I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The pricing is what kicks Intel in the nuts, which is great if you going for a low budget computer and don't mind not having a dedicated video card.

A:AMD launches the compact Radeon R9 Nano with high-end performance

Sorry AMD! I really really really wanted to buy this card for my new Skylake ITX build. But your performance/price is not nearly good enough. I would have bought this card for +20% (maybe even up to +30% if your hyped performance over 970 were been actually true) of nvidia GTX 970 price, but this +100% now... is just absurd. Sorry.

Did you run the network troubleshooter from right clicking the network icon in System tray?

Go over your install closely using the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will uncover most problems.

Do you have a wireless adapter you can try to compare? Change the ethernet cable? Try another ethernet port?

Hello Sam,

The tutorial below can help show you how to restore the modern Internet Explorer. Most likely you will just need to make sure that the desktop IE is set as the default program to do so.

A:software uninstalled but icon is on desktop and launches too.why?

Can't you just delete this icon? If not, then reboot.

Also, for the future, always use the Programs and Features control panel (the installed software list) to uninstall programs. Failing that,check to see if the program itself has its own uninstaller. Failing that, then turn to alternative methods.

I'm no stranger or newbie to computing by any means but I'm planning on moving to a new computer and I've found two A - K-based builds that appeal to me The first is a prebuilt semi-customized product from an eBay member while the other is a fully customized build that I've put together Please make sure you read 7870K Value for Builds Money? Which Better ? Is the entire post before responding I should mention that this machine will be used for perhaps years before being replaced by a newer machine running on a Zen- or Kaby Lake-powered processor depending on which is more attractive to me It will be used primarily for productivity purposes web development graphic design and video creation editing but I will also use it for a few games in my spare time those games being Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto V Now I know this system isn't going to run Grand Theft Auto V on its best 7870K Builds ? Which Is Better Value for Money? settings and I can fully accept that A game such as that doesn't really need to be played on the best settings anyway Videos on YouTube show it running decently well on the integrated Radeon R of the APU albeit at p and with the dedicated card in my custom configuration it's playable on a balance between medium and high at p That's more than enough for me I would also like to point out that this machine is an intended upgrade from a -year-old Core -based ASUS laptop that I've been using since I purchased it in It has been upgraded from a Celeron M to a Core Duo T the RAM from GB to GB DDR - and the hard drive to a WD Black but I think it's finally time to move to a desktop machine now that college is over It can't be upgraded any further and the RAM limitation is what really kills performance in programs such as those mentioned earlier not to mention the lousy Intel GL -based GMA X graphics Thanks to Intel's ludicrous drivers even Minecraft isn't playable beyond due to the OpenGL requirement I do think this machine will be more than adequate for my needs and considering what I'll be moving from it's definitely an upgrade and I don't require anything more I may not even upgrade in two years The competitor of the K is Intel's Core i - or i - and although it's slightly faster it doesn't offer overclocking Plus I've always suggested that four physical cores are better than four logical cores for multi-tasking Core i s and i s don't interest me nor do AMD's FX series or Athlon X models as I'd really like the OpenCL acceleration of Kaveri With the potential fanboy-inducing arguments out of the way here are the two builds Please keep in mind that the custom configuration by myself may look more expensive but I've selected components that I plan on taking over to my next build such as the case graphics card monitor and power supply Also remember that this is my first desktop computer so it will cost more to get the initial setup eBay Semi-Custom Prebuilt Build without Monitor Case CiT Galaxy Evolution Motherboard ASRock A with USB Processor AMD A - K CPU Cooler Stock Memory GB DDR - Hard Drive TB SATA-II at rpm Graphics Card AMD Radeon R with GB GDDR Monitor ASUS VE H quot p Optical Drive CD DVD SuperMulti rewriter Power Supply quot upgraded to support the R quot My Custom Build without Monitor Case Fractal Design Define R Black Motherboard ASRock FM A X Extreme Processor AMD A - K CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper EVO Memory GB G Skill Ares DDR - Hard Drive TB Seagate Barracuda SATA-III Graphics Card Gigabyte Radeon R X WindForce with GB GDDR Monitor ASUS VE H quot p Optical Drive LG GH NSB CD DVD Writer Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA NEX W PLUS Gold I should note that I plan on purchasing the processor memory and graphics card second hand The prices above for the processor and memory are brand new while the graphics card price is second hand That's because the X and X cards on Amazon right now are ludicrously over-priced compared to last year Plus when you can get a X for the price of a brand new X why wouldn't you I alrea...

