Got a bad program, shutting down computer before computer crashes... help

Q: Got a bad program, shutting down computer before computer crashes... help

I was using my microsoft office word program, and it all of a sudden went funky, like short circuiting out, then a blue screen popped up saying that the program I was using was bad and causing my computer to crash, so my computer was shutting down before it crashed. Then it shut down and came back up asking if I wanted to go back to a restored or previous thing, something like that, (a restore point), and it said it would probably turn off and on several times through out and could take several minutes, then the computer turned off and back on and the screen would not turn on... I have a dell all in one computer, so I do not have a separate tower from my monitor. What happened? How can I fix this? Any one out there have any ideas? I was not even on the internet at the time.

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.)

When you first turn it on, can you see the Dell logo?  If so, does it show the Windows logo after that?
Do you recall details of what the blue screen said?
 
If you can see the Dell logo, then try these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
You can press F12 to get to the boot menu in order to boot from the CD/DVD drive.

So I have either been experiencing three separate issues, or it is all one issue combined. I will explain them in the order that I noticed them and explain them as separate issues just for argument's sake. I have used computers all my life, but I am a noob at troubleshooting and the like. Just never got good at it, so my experience with fixing anything but the simplest issues on a computer is pretty much nil.
 
Here was the first issue I noticed. In the bottom right of my screen a pop up would occasionally appear whether I am browsing the web or not. There never seems to be a specific trigger as to why it appears. It always says the following verbatim excluding quotes at beginning and end: "You have an old version of (Insert program). This should be updated to version (Insert version number). Note: It is important to keep your software updated to avoid system problems, crashes and security threats." 
 
The first time I saw the pop up I knew it was suspect so I just hit the x on it because I couldn't find another way to close it. When you close it, the box scrolls down really slow. I have never clicked the links on this pop-up, but I have a feeling even clicking the x to close it is an issue. I ran my Avast, Malware Bytes, Adaware cleaner, and MRT. They all found issues, but the box still appears so none of them caught the issue I am seeing. I will attach an image of exactly what the box looks like. It pops up for all sorts of programs. The program is entirely i... Read more

Hello, Juicyrenik! Let's start with some important instructions:
Avoid installing or uninstalling programs during the malware removal process, because doing so can cause discrepancies between the information in different log files created by different programs at different times.
Do NOT run tools such as Combofix unless instructed by a BleepingComputer staff member. These tools can break your computer if used improperly, so you should only run them if you know what you are doing or if the person who told you to use Combofix knows what they're doing.
If you want to, you should back up all important documents and files to an external storage device or online file backup service. Malware infections--and attempts to fix them--can prevent your computer from booting up, making your files unaccessable; this means that backing up your files to an USB flash drive or to an online service like Dropbox before attempting to remove malware is a good idea.
Step 1: Rkill
 
Please download Rkill by Grinler, and save it to your desktop.
Run the program. If you are using Windows Vista or above, you should right click the program and select "Run as administrator".
A Black DOS box should appear; this indicates that the program is functioning.
The program will generate a log file on your desktop. Post the contents of that file in your next reply.
Do not restart your computer until the other steps are finished.
 
Step 2: Please download MiniToolBox by Farbar, and save it to your deskt... Read more

I am because i believe my computer is infected but i want some help on determining whether it is or not. I don't know if if it's a virus, worm, or anything in between. I have kapersky on computer but am not sure it is working quite right. I also have malwarebytes and have run a few scans with that, but that hasn't seemed to work either.

Every time I used Google Chrome after a few minutes my computer would freeze up and the I would get a non-stop beep. I uninstalled Chrome and tried using Firefox. This worked slightly better though Firefox would keep crashing and then after a while would exhibit the same behavior, worked for a couple minutes and then freeze/non-stop beep of death. I finally ran Hijackthis and took out everything that looked unfamiliar and ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Found two questionable items and one item Malware.Trace. Removed these things, but no luck, still after a couple minutes and then freeze / beep. At one point it even happened to me while I was trying to upated Anti-Malware.

