IE 8 generates Not Responding messages.

Q: IE 8 generates Not Responding messages.

IE8 and a few other applications have been generating the "Not Responding" messages. I bring up Task Manager to close the failing application, and it to fails intermittantly. When I try to close the failing application(s), it requires several attempts to close the application(s); and at times I will get the not responding message from Task Manager itself. The event log for Applications shows several errors of the 1001 and 1002 codes. When I go to the Microsoft Help website the indication is there is no help for these problems. This condition has been happening for several weeks. Any help provided in solving this problem is appreciated. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: IE 8 generates Not Responding messages.

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: IE 8 generates Not Responding messages.

Did you run virus scan if not then do a scan, if you do not have any Antivirus installed use:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

I just my laptop back from Lenovo repair with a new harddrive and a new thermal door. I've got just about everything back on the laptop as it was before problems and I'm already getting 'not responding messages'. I have IObit Malware Fighter running, and Super AntiSpyware Free running, and I use McAfee from Bell, and Avast! free Antivirus, as well as running ccleaner, Slimcleaner, and Winutilities weekly and I run Advanced Care System (always), and System Mechanic monthly. You'd think I'd be safe but obviously something has gotten into my laptop and is playing havoc with my harddrive. I've checked around and got some ideas about running some hard core free malware programs that I might try but thought I'd ask here first.

So, Here it is: What do you think I should do now? My warranty with Lenovo ran out on the 3rd of March 2014 but I have an extended warranty with the laptop seller. So do I call a Technician or do I run some programs, and if I do, what programs do you suggest?

A:HELP Already getting 'not responding' messages

You paid for the warranty so I suggest you take advantage of it.

Hey Guys,

The last month I have been dealing with not responding messages. I will be in the middle of a task or running various pieces of software and the not responding messages pop up and everything lags. I have noticed it is increasingly getting worse. I am not even sure where to start to locate the problem.

Thanks in advance,

A:Not responding messages...

Information addition: I have been trying to research this issue all day. There was an article on running a scannow sfc to check for corrupt files. I got a message after the scan saying that windows found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I looked at that log file but I really have no idea what I am looking for.

I bought Win7 upgrade for Vista. Since then, multiple problems. I have HP and leave it on 24/7. I turn my router off every time I log out of my Verizon with MSN Premium account and turn on when I want to back on the internet. I turn the router on and I always play a game waiting for the router to fully boot. My solitare game won't load or respond nor can I log on to internet. I go to task manager and close the program. I try that multiple times wasting 20 minutes or more. I then skip the game and log on using IE. Guess what?? IE logs me onto internet. I then have to log off and log back on using MSN. I can then log on. Can anyone help me??

I have a problem very similar to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic416137.html.
After I reboot and click the log in button it takes up to 10 min for Windows to start responding and the intro/welcome music to be played. Also, I often get not responding messages for almost all programs.

Avast, Malwarebytes and Hijackthis didn't find anything so I ran Combofix.

Here is the log file.

Computer is constantly hanging with (not responding) although I can still use the mouse. Fan also seems to be running louder although this may be my imagination. I have run all the antivirus/malware scans, used ccleaner, defragged, physically cleaned any dust and nothing helps. The computer is an hp pavilion laptop just purchased in january. Somehow I have no system restore dates. I don't know what else to do. Note, the problem is not only with Firefox but happens randomly with other applications as well. My hijinkthis log is below. Somehow I could not get the dds application to run.

I am trying to clean up and fix my son's computer. He is running Windows XP Professional and gets lots of program not responding messages and IE, even though the connectivity exists, does not work. We get messages such as "page cannot be displayed" and 'can't find server" messages. I have run several scans to clean up his HD, including: AVG, Microsoft AntySpyware, Spyware Guard, etc. I just ran HijackThis and I would appreciate it if you could look at this log and see if you find anything.

It is difficult to work with his PC because he has no access to the internet but he needs his computer for school and to chat with his friends.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

I have for some time had problems with my computer slowing down and suffering from frequent bouts of 'Not Responding' on applications, mainly Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel.

