XP Pro O/S Load & SP2 Load/Update

Question: XP Pro O/S Load & SP2 Load/Update

I have 2 hard drives on my pc. I load my 2nd hard drive with my XP Pro and then I do the updates. SP2 loads, updates, and then reboots the PC. As it boots up and is starting to bring up the desktop it reboots, then it just repeatedly does a reboot. I shut it down for a while and started the PC back up. Still the same. Any ideas why this would happen?

Preferred Solution: XP Pro O/S Load & SP2 Load/Update

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: XP Pro O/S Load & SP2 Load/Update

ok this is gonna be a bit long but i want the details there. the issue pc is my old pc. it has windows 7 its an asus msn-la motherboard i cloned this drive and used it in my new pc. after a few months my new pc's drive died and i took the old drive from the issue pc(witch was not giving issues at this time) and stuck it into my new pc until my replacement drive came. when i got the replacement drive i cloned the drive again onto the replacement drive and then put the new drive in the new pc had no issues there. put the old drive back into the issue pc (this is when issues started) the pc booted up to the windows desktop loading screen fast but once it got there it sat there for like 5 min before loading into windows. once it loaded into windows it was un usable for around 10 min while it loaded background stuff. once it finally loads into windows if i try to open anything its still responding extremely slow. is there anything i could do to fix this or is this going to me a re install only situation? i did try to use a windows 7 disk to do a startup repair but it claimed i couldn't do it because i dident install from that disk.

Hi, I have an out of warranty T43. when I turn it on the screen remains completely black( no backlight). If i attach a external monitor I see that the computer is just booting over and over again. Safe Mode ect dont work. The blue screen pops up after each failed start. It says TOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure)The registry cannot load the hive (file)SystemRoot/System32/Config/SOFTWAREits log or alternate.is corrupt absent or not writable I can access the Access IBM. Through this I can save the files from the hard drive. I tried the restore. But the restore fails immediately.  Does this have the backup partition? Do i need some restore CD's? Is there a way to do this without losing the info on the computer? What step do I take now?

Our users have IE 7 and 8. We keep them locked into place by pointing IE to our firewall product (tools > internet options > connections > lan settings), so that only approved sites are the ones that our people can access.In the last few days, several of them report issues with specific websites loading very slowly - load times of over an hour just to get the log-in screen to appear.Troubleshooting Steps:1.) Unchecked the "use proxy server for your LAN" under the IE menus---> Site resolves instantly, as it should---> This pointed me to the direction that perhaps the site wasn't configured for our firewall2.) Re-checked the "use proxy server" box, and specifically configured the site in our firewall---> Site continues to resolve slowly, with the same load times as before performing step 1That would normally indicate that the problem is on the vendor's end. Something may be wrong with their site. And that's the line of thought I was pursuing until I was reported back to that the users are having the same problem on other websites. These new websites they're having problems with are, and have been for a long time, configured properly in the firewall.I'm not sure what my next step is to pursue. What am I looking for now? I don't know enough about networking to figure out where to track next.

Answer:Users are unable to load websites - no error, just 1-hour+ load times for pages

Bump.

Hi all, I am new to this forum & I am hoping you will be able to help me with a few problems I'm having with my PC.

This seems to be an intermittant problem but it happens more often than not.

When I boot up the pc no matter who's login i use (mine or the wifes) when the desktop loads, the taskbar down the bottom is frozen. When i move the mouse over it there is just a hour glass.

Also certain programs won't load up like I-tunes or the defrag yet when i go into processes the itunes exe is showing.

Internet explorer seems to work ok.

I have Avira anti-virus & I am using Adaware, Spybot & spywareguard.

OK, Im gonna explain what happened step by step cause Im not sure whats important. I dont understand very much about this stuff. I hope someone more expirienced then me will help me out.

Im using windows xp proffessional version.

OK It first happened while I was surfing online, I was surfing on sites that I can say are pretty much safe, but at the same time I was running either AVG 7.5 antivurus or their AVG antispyware 7.5 (not sure which one of the two) . At some point when the scanning was on my E hard drive ( windows is on my C hard drive ) the computer froze and naturally I restarted. But windows didnt wanna start after the restart, it kept giving these messeges: windows didnt shut down properly and it asked me to choose to start it in safe or normal or etc.. mode.

