Multiple executions

Q: Multiple executions

Hello guys,

I googled for these symptoms everywhere but could not find anything.
I would deeply appreciate any help I could get on this.
It all started 2 days ago, I turned my PC usually and proceeded to work. I have a habit of looking at task manager every several minutes, just to make sure of things. So I saw several copies of Winlogon.exe Normally that would not be a problem, but I am not running several user accounts on this PC and therefore I did not expect to see several winlogon.exe-s. Well, I let it slip and the next thing I know there are 130 Winlogon.exe running.
I rolled system 2 days back but the same thing happened. At some point (around 200 proccesses) winlogons crash and leave only 4-5 of them hanging in process list.
As I found out the day after, not only winlogon.exe is affected. Same happens when I run firefox. It took me 20 minutes to get on the forum alone. Right now all winlogon.exe-s died but i have around 70 firefox.exe running, but only 1 actual browser window. I can see which one of those is actual browser window because I can see proportionally more memory that it is using. When I started up firefox they kept spawning around up to 150 copies and then started crashing.

I am attaching the copy of dxdiag.

Please advise on this, I could just reinstall windows, but I am very interested what might cause this behavior.

Thanks to all that care. I'm like a biology professor looking at these multiplying:))

Preferred Solution: Multiple executions

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.)

Lately when I have tried to open an installation EXE for a vocaloid, it would execute the file over and over again (confirmed by checking the processes in the windows task manager). It started once I downloaded Daemon Tools Lite and I have since then deleted that and the vocaloid installation. I think that may have fixed the problem but I would still like to see if there are any lingering problems that may pop up later on.
Also, I am pretty sure I have access to a windows Boot CD but I am not 100% sure.

Last week my system got significantly slower.  Task Mgr shows a lot of "dllhost.exe" tasks running, stealing all my memory, and dramatically slowing my system.  Since then Norton has reported multiple virus attacks being stopped.

These popups are occurring about once a day. They have various names, and Google searches on the DLL names are returning no items. SpyBot appears to believe that I'm clean, as does SuperAntiSpyware. Funny thing - neither SpyBot nor SuperAntiSpyware start automatically upon startup any longer (this has me worried...)

Per Windows Update instructions, I recently updated to IE 8. This may/may not (probably!) was around the time the popup began occurring, but better to be safe than sorry.

Another issue I've encountered recently, around the same time frame, is that my SigmaTel C-Major Audio card has stopped working. Device Manager seems to think it's functioning properly. I've tried disabling/re-enabling it, as well as shutting down/starting up the system. No help. I've tried using the WIndows troubleshooting tool to help fix it. Nada.

One other thing that happened around the same time that's probably unrelated - I stopped receiving email notifications from Facebook (stop laughing.) No settings were changed.

Any help on any of my crap would be appreciated.

I'm new to ATA and started testing it in our domain. ATA reports DNS recon and I tried running wmic and psexec commands as decribed in the ATA playbook:
wmic /node:dc1 process call create ?net user /add InsertedUser pa$$w0rd1?
psexec \\dc1 -accepteula net localgroup ?Administrators? InsertedUser /add
For both I get an access denied (which is correct for the user I'm testing with). Shouldn't those tries also get reported in ATA? I don't see any message so far for those attempts.

I have several sets of folder trees, each with multiple sub-folders, each sub-folder containing multiple files. I would like to merge all of this into a single folder tree, retaining the same sub-folder structure and each sub-folder containing a single set of files, eliminating all of the inevitable duplicates that will arise from the merging.

Doing this manually with Windows Explorer is both tedious and time consuming. I have to select all of the files in one of the sub-folders, then drag the selection to the corresponding sub-folder in the main folder tree, choose 'move and replace' and tick 'do the same for the next x conflicts' and repeat this process for each of the many sub-folders.

Although I did an online search before posting this plea for help, I have only seen utilities that will merge all files in multiple folders into a single folder, I have not seen a utility that will do what I need.

I'm hoping that someone will know of a utility that will save me doing this manually for the next many years!

Thank you in anticipation.


