Windows doesn't login properly in normal mode but fine in safe mode

Q: Windows doesn't login properly in normal mode but fine in safe mode

Hi,

I got win 7 home premium 64 bit on an i3 laptop. My system worked fine until today morning.

The problem is this;
When I boot the system in normal mode, I get to the part where I need to enter my password to login. Once i do that, all I get is a black screen with the mouse pointer that moves about normally. I've waited for the normal desktop environment to appear (ie icons and taskbar) but this doesn't happen (btw, my desktop background color is always black).
The system boots perfectly in safe mode.

Yesterday was the first time in over a year I used utorrent. I used to get the BSOD when I used to use it. I couldn't rectify the problem and hence had stopped using it. It worked fine yesterday though.

Any idea whats happening and how I could fix the problem?

Preferred Solution: Windows doesn't login properly in normal mode but fine in safe mode

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.)

After upgrading to SP2 about a month ago so I could take finals on my computer at school, i noticed that my computer wouldn't boot up in safe mode (i just get a blank dark screen and i can hear the computer doing something but giving it a reasonable amount of time it doesn't progress from that screen). It didn't concern me because normal mode was working and i was able to take my tests. But now I want to get to the bottom of this. I delayed getting sp2 because i had a feeling it would mess up my computer. (i've had other problems too with visual skins but i was able to resolve those).If it matters, i ran a scan of my system with spyware doctor and it said i had a trojan.dialer and needed to boot in safemode to get rid of it. When I tried, it wouldn't load. Oh, btw, any way to get rid of that trojan.dialer without using safemode?

Hello everyone.  I am trying to fix my mom's computer but have so far been unable.  The laptop is running but it is incredibly slow.  When I first got on it a bunch of pop ops took over the screen.  The computer would randomly go to other sites on it's own.  It would go to a search sight called "clarosearch".  Worst of all, it's incredibly slow.  For example, from the desktop, it take about 45 seconds for the IE window to open when I click on the icon.  It takes about that long to navigate to a page and so fourth. I downloaded and ran a registry cleaner, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, and ad-aware.  These found a bunch of problems and cleaned some up, I guess.  The pop ups are gond and so is the strange search site, but the computer is still running just as slow.  It's a paperweight.  Getting another computer isn't really an option right now as my mom is unemployed and we're actually trying to get her resume online but we can't even do that right now with the way the laptop is acting.  I downloaded hijackthis and ran a scan.  Here is the log.    Oh, and as the subject says, the computer runs fast and fine in safe mode.  Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed as I'm not sure what to provide.  Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide.  Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 6:26:57 PM, on 4/26/2014Pl...

Now, it's happened again without me doing a Windows Update and I cannot get into safe mode.

Hi,

About two months ago my HP Pavilion 6654y Win7, 8GB, etc.,
started running extremely slowly in Normal Mode. It takes several minutes to respond to mouse clicks, etc.
Basically, it just hangs. But it runs "ok" for a minute or two while still rebooting.

In Safe mode it runs just fine.
I've tried everything I can think of to narrow down the problem, to no avail,
including numerous scans such as AVG, Malwarebytes, Trend Micro Housecall.
Installed UnHackMe to check for rootkits. Even got Reimage and ran it several times.

I've used CCleaner to clean things up, and also to clear out Startup programs
and disable most scheduled tasks, as follows,

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made ... Read more

My speedtest.net performance is 30 Mbps download, and between 0.3 and 2.0 Mbps upload. If I start in safe mode with netorking, I get download and upload speeds of 25-30, my contracted speeds. Obviously, something loading in the full mode interferes with upload speed. I have tried restarting in safe mode with all of the items checked in the services and programs tabs in msconfig, and still get excellent up and download speeds. How can I figure out what is interfering with my upload speed in normal mode, but not in safe mode?

A:Poor upload speed in normal mode, fine in safe mode

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.

My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time.

I'm not sure what causes my BSOD. The errors range from BAD_POOL_HEADER to ntfs.sys to drivers-something.

I am currently running Safe Mode with Networking and things seem stable.

I ran Anti-malware (nothing found), VIPRErescuescanner (nothing), fakereanfix (didn't help), ComboFix (probably made things worse).