I tried every type of start mode, it didnt work. Windows wouldnt load and u know that line where windows loads would move a while and then stop.....no responce no nothing. So I tried restaring several times. Same thing, widnows didnt start properly last time, choose a mode...after I choose it loaded for a while but then stopped!

So I took it to the repair, the re-installed my windows. Now when I wanna start it, it runs properly doesnt ask me to choose, windows ... Read more

Answer:Windows Xp Doesnt Wanna Load, I Gotta Restart To Make It To Load

Are you able to boot in safe mode? It seems like you might have a conflict with the program wanting to run at start up..
My first suggestion is to boot safe mode, then remove your AV.. See if that helps..
Also, do you have more than one anti-virus program installed?

I have a NB100 And when it trys to boot i get Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys

I have connected a DVD drive with the product recovery disc GMR400882EN0 inside it and powered on, on booting i keep F12 pressed and I get the options for setting it to boot from HD FDD CD/DVD USB Memory, I set it to boot from CD/DVD

When it loads it gets to loading RAM image I get Error 32768 File PEBASE ISO Could Not Load.

I am suspecting faulty recovery disc? and a new one is £29.99? But the laptop is under warranty but they told me to do this.

Answer:NB100 Recovery Disc wont load - Error 32768 File PEBASE could not load

>I am suspecting faulty recovery disc? and a new one is £29.99? But the laptop is under warranty but they told me to do this.

I doubt it?s a faulty recovery disk.
The error message: missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys could be caused by faulty HDD or another hardware component.
In your case I recommend contacting the Toshiba ASP for hardware check and new OS installation. The notebook is under warranty (as you suggested in the posting above) and therefore everything should be done for free because it?s covered by warranty

Hi,
 
Laptop is a Samsung R510 running Vista.
 
When it is switched on, it gets stuck on the Samsung BIOS load screen. The F2 (Setup) and F4 (Recovery) buttons don't work unless they are pressed straight away. But when they are pressed it says 'Please Wait', but nothing happens.
 
I have changed the CMOS battery, but it hasn't helped.
 

 
I have also taken the hard drive out and turned it on, still the same.  Each RAM stick has been tried on its own, and it is still the same.
 
Can anyone help?

I run both IE 8 and Firefox on my Dell Dimension system. I'm having problems now with both browsers taking forever to load. This may be a virus or network problem. IE 8 just loaded now after 15 minutes (exactly - I timed it).

Details:
- Once it's loaded once, both browsers load in normal amounts of time.
- I haven't downloaded any new add-ons lately unless one browser or the other installed one in the background.
- The problem just started today after a reboot.
- I've also noticed that my network icon in the taskbar doesn't show up anymore when I first boot but by the time IE opens, it has showed up.
- Using ipconfig, I did determine that I am on the network and connected immediately after boot up (router also shows me connected immediately).
- I've tried running IE from the command line with iexplore.exe -extoff. It didn't make any difference. I don't know if this works with IE 8 though.
- When I click to open either web browser, the process shows up right away in Task Manager and remains.
- I have all the latest updates to both browsers that I know of.
- I've run a complete system scan with McAfee (fully updated as of today.)

Now I've run out of ideas on what to try. I appreciate any help!

Thanks!
Alec

I have always worked in Chrome. My work page won't load anymore, as of last week. I tried it in Internet Explorer, and then tried FireFox. Chrome and Internet Explorer both say the problem is with the site, not with my computer or my firewall. FireFox says the site may be busy and can't be contacted. Every other employee, including my husband's computer in the next room, can load this site.
I have tweaked my proxy settings to allow automatic connections. I have disabled Kaspersky and Ad Mucher. I have done three progressively early system restores, to times when I was able to load the web page. I have turned the computer on and off after each new fix I tried. Nothing has worked.
Any suggestions?

Internet access is very slow. It takes up to 3 minutes to get a page to load, and I have to hit 'Reload' 2-3 times before a site finally loads. When it does, Firefox still shows the site as loading. This problem appeared after one of three events. On the same day, I downloaded Babylon and FoxLingo. I have uninstalled both, and removed and remaining registry entries. I also received an email from my fan site on Ning (I am an author) requesting approval for a blog post. The link took me to my fan site, but there was no blog posted. I discovered it was the usual spam for male enhancement drugs, but perhaps it was hiding a more malicious virus. I cleaned up my Ning site and notified them. I have had the problem since. I ran AdAware and AVG, and only came up with minor cookies. I also ran SDFix, including catchme, and got 0 hits. I ran Malwarebytes, which only showed the SDFix files and 2 low-level threats. I also ran HiJackThis, but the log showed nothing that should not be present. All that leads me here. I have followed the procedure in the Prep Guide. FYI-I had to run GMER 3 times. It caused my system to freeze the first two times it finished scanning, which took over 10 hours. Outside of the Internet, my computer runs other software smoothly.

