"Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now."

Question: "Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now."

Thanks in advance for your help. It appears I have randomly picked up a virus of some sort wherein whenever I am connected to the internet, my computer gives the "Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now." message, and my computer restarts as the message states. I have run adaware and malwarebytes' antimalware with mixed results, and downloaded a windows malware removal tool, but none have completely eliminated the problem. I can turn the internet off via a switch on my netbook (it is a HP Mini 110-1100 with Windows 7 Starter), and when I have that turned off before I log in, the computer works as normal, but of course the internet is a much-needed tool. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: "Windows Has Recovered From a Critical Error and Will Restart in One Minute. Please Save your Work Now."

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.)

[Sirefef virus]Hi all.It looks like I've picked up a virus while browsing the internet (Drive-by infection). The computer was operating OK except last night I heard it playing a video talking about meryl streep (through the speakers) but there was no window open (a bit sus). Then when I checked this morning, I saw that System Centre essentials, Windows update, Firewall and whatever Windows Defender is now called have all been disabled (computer still functioning OK though...).I then tried to reinstall System Centre Essentials and now get a message every time I boot the computer saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work Now". This happens in Normal and Safe Mode.I'm not running a CD Drive emulator, and I'd love some suggestions on how to tackle this given my 1 minute window of opportunity when the computer boots.Thanks![Edit] Just tried rebooting my PC this morning, it looks like I have picked up the sirefef virus (or a variant) - the latest definitions from MSE picked it up. It's still doing the reboot every minute trick though, and the files keep reappearing after i "Clean" them.[Edit #2] I have used Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 (http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/rescuedisk/) to locate the original version of Services.exe in the winsxs folder and copy it back to the c:\windows\system32\ folder (after renaming the one sirefef put there) could have...

Hi. I have recently had a few problems with my laptop which is only a couple of months old. A few days ago I received numerous warnings about Trojan threats through Windows Defender. My AVG scanner is not working (looking into this) so I am not yet certain if there is a real threat on my computer.

Anyway, starting yesterday and continuing today, when starting my laptop, I receive an error message saying that there has been a 'critical error' and that the laptop will restart in 1 minute. This morning, I received this message 4 times in a row and only on my 5th restart did I not get the message.

I have no idea whether this error is linked to Trojan threats or anything else but it is very worrying for me, seeing as my laptop is new.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?
my computer says this each time it is started in normal start-up mode. I recently got the Doctor Malware virus and I downloaded the anti malware software to get rid of it but i cant update it or even find out if it did anything because now every time i try to start up in normal mode i get the message "windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and it restarts.
also, i've already tried a system restore
also, unfortunately, i cant even run safe mode with networking. so no internet.
i tried a couple registry cleaner. it seemed to find and fix a lot stuff but then when i restarted the computer and it still shut down right away.

Answer:Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute?

Try getting to safe mode and do the following:
Just turn on your computer with F8 pressed.

Choose Safe Mode option.

Logon using your Administrator level user.

Next, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run...

Type MSCONFIG and click OK.

Go to the SERVICES tab and search for Gbp Service.

Uncheck it and click OK.

Restart and see if the problem is gone.

please seven forums help me out.. thanks

Answer:critical error 1 minute pc will restart due to network prob!

Did this always happen, or is this something new? If it just happened, did it occur after a Windows update, or you updating a driver? Try restoring your computer to a date before any of this occurred. Does this address the problem?

Oh, and check out:
Event ID 7001

You will need to know the source as well as the type.

Hi all,

My father is having desktop eMachine with Windows vista 32 bit home. AMD dual core some kind of from eMachine. There was some problem that his pc was getting slower and slower. So I did check his PC but there was no problem found on it as I have scanned it with Norton latest version which is installed on the same machine. Logs were clean. Also having SPYBOT on it. It was showing all clean logs. I have decided to install Microsoft security Essential with that as I did not find any virus/malware prob. As I have been using different kind of Antiviruses on different machines in real life with Microsoft Security essential and did not have any Compatibility issues.