Advanced Micro Devices is trying to beat Intel on price with its latest six-core desktop Phenom II X6 processors that were unveiled today.

AMD is shipping two X6 processors that are substantially less pricey than Intel's latest six-core Core i7-980XM desktop processor, which was announced last month. The Phenom II X6 1090T processor runs at 3.2GHz and is priced at $295, while the 1055T, which runs at 2.8GHz, is priced at $199. Intel's Core i7-980XM desktop processor is priced at $999, according to a price list on Intel's Web site.

The X6 chips are targeted at gamers and buyers looking for high-performance desktops, said Adam Kozak, platform marketing manager at AMD. The chips are the fastest yet in AMD's desktop processor lineup.

Do the following in that desktop:

Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.

When the small "System Configuration" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.

Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

Submit those names here in a vertical list.

Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

Is that desktop running okay, speed-wise and performance-wise?

Dunno why my pc is crashing while gaming or even hearing songs in balanced mode or with minimum processor state set below 25%. Now my question is what will happen if i chose High performance mode , will it cause any harm to my components , like shortening of life or something? If not then , can you tell what is actually causing the above mentioned problem? Is it actually the processor state or something else , i would like to add that it has happened only on 7 ( i tried 4 different versions on t\0/rrents :P ,trusted ones). I thought it may occur on vista too , but it didnt and same was for xp.

so again my questions are:
1) what is causing hangs and crashes in my 7
2) does it has something to do with processor state? If yes then what will be best mode with what % of processor state

Howdy Gents,
I'm curious: Besides being able to go with a rackmount chassis, at the hardware-level, what is the big difference between a server and a really, really powerful desktop?
 

A:Hardware question: server vs. high-end desktop

Nothing, really. Servers have more options for power, multiple CPU's, etc...

Our office uses a high end desktop for a server. Dell & HP sell Celeron and Sempron "servers" with no operating system, etc...

If you're looking at using a desktop as a server, just get the right software, a screaming processor, jam it full of RAM, and if you're doing web hosting, get a dual NIC unless your router supports the outside connection protocols.

I should have known better but I gave my son the admin passowrd so he could install software and now have this problem. Logitech Webcam and skype but not sure if that is relevant.Windows XP Pro.

When I log on I get a white icon or something over the entire desktop. I can use the start menu initially but withing a minute I get a high CPU condition and nothing responds except for ctl-alt-del which will allow me to log the user off. This only happens as one user, I'm able to log on to the other users. If I get task manager up quickly I can kill the explorer.exe process which makes the white icon and high cpu go away, but explorer does not restart and no longer have the start menu.

Hey, I am at the stage we all go through many times in our lives. Trying to decide what computer to get while your computer you have is slowly dying. I'm looking for hints on what computer might be the best for my needs as a gamer.

The main specifications i would like:

Atleaste 8gb Ram
64bit CPU
Good graphics card
Good processor
Pre-installed with Windows 7 (Home Premium is fine)
Pretty much able to handle HD games without me setting all the graphics setting and performance settings to "Ultra Low" - "Ultra High" would be nice!
Something that doesn't overheats itself while using these settings (Don't want to keep checking the heat meters anxiously )
Room for upgrades, easily accessible inside.

Not every detail is needed really but that would be a dream computer. Thank-you for your help.
 

A:Trying to choose a gaming desktop -- high performance, no overheating

If you have the cash, and no DIY confidence, go for an Alienware.
If you like DIY (like me), read up reviews of hardware which you want, go to the hardware market, buy the 'dream hardware', go home, and assemble.
Hope this helps.
Good luck!

A:W7 Black Screen when start then goes to desktop hdd activity high

Hi AzNDuDe, Welcome to SevenForums.

As you have already check with Malwarebytes, lets move to next step. Go to Task Manager and then to Process Tab. Click on Show Process from All users. Click on CPU column and sort it by highest to lowest and see which activity other than System Idle Process is taking up the CPU usage. Also, scan your PC with an antivirus.

Keep us posted.

Hi,

Your power supply is of a very poor make and is low-end, I wouldn't doubt if it was the reason for the restarting. I would recommend replacing it with a more stable PSU ASAP. Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, etc.

