Q: Windows 7 Freezes - Explore Freezes - Internet White Screen

When I try to go into windows Explore to copy or delete files Explore freezes but it does not crash and speed is incredibly slow. Many times Freezes but I can X out. Internet Explorer works but mainly Black and White background as ALL areas in the sites I visit I cannot see the color coded prompts. This just happened. I was using Microsoft Essentials but that even froze. Now I have Kapersky trial but that did not find any viruses or malware after scanning. Any suggestions please? Thanks - DennisM

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.)

Computer covers whole screen with either white, or white with black, and blue stripes. Multiple times a day.?
This computer was bought in 2005, (HP Media Center PC). Within the second week this freezing(it freezes, and the screen has a white or white with black and blue stipes) occured( yes second week, my brother was uninformed and thought it was normal and didnt return it. It happened often enough as to save anything you were working on every ten to twenty minutes on a bad day. It settled and slowly became less of a problem, then stoped. One day he got a virus and had to restore the computer, the freezing started up again. same as last time, it settled then stoped, a month later, i recieved this computer as a hand me down, as my brother went to college and got a MAC. That was in mid summer of 2008, a week and a half ago, i got a huge virus, i restored my computer, and the freezing started up again, after not doing it once for over a year. It has gotten as bad as freezing every 30 minutes some nights. And earlier today it froze, i turned off and on my computer, went down stairs, and when i came back it was frozen again. I had not even used and program. Please help if you have any idea whats wrong!
Things to keep in mind...
-It only happened after the computer was restored, or bought(ish)
-Its not a normal freeze where you see the programs on the screen still, the screen goes completely white, or white with black and blue stripes.
-4 years old

Thanks!

A:Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

Then maybe it isn't freezing at all. Maybe there's a problem with your monitor, vga cable, or video card.

Try a different monitor/cable and see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, then try reseating the video card--if any--and if that doesn't work I suggest getting a cheap one from someone's old pc at least to test with.

Installing a new video card can be complicated, but google search for a guide or follow the setup instructions for the video card to the letter and you'll have no problems.

Let us know what's going on, we love to help here... it's like an addiction, but we can stop anytime... really we can.

Hi i don't know if this is the right place to post this but i need some advice about my computer. Whenever i use my computer after it hasn't been used for a while when i open it it gets a white line across the top of the screen. Then my screen freezes up and my screen goes funny. The only way i can get it to work again is to hook it up to an external monitor. When the screen finally clears up and i unplug the monitor it starts working good again. Do you have any ideas about why my computer would be doing this? Any help would be appreciated.

My computer is a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop with x86/x64 and is running Windows 7 for operating system. It is my 1st windows 7 computer. The problem began several weeks ago when I was in Facebook playing Castle Age. Thew entire screen turned a milky white and it stayed frozen that way for a minute or so, but came back with no apparent change. Since I wasn't downloading anything, I wondered if I had gotten a Trojan or other virus from Facebook, as I had read about such things recently.
So immediately I began AVG, Ad-aware and Malwarebytes, leaving the computer running until evening. No viruses were found. I wanted to be sure, so I downloaded spy-bot from cnet.com (the only place i will download a program unless it is directly from the manufacturer.
Several days later, I became determined to win a particular battle and found that castle age's "washing machine" animation telling the site was working, could be stopped sometimes, speeding the action, by clicking more often. My computer responded like lightning! I was so pleased at my purchase!
As the days went on though, the white screen popped up more often and the "hold" or "freeze" action would extend a little, until it was like a minute long. I started to tell friends in chat and they said there was a virus that was downloading with "gifts" from the other players.
All of the sudden, I started to receive emails saying I had been sending out links to porn sit... Read more

A little something before I begin, I have an old Acer laptop, Windows XP and the screen is all ******, so I use a monitor to view the screen.

And this afternoon I was using my laptop and all was fine until there was a short circuit, all the appliances in the house was shut down.

3 hours later when I turned on my laptop the screen started acting up. One particular problem is my cursor, it had black and white stripes, and I never heard this happened before. Next is my screen which freezes very frequently and then it goes black and goes back to normal. This is getting annoying and I have no idea what is wrong. I did a system restore to yesterday's date and to no avail, nothing was changed. Freezing screen, blinking screen and black and white cursor.



