A: startup, shutdown, critical sytems error message: hijackthis file

Every time the computer is turned on or restarted it runs Starup Repair. When i look at the diagnosis it says 'boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt'. I have already tried to restore the computer but i don't have the discs where i have backed up the computer. I have also run a virus scan with Avira and it did pick up 4 viruses and i removed them but the error still occurs. If someone could help me and give me guidance it'll be much appreciated.

A:Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

After the PC tries the start up repair, select advanced options. From there you should be able to access CMD.

Once you get CMD open run this command. sfc /scannow -This will scan the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed.

Here is our problem: when trying to start Windows XP Home Edition, the following error message appears on a dreaded blue screen:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. Technical information: ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF91CF528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000)

1. I restarted the computer. The Windows screen did not appear. The blue screen/error message appeared.
2. I attempted to restart in Safe Mode. The Windows screen did not appear. The blue screen/error message appeared.
3. I attempted to disable automatic reboot on system failure. The Windows screen appeared briefly, then the blue screen/error message appeared.
4. I cannot check for viruses, as I cannot get past the blue screen/error message.
5. We have not installed any new hard drives or hard drive controllers.
6. I do not know how to check the hard drive to make sure it is properly configured.

A:Blue Screen Error Message On Startup - Auto Shutdown

<<I do not know how to check the hard drive to make sure it is properly configured.>>If it's properly connected, reflected correctly in the BIOS, and partitioned/formatted...it's properly configured, IMO. Whether it has problems is a different story.System manufacturer and model (e.g., eMachines T1357)?Do you have recovery/restore CDs? Do you have a MS Genuine XP install CD?Louis

Sino, you have an Xupiter infection. You should be able to remove it by installing, UPDATING, and running Spybot, following directions here. Be sure to reboot afterwards.

http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html

You may also need to run the CoolwebShredder as you have been hijacked by it as well:

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip

For good measure you might want to try Ad-Aware :

If you get a missing msvbm60 error when trying to run it, you will need to install updated VB runtime files

When I log off from my user account on Win XPPro, I get some kind of quick error message which I am unable to read.

I did recently remove McAfee Security Center and I notice in the log file there are a couple of lines referencing McAfee. I'm not sure if those hurt anything or not.

Can you please review my file and see if you see anything suspicious? I have run and updated Spybot and Adaware and both are clean.

Thanks!

Read more More replies Answer Match 66.36% Yesterday, while using my computer, my anti-virus 'Microsoft Security Essentials' popped up stating it had found a virus. Within a second, a windows update window popped up with an update ready to install, followed immediatly by 'AntiSpyware Doctor' and a window saying 'Windows has encountered a serious error and will shut down in one minute' which it then proceeded to do. This continues to appear everytime the computer is started. Starting the computer in safe mode allowed me to use Malware Bytes to eliminate Antispyware docter, as it no longer appears when starting the computer, however the error message ,above, still continues. I believe the problem occurs only when the computer is connected to the internet as it does not occur if i am able to stop my computer from automatically connecting to the internet upon startup. I tried a system restore, however it fails and reports a problem with a file in the drivers folder in the system 32 folder. I am unable to interact with this file at all as the computer tells me it is unable to find the source disc whenever i try. I have access to a Windows Install disc.

When I tried to turn it on, it would not turn on. I uninstalled / re-installed MSE and it turned on. Almost immediately I got a message that said I had 2 severe threats that had been quarantined and that MSE was cleaning my computer. Right away got a message that said "Windows has encountered a critical error and will shutdown in one minute. Please save your work." My computer loops through this cycle continuously.

I've tinkered a bit with the services, following the services guide at The Elder Geek's website. I've only shut down the services it recommends, or that I don't use on my computer. Also, sometimes when I boot up, instead of going to the black screen with Windows and the scrollbar, it goes straight to a full black background with only the following: "SiI 3132 SATALink BIOS Version 7.3.13 Copyright (C) 1997-2006 Silicon Image, Inc." I've been trying to figure out just what's been causing this and can't really find much. I've considered flashing the BIOS, but I've never done that. My motherboard manufacturer's website recommends to do it only if I'm sure it will fix my problem, which I'm not. I've tried cleaning the dust from the inside of the case with a can of air. Had some problems with my DVD drive reading slowly and that fixed it, so thought I'd try it on the rest as well.

Make sure the wires that go from the power supply and main board are securely in place. I had a similar problem with a 300gb drive and it ended up being that I was using a converter for the hard drives power and not the power cable that plugged directly in from the power supply. Make sure you power down your computer before tinkering around in it though, might even want to unplug it and let it sit for like 10secs first. 3 more replies Answer Match 65.52% Yesterday I was infected with Live Security Platinum, wich I've never heard about but I was able to get rid of it with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Read more A:Critical error Event ID 41 after every shutdown and bootup. RESOLVED: Since placing this thread, I was addressing other errors I found in the event logs. One of those had to do with "Metadata staging failed". Researching about this error let me to the URL: http://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cras...-failed-3.html where poster Saammy gave the following possible solution: I have the solution for the problem. Searches on regedit for the following entry: DeviceMetadataServiceURL There you change the URL in the following: http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc after you have closed the editor is saved the change. Now the problem is solved and it will also re-loaded device information. As instructed, I used regedit and searched for "DeviceMetadataServiceURL", and it's value was set to: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Link...69&clcid=0x409 I changed the value to "http://dmd.metaservices.microsoft.com/dms/metadata.svc" and then rebooted. The end result was that this did indeed fix the "Metadata staging failed" errors, and interestingly enough the Event ID 41 is no longer showing up in the event logs after shutdown/reboot. I did 5 shutdown/reboot sequences... 1 per hour, and neither problem has occurred since making the above change. 3 more replies Answer Match 65.52% BACKGROUND: I'm troubleshooting a critical error message I receive in the event log.