Because you have a 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 continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 very 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. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

I've let my family use this computer for awhile, they started to complain it was "acting weird." When I jumped on to see, I noticed it was shutting down by itself and extremely slow. I got the computer to start up and tried to do a couple system restores. I then noticed then that the date/time on the computer was off. Saying some of the restore points were back in 2006, when I didn't even have this computer. After a couple failed attempts, I got the computer to restore. Its not randomly shutting off anymore but is still slower than it should be. I reseted the date and time, but I'm still worried something could be wrong.

Hi, so today I unplugged my computer while it was still running by accident. Now it wont start at all, no lights, no fans, nothing. I am concerned that it may be a problem with my power supply (maybe fried it or something). And no its not a problem with the cord (I tried a different one), its not a problem with the power switch (the one that you switch to either circle or line) because I tried it both ways. However recently my computers power button stopped working so my brother hooked up an old keyboard to my computer so to start it I will press a key on that keyboard and it will start up my computer, so I have to keyboards one to start the computer up and one to type. So in summary im not really sure what the problem is but im 90% sure it has something to do with either my "power keyboard" of my Power Supply so yeah. Any help will be apreciated

The hdd light should only light while the disk is being read or written to. It is normal for the hdd light to not be on all the time.

Since you say the system "partially" freezes during a memtest, I would like to understand more about that. Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing when it's partially frozen?

My computer is an XP home edition I believe, and it asked me to install some important updated. After doing so, it told me that I needed to restart or shut down my system in order for the updates to take place. When I tired doing so, It gets stuck. I get to a blue "log-off" screen, and it says 6 out of 14 updates are being installed... do not turn off your computer. But it stays like that for hours, and never updates, so I end up having to shut off my computer by hitting the power button. :/

I tried doing a system restore, but those updates have to be installed first. Before it even tries to restore, it deals with the updates. I'm not too sure what to do. Is there any way to bypass these updates, or get them installed some other way? I'd really apriciate the help. Thanks.
 

A:Updates for my computer are preventing me from shutting down my computer

Is this a new system? When you go to updates have you validated your copy of XP with Microsoft? Once you do that and make sure your settings are correct in your browser for downloads it does take time but not hours. Are you running firewalls, Zone Alarm etc., anything that would block the updates? Jazz

Hi Anamarija and welcome to TSF !

Does the problem also happen in safe mode ?

Unplug all your USB devices. Use a PS/2 mouse and keyboard for the time of the troubleshooting.

Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer. Tell us if it finds any errors on the hard drive. If you couldn't see the scan's results you'll find them in the event viewer under application in the latest winlogon entry (click on the title of the source column to sort them alphabetically).

Did the BSOD or the errors in the eventviewer mention any .exe, .dll or .sys file ?

We'll need the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump, problem is you may not be able to browse your drive to zip and attach them with your computer. Copy them to some floppy or usb drive using the command prompt : start => run => cmd. Type copy c:\windows\minidump\*.dmp x: x being the volume letter that corresponds to your usb or floppy drive. Then with another computer zip them and attach the .zip file to your next post using the manage attachments button.

Svchost.exe Extreme Memory Usage Crashes Computer When Computer Idle
I am currently experiencing a problem that started just a few days ago where the svchost.exe process keeps taking up memory on my computer even when the computer is idle and continues to grow to taking up to 99% of memory before it crashes/freezes the computer and it has to be restarted several times a day to clear the memory back down. However sometimes when I restart the computer within an hour or a couple of hours or sometimes less the memory will get exhausted again.

One special note is that since my Windows 7 OS was preinstalled on my HP computer, I do not have access to the original Windows DVD and the DVD drive on my computer is currently broken and is unable to be used.

I downloaded the TSG SysInfo tool and the FRST tool with the following results.

