Computer Freezing in Normal Mode, working in Safe Mode

Q: Computer Freezing in Normal Mode, working in Safe Mode

A few days ago, my laptop started acting strangely, like when I opened skype, the program initially would not allow calls and would freeze then eventually would freeze with any use whatsoever, followed by any others that were open, until the only option was to shut down the computer. I have suspected that skype is the culprit, but even when not using it, the same process would occur, except starting with a different program. Even before the computer froze up, I was unable to use Task Manager or System Restore. For task manager, an error box came up that said something like "security tools unable to initialize," but I can't recall the exact words and couldn't do a screengrab.

So I booted up again in Safe Mode with Networking and everything worked fine, though it isn't terribly convenient to have to use it. I ran GMER and MBAM, and the scans came back clean. ComboFix was able to eliminate some problem files when I used it, though, but when I try to boot up into Normal Mode the problem still persists, though at this point I'm reasonably sure that it isn't a virus. I've also gone through Event Logs, and I've seen some reports of memory slowing down, as well as my System Information for Windows saying that BIOS is reporting the wrong values for the memory. Also ran a scan of the system, which reported that there were corrupted files that it could not fix. I have the CBS log, but I don't have the knowledge or experience that I can make heads or tails of it, though I am worried that it could be a hardware issue because of this set of information.

Basically, I've done all that I can to try to find out what was causing it, but I'm not tech-savvy enough to parse what the cause of these problems are. I've tried to be very careful so as to not to exacerbate the problem(s), even lurked here and at other tech support forums to see what others with similar problems had done, but to no avail. I haven't attempted to uninstall then re-install the OS yet since I don't have a DVD with the OS on it, though my personal files are all backed up on an external drive, so I'm okay with that option if it is necessary. Hope you can help with this, I really feel out of my depth at this point!

Preferred Solution: Computer Freezing in Normal Mode, working in Safe Mode

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

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

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

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

Dell Vostro laptop
3ghz 2GB RAM

What I have done:

Restored to a date of last week when everything was working - didn't help
Ran updated versions of AVG and Malwarebytes - clean and didn't help
Turned off all start up items in MSCONFIG - didn't help
Turned off all non microsoft services in services in MSCONFIG - didn't help
All the drivers in my device manager seem to be working as I see no exclamation points or anything

I googled around and tried to figure it out on my own but can't seem to figure it out so if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. If you need any more information please ask and I will provide. Hope it was clear and concise.

Thanks

Hello,

My laptop is slow to boot and will run for 5-10 minutes in normal mode before it freezes and the mouse cursor disappears. At this point it will be completely frozen and I must hold the power button. In safe mode, it seems to run fine without any issues. I have gotten the BSOD twice with this problem, but never long enough for me to actually read what it said. If it makes a difference, my battery is nearly dead and I have to leave the laptop plugged in almost always.

The following symptoms could be entirely in my head...but I figured I would just give all of the information. I think I hear a slight ticking noise on startup and it seems like the fan is working overtime.

The requested .zip file is attached.

Thank you very much for any help. I'm willing to upload any more information you need if you'll tell me how to do it, I'm not overly computer-savvy.

Thanks,
Bob

Ive been having this problem for a few days now,when I start the computer,after a few minutes,no matter what I am doing or if I am not doing anything,it will freeze,the mouse and keyboard wont work and the clock stops,the 2 little monitors that show my internet connection stop flashing too...sometimes,it freezes for a few seconds and then works,and the same thing happens over and over again until it finally freezes forever...other times,it just freezes once and stays there,Ive waited hours for it to work and nothing...

the only solution is to shut down using the button,and I know that is not a good thing to do..I did a system restore,I restored it to a day before the problem started,but when it restarted to finish the restore it froze again and the restore wasnt completed,I had to shut it down pressing the button and I realized later that I lost all the restore points I had...

Okay i got a virus some how dont know how that really isnt relevant surpisingly.
i noticed it because avg picked it up and i then qaurentined it.
afterwards i used Four diff AV programs just to verify it precense.
All three found it in the exact same place under the same name and all that.
so i rebooted in safe mode, and proceeded to delete it.

