# Browsers + computer constantly crashing/freezing

Q: Browsers + computer constantly crashing/freezing

I have been good at keeping up with trying to keep my pc clean, but lately i seem to be having a ton of issues with my browser locking up and freezing. I am also having issues with my whole unit freezing as well, screen freezes, cursor doesnt move and have to hard restart the unit, i am unsure if it may be malware related or not. The unit is just having piss poor performance and i can not figure out why

here is my HJT log:

A: Browsers + computer constantly crashing/freezing

nothin?

1 more replies

For the last couple of weeks my computer has been running all sorts of slow, and I'm getting a lot of glitches I've never had before (recently, it appears to have shut down when I turn it off, but I find when I turn it back on it never went off in the first place, getting booted from browser consistently, etc). I also get an error message whenever I shut down about 'protector.exe' not being able to close, and when I tried to look it up I found only scary-sounding info from sites I don't exactly trust.
Anyway, not sure where to go with these problems, and I'm really hoping someone here can help. Thanks so much in advance for any input you can give!

Here's my HJT log:

ok so, i have no idea on how this happened. one day, i was playing a computer game (warcraft III if you must know, i'm sort of a dork in this way XD) and decided to minimize the game in order to open up windows media player to listen to some music. well, the minimizing took forever and eventually it froze. frustrated i turned the computer off. now, everytime i turn on my computer it will be stuck at the windows xp loading screen for around three minutes before going to the login screen. if i don't log in immediatly, it freezes. when i do log in a window will pop up saying i have recovered from a serious error. then, when i try to open ANY application, program, file etc., it freezes. the only way i am able to get online is in safe mode with networking, which is limited with no sound. i know this is not a virus because i have the program Deep Freeze 5 on my computer which is supposed to keep the computer at stock settings everytime i start up. i have tried using the system restore that XP provides but that has not worked. i do not want to have to re-install windows because the microsoft office i have is out of downloads and i do not have another. i currently have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and i belive i have windows XP 2001. please give me any advice possible, i really can't afford to get a new computer. I will get any other info requiered to help solve this problem.

Lately, I have been experiencing A LOT of problems with my computer. Programs frequently crash or run sluggishly. At times, my taskbar will crash and become frozen.

I have also noticed that I have a lot of process running (I am usually clocking in at somewhere around 45 processes). I have recently installed iTunes, which I can see has about 2 or 3 processes running at a time. I have also have recently run winUpdate and got some new files from that, but I don't know if that also has things running in the background.

I have ran CleanUp, AdAware, Spybot, and I have a Microsoft AntiSpyware constantly running in the background, so I don't think adware or spyware is the problem.

This is the only forum that I know of that can offer help for these kind of things, and you have proven to be very helpful in the past. If this is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Programs and computer constantly freezing or crashing... is spyware the problem?

One thing that could be causing your problems is the fact that you have both Norton And AVG running. You should never run two antiviruses at the same time. They conflict with each other and cause all sorts of problems as well as decrease your protection. You need to pick one and get rid of the other.

Also you need to disable some of those unnecessary apps you have running at startup. They are draining your computers resources.

Hi there,

I have had a few problems with my custom built computer. I believed at first that I had malware and virus issues, however a nice technician on the virus forums said there was no problem.

I am receiving the dreaded Blue Screen of Death fairly frequently, I am not playing any games, just browsing the internet when it happens.

Secondly, my browsers (both Mozilla 3.6.8 and IE 8) are both crashing very frequently - Mozilla comes up with a report message saying it has crashed and asks me whether to send or not to send the report, whereas IE reloads the tabs frequently, but to a point the page cannot be reloaded and has to be closed down.

As well as this, a lot of my executable files are crashing - I am getting error messages from things like java, flash, avg, my network card, windows messenger etc saying that they have crashed.

This problem is happening very frequently, I cannot seem to go half an hour without browsing with no problem.

If anyone could help it would be VERY MUCH appreciated!

Thanks.

A:BSOD, exe files constantly crashing, browsers crashing.

You need to post some hardware details about your custom built computer.
Something is unstable and it could well be the memory modules.

In addition, when you see a BSoD click details, it will generally state which executable caused the problem.

I would be tempted to look for a copy of memtest and run some memory diagnostics.

Okay, this problem's been plaguing me for a while. I'm unsure of whether or not it's a virus, or what--HJT logs have been inconclusive, as have all virus and malware scans. So.

Mainly, the problem is that my browsers--Firefox and, out of desperation, Internet Explorer--will bring up error windows, or just close.

For no reason whatsoever, Firefox will bring up a window giving me the option to report to Mozilla that it's crashed. Internet Explorer, after loading up the homepage or--with the will of God--one or two pages will bring up a window offering me the option to close or Debug. Both of these options do little more than close IE.

If anyone might have some insight into what could be causing this, please, I'm desperate.

A:Web browsers constantly crashing

8 more replies

Hi, probably for about the last week or so i've been browsing firefox, usually 4-5 tabs open at a time, then I get an error message saying something along the lines of firefox having low memory and I should close it.