Please help? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

While using my Gateway laptop it will frequently fade white and freeze. This problem is sporadic at times and constant other times. I cannot figure out a pattern to the problem. I am unclear whether this is a software or harware problem. All I really know is that it is really annoying. I am wondering if anyone out there could help me diagnose this problem. Sometimes, faded white lines appear on the screen and become more intense, depending on the amount of time it is frozen. The problem can last anywhere from a second to almost a minute. When it fades you can still see the the monitor picture kind of, but like I said it is blurred. Someone please help!

Greetings to all,
I have this annoying screen problem that has finally taken its toll on me. While doing anything online (Google, Email, Surfing etc) my computer screen will freeze and then go a white translucent color.
It happens across the board on anything I may be working on.
If I am in Google, and I'm also checking email, or working on an Excel Sheet, all 3 things will freeze and go white.

I have attached my HijackThis Log, as well as the DDS and Attach txt.
Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed to help me solve this annoying problem.

The freeze usually lasts a minute sometimes 2...and as you can imagine, when you're working at a frantic pace, having to stop and start is really annoying.
I have run all my antivirus software (AdAware, AVG, CCleaner) but nothing fixes it.

Hope someone can offer some help.

I am running MS Win XP SP2 on a Dell GX745 Intel Core 2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40 GHz with 2 GB ram.

Starting this afternoon I have had a problem that when I right click on the start button, or on a file in a folder, explorer.exe hangs. I can end process on it, then run explorer.exe and it comes back and works fine. Except for the right clicking. This has also started affecting Outlook as I can not right click on a email and print.

I have tried restoring to a previous point twice, first time yesterday, 2nd time Monday. I have ran IOBit Advanced Windows Care as well as CCcleaner. Spy sweeper did not find anything, and neither did AVG free.

Someone please help as this is driving me bonkers!

A:right click freezes explore.exe and outlook.exe

Hi tdawgnok and welcome to TSF !

That could happen if there's a problem with one of the programs that's integrated in the shell (meaning a corresponding action appears in the right-click menu).

Do you remember installing anything new before the problem started ?

Go to start => run and type eventvwr.msc. See if there are errors happening when explorer.exe crashes in the application or system subsections. Double-click the error, click on the third button on the right (this copies the information in the memory) then right-click => paste it here. See if the error messages mention a given driver, dll or .exe file (other that explorer.exe).

Repeatedly press F8 at startup and choose safe mode in the menu that will appear. See if the problem also happens there. If it doesn't happen in safe mode then restart in normal mode. Go to start => run and type msconfig. The program that manages the right-click item that causes explorer to crash should be listed under the startup tab. Use BleepingComputer's startup item database to know what each item does and try unticking the ones related to programs you don't need or installed recently.

You can also use Autoruns by Sysinternals. Go to the explorer tab and look at the items listed under HKLM\...\ContextMenuHandlers

Alternatively you can use Nirsoft's ShellMenuView to manage the right-click context menu :

A:Internet Explorer Freezes When Started & Firefox Freezes/crashes On Some Websites

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer. One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan. You have a very severely infected system -- likely because of the lack of antivirus & firewall software.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can clean this machine but I cannot guarantee it will be 100% secure afterwards.

If that doesn't happen, the screen will freeze up and I get the message "display driver has stopped working and has recovered successfully". All the BSODs have to do with 0x01 memory management.

Most of these were cuased by your video driver (or card)

I would re-install using this method and the newest version you can find.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Or Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

I upgraded my system 1 month ago, but I didn't achieve a stable configuration. New componets are MB, CPU, RAM and SSHD. I have suspects on PSU even nominal power should be ok.

---PC Configuration:

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel Core i7-4770K
Asus Z87-K
KHX2133C11D3K4/16GX Kingston HyperX (4x4GB) Memory
Ati Radeon HD5850
Crucial MX100 2.5" 256GB SATA III Solid State Drive
PSU Modular Power Supply ATX 700W
keyboard logithech usb wireless
mouse advent wireless
---Symptoms:

Immediately after the boot, the graphic card fan starts increasing speed and then the system freezes. If I disable and re-enable the graphic card, fan stops overunning immediately and run normally; the system freezes later, randomly.
After 3-4 hard resets, the system asks me to restore the system. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

After downgrading the graphic drivers, the system appeared stable for some days. But now it started again freezing in a different way: rather than increasing the card's fan speed, the graphic card starts flickering. It stops if I disable and re-enable the graphic card, but it starts again after few minutes and the system freezes.