A:critical error message 6 more replies Answer Match 63.84% Hi, everybody. I downloaded Windows 10 from the the Microsoft site, because I had reserved a free copy. I had Window 8.1 before this. Up till now, it seems that most things worked fine. I tweaked it a little and allowed the new program to "get used to my desktop." After first being unable to transfer stuff over, Windows 10 finally began complying with requests for switching things, etc. A brand-new problem has begun with the Start icon, which is the Micro "flag" at the lower left of the screen. Every time I hit it in order to sign off, I get a message..... "Critical Error. Your Start Menu button isn't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in." It offers me a box to sign off within the error message, fortunately. I went on line and found that a number of people are experiencing this same problem. And many of their concerns are directed to others in the Microsoft Community website. By the way, it doesn't happen all the time, only most of the time. When it doesn't happen, it seems to be because I've cleared by temporary files, emptied my trash bin, and deleted the adware that has accumulated with each use. If I'm lucky, that is. Another thing I've noticed. I use Superantispyware, among other malware detectors. I've used it for XP, 8.1 and now 10. Each time it has picked up a bit more adware and minor spyware.

The computer is a Dell running Windows 7. Every morning, the first person to turn it on sees a whole bunch of updates being installed. The boot screen is irregular, it doesn't include the F2 or F12 options for changing the setup, and it never goes to the log screen. Instead, it goes to a "Startup Repair" window, runs a "scan" that can't be canceled, and then reports that Windows was unable to fix the problem and offers an option to restart. If I click to see the full diagnostic, everything checks out except the last item, which says that "critical boot file ci.dll is corrupt." If I go to "Advanced Diagnostic Tools," it doesn't allow to me do a system restore or much of anything else besides open the command prompt, and I can do only limited diagnostic tasks from there. If I restart, though, it restarts and functions perfectly normally. I installed Avast on there when I started working with it and the full virus scan finds no problems. The computer functions normally for the rest of the day; however, when I go to shut it down after 5 oclock, it says that it's installing 67 updates, every single day. I can't figure out whether this is some bizarre virus that just makes it take a little longer to use the computer every morning, or a much more malicious virus whose effects simply haven't mani...

The exact desktop message reads: "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected. It is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer before all spyware removed."I managed to get rid of the desktop message (using AntiVir until the scan stopped for no apparent reason. The scan did not complete and I can't get it to scan again.) Under Desktop, the "critical_warning" file still appears in the list. The current wallpaper is the blue screen without the message written out above and I can't change it because this Desktop/Background page is locked up.My homepage was changed (to google, oddly). I cannot access system restore, nor can I use Malewarebytes or other antivirus programs because I get a message that reads: "Windows cannot access the specified file. You may not have permissions to access the item."

Read more A:Critical error message stuck next to my clock 16 more replies Answer Match 62.16% Good Afternoon, So Im fairly adept with computers but I cant seem to solve this problem. On my VAIO FZN, there seems to be a virus which has taken control of my computer, most likely some sort of rootkit. When the computer starts it says "You are about to be logged off - Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please save your work now." after about 3-5minutes. BUT the catch is that this only occurs when the computer has the front LAN switch turned on. when this switch is off it works fine except for that I cant connect to the internet.

Hi..I just bought a refurbished computer. Its an HP Desktop Computer COMPAQ 6005 PRO Phenom II X3 3.0 GHz 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit .

In order to install windows for the first time on this refurbished machine, I have to choose "system restore" at boot.
It starts to go through the process of installing windows, then I get this message : "Windows Restore Critical Failure. This can be caused by a missing Windows image".
Anyone know how I can fix this. I cant get into windows, because I first have to install it using the system restore. So the only computer access I have, is when it boots up.

I have tried to contact Newegg...which is where I bought it, but no luck. All repairs and service is through the warranty company...cant get in touch with them either.

Thanks.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post serial numbers and case details.

When will HP or Microsoft create a fix for this error? There are 236,000 posts about this on Microsoft Community. Yet no fix. "Windows 10 Critical Error Startup not working" I worked with the HP IT, the only workaround is creating a new account profile with administrative rights. Setting up that account then  copying your files to that account. It takes too much time for a temporary  fix. This has happened to me 3 times since I bought my computer 2 months ago and no one has a permanent fix! I can not keep creating new profile accounts, it take too long to copy files and set the account up. There are computers where this does not happen, I'm doing research and return my HP back to Best Buy, it is unusable.

