can choose NoAddOns but clicking it pops up a message saying "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder Options control panel"

I hope I've given you enough to go on and please do let me know if I can provide any more details that will help get to the bottom of IE and Windows Updates not working.

All help appreciated,

Onward,

Looks like the new 64 bit version of Windows officially launches tomorrow. From Techweb.com:

Microsoft will officially roll out 64-bit versions of its Windows operating systems at its WinHEC conference in Seattle on Monday.

"On Monday, Microsoft will launch their x64 operating systems, both client and server," said Intel spokesperson Erica Fields, in an email intended to emphasize the support the software will have for Intel's processors. "The Windows operating systems have supported Intel's Hyper-Threading technology, execute-disable bit and, now, Intel's 64-bit and dual-core processors."

While the software was only available in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, China and in Nordic countries during its trial run, Kaspersky is releasing it worldwide. The free antivirus doesn't have VPN, Parental Controls and Online Payment Protection its paid counterpart offers, but it has all the essential features you need to protect your PC. It can scan files and emails, protect your PC while you use the web and quarantine malware that infects your system."

Great Web site! I have some few tips for you:

1.) You may want to center your web site in the middle of the page.

2.) you main image is a little distorted. If you want a larger one you should try and upload a larger sized picture. Your Pall-Trans logo is also distorted I can't read what it says underneath it.

3.) you may want to change your title to something other then Blank (maybe Tomino Logistics)

4.) This is optional but I think it would look better if you put your addresses and telephone number in a box. (put a square around it)

Gotta be a corrupt registry or something, but I've got a computer that launches MS Money setup when ever I open just about any other program or My documents, Control Panel, or My computer etc.

Could this be a bad file association, so that the Windows Installer or Money Installer has been associated with opening a window or something?

Any ideas without a Wipe and reload?
 

Answer:MS Money setup launches with everything

No one has any idea on why one specific program would launch when ever any windows are opened?

I know it's not a Beta, but with Win7, it carried on working for a long time after launch and was cheap to purchase for the Beta testers.

What happens this time round?

Answer:Will testers need to purchase 8 when it launches?

Well, there have been numerous free releases including the RTM trial of enterprise which is free for anybody.

And the upgrade price of $39 is pretty low, especially in comparison to previous versions...so I don't forsee them offering it any cheaper to testers.

People doing extensive testing likely have Technet and are using that.

This problem is occurring on two different Windows XP machines, one pro & one home. After an extended period of time ranging from about 20 hrs to 3 days it becomes impossible to launch applications and currently running apps cannot open a pop-up window. Typically I have about 20 windows open, but will have started and stopped dozens, possibly hundreds of mostly console apps. If I close some then it is possible to load apps, but the process repeats itself requiring even more windows to be closed. The only solution is to reboot and then all is well. Immediately following the reboot I can open all the apps present before the reboot and many more.

The most useful error message I have gotten is an Event Id 26, which is not very helpful since it seems to be a generic message used when any popup window fails. Both system & user apps are affected. I have lived with it on a Dell desktop for well over a year. Now I’m having the same problem with a Thinkpad. The Dell is hyper-threaded and the Thinkpad dual-core. My other machines have been single. I have not tried turning the feature off yet, but I will.

It seems obvious to me that some system resource is being used up, but I cannot identify what it is. I have tried shutting down all apps and trying to bring the system back as close as I can to a post-boot status. There is plenty of both real & virtual memory available. There is no unusual number of processes running.

Answer:Windows XP pop-ups and app launches fail after 24 hrs

Go into task manager and go to the Processes tab. This should tell you what programs are taking up what resources. Could be one of your programs you use might close, but the process does not stop. It could be that everytime you launch it, it creates another session of it and eventually you have a bunch of extra processes going. Check that out and let me know.

Ive seen that happen with Outlook before.

This seems to only happen in IE and no other browser. A pop up ad launches a Window Installer that tries to install Microsoft Office. I cancel it and it tries about 3 more times. After canceling for about the 4th a pop up ad comes up. The ads seems to all come from adserving.cpxinteractive.com. I get this when I visit websites like zshare.net

Hello, I'm new to these forums. I have mentioned this problem to a few people and a few forums, but I have not felt I've been given the best advice to deal with my problem.

