Q: Solved: Computer Freezing up - Hijackthis log

Hi,
My computer has been freezing up something awful. I can't download any programs or updates for any other programs. When it freezes the Task manager freezes as well and I have to manually shut down the computer.
I have Win XP Pro SP2. I use Firefox as my main browser. I have Norton, Spybod S&D, Spysweeper, CWShredder and have run them all and they all come back clean.
Any help would be mightily appreciated!
Thanks, Wendy

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

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

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

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

Disk Cleanup:

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

Defrag your HD:

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

Run chkdsk:

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

Remove unnecessary startups

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

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

You will be prompted to ... Read more

Hi! My computer is very slow booting up and has drastically slowed down (or freezes) navigating between files/programs, opening and closing programs, etc.... I recently re-installed Microsoft Office 2007 and shortly before that had to re-install Java as well. Java Applets were not loading and running. Last time I had both of these programs installed, both seemed to cause the same problem- slowed common functions down (issues mentioned above) or froze. So, I decided to run HijackThis to see if the problem could be found. Any help you can give it appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!!

My computer has been doing strange things lately:

First it kept restarting itself and running scandisk microsoft said the problem was related to AOL. I have since reinstalled the AOL software and that problems seems to be better, but not sure if it just hasn't happened again.

Next, my computer has crashed several other times this week and online crash analysis from microsoft have told me several things. One was related to a Memories disc AFS/AFS2k driver, which I have no idea about, but installed some download it recommended to fix it--hopefully I will not recieve that error again.

Now my computer keeps freezing, to the point where I have to hold the button in and turn it off to get the computer working again at all. When I turn the computer back on, it of course runs scandisk, I got some other crash anaylsis yesterday about some driver, but of course before I could fix the problem or save the response, my computer froze again. This has happened like three more times since, but this time with no error logs from microsoft, the computer just starts back up.

I ran spybot, adaware, and a Mcaffe Virus scan all came up clean.
So I thought if no one has any other suggestions why my computer is doing this to me I would post a hijack this log and see what someone more knowlegable might find.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

I have webroot spysweeper (purchased at office depot), zone alarm firewall, and symantec anti-virus. I've also downloaded bazooka and spy hunter free anti-spyware. none of the anti-spyware programs shows anything except: spy hunter shows "seekseek" in a certain registry location, but will not remove it without my buying the full software. I looked around and found instructions for removing seekseek myself, and based on that it looks like I don't have it: the files I am supposed to remove are not on my computer, either in the places they say they should be, or, based on a search, at all; and the registry entries I am supposed to change aren't there either. Is this a scam to get me to buy the software, or is the seekseek program sometimes in different places and in different forms than what I read?

of course, i get a dozen or more e-mails every day with virus attachments on them. I never open them, and often get the notification windows asking me what to do. I always choose to delete the attachment, then i delete the e-mail altogether and then empty the deleted items folder.

I particpate in several list serves, and sometimes open attachments, but of course not if there's been a warning the attachment is infected.

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:

So around a month ago i was trying to download an audiobook torrent for the book 'the road'. i clicked the torrent (i wasn't on pirate bay) anyway my computer went nuts from there, for the last month my computer has been extremely slow. I have since downloaded Malwarebytes, HyjackThis, and McAfee. Their is one Trojan that Malwarebytes has been unable to delete, even upon restart. I have also run pandasoft scans, however my computer freezes generally 30-45 min after being turned on. So i haven't gotten the results from that in a few weeks...but when i ran it last night it was saying at 13% of completion it had found 16 suspicious things.

I just completed another Malwarebytes scan, and i will paste it on below my HyjackThis log. Thank you VERY much, if you can figure out what i should do i would greatly appreciate it!! Thanks so much!!

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

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

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

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

System specs are:

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

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

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

Solutions I have tried:

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

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

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

My PC keeps freezing up. I have to reboot to be able to use it again. The only way I can reboot is by holding the power button down as the task manager or shut down option will not appear when requested. My machine will freeze up after using it for 45 minutes or so...however if the machine is idle for longer periods without being used it does not freeze until their is actual usage on the machine then it will freeze up again after about 45 minutes. Here is my HijackThis log....any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

OK, heres my next problem - My desktop runs fine for about 15 minutes after startup...then freezes. Nothing works, except the restart button, or unplugging it.
This happened a while ago, and I found that my CPU was quite warm from running all the time. My solution was to open it up, clean all the dust out and it ran ok, but soon was back to freezing up.
My second solution was to remove the side panel from the CPU permanently, and replace it with a dust filter (like on a furnace). My thought was the system was getting too hot and freezing up.
THAT WORKED GREAT, for about 8 months...now im back to freezing. I have cleaned the inside, replaced the filter...but nothing works.

