Preferred Solution: Computer freezing unpredictably.

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: Computer freezing unpredictably.

I had similar problems with freezing and DHCP errors. Read a post that said to disable Net BIOS, an obsolete network protocol.

Here's more information and directions:

Even if this doesn't solve your problem, it's a good idea to do anyways. Post back if it doesn't and we'll look further.

Hi, I'm a newbie and please be gentle.My vista home premium (2007), from dell, has been freezing up recently. Sometimes it does so immediately after I open a program--it seems to happen more often when I'm connecting online via IE or Firefox, but sometimes it works fine for several minutes or even longer before it freezes. When it does this, Task Manager does not work. Usually I can't get anything to respond or react in anyway, so I simply power off and restart.I have used the windows diagnostics (f12 key) when starting: no problems reported. I have used ccleaner multiple times.I have used malware antibytes, with no problems identified.I have gone into 'msconfig' and stopped lots of programs from starting automatically at startup.It seems to be doing better, not happening as often, but I'm still getting the 'freeze up' nearly every time I use the computer.Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.MaryHere's a log file from hijack this:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 3:07:41 PM, on 2/21/2010Platform: Windows Vista SP1 (WinNT 6.00.1905)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.6001.18882)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Windows\system32\taskeng.exeC:\Windows\system32\Dwm.exeC:\Windows\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\DellTPad\Apoint.exeC:\Windows\System32\WLTRAY.EXEC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgtray.exeC:\Windows\Syst...

Problems:
1.) Computer reboots unpredictably:
Sometimes when adding a task or switching tasks.
Sometimes during software set-up & installation programs.
When 4 or 5 windows are open.
High demand on available ram.

2.) Stalls during boot-up at various steps, i.e. bios screen, black screen, Windows screen.
Stalls during shut-off at "WINDOWS IS SHUTTING DOWN" screen.

3.) Programs stall and generate error notices like "Program Needs To Close"

4.) Sometimes the computer stalls while scrolling down a page.
Possible origins of trouble:
1.) Computer was immediately hijacked when I opened an e-mail attachment that was labled as a

software offering. The keyboard and mouse went dead and the computer was scanning rapidly.

I had to unplug and re-start the computer to re-gain control.

2.) Incorrect use of "ComboFix". I neglected to close either a firewall or an anti-malware program before
running ComboFix.
Repair efforts taken.
Reduce desktop Icons and Tray Icons.
Replaced ribbon cable between HDD and motherboard.

Ran the following programs :
1.) Advanced System Care ver 3.7.3 from IObit
2.) Spyware S&D.

A:Computer reboots unpredictably.

1) NEVER USE REGISTRY CLEANERS - they cause problems, they don't cure them
2) I didn't see any mention of an anti virus scan
3) Spybot and AdAware are old school. If I were you I'd uninstall them and replace them with either MalwareBytes or SuperAntispyware
4) Go to System Properties - Advanced - Startup & Recover Settings and uncheck "automatically restart"
5) If you suspect malware you should post in the Am I Infected forum on this site
6) Download BlueScreenView:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.

About six months ago, we bought a D-Link DNS-320 ShareCentre, installed two 1TB Seagate HDs, and began using it for our fileshare. Access and speed was OK, but not great.

Since about two weeks ago, our access to the fileshare has been intermittently very slow. Files (any size, 1 KB up to megabytes) load after a long hang-time, or don't load at all. The delay is far, far beyond the difference between 10/100/1000 bps connections. Navigating between folders, saving, moving, copying, and deleting files also have this intermittent hanging.

Hey there.

Recently I have upgraded to Windows 10.

I am experiencing an issue where sometimes when I plug in my headphones, there will be no audio coming from them even when Im playing music on the computer.

The music always plays fine from the speakers.
The music always plays fine from headphones when I'm using a USB DAC.
The music always played fine in Windows 8.1 before this through headphones..
The music always plays fine in Linux, my dual boot along side Windows 10.

