I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hey, Fellas, I'm back.
Lately when I've tried looking at different folders and files on my hard drives I keep getting "Windows Explorer has stopped working and will restart." It's driving me nuts, I can barely do anything.
Also, same thing with Internet Explorer...I'm getting real sick of Vista's shoddiness..

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.


A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

I have used "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP) listing my ACDC file viewer. I listedACDC because after it completes normally each time, there is an error message that says "Application has stopped working." I no longer want to see this error message.I use ACDC 7 for viewing and editing graphic files, here with this Windows 7 (64) system.

I usually select files with Windows Explorer, and they open using ACDC.

When I close the last file viewed, I get this error message that says "ACDSee 7.0 Application has stopped working"Installations of this ACDC on other Windows 7 computers do not have this issue. So I need to resolve it.

Need help here,

I've installed Win XP pro with no service packs onto a machine that had Win XP home SP2 (because they lost the recovery disks), now none of the usb 2.0 ports work. I remembered that SP2 has the drivers for usb 2.0 after I'd installed it. Can't download SP2 either.

Tried updating the USB driver and am told i'm missing file usbehci.sys

Looked everywhere on the net for it and ended up in survey hungry sites that that don't deliver drivers as promised.

Any ideas???

Client keeps getting the IE stopped working message.
We did a "Reset" of IE through the Control panel.
We uninstall IE 11 and have IE 10 installed. But it also get the error.

Error log states that there is a error with Kernelbase.dll in C:\Windows\sysywow64
I have seen "Fixes" to remove this file but then there have been postings about it being a system file and NOT to remove it.

Is it safe to delete or rename this kernelbase.dll file?

I see a lot of REGISTRY Cleaners out there that say they will clean up this error, but I do NOT trust the cleaner?
Will CCleaner solve this issue?

Or is there a GOOD SAFE remover for this error?

IE will not stay running but we do have Chrome running. The client is like me he does not want anything but IE for a browser.

Hi all.

I'm running xp home SP3 I have tried a different keyboard and tried a variety of searches on the net, all to no avail.

It probably has something to do with SP3 but the win key does nothing, nada, zilch. It wont even bring the start screen up.

I would very much appreciate your help with this exercise in frutration.

Many thanks.

A:win key has stopped working

The easiest way to test is to plug in a different keyboard into your computer, and to plug in your keyboard into another computer. If the keyboard works fine in another computer, then it's your configuration. If it also fails to work in a different computer, then the problem is probably the keyboard. As for configuration problem I wouldn't know where to start. Make sure you have a 104 or 105-key keyboard as your keyboard in your settings (rather than a 101-key keyboard, which doesn't handle the windows key).

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop 1525 that I purchased only a month ago. My dvd mysteriously and suddenly stopped working. It isn't listed under 'my computer'. In device manager it has an exclamation point and when I click to see what the error is it reads, 'This device cannot start (code 10)' It says 'Could not load driver software.' I have tried to update the driver but it says that it is up to date. I have uninstalled the dvd and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have done a system restore to a point that I know it was working but it didn't fix it. The only other thing I can think of is restoring factory settings but I'm hoping I won't have to resort to that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

click here to go to dell support site.
Click downloads
Identify your computer (or you can give it permission by Choose by Tag/Find My Service Tag let it identify your machine
You'll get a page with all drivers for all devices that are a Dell option for that machine
Check the name of the DVD device (per Device Manager) and find this exact device listed among Dell's DVD drivers (they usually sell several different ones, and they all have drivers listed. Make sure you pick right one)
Download the file
Uninstall the old device
Double click on the driver download file and it will do the rest

I have XP SP2. I bought an iPod and everything was working OK until one time when I plugged in the iPod, the computer suddenly blocked. I turned off the computer and unplugged the iPod from the front port. After I turned the computer on, none of the USB ports were working. In the device manager, everything was working fine. I tried to reinstall the drivers, but nothing improved.

Can anyone offer any help? Could it be that I just burned the ports after I unplugged the iPod (but the computer was already turned off) ?

THanks for any help whatsoever. I know a little about PC, so you can get into more details if you want.

Thanks again.

go back into device manager, and look at the Universal serial bus controllers section. right click on each entry under that and select uninstall, unless it's like a USB camera, sometimes those show up. Get all the USB hubs and controllers though.

