Explorer Crashes After 10 Minutes of Turning On Computer

Q: Explorer Crashes After 10 Minutes of Turning On Computer

hi
i'm going to make this quick before my computer crashes again

basically my taskbar stops responding and i can't bring up the task manager to perform any functions and my apps perform very slowly even though the processor is only working at less than 20%, but if i bring up the task manager before the crash happens i can turn off explorer.exe and have the applications work normally without explorer but my internet does not work any more

i don't know if it's related but recently my firefox browser just keeps crashing and then asking me if i want to restart (it does this about 3-4 time before i can actually use it)

i try to run anti-virus but when the taskbar stops responding everything else stop so i can never get through a scan, so i don't know if it's a virus or something similar, which is why i'm posting it here

please can you help

thanks

Preferred Solution: Explorer Crashes After 10 Minutes of Turning On Computer

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.)

My computer keeps freezing with the explorer.exe file, can someone help?
My explorer.exe file crashes frequently on windows. It seems to happen when i 'do things'. For example, opening up a program, or moving a window, or even double clicking on something or opening up a game. It happens alot if i open up large directories such as my documents or programfiles.

The taskbar goes black and i have to wait a few minutes till it restores itself to normal, i created another user account, but the same thing happens on both.

If i use task manager to open up explorer.exe, then go to a folder with many files and folders inside, e.g. My Documents, it crashes and i have to end the explorer process then restart it and wait.

I can still open up explorer, and go to program files or desktop, and i can use alt tab to move between programs, but it gets very frustrating when explorer keeps crashing.

I have restarted many times, and now I dont know what to do.


How can i fix this, it has just started out of the blue, and i am sure that it is not malware.

Im running Windows XP Pro, 1gb ram, Intel Dual Core

I booted up in safe mode, no problems with explorer, but the sfc /scannow does not work, It gives the error 0x000006 ba [The RPC server is unavailable]

I am in safe mode with networking right now.


Here is a HijackThis log if it helps:

Starting yesterday, every few minutes a message comes up that windows explorer has stopped working, then restarts. I've run a sfc /scannow (cbs.log below). Within the cmd.exe it says that "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them".

I've run a dskchk /f which did not resolve the issue.

I've run malwarebytes (free version) which found no issue.

In safe mode the popup doesn't appear, but the start and shortcut bar flickers out for a few seconds and returns, similar to in regular mode.

First of all:
1. This computer has NO VIRUSES and NO WAREZ and NO INTERNET EXPOSURE.
2. This is not a laptop.
3. My Brother from Michigan sent it to me by mail, and I am guessing that is the reason this computer is so ****ed up.

Ok, well this is a very expensive computer (would be able to play half life 2). And well, after my brother sent me it (by mail), it seems to act like a god damn 80 GB Ipod (low battery life in under 1 hour etc.....). But of course, I plug in the device with all sorts of computer cables, and the same results happen. After a few minutes the god damn computer turns off!

When I set it to 115 V this happens!
(BUT I HEAR A REPETITIOUS BEEPING NOISE)

So I set it to 230 V and well the BEEPING miraculously disappears! But then the monitor doesn't turn on.

*****!!!!!!! I am so mad!!!!!! And I am not a computer genius.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME WHY HE SENT IT BY EMAIL. IT WAS MY REQUEST and WELL I WAS SUCH A DUMB*** FOR TELLING HIM TO DO THAT.

Can somebody help me resolve this?
Do I need a new powerbox?
 

A:My Computer Keeps On Turning Off After 1 Minute to 30 Minutes of Power On.

setting the wrong voltage on the PSU will fry your system.
NEVER mess with voltage settings. If you're lucky - all you will have to replace is the PSU. Please do not CURSE in techspot. Not only is it a sin, but some (like myself) find it offensive.