A:[SOLVED] Merging multiple files in multiple sub-folders into a single folder tree

I would really look into Robocopy from microsoft. It's a pretty simple yet very powerful tool for copying files, mirroring directories, and many other file tasks. Here is a small tutorial outlining some of the cool things you can do. If you'd rather have a GUI, look at Robocopy GUI.

I have several folder trees each containing many sub-folders, say A, B, C, D and so on. The names of the sub-folders are mostly the same between the various folder trees, although there could be an X, Y, Z in one folder tree and not in others, or only 20 sub-folders in one folder tree and 40 in another.

Each sub-folder contains many files, most of which are the same as those in other sub-folders of the same name. For example, folder A in one tree may have 50 files, 40 of which are the same as sub-folder A located in another folder tree.

What I am trying to achieve is a single 'master' folder tree containing all of the sub-folders in each of the existing folder trees, each sub-folder containing all of the files in all of the sub-folders of that name, without any sub-folders or files in each sub-folder duplicated.

I can achieve exactly this by manually moving files to the corresponding sub-folder in the 'master' folder tree, clicking 'move and replace' and ticking 'do this for the next x conflicts', but it is tedious and very time consuming.

Thank you in anticipation that someone will know how to automate this otherwise laborious process.

I sure hope someone can provide, or direct me to the formula to accomplish the following in Xcel 2000.
I have a singe sheet consisting of 5,123 rows of data in 13 columns. A person has been maintaining this and we are about to convert it to cvs and install a text file in a CGI\Perl program to run on a web site. For some unknown reason the person who started and has been maintaining the file has set it up so that the first 3 columns contain data that should be all in one column. Here is an example: a ham radio call, we will say is: WW6XXX. In the first column (A), row 7, he has entered the prefix: "WW", in the second column, (B), row 7 he has entered the call district "6" and in the third column (C), row 7, he has entered the suffix "WWW".

I have inserted a blank column "D". I can combine, for example A7,B7 and C7 with the simple formula =A1&B1&C1 placed in D7. No problem.

Now the problem, and I'm sure you all ready can see it. I need to do this with all 5,123 rows. It certainly SEEMS, logically, that I should be able to accomplish this but durned if I've been able to do it. I have Googled, I have Jeeved it, you name it, I've tried it. I have found some "close calls" that almost answer it, but not the real answer.

Obviously I can do this 5,123 times, manually, but I'd rather find a simpler answer, if there is one.

A while back, this machine was up and running with no problems until a nasty hijack put it out of commission. It sat untouched for 4 or 5 months until I finally got a new hard drive to reinstall windows on. I decided just to put the new hard drive (Hitachi 1TB) in there and use the old one (Western Digital 250GB) as extra storage on my other (problem-free) machine.

I installed Windows as usual, got it up and running, applied some updates (but not SP3), began installing my programs and CRASH. The restart would take forever and it would either a) hang on the Windows XP loading screen (with the running blue bar underneath the logo) or b) give me a ?Disk read error? before it ever got to a windows screen. I reformatted, reinstalled Windows, and the exact same thing happened again.

Hello thereisnoart,

you may have to wipe the hard drive with a 3rd party program like (KIllDisk

the reason for this is hijacker programs can be hard writen to the drive so when you do a simple formate it bleed thru and you jacked again

Once again, my computer thinks it's been working correctly for too long

Here is the link to my previous thread: [SOLVED] Unknown BSOD from time to time

This time, it basically gives me a BSOD when the processor workload is higher than 20%, something runs out of memory or the computer has been idle for more than 15 mins. (Using YouTube, playing Games etc. etc.) Here are all the error reports:

Hi, i had been having issues with bluescreens once every week or so. I took action by updating my drivers etc but this did not fix the issue. I re-installed windows and got all my drivers on and such yet the problem persists with more bluescreens, more often and with more driver causes.
Before the re-install the bluescreen was always atikmdag.sys but now i have had two others. I believe these may be due to the program ESL Wire which is an anti-cheat program for counter-strike tournaments. If there is any way to have ESL Wire and not experience the BSOD then please let me know as i need to use it for tournaments. I am not aware of the cause of atikmdag.sys and have tried beta graphics drivers but the problem persists.
I have attached the DM Log Collector results.
Thanks for reading,

I am not familiar with the ESL Wire program you mentioned. I do know what it is, and a brief search on the internet shows you are not the only one having issues with it, just not all the issues are the exact same as yours. Have you tried uninstalling it and doing the same thing as you normally do that causes the BSODs? That should answer that question, one way or the other. I know you need it for what you do, but has proven to be a problematic program, it seems. ESL Wire has a forum you may want to post there and see what suggestions they have. If their tech support people frequent there, they made the program and would be the best ones to resolve any problems with it.

