Vista Improper Shutdown Notice, after good normal shutdown

Q: Vista Improper Shutdown Notice, after good normal shutdown

Hello all!

I seem to be having an annoying error alert for an error that, as far as I can tell, never occurred.

When I shutdown my computer (through start -> shutdown....as I always have), it shows the vista shutdown screen then the computer powers off, like it always has.
But, when I power back up and log in, I get an alert stating the following:

Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6001.
Locale ID: 4105

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 1000007e
BCP1: C0000005
BCP2: 8D728267
BCP3: 803CCC04
BCP4: 803CC900
OS Version: 6_0_6001
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1Click to expand...

This problem began to occur this past week, and I think is a result of 6 windows vista updates installed on Sept.10. Four updates were listed important (two recommended were for my Windows Mail software and a general update to resolve application compatibility issues - KB954366) and are logged as being successfully installed in my update log.

I don't really want to have to uninstall windows updates, unless absolutely necessary.

Is there any other likely reason for this notification to pop up on startup after a completely normal shutdown?

Thanks in advance for any help.


Here are my system specs:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+
RAM: 3GB Comstar DDR II 667/533
HDD: Western Digital 250GB
DVD: LG 20x Super Multi Security DVD Rewriter with LightScribe
Graphics: NVidia GeForce 8800GTX
Monitor: 22" Samsung SyncMaster 226BW (Digi)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP1

Preferred Solution: Vista Improper Shutdown Notice, after good normal shutdown

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Every time I boot up my computer it gives me that message saying that Windows was improperly shutdown and asks if I want to boot it up normally or go to safe mode, etc. But I'm shutting it down properly every time... I'm giving it plenty of time to power off it's not like I'm turning it off halfway through. I don't understand why it would be doing this? It isn't a huge problem half the time it just defaults to booting windows normally if I don't choose an option after a certain amount of time (most of the time I just boot the computer up and walk away) but still it's annoying sometimes and I would like to know why it happens.

Vista Premium 32-bit
HP Pavilion dv6000
Intel [email protected] Ghz, 3GB RAM

My computer's not booting correctly. It gets stuck at the welcome screen. I recently had an improper shutdown (battery died), thereafter it would boot up but instead of going to the desktop it would go to a black screen, where I could move the cursor and could use ctrl+alt+del and use task manager, etc. Now I've tinkered with it. And it gets stuck on the welcome screen, where it doesn't respond to anything. Besides pulling the battery out. It does boot in safe mode.

By tinkering I mean I've created another user. I've used 'msconfig' and disabled all the start up programs. Still didn't work, so I went and disabled all the start up programs and then hid the microsoft services and disabled all the services. I've also been to the repair menu and performed all the tasks besides restoring to the original factory conditions, which is probably what I'll end up doing. I've tried to restore to previous successful boots and it acts as if it is booting correctly, and previous boots don't work either. I haven't done anything recently to the comp, besides change the registry to bring back a disappeared sound icon. I think my problem is just due to the improper shutdown. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

My 13 y/o cousin did something to Grandma's computer and now it doesn't work right. I only got to look at it briefly, but it seems slow and one of the parental control programs stopped working properly and had to be removed as it was blocking internet access.
According to my cousin, he turned the computer on one morning and it wouldn't start properly and went to an error screen. At some point he restarted it with the power button at least once. In the event log, I saw where it was shutdown improperly, but there was only one reference to it. There were other errors that only started showing up after this incident. I don't remember what they are, I'll have to go back over one day and write them down. I remember that the errors referred to ATAPI and the Shadow Volume Copy, and maybe the Kernel.
Is there a program that could do a system analysis to determine what and where the problems are? I don't want to simply reformat the computer as that's above my skill level. Grandma misplaced the backup discs so I don't even know how to go about reinstalling the OS. She doesn't want to upgrade to Windows 8 or 10 right now either.
Any suggestions?

If it matters, this happened about three weeks ago. The computer has been left on the entire time since then. I was waiting for school to start before looking into it any further. My cousin lives there and annoys the heck out of me when I visit.

hey i know ive posted this before in another topic but that was started by someone else.

my condition right now is the comp restarts automatically i select anything on the win xp improper shutdown screen. i can shoose normal, last good or safe and get the same result. i have format and installed windows twice, but it just comes back. the first time i installed drivers/ windows update, the second time i just let windows install the drivers.

i was frustrated after the second time and took it to the repair shop. they thought they fixed it the same way i did, but then when they tested it to me the exact same thing happened. the guy there was totally stumped. anyone have any idea what could have happened? i think this may be a hardware problem. since 3 reinstalls, one done by a "professional" and the same problem occurs. or could this be a virus?

