Windows system file seems to have crashed

Q: Windows system file seems to have crashed


2' time this week that this occur

My system is always running. When I came back to work this morning,, some of the running software where closed and other not responding. When I tried to close Excel, no question to save was asked and it closed all the others software running on my PC leaving only the Windows colored flag on the screen.

I was not able to run any applications, nor to closed my PC other way than pressing the power button.

- I did a sfc /scannow. All normal
- I check with malwharebyte: 1 Malwhare removed
- Kaspersky did not detect any virus
- Corsair S.M.A.R.T. status seems normal.

- What should I look for?
- I suspect my SSD drive, but don't know how to validate this suspicion
- Could it be a fluctuation on the power supply? If so, any tool to detect it
- Could it be a memory leek? One of the software that I use may use a lot of memory for its history. Could it leak and corrupt data in the Windows files system?

This is an intermittent problem. I had similar problem few years ago and now it seems to reappear.

Any help appreciated


Preferred Solution: Windows system file seems to have crashed

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows system file seems to have crashed

to confirm if it is your SSD drive, run memtest86 for 8 passes (ideal number for accurate info) and post back with results

I have first been getting these problems when I downloaded Comodo IS Pro. Apparently when I approached them for help,the technician did not reply to me after telling me to install.

Thus I did a system restore and the computer could load in normal mode(however the screen,etc loaded slow like hell.)

Yesterday, I downloaded comodo firewall and something familiar appeared

From Problem Reports and solution, these are the service that crashed:

4X svchost.exe
1X lsm.exe
1X sandboxie.exe
1X wininit.exe

But guard32.dll from comodo is the module causing it according to Problem Reports and Solution, but anyone knows why and how to solve it?

A:Svchost crashed, windows start up crashed, local session manager crashed

Have you tried uninstalling Commodo to see if it is causing the problem?

So I have a new computer that I need to transfer files to. I have a complete file system backup. The old computer had Office 2013 Student edition. Is there anyway I can get a copy of 2013 Student and somehow pull the activation code or files from the old computers file system backup?

A:Computer crashed. Have backup of complete file system. Any way to recover Office

I have a complete file system backup.

Is this a back-up - in that you copied over the fiies and folders you wanted to protect - or is it clone of the drive ?  If it's a clone you should just be able to reinstate it on the new computer. If it is a file copy back-up then it will not contain the keys you are looking for as they are stored in the registry to the best of my knowledge.
Can you not just re-install Office 2013 from whatever media you installed it before, it will have the authentication key on or with it ?  Unlike Windows you can install MS Office on as many computers as you have a licence for. If it is a single use licence you can move it from one computer to another so long as it is uninstalled from the previous one.

SPDT.SYS used by daemon tools/alcohol and KeyMagic. Both.

Your computer was up for 2 plus days so it isnt happening frequently, and removing those two items may fix it.
Ken J

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

My Lenovo T60 crashed and was not able to be repaired. I do not know what caused my laptop to crash, but according to the PC Tech, the hard drive was reformatted. To be honest, I am here in the Philippines and did not bring my recovery disks with me & I am not so sure about the technical ability of the PC Tech.

That being said, he installed Windows XP Professional on my laptop and partitioned my hard drive. I have a 250 GB Western Digital HD. Before my laptop crashed, the drive was NOT partitioned. After the installation, I now have two drives, C, with 40 GB and D, with about 200 GB.

I lost a lot of photos and music, and other important documents. I decided to try to recover some of these files and used Recuva. The good news is that a lot of missing documents can be recovered. While listing the files and looking at them, I noticed that I had several System Restore points that I can recover.

My question is, can I use the most recent System Restore point that I recover and use that to reinstall all the missing software? I had MS Office 2007 Professional, MS Visio 2007, MS Project 2007, and other software that I do not have the installation disks with me.

From what I have read, System Restore will reinstall the system (registry, files, and software only) and not the My Documents folder.

If this can work, where do I put the system restore file? If need be, I can delete the new partition and resize the C partition, restore, and then repartition the hard drive afterwards.