I've just bought a new laptop (DELL 15 7000) and installed Windows 10 on it. It's my first time using not only Windows 10 but also such a high res computer (1920 x 1080) and, obviously - everything appears very small! I've figured out how to use scaling but here's the thing - the optimal scaling it suggests, 125%, looks wonderful for my desktop and icons but for software and apps 150% is definitely better. Is there any way to combine these two?
I tried custom scaling at 125% but that changed my desktop scaling to 125% and everything else to 100% - which is pretty tiny, and very nearly the opposite of what I wanted to do.
I hope the information I've provided has been enough but if you need to know anything else about my system let me know and I'll provide more info.
Any help would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Im having a similar issues but Im sure some is taking care of my issue, someone other than me of course because my effort is endless!

I swapped Toshiba Floppy Disk, and my hard drives. I think windows told me to remove one of the jumpers on the HD and unplug the device, then start BIOS and make sure boot order is set to the HD installation WINDOWS FIRST! I have an error here but im not sure its even and error, I BELEIVE having a boot loader installed would greatly help me out here! I cannot seem to get any third party scsci devices installed, not even sure if I have any actually LLoLL, but this can be adressed elsewhere.

Problem being the boot loader im getting doesnt tell me any more information than the BIOS is re-setting its own cmos. I booted from the new HD and evertyhing seemed normal, perfect installation of a windows home edition sp2, problem is I CANNOT GET MY WESTERN DIGITAL HARD DRIVE functioning to its full capabilities, for example id like to use the via Sata Raid utility that came with my hardware and its outdated. I need to get assurance that it is infact a scsci device thats in my full control hence JBOD?RAID?BINARY

I have old notes of my classes of visual basic that have alot of KEY TERMINOLOGY that will one day be very usefull to me, just gonna have to get me either A) Some quick fix or B) Additional Help C) A mac or whatever...

I had a HD problem. I purchased a new 160 GB HD for my Laptop/Notebook. I did a fresh install of the Restore CD. Opened IE to download Firefox. Now IE launches on its own with pop-ups ads. I also purchased Norton's 360. I also have AVG Free. They both found tracking cookies that I've had them delete. I try not to use IE if at all possible. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Richard

Hey, my first suggestion is to follow this forum's 5 step procedure to removing/getting help with malware:

Read this thread and follow the instructions: http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...oval-help.html

I also try to not use IE when possible, at one point i used comodo firewall to block the program from being run by any other program. (you may want to look into this, i'm not sure if it's do-able with AVG)

Does anyone know whether Windows 7 will still be available in the stores for purchase once Windows 8 is officially launched on Oct 25th?

Perhaps someone can recall what happened to Vista when Win 7 launched.

If Win 7 is going to be pulled from the shelves, then maybe it's time to stock up before it's gone.

Of course it will. Windows 8 sucks.

A:Icon x 50 launches

Is this a desktop or laptop?
If you open a program thru Start, programs (select program) does it work normally the first time you open a program?
Just for grins, try a different keyboard if its a desktop.
I am thinking, maybe you should do a hard drive scan and let the scan try to fix bad sectors.
Then maybe run SFC scannow google that for directions.

Hi, I am operating Windows XP and if we are not connected to the internet, AOL still tries to launch automatically. This can be really annoying if you are in the middle of games etc, as it disrupts whatever you happen to be doing. Where do I look for the autolaunch file of AOL? Thanks.

A:AOL launches automatically

if i am correct go to internet explorer and then internet properties and then connection tab. Somewhere in there it will have the option to always dial a connect, never dial and only dial if... (forgot the rest)
select never dial a connection
this should fix your problem

sorry i can not get the exact wording to all of this but post back if you need more help

Once complete, it should open two Notepad Windows - OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt It should also save copies in the same location as OTL. I want you to copy and paste the contents of OTL.txt that should appear into one reply and Extras.Txt into another.

Hi,
I am trying to fix a problem for a user that I support but Word is not one of my strong suits.
Everytime the user clicks on a new Word document, it opens a completely new session of Word instead of opening within the current session.
We are experiencing this with one user on Word 97 and en-masse with Word 2000.
I have tried looking into and editing the commands in the File Association area and everything looks fine (ie: compared to a machine without the issue)
 

A:New Session of Word Launches for each new doc

I believe this is standard and unchangeable behavior with Word 2000. It was made an option with Word 2002. As for Word 97, there might be a setting to change, but I'm not aware of it.