Sometimes the error message can be ignored without any problems but sometimes firefox just closes without warning and I get that other "this is embarrassing..." error message that prompts me to restore my last firefox session.

I tried chrome as well and it's even worse - I'll open a page, maybe something with a ton of pictures like a sports page, and it just closes, no warning, just abruptly goes right down.

Now I never really looked at the task manager much prior to this but looking at it now, bother firefox/chrome use a lot of memory, several hundred MB for a few tabs, with overall memory usage hovering around 93% despite the browser being the only thing currently open. Not sure if this is normal.

Now I have noticed my computer fan being a little louder than usual (although that usually stops after an hour or so) so I'm wondering if it could be an overheating issue. I've had this computer for a few years and hate to say I don't maintain it as well as I should. Is my laziness finally catching up to me?

Thanks for any contribution.

A:Browsers constantly crashing - Low memory?

The latest version of Mozilla Firefox has a bug i myself got warning few times from Windows that computer was running out of RAM space and i should close programs to free RAM space when check the Task Manager it was Mozilla Firefox who was taking all of the free RAM space not much one can do except wait for next Mozilla Firefox upgrade version to be release hopefully this issue will be resolve with next version. You complain Mozilla Firefox take up lots of space even if there is no issue well visit Mozilla Firefox support website to find solution to Firefox taking too much RAM space. You should clean all dust and dirt from inside of your computer and fans also apply new thermal paste to CPU.

A:Windows 7 constantly freezing/crashing

Do some basic trouble shooting. This could be happening because of bad RAM or an underpowered Power Supply Unit. Download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature and burn the disc to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Remove all but one stick of RAM and boot off of the newly created CD and run the tests on each stick of RAM separately. If you get any errors, that stick is bad and needs to be replaced.
Thank you for providing most of your specs. Can you take a look at the PSU sticker and post the Make, Model #, and Wattage?

I have a Sony PGC-FX702 lap top which keeps freezing then crashing whenever it feels like it. I then have to turn the power off as ctrl+alt+delete doesn't work. When I turn the machine back on there is an error message prompting me to send an error report to Microsoft, which I do, but never get access to the error report. Any idea what could be wrong, I'm working on Windows XP?

A:Sony lap top Constantly Freezing & Crashing

You need to give your laptop to someone that has installed windows on their computer and tell them to reinstall windows xp. If the problem persists you may very well have a hardware problem (ram, faulty power supply, video card buggy).

Hopefully a reinstall of windows will solve the problem...

(since it sounds like the error occurs in microsoft internet explorer, I lean towards thinking it's a windows issue)

Today, both of my internet browsers keep freezing and crashing (Firefox 2.0.0.4 and Explorer v.6) After about 5 minutes or so, Firefox will freeze and I get the standard "Progran Not Responding" message. This happened several times to the point of frustration, so I resorted to IE. The same thing happened. I ran anti-virus (Norton Corporate) and my anti-spyware. They found nothing. I cleared my browser cache, cookies, temp. internet files, history, etc. I defragged my computer and uninstalled, then re-installed Firefox. I came to this site and installed SpyBlaster, all to no avail. I then went thru the whole "SEnd Error Report?" snafu, which tied up and eventually froze my computer. I must've unplugged it and re-started it 20 times today!Firefox keeps crashing on me even after re-installation, so I'm using Explorer, which is running ok...for now.What the heck is going on?!?

A:Big Problem With Browsers Freezing And Crashing

Hi shorty,Occasionally, when the Windows Firewall service on your Windows XP (SP2)-based computer is disabled, the Computer Browser service stops after five minutes and an error is logged in the Event Viewer System Log.Event ID: 7023 - Description: The Computer Browser service terminated with the following error: This operation returned because the timeout period expired.See this M$KB article for the resolution; When Windows Firewall is Disabled, the Browser Service Stops. 1 more replies Answer Match 69.72% I've been getting BSODs for quite some time now, random freezing and now Skype and Firefox have started to crash randomly when before it was perfectly fine.

My problem is all the web browsers/programs using the internet keep freezing/crashing. Everything can work fine for an hour or so then suddenly they simply "stop responding". Same thing happens with ie7, firefox and opera. At first I thought it was my isp or perhaps my modem but I have troubleshooted tested these already. Isp and modem work perfectly on my old p4 running xp. When I reboot everything goes back to normal again? Any idea's? cos I'm out! A:all web browsers/programs using internet keep freezing/crashing hi again, Well it seems I've solved the problem. I can't beleive I didn't think of it before, I failed to mention in my original post that I was using zonealarm as my firewall. Reading some other threads on this forum I noticed a couple of people saying zonealarm caused vista all sorts of problems. So I uninstalled zonealarm and hey presto all is fine again. I have been using zonealarm as my firewall and avast as my anti virus on my old computer for years so I thought nothing of installing both on my new computer, apparently vista really doesn't like certain programs and configs. As one post on this forum pointed out, you can't treat vista like xp, vista is indeed a whole different anaimal, one with which I'm unfamilar. I don't quite trust windows firewall if it's anything like the old one on xp, it is ok? or can anyone recommend a firewall that vista gets along with that works well! 2 more replies Answer Match 69.3% had this problem for awhile now, no matter what browser i was using...(firefox, chrome, internet explorer)... it crashed or froze up or hanged when trying to save a file....