But after installing that I found list of viruses Microsoft Security Essential have detected. Which was having same Virus but with different strings. sirefef.r
sirefef.ag sirefef.ad sirefef.b etc.. list is long.. When Microsoft Security Essential tried to remove it at that time problem started. It quarantined almost half but then System gave Critical Error Msg and gave msg that it will restart in one minute. every time when I start it will restart in 1 minute. Then I have tried safe mode but it worked for twice only then it started giving same error in SAFE MODE too and restarted.

Shortly after starting up Windows7 I get the message "Windows Encountered a Crirical Problem and Will Restart in 1 Minute..." and then the PC restarts in 1 minute. It does the same thing in safe mode. It happens every time I start it up and leaves no time to run anything to stop a malware process like rkill and restarts before tdsskiller can complete a scan.I doubt there is any real hardware problem because it started happening just after installing software from the internet that is supposed to backup DVDs to a harddrive. I was also experiencing browser redirect problems before. If I can't cure the problem I will have to try to save any data I need by booting it into an OS on a live CD like some version of linux and then do a reinstall of Windows7. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that so if anybody can help it would be great.

Hello. I was just browsing the internet when all of a sudden a fake virus scanner came up (Antimalware Doctor) and started automatically scanning. After about 30 seconds or so of "scanning", I get a window popup saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." So I restarted the PC in Safe Mode, and I no longer get the message. If I do Safe Mode with Networking or a normal boot, I get the message. (Seems to be whenever I am connected to the internet) So naturally, I cannot download any software in time while connected to the internet before it reboots. However, I am on my laptop and am able to transfer files with a flash drive if needed. I have run SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes and managed to get rid of the Antimalware Doctor, but I'm still having problems with "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." whenever my computer is connected to the internet.

Just this afternoon, I went to use my PC and got the following error; Windows has experienced a critical error and will restart in 1 minute.

Running Windows 7 64 bit....With automatic updates so it should be the latest version of Windows...

My anti virus (Avira 2012 Internet Suite) pops up and states I have 2 viruses. But before the AV can do anything (delete the files) Windows shuts down....I finally got into Safe Mode and tried running my AV, while it was scanning I then got a BSOD. Had to start all over again; Running MalwareBytes now before trying to do the AV scan, just to see if MalwareBytes catches anything.

I have uninstalled the only application I've installed in 3 months, and problem still persists...

I have a Hijackthis log if it needs to be viewed...Just let me know and I'll upload it.
 

Answer:Windows has a critical error and will reboot in 1 minute

when you get the 1 minute warning, try typing from the start menu "shutdown -a" or "shutdown /a", and the countdown should go away, and you should be able to remove the viruses.

Be sure to disable your system restore backups (delete them), or the viruses may come back. Re-enable them as soon as you are sure you have gotten rid of the viruses.

Yesterday, while using my computer, my anti-virus 'Microsoft Security Essentials' popped up stating it had found a virus. Within a second, a windows update window popped up with an update ready to install, followed immediatly by 'AntiSpyware Doctor' and a window saying 'Windows has encountered a serious error and will shut down in one minute' which it then proceeded to do. This continues to appear everytime the computer is started.

Starting the computer in safe mode allowed me to use Malware Bytes to eliminate Antispyware docter, as it no longer appears when starting the computer, however the error message ,above, still continues. I believe the problem occurs only when the computer is connected to the internet as it does not occur if i am able to stop my computer from automatically connecting to the internet upon startup.

I tried a system restore, however it fails and reports a problem with a file in the drivers folder in the system 32 folder. I am unable to interact with this file at all as the computer tells me it is unable to find the source disc whenever i try.

I have access to a Windows Install disc.

Hi,

Went to turn on my computer today and got a screen with the Dell Logo and a message "Boot manager has recovered from a critical error." It went on to say there were missing or corrupt files that were restored from the default configuration. I did a Google search and found absolutely nothing about this error. Can someone provide some insight? I am a bit freaked out.This laptop is only 2 months old. I couldn't find anything in the event viewer either. Thanks in advance!

