Error Codes popping up constantly every 3-5 mins

Q: Error Codes popping up constantly every 3-5 mins

Hello,
I have a HP Pavilion m6-1045dx notebook with Windows 7 Home 64-bit SP 1, Premium, 8gb Ram, Intel HD graphics 4000, Intel Core i5-3210M.

The attached error codes keep showing up and they show up every 3-5 minutes. I recently just got my laptop back from a repair to the motherboard. They replaced the HDD and re-installed Windows 7 Home Premium and most of my needed drivers. I am also attaching the itinerary work notes of the repair for the computer.

NOTE: the error codes are not consistent after continuous pop ups, though the location of the application error seems to be the same. I realized that the errors are not the same all the time.

What is the cause and how do I fix this?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This sounds like a driver problem. Can you check to see if Windows is fully up to date and check Device Manager for any next to your hardware.

I can't tell if this is a hardware problem or network problem or..what..

Anyways, let me first start off saying, I purchased some new ram for my computer earlier this month, installed it fine, used it for a couple weeks before I started bsoding a lot.. eventually it was so bad and I wasn't sure what to do.. I ended up reformatting with the ram still in, (did this yesterday). I removed the ram today after my computer started crashing.. The new ram was 2gigs, a pair 1g each.. my old ram, that I have now put back in the computer is 1gig ..bleh
I checked my event viewer and saw this:
Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0013D305AA90. The following error occurred:
The operation was canceled by the user. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Followed Immediately by this:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000ea (0x867d9bb0, 0x86d22a88, 0x86e7e2c0, 0x00000001). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini011813-01.dmp.
(This error has appeared alot in my event viewer to..followed by other errors such as :The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied. )

Both of these happened at practically the exact same time, and the time of.. my most recent crash. I was just watching a video online and chatting on msn. Not much...

Alright, I've been fighting this fight for three months at least. I've been getting different BDOD messages, most of them MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, but few are BAD_POOL_HEADER and some others. I can't figure out what the problem is. I have run chkdsk at least 10 times, all finding nothing. The BSODs are quite random, and occasionally come in pairs of two, in which there is a blue screen, I restart, then there is another, then everything is fine for the next hour. I do not suspect a virus. I have scanned with Malwarebytes, MSE, and even used a trial of AVG before I suspected it was causing the BSODs. I've grown tired of this problem, and am now turning to the forums. Is there any additional information needed to answer my question?

Hello. I'm new to theese forums and not too experienced with technical issues, so please be understanding.

General info on the problem
First things first, my problems started a week ago or so. Random BSOD's, crashes (on different programs) and freezes.

What I tried
First, I suspected a software issue (drivers/programs in conflict ~ it was a 3-4 month old OS), so I've reinstalled my windows, but that didn't fix my problems, so now I'd go for a hardware problem.

I have tried running a stress test on my CPU, and record the temperatures with CoreTemp. The results were fine, it went up to 55 Celsius, but then it stopped. I haven't experienced any freezes/crashes/bsod's during the stress test, which lead me to the conclusion my CPU is not overheating (Correct me if I am wrong.).

I recently just bought a new 750ti off newegg. installed it and managed to get a couple hours of no mans sky into it before everything started crashing.. Im still unsure if the graphic card has anything to do with the crashes. ive been playing assassins creed syndicate and manage to get 20 mins into it and it crashes. the crashes tend to start with the computer freezing with a sound loop for about 3 seconds then the fans speed up to max and everything crashes. it has happened a couple times while surfing the internet or just mid shutdown. Ive reinstalled windows 3 times, reinstalled drivers more times than i can count and have tested the hdd. Im at my last rope and really dont want to have to take it into a shop.

RELEVANCY SCORE 53.6

I don't know what may have started this, but kaspersky kept telling me that svchost.exe was performing a suspicious action trying to inject something into winlogon.exe. It asked me to allow/deny, I denied, and it kept repeating. Eventually I ran a scan and detected that "smarthook.dll" contained a trojan. I used kaspersky to remove it, and downloaded a clean copy of the .dll and put it in my system32 folder.

Now I am receiving the classic:

svchost.exe:
"The instruction at "0x7588bba5" referenced memory at "0xfede1500". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"

Only this pops up every 5 seconds about 6 times and then stops, and randomly will continue this pattern.