My copy of IE 7 just stopped working. Just like that. This precipitated a general reinstall which was a bit overdue anyway but anyone any ideas? Email and FireFox worked (when installed as a temporary fix) without problems.
I reset all the security settings to default - no improvement.
The reinstall cleared the error but a friend has just called me to say the same has happened to him - might this have been caused by a dodgy windows update?
Kaspersky found nothing and a HiJackThis scan was clear.

I've been seeing IE has stopped working more and more frequently. Today I've seen it twice. Other than changing default browsers or going back to version 8, can anything be done to fix IE9 so it will stop closing?

Hi Duchess,

My name is Mekh and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. Other than the two options you have mentioned, one other way is to Restore IE to Default Settings.
Check the below KB article how how to reset IE.

Hi people.

Has anyone been able to get GTA V working on Windows 10? (Pro x64) As soon as I launch it I get the "NSanityHD has signed in." at the Social Club launcher and then just as it attempts to launch the game it crashes. I've been trying to figure this out for the past few days since I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate. (3 days ago) I've tried to update my Radeon R9 280X drivers as well. The game was working fine on Windows 7. (???)

Also C&C Red Alert 2 AND Battlefield 3 just refuses to launch. The only game I've been able to play without issues is Counter-Strike: Source. I've tried to verify the integrity of the game files using a shortcut with the "-verify" parameter with no luck. (GTA V is the Social Club/Rockstar Games version, not the Steam one)

You can try right clicking the game launcher and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility" it may be able to fix any issues.

My CD-Rom has stopped working. I was listening to an audio book on Windows Media Player when it froze up right in the middle of a track. I closed WMP and re-opened it. It said to insert a disc. I rebooted my computer, it still did not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive. I've tried several different discs, and different types. My Computer does not acknowledge them either.

I then tried uninstalling and re-installing the driver. Still does not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive, but the troubleshooter still continues to tell me the drive is working properly. It is spinning when I put in a new disc, but says there isn't one there. I'm stuck. What else can I try? Isn't it odd that it would stop working while I was listening to it??

A:CD ROM stopped working

Greetings,   Sorry for bloviating. Try to keep replies short. Device Manager hardware status will not necessarily reveal a tangible hardware problem.. You could disconnect the SATA cable on a CD/DVD drive but there will be no errors in Device Manager. This also implies a SATA port could fail but you would not see an error for this drive in Device Manager. Device Manger will alert you when there is a driver problem. So no drive errors in Device Manager does not rule out hardware failure. HP is not providing Win 10 drivers for your PC because this model was first introduced by HP in 2011. I have been using PC's long before the advent of CD/DVD drives and have never seen this type of problem. You are not alone, this issue seems to happen when upgrading to Win 10. Don't know what Microsoft techs did. The only thing I can think of to to Open "Control Panel." "Device Manager". Uninstall or remove the current device found in "DVD/CD Rom drives". If you get a prompt asking to completely remove the drivers select "YES". Reboot the PC.  Maybe Win 10 will give you better drivers after the reboot. You can also do a USB stick install of Win !0 and keep files and apps if Win 10 has activated. This may fix the problem. As always, back up the good stuff first. Other options are to replace the hardware or go back to the previous operating system. If the fault follows the rollback to the previous operating system then the drive, or a connection, or the motherboard has a problem.  Cheers!

Put in disc (audio/data/blank)
Close tray
Drive spins, read light flickers
Tray opens

I can't get it to read/work properly. I flicked through device manager and everything looks normal. Opened up the box and double check all cables (gave everything a bit of a clean while I was in there). Is it just a case of a drive getting old and dying or is there a fix for such a problem?

As this has already been identified as a problem for many Chrome users, I can only suggest that you try and run Chrome with a minimum number of Windows open simultaneously and see if that fixes your issue. You also might want to check your RAM allocation in Task Manager when this happens to make sure you have adequate free RAM available at the time of the incident.

Just today, I started getting notification in a pop up box:

IE has stop working.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Window will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

And this is followed by actual closing of the current program on the screen. This does not pop up on all sites...just seemingly on selected ones including on line banking, live mail and yahoo mail... to name a few. (luckily Vista Forum site is not affected)

I ran MSE twice and came up clean. No malwares. The only software I installed prior to onset of this problem was Flash player 10..which I have since deleted to no avail.

At least I think it was KVG.exe. I'll update when it pops up again if I remembered the name wrong.

I've Googled this and it seems there is a real Windows file by that name. The error I get every 15 mins or so just says the file has stopped working so I don't know if it's the real file being attacked or if it's a virus trying to pass itself off as that file, which is being apprehended by my system at some point.

