Preferred Solution: My pc open file automatically, then automatically shut down

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: My pc open file automatically, then automatically shut down

Boot into System Recovery Options to System Restore to a point before the problem began.

Establish a Clean Boot first and then work through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7, working in Safe Mode if necessary.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Hello-- I have a wordpad file that I would like to automatically open everytime I start or reboot my system. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to do this?? I tried this.... http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-...ically-in-.html But it didn't work as it seems to be for autostarting programs rather then files. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time qand help.

A:Getting a File to Open Automatically

As a matter of fact there is. I just tested it, and got it to work. I however, did it through a program called WinPatrol. http://download.cnet.com/WinPatrol/3000-8022_4-10129149.htmlIt's a free program that basically just monitors, and lets you make changes to your startup, services, active tasks, ect. I don't really mess with msconfig, as it seems very temperamental to me, so if there's a way to do it through that, then I'm not sure what it is. But, if you want to give WinPatrol a try, here's how to do it. Using WinPatrol, under the Startup Programs tab, select 'add'. Choose 'all files (*.*)' from the drop down menu. Locate the document that you want opening on startup. Hit open, make sure it's now in your startup list, and you're done. Simple. If you're not willing to use WinPatrol, or a similar program, then I'm not sure how it'd be done. I checked Msconfig, but I'm not sure. I don't like messing with it, personally. I'm a fan of WinPatrol as it really seems to idiot proof things for me. In fact I'm planning on upgrading to the pay version eventually. Hope this helps you . Good luck.

Sorry if the title doesn't make sense. I'm trying to use Comical to add a shortcut that when opened will automatically open a directory. I'm not sure but I think it might have something to do with 'Start In' field under Properties. I have tried searching for this but have found nothing. Thanks in advance for any help.

Is it possible for Internet Explorer 9 to automatically open a file for a given filetype/extension? Previous versions would do this.

For example, every time I click a .PDF file to download, the yellow bar opens on the botton saying "Do you want to open or save xxx.pdf... from website.com". My .PDF are associated with Adobe Reader (Open With..always), yet it keeps asking to open it. Same thing with other file types like .ICA for citrix access, .docx for Office etc.

I am in desperate need of assistance and guidance. I have good reason to believe I have a virus or that I have been hacked in some way.

Some Symptoms:
1. WiFi is set to off, but comes on automatically
2. Once WiFi comes on, it brings up the dialog box to open a file
3. My open brower (Firefox) also closes automatically
4. In IE I get a dialog box that pops up asking me to enter a term to search for a file.

I have run virus scans several times to no avail. I have Microsoft Security Essentials.

I am noticing that when I click to open a folder in the File Explorer, the folder automatically opens in a new window.

Then if I click on another folder or file, that automatically opens in a new window as well and so on. It is annoying to have to keep closing windows.

I cannot locate how to change that behavior back to where I had it where it only opened in another window if I clicked for it to do so and not by default.

I am not seeing that as an option in the menus.

Any suggestions or advice here?

Hi sunrise12,
you can certainly turn that off, go to any folder or file and press "alt", then press T (Tools) and then press O (Folder Options), this is your folder options, the first thing you come to is this :

select "open each folder in the same window", apply and click ok and that should fix this for you.

I currently use Excel 2007 and I am working on a template with a link to an Excel database file. For example, C:\China\Template.xlsx (File 1) has links to a file C:\China\Data.xlsx (File 2). When I open these files together, File 1 is updated with File 2 as it should be. But if I open a different database file C:\Brazil\Data.xlsx (File 3) first and then open C:\China\Template.xlsx (File 2), this file automatically links to the open File 3. It automatically links to the open database file because it has the same name? Even though the files are not from the same folder? I tested this on Excel 2003 (and has functioned correctly to where the template file only links to the correct database from a specific folder - even if other databases are named the same) and it didn't automatically redirect the links to the open a file even if the database files are named the same. I am not sure if there is a setting in Excel, but fiddling around with automatic updates does not change it. A big problem is that if the template file is saved it is saved with the redirected source file.

Could you please help me...I don't know how to fix the settings in Excel 2007.

I have a new DELL, Inspiron Notebook, E-1505, 80 GB HD, 1 GB memory, 166Mhz, Duo Core with DELL installed Win. XP Media Center 2005, OE, Word Perfect Office 12, Trend Micro PC-cillin Anti-Virus.
I go through the normal routine of Turn Off Computer by first closing down all open programs, disconnect from Internet/ISP, click on Start, Log Off, Turn Off Computer and on the next window in blue, I click on Turn Off Computer. The monitor then displays the usual, Log Off, Saving Your Settings and Windows Is Shutting Down. However, Windows NEVER automatically shuts down with the screen going blank. I let it go for 6 hours one day and it still displayed, Windows Is Shutting Down. After 30 secs. I must press the power button to shut down the computer. With my former Dell desktop, XP Home, it always shut down automatically when I clicked on the blue and final, Turn Off Computer.
A Dell.com support tech. put me through a lot of diagnostic checks and declared that my hardware was working perfectly and the problem was probably software which is not covered by warranty. I do not want to pay Dell a fortune per minute for a solution.
Does anyone have a SAFE, free, solution for this problem? If not, I'll continue to press the power button to shut down. Thanks, John

What do you mean by Avast does not work? Does it update or scan at all?

Also having two anti virus programs can make the system unstable. After you uninstall Avast see if kaspersky internet security still works mainly the anti virus updates.