I have recently done a system restore to a factory state. After reinstalling all of the programs I noticed that right after restarting my computer it actually is pretty fast, which can be especially seen by rght clicking on desktop or opening folders. However, few minutes after running it suddenly slows down simple things like right clicking on the desktop make me wait few seconds. Right now my computer has been running for few minutes already and I can see the text lagging a little as I type.
I have Avast, and I did a quick scan with malwarebytes just to make sure, but it didn't detect anything.
When I check the task manager I noticed that before it starts lagging, the CPU is below 10% if im not doing anything and even when when using some programs its pretty much always below 60%, however after it starts lagging, it jumps to 100% if I do as simple things as right click. I disabled most start up programs, but it didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.

***UPDATE***
I began to suspect overheating and so I decided to clean out the fan. So far no problems with lag anymore. ^^

Has anyone encountered anything of this sort?

About every 12 minutes or so, I have the explorer crash. The symptoms are "only" a refreshing of the taskbar and the disappearance of many - but not all - of the tray icons. The logs of these crashes - about 1000 so far, for the last few days - state "The system shell stopped unexpectedly and explorer.exe was restarted". They're listed as "source: Winlogon; no category; event identifier: 1002", with nothing in the hex dump. It's beyond infuriating. I tried every fix I could find, ran windows update, sfc, Norton's regscan (I won't even mention the regular AV and spyware scans), but nothing even decreased the regularity of this. I even installed the dreaded SP2, and it fixed nothing (just slowed down the system considerably).

The crashes seem to happen for no reason at all - I could be browsing online (from Firefox, obviously), watching something, running NASA's Worldwind, writing, or just letting the PC stand and idle with nothing running, and the crashes will happen, regardless of anything else...

It does seem to happen regardless of what I'm doing. Right now, I just tried one thing; I sat down, ran Sysinternals' File Monitor and had it log every file access, waiting for the crash to happen. It logged about 3 KB of text during the 30 seconds or so when the crash and explorer restart occurred... it's below. At that moment I was only reading a cached web page, ... Read more

Asus P4P800E motherboard, P4 3,00, Nvidia 6200 video card(256mb), running Windows Media Center O/S, Media Lab VFD w/remote, 2 gigs of RAM, AverMedia Dual TV Tuner, two 320gb Seagate drives,
PC is connected from the DVI on the video card to the HDMI connector on my TV.
My problem is that when I turn off my tv it sends a signal to the PC that makes it act strange. Sometimes it crashes, restarts, (turns off the video card?) it seems to do different things.
When I turn the tv back on I get a black screen (dark gray) and have to hold the power button down to restart, it reboots and everything is good again. If I turn the PC off first it's all good, but I want to leave the PC on so I can access music, photo's and whatever else from my other computers. If I turn the tv off first, then turn it back on later I can't access the computer without restart. I set it up with a second desktop monitor to see what was going on. When the tv goes off both monitors go black, then the desktop monitor comes back on, but I can never get the signal back to the tv. (restart again )Anybody ran into a problem like this? Everything else works good. It was a pain in the to get the desktop to fit on my 1366x 768 display, but thats it. Any help would be great

problems with computer crashing about 30 minutes after first turning it on in am. After the first crash only takes 5 or 10 minutes if that. Fairly new home built, Vista home premium, with AMD Athlon 6000+ chip. Put ASUS utility in to monitor temp and found problem with high temps in cpu, fixed that with better heat sink and more fans in chasis. I put in a new liteon dvd writer because it wouldn't read the ASUS utility software, but can't load the Nero 7 software that came with it. . So now temp is fixed but same problem is acting up. So far one crash just trying to get this message in. Had some malware/viruses that Avast was able to find (the only program that found them - all others gave clean bill of health) Do not have the money to spend on a IT fellow unless that is my last resort. Know I need to give you more info, but thought I would start out with hijack and see if that shows anything.