Is it the heat, or something else. I have cleaned all the caches, cookies, defragged, etc...and it still freezes. HELP!!!

Need some help.

I tried the search function, but it seems to be not working right now..

Computer keeps crashing randomly after XP boots. Sometimes it will last 1 minute, sometimes it last 30 min(mostly in the 5 min range). The screen feezes and you can see the screen, but nothing works....ctrl/alt/del doesn't work. Reset button doesn't work nor can I shut it down with the on/off buttom(need to hold power button to shut off, then power back on).

I have replaced the hard drive(brand new OS). It has onboard video, so I added a different(working)AGP card. But still no go. I replaced the ram, but nothing has changed. The power supply is still running, as is the CPU fan.

Could anyone suggest anything else that I might be missing┐

Thanks

A:Solved: Freezing Computer

You have probably wasted a bunch of money on shotgun repairs. Far better to analyze and test first.

From your description, you very probably have a hardware problem.

The first thing you want to do is make sure your jumpers are set correctly on the drives. You should have one master and one slave drive on each IDE channel.

Once you are sure that the drive jumpers are right, you need to test memory. Don't randomly swap memory (yet), just test it. Get a memory test utility such as memtest86 and give it a try.

It could be that the memory test utility will refuse to run or the system will crash while testing. If this happens then it probably is not your memory. If the memtest runs without crashing and reports memory errors, proceed accordingly. If the memtest runs and reports no errors and there are no crashes, run it again. And again.

If the memtest crashes or the system locks up, or whatever, then you are down to what I suspect is the problem anyway; either a bad voltage regulator on the motherboard or a bad power supply. In this event, the most likely problem is the motherboard but unless you have an oscilloscope you won't be able to tell for sure.

You should use a voltmeter to check the power supply voltages; if they are all in spec, most likely the problem is the motherboard. If any of the PS voltages are out of spec, then you could have a PS problem as well. If you have an oscilloscope, monitor the voltages on the power supply for awhile to see if there are ...

I've had a lot of lockups lately and I'm trying to find out what is causing them. The computer completely freezes up, no blue screen or black screen, just an unresponsive computer accompied by a high pitched squeal coming out of the speakers (if a sound was playing at the time). CTRL+ALT+DELETE does nothing and the only solution is to reset the computer. The lockups can happen anytime, although in general the more work the computer is doing the more likely it is to lockup. Simple things like surfing the net produces lockups only rarely, watching video clips cause lockups often (depending on the file format), and video games cause the computer to freeze almost always, yet a few games do not.

I have checked for viruses, spyware, and adware; reinstalled drivers; scanned/defragged disk; cleaned up startup menu; ran memtest86 - yet none of this has helped at all. This has led me to believe that I am dealing with a hardware problem.

Using several different methods I determined my CPU temperature at idle to be 56-60 degrees celsius. So could this be the cause of the lockups?

I opened the case and tried using another fan but the temperature did not drop significantly. On closer inspection I noticed that inside the CPU fan is abosultely filthy and seems to be almost completely plugged with dust, although the fan is still running at about 5000rpm. I would guess that this is a big reason why the CPU is so hot. Thus, the question is - what is the proper method for cleaning ... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Computer keeps freezing

This is most likely caused by overheating. Clean all dust out of the machine inside (Desktop) with a can of compressed air. If it is a laptop do the same on the outside clean all air vents with a can of air. Also look into BIOS and look at all temps readings and voltage readings and brand and model of your PSU.

Hello all.

I had Windows XP SP3 and the files were messed up, a lot files, etc.
I decided to format it, the same OS and SP.
(Specs: P4 2.4GHz, 1GB RAM, 128MB AGP NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000)

However after I formatted it, the Windows couldn't run programs, even that I had the NET Frameworks installed and updated, did Windows Update and installed all updates, the programs wouldn't open - error message 0x000005, even I couldn't install flash player. I couldn't open Internet Explorer and softwares that were IE depended, crashed while working. I figured out the error message 0x000005 was because of critical Windows files wasn't copied successfully - possibly corrupted.
What I did then, I formatted again the computer. Now programs are working fine and I don't get error messages / don't send's
Well, the problem now is... computer keeps freezing. Randomly when I'm browsing internet, playing games (which they are unplayable because it freezes every few seconds) and performing other tasks.

