BSOD on startup , error 0x000000f4 . startup takes half an hour

Q: BSOD on startup , error 0x000000f4 . startup takes half an hour

so everything was fine when my laptop started to become very slow and i used to get the BSOD very often so i decided to recover the system to the initial state . i did that and everything was fine , then i updated the windows 7 service pack 1 and finished the installation and rebooted my computer , the start-up at least took half an hour at that time and the service pack 1 installation showed "not successful " i tried to again to update the service pack1 which showed 73.6mb - 892.6mb so i updated it again and again the same thing happened.

then i researched and found out that there is some problem with the windows service pack 1 and some daemon tools driver sptd.sys is also involved or something so i uninstalled daemon tools as well as windows 7 service pack 1 from control panel .

now the system is back to its normal speed once it starts up fully , and unless i switch it off there is no problem , but when i restart the system it takes at least half an hour to start up sometimes more than that , sometimes it never starts and i see the BSOD after the welcome screen with error 0x000000f4 and the physical memory dump fails with error 0xc0000010 .

i had also found something about minidump files which i didnt understand anything about , but i still tried to find the folder but i couldnt find the minidump folder in c:/windows/ so i figured maybe i didnt have a minidump folder.

any help would be really appreciated , and if you decide to help please do so thinking that you are explaining it to a person who doesnt know much about computers .it would be easier to follow .

thanks



note : when i tried to run the minidump in sf diaog tool ,a dialog box popped up saying "no minidump found"

Have taken steps you recommend. Removed adware, spyware, and 4 trogens. Deleted some suspicious unsigned entries using Autoruns. Initially things were good, but after a couple of days, not so good. At boot this evening experienced these occurrences: anti virus was turned off, then on; Zone Alarm Pro was off, then on; received Runtime Error C:\PROGRA~1\PURENE~1\PORTMAN~1\PORT AOL.exe which noted "Abnormal Program Termination". The boot took over half an hour. Now that it's up, things seem normal. This is typical of the last several days. Would appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Hey all.

Let me split my post up in a few sections.

First of all what is the actual problem:
About 2 weeks ago, after running smoothly for over a year, my computer started behaving a bit strangely.
The only change I made to my system in the last days prior to that was a windows update, but suddenly my PC started to freeze up completely.

The individual freezes start off with windows becoming unresponsive, and eventually everything freezes up. Sometimes when I'm watching say a Youtube video, the video keeps playing while the Windows and other programs have already frozen up.
These freezes most of the time result in me either having to hard reset my PC (turn off the power completely, or trigger the reboot switch), or a BSOD.

What errors have I been getting:
The BSOD I talked about generally presents the following error:
STOP 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003; 0xFFFFFA8017574060; 0xFFFFFA8017574340; 0xFFFFF80002388D50)

Lately a few other errors have also shown up like:
0x0000007A (Kernal Data Inpage Error)
error with ntfs.sys

Apparently no physical dump of these error can be created (error 0xC0000010), so I'm also not sure if any of those BSOD errors are registered in the windows logs.

The weirdest thing is that these crashes occur EXACTLY every hour. I included a screenshot where you can see this.
Also this crash can be circumvented by putting my computer in the sleep mode. (The most workable way to use my PC right now is to put an alarm every 55 minutes and sleep my PC when... Read more

A:Computer locks up every hour, followed by BSOD error 0x000000F4

Welcome to SevenForums.

STOP 0x000000F4 & STOP 0x0000007A have one thing in common.

Code:
STOP 0x0000007A: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
Usual causes: Memory, Paging file corruption, File system, Hard drive, Cabling, Virus infection, Improperly seated cards, BIOS, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack
They're related to Hard drive/Storage.

I see that you have a SSD:

Code:
Model M4-CT128M4SSD2
Is the firmware up-to-date? Check for one.

Your BSOD-s seem to be caused by Asus Charger Driver and its Likely a BSOD cause

Hi guys - hope you can help.

Went to switch on my PC this morning, and my Dell monitor (which has been a little tempremental recently just had a flashing green power light).

As I do not have a back up monitor, I plugged into my sons 32"HDTV.

The PC booted up to the Hewlett Packard purple main screen (with bootup & BIOS options) and then hung there fior some time.. Eventually it came up with a Startup Repair screen but this did nothing.