Answer:Boot Manager Has Recovered From a Critical Error??

Hi

In a UEFI boot configuration (default for Win 8/8.1 x64 ), Windows boot loader and it's configuration will be stored inside a small hidden partition called EFI System Partition. UEFI BIOS in modern laptops will check and make sure the boot files are not corrupted or compromised before loading Windows. If the validation check failed, entire boot configuration and the boot manager will be restored from a backup copy. I am not sure how your boot loader became corrupted. There is multiple possibilities. For example, a stealth type malware like Rootkit's may try to modify the boot configuration. Trying to install Linux distros may also result in the same. Another possibility is an unexpected or improper shutdown which resulted in file corruption.

On Tuesday morning around 8:15 I got a little dialog box that stated (as close as I can recall) that Windows had encountered a critical problem and would restart in one minute, and that I should save my work. When I clicked my start button I saw that the restart option was grayed out, so I just had to sit there and wait for the restart to happen. Once it did and the computer was back, everything seemed normal. I looked in the Event Viewer and the nearest thing I could find to a cause was something about lsass.exe having stopped working. Also, later I noticed in the Windows update control panel that Windows Defender had updated itself at 8 AM that morning (at least according to my OS).

Relevant details: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit- I was running Firefox, iTunes and Steam at the time. My antivirus program is avast! free version. Everything is updated. My version of Java was one revision out of date (7 update 4 instead of 5--since fixed). I use FoxIt Reader and not Adobe so that's not a vector. I ran a full Malwarebytes scan and found nothing. Also ran TDSSkiller.exe and found no problems.

There has been no strange behavior since the forced reboot, and there were Windows updates installed yesterday, and everything seems to be behaving properly, but on another forum I frequent someone said this might be a rootkit, so I'm paranoid. Is there something I can do to be sure?

Answer:Win7 "critical error" restarting in 1 minute message--infection?

It looks like ZeroAccess rootkit.Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6.

Over the last few weeks my PC has been experiencing random crashes then restarting. I haven't been present for every crash (I'm one of those people who tend to leave my PC on most of the time), but those I have witnessed follow two patterns.

1) A blue screen flashes by very quickly, with the message "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to take control of the machine." There's more text, but the screen disappears and my PC restarts before I can read.

2) A message pops up saying that windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute, a minute later my PC abruptly crashes then restarts.

After a google search of the latter symptom I began to wonder if it was a virus, but Norton Scan (and power eraser) both show clean.

System:
Packard Bell ixtreme M3730
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8300 @2.50GHz 2.50 GHz

Good Afternoon,

So Im fairly adept with computers but I cant seem to solve this problem.

On my VAIO FZN, there seems to be a virus which has taken control of my computer, most likely some sort of rootkit. When the computer starts

it says "You are about to be logged off - Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now."

after about 3-5minutes. BUT the catch is that this only occurs when the computer has the front LAN switch turned on. when this switch is off it works fine except for that I cant connect to the internet. I have run multiple AV programs which have removed some viruses but obviously not the main problem.
I have also run Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 from my flashdrive which was successful in its scan but since the computer cant get online it wont run the full program (to update), at least I dont think it has.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions,

Thanks so much,
Blake

I've already tried to run MalwareBytes, and have even removed a couple of malwares in the process, but it hasn't resolved the issue at all.

It makes me restart my computer endlessly, so I started just ignoring the message, but then my task bar disappeared. Also, it does not let me run some of my computer's programs, or makes me run them in odd ways.

What do I do? Please help.

As an add-on, I've already tried looking on some other forums, but they've all suggested things which involve using the disk to reboot Windows entirely, but unfortunately, I have misplaced the disk. So, unfortunately, that's out of the running (unless my ONLY option is to go out and completely re-buy Windows Vista).

