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.)

Hello!

It may seem like a simple problem, but I know nothing of the subject and I've had the problem for ages.

Whenever I copy large files (Movie size, think 700MB+), the copy progresses very fast (~100MB/s) until it reaches about 99% where it gets stuck for about 30 seconds to a minute, and it says "Time remaining: 5 seconds" during all that time.

I have this problem with any flash drive, in any USB port (2 & 3). It also happens when copying to network drives and external harddrives, which leads me to think it's a software/windows issue.

Some vital information:

The flash drive I mainly use is USB 3.0, quite new and easily capable of ~150MB/s writing speeds. It reaches about 120-130 MB/s during the copy until the final point where it still says 130 MB/s but does nothing for 30 seconds.

USB port is also 3.0, and I've also tried every single other port in my computer. None are broken, and none ever show any signs of being slow.

The flash drive is NTFS formatted, but it used to be FAT32. I ran checkdisk to see if there was anything wrong, but there wasn't. It's NTFS since I occasionally need files >4GB.

I tried using TeraCopy to bypass the issue, but this way doesn't reach speeds of over 20MB/s which takes even longer in the end. It does fix the 'hanging at 99% issue'.

I tried converting the drive back to FAT32, which removes the issue of it hanging at 99%, but again the speed doesn't go above 20MB/s which means it takes longer in the end, making it not worth it.

What bothers me is that the files transfer at the maximum speed right until the very end, where it just magically gets stuck for 30 seconds or more, before finishing like nothing happened.

Please advise!!

P.S.: I shamefully have to admit I never safely remove my hardware. Click to expand...

Although I've had the same happen on my downloads, this "P.S.: I shamefully have to admit I never safely remove my hardware." could be part of the problem, good luck.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

This happens almost every time I connect any one of my flash memory modules, USB, SD-Card, CF.

I get this message:

Well, I've scanned and scanned and scanned and there is never a problem found. After dealing with these false alarms for months, I'm now asking if there is a fix for this?

Bought 4 PNY 16GB USB thumb drives and every time I try to format them, the computer kicks back that they are write protected. Have tried ALL the solutions listed and explained in the 10 forums here, and nothing works to disable the write protection on my machine. Tried diskpart, Command Prompt, and Computer Configuration and nothing resolves my problem. BTW, there's no switch on these USB drives.
Anybody know of a fix?

Hi, 
DiskPart is a text-mode command interpreter in Windows family. This tool enables you to manage objects (disks, partitions, or volumes) by using scripts or direct input at a command prompt.
As Robert mentioned, please run CMD as administration, and use this command to clear read-only attribute on your flash drive.

Hi..
Every time I turn on my PC it doesn't get passed "Detecting IDE drives". Up until recently it wouldn't open at all (didn't even give signal to the screen). I fixed (or so I thought) that by changing the power cable with the one from my old computer and by opening the Tower and cleaning the fan. When it opened first time it got up to the point where the WINDOWS (XP Home to be exact) are loaded and it restarted itself. Not Safe Mode made a difference. I turned it off and tried again. After several such failed attempts it stuck where I wrote at the beginning.
Any suggestions to fix it?

A:Stuck on "Starting Windows", Repair Shows "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted"

Hi Stan, Hopefully I can help you out....or at least lead you in the right direction. From my experience, the symptoms you are suggesting sound like perhaps a dying Hard drive.

1. Do you have the windows 7 boot disks that came with your computer or when you bought the Operating System? If so, you could try and insert one of those and boot from it, and attempt to repair the installation. (this won't affect your data, only the windows system files).

2. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a fresh reinstall of windows 7, and see if that works.

3. If neither of those work, its likely that because of the fact that when windows is repairing itself, it is generally putting copies of its system files in the same physical location on your disk. Because your disk is obviously not completely dead, ie....its still loading to the windows 7 startup screen, its just copying files to the bad sectors on your hard drive and gets stuck when loading. This is especially my guess because you said Safe mode is having same problems, even after attempting to repair. In the past, I've tried and salvage a disk by reformatting it and only leaving on partitions which do not contain the bad clusters. This takes some time, and some guess work.....and really this is only a "bandaid" fix because once the disk has bad clusters, its only a matter of time before these things give out. You wouldn't want to trust your important data on it anyways....

