Questions about the technologies used on my computer, resetting my computer, and resolving unexpected shutdowns

Q: Questions about the technologies used on my computer, resetting my computer, and resolving unexpected shutdowns

A. About five years before my husband passed, while unemployed for 18 months, I noticed sometime

during that 18 months that some things had changed on my computer but he denied doing anything

to it. I have had nothing but problems with it ever since.

B. To try to rid myself of all the problems I have been having, I did a restore from the computers

SYSTEM RESTORE-RESTORE TO FACTORY STATUS but noticed no changes after that restore. Recently,

I did a RESTORE TO FACTORY STATUS using my factory SYSTEM RESTORE DISKS. I noticed a "SCRIPTED

RESTORE" in my list of restore points immediately after I did the restore. It was the first

restore point after factory disk restore of the computer and it did not restore it back to

factory status as I had expected.

Problems I've been having and questions I have:
1. Multiple script errors from multiple sources.
2. Often I keep getting this message:

Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

This is what I received when I viewed the problem:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCCode: 1000008e
BCP1: C0000005
BCP2: 81C52785
BCP3: 86B5B064
BCP4: 00000000
OS Version: 6_0_6002
Service Pack: 2_0
Product: 768_1

3. Computer or web sites hang constantly.



4. Computer is shutting down unexpectedly frequently.

5. When I first got the computer, I set it up for only one administrator, but now there is an Administrator

and an Administrators listed along with many other items.

6. Through things I found on the computer, my husband had set up a "VIRTUAL MACHINE" and a "VIRTUAL PRIVATE

NETWORK," whatever that is. I think he did something that is controlling my computer and keeps me from

controlling it myself, where on the internet I go, and what I can or cannot do on my computer. How do

I rid my computer of this?

7. What is shadowing? Is this something he set up to watch what I was doing on the computer?

8. I know he was doing these things remotely from his computer which was running Windows XP.

9. My computer is running Windows Vista, his was running Windows XP. Many times when updating something or

downloading something, I will get the message that the update or the download is not compatable with my

system of Windows XP and I know my system is Windows Vista. Somehow I feel there is something he put

on my computer that incorporated Windows XP and Vista onto my computer.

10. I know he used GROUP POLICY and SQL.10.
11. Originally, we had a home network named xxxxxxx,and sometime
during the time we had the original modem is when I noticed the changes to my computer. Then we

required a new modem from our carrier which they installed and set up a new home network per my request.
After that, I noticed that, the new network was showing up as a sub-network to the original network

instead of a totally new and separate network.

12. Is there anyone out there who can walk me through getting rid of all that he has done to my computer

and get it back to factory status? I don't have the money to take the computer to a shop nor

purchase a new one as I am on a very strict budget with no extra money beyond my monthly bills. I

use my computer constantly and all these problems prevent me from accomplishing
what I want or need to accomplish because I spend all my time trying to fix the errors I am getting.

Preferred Solution: Questions about the technologies used on my computer, resetting my computer, and resolving unexpected shutdowns

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.)

Hey there,

I purchased an ASUS x501U a few months ago at Target--it is a cheap computer but it got decent reviews and the specs are actually pretty good. I went to reset the factory settings, and there was an error (This also occurs with refreshing). After several tries, I have gotten my computer to the screen that says "System Restore" "System Image Recovery" "Automatic Repair" "Command Prompt" "UEFI Firmware Settings" "Startup Settings". I don't know what steps to take from here--I'm not computer illiterate but most of my knowledge is in graphic design. I figured it is not a lost cause because I can access Command Prompt. Someone please help! This is my first post, and I really can't eat the $400 I paid for this!

Thanks

Hi,
 
This afternoon my computer started asking whether I wanted to allow Windows Activation Technologies to make changes to my computer. I keep clicking "No," but it pops up again every thirty seconds to two minutes later. I looked it up and it's apparently an anti-piracy software that prevents an illegitimate copy of Windows from running after 30 days or so, but I've had my legitimate computer for about two-and-a-half years now. I suspect a virus or whatever is trying to use it to maliciously affect my system. My computer has also become less responsive, briefly freezing every so often and not always registering when I click on something. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium with a 64-bit operating system on a Lenovo laptop. The program that keeps requesting permission is located at C:\Windows\system32\Wat\WatAdminSvc.exe . There's probably a lot more information you need--I've seen posts with huge logs of data--so please let me know what info you need and how to get it for you.

Hello,

Im very sorry I couldnt be as descriptive as possible in my tittle description, I will do so in full now.