I went on safe mode and did the scanning, all went well and I did system restore because I was in a panic. I went to my game and my stuff were gone so I knew there was a hacker. I went to sleep and thought all night about the hacker stealing my personal info. So I havent turned on the comp. for a day and wrote this kn my phone."After the system restore, my advanced systemcare said my computer was at bad health so I scanned malware, AVG , and ASC."Then nothing happened but I turned off my computer just to be secure.

Even if the Download hasn't finished when it shuts down, it will continue when you next boot up.

Hope this helps

Please let me whether any other problems occur in my system.

May be a hard drive problem so you should test it with diagnostic software available from the hard drive manufacturer. The links are here: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

You will need to download the DOS version of their diagnostic software since Windows will not run. Create a CD with the downloaded ISO file & boot the PC from it.

You will need this Windows utility to create the CD from the ISO file:

A:Programs automatically shut down

You have Bitcomet.exe in your system.
Does your Grisoft program can make a full scan of spywares in your computer?

Just an idea...

Ok, I sure hope someone out here knows where I overlooked... I hope someone can either tell me my conclusion is right or wrong. Please, if I am wrong I hope you can steer me in the right direction.

Problem: At first the computer would come on, but sudden vibrations like hitting the table or even a load shout would turn it off.
Friend gave me the computer and showed me what was happening and asked me to fix it. Now all I normally do is search out and destroy viruses and spy ware and run a few reg fix programs. I've built my own computer but I have never come across this problem before

Here is what I have done so far:

1. I tested the power supply. First I just put one of mine in his computer and at first thought problem solved until I deliberately bumped the table and poof, the computer shuts down.

2. Ok, so he is a smoker and this thing is NASTY. So I clean everything with my coffee filter pads (they don't leave any lint or fuzz) are coming back black and dark brown. Very gross. I cleaned the connectors well thinking if this thing is that nasty, well it just might not be getting a good connection, hence the bumping and shutting off. I also checked the capacitors while I was at it and they look great.

3. There could have been a heat sink problem and the cpu is overheating, kind of explains the accelerated rate of failure. So I get my tube of artic silver 5, compliments of a buddy also baffled by this monster, and go to town. The cpu actual... Read more

A:Big problem, PC will not/will shut off automatically

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Looks like you`ve tried all the right things.

It has to be either a loose connection/component, a dodgy start switch or a short somewhere.

You could try taking everything out of the case and building it on a piece of cardboard. That would rule out a short with the case.

If that doesn`t help, then I agree with your assessment that it`s either the psu or mobo. Try another psu and see if that helps.

Take a look at this thread HERE, before you replace the PSU.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

My computer will not shut down at all. It automatically re-starts after shutting it down. I thought that if I upgraded from Win 98 to Win XP, it would fix the problem, but it keeps on happening. The only way to shut it down is by turning off at the power point. What can I do to fix this?

So far no talk over at eightforums.com, so I figured that I would come here.

Anyway, I usually leave my computer on for the remainder of the day, and shut it down at night. I went to town for a little while, and when I got back the computer had automatically shut itself down. I am guessing it was crash related.

So, can someone here have a look at my crash dump?

Last night I was looking for audio clips of Simpsons characters (...yes, the TV show). I found a few sites and downloaded some very short clips.

With one site, I noticed something happened similar to other virus problems in the past. Some type of small error type window came up and I noticed a link to system 32. Shortly afterwards, my PC shut down automatically and has been doing so since.

I've run AVG and Spyware Sweeper with no theats found.

Any suggestions? I'm on another PC now to view responses.

I assume you are talking about this happening at shutdown? If so, you can also do the following:
 
For these two, if the dword value indicated does not exist, create it:
 
Double click on the WaitToKillAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 2000
 
Double click on the HungAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 1000
 
Reboot

Dear all,

I hope this post finds you doing fantastically!

The reason of this communication is kindly as for your advice on a task I have to do and I don?t know where start looking for information? I know that this is a tremendous abuse of your time, but if you have chance to share your comments with me, they?ll be very much appreciated! Thank you!

What I need to do is turn on a Windows 7 computer every hour for about five minutes and then turn it off again automatically; while the computer is on I have to run a macro. The cycle described before has to be repeated 24 hours, so, the computer is automatically turned on, it automatically runs the macro and when the macro ends, it goes off again 24 times per day. When I say ?turn off? I mean, either turn off the computer or send it to a low energy consumption state like hibernation or sleep? Basically I know how to automatically turn off the computer and turn it on once per day using the BIOS setup, but I don?t know how to do this several times in a day automatically and then call the macro every time? I don?t even know if it is doable :S

Thank you in advance for all your comments guys!

Cheers,

A:How can I start and shut down my computer automatically several times per day?

Check your computer's manual to see whether it supports "Wake on LAN" or "Wake on alarm" or similarly-named features. These are features of the hardware rather than of Windows, and not all PCs will have them. If your PC supports Wake-on-Alarm then its simply a matter of setting the alarm in the BIOS or UEFI settings (the manual should tell you how to do this.) Wake-on-Lan depends on another PC on your network sending a special "wake up" message to your PC.Shutting down automatically will be rather simpler. The simplest way would be to create a scheduled task that runs a batch file containing a command like:shutdown /h /t 0The above command, if run from a command-line or in a batch file will hibernate (/h) the PC after a zero second countdown (/t 0). Other options for this command include /s (full shutdown) and /l (log off the current user). A batch file is a plain-text (e.g. using Notepad) file whose name ends in .cmd rather than .txt.Another option I found, but haven't used and can't vouch for, is this tool which seems promising: http://dennisbabkin.com/wosb/