If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

The topic title contains the gist of my problem. Firefox and IE both run slightly but noticeably slower, and I believe that I'm connecting through a proxy server. I scanned my computer several times using Malwarebytes, but each time the same infected files keep showing up.Initially, some fake anti-spyware program installed itself on my computer, systemsecurity 4.51 I believe. I managed to prevent that from starting up, and deleted the .exe but I'm pretty sure I missed something. I'm not too knowledgeable on the subject, but then again I never had to deal with this problem.Here's my HijackTHis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 5:13:11 PM, on 5/23/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP3 (6.00.2900.5512)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\WINDOWS\SOUNDMAN.EXEC:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\E_FATIADA.EXED:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5.0\apdproxy.exeC:\WINDOWS\AGRSMMSG.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\igfxtray.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\hkcmd.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\igfxpers...

A:Google links keep being redirected, Explorer crashes every few minutes, Interent browsers work slower.

Hello Pauru,Not good news here at all. It's worse than you think it is, I'm afraid. One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan. You also have a file infector and password/info stealer : http://www.prevx.com/filenames/24837033538...1/LD08.EXE.htmlThis 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. This one is so bad I don't even recommend you try. 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.

So my gaming computer has had this problem for a while, but I've just put it a side and not bothered attempting to get it fixed, so I went back and used my old computer. However, I now want to get it fixed but want to try and fix it myself before taking it to a computer repair place.

So my computer is having a issue where once it gets past the Windows loading screen it will crash within a couple of minutes every single time without fail, and I will have to restart the computer only for it to crash again. It doesn't matter if I put the computer in safe mode, it will still crash. I am unable to system restore my computer as it will stall before it can actually restore the computer. The only thing that doesn't cause the computer to crash is when I just linger in the BIOS menu. This makes me think it's Windows that's causing the problem, however I cannot be 100% sure. Can anyone give me any advice or anything to help me solve my issue? It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

About 3 days ago, my computer began freezing every 15 minutes or so. The monitor would freeze, and the speakers would make a sharp popping noise. I'd then have to restart the computer. Occasionally, the computer would also randomly restart itself without warning. I system restored and ran antivirus, no help. Anyone know what to do here?

Specs:

MSI K8N Neo4 Nforce Mboard
AMD 64 3000+
80 gig SATA harddrive
1.5 gigs of memory (A stick of 1 gig and a stick of .5 gig)
Gigabyte Radeon x600 Graphics card

The last thing I did to the computer was add .5 gigs of memory, however the .5 stick came with the computer when I bought it, I had been using a 1 gig for about a year 'cause it wasn't detecting the memory when I installed it.

A:Computer freezes or crashes every few minutes.

Looks very likely that its the new memory you've installed. Take it out and see how your computer goes then. You can also do a memory check of the memory just google the manufacture name and see if there is software to use.

My XP SP3 system has started crashing recently.

System is:
Intel Dual-Core 2.66GHz - 4GB Ram (not all being addressed) - Intel MB

Symptoms:
- I can start computer up fine. If I do nothing with it, or run basic background processes, it seems to run forever
- If I start using the system for browsing, running basic apps or (what I built it for) audio recording, it will almost always crash after about 15-20 minutes
- When it crashes, generally a button or some sort of menu gets stuck on whatever app I'm running. Other process/apps continue to run and work for a few clicks, then they eventually crash. After a few clicks, the whole system is frozen.

Other things of note:
- When this first began, the problem seemed worse (crashed in 5-10 minutes), and it looks like I may have had some malware running. I booted up in Safe Mode (seems to last longer), ran some apps to remove any malware, then ran CCleaner to take processes down to a minimum. This seems to allow the system to run better and gives me up to 20 minutes before things crash again.
- System appears to be clear of malware
- I have also reseated all cards, RAM, cables - and have changed the RAM. Same result.

Before I break down and start replacing each component one at a time trying to determine if it's hardware, I just wanted to get some advice on what my symptoms sound like to everyone.

TIA

Hello, many many thanks to all who work here on these forums. Much appreciated.