This afternoon, my computer began crashing whenever I try to open one of the more important files, like my computer or the control panel. Everything works correctly on safe mode, and I've tried driver verification, but there's upwards of 200 unregistered drivers, so I'm not entirely sure what to do. Are there any drivers I should look for to move away from the system32 folder? Or is there any other way to solve this?

Also, I haven't installed any new software recently.

I have been having a long running problem with my computer. It started out as a lack of internet access which turned out tI o be a bad virus. I fixed that problem by doing a complete reformat of my system. I thought that that would fix the problem and it did for a bit.

After a week or so I started having BSOD. I went to a computer shop and we went to work on the issue. The BSOD's were showing that there was an error with my sata connection. I replaced the cables. The problem kept happening, so I replaced the motherboard and hard drive with a complete reformat again. Then I continued to have the same issues which included crashes, disappearing icons, weird error messages (x86 errors) and once in a while a BSOD. The BSOD's all say there's still an error with the sata connection.

I then decided to replace the power supply and upgraded to an evga 1300 watt. I replaced my case as well to a bigger one. I even replaced the ram sticks That seemed to fix the problems for a while and the BSOD's became very rare, but after a lot of use the weird error messages became very common. I really can't use the computer any more. I'm typing this on my laptop.

The computer shop I go to say's this is probably a hardware issue. They can't seem to figure it out. I've had it in multiple times. This is a nightmare for a computer owner. I have replaced virtually all the parts and my computer is still utterly unusable. The only program I installed since the last reformat wa... Read more

Well, you SHOULDN'T have played with drivers...That is what's up.
Tried re-formatting AFTER doing those changes?
That computer shop owner though...I don't know what to say.
1) try reformatting to a version that is supported by the bios..(Check if it supports x64)...(fully ready)
2) post every error you get and attempt to find solution to each one. (Getting tired)
3) Can you mention WHEN did certain errors happen? before...after changing Processor and Graphic Card? (Getting worried)
4) Try lots of thing on the web. (hope time)
5) Revert back to the old virtual stuff. (shameful return)
6) take off the good pieces and attempt to use it on another computer or sell it. (Hopeless)

So I have recently bought a Samsung 850 Evo 120 GB ssd drive. My HP computer now has a 1TB hitachi hard drive and a ssd drive. The computer loads from the SSD drive. To try and maintain space, I have tried to download MS Office on the HDD. But when I install office, while in the middle of installing, my computer always crashes. This has happened on all three of my attempts to install office so far. Is there any reason why I should not be able to install office on the HDD or do I have to install it on the SSD?

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Computer crashes while installing MS Office on a Computer with 2 drive

It's always best to have your programs loaded onto the Windows drive, which in your case is the Samsung SSD.

It would be best if you could supply a screen shot of Disc Management making sure it covers all discs & the information. This will show if you have any other problems.

This tutorial shows how to do a screen shot.

Hey,

I'm connected on a dialup and this is what Im trying to get my computer to fully shutdown in the minutes i specify (ex:60minutes) I sometimes leave the computer on at night and don't want it to be still on when i come back...Something to make it automatically shutdown

I got a program that shuts down the computer automatically. And it works...My computer shuts down but in the end it gets stuck at "It is not safe to shutdown your computer" I don't want it to do this, because then someone needs to press the power button to fully shut it down.

Is there a way to make it so I don't come to this? Also..
When I start up I see my username and a password box. I don't have a password so I just press enter in the password box, is there a way to make it so it doesn't ask for my blank password everytime I turn it on?

I can't find where to play with these settings.
If anyone can help...Help pls!!!

