Computer crashes when I use AVG

Q: Computer crashes when I use AVG

I run AVG 8.5 (free edition) actually I've used it since I got my lapton last year. A week or so ago it started crashing (computer shut off all by itself, forcing me to manually start it back up) One day I noticed it only crashed when I scanned with AVG. So I uninstalled it and it hasn't crashed since. How can I fix this?

Preferred Solution: Computer crashes when I use AVG

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Computer crashes when I use AVG

download ESET nod32 instead, do a scan in safe mode with Nod32, and se if your computer has any viruses. it could be that a virus reacts to the virus scan, and turns completely of on impulse. because it doesnt wanna go away.
so get ESET, one of the best virus programs to be sure, it is also the one to be used if your messenger is infected. just scan in safe mode, and it erases every single virus in its database.

My computer started crashing when I would try to run Norton AV . Then it started crashing when viewing pictures and videos. Took to repair shop and they could only find some spyware. I told that that everything was backed up so to just refomat. They also tested my ram and said it was fine in the testing but suggested changing it if the problem continued. It started crashing agian soon after getting it home. I replaced my ram and it still crashes. However yesterday I did get a successful virus scan.. everything looked fine with that. It is and Asus bourd, AMD 2200, Win XP with all the current windows updates. Any help would be appreciated.

PS
I had this problem a year ago and it seemed that replaceing a ram stick fixed it. When researching that someone suggested it could be the cache on the mother board. Could that be possible?

A:Computer crashes. Have reformatted and changed ram, still crashes

hey dude i got a thing u can do first of all start the computer in safe mode then run your antivirus program and scan
next if there are any viruses that have been found you can then remove them
once done reboot and try scaning again but in normal mode to see if the problem has been fixed

I don't know whether I have a malware problem, or a hard-drive-in-death-throes problem, or what. But I figured it was best to start here, so if it's not a virus I can go over to the XP forum with that ruled out.

Over the past few months my desktop has been steadily driving me nuts. First it began giving me BSODs at random intervals, anything from a day to a month apart. (Currently, about once every three weeks.) The most common error is 0x0000008E, but I've also had 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x1000000A, 0x0000004E (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT), 0x0000007F, 0x0000000A (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL), and 0x00000050 (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA). Usually it crashes at startup, but it has taken as much as twenty minutes. I've tried defragging the hard drive, using a registry cleaner, and replacing Sygate firewall (see below) but nothing appears to have worked.

Then Sygate starting occasionally crashing while I was online. I replaced it with PC Tools free firewall, which hasn't had any problems. (Yet...)

Somewhere in the last several months (hard to say whether it was before or after Sygate and the BSODs, it seems to have been creeping up for a while) Firefox developed an increasing tendency to hang. It reached the point where it was basically non-functional for a good quarter hour after connecting. During that time doing anything - maximising or minimising windows, accessing the start menu - took forever. Then Firefox started crashing - constantly. I worked my way through the official trou...

A:[SOLVED] Can't open My Computer/Documents/Control Panel -computer crashes

Hi Anamarija and welcome to TSF !

Does the problem also happen in safe mode ?

Unplug all your USB devices. Use a PS/2 mouse and keyboard for the time of the troubleshooting.

Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer. Tell us if it finds any errors on the hard drive. If you couldn't see the scan's results you'll find them in the event viewer under application in the latest winlogon entry (click on the title of the source column to sort them alphabetically).

Did the BSOD or the errors in the eventviewer mention any .exe, .dll or .sys file ?

We'll need the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump, problem is you may not be able to browse your drive to zip and attach them with your computer. Copy them to some floppy or usb drive using the command prompt : start => run => cmd. Type copy c:\windows\minidump\*.dmp x: x being the volume letter that corresponds to your usb or floppy drive. Then with another computer zip them and attach the .zip file to your next post using the manage attachments button.

Double click the errors in the event viewer, click on the third button on the right (this copies the information in the memory) and right-click => paste the complete error message here.

Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. See if there are any devices with a red cross, yellow exclamation point or whatever in front of their name. If you find anything related to your webcam then right-click =>... Read more

I have been having a long running problem with my computer. It started out as a lack of internet access which turned out tI o be a bad virus. I fixed that problem by doing a complete reformat of my system. I thought that that would fix the problem and it did for a bit.

