Preferred Solution: attempted switch from dcp error after anniversary update ..

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.)

I started getting this error and BSOD after the last major update (Anniversary update?). My PC starts fine and is OK for hours, then suddenly falls over. It never did this before the update.

I have updated all my drivers and also run a scan and repair on the registry using the Registry utility in Advanced System Care, but it's still happening.

What else can I do without just rolling back to a restore point (which would presumably just try to update itself again...)

Thanks,

Ever since the Anniversary Update, I have been experiencing very slow user changes between different accounts. Prior to the update it took 2-3 seconds. Now, when I attempt to switch between different user accounts that are logged in, I timed it at about 18 seconds. During that time, windows is just displaying a black screen.

This may seem like a minor issue to some, but it is very frustrating. I have an HP Spectre X360 and one of the main reasons I paid more for a higher end laptop with an SSD was to be able to perform routine operations with minimal latency.

Does anyone have any insight into this problem?

More generally, how could I go about optimizing my system for fast user account switching? There is lots of advice out there on how to decrease boot time, but I have seen little on how to speed up user switching.

Greetings, I am having issues with Windows Update! First of all when I click the Icon "Windows Update" It actually takes a few moments to get there, which is very unusual! When it does finally come up it shows an "X" on a red shield and says "Check for Updates for your computer - Always install the latest updates to enhance your computer's security and performance" So I click "Check for Updates" and immediately receive an error! "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer." Nope, that doesn't work nor did completely shutting it down. So I opened the Administrative Tools and then Services. Scrolled down until I located Windows Update, and clicked on Start the service. I receive the following error: Windows count not start the Windows Update service on Local Computer. Error 0x8007277a: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized. So I went to Bing typed in the error code and located a Microsoft webpage about the error and started following instructions and ran First the Norton removal tool, then removed AVG then downloaded and ran Windows Update Diagnostic. It did not fix all the issues. Weird that it told me to run in default & aggressive modes, but there was no different modes.

A:Anniversary Update - error 0x800703ee

Hello, I had a similar error after running the windows 10 upgrader app from this link

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...setting_client

but my error message was 0x80070057 after the app had completely downloaded the update and in my search for the answer I found this microsoft answers page and used the elevated command prompt fix

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...6942a71?auth=1

and it simply confirmed the downloads integrity and began installing, now there's no direct evidence why it should work in your case with a different error message but I thought maybe you could try it and see if it helps since its not as major as a registry edit and since it sounds like you still have a working version of the last edition of windows 10.

Im using an internal SSD on a SATA III link in AHCI mode and a google search for just your error code comes up with problems with external storage devices, im a bit tired and cant think of what or where i always see UEFI but i think you were in a similar predicament to my own so here's what i read and listened to to help myself

Hello there, i'm new around here, I've recently encountered a BSOD out of the blue while the PC was idling. So far it only happened once, but I don't want to take any chances.

The affected driver was commonly known as the ntoskrnl.exe, it happened a year back but the affected was associated with some other drivers that I known, so solving it wasn't that hard. But this time it doesn't associate with any other driver ( I may have been wrong ). Anyway, this issue occur right after I've updated the AMD Catalyst Driver, which may be root cause of this issue, but I just gotta make sure.

I've attached my recent dumpfile below, if I've made any mistake on posting, or miss out any information required for debugging, please let me know.

I have a feeling it is something to do with the windows anniversary update and a driver that has been installed (if I had to guess something to do with intel rapid storage technology as I had to have a custom version running before to avoid bluescreens, however I cannot remember the version number and am unsure if windows updated it.)
 
*Edit* Windows has not updated intel rapid storage, it is the same version I was using before.
 
Anyway, it was happening as I was playing Gears 4 and I have attached the perfmon and information asked for within the thread. (also perfmon is showing devices that are not recognised and detected, I am aware of these, one is an xbox 360 controller which does not have drivers and the others are my wireless device which I have disabled as I am using ethernet.)