Windows eventually (After half hour at least) booted up, but the performance was terrible.. Most programs wouldn't load and even browsing the HD took some time..

I tried a restart but again this took forever I am fairly computer savvy but this one has me stumped.

Here are my PC specs. The only problem I see here is the RAM - I actually have 2 x 2Gb in there

Hi,

Did you try doing system restore? If no and If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hello Beca,
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).

Hello! I have a recurring BSOD with my computer. Its been happening for several months.
Whenever I turn on my computer after its been turned off for a while, 10 minutes or so after startup it starts to slow down, and eventually crashes with a STOP screen.

Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2.zip
(a zip with both PERFMON results and the jcgriff thing inside)

After the stop screen, I reboot, and then usually the computer will run fine all day. Then the next day, same story: it runs for 10 minutes, slows down and crashes. Rinse, repeat. That cant be good for my machine in the long run, eh?

I dont need to log in to the computer for the crash to happen. It can happen at the start screen if I leave it on for too long without logging in.

The stop error code I get is 0x000000F4(0x0000000000000003,... and then three more parameters which change every time (one set of those three was 0xFFFFFA800C9AA060,0xFFFFFA800C9AA340,0xFFFFF800035D48B0) I am adding this here because I am not sure you will get the info in the attached file. I dont think my BSOD crashes generated crash dumps: I tried the program "whocrashed" before and the more recent crashes never seemed to show up on it. I have followed the directions in the sticky thread to fix this problem though, so hopefully next time I crash I will have a proper crash dump to show. Its odd though, the final lines of the blue screen text just says:

Initializing disk for crash dump..."

Hey everyone,

I'm getting BSOD every time I start up. My computer starts to lag, everything becomes choppy, and then it shows the BSOD (dump file below).

I was randomly surfing the net when the crash happened. A video didn't load, then the whole program stopped working (couldn't click tabs, etc), then before I knew it, BSOD!

The only recent thing I've installed is Google Drive. But that was yesterday (I think), I've restarted the computer multiple times since and used it extensively, so I don't see how that could play much of a role. Regardless, I can't remove it since I can't even get in safe mode...(the same thing happens. Can't get passed logon screen.)

I'm in Ubuntu now working off a live CD.

Thanks!!!

EDIT:

The bugcheck posted = 0xf4 (0x3,,,) = A process critical to the operation of Windows was suddenly & unexpectedly terminated.

Hardware can always be the underlying cause of almost any BSOD. It may be bad RAM, HDD, PSU, etc... that caused this.

However, it could very well be caused by a software update - be it Windows Update or an update to a driver or an installed program that now finds itself in the middle of a fight - usually for a memory address or mem add region that another driver claims for itself or that Windows has declared "off limits" for the protection of the OS. In other words - a 3rd party driver not playing by the rules of the Windows Kernel.

Give us a little time and we'll provide our analysis & conclusions.

Hi, I've been having some issues with my computer. Almost every day when I start up my computer, within a few minutes the screen will freeze for a few seconds, and the screen will go black, while the computer fan is still running (if I am playing music or having music playing from something, the music will freeze too). This frequently happens for a few more times (sometimes as much as 5 times) after I start the computer up again.

Sometimes, like today, the screen will keep going black and coming back on and a balloon notification will popup on the right saying "display driver has stopped responding and successfully recovered", many times until it finally BSODs.

The odd thing is that this usually only happens during the first hour when I start up my computer for the day. After multiple crashes and restarts it will stabilize and it won't occur again, until the next day when I do a cold bootup of my computer again (rarely it does happen later on though, when I'm playing my games). And I'm only usually running Firefox and just checking my Facebook when it happens.

I did do a bit of research on this problem, and I found that maybe it could be my Power Supply Unit which needs replacing. I never opened up a CPU before so I thought I would ask here first to confirm. I have the crash minidump file of my latest BSOD which I feel is related to the black screen problems I'm getting. Hopefully someone can point out the problem for me, thank you.

A:Frequent black screen / occasional BSOD during first hour of startup

Welcome to Seven Forums .

What you are experiencing is called a TDR (Timeout Detection & Recovery) and its not a real crash
in the sense that something wrong occurred in the Kernel.