A:Can I use a recovered System Restore point file to restore missing sw crashed laptop?

Since you already lost everything, try the System restore but first backup everything Recuva found onto a USB key. If your version Windows was not the same what the tech installed, it might not work. Also, he should have first ask you what to do with your files before formatting.
Otherwise you will have to wait till you can re-install everything.

Hi. I have a Toshiba laptop (Portege R835-P56X). I was running Windows 8 upgraded from Win 7. I successfully upgraded to Windows 8.1 but was having some problems with the Wifi. I followed the instructions to reset the TCP/IP Autotuning. When I restarted, Windows failed to start, and all repair & recovery options failed, so I cannot even access System Restore.

Windows attempts Automatic Repair then shows options to "Restart" or "Advanced Options" but I am unable to click either one--the keyboard and keypad are both completely non-responsive.

Unfortunately, I do not even have a Win 8 disk to use for a repair. I do have a disk image from just before I upgraded to Win 8.1. The problem is: how to access it?

I did a legitimate upgrade from Windows 7 and have a license for Win 8 with Media Center, but unfortunately cannot locate my original email, so Windows won't send me a Windows 8 DVD.

I'm tempted to simply restore to factory settings and Windows 7, which I'm running on my other PC without all these hellish problems. I hate Windows 8 anyway.

Any ideas? Anyone?

A:Windows 8.1 Upgrade crashed system entirely, repeat BSODs

I do have a disk image from just before I upgraded to Win 8.1. The problem is: how to access it?

Did you also "create a rescue disk" during that 8.0 system imaging process as directed at the end of the process? If so, you can boot to that and use it to do a "recover from a previously created system image" option. However, if you did not, you mat be able to create a "recovery drive" in 8.1 and try to use it to recover your 8.0 image but I have found that process to be very selective when trying to use a recovery drive made on one version of Windows and trying to restore a different or earlier system image. However, since I have never specifically tried it under your current circumstances, I cannot say conclusively if it will work or not.

Good luck, hope this helps a bit.

Hello all. I'm currently talking to you from Safe Mode in Windows 7 32 bit.

I've been running Windows 7 for quite some time now and I haven't run across any hiccups like with the previous versions of Windows... until now.
I recently bought a copy of Star Craft 2 from Gamestop. Doing this allows you to be in the beta program... so I figured "Oh, good stuff".

I tried to patch the program and I received an error during the patch process. To make a long story short, Blizzard informed me that I should run the Windows 7 memory diagnostic tool to make sure that my RAM wasn't at fault, using the extended test. I figured "Ok, no problem".

I ran the tool, selected "Save work and restart the system".

The tool loads up and starts to run with 1 pass with a "basic" check. I realized after about 10 minutes into the check that I could hit F10 and change the options. I hit F10, changed the test to Extended and hit continue. The screen refreshed VERY slowly with the updated changes, except the progress went from 10% complete to look like "_%" for every spot that could have a % at it.

I thought that was odd, so I hit the Exit button.

The system rebooted.

The system started to hang at the BIOS POST screen a little longer that it usually does... normally it only stays there about 2-3 seconds... it now stays there for around 10-15 seconds.

The Windows 7 logo starts to load and then freezes half way through loading graphic. The system han... Read more

I think my operating system crashed.

Last evening I had Opera browser open with a few tabs open as well. I started watching a video in one of the open tabs and everything froze, with sound still going.

Crtl alt del did not work. Had power off.

When I powered up it said cannot find operating system. I powered off then powered on. I was able then to get to the desktop. I tried the browser. Things were working, then the screen went to like a zig zag crazy screen.

I was able to get to the desktop a couple more times, but got zig zag screen again.

This morning I tried powering on a few times. Each time it looked like it would go to desktop, but ended up only showing what I think is the background color of the desktop. No icons,nothing.

Is my operating system crashed?
How do I get this fixed?
I do not have window vista CDs.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello everyone

I have this big problem with my HP Pavilion a730n Desktop. After doing the System Restore setting the restore point on February 14, the monitor turned off and the computer just freezes. I unplugged the PC a couple of times and plugged again but it just stays the same, it freezes!!!

