Preferred Solution: msn not responding, tried multiple fixes, no luck

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.)

I just now installed the KDE Cygwin (kde-cygwin)for Windows on my Win XP SP2 machine. However, upon restart I am now receiving the message "NTLDR Missing".

I have tried following the instruction found on numerous forums and at computerhope.com but I continue to receive the same message every restart.

This is what I have done so far:
Restarted with the Win XP CD-ROM and went to the Recovery Console.
Logged into my C:\ drive using the admin password.
Copied "F:\i386\NTLDR" and "F:\i386\NTDETECT.com" to the root of my C drive.
Ran "bootcfg /rebuild" and then "fixboot".

After doing all of the above I restarted and am still met with the "NTLDR Missing" message.

Again I booted back into the Recovery Console and checked to see what had been written into the boot.ini file using "bootcfg /list" and this is what I got:
----------------------------------
[1] ""
OS Load Options:
OS Location: C:\WINDOWS
----------------------------------

Does this look right??

I tried typing the "fixmbr" command in and was met with the message, "This computer appears to have a non-standard or invalid master boot record." which was followed the threat that if I continued then I might lose all of the data on my drive, which is not an option for me.

I am trying to avoid the need run a "repair installation" from the Win XP boot CD. That would require a lot of PITA work to update Windows back to... Read more

A:Unable to connect to internet - Many fixes tried but still no luck :-(

does it affect all browsers or just internet explorer?
It would help to install either chrome or firefox on the same system to see if either of them work properly.
...just in the interest of making sure the browser is the problem.
Mozilla Firefox Web Browser
Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux

Multiple BSODs over the last year, sometimes while logging in, sometimes after 15 minutes of running. Have tried SFC/SCANNOW, memory test, CHKDSK, all with no reported errors. Did a system restore to Windows 8 a while back and kept getting BSODs. Could it be a hard drive problem, or a simple drive upgrade? Im currently working on trying to update all my drivers to see if that will fix it. All help is appreciated.

Hi,

I have been doing a ton of research and a bunch of random stuff to try and fix my PC.

2 days ago, I was just doing a fantasy draft, computer froze completely, then I couldn't start it up for like 5-6 tries. The power came on, but the monitor wasn't. Finally, windows started and I kept getting Blue screen, Kernel Data Inpage Error. Not sure if it was f4 or 7a at the beginning.

I decided to reformat my Windows, but I kept getting a BSOD when it was overloading, either by trying to update games, or other software, or trying to run a game. But this didn't fix it either.

I ran a MEMTEST86 for both slots of 4gb ram, and passed.

Also ran CHKDSK, and SEATOOLS for DOS and passed both Long/Short Tests.

Greetings

My first time registering at this forum but I have consulted here a number of times w/ issues and have usually found ideal help. I may be out of luck this time though.

I'm running XP (sp3)- P4 and 1Gb Ram(old) and have been using NOD32 AV, Spybot, and then also have Super Antispyware (free) installed and also Malwarebytes. In December/January I had a "minor" infection w/ the "google" or "yahoo" virus which I believe I was able to remove (malware bytes on a flash drive). After then in January I had another minor infection w/ tdss (recollection on name) which I thought I removed. After this, it seemed my Spybot was less effective than in the past (hind sight now). It now seems as if it blocked my spybot entirely?

Yesterday I got hit with a major virus/trojan infection from multiple fronts. I have been using Malware Bytes and Super Antivirus to scan and try and remove these pests. I'm at my work computer right now so I'm going off recollection. Two or 3 of the infections were in the memory stores (according to SAV software) and then 64 infections in the registery and then several more in "files." I am able to scan for the infections but then am unable to reboot to remove/quarentine them. One of them hijacked my desktop and placed a notice in my system tray saying my computer was infected. I love their humor despite wanting to punch them!