Timeout Detection & Recovery (TDR) = "Display Driver Stopped Responding and was Recovered" is a useful feature that started in Vista and is also in W7 that allows the OS to try and recover from a video timeout so that the system does not crash to a bluescreen. Symptoms included a screen flash with the TDR message appearing one or more times or the screen blinking out to black. If the system cannot recover it will crash (Stop Error 116 typical). The issue is that the video card is not responding as expected.

There are numerous reports of hardware solutions to TDR's. The most common are:
Poor Cooling
Problems with the power supply
Overclocking Issues
Bad System memory or incorrect memory timings
Defective PC Components

Hi - I started getting a BSOD I think about three weeks ago. At first it was infrequent, but lately it has been happening on average around once an hour or so.

I have seen similar BSOD reports where (as you'll see in the attachment) no dump file is created.

So far I've tried updating the BIOS to the latest version, as well as a few troubleshooting scans (Lenovo hardware scan via BIOS, chkdsk /f, Windows Memory Diagnostic, Microsoft Security Essentials, etc). I haven't tried Memtest86+ or Carrona's HD Diagnostics yet.

I haven't found a pattern yet. I usually have Firefox open, but not necessarily. I got a BSOD in Safe More w/ Networking as well. I can't remember whether I installed/updated anything at the time it started occurring.

Would really appreciate any assistance you could provide. At my wits end here

As the title suggests, my Acer Aspire has been running startup repair for over 20 hours following a BSOD yesterday. I'm not sure if it's worth the wait so maybe you all can shed some light. Yesterday I was stressfully trying to search for something (using Chrome) and the website I was on froze; admittedly I slammed the heels of my hands down on the laptop at that point. The site unfroze after less than 30 seconds, I continued using my laptop without incident, then let it hibernate for about an hour. Started up fine after that, and at that point I was beginning to rip a DVD (one that I owned; I just wanted the files on my computer) using a program that I've used successfully in the past, but the rip failed. So I began using VLC instead, and hadn't actually started ripping any files when my laptop froze. I had been trying to point to a file path for saving but hadn't saved anything. The laptop was completely unresponsive after several minutes, so I hit the power key to restart, which is when I got the BSOD. It flashed too quickly for me to read or remember anything other than the word KERNEL. I've been wracking my brain trying to remember if it said kernel error or kernel memory error or what.

After the BSOD I had the option to start normally or in startup repair; I hit "start windows normally" but it went to repair anyway. It was on the grey screen with the cursor but I thought it had frozen again, so I did another hard restart. No BSOD this time, but again the opti... Read more

I built this machine about a year ago and its been a really stable work box up until really recently. Now it seems like every hour or so it gets 'stuck' freezes up and displays a BSOD.

The first couple times it happened it gave a 'KERNAL_DATD_INPAGE_ERROR" 0x0000007A

So I've scanned the disks looking for bad sectors, defragged, updated the intel drivers, rolled back with a system restore, and pulled the memory out, one by one, but I'm still getting these BSODs.; Now it seems to be consistently the F4 error.

I'm posting this quickly since I'm sure it'll freeze soon, please let me know if there is any additional info I could provide to make troubleshooting this any easier. I'd love to avoide completely reformatting and reinstalling, especially if that wouldn't even help.

I'm attempting to upload the zip of my mini dump now...

When I boot up my PC, Win 7 Home Premium 32bit, it always seems to give me a BSOD within the first 30mins. It's good as gold after the crash, but it is quite annoying. It's only started to happen within the last week. I've had Win7 installed a long time before that, but I recently reinstalled.

I uploaded the dump to Mediafire since I can't seem to here. Any help would be appreciated.

A:BSOD always half an hour after booting PC

Hi JimJam707, welcome to7F!

Your file refers to usbuhci "USB Universal Host Controller Interface".

Do you have any thing other than a USB Keyboard or Mouse attached to your machine when you start it? Try disconnecting it, and see if that helps.
If it does then the drivers for that device(s) will have to be upgraded.

If not then try the keyboard, and mouse one at a time to see if there is improvement, either one or both of those drivers may need updating.

It would also help to run a CheckDisk once, and SFC /scannow three times rebooting after each run.

Hi BSOD geeks.

My whole Windows 10 experience has been almost problem free since first Tech Preview October 2014, only had a few crashes which have had logical reasons behind them.

