A: windows xp pro dont turn off or reboot

you are infected with a virus

winxp.exe is a process which is registered as [email protected]\r "This virus is distributed via the Internet through e-mail and comes in the form of an e-mail message, in the hopes that you open its hostile attachment.\r" The worm has its own SMTP engine which means it gathers E-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself.\r "In worst cases this worm can allow attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data.\r" This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.

fix it with this

i have windows xp , in a storm it was on, power went out and after that computer dont want to turn on, just making a sound as fan working, i went to a technician and he said "motherboard", but i bought one an still doing the same thing,I went to another technician and said "motherboard". how do i know what does my computer has? please help me

A:dont turn on

Lightning fried something or many things. Unless you have good hardware testing abilities, this is one time I'd say take it to a shop and get an estimate. Set a limit $100, $200, $300, or whatever you think. If it's beyond that, time for a new machine.

ok so i have strange issue that has carried over to windows 7 from Vista on my DV6500 laptop. basicly what happens is i will be using the laptop or playing a game and the mouse will just all the sudden not allow me to click or select anything. i dont know how it happens and there is nothing different that i do from time to time.

the only way to fix it is just to control alt delete and bring up the task manager. once it goes back to the windows screen it works again.

sometimes only for like 30 seconds and it will start doing it again.

i have upgrade my bios as well as changed the OS 3x and it still has the same issue.

Can anyone please help mE???????

Hi and welcome to sevenforums.
Since your mouse issue has carried over from vista to win 7 it can only be a couple of things. But before I can realy be of much help I need to know everthing about your computer.
Who makes it, what model, how much ram, what kind of mouse, What OS, what mouse driver.

We can start from there

Alright well....I have been referred to both the hardware and now the virus remove board. You can view the full thread here:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...od-405619.html

But what I have pretty much been going through are BSOD, and slow startups. On little side notes Explorer.exe will sometimes restart itself when I click on the Windows Key (Start) and my network icon sometimes shows the red X over it but I am obviously connected to the internet as this post proves it....Sad part is this is a fresh install maybe 2 weeks old now. My cd/dvd drive is burned out so I dont have access to that. I am running windows vista sp2. I also have Vipre installed and running all the time. *shrug* hopefully you guys can tell me something haha.

Its now 3am and I am going to bed.

Thanks in advance I really do appreciate the help.

Hello dragonleader33,

You've been through the mill, haven't you.

I'm sorry to say that I do not see any malware here. I spent the past hour going over your other 4 page thread, and these logs. Here are the highlights of your Vista thread:


Quote:




It has been going on for sometime now and I thought I just caught a nasty bug...after doing several virus scans it kept coming up clean...so I decided to just clear the HD and reinstall the OS. To my surprise the same stuff occurs. I have ran an HD test and a memory test and both passed.





Quote:




It does appear that it's your USB drivers - either the drivers for the USB on the mobo, or the drivers for the device. It's also possible that the device is malfunctioning, or that there's a problem with the connection between the device and the USB hub (on the mobo).





Quote:




Do you have any other USB devices connected to the system? If so, please disconnect them while we're troubleshooting this problem.

You have numerous outdated drivers on your system. This is known to cause issues with Vista SP2 systems - and some of the drivers (athr.sys in particular) are known to cause BSOD's. Finally, there's a presence of a HAL dll in the drivers - which tends to indicate an incompatibility issue (which supports the supposition that SP2 and older drivers are causing this).

you could try access the BIOS by pressing F10 at boot and then load setup defaults or something like that, be careful because the defaults might not correctly specfy how much graphics RAM the notebook should use, also power settings might be wrong, ACP should be enabled, OS type should be plug-and-play .. don't know if your notebook actually has any of these settings, hope it helps ..

i have recently recieved my friends pc to try and help remove a fake AV virus from his pc. it was not one that popped up a GUI but it did block alot of legit AV programs and internet.
I was able to boot into Safe Mode and run Avira and SuperAntiSpyware to what i thought was removing malware and trojans.
after restart it would come up with Bad Image warnings of missing or invalid DLL files Ie. C:\WINDOWS\system32\vizfxs.dll which is one of the warnings.
it will pop up different warnings for different program but the same or one other DLL will appear to be missing after using SAS and Avira.
After that i installed the Compaq HDD in my XP SP2 machine as a slave and ran Avira and SAS again with SAS saying clean and Avira having i think 31 or 32 warnings of files not able to be opened for scan. so now im here at a loss as to what to do and what to run. i have SAS, Avira, MBAM, Spybot S&D, and HJT on a backup disk if needed to run but i dont know where to begin or what to do with this PC now.
any help will be greatly appreciated and if i didnt explain something well enough please let me know.