I've been having BSOD trouble over the past four or five months now. The BSODs typically happen once a week, sometimes twice, with small strings of daily crashes here and there. I'm at my wit's end when it comes to trying to figure out where the problem lies. All of my parts are under warranty, so I'm desperate to find out which one, if any, are at fault.

I've tested my hardware extensively. Memtest86 for 7 passes on multiple occasions, using different stick and slot combinations. Ran torture tests using Prime95 for the processor. All hard drive checks come back without problems. Ran Furmark on my video card with no artifacts.

The BSODs happen most commonly when using video playlists for both Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic, multiple types of files. They also sometimes occur when playing particular games (Borderlands II, Dark Souls). Installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 did not remove BSODs, even after running it in factory settings with no additional installations.

I have attached a dump file, and I thank whoever attempts to assist me.

A:Multiple BSODs, Multiple Bugchecks (0xD1, 0x3B, 0x50, 0x0A)

Hi anthonylert.

The versatility of the bugchecks are the indication of failing memory prima facie, but as you said you ran Memtest86, can you run the memtest86+?

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Also, disable bluetooth,at least as a test. The Atheros bluetooth module is appearing to be failing.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

I downloaded hijack this, clicked scan button, and got this popup alert:

If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this, click Start, Run and type:

Hello VBA experts. Need your help. I have a workbook with 14 worksheets. Each worksheet has several fields all named the same. I need to sort 3 fields in each worksheet. Those are ascending in this order; Patient ID (in column A), DOS (in column E) and Code (column B).
Does anyone know of a code that can easily sort all 14 tabs at once? The range of data in each worksheet are different. Some worksheets have very little data to sort while other worksheets have maybe a 2,000 rows of data.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my laptop.  I have a Fedora Core 7 server running SaMBa.  They share a /28 subnet (with 0, 6, and 7 taken by networking, 1 - 4 on the server, 5 on the laptop).
The server has multiple SaMBa shares (for this example, \\myserver\share1 and \\myserver\share2).  There are two SaMBA users, user1 and user2, each either their own passwords.  user1 can access \\myserver\share1 and user2 can access \\myserver\share2 .  I log on to the Vista laptop using a separate user/pass from either of those two accounts.
When I attempt to connect to these shares, I can do so without a problem if I connect to them singly using "connect using different user name".  However, if I attempt to connect to both simultaneously, I get:
"System error 1219 has occurred.
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed.  Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again."
I need to be able to connect to both shares simultaneously, but using the different credentials (I don't want user1 creating files in \\myserver\share2 and I don't want user2 creating files in \\myserver\share1).
I have tried manually using NET USE and I get the same error when I try to map the second drive after the first is mounted. I have also messed with regedit and changed \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\... Read more

If you still need help; download a copy of FRST and post its two logs and we will go from there:
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system, download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Looks like you can get the 64bit version.
    Right-click FRST then click "Run as administrator" (XP users: click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
    When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    Press the Scan button.
    When finished, it will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool was run from.
    Please copy and paste the log in your next reply.
The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory the tool was run from). Please also paste that, along with the FRST.txt into your next reply.

I have a pretty elaborate home network consisting of a wired gigabit ethernet primary network and a wireless-N wireless network. everything i have been able to get functioning flawlessly excluding getting the windows shares and ps3 media server i run from a wired windows 7 64-bit server to share across the wireless portion of my network. i attempted to fix this issue by purchasing a 2nd adapter for said server so that it would have both a wired and wireless connection and be able to share across both the 192.x.x.x subnet(which already works) and the 10.x.x.x subnet(which hasnt been. I now have the 2nd adapter setup without a gateway as to not confuse internet traffic going FROM said server so it will use the primary wired gigabit adapter instead of wireless. I am able to ping from the wireless side of the network back to the servers assigned wireless IP but for some reason still cannot see the shares, i have been unable to find any adapter specific share settings in win7 thus far and am wondering if i am missing something. any help is appreciated. Thanks. network topography attached.....