That being said today afternoon I had two times BSOD within half an hour for which I can not find any logical reason. Something common: both BSOD occurred when I was browsing forums with Edge on display 1 (laptop's internal display), using Hyper-V virtual machine to create a new deployment image (host and vm EN-GB PRO build 14971) on display 2 (connected with HDMI), and running Kodi to watch videos on display 3 (wireless Miracast display).

Restarting after first BSOD I opened the same programs, doing the same stuff, so background to both BSOD is identical.

Laptop, Asus X751LD instead of what's told in my system specs, quite low end. DM Log Collector file attached.

Thanks in advance

Kari

I have been getting a BSOD sometimes. Sometimes the computer goes blank. Sometimes the screen just freezes and makes a loud noise as if it was an issue with the graphics card. Pretty much all of these occurences have happened with about a half hour of starting up my computer. I have been able to let it run afterward and play games through the night if I can power through these first hiccups. I have updated everything I can but nothing helps. I have quit shutting down my computer completely and just putting it to sleep, but the BSOD finally hit me today after trying that trick. My BSODs have been extremely inconsistent and after maybe about 7-10 of them, not one has said the same thing. Most the time they haven't been able to make a dmp file, but I have 3 of them that I was able to grab.

I hope I posted to this forum correctly as I am fairly new at this and been able to fix all problems on my own in the past. Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

Problem:
Upon boot windows seems to start normally, but only until it loads my desktop picture, then it stops/slows and it can take up to an hour or more to complete the load and place all icons etc. on the deskop. During this process nothing else works; afterwards all seems fine. This started a month or so ago and at first it took just a few extra minutes to load. That has gotten progressively longer. I used to be able to launch task manager to break in and open a separate program, but that doesn't work anymore. F8-ing into safemode works fine and the load goes quickly as expected.

Virus scans do not detect anything abnormal.

One interesting note is that once the slow load puts the clock in the lower right corner of the task bar, the clock stops keeping time until things return to normal, then it shows the correct time.

The only major change I've made recently in my system that is timed close to the start of this problem was the installation of Bump Top.

Since my motherboard on my desktop is broken I finally got a new charger for my laptop (it's a Compaq.) My laptop works again, except it has two very annoying quirks about it that were less bothersome when it worked:

1. 75% of the time or so the computer will freeze right after windows loads. The mouse will work for a short while but nothing more will load or respond and then the computer just freezes and does nothing. Sometimes it freezes right before the start bar has loaded, othertimes the Mouse control and the video control will load in the task bar and that'll be it.


2. The rest of the time the computer will freeze about 50-58 minutes in. (I have Uptimer running and it shows when the computer freezes.) The computer will then unfreeze for half a second and freeze back up for about five seconds. This will continue until I get so frustrated that I restart the computer. Sometimes CPU usage spikes to 100% before dropping down and staying frozen. Other times it stays next to dead zero but keeps doing the freeze/unfreeze. When it does spike I have no idea what is using the CPU. One time it spiked and I had process manager open and it showed nothing (and it was frozen so I couldn't scroll down), another time the task manager showed that it was using 100% of CPU before dropping to nothing. Also, the mouse doesn't freeze up like the rest of the computer and stays active despite the five second freezes.

Consistent BSOD during Windows startup for both normal mode and safe mode. BSOD problem started shortly after buggy installations of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 x64, Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1, and AMD Catalyst Drivers 13.9; and turning off Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1.

Startup Repair is consistently unable to fix: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800033bf6d6, 0xfffff880009a7578, 0xfffff880009a6dd0).

I accessed the dump file of the BSOD-inflicted drive by usb-connecting it to the same pc, but that's now running a functioning, system hard-drive.

BlueScreenView shows these following files to be problematic:
atikmpag.sys
dxgkrnl.sys
dxgmms1.sys

The hash of the atikmpag.sys from the BSOD-inflicted drive is identical to the one in the functioning drive, so I don't think this is the root problem.
However, the hashes of the two dx files (dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys) are different. I have replacement files for the broken dx files, but I don't have, nor know how to get, the access permission to replace them.