After a week or so I started having BSOD. I went to a computer shop and we went to work on the issue. The BSOD's were showing that there was an error with my sata connection. I replaced the cables. The problem kept happening, so I replaced the motherboard and hard drive with a complete reformat again. Then I continued to have the same issues which included crashes, disappearing icons, weird error messages (x86 errors) and once in a while a BSOD. The BSOD's all say there's still an error with the sata connection.

I then decided to replace the power supply and upgraded to an evga 1300 watt. I replaced my case as well to a bigger one. I even replaced the ram sticks That seemed to fix the problems for a while and the BSOD's became very rare, but after a lot of use the weird error messages became very common. I really can't use the computer any more. I'm typing this on my laptop.

The computer shop I go to say's this is probably a hardware issue. They can't seem to figure it out. I've had it in multiple times. This is a nightmare for a computer owner. I have replaced virtually all the parts and my computer is still utterly unusable. The only program I installed since the last reformat wa... Read more

Holy.....
uh...
Why don't you just buy a new one! WOW.. Sorry..
Well, you SHOULDN'T have played with drivers...That is what's up.
Tried re-formatting AFTER doing those changes?
That computer shop owner though...I don't know what to say.
1) try reformatting to a version that is supported by the bios..(Check if it supports x64)...(fully ready)
2) post every error you get and attempt to find solution to each one. (Getting tired)
3) Can you mention WHEN did certain errors happen? before...after changing Processor and Graphic Card? (Getting worried)
4) Try lots of thing on the web. (hope time)
5) Revert back to the old virtual stuff. (shameful return)
6) take off the good pieces and attempt to use it on another computer or sell it. (Hopeless)

This afternoon, my computer began crashing whenever I try to open one of the more important files, like my computer or the control panel. Everything works correctly on safe mode, and I've tried driver verification, but there's upwards of 200 unregistered drivers, so I'm not entirely sure what to do. Are there any drivers I should look for to move away from the system32 folder? Or is there any other way to solve this?

Also, I haven't installed any new software recently.

Thanks,

So I have recently bought a Samsung 850 Evo 120 GB ssd drive. My HP computer now has a 1TB hitachi hard drive and a ssd drive. The computer loads from the SSD drive. To try and maintain space, I have tried to download MS Office on the HDD. But when I install office, while in the middle of installing, my computer always crashes. This has happened on all three of my attempts to install office so far. Is there any reason why I should not be able to install office on the HDD or do I have to install it on the SSD?

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Computer crashes while installing MS Office on a Computer with 2 drive

It's always best to have your programs loaded onto the Windows drive, which in your case is the Samsung SSD.

It would be best if you could supply a screen shot of Disc Management making sure it covers all discs & the information. This will show if you have any other problems.

This tutorial shows how to do a screen shot.

I was using my microsoft office word program, and it all of a sudden went funky, like short circuiting out, then a blue screen popped up saying that the program I was using was bad and causing my computer to crash, so my computer was shutting down before it crashed. Then it shut down and came back up asking if I wanted to go back to a restored or previous thing, something like that, (a restore point), and it said it would probably turn off and on several times through out and could take several minutes, then the computer turned off and back on and the screen would not turn on... I have a dell all in one computer, so I do not have a separate tower from my monitor. What happened? How can I fix this? Any one out there have any ideas? I was not even on the internet at the time.

When you first turn it on, can you see the Dell logo?  If so, does it show the Windows logo after that?
Do you recall details of what the blue screen said?
 
If you can see the Dell logo, then try these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

Hi,

I'm having trouble with my new computer. Recently, its always crashing on me, especially on start-ups and shutdowns. The computer just resets (makes a noise that usually happens only when i turn on the comp).
Afterward, I get a "System has recovered from a serious error" message (attached).

My comp is a Windows XP Pro, AMD Athlon 3800+ X2 processor, ASUS M2A-VM motherboard.

I got my new computer last July, and up until a couple of weeks ago, everything was still fine.

Any advice appreciated, thxs!

Hello guys

During the last two weeks maybe more, my computer crashes, meaning its stuck. It usually happens when playing a video, listening to music or playing a game.

The sound continues to play the same note and i cannot do anything.

Here is what i found from my event viewer:

The description for Event ID ( 65535 ) in Source ( STacSV ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Connection to the COM Skpi Storage Interface failed.

Here is what i tried to do :

1. Checked both of my hard drives for errors and i defraged them both
2. I have Spyware doctor and run multiple scans.
3. Used various programs to see if have anything on my computer like a trojan, like Registry Mechanic, Registry cleaner, Spybot and super cleaner.

