XP Total Corruption?

Q: XP Total Corruption?

Hello everyone!

I am here today with yet another XP problem, but I am sad to say this is not your average run of the mill registry corruption.

Background:
During an architectural rendering - my apartment's power went out - immediately shutting off my computer. Upon resetting the circuit breaker and rebooting, I was mortified to discover my computer would not boot at all. (I think it is important to note prior to the power outage - my computer was freezing periodically, {besides other applications, utorrent would always make it freeze.})

After reboot, when it comes to the screen that gives you several boot options (safe mode, last known good... etc.) any option I click won't work and it simply freezes until I force shut down.

I tried repairing windows XP but during the installation it says something in the nature of "cannot find original windows installation, please contact sys..."

I successfully loaded up a BartPE bootable windows - but the OS could not detect my hard drives (the drives are just empty.)

*I suspect my hard drives died

I have windows installed on a data drive, and I have another 2 500gb hitachi drives raided together. (Not the raid setup that mirrors - the one that screws my career over)

What can I do to recover my data? Is there any external enclosure that I can get or some way of repairing windows through BartPE even though it doesnt read c: drive? Midterm presentations are around the corner and I cannot afford to pay for data recovery (1 tb. = $2000.00)

Preferred Solution: XP Total Corruption?

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

A: XP Total Corruption?

You have a Raid 0 setup and likely had a Bios crash so you need someone to set your Bios up for Raid again and then it might actually just boot up OK (provided you haven't messed things up too much).

I would suggest a shop.

Up untill today my PC has been working a-ok. I first encountered the problem when i was palying a online mmo. After a couple of hours playing i entered a world and some graphical corruption occured where green pixels seem to appear in bands where the lighter colours where. After a short while the pc locked up,with loads of green pixels appearing and the last split second of sound caught in a loop.Nothing worked,mouse keyboard,even the lights for numlock,scroll lock and capslock did not respond to the keys being pressed.it has happened almost every time i tried a game since then.

I rebooted my pc and it was fine untill i was loging into the pc,where more of the same graphical corruption occured,when i logged in after a short while the pc froze on my desktop and hr monitor lost signal.after a few seconds it came back on an a message appeqred in the corner by the toolbar saying Kernel driver 258.96 had failed but had been recovered, his happened a few times. Windows works perfect in safe mode and i updated the graphics card drivers to try and resolve this but it did not work,i am posting this off my iPod so pardon the bad spelling,will upload a picture or video tomorrow wih more info if needed.

I unstalled Comodo Time Machine after I realized I had made a mistake in setting it up, and then when I tried to re-install it (there was no option to go back and rectify my mistake), it told me the software was "already installed on my computer" and would not re-install.
I used Revo Uninstaller to remove the program, then CCcleaner to tidy up, and also went thorough my registry with CCleaner and manually checking for breadcrumbs and stuff CCleaner tends to miss.

BTW, specs:
I am running XP Professional Edition, service pack 3.
I use Rising Anti-Virus (never had a problem).
I've also tried Glary Utilities (desperate) to no avail.
CTM still thinks it is installed on my computer. I am sure there are little lurking elements somewhere where I can't find them with my limited skills. When I startup, there is a CTM splash screen detailing how it is "creating a restore point," although no other related files to this can be found, as far as my digging has shown me. Additionally, I have tried re-downloading the program and reinstalling, to no avail. Still tells me the program is already installed.

I would like to get rid of the splash screen, and remove all remaining parts of the program. This make be as simply as deleting the logo file from my system, but since I like to run a clean machine I want to make sure to scrub the rest of the traces, if there are any. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello,I recently encountered what I believe to be a spyware/trojan problem on my laptop which is running Windows XP. The problem started about a week ago when a fake security alert came across my desktop saying "Attention! System has encontered a potentional problem..." I ran Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes Anti-Maleware (I already had these programs installed). These both removed a number of problems. I also have McAfee anti-virus software running. I also ran a scan with this. As of now the fake desktop alerts are gone, however, when I run a Google search and click on a result, I am redirected to some random website.