I'm at a loss for what I can try at this point. I used DM Log Collector and uploaded the resulting file. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Hi guys I was cleaning my laptop turned it on and it just wouldn't work so I turned it off and on again and it was giving me this error code saying my keyboard is not detected in start up. It then says there was a problem and shoots me to startup repair where it's just stuck not doing anything. My mouse and keyboard don't work, but I have a wireless mouse that I can use I can't access safe mode either because my keyboard doesn't work and I don't know if I can get a keyboard hooked up since my computer might not be able to recognize it. Sorry for the badly worded paragraph it's really late and I need to go to sleep. How can I solve this problem. Also startup time is really long ( usually 20 seconds) is now 5 min an doesn't even start up some times and I have no recovery disks or anything like that so im really confused what to do
Edit: A quick update, I started my computer in the morning and was not getting error 01010003, and my computer started perfectly fine however my keyboard still isn't working. I think it might be a driver problem, but I can't access Safe Mode... because my keyboard doesn't work. Is the only way of getting the key board to work getting a new keyboard and using that to diagnose the problem through safe mode or?

In this situation, you have to use another keyboard in order to test. I wish you will be luckier than me .... for me it turned out to be a motherboard failure My computer was working normally .... but no USB/PS2 ports were working.

My laptop hasn't been in use for about a few weeks and all of a sudden, I am getting a Windows Error Recovery on Startup. I am given two options: Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and Start Windows Normally. Nothing happens when I try to restart Windows normally -- I only see a black screen. Upon selecting System Recovery, a teal screen pops up with "System Recovery Options" telling me to select a keyboard layout. Then it tells me to select my OS, but it comes up blank, telling me to load drivers for my hard disks. I stopped right there.

I am a little hesitant about using the System Recovery in fear of losing important files. If this is a possibility, I may try to backup my files using an alternate OS, like Ubuntu. Or are my files already long gone? Is this just a restore for important Windows files or a complete restore of Windows back to factory settings?

I have not installed any new software or devices. Running Windows Vista x64.

Essentially the computer will BSOD either during startup, or after a few minutes of using the computer. If it doesn't BSOD within a few minutes, the computer will run just fine until you turn it off.
I personally haven't seen the BSOD yet and have been working on the computer over the last couple of days.
I tried looking through the event viewer and it looks like it was x7f error when the computer was crashing.

I have a mediocre laptop by today's gaming standards. Dual Core 2ghz processor and a mobile intel graphics card. Not near enough to play intensive modern games, especially without anything higher than Shader Model 2.0. So I am usually not surprised when a game doesn't work at all or if it's laggy. However, this laptop used to be pretty okay. It could play Aion at medium graphics when it was first released a couple years ago.

Yet, for some odd reason half the games I try to play crash on startup. I mean they don't even get to any menu. Some of them open a black box, then suddenly crash. Others don't show anything before they crash. It's not that I don't meet the minimum requirements, because I do for most of those games. Fallout 3 and Final Fantasy XIV both crashed on startup, but it's possible I don't meet their requirements.

The verification of a knownDLL failed. system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc000012f (0x00360bf0 0x00000000).
The system has shut down.

Upon Reboot, I am advised to go to the startup repair. I select my language, but then it asks me to select an operating system, and Windows 7 is not there. If I run DISKPART it does not detect my hard drives, yet they show up fine in the BIOS and in the Intel RST RAID configuration screen. (2x 240 GB SSD RAID 0) I also have a 2TB HHD that windows cant seem to detect but is showing up everywhere else.

The HHD's purpose was to be the back-up for the Raid array....too bad i never actually backed anything up! Boy do I regret that now.

This build has been running fine for a few months until now. It was last working about a week ago and it downloaded an update for windows. I posponed the restart for 30 minutes or so to finish up a game I was playing and then shut it down for the night. When I turned it on the next morning, this happened.

I have Updated the BIOS to the most current version, as well as the SSD firmware. No change whatsoever.

I am pretty desperate here trying to avoid formatting BY ALL MEANS POSSIBLE. So, any advice is welcome!

Hi,


Code:

Stop message 0xC000021A Descriptive text: FATAL_SYSTEM_ERROR
Usual cause: The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly.
If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the BSOD error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:
1. Reboot the computer.
2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
3. When successful, you should see a black screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

Advanced Boot Options

If you have the Windows 7 installation cd, insert that in computer and boot up with it:
1. Go into the Windows Recovery Environment by selecting the option to repair your Windows at startup.
2. After it has completed the startup repair, click link that says "View Advanced Options for system recovery and support".