I really can't figure out why. I tried cleaning with CCleaner, tried to check for disk errors - failed to do.

Also after the first and second format - on the Startup dir. there was folder "Windows" description "0" and location %appdata%\Windows\sidebar.exe - about 64 MB. There was another file in registry startup - imc.exe about 1 MB. These two files were all same description except the size. Even the icons were same. I did a sca... Read more

Hello guys and I'm new to this website forum. I've been having a problem ever since i installed a new motherboard and processor and new memory. My computer seems to freeze whenever i try to run final fantasy xiv benchmark test or windows experience index. I haven't tried to run any video games because I thought it would freeze anyways. I thought it was because I didn't install a fresh new windows 7 so I rebooted my computer and the problem still occurs. I'm trying to get it to work in order to play video games. I have updated everything from video card to bios to drivers for everything. Could this be the fault of a defective motherboard? or memory sticks? or overheating? Plz help

My specs are:
MB Name:Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.H77M-D3H
CPU Name : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Memory information :Total physical memory 8153 MB Corsair XMS3
OS information :Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit version
Power Supply: Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W
Video card: GTX 670

I have not done memtest yet. i will after i get back from work. Do you guys think it is because i don't have a good enough power supply?
 

A:Solved: Computer freezing

Yeah that's what I would do. Check the memory with a test and do some other simple things like reseating the memory and possibly the video card as well.

Hi

Ive just recantly bought a new system to replace my old 1 which had developed a problem where after an hour of being on it would freeze up. My Video card was fairly new so I didnt buy a new card but insted transfered this 1 over. I got my new system today and installed the card, installed windows, updated the drivers and everything I can think of but now the system will freeze after about a minute unless im running in safe mode.
It may be an obvious question but would my video card be to blame for this?

Thanks for any help.

-NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB 16X PCI Express [-71] (EVGA Powered by NVIDIA
-Xion 600w Power Supply

What can I do?

A:[SOLVED] Computer Keeps Freezing

Hi Adam


Assuming that your system temps are under control (of course check those), my first suspicion would be the power supply. I believe Xion is a fairly new vendor, so there's not a lot of track record to go on. A few of the buyer reviews for the Xion 600wt 'supernova' supply mention problems with ripple-effects, and lockups --- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ting=-1&Page=2

The overall reviews are favorable enough, however. Should you have a good-quality extra supply around of sufficient wattage, see if a swap changes anything.

Can't hurt to double check in EventViewer (in Administrative Tools in the Vista Control Panel) for any errors that coincide with the lockups. It doesn't sound like software, though -- more likely it's a hardware problem.

Best of luck
. . . Gary


P.S. ... most of the advice I've read in gaming mags like MaximumPC advise trying to do your heavy gaming in XP if possible, or - if in Vista - use the 32-bit version, since the 64-bit drivers & program compatibility are going through pretty awful growing pains.

I bought some EMTEC CD-RW Discs and the first three formatted ok for data, Ive been trying to format the last two but the whole system freezes and will not use ctrl alt delete to restart, I have to pull the plug.
Ive tried another make of CD RW- Samsung- but still get the same problem so it's not the disks.
Two new disks of a different make contain the contents of MY Documents, or they did but when I try to open them all I see are blank folders, the contents seem to have disappeared, although the properties box shows used space.
When a new CD is put in the drive I automatically get the format screen to choose which type of disc I want, the same problem occurs no matter what type I choose.
Tech support suggested updating the drivers but they seem to be already up to date, I have a HP Pav 8670, the cdrw is a CD Writer Plus using Adaptec Direct CD. TEAC CD W54E Firmware 1.1c shows on the Devise Manager.
Any help appreciated.

They are ussualy for sites like broadcaster.com or alot of ads are for antivirus software.. ironic isnt it. I have fully scanned my computer with AVG, but it still has the same problems.

"Performed illegal operation and will be shut down."
details:
"Explorer caused an invalid page fault in module KERNELL32.DLL at 016f:bff9db61"

When I restart the speed is ok but then will go downhill to the point where these 2 messages will constantly appear.
Also today a message saying that the system was "dangerously low on resources and I should shutdown the program" appeared. I only had 1 program open.
Any suggestions where to start please.

Hello,

I have been having alot of problems with my computer freezing up. I took it to the computer repair shop and it lasted 3 weeks then started freezing up again. I went online and found something by Microsoft on doing certain checks on your computer to find out what the problem is.