Sale1 is the basic information of a sale invoice number and who items are sold to

Sale2 is the details and shows qty , item, price, and GST charged if any (some people or organizations are tax exempt so it becomes zero.

I've got my form and subform to run correctly

I've got my report to print all items correctly but I can't total the value

the line value for each item is a textbox

Re: Dell XPS, 2 gb ram, 160 gb hd, Intel Pentium 4A 3200 mz chip, running XP Pro SP2. I am having a series of problem that may or may not be related and would appreciate any help on these you can give.

First, The computer will not respond to keyboard commands in the boot source menu. But, the keyboard works fine once windows is running. I tried a USB board and the standard keyboard port; got the same result with both.

Second, the update download notification shield, microsoft puts in on the task bar while downloading, never gets beyond 9%. Auto update is turned on and my fire wall, sygate, has never gotten in the way before.

Third, the internet connection service that can be turned on or off in the Services window, is not there, neither is there a network icon in the Network Connections window. But, my satellite connection to hughes.net is running fine and my Belkin router is sending strong signals to my router.

Fourth, System Restore will not restore to a prior configuration whether it is one saved 20 minutes before or ten days earlier.

I'm just looking for a second "fresh pair of eyes" to comment or suggest a fix for a dilemma I'm having with my WIN XP PRO system. I'm working with a mS MVP on another board, but it's going stale and I'd thought I toss this over here and see if anybody has a suggestion. Approximately 3 weeks ago, when i started Internet Explorer this error message came up: In the above example, substitute sys restore, help center, sys info, management console etc To cut to the chase, as I tried to solve this error, it turns out several of the windows components return this error also even in safe mode, thus ruling out using system restore. sys restore is dead, sys info is dead, mmc, helpctr etc.. However, the computer works with my Corel Draw! program, the internet works with mozilla or Firefox. Things I've done is uninstalled add ons in Internet Explorer, dumped adobe, corel draw, ran hijackthis and run virus scans.. Here's a funny thing: Windows hot fix and security updates come on down the line and install no problem. But when you try to run sys restore you get that "* has encountered a prob and needs to close..." And of course Dr Watson has the same prob If there is an expert who wants to see the total history, here's the link:http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=23623 Nothing against Walter, just thought I'd ask if there is a fresh pair of eyes who might have a different opinion thanks all!!

Wow! They've done a whole pile more than I could! Since the mshtml error seems to be common with all events - I'd suggest reinstalling SP2 to "repair" IE6.

I am new to this forum and have a new computer and a new W7 pro 64bit
When I initially turn on computer the screen displays an illustrated information title of the gigabyte mother board,, then goes to a black screen with white lettering that flashes on briefly and appears to list the components of the system.
Why I believe there could be some corruption is that a flight sim game Rise of Flight is refusing to load. When i go to the start it tells me -"connection to master server was temporaily lost. check internet connections" All other sites are working.This change in Windows display occurred about the same time access to the game was denied which is why I I feel some problem has arisen within W7

A:possible corruption of W7?

Do you initially see something like this:



Then (or now) something like this:



?

The 1st is Gigabytes Splash screen. The 2nd is the BIOS screen. Usually, if you disable the splash screen, you will see the BIOS loading screen (which I prefer).

For me it was either/or, are you saying you now see one, and then the other? I won't be able to test it, but it's possible the BIOS is taking longer to load now and so the splash screen ends before the BIOS screen (which loads "behind " it) is finished. Does the boot take longer now? Perhaps the BIOS is hanging while your PC searched for a device? You could have a device (HDD, Optical drive) issue.

If not, this may just be a coincidence and you just need to troubleshoot your game issue. I don't think the OS itself is "corrupted". Have a look here and see if you don't find some help:

You may find your answer or an update to correct this. Looks like you must have a connection to server to play.

so where to start, well first of all i need to know how to repair a corrupted version of windows 7. I have two hard drives atm one with windows 7 working and one with the corrupted version on it. The main issue here is when my friend was fixing my computer he didnt format the hard drive with win 7 on it properly and i now have about 500mb's if im lucky on that hard drive. So id like to know how do i go about fixing the other hard drive with the corrupted windows 7 on it and no i cant reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows on it since he lost the disk briefly after doing so and it may not have been all that legal.