It crashes with a blue screen at the "Windows Vista" loading screen with the bar, and then restarts, and then repeats. This was after I used System Mechanic to "optimize" my system by compressing the registry, optimising memory useage and defragmenting the drive (although I cancelled defragmentation mid-way). It keeps crashing over and over, or loads the desktop with just a black screen. When I try to use the Task Manager, it tells me that the application failed to initialize. The error message that I'm getting on the blue screen is: "disk.sys PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" It then does a "memory dump" before restarting, and doing the same thing over and over.

Then what usually happens is when I reboot the system it will fail to boot by staying stuck on windows loading screen or crash again a short while after I log in, this can usually be stopped by pulling the power and SATA cable out of my hard-drive, blowing on them, and putting them back in (weird?). Now what's even weirder is I have re-installed the OS several times, tried differen't OS's replaced the SATA cable and power cable as well as bought a whole new hard-drive but the problems persist. So im not sure what to do right now as sometimes the crashes cause the boot sector to go corrupt and cause me to have to format and re-install (a friggin pain in the ***).

Before we start, you need to realize that you are missing one important program on that computer: An antivirus. This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world. You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer. I recommend you download the free Avast or AntiVir orAVG antivirus Products from all three vendors received the Virus Bulletin's VB100% award and certification for virus detection from ICSA Labs.Never install more than one antivirus scanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give you problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously! I see that you are running msconfig in /auto mode which means that you may have selectively removed some items in the past from the startup procedure. This can be bad if they are malware, so we would like you to reenable those startup entries by doing the following:Please click on start, then run, and type msconfig and then press enter. When the window opens click on the startup tab and make sure there are checkmarks in every entry. Then press ok until you are out of the program. If it asks to reboot, do not reboot. It is not necessary to reboot to get the items to show up in HijackThis. Now please create a new Hijackthis Log and post it as a reply. 8 more replies Answer Match 63% Please help!

Computer is crashing in intervals due to infection. Every time it reboots, which it does on it's own, it gives me the option to reboot in safe mode as well as normal. I've tried running all sorts of mallware removal and nothing can seem to fix the problem. It originally started with a kernel error message, when my computer crashed the first 2 times, and then nothing.

So pretty much, I downloaded a file(movie to be exact). My Norton didn't catch anything. But after watching the movie, trying to use my computer for something else I noticed it was running a lot slower then usual. I was in a game that was full windowed so when I alt-tabbed to see if anything was going on in the background, my computer froze. No blue screen, it just froze. Alt+Ctrl+Del wouldn't work, nothing would. After restarting my computer it started up again, but again was real slow and after maybe 5 minutes it froze up like this again. So again I restarted it, this time it went into a startup repair that took several minutes. After it was finished it said it could not repair/complete, several corrupted and unreadable files on the hard drive. So I started up Windows again, and same thing. Slow use followed by the crash. So I restarted again, this time a message came up saying something like Sata 5-6 S.M.A.R.T. Disk Status: BAD(Or something similar to that). I told my friend who knows about computers, he told me my hard drive was bad, backup my files and get a new one. So I got a new hard drive(Old Hard Drive was a 1TB 7200RPM, SATA-II with 16MB Cache,New one is exact same except a 32mb Cache), backed up my files and installed it, and restored my files. That was yesterday, but after doing so I wasn't really able to use my computer until now. Again, when I started using it it got slow again then it crashed. Even though I replaced the hard drive.

My computer's problem is that all the programs and everything that's running suddenly freezes (programs, mouse, music, etc.) from time to time. Especially when I'm watching videos, usually on fullscreen, or on particular websites such as Twitter or those that take a while to load, are sluggish when scrolling through or have a lot of content. After it freezes, I would have no choice but to restart the computer. I tried formatting my computer, and installing the system on a new hard drive with plenty of space. I also cleaned out the dust from the CPU to make sure it's not over-heating, used a few programs and cleaned out the registry, deleted unused files and programs but nothing seems to work, the computer still freezes pretty often. After I formatted the computer, it started freezing less often and the blue screen where Disk Checking occurs stopped appearing whenever I had to restart my computer. Which means it helped a little bit to format the computer, but did not solve my problem. Hope you can help!

OK, well, to start with, thank you to everyone who tries to help me out with my issue, means a lot!