A:BSOD, cannot peg down what is causing it (Attempted switch from DPC)

Please disconnect the xbox 360 controller from the system and uninstall it's software.The earlier versions of these devices are known to cause BSOD's on some WIndows systems. As for the disabled wireless device - please re-enable it, then update it's drivers.Once the drivers are updated, then feel free to disable it again. Your UEFI/BIOS (version 4206) dates from 2013.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates.  It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them.  The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.Please uninstall the Corsair Link soft...

A:Anniversary update won't install - no error code

Hi, download the ISO manually and create a bootable medium (which is useful in various circumstances).
(How - where- see the Tutorial section or search the net- not difficult).

That way you download once and can retry and have it available for other purposes. Also you avoid issues with Windows update.

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

Disable any AV. Disconnect any devices you don't need. Uninstall any program that affects or modifies your GUI.

Do a clean boot then try the upgrade using the Win 10 DVD/USB.

If it fails again, you can have a look at the log:

Hello everybody.!I would appreciate any help.Started getting BSOD(Attempted_Switch_From_DPC) almost every other day and I've paid attention that this usually happens when laptop is idle.My laptop is a month and a half old and it shipped with 8GB DDR4 ram soldered in MB(  base ram speed is 2666mhz but the real working speed that shown in Task Manager is 2400 because of CPU).So I decided put extra RAM and it turned out that my laptop supports up 48GB RAM so I bought 32GB DDR4 2666 module from Samsung and got 40GB in total.

I don't know if 18 GB is enough space but I have some other advice for you. I don't know if this will completely solve your problem but the Windows10upgrade28084.exe is giving everyone problems. Try downloading the ISO to your desktop and then move it to a USB thumb drive. Uninstall any 3rd part AV and after rebooting do an in place upgrade. That worked for me. Always back up you data or better yet make a full back up of the entire drive if possible. You can search the other forum posts for where to download the ISO and doing an in place upgrade. Don't do a clean install unless you want to reinstall all your app and data.

Windows 10 1511 will not update to 1607 by any method. Updates always complete to 100% then revert. Computer is a Dell Vostro 1720.

Background: The computer never appeared to update automatically, but there was never any error code. I tried to use the Windows 10 upgrade assistant. The upgrade would go through download and install to 100% but then restart back to version 1511 with no error message. Finally, I downloaded the 1607 iso, extracted it to my hard disk, and installed from there. Again the update went to 100% and then reverted back to 1511, but this time it gave the error message 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 "The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation."

I have found several threads about this error, and it seems most likely that there is a driver conflict of some kind. I have looked at the setuperr.log from $WINDOWS.~BT/Sources/Panther/ directory but I do not see what is causing the error. Can anyone help with guidance on this?

Finally i had to disable the intel driver and put the notebook on Microsoft?s generic driver which ended the BSOD. Now i have to live with poor graphics.

I have been attempting to upgrade windows 10 pro, from version 10240 to version 1607 (anniversary update). I have tried both the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant and the media creation tool (ISO). I get to 96% and, boom, every time it resets and restores my system to where it was before the upgrade started. The error I get is as follows:

0x8007042B - 0x4001E
The installation failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during PRE_OOBE operation.

I have searched for an answer and haven't found one. I have tried to trouble shoot it as best I can by unplugging everything but my keyboard/mouse, updated chipset, etc.. MS techs haven't been much help. Any thoughts? The iso is not on the OS drive, not sure if that matter. I would rather not have to nuke the system. I hate having to reinstall programs (adobe is the worst). Any help is appreciated.

Since installing Windows Updates on Jan 2, 2018 my TPYoga 12 has been giving BSOD's when waking from sleep. The message is "Attempted switch from dpc". It happens at least once a day now. Sometimes the next boot is successful, and sometimes it happens a second time after the system tries to reboot which then shows a diagnostic screen. Choosing to boot as normal from that diagnostic screen then does boot successfully. This is on a system running Win10 Pro V1709 build 16299.192.  I have seen one other user with a TPY12 report this recently (see post in german). Looking at many posts regarding this specific message over the years it seems to be related to a driver issue. Given the rather intense troubleshooting instructions for issues like these I'm hoping someone here has found a fix.  Below a screencap of my deteriorated system reliability.