I'm just going to write down all the issues I have been having with this computer since I bought it;

1) Unable to restart, sometimes gets stuck on windows update (if there is one), and even if there isn't an update, it will still get stuck on the restart window and force me to reboot it manually

2) Start menu does not work, I get the 'critical error' message every time. (Sometimes it does start working but 90% of the time it isn't working).

3) The bottom right icons (volume, network, etc. ) do not respond to left clicks, and are only accessible with right clicks.

4) I've tried following many guides on the forums but most of the time I end up with a permissions error that the guide does not cover. I removed the association to my hotmail account and converted my user to a local user and that seems to actually solve the problem I was having here.

5) On every boot, there's a message saying "can't read this type of file: .cpp", can't remember the exact message but it's something along those lines.

6) I contacted microsoft and they did a remote session with me; they said that by installing the windows 10 update, it would solve all my problems. The windows 10 update does not give me the option to keep my files, and I DO NOT want to lose any files. They also wanted to create a bootable instead but that also meant losing my files on my USB which I have nowhere else to back up (that usb IS my backup.. smh).

So i had a DELL 790 i3 SFF desktop, which was running spot on and flawlessly for 2 years. But i decided to upgrade to exactly the same model but i5 processor recently. I had swapped out my SSD and my 8GB of memory (known good) and stuck it in my I5 processor desktop.

Since i first powered on the desktop (2 weeks ago) i have had nothing but problems such as:

-Random restarts
-Sometimes a 1 second multi coloured horizontal lines before it restarts
-Complete freezing

Things i have done to try and fix the issue myself

-Replaced heatsink compound
-Ran Core temp (temps all ok)
-Updated drivers from device manager
-Removed my USB wifi dongle
-Ran check disk on my SSD and other external HDD's
-Ran memory test on my RAM (all ok)
-Finally i professionally wiped the SSD and formated a fresh Windows 7 64bit onto it.

I am still getting these same issues. But i will say in the last 7 days i have had ZERO issues. Today i have had 3 restarts and 1 time froze. Once when it froze i decided t try my USB keyboard in other usb ports and 1 port was working the other 8 wasn't, so with the working port i managed to move the mouse/keyboard but wasn't able to go into my computer..etc (just a not responding message and never ever closed down even with CTRL+ALT+DEL to end process).

Answer:Kernel-Power 41 (63) critical error (Random restart/Freezing)

Couple other things to add this the above. Just now it froze again, so i tried to remote in with my remote access and i could remote in fine and operate the PC fine!. So it seems the USB ports are dying randomly. However, i can see when it freezes and i plug something in the USB ports such as a external drive, i get a LED light on it but no sound.(this doesn't explain the random restarts though). Any thoughts? i posted on another forum but members there just replied and said 'i think its faulty', i am looking for a little bit more input than that with something that i already do not know!.

Hello,

I am having trouble with a malware infection on my laptop. It is a HP HDX 16 Running Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

While browsing the internet all of the sudden a dialog box popped up showing that Live Security Platinum was running a scan and detecting all sorts of malware. Realizing that I never installed a program of that name on my computer I was suspicious and tried to do a search online. Firefox wouldn't open but iexplorer would. I was able to determine that this was some sort of rogue program from the info on the internet and decided to try and run microsoft security essentials to fix it.
When i opened microsof security essential is said that it was experiencing an error of some sort and wasn't working. The whole time i was getting errors from various installed programs. I then tried to use TrojanKiller from gridinsoft, installed it and ran it and it showed various malware detected but wouldn't remove anything unless i bought it(which might have been the better choice). I decided that i would try and reinstall MSE at that point and see if that would take care of the issue. I uninstalled the current installation and reinstalled it. As soon as it finished installing my computer restarted and has been stuck in the critical restart loop since.

Hello.

I'm not sure what nasty I have. In normal mode, I get three critical error messages like below with different file numbers.

---------------
Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the components for the file \System32\496A8300. The file is corrupted or unreadable. The error may be caused by a PC hardware problem.
-------------

I have a black screen, can run nothing, cannot access files, cannot connect to the internet.