Are my drivers up to date? No, probably not, but at this point, I'm scared to change anything else.
Is my windows 7 up to date? No updates installed since Jan 2012, I'm too scared to update anything lest I cause more BSODs.

Have you performed a System Restore recently?
 
Download your version of Avast, but don't install it yet.

Once you have uninstalled the old version, install the version you downloaded.

A:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

I started having said problem during virus removal.
I had removed multiple virus via malware, SAS, aSquare, combofix, and, I could not connect to any websites.
Via my wireless connection, windows said my signal strength was good and it was connected to the wireless network.
I tried pinging different websites like yahoo.com, google.com, etc and all my requests timed out.

So I decided to trouble shoot.
Booting into safe mode w/ networking worked fine. I was able to ping and connect to websites via Internet Explorer.
I ran SpybotS&D, and it removed a win32.agent and some sort of malware that had firewall in the name... forgot exactly what it was, and I don't have the log on hand.
Anyways, after this removal I tried again to ping website like yahoo.com, google.com, etc, and the ping worked fine.
However, I still could not connect to any websites via Internet Explorer. I tried reinstalling IE, but its the same story.
During this whole process, I have been able to use Internet Explorer succesfully only in safe mode.

Any ideas? I doubt it is a virus directly causing my problems. It's had a thorough cleaning. Maybe some left over wreckage?
I doubt its a firewall issue. CA's personal firewall is installed on the machine. I know CA antivirus is running in safe mode, I'm not so sure if the firewall does or not. I'm assuming it does.
I don't know where to even start on this. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,You should not browse in Safe Mode because your security programs do not function in safe mode which means that more malware finds its way onto your computer.This issue is related to the issue you have posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/240716/sdra64exe-uacinitdll-fakealert-vundo/ Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team.

2 days ago my computer randomly froze up when I had a few chrome windows open and a few other applications. The mouse can move around but nothing on the screen is responsive. I figured it was a one time thing and forced shut down and rebooted. It again froze up about 3 minutes later and now every time I use it it freezes from within a few minutes of logging in to up to an hour. Even if I just log in and don't touch anything it will freeze at some point in time. Last night I used it for 6 hours and thought everything was fixed but when I woke up it was again frozen. It also seems to be lagging a little when opening new tabs and applications which it never did. It works fine in safe mode and stayed on for over 24 hours with no problems.

Hello everyone. I have a Compaq SR1954NX Desktop computer that I recently reformatted and installed Windows XP Pro SP3 on. After installing some games and applications, a few days later I shut the computer off for the night. Upon the next morning my USB Mouse, a Creative Fatal1ty 1010, stopped working on it. If I unplugged it and plugged it in a different USB port, it would say "Found device, Creative Fatal1ty Mouse, Your Device is now ready to use." However it still would not do anything. However, upon entering safe mode, it works fine.

I reformatted after this, as I thought it was my mistake, and had only installed one or two small games. However, it just happened again.

Can anyone here help me with this? Thanks in advance.

Hi
I have Thinkpad T43, with windows XP professional.

Since few days whenever i launched my ATI catalyst control center I would get BSOD and laptop will boot automatically and then everything would be fine.

Then while browsing my wife downloaded some media player exe, and since then my IE was redirecting to unknown sites (xalab etc) not to mention various ad pop-ups. One of the online video sites gave a message that I have TROJ/Rustok-N. (Also I would like to mention since couple of months my System Restore was not working although everything else was working fine)

I ran spybot, malawarebytes, trojanremover and removed whatever was reported. But the problem persisted, so I renewed my Norton Internet Security (actually got Norton 360), ran scans but it couldnt find anything.

Then I booted in safe mode and ran all these again, last thing I remember trojanremover prompted to remove something like sv~.exe and i did, when i restarted the system in normal mode I got BSOD and laptop rebooted, I disabled automatic restart on failure but it keeps on doing that.

I then went to Access IBM and restored by configuration which brings back the system files to previous state (the most latest point available was 07/2006)
I still got the BSOD while booting into normal mode, but safe mode was working fine.

I then went into safe mode and disabled couple of services on startup, then my laptop booted fine in normal mode, I found that now windows xp was reset to SP2, so i ran windows update w... Read more

Hi,

I'm sorry to post as usually I can solve such problems but I'm a a loss.