I have attached 2 logs, one is current <taken today> the other I just happen to log a few days ago for the hell of it (before I noticed any errors). I don't know if.. comparing will help I just want to provide all info I have.

~Thanks!

[edit]
**Additional: Just ran AVG Anti-Rootkit Beta and it detected system32/userinit.exe as a "Hidden Application"

extra info: sometimes when the svchost error pops up, my taskbar at the bottom changes to the old grey style and not the windows xp style.

Also: included a screenshot (edited for size).

A:svchost constantly popping up

nobody responding, so I'm trying to help myself. A couple things I've noticed
1) in my list of services, there is a service named "Asctcgwto" set to disabled. This brings up nothing in google.
2) After turning on my computer, I type "at" in the console and it responds with "The service has not been started." I use the at command fairly often.
3) I type "net localgroup" and it tells me that the workstation service has not been started. So I start it.... I Don't know why it isn't already started, (it's set as "Automatic" but was stopped).

The problem is getting worse because from the moment I click login, it brings up multiple svchost.exe errors and takes an exceptionally longer amount of time to fully log in.

Hi and thanks in advance for any and all help received. I would also, in all fairness, wish to inform anyone concerned that you are currently reading the words of quite possibly the most computer illiterate human being in the free world. Having said that, I will attempt to explain my problem.
My computer has been becoming increasingly slower over the last several months. I have been dealing with/ignoring this problem until the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back began appearing on the computer screen yesterday. I am receiving this official looking warning on my computer that keeps popping up constantly with every action I attempt. The warning says:
SYSTEM ERROR
Your computer was infected by unknown trojan
It's dangerous for your system! ( critical files can be lost !)
Click to download the antispyware program to clean your system (recommended)

From what Ive read on your site and others, I am assuming this is an attempt to get me to download even more trouble than what I am currently experiencing. I almost goofed up and downloaded it when it first popped up. In fact I clicked on the ok button but thankfully was warned that it was an unrecognized site and didnt have a valid signature or something to that effect (see, I told you I was computer illiterate) and I cancelled the attempt to download.

I recently had a problem with a constant popping sound and started a thread here for help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1400691It helped me identify the source of the sound. It was suggested I post here to see if an infection is at the root of my problem.To sum up, I was hearing an almost constant bubble popping sound which ended up in fact being the Windows XP Balloon Tip Sound. After some trial and error with the advice given I found my registry had been changed to not show the balloons. Once I changed it back I began receiving the following balloon - "IP Protection Infection Detected" from Malwarebytes. Many IP's have shown up from various spots on the globe and it was suggested perhaps this forum could help me find if an infection on my PC is "calling out" to these IP's known to be associated with malware, etc.The people on the other forum were awesome and helped me get this far.

I reformatted by Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop a couple of months ago and everything's been working perfectly until a Windows SP2 update automatically installed itself last week - now Windows Media center opens up constantly (very distracting); I've removed it from services and from startup, but it continues to pop open.

Also, a funny looking file menu will sometimes pop up all by itself on the top left of the screen.

And windows or programs I have open may just close themselves out by themselves.

This has all been going on for a week and is becoming very annoying. I don't use Media Player, but understand it can't be deleted. Until I chose "Don't show me this message again" there was a message every time I booted up that said something like, "Your new hardware needs to be installed." I had not attached any new hardware.

Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want the hassle of reformatting again so soon.

Thanks,

I have an HP computer with Vista, Comcast as the ISP, and McAfee (I think it was provided by Comcast).
A new problem has popped up just recently. Every few minutes, I am interrupted when the black and red McAfee flash-screen is flashed on top of whatever I am working on. That is followed by a tan-colored screen called “Comcast Security - - - powered by McAfee”. (This is the same screen that comes up if I click on the McAfee shortcut on the Desk Top.) That screen changes its contents once before it quits. The coming of these screens has nothing to do with my pushing keys. They come even if my hands are not near the keyboard and if I am not on line with Comcast.
These screens flash on for only a fraction of a second – not long enough to read what they say. But they disrupt my train of thought and, if I am typing, can cause errors in my writing. I checked my McAfee and security settings and they seemed correct. If you can suggest a way to stop this, I would appreciate it. The screens have flashed on about six times while I was writing this.