Last night a storm caused the power to flicker and then go completely off and on for a few minutes. Now during the boot up process on my fathers computer, I get a prompt screen from windows telling that due to a incorrect shut down I should choose a method of booting; safe mode, safe mode with networking, start windows normally.. (you know the rest of the gib) If I tell windows to start normally, it gets to the final booting phase showing the small blue progress bar, but the computer resets itself.

It also will not go into safe mode, nor safe mode with command prompt, no kind of safe mode what so ever. Essentially, the computer gets right up the point of finally kicking 100% and then a reset which brings me back through the normal booting process and to the choose a method of boot screen.

I've got a question. I have a computer running windows 7 64 bit, Home Premium.
The computer name is "Laptop", verified in Computer -> Properties. I have another computer whose name is "Machine-A". For some weird reason, whenever I do "ping Machine-A" on the command line, it would return pinging from 127.0.0.1 . Why does it think "Machine-A" is the computer name?
I did "ipconfig /flushdns", and didn't work. Then I did "ipconfig /flushdns" then "ipconfig /registerdns" and did not fix the problem. I need help. Thanks

A:Computer name resolving wrong IP

The 127.0.0.1 is windows host file.

I'm not sure what is up with the names, can't see much from here.

The ipconfig/all might be of more value.

Hi, I registered a new domain and pointed it at a folder on an existing hosting account. My ISP verified that it is resolving correctly. However, on my computer I see the default page for the domain registrar (godaddy). On another computer in my house the domain resolves correctly. I only have problems on my computer, in both Chrome and Firefox. I have tried ipconfig /flushdns, eliminating godaddy cookies, rebooting, etc, but to no avail. I have checked hosts file and there is no entry for the new domain (unlikely but I checked just the same!)

Hi everyone. There may not be an easy answer to this but I thought I?d try. I have a Gateway GT5662 desktop. I bought it right near ten years ago in April, 2008. It?s been an amazing computer.

Starting over the summer or so, it began to randomly shut off when I left it idle. In the ?event viewer?, it would always give me the message stating ?the shutdown at xxx time was unexpected? with little other information. There was one occasion where it said it was due to my video card overheating. Every other time, the reason has not been stated.

I did a lot of reading on this issue and replaced the power supply. I also disabled the screen saver (haha) which was generally always running when the shutdown occurred. This approach worked for a while and I thought maybe the issue was behind me. I still have the SS disabled. Over the past week or two, the issue has started again, however.

My computer was left idle at about 2:30 this morning and shut down at 9:41 for an unknown reason. The computer started back up just fine and typically does. I did run chkdsk, and I apparently paid for that as I was getting a blue screen of death after trying to restart a few times, but this issue has now resolved. I do not believe the blue screen to be the error causing the shut down, or at least I don?t think so.

The blue screen error, per bluescreenview, was a critical object termination error. The crash address was ntkrnlpa.exe+e2328 and was caused by driver pwipf6.sys. I ... Read more

Hello.

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I just encounted 3 unexpected shutdowns. Is there a way that I can find out the cause to these shutdowns? Nothing was detected in a virus scan using AVG 7.5. Nothing was detected in the Problem Reports and Solutions Centre. Here are some of the details that I recorded.

Computer Make/Model Acer Aspire 5720
Operating System Windows Vista Home Premium
Date/Time of Occurance 28/03/08 (Today) 7pm (12 Minutes Ago)
Problem 3 Shutdowns within 10 minutes

Shutdown 1 Running Mozilla Firefox, Windows Live Messenger and Adobe Photoshop CS2. Shutdown while changing programs.

Shutdown 2 Turned PC on after 1st unexpected shutdown. Started booting Operating System then Shutdown.

Shutdown 3 Turned PC on after 2nd shutdown. Did the same as Shutdown 2.

Startup 1 Turned PC On, Booted Operating System in Repair Mode (as recommended) could not fix errors, System Restored.

After this my computer has worked as normal but I am only using Firefox to post this error here to find the potential problem. Please help!

Hello

Should this be in Windows Forums??

My computer (details below) started to shut itself down unexpectedly. At first I thought it was overheating, but it persisted in crashing and wouldn't reboot unless I isolated it from the power supply. The periods between bootups and crashes went from 45 minutes down to a few minutes. I decided to do a reformat of my hard drive. After I had re-installed Windows 98, I shut down and went to bed.