1) My PC started up this morning and I can only boot into safemode. I turned on non gui boot and the loading list is the same as for same mode as it is for normal boot.
2) I grabbed the windows disk and tried the repair option. Nothing wsas detected and when I tried to restore to a previous point no restore points were available - very odd!
3) I enabled the sames services as safe mode and rebooted and again no luck. I also disabled all startup items.

I'm left with a possible driver issue but I remember in XP you used to be able to load them one by one - can't find that anymore....

Normally when I get this far down I give up and re-install, it's just that this PC has so much on it I know it's a few working days of setting it up again and further hours installing stuff as I'll miss things. The machine runs SQL server, Vsiaul Studio, full Adobe suite, SolidWorks, CorelDraw, sheduled tasks - the list goes on and on. Note when I click on Windows Update nothing happens, I've looked at the log and it looks like a windows media player updated happened 8 days ago but the machine has been re-booted since then.

It works in SafeMode so ther must be a solution but I'm out of my depth and wondered if anyone had any ideas

AutoRuns does not need to be installed. It is a stand-alone executable and will run in Safemode.

Hi,
I am using Compaq Pressario P4 PC with ?Windows XP Home edition? Operating System installed on it. The issue that I am facing is as follows:
- One day, audio was not working with PC. My hard disk drive was close to full, so, I thought of uninstalling couple of unnecessary programs. While doing so, I stopped uninstallation in middle by pressing back button, then, uninstallation process hanged. After that I also tried rollback of soundMAX digital audio driver and again I selected back button and this also hanged. Please note that I had inserted the restore CD in upper CD drive to search the audio driver file. Then, I started the computer through hard reset. After that first it went in restore mode, exited that, Windows Logo came and after that there was just a blinking cursor at top left corner and nothing would happen after that.
- Then I called one PC technician for data recovery from my hard drive. He took my hardrive out of the PC and connected it via USB adaptor to my laptop. The hard drive could be detected and we started data copying from hard drive to laptop. However after every 3-4 minutes, hard drive used to hang and then we had to take out the hard drive cable, again reconnect. This we repeated multiple times to recover the important data from my hard drive.
- After that, hard drive was re-inserted in the PC. Since, after restart PC was not booting up (Windows Logo came and after that there was just a blinking cursor at top left corner ... Read more

A:PC doesn't boot in normal mode even after OS reinstallation,though,boots in safe mode

Yes, the hard drive may have become faulty and unreliable and therfore will soon fail completely. For confirmation, test it with the drive maker's diagnostic software for DOS.
The links are here: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools

In Safe Mode, no third-party drivers are loaded. In Normal Mode, all those extra drivers being accessed on an already flakey drive is causing it to crash.

Lately I have been having problems with my computer.
It turns itself off (it doesn't say "Windows is shutting down..", it just dies.) when I am using it. It turns off after a few hours, sometimes after a few minutes. Then I would have to wait a few minutes until I can turn it on. Because it would not turn on no matter how much you pressed the power button, so the only thing to do was to leave it for a while, and then it world turn on.

But now when you turn on the computer, it turns off seconds after you log in, and then the blue screen of death appears. The next time I tried to turn it on, I got the option to boot in safe mode, and it doesn't turn off. I left it on for a whole day and it didn't turn off.

My computer is a Dell Dimension 5150, running Windows XP Sp2 (I think). I will post more details soon, because the option for running in safe mode does not come up when I turn the computer on. I don't know how to boot up in safe mode because I am a computernoob .
I am typing this on my other computer if you're wondering.
Any help please?
Thanks.

A:XP can not login neither in normal mode nor in safe mode

It has to do with the userinit.exe file or registry entry.

Start by looking at this -- do you have an XP CD?

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;892893

Unfortunately it may not be that exact trojan, so the instructions there carried out literally may not solve the problem.

If you have an XP CD you can create a Windows Boot CD >>

http://www.ubcd4win.com/

This will allow you, using the included registry editor to edit the value directly in the registry.

See attachment. This is a screenshot of UBCD4wins registry editor and the CORRECT userinit value that should be there.

You must ALSO verifify that the file userinit.exe exists in the system32 directory.

try safe mode, boots fine.

so i try a system restore, still nothing when i try to boot up normally.