I deleted the actual file, which was annoying like usual...
i had to right click on the .dll and go to the properties and remove all the permissions.
Very pety and frustrating... anyways after i deleted them,

I ran the same Four AV programs and they picked up nothing.
then i ran a specific scan with avg, only in the "system volume information folder"
i would have deleted it from there it manually, but it take like an hour,
to go through all the CMD crap, and changing variables, anyways..
it picked it up in there as i hoped it would, i then deleted it from there

afterwards i defragged my whole machine to make sure there wasnt pieces of it anywhere
after the defragging was done, i scanned again w/same 4 AV programs & found nothing
OBVIOUSLY it was gone lol.
i rebooted the system and let it boot up normal this time

Hello,

From last 2 days I am facing constant crash in windows 7 normal mode (Lenovo notebook G580). but when I do boot the pc in safe mode with networking, crash never occurs. I am posting this thread in safe mode only from the same laptop. I have dmp file generated using verifier. and the same with provided exe here. I will try to upload both. I think some driver is causing the crash but can't find which one. please help to resolve this as I hope must not be the hard disk issue.

The thread title gives the exact impression. And it was a good step to enable verifier.

Now disable verifier.

Then ....
Update the SplitCam product: SplitCam free webcam software for video streaming and adding cool webcam effects

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus (MSC) and the touchpad driver SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Then run the laptop normally. Let us see any further BSOD crash dump after doing it.

I am using Windows XP home edition with SP3. It was working normally. I used to get a popup "Windows cannot find "syssetup.exe"....When i opened yesterday morning I found it taking longer and never go to the desktop after giving the username and password. It stops at Welcome screen with a msg "Loading your personal settings" and no more response. I followed below steps to trouble shoot the issue.

1.I have tried opening in both "safemode" and "safemode with networking", found its working fine. I ran "msconfig" in safemode and unchecked some unwanted applications(nothing related to windows process) and tried again opening in normal mode.... Not worked

2. My internet works normally in safemode. Found some virus by running antivirus in safemode and cleared all the viruses.

It would be really appreciable if any one could solve my issue..

Hi all, my laptop has been acting crazy the past couple of days. First of all, I was watching a movie on it and it just shut down. when I tried restarting it in normal mode i would get to the welcome symbol after what seemed an eternity of loading, but then the screen just went black. when I opened in safe mode with networking, everything was fine. So then I went to msconfig and unchecked the two items i was allowed to. rebooted the system and I could get into normal mode again.

So the problem now is that normal mode is acting like safe mode meaning that the bottom toolbar looks the same as in safe mode as well as any of the other open windows. also, after i tried restarting it again, i get this dialogue when I try to connect to my wifi " the dependency service or group failed to start.".

Hi,

Thanks in advance.

A:Net is working with safe mode with networking but not in normal mode..why?

Hi, it could be that something is stopping or preventing your internet connection. You see when your pc boots in normal mode it loads everything and I mean everything. Whereas in safemode + networking it only loads the process and services needed to work or use the machine.

The first thing I would like you to do is go to device manager, hold windows key and press R
then type devmgmt.msc now a window will be displayed and click continue, then expand network adapters, write down what you have installed in your machine and try downloading the latest version.

The other thing you can do is go to msconfig, by holding the windows key located in between ctrl and alt, and press r on the keyboard. Then type msconfig, then go to startup and uncheck everything, click apply and restart. Now if you Internet works it means that there is something loading which is not good or is causing a conflict.

We also want to cancel out Malware so make sure your pc had anantivirus and antispyware and you scan your pc full. Also go to microsoft update and make sure you have the latest updates.

I'm using windows 7 64-bit operating system with internet explorer 11, and Firefox. I can use my browsers while in safe mode to upload / download information. However, after starting windows normally the browsers no longer work, that is, when I start IE I get the "This page cannot be displayed" message even though the url is microsoft.com and Firefox give me the Mozilla Crash Reporter form. I've checked the internet connection in network and sharing and see the connection is made; also when I run MS Security Essentials it gets the current updates. So it seems that it is just a browser issue. Thought someone might have an idea of how I can get my browsers working again.

CTL ALT DEL does not work, so i must do a hard reboot, try to boot in safe mode and all the files come up but then it goes no where and the computer either restarts or I reboot it.

I have run all types of tests and nothing comes up. Today I got the blue screen of death twice, but after reboot, it goes away. I do not have a Boot Disk and have tried all the tests in the F8 command. Currently I am running an expanded memory test, but figured I would get this out there before I go insane.