I have a large number of Brother PJ-622 printers that users connect laptops to. Even though they are all exact same model, the laptops are creating brand new local print queue for each individual printer. I suspect Brother has implemented the serial number capability within the USB spec.

The laptops are ending up with a large number of print queues on them (all labeled copy 1, copy 2, etc) which is confusing the end users. Nerds understand what they are and how to pick the correct one for the printer that's currently connected, but must of my users aren't nerds. Brother has a support document on this issue:

I have connected multiple printers of the same model to one PC but can only print from one of the machines. | Brother

But it simply describes how to choose the correct print queue, not how to prevent multiple queues from being created in the first place.

The printers are working great otherwise, but I'd really like to find a way to configure Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) to have just one print queue regardless of which PJ-622 it happens to be connected to.

Any ideas?

Multiple BSODs over the last year, sometimes while logging in, sometimes after 15 minutes of running. Have tried SFC/SCANNOW, memory test, CHKDSK, all with no reported errors. Did a system restore to Windows 8 a while back and kept getting BSODs. Could it be a hard drive problem, or a simple drive upgrade? Im currently working on trying to update all my drivers to see if that will fix it. All help is appreciated.

Hey Guys,

I running windows 98 on a Gateway desktop with a HP Laser Jet 6L Printer, Here's my situation:

I can't figure this one out. I had to print out about 40 pages of a 2
page document in Word. I go under file/print/change the number of
copies to 40. What happens is, the printer is only printing 1 copy of
each page and isn't recognizing that I want 40 copies. So if I have a 2
page document, or a 3 page document, I get all the pages but not any
additional copies. (What is strange is that the printer window icon
shows the printer assigned to print 40 copies, but if it's only a 2 page
document the printer just stops after 2 pages) Nothing else unusual with
the printer itself and so far I just noticed it today and seems to be
only related to Word. Note that if I print Multiple pages of SINGLE page docs, everything is fine. I don't know what could be wrong.


A:Can't Print Multiple Copies of Multiple Page Documents on HP Laser Jet 6L

Which driver are you using? HP installs 3 different ones for the 6L and the PCL one doesn't always work right. Could be a memory or spool setting as well.

Last couple weeks i've been having a large amount of bluescreens, including but not limited to bccodes 116, d1, 4e, 1a, 50 and 7a. Last night it also froze two or 3 times with no bluescreen. I recently upgraded my Phenom 9550, Biostar A770E and 6GB of DDR2-800 with an i5-2500k, an MSi P67S-C43 and 4GB of DDR3-1333. The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.

Yesterday I formatted my HDD and did a clean install of windows in hopes that my problems were just driver conflicts, so as of now i only have 3 crash dumps, 4e, d1 and 1a. 4e and 1a in BlueScreenView only show ntoskrnl as the culprit and no other drivers. d1 points at both ntfs.sys and ntoskrnl. A couple of the old crash dumps pre-format were citing nVidia and DirectX drivers.

I've put my RAM through 16hrs+ of memtest86+ testing, and used the windows memory diagnostic and the memory test in my BIOS. I also checked my PSU voltages with a multimeter, all of them check out. My graphics card is moody and sometimes artifacts heavily in games, sometimes works fine. Temperatures are not an issue, My GPU gets to about 72C in games and 86C in furmark torture testing without crashing. my CPU sits around 38C idle, 50-60 load, 70-80 in p95 without crashing.

Intel Core i5-2500k (stock cooler and clock)

A:Multiple BSODs, multiple BCCodes, does not happen in safe mode.

(The problems didn't start with the hardware upgrade, just escalated.)

so you changed out your motherboard/cpu/memory and did a clean reinstall of windows. so the only things left are video card/harddrive or power. have you updated your video card drivers? also try running chkdsk on the harddrive.

We have three medical clinics and the front desk staff float from clinic to clinic depending on their schedule.

I only started here a few months ago and I am working on upgrading their Dell xp systems to Windows 7 systems.