In the end of it all id like to get windows 10, how i figured about doing this was to get my old hard drive working with win 7 on it, boot up using that then install win 10 on it since it would have enough space to get the files which my current one cant.

If anyone else knows a better way of eventually getting windows 10 as my os without all this trouble that would amazing, i just want a hd with space on it

uhh i dont know what other information to give, i'm fairly certain its the windows files that are corrupted since i can still run my old games from it and not the hard drive.

tl;dr win 7 corrupted, got new hd with win 7, didnt format correctly, ****, want win 10 but not enough hd space, help get meh win 10 somehow by fixing corrupted hd or black magic

I all of a sudden started getting messages about my DRM being corrupt when trying to use Rhapsody music subscription software. The software directed me to a microsoft web siite to upgrade windows components (see below). I then tried upgrading the Windows components from Microsoft web site, but the upgrade button is grayed out - don't know if this means no update available or means invalid windows. Working with their support, I was finally told my windows valid license key is corrupt (as in illegal copy - Not!). They washed their hands of me and said I had to contact Dell because they installed the OS. I do not really think it is a license key issue, but I am still trying to resolve the DRM problem.

Hey guys i need a bit of help. I started having problems the other day I was trying to watch a video and it kepp saying I needed to install Flash Player. This was strange since I always had Flash installed. I tried to uninstall and then reinstall, yet I kept getting same message. I decieded to check my windows version as a friend to me to make sure I was running the correct flash for my version of Windows. Upon checking it shows I am running Windows 9. This is impossible as I bought the computer a month or so ago and it only had windows 7 on it.......Need help, Thanks

So heres the rap,

i have used the same install of windows XP for around 2-3 years without a format. ive updated all pc components in that time but kept the same install. of course i used all the relative driver cleaners before hand to reduce any clashes. I always kept the system clean and virus/ spyware free. never missed a beat until...

A few days ago i left my computer on all day whilst at work only to come home to a moniter screen which displayed 'no signal detected' so decided to reset it. then windows loading screen came on and near the end of the loading phase BSOD. i decided to boot in every other mode all followed with BSOD. i have never come across this before in my experience. I am very desperate to recover a few files within my documents including uni work and photos amounst other things <1gb in total id say.

to rule out hardware failure i tried booting it with another computer but BSOD still follows. it must be a software issue. or perhaps the hard drive it self?

i also threw the HDD in an external hard drive box and tried to load it as a mass storage device it does show up however i cant access it because it says it needs to be formatted. also windows displays the drive as empty instead of partially full which it should be.

any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
im sure this comes up alot but it does teach a valuable lesson to back up!

thanks,

kim
 

A:HDD corruption

Hello Kimbo
I would suggest that you d/l the tools from the website of the company that made your drive.
Most major drive manufacturers offer such tools.
Some are great... and highly recommended.
Not all are fully compatible with hardware from other makers.
SeaTools may be useful across makers, but I cannot say that it may be used with all.
That is why I suggest going to the maker of your drive.
(When I changed drives, I found that the WD utility was better for my new WD drive, and the Toshiba utility better for the old drive).
Again, YMMV.

Run both S.M.A.R.T. and Long tests, especially the Long.
This will let you know if the drive is bad, and (hopefully) whether anything can be recovered.

I am a mac user and I own a site that has downloads available for purchase. They are zip files with psd's in them. I have two windows 7 clients who can download the entire file and unzip it and everything show up except the psd files.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light as to why this is happening.

Thanks!

A:zip corruption

Welcome Paigeypar to the windows 7 forums.

There is the possibility that the .psd files that you created are not compatible with the intel version of photoshop.
or, your zip program is only zipping up the fork files and not the data files. Not being a mac person, I do remember from my mac days that the mac uses two files to make a pair, one being the resource fork and one being the data fork. Most pc's ignore the resource fork and only use the data fork.