The power button lights up when u turn it on, well it doesnt, but u here the fans go, the harddrive run, cdrom drive etc. But the monitor doesnt come on, it just says no signal. So now the computer doesnt turn on or work.

Huh. Surprised this hasn't been answered. I'll take a crack at it, though I'm still using a Lenovo y50 with a gtx 860m.You state that you've attempted to use the gtx 960m by right-clicking on the game (icon?) and that you've looked for the option in nvidia experience.Have you tried navigating the NVidia Control Panel? Google that, and good luck. I'm surprised and disappointed no one on these boards answered your questions. I hope you went direct to Lenovo support after you left this post, and that they helped you resolve your problem, they've been helpful for me in the past.

A:crash code c0000218 to blue screen no back up dont reboot al

If you access the recovery partition, you will lose all your files. If you have nothing saved, it's okay. According to Google, that's usually an XP error & The Ultimate Boot CD is recommend to do a restore point.However, I would try F8 first. If you can get to the menu, choose last known good configuration. If that doesn't work, try safe mode with networking. Then try a restore point.How do you know when a politician is lying?

I have Win 7 Home Premium.

Is there an easy way to disable my wireless connection so that (a) it does not enable itself after a reboot, and (b) I don't need to implement the complete process to re-enable the wireless?

Under normal circumstances, the re-enable after a reboot is fine. I can disconnect WiFi from the system tray, and it reconnects after reboot.

But sometimes, I might want wireless to remain disabled after reboot. For example, if I'm doing a database restore, and the database starts synching after a reboot (such as Evernote), it could cause problems :-)

At the moment, I simply switch off the router until the database restore is complete.

I have a situation that UAC must be disabled in order to use a web based application features like merging data into MS Word, uploading/downloading within this application. I disabled UAC using GPO to all machines but for the next person
that will log on to the same computer the function of the web application mentioned will not work until the user goes to the Ctrl Panel > User Accounts > User Account Control and click OK on the warning message that says 'This setting will
take effect after you click OK and reboot' . I have like 1200 computer to manage and this causing big problem.

How can I automate using maybe GPO or pushing a register entry or anything you can think to turn off UAC
without a reboot required or even to do auto reboot after the GPO is applied. When this yellow exclamation in Ctrl Panel is ON with a message 'This setting will take effect after you click OK and reboot'  the application will
not work.
This 3rd part vendor are unable to make this application work while UAC is ON and I wonder how other application makers make their app work while UAC is ON.

I've been getting MANY problems with my computer freezing up on start up whenever I try to turn it on. I'm on a Windows XP Home, Asus k8v delux mobo, Corsair dual 256 Mb RAM, and AMD Athlon 64 3200+

The problem is when it starts up, it's different everytime how it happens...sometimes it happens immediately, sometimes it happens when trying to open programs in the early stages of logging on windows, sometime it happens at logon screen, sometimes it happens 5 minutes after being logged on...but the computer just...freezes...not like your typical freeze, where stuff still runs in the background (like music)...it kinda just dies but stays on...the biggest tell tale sign is the mouse stops working...I use an optical mouse, and the light just goes off...IT's not the mouse because I can't type either...and the fact that programs cease to run anymore. Sometimes it doesn't even lock up...sometimes I get a BSoD, and other times when I boot up, I don't even get to the Motherboard's logo screen...what should be a quick 5 minute or less process, stretches out to close to 20 minutes because it happens numerous times...it's very frustrating and I'm not sure if it's a problem with Windows, or problem with processor, or problem with motherboard...It's a situation I'd like to resolve and would appreciate any help I could get.

Thanks

any help ?
 

A:my laptop wont turn on or reboot

You may need to go into your laptop's BIOS and change the boot order, as soon as you turn your laptop on, look for an option similar to "Press Del to enter Setup".