I previously enquired via Malware Forum - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic416137.html/page__view__getnewpost

They advised there were no malware issues and suggested I try this forum.

My computer is now at the stage where it is periodically unusable, so any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks.

Hi guys, It's been awhile and thank you for the birthday greeting. I am having a problem with firefox. It has added a space for an ad at the top of my email page which I don't think is the problem but it is new. The real problem is that I keep getting messages about scripts that are unresponsive and asking me to wait or stop the script. Then firefox doesn't respond. They alternate with each other. I did do a Hijack which I can include. Hope you can help. Thank you.

Hello! I'm having serious issues with my computer. It takes a long time to load upon starting, takes a long time to get to my destination, when it gets on the page it freezes and a message appears saying, (Not Responding).

A windows message then pops up saying, "You've chosen to end a program that's not responding. If you end now, you'll lose all unsaved work." I can either chose "End now or cancel". If I cancel, the page doesn't unfreeze.

I know it can be either a software conflict or malware, but I don't know which one. I've already recently ran a performance booster on it, and that really didn't do much that I can see. I've defragged too. I ran a registry cleaner on it. I cleared the caches. It hasn't changed a thing.

There's one other user on my computer who's downloaded some various programs. I know he doesn't check on the software before downloading. HELP!!

I was going to choose a free software to tell me if I have software issues or hardware issues, but I don't know which ones are the best and less harmful for my computer. Also, I haven't tried a malware removal either. I'm afraid to download anything and ONLY trust Techspot to tell me which ones to download.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

My wife is from Waynesboro, PA and she read about this website in the local newspaper (apparently the creator of the site is from there and lives there as well). Sorry, but she wanted me to mention this

My problem is that everything is taking forever to happen in my computer. Examples: when I try to open a folder it takes minutes for that folder to open; if I try to rename a file it takes minutes for the "right click" to start a menu of options; when I try to empty the trash it takes minutes for that to happen (if it ever happens). Often, when a folder will not open and I use the "task manager" the window of the folder that is taking forever to open will shut down after a "not responding" message. What sometimes happens is that I receive a "Windows Explorer not responding" window. Also, some programs will either take forever to open or will just not open at all when I try to open them.

I have already ran Malaware, Search & Destroy and SuperAntiSpyware and removed some crap they found. I also did a "system restore" to about one week ago (before these problems started). Here follows my HiJack this log.

Please help. This computer is only one year old and there is no reason for it to be acting this way other than the fact it is probably infected.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I recently installed windows 7 on my laptop and it repeatedly shows "not responding" next to the title and freezes temporarily. I have tried different Anti-Virus programs and re-indexing but to no avail.

I read that I should check my registry so I downloaded Auslogics Registry Cleaner and ran it. It found and fixed 145/146 of registry errors. The only error left is:

Problem, Severity, Category
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D5E8041D-920F-45e9-B8FB-B1DEB82C6E5E}\, High, Empty, unused registry key.

Anyone have any suggestions for whether or not this is causing the freezes and/or what else to try in order to fix them?

That is not what is causing the freezing. By remote chance do you have a backup from before the problem started?

If not please check event viewer for error messages
There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

I saw the other thread here about "Windows 8 Pro Randomly Freezing," but I think I'm seeing something slightly different. In my case, I'm getting random, repeated instances of various desktop applications temporarily "locking up" and displaying a "Not Responding" message in the title bar of the effected app.

I see this most commonly in Firefox (32-bit version, v17.0 release). These lock-ups last roughly a minute. It seems to help to minimize the Firefox window (yes, even when not responding, window controls are operative) and then restore it. It will still display the "Not Responding" message, but this seems to clear within 10 or 15 seconds. Not sure this is a fix, and it could be coincidental.

While I initially thought my problem was Firefox, I'm seeing it in other apps, including Evernote and Windows Explorer. I think on a couple of occasions I actually saw this "Not Responding" message appear in dialog boxes.

Is anyone else seeing something similar, and does anyone have any suggestions for a workaround/fix? Very annoying.


