Combofix Error - PC Keeps rebooting

Q: Combofix Error - PC Keeps rebooting

I ran ComboFix on a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. It now keeps rebooting itself. Can anyone help?

Preferred Solution: Combofix Error - PC Keeps rebooting

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.)

A: Combofix Error - PC Keeps rebooting

As you have found out, Combofix is a powerful tool. This is the reason for the disclaimer that tells you not to use it unless supervised by a HJT team member. Combofix is not to be used outside of the HJT forum. I would recommend posting there and see if one of the team members can help you

See if it's a startup item. If so, disable or delete it, your preference. You can use either of the programs below for a quick look at startups.

Yesterday I ran ComboFix in one of the office's computer and it took out a nasty rootkit that was slowing down the computer. But today when I ran ComboFix in another PC, also with Windows Xp, it went thru all the steps, then it said it needed to reboot the machine, it did it but it keeps rebooting only. It only arrives to the Window's welcome screen and then restarts again.I tried F8 in Safe Mode and also Last Good Configuration but is the same result: keeps restarting.Can anyone tel me what should I do? Please, dont tell me: "Combofix is a powerful utilty, you shouldnt have used it without guidance" )Thank you so much for any help!Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Xp keeps rebooting after comboFix

Just to inform.
It seems I cant get help, so I will reformat my hard disk.
I went into the windows with a Live CD and replaced the Kernell and some other files in the system32 folder, as microsoft recomends for when the computer keeps rebooting, but it was unsuccesful.
Now Im trying to backup my files to do a clean installation.
Im not happy anyway, I would prefer to know the problem and to fix it instead of reformat, thats the easy way for sure, but not the most "rich" in terms of experience...

Since yesterday, my PC has been shutting off abruptly and then suddenly I see a complete reboot of the system...
Initially I thought it was only when I was running flash videos in fullscreen, but then I saw it happened most randomly... sometimes my PC would run for a whole hour or so and then sometimes a few minutes only..

My PC is running on a Windows XP upgraded from Windows 98.

I ran Combofix first followed by HijackThis... I have attached the logs here...

Please help me!!!

PS: My computer crashed once while I was typing this in and the only one tab of firefox was all that was running!!!

Combofix was run on my computer but has now stopped at the "Rebooting Windows...Please wait" screen. It has been stuck there for almost 2 hours. I haven't touched anything because I don't want to do something wrong. The program was recommended to me by a specialist and seemed to run perfectly until it stopped at that screen.

A:Combofix stuck on rebooting windows screen

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum. No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here. Depending on how badly your system is infected, ComboFix may take longer to complete its routine than it normally does. However, there are circumstances ComboFix will hang or stall at various stages due to malware interference, failure to disable any other real-time protection tools and CD Emulators (Daemon Tools, Alchohol 120%, Astroburn, AnyDVD) so that it does not complete successfully. While that is not normal behaviour, it is not unusual. In such cases, it is helpful to know at what stage CF stalled and to provide that information to the Helper who is assisting you so they can investigate. If you don't know and it still appears to be struck, frozen or failed to reboot, then reboot the computer manually.

My PC was infected with the same malware problem as outlined by MLinau (Google Gala Hijack - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic259577.html). I followed the steps recommended to her ... all except for the last one, which turns out to be a pretty important step. I did not click Start >> Run and type in ComboFix /u. After ensuring the malware was gone, I rebooted and the PC came up with the Windows User Account screen which I have never used before. It asked me for the password to login under the user account for my last name but since I didn't know the password (doesn't exist to my knowledge), I logged in as guest. It proceeded to tell me there were several files missing and brought up a half-baked version of Windows. I tried to run the ComboFix /u command but it tells me I don't have access. Any ideas on how I can undo the ComboFix now? I appreciate it. Your help was huge until I shot myself in the foot.

I have my daughter's computer here, trying to fix it. She's a single mom with not much money so she has no way of taking it in and having it fixed. It started shutting down with a blue screen with a bunch of writing on it that shut down too fast to read. I caught page fault and memory dump. I tried to restore to an earlier date, but it wouldn't do it. I tried a system recovery, and it still did it. I did a full system restore and now after it installs...when it goes to reboot...it goes to the boot options i.e. safe mode, last known good configuration, etc. It does it over and over. Sometimes that blue screen with all the writing will pop up before it reboots. Any suggestions, short of shooting it and burying it, would be much appreciated. She was so excited that her sister gave her the computer and now this!


A:Full System Recovery Then Rebooting And Rebooting And Rebooting.....