The next day, I noticed on the bootup screen that my processor speed had reduced from a 600 MHZ Via Cyrix III to a Via Samuel MMX 400MHZ. Why did this happen. Is it an example of the manufacturer overclocking? Or is there some other reason why the speed reduced and the processor changed?

Additionally, the time between bootup and crash is now anything from between a few minutes down to a few seconds. Sometimes it doesn't get as far as loading Windows. Every diagnostic program I ran before my problem showed that my computer was pretty crap compared to others. So another question is: has anyone else (particularly UK) had similar problems with a similar computer to mine?

OEM Computer
Quantum Microponents Ltd
CentaurHauls x86 Family 6 Model 6 Stepping 0

Virtual Memory 32bit

I don't know if all this is relevant information.

Hi and welcome

Most of these were caused by your video driver. One by your raid

I would uninstall the driver and download and install a fresh copy

Update your raid driver

run a system file check

I do not know if this would help to identify the problem but the last time I had the shutdown I noticed something; as usual, the PC tried to go to sleep mode after 10m of inactivity. However, this time I saw that even though the PC stopped sending data to the TV, the PC was still running. Them, it had the "unexpected shutdown".

As follows, the problem description as it appears in windows the next time I restarted the PC. Any thought?

Thanks!!!

- I have checked to see if fan is running, it is.
- I have checked to see if fan is blocked at all, it is not.

What happens is the computer will shut down in the middle of whatever it is I am doing. Upon the computer automatically re-booting, all I see is a black screen with a blinking cursor (the _ character). This has happened twice before so I know how to get the computer to boot again. Here is the process I must go through:

Boot to a Windows 7 Recovery CD
Start Command Prompt
Enter the following commands:
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /fixmbr

I do not know what the computer is doing or what is causing these issues or even why exactly those two commands make it so I can boot into windows again, but it fixes it.

This just happened a few minutes ago and I decided to check the event log and this is what I found SECONDS before the computer shut down:

Hello!

I've been having this problem with my computer shutting down. Basically, it went like this...

A while back, I was playing a game, and it clicked off. Just shut right down, power off. This mystified me, so I went back to a game, and it shut down again. I ran a RAM test from a bootable CD, and it came back fine. Furthermore, it didn't shut down at all in the hour that it was testing -- so I thought it couldn't be the power supply, because it would have cut out during the RAM test. I thought it must have been something else...

I then got the notion to go into Safe Mode and uninstall and then reinstall my video drivers. This fixed it for about two days, and furthermore, the system didn't seem to crash during the time I was in Safe Mode (admittedly, I wasn't in there for very long, but should have been long enough to produce a crash). During these two days of bliss, I thought "Ah, the problem was my video card, the drivers must have gotten corrupted. Now it's fixed."

So earlier today, I was on the computer when it shut off, just as before. This freaked me out, and so I thought, "Ah, the problem must be my power supply." It didn't make sense, though, because the reinstalled drivers seemed to fix the issue for a little bit.

I turned it back on and it crashed during the Windows load. After that, it wouldn't turn on -- although the Power light on my motherboard was on. I managed to shut it down after a while, and... Read more

I am running Win 7 Professional version, retail version. (Downloaded). I've had it on this computer for probably a year or more, and never had any problems. I can be using the computer all day, and never had a problem. But then overnight or when the computer is idle for a few hours, I will come back and it will have reboot and the error message.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Now that you've isolated the Event ID occurences, go back into Event Viewer as per your screenshot and click on the Details tab then select each event occurence in turn.

You should then be able to establish a common cause each time your computer shuts down.

Hi, new to this forum, so excuse me if I leave something out. I have a 4-year-old HP Pavilion DV 7t-2200 running Win 7 SP1, restored to factory image in July 2010, recently restored to an image from close to that time and updated. For at least 6 months, and probably longer, the computer has been shutting down unexpectedly. Currently it's doing so every few days. The shutdowns almost always happen overnight when no one is using the computer. The computer has a Core 2 Duo chip, video is ATI Radion Mobility 4500/5100 series, don't have info about the motherboard or power supply. The computer does run hot at times - I have cleaned out the vents, but not taken it apart to check the heat sink - but it isn't crashing when running hot during the daytime. I'm attaching the perfom report and the other report you requested. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Sevenforums,

Your reputation precedes you as you have been recommended to me by numerous people for your ability to help in technical issues. If anyone could provide insight to a new issue I've been experiencing, I'd be very grateful!