In safe mode, I can get the files to display and can access a CD and external hard drive, but still cannot access the internet.

I used a laptop to transfer DeFogger, DDS, and GMER. I ran Defogger, obtained DDS logs, but twice GMER caused a stop screen error: RQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and dumped the memory - had to reboot.

Previously, I had run rkill, TDSS, and MBAM. Once, the TDSS log indicated it had stopped C:\WINDOWS\system32\grpcon.exe - I believe it was the third time I ran it. Otherwise I get zero files terminated. I cannot run MBAM. I get run-time error '53' mbamnet. I tried using randmbam.exe, but was still unsuccessful after 10 attempts.

I get locked up in safe mode and have to turn off the computer and restart the whole process. This morning, I missed the safe mode tap and when starting up in normal, Spybot popped up and stated it had terminated a file called win32.zbot.

Its horrible malicious software that installs itself onto your computer. I have been battling for days now and came here for answers. I say the best thing you can do is just leave it turned off untill you get help from all these nice folks. Getting on and fiddling will proably make it worse since this program is always shifting if you don't get it all the way.

Its horrible, but sit back these folks can fix it. Atleast its not getting any worse turned off.

I was using my grandmother's computer tonight and somehow infected by Live Security Platinum. I used Malwarebytes to remove it by following the directions here.It appeared to work, but after restarting my computer, I keep getting the error, "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." I open up Microsoft Security Essentials to see what is causing the problem, and the two programs "Win64/Sirefef.Y" and "Win64/Sirefef.B" are labeled as dangerous.

Since installing SP2 there have been a number of critical updates for Windows XP - including 4 today. I have downloaded and installed all these but now wonder whether I can copy the files to CD so that if I have to do a reformat I don't have to download them again. I have SP2 on CD. Is it too late? Should I have done something before I downloaded and installed the files?

This only happens when i play high graphic games, i tried playing PES 2011 and it works fine.

Then I go to mafia 2 and after 1 minute the screen is pixelated by little squares and then black screen. Then a message comes up saying display driver has stopped working and has recovered.

Could it be that I am playing mafia 2 on steam and PES 2011 on my own computer?

Here is a blue screen message

i uninstalled the drivers for my ATI 3870 today so i dont have any drivers at the moment.

Answer:Game Crashes after 1 minute -- TDR -- Display driver has stopped working and has recovered?

Well, first off you need to reinstall the drivers. Second, have you tried to turn down the graphic settings for mafia 2? also, I know that steam updates your games automatically, but just to be sure you should go into the game on steam and make sure it is up to date. Good luck

Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work.

I get this error after logging on, it doesn't matter what account I log on as. Could be a domain or local account. Every time I get this error and it restarts. You can't boot up into safe mode, you get the same error. I tried F11 to boot to recovery and restore windows and it comes up with a black screen with a blinking cursor.
Now just earlier this week I had the exact same error on another PC and was able to F11 and restore windows.

These are both Lenovo PC's, the first one is brand new, the 2nd one has been used for awhile. Has anyone else had these issues? I've searched and it seems like everyone else has said it's a virus, I've ran a kaspersky bootable CD and it doesn't find anything. Also the first one I mentioned is a brand new PC, I doubt it would have received a virus within less than a day.. no one has hardly if at all used it.
IBM says it's a corrupt OS, every forum says it's a virus...

I have moved this thread over, as I felt it was a different issue.

Previous thread - Most of the main services will not start?

I'm running win 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, which has been fine up to a few days ago when on start up reaching the desktop I started getting a window saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." it would then restart and continually loop this way.

I booted to safe mode and had no restart message, so was able to run a virus scan using Microsoft security essentials, however if I booted to safe mode with networking the restart window would show again.

I have looked for the Gbp Service, which I was advised might be causing the problem, but cannot find this in services running.

However, I have found that by discounting the internet, the restart issue does not show, but as soon as I connect to the internet, it pops up and the system restarts.

Does this indicate a virus or trojen of some kind?