Hope you can help me! Don't know what to do!!!

Thanks in advance


A:HP Pavilion Desktop a730n with Windows XP crashed after System Restore

How long did you leave the computer unplugged? If you just unplugged and plugged in right away your not giving the hardware time to reset. Unplug the computer and leave it sit for a bought 10 minutes. That should be enough time for the system to reset. I suspect it may be a hardware lock. Not ruling out software as yet.

Hi, I love this site and you guys have helped me so much, so first of all, thank you!

Now the bad news.... I got the WIndows Vista Repair virus about a month ago on my Acer PC. At first, it ran all of those warning messages and then it shut down the computer and reloaded as what appeared to be a completely wiped computer. The only icon on the desktop was the Windows Vista Repair. I tried to find programs by searching for a few minutes before trying to shut down (which the virus had also made me incapable of doing), and resorting to popping out the battery to shut it down. I restarted in safe mode with networking and tried to get on this site, but even in safe mode my browser was auto-redirecting me to sales sites. By following instructions for removal on this site, and downloading programs onto a flash drive from a different computer, I was able to get my computer in working order again, although it would still, at times, randomly shut down my internet browser (and the process and amount of time I spent getting it just to that state of operation was ridiculous, much worse than any virus I've EVER had...I can explain what all happened and the steps I took if necessary). A couple of weeks later, I left my computer on while I went to a friend's house for the night, and when I came back in the morning I couldn't get it to unfreeze. I shut it down and for the next two days, every time I tried to turn it on it would just run on a loop, booting up part of the way bu... Read more

I am having a problem trying to open a CDR file that I think crashed. This is the 2nd time it has happened with different files.

The file still shows up in my external drive but has an icon next to it which it did not have before (a green pencil, like the icon in my program files for CorelDraw X3). When I click on it, it opens up in corel but as a blank page. Did I loose this file or can I some how recover it?

Unless you have a saved copy you're probably dead in the water.... or if
you have another photo editing program that will open a CDR file you could try that
as a last resort.

I need to ask you why you saved it as a CDR file when you have other options such
as .tiff or even .jpg and what format did you initially have when you started work on it?
Your answers won't make any difference to your issue but they will satisfy my curiosity.

hi all,

my win 7 pc crapped out. its not the disk. i have an image made on acronis. i bought a new win 10 pc. whats the easiest way to get that win 7 image with all my applications onto the new win 10 desktop? i want to get rid of windows 10. i would like my image working on new pc (new hardware) as i will not have to reinstall and configure everything again.

i tried swapping the old pc disk into the new pc, but the new pc would not boot: says invalid disk. could it have something to do with the MBR or that UEFI thing?

A:System crashed, how to restore Windows7 system image into new desktop

you're going to be in a world of pain if you want to do this but have no access to the old computer. In this situation, a SYSPREP with the generalize function is run in Windows 7 to prepare it for migration to new hardware.

You can try cold turkey like you did, you may have to switch to AHCI drivers from IDE or IDE to AHCI depending on what you had before to get it to boot. The boot sector may be a problem too. If you used standard MBR in the past then check your BIOS on the new PC to see what adjustment you can make.

I'm trying to do an automatic installation of Windows 7, I've captured  the Windows image and I wanted to create an unattended file using the Windows System Image Manager. But if i try to load the image, I receive the following error:

This application requires version 6.3.9600.16384 of the Windows ADK. Install this version to correct the problem

After acquiring the image I did the driver injection through Dism GUI, I imported the image through Windows System Image Manager to create the answer file, and everything was OK. However, I had to edit the image again to add a folder and two files that would
have been useful to launch a post installation script. I used DISM GUI again. Once I saved the image I tried to import it again with the Windows System Image Manager, but in fact I receive the error mentioned above.

Now I did not understand what I did by saving the wim file last time, because before it was possible to read it and after the last modification no.

In a Laptop I have version 6.3.9600.17029 of AIK and on a Workstation is present the version is 6.1.7600. 16385 but in both cases the error I receive is always the same ....