Looking for help.
I've recently completed a new build and can only get WinXP to boot, but not Win 7. First, my components:

ASUS P8Z68-V Pro MB
Intel i7 2600K
Kingston HyperX Ram, 16 GB (KHX1600C9C3K4/16GX)
GeForce 9500GT (used from prior system)
Seagate Barracuda 250 GB (from prior)
Maxtor 500 GB (from prior)
PS is 630W, not sure of brand off hand

My hard drives were previously partitioned as follows. The Seagate had a primary 100 GB boot partition with Windows 7 and the remainder as a backup partition. The Maxtor has a small 20 GB partition with Win XP (as a back up in case of primary drive failure) with the remainder of the drive used as my main data partition.

Assembly seemed to go fine but on first boot simply went to a black screen after post. I flash updated to most recent Bios and disconnected the Maxtor drive. At this point could get to the boot screen. But, no matter what option I chose (normal startup, safe mode, repair, last known working configuration), it would go to black screen with "Starting Windows," and would either hang here, or sometimes the loading animations with the colored flags would just begin to start and then I'd get a blue screen. When attempting safe mode, I would get a blue screen amidst loading drivers. At this point I put in the Win7 installation disk. Whether I select repair or new installation, it will say loading files then go to blue screen after the "Starting Windows" displayed.

At this point, I stripped ... Read more

Answer:Solved: Browsers will not load microsoft website but will load FB, Google etc etc

Either it's a problem server side for them, which would be an issue with your IP,
or a process/service altered some of your core system settings on your end which blocks the microsoft website for some reason....., you can try a different IP address just to make sure it's not server side for them, and then if that doesn't work I am not sure what to tell you other than reinstalling all browsers, and eventually refromatting if reinstalling browsers does not work.

IF it is an IP issue it could be something with your network, if a network admin blocked the microsoft website, or even theoretically your ISP if there was a strange issue with them, however that would be rare.

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

Answer:windows 7 refuses to load and system repair wont load

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

About 3 weeks ago, I noticed that my yahoo mail was not loading correctly.
Since then I have discovered that several websites will not load at all.

My wife's laptop with xp has no issues with the same sites.

Yahoo sites load partially displaying only text and text links.
While searching for remedies, I found yahoo answers that appeared like there might be useful information but could not get them to load either.

Two other example sites that do not load at all:
www.irs.gov

Firefox reports that they failed to load, Chrome reports that there was no data received.

I have Avast AV running, have tried clearing any and all rootkits. Tried Malware bytes, tried flushing the DNS cache. And as far as I can tell I am virus free yet nothing has helped.

I even tried looking up the IP address of irs.gov using nslookup and could not get any of the returned IP addresses to load.

I thought it may be a DNS issue, but I appear to be using reliable DNS servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Any ideas as to what may be causing my system to refuse to download specific web sites?

Answer:Some sites will not load, some load partially, most are fine - browser independent

and welcome to the Forum

Will those sites open with IE?

Greetings gurus. Internet trouble. As the title says, my mail will not load in any browser. Page load is very slow and most things time out at least once. AT&T ran line tests on DSL and everything was clean. Not sure how this could be. Speedtest was run many times and no probs. I even did some gaming which strains everything with no problems. I'm open to the possibility of a virus. Ran Avira and MBAM but haven't gone further. Strangely the wife's Facebook games are a no-go. Also, wireless devices work fine. Heeeeelp!

Im having this issue when I go to my Music folder/library in windows there is either no album art (in this case no icons in place of the album art either to suggest if its an mp3 or what not), or it takes a really long time for the album art to load on every peace of music. I have also tried to search on google about this problem. No luck probably because I'm rubbish at searching

ill really appreciate it if someone can help me out.

