BSD - A Process or thread crucial to system..

Q: BSD - A Process or thread crucial to system..

Hi,

My new computer has been having problems with suddenly crashing while I'm watching movies, downloading movies, performing a virus scan test, listening to music etc. I will be in the midst of doing one of the aforementioned tasks and suddenly it crashes and leads me to the BSD with either of the following messages;

“A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

Follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new install, ask your manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hard or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select safe mode.

or

Kernel_Stack_Inpage_Error

***STOP: 0x000000077(0xC00000184, 0xC0000185, 0x000000000, 0x0025E000)

Beginning dump of physical memory...

The specs on my computer are as follows;

AMD Athlon 64 Processor - Duo Core
3500+
2.21GHz, 1GB RAM,
Motherboard: NF4X
Graphics: GForce7300GS Power-Full 256MB
HDD: SATA 160G (7200.7/2M)
Windows XP Professional, SP2

I checked my event viewer and this seems to be a recurring warning message under 'systems' of the event viewer;

Warning - Tcpip - TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.

I have taken my computer to the shop two times already, and they can't seem to locate the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I appreciate any help, thanks!

Preferred Solution: BSD - A Process or thread crucial to system..

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 would first suspect that you have an overheating problem. Very random errors can be produced by that.

I've getting occasional BSOD lately. They sometime occur only a day a part, sometimes a week. It started I'd say a month or so ago, which was also couple weeks after I had reinstalled Windows 7, which I did after an uninstall of Office 2013 seemed to have not completed correctly, and had also never gotten most of the preinstalled junk of this laptop anyways. I think I installed all the necessary drivers. All hardware functions correctly and nothing is missing in Device Manager.

Every time it is the same message "A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly ended". So far I have ran scans with MSE, MBAM Pro, and WDO, which have found no signs of viruses or other malware. I have run sfc /scannow, checkdisk and every scan that Seatools has. No problems have been detected with the harddrive, sfc found no integrity errors. Last night I had memtest86+ running off of a usb drive run for 7 passes. No errors were found. I went through Event Viewer and found nothing that seemed related. I checked and all my drivers seem to be up to date.

I hope I included all necessary information. My system specs are up to date. The three dumps I have are attached below. I had deleted the older ones with ccleaner without thinking. If I left out anything, let me know. Its been a while, since I've done much troubleshooting on a computer, so I might be overlooking something.

Hi

I ran Auslogics Boost Speed Registry Defrag - yes I know, I know.

I now have a persistent BSOD.

I cannot Boot into Safe Mode or any other mode.

Startup Repair picks up no errors.

sfc /scannow returns the following

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.
There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again.

This is impossible as the only way to access Command Prompt is via Repair options.

The full BSOD is:-

A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

*** STOP: 0X000000F4 (0X0000000000000003,0XFFFFFA8003AA03DO,0XFFFFFA8003AA06BO,0XFFFFF80002D84670)

I think I have narrowed down the problem. Auslogics has managed to screw up the process of migrating my new defragged Registry and I can find no way of getting my old one back.

System Restore does not work as it tells me I need to enable it on the drive (it is enabled - all my restore points are there but the check box next to my windows drive is greyed out)

After using Hiren's Boot CD's mini XP I have managed to locate a log file generated by Auslogics at the time of the crash. I have pasted the contents below.

After checking the file sizes of DEFAULT, COMPONENTS, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE and SYSTEM files - it appears that only some of them have been modified. Unfortunately some of the file sizes are about 75% smaller which says to me that my BSOD occurred at the worst possible moment.

Still grateful for any suggestions but I reckon a fresh install might be in order.

Greetings,i've been constantly been having blue screens and freezes non-stop,and since i've once fixed a problem with the help of this website,i trust that i can get some help again.
Ok,lets start from the beginning,about 20 days ago i went on a trip for holidays,a few days earlier i'd cleaned my computer's cooler fan,usual stuff.
Now,as i've come back,my computer has been unusually slow and having non-stop blue screens and freezes,to the point where i sometimes have to restart it several times for it to last more than start-up.
Also apologize for the bad quality of the photo and the occasional mixed up languages in my attached file,as my computer language is set to Portuguese. I've tried running blue screen view,but the program shows no signs of anything like nothing was happening,which is very unusual as it has helped me solve many issues before.
On a side note,i've been having my Utorrent randomly close its process for no reason,and malware bytes has shown no signs of problems. Kinda gave up on doing a complete scan with Avast anti-virus because my computer often blue screens before the scan can even get to 1%,but i will try to help as much as i can.
I await for responses

Hello, I am trying to isolate what happened when a power failure last night took down my desktop. I haven't had problems with this computer in two years(and haven't had a power outage in about as long amazingly, one of the few benefits of a drought I guess). Based on what I have found, it is a hardware failure. The error is the:

"A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly ended"

I have been trying to figure out how to read the minidump files with no success and I would like to get my desktop up and running as soon as possible.