The problem comes in when I attempt to start my laptop so that I can begin the backup process, the screen flickers a BSOD, says startup failed and do I want to run Startup Recovery. If I say no, it continues to attempt a restart (each time going thru the same steps) until I say yes to Startup Recovery when it goes through all the motions but always fails to repair the startup. I discovered that if I hit Cancel at the end, it gives me the chance to use System Restore which works in that I do get into my laptop, but doesn't in that the whole startup routine happens all over again the next go round and the only way I get in is via System Restore. I am going to post this next part here on the off chance that the problems are related. The backup onto an external drive has been failing because Windows didn't assign it a drive letter.

I have an odd problem with my laptop, one that I've never seen before. For the past several months my computer has been getting a BSOD more and more often. It has been getting worse over the past month. I've been trying to find more information online but I haven't seen a specific solution. Here's what has been going on. Early on in the problem, it would crash occasionally (maybe once every 2 days). Now I get a BSOD about 5 to 10 minutes after I start up, but the weird thing is that after I get the BSOD (which happens every time), then my computer starts up and runs without getting a BSOD. It will run with no problems as long as I don't shut down or restart my computer; if I shut it down or restart then I will get another BSOD after startup. Lately it's been getting so bad that most of the time it won't be able to boot up. It gets to the "starting windows" screen, sits there for about 5-10 minutes, then has to run the startup repair. This doesn't work. If it takes a long time at the starting windows screen, I usually just power it down and try again until it finally boots up, so I can allow it to BSOD and then run normally. I have written down the BSOD errors and will list them below (the top 3 are the ones I see most often):

These are problems that have plagued my computer for a few weeks now. I have tried many methods of getting rid of these problems, but none to any avail.

The two problems are as follows.

1. At startup, after logging in, the login screen lags for about 10-30 seconds, with a windows xp error sound. Then, a dialog box telling me that RUNDLL has encountered an error appears. It says that C:\Windows\system32\r57aw1.dll can not be found. This is an obscure dll, obviously made by a previous malware that I had killed off my computer. This is very annoying, my computer used to log in in less than a second, now it takes up to half a minute.

2. Every hour on the hour, two RUNDLL error messages popup simultaneously (probably again due to previous infections). One tells me that C:\WINDOWS\Downlo~1\26bb.dll cannot be found, the other tells me that C:\WINDOWS\Downlo~1\22bac.dll cannot be found. AVG has been constantly finding and deleting trojans discovered either in the system32 or downloaded internet files folders.

As of recently, my computer has been taking a really long time to bootup completely (about an hour). After it is done, it runs at a fine pace, but I need to really decrease the startup speed. I have run spyware programs (SpyBot S&D, AdAware), antivirus programs (Symantec Antivirus), and Windows Optimizers (CCleaner, Ashampoo WinOptimizer, RegScrubXP, SpeedUpMyPC), and have even gone into msconfig and manually removed programs from the startup list. Regardless, my computer still takes ages to boot and still opens up tons of processes.I opened up the Windows Task Manager while it was booting and noticed that CMD.exe spiked the CPU all the way up to 100%. Also, iexplore.exe had 4 different processes open. In addition, whenever I startup my computer, a windows explorer window opens with the path: C:\Program Files\Common.

A:Startup Takes Ages

Hi dadrivr,Sorry for the delay, things are very busy here right now.To clarify one point, many of the programs that start up with Windows are not listed in the Startup section of MSConfig. On my computer, I have 13 programs listed under Startup, but Task Manager shows 34 processes running. So the discrepancy you have is not abnormal. You do have an awful lot of programs running, but even a computer as loaded with software as yours is should not take an hour to boot. Frankly, I am not sure whether malware is at the root of your problem or not. Your log has a couple of lines that may indicate an infection, but I am not even sure of that. We will need to find out whether your computer is infected and if so, remove the infection.This may or may not cure your bootup problem. If it does not, then once your machine is clean, I will turn you over to the people on the Windows XP forum. Some of them have a lot more experience than I do in troubleshooting operating system difficulties.You need to understand going in is that most malware fixes involve one or more reboots of the computer. I know that you are concerned about shutting down your machine, and I'll go as far as I can before I ask you to reboot, but it may be necessary at some point.The first thing we have to do is look at the lines In your log. They are:F2 - REG:system.ini: UserInit=userinit,nddeagnt.exe,regsrv32.exe /sO4 - Global Startup: Register.exeThe questionable files are regsrv32.exe and Register.exe. Neit... Read more

Hi all!