We noticed that when we use large files from a remotely located file system, it does not get cached by the Windows file caching feature.
Does Windows 7, and/or other Windows OS versions, don't cache files (into memory) located on remote data file servers as when the files are locally read from a local hard disk..?

Went through the same thing with my older computer (HP Pavilion 502n/WinXP Home). Nearly brand new when it was given to me by a friend, three years ago, who forgot to give the Windows recovery disk. Then in mid August, it pulled a similar stunt as yours.

At First it was blackscreen with "Windows not shutdown completely and options to go into "safemode" or normally. That lasted a couple of times when it suddenly would not complete the boot up and got a similar message as you did.

Took it to a computer tech, who found a BIOS glitch and thought he had fixed it.

Then three weeks later, in early September, it did it again. Would not boot up completely several times. Then it finally did....after going online for a while, it started crashing and restarting every 20 minutes. Eventually it finally did boot up to show something else on a blue screen with a list of checking files systems on C: with this:

1 of your disks need to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk chk at any time.
CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)
CHKDSK verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)
Deleting index entry CAUGNJQR in ...and on and on until it reached 94% and crashed.

another boot and it was CMOS Checksum and so on.
At fourth bootup, it finally reached screen with F keys and I hit them to go into Safemode and HP system recovery (non destructive file mode).

After five hours, it completed that and Crashed. I finally boxed it up for a couple of days to take back to the... Read more

I was working with my "backup" computer.......Win XP SP2 and ran an AVG scan.......anti-rootkits. I removed 5, and one was fixed. Later on I shut down the computer when a storm came through, and about an hour ago powered it back up. Windows will NOT boot up. It continued to recycle, and I am unable to get into SAFE mode, nor will it boot with the last known good settings. I tried "debugging mode", "disable automatic restart on system failure", and "safe mode with networking" (out of desperation), but nothing's working. I do not have a recovery disc, but I do have the OS re-installation disc that came with the computer, plus the SP2 disc I got from Microsoft.What's my next step? Thanks.

First off, thanks to everyone ahead of time for helping me!

Alright, so I just moved to a new house and hooked my computer up to the internet for the first time on the new IP. I was on for just a few minutes when I got a "Send error report" saying that "the system has recovered from a serious error". When I go to click anything, I get the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!! Now it happens everytime within a couple of minutes when I load my desktop. Now I don't really think it has anything to do with a different IP or anything like that, but I've been messing around with other forums for days now and still haven't been able to fix this problem so I decided to jump in the forums and post my own thread and just hope I can get this fixed.

A:My system crashed, please help!

Hopefully the computer wasn't dropped when you moved from house to house. Also hopefully the computer was packed up right and didn't get banged around inside the truck or whatsover.

One thing you can do is to check the HDD for any errors. Go to the manufacturer's website of the hard-drive and download the latest diagnostics utility. Then put the program onto a CD, boot the computer to the CD, and test HDD for any errors. If there are any errors, then it's time to backup your files ASAP.

Another thing you can do is to perform a windows repair on your computer and hopefully windows repair will fix the problem.

Also try reseating computer parts. Reseat the videocard, cpu, and memory sticks and make sure they are on the motherboard tight.

You can also perform a check disk repair. Go into my computer and right click on the C: drive. Then choose properties and then click on the tools menu. Click on "check now" on the error-checking section and then make sure the two boxes are checked. Click on start and reboot your computer and let check repair do it's thing.

- I can not reach to the welcome screen
- Safe mood as normal mood , which mean it still restart
- I lost the CD's of system

A:My XP.system have been crashed

From the Advanced Options Menu choose Disable automatic restart on system failure instead of Safe Mode.
Post the lines under the Technical Information section, the Stop code and any file names it mentions.

Do you know which updates you were installing?
If you were installing the KB977165 update, and have the version before MS added code to check for the presence of a rootkit, that could be the cause. Installing the update on an infected system causes blue screens or restarts.