Here is a screen shot about what I'm on about ---->

Text in image: Files that have no album art still have the file type icon on them.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Answer:Album art takes long to load or doesn't load at all in explorer.exe

Welcome aboard, ksbansal

If you dont have adequate RAM/free RAM to generate the arts, it happens. Let us know the size of your ram, and you need to run this test, too.

I just had a friend put together a new computer for salvaging some old parts and mostly new parts. I have an antec 900 case, evga e8400 mother board, nvidia geforce 8800 gt graphics card, and two wd 600gb HDD with 4 gb ram.

I installed windows vista on one of the discs, and it started out rebooting fine, however it seems to take literally minutes to get to the vista sign in. I have a blinking cursor for minutes, than sometimes it will wake up and fully load and show the sign in. Other times it seems to just hang sometimes with blinking cursor, sometimes without.

Does anyone know what could be causing this and what I can or should do about it? other than uninstalling vista and going back to xp? vista does load quickly after signin, but the wait from hitting power button to actual sign takes forever. Thanks in advance.

I have HP Envy 17.3 m7-n109dx, windows 10 64-bit I got the windows blue screen, then when the windows attempted to restart a black scrren showed up, and windows did not boot. I tried several things, but nothing worked. Here is a list of what I have tried: 1. I did a hard reset. 2. I made sure the batery and the AC adaptor are not the problem. 3. I tried pressing the ESC seveal times after powering the device, but nothing happened (to load the safe mode). 4. I tried to restore the bios by pressing the windows and B keys, and then pressing and then releasing the power botton, and continue to press the other two keys. When I do that, I can see the hard drive light comes on for a few seconds, then the screen lights, but it stays blank. I contine to press the two keys for 1-2 minutes, but nothing shows on the screen. Then when I release the windows and the B keys, the screen goes dark, and the power buttoon continues to light. The power goes off if I press the power button for several seconds. I tired this several times. 5. I tried step 4, but with a USB drive. The same happened. 6. I tried pressing the power button, then the  F2 key (several times). The screen continued to be black. 7. I tried the pressing the windows key + P. Nothing happened. 8. I tried to run HP Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) from a USB, but the screen remaind black. 9. I tried to load the safe mode from a USB, but the screen remained black. If there is ... Read more

I have a very simple web page that automatically updates daily. However, very often when I view it I just get the version that is in my browser cache rather than the latest version from the web. I have to do a manual refresh from the browser to see the latest version. Not a problem for me, but other viewers of the page may not realize they aren't seeing the latest information.

Is there an HTML tag or some such that can be included in the page that will force a refresh and override any old version that the viewer may still have in their browser cache?

I haven't used my PC for a few days and when I came to use it I found that it was off. So I turned it on and it brings up the XP loading screen and as it starts to load it jumps to a screen allowing me to open Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode and Safe Mode with prompt.

It also allows me to restart from a restore point which I have tried but just repeats the process.

I have started in SafeMode with Networking.

If I turn the PC off it will restart and the red working light will run but it won't fire anything up (Monitor remains in sleep mode) and I have to wait for about 10 mins at which point the Safe Mode option will be repeated.

I have run the logs as requested and I'm happy to provide more detail in any way necessary.

Yours hopefully CWD1982
 

Answer:Windows XP won't load but then gives the option to and will load in Safe Mode

I am not finding any malware in your logs. I suggest you post in the software forum and maybe try doing a repair install.

Since you are not having any malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. You can uninstall RogueKiller and HitManPro.
Go back to step 6 oof the READ ME and renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it.
Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
If running Vista or Win 7, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders
related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:

I am trying to solve this problem on a friend's laptop. It is a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 64bit, using Chrome. Bought within the last year. I can play videos from sites like youtube, hulu, and sports sites, but when I try to play a video from putlocker, gorillavid, or other streaming sites typically used for videos like anime or tv shows the video either doesn't load (just spins) or takes a REALLY long time to load, almost like it is downloading the full video before it plays.

I borrowed another laptop from the library which also has Windows 7 and Chrome and all the videos play fine on it using the same internet connection, so it is definitely something local to this machine.

I have searched the net for three days trying to find a solution, but to no avail. I have the latest versions of flash, java, etc. I have tried older versions of flash. I've disabled the antivirus and firewall. Disabled the built-in flash plugin for chrome. I really am not sure what else to do. If anyone has any suggestions I would readily welcome them. I have tried other browsers as well and had similar issues.
 