I recently reinstalled XP Pro w/ SP3 and I ran into errors. I put out another post on here but I feel like I bogged it down with too many issues at once and it wasn't really fitting of my problem anymore. Anyways, my main concern right now is that I am stuck in an unfortunate loop. I cannot boot the computer normally. Doing so results in a blue error screen shortly after start up. I can however run the computer in safe mode no problem... BUT running in safe mode disables Microsoft Installer Service which I need in order to download several drivers and fixes I have found. What I need to figure out is how to bypass the blue screen error in order to run windows normally so that I can then fix the blue screen error. My computer has turned itself into a Doctor Who episode and I lost the damn screwdriver. Someone please help.

Now, I am getting another error code, and it happens quite often. this is literally the sixth time I've reinstalled windows since last week, and I'm starting to think that hardware somewhere on my system has gone wrong

It's probably good to note that my computer went without a hitch before - then one day I installed a second hard drive. Whilst formatting the second drive, I lost power to my system and somehow had also corrupted my primary drive (with windows installed)

After that problem, after problem. However, maybe this is just timed badly, I'm not sure, so all suggestions, (except formatting harddrive) are welcome

Hi


For many months I've been trying to install Java's latest update. been attempting it for so long I think Java has updated twice during this time. Sometimes it worked for a few weeks or a month then I'd get a message telling me I need to update my version. So off I go....back to Java - ran the test - sure enough it would say I needed to update or I had no Java at all. Right now the latest version is jre1.7.0_09-windowsi586.exe. I got it directly from the JAVA site.


I've tried many fixes. From my OS troubleshooter to the MS Fixit tool at the fixit center and other tools in between. All of them say they have fixed the problem. I've spent hours reading about Java issues, fixes, etc at various sites discussing why - this happens. Its conflicting views.

I do recall installing different versions of Java in the past because the site advised me to for reasons I can't remember now..... I think it was the JRE 2 - that had a browser plugin which had a fix for a later version of Java.

In the last several months I periodically - dl and installed the latest version but each time I tested it - it would say it was NOT installed so I'd do it again after checking BOTH the destination folder (empty) and the control panel to see if it was in there and it wasn't so I tried again with same result.

Hello pippin and welcome to Seven Forums.

Give JavaRa a try. It has always been an effective tool to remove all remnants of Java.

JavaRa | SingularLabs

After using JavaRa, run a system file checker scan. This will check for any damaged or corrupt system files that might be preventing a clean install of the latest version of Java. Run the scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi, I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. I have tried numerous fixes to get it to stay connected but it just doesn't seem to work.
I have done all the well documented fixes including registry edits, changing the power management settings on my network device and it just doesn't seem to help. The longest I have managed to stay online in one session is about 45 minutes, but more often than not, it doesn't stay connected longer than 15.

Once the connection is lost, the network cannot connect, or even be found on occasion. This forces me to restart the computer to re-establish the connection.

Does anyone have any ideas, as it's getting to the point where I am tempted to just bin the thing and get a new computer with a version of windows 10 that is not upgraded from an old OS.

I have built a new computer and am having the following problem:

One certain occasions, the computer will power on shortly after being turned off. This will usually happen within 1 to 3 minutes after being turned off. If it doesn't happen within 5 minutes, it will stay off.

My system specs are:

ASUS p5ad2-p mobo
p4 550
1 gig Corsair XMS ddr2-5400
2 Maxtor HDs (non-raid)
SB Audigy 2 ZS
Enermax 550w 24-pin PSU
Radeon x800 pro

Everything in the system is less than a month old.

Here is what I have done to try and solve the problem (based on advice from this and other forums):

1. replaced the PSU (original was an Ultra-X 500w)
2. reformatted and reinstalled Windows
3. disabled all hibernation options in Windows
4. disabled all wake-on options in the bios
5. flashed bios to most current version
6. inspected the mobo (to the best of my relatively limited abilities) for bulging or leaking capacitors (there may be other evidence of a short in the mobo that I wouldn't recognize)

I am truly stumped as to what could be causing the problem. Is it possible that line-noise is the culprit? I have plugged the surge protector into different outlets on the same circuit, and have the same result. Haven't tried plugging it into a different circuit.