For a few months now, I have had a problem with my computer. Basically, if I want to check something by clicking on Control Panel or My Computer, before taking me to the proper screen, Internet Explorer will suddenly launch, and a window will pop up telling me I may be at risk of spyware, and that I should scan my computer. Clicking the "X" button usually does not close it at first. Sometimes, it will tell me I have porn on my computer (which I don't).

I have scanned my computer with the latest, up to date version of Avasts free antivirus software, and although it has found a few virus in the past, recent scans have come up with nothing. I'm also using SpyBot: Search and Destroy, also up to date and also finding nothing.

I have an old, used computer that uses Windows 2000 which I have been using for a few months. It used to be an office computer, and it has a very small hard drive, so downloading new programs may not be an option. I was using the free Comodo firewall, but had to uninstall recently due to problems with it not opening up. I have also tried uninstalling Ad-Aware 2007, to free up space, but have been unable to do so.

Recently after trying personally to remove viruses on my laptop, i decided to play around with deleting affected files and tried different setting in the boot system in MSCONFIG.

Subsequently when screen loads up to user profiles it asks for Admin password, after which it goes straight to the CMD.exe screen. Windows obviously hasn't started up as i can only get this or Task Bar up on the screen. There is no Start button or the usual Windows background.

How do i get MSCONFIG back up at this stage to change the settings back to it's original. I've tried F8 and the various Safe Mode settings but it still loads up to CMD after i enter Admin password.

ANy help is appreciated. If i am at a loss here, please let me know as obviously there is a final option and to pay someone to back up my files and reboot the whole of the system to Factory settings.
 

Answer:Laptop launches straight to cmd.exe

It really depends what you changed and what you deleted. If you get a command prompt, then Windows is loaded and running. There is no other command prompt in the NT series unless you have the 16-bit one.

Try running msconfig from the command prompt.

You can use Parted Magic to transfer all your files if you decide to do a factory restoration.

Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.

if vista encourages more 64 bit apps to be realeased, won't xp64 be more useful?

if vista takes 600-800mb of ram while idle (as many people are saying in the forums), and uses alot of the cpu... then shouldn't we stick to xp64 if we have drivers for our stuff (i do, its just there is a lack of software)...

A few days ago firefox starts at startup. Theres nothing listed in startup for it. Im fairly sure its not a virus or malware. Is there a tool that can monitor what causes it to pull up? The only recent changes have been setting up a vpn.

I reinstalled firefox and didnt atart on its own for about 10 boots but now it is. I have vpncheck pro that autostarts rograms and disables them when vpn is active but this occurred before that program was installed. it closes firefox after startup cause it sees no vpn. the vpn connects and reopens it like it should. So i dont think it that software..

nvm. yesterday i was doing system image restores. today just got done creating one. I think it involves windows 8 fastboot thing with shutdown vs restarting. maybe i had it open and thats why cause it doesnt happen with restart.

Everytime the user clicks on a new Word document, it opens a completely new session of Word instead of opening within the current session.

Hi,

My problem is this:

When I launch IE it opens in a maximum view. This is fine. However, when I click on a link that lauches a new window to another website, it's invariably minimized. It also does this when I test pages through Dreamweaver. I looked through "internet options", but couldn't locate anything that would be helpful. I just want it to default to a maximized view (or, should I say, the normal default view). Any advice?

Much appreciated,
Dan

skipfish - web application security scanner
What is skipfish?
Skipfish is an active web application security reconnaissance tool. It prepares an interactive sitemap for the targeted site by carrying out a recursive crawl and dictionary-based probes. The resulting map is then annotated with the output from a number of active (but hopefully non-disruptive) security checks. The final report generated by the tool is meant to serve as a foundation for professional web application security assessments.
Why should I bother with this particular tool?
A number of commercial and open source tools with analogous functionality is readily available (e.g., Nikto, Nessus); stick to the one that suits you best. That said, skipfish tries to address some of the common problems associated with web security scanners. Specific advantages include:
High performance: 500+ requests per second against responsive Internet targets, 2000+ requests per second on LAN / MAN networks, and 7000+ requests against local instances have been observed, with a very modest CPU, network, and memory footprint. This can be attributed to:
Multiplexing single-thread, fully asynchronous network I/O and data processing model that eliminates memory management, scheduling, and IPC inefficiencies present in some multi-threaded clients.
Advanced HTTP/1.1 features such as range requests, content compression, and keep-alive connections, as well as forced response size limiting, to keep network-level overhead in che... Read more