I've noticed that when I try to burn files to DVD it's failed far more since this.

I have an Alienware laptop. The DVD+RW drive worked fine for about a year. All of a sudden it has stopped working, of course as soon as the warrenty was over. It acts like there is wrightable media in the drive at all times. It does not matter if the drive is empty or have a CD or DVD in it.
The drive is a N DVDRW SDW-042, firmware version D360. I have updated anti-virus, scanned all drives, and done spy ware scans. I have used two different anti-virus programs to help ensure that all virus were found. The way the laptop is set-up, to use my second hard drive I must remove the DVD drive. When the second hard drive is installed it works just fine. With this in mind, I am assuming that the rest of the hardware is fine.

uhhh something else burned when the RAM failed are you sure the rest of the RAM is good maybe are they in the b slots instead of the a slots ??? anyway when RAM fails the symptoms are exactly as described and since you know one failed another may be bad as well did you determine which stick was the bad one any chance you took the good one out and left a bad one ????
Take all the sticks out put one in and power up one at a time if nothing with any then something is fried if it comes on with one of the sticks but not others then you found which were bad and proved your system is still good

hope you find a bad stick and not a fried mother board

For no apparant reason (I haven't made any changes to my system etc), my Pioneer DVD-115 DVD-ROM Drive is no longer working properly. My computer is about a year old running XP Professional.

Data CD's - Autoplay will not work, but the cd's contents can be examined in windows explorer

Music CD's - Recognized and autoplay with no problems

DVD's - Not recognized at all. The drive just keeps spinning without revving down and Windows doesn't act like there's even a CD in the drive. Trying to open the drive in windows explorer causes a lockup.

Trying to open the drive with no cd in it causes an error message to pop up that says "incorrect function"

I tried using system restore, but it didn't solve the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Welcome to the Forum,

It sounds like your DVD\CD Rom is bad. Do you have a warunty on your PC? If you do I would send it back and get a new DVD\CD rom.

Anyone else got same issue? and/or has some way to solve it?
Thanks in advance.

Well, my moms hdd went to hell for whatever reason, so i figured that since i had 2 HDDs in my computer, that i would take the spare one i had (never use it) and let her use it. Well it wouldnt work in her computer, it kept going to a screen that said press F1 to boot and f2 for setup options or something like that. So i figured i would put it back in my computer, and now neither of my hdds work, not the primary or the spare i had. Does anyone know the problem? All i know is the one when its booted has that F1 to boot thing, and the primary hdd i had, when it tries to boot, it says disk read error or something along those lines. Should i just get a new HDD?

A:HDD stopped working, help please

Sounds like you didn't install your HDD properly. When you put it in your mother's computer, dud you set it as master? Also, you need to install Windows or clone her old HDD to yours (sometimes you can do this even if the old HDD doesn't boot.)

My CPU fan just stopped working

Well I was trying to overclock my computer and I did it. But then my computer started to make some wierd sounds so I put my processer back to 2.4GHz and then it said that my CPU fan failed and some other fans any one have any clue to see if I can fix this??

A:My CPU just stopped working

The first thing I'd recommend is opening the case and switching it on (conforming to antistatic regulations etc) and seeing what's spinning. I'm not sure what fans you have, but you'll at least have a CPU fan. See if it's running properly. If it's not, it could possibly be that you've burnt out your CPU and there is no need for the CPU fan to spin. Can't speak from experience, but I'd guess this is a common problem when it comes to overclocking. Do you get any visuals? BIOS? OS? Boot-screen?

OK, I have just noticed that my del key no longer works, and i don't know why. I remember it working a couple days ago, but now it doesn't.

I thought it may be a keyboard issue (I have a logitech wireless keyboard & mouse) but reading the forums, another user suggested trying the on-screen keyboard to check.

I checked using the OSK, and the del key doesnt work on that either.. so I don't believe it is a keyboard or keyboard software issue..

Would anyone have any suggestions? It is not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying.. you don't realise how often you use it for things until you don't have it.

NOTE.. I restarted windows, and discovered that the Delete key DOES work at the initial login screen, but once windows has fully loaded up, it stops working.. not sure how that is relevant, but am sure it is.

Yesteday, I turned on my computer and everything stopped working. I get these little pop up messages from windows saying, " Wndows Live Messenger has stopped working", "itunes has stopped working", "datasafe online has stopped working",etc. I restored my computer to an earlier checkpoint, but it still does the same thing. I also have DEP turned on for essential Windows programs if this helps.