OK, so the issue is, my computer (recently) has decided to be a prick and at random times after start up (could be before i log in, could be in 4-5 hours) it will freeze up, nothing on the screen will load, all sounds will stop, and mouse wont respond, the only way to un-freeze it is to manually reboot the computer, it happened after i put a new graphics card in it, (nVIDIA GeForce 5500) i successfully installed the drivers and the card, and had fun with my semi-improved graphics, then came the freezing, i tried everything, even removing the card, removing everything about nVIDIA that was added, and system restoring to a factory reset. still freezing, any help once again is GREATLY appreciated, right now the card is OUT of the computer.

My dad has a computer with Windows XP on it which he runs his business off of and it is constantly freezing on him, let me get into more detail..

You will still be able to move the mouse around and you can maximize programs but once you do that you cant do anything more with them, and everything just eventually stops responding. The problem started out where the computer would freeze after being inactive for about 10 minutes, as long as he was at the computer doing something it would work fine but if he left it alone it would freeze.

Well we tried some things first to try and fix it, ran AVG but of course the computer froze during the scan. I tried to do a simple system restore, problem is the computer freezes during and it does not have time to finish it. So i went on to run a checkdisk (chkdsk /r) and had it run on startup, problem is the computer froze during the checkdisk aswell. After another day it starts freezing even when he is using it, first after about 10 minutes and now its down to 5 minutes tops. So since he has his older HDD in the computer still that he uses as extra disc space now I went ahead and booted off of that, its really bogged down like it was before he got his new computer but atleast it works. That one has a recovery console built into it so i booted off of that and ran chkdsk /r on his C drive (which ofcourse is the one we are trying to get fixed). Some problems found and repaired, great! Booted off of the drive it still freezes.

This issue just started yesterday morning. I woke up yesterday morning to find the computers monitor (which went into hibernation) and the CPU still running (apparently soeone other than myself was on the computer and left it on overnight). I should also mention that the internet was still running as well (internet provided by my cable company)

Because the computer was unresponsive, I had to manually shut it down and turn it back own. It booted up like it normally should, but then 15 minutes after starting it up (and while I was on the internet), it froze. The mouse would not respond, ctrl-alt-delete wouldnt work either, so again I had to manually shut it down.

However, when I tryed to start the computer again, my monitor would display a message such as "No Input Signal" and 5 seconds later would go to sleep. So I was forced to manually shut it down again. I would get this same error message 5 or 6 times before the hp splash screen would come up and load like it normally should. However, the computer would only last between 5-15 minutes before freezing up again.

Once I manually shut it down for the 10th time and turned it back on again, I got an error message about some DLL's were corrupted or missing which prevented Windows XP from loading normally. So I did a PC recovery, and got XP to run again, but the computer is still freezing.

I'm worried that the constant freezing and me having to manually shut it down would be causing more problems. I actual... Read more

Hello. I am having a very difficult time using my laptop. Dell Inspiron 6400.
About 1 mos ago my computer started to freeze up whenever I opened Mozilla, or up to the tool bar to change any options. The freezing would last about 30 seconds, after which things ran normal

I deleted Mozilla and started to use explorer, the problem surfaced there as well. I finally did a "dell restore" that solved the problem for a few days, but then the problems started again.

I have run memory check and the full dell diagnostics and everything comes up okay.

Now every time I open explorer up, my computer freezes for aprox 30 seconds. Also when the computer first loads up, it also freezes for aprox 30 seconds.

I did spybot, adaware, ccleaner and the trendmicro virus scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

thanks,

A:Computer constantly freezing

Hi Shadowraider and welcome to TSF

Sorry for the delay in getting to you, the forum has been really busy lately and all our helpers are volunteers

There is no set average for running processes as these will depend on the PC and the applications installed. They will constantly increase/decrease while the computer is running, as programs (including background processes) are opened/closed. e.g. I have 42 processes running with an open browser and notepad opened. The rest are system processes, anti-virus program, firewall, anti-spyware and a few programs I chose to run at startup. Some users will tweak the startups to get down to about 25 processes but that's usually not needed unless your computer is really slow to boot up or slow at opening programs or responding to user input.

I don't see any malware in your log but I will take a further look to make sure, however..........

I notice that you have more than one anti-virus programs on your machine (AVG & Symantec). That's not a good idea!!

This messes up the machine pretty badly. Alike firewalls, anti-virus programs have conflicts co-existing with each other & may produce undesirable results. Please uninstall ALL leaving only one of them.

ALL the antivirus programs must be removed via add/remove program.
For any program that doesn't have an add/remove entry, you will have to do this:re-install the program -> reboot -> uninstall## Do NOT proceed with the rest of the fix until you have resolved t... Read more

A:Computer Freezing Constantly

9 more replies

Hi:

For the last few weeks my computer has been freezing up on me constantly and I've had to restart it to get things back to "normal".

I know that various things cause your computer to freeze and thought that maybe that the fact that I haven't done a defrag in a while could be the problem.  I defragged last night and unfortunately, that didn't resolve my problem.

I've did a full scan with Dr. Web Cureit(took around 12 hours) back in late August and a few things were found which I deleted.  Then about a week or so ago I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and it found a few things and I thought that was that. I don't know what else to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

As far as the scan goes I'm in the dark about what could be the problem with my computer constantly freezing a couple of times every day.