You might want to try a Clean Boot troubleshooting procedure to hopefully isolate an offending application. Run it for both Services and Startup items.

Another thing you can try:

Download the free Process Explorer.

Run it and click Find.

Click Find handle or DLL...

Search for \device\harddisk.

See if any of the search results might have a reason to be accessing the USB drive.

I have Windows 10 and everything is running ok. Then, yesterday, I ran Windows Update and Update installed THREE updates....

KB3881449, KB3881488, KB3081452

It seems to be a NEW and BAD HABIT of Microsoft NOT to give us any details on what these updates do to our operating systems, what problems they solve, what features they provide or take away or what they modify. It would certainly be helpful in trying to diagnose a nasty problem that develops immediately, doesn't it? I don't like this new attitude at Microsoft of "we will run your computer and you will like it". Anyway, after updating and rebooting, I immediately started having a problem with the new Microsoft Edge Browser. It is now popping up on me without being asked to. This problem started immediately after I installed the updates and I DID NOTHING ELSE on my computer after rebooting.

There are a few things I want to say here...Microsoft DID THIS to my computer. I ran an anti-virus scan and malicious software scan using ESET SECURITY SUITE 8.0 both on my computer and an external ESET Anti-Virus Scan from ESET that sits off of my computer and nothing was found.

A:Edge Browser is Popping Up on Me Constantly

Edge opening constantly might be malware.

Here's a link to the Malwarebytes blog that discusses those un-closeable Tech-Support-Scam pages and sites:

PSA: Tech Support Scams Pop-Ups on the Rise | Malwarebytes Unpacked
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Edge is installed as the default Windows 10 browser. Here's how to make Internet Explorer the default browser instead.

I believe the icon for Edge is automatically installed on the Taskbar. The icon looks very similar to the Internet Explorer icon.

To pin the Internet Explorer icon to the Taskbar, click on the Start Button, click All Apps,
Scroll down and click on Windows Accessories. Right Click on Internet Explorer, click on Pin To Taskbar.
The Edge icon is a darker blue. The Internet Explorer icon is lighter blue with a gold diagonal arc across it.

Right click on the Edge icon and select Unpin From Taskbar, if you wish.

Now to make Internet Explorer the default browser:

Click on the Start Button, Settings, System, Default Apps, scroll down the Choose Default Apps list and Click on Web Browser - Edge, and choose Internet Explorer from the pop-up menu. This makes Internet Explorer the default browser.

A:Auto play popping up constantly

For security reasons, auto-play is not a good idea. There are infections that specifically take advantage of flaws in the system.

You should also enable recovery points, it can be a life-saver if something goes wrong.

You may want to try disabling it and then re-enabling it for specific drives or types of files to see if that will help with your issue:

Somehow, sometime, a certain virus got onto my PC, I'm familiar with the sort, since i had a similar problem when i use to use XP, unfortunately, i don't remember how i removed it, an now a new rogue spyware program has planted it's seeds on my computer once again. It calls itself Antispy Spider and always pops up on my task bar in a small yellow triangle with an exclamation mark saying something like: Windows Security Center
An attack on you computer has been detected
Then it opens the browser (Firefox in my case) and gives me it's page, with the asking me to buy it since it'll protect my computer...Yeah, sure. I'm using McAfee Security Center 2007, which is enough for me. I'm posting my log since i can't find the things that belong and don't and i certainly need to get rid of this blasted Malware.

Hi. I don't remember failing to untick a selection, but somehow this crummy Baboom Search element has come onto my computer. I have an Asus desktop computer and have Windows 8.1. and use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Every time I restart my computer Baboom's invisible extension activates setting Baboom Search to default alongside my Google default search and at this point I cannot remove it as a default program.

There is an option to disable the Baboom Search extension and doing so will make it disappear, but it does not give me the option to find and remove the extension that continually controls my search when I restart.

I have used Windows Defender, Anvi Smart Defender and an Anvi software trial that supposedly allowed one to use a Slim Toolbar option that could find an alter extensions and add-ons but it none of them found Baboom Search.