One of them is this, Im copy a pasting it:

Step 3: Perform SFC Scan.
Steps to perform sfc scan:
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.
2. Click Continue or supply Administrator credentials if prompted.
3. In the Command Prompt window type the following, and press Enter:
sfc /scannow

When I had the computer repair shop reprogram my computer with Windows XP etc I told them I wanted to be able to skip the logging on bit and just for it to automatically log on. The problem now is that when Im saying to follow the directions above from Microsoft, there isnt anything there when I right click the cmd thing on Accesories that says log in as Administrator.

So when I try to do this sfc scan, it says in a window that pops up "Current User" Blah blah blah, some long name that is checked... and below it it has the option to check something else to log in as... but I dont know how to do that or if I even can do that since I told them to just make it where it skipped all that.

Is there another way to perform this sfc scan? What does it mean, anyway? I tried doing the defrag and clicked 'analize' and it said ... Read more

Hi All,
Just need some help with my computer. I've had this problem about a year after i built it back in 2002. The computer would usually freeze for no reason. I've tried everything i can think of. I thought it was the power supply so i changed it, but still freezes. i thought it was the RAM but its still freezes. I've formatted so much times with no luck. I've looked everywhere on the net on what the problem might be. The last thing i'm thinking it can be is the motherboard. I leave my computer on pretty much 24/7, so is it possible the it is heat related?? I've tried to leave the case open last night but still have the same problem.

My spec's are:
Soltek - SL-85DRV3, 256MB DDR RAM, 2 Hard drives (80GB maxtor master 1, 120GB maxtor slave 1) NTFS format, a cd burner (slave 2), a pioneer 111D dvd burner (master 2), 128MB geforce graphic card, Leadtek TV turner card, nic card, one 8cm case fan, 400W power supply.
I'm running Windows XP Pro.

It doesn't happen anytime in particular like when i'm doing high end graphic stuff, its just happens randomly. Like i can just leave it over night and wake up and see that it has freezed. Please help, its driving me crazy... Thanks for anyones help

Can anyone please help, I cannot get my pc to boot up, it just seems to freeze on start up, I have XP Pro installed.
 

A:Solved: Computer freezing when booting up

Start your computer, tap F8 while it is booting up. Choose Safe Mode from the menu that should appear. Select the administrator account. On the Safe Mode desktop click on Start\Run. Type msconfig in the Run dialogue box. Click OK. When the System Configuration Utility comes up put the system into Selective Startup. Uncheck Load startup items. Click on the Services tab. Put a check in the box that says Hide all Microsoft services. Uncheck anything left on the services list. Click the Apply button and then the Close button. Reboot and see if the system will start.

During the past week any time I've tried to view videos on the internet the use the Flash player (like youtube) the video just starts to slow down after about 10 seconds and eventually my whole computer just freezes up. At first I thought it was my internet conection because periodically it slows down but the problem has persisted and everything else on the internet loads just as fast as ussual. It just seems to be Flash player related because I've watched several DivX videos and they load just fine. I downloaded and re-installed Flash but it didn't help. I cleaned my registry, ran norton to check for viruses and even ran a program that searches trojans and malware but it came up with nothing. From what I can tell everything seems to be fine. If anyone can help me with this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

A:[SOLVED] Computer Freezing During Videos

make sure the pc has enough RAM to cope with the requests (video playing) & that your graphics card or board drivers are correctly installed. Use www.driveragent.com to scan your pc.
You may need codecs to run the videos too? grab the K-LITE codec pack (search it) or try www.download.com

I hope that helps :)

Hello!

My friend is having some problems with her computer and I'm posting here on her behalf.

The computer is somewhat slow overall and Windows doesn't seem to be able to update itself properly. At some point during use the computer tends to freeze up completely and has to be restarted by holding down the power button.

She had some similar problems way earlier, which were seemingly fixed by re-installing windows. At that time we ran memtest, furmark, prime95 as well as some HDD self tests to see that it wasn't a hardware problem.
I thought the problem might be with her hard drive breaking down (I've had the same model break twice and my other friend had his HDD of the same model breaking as well), but I thought that I'd ask here first. Her antivirus and malware scans come up clean.

I don't remember her specific specs, but I can ask for those if they are needed. These are what I remember from the top of my head:

Asus P8P67
Intel i5-2500K
8GB DDR3 1600MHz
Nvidia GTX 560 Ti

WinXP Home-IE6-Outlook Express 6

My computer screen is freezing up 3-4 times a day over the last few days. The arrow will not move at all or it disappears from the screen entirely. I have to close the computer at the tower and then reboot. Everything works fine for awhile and then it will freeze again.