Check the Windows partition for this folder:
If present, check in the spuninst subfolder for the spuninst.txt file

The spuninst.txt file contains the commands that the Recovery Console would use to uninstall the update. It's a list of Delete and Copy commands to delete the new files, and restore the old version. The last command makes a copy of the spuninst.txt file named spuninst.tag so that Windows Update will know it's been removed.

You can do each command from Ubuntu if you don't have an XP CD.
If you have access to a Vista/Win 7 DVD or can download one of the Vista/Win 7 Recovery Environment CDs, I have a batch file that can uninstall the update as well.

My windows vista crashed for no apparent reason and it will continuously direct me to a black screen with an option to continue normally or launch startup repair.

Normal startup doesn't work, and the repair gives me the message "cannot repair this computer automatically". I send the info to microsoft and it gave me no options to fix it

And although I have attempted the repair several times already, for some reason it says number if repair attempted:1

Root cause found:
Startup Repair has tried several times but can still not determine the cause of the problem."

Root cause found:
Unknown bugcheck: Bugcheck 7f. Parameters = 0x0 0x0 0x0 0x0.

Repair action: system restore
Result completed successfully

Note this is the results from 2 separate occations

I have tried System restore to an older date but it did not work

I have tried safe mode, did a dskchk with /f but didn't do anything

Unfortunately I have made no backup

Also, the windows came with the computer so I don't have any disks or anything

A:System crashed please help!!

I am no expert,but the same thing happened to me with my laptop in October. I called my computer manufacturer's tech service and we went through most of the F8 options and none of them worked except for the options under recovery manager: I had a choice of full factory recovery or recovery with automatic data backup and I chose recovery with automatic data backup. Because I chose recovery with backup,I retained all of my files. I don't know if your computer has that option or not. But,if all else fells you may be able to do that.

There are probably other things you can do first. Other people with more knowledge than me might have other suggestions,I'm sure.

Good Luck!

Early today my computer was perfect, then came the disater, I was informed that I needed to install SP1 (vista service pack 1). I did so, and towards the end of the process, it crashed my system, I mean a total, complete crash. There is no windows, no prompt, no curser, just a black screen. No matter how many times I turn my compter on and off, the same black screen is looking back at me. The microsoft website is not helping, they want to charge me to fix a problem caused by their system (dont get me wrong, happy to pay for service). Is there any way I can restore my system without inserting the start up disks again.

Added: While waiting for a reply I have decided that I would have to start over. However, my computer will not even read the discs to start over, there is just nothing. Just black. (3 years ago, I had to start over, it was simple,I just put the manufacturer disks in my disk drive, started the computer, and it wiped everything and started again). Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.

A:SP1 just crashed my system


are you using a PC or laptop? When you turn the PC off then back on, do you see the POST screen, i.e. the manufacturer's logo and/or a series of checks denoted by white text on a black screen?

It could be that the PC isn't fully turning off and you're going straight back to the screen you're seeing. If that's the case, remove the power lead from the PC after turning off (or remove the laptop battery), wait 10 seconds then reconnect and power on.

Hello I recently installed suse on my computer and I also have windows xp installed on a seperate partition. Since I am an idiot I was on windows xp and I decided to delete the suse partition trough windows. After I deleted the suse partition, I restarted windows and like ususal it said Grub loading, but I got an error because obviously suse is no longer there, so I put in the win xp disc and tried to repair windows. I thought if I deleted the 956 mb swap partition it would correct the system from trying to load Grub, but it actually made things worse and now I cannot even load the windows xp disc. Now when I try to load the xp disc it says inspecting system configuration then the screen goes blank.........I dont know what to do! Help!

When i load the correct boot cd it states i do not have enough ram memory, can i delete the top 2 xps? I just want to get back to the corrupted version and give the original boot cd another try.