I cannot find the extension in any extension list, in the uninstall list in the Control Panel, nor can I find the name Baboom anywhere on my computer now that I have deleted a few small files with its name. Since I have been unable to see the extension I have been unable to get its App ID in order to find out what ID I could try deleting in the Roaming App Data on my computer but it feels like I have tried everything else to find and delete it. I even tried to find it in the Registry Editor in the apps section, but it did not appear.

I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and I get pop up warning every 3 to 4 seconds that it has blocked a Malicious Website.  Its an outbound connection with the warning:
 
Domain: (empty)

Port: (different all the time)
Type: Outbound
Process: C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe
 
When I received the laptop from previous owner, Avast virus protection was installed but not updated.
I removed it and installed Malwarebytes Premium and Eset Nod32 virus protection.
Ran MBAM and quarantined infections (lMBAMlog.txt file attached), Eset found nothing.
 
It was after MBAM install that running on the wireless connection began to produce the above stated pop-ups.
When MBAM is activated, the pop-ups start immediately and I loose wireless internet.
If wireless is turned off, no pop-ups.
Wireless connection is reestablished once I deactivate MBAM.
 
In  my attempts to fix, I also ran RogueKiller and got rid of a bunch of pum.dns
 
I also notice that what ever I search for in IE goggle, the top return is always a link to "Raaz.io/SafeSearch Install Now"

Hello, for the past three days I have been trying to access my computer. I'm quite positive I have a malware infection but I have no idea where it is. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32bit.

As soon as I boot up my computer an error pops up before the password screen. It reads LoginUI.exe - Bad Image in the top bar and then gives the description:

error. C:\windows\system32\WinTrust.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I have to click okay about 20 times before i can access the main login screen. Once i login i get another error similar but instead says Skype.exe - bad image. My windows virus protection has been disabled, and I am unable to open any virus program other than Avast and S&D. I get similar errors to the others when trying to open Norton or Ad-Aware. Even while I was trying to type my topic title to this thread, errors would come up every letter I typed.

Oh and one more thing. I am receiving window's errors constantly, the most common being Windows sidebar encountered a problem and closed, windows live id encountered a problem and closed, and gusvc encountered a problem and closed. I also cannot access msn messenger and my sound has been disabled

any help would be appreciated.

Hi!

I started getting attached pop up in my taskbar few days back and it has intensified since then. It now pops up every 2-3 min and disappears instantly. Managed to get it in screen shot.

Did bit of on-line search and there are few similar cases too but i am not sure about the reason behind it starting in my machine and solution to it.

I was getting some Bluetooth related message in Skype since i started using it just from few days back. Had skype since beginning but never used it before. Could this be because of it ? Should i uninstall and install skype again ?

And this is the first time i am facing any problem on this machine (HP Laptop with Windows 7 OS), it is about a year old.

hello master2 of seven forums,

here i have a problem, which is my pc can get very fast on boot to windows, around 60 sec or less, but the main problem is, i must wait around 30 minutes before i can do anything, like browsing, start winamp, etc. because when i clicked, the PC will be frozen.

i can start task manager, and this is what i see on physical memory:
total 16345
cached 13280
available 13266

there is lot of available memory, but free was 0. is this the main problem?

btw, my rig is :

16 gb ram
nvidia geforce gtx 550 ti
windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

thanks a lot.

A:boot up fast, 1 mins, but take 30 mins before can use start do anythin

Have you tried booting to Safe Mode? I would also try clicking "Start" then type msconfig in the "Search Programs and Files" box. Highlight it and hit "Enter". After that, go to the "Startup" tab and uncheck all of the boxes. Reboot if asked and see what happens then. If everything suddenly works right off the bat then you know that something loading on startup is crippling your system. Re-enable them one-by-one and when the problem comes back you'll know the last one is the culprit.

Is it possible to turn the displays off after 10 minutes of inactivity, but for the display to lock only after 30 minutes of inactivity? The numbers are examples, but probably close to what I'd set.

I'm keen to save power, but having a short inactivity period, but I don't want to be entering my password all the time.

A:Turn off display after 10 mins; lock desktop after 30 mins?

You can use the power saver options to turn the screen off after a certain amount of time.