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

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

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

Running uTorrent, you are high-risk for infection. If it wasn't the e-mail, it would have been something else, eventually.

Those are two of the malware. There's probably more. You can always assume that the only executables running from temporary and documents folders are malware.

I have been having problems for about 3 weeks now. BSOD's, critical error shutdowns, unable to startup problems.

The startup repair usually fixes startup by restoring back to a time when the computer was properly configured. Then it works for awhile and then more problems.

So far I have run a chkdsk \r (224 kb in bad sectors), run a memory diagnosis(supposedly fine), updated drivers with a driver updater, run a registry fixer, downloaded "BlueScreen Viewer"(nice program), ran Virus Scan(Avast, Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, Super Anti Spyware), and did allot of research.

Usually the crashes are supposedly due to IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, or memory management. The drivers are NTKNLPA.exe, hal.dll(usually one of these) but others are, Ntfs.sys, aswSP.SYS, nvstor 32.sys

Do not know what else to do.
I would appreciate any and all help!!!

A:Hijackthis log file help and shutdown problem

Hi and welcome. Instead of opening another thread when you don't have a reply, post BACK to the same thread, otherwise you will confuse the issue when someone eventually posts back to that one

About a year ago I installed a cyber sitter called "iProtectyou" on my son's computer. I decided to uninstall it for him recently because it didn't work, and it only seemed to give him a hassle when he tried to use the internet or play games. When I tried to reinstall it, it would not take the password I used (I could of forgotten it, but I had it written down).

After hours of trying to uninstall it, I went to the internet and Googled how to get rid of cyber sitter's with a forgotten password. Luckily there were several people with the same problem. I downloaded the applications they gave out on the site, and eventually got rid of it. They also had me go to the "Registry Editor" (run: regedit) and screw around in there. The program still shows up in "Programs and Features" but theirs no publisher now, and I still cannot install it. Except now, instead of asking for a password, it just says that their was an error with database.

Now when ever we open up anything, we are swarmed with windows telling us "Crictical Error Occured While Opening Database."

Any help would be great.

When I shut down, I get an "initialization failed" error message containing "USRprbdA.exe". It appears this is a US Robotics software problem. This problem started appox. 5 months ago. At that time I was running a Verizon DSL modem made by Westell and had been for sometime. I recently switched to a cable modem which is RCA.
Haven't run a US Robotics modem for appox. 1 1/2 years. I checked my Device Manager and found the modem listed "US Robotics 56K Voice Win Int". Checked the Add Remove Software area and found no obvious software. I'm not sure why the problem started suddenly. It's more a personal annoyance than a real problem, but how can I fix the problem?

This is a family member's laptop. It is a Dell Inspirion N4110 running Win 7 Home Premium x64
They gave it to me complaining that the shutdown button restarts the computer and will not actually shut it down.
So I checked its preferences, they were fine. I went into the registry and changed the value from 1 to 0. That didn't work. (I changed it back)

I noticed on start up there is an error (it still pops up) that says there was a problem starting c:\users\blah\AppData\Roaming\homsp.dll The specified module could not be found.

The I decided to run a virus scan. Their McAfee had expired so I uninstalled it along with some odd software from a company called SysTweak or something and installed AVG and Malware Bytes. Those full scans came back clean except AVG found something and removed it but it wasn't of any significance to this issue.

I decided to check Windows Update, it wouldn't run. So I tried to restart it in Services and it wasn't there. After some piddling I found a program that supposedly fixed the problem for you. It was called Fix WU. I got it Softpedia. After running it the Windows Update service was back. I was able to install some updates and thought all was well. Then there were more updates. I tried to install them and got an error 80246008.

Their is no way of knowing all the things a program like that has done. If I had to repair this computer I would start with a repair install.

Then I would install MSE for a anti virus and use the built in Windows Firewall.

Little note: If you didn't use McAfee's online removal tool their could of been left overs of McAfee on the computer when you installed AVG and that would be just more problems.
Any anti virus program you remove I recommend using their own removal tool found online.

A:Recieving error message when trying to shutdown

Oooh you are a meanmom! Kidding

This message is primarily seen when other users haven't logged off their profile with a common, or shared PC. Since they didn't log off, whatever they have pending could potentially not be saved. (They're the bad guy.) If they can't save and log off, Meanmom can't be responsible. A few iterations of this works well; just tell them you didn't know better.

If you have a gateway configuration -- meaning you have 2 or more computers that share a connection, when you turn off your computer all others disconnect, you might see this message. This means you're the bad guy. They were transferring something and you shut them down cold. I toss the typical 5 minute warning "Hey!! You have 5 mins and that's it!!"

This is the first time my computer is having this problem. It randomly shuts down every 20-30 minutes or so. A screen comes on with a big "X" in a red circle that states "Please save your work as windows needs to shutdown. Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated unexpectedly."

It then says the shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM.

This is really annoying & frustrating as I'm constantly booted off my computer. It only gives you exactly 1:00 minute to save your work.

Can anyone tell how to fix this? I tried running a virus scan but it takes too long and it won't finish because my pc reboots before the scan is done.

Does this sound like an infection or could it be something else?

Hello.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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