Freezing mechanism: explorer stops responding, but the mouse pointer is still working. After 20-30 seconds mouse freezes as well. It happens randomly in idle state, using google chrome or ... Read more

A:Windows 7 64 bit freezes after few minutes. Explorer hangs and then freezes.

Unless the new hardware you fitted is almost identical to the old, which I doubt, you should do a clean install of Windows. The main reason is the drivers from the old stuff are still around and are messing things up.

EDIT : and welcome to TSG.

Have a Toshiba Satellite from 2010.
Programs are freezing and am getting white, blank screens on the programs.

Programs often "blend into each other." That is, may have Firefox open and a Word document blends into the browser.

The computer freezes and can't do anything, so have to force shut down.

Also, short after starting programs after start-up, often get "program not responding."

Wanna find a way to stop this erratic behavior.

IRQL_not_Less_or_Equal
Downloaded SpeedItUp Free to optimize hard drive and defrag, but it never makes it through the 3 hrs. of scanning before getting runtime errors, and the program shuts down.

After running Spybot Search & Destroy in Safe Mode, was able to complete it.
And have run since.
No issues found.

Also ran the defragging that comes with the laptop.

Am running Windows Defender now.

Have also ran AVG Antivirus.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi DougOh,

Let’s try few troubleshooting steps to check if issue gets resolved:

1. Try a clean boot to check if it would work, providing the link to do a clean boot for reference: How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista or Windows 7
2. Go to safe mode and check if you get same error message. Please use the following link for detailed instructions to go safe mode: Safe Mode
3. Also follow the steps in the below given link and check if it helps: Log on process has failed to create the security options dialog - - Microsoft Community
4. You can configure the windows to ensure that minidump files are created, please follow the steps mentioned in the link: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD - Windows 7 Forums
5. With this information we can help: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
6. Also, run the built-in diagnostics provided by the manufacturer on the computer to check if the hardware is working fine.

Please post back the results.

Hey everyone, I seem to have a recurring problem that I just can't puzzle out on my
own and need some help here.

A few months ago I had to replace my power supply unit, and at the same time decided to
upgrade my RAM and OS (moving from Windows Vista to Win 7).
Before I was running on 1 gig of DDR2 PC2-5300 667 MHz. I updated it to PNY 4 gigs
(also DDR2 PC2-5300). Computer kept restarting so I brought it down to 2 gigs - things
worked ok for a little while and then I started to have similar problems again. My PC
continually restarts itself randomly, Displays the Blue Screen after an hour or so of
operation and constantly freezes on the starting Windows 7 logo screen.
I have absolutely no clue where these issues could be coming from. All of the RAM seems
to be accurate spec wise and I don't believe the Power Supply to be at fault. Also, this is more recently, whenever I try to sync up my iPod with iTuens, my system also decides to restart itself randomly during the sync. Any help
on the issue would be GREATLY appreciated.

Below are additional PC specs:

- OS Windows 7 ultimate 32bit
- CPU, Intel Core 2 - (2) of them at 2.13 GHz
- 2 Gigs PNY RAM
- (any additional specs needed - please let me know!)

I'm out of ideas here; any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, few days ago I upgraded my windows to windows 10, however after using it for few days I found out that there are some issues and windows 8.1 is more stabler on my laptop so I decided to downgrade it to windows 8.1 ( where I was in the first place). I followed the instruction that windows provided and it seemed working fine, so I waited, after few min it finished downgrading, and brought me back to windows 8.1 lock screen ( to be specific, windows 8.1 starting screen just before actual lock screen. where I press any keys or click and It disappear.) so as usual I try click but it didnt work, even key board didnt work, so I cant move to the lock screen where I put my password in, at first I thought it was a problem with my laptop but I was able to force shutdown by pressing and holding power button, I was also able to change the brightness and go in to safety mode (which means my keyboard and mouse pad is perfectly fine), I tried refreshing pc which I was able to find inside troubleshooting option on safety mode. however when I try to refresh the pc It said " additional free space is needed on the drive where windows is installed." so I cant access my pc, how can I make a free space? is there anyways to make a free space in safety mode? and is there other solution for this freezing problem? please help...