Hello everyone, i recently have had having some computer problems which i have no clue why it?s happening. I have looked at many other posts yet could still not fix my problem. I?m new to computer hardware related stuff and to posting. I was hoping someone could help me solve this or give a general idea of what?s causing this to happen

Computer Specs

Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz
ATI RADEON HD 4670 (RV730 XT)(less than one month old)
2 Gigs of DDR2-SDRAM
DELL 0KP561 Motherboard

Problem

I recently started to game a lot more on my computer, and decided to get a new ATI Radeon HD 4670. My computer was working great for about two weeks and now whenever I go to load a game my computer restarts its self. It also restarts its self when I try to install any program. It stars up the game or program installer then it goes to a black screen leading to the restart. The games I play range from old games such as Diablo 2 to Bullet storm.I?m sure there is a chance that it?s a virus so I thought I should mention that I run BitDefender deep system scan, Spybot S&D, Avast, and Malewarebytes every day.

Temperatures

CPU is 48C idling (not sure of temp right before restart)
GPU is 42c idling (not sure of temp right before restart)

I have tried:
? Updating all drivers on my computer
? Ran prime 95 torture test for six hours with no errors
 

A:Computer will not run games or program installations due to computer restarting

Perhaps the power supply is not up to the task and is giving out.

My computer started crashing when I would try to run Norton AV . Then it started crashing when viewing pictures and videos. Took to repair shop and they could only find some spyware. I told that that everything was backed up so to just refomat. They also tested my ram and said it was fine in the testing but suggested changing it if the problem continued. It started crashing agian soon after getting it home. I replaced my ram and it still crashes. However yesterday I did get a successful virus scan.. everything looked fine with that. It is and Asus bourd, AMD 2200, Win XP with all the current windows updates. Any help would be appreciated.

PS
I had this problem a year ago and it seemed that replaceing a ram stick fixed it. When researching that someone suggested it could be the cache on the mother board. Could that be possible?

A:Computer crashes. Have reformatted and changed ram, still crashes

hey dude i got a thing u can do first of all start the computer in safe mode then run your antivirus program and scan
next if there are any viruses that have been found you can then remove them
once done reboot and try scaning again but in normal mode to see if the problem has been fixed

Hi all

When I turn my computer on, it shuts down without any warning. It usually happens within 10 minutes from when I boot my computer. If it doesn't happen within that 10 minutes, it doesn't shut down and i can use my computer for hours without any problems.

this problem happens nearly everyday many times a day. so i just keep rebooting until finally, it doesn't shut down.

Is the problem with my power supply?
I have a 450 watt antec

Here is my sys info:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
CPU: Athlon 64 3700+
Ram: 1 GB
254MB 6800 video card

Could it be a virus?
I have norton 2006 installed and i do a full system scan 3 times a week.

Personally, i dont think it is a virus because this morning... it shut down ,when i tried to restart it, the power turns on with an orange light, but the system still would not start. The virus can only work if my computer is already running right?

My computer (A Velocity Micro Prosonix running Vista) has been turning it self off recently, and specifically during games like WoW or Steam Games.

I've read that this may be a PSU issue, but I want to be sure before I go buy a new one.

I have recently reformatted my hard drive (about a week ago)

I also do not believe it is an issue of overheating as I have tried taking the side panel off, and dusting the fans (which i do regularly). Also it is seemingly random, It could last all day, or 5 minutes before it shuts off.

What do you guys think?

Hi. So I've been having a recurring problem for a few months. Every few weeks, my computer would just shut itself off. At first it was only during games where I'd be using a lot of system resources, but more recently (like, today) it's been doing it when I have nothing running. It gives no error message, it just turns off.

Additional weird information: If I turn it on within about 3 minutes after it shuts itself off, it'll start to boot up for about 5 seconds and then turn back off. Then I can boot it up the next time. During this boot up, it makes me go into the bios and set the memory frequency.

I'm really confused and just wanted to see if you guys have any ideas. Thanks.
 

A:Computer just shutting itself off..

It is entirely possible that your power supply is going out. If that is the case, then it is also a fire hazard, so be careful.