Answer:Online videos do not load or take a very long time to load

No ideas I guess?

This just started happening last night. Earlier that day I bought a 160gb seagate external HD at Fry's for 50 bux and was moving tons a files over to it (for about 3 hours). At one point I cancelled uploading and rebooted fine, but later that night my girlfriend did the same thing and rebooted and XP will not load... not in safe mode. I didn't install anything with the external HD as it was Plug n Play and I didn't install any new programs yesterday either...

I don't have a Win XP CD either (or boot disk). I guess my first action will need to be to buy Win XP and try a system recovery?


Is there any way to find out what is stopping it from loading?

I also switched the memory sticks with some other memory and that did nothing...

I'm at a loss :l

Answer:Windows XP won't load passed the load screen...

ap f8 when booting and from the options try
last known good configuration
if that's no good boot into the recovery console and try

Answer:Web pages wont load or load completely

Do you have more then 1 computer connected to your modem/router? If so, does this happen on them? If not, can you connect a separate one (ex: friend's laptop) to test?

Normally when you get errors like this it's best to rule out a problem at the modem/router and provider before going crazy over trying to fix a problem (that may not exist) on your PC(s).

Also just a couple of other questions:

Who is your internet provider (ISP)?
What connection type do they use (Cable/DSL/Fiber/Fixed Wireless/Mobile Wireless)?
What is the make and model of your router and modem?

Answer:Certain websites wont load, or they take very long to load.

It appears that you have already posted a hijackthis log here.Please be patient while waiting for assistance. HJT Helpers are all volunteers regardless where you post a log. While waiting for a response, you should not ask for help elsewhere or make changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) Any modifications you make on your own can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the HJT Helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.If you had posted your log here, similar rules would apply. We would ask that you be patient while awaiting a reply and refrain from asking for help elsewhere.If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the HJT Team Helper when they respond to assist you with your log. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please start a new topic. If you have any questions, please PM me or another moderator.Thanks for your cooperation.

Answer:Doesn't Always Connect And Pages Don't Always Load Or Load Right

Hello,

Sorry for the delay, this forum is very busy right now.

There is a program from a company called SearchHelp, Inc. on this computer. Sentry at Home or Sentry Remote. From the information I can gather on the Internet, this is a legitimate application aimed at allowing parents control over their children's web surfing habits. Judging by some of the lines in this log it uses a proxy server and several other techniques to filter internet content. This might explain why you have trouble connecting to some web sites.

If you are the owner of this computer and installed this program, I would suggest disabling it temporarily to see whether your problems persist.

Whether they do or not, post a fresh HijackThis log along with the results of this test.

Dave

wrt54gs ip page did not load when I type ip address, but modem page load instead.

Answer:ip main page did not load,but load moderm pag

Sounds like your Modem is on that IP address and your Router is on another. I thought LinkSys routers used 192.168.1.1 out of the box and most DSL modems used 192.168.1.254 and Cable modems used 192.168.100.1. Which address are you using? What kind of Modem do you have (Model Number and if it is DSL or Cable)?

Hey.My computer has been operating excruciatingly slow over the past few months, and I have no idea why. I'm pretty new to computers, as far as, being able to fix them myself. I run ESET-NOD32 as anti-virus; Zone Alarm as a firewall; and Prevx. I also regularly scan with Ad-Aware SE, Spybot- S&D, AVG, and Spyware Blaster (which I don't think that I am using correctly).I followed the steps that you have outlined in the "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting" but was unable to get the on-line scanners to work (all 3). I was using IE at the time.All my scans come up clean, but programs are loading too slow, or not at all.

I've just started having this problem and its killing me.

I have 2 computers. My server is running windows 2000 server, and the secondary computer is running xp Pro.

The internet was working fine on my secondary computer, and then one day, it just started becoming slow, and it would not load pages (images wouldn't fully load, some pages wouldn't load at all). If i type in a url in the address bar for IE it would load the page quickly (probably from cache), but then proceeding to click links would cause "Page not found" or "timed out" errors.

I know that i can reach these sites, i ping them and get normal responses. It seems that IE is just not displaying them properly or something. The internet on my server computer works perfectly fine.

I have 2 nic cards in the server computer, 1 recieving the cable modem, and one receiving a LAN cable from my Hub.