My headphones for sure work as all my other devices and OSes are fine with it.
My hardware is fine as everything work(s/ed) fine for Linux and Windows 8.1.
My computer always recognizes the headphones when I plug them in, but won't always play audio through them.

Restarting the computer does not always fix the issue, but rebooting into Linux then back into Windows 10 always fixes the issue.

I have tried 3 different sets of audio drivers; Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows Generic Drivers for my device (Eurocom M4). The problem persists in all of them.

I have updated my BIOS to a Windows 10 supported one my manufacturer provided. It didn't help.

It isn't malware for sure as this has been happening since the OS was newly installed.

It persists with all headphones, not just one pair.

Anyone have any possible idea how to fix this issue? I've tried everything I could.

I know there are several varoius posts regarding the USB C thunderbolt connector but I have not fould one about intermittent un predictable performance. I am using a Dell docking station that has a USB C connector WD15. Sometimes the display will function other times it will not. I have to turn the cable upside down and re-insert into the computer. It would seem to me that the conenction should be the same regardless of orientation. Most of the time I have to choose between charging and second display. It seems to vary based on the orientation of the connector. However this does not seem predictable. Also it seems to be equally unpredictable regadless of the USB port selected. I have updated drivers via Lonovo and I am up to date in Windows. How can I get the display port and charger to work at the same time. The mouse and headset do not seem to be affected. Thank you

I have tried a number of search terms here, but don't find this reported anywhere-- so here goes nothing:

The machine: HP Pavillion dv8000 (portable), x86, 512M RAM
OS: WIN XP Pro v.5.1.2600 SP2, build 2600

The issue:

I fire up the machine and go about my business. The system works with my chosen keystroke repeat rate (very high) which correctly works after the machine booted. Fine.

But at SOME point-- and it seems to have something to do with simultaneously having PhotoShop, Firefox, Wordpad and the imagining software from my Fuji digital camera open at the same time as Norton is running a "live update"-- all of a sudden the keystoke repeat rate "sets itself" to "snail's pace." I go to the control panel > keyboard and find that the slider control for the keystoke repeat rate is now all the way over to the left (super slow). I reset it to a fast rate, apply, and the system works normally again.... maybe for weeks, maybe for a few minutes.

I am yet to actually reproduce the conditions that cause this "quirk."

If I reboot the machine while the keystroke repeat rate is "slow" like this, the system comes back up with my "fast" preset.

I doubt this is a "security" issue... but it's certainly ANNOYING, when it happens.

Is there legitimate software that examines such things as keystroke rates, and "makes the determination" that it needs to be reset, in order for the software... Read more

Less than 2 weeks after the end of my 1-year warranty, my Lenovo Yoga 920 crashed. I've used Lenovo products for years and have recommended the Yoga 920 specifically to many of my coworkers, so when I experienced a hard crash (no blue screen, just a stuck image on screen) I assumed it was something Windows/Driver related. For the past two weeks I've been on a journey to try and resolve the issue but haven't had much luck. Below is a history of what I've experienced and what I've tried:Friday, August 2nd - Computer was plugged in and on, but not being used, when I found it unresponsive. I tried turning it back on and within 1-2 minutes of booting up, it would crash again. Any image on screen would remain on screen (sometimes with visual artifacts, sometimes without) and any music that was playing would be suspended indefinitely until I hard powered off.Booting the machine in Safe Mode would allow me to use the machine for any period of time - the 1-2 minutes before crash was only experienced under normal boot upSaturday-Wednesdays - No issuesWhatever was causing my crashes all Friday (until late in the night) was not causing it for the next several days.