I ran AVG 7.5 this morning manually activating it and the full scan showed no virus or other problems! Also ran 1-Click maintenance and TuneUpUlilities 2007 and nothing irregular was found. I have SP3 and someone told me to remove the program because some computers don't react well with SP3 but during the removal process, it showed a number of programs that I have on my computer and noted that removing SP3 may affect the way these programs work so I aborted the removal for now.

Any ideas or comments on how to handle this problem or repair?

Thanks,

I've been experiencing freezing issues with my computer for a few days now and it's becoming extremely frustrating as I am a student. I have a Toshiba Satellite, running Windows 7. After logging in, my The Weather Channel app will load and everything seems to be normal. It seems like I can make one action, whether that is closing the weather app or clicking on an icon. After making that one single action my computer will suddenly stop responding. I can move the mouse cursor but cannot click on anything and nothing works! Even when I press ctrl+alt+delete, it sometimes will not respond to that. When it does and I attempt to start the task manager, it won't load that either!

Recently I had installed Avast Free Antivirus while still having Trend Micro Office Client as well. Could this be the issue? I've tried to uninstall certain programs but can't even get to that point before my computer quits on me. Extremely frustrating! Please help!

Hey,
So I just got a brand new computer in the mail. Hooked it all up and everything. Seems to be working great. Then i try to go online, The computer freezes up. No response from mouse, keyboard or anything just the frozen screen. Initially I think it might be an internet problem, but after a few more reboots and startups, the computer just seems to freeze whenever. Sometimes as I'm logging in, sometimes even on the Bios screen at the beginning of startup. The computer is running Vista Home Premium 64bit, 8 gigs of RAM, a 900 gig hard drive, and has a NVIDIA 9800 GT, the motherboard is a Asus P5N-D. If theres anything anyone can think of as an issue it would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I think it might just be a hard drive malfunction or something.
Thanks for any feedback.

Hello,

Recently I cleaned out my case and decided to change the way one of my cables was routed.
After reassembling the case I went to boot it up and it was stuck in a boot loop.

This is a list of the steps I have taken so far to attempt to fix the issues:

- I removed all the ram and I re-seated them and it started to boot.
- Windows booted but started to repair boot.
- After the boot repair the computer started and then froze on the desktop.

Ok, so here is where it gets weird. As soon as i assemble my case and plug in the fans on the side panel the computer will freeze on the desktop, but if i unplug the fans the computer will boot and there are no issues whatsoever.

I tried different combinations of ways to plug in the fans and tried plugging some of the fans into a different peripheral cable on the PSU but still encountered the same issue.

Any ideas or suggestions on what might be the issue or solution.

Before I cleaned the PC everything worked perfect, and now I feel silly for cleaning it

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've cleared cookies and temp internet files and defragged it. I checked Windows and my security programs and downloaded any updates.

The O/S is Win XP It does not have MS Office installed, I use Open Office instead. I use mostly Firefox as my web browser, but I also have IE and Chrome installed (I'm pretty sure
they're the latest versions.) I have the following security programs installed:
AVG Free 8.5

Have a problem running sony vegas (a video editing software package).

The problem simply put is that on many occasions (just to point out it does not happen on every occasion, but it does happen frequently) i run the program it either crashes with a blue screen or it freezes and i get an error report provided by sony vegas. Although not strictly the only time it happens, the time it crashes the most (well the times i've noticed it crashing today) is whenever i try to play a preview of what I have edited.

Anyone know how to solve this issue for me please? The details of the error report are below:

Problem: Unmanaged Exception (0xc0000005)
Fault Module: D:\WINDOWS\system32\USER32.dll
Fault Address: 0x7E418628
Fault Offset: 0x00008628

All help much appreciated, thanks.

One crash was caused by your Nvidia driver. Download the latest here - Graphics Driver - GeForce 285.58 Driver - GeForce

Other crashes are being caused by COMODO. Please uninstall.

So this started happening for a few days now. Just looking at the memory ram meter, it says its at 50% but I have 6GB of DDR3 RAM.

Ran a few AV scans using malwarebytes, AVG, iobit system care, CCleaner, etc. Nothing shows up? Any help would be awesome!

I'll try and keep it short because I am late for work.