A:Everything has stopped working

Welcome to Seven Forum, Kage.

What did you do in the last session before you shut down? Did you mess around with the Registry? Did you install some new Programs? Have you kept an image of your C Drive?

Additionally please fill up your computer's specs as best as you can and carry out a virus check if you are able to.

Good Day

Last night I started to get a pop-up window saying "DWM.Exe has stopped working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you when if a solution is available"

I did an internet search for the problem and besides sites telling me to buy their fixer programme, the only sensible advice was to restore the computer to the last restore point date.

Is this an acceptable and permanent solution and is it the only solution. Will it fix the root cause of this problem?

Running Win7 64 Bit.

First off,hello and thank you for your time.

Almost all of my games I try to play keep crashing into " .exe stopped working". I can run them, but about 10 minute mark (most of the time even sooner), they just crash and say that. I tried reinstalling them, different games and almost all of them do that. In some cases I just get to the menu and when I start playing they just drop. Even those that didn't do that before, I have been playing them for about a hour for example and now I can't do that. I just don't know what to do.

Thanks for any advice.

As stated in my post of today, built-in DVD player player stopped working.  Would like to add that DVD/ CD Drives Properties analysis under "genral" tab states that device is working properly.  Please advise.

A:CD Rom stopped working

DVD player has without warning stopped working, rejects all CD from player slot.  Although  recent upgrade to Windows 10may have affected  player (which I am exploring with them to correct if needed) I do have VLC media player installed which should be an adeqaute substitute. Possible mechanical problem with player? Please advise.

I have a brand new toshiba laptop model satellite 200gb hhd and 3 gig sdram amd turion x2duall core mobile processor rm-70. i dont know if any of that is relevent, but i keep getting this box popping up that says "En-us has stopped working" I havno idea what it is or what it means.Please help. and sorry for anytypig errors and spacing errors my space key dosent work very well.

A:En-us has stopped working

From the web, this message appears to be related to a program that is running at startup called, TOSCDSPD.exe.

"CD/DVD Drive Acoustic Silencer
From CastleCopsWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Software supplied by Toshiba to acoustically silence noise vibration from the laptop's CD player due to poorly balanced CD's. The program slows the CD player to reduce the vibration generated noise.

The program may be run all the time, or started when needed. The program runs automatically at startup in the default installation from Toshiba"

More info on it

I'm not sure what would cause the message, but the program is considered non essential.

You can stop it from running by doing
Start > Run > MSCONFIG
and UNselecting the entry for that app.
(most likely looks like C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TOSCDSPD\TOSCDSPD.EXE)

Reboot. You will get a warning screen about making the change. Select the Don't Show Me Again option.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and the fan just stopped working. I have turned it off to see if it will reset itself and start working again, but I think I will need to replace it. Problem is, I don't know what I have to get or how to replace it. What kind of fan do I have to get? I can probably figure out how to replace it. I am also wanting to upgrade the hard drive so this should be a good time to do it all since I can't do any work on it right now.

A:Fan stopped working

The only dd 2400 I saw on the net is a desktop. Now, which fan stopped?

I can't switch programs using Alt-Tab. Also, clicking the icon of a running program in the taskbar doesn't work either. When I click a taskbar icon, it just flashes the icon and title bar of the program 7 times and does not bring the program to the front.

I'm running Windows 7 x64. I ran sfc /scannow and it found no problems.

I read a post on this forum that described a similar problems, but none of the proposed solutions worked. Anyone have any ideas?

A:Alt-Tab Stopped Working

This possibly sounds a little strange but try switching your laptop off, removing the power adapter and battery for a minute and then switch it back on and see if it works.

You could also try tapping the 2 Windows, Shift, CTRL and ALT keys to make sure none of them are stuck down a little, if they are these will cause adverse affects.

Last thing i can suggest at this stage is remove any peripherals you have connected such as an external keyboard or mouse and see if the problem persists.

I'm working on my girlfriends computer (windows xp) and notice the cd-rom is no longer working.

I've tried a couple of things that were recommended through another site.

1) I turned "SAFE MODE" on and the cd-rom worked fine but when I got out of safe it wound not fire up.

2) I uninstalled the cd-rom and let the computer reinstall it but that did'nt work either. Please any help you could give me would be great. Thanks.