Hello, I'm hoping someone would be able to help me resolve this so that I can avoid having to reinstall Windows. Here's the situation: my laptop suddenly cannot boot up anymore; it usually hangs when the "Please wait..." dialog shows up with the text "Windows is starting up...", but sometimes it goes as far as the login prompt, then hangs after I enter my credentials and press Enter. When it hangs I cannot even move my mouse cursor. I can only think of two things I did out of the ordinary that created this mess:
I installed the driver for the Turtle Beach AudioAdvantage Micro USB stick audio card before my PC started hanging. However, after I installed the driver I was forced to reboot, and my computer rebooted just fine.
I closed my laptop's lid to put it in sleep mode while MyDefrag (formerly JkDefrag) was running. I have done this in the past without any issues, but this time when I exited sleep mode my computer was hanging, so I forced a reboot. This trouble started after I rebooted.

I am able to boot up in Safe Mode, but not Safe Mode with Networking, which leads me to think that maybe some network related drivers got corrupted. Some more info on my setup:
I have Windows XP Pro SP3 installed (v5.1.2600)
I have Avira AntiVir and Comodo Firewall installed

Hi i really need some help. I got a virus notification from mcaffee saying i have trojandownloader:win32/renos.dz and i selected remove and thought it would be fine. But the next day the computer kept restarting and ie and mozilla would not open. They only opened in safe mode with netoworking so i tried to download virus protection but when i tried to install it the computer would restart so i renamed the programs which it worked for so i could install it. I installed malware and it got rid of some files but it has not solved the issue. Also when in safe mode and using the internet the page always redirects to other pages like smartbizsearch and the internet just does not function properly.

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

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

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

Honestly, I really don't know where to begin. Every time I try to run my computer in normal mode it restarts and gives me options to run in different safe modes or try normal mode again. My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time.

The PC is a Dell XPS 400 running XP Media Edition SP 3. When you try to boot the machine in normal mode sometimes it just hangs once it reaches the desktop and other times I get a blue screen that says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP 0x0000000A (0xe1023C58, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x805E1CA5).

Hi All,

Been having this problem since yesterday. Whenever I start up windows, it freezes after a couple of minutes. Tried going into safe mode to run virus scan (Avira and Malwarebytes) but both freeze halfway through scanning and I have to do a hard reset. No idea at all what is wrong with it.

Also find that when I try to open Adobe PDF Reader, it shows this message when I am in normal mode. 'The windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running in safe mode, or if the windows installer is not correctly installed.' Right after that, it freezes. Not sure if that's relevant.
Please help me! Thanks a lot in advance!

Sir I am using windows xp service pack3 for last 4 years, It was working fine. till past few days.. when sudden power failure caused it giving following error "windows cannot find local profile..." I created new profile and copied the files from old profile to this.
Though system was working fine. one of my software MPLAB IDE was not working  it used to give unspecified error and stop. So I used registry cleaner in safe mode and MPLAB IDE was started working properly. But window become slow at the start . It takes almost 5-10 minutes to get original screen. Also When I start explorer it holds up for a while (20-25 sec ).In safe mode everything works well. What may be the problem?

A:Computer is very slow in normal mode but fast in safe mode

The registry cleaner probably removed things that some startup programs needed, so now they get stuck and slow. Considering the problem and that you had to create a new user profile, I'd probably just reinstall windows fresh. (But maybe some other people have ideas for fixing it instead)

Sorry if this has been asked before or if this is the wrong forum but ever since I tried to install the Catalyst 16.2 drivers for my AMD HD 6670 (the last set of drivers available for this card as it's now considered 'legacy') my computer has refused to do anything in normal mode and I have been using it in Safe Mode for the past few days.
 
On the day that it started, I went to sleep and woke up to find that the driver installation had failed and found my computer was running very slowly so I decided to restart it. When I restarted the computer wouldn't do anything at startup and would say 'not responding' if I tried to click anything. Although I sometimes managed to open up Windows Explorer, when I press download the bar you get when searching for files etc. to do with loading reaches the end and just doesn't do anything (staying in the libraries page).
 
I've followed a few instructions and completely uninstalled the drivers in safe mode, I've run MalwareBytes, I've run ESET's online virus scanner, and I've tried to run Avast's boot mode scan (it didn't work, it just booted into my normal mode on my computer which also, didn't work).
 
My computer is absolutely fine in Safe Mode and runs faster than I've seen it run in a while.
 
Thanks for the help.

A:Computer Hangs in Normal Mode but not Safe Mode

Catalyst should have created a Windows Restore Point. So, if you can get it to boot into safe mode, you should use system restore to rectify the failed Catalyst install.
 