Background info:

* Toshiba M200 laptop about two years since purchase, no warranty.
* Upgraded 2GB PNY RAM from eBay, Dual-core 1.8GHZ Intel
* Brother once used laptop on bed and I think the problems may be related to that initial over-heating.
* Hard-drive and CPU running in mid 50's (degrees celcius)

What is wrong?

When I use my laptop, after a certain amount of time (sometimes less than 5 minutes sometimes 1hour) the laptop will freeze. The screen will freeze in the exact position is was (and remain like that) and the computer will be completely unusable/frozen.

When I restart the PC my wireless LAN card does not work.. hardware manager says the 'device failed to initialize/start up' but it is still recognised by the computer.

The only way to get the LAN card working is to turn off the PC and wait until it cools, then restart. The LAN card ONLY fails after the PC freezes and I restart.

The laptop is running hotter than when I bought it, and the hard drive is quite hot to touch (i have the HD case removed). The fan appears to be sucking in air (from the bottom) but there is not much air coming out of the vent and it is quite hot.

I initially thought the freezing might be caused by the Hard drive, so I replaced it with another HD running Ubuntu but the problem still occurs.

What could be the cause of my problem? Overheating? LAN card failure? Motherboard? RAM? Virus?

Please help me fix my extremely slow computer that freezes so that I have to unplug it to reboot. It takes almost 20 minutes just to start up and up to 5 minutes just to open a url or even a file. I've no idea how to fix it or even what to look for as the cause. My husband uses our Dell desktop and does not understand the importance of screening for spyware and suspicious websites. I suspect it is riddled with viruses and malware, despite McAfee software. Can you help or should I just trash it and get a new one? I did manage to download and run HiJackThis (after 30 mins. !)

I've been having problems with my computer lately. Within the last week it starting freezing up and then I couldn't shut it down using the Start > Turn Off Computer so I had to force the shut down by holding the power button. This weekend it was freezing a lot and even one time while I was in the middle of something it suddenly just restarted itself. Last night it got so bad I could only do about one task at a time and it would just freeze up if I tried to do anything else. I ran my Malware Antimalwarebytes software and it didn't find anything. Was going to run my Microsoft Security Essentials scan but I couldn't because it just kept freezing up on me so I shut everything down overnight. This morning so far it seems to be doing just fine, although when I first turned it on it sounded like the fan was making a really loud vibrating noise. So not sure if I'm having a hardware problem or it's something else. Any suggestions?

Hiho! I've been battling with this problem for a month or two now. My computer works normally for some time, might even do fine all day, but at some seemingly random point freezes start to occur. Sometimes they start happening within an hour from turning the PC on. There are three kinds of freezing the PC does:

1. The screen/PC starts freezing for a few seconds every 30 seconds or so. This happens until I restart or if I stay on for long enough it evetually freezes forever forcing to hit the power button. It can freeze forever almost immediately too.

2. The graphics card crashes and then comes back (gives a little message from the taskbar). After this the computer will freeze every time a video starts playing (youtube, VLC, stream, any video) and every time I go fullscreen in a video or video game. This video/game freezing might've happened even without the graphics card crashing though, I think.

3. BSOD about once every other day. The BSOD messages differ. I have not written any of them down at the moment.

Restarting always stops the freezing but obviously doesn't fix the problem. I've tried all the things I know and found some new tricks (checked for viruses and malware many times, recovery, cleaned the dust, kept an eye on the CPU usage, disabled some features, etc.). I think the CPU usage is normal during the freezes. I don't think it's overheating because the freezing can occur right when I turn on the PC even on a cold morning? Well, there is o... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Computer Freezing Sporadically and BSODs

Hello Dysfunctional,

I would say that, if you have performed a clean install of Windows 7 onto this system and it still has the same identical issues, then it is likely a hardware issue, assuming the correct drivers were installed and have been reinstalled for all your hardware, graphics card, etc.

Unfortunately I must direct you to the BSOD forum, where you need to make a post to help with BSOD issues following the posting instructions.

It does sound as if you need a new graphics card, but it might be something else. I would lean towards overheating but you sound like you have that covered. That said, I once worked on a system where the dust around the graphics card was so thick, that it was as hard as rock and blowing it with compressed air did budge it. Have you visually confirmed that is none of this around your fans or anything inside your system?

My computer keeps chugging and freezing at the desktop while programs are loading on startup. This keeps happening randomly. I've reformatted my HD 2 times now in 2 days only to end up with the same result, computer will eventually come to a point were it doesn't load at the desktop anymore and it just freezes, making me having to reformat again. Even if I restart the computer, it will do it again as the desktop loads.