My computer has been experiencing an interesting problem lately, most simply that it will randomly shut down. It never seems to occur during heavy lifting programs or for overheating, as shutdowns will occur sometimes as short as ten minutes after initial booting in the morning with the highest recorded temp being 35C. No new software seems to be the culprit as it has been occurring over the course of a few weeks while steadily getting more frequent. One time the event log recorded that graphics card overheating caused the system to shut down. This could be the cause, but it was only recorded for one of the many shutdowns that have happened. I hesitate to suggest it could be the power supply, as the entire machine is less than a year old. Regardless, I'm attaching the suggested files from the stickied thread that include the system diagnostic report and the BSOD tool.

If anyone has any ideas as to what the culprit might be or if anyone is experiencing a similar problem, please let me know! Thank you in advance for your time.

Edit: I should probably add that I tried updating all possible drivers, cleaned the system, ran full system antivirus scans, and tried a backup/restore point from before the problem began.

Am getting random shutdowns (graceful) every 10 to 30 minutes with no
visible conflicts. "Shutdown on Error" box in system properties is unchecked
and event viewer shows no errors or warnings close to time of shutdown.

Any suggestions appreciated. Reg entry for "shutdown on error"? Easier way
to view shutdown events than event viewer?

TIA Capt David ONeill
 

A:Unexpected Graceful Shutdowns

There are a number of possibilities. You could have a bad connection or a faulty connector or cable. There is also a possibility of a hairline crack in a circuit trace on the motherboard. This can cause everything to work fine for a while, but when the area is under any stress or expands from temp changes, the crack would open and might be the cause of your problem.

Take a look at each capacitor on the mother board. Are any leaking? do any have bubbled up caps?, are any of the caps sitting at an angle. Use a magnifying glass to inspect every capacitor on your mobo. You can pinpoint the faulty capacitors since they will be "fatter" than the other ones. A normal capacitor should be a perfect cylinder; while a faulty one would have a bump in the middle of the cylinder and at the top.

Could be the power supply.

Hi techsupport people,

My computer is experiencing unexpected shutdowns, though only while the broadband is connected. It also brings pop-ups that look official microsoft from ?messenger service? warning of critical system errors, buffer overrun or virus infection, advising to immediately download from www dot fixwin32.com, or www dot regfixit.com, or www dot patchupdate.info, which then ask for credit card details to take a one-off payment and solve all probs.

Opening programmes and files is also much slower than usual and the computer won?t shut down completely, claiming ?Fax Monitor? is running.

I have Blue Yonder anti-virus, spyware and firewall running, and I?ve run vcleaner from Grisoft and Spybot which all come up clean.

Anyone had similar problems or (even better) ideas how to deal with it?

A:unexpected shutdowns, regfixit pop ups

Hi jakko and welcome to TSF.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there.
Make sure you close down EVERY open window and close ALL browser windows. The only thing that should be open is the HijackThis program.
Run a scan and save the log file.
Copy the text file (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+V) and paste it (Ctrl+C) back in this thread (do not attach it).
Do not fix any entries in HijackThis since they may be harmless.
Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

We'll then have a look and provide instructions to clean your system, if required.
I've also edited your post to remove the live links to those sites.

Hey there,

I've been getting frequent shutdowns, and it's driving me crazy! I'm sorry but I am not at all computer savvy...

I've hit F12 on start up and run diagnostics, all showing up fine. I've used various programs to check for viruses etc, done tune ups etc, but it still happens, randomly.

I've read in another post that the file from the minidump folder could help, but I can't seem to attach it as I don't have permission...?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:frequent unexpected shutdowns...

Can you give the specs of your computer.

Try running in Safe Mode, reboot your computer and continuously hit the F8 key, then select Safe Mode with Networking see if you still get the shutdowns.

Some things that cause shutdowns; Heat, Power Supply, RAM failing.

Heat - Blow out dust from inside the computer, make sure all fans are running.

Power Supply - Newer systems will have Voltage monitors in the BIOS, reboot and hit either the Delete, or F2 depending on your motherboard (you may see a screen during boot-up that states what key to press)

RAM - Download and burn to CD memtest86+, boot from CD and run Memtest on one stick of RAM at a time, if there are any errors you will need to replace RAM.

Hello all, I just recently downloaded this new Entertainment Hub program called XBMC for my Toshiba Laptop and it works great. It's a really cool program that lets me access all the media on my computer through a nice interface as if I was searching for movies on netflix or something, same with my music and pictures. Get more info about it here: http://xbmc.org/about/
Another cool feature is it lets me use my Android phone as the remote control! So right there and then, I fell in love.
 