Anybody have any ideas? Like i said, it worked on my secondary cmputer before. Also, i hooked up another computer to my hub and the internet was working fine, and then i installed Service Pack 3 and it started crapping out like mentioned above.

This is driving me NUTS!! ahhh. please help.

Thanks

I've had a subscription to the online version of USA Today since 2012 and rarely had a problem viewing it.  A few days ago, I began having a problem.  I can login OK, but the newspaper won't display.  This happens on 2 PCs, one desktop, the other a laptop.  Both PCs run Win7 Pro SP1 x64.  The problem also happens using both IE and FF.
 
Normally, I run the MVPS hosts file on both PCs.  Because I had updated the hosts file a few days ago as well, I decided to put back the default MS (blank) hosts file to see if perhaps the new hosts file was blocking something USA Today needed.  With the default MS hosts file, I got a different result as shown in the screen shot below:
 

 
 
That prompt at the bottom took me by surprise so I Googled it.  I got many hits for "load.js from loadm.exelator.com" described as a Redirect Virus.  I'm assuming the one I'm receiving is related.  I clicked on cancel.  The USA Today newspaper still did not display.
 
Any idea where this file is coming from?
 
Any ideas why I can no longer view the USA Today online?
 
I run Norton Security on both PCs.  I've received no Norton warnings about any virus.  I also ran full scans with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware on both PCs and they were clean.

Answer:Do you want to open or save load.js from load.exelator.com?

This problem is screwy.  From about 7am-11am this morning, I was getting the same result shown in my opening post.  Then, sometime after 11am, it started working, mostly.
 
With the MVPS hosts file loaded, the newspaper displayed normally:
 

 
 
With the default MS hosts file loaded, the newspaper displays, but again with the load.js asking to be opened or saved.
 

 
I clicked on cancel.
 
Wonder how long it will continue to load properly.
 
Sure would like to know where that load.js is coming from and if it is malicious or not.  Just for chuckles, I downloaded the 1k file and opened it with Notepad.  Here is what was in the file:

document.write('<img src="https://load.s3.amazonaws.com/pixel.gif" width="0" height="0" />');

Just started two-days-ago. Mozilla 1.5.0.7 and IE 6.0.2900. I did a system restore back for two weeks to no avail as "nothing changed."

Mozilla and IE, through Mozilla, either takes long to load or no load. If it does load does so without .gifs or some links. Some links are broken. Some will load the login page fine then freeze on the next page.

The perplexing part is that it affects only a few pages but not the whole site: my hompage, Nasdaq.com; ebay.com (after the login page), espn.com takes a while, 240 sec, to load then only partially load.

Network fine, signal strength fine, I've killed Symantec, no difference. Switched to Windows firewall, no difference. Killed Adblock, no diff. Ran Spyware Doc, nothing; NAV scan, nothing.

I'm lost. Anyone have an idea?

Thanks in advance.

At first it ran at 7.6 and the problems with pages started so i reinstalled the drivers from the disk and it shot straight upto 8.1.

Update - 9/8/15

Fixed by reinstalling Windows fresh (Again).

I think the problem was caused by installing Windows linked with my Microsoft account and then switching that to a local user. My Microsoft account was registered for the insider program so perhaps I was receiving the fast updates and switching to a local account put me on slow updates which got Windows Update muddled in the confusion.

Original Post

Windows Update appears to be stuck/broken. It displays this loading animation even when left alone for an entire day (See screenshot). All the other panels such as Windows Defender will display their available options, it is only Windows Update that will not show.

This is a clean install of Windows 10 Home.

I have made some alterations to the service configuration, disabling what I had been advised as unnecessary services. I have reverted as many of those changes as I could remember but it is a possibility that one of those changes caused this.

Background Intelligent Transfer service is "Running" and set to "Automatic (Delayed Start)".
Windows Update service is "Running" and set to "Manual (Trigger Start)".

8 Aug 15 - Edit: I have cross referenced services with another computer with an unaltered fresh install of Windows 10 Home. No difference in service configuration was found.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to look at my issue. I just ran into a problem with my computer. My computer is running windows 7 64bit.

I got a new graphics card in today and put in my computer to crossfire. After I booted my computer back up it loaded fine, albeit slow, but crashed while installing new drivers for the card. Since then I haven't been able to get back on to that SSD(boot drive).