Any suggestion how I stop this, as I cannot run a up to date antivirus program without being connected to the internet to get the latest updates?

Happy.

Answer:Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatic

Do you have a restore point before the problem began ... a repair install may be the way to go as well....

I've tried to stop the restarting by pressing f8 and then "disable automatic restart"
I've tried going through cmd > shutdown -a

Still, the problem persists, even in safe mode.

I've also done scans with spybot, malwarebytes, and microsoft security essentials. They detected a few things, but the problem still continues.


Does anyone have a solution, because this one has me stumped.

Why didn't I come here first? That's what I keep asking. In any event, here's my situation. Several weeks ago, I had something pop up identified as "Live Security Platinum". Knowing it was a virus, I was able to run Malwarebytes and it seemed to get rid of it. Then the computer got caught in this endless loop of the message popping up with "Windows has encountered a critical problem & will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now". Sure enough, it cycles and continuously reboots.

Ok peeps, here"s the rundown. None of my USB devices work. Keyboard does work in BIOS and i found a mouse with a PS2 plug so that works in windows. I have to use the on screen keyboard to type. I noticed that under USB Root Hubs in the device manager all have the yellow caution sign. I tried to update , but windows says driver is up to date. So i uninstall all the USB Root Hub drivers and restart the computer. The keyboard works fine for about a minute or two after windows starts, but after windows finishes installing the usb drivers, key keyboard doesn"t work anymore. Any suggestions?

Answer:USB drivers keep going bad a minute after restart

Hum strange mate as I have a card reader that has the yellow symbols yet still work though I suppose they do come off a board header. Just where are you downloading the drivers from I like to go to the manufacturers site ie the board and it's driver list rather than just do the Windows thing.

Pity you didn't have the pS/2 KB mate as mine have got me out of many a fix.

So some specs eh? and oh and welcome!!

Forgot what is the keyboard brand they usually have their own software too.

Hi everyone.
Last week i experienced a bios failure, after restart there was no post, i was able to solve it easily, replacing the mobo battery, clearing CMOS and returning the bios to the last stable point. Everything was ok, until i started getting the "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message after every restart. I read through some topics in the forum and i ran SFC /SCANNOW with the following result: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log..."
Truth be told, i have no idea what does the information on my CBS.Log file, can anyone read it and tell me what's the problem?
Thanks a lot

Dump files and CBS.Log attached

Answer:"windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" after restart

Sometimes sfc /scannow requires 3 consecutive runs in order to repair/replace corrupt files - please try that.

I also noticed that you don't have SP1 installed - I would do that via Windows update. In addition, please re-run the SF tool again - the systeminfo.txt file is missing from your ZIP file.

I mistakenly ran Scandisk on a usb drive and it deleted a file with all my class notes. I know it usually saves a backup of the file in a .chk format somewhere but i have no idea where to find it?

Answer:where does scandisk save recovered files?

Hi, they should be on the drive probably called something like FILE0000.CHK,FILE0001.CHK. You can explore them locate your missing data and rename the file to the .doc or .docx extension then use word to open them. There are some free third party programs that purport to do this for you. I have never used them. This is one reason why chkdsk should be run with the "F" parameter not the "R".

it is very frustrating. it used to hang and give me an overlclocking error. i never set the thing to over clock! just standard install of windows 7 64 bit. on restart it just starts up. errors in the events log are "not critical" according to microsoft and web searches. but they happen frequently. mostly about the screensaver, which is now turned off. just standard windows background too.

Given all of these problems, honestly, you should reset your BIOS or at least your CPU settings and then perform a clean installation of Windows. The adware scan you're unsure of sounds like malware.

Answer:windows recovered from a serious error

The error you've seen is quite wide in its spectrum of causing factors, however for your case we'll be focusing on the following:
? Incompatible video adapter drivers.
? Damaged RAM.
? A damaged device driver or system service.

To check out the first one, please post back the exact model/type for your motherboard and graphics card.

To eliminate the second one, please download the Windows Memory Diagnostic utility and use it according to its instructions for about four hours. Post back the results.