When you see the option, let the laptop run to the point where it doesn't go any further and reboot it. This time, keep pressing the button you saw earlier - it could be either Del, F2 or any number of keys.

This should load your laptop's BIOS screen. Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, navigate around - being careful not to change any of the options - until you find a section or menu called "Boot Order" or something similar. What you then need to do is fix it so that the CD-ROM drive is above your hard drive in the order, the exact key commands will probably be displayed to you in some kind of help section of the screen.

When you've done this, reboot with the CD in the drive and it should start. If not, try the CD in another computer (just starting up from the CD alone will not do anything to the computer). If it starts and shows a blue "Windows Installation" screen, there's a more serious problem with your laptop.

If this is the case, I would personally recommend sending it back to Philips (or wherver you got it from) and getting it looked at under warranty. Laptop warranties are usually good for a year unless you've dropped it or spilled something on it.

Hope this helps a bit
MF

I'm a newbie to this forum. Just got a new HP Pavilion d6500t with installed Vista Ultimate x64. Has been tough going, but was scraping by until today. I installed Quickbooks (via download) and transferred my data files from my old pc to the new pc. Things seemed fine...then BAM!

The screen became "jumpy" and I received a number of error messages. Could not bring up Task Manager, so I had to shut down the pc manually (turned it off). Reboot involved a system check because of the manual shut-down. System check was fine...but, now my pc is frozen on a black screen with the hp logo in the middle. My choices are the usual: Press <ESC> to enable startup message, <F1> to enter System information...etc.

MY PROBLEM: I cannot go ANYWHERE from here. The F-keys are not responding AND I cannot even manually shut off the pc!

I am a total novice when it comes to pc systems. I need help DESPERATELY. Any suggestions out there?

Hi
I've an ongoing problem which is now very annoying.
At any given time my PC will turn itself off. It's not a controlled shutdown, it's literally as if someone has pulled the power supply. There's no blue screen and I just can't work out what the problem is.
If you then try to turn the PC on after this failure it won't. The fans whir and the lights come on but there are no beeps on start up and nothing is displayed on my monitor.
I can then get the PC to work by removing the power cable completely, waiting 30 seconds and then attempting to turn back on.
Generally it seems to happen during my syncing of my mp3 player, whilst media player is converting to say WMA format. Or during a compression of a ZIP file. It appears to be through cpu intensive applications. It will also do it on occasions during a full virus scan (Mc Afee INternet Security)
I had major problems a few months back as the "failure" corrupted the boot segment of my drive - which fortunately I was able to recover.
The PC is often on most of the day but during light use or sitting idly by it seems to have no problems.
THere are so many options of what could be at fault - memory, power supply, cpu, bad driver. I don't know where to start.
Is there a way I can create a log of activity to try and see what's causing this? I'd like to start logging of anything useful, start a media sync and see what happens.

Hello, whenever I shut the lid of my laptop, it goes to sleep mode. After a while, when I open it back up it would turn on normally, but most of the times, it would just not even turn on.The keyboard lights can be turned on and the power button is on during that moment. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Minor but annoying problem here.

I have 2 external 300GB hard drives (IDE type) connected via USB. Let''s call them D drive and E drive.

Well, let's say that I have them both turned on while my system is on and for some reason I have to reboot my system. Well, once my system is rebooted and up and running again I can start using D drive right away. But if I want to use the E drive, I have to turn the drive off then back on again in order for the system to recognize the drive after the system reboot.

It's always been this way ever since I got the drives about 8 months ago or so. I only now just decided to post about it since it's only a minor annoyance.

Anyone know why the D drive is ready to use after a system reboot without having to turn it off then on again whereas the E drive isnot?

Would love the E drive to behave like the D drive, of course.

Thanks.

How to turn windows firewall off? I can't click the Turn Windows Firewall On or Off

A:How to turn windows firewall off? I can't click the Turn Windows Firew

This may have been disabled on your computer, particularly if you are in a Domain (e.g.: at work, in a library, etc).

However assuming that you have Administrator rights to your computer you should be able to turn it on and off by going to Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

If you cannot turn the Firewall off through the above approach try the following Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

Looks for the 'Windows Firewall' Service, double click it, then click on 'Stop'.