I hope this leads you in the right direction.

Hey, I posted this on a very old thread with the same BSOD but after a few days I didn't get anything so thought maybe I'd better post my own thread.

If that was the wrong assumption, my apologies.

I've attached my files below, lemme know if I'm missing anything. I've also enabled drive verifiers.

Edit.

I've had verifiers on for two days, as of posting this. So far no BSODs.

A:Flash drive's "active" light doesn't turn off in Vista when "safely removed"

have done a litte research and testing in my lab on several machines and have confirmd the problem. What it seems to indicate to me is that, in Vista, the light simply indicates power, not data transfer. Whenever I am transferring data, the light blinks.

While I have never actually tested it, I do not belive that the "safely remove" feature actually kills all power to the USB port in XP. If that is the case, then there is really no danger as long as vista has acknowledged the disconnect and knows not to try to write data to the drive.

When they send mail the mail gets sent no problem but about a quarter of the time the frame of the message remains. The border is there but the main text field is transparent. It'll stay there until it's closed.

It's not exactly mission critical but it's rather odd and I haven't been able to do anything about it so far

I've searched around the forums and all I can seem to find are people with one or two dead pixels (the absolute max I saw was 8). On the left side of my monitor, I have an extremely large amount of dead pixels. It's about the size of two quarters. It started out small (as a single pixel - then a single line - then a large blob). I've tried just about everything to get rid of it. I've tried massaging it out, using websites/software like www.jscreenfix.com, to no avail. I really don't have the money for a new monitor. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi.

I accidentally pulled the plug out of my computer when it was in the middle of shutting down. Now that I've tried to reboot it, I get a screen saying:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode With Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally

Whenever I click on any of the options above, I always ends up back at the same screen, suggest the above options again. I've tried rebooting I again a few times but nothing works?

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Note I can't take any screen shots because my problematic laptop won't even start up fully So as a bit of background my -year-old Toshiba A -S laptop battery has been horrible for "configuring down..." stuck updates" "shutting after in Laptop ages as in my laptop MUST Laptop stuck in "shutting down..." after "configuring updates" be plugged in at all times or else it will immediately spontaneously turn off without a proper shut-down It also spontaneously turns off it it overheats or starts working too hard or something so I don't use it very much - but it's where I keep all my music and movies and I've been gradually transferring these files to other devices which is why I still use it occasionally Anyway nights ago I downloaded and installed updates and after taking a while to install updates it stayed on the quot shutting down quot screen for a long time And when I woke up the next morning it was STILL on the quot shutting down quot screen - and it had been hours by that point I was actually very surprised that it hadn't spontaneously turned off overnight So I did a force-turn-off because I thought it would start up ok Today I turned on the computer figuring it would boot up ok So we get to the start-up screen - it even spends a mere split second on the usual improper-shut-down-how-would-you-like-to-start-up screen it usually spends seconds on that screen and it goes through quot configuring updates quot and this took a while and then it went back to the quot shutting down quot screen And it was stuck there for about minutes before I did another force-turn-off and turned it on again because sometimes something that doesn't work one time does indeed work the next time But not this time It went through the same quot configuring updates quot and quot shutting down quot screens and it's now been stuck on quot shutting down quot for about minutes So what can I do to fix it I can't figure out how to get it to fully boot up because paragraph above just happens over and over again Will I have to take out the hard drive and finally retire my computer Would I be able to take out the hard drive and recover my files Thank you

have you tried to access it via the IP address rather than hostname? It may be DNS causing an issue

For example in the Windows Explorer navigation bar type the following

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look at this Microsoft article: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

When the system file checker runs it creates a log file, which should help you pinpoint which file couldn't be repaired.

However, if you can't get into Windows you might want to check this tutorial: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

Did your partner create a set of Dell recovery discs or does she have a Windows 7 DVD?