Before I RMA the mobo, I want to make sure there's not some other possible cause that I am overlooking.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Greetings,

I've got a doozy of a Toshiba here. Originally, it had the beginnings of a failed hard drive, so we cloned it over. After that, we ran BleachBit, AdwCleaner, and JRT as a basic cleanup, not finding anything significant. HitmanPro also found nothing of note. Finishing up, we started to run Windows update to find the error message "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart the computer." Of course, restarting didn't help

Here's a list of things we've tried to get this thing fixed:

Fixit 50123
Restarting wuauserv, bits
Windows Update Readiness tool
Windows Repair All-In-One - ran the full gamut of fixes
Fixit to "Automatically diagnose and fix common problems with Windows Update"
CHKDSK /f - made corrections, nothing major.
SFC /scannow - found errors, unable to correct them

Usually, we perform a repair install after this to more definitively reset components. However, with this machine, it gets about halfway through the Expanding files section to get the error message that it "cannot configure Windows to run on this hardware".

I tried going into %systemroot%\Panther to find the setuperr.log, but the file doesn't exist. Maybe that file is only created for vanilla installations, not upgrades.

I'm starting to run out of options here. The machine isn't having infection issues, updates won't run, and I can't repair the system.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,

As suggested from the title I've been battling with this error for a while now.
I am not sure when it started but this Windows 10 installation was a clean one directly from an .iso file from Microsoft meaning no tampering was done with it.
It is a legit activation from the start, so no tampering there either.
My Windows Update works (actual system updates), but any updates/installations regarding Windows Store just refuses to work.
I've tried multiple fixes I've found online:
Relogged in the Store - achieved nothing
Tried wsreset - achieved nothing
Took ownership and tried switching it around multiple times - achieved nothing
Removed registry keys as suggested on another thread - achieved nothing
Tried sfc /scannow - achieved nothing (it did find a dll file it tried to fix regarding gpu drivers but thats another problem in itself)
Tried running apps.diagcab (not the latest diagnostic app but it provided info which the latest one did not)
Interestingly enough it showed a problem:
"Service registration is missing or corrupt"
It ofcourse failed to fix it and now I'm stuck with no idea how to proceed further, I feel like I've tried pretty much everything.

Worthy note: Since the clean install back then I didn't immediately use my email account with the System knowing that it would create a user folder with the name of my email account, so I made a local account and then later just signed in with my email and associated the system with that.

My Windows Update works (actual system updates), but any updates/installations regarding Windows Store just refuses to work.
I've tried multiple fixes I've found online:
Relogged in the Store - achieved nothing
Tried wsreset - achieved nothing
Took ownership and tried switching it around multiple times - achieved nothing
Removed registry keys as suggested on another thread - achieved nothing
Tried sfc /scannow - achieved nothing (it did find a dll file it tried to fix regarding gpu drivers but thats another problem in itself)
Tried running apps.diagcab (not the latest diagnostic app but it provided info which the latest one did not)
Interestingly enough it showed a problem:
"Service registration is missing or corrupt"
It ofcourse failed to fix it and now I'm stuck with no idea how to proceed further, I feel like I've tried pretty much everything.

Worthy note: Since the clean install back then I didn't immediately use my email account with the System knowing that it would create a user folder with the name of my email account, so I made a local account and then later just signed in with my email and associated the system with that.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit OS. I have researched multiple "fixes" on this site, and still cannot get it to function properly.
Some of the patches are using a Standalone Installer. When they are engaged, it searches for updated files, and that's all it does.
Can anyone assist me in fixing this situation.

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. It's about 5 years old.

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Sounds like a older existing install and you were not clean installing win-7 ?

When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.
Windows Update Settings - Change
After restart verify that the windows update service is not running if it is Stop and switch to Manual apply and okay.

Make sure KB3020369 is installed if not manually install it this is the main article page with all versions,
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369
These other links do prompt you to download as soon as you click on them just to give you a heads up
KB3020369
Win-7 32 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x86.msu
Win-7 64 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x64.msu

Then manually install KB3172605 main article page with all versions,

After switch your windows update and service settings back to what you had prior and manually check for updates and the rest should show up shortly.