Without being able to see the error message, it's hard to tell. But I'd guess it's one of two things: either the hard drive is too full or a piece of hardware, such as a drive or sound card or something, has failed. If the hard drive is too full and there isn't enough RAM to load Windows into, it tries to swap some data over to the hard drive, but being no room, it simply shuts down and dumps the memory. There are things that can possibly be done for this, but more info is needed. If you have upgraded Windows from an earlier version, and the system is a FAT 32 system, you can get in and delete files with a Windows boot disk, such as from Windows 98. Sometimes, you can start the system with something like Ultimate Boot Disk, which uses a scaled-down Linux operating system, and then use included tools to delete or move files.

If a device has failed, the only way to troubleshoot it is to remove devices. If you get lucky, you can find the bad one.

When you restored Windows, I'm guessing you did an over-the-top reinstall, and didn't lose any data, is that right? Or did you do a complete wipe and restore?

It started about 3 months ago when windows rebooted for an update install and it wouldn't go past the Xp loading screen, just restarting, so I did the F8 thing and it worked when I went with last good settings option. This problem happened a few more times over the last 2 months, only working with the F8 thing,
then, two days ago, I restarted, same problem, went to do the usual and now even when I do th f8 thing it wont work at all.
So I finally got a choice to disable restart on system failure, I got as far as the loading screen and then got the blue screen,
it said to try turning of bios memory options like shadowing and caching, I checked and found no options like this turned on.
My buddy told me it happened to him and it was bad ram, so I checked my DIMMS, tried first with one stick, and then the other,
and still same problem. pls help

A:XP error rebooting

Your friend and I had the exact same problem. Well, I still have that problem, but I'm not going to waste money on RAM when I need a new computer anyway.

But, to see about your problem. Microsoft has a memory diagnostic:


there are others like memtest:


Also, run the chkdsk utility from the command prompt. It'll undo some of the damage bad RAM can cause by finding errors written down on the harddrive and either delete them or repair the bad files. To run it, go to the Run menu, type chkdsk /f.

Ever since this spring, my computer's been having this freaky rebooting error, the impatient man's worst nightmare. When I open my computer, it has this floppy drive checking sound, with the A:/ drive light flashing, then it refuses to boot to my operating system or bios screen, making my monitor go blank. I have to press the reset button several times for this to work. First it was pressing the button 2-3 times, then 15-30 times. Now I have to wait at least 4-5 hours after my computer is shutdown before i even think of opening it up again and pressing the reset button to get my system to work. Any faster and the reset button is useless in booting up my system. There's no problem with my operating system though.

I've changed my bios setting to only check the CD-Drive, defaulted it, formated harddrive to fat 16 then back to fat 32. reinstalled the operating system, checked my ram cards and replaced the floppy drive. I don't think this is a hardware error, but rather a virus. Can someone plz help identifying what my problem is?

Could it be that I need to replace my bios chip?

Wondering if someone can help me. I had BSOD problems with this PC over a year ago which ARC was able to fix. About a couple of months ago the OS would 'freeze' and then the PC would reboot itself. Sometimes that occured after the system had been idle for over half an hour. However it also occurred while browsing and also while writing emails.

I have checked sfc /scannow - no reported problems
Have run CCleaner's latest version

I have not changed any hardware or loaded any new programs. Therefore I assume that an update must be causing the issue. Can anyone assist me please?

A few days ago I got a virus that mcaffee detected and apparently fixed but soon after I started getting messages saying services and controller apps encountered a problem and needs to be shut down and that services.exe closed and will shutdown the comp in 30 secs or a minute.

I was browsing the forums and saw that two people had similar problems but their fixes have not completely solved my problem. I did a virus scan using avast and some viruses were found and placed in the chest then I went to kaspersky and did their online virus check and it took a number of times because it kept restarting while scanning but I got the logs before my pc would shutdown and then just erased the files on reboot. I also did a spybot S&D and found a number of entries. After the kaspersky scan things seemed to be ok for a day but I started to get the shutdown errors again and I completed another scan and found some more viruses. I also have ran and finished another kaspersky scan and didn't find anything but still got the errors. I am running it one more time to see if any thing is found. Below is my hijack this log.

Hi, new here. Got a Toshiba satellite A75-S1253 laptop with the:
Intel Pentium 4 Processor 538 supporting HT Technology (3.20 GHz) with WIN XP HOME.

I recently updated my MP3 rocket music program to the new and improved after being away from an internet connection for about a month, and also Windows automatically updated and installed, then I rebooted, And now get a Load Error! "Press a key to reboot..." but the only way to reboot is cntrl alt del.
Before I get this error I get the Toshiba title screen then I have the choice of going F2 into the Bios which is currently Version V1.50, Or F12 and selecting where I want to boot from 1. hard disk, 2. cd/dvd drive, 3. removable devices, 4. network boot. I downloaded and made a disk for the SpotMau power suite, which was supposed to be a fixall, but I am still in dialog with their techs, because I cannot access the menu for their program after it loads, and end up rebooting. Then I found my Toshiba recovery and applications/ drivers dvd, and did two fresh installs which the program slowly completes and upon reboot, still have a Load Fail. Once with the SpotMau disk, I was able to get to MsDos, but couldn't access the main drive.