Hope this helps

User complained about Computer slowdowns and crashes when left alone.
I turned off startup programs and power options to always on with no screensaver.

They said they were using malwarebytes antimalware, so I did a quickscan to reporduce the results of the crash to get more info.

1hr 30min later the scan was in the Huiristics portion of the scan.

The user then used the bathroom and turned on the heater, turning on the waterpump and hitting the main breaker killing power to the computer.

Im starting to think Im over my head, and am taking too long to finish.
Any help is appreciated.

A:possible OS corruption

You are headed in the right direction
0x24 indictes the NTFS file system and chkdsk /r should help.

I dont suppose that you can get to a command prompt?

As long as the bios is set to boot from the cd
I would try a few more times.
I have seen it take 6-7 tries before it will "hook up"

If the computer supports booting from a usb device that would be good.
If not you may need to hook it to your laptop to run chkdsk.

I'm having massive corruption issues running windows 7 ult 64. It regularly fails to boot and gives random bsod messages (Memory Managment, dll errors etc.).
I recently RMA'd the HD after it showed errors on the HD diagnostic utility (even after a complete wipe ) I also RMA'd the motherboard but it didn't change anything. At this point I have my eye on the wireless card (Rosewill RNX-G300EX PCI card). My thought is that (either through driver or hw fault) its causing some corruption in downloaded files, namely system updates. I also regularly get errors trying to open zip and executable files.

Hey everyone, I've got an issue with an old school laptop running XP Pro x86 SP3. It's a Dell (I know...) Latitude E5400.

It used to run perfectly fine, but one day I was removing some of the useless outdated programs my school had installed on it, and everything went FUBAR.

Booting the laptop doesn't take much time, but after clicking on my username, and getting my desktop wallpaper shown, things stop loading. I see my wallpaper, but icons don't load up until about five minutes later, with the taskbar. The icons don't have graphics either, until much later.

When everything finally loads, I can't do a single task without it freezing for another five minutes. Clicking on the start button, everything freezes. Right clicking on anything, it freezes. I'm able to navigate around for about 20 seconds smoothly, and then it becomes frozen. Even the clock stops at the minute it freezes.

I've got no startup items, I've only got 28 processes running after boot, I've ran a diskcheck, Microsoft installer cleanup utility, Advanced System Care Pro, CCleaner, Registry Mechanic, Malwarebytes scan, defrag , and disabled all visual themes. I also have over half of my harddrive space free, and I've tried deleting and creating a new user account.

Booting into safe mode is a temporary fix.

So can you guys help me out?

Hi:
I was having a problem with an update to Windows 7 - specifically my system would not download Explorer 8 updates (even though I never use this browser, I was tired of getting notices to update it). I followed the problem solving steps suggested by Windows, which eventually had me download a problem solving tool, which produced a log. I then copied the log and sent it to Windows, as directed. Here is the bottom line on that log, according to a Windows rep:

"From the case log, I found the following information.
Summary:
Seconds executed: 1044
Found 8 errors
CBS MUM Corrupt Total count: 4
CBS Catalog Corrupt Total count: 4
This message means this issue is caused by corrupted system files." END QUOTE

Because my laptop was purchased with Windows Vista, and upgraded to Windows 7 (via manufacturer's disk), the rep says I need to go back to Vista and then once again upgrade to Windows 7. He says I can do this with my Recovery Disk that I created when I purchased the computer. He also says that because my Windows 7 OS is corrupted, it will only get worse as time goes on and I need to do this.

OK -- I"m very upset at the thought of doing this. When I use the Recovery disk to go back to Vista, this means I will lose everything on my computer, right? (yes, I am backed up, but still....)

Do I really need to do this when I don't even use Explorer 8?
Is there another way to do this without going back to Vista? Or without erasing my hard drive?

A:Corruption in Windows 7 OS - What Now?

Hi Chayden,

Instead of installing Vista its better to run a clean install in windows 7. Just back-up your data. And install windows 7 by formatting your C-drive will resolve your issue.