It's not what you think based on the title.

(Running Windows 7 Home Premium)

I was in the middle of doing a full format of a new 1TB HDD using a SATA to USB adapter, when I stupidly hit he sleep button half way through.

I have tried everything to get the HDD to format since then and I just get errors.
I tried Wiping the drive with Active Kill Disk, but it just hangs up in the middle.
I re-initialized the drive. No change.
Used disk manager, didn't work.
I haven't been able to find a solution thru Google.

I don't know if this is meaningful info, but out of desperation, I tried cloning the drive which usually overwrites anything. The cloning software told me it could not start the clone since the "block sizes are different". The source HDD is 953,870MB and the messed up destination HDD is 953,877MB (7MB more). I checked every 1TB HDD I have, and they are all 953,870MB.

So that's the background. I have 2 questions:

1) Did I damage the HDD?

2) If not, is there something I haven't tried to get it operating properly?

Thanks very much. (sorry for the long post)

Vista64 SP2 on my desktop, I want to put it to sleep every night for a quick resume in the morning. I would've used hibernate like on my XP laptop but Vista doesn't have one in the shutdown options.

Anyway, on my vista desktop, when I wake it up via keyboard mashing, it comes back with the black BIOS screen that says it was improperly shutdown and if I want to boot up in safe mode or start windows normally. I start it normally and after regular bootup screens, after windows loads, it shows me solutions and a cause was a blue screen. I saw no such thing when it was going to sleep.

Why is this happening? My XP laptop is sleeping (it calls it standby with a moon icon) without issue - I hit the function key and it wakes up immediately back to a useable screen. Hibernate also works on the laptop though bootup takes longer of course.

Hi All..

Last night in a rush to go out I shut down my computer by holding down the power button, instead of waiting for windows to close the open programs and shut down properly.

When I got back, I turned the computer on, and the boot process was severely messed up. After the animated black Windows XP screen, it goes black for a few minutes, then the blue screen that says 'windows is starting up' (or something similar) appears, but stays for another 5 or so minutes. Then, the 'Welcome' blue screen comes up but stays for even longer. When Windows finally loads, the wallpaper loads, then the desktop icons (note programs' correct icons don't show, only window default 'exe' icon), then the taskbar, but the task bar remains white and only has the start button, quick launch and clock - no other icons show.

It stays like this indefinitely, with the CPU light flashing and the computer seemingly loading. I left it on all night and it got no forther.

When in that state, anything I click on (including ctrl-alt-del) takes about 5+ minutes to do.

I tried safe mode - it took so long to load I gave up.

I tried ERD Commander - not even that would load past a blank screen with a cursor.

I tried booting from the Windows CD - the reinstall option isn't there and it doesn't spot the previous installation.

I am using Windows XP Home SP2 - Can ANYONE help? Is there a solution or do I have to format and reinstall?? Eek.

Hi, I really wouldnt worry about it too much. it sounds like the psu just cuts off power, but theres just a second or two where there is still a little power left in it. As long as evrything else seems normal then dont worry about it, but if it really concerns you then just send it back to tigerdirect, there very understanding with returns. -Nick

So here is one that I could use some help with. I am running Windows 64 bit RC 7100 Ultimate on a Asus PL5. I downloaded EnhanceMySe7en, started it, but did not run any functions. I shut down the computer for the night and the next day when I tried to boot the machine, it started to do a disk check and repair. I left it to run, but when I came back to it could still not reboot. Eventually I managed to get the computer to reboot after using the repair disk. However after restarting Windows, when I click on the start button and go to "All Programs" it is blank.

Is there a way to restore the programs list?

I don't know what other information I need to supply that will help to understand this crash.


A:System crash after normal shutdown

Looks like EnhanceMySeven did something to it...I have known others with a similiar issue after using the program. Either try a System Restore or a repair install if you turned that off

I just bought this HP Spectre 360 with a 256 GB SSD. After every shut down, which is done properly, I get a Critical Error 41 (63) in Event Viewer, as if the system crashed or lost power suddenly. What could be causing this. Everything seems to be running fine, but this critical error concerns me.