4) Default IME not responding in Task Manager
5) Quicktime player goes to not responding
6) You tube videos won?t play, causes IE to go to not responding
7) Embedded videos won?t play, causes IE to go to not responding

Tried MS Fixit: Playing video files crashes or freezes Internet Explorer or Windows (revert to default security settings)

Hi guys

(apologies if this is in the wrong section, wasn't quite sure)

I've recently built a new PC, and this is the first time I've gone for vista. Was previously an XP32 / Ubuntu fan so this is new to me.

I have a rather strange issue that I can't pinpoint the cause on.

After some time (maybe a few hours), firefox will stop working. It doesn't crash, but it just won't load any pages, it just "hangs". The same thing will happen for IE. If i close firefox the window closes, but its still in task manager.

I can't kill the process, well I can click kill, but it doesnt go. I can't load up firefox cos its already running (apparently), and I can't shut the system down, presumably because of this firefox process still running.

I get the same with uTorrent, after about an hour it stops responding and prevents me from shutting down the system.

At the moment I have to just switch the PC off at the mains, and I'm not sure this is a healthy practice.

I was running Avast, Zonealarm. but I have since uninstalled those. I still have the same issue, even if i disable the windows firewall etc.

Any ideas? I've tried googling but it just returns threads suggesting to uninstall antivirus/firewalls

3. Where do you get your drivers? If you get them from Microsoft, have you considered getting them from the hardware manufacturer instead? Microsoft drivers tend to lag behind quite a bit, especially for NICs and video cards.

Hello all I am a long time forum reader first time poster. I hope to gain some very much needed knowledge to my computer problems.

Okay on to my problems. I have an HP G50 laptop with Windows Vista Home Basic SP2 and 3 GB RAM. Every time I turn on the computer Windows starts normally. Once I am in Windows that is where all of my problems begin. I am not having just a single problem but multiple problems.

The first problem: Once in Windows, the network connection icon in the system tray has a Red "X" as it should when not connected to a network. If I go to right click on the icon, the little box pops up white with no options in it and I get the hour glass (spinning circle) and it never goes away. The same goes for clicking on the battery icon to switch the computer into high performance mode.

The second problem: When in the Control Panel, attempting to click on certain items/system functions (Network and Sharing Center, Internet Options, Device Manager, Windows Update, etc.) the Control Panel attempts to go to the item that has been selected but I am then greeted with a White window and hour glass. If I attempt to close the window/click the Red "X" I get no response. The computer doesn't really "lock up" per se, I just do not get any response from the window at all. I can still perform other functions. I have let the computer sit for hours in hopes of the window getting to its destination.

I have searched and read through many posts here and other places and have not been able to find anything about this problem specifically. If I have missed a relevant post that you know of, please let me know. Here's the problem:

Very frequently, though not always, when I try to shutdown or restart
windows I get a series of "program not responding dialogs." The series is
generally the same. With my desktop view still present I get this dialog for the
following programs: "network associates error reporting service," "McAfee
updater," "Hsm Sink Window," "Ati tray icon application," "DIEmWin," "Acrobat
try icon," and "kmw_run.exe" If I choose to end each of these tasks, then
windows proceeds to the shutdown screen where it hangs again. Then I get two
more "program not responding dialogs": "ctfmon.exe" and "explorer.exe."
After ending these two tasks my computer finally shuts down.

I know what each of these programs is except "DIEmWin" and "Hsm Sink
Window." I'm not sure if the problem is with one of these programs--I have
googled them both and had a difficult time finding out what they are. Or
perhaps the problem is with McAfee Virus Scanner, since the first two program
are associated with it. Or maybe the problem has to do with something else

For the past few days it was so bad that I could only start the computer in safe mode.

In fact for a while I thought it had solved the problems... but I'm still having intermittent issues. I'm hoping you can help me figure out if this is virus/malware related.

Ever since yesterday morning, my computer has been crashing at uneven intervals. Sometimes it crashes a few minutes after being turned on, other times an hour, and other times several hours.
 
To make matters worse, these crashes don’t always play out the same way. Sometimes my screen goes black for a split second and I get a notification at the bottom of my screen saying “Display driver AMD has stopped responding and has recovered.” Then my computer will crash, either right away or in a few hours. But I don’t always get this message. Sometimes everything straight-up freezes and I have to force the computer off. Other times, I get a BSoD and my computer automatically tries to restart afterward, but restarting crashes me too.
 