Okay, my computer has been hard crashing on certain games within just a few minutes of logging in. It shuts down and auto restarts. Sometimes however, it shuts down tries to restart and shuts down again. Up to a cycle of 3 times. During those times it is restarting even before the beep at start up. I have checked the heat ranges and the processor is well with in the limits. I think 61 C is the highest I have seen it recently. I do not get a white, blue, black, or Green screen prior to these shutdowns.

THE GMER log was extremely long. The total post was over 84,000 characters. please advise.

I use a Dell Inspiron N5110 Core i5, Windows 7 XP, and i'm having a pretty annoying problem. 
"all of a sudden"; a week or so ago (a few days before this issue), I downloaded the most recent drivers for my computer off of the Dell site, according to their detection tool. I don't know if this will even be relevant, just throwing it in there. 
 
When i turn on my computer, it can take a few minutes for the login screen to show up, or sit at a black screen with nothing but my cursor visible after i have logged in. If one of those don't stop me i have a very long wait as my desktop loads, with the icons flashing from their regular images to a white page image. (I've gotten a DSD-260/2736 (not responding) window that pops up a few times, the number changes.)
After the 'loading' animation on my cursor has gone away, if i make it to this point, i can open a program such as  task manager, the simple volume adjustment interface, or google chrome etc, and it will slowly run for a minute before becoming unresponsive along with the rest of my computer and i am forced to do a hard restart.
 
The most frustrating part is that sometimes i can boot up and it works properly. After 1-50 tries it'll power on and run without an issue all day. I've had no luck searching for similar problems.
If there's any more information i can give just say so, thank you in advance to anyone with some insight on this issue.

A:Computer often crashes within minutes. Weird problem.

 
 
1) Test the hd:
http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 
 
Make sure you select the tool which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), to make the CD bootable.
For Toshiba drives, see here: http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=ServicesSupport/FujitsuDrivesUSandCanada/SoftwareUtilities#diagnostic
 
2) Test the ram:  download memtest (http://memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.
 
Let's see where we are after that.

i'm typing fast before computer crashes, bear with me sorry

our computer has a load of problems, and has had it for years. but here's what happened recently.

i had the System Security problem several months ago, but got rid of it (see my previous thread). had another scare last month, but all it was was something like "SS is downloading to your computer 1.2.3.4..." i don't remember what i did, i might've shut down the computer immediately. after that nothing was really amiss (other than our comp's usual issues)

our computer keeps crashing// shutting down wihtout going thru any process. just going black.
our HD is almost full (maybe 90%, i'll have to check), and vista has been warning us for months to "check our computer security", but i wasn't sure what to do.
not sure if crashing is a physical thing (wires etc) or if computer is messed up.
additionally, our recycle bin won't empty. i was trying to lighten up our HD by deleting some files.

can anyone help? thanks so much.

I just got Portal yesterday and tried playing it, but after about 5 minutes it crashes my computer. I've reduced my CPU until it idles at 5-15%, and I checked it while I was playing (before it crashed the third time) - it was typically between 30-80% with some spikes at 95 and a few at 100...so it's not completely overloaded. When I'm Livestreaming the CPU is around 80 and often stays at around 100 for a while, but it doesn't crash my computer, even after 30 min. One of my friends suggested that might be the problem, but it doesn't seem to be.

I checked if I had the hardware etc for the game using that "Can I run this game" thing in the sticky. I have over the required, but under the recommended, so I updated my graphics chip driver and DirectX. Haven't run the "Can I run it" since but Portal doesn't even lag a bit before it crashes - it's running perfectly then all of the sudden, poof.

I recently cleaned the fans (about a month or so ago) and have a thing that props my computer up to improve airflow. How do I tell if overheating's the problem?

My computer's fine running Spore and Zoo Tycoon 2 for extended periods of time without throwing this fit. Sims3 crashes it as well, but Sims3 has major issues so I'm less worried about that, though I'd like to be able to play that as well.

Edit to add: Just tried to run it again; now it launches, gets past the first couple of intro/credit screens, then... Read more

I've been having problems for a while now. It's 2 actually.