A:Repeated "Not Responding" Messages in Windows 8 Pro

There's an add-on called DNS flusher in FF, it might solve the problem.

For the past month or so, I have been getting frequent "Not Responding" messages while using browsers, games, and virtually all other local apps. The frequency is higher in the first hour of use each day and I've run malware and virus apps to try to see if those things might be the problem. The Not Responding messages dim the screen (mist effect) and last anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds. Essentially they freeze the app except sometimes the frozen app can still be minimized so another app can be accessed and used. I'm running WIN 10 but am not sure whether to problem is with Windows or virus/malware related. Any ideas?

My Windows 8 pro x64 is installed yesterday, behaves exactly like the old one from one week ago, exactly like the previous installation. If I run "sfc /scannow" my CBS.log is around 90-100 MB in size, it was 160 MB at some point. I am booting from a 60GB SSD if it matters. The system runs fine, I have no errors so the amount of errors reported by sfc is just... weird.

Dism reports every time that everything is OK, no errors found. Chkdsk also says nothing is wrong.
I did everything that was written in the sfc tutorials from within Windows, I ran sfc several times, I exported the log to sfcdetails.log and it has over 60 MB...

I looked into the file and all reported errors are the same type, like the one below with "file is missing" :

2013-07-25 09:54:06, Info CSI 00000012 [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"1394ohci.sys" of 1394.inf, Version = 6.2.9200.16384, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, file is missing

Now it's impossible to have the amount of errors reported, something else must be happening here.
Any ideas ?


A:sfc generates 90-160 MB logs

Hello jdaniel,

I totally agree with your logic, your findings, and your conclusion (implied) that sfc /scannow might not be all that it should. Specifically, I have seen many individuals report that "everything is fine" but they are compelled to do a "super-clean" check via running sfc /scannow only to be disappointed that it found many errors. This is why I recommend that users, not having a specific problem, should not run sfc /scannow. With that said, I am running it right now on my perfectly clean test rig. BTW, I looked at your log (briefly) and saw many missing files associated with the AMD architecture. Now, my test rig is an AMD based laptop so let's see what happens. I'll update my thread with my findings and we'll compare notes at that time so hang in ther and I'll be back shortly.

For the past month or so, I have been getting frequent "Not Responding" messages while using browsers, games, and virtually all other local apps. The frequency is higher in the first hour of use each day and I've run malware and virus apps to try to see if those things might be the problem. The Not Responding messages dim the screen (mist effect) and last anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds. Essentially they freeze the app except sometimes the frozen app can still be minimized so another app can be accessed and used. I'm running WIN 10 but am not sure whether to problem is with Windows or virus/malware related. Any ideas?

Hey everyone. I'm using an HP Pavilion laptop. I'm having a problem that just started yesterday. As I view the web I keep getting freeze-ups and the "(not responding)" message on the top. It seems to happen most often when I'm typing in the address bar and it also happens while I'm watching youtube videos (the video and audio freeze up) or when I'm trying to scroll up and down on a page. It seems to last around 20 or 30 seconds at a time when it does it.

Now it only seems to be doing it on Firefox but earlier it was doing it on all web browsers. I used IE to sign up here and I didn't get any freeze ups. I deleted the history and cookies too but I did the same on Firefox and it didn't work. Do you guys have any ideas what might be causing this? If you need any other details just mention.

Every few days, my Compaq Pesario PC (by HP), running Vista, slows waaay dowwwnnnn. I get messages at the top of the window "[this software] not responding." A few seconds to many seconds later, it starts responding. Even when typing text, the letters may not appear immediately, the cursor remains stationary, then the letters appear in a sudden burst. It seems as if something in the background is intermittently taking over. Even my display goes blank for a few seconds, then comes back on. I get a message that the display driver stopped responding then recovered. It takes forever to shut down.

I don't know if this is a software of hardware problem. Any suggestions?

I get that a lot, as I'm short of RAM. Well, that and the fact that I'm impatient. Might pay you to post a few more details such as more of your stats, and a bit more info about when it happens. Eg, do you have only one window open when this happens, or several? Have you recently installed any new programmes etc. Gives people something to work with.