Windows should have a workable driver for your 6670 in its driver database. You can also go to website of the maker of the card for the latest driver.
 
To make your PC work better out of Safe mode.
 
If you reinstall Catalyst to get your driver. I have found you can disable the AMD External Events in Services. 
You can use Blackviper.com to streamline you services.
You can use Autoruns http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/autoruns/ to slim down your start up applications.

When I got to the office, I searched on how to remove it and was advise to download MALWAREBYTES and run it on safe mode. I did that and run the program on my home computer three times. The last run showed 0 infection. Thinking that I now have a virus free computer, I tried to run it on Normal Mode. But my home computer won't open on Normal Mode!!! I tried pressing F8 and running everything from Safe Mode with Networking, Normal Mode, even system restore, etc.

Oh I also tried to run the system restore disk and just start from scratch, but my computer says it cannot be run on Safe Mode.

I'm pretty sure that uninstalling directx can solve my issues but I just can't get in.

A:Computer can't boot through safe mode or normal mode

Hello rtsrangel and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you created a System Repair Disc you can use it to boot your computer. Then you can access various System Recovery Options such as system restore. You could then restore your computer to an earlier date/time prior to when you installed the directx sdk.

System Repair Disc - Create

Or perhaps your computer manufacturer created a hidden recovery partition. You can usually access this partition by turning on your computer and immediately clicking the F8 key (top of keyboard.) Keep clicking until you see the Advanced Boot Options screen. From here you should be able to select Repair Your Computer.

System Recovery Options

Hi everybody.

My computer has been infected with a virus for the past few months and I've been using Safe Mode most of the time. It all started when last night, I installed Spyware Doctor on my computer. It told me to restart my computer so I did so. (Note: I installed Spyware Doctor using Safe Mode with networking.)
When it restarted, I went to Safe Mode. All the time, I log in as Owner and not Administrator. When I clicked on Owner, it says "Loading Your Personal Settings..." Then it goes to the usual Safe Mode black screen and this time it said "Logging Off... Saving Your Settings..." and goes back to the log in screen.
The same thing happened when I logged into Administrator.
Next thing I did, I tried going to Normal Mode. But, my desktop picture is the only thing that shows. A couple of minutes later, it goes back to the Welcome screen.
Further information, I tried to use the last known good configuration, but it still wouldn't work.

I really need help. Thanks for your cooperation!

Hey all. I'm new here but, I've had this problem for weeks now and I've decided enough is enough.

1. About several weeks ago, seemingly out of nowhere, my internet connection started behaving incorrectly. It was occasionally having small pockets where it'd drop out. A ping test to websites such as google would give both "Reply from" and "Reply failed."

2. Internet using applications such as MSN and AIM were unaffected but a game I was playing would drop out whenever this occurred, and internet pages would either partially load or time out.

3. This error gradually became worse and worse, the time outs more frequent, to the point where MSN and AIM were only barely working. I contact my ISP and the connection was fine, the modem is fine, etc.

4. Also - another thing that occurs while my desktop PC had errors - all other machines connected to the network experience similiar errors, the dropping out of the connection. It is only when my PC is switched off or the cable removed ; that they would perform normally again.

5. Every now and then the connection would suddenly return to it's normal state. In a state where it was not performing ANY internet functions (no applications, constant ping time out) I took it to a technician. They plugged it into their modem, it worked fine for an hour, so they let me take it home. It worked perfectly for about a day, until I woke up the next morning to discover the same errors starting again.

It will freeze regardless of logging in and out of any accounts. I even tried making a new account to see if there was a conflict with just my main account, though, to no avail.

^----This poster seemed to have had the same problem as I but I have tried all the methods posted in this post.

I have a:

Pavilion g6 Notebook PC
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, AMD64 Family 18 Model 1 Stepping 0
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 3562 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6520G, 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 457944 MB, Free - 333087 MB; D: Total - 14730 MB, Free - 1639 MB; E: Total - 4055 MB, Free - 1124 MB;
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard, 169B
Antivirus: Norton Internet Security, Disabled

I would just like to add that my grapics card has been acting up, occasionally giving me a BSOD and causing the computer to perform a physical dump of the memory whenever it happens. Most recently, this scenario happened again but I had happen to be downloading files using uTorrent so I don't know if that may be one of the problems or not. Whether or not it was, I unistalled uTorrent but nothing has changed.

I appreciate any assistance!