As I said in my first incorrect post, during the last few weeks my computer has been freezing up on me constantly and I've had to restart it to get things back to "normal".
I know that various things cause your computer to freeze and thought that maybe that the fact that I haven't done a defrag in a while could be the problem.  I defragged last night and unfortunately, that didn't resolve my problem.
I've did a full scan with Dr. Web Cureit(took around 12 hours) back in late August and a few things were found which I deleted.  Then about a week or so ago I did a full scan with Malwarebytes and it found a few things and I thought that was that. I should also mention that there have been these error messages popping up for Norton every few days "Symantec Service Framework encountered a problem and needed to close".  When I typed in a search I came up with the following website http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH178798
I didn't install anything as I wasn't sure that I should.

Edit:

When I turned on the computer today (October 3, 2013) I had the following error message from Micros... Read more

Hello,

I am having a lot of dfficulty with my computer. Since a few weeks now, the computer will randomly begin to freeze. Sometimes right away after start, or when left inactive, other times it will work for hours then suddenly freeze up. I am not sure what the problem is. Last month I had trouble with my Ipod and had to reformat it, which led me to reinstall Itunes. Ever since then the computer has been crashing and I will have to restart everything.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

For a few weeks, my computer has been freezing a lot. I reinstalled drivers updated windows and software, tried everything, but is won't stop. No information related to the freezing is left in the event viewer, so I think it is a hardware problem.. My computer is less than 2 years old so a worn out hard drive is pretty much out of the question. The freezing usually, but not always occurs when the computer is working hard (serveral apps open at once, video editing, etc) and seems to occur more often when the computer has been on for a long time. The freezes usually happen every few minutes and it is driving me CRAZY! I want to pick up my computer and throw it at a brick wall because I can't get anything done! HELP! PLEASE! What is going on?! I think it could be a processor problem but I'm not good with hardware so I need help urgently! Thanks!

I have a Dell Inspirion Laptop that has begun freezing up. I spoke with someone that builds computers and he told me to run msconfig, which I did. I wasn't sure what to do once I got to that screen so I didn't change anything. Now, I can't get online and not much of anything will open.
Should I just re-install XP or use this laptop for a boat anchor?

For the past few weeks, my computer has just been constantly freezing every few seconds. I've run AVG, Spybot, and even downloaded and ran Norton...none found anything wrong with the computer. I also tried re-starting in Safe Mode and then re-starting again in regular mode as a friend suggested. Did nothing.

My laptop is a little over 1 year old. It's a Lenovo running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. Has an intel Core i5 processor, and is used only for internet browsing and video streaming.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5919 with Windows Vista. It has been freezing about every 30 minutes-1 hour. It started last night after i got a blue screen saying it was shutting down to prevent any damage. This occured while i was playing World of Warcraft and listening to Itunes. Im currently in safe mode with networking. It's not freezing while in safe mode. I also use AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Computer freezing constantly.

It may be shutting down due to overheating. Most laptops are not designed to be gaming machines. You can try using compressed air to blow dust out of the vents and see if that helps.

So I wanted to play with a virtual machine, and since Windows 8 has Hyper-v, I figured why not instead of installing VM? So I enabled virtualization in my bios, went to the Windows additional features, and enabled it all.

This is a new machine, I've had running for about 10 days now. I've had 0 issues crashing whatsoever, playing games, compiling code, anything.

So after I enable Hper-v it wants to restart, I let it. It restarts 4 times... Ok I think whatever, so then I get into windows, setup and select the ISO starts installing, gets to the point it asks windows 7 (which is what I was installing) to reboot and poof.. my computer is gone, no restart screen, no BSOD, just crashed. Get back in, go to hyper-v, it's running. I connect to it, boom, crashed. No BSOD, no nothing just down for the count. So at this point I've disabled virtualization, disabled hyper-v and will probably go to VMware unless someone has suggestions or help.

Computer specs: i5-4670k, 780 gtx, 16gb Patriot Viper Ram, Asus Z87-Plus motherboard with couple SSDs and storage drives, and an EVGA 750G Gold plus PSU.

Any idea why after enabling hyper-v (which, while Googling this issue supposedly enabling it is suppposed to reduce crashes that occur? At least according to some sites...) would cause this? There's no warning, no bsod, just pow computer off. I don't get it, my computer up until now has never crashed so I'm kind of not sure whats going on.

If it matters, I run 3 monitors, 2 on my Nvidia card... Read more

My laptop has been freezing a lot lately. All programs freeze up, I get "Computer Not Responding" when I ctrl,alt,delete. Once I close the extra programs I don't need to run, I will try to open Internet Explorer or Yahoo Messenger but nothing happens. When I attempt to restart the computer, it will shutdown to the "Sony Vaio" screen saver and then sit there until I manually turn off the power switch. Also, usually after about an hour or so, I'll get the so called "Blue screen of death" and am forced to restart my computer.