First problem is that sometimes when I'm just doing stuff on my computer (browsing, watching videos) the screen just freezes or sometimes goes all black and it sounds like the computers restarting. However, the screen just stays black so I hold the power button to turn it off. When I try to turn it on again the screen still just stays black. I have to wait about 6 minutes or so then try turning on again and it will boot properly.

Second problem is that whenever I do Shut Down properly, after "Saving your settings, Computer is shutting down" or something I get a Blue Screen saying some STOP error and it says that the Windows Logon process has terminate unexpectedly or something similar. So once again I must hold the power button to turn off the computer.

Also, I think my hard drive may be failing. It's partitioned into C and D. C has got all my Windows files on it while D is just for storage. sometimes when I download things it won't save because of a bad sector or something. Does this have anything to do with my computer acting up?

I've attached my HijackThis log. please help. I have no idea what's happening.

The computer ran fine for a couple of days, then started doing it again.It seems to go in cycles, works fine, no crashing for a couple of days.

The computer in question crashes every time a game (WoW, UT2004, Black and White 1&2 all tested) is loaded, after about 2-4 minutes. Usually works fine on other programs. Crashed once on load of a youtube page.

The crash goes like this: freezes, sound starts looping, screen goes black, then monitor shows it is receiving no signal. The sound looping does not occur in WoW.

Up to date drivers for both video and sound, ram passes memtest, PSU rated for 850 watts (way more than this needs).

Tried unplugging the sound card to see if it was the problem, and now it won't boot except in safe mode...

any suggestions?

The computer crashes every few minutes. I think I've seen multiple BSOD messages, but the one in the current configuration appears to be 3D. When I say "current configuration, I mean that I've tried all sorts of combinations of parts and driver disabling and can't stop the crashing. Here's what I've tried:

New hard drive
remove promise technology card
remove intel pro 100 card
disable every driver in device manager I can disable.
Fresh install of Windows 7

Right now I've re-enabled most of the drivers, since disabling had no effect, but I haven't replaced the cards i removed. I may not put them back in, since they probably aren't needed.

I have two hard drives inside, attached to mobo with esata cables.

First of your bios is way old .... try updating this from the manufacturer site ... along with all other drivers .... they have update to them..... you can find it here

Second .... some of BSOD is caused by USBport.sys, one of them by explorer, few by filesystem error... So the best way to go from here is to first update all the driver... then update windows...

Thirdly you system has shutdown even at high temperature.... like at 99.85 deg C... Are you sure you put the thermal paste on the processor properly ?/?? or has the processor fan properly been locked to the motherboard....????

Now when I click on my computer it loads the ssd fine but the hdd doesn't load and the green loading bar at the top of the window starts of fast then gradually slows down until it doesn't move. And if I right click on it it crashes windows explorer and I have to end it in task manager.

When I start up it goes through the bios fine but when it says 'starting windows' it normally goes straight to the desktop but it just stays at 'starting windows' for about two minutes then the screen goes black and I see the desktop. I think there is a file that is is corrupt or something.

I know for sure it is the hdd that is causing the problems because when I disable achi mode in the bios it starts like normal. (my ssd is connected through PCI slot)

I believe that you are refering to the screensaver that clicks in after x amount of minutes.Go to control panel,click on personalisation,click on screen saver.Their you will see a wait till probably ten minutes.Alter it to what you want.I have mine at twenty but the option is yours.This was more for the older type of monitors to prevent a image being burnt into the screen.

A friend of my brother accidentally broke his Laptop the other day, and I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do to repair it. I'm not exactly sure what he did, but when he broke it, it apparently broke the monitor and killed the hard drive. Replacing the hard drive isn't that big of a deal, and he says he doesn't mind using an external monitor for it (though the monitor does still work, though it has a large crack through it now... which you can see here http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo151/Superbark/Photo-0009.jpg ).