To confirm the third one, please press Windows key + R, type devmgmt.msc, press OK. Go to the View menu, select Show hidden devices. Report back any yellow exclamation or question marks you may be seeing and close the Device Manager. In addition, press Windows key + R, type eventvwr.msc, press OK. Look for Errors (white "X" on red circle) and post back.

Answer:Windows has just recovered from a serious error

Hello,

First i would like to say that following a windows guide to the problems is not always the best way to handle things. I would suggest using more useful and better things, such as this forum, google, etc.

As for your driver error, first go to the control panel. In the control panel go to system -> hardware -> device manager. If there are any ! post back what they are. If there are none... well we may have to try a few things.

Upon running Spybot Search & Destroy (v 1.6.2), it gets about 25% complete and the system crashes and automatically reboots. Upon reboot, a windows message pops up indicating the system has recovered from a serious error. I did some research on this message and common causes. I found that often the error can be pin-pointed by looking that the windows dmp file. This particular fault is definitely repeatable and each dmp file looks the same so I am certain the information in the dmp file is fairly accurate. The system specs are as follows:

Windows XP (32-bit) SP3
AMD Athlon XP 2.2GHz
ASUS A7N8X mobo
2 GB of DDR400 Corsair RAM
ATI Rage vid card (don't know the model off hand)

I have all the latest drivers installed including the mobo BIOS. All windows updates have been done as well. Attached is the information I extracted from the dmp file using windows debugger. According to the info, the root cause seems to be the "ntoskrnl.exe" file. I would like to get some feedback from anyone on if I am interpreting the dmp file info correctly. Also, does this error point to potential hardware (mainly memory) failure? I have not tried re-seating components and cleaning the dust out. I have known this to help in some cases. Any additional feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I need to provide any additional information... Read more

Answer:Windows has recovered from a serious error

Your friend's computer either has file system corruption or Windows system corruption. I'd run a file system check first. If that doens't solve the problem then a Windows Repair.

To run a file system check, My Computer -> Lock Disk (right-click) -> Properties -> Tools -> Error Checking -> Check Now -> (select both options/checkboxes) -> Start -> (restart computer)

Repost with results.

My computer was connected to the internet and was downloading a movie from utorrent in the Nhanc3 format A.K.A (blue ray format ).After sometime I came back to find that my computer has restarted and when I logged in a message stated that "THE SYSTEM HAS RECOVERED FROM A SERIOUS ERROR). I have Quickheal Total Security on my computer and Quickheal PC tuner.I used the PC tuner to clean the registry and I did not find any unusual entries in the registry as stated by the program. This was the first time I have seen the message after I reinstalled windows.After I decided not to sent the error report to microsoft the error disappered and after that till now I hav'nt seen the error again.

Answer:Windows has recovered from a serious error

Hi, firstly I would like to see that this problem is happens from time to time. This could be due to many reason, such as a service not responding, the pc crashing and someone manualy starts it up.
You should also be aware that using p2p software can be dangerous to your pc, it is your choice but sometimes people add all sorts of data on there.
I may be wrong to say this but using registry editors is not very good, you are better off without them.

If you want to make sure you don't get this error again

1) Make sure you have system restore on (incase you get this more often)
2) Go to microsoft.com and download the latest updates and service pack
3) Make sure that all the drivers on the system are up to date (click start then run and type devmgmt.msc) this should show all listing of drivers.
4) right click on you local disk hard drive which is located in my computer, click properties, click on tools, under error checking click check now, put a check mark against both items and it will ask to restart machine. Do so and the checkdisk will run, it time will depend on your size of hard drive
5) Run clean such ccleaner or going to accessories and using disk cleanup

Over the last few days, I have been experiencing problems with my IE recovering Tabs repeatedly; the Windows error box stating the System has recovered from a serious error and even shutting down with reboot. Sometimes it works ok with no problem, other times it does this every few minutes. The only thing I noticed was the date had reverted to January 2002. I have not noticed any other changes to programs or such that I can see- there are 6 users, I have the only admin account.I have done most of the basic things to resolve this- followed some of the help posts here. Today, when doing a disk check, the computer shut down and rebooted. It is here that I give up- I need some advanced help!