From within the Service properties you can also stop the Firewall from starting with Windows, etc.

Hi, I am Emy from the Netherlands. Wish you all a nice day!

I have troubles with - at least - one of the computers in the little network here. I will describe some of the troubles.
-Links to internetpages on the desktop dont work. I need to paste those in a blank window.
-2 weeks ago the home internetpage was blocked. After looking in a lot of forums I found how to change the homepage to Google. (by changing the registry)
-Online scanners for spyware dont start/are interrupted or dont find anything wrong
-Windows installer is coming up after every click I make to install Symantec Antivirus. But Symantec is already installed.
-I tried programs like Ccleaner and ATF; also Combofix. The last one was also interrupted (black screen). I installed the recovery console. Dont know how to delete this console.
-Even when I dont use this computer, it is like the computer is busy - at times (sounds like when using a program busy converting media files)
-I couldnt activate my membership. Not using the first link, nor the second one. Got a message that something wrong.
-I found srchassctl in the registry. Erased the Search Assistant. After rebooting ACMRU was gone, but SrchAssCtl is here again
-I found msmsgs a lot of times on this computer. I think the problems started with a message in the Live messenger.

Now I will paste the properly files to this topic. DDS and Attach

Hello all,

I have been having a problem for quite some time now. I'm unsure when it started happening because it's been going on for such a long time now. So, here's whats been going on.

Every time i try to delete something, it finishes deleting and the 'Deleting' Windows stays open and it tells me its calculating how much time is remaining and it says 0 bytes left. o to get rid of the window i have to restart windows explorer from the task manager. Another problem i've been having is that when i rename a file, i can't X out of the window that i renamed the file in and i have to restart windows explorer for it to work. After i restart WE the folder/file is renamed. The last problem linked to this is that whenever i move/copy a file, it keeps the 'Moving' window open and i can't close it unless i restart windows explorer.


It's a real pain to deal with this and if anyone could help me out that would be great...

My computer hard drive crashed a week ago and most of my back-ups went with the system. So, I got a new 500 GB drive and have been re-installing everything from scratch. I started with a clean install of Windows XP (service pack 2), which took forever to get all the up-dates done. Then I upgraded to Windows 7 and did the up-dates for that. I didn't make a recovery disk at this point because I wanted to get everything installed first.

Unfortunately, the last time I went to reboot it failed. When I power-up the computer it stalls out on the Dell BIOS screen. I can't get into Safe Mode, Setup, or the Boot Menu because my keyboard and mouses are not working. They are both USB and none of my USB ports are working. (Also, I have not PS/2 ports on my machine.).

Finally, I cannot get the machine to boot off the DVD drive; so, even if I wanted to, I could not start over with a fresh installation.

My machine is a Dell Inspiron 530.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows 7 won't reboot and cannot reboot from DVD

There's not a whole lot you can do for this as it sounds like your mobo might be going out. First, I would check all your usb ports and make sure there is no damage to them (metal bent, touching other contacts). If that doesn't work you can try resetting the cmos via the jumpers, or by disconnecting the power and removing the flat silver battery on the motherboard for about 15m.

Let us know if that does anything.

First I know this has been asked a many times but no solutions seems to work for me. I have a bunch of stuff going wrong and all seems to related to each other.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
That is how the problem progressed:

1. I was trying to enable Telnet service and found out that 'Turn Windows Features on/off' in Control panel > Programs and Features is a blank list.

I checked on internet and i found out that it means my windows update wont be working as well so i check it:

2. Windows update gives the error 80070002 and it does not check for updates.

3. Again check net and it said to run sfc/scannow in command prompt (as administrator). I did it. and it gives error 'Windows Resource Protection can't execute the command'.

I have tried everything. I have tried:
msconfig.exe to enable/disable services and restarting and rechecking.
Uninstalling my Avast Antivirus.
Running MS Fixit tool.
I have checked disk check in advanced startup options.
Deleted 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download' contents and recheck the Windows update facility.
Nothing works. I dont have Windows CD coz my laptop came installed with windows.

Thanks for reading. and helping

A:Windows Update and Windows Features dont work.