I don't want to get rid of realplayer because it's really good at tagging, downloading, and converting FLVs, like Youtube. But it keeps launching processes, even when I'm not using it, and the computer starts to run slower until I shut them down manually. It's annoying. Is there any way around this beyond getting rid of it?

Realplayer actually puts a little tag above FLVs, to click and download. Other programs are more awkward, and forget those web based thingies - they're time-limited and buggy. I like its abilities in that regard but I hate all those processes.
 

Answer:Realplayer launches too many processes

RealPlayer does install unecessary modules as Startup Items which start automatically with Windows.
Provided you know what you are looking for, you can disable them with Ccleaner from here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Install it & open it.
Click "Tools", then click "Startup".
Here, ALL your startup items are listed in one place.
Select (one at a time) anything which refers to RealPlayer or one of it's modules, then click "Disable".

When done, close Ccleaner and restart Windows. Items you've just disabled will no longer start with Windows.
If your are very confident, you can (optionally) open Ccleaner again and this time "Delete" any disabled items you definitely know you will never need.

Syllable Launches New Browser

The Syllable project has reached another long-time milestone. It was always planned to factor out the web rendering engine of its web browser, ABrowse, into a library with a native Syllable View widget on top, so it can be embedded into more applications than just a web browser. Kristian Van Der Vliet did just that: building on Arno Klenke's WebCore port, he updated that and then stepped up the modularisation by creating the WebView class. He rewrote the browser on top of that and named it Webster [screenshot]. The first alpha version is available in the project's applications downloads. The latest Syllable 0.6.6 development build is required to run it, as several bugs in the system were fixed for the new browser. The next development build will have Webster included. The source code is available on the development site.

Keyboard(info from driver tab): Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft natural PS/2 Keyboard

From few days ago, whenever I press CTRL inside a Windows Explorer(e.g. My Computer) , my default browser launches my homepage. Or when I am in Chrome/IE, it goes to my homepage.

The problem does NOT exist when I use another keyboard.

I tried reinstalling drivers, no results.

I changed/removed registry key which is for "WebHome" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\AppKey\7
No results.


Any ideas?

Answer:CTRL launches browser homepage ?!?!?!

Yes, the keyboard is faulty
Basically they accumulate dust and grime from the moisture of our skin (yucky I know, but when I have opened some of these faulty keyboards you wouldn't believe the amount of moisture inside)

Repalce the faulty keyboard, as the "Ctrl" key seems to be allowing two keys to be pressed simultaneously (through dust or grime)

Kaspersky launches its own OS on Russian routers:
SOURCE: theregister.co.uk (ARTICLE DATE: 23rd Aug 2016)

Kaspersky Labs has finished building its eponymously-named operating system after four years of quiet development...
[IMAGE: commons.wikimedia.org]

Little information about the OS has made it onto the English-speaking side of the internet. Kaspersky Labs Russia told Vulture South to wait a few weeks for the English press release for information.

What we do know is that in 2012 ebullient Kaspersky Lab chief executive officer Eugene Kaspersky described the OS as a ground-up build to help protect industrial control systems.

A more detailed paper published at the time revealed it would be designed to help protect infrastructure like power stations, electricity grids, and telecommunications networks.

It appears the operating system has been deployed in routers manufactured by Russian outfit Kraftway, a company that seems to sell into various industrial control system markets, and verticals including government, healthcare, and education.

After I reinstalled, the application complained about the previous attempt and asked if I wanted to start in Safe Mode. Well, it has been about 15 hours and still Outlook is trying to launch. Obviously something is still cached somewhere, possibly the Application Data folder? This computer is up to date for Hotfixes and event viewer only has generic "Application Hangs" in the logs.