Some more searching led me to this post stating that it's related to the Synaptics touchpad driver. Windows did install four Synaptics items the day before things went bad. I have uninstalled the touchpad driver in Device Manager, re-downloaded the driver package from Lenovo's driver page, and installed it. Let's hope this fixes it, and let's hope Windows doesn't "update" the driver again.  For the record, here are the updates that ran right before the problem appeared:

Hi,

I just downloaded and installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update yesterday and so far I have noticed some changes in my computer that I was not aware of before the update.

(1) Somehow my System Restore was set to Disabled and all of my restore points are now gone and

(2) All of my Microsoft Update History is also missing.

Could the update be the cause of both?

Thanks and regards,

A:Update History missing after Win10 Anniversary Update

Yes, the update is the cause of both.

Major version upgrades like this change so much functionality, they often have to reset various settings to default so that they are in a known good state. Unfortunately, many have complained about the System Restore option being reset to Disabled (this is the Windows default).

As for your previous restore points, that's to be expected. You can't restore to a previous restore point on a previous OS version. All the baseline files are different, and you would be restoring settings for the old OS if you were to somehow be able to restore it.

Think of it like a Bookmark or favorite, but they've moved the location to a different URL. Restoring the old favorite only points you to somewhere that doesn't exist anymore.

As for #2, your update history is gone because again, it's a fresh OS, and previous updates are all integrated into the OS now, not patches. Those old updates don't apply to the new OS anymore.

Hi all,This is my first post: My WIndows XP home edition would not update and then notification that firewall was shut off as well as virus program was missing.I did the following and matters went downhill thereafter.I attemped to boot in safe mode and reset in command prompt sfscannow. That did nothing, then I reassigned the firewall and it turned on but when I rebooted the next day back to square one again. Now my computer will not run in any mode but safemode. I did something the day prior to the issue appearing, I searched regidit registry keys and found a zillion porn sites listed in local machine keys, I deleted these, that is when the problems started. I did some searching and read that spy bot , which I had, leaves these keys as virus protection, had no clue so might have done this to myself..I have run hijack this not sure how to post that log here, it seems clean to me but what do I know...I am just a chef, I saute food not hard drives..or maybe I deep fried it...not laughing...I ran avast no spyware detected, I ran malware bytes, not spyware detected...am at a loss what to do..Also, here is where you can really stop laughing, I have an Acer d250...yes I know a very inferior computer but it is all I have for a few months...it has no CD drive...is a netbook the size of a thimble. so after the new year plan to buy a new computer but at present need to repair this one to tied me over for a few months...I also ran stinger and got no bites on spyware so any ideas???Short...

Alright so I got a new SATA optical drive hooked her up and the motherboard didn't notice it.

So naturally I attempt to update the BIOS on my Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe MoBo from v. 1102 to 1502.

I went into EZ-Flash backed up my current BIOS and installed the new one. Everything seemed fine until Windows tries to boot -immediate restart- then the black screen with boot options(safe mode, normal, last working settings etc...).

I reboot and attempt to change the BIOS back to v. 1102 when it says that it is not "suitable" for the motherboard!

I try again and it just freezes on me before it even gives me the not suitable message.

I waited like 20 minutes and gave it a hard shut down with the power button.

Reboot... and now I just have the black screen with the little blinking underscore in the top-left corner.
HELP!

I originally had a problem similar to the one posted in this thread so I went and tried the fix from that same page. The fix did stop the update failing after the reboot but it apparently broke the rest as it did not clear the data from the system. I am now sitting at around 500 MB of space on the OS drive. I am looking to see if there is any other option other than either a repair reinstall or just a complete format reinstall.