I recently built my first PC three days ago...
Specs:
i7 bloomfield 960 processor
4x4 vengeance ram
crosair hx850 PSU
evga x58 ftw3 mobo
hd 6870 radeon graphics xfx

When I first installed windows it started to work just fine but I soon noticed that it would randomly freeze every 15-30 minutes of use, but not on a particular program or anything. I assumed it was drivers so I installed the latest drivers for my GPU and MOBO and keyboard. It seemed fine again until it started crashing again. I ran a GPU burn test and a CPU burn test it passed both... (I tried runing memtest86+ but it froze at like 12%) Then I tried fixing the registry so I downloaded ccleaner and fixed the registry problems. Freezes continued. I finally decided to re install windows so I did and the problems still continued. I am at a loss of what to do and can't think of anything else.

any advice would be appreciated if not I will bring to a repair shop and have them sort it out.

A:Newly built computer random freezing and freezing on starting windows

Hello Skytri and welcome to Seven Forums. My usual disclaimer: I'm not at expert at anything.

I'm wondering if there isn't a RAM problem. Perhaps one of the sticks wasn't seated properly, etc. You could open Resource Monitor > Memory tab and make sure all RAM is being recognized. Make sure Installed = 16384MB and the Available + Cached + Hardware Reserved is the same amount. (You are using 16GB total, correct?)

Resource Monitor

If Memtest freezes you could try a quick check for a bad RAM module. Install one stick in Slot # 1 (or whichever slot the mobo manual says to use.) Run the computer to test for freezes. Test each of the remaining sticks one at a time. If all 4 sticks work you might want to go through these troubleshooting guides. They are time consuming but many people have been able to isolate their computer problems.

Hello,

I'm going to post two different scenarios that happens when my computer needs a hard restart
My computer freezes completely (literally no movement on the screen or anything, it's not slow it's frozen). And an extremely loud buzzing sound comes out of my headphones or speakers.The same thing as above except without the loud buzzing noise.

I saw that this happened to someone else who had both the speakers and the headphones plugged in at the same time. However, scenario #2 just happened to me 10 minutes ago even though I only had my headphones plugged in.

I built this computer six months ago and it's the first computer I've ever built. I assume it's a driver issue but I can't really pinpoint the problem since no BSOD appears on the screen and I have no higher computer knowledge.

I'm attaching the zip file required.

A:Random Computer Freezing - Need to hard restart after freezing No BSOD

Wow, this sounds like the same thing that happened to a friend of mine when his hard drive was failing. Replaced the drive and the freezes went away. Even the buzzing noise.

Also you may need to look at what drivers you may have just install/updated.

Hoping you don't have any failing hardware "Motherboard, video card, etc". Those are expensive

Hello, I'm having an issue with my computer.

My computer has started to restart/freeze up on me. The thing is, it has graphical issues once it freezes/tries to reboot. I get all these lines through the screen, graphical glitches when trying to go through the BIOS, etc. The computer isn't too slow, it isn't acting strange, the only thing that is wrong is the obvious freezing/restarting with graphical lines and glitches once it freezes.

My video card has been going out for a long time(I share a computer with a few people and they seem to think the video card is ok, but I have always seen small glitches in graphics here and there), so I am thinking maybe this might be a problem, given the graphical glitches, the horizontal lines going through the screen once it freezes.

When it hits the BIOS, it sometimes shows these same lines with the screen going mostly black.

System specs are:

CPU - Core 2 Duo, speed I don't remember.

Video Card - Geforce 7900 GT 512mb

Ram - 2GB DDR2

Motherboard - Asus, P5N-E SLI

I got this computer a few years back and I am not one to keep updated with specs or talk about them often, so I have forgotten the speed of the CPU and I do not know if I am missing information for you guys.

Solutions I have tried:

Overheating - I used air to filter out all dust/dirt that might be there to harm the computer, I have plenty of fans in there, etc.

Any and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Computer Freezing/freezing/graphical glitchs

If you're getting graphical 'glitches' while in bios, that's usually a good sign that your graphics card is having issues - however, I have seen this happen with faulty ram. I'd recommend reseating the cards (ensure your computer is off and unplugged whilst doing so) and see if that helps

I don't see anything in your log or your description of your problem to come to the conclusion that your problem is malware related. When there is malware present there will always be other internet related symptoms like popups or a browser hijack etc...