Here are some of the symptoms I am seeing. When booted on, two harddrives always show of my four(two 1 TB, 2 SSDs of different makes, one of which is the primary OS drive). The F and C always show, but the other two often do not. Except when I ran Seagate tools. From what I can tell, both of them are on the same pair of ports to the motherboard. The two that do not show up normally, return a bunch of errors on the SeaTools scan for logs reporting and barely function scan wise and won't scan through SMART scan.

The D and E drives almost seem to randomly lose connection.

The computer BSODs on reboot so far approx 50% of the time of 4 boot ups. CHKDISK /F /R returned no errors.

Based on my information and knowledge, I would assume the motherboard is damaged. But without more information I can't tell.

Attached are the Minidump files.

A:Crucial thread failure BSOD after storm caused power outage

So, if you switch the cable from one of the "working" drives, to one of the drives that isnt showing up, does it show up?

Hi All.

VirusHeat was removed (mostly - directory, registry entries) by Adaware, but there's a hidden process/thread that's causing it to boot (even in safe mode) with an annoying system tray icon that's constantly saying (in a bubble) that there are spyware threats that aren't there.

After running startuplist202 and HijackThis v2, still can't find it.

I'm sure I could find it with LOTS of time, but a co-worker has two computers infected with it, and is trying to complete University assignments.

I'm at work so I can't put it on the Net through the network. Limited use of a very full usb key has allowed me to put up this logfile.

A:Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000080

0xC000021A: STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS_TERMINATEDThis occurs when Windows switches into kernel mode and a user-mode subsystem, such as Winlogon or the Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS), is compromised. Security can no longer be guaranteed. Because Win XP can?t run without Winlogon or CSRSS, this is one of the few situations where the failure of a user-mode service can cause the system to stop responding. This Stop message also can occur as a result of malware infestation or when the computer is restarted after a system administrator has modified permissions so that the SYSTEM account no longer has adequate permissions to access system files and folders.I've never gotten this particular error...but if I did, i would treat it as a malware situation until proven otherwise.Louis

This only happens on my Toshiba laptop, occasionally I get this, and only a system restore or fresh re-install works, on to the explanation.

I run dial-up, so it is especially bad for me! What happens is, randomly, two files (possibly more, but I've located only two for now) gets created on my computer, and their whereabouts are unknown. I use the latest Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, and I have NOD32 expired anti-virus. (Though I have the latest update, the last update that was applied was yesterday before it expired.) I've scanned my entire system with it, no viruses found, great! Then, when those two files appeared randomly, (I know, because for some reason it eats up my dial-up connection), I scanned them too.

Now, NOTEPAD.exe is another small file, invisible, running as a SYSTEM process, and is located in C:\WINDOWS\system.

I found out that the hard disk is 100% utilized. In Task Manager, the process that utilizes the disk the most is ESET Service. If I open Resource Monitor there are many instances of the System process that are reading the disk, not writing it. I have two partitions on my disk - one for the system and the other one for data; the extensive disk reading is done for Pictures (I assigned a folder with pictures, about 140 GB in size, to the system My Pictures folder) on the data partition.

I am not running any tests in the ESET Endpoint Antivirus software and it seems to me that the high disk activity starts when I do not do anything and just e.g. browse Internet or look at something. So, it feels like Windows is doing something, but I have no idea what it is and how I can influence it. If it were disk optimizations I think I should see also disk writes, not only reads. Could it be that Windows is doing something automatic with Pictures, Documents, etc.?

I wonder what is going on - I dislike the fact that something is going on with the hard disk, making is 100% utilized and making other work very slow and non-responsive.

A:System process reading disk 100% and making the system very slow

I think I found out what was going on. I accidentally opened the Windows Store app named Photos and the high disk activity has been a problem since that time. To stop the activity, I had to remove the folder My Pictures from Sources in the Photos app's settings. I think the Photos app was somehow cataloguing all pictures, which I do not need or want.