OK, here goes. I recieved an e-mail from Zone labs that an update for my firewall was available. I went to the site to download the update as I have before, yet this time it not only did not update it also seemed to remove my existing version of zone alarm. I am using the free version. I tried to reinstall from zone labs site to no avail, it encountered problems with some existing files. I removed the program from the control panal add remove site, and became concerned that now I had no firewall. So I turned on windows firewall. Now I can't access the internet at all. I turned off windows firewall and still am not able to access the internet.(sorry, using XP with a cable modem) I tried the turn off in sequence and turn back on in sequence tower, modem, router to no avail. My laptop in the livingroom connecting off of the wireless router connects fine, hence this post. can anybody help?

Hello,

As many know, there are millions of machines that still run Windows 10 Anniversery Update. We have the Creators Update released las April and now the Fall Creators Update. Which applies:

1.) Windows 10 users running the Anniversary Update will receive the Creators Update launched last April and than the Fall Creators Update when MS determines that it is ready.

OR

2.) Windows 10 users will jump from the Anniversary Update to the Fall Creators Update when ready from Microsoft.

Or is this answer unknown?

Strange things are happening here on my W10x86 Pro system, and I am worried...

After being shut down for some time, I turned on this computer yesterday Monday, and it finished configuring some updates that it had apparently installed last time I shut it down. When shutting it down on Monday evening, it again goes into installing updates, but looking like it was stuck on 0%. After an hour I just let it sit over night, and this morning it had shut down. Then today when I turn it on in the afternoon, it goes into configuring a big update, before booting up, taking close to 30 minutes and restarting three or four times, showing me this screen
http://blogs-images.forbes.com/anton...w10-update.jpg that I have never seen before.

After the half hour it tells me that it has updated my W10 and there are lots of new exciting things. Naturally I thought that this was the Anniversary Update, so I looked into the Update History, and to my surprise this was entirely empty. "No updates installed yet", it told me.

Then I manually clicked "Check for new updates", and then it finds lots of updates, like "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3176493)" and a whole bunch of other updates all numbered with 1511.

I am baffled here... what goes on?

My friends PC had a few BSODs for some time now. She never bothered to try and resolve the issue, relying on her laptop instead. I though it was her security software (Norton) so i removed that and that BSOD went away. A few weeks later (first week in August, i think) it returned, but the PC wouldn't boot into normal mode without BSOD, only safe mode. I tried to update the bios in safe mode and when it got to the end of the update it just sat there without fully completing. I tried to close the update and suddenly...BSOD. Afterwards, I got a BSOD everytime i tried to boot into normal mode, and a BSOD everytime i tried to access the internet (using Chrome everytime) in Safe Mode. however, if i didn't try to get online and used the PC, it was just fine. I attempted a system restor, which was successful and as of today, my PC will boot into normal mode for about 5 minutes then BSOD; it will boot into Safe Mode and BSOD when I try to use Chrome but not when I use IE. That's all the info i can remember.

Just by the behavior of my PC only BSOD-ing in safe mode when i try to access chrome but not when i use IE, i think it's Chrome, but i wanted some expert help, just to be sure.

I'm not sure where to begin... I guess I should start with the fact that the computer in question is not mine, it is my friends, who is a complete illiterate when it comes to operating anything on the comp (let alone technical questions), so my knowledge of the machine (and what has been done with it) is limited.

The problem we are having is one that seems to be common amongst vista users, looping restart stuck on installing update 3 of 3. I came across this site(many thanks to all of you for your assistance to all of us less knowledgable), and subsequently the microsoft fix here:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949358.

I went with method #2, as I don't have the original OS disc anywhere in sight(and he doesn't know if it came with the machine or not). For some reason, the machine wouldn't start in any form of safe mode, but I was able to revert to a restore point via the "repair your computer" option on the "advanced boot options" page. I chose the most recent restore point, which was a basic scheduled restore point(8-16), and let it do its thing. Restart afterward, and then it wouldn't even begin to boot at all, going directly to the Start-up repair program.