I'm not really sure what the problem is and obviously it's stemming further than this, but here's a HijackThis log for good measure:

it started a few months ago and at the time i just kind of ignored it cause i tend to procrastinate pretty much everything. but in the past few weeks i've actually been trying to fix this, and at first i thought it was just a trojan or some other type of malware. so as usual, i updated and ran spybot, but it came out clean and it still continued to freeze on me. i was adamant it had to be a trojan, so i downloaded AVG anti-virus which found and cleaned 6 trojans which i knew i had and i figured, problem solved. but it wasn't, it continued to freeze on me, no matter what i was doing. in fact the only time it really doesn't freeze on me is when i'm idle on my desktop not doing anything. so i googled frozen comps and have summarized that its either a temperature problem, a power problem, a memory problem, or a hard drive problem. so i opened my cpu and cleaned out the very little dust on the fans and made sure they were running properly, which they were, and left the bay door open just in case. yet it still froze. i made sure the power cord was firmly in it's socket and in the outlet and yet it still froze which led me to believe its an internal problem. so i cleaned up my registry and defragged my drives and yet it still froze. in fact it would freeze half way through my defrags. but the strange thing about my freezes i noticed, compared to other people's that i've read, is that when mine freezes, any music or sound thats playing continues to ...

A:My computer is freezing constantly and randomly.

For the past few weeks my computer has been acting up; a little slow and occasionally would freeze up. A couple of days ago, it started to freeze up constantly. It's a pretty new computer (about a year old.) It's a Dell Vostro w/ Windows XP Pro, Serv Pk 3, version 5.1.2600. When it freezes, Ctrl Alt Del does nothing. A few times when I'm trying to get it to unfreeze, it starts making a loud, uninterrupted buzzing noise, something I've never had happen before.

I have no idea where to start to figure out what's causing this. I don't know if any of it's relevant, but here's some more info on the computer and what I've checked:

Memory

Total Physical Memory 3072 MB
Avail " " 2.34 GB
Total Virtual Memory 2 GB
Avail " " 1.96 GB
Page file space 4.84 GB

I also checked the following and it says OK, anywhere that it says STATUS; HARDWARE RESOURCES, (DMA, I/O, IRQ's, Memory,) COMPONENTS, and SOFTWARE.

I have just about had it with my computer, honestly. Just recently, in the past month or so, my computer has started putting my wifi into limited. For no reason. Yes, I have tried all the fixes on the main post. Yes, I've turned off the 'allow disabling' of it. It just is a mess.  Not only will it go to limited, but it will completely hard lock my computer (but only sometimes) I didn't really connect the two until recently, because I realized it always happened once the limited showed up on my wifi. I have no idea what's causing it. I've made sure it's no viruses, and I still have no clue. I really want to fix this.  Thank you.

So yesterday I downloaded a torrent, and, stupidly, when I went to watch the video after I'd downloaded it, it told me I had to download something to get it to work, so I did. My Firefox browser then opened a bunch of different tabs, and then the computer got a blue screen involving "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL." It then restarted, and when I tried to log in again, the same same blue screen came up and crashed the computer again.

It then started to work the next time I logged in, but my Norton Anti-Virus kept telling me that I was being attacked, from something originating in "firefox.exe", and that it had been blocked from doing so. I then uninstalled Firefox and installed Google Chrome, but Norton kept telling me I was being attacked. The difference is that this time I was being attacked by "svchost.exe". I have attached a picture of the message Norton sent me.

So now whenever I log on, I keep getting these same messages from Norton, and every so often, when I go on the internet, Norton tells me that whatever browser I am using at the time, its .exe file is also attacking my computer.

I also got an error report type thing that told me what happened during the last crash:

Startup repair has done nothing, and I'm stuck in a rut since I lost the password to my account on the PC a couple years back and have no idea what it is. I highly doubt it's a virus or malware since McAfee hasn't alerted me to anything, and in the past couple of days the only website I can remember visiting is Microsoft support for Xbox help, anyways, I believe Fallout 3, which I recently installed, and isn't optimized for Win 7, is the root of my problems. It was working without trouble until today, it crashed on startup and I restarted my computer, but got a BSoD while it was logging in. Startup repair said that unspecified changes to system configuration might've cause the problem. But, if I can access my hard drive and uninstall Fallout 3 I'm moderately confident that the problems will subside. Thanks.

Now, I'm using windows 7, and I've been getting these constant crashes and bluescreens for a few months now, it happens at least once a day and sometimes up to 4 times a day.

I have tried everything. I've run memory tests. I've formatted and re-installed windows. I've stress tested my computer to the point where I didnt have any ram left or CPU usage ( turned on a ton of programs to see if it would burn itself out for some reason ) and so far, everything has come out clean, but it just keeps going.

Yesterday I decided to just take a look inside the computer so I took everything apart and cleaned it, put it back together and it continued to crash and be a ****.