Welcome to SevenForums,

Please try this suggestion and let us know how it goes:
Windows Update error 80070002

I bought my copy of Windows Vista Home Premium yesterday, during installation, It said its not able to update from XP, and that it needs to do a Fresh install, when I boot up my PC now, It keeps asking me to choose what I want to Boot, XP or Vista, is there a way I can delete XP, I want to only have Vista on here now?

Regards

Thanks for the Help.

honestly if you don't have anything important on vista yet the easiest thing might to just reinstall vista and just format the whole hard drive during setup.

I am mainly looking for input...I havent tried W8 at all so essentially know very little about it.
I am usually pretty fast to try out a new OS and accept the new technology ....but I failed to do such with W8.
From what little I have read some just dont like it....Change is often bad as people want familiarity so they dont seem lost on the new OS.
So with{un} familiarity aside ...I am interested more in its short comings such as useful functions lost if there are any.
Also is it multi tasking friendly.
I notice right away that the desktop is essentially gone as we know it and is filled with your business for everyone to see.
What navigation has changed, what user tools are missing etc...And while we are at it what improvements are present that may make it more secure etc

Here i am again, complaining about my system..
As my previous topics, this one i think is more serious as i cant boot nor open up advance boot options(f8 dont work). As soon the manufacturers logo show off, an error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del to resatrt." It remains unless i press shutdown. Power on and it still shows the same.
 
I havent finished the download of the iso(to be used as a recovery method) thats why i opt for another way which is to recover a backup copy of my registry(which iv done by manually exporting it).  However, i have encrypted it before with my administrative user account. Now, im not able to decrypt it via cipher or keys as if i run: "cipher /c thatfilename.reg" it informs me that only the user(my account) and certificate thumbprint can decrypt it. No found backup certificate or keys. Bad for me i dont know how to recover it via the certificate thumprint....
 
My last option that i try is use EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard, which i have googled about tools that can decrypt files...
Glad it runs even im only using the recovery console. I installed it on my memory card(as my pc can still detect it). Im new to this tool and still dont know what should i click on for a spedific purpose. But i have tried the partition recovery, since im thinking that maybe it could still detect missing/lost files on the drive by which windows is installed..  It search then rebuild directories for more than 4 hours. remaining time is already at 00:...

A:win 7 dont boot, f8 dont work,got error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del...

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try.  This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems.  I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted.  Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption.  In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.

Ok I have Windows Defender. Along with SpyCatcher, AVG anti virus and AVG anti spyware, Spyware Terminator, VundoFix, Ad-Aware SE, Spyware Doctor and Spybot S&D. Reciently found that I have a pop up generator. So I did a scan with Windows Defenter can came back clean. I then did a scan with every single other program I have and EVERY program came back with multiple fairly serious threats. So basically 50 viruses got past Windows Defender. So obviously it does not find viruses effectively. Do what does it do? Should I just remove it?

A:Does Windows Defender Even Do Anything? I Dont Think It Does...

Windows Defender is an anti-spyware tool not an anti-virus. Using more than one anti-spyware program increases your protection coverage. No single product is 100% foolproof and can detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security industry is in a constant state of change with new infections coming out on a daily basis. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes spyware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a layered defense using several products to supplement your anti-virus and scanning in safe mode provides the most complete protection.

Hello!

I have a problem but how to say? I don?t know what it is at all. My operating system is Windows XP Service Pack 2 Home edition and I have already completed the 5 steps before posting a Log and there are not many changes.

The symptoms:
- First time in the middle November my laptop started to act in a weird way: when I have caps lock on it will type small letters and the opposite, when I want to open a new tab in explorer it will open me a new window, when I want to use the right click options of my mouse I will have to click the left side, when I want to select one folder it will select all the folders present in the already opened one. Therefore I tried to update and run a check with my antivirus (NOD32) and Spyboot S&D but I couldn?t update them and not even run a proper check. Therefore I thought of restarting my computer and performing the check while starting up and everything turned back to normal apart the sound: the sound will not play when windows starts up or shuts down, warning messages appear or when I plug in my USB but music and movies will play normally in winamp, windows media player and similar programs. After restarting my laptop I also could update my antivirus and Spyboot S&D and run a normal check but nothing was found at the time.
- A few days ago while working on something my laptop suddenly restarted and when it came back into windows it showed me a warning saying ?the system has just recovered from a serious problem report to bla... Read more

Hi. When ever I'm playing this game EVE-online it ether crashes to desktop/reboots or freezes forever. I had been told that this might be sound card... so I changed it to SB 24bit live <<--- the soft card goes with anything. Then.. i though well maybe this is my video driver.... reinstalled it , updated it ... nothing, still does it. Than I came across this article (cant post url) that says that maybe I can debug my system and see what driver causes this.