It recomended reverting to a restore point, so I did it again, going back to the furthest point, which was created when SP2 was installed(8-9). Still no luck starting up, right back to the startup repair program. It asked to send a report, which I did, so I browsed throu... Read more

Hello.  my laptop got very slow recently and Internet Explore was acting up and super slow so I decided to remove some HP/Media software I don't use.  After that I found out that Windows 10 was again available for free part of their 10th year Anniversary or something like that. It downloaded, verified the downloaded and asked to restart to install. It was installing fine up until 32% and then came the HP Logo which I didn't think much of but after more than an hour it was still on the HP and no change. I left it like that over night and still no change.  I believe the laptop original OS is 8/8.1 and I can't recall if it was a 32 or a 64 bit.   Please help.

Today I tried to update my Windows 10 insider preview (fast) system to the latest build. During the first attempt I received a BSOD and rollback. After multiple reboots and cleanups (such as removing kaspersky) I was able to do the update again.
The update completed, since I once had the "hi" screens after login, however after a reboot I am not constantly getting the spinning white circle. (left for an hour), no desktop. This is the 2nd stage with blue background, not the initial loading windows flag. I've since rebooted a few times, but ... nothing ...
I booted a windows 10 USB to attempt to run recovery options but received a message that an update was in progress ("it looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media"). I was unable to revert to a previous build, and startup repair didn't help. I can get to the command line but other than copy files there's little else I can do (system is *of course* all backed up anyway to crashplan, and non system drive data looks intact in any case)
Any tips - other than a clean install? perhaps not such a bad thing after over a year of insider builds....

A:Avira refused to update, so I uninstalled and attempted to install Avast! but it failed...

If you uninstalled Avira via Add/Remove Programs only, you might still want to run Avira's uninstall tool to be sure it has 100% uninstalled all tidbits scattered on your drive and in the registry to avoid possible future issues. Here's a link to the uninstall tool download site:http://www.avira.com/en/support/av7_upgrade_tools.htmlAfter running the uninstall tool, Avast probably would have installed OK for you. I run Avast and it sure is quick to notice those remnants of previous antivirus programs during installation. It just thought you might have two AV's on your system------a definite no-no. The AVG, if you're happy with it, could yet encounter problems if there are bits of Avira still in your registry or lurking elsewhere on your pc. I'd definitely run that Avira uninstall tool just to be sure. You might even want to do a search on keyword AVIRA and see if you have any files/folders Avira left, too, and delete them.

Windows tried to install the anniversary update. Downloaded fine - restarted itself with the normal percent completed figures then after restarting got the - 'System Thread Exception Not Handled' message.

Fortunately it auto restored the previous version of Win10 so no big deal. Quick look on the MS site is of little help - if any.

Viewed the Event Log and there are goodness knows how many messages. So I guess I'll wait until the next update. Don't think I'm missing a great deal by giving this one a miss.

Any input appreciated.

Crap! I see "update to Windows 10, version 1607" is available, and will be installed on my computer tonight! Which means, tomorrow:

1. I won't be able to disable the Lock Screen. I will be forced to look at a "pretty picture" before I will be allowed to log on to my own PC.
2. Virtualbox will no longer run. I will not be able to run any of my VMs until I can get some kind of fix from Oracle.
3. I will no longer be able to disable my touchpad. Whenever I am trying to type anything, my cursor will be randomly jumping to different places on my screen.
4. I will no longer be able to access SD cards on my computer. The Card Reader will no longer work.
5. My camera will no longer function.
6. I will no longer be able to have NumLock on by default when Windows starts.

Who knows what other problems I'll discover in the morning. And I have no way to prevent this from happening. Microsoft will force this on my machine, then will do absolutely nothing to help me solve any of these problems. To me, this just doesn't seem right. This is not the way a large, respected American business would treat it's customers.

Is there any advice you can give me?