I can't access the advanced boot options to roll back the drivers that were installed as soon as the SSD was booted up.

I've tried numerous suggestions that I've found from other troubleshooting threads on the forums including; looking in my bios for a shortcut, pressing f8 twice per second, holding f8 down, pressing f8 as soon as the bios screen goes away in between the system attempting to load.
I just can't get to the advanced boot menu!

Any suggestions?

Edit: I should say that I AM able to load up windows on my storage hdd which also has windows 7 64bit installed; however, it doesn't even register that my SSD is plugged in under device manager or just computer.

Edit 2: This is crushing my life please help! lol

Answer:SSD Won't load my OS after driver update

Boot into BIOS setup to make sure SSD is detected and set first to boot, after DVD drive.

Then boot into Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair several times. It should offer to automate System Restore. If not and it fails to start Win7, boot back into Recovery Options to run System Restore and Disk Check

If SSD is not detected and is under warranty contact it's maker's Tech Support for help to test and if necessary RMA it. Otherwise replace the cables, test the drive using maker's diagnostics followed by Disk Check.

A week or so ago, I went to open a .pdf and it said there was an error. I bypassed this by opening the file in Google Docs. Yesterday, I updated Adobe (I'm not sure if it's Acrobat or Reader). Today, I finally restarted my computer. It's now in an endless cycle of booting. I've tried booting it in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, and Normal, but it never gets past the XP logo with the animated progress bar. I inserted the XP disc and tried to preform a system repair, but to be honest, I don't really know what I'm doing. I tried the CHKDSK, but it didn't reveal anything. Instead of tracking down and fixing the error, I'd rather just delete Adobe off my computer since I'm confident that's causing the problem, but in the command prompt, it says access is denied. I'm hoping someone can help me out. Thanks!

Sorry to bother you yet again!

I did Windows updates ona new harddrive and after one of them, I got an ad on my IE6 start page which is set for google. The ad is to install the google search toolbar or something. It didn't look like something I wanted and I didn't try to close it, except with Alt F4. I tried an early system restore point to get rid of it and I deinstalled IE6 from Windows Components, and put in a new version from I think ZDNet. The same problem is there, the ad, but since then additionally, I can no longer update my AVG or Bitdefender online updates.

For AVG I get: "Could not install AVG Anti-virus kernel interface. Application cannot run."
I deinstalled AVG and restalled it without effect.

When I tried to run BitDefender I got: BitDefender failed to update the virus definitions. Although it might be useful..."

After that, I decided to come here. I was not able to run Panda. Counter Spy found nothing. I didn't run BitDefender without the new definitions.
I'm attaching logs for CounterSpy, ShowNew, RunKey, and HJT.

So sorry to be asking for help again!

Windows XP Professional
IE 6 SP1

This workstation had been hit with a virus and malware had been installed.
Cleaned the virus off with Trendmicro and using AdAware SE to clean up the malware.

Now Windows update will not load. IE opens but the window remains white. PC is configured to receive Microsoft updates from our Software update server but can't verify the updates because Windows Update will not come up. IE will browse to other web sites.

Ran HijackThis. The log is below. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows Update will not load

You have been hit by the new Bube.d (aka Win32.Beavis) virus which severely messes with some Windows settings,including the update feature.

A recent automatic security update for IE7 wouldn't load. I went to the update site and tried to download KB938127. It told me it was incompatible with my files in XP Pro.

I don't use IE and Firefox is set as my default browser. Should I worry about this or just ignore it?

How do I get rid of the shield sitting in my sys tray? I know all it contains is the IE update.
 

Answer:IE Security Update will not load

Even though you do not use IE, you do need to keep it patched simply because it is joined so closely with Windows.

I found two reasons why this update might fail to install:
1)Cryptographics services are disabled
2)Security policy preventing install

For the first, go into your services and be sure this is set to Automatic
source: http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
for what XP Pro services should be set to

For the 2nd, download the update from here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938127

then, disconnect from the internet and turn off your antivirus and try to install it.

Hi, I ran the Lenovo update software and it updated my BIOS. After the restart - the computer wouldn't load. XP tries to load and then there is a brief sec where there is a blue screen (too fast to read what it says) and then the computer restarts again. When it was updating the BIOS it said it was creating a bios.bak file to backup the old BIOS - how do I revert back to the old BIOS? Currently in the setup screen it says that the BIOS version is 68ET35WW(V3.03) but I cannot start Windows.(safe mode doesn't work as well) Any help will be much appreciated.