My login does not have administrator rights.

At random intervals the run as dialogue pops up, mostly when I am not doing anything on the machine.

I click on cancel each time, but I would like to know how I can find out what launched the dialogue to enable me to decide if it is a legitimate request or a virus/malware.

This problem is occurring on two different Windows XP machines one pro amp one home After an extended period of time ranging from about hrs to days it becomes impossible to launch applications and currently running apps cannot open a pop-up window Typically I have about windows open but will have started and stopped dozens possibly hundreds of mostly console apps If I close some then it is possible to load apps but the process repeats itself requiring even more windows to be closed The only solution is to reboot and then all is well Immediately following the reboot I can open all the apps present before the reboot and many more The most useful error message I have gotten is an Event Id which is not very helpful since it seems to be a generic message used when any popup window fails Both system amp user apps are affected I have lived with it on a Dell desktop for well over a year Now I m having the same problem with a Thinkpad The Dell is hyper-threaded and the Thinkpad dual-core My other machines have been single I have not tried turning the feature off yet but I will It seems obvious to app hrs pop-ups and 24 Windows fail XP after launches me that some system resource is being used up but I cannot identify what it is I have tried shutting down all apps and trying Windows XP pop-ups and app launches fail after 24 hrs to bring the system back as close as I can to a post-boot status There is plenty of both real amp virtual memory available There is no unusual number of processes running I have Googled the problem and found two similar error reports but neither had any useful suggestions Any suggestions Frank nbsp

A:Windows XP pop-ups and app launches fail after 24 hrs

Go into task manager and go to the Processes tab. This should tell you what programs are taking up what resources. Could be one of your programs you use might close, but the process does not stop. It could be that everytime you launch it, it creates another session of it and eventually you have a bunch of extra processes going. Check that out and let me know.

Ive seen that happen with Outlook before.

A few days ago firefox starts at startup. Theres nothing listed in startup for it. Im fairly sure its not a virus or malware. Is there a tool that can monitor what causes it to pull up? The only recent changes have been setting up a vpn.

I reinstalled firefox and didnt atart on its own for about 10 boots but now it is. I have vpncheck pro that autostarts rograms and disables them when vpn is active but this occurred before that program was installed. it closes firefox after startup cause it sees no vpn. the vpn connects and reopens it like it should. So i dont think it that software..

nvm. yesterday i was doing system image restores. today just got done creating one. I think it involves windows 8 fastboot thing with shutdown vs restarting. maybe i had it open and thats why cause it doesnt happen with restart.

A:Laptop launches straight to cmd.exe

It really depends what you changed and what you deleted. If you get a command prompt, then Windows is loaded and running. There is no other command prompt in the NT series unless you have the 16-bit one.

Try running msconfig from the command prompt.

You can use Parted Magic to transfer all your files if you decide to do a factory restoration.

Parted Magic disk partitoning tool (Bootable CD image)
If you prefer a bootable USB key, download and run Linux Live USB Creator. Choose the Parted Magic distro, and it will download it and automatically create a bootable USB key.

This CD (or key) contains many useful tools. You can partition, recover files, recover lost partitions, make disk images (by several different methods), transfer files between media, scan for viruses (It can serve as an Alternative Trusted Platform for search and elimination of rootkits and bootkits), examine and benchmark hardware, access the internet, and much more.

I know it's not a Beta, but with Win7, it carried on working for a long time after launch and was cheap to purchase for the Beta testers.

What happens this time round?

A:Will testers need to purchase 8 when it launches?

Well, there have been numerous free releases including the RTM trial of enterprise which is free for anybody.

And the upgrade price of $39 is pretty low, especially in comparison to previous versions...so I don't forsee them offering it any cheaper to testers.

People doing extensive testing likely have Technet and are using that.

I don't want to get rid of realplayer because it's really good at tagging, downloading, and converting FLVs, like Youtube. But it keeps launching processes, even when I'm not using it, and the computer starts to run slower until I shut them down manually. It's annoying. Is there any way around this beyond getting rid of it?

Realplayer actually puts a little tag above FLVs, to click and download. Other programs are more awkward, and forget those web based thingies - they're time-limited and buggy. I like its abilities in that regard but I hate all those processes.
 