It started about two weeks ago. It would go to the screen saver, and then when it would go to sleep you couldn't wake it up using the mouse or keys. If you shut off the monitor and turned it back on, you'd get the bouncing icon that says you're monitor is alive, so it's not the monitor. Now it's gotten to the point where it's not even waiting to go to sleep. The computer will just cut off by itself. The lights are still on the computer but no one's home. It is running Windows XP.

Thanks.

Hello all:

Would like some expert opinion on my computer:

For the past 2 weeks, it has shut down unexpectedley about 6 or 7 times. 2 of those times when the computer is not in use (overnight). The other times while in the middle of a task. Oddly, it will not power up until i disconnect all of the peripherals. Once I do that, it starts and boots normally.

I have not made any changes either to harware or software during this time other than changing out my wireless keyboard/mouse. No viruses or spyware detected either. CPU and MB temps are constantly monitored and rarely above 105F.

Before I run out and buy a new power supply (my first guess) does anyone else have any ideas?

Appreciate your time and responses!

My laptop used to have heating problems before but no so often... like 5 hours after installing Windows 7 yesterday, my laptop had shut itself down 3 times already.
What could be causing this problem and how can I fix it?
Also, forgive me as I am new on the forums and I'm not sure if this is the right section for this thread.

Check event viewer for any entries at the time the shutdowns occured also check scheduled tasks, also you could try installing some temperature monitoring software to keep an eye on the internals - something like speccy or cpu-z

I have opened it up and made sure everything was tight and in its place and also cleaned the fans which had dust on them. It still would not come on then after 20mins it did . All fans were running when it came on but made no noise. I downloaded SpeedFan to see the temps but am very unsure on how to read it.

Ok, not sure what is going on with my computer. It will be running fine could be for 10 min or 5 hours and then it will just shut down and start to reboot, sometimes it will reboot fine other times it will take about 6-12 times to reboot and still does not actually start up correctly.
I have tried to reboot in safe mode and sometimes it works good and others times it will keep shutting down too. The only way it seems to work fine with no problems is if I disconnect my DSL link then it will not shut down at all.
I have tried DSS, ScanDisk, ComboFix, Tuneup Utilities 2008, AVG, Spybot, Adaware & currently have CA Internet Security Suite on my computer for my virus software.
If someone could please help it would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a heating trouble, open the case and put a fan to blow air in to it, if its more stable then you may need to change your heat sink.

Reinstalling windows would be the second option. But if you have active virus protection then it should not need to be done.

Also make sure that you have latest drivers for all your products, even if you got the CD with the product its best to update drivers from internet.

I'm not sure whats really going on with my computer. For the last 2 weeks my computer has been shutting off during random times, it's happened when i was on the internet, playing games & watching movies. I thought it might be the power supply so i bought a new one today and installed it properly but it just happened again. Please help me out. Thanks guys.

For about the past month my computer (Toshiba Satellite laptop) has just randomly shut down. At first it would be only when I'd play games and it would just shut down, but now it has been shutting down for no reason at random times. Some days it will do it 5 or 6 times, other times it'll work fine for a few days and then I'll be browsing the internet or typing a message and it just craps out on me. I know this is a pretty broad problem, but where do I start in solving it?

Thanks
Chuck

Hey, hope someone a lil more tech savvy than myself can help me...

Been having some issues with my laptop recently which culminated with me having to replace both motherboard (integrated graphics card died!) and then hard drive!! Not having much luck really!
Since my brother replaced both of these the computer has been running fine; surfing the net, watching movies, piddling around on excell for work etc..
however, I today re-installed Civilisation 4, which ran fine before I had to replace things. NOW though, it boots up.. and then 5 seconds later it shuts the computer down instantly! No logging off etc, the computer simply turns off!!
Needless to say, this has rather narked me!
If anyone can help I would be eternally grateful!!

My computer is shutting down then having problems restarting. It helps if I unplug it at the wall, wait a minute or so then try again. It has been happening for a month or so but has become a lot more frequent.