Then I noticed that my GFX card was giving a bit of noise so I did this thing where you open it up and put some oil in the fan to make it run smoother, that worked but it has done nothing for my crashing issues.

These problems started happening after my little sister unplugged my computer by accident and after that it takes the computer a while to get past the loading screen for the motherboard ( the blue one that just says the type of motherboard I have ) and, ofcourse, the aforementioned bluescreens and DWM( Desktop window manager ) crashes.

Now, I'm begging you. I NEED HELP. I'm going nuts! If you would like the bluescreen information, then I'd be more than happy to send you the .dmp files that have been popping up =).

The clock will freeze but the mouse wont, and the screen is usable for a couple minutes but then is not, and a forced shutdown is the only way to unlock. I have posted below the DDS, however the gmer wouldn't work it kept having to close, if you know a way around this please let me know. I have posted a hackthis file as well in the zipped folder. One of the things my virus scan picked up was exploit:html/repl.D but when i tried to remove it wasnt found. Please let me know if i can provide any more info. I have a dell inspiron e1505. Thanks.

I am not extremely computer literate. Mostly just an avid googler so bear with my lack of information or expertise.
My problem is that my computer keeps blue-screening and restarting. There is no correlation between what I am doing and the restarts. Sometimes I am using my computer during them and sometimes I get up to use the bathroom and come back to the login screen and an error message.
My hardware is decently old, probably 5 years. I have not taken it apart or messed with any internal components in the last month. I use my computer mostly for internet browsing and homework. Nothing very taxing. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi, my computer freezes when I'm using it throughout the day. Sometimes it will freeze up to five times in a three hour span. It usually occurs when I am tampering with media or opening multiple browsers. When the computer is idle, it does not freeze. Here is my log. (attached) Thank you for any help or feedback. Likewise, when I run a system clean up from the C drive, it will freeze.

I tried starting my PC in Safe Mode and it gives me the options to select Safe Mode or Safe Mode Network, etc.... problem is, when I start in Safe Mode a bunch of Windows filenames appear and it never starts up in Safe Mode. ....? Any reasons for a computer to freeze all the time like mine? I have a Virus Scanner and no viruses have been detected.

Recently I was working on SPSS (a stats database) modifying one file over several weeks and saving changes several times per day. One morning I tried to bring my computer out of hibernation mode, as usual, but it said there was a problem and I would need to delete the restoration file inc order to resume. Since I had saved my data so often, I agreed. When my computer restarted the file was reverted back 2 weeks. I have since learned that SPSS files don't create temporary files, but still I was saving continuously so this was very strange. No other files were impacted (none were open either though). Since this time my computer freezes several times each day - every time I leave it sit. It's like it cannot come out of 'hibernation mode'. At the time of my problem, I went to run my Sophos virus software but it wouldn't start?? I then installed Microsoft's free virus program and following that avast! antivirus (based on someone's recommendation). I have run Malewarebytes too and only a couple small (apparently insignificant files, as per another IT forum user) were detected. Another issue is that my taskbar freezes too when my computer freezes. Bottomline I have two questions: (1) should I just reinstall my OS to fix these problems? and (2) I bought a new computer (as I CANNOT lose anymore of my PhD work!) and I am scared to move over my necessary files, as I worry there is an undetected virus that could affect my new computer. How can I be sur... Read more

Hello,

I've recently been having issues where my computer will stop responding at random times. I haven't yet noticed a pattern, but the most recent issue happened when I opened Facebook. If I'm playing music when the freeze happens, it starts sounding creepy and machine-like, with high-pitched noises and other strange sounds. Other windows stop responding and I can't use my computer for about 30 seconds. I'm not sure if this is Malware related or not. I haven't been to any malicious websites or downloaded anything, but I don't know what else the problem could be.

Also, I'm running Windows 7 on an HP dm4x series laptop. I believe drivers are up to date and updates are installed to Windows.

Thanks!

Below are HJT and DDS logs. I will upload a GMER log when I can, but the scan was taking a long time.

Hi there guys I've been having what has to be the most frustrating freezes on startup in all history. I have this freeze that will happen on pretty much any mode that isnt PURE safe mode. Meaning that if I load up in Safemode Networking this freeze will happen there as well. But what happens is this
The comptuer starts up and gets to the windows 7 loading screen. I'll Try to login, at which it attempts to load up everything VERY slowly. At this point I'm at a bit of a time limit. If my pc doesnt fully load up in a certain time frame it will freeze. Whlie it's loading everything loads up slowly and I have a very small amount of time to load up an MP3 file. If I dont load up a song to play within this time frame and loop it infinitely, my comptuer will freeze without question at least 95% of the time. 5% of the time it MIGHT load up completely. But so far the load up mp3 loop forever trick is the only thing preventing my comptuer from freezing (If I can get that far).

As it stands i have no idea what is causing this problem, it's so bizarre... Please help!