Unfortunately, whenever I try to turn on the computer and run some things like diagnostics and whatnot, the computer keeps randomly shutting down. I think the fan is still working (since I can hear it), so I don't think it is overheating or anything (I could be wrong though, but the bottom never feels scolding hot or anything). Here's the strange thing though; whenever I plug in the Laptop and I have the battery in, the computer will turn on just fine (though it will shut down in a couple of minutes, like I mentioned up above). If I try to turn it on when the battery is out, but still plugged into the wall... it won't turn on. If it is not plugged in, but the battery is placed in, it'll turn on (then shut down in a minute or so). If I have both the battery in and have the Laptop plugged into the wall, then I remove the battery... it'll still work, but still shut down again in a few minutes. What'... Read more

Hi,

I know this has been asked a million times on the web already but its seriouslly annoying me now.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) keeps turning the monitor off after 15 Mins of in-activity.

However - before it does that at 14 Mins and 30 Seconds it sorta does a quick flash - then at exactlly 15 mins does the turning off.

All the power options are set to Never. (I have even created my own power plan for this)

I have never had this problem on this PC before - this is a new install - and since then it has been doing this.

(That makes me reluctant to think its the BIOS or Video Card)

Any ideas would be most welcome?

Thank you in advance.

I've come asking for help because occassionally explorer.exe randomly crashes and the computer has slowed down considerably since I bought it. If you could take a look and give some advice I would really appreciate it.

Ok, ive had explorer.exe crash mainly everytime i got into my computer now. My pc sometimes goes slow in firefox, but its usually very fast. Just my explorer.exe is my main concern and is very annoying. I did a HJT log and i saw out that it was clean, here it is if you want to take a look. Adaware, spysweeper, and norton are clean. Help is much appreciated.

My computer keeps hanging and I can't work out why. If I format my computer and reinstall everything it happens again (even after zero-fill) and it seems to happen on multiple pcs. At first I thought it was AVG antivirus's scan. After removing AVG things quitened down, but now I'm getting crashes again.

I suspect that when reinstalling my programs I may have used a crack containing Trojan, I install lots of cracks as a matter of course.

I've ran a full system scan with Avast Antivirus but found nothing. Spybot's process explorer did find a lot of CTFMON processes, could this be the problem?

I have the following error on the event log:

Application Hang
Event id: 1002

Hanging application Photoshop.exe, version 10.0.0.0, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.

I get lots of these for different apps now, before they were generic in nature. For example windows media player, drwtsn32.exe (DR Watson), and k-lite codecs installer.

Here is the issue, when my computer goes to sleep after it's on for a while when I move the mouse to get the screen back up it shows the backround no icons or anything to click.
Same if I turn it off and turn it back on. I have to turn it off and on many times then go to safe mode and shut down then turn it on again for it to work. Just now I had to turn it on/off 4 times for it to show the icons and task bar. Usually it is left blank with nothing to click having no choice but to turn it off.
Norton says no viruses.
My computer is HP with windows 7. I bought it in 2011.
This problem has been happening for a long time. Please help.

A:When turning off computer & turning it back on again screen is blank

Hello squirrels and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think I'd start out by trying to do a startup repair. It's been suggested that the startup repair be done 3 times (regardless of what the notifications say) and the computer rebooted after each repair.

Startup Repair

If this doesn't fix the problem one of the Forum experts has prepared these troubleshooting guides with some additional suggestions.

Right where do I start. Ever since I've had this pc it's been doing my head in. It originally had xp media center where a unreadble bugged up my comp as explorer always crashed when i scrolled over the file. I wiped it clean and installed home edition from scratch. All that happens with my computer is explorer constantly crashes, it freezes so i have to wait for it to shut itself down, or i have to switch it off at the plug. Everytime I go on the internet all I get is TARGETED popups and other annoying ones that with no program I ever have the problem is never sorted. Even when i'm barely doing anything major just windows live messenger, 1 or internet explorers open and itunes, the cpu usage goes over belief. Please help This is my hijack file, seems a lot of things are missing, I didnt delete any?