UNTIL...... Just last night I was browsing through some of my movies while updating the library, nothing it shouldn't be able to handle, and then my computer flat out shuts down. And this shutdown was different, this is the first time my computer has shut down and the lights indicating that the computer is plugged in along with battery light went out. It was still plugged in so light should have remained on through the unexpected shut down, it always has in the past whenever I've had unexpected shutdowns.
But moving on, I tried unplugging and plugging the cord back in right away and light didn't come on  (I didn't try turning on yet). I then realized that the laptop was pretty damn hot so I let it cool down for a minute (Also blew the dust out from the inside a little bit). So after a few minutes, I plugged it back in, the lights came on, I booted it up and everything was fine. My problem is that it keeps doing this to me! I am starting to worry that maybe it's overheating ... Read more

A:Unexpected Shutdowns Using XBMC

Try blowing out the vents using canned air.
 
Also make sure the laptop is setting on a solid surface so the vents remain functional.
 
You can download a program like SIW to check your temperatures.
 
Caution should be taken when installing this program, like many others now days it has third party software which is optional but come with a check mark in the accept box.  Read all of the information before accepting third party software, this is a good practice with all downloads.
 
When you open SIW, scroll down the menu on the left to Sensors under Hardware and click on it.  When Sensors opens you will see an image similar to the one below.
 

 
Check your temperatures before and then after blowing out the dust.

Dear Anti-Malware Advisors,

My computer began to shutdown unexpectedly on about 22 March 2014. In the Event Viewer, there are now some 120 instances of this occurring since that date. Only twice has a blue screen occurred -- but this has scared me into deeper action. There was a specific change in my computer use about this time, where I started to watch movies/tv shows from two sites: www.tubeme.com & www.watchflicks.com. I found your site when researching to see if 'amazonmaws.com' was a site tied to malware, as it seemed to be popping up with frequency in the network activity of the Resource Monitor. I have worked with Norton to research with no luck, just uninstalling and re-installing the Norton 360 program. I have added the 'No-Script' adware blocker to my (Firefox) browser (now disabled to run your required logs). When the problem first appeared to be serious, I tried restoring the computer to a previous time but the problem continued (I probably did not go back far enough).

Before giving up and simply having a local Chilean tech. person re-install Windows and reformat my disk, can you help me? (I can't find other instances of the unexpected shutdown problem). Below is some info. about my system and the logs which your site asked to be run. I have also included the log from the 'ComboFix' program, which I ran following the 'Amazonmaws.com' malware thread.

System:
Asus Laptop, 64-bit
Intel Core i5-2450 M CPU @ 2.50GHz ... Read more

Main Symptom : The new PC stops responding after several hours (sometimes a few) of intensive work and then it shuts down.Sometimes it produces a blue screen with the "critical process dies" message and sometimes doesn't.The problem was appearing also after fresh install of 2 versions of windows 7.Now in official Win8 it appears also.All these 3 windows versions were working fine on other desktops.
Event viewer : One critical error appears every time : Event ID 41 , task 63 , kernel-power.
Connected Peripherals : 1)Keyboard, 2)Stylus pen, 3)Printer, 4)Wireless usb adapter,5)Stereo speakers,6)usb hub, 7) four external hard disc drives
What i personally tried so far and what the technician did :
1.Tried 3 versions of Windows to see if the problem had to do with them.The problem appeared in all versions.
2.Updated all drivers and MB and VGA drivers of course.No result.
3.Ran memtest and hard disc check.No problems.
4.Disabled one of the two audio drivers ( disabled nvidia audio and left enabled the realtek audio).No result.
5.Disabled sleep.No result
6.I personally checked for 3 hours how the PC responds with only mouse and keyboard connected and without heavy use. The PC didn't crash.The technician also did the same with his mouse and his keyboard for 10 hours but without heavy use also.The PC didn't crash. The technician returned my PC and said that he couldn't find any problem in his lab and that the problem must probably have to do with the peripherals.
So when th... Read more

I now have this problem with two laptops -- one, a Dell Inspiron 1000, the other at Toshiba A65-S126. I just put new Li-Ion batteries in both machines. After awhile, they both shut down -- this morning the Dell ran from about 7:20 to about 9:00 but shut down shortly thereafter. Blue screen of death, et cetera. The same thing happens with the Toshiba. The problem recurs with either machine even when they sit on a two-fan "cooling pad," fans running. Is there any software out there that can give me some kind of clue as to why this happens? Otherwise I have to trust some Best Buy Geek or someone to attempt to diagnose the problem.

Were the new batteries puchased from the original manufacturers?