I should also mention that nothing I’m doing seems to be triggering these crashes. Sometimes I’ll just be browsing the Internet, sometimes I’ll be in Photoshop or Word, and other times I won’t have any programs running, aside from Skype and Discord in the background.
 
I looked up solutions to the AMD driver issue. I tried adding a TdrDelay with a value of 8 and also updating my driver, but neither of these seemed to work, so I’m inclined to think I have some kind of hardware failure, or perhaps an overheating issue?
 
I just ran WhoCrashed, so I’m hoping someone can make sense of its findings. I'll paste that below. Thanks to anyone willing to help me out.

Greetings! I'm a new member and this is my first post - bare with me.

I'm curious if any of you have had issue with Access 2007 on Vista in a multi-user environment. I recently upgraded a clients office from XP to Vista and also upgraded their MS office package to 2007. (They were previously using office 2000).

Their CRM was located within an Access 2000 MDB. Since the installation, the database was upgraded from MDB to ACCDB (2000 to 2007). The database is located on a 2000 server which is a trusted location within the new trust 'feature' of Access. Database size is ~100mb, network is 1000mb.

Performance previously was nearly instant. Since the upgrade, the application will stop responding when switching back and forth between windows (say Internet Explorer then back to Access) for several seconds. Queries that took 1 second now take 45.

I'm kind of stumped at the moment. With one user in the database it works just fine. Performance degrades the more users open the database. I'm sure it has something to do with security settings (either on vista, in the new version of access or both). Please respond if you've ran into a similar issue or can point me in the right direction.

Thanks,
--Jake

Hi,

I'll start out with my PC's specs: Intel i3 processor, 4GB memory, 500GB HDD, onboard sound and video.

Recently, I have been receiving the "Not responding" error in multiple programs, in addition to a lot of hangs throughout the system. For example, if I use a web browser for an hour, it probably happens 4-5 times. This happens in both IE9 and Chrome, and it appears to be random. It doesn't matter if I have 10 programs and 5 tabs open or just the browser with 1 tab. Also, sometimes it will hang if I'm simply dragging icons on the desktop around with no programs open.

Some more potentially helpful information is that I can open every single program I have pinned to my taskbar at the same time (I have 10) and they will all open with awesome speed, no hangs, no problems at all.

I at first thought it was registry issues, so I downloaded CCleaner and ran both the system cleaner and the registry cleaner, and it has helped none.

I desperately need this issue fixed. I use my laptop for everything, including taking notes for my college classes, and the hanging hinders this a lot.

If someone could please help me, I'll provide any information you need about my PC. It's only a year old, and this is very frustrating.

PS, I know a decent amount about specifics on computers, but am not extremely knowledgable about motherboards, BIOS, etc. So please keep that in mind when you give an answer.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this is the place to put this thread, but I couldn't figure out where else it goes.

For a while, my Thinkpad T500 running Win10 has been acting up. Sometimes when prompted to open a file in a software, when you click the drop down menu (where you can change which file type you are looking for) everything will be unresponsive for a second before flashing back to how it was. That was't a very good explanation, but it's kind of hard to describe. I ran my laptop without my battery (using an adapter) and it worker better, so I know that my battery is a problem. But sometimes when I open an application, it will open, flash and flicker the Not Responding in the top bar next to the name of the program, and then it will open successfully. There's also times when my mouse will vigorously flicker between the busy icon and the normal icon.

I've also been having a problem with the battery icon disappearing from the dock after starting my computer. Each time I boot up the laptop I have to go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Batteries > Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and disable it then re-enable it.

I'm not sure which of these is a hardware problem and which are software problems, but I'm hoping someone could help me.

None of the other forums I post on could help me with this, but I'll give it a try here.