The problem begins to crop up when say a user named Sally will come in and sit down at this system for the first time.. Well, she needs to login, click on outlook icon, let it find her exchange PST and copy settings to her user profile, then she launches the application for the scanner that she uses to scan in ID's and insurance cards for every patient coming in.. The scanner is set to default settings and needs to be tweaked on color depth and double sided, etc.. Then after that, she needs to launch her Medical EMR application.. and then choose various options in the citrix client, ..

TL;DR - Each user needs to spend 20 minutes resetting the defaults at this updated system.

Well this is fine except, I am planning on updating 2 front desk systems at each clinic, the user Sally will need to do all these things EACH time she finds herself sitting down at a system I just swapped out the previous evening.

My thought is this, put a single system down in one clinic and let it sit a week giving most of the float users a chance to work on it for a day, setting all of their preferences etc.

Once I get a bunch of them with user profiles on the local drive, grab an image of that drive and just deploy that to each system I roll out..

Note that the system was not initially set up to capture the dmp files so all the earliest ones are missing.

I had a large music library in a folder called music.

I installed itunes, and it decided to re-organize all of my files... So now i have 1,111 (that's right one-thousand one-hundred and eleven) sub-folders in the music folder, each containing a number of sub folders, and each sub folder has only one of two music files in it....

I would be laughing hysterically if there was simply an undo button, but there isn't.

It could literally take six months to manually go to the bottom of each folder tree, pull the one song, past it in the root folder, and then delete the folder it came from, over 8,000 for each of the files in my library.

So the question is: is there some utility i can use to pull all of the files at once, and then delete all of the folders left behind?

Hey there,

So just to start things off, I'm 18 and don't really have much technical knowledge when it comes to computer hardware and errors, etc.

I started getting BSODs a while back, but they weren't very frequent, so I uninstalled all the programmes I had on my laptop and it stopped for the most part, so I assumed that was the problem.
As time went on up until now, they have been getting much more frequent, with the error message at the top stating something different each time, getting what seemed more serious. Sometimes when I get 1 BSOD, it would BSOD again on Startup, then again after that, which is rather frustrating haha.
I was reluctant to posting on forums, but it's come to the point of either fixing it logically, or ending up punching the screen xD

I can't really define when it happens, as it's more often some times than others, I have a hinch it has something to do with my graphics card though, as I would be playing a game, then I'd open up a new tab and watch a video then get BSOD at some point.
However it happens (less frequently for the most part) when idle or with minimum programmes running.

The programmes I mainly use on the laptop is:

Google Chrome
Sony Vegas Pro 11 (Video Editing Software)
Total Media Extreme (Personal Video Recording Software)

I can't remember any of the actual error codes, but some of the display messages i can remember are:

I built a computer recently. Since day one I get BSODs but the drivers, and Bug/Checks listed are never the same.
I was thinking it couldn't be a single device or driver so I've:

Replaced the MOBO.
Repair Installed the OS.
Replaced the RAM.

It BSOD'd multiple times between each change.

The only things I've run are IE/FF and Ableton Live 9. Ableton is usually running during the BSOD but it was not the last time.

I'm not new to Batch Files but i have a requirement that i can't seem to get my head around, I'm sure it must be simple'ish..

I have 2 .txt files (Locations.txt | Files.txt)
Locations is a list of directoriesFiles is a list of file names

I would like to write a Batch Script that would loop through each location in the Locations.txt for files names that match any in Files.txt

I think i may need to write a for loop to cycle through the locations but then i'm not sure how i would pass the file names through for it to check for.

Basically if it does find any of those file names in any of the location i would want it to echo a message.

I visited this forum (or a similar one) many years ago now and was told to make HijackThis logs. Not sure if this is still a thing at all but I made some anyway and i'll attach those.
I also took a screengrab of all the explorer.exe's running
Hope you can help me, and I can provide any other things you need

Sounds simple, but I cannot find a similar solved post.

I have a list of people (several hundred) in a worksheet and a list of zipcodes on another. The list of zipcodes (534 total) is a list of all zipcodes within a radius of multiple locations (one each for < 50 miles and one for >50 but less than 180 for each location). Both lists are maintained manually, I just need to lookup all the people with a zipcode that matches whatever list is selected. I am thinking the user selects the zipcode list to use from a simple validation dropdown but I am at a loss of how to return the list of people and their data.