A:Realplayer launches too many processes

RealPlayer does install unecessary modules as Startup Items which start automatically with Windows.
Provided you know what you are looking for, you can disable them with Ccleaner from here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Install it & open it.
Click "Tools", then click "Startup".
Here, ALL your startup items are listed in one place.
Select (one at a time) anything which refers to RealPlayer or one of it's modules, then click "Disable".

When done, close Ccleaner and restart Windows. Items you've just disabled will no longer start with Windows.
If your are very confident, you can (optionally) open Ccleaner again and this time "Delete" any disabled items you definitely know you will never need.

Gotta be a corrupt registry or something, but I've got a computer that launches MS Money setup when ever I open just about any other program or My documents, Control Panel, or My computer etc.

Could this be a bad file association, so that the Windows Installer or Money Installer has been associated with opening a window or something?

Any ideas without a Wipe and reload?

A:Sleepydog Launches A Website!

Great Web site! I have some few tips for you:

1.) You may want to center your web site in the middle of the page.

2.) you main image is a little distorted. If you want a larger one you should try and upload a larger sized picture. Your Pall-Trans logo is also distorted I can't read what it says underneath it.

3.) you may want to change your title to something other then Blank (maybe Tomino Logistics)

4.) This is optional but I think it would look better if you put your addresses and telephone number in a box. (put a square around it)

Sorry if I sound mean but, I am just trying to help You !

Hi.

I was wondering is there a software like RocketDock (or some of it's alternatives) that launches when you hover in a corner (for example top right one).
I'm looking for something like this:

so that when i click on an icon or folder it opens another "quarter circle" with more folder or apps to be launched like this:

A:Is there a software like RocketDock that launches in a corner?

Nearest that I can come up with is SliderDock. Unfortunately the quarter circle option isn't an option that's included.

Hi,

I recentely noticed that Internet Explorer launches itself in background. I ran ProcessExplorer in SafeMode and it showed no Internet Explorer program running. However as soon as I ran explorer from the command of Process Explorer, Internet Explorer would launch in background. I can kill it but it comes back after a little while.

I ran Spybot but it did not show anything.

I ran HijackThis and saved the log.

Please help me, thanks.

You are running your battery down using the screensaver. Just have it go to sleep. It may be something that is a task, that could be causing the camera to wake up, when you go to use it.

Hi everyone. i have a weird one here. At first it seemed to be an Exchange related issue, but when I logged on as another user the same issue happened. I tried a detect and repair which did nothing, so I completely uninstalled Office 2003 and rebooted. After I reinstalled, the application complained about the previous attempt and asked if I wanted to start in Safe Mode. Well, it has been about 15 hours and still Outlook is trying to launch. Obviously something is still cached somewhere, possibly the Application Data folder? This computer is up to date for Hotfixes and event viewer only has generic "Application Hangs" in the logs. Anyone know if there are registry entries that need to be dumped or files left behind in the Application Data folder? Thanks

I have been working with Cybertech (here on TechGuy Forums) to speed up my computer, clean up my startup procedures (using msconfig) and deleting unwanted programs but nothing we did can explain why I have this unusual problem now.

When I start up my computer, the Registry Editor Screen pops up with MUICache highlighted. The path is: Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache. This does not cause me any problems; it's just an annoyance.

Can anyone explain why this screen appears and how to stop it?

I recently started having problems opening MS Word 2003 so I uninstalled all Office 2003 products and did a reinstall. That did not solve the problem, I searched and found a few solutions including deleting the normal.dot file, but it does not exist on my PC.
Any assistance is appreciated.

hi there.

My firebox browser launches after about 3 mins after i click on it, and this suddenly started happening after it got upgraded to 3.6.3 ( i guess so).

Hoping for some assistance in this matter.

Try uninstalling it, and then reinstalling it.

Hello Eknirb,

You may need to adjust your double click speed a bit to see if that may help from the Mouse page in the Control Panel (Classic View). It may be to sensitive.