Windows XP SP3
P5n-E SLI Asus Mobo
Duo 2.66ghz processor
300g samsung HD
ATI HD 3750 512 mb Video card


The first time the computer froze like this was when I was playing a video game. After hitting the restart button on my tower, getting back into the desktop was impossible cause it would just freeze. After trying to system restore, nothing, still froze. Reformat number 1.


Reformat 2: The computer froze like this a day ago during boot up at the desktop, and after hitting the power restart button on the front of my tower, upon boot up, it told me the file WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM is either missing or corrupt again, resulting for me to reformat the computer the 2nd time, cause after replacing it with the file on the windows CD it reverted my registry back to SP1. All kinds of conflicts were happening cause I reinstalled SP2 and 3.

About a week ago, I bought a brand new Asus CM1630 computer. It hasa dual core Athlon II x2 220 processor, 1Tb HD, and 4Gb RAM. Ran fine until yesterday. I usually shut it down when not using it. But now when I restart, quite often it will just hang up at the Welcome screen. The only way I've found to get it to work is to restart the computer again, sometimes it takes more than 1 restart, and sometimes on the restart it will hang up at the screen where you can hit certain buttons to enter BIOS and SETUP(don't know the name of that screen)

Hope someone can help me out

Check your DNS settings. Long delays to network resouces often signal a misconfigured DNS. From a command prompt type in ipconfig /all and look for the DNS entry. Make sure it matches your internal DNS server.

I'm not very good at computers, so bare with me.

I have tried using fraps and created a couple of "test" video clips. However, these .avi files that are created just freeze my computer. It's not even when I open it. Even if I just right click the folder the files are in, everything freezes. I have to wait a couple of minutes for the computer to close the programs and unfreeze. I can't even delete the files because it will freeze before I can do so.

After browsing the internet I've read that a lot of people have had this problem. Most of the time it is suggested to download certain codec packs. However, after trying CCCP and XP Codec pack, the problem is still there.

Problem solved with more browsing:

Hello, first of all I'm sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forums but I have no idea on where would this belong. Half a year ago my computer was randomly freezing, I did format my HDD and installed a clean version of Win7. That however did not solve the problem, so I decided to install a winxp64bit pro, to be able to utilize more ram and see if that solves the problem. It did not. After all that I decided to change the thermal cream and cleanup my cpu and graphics card fan. It worked, the computer wasn't freezing till the summer came, temperatures (according to razer gamebooster) went down from 50celsius to 30 when I cleaned it up, but during summer it was almost always near 50 again and it started freezing again, thought that the problem was purely in temeprature so I just waited it throught as I thought that during winter it would stop "overheating". And it did, temperatures are now as low as ever, mostly at about 25celsius. However, the freezing did not stop. It freezes in win7, it freezes in xp, and it also freezes in win7 safemode, however much less than in normal mode. So if anyone has any ideas, please enlighten me, thank you.

Hi there. I didn't know which section to put this in, so if its in the wrong place please move it.

So I've had this problem since I built my computer a few months ago, it is completely sporadic and seemingly random. Sometimes my computer won't freeze for days, other times shortly after start up.

When it freezes everything stops, the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive (no Ctrl-alt-del etc.) and if sound is playing there is a sort of "glitch" then silence. I don't know yet whether this is hardware related or software related.

Hi,
I have recently developed a problem. There are two programs that I have found so far that will freeze my computer when open them, Matlab and Visual Basic 6.0 Working Model.I have homwork due ! yikes.. I uninstalled VB the last bout and re-installed it and it worked wor about a week. Matlab I just discovered it today. I tried 4 or 5 times to open the applications but with the same result. I am not sure what is happening, It is strange because tose two applications were the most recent installations. I also have Autocad 14 which I installed last year and it booted up fine. Is there a problem with an initialization script? Virus? I am at a complete loss.

Thanks in advance.

A:(Solved) Computer Freezing when opening certain applications

JB,
What version of Windows are you using?

Try shutting down anything running in the background. Do a Ctrl-Alt, Delete, to display the Task List. End Task on all except Explorer and then try starting your applications.
If you have Windows 98, you can use MSConfig.exe to do the same thing. Run MSConfig.exe and select the Startup tab, uncheck all the entries and reboot.

Regards,
Roger

Hello,

let me tell you the problem first. In the beginning my pc showed sometimes disk read error, boot img when I turned it on. Sometimes it starts without problems. Then while working it would freeze and show blue screen of death many times.