If all else fails, you may have to re-install Windows.

I have Acer laptop Win7 Pro x64 SP1. When I try to shut down or restart my system it gets stuck at either "logging off" stage or sometimes it gets past that but hangs up on "shutting down". I've let them run for over an hour & nothing happens. I have to hold down the Power button to turn off machine. Upon reboot the system say there was a problem during shut down do you want
to "restart normally" "safe mode" etc.. Now when I go into safe mode I can close down no problem. I have tried "boot to last known good config" doesn't help. I don't think there was a "restore point" made to go back to. Why is this happening & how can I fix it.
Thanks!

A:PC gets stuck during "Logging off" & "Shutting down".

If safe mode doesn't have that problem it will most likely be a bad or incompatible third-party device driver that's causing it, since safe mode doesn't load any third-party drivers.

Typically the bad driver will be the one that was installed last, just before the problem was first noticed.

A:Solved: Transfer of " C " and " D " drives

You can transfer your data, but not system files. If this is related to your previous post about optical media, is it safe to assume you do not do regular backups of your data? If so, now's a good time to start. Buy a portable external hard drive, and use that to transfer your data from one system to another. Then use it to make frequent, regular backups of your data on the new system.

Ever since I updated Ad-Aware to SE 1.06, when I first start the program, it takes almost 30 seconds while it says "loading definitions" before the program comes up and is ready to run a scan. The old version never would hang like that. So I just wanted to make sure that there's not a problem or something going on that shouldn't be.

Any thoughts?

Help!

My HDD recently crashed and I'm trying to recover my Outlook.pst file using the Windows Recovery Console - logged in as the Administrator. I can see the files just fine with a "dir" command. However, when I try to "copy" the file I get "access denied". There has to be a way around this? Is there some way to change the attributes such that I can copy it?

Thanks,

A:how to override "access denied" when copying files in Windows Recovery

I don't think you can do this with the recovery console. By default, for security reasons, the recovery console will only allow access to the root of all drives plus the Windows folder. There is a registry setting that will change this, but you can't change that with recovery console.

Everytime I try to install windows, it skips the "Copying Window Files" within a couple of seconds to 100%. I've tried burning the disc image from another computer and even at a slower rate since I thought the disc was corrupt but this didn't help either. I even tried a bootable USB, no luck too. Even though the installation completes, I get to the screen where it says setting up computer for first time then it restarts never getting to the actual desktop screen. If anyone can help me out that'd be great

A:Windows Installation skips "Copying Window Files"

The Copying Files quickness is normal. The problem may be with a driver starting up.

Try entering the Device Manager during install to disable any erroring (!) drivers - likely the display driver: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

If that fails wipe the HD before reinstall with Diskpart Clean Command to get the cleanest possible slate.

Make sure you're waiting long enough for it start after reboot. Sometimes there can be delays.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

When this happens it only stays up for half a second and then it flashes off and all the icons on the desktop disappear for about 4-5 seconds and then they reappear. In addition to that my Norton Internet Secuity 2005 self shutdown (or don't start) at the beginning. I didn't download/launch any suspicious file but I begin to think it's a virus, and if so, how could I deal with it?

Same thing when 3dmark03 is done with the 4 game tests and resets to test 1, my monitor goes black similar to icewind dale 1.
at one point, vundo even caused my monitor to display out of range error, but it was like this again after i removed alot of it in safe mode.

A:XP "Error copying file or folder" message

Thankfully you didn't try "moving" it, sometimes from doing this it vanishes from the source (as wanted) and never gets to the destination (due to out of memory error)

I've seen this myself, it's to do with system resource on your PageFile amount of Ram being used and the CPU coming in trying to process it all.

In most cases I have run CCleaner first then copied the large file(s) across without fuss.
It's just all the temp files together and Windows thinking that memory is low when it's just the processing of this memory in a temporary location (being %temp% usually)

WMP may have never worked because I never tried to use it until I got my Sansa c250 I was told to use WMP to sync my songs to it. This is how/when I learned of my WMP problem.