A:Get A Load Error Upon Powering Up Or Rebooting

If you've restored using the Toshiba CD/DVD and it still doesn't work, then it's likely that there's a hardware issue with your system. A problem with the hard drive is less likely than other hardware issues because you're able to install Windows from the CD without issues (although it's slow)Try running MemTest86 to test your RAM (bootable CD also) - free from here: http://www.memtest86.com/Try running a diagnostic utility on your hard drive from a bootable CD - these are usually available for free from the manufacturer of your hard drive. The SpotMau program has utilities for this, but I prefer those from the hard drive manufacturer as they are designed for your hard drive in particular. As I stated earlier, this isn't likely to find an issue - but it's still a possibility that shouldn't be ignored.After that, it'll be necessary to test the motherboard - and I can't recommend any free software for that that works outside of Windows. The cheapest that I've found this type of software is $400 - and I can't see paying that for just one PC. You may be able to get this test run at a PC repair shop for a small fee. If it's less than a year old, you may be able to contact Toshiba for a repair under warranty.

First, let me say, this is an OLD computer. I just upgraded from ME to XP. I am getting an error message about lsass.exe and it automatically shuts down & restarts. I've been running spybot, adaware, spysweeper - them all - trying to get all the 'gunk' out. Tons of stuff in here. Any way, here is my HJT log - I'm hoping something on here has to do with the lsass.exe error. I can't stay on long enough to get the updates and whatnot from Microsoft.

I have a system giving me this error every time the desktop comes up:

1/ "This application has failed to start because BHO.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem". The top of this box is titled - "ie3sh.exe unable to locate component."

2/ "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you if a solution is available." The top of this box is titled - "IE3SH Application has stopped working."

After about ten seconds, the system does a crash dump and then reboots. When the option to select safe mode comes up, it does not allow me to select it and stays locked on starting windows normally. The desktop comes back up and the cycle starts all over again.

Someone had d/l a program onto the system earlier that day that I am pretty sure contained the adware/malware that is causing the havoc. I am not sure what the best program to try to run is. Any suggestions?

I'm faced with a serious problem: My pc has both an IDE hdd and a SATA hdd, both used for storage of my files. When I tried to backup a hdd from another computer that I thought contained errors to the SATA drive, Windows XP reported that some folders contained errors, and that I should use scandisk to fix the problem. Foolishly I ignored the error since I had to go to bed, and turned the computer off. When I tried to boot up this morning, xp keeps rebooting when the SATA drive is plugged in! It gets to the loading screen with the xp logo, then the screen goes black, and the system reboots.

Is there any way to fix the SATA hdd? If I don't plug it in, the system boots fine (xp is installed on the IDE hdd). Thanks alot in advance!

My system specs:

ASUS A7N8X-E motherboard
AMD athlon xp 3000+
1GB ram
2 hdd (1 IDE - main drive, 1 SATA)
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro

For the past 3 weeks, my computer keeps hanging and restarting of its own at random intervals. The computer was performing well until the 3rd of march, when I bought a BENQ DW 1650 DVD Writer. I replaced it with my old LG CD writer. It installed perfectly well, it was a simple plug and play device. When I restarted the computer after a few hours, after startup the system suddenly hanged. This had never happened for the past 2.5 yrs while I have been using this computer. On a cold restart, I got the error message [might not be 100% accurate as I hadn?t noted it down but I am trying to recall, ?Your computer has recovered from a serious error. A direct draw function could not be performed by the graphics card.? In the event log, I got this???.

<I apologize if this should be in Hardware-HDDs - I couldn't decide where it made more sense>

Windows Vista HP Desktop - System Disk is WD Caviar Blue 640Gb

Just bought a new 1Tb Caviar Black drive. Planned to make it the system drive after getting it all set up so it's installed in position 1 in the system and I was using the boot menu to select the actual system disk, now in position 3 to boot.

I used Easus Partition Master to partition the new drive it but didn't like the results. So I set it to delete the partitions and "wipe the drive" not realizing that "wipe the drive" was not what I wanted to do. The machine rebooted and was taking forever in the "wipe" phase so after a couple of hours and 2% completion I turned the machine off thinking that the only disk that was being affected by the procedure would be the new unpartitioned drive with nothing on it. (Prior to doing this I did some searching on the topic and consensus seemed to be that since it was not the system disk being formatted/wiped, it wouldn't have any affect at all. So much for that idea.)

Now I can't boot the machine. It asked if I wanted to do a startup repair and I said yes. But it failed. Then I got an "ERROR 100c" and now the machine keeps rebooting.