Found my T3500 had shut down. On start-up, got thermal shutdown warning. Once I logged into Windows 7, fan started running at max RPMs and soon shut itself down again.
Opened the case, cleaned the fan grates (there was a moderate amount of lint).
Left the case open, started up again, fan at max, but CPU temp app indicates normal (under 50C) temps. Does not shutdown, but did lock up eventually.
Started up again with fan disconnected. CPU temps normal, but locked up fairly quickly.
Seems like it's whatever is controlling the fans, not actual overheating. OTOH, still locking up with fans disconnected. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I am trying to find the location(s) of the `Turn Off', `Restart', `Stand By', and `Hibernate' icons (as shown on the `Turn Off Computer' dialog), the `Switch User' and `Log Off' icons (as shown on the `Log Off' dialog), and the `Turn Off Computer' and `Log Off' icons (as shown on the Start menu).

I've already checked the shell32.dll file and have performed a thorough search of all files and folders on my computer for files with the `.ico' extension (including hidden files and folders) - all without success.

Anybody have a clue?

Lately, I'm having trouble with XP sleep mode, whereas normal shutdown occurs without any noticeable problems (except for the known but infrequent issue with the system freezing up during shutdown for no apparent reason).

What happens with Sleep Mode?

Usually, it goes into that mode without apparent problem (except for the occasional freezing up mentioned above). However, after waking up the system, and working for some time without any trouble, suddenly the screen goes blank, then the ill-famed "Blue Screen of Death" (BSD) flashes on, then the system reboots.

When everything has started up again, one gets the infamous Microsoft message, asking to mail a report - the complying to which has never seemed to have any effect whatsoever over the years, but that is beside the point. Needless to say that all help - built-in or otherwise - from Microsoft is of no help whatsoever either.

Searching for possible problems in the log books, there is one that, in my case, is recurring, whatever the manner of shutting down the system has been, and is a DCOM event # 10016. This does not seem to have any effect on the system, even though I cannot get rid of that blasted event, whatever I may do. Indeed, the CSLID it is referring to (for the record: {A4199E55-EBB9-49E5-AF1A-7A5408B2E206}) cannot be found anywhere under DCOm Config - so a repair is impossible, even if this would help (by the way, before one can even begin to understand the Microsoft instructions concerni...

A:Problems XP Sleep Mode vs. Normal Shutdown, and related error events

Hello again!

After a thorough search - heavens, how convoluted can Microsoft get ? - I stumbled upon a MS article advertising a hotfix for exactly the problem encountered with the 1003 Cat 102 event (article 925922).

However, when receiving that hotfix, which is apparently quite new, MS says that it has not been thoroughly tested. What am I to do? Wait until they come up with yet another service pack (an unlikely event!) or just try my luck after all necessary precautions? In other words, has anyone had any previous experience with this?

Best regards,

OK here is the scenario:

Department director says he can't get online and his computer reboots after 60 seconds. He brings his machine into the office and low and behold boom RPC error sys will reboot after 60 seconds. (Which by the way was easily remedied by updating the RPC service to take no actions when it fails) I'm think OK blaster virus or something close to it. I download all the removal tools on another machine and transfer them over to the infected machine and no luck, they don't find anything. I have downloaded several trojan removal tools all revealing the same result, no virus. Im at a loss here and stuck. I have searched about 5 different tech boards and they all seem to have the same answers but none of the have worked.

doesnt really matter.
The spinning down/up of the disk does wear it out, but considering it can do that hundred thousand times (approx) in the systems lifetime it doesnt really matter.

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong Forum Category. Please guide me to the right one.
I have a Raid 1 on two disks on my machine.

If I shut down the system or restart everything runs smoothly. All disks (in Disk Management) are listed as healthy.

However, if I run the normal shut down process, and wait until the computer completely shuts down, and then unplug the computer from the wall socket, the disks have to resync the next time the computer is booted up again.

I don't understand why this is happening, since the change (of unplugging the computer from the wall) happened while it is turned off.

Any help in finding a solution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


A:RAID 1 Hard Drives resync after normal shutdown and unplug from wall socket

Hello Simon,
Do you mean that after completely shut down and unplug the power?
If you don?t unplug, does this issue exists?
If yes, it may be caused by the hardware issue, please contact the manufacturer to check.

Please make sure you have completely shut down the computer before the unplug. There are no fans running or LED light.