Do you guys think that debugging will help? or maybe there is another problem? Registry? or memory? I'm going nuts here. Please help

A:[SOLVED] Windows 7 dont want to start

Hi, you will need to use your OS dvd and boot from it access the command prompt ( this loads the sources sudirectory (folder) of a Ram disk identified by the drive letter x: (I see you can do this) at the cmd prompt, which will read x:sources, type:-


Code:
bcdedit | find "osdevice"
(exactly as you see here, press enter) now when windows loads the RE (repair your computer) it does not always allocate the drive letter that your OS is on. It may be some other drive letter. This cmd tells us what drive is allocated to the OS, we use this letter in our cmds.

Assume C: (if not change accordingly)

Type the following cmd's, pressing enter after each line.


Code:
Bcdedit /export c:\BCD_Backup
c:
cd boot
attrib bcd ?s ?h ?r
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
BootRec /RebuildBcd
Restart computer, let us know how you get on.

TIP: print this out you will not have access once in the RE.

Been lookin around for a tutorial about how to make my computer detect my External HD... nothing fixed my problem, first of all : I Cant see my External HD on Disk manage

when i turn on the HD i can feel it is working... so i tryed it on my other computer... it dosnt work as well so i tryed it on my bell expressvu, it dont detect as well

any idea?

A:Windows 7 dont detect External HD

Sounds like the external drive had died. It's possible just the enclosure electronics has died and the drive itself is still okay. You can remove it from the enclosure and install it as a 2nd hard drive in your computer, mount it in another external drive enclosure or buy a USB Universal Drive adapter and connect it to your computer that way.

I have a NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter that I use for this purpose but there are many other brands available as well. Works with IDE (PATA) and SATA drives from desktop and laptop computers.

You said they do not download OR fail but then you said they failed, which is it?

Make sure you have restarted your computer since then. Try updating ONLY important updates, possibly selecting a few at a time to download and update. Let me know if it still fails. Restart>select some updates (important ones first, then slowly working your way to other updates you want to have installed)>installl>restart again. If it works keep doing this method

These two things likely don't have an effect on the updates, but try them anyway:

1. Do you know if you have all your drivers currently updated?

2. Has windows been activated yet?

I recently downloaded a game on my HP Pavilion g6 (Windows 7 Home Basic), all was well, the game was working fine and the computer hadnt picked up any corrupt files.
But the next day I turned on my laptop and it said "BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+alt+delete to restart"
Windows 7 came pre-installed on my laptop and I don't have any windows 7 installation discs or any recovery discs.
I have important files on the laptop and I cannot afford to lose it.
Please help!!!

I recently bought a Lenovo laptop that came preloaded with the usual bloatware. The only thing that caught my eye was Phone Companion. Apparently it allows you to send texts and make phone calls from you laptop and they go through your phone. It sounded kind of neat, even if I never used it.
So I started the app and the first thing it says is "Scan this QR code with your Android device to download the companion app!". It was like "what? No WP"? Just in case, I scanned the QR code anyway and of course the app doesn't exist in the Windows Phone store.
Is it strange of me to think that a Windows 8 app would have a WP companion app instead of just Android? Am I being unrealistic? I can see a normal Windows application being specific to the more popular mobile devices, but a Windows 8 app just feels like it is meant to go with Windows Phone. They share a design philosophy and language. Its like if there was a Kinect game that said "Now show your Android phone to Kinect to get started".
Is this what we can expect with Windows 10? PC/Phone combo apps that I cant run without an iPhone or Android?

Any help would be appreciated we still have a windows XP machine and it appears to have blue screened a few times, And we are trying to figure out why.

Please find below the mini dumps from the PC,

If you require hardware information then please let me know. Or any other information seeing as your guides don't include XP.