I have attached an example file, I am looking to return the results on the "Who" tab. I have created the location selection from the header row of the Zipcode worksheet, I just need some help returning the People.

As always, TIA

Good day all

Learner here, reasonably OK with Excel, well some of it, but struggling with VBA.

I have a Excel 2013 workbook with 96 worksheets in it. Each sheet records hours worked on projects in that week and is summarised. Using VBA I want to copy each sheets summary range, BH3: BI390, to a collection sheet and sum as I do so, i.e. copy, paste special add, them to get a record of hours worked to date on the projects.

There are four other sheets which I do not want to analyise and I think I know how to exclude them.

I realise I can do this using 3D formula but the number of sheets increase by one each week and I don't believe that 3D formulas can accommodate this whereas I understand VBA can?.

I have spent a couple of days searching various forums about this and cannot find an answer. It seems to me it ought to be a relatively simple operation but then what do I know.

I have tried recording a macro to do a similar thing, copy past special and add, on one sheet and then adapting to suit with no success.

Following is the code I tried following this approach, don't laugh.
Sub ConsolSheets()
Dim ws As Worksheet

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

For Each ws In Worksheets
If ws.Name <> "Master" And ws.Name <> "Log" And ws.Name <> "Total Summary" And ws.Name <> "Consolidate" Then

Hello All-
I am part of team of people who are experiencing a weird issue that we cannot seem to pin point the root cause of;
So far the only commonality between the computers seems to be Windows 7 and LabTech Software.
I, personally have seen the issue occur on 3 separate computers. It happens when you reboot the machine. However, we have a large network on machines on various clients and we are noticing the issue on a certain percentage of our clients, and then a certain percentage of their machines. It does not appear to be spreading, but it has affected a great number of computers.
One of the computers was unable to install windows updates, .NET seemed to have been turned off, unable to turn it on, event viewer was inaccessible, restoring windows worked the first few times and now the restore will not even work. (that computer is hosed after experiencing the crash 4 times)
Another computer, which I am currently on, is still repairing and rebooting into windows. I rebooted into a restore point from yesterday morning "after the crash." The user used the computer all day yesterday without issue. We decided that we would use it to perform some test on...
I booted it into safe mode and ran an MBAM scan.
I found 2527 threats and attempted to remove them (necessary reboot)
computer would not boot up, necessary restore.
tried to remove malware bytes which was still there, but could not, downloaded a removal tool recommended by MBAM, removed prog... Read more

Last week I started receiving BSODs, and after the first one it got to the point where my computer was not booting up and my hard drive was beeping very angrily at me. I was not sure what all the problems were, however I also knew that there was something seriously wrong with my hard drive, so I replaced it with a new hitachi. After installing windows and running smoothly (updating everything and installing) for several hours, I had a blue screen again. I ran memtest86, and received 0 errors, so I'm assuming it's not my RAM, and because it's a new installation of windows and a new hardrive I'm assuming those aren't the issues. I am planning on taking it in to a shop tomorrow to see if they can diagnose what's malfunctioning, but if someone here can tell enough, then I would appreciate it.

Blue screens happened at multiple temperatures (~20C ~36C)

A:BSOD Multiple times multiple errors 0x0000001A

Hello and welcome, please try the steps below.

Based on the bugchecks, I would recommend you follow and complete the steps given below:1. If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop. Reset any changed values back to default and reset/clear CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Uninstall any overclocking tool as these can also be a reason of blue screens.

2. Uninstall your current antivirus software. It can be a cause of BSOD very often. Please remove it with its removal tool and use Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Malwarebytes is a great combination with it. Go through this thread for more info.

3. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

4. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check windows for integrity violations. Run it up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

5. Make scans with Kaspersky TDSskiller and ESET Online scanner.

6. Perform a Clean Start up, this will help avoid any problematic applications from bugging the system.

7. Use Revo Uninstaller Free to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advanced Mode and uninstall the software, delete the leftover registry entries.

8. Use Crystal Disk Info to... Read more