I have tried and tried to find what might be conflicting with WMP to no avail. I have tried all available versions of WMP and they all stop responding within 15 to 20 seconds of startup.....every time.....not just now and then, but every time I open it.

Hi,


First, please be ensured that you have installed all the latest drivers (such as video card)and all the updates.


Then I suggest you use the
System File Checker tool to scan the system files and then try to test the issue in
Clean Boot mode.


If it works in Clean Boot mode, please try the steps in the KB to narrow down the application.


Hope this helps.

A:Internet Connection "breaks" every 3 seconds

This will sound like a cop-out, but unfortunately I'm probably correct. There have been other cases of Vista not playing nice with some Linksys routers. The solution will probably have to be a different operating system or different router.

I see that your ESET is not updated. Outside chance that is a problem, so I suggest you uninstall it to test.

You could (much easier if your computer is a laptop) try an ethernet connection and try it on somebody else's (or free public hotspot) wireless network.

I would be trying a Live CD of Puppy Linux or Ubuntu, but depending on your familiarity with them and on whether your wireless adapters are supported in Linux that could be way more effort for you than it's worth.

What did I do this time! All of a sudden I have one system running W8.1 Update 1 that boots up and then takes ~15 seconds to refresh the desktop Icons. Windows is on an SSD. I tried deleting and rebuilding the Icon File using one of the BAT files recommended the last time I had a desktop Icon issue but that does not cure the problem. I have W8.1 Update 1 on a couple of other systems and they seem to act normally. Any clue on what I did or did not do or what to look for that would cause this situation to develop?

A:Computer "hangs" when copying from SD-card

an SD card which has all files in the root directory is always a problem --
you can control the access and all the icons are being accessed at the same time.

if you can use the reader, add some directories and move chunks of files into
each of them

My current dilemma is that I accidently copy and pasted some files into the "Userdata" folder (which by default is just on my C: path) and now I'm unable to move them or even use them. Whenever I try to copy and paste the files out of the userdata folder, it gives me an error message saying "Access is Denied" and even if I do have administrator rights for my computer, it does not allow me to change the "read-only" attribute on the folder which I would hope would at least let me transfer the files out.

I'm using Windows XP SP 2 and these are audio/video files that I'm trying to transfer out of the Userdata folder.

Trying to 'drag and drop' or 'copy to' from my external drive to the 'my documents' partition of my main HD, when the files get big or numerous I get an error message saying that my destination drive doesn't have enough space.
It surely DOES have gigabytes to spare, so there's something wrong going on.

Also happens when trying to copy a file to my new SanDisk flash drive--a bogus message when the file is big--like a 15mb mpg.

In both cases I'm using USB2.0 for the transfer through a USB PCI card, but it hasn't happened when uploading lots of jpgs from my camera's card reader or when putting half a GB of mp3s on my Sansa using their USB ports on the same card.

Win2k, PIII/933, 256mb, Maxtor internal and external drives.

This driver story is a red herring. You need no special driver for a flash drive. The flash drive is probably corrupted. Try it on another PC to double check.

I have been using a new computer with Windows 8 for 3 or 4 days only. Until today things were ok.

Today, for some reason, every tiny movement of my fingers on the touch pad of my computer seems to open the windows store. I know the hot key combination to go back to my desktop but I can't have the store opening like this when I don't want it to. I have tried going to task manager and clicking on end task but it just opens right back up again a few seconds later. Can anyone help?

Hi translator82,

First off, I am not an apps guy so my suggestion probably won't be worth much; however, since I am not an apps person, I have "turned my live tile off" and I am never bothered by the store. Now, I do understand that this is probably not a permanent solution but it might be worth a try just to see if that stops the store from bugging you. Good luck.

What do you want Windows to do?" It gives me the option to retry or cancel. Retry does nothing.

Furthermore, when I look at the properties of the blank disc whether its a DVD-RW, CD-R, or DVD-R, it says that it has 0 free space. It can read my old cd's fine, play games, and music. But no matter how much free space is really left on the disc it says it has nothing left.

I've tried with Nero also, it also says theres no free room on the disc.