Unfortunately i dont know what else to do and the computer keeps crashing at least 3 times a day.

Can you help please

Thank you.

Hello Sevenforums. 3 - 4 months back i decided to buy myself a new computer, i started by buying a new graphic card (Geforce GTX 560TI TOP), CPU (AMD Phenom II X6 1100T) and a new Power Supply (650W Cooler Master). But my motherboard was to old for the new CPU, so i bought a new motherboard aswell (M5A88-V EVO) and a computer tower (Cooler Master CM Storm Sniper Black).

My brother and my cousin helped me get everything working, when we were done my brother downloaded the bios and the drivers for the motherboard and graphic card.

I downloaded the game i bought too. (Battlefield 3) and suddently my computer just crashed with no warning. i tried to turn it on and open the game again, but the same thing happened. I was running the game once again. and checked if anything overheated.

But nothing did. My cpu wasnt even close to be hot either. A few days later i went to a Computer Store. They had a look at it. They tried to update the bios and the drivers again, they also tried to reinstall my windows(7). This been going on for 1 - 2 months, He told me to get a new harddrive, cause it was to old and broken.

Hi!

I've encountered some difficult problems to deal with when it comes to my computer. It was built for exactly three years ago and I've never had any problems until now.

The 6th October while I was playing Battlefield 3 Beta the computer crashed and I had to restart it. During the boot a warning sign told me that the CPU was overheated and that's why the computer crashed. So after replacing the original Intel CPU-fan I assumed the problem would've been solved. However, after playing BF3B for 10 minutes the computer crashes again. I've checked all the temps and it shows just fine for the CPU and graphic card. I've played games like Crysis 2 with high settings without any problems, and the same problem occurs when I play low requirement games like Battlefield Play4Free.

After looking on google, the only cause for this problem I can find is overheated CPU, which mine isn't.
The graphic card's driver is updated, I'm not sure about the motherboard, as I'm not sure what I should look for. My computer specs:

The errorcode I get from Microsoft is: BCCode: 124 BCP1: 0000000000000000 BCP2: FFFFFA8008361548 BCP3: 0000000000000000 BCP4: 00000000000.

When I play Cs:Go,after a minute or so,the 2 monitors connected to my GPU just go black,my third monitor connected to my iGPU crashes shortly after.It then shows me the BIOS setup.
Why is thing happening and how to prevent it? Everything worked great when I had my old GTX1050.
Im thinking maybe its my PSU,but I really don?t know.
Cant even do a Bench mark.Crashes and does the same thing when its supposed to test my GPU

The 1050 took it power from the PCIe slot if it was the standard 1050, it did not have a separate power connection. It drew a max of 75w
The 2060 requires an 8 pin power connection from the PSU and draws 160Watt max

It could be the PSU what make and full model is it

This past monday I went to ebaums world to check it out. I got a server busy window popping up. I didnt click it for the fact that it could be some kind of pop up asking for permission to do something. Well minutes after that I started getting a tons of pop ups for all kinds of advertisements. I ended up having to disable my internet connection and check out my processes. I found that I had faceback.exe getmodule23.exe and a few other adware programs. I managed to get a copy of adaware and that took care of most of the adware programs, except for faceback and getmodule. I found out how to get rid of faceback, but the only thing I can't get rid of is this getmodule.

About 3 wks ago I started getting the BSOD every time I start my computer. It usually happens about 20-25 minutes after startup and it doesn?t matter what I?m doing at the time. It saying the computer has shut down. It reports an error at 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x894883DC, 0x89488268, 0x805D1140).

Before the crash the hard drive light illuminates and the computer freezes and then the crash. The light stays on and the only way to get it going again is after the memory dump is done I turn the power off. I then turn it back on and everything is normal for the rest of the day. I?m running Windows Media Center Edition 2005 SP2 with latest updates, 2 GBs ram, 1 WD HD 160GIG SATA drive (partitioned C,D,E,F) and 2 Maxtor 200GIG PATA drives (H and I).. The only thing that was added to the computer was a GB of ram about 7 months ago. I have done some troubleshooting but have run out of ideas. I have updated all my software to the latest versions, scanned for virus, removed the extra GB of ram, ran diagnostics on my RAM and the WD hard drive with no reported errors. I finally decided to format my C Drive and reinstall the OS and some basic apps (AVG, Office 2003, Adobe Reader 8) but the next day it happened again.