I reset my pc this morning and displayed that message with the blue screen and kept reseting. Ive read that its a graphics driver. But when I see posts it always say which driver after the error. Mine does not. When I boot in safe mode the same thing happens. Start up recovery wont run and when I ran system restore it failed saying first that maybe an anti virus made it fail. Then when I tried again it said maybe the hard drive is corrupt. Im now running chkdsk with the recovery disk and the drive seems ok. Any idea? How would I find the driver? Is therw away through the recovery cmd to disable all drivers?

Hi, I have a rather old laptop that I just installed Windows on. Right now it has SP1 (I tried SP2 on it, and bad bad bad things happened. That's why I now have a fresh install of SP1 ).

Anyway, after a while, a thread called System, owned by SYSTEM takes up 100% of the cycles! I can't even move my mouse! After about 10 seconds, it loosens up a little, and my mouse is incredibly jerky, then it goes to not taking up any cpu cycles for about 5 seconds. Then 100% again.

It's windows XP pro, the laptop is an ACER Travelmate 600ter (p3 600, 256 megs of ram). It ran SP1 very successfully before without doing this, so I know it can.

Anyone have any ideas why the System thread (with an 80 kb footprint) is doing this? Oh, and I checked my memory, at the time only 130 megs were allocated, so I don't think it's thrashing.

Thanks!

Hi, am getting the error message "System Thread Exception Not Handled" and dop not have boot disk to resolve problem. PLease advise best way forward. Kerry

A:Need a fix for System Thread Exception Not Handled...

hi Kerry,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
From this microsoft article, that BSOD error can be caused by a hardware incompatibility or a faulty device driver or system service.
 
If you have Windows 8, try these steps:
 
Option 1:
Remove all connected peripherals (eg., USB Drivers, Printers, etc.) and enter Push-Button Reset (PBR) mode - this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc from a previous working state. To do this, hold the power button while on the Windows 8 boot screen (you need to do this twice).
   - Sample image
 
If successful, Windows will run startup repair. If it can't repair the error, you'll see this screen:
 

 
From here, click Advanced Options > Troubleshoot and you can:
a. Boot from the Last Known Good Configuration
b  Boot into Safe Mode
c. Do a System Restore to restore Windows from a working state
d  Refresh your Windows 8 PC  or Reset windows 8 (note that this will wipe the computer clean)
 
Option 2:
Follow this guide on how to enable legacy Safe Mode. When done, you should be able to access Safe Mode / Last Known Good Configuration by pressing F8 on boot up and perform the PBR options in Option 1.
 
Option 3:
Press the OneKey Recovery button to restore the system to factory settings (note that this will wipe all data on the OS partition) -- this would be the easiest step if you don't mind starting over.

I?m having issues where my System process spikes to %100 and my computer becomes un-useable and I?m forced to do a hard reboot.
My System specs are :
OS: Windows 7 Professional (64 bit)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770K
Mother Board: ASUS P8Z77-V


I?ve been able to look at the threads running under it with Process Explorer and when the CPU spiked I saw ~7 threads of
Ntoskrnl.exe!ExReleaseResourceAndLeavePriorityRegion+0x194

I?ve been trying to run this command to get some info:
xperf -on latency -stackwalk profile -buffersize 2048 -MaxFile 1024 -FileMode Circular && timeout -1 && xperf -d C:\highCPUUsage.etl

It hasn?t been easy running the capture since when the CPU spikes to 100% nothing responds. I was able to get one capture by starting it before any issue were occurring and then having it write just prior to the system becoming un-useable. (It ended up creating two etl files kernel.etl and highCPUUsage.etc) I'm not sure how much info about the issue that was captured but I've uploaded the captures to my google drive account and they can be accessed here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxY...ew?usp=sharing.

Some background info: I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. It is 64-bit. I am running it on a laptop.

I have no idea why I got the BSOD, but I did get it today. Restarted the computer in safe mode, then restarted again in "regular" mode and everything was fine. I'm typing on the same computer now (it's the only one I have, okay?). Can't think of anything that would be wrong with the computer, except the charger broke (I'm pretty sure this is a charger issue, and a new one is in the mail) so the battery doesn't charge: I have to have the computer plugged in when I use it.

Anyway, here's the text from the MEMORY.DMP file. Thanks for your help, guys! I'm a little afraid to even try anything myself, since I've heard messing with these files is a bad idea, so I came here for help first. I hope that's okay.