I was trying to free up some space and accidentally deleted tons of system files and a bunch of necessary things I have no idea what to do or which system files I deleted. I tried starting it up and it came up with a screen saying Power Saving Mode and then switched to a screen coming up with: SYNTAX in the middle and on the bottom it said: Press TAB to enter post.... and Press DEL to enter setup. I tried the rescue disk but it wouldn't load the CD Drive. Then I went into the BIOS and changed it so it would boot the CD drive first. Nothing happened. WQhenever i turn it on the SYNTAX and Power Saving Mode scxreens just cycle over and over continuously.

I desperately need help. I hope you can help me someway

Hey guys,

I have some problems with my computer, please give me some feedback if you have any idea.

I have downloaded the Oracle 9i database installation files on my machine, on my D drive. Each of these files had more than 500M. After that, I have tried to access the folder where I downloaded those files, but every time when I clicked on any of those files, the Win Explorer started to use my processor 100% (for the next 5, 10 and maybe more minutes) and practically I didn't have any chance to start any other application or to stop the Win Explorer process from the Task Manager. The resources were used 98% by the System process and the only solution that I had was to restart the computer.

That has happened every time when I tried to access one of those files. I tried to access first of all other files from other folders and it worked fine.

Any ideas?

Excel crashed while a file was open. The file is still on the hard drive with a 728KB size (which is correct) and a time stamp that matches the last time it was saved before the crash. But the file does not open. When in Excel , File/Open/filename produces an empty screen, no rows or columns, nothing, but the title bar says "Microsoft Excel - filename". No error message is received at all.

Any thoughts on how to restore use of this file?

Please help me....

A:Computer crashed, part of WKS file gone

Go to where you store your doc. If there is a file that starts with ~$ And then part of the file name double click on this file and it might be the one your looking for if not, them most likely it is gone.

This is what is most important about saving a doc. while you work on it. It might take a little more time to save a doc. while working on it but it takes far less time than redoing the whole doc. As a matter of fact I save and back up ALL of my doc. not only on the hard drive but on a zip files also AS I work on it.

I know you don't want to hear that now that it may be to late but it might save someone else that terriable feeling your now having.

Sorry for the bad news, have a better day.

Ok....Everyone has the right to say "I told ya so!" I have read the posts about the freaking SP2 monstor. I tried to take all the necessary precautions such as getting rid of any spyware and uninstalling my adaware and spybot programs before downloading SP2. Now this is what happened...I restarted after downloading and my system does four things...1. displays the microsoft XP load page for 6 seconds. 2. Blank screen for 16 seconds. 3. HP logo on blue screen for 4 to 6 seconds. 4. Blank screen for 6 seconds amd then loops back to the microsoft XP load page. I have contacted MSN support about this and was told that I have to call their SP2 support that has a different number and hours that they work. So I am on my daughters computer posting this dire request for help while waiting the time to pass for the freaking peeps at MSN to get their sorry butts to work. And to thing that regular support suggested that I call HP for help at $35.00 an hour! Told MSN that they would get the bill and for that I was promptly hung up on! Ok Mr. Bill Gates; I got a bone to pick with you!

I used combo fix to scan my system so I could list a log. I asked for help with my hijack this log and didn't get any help.

I ran combo fix and had to reboot my computer. It rebooted to a blue screen that says it halted and there are system parts missing. I am on another computer because I can't get past it. I was so close to getting it all cleaned up and now nothing.

Help please. I can plug in the computer and tell you exactly what it says if I need too.

i had a computer freeze today , i rebooted and it wouldnt get past post , just went to a black screen with no operating system start up , i rebooted again and tried to get into safe mode , but it stalls at a point where it says;
multi(O)diskrdisk..etc etc Sys32drivers\Mup.sys

rebooted again with different BIOS setting and it goes through post , lists USB devices , PCI devices , IRQ settings and then stops after the last line where it says ACPI controller.

i went back in to BIOS and checked all boot priority settings , i tried to reinstall the operating system , but it goes through the windows installation dialogue , then stalls at the point where it says " Setup is starting wondows " and just hangs

i thought the HDD was faulty , so installed a brand new HDD , tried to install windows on that but get the same problem ., it just hangs and wont start windows.

any suggestions ,it is obviously a hardware issue , it cant be the HDD as i replaced it with a new one............... ???