Hope this helps,

Hi guys I'm setting up an archive process to store old files on an external hard drive The computer in question is running Windows Pro bit We have a server folder with files in it most of which are pretty small below k I'm trying to use robocopy in a batch file to do this It was working fine the other day now all it does upon launch is sit there It shows me all the options and whatnot and also lists the number of files in the directory and the directory itself but it never gets past that line If I switch the destination to the local C drive it eventually starts copying files Is there something in my batch file that and launches Robocopy then sits there hangs/just needs to change Or could there be a Robocopy launches and then hangs/just sits there problem with the external Western Digital drive that I'm using Here is the one line batch file I have Code robocopy quot cgifp Prepress Public ImportedPDF quot quot E OldFiles quot R W MINAGE MOV B XJ XF quot blank test pdf quot Any help would be great thanks Nate

A:Robocopy launches and then hangs/just sits there

Well for anyone else struggling with the same problem, here's how I got around it. I changed the batch file to copy from the network location to a temp folder on the external drive. Then I have another line that does a robocopy from the temp location to the actual archive folder. I have no idea why that works, but it does. It doesn't make any sense to me, since robocopy is still having to copy files into the external directory, but maybe since it's not copying from the network it works better. I have no idea. All I know is that it works now.

I have been getting random BSODs recently even after a fresh install of Windows 7. This can happen at any time, often when I am browsing or playing video games. It sometimes can even happen while the computer is idling.

The BSODs are really unexpected for the most part and don't happen under the same circumstance always.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.




   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.



   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

If Memtest86+ does not find any errors with ram run Windows Memory Diagnostics for 7-8 passes following its tutorial: Memory Diagnostics Tool

Let us know the results.

Hello

If you go to the following directory on your machine:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp

Are there any files in there? it sounds like you may have a HTML file or internet short cut in there.
Anything in this folder will start up automatically when you log in, delete anything you don't want to start up.

Hello and Welcome!

The dump files are missing from the list. If you use CCleaner or any such software it will delete the files so once you get crash go to C:\Windows\Minidump and collect the files and attach it here.

Regarding the crashes I think the problem is multiple Virus protection programs. You have Zone Alarm, Panda Cloud and Spyware Search&Destroy. The combination of multiple antivirus and firewall are well known for such crashes.

I would recommend to remove all of them (For time being) and just install Microsoft Security Essentials and see if it crashes. If not then install either Panda or Zone Alarm (not both). IMO Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall is more than enough. Zone Alarm is notorious for BSOD.

Run SFC/ SCANNOW to make sure all the system files are intact.

Hope this helps!

Hello Friends

I want to point out something why Microsoft launching too many versions of win7 . all beta versions r confusing or its a new marketing style of Microsoft.
if they have an expert team (all engineers) etc. then why they confuse us by launching too many beta versions. simulteniously. if they want to test there versions in between public then after launching v7000 they stop suddenly. and after one month the launches too many beta versions . why ?

A:why microsoft launches too many versions of win7

They don't publish many versions, there are leaks and we download them.

In reality, Microsoft has:
- Beta 1
- RC1
- RC2 ?
- Final

It could be the problem is the KEYBOARD. If you had a desktop system, it would be easier to find out if this is the case.

The only thing I know to suggest: do you have access to a keyboard you can plug into the laptop for test purposes?

Hi people, found your forum via Google. I have an issue with Windows 7 Professional.

It is a new install (2 days old) and every time it is booted it launches into start up repair. Is there anyway I can completely disable it so this doesnt happen?

After it goes through it boots correctly but still comes up after a clean shut down. Also, if we reset the PC during startup repair then manually tell it to boot normally, it does so successfully.

I have a one week old Gateway with Home Premium and a Verizon Express Card. As soon as the Express Card was activated in the Verizon store, Media Center launched and continues to launch every 6-20 seconds over any web page. Gateway blamed Verizon. Verizon directed me here to a tutorial to disable Media Center. I disabled all the Media Center files to include: Extender Service, Receiver Service, Scheduler Service, Service Launcher, and Network Sharing Service. I restarted the computer. Media Center still launches! How can this be? I went back and checked each file - sure enough they all show Media Center disabled. Can Vista Home Basic or Vista Business strip out Media Center? I will never use this feature. Short of bringing the computer back to Office Depot, any suggestions? Thanks.

A:Media Center Continously Launches

Media Center lives in the c:\windows\ehome\ directory, the main exe is ehshell.exe (or something like that i'm doing this from memory) try renaming ehshell.exe to ehshell1.exe or something, windows might not let you do this but its worth a shot.