I used F8 to get to the menu where I tried to boot into Safe mode. Didn't work. There's a Repair option. That didn't work. I tried the "use last known good configuration to boot" and th... Read more

Any Ideas on how to fix it?


If this is the first time you've seen this screen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Run CHKDSK / F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Refer to your Getting Started manual for more information on troubleshooting Stop Errors.

Heya all

Wonder if anyone could possibly help? Mid November I built myself (for the first time) a computer and it was running wonderfully until about 2 weeks ago.

What I mean by this is that it is constantly rebooting itself, with no input from myself, when I am either browsing the internet, or playing games like BF3/MW3/Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

I have tried removing a ram block and it seemed to help for about 10 minutes until it then rebooted itself whilst I was playing a round of MW3.

The error that I get is in the title (Error 41 - Kernel Power). No log is being created when the computer is rebooted automatically (have already checked this). I have run PSU calculators a plenty and they are saying I am in need of a 400w PSU and I am currently running a 550w PSU (after my 500w died a month or so ago!). Could the old PSU dying have had any effect on the current situation?

Computer build is as follows:

AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2Ghz (not overclocked)
ASRock M3A UCC Motherboard
MSI Cyclone Edition 6850 (Factory Overclocked)
4GB DDR3 Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz RAM

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:


H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)

I'm hoping I can get this input before my machine crashes again (XP). It crashes about every 10 minutes - 5 of which it takes to boot up.
I keep getting DCOM Server Process Launcher is unable to launch the service (I think that is what it says).
Then it gives me the location of a file in the owner/local settings/temp directory - which promptly gets deleted and my machine reboots.
I was able to run spybot, but the machine doesn't stay up long enough to run adaware. Here is the hijack log. Can you please help me?

I know this isass.exe thing has been mentioned here before - but most posts I have found say "try running this" and "try running that". Well, I can't get in to any kind of operating system to run anything as my laptop is continuously rebooting itself.
I have tried F2, F8, F10, safe mode, safe mode with command line, debugging mode, every single option in fact - but every time, I get the same isass.exe warning and the laptop reboots again before it starts windows.
Does anybody know how I can break out of this cycle????
I tried booting from an HP recovery CD and it warned me that it was going to wipe all my data - and I have three years of work on there (I know I am stupid for not having a backup :-( but I don't!).

I have a brand new Dell XPS 8100 with Windows 7 x64 Professional. I keep getting random power losses where the computer turns off then after a few seconds starts back up again. The computer instantly shuts down as if the power lead has been pulled out. There are no errors or BSODs, the event viewer is showing Critical Error 41 Kernel-Power. When the computer does go off, the LED on the motherboard and PSU remain lit.

I have tested the PSU with a multimeter and the results are showing its healthy. The video card and memory has been re-seated. Dell have been out to replace the motherboard and heatsink.

I have re-installed Windows 7 using the recovery dvd so this should rule out any faulty software or drivers. RAC has been disabled in the task scheduler which didn't help.

I see from google there are a lot of people with this problem, many of which went unsolved. I would be grateful for any help.

Update: I have ran on OpenSuse Live DVD for the last 4 hours without any problems. I rebooted into windows and within minutes the computer powered down again. I don't this still doesn't identify the problem but IF it was a fault with windows 7, what could it be? I want to try tweak windows 7 before I go asking for a replacement machine.

My system just started to reboot itself in the last 2weeks and can not seem to find any fault that is going on.

While on the system watching a movie or browsing the web the system just reboots for no reason. No logs were made in event logs or in Reliability Monitor (only shows diruptive shutdown).
I just changed the bios to restart after crash in the power management. Before I had it turned off.
I've cleaned out the system 3weeks ago, as my 3month maintance I usually do, so its not dust.

Can anyone give a clue what could be wrong? Its only a 3 year old system with current drivers and maintained periodically.

Some days back, i decided to upgrade my sustem from windows xp sp2 to windows xp sp3 using an XP CD. Setup was running fine until when the system requested to restart to complete upgrade.

On restarting, booting from CD....i got this message "3waredrv.sys file could not be found press any key to continue"... Which i did but it keep on repeating same thing. Showing setup failed. I later choose the option to start windows normally. It started normally and everything was fine but only a little bit slower.

Still wanted to upgrade to sp3, so i downloaded it from microsoft website onto my desktop, double it and installation process was going on fine. A dialog box with the heading "software update"....and processes like "backing up files", "copying file", and "installing files" were running. Half way through the installation, came a box ..."setup error.... cannot copy 'ispid.dll'....specified the path". I did everything to find the file...or i seem to have found a file with that name but still setup error. I decided to cancel. Some minutes later, i got the message "upgrade did not complete...windows may not function properly",....seconds later..."windows is shuting down".

On restarting, i got normal booting but with an option to continue setup even with no CD in the drive. Which all at some point end up with the message....