Hi folks,
I am not sure exactly when this started to occur, as I mostly use Linux on this box, and it's a while since I tried to install from an exe on the XP part.

When I try to run most installers for applications I get this error.
When I try to run SOME already installed applications (most are okay) I also get this error.

I have no idea what is causing it.
I have tested the ram and it came up okay. I tried to run a checkdsk on C: (which set itself to run on next reboot) but windows failed to boot when it came time.

"Access violation at address 004096DA. Write of address 00400000"

Any tool I've tried to install to try and fix it simply creates the same error and thus can't be installed. So my computer is a bit stuck!!

Does anyone have any bright ideas? I would really rather not reinstall Windows, which is about the only fix I can think of.

With thanks,


A:XP generates Access violation with most .exe's

Further information:
This error actually prevents quite a few programs from running. Not sure just how many.
I did not occur when XP is in safe mode. I can install and run programs to my hearts content.
In Safe Mode I have run various tools to clean up / fix the registry. I also ran a tool from http://wiki.djlizard.net/Repair_Permissions to repair registry permissions (in case that was the issue). All of these tools made a large number of changes. I also ran lastest Adaware and that cleaned a couple of minor things up.

Once back in normal boot mode, the problem persists.

I would really like to fix this.

With thanks,

Hey! I have a strange issue, I couldn't find anything like this. So I bought a Samsung S24D300 a few weeks ago. It works well, didn't have any pixel problems etc. But yesterday I noticed that after some time (let's say around 1 hour after turning it on), it generates a single red stuck pixel, which is only visible on black background. But, after I turn it off for 10 minutes, it disappears. And as I see, it becomes brighter and brighter, still not that big deal (at least I will turn it off more often), but it annoys me, as my previous B300 also had a blue stuck pixel, and I cannot return it now. What can cause this? I will try running JScreenFix and other softwares after it appears, however it does not disappear if I massage it gently. Has anybody had any problems like this? Thank you.

EDIT: now I didn't have the problem for hours, then I started Skyrim, and the red pixel appeared immediately.

This is very strange situation. When asking for a new pasword as a registered user on a website like www.phpmydriectory.com from a Vista computer and then clicking on the confirmation link in the email sent by the website, generates 2 mouseclicks, so that the mail with the new password is sent twice. This only happens on Vista systems. All other OSs work fine, so it is not a bug in the script.
Any idea what the reason might be? And how to solve it?


A:Single click generates 2 mouse clicks

Hi Frlill, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might have your double-click speed set to fast in the Mouse settings in the Control Panel (Classic View). Check there (in Activities tab for me in Mouse settings) and slow it down a bit and test to see if that helps any.

Hope this helps,

Today, firefox still just sits there, IE seems to be behaving.

Uninstall and re-install firefox is about all I can say to try right now. Also be sure to check how firefox connects, make sure its still set to however you connect.

Dunno about your IE problem, that doesn't sound healthy, but if you ran all that crap and didn't find anything then I guess thats all you can do.

I have a data logging program that runs 24/7 and which displays a continuous record of the data on the CRT. It is really an MSDOS program, but it runs fine on Win98. When it is running, it takes over the entire display. The problem is that it will not tolerate ANY sort of screen output from another program. It immediately locks up, although it doesn't take Windows down with it.

I would like to use the task scheduler to run a little .bat script that uploads a day's worth of data to web page. I can redirect the output generated by various commands in the .bat to the NUL device, and prevent the script from generating any output, but Windows insists on opening a MSDOS window when the .bat runs, even though nothing gets displayed in it. Just opening the window is enough to derail the data collection program. I had hoped that I could do something like "upload.bat > NUL" but it doesn't work.

I could always write the script to run from another machine to control the process remotely, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of keeping a separate machine on line just to run a 10 second task once a day.

Anybody know a way around this?

A:Is it possible to write a .BAT file that generates NO screen output?

If you were running this on Windows 2000 or XP I would suggest using this.

There is a way to do this with a vbscript as well. Basically runs a command shell invisibly in the background without seeing it. I will have to digg up that link.