So I did away with Windows 7 and clean installed Windows 8 and formatted all other drives. Now there is no blue screen of death (yet), disk read error came up only once (while installing photoshop), but the computer freezes a lot. Like when I opened 11th tab in Chrome or sometimes just randomly. it freezes and restarts and then gets stuck at the screen which comes up when we should press boot key.

Now I want to figure out if it's my HDD or RAM or something else that is creating these problems? I downloaded SpeedFan and Memtest86 but can't understand how to use them. So any tool that can present log files to paste data here so experts can analyze it would be great.

Thanks.

Hi:

I've been having a lot of computer problems lately: My computer runs really slow, takes forever to start up, freezes regularly, and has had the blue screen "dumping physical memory" around 5 times in the past 2 weeks. I hav run Norton Antivirus and it comes out clean. (I also tried unstalling/reinstalling that.) But when I try to connect to Norton "live update" it always stalls.

I"ve tried defragmenting, run chkdsk, cleaned out my temporary files, and everything easy I could think of.

I have Windows XP.

I ran hijackthis and my log is below. (I substitute in "NAME" rather than my full name where that shows up in the log.) I'd be very grateful for any help anyone could give me. I work for a small not-for-profit and we don't have much of a tech budget.

Thanks very much.

Hi All,
Hoping someone can help. I have two Dell Pc's one upstairs one downstairs. A few months ago one of my computers just stopped booting. It would freeze about 10 seconds after you turn it on but I didn't use it very much so didn't bother trying to fix it. Now recently my hard drive as gone on one of my other Dells with a clicking hard drive sound which i know is fatal.

I have replaced it with the other drive from the other dell the one that froze and it seems to do the exact same as the other, just freezing with a black screen before it can show the XP splash screen.So I know this has got to be a hard drive problem as the same symptoms, however I have checked to see if the the computer can see the drive in the Bios and it can plus I have done some Maxtor hard drive diagnostics and has come up as Passed so i am at a loss to what it could be. The answer may be in Recovery Console, I have tried Fixboot and FixMBR but to no avail. Anyone have any ideas to what I could try.

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys!

I'm having some major problems with my computer. I was playing a game (stronghold kingdoms), opened a battle report to see the battle, and my computer froze.Mouse wouldn't move, ctrl+alt+delete wouldn't work.
Only solution was the reset button. When i reset the computer same thing happened when i tried opening the game. I tried it many times, always the same thing. Computer froze. First thing i thought that it had overheated (was running for about 14 hours straight, and it is an old pc) , so i left it for a few hours to cool down. After i came back, i opened a movie, and the computer froze. Not right away, after a few seconds. I tried again, the computer would always freeze, some times not at the same point, but it would freeze at some point. (most of the times when a scene changed or i forwarded the movie.)
At some point, computer would freeze most of the times at the windows loading screen.
Tried restroring the computer a few days back, nothing changed.
Installed an anti-crash program, still nothing, scanned disk for errors, nothing.
Opened the computer in safe mode, still froze at some point.
I tried restoring the computer 2 months back, but the computer froze when 1/5 of the process was left. When i rebooted the computer, it would not go past the Ai Series screen where it froze (the screen before the windows loading screen).

Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

Sorry for the long post

With Windows XP, perhaps 1/2 year would go by before i had my computer freeze for some reason but always solved after a re-bootup. The past 48 hours i had a real BLANK of a time with my computer freezing up....eventually i solved it. However i am not exactly sure what went wrong in the first place. Perhaps this post with help others. Here's what happen:

During the past week i had about 5 episodes of my computer freezing but i saw no real problem until yesterday when the computer freezing problem got worse,much WORSE by
freezing up within 15 seconds of Windows opening. The computer froze in safe mode too. When i tried running CHECKDISK/REPAIR, my computer froze. I tried many times to boot into WIndows but the freezing problem continued. I decided to do a REFORMAT...1 hour later i boot into WIndows and the freezing problems continued. I did another REFORMAT and still the freezing continued.

I started to panic and started wildly trying all things.

I pulled out up the USB cord with the WIRELESS CARD adaptor,rebooted and WOW! the freezing problem was not happening. I plugged the USB cord into my computer and FREEZE. I tried 5 times booting up and as soon as the USB cord was plugged in,the FREEZE. I have been using this same USB adaptor was 2 years,so i assumed it was broke. I bought a new USB WIRELESS adaptor,the freezing problems came back.

I found myself wondering what to do next,i did reformats and i did reformats. Then i started experimenting and took out the internal... Read more