A Linux CD (Live CD) will likely allow you access to your Windows drive, without being in Windows. Provided you know what you're doing with Linux?should be relatively simple as you won't have to install anything, simply load the CD and access the HDD, deleting only the files you don't need. You can also use a USB device with Linux on it, if you lack a CD and ability to burn an ISO. Failing that, an NTFS-supported (assuming you're not using FAT32), MS-DOS style tool via disk, USB, or CD would work, but not everyone has that. I'd pursue the Linux root. (any version of Linux should, in thoery, work, but one of the easiest to use would probably be Linux Mint with the KDE desktop environment. If you download Linux, be sure to get the right bit?32-bit or 64-bit, as appropriate for your machine.

Windows Xp Freezes At Welcome Screen

I recently added an additional Hard Drive to my system, I installed Windows XP on the drive and it seemed to work fine. My other hard drive had Windows XP also. Unfortunately the old hard is failing periodically. So time to remove it right?

I didn't think this would be much of a problem since I have another HDD with OS on it. But if i take out the old drive the new drive seems to boot fine gets to the Windows XP Splash screen, it goes black (quicker than normal but still the disk still ticks over), then the screen comes up there's a dark blue header and footer on the screen with a light blue body in the middle and a Microsoft Windows XP Logo on the screen.

Normally, under this there's white writing which says "Windows is starting up" and then it goes to the screen to tell me to logon, but instead it freezes at the blue screen with the Windows XP Logo on it. All HDD activity stops. I can ALT+TAB and find that there are 2 things running called "Log on to Windows" and "Windows Logon", as soon as I ALT+TAB into "Windows Logon" the PC's frozen for good.

Can you boot into safe mode?

Windows XP

If Windows XP is the only operating system installed on your computer, booting into Safe Mode with these instructions.

* If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
* Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
* Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
* Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
* Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
* When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

It's too late now but FYI.

Hi,

Today morning when i tried to switch on my PC, it hangs on the Win 8 boot screen. At times it would give me the BSOD of Machine_Check_Exception while hung at boot. At times it tries to do an Automatic repair as well, but freezes again on the boot screen itself with it below saying "Preparing Automatic Repair"

I also see an error PCI IRQ Routing Table Error - 07 1F 00 just before boot.

I would have to restart like 10-20 times or maybe more for it to get through to windows. I thought it was a windows issue so i tried to boot into my Win 8 and Win 7 USB's so i could format and reinstall but it Doesnt let me Boot into the USB after i select the option to do so. It would take my straight to my current Win 8 install Boot screen and hang there.

Since a few days now, my system would not shut down when i would click on shut down. The screen would go off and all but my Desktop cabinet would still be on. It used to restart fine when required but that doesnt work now too. I have to switch off the mains to get it to shut down so i can restart.

The red LED's on my mobo dont stop at the CPU, RAM, Video card and forgot whats the last one for. So is this a windows issue? A hardware issue? and how do i fix this?

I havent made any hardware changes to the system. Ive tried to boot with just the monitor plugged in to the system and same issue.

I have reset my BIOS. I cant get into safe mode or boot from USB.

Hey guys, I have had this problem for quite some time ever since i built my new computer with parts i bought from newegg. I would really appreciate any sort of advice on the subject. It seems like ever since the first xp pro installation i made on this computer i have had nothing but problems. every time i turn on my computer, i see normal computer information before the windows screen, when the windows screen comes, the loading bar freezes at a certain point. It will sit at that point until i restart the computer by the button on the tower. Once it happens once, it will continue to happen until i reinstall windows using the cd. After i reinstall, it will boot up fine, but next time i restart my computer it starts all over. It is starting to get annoying. That everytime i boot up my computer it requires installing windows over again. I was curious if its a bad windows cd? or maybe some of my hardware is defective? Im at work atm so i dont have my computer specs handy but ill edit this post and add them when i get home. Any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Hi there,

since a couple of days I have a pretty annoying problem with my Samsung Chronos laptop. I am running Windows 7 Professional (SP 1) x64 on it.