When I switch on my computer it goes to a notice saying ... 'Windows is starting up... " Nothing will happen for a full 15 minutes or so, before it then goes to a split screen with two options. I click the option 'Owner' - and then it goes to desktop.

How can I fix this long delay in the startup process? I've never had this happen before.

Thanks for any help.

A:Startup Takes 15 Minutes...

First question, did you install any programs when the boot problem started, and what programs are running at start up. Have you tried using a restore point from before the boot problem.
Next I would do the usual spyware / malware and virus scans, plus make sure windows is updated. Also check device manager, and event viewer this is very helpful in tracking down problems.

i don't know why but the last couple of days when i turn on my computer, it spends a lot longer on the welcome screen and loading the desktop. it usually takes less than a minute to startup like most fast computers do. i use a pentium 4. anyway, i couldn't find a reason why this is happening. i also hear a strange sound from the computer too- i think from the hardisk or hardrive. it stops after the desktop is loaded. i ran all my virus scan and ad-aware and did an error-checking and disk defragmenter. i haven't installed any new programs that would cause this so i don't know. it's just annoying to have to wait so long when it should take only a minute.

A:startup takes forever

if you havn't already done this then go to start then run and type msconfig
then go to Startup, untick everything you dont need (which is most of them)
restart your pc and you should see a difference

It Takes Too Much Time To Startup Now.
I Looked At Event Viewer and Found This Error.

The Windows Time service was successfully sent a stop control.

The reason specified was: 0x40030011 [Operating System: Network Connectivity (Planned)]

Comment: None


Tried Disabling TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service - Didnt Help
Changed Windows Time Service To Automatic - Didnt Help

What Should I Do?

Fixed The Problem. It was "nvstreamsvc.exe" or "Shares Windows Media Player libraries to other networked players and media devices using Universal Plug and Play"
And Its a Service Hang

Could be a failing power supply or it could be the motherboard. If you have access to another power supply its easier to test.

Hello.

Ok, this problem started out of the blue one day I turn on my laptop and everything is fine ... but once it gets to the "boot screen" (The one that has the windows logo and the loading bar) the thing turns slow and it stays on that screen for at least 5 minutes, after that, the whole windows startup takes another 5 minutes... to finally end up with a slow working computer. It's slow but it still works alright but once I try to open WMP or Itunes to listen to music or even watch videos from YouTube, the whole CPU Usage goes to 100% and the song starts skipping and "lagging" and the computer works slower than usual.

Mmm .. I have a Dell B130, Windows XP Service Pack 2 Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz, 1GB RAM.
Mmm I'm posting my Hijackthis log to see if that could help, and thanks in advance to anyone who wishes to help.

Hi Guys,
Lately, every time I turn my computer on, it truly takes 15-20 min to start before I can work on it! Do you have an idea on what can cause that?
Thanks in advance,
Yannik

A:Need Help, my computer takes 20 min to startup!

Hello Yankie007,

Did you add any new Hardware or Software recently?

Have you ran Virus and Malwares scans?

Which Antivirus and Firewall programs do you have installed?

Have you tried performing a Clean Boot?

Have you ran Windows Disk Cleanup Tool, lately?

Have a one month old Dell 610 (laptop). Worked great at first, but is getting progressively bad - now almost unusable -- 30 seconds for IE to come up.

This is with "blank" as home page.
Went into msconfig and turned off all non microsoft services, and almost all other startup programs.

cpu usage is 2-3%
Memory usage is about 250M out of 1G
Fully patched XP

BTW - iexplore.exe appears in task manager virtually instantaneously - but the GUI takes 30 seconds. - no cpu usage the entire time

Avant and Mozilla browsers come up fine.
hijack analyzer are attached.

You guys seem to be able to figure this stuff out and I would REALLY appreciate any help.

Dell support says to wipe the disk and reinstall the OS.