Note: Its just a waste of time if you install vista and than upgrade to windows 7.

It might be while upgrading to windows 7, it would not removed all the existing system file. Or it would be not compatible with any existing program or application installed in Vista. Or any application got corrupted while upgrading to windows 7.

Try a fresh and clean install of windows 7. It would resolve your issue.

Hope it helps.

Hi

i'm reading TeraByte Unlimited ? View topic - W8 Corruption.

there is





Based on a number of reports, a quick search of the Microsoft forums, and testing, it's clear that Win8's new gimmick, called Fast Startup (hibernate on shutdown), is causing disk corruption. This occurs when partitions visible to Win8 are modified after shutdown (doesn't affect reboot). It appears that Windows does not clear its cache and remount file systems after resuming from hibernation. This "feature" is enabled in Win8 by default. We highly recommend you disable this new feature to prevent corruption to your partitions. Fast Startup can be disabled using BootIt BM 1.10 or higher via properties of the Win8 partition in Partition Work. You can also enable or disable this option in Win8:



the fix is
1) Open Control Panel.
2) Choose Hardware and Sound -> Power Options
3) Click on "Choose what the power button does" on left.
4) Click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable".
5) Remove the check mark from the "Turn on fast startup (recommended)" under Shutdown settings.

thanks

Recently after a power outage, I noticed that my Quick Launch bar was missing. After restoring it, every item was out of order.

I was trying to figure out why that was, and one possibility jumped out at me, registry error.

I could be wrong, but I'd like to fix my registry now, before the heavy computing season starts (school)..

I've spent the last 2 hours looking up how to fix the registry in Windows XP pro. I searched through google and microsoft's support site, but the only instruction I've found was (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545), and I'm not sure that applies to my case. There were tons of ads on using registry fixers, cleaners, etc..

I've searched these forums extensively and I don't plan to use a registry cleaner/fixer program (since those do more bad than good in the long run?), but is there a way to rebuild the entire registry so as to fix any corruption that may be latent?

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP 3 and I can burn a slipstream install cd w/ SP3, but was hoping to not have to reinstall all my games (their patches included).

Our systems play games like Fallout 3, Crysis, Borderlands flawlessly and we have no issues at all no matter how long we play, however when we do things as simple as view pictures, rename files or watch movies on unpredictable occasions we get odd lines that appear on the desktop application, and any band boxes we make on the desktop get even more corrupted.

i seem to have this really disturbing problem with certain files and folders. When i have collection of stuff grouped together, with multiple levels of folders, all of a sudden, when i come back after a few weeks or so to view the content, whole folders appear corrupted. and from what i have seen, this problem spreads and corrupts other folders as well.

What happens is :
1. the folder containing the documents -the tooltip says its empty, but when you go in, there is a file and the file size is listed beneath it

2. the files cannot be opened, especially a problem with pdfs

3. when you right click on the files, all the normal options do not appear, but a shortened version with much fewer options (none of which work ) appear.

4. those folders cannot be manipulated - cannot be moved, cut, copied, deleted nothing - not even with Unlocker.

Hi,

I'm new here but I've been registered a while, but anyway...

I've had this problem for a while but never did anything about it until recently.

My laptop runs Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, with all the latest updates and SP2. As a sort of "hobby" I thought about learning how to do a bit of application development so I downloaded Microsoft Visual Basic Express 2008, Microsoft Visual C# Express 2008 and Microsoft Visual C++ Express 2008 to try out the products and choose which one was best.

I installed them the first time and there was a slight error with the downloader, so I tried again and it worked fine, but these applications would not run (i.e. they would flash up the splash screen very quickly and then disappear)

So I removed them by doing an uninstall from the original EXEs I downloaded and I thought nothing more about it. Until I discovered it had done something to my .NET Framework. I have re-installed, uninstalled the .NET framework since a few times but nothing has worked.

I have (more recently), used the .NET framework cleanup tool which ran without any errors and I am in the process of starting the whole installation of .NET all over again.

Any help/pointers on this one, am I doing the right thing?

Thanks.