When I try to boot it normally Windows freezes right after the Login-Screen on the Welcome-Screen. When I shut it down hard and start it again Windows is booting correctly after 1 or 2 attempts but much slower then before when I didn't have this problem.

So I tried Startup Repair which couldn't find any problem and a similar possibility provided by Samsung ( the Windows Version I'm using was pre-installed) just leaded to a Blue Screen so I had to go back to a Recovery Save Point.

It's ALWAYS booting correctly in save mode thats why I thought one of the "additional" services which are started during the boot sequence are causing this problem.

So then I tried to find out which service is causing the problem with msconfig.
At the moment I have all services in the Service Tab enabeld and d all services in the Startup Tab disabled.
When I'm booting Windows like that it is working but I just can't figure out which one of these startup services is causing the problem.
I tried to enable just the Microsoft Security Client which was working. If I was also enabling the Java Auto Uploader it freezed. So I went back to just enabling the Microsoft Security Client but it was freezing again.
Just if I disable all startup services it is always working.
So it's kind of hard to reproduce the error and be sure if a ... Read more

You don't need any of the Startup Services except MSE which is listed there in your screenshot. See if it works OK with only that.

In addition finish establishing a Clean boot and check it over good from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Be aware that the Samsung preinstalled Win7 is a corrupt install to begin with, larded with blaotware and useless duplicate utiltiies that have better versions built into Win7. This is why most tech enthusiasts choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

things i've already tried:

- safe mode (same thing happens).
- reset bios to defaults.
- ran chkdsk /r from windows cmd prompt
- ran sfc /scannow (don't have the xp pro cd which it wants, i only have an xp home cd.
- removed all viruses, adware and spyware.

since i don't have the o/s cd for this computer, i can't just re-install the o/s. does anyone have any ideas on how i might be able to fix this problem?

Hi newreel !

Try with a new user account and see if it goes faster. If so, then use the information from this link to copy your profile from your old account to this new one :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811151

Else, make sure you have all the latest drivers for your hardware and all the latest critical updates from Windows update.

If you have recovery disks - or if you can create them using the preinstalled Recovery CD creator (sometimes in PC help & Tools) that usually comes with HP computers - or if there's an i386 foder somewhere on the drive then you can use this workaround to use SFC without the install CD :

( The loading screen has never happened to me before, i thought it would be helpful if i mentioned i had my hal.dll missing before it happened ).

And i was presented with this problem, i have tried fixMBR and taking my disks out of my computer when i started it, i have also dusted my cmputer clean, is there anyway i can fix this without completly reformating my computer?

Also if there is anything lse you need to know please ask, I would like to get this fixed as soon as possible

I recently bought a Samsung EVO 840 120 gb SSD and did a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro on it. Also formated my other HDD's. And after that I started to experience at random times the complete freeze of windows and sometimes blue sceen of death with "clock watchdog timeout" message. They usually happens when I unpacking an archive, during file copy, downloading big files, istalling mods in nexus mod manager for skyrim or sometimes just in very random events. I noticed that usually when this happens hdd activity led on my pc case blinks continuously. When this freeze or BSOD happens I need to manually reset my computer. This problem is starting to get really annoying. Please can someone tell me how to fix this?
(Also most of the archives I download from the internet I get crc errors for most when I try to unpack them, so I have redownload it again :/)

Hello,

It seems that when I fix something, another thing just goes wrong.

I reformatted my computer with Windows XP Pro and everything worked perfect in the beggining. It is a 1G Ram because its about 2 years old and I had it built from scratch so it is not a manufactured computer like Dell, or HP or things like that.

I dont know what could be the problem, every 10th or 12th time give or take I get to the welcome screen it freezes when it says windows is starting up or when I click my username and put in a password... it says loading applications and it just freezes,

My mouse cursor moves and all, but windows never loads... so in turn I have to restart the computer untill It loads.... this time it took 2 restarts because it froze both times at the welcome screen.

Is there something wrong with my configurations???

Here is a highjackthis log just in case... I use NOD32 Antivirus, AVG Antispyware and SUPERAntiSpyware and I cleaned every spyware with those programs... I wonder what it could be????