Hi, Victoria .I'm going to remove your DDS log data, it has no place in the XP forum and relates to malware procedures used by the BC members of the malware team. If you believe that you have a malware issue and want to initiate proper procedures for handling such...see Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/.Note that these procedures are for a different forum, so please don't post malware data/logs, etc. that might be requested...here in the XP forum.But...I think you may not have a malware issue.I suggest you try replacing your CMOS battery. When it starts to weaken, among other things...the system clock will move back, probably to something approximating the date of the original BIOS installed.This battery is available anywhere any batteries for electronics, radios, watches, etc. are sold...costs less than $4.CMOS Battery Replacement - http://www.liverepair.com/encyclopedia/art...cmosreplace.asp After replacing it, you will also have to reset the BIOS clock (which is the system clock) and date and save the changes in your BIOS. Then reboot and see if former problems are still present.Louis

Hello,I run an Edge E530c with the USB 3.0 Dock. This works fine until the notebook goes in power save. After resuming from power save the following happens:- If I click on any icon on the desktop the icon in the far left upper corner is always activated.- If I write any text in any application the cursors jumps to the left of the character, and any following character is typed to the left of the character before, i.e. I write from right to left. I cannot move the cursor to the proper position, neither with the cursor keys nor with the mouse. This issue is hilarious and kind of fascinating but completely blocks working with the notebook ! A restart cures this. Using the mouse pad and keyboard of the notebook itself works fine. This only happens with the USB 3.0 dock attached mouse and keyboard. Windows 7 Pro 64 bitLatest drivers via Windows update installed, also for the USB 3.0 dock. I searched all Google and did not find a similar problem description, far less a solution! Any hints from someone? Regards, Eckhard

Try booting in safe mode (hit F8 a few times before the XP logo appears), select Safe Mode or Safe Mode With Networking, if you get into Windows with no errors do a disk check , start menu/run, type `chkdsk c:`, then a system file check (have your XP CD handy) , startmenu/run, `sfc /scannow`.

Hail!
All,

First of all, I am Rosmark and I come from the Isle of Malta.

Secondly, well done for this helpful Forum.

Now, regarding my problem:

Well, I am running a Windows XP Professional Operating System with SP2 installed. Every now and then, I experience automated (without being informed/for no evident reason) restarts. I have recently followed a brief supposingly "fix" from another website, which basically tells you to disable the "Automatically restart" check box from System > Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Consequently, the error continued with the sole difference that instead of getting restarts, I am getting a stop-screen with a blue background and white text. Basically it says something like: "Page_default_in_nonpeged_area"... Then, as soon as the PC restarts (reaches the desktop), I get an error window, which is identical to this.

In any case, I tried following some resolutions from other websites (including MS), yet no success.

Well July 1st when I woke up I found that my computer restarted and said that it recovered from an unexpected error and I sent the data to Microsoft and they gave me this solution.

Solve a problem with your PC
You received this message because hardware or software on your computer caused Windows to shut down unexpectedly and restart. This is a serious problem, commonly referred to as a stop error or blue screen.

If you've received this error more than once, we recommend that you do the following:

Back up your files to avoid data loss in case of a complete hardware failure.

Contact the original manufacturer of your computer to determine the specific component which is failing.

How do I find my computer manufacturer?

Click the Start button , type msinfo32 in the search box, and then press Enter. Your computer manufacturer is listed as the System Manufacturer in the right pane of the System Information window.

Click to go online to see contact info for most computer manufacturers
Additional technical info

Although we know the problem is caused by a hardware component, the error report doesn't contain enough info to tell us the specific component. It's likely that the problem is being caused by one of the following computer components:

Random access memory (RAM)
System board
Central Processing Unit (CPU)
Power supply