Even if the monitor is turned off due to inactivity, you can also set a screen saver to blank screen after the same about of time that you used in the power options to turn off the monitor. Put a check by the "On resume, display logon screen". Then add a delay between the time that the screen saver comes on and the time that the computer locks:


Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"ScreenSaverGracePeriod"="1111"
You can change the 1111 to any number between 0 seconds and 2,147,483 seconds.
If you would rather not use the screen saver method...
...you could use a scheduled task that triggers after an idle period:

Code:
rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation

Recently I restored my computer to windows 7 after using Windows 8 for a short period of time provided by my university. I don't think the story as to why I went back is very necessary so I'll skip it and get onto my problem.

Upon returning to Win7, I began to get some errors, namely my computer would BSOD every time that it went to "sleep". Additionally, on boot-up, the bios would give me the option to boot in Win8.1, even though I had removed it.

I'm trying to solve the BSOD issue, however I think that the two are related. I have attached the minidump folders and sysinfo in a .zip. I was trying to resolve this on my own - however my understanding of hardware and software is obviously not advanced enough to do so.

A:BSOD error when computer goes to sleep. Unable to get error codes.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x89A03020, 0x89A03194, 0x805D22DA)

0xF4 is a CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
0x03 is an INVALID_AFFINITY_SET

I tried to look up what the last three are, but turned up empty.

If anyone will please help me out, that would be awesome!

Side Note 1:
The Dell support diagnostic tools will not download for some reason. Keeps coming up with an error of "can not access the internet", or something close to that, even though there is internet access and it can access the internet.

Side Note 2: I believe that the Service Pack is 2, it maybe 3.

Side Note 3: The laptop is a Dell Latitude E5400

A:time synchronization error! (w/microsoft error codes)

Try adding a different Time Server with a registry edit. I use time.nist.gov at home.

Hi. I'm working on a friend's computer. The computer has been coming up with the blue screen stop error. It will rarely load fully into windows, safemode or not, but it always restarts within a few minutes of loading the desktop. I think it loads into windows about each 15x I restart the computer, approximately.
It has Windows XP SP2 French Edition, so I've been unable to fully decipher the error messages, although the error codes are all the same. There have been multiple error codes:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000D, 0x00000007, 0x00000001, 0x825AB5C?)

STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x805EF530, 0xBACC2e7C, 0x00000000)

STOP: 0x0000000A .....

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

0x00000050 (0xBA063F78. 0x00000000, 0x8056E9EC, 0x00000000)


There have been no new installations of hardware or programs.

I can not get it to boot onto the windows disc.

Help!?

A:XP - Blue Screen Error - multiple error codes

are you trying to use the original XP disc that matches the load of XP currently on the machine.....? have you gone into the Bios to adjust the boot sequence to tell it to boot from CD rom first and force it to boot from the CD? you say it will rarely boot into Windows XP .,,so sometimes it eventually will boot stabally into the Desktop?

Hello everyone, first post on this forum but I have been to this site many times to try and fix my crashing error with the code 0x0000003b. I recently built a PC little by little using an older PC. I would swap out parts on the old one as I received them. Looking back on it now I regret not just performing a one time swap. Everything is new except for dvd drive and hard drive and the windows that was on the hard drive. (I used sysprep.exe to prepare the windows install for the out of box experience then reactivated windows. I did this about 3 weeks ago. Every since I fired up I have been having regular crashes every 40-50 minutes after using the keyboard. I thought it was a driver so I went to the sites of every new product i bought and got new drivers and even went through the device manger and updated drivers for everything in their but still no luck. I also checked that everything hardware wise was connected and re-seated. I ran memtest with no errors for more than 7 passes. I got rid of Norton and replaced with Microsoft essentials. It was weird because I only got the actual blue screen twice and it was during gta IV, but spat out the same error code. normally the screen goes into lines and the audio skips then it restarts. It doesn't appear to happen in safe mode or when I use my xbox controller. I then thought it was something wrong with my mouse, keyboard which is a logitech mx3200 keyboard and a logitech mx600 mouse both wireless. I tried using a different keyboard an... Read more

A:BSOD Every 40-50 mins, error 0x0000003b

I normally say "virtually" all of these but in this case literally every one of these were related to a memory exception (probably caused by gdrv.sys/ snmp.exe)
These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest. Yes I know you have run it before but did you run it for the 6-8 passes? Did you run the sticks individually? Every one of these was at approximately the same memory address.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Driver Verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