Basically what the title suggests. My computer will work fine for varying amounts of time when streaming video (watching movies, skyping, etc) but eventually the computer starts running sluggish until it virtually freezes. This problem doesn't seem to be nearly as bad when I'm streaming movies or tv shows, but when it comes to skyping this problem has been a nightmare. I'm at the point where I can't skype someone for more than 10 minutes before my computer freezes. Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be awesome.

I have a custom built computer that seems to have something wrong. It is constantly freezing, mouse getting stuck and just not seeming right. I has a GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD4-B3, I5-2500K, 120 Crucial SSD and many other Mechanical drives installed.

I had Windows 8 Pro installed and noticed the problems starting. I then installed Windows 7 thinking it maybe software, but problems persisted. What faulty hardware could it be and what tests should I start running. Memtest, what hard drive test is there for the SSD where the OS is installed. Appreciate some help on this issue.

My computer has been freezing for a while and I haven't thought anything of it until recently when it started to freeze multiple times a day. Sometimes I would be doing something and other times I wouldn't be doing anything and it would just freeze. I've searched but I don't know what the problem is. All I know is that the light that blinks orange whenever I'm doing something goes away. Please help I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!

A:Computer freezing constantly random times

The very first issue can be that your system is running beyond it's hardware specifications. This occurs when getting too numerous programs running at the same time. If the amount of RAM in your system cannot handle it then your computer will freeze. The simple solution for this is to run fewer programs or buy additional RAM.

Some folks ask - what if windows 7 crashes when I only run a particular program? In this case you might need to update your drivers or system. Often times compatibility issues could cause your computer to freeze up. You can check the Microsoft Windows website for the latest updates.

If windows 7 freezes at random, then this problem should be relates to the registry. When the Windows registry is full of errors it can stop your system from properly running. The registry contains the information of your computer which is used to communicate between the OS, software, and hardware devices. When the registry becomes congested with errors, the communication procedure breaks down.

The recommended solution for this sort of Windows 7 freezing would be to clean the registry of corrupt files and various errors. Not just will this prevent pc crashing, it will also speed up your system considerably.

My computer has been freezing frequently with a weird clicking sound on the speakers. Its been messed up for a while now. Before I couldn't even start it in normal mode and had to use safe mode just to use it. I managed to fix it by using system restore, but the freezing and clicking haven't stopped. I would just start it like normal and do the usual stuff on the computer, and after ten minutes or less it would freeze. If you need any info, please ask. I really need help!! I've had many problems with this computer, twice I had to have it taken in to be reformated. I'd rather not do that again so please, if you have any ideas that could help me, please post!

So yesterday I downloaded a torrent, and, stupidly, when I went to watch the video after I'd downloaded it, it told me I had to download something to get it to work, so I did. My Firefox browser then opened a bunch of different tabs, and then the computer got a blue screen involving "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL." It then restarted, and when I tried to log in again, the same same blue screen came up and crashed the computer again.

It then started to work the next time I logged in, but my Norton Anti-Virus kept telling me that I was being attacked, from something originating in "firefox.exe", and that it had been blocked from doing so. I then uninstalled Firefox and installed Google Chrome, but Norton kept telling me I was being attacked. The difference is that this time I was being attacked by "svchost.exe". I have attached a picture of the message Norton sent me.

So now whenever I log on, I keep getting these same messages from Norton, and every so often, when I go on the internet, Norton tells me that whatever browser I am using at the time, its .exe file is also attacking my computer.

I also got an error report type thing that told me what happened during the last crash:

Hello,

I've recently discovered that my computer has been running slow and that both Firefox and Internet Explorer crash when I visit certain sites (LordsofPain.Net & [email protected]). I suspect that these problems come from a common source. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need any additional information, feel free to let me know and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Also, I've been having another problem whenever I insert a disk with a PDF file on it, I get this message:

Your version of {No Pconfig} can read files on this disc but you will not be able to edit or add to them.

I thought this might also be related to the problem.

My computer is constantly freezing up. On start-up things seem fine, but after a few minutes, I am unable to interact with anything cause the cursor indicates something is trying to load, but never does and then freezes.So I have no choice but to turn off my computer. I really need help, I am trying to avoid having to do a clean install, I don't know how to backup things properly, and Im afraid I will have to re-install alot. This is my first time on a forum like this and I need specialized help. Before I go on, here is all the list of things I have tried to tried to fix the problem with:

-Disk Check
-Disk Defragment
-System Restore (no restore points)
-Virus Scan with Mcafee and Malware Bytes (viruses/malware was found and removed, but problem persists)
-Last good Configuration

I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking and everything is fine there luckily.
Now I think I might know what the problem is, but I need to know how to fix it. In the Event Viewer, I see several errors:

-Ntp Client was unable to set up a manual peer to use as a time source cause of DNS resolution error on 'time.nist.gov,0x9. The error was: no such host is known (0x80072AF9)

-The shadow copies of Volume C: were aborted cause of an IO failure on volume C:

-The shadow copies of Volume C: were aborted during detection because of a critical control file could not be opened

-Audit events have been dropped by the transport. The real time backup file was corrupt due to improper shutdown