However we have still been having issues where my computer crashes any time after start up with only 1 or 2 startups successful out of maybe 50. Me and my dad are unsure if this is a motherboard issue because it keeps booting to bios for example.

i have a laptop and a few months ago, it was always crashing due to driver issues. i found the drivers and thought it was fixed, but i was wrong. I have a picture of my desktop and if somone could look at it and possibly tell me what is wrong and how to fix it, i would greatly appreciate it.

A:computer crashes

Well we are looking at either driver issues (which you mentioned) file association errors (which is what the desktop message is saying) or both.

I get no sense that the two could be related, but possible. Why do you describe hardware issues, then post an error message for a file association problem, as I do not think a file association problem will cause any real problems other than you can't open the file by double-clicking it.

To fix that, right click on the file's icon and select option "Open With". On the box that follows, click the Application you want to open the particular file with (such as Windows Media Player, or whatever) and make sure to click the box "Always open this type of file with this program" (or words to that effect). Hit "Apply" and close the box. Now double click the file's icon and if it works the App you selected should launch the file.

This does not sound like the serious issue you are concerned with. What other symptoms are you having ?

Hi, I was hoping for a little help here. I can run my computer for hours, I can leave it on all day if i want without any problems. But when i run certain games my computer hangs constantly. Counter-strike hangs a few times, not too often though. GuildWars and City of Heroes hangs constantly! I can't run CoH for more than 20mins usually without it hanging. Occasionally though I have no problems and it can run for hours. World of Warcraft hangs occasionaly although it isn't as severe as the other two. I can't access windows at all, the entire system locks up.

I've been trying to figure out the problem, at first I thought it was my computer overheating, so I installed an extra fan and adjusted the airflow as well as install a temperature sensor program. My CPU runs at 55-60C, while my MoBo runs at 30C. My 2 HDDs run at 35-40C and there are 2 other temperatures which I think may be my graphics card? They're 55-60C as well. In my Bios my computer is set to shut down at 85C. But if my computer was overheating wouldn't the entire computer shut down?

I also attempted to run drivercleaner on my video card drivers, and reinstall the newest drivers. Still having the same problem. I also cleaned up some files, defragged my drives. My memory should be fine, I'm running 2 512mb Corsairs. So I dunno, any suggestions?

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Those seem to be all signs of an overheating issue.
Whats the watt on your PSU you have installed?
Reseat your video card and your memory. Take some canned air and blow out the fans inside the case and also the video card fan if it has one.

It started fine, i was able to play games. Then it started to get worse and worse. I sent it back into the company i bought it from, and they said that it was an OS error and that the hardware was fine. I DO NOT BELIEVE THEM ONE BIT! I just installed Windows 7. The pc crashed and froze a few times while trying to Boot from CD to install windows 7. When the pc freezes, my USB logitech g5 mouse will turn off. So i normally used that as a way to tell if my pc crashed and if i wasnt able to wake it from hibernation.

Also, the pc will crash and repeat a sound over and over.. most of the time it picked some strange noise to repeat. I opened up Microsoft word, and it also crashed. Then after the reboot, i opened word again and it was fine.

I think I have a very similar problem. Do You have also trouble with getting restarted after it crashes?
What are Your computer specs? If You want someone to help You here, You need to give information on Your computer. As I am interested in knowing, if You may be dealing with the same problem as I, I would also appreciate in knowing what computer You're using.
I myself have an Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz, 2.84 GHz, 1 G RAM with a MSI 848P Neo-V motherboard and 650W Thermaltake W0163RED PSU (Active PFC, 14cm FAN, Modular, Temp. Con, 6xS-ATA, 2xPCI-e, 7-ATA).

I'm now quite sure, that my computer's problem was overheating. One very easy way to deal with it - get rid of dust. Open up Your computer and clean the dust. Very important is to clean the dust from the fan cooling the processor, which tends to collect on the heatsink. I had so much dust in there, that there was no way cool air from the fan could have reached the processor. After taking off the heatsink and brushing it clean the situation has improved, although I am thinking on buying a stronger cooling device. But You could also start in there...

Hello TechForum! ^^

Well, I just registered and that's because I have a problem with my computer and I believe you guys can help me out with this.

This has been happening for quite sometime now. Since I believe I can fix any problem on my own but it seems to me that I've proven myself wrong. Not too long ago my PC has been shutting off by itself. I have a HP Pavilion PC. The big button used to start up my PC blinks forever if I don't unplug the cable out of my panel. Note that the crash does not happen alot.. it just crashes once a day, mostly from being on alot. So I didn't really pay attention to this. Though I knew something may be wrong.