I will advise you to uninstall Microsoft Anti-Spyware as the version you have is very old and no longer supported. It in now called Windows Defender.

Here are some routine maintenance practices that you should do on a regular basis to keep your machine running efficiently. Go through this now and see if it helps:

Disk Cleanup:

http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_cleanup_utility.htm

Defrag your HD:

http://artsweb.bham.ac.uk/artsit/Info/Guides/GoodPractice/defrag-win2kxp.htm

Run chkdsk:

To use Chkdsk, click Start and My Computer. Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and click Properties. Select the Tools tab and click Check Now. Check both boxes. Click Start. You'll get a message that the computer must be rebooted to run a complete check. Click Yes and reboot. Chkdsk will take awhile, so run it when you don't need to use the computer for something else.

Remove unnecessary startups

This should be done through the System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type in msconfig.
Click OK or hit the Enter key.

Click on the "Startup" tab and remove the check by the items that you have determined are unnecessary. Click "Apply" then "Close"

I called the manufacturer and he said to restore windows to factory settings, so I did that. Things were great for a week or so, but recently my computer has begun freezing again. It happens pretty frequently. Firefox will also freeze when trying to get it to do very little work, like loading two tabs simultaneously, e.g. My AVS found a suspicious file recently and quarantined it, but still, the freezing has continued.

Had the day from hell with my computer, antivirus stopped working and my computer got infected. On safe mode with networking, I ran malwarebyte a couple times, cleaned most all of it out. When rebooting to windows, computer became super slow, like 5 minutes to open a window, etc. I had to force reboot a few times. But then I started getting a screen that demanded a reboot disk. Only one I have is. a windows vista disc. I had windows 7. It won't let me even get that blue startup screen where I can push f keys.
Can anyone give me some advice, or do I need to just get a new hard drive.

A:computer infected , cleaned, bsod, freezing, now computer wants boot disk

Welcme,
The problem isn't the hard drive, it's that you are still infected.
I'm going to ask a moderator to move this thread into Am I Infected so that you can work with one of the expert volunteers there to get your system cleaned correctly.

I have a HP Pavillion dv9417ca Notebook PC with AMD Turion 64X2 Mobile Technology Tl-56, 2.0G Ram, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 with Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2.

The computer when running slowly makes a ton of noise starting up and running and tends to use more processing. The computer sometimes makes weird noises that aren't normal windows sounds and come from error's. Like intense beeping noises ocassionally. Firefox especially is insanely slow and the longer I run it the more processing power it uses up along with the plugins.exe. Sometimes it will uses so much that it completely freezes my computer. Lately I've also been having trouble starting the computer where it won't even load windows.

I've ran Ccleaner daily and Malwarebytes weekly and find nothing and the problem has been getting progressively worse. I have Avast which updates daily.

Now, its slower then my older computer, which I thought was impossible. I mean...This is pathetic. I unistalled AVG cause there was a process running that is supposed to be a Trojan, and a program said AVG was running it. So, I deleted it, was prompted to restart, so I did. It took literally 10 minutes to shut down and restart. At worst, my old computer took 5 minutes. (P4 2.8, 1.5 gigs ram, ATI Radeon 9800). So, how do I fix this? I have a theory its Microsoft forcing people to upgrade by putting out crappy updates. I mean, for my card, the newest driver is dated the beginning of last year...They come out with a new one but its Vista only. Woo...idiots. So basically it started about 3 days ago, aprox. 4 days after this computer was built. I was playing Battlefield 1942, it froze. I tried 5 times, it froze in different spots at different times. I reinstalled. Same thing. Oblivion goes for about 30 minutes then crashes to the desktop. I then hit the window to maximize again, and it freezes. This has happened everytime as well. I also did older games, same thing, but done differently.

A:I Need Help...slow Computer, Freezing Games, On A Fast Computer...(possible Trojan)

The first thing which strikes me is that you have 2 anti-virus applications on your computer ( Zone Alarm security suite and AVG Free) Having two anti virus applications running on your PC can give conflicts so I suggest you uninstall one.For the antispyware applications do you have all real time protection enabled?..I first would try Microsoft online test and see what comes up. The freezing can also indicate faulty memory, there for run a Memtest to rule that out.