After a windows update patch about 3-4 weeks ago I started getting a weird error message saying I wasn't connected to the internet when the router is working for phones, blu rays, etc. Letting IE run its own 'fix' would say something about it not having a valid ip address and it reset the lan card and that would sometimes fix it or sometimes not (and I would need to reboot and try again). I did a system restore to a point before the windows update which fixed the issue for a couple days until the update pushed again and after that I get bsod screens on boot with the iqrl_not_less_or_equal more than 50% of boot attempts but no longer have the inexplicable unconnection to the internet. I've got a factory computer which I've not altered or opened in the 4-5 years I've had it. It boots fine in safe mode every time so far.

Please help, I'm way over my head trying to figure this out on my own and 4 hours of conversations with Microsoft tech support convinced me they should really just be called support plan sales reps.

HP Pavilion Elite m9150f Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion Elite m9150f Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

I have bitdefender internet security 2012 installed and no overclocking or customizing.
I am a newbie when it comes to PCs and anything therein.
March 1 I updated vista, bitdefender, and downloaded kies for samsung galaxy s 2. i was on the pc for a couple of hours and went to sleep with it off. I turned it on the next day and it took 30 minutes for it to even get to the desktop. Although I could do ctrl+alt+delete and that would show as well as the task bar. When i open the task bar, i found that the processors were not active and barley any ram was being used. Which i thought to be weird for a startup sequence.

I restarted in safe mode and it came up like normal in 2 minutes and i rolled back a few days with system recovery which didn't help. I also uninstalled kies program and that didn't make a difference.
I am just very confused and frustrated at this problem any help would be appreciated.

A:strange start-up in normal but fine in safe mode.

I know you said you uninstalled Kies but, run msconfig.exe and look in the Services and Startup tabs to see if it's still there and enabled.

While there, you could also set up to do a clean boot to see if any other program might be causing the problem.

In the services, checkmark the box for hiding the Microsoft apps and then disable the rest.

In the Startup, disable everything.

Reboot and see if you get the same problem.

Hi,
 
I could use some help. My Toshiba Satellite laptop is having issues after the normal startup with slowing down dramatically after it goes to the desktop. It will basically freeze with commands taking between 5-50 seconds to be recognized and sometimes it just freezes. When I boot into Safe Mode, I am running everything smoothly. I could really use some help figuring out whats going on.

A:Everything runs very slow in normal, but fine in Safe Mode.

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
 
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

I have also looked at the processes on msconfig in safe mode and applied them in normal but this wasn't successful. I also read it could be a problem with the IPSEC Services, which I have now disabled but the problem persists.

A:BSOD on normal boot, safe mode works fine

Since this isn't occurring in Safe Mode I would suggest running a Clean Boot to see if this is a problem with a Service or a startup item.  You will know if it is a Service after you reboot in step 3b, if it is a service this problem will not reoccur in normal mode.

RELEVANCY SCORE 108.4

Helo, this is my first thread so im not good in explaning stuff...

I was on my computer operating normaly the last few days... i shut my laptop down normaly... but the next day when i turned on my pc and tried to login it says "incorrect password..etc....." i even tried to change my password at the microsoft website(because i synced it there) but still it says incorect password please go to microsoft to change your password.... ( i also tried using picture password)

Good thing i have an alternate Local account on my laptop so i tried to login... but strangely... it says " please use smartcard logon" = what??.... i dont have that sort of thing....... and how on earth can i use a card on my laptop (its not a touch screen either, i just use the mouse for dragging lines for picture password)......

Ive been having a hard time trying to fix this..... when i open my laptop in safe mode, WOW! my password worked there.....

since then ive been using safe mode as my alternate to use my laptop... but it has too many restrictions (no sound is one of them).......

Please help me... i can explain my situation further if you would gladly help.....
I have a Compaq Presario CQ43 That has been converted to win 8.1...... (its an old laptop i know..)

ANY FEEDBACK USEFULL WILL BE AKNOWLEDGED

A:Cant Login in win8, but can login safe mode just fine.

Can you get into Advanced Options as shown in link below? From there you can try Automatic Repair or System Restore.How To Boot Into Windows 8.1 Safe Mode [Guide] | Redmond Pie