Answer:Can't load XP after a BIOS update

Check your BIOS for an option called "AHCI controller working mode" or "SATA controller working mode" and revert it's settings.

I started the day off yesterday with a clean computer. Formatted the hard drive and installed a clean version of Win7Pro. I got to install Windows and load it up for the first time, so I proceeded to install my drivers on my MoBo *Asus Crosshair IV Extreme* and restarted the computer afterwords to enure everything was working.

Now here's where my problem occurs. I plugged my computer into the internet *wired* and after it automatically updated Windows, it restarts the computer. All is good so far. It starts loading windows, and gets to the Windows background where I normally WOULD log-in, but it never finishes loading the log-in screen.

I attempted to repair windows, and it said Windows was installed properly and there is nothing to fix.

I reformatted, re-installed, and this time I didn't give it a log-in password so it would automatically go to the desktop. Installed my ethernet controller, and restarted my computer.

I wired my computer to the internet now, and it automatically downloaded and installed the newest updates for windows again, restarted the computer, an this time it got to that EXACT SAME SCREEN, however I have no log-in so it was just the desktop background screen that it got to, and it never finished loading windows. I just had the background, no files, no task bar.

When I press ctrl+alt+del my screen goes black and nothing happens.

I went back and repeated the process but I didn't install the ethernet controller, this time I installed a USB... Read more

Answer:Win7Pro won't load after Win Update/etc.

So you know it can boot into Windows 7 because it was working before the updates.

Some updates may take a long time to complete. When it is being non-responsive, do you see any hard drive activity?

Have you tried starting in Safe Mode after the problem occurs?

When Windows Update offers update, you can set it so you will be able to see what is offered and not take any of the hardware type of updates...

When I launch the settings and go to Update, it loads forever instead of opening the options.

I have Googled to try to solve this issue but nothing has worked for me.

I've tried running this diagnostic: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/gp/windows-update-issues/en-us
I've tried running these .bat files to reset Windows update: Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Help Forums

So far nothing has worked for me unfortunately. I am wondering if anyone here has any other ideas of what I could do to fix this problem?

I have had itunes with an Wiondows XP 32 bit pc for many years. I now have a new pc with Window 7 64bit, i7-2600, 16 G RAM, and 1T of memory. My problem is I can not load itunes 10.6.3 into the pc. When I try, the program says it was interupted and the change did not take place. It then asks me to press finish or cancel. When I press finish, the program says thank you and gives me the4 option to store the program in G. I no longer have a G as that has been replaced by H. There is no opportunity to change the save location to H. and simply says to load the external disk, which does not exist.

When I try to uninstal the itunes programs by strting with itunes first, the pc says that ituneshelper. Resources is not a valid short name. Any suggestions on this?

Answer:Can't load update for itunes.

Welcome to Seven Forums, David.

It appears that you have already downloaded the 64-bit iTunes Setup Program from Apple Web Site. I think the latest version is iTunes 10.6.3.25 Setup.exe. If so then unistall iTunes from the Computer that you had intalled earlier and clean the Registry of all iTunes related keys and values. After that reboot and then install the latest version afresh.

Try installing in safe mode first as there is no harm in trying but I don't think it shall install.

Answer:Windows update will not load

Hi, try the following making sure each stage is clear or fixed before proceeding:

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

For over a week, when I start my laptop, it seems to start normally, then I get a screen that says "updates could not load and changes are being undone, don't turn off my computer'.  Does anyone know what is going on?  I am using Windows 8.1.
 
I have Panda Security, and Anti Super Spyware, both paid for.  I just got rid of Win Patrol free, although I have used it on my old laptop without problems.  I have not purchased or downloaded any other programs.
 
Any ideas how I can find out what is going on?

Answer:Windows update won't load.

I'm just offering some advice. I'm not a Computer expert, just so you know
 
I had this issue on 2 different PCs, both with Windows 8.1.
It would force me into updates, and then say that the updates were unsuccessful and that it is undoing the changes.
It stayed in a restart loop of 'undoing changes' until I went into Safe Mode (using Shift + F8) and did a System Restore.
I have now changed the settings on BOTH computers to not automatically install update. I don't need that kind of trouble! LOL

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

Answer:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?