My laptop is a Gateway 450 ROG and it has had this problem for the last week. It will run for roughly 40 minutes, and then (even when small programs are running) it will freeze up. My mouse wont move, no command will respond and i am forced to hold the power button and shut it off.
2nd Problem, occasionally when i turn on the computer it wont boot up. The screen will turn on and stop with a dash blinking in the top left corner, not proceeding to any boot up of any kind, and just recently while i shut it down from this sort of freezing up, little pictures of pixel hearts and dots started appearing until i shut it off. This problem has gone on since i bought this computer from my brother but the pictures havent until this last week .

Recently(about 2 weeks ago), my computer started freezing. It happened 5 times already(one of them occurred as I was typing this post). I wasn't doing anything in particular, just using Firefox to browser the web.

3 of the freezings occurred while I was just browsing, 2 occurred while my computer was starting up. No sites in general either, out of the 3 times I froze, I was on different sites each time(all of them are "known safe ones" too like ign.com, wikipedia, etc).

After the latest freeze(during browsing), I restarted my computer only for my computer to freeze again after 3 seconds(screen stayed the same, it happened right after it showed me my memory test). Then I restarted my computer again and it froze before anything showed up(monitor did not detect anything so the monitor did not show anything).
Here's what I have done so far:

1. I used memtest86 and done 3 full tests, no errors on any tests.

2. Did anti-virus and anti-spyware scan on my computer(I used: Avast, Spybot, Adaware).

3. Checked Windows Event Viewer(unfortunately it didn't log anything).

Here's the last things I did to my computer before I noticed the freezings:
1. I downloaded and installed Secunia PSI.

2. I downloaded and installed the latest version of WinRAR and Quicktime player(recommendations from Secunia).

3. I also installed various security patches from microsoft update.

Besides that, nothing in particular.

I think its something wrong with my computer (but no sure the problem) or it might be something wrong with the graphic card. I can telll the difference between lag of a game and the game just freezing up for no apparent reason.

Hello everyone - I am a new member of the forum and hope that someone reading this might be able to help me with a problem I have with my computer.

In recent weeks the computer screen keeps freezing with the cursor being replaced by the hour glass symbol. This usually happens after several hours' computer usage - but sometimes it occurs soon after the computer is turned on.

When this happens, I am unable to log off; the computer on/off button does not work when the screen freezes and I have to turn the computer off at the mains.

In order to be able to log back into my broadband internet connection I have to turn the computer and and off twice and then on again .

Sometimes when the computer screen image freezes a message box appears always saying "End programme" (i.e. "End programme - CiceroUIWndFrame" or "End programme - mixer").

My computer runs on the Windows XP operating system.

I changed from Internet Explorer browser 6 to 7 yesterday but the problem of the computer screen freezing persists.

Any helpful advice on this would be much appreciated.

A:My computer keeps freezing up

 You've done a lot of the right things, but I'm wondering about temperatures.  I use SpeedFan to check them, but there're others as well.  If the cores get over 50 degrees C, that could be a problem.  Based on the size of your hard drive, I'm guessing your computer is a few years old.  When's the last time you blew compressed gas through the air intake vents to blow the accumulated dust out?  If over 6 months, that's something you really need to do.  Dust builds up inside these things and consequently causes overheating.  That causes things to really slow down, can cause crashes, and worst case can damage circuits.
 
Good luck.

This is where I either turn it off and restart it manually or let it run until it turns itself off, showing me a screen that says that it was idle or was overheating.