I'm an intense gamer. I love games alot, either it would be console or the computer itself. So you can see that problems might be abit common since I play alot of intense MMORPG games that take up CPU greatly. Before while my PC crashed only once, I was playing a game that took up ALOT of ram. Though I seemed fine. Then I tried out another game, what I noticed was it was crashing as soon as I began playing the game. Which scared me alittle, seeing my PC surrendering like that to a game. So what I though was maybe my PC is just clogged up with dust. I've had this PC for 2 years so far and I haven't cleaned anything or changed anything. The processor, heat sink, cpu, fans, everything is the same when I bought this PC.

So what I did was uncrew the case of my panel, (of course the PC was off and ... Read more

A:Computer crashes by itself

Almost certainly a hardware issue. And I'm smiling to myself as I write this because this fits into the cliche'd response of it probably being your PSU or the RAM. Based on your electrical comments I would guess it is the power supply.

To eliminate the RAM, or at least attempt to, you can download and burn a memtest iso, then boot from that and run it several passes. If it can't make it a pass without freezing (but no memtest errors) I would say there is a 95% chance it is your PSU.

When the crash happens the screen goes black then there is a blue and white screen that says something about the BIOS.  Then another blue and white screen that says Checking the filing system and then Checking the disc.

I am having a terrible issue with Ad-Aware SE Personal. Everytime I boot my machine I run an Ad-Aware scan and let it do its thing and then I use Enditall to close background processes because I'm a gamer and I like to free resources for that. Anyhow, After I let Ad-Aware update the other day...couple days ago, the program seems to freeze during scans now.

It gets to around 55,000-56,000 files scanned and just freezes up. I have to work hard with ctrl+alt+delete to get it shut down. I noticed this all started after the new update file for Ad-Aware a couple days ago and after my girlfriend downloaded Yahoo Games onto my computer, which also installed Yahoo Toolbar. I uninstalled most of that now except for Yahoo Toolbar. I need to get it cleared as well. However, I am having another ongoing issue too, somewhat older than the issue I'm having with Ad-Aware. When I go into my control panel and look at add/remove programs the program list will not populate. It doesn't even when I wait a long period of time. No idea why the list just remains blank. This makes it difficult for me to remove software.

As for Ad-Aware, I finally deleted it and downloaded a new copy from download.com. However, it seems to freeze during installation. It gets to the part where it scans the computer for previous versions/ad-aware software and just sits there. I am going to run a full system scan with Norton Anti-Virus and see if that turns up anything.

Recently I felt that my 1gb of ram was a bit sluggish and decided to go purchase 4gb of ram and install it. Now, my computer has troubles starting and goes into Start up Repair where it has trouble finding a problem. Then when i finally get to login as my user everything works fine for a while (2hrs maybe) or until i try to play any of the games i have (guildwars, CS:source and Sims 2) where the screen proceeds to freeze and look a but distorted.

Now i dont know what the problem is and i have tried looking into if it is the ram i recently installed but i havent been able to come to any possible source of the problem.

Thanks Corey :D

A:Computer Crashes and Not Sure of Cause

Hi -

Did you run memtest86+ ?

http://www.memtest.org/

1 stick at a time, alternate slots.

System goes into startup repair EVERY TIME? What does it repair?

Check Event Viewer - Custom views/admin log to begin with
START | eventvwr.msc

WERCON
START | wercon - Problem History to start - 2x-click on line item provides additional info

You are x86? You know that x86 system will only use ~3.3GB of the 4GB?

Regards. . .

I have a Wireless Internet. Ok, I surf the internet for a while and my computer crashes. I start my computer back up and it gives me that send error report. So I send it and it tells me its because of my wireless internet. What is causing this?

"What is causing this?"

If I can believe what you've said, "its because of my wireless internet."

Does Windows give you a link to get more information? If not, I'd check for an updated driver for the wireless adapter.

My computer freezes over and over again. I ran adwareSE, Spybot, and my anti-virus program, all to no avail. Spybot found WildTangent, but was unable to delete it. Spybot then ran right after starting the computer, but after scanning the computer froze again. This happened several times. What I find very strange is that if I want to shut off the computer it seems very busy and it takes forever to shut down. So something is definitely going on. ( Excuse my English....) Please help!!!