You may be familiar with SubProfile. It's a free software & server where users can create "subprofiles," which have subpages the user makes, like jokes, etc., guestbooks, and visitor logs, to name a few features. You place a link to your SubProfile site in your AIM profile. The link is set up so it opens in the Get Info window, and so it links to something like:

subprofile.com/v.php?userid=23236235235&nick=%n

AIM automatically replaces the %n with the person's AIM screen name, so the link would be like:

...&nick=myscreenname

I created a PHP page hosted on my server which I link to in my AIM profile. It has a visitor log much like SubProfile's,. Now, the %n thing works if the user's screenname is only one word--that is, no spaces. If his/her sn is something like "my screen name," however, the user will get an "error loading content" message when he/she click the link. SubProfile somehow found a way around this, because theirs works. Do any of you happen to know what I could do?

Thanks.

Hello. One of my nurses at the dialysis center gave me her old Gateway computer (with a 1.2 GHz Athlon) after the hard drive died. I happened to have a new hard drive, so was excited to finally have something a little faster then my PII 333. I finally got a legitimate copy of WinXP Pro, and everything was proceeding well with the installation. I activated it a couple of days ago over the internet, and everything seemed fine.

Yesterday I was working on the newer machine, and turned the moniter off while I went and did some other things for a few hours. When I came back and turned the moniter on, the computer had locked up (screen frozen, no mouse or keyboard).

Turned the computer off, turned it back on and got some beeps. Checked the video card, it was a little loose so tightened it down. No beeps, but also no signal to the moniter. The motherboard has built in video so pulled the card and tried that, still no beeps and no signal.

I fear the motherboard may have died--wouldn't surprise me if it was built during the period when they seemed to have a batch of bad capaciters. What I want to know is with the recent decision by Microsoft to consider a new motherboard a new computer, did I just lose a bunch of money on this copy of WinXP? The computer wasn't even fully functioning yet because it wasn't recognizing the sound card.

Thanks.

Hello all, the novice here again. I have already completed upgrading my computer. I now have a 64 mb nvidia pci video card. This is nice because it replaces my old on board chip set (intel 8mb).. Very nice, indeed. However, I can only get it to work after tinkering with my junk for a while and it is getting old real fast. See, the way my friend put it to me is...I have to figure out how to get my pc to stop reading my old video card and just read the new one. Also I found that the thing also creates a default monitor as well as the installed monitor now it seems I have a problem. 2 monitors and two video cards. I have gone in and disabled them from the device manager but that is not working then I remove them from the device manager alltogether and then when I restart my pc they come right back. I am curious is there anyway that I can disable my on board card and get rid of this "Default" monitor. This way hopefully my pc can concentrate on the video card and the monitor that is supposed to be used so I can start my games on the first try. (otherwise I get an error a fault in DMtp.34...or something like that) seems like I need more experience with things....Can someone advise me please...Thanks again......I did check in the bios and the only video options that I found were giving me the option to use agp or pci slot as the adapter to use of course since I have only pci slots I will have to choose pci or I get a blank screen. Also I checked the mother board for jumpe... Read more

As you will see, everything depends on your OS, motherboard, drivers etc.
I am sure someone here will be able to help you if you can post full details of your setup.

If you haven't got all the information, and you don't already have AIDA32, you can get it's successor (Everest) from;http://www.lavalys.com/ (and there is still a free 'Home' version).

Once you have full details and post them it, hopefully, will be possible for somone to help you more. Unfortunately that won't be me, because I don't know enough about the technical stuff!!

Was surfing last night and got some crazy spyware popup thing and eventually the popups got overblown before i could run my virus scan. So I tried a reboot. Upon restart, my computer kept rebooting right after the Windows XP screeen. So decided to go back to a restore point and run virus scan. Problem contnued. Tried to boot into all SAFE modes. Still keep rebooting. Tried boot disk and it failed and I received a system error. Told me to run chkdsk and retry. Chkdsk said everything was ok. Still can't get into safe mode. All I have is a dos prompt in the recovery mode. my error is STOP 0X0000007B (0X78D2524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)Need my computer badly to get a report in today. I'm bummed. Please help ZzEDIT: Moved from XP to Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

A:My crazy luck

I guess, its not a problem wit OS, may be one of your hardware is failed, most probability is of your RAM. try to reinsert the RAM into motherboard and try again rebooting.