Hello:My computer freezes at random times when I'm using it. I can move the mouse, but everything is frozen and i can only restart by cutting power. It seems to happen more often when i use a program or web site that has sound. I ran Micro trend and it says nothing, but sometimes a RAP_Generic comes up and says it has something to do with my sound. I've tried running Micro Trend and Malwearbytes with no help at all.Any help at all would be great.Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 6:21:46 PM, on 7/17/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16850)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\WINDOWS\ehome\ehtray.exeC:\WINDOWS\stsystra.exeC:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Internet Security 14\pccguide.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\DLA\DLACTRLW.EXEC:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\issch.exeC:\Program Files\Lexmark 8300 Series\lxcjmon.exeC:\Program Files\Lexmark 8300 Series\ezprint.exeC:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exeC: ...

Hi Chevy and to all of you.

I have been experiencing a maddening problem of my computer constantly freezing while online. I operate Windows ME and use IE. My email is with Yahoo, but the problem is not confined just to them. In fact this is my third attempt to type this because of the problem.

Guys, I have no idea where to begin to look for the problem and probably wouldn't recognize it even if I could.

Has anyone asked about this before. I would take the time to read all the posts here but... Frozen!

Help... I'm begging you!!

Thanks

Mike

my computer keeps freezing up. i ran the registry clean up and still encountering the same thing

A:Computer freezing up

Registry Cleaners are a hoax. They do nothing good, and may cause problems. Get rid of it immediately.

Check BIOS and post the voltages it reports. Bad power is a common cause of computer freezes. Also run chkdsk.

This morning I noticed a siginificant drop in performance, just about everything would freeze, and I would even have to force restart (push the button on my tower). Things like taskmanager, and the ctrl alt delete menu would also freeze.

I got task manager working at one point, and it said 1% CPU usage, and 27% RAM, yet everything on my computer was freezing.

I'm currently scanning with superantispyware, and malwarebytes antimalware. I also have AVG Free Edition, SpywareBlaster, and Webroot Antivirus.

I have an Asus running on Vista and just recently it it has been freezing up quite frequently and I have no idea why. It seems to happen the most when my screen saver has been on for a while. It freezes to the point where the only way I can restart it is to unplug it. It also froze up a bunch last night while trying to watch an MP4. Could it could possibly be a video card issue since I have it connected to my TV via hdmi? I still don't understand why it started happening just now though. I have checked my drivers and they all seem to be up to date with no exclamations. There are no new programs running at startup and I've updated windows. I also ran virus scans so I don't believe thats an issue. Anyone got any clues?

Couple other things that may be noteworthy but are nothing new to before this started happening:

-I have an external usb mouse connected
-I run mozzila thunderbird with a minimize to tray add-on
-Ive tried switching screen savers but it doesn't seem to matter which one...I only have the windows default savers installed
-It usually happens when I move the mouse after being away for awhile and saver is running

I am only new here so bear with me.

I have been having this problem for a while now. When i am on the internet and click on a couple of links quickly or use the back button a few times the screen freezes . It only happens when i am online not when i am working in any other program. This is happening increasingly so any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hey guys, I am having some issues with my computer and I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I recently bought and installed Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 and afterwards my computer started freezing.

I don't know if it is because I forgot to remove another anti-spyware program that I was using, so it could be conflicting, not sure. Anyways i tried removing it but it is pointless because my computer freezes as soon as the desktop loads up. I even tried starting my computer up in safe mode by pressing F8, but for some reason that option isn't available on my comp. So I am in a pretty bummed out situation. I just wanted some input first because if I take it into a store they usually charge atleast $90 for a freaking diagnostic.

So any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
 

A:Computer freezing?

The real concern is Safe Mode not working!

You may acually have Virus/Spyware infection too (seeming you were updating the AntiVirus program)

Option 1
Boot from Windows CD, go to the Recovery Console command prompt
On the command prompt type: rstrui (You might need to change into windows folder ie CD Windows)

Option 2
Remove the HardDrive and scan it in another computer fully (plus back it up)

Option 3
Repair Windows using the Windows CD again (Note: if Virus/Malware present, sometimes this will fail)

Option 4
Just do a clean install of Windows (losing everything presently on your system

Option 5
Take it to a Computer Repair Shop, for them to do all this!
