Preferred Solution: shortcuts malfunction program access malfunction

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: shortcuts malfunction program access malfunction

did it give you the option to back up before wiping? if so you can use that, or try system restore in safe mode.

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

I must add, because i'm sure this has something to do with it, the program is 32bit. family tree maker 16 to be exact. I wanted to try to load it in compatibility mode.

There is no need to load the program in the compatibility mode.
Insert the disc
let Photoshop open
close Photoshop
open Windows (file) Explorer

See if you see an EXE* file named setup or install. Use that to start the install.

Hi Guys

A few days ago, my free Edition AVG showed a trojan alert (Trojan horse Generic10.PWU, which it allegedly fixed) after i unzipped and installed a program. Since then, I keep getting error msg's that AVG launcher and WLLogin.exe stops working, every half hour and sometimes other programs like msnmsger. Besides that i can't browse in firefox or IExplorer (i can still browse in Safari and use MSN). And furthermore when i open IExplorer, it opens up fans with this address (don't know if it'ill do any good)
http://83.149.75.33/info.png?cmp=ghr...&lid=http&z=us
which it can't display, fortunately.
Now the virus alert have shown 3 times for the same trojan as well as something in the virus vault, AVG calls "Virus found Lop". AVG found 4 of those yesterday when i did a scan of the computer, all in Temp internet files dir except the last trojan which was found in C:\Users\Tr?ffel\AppData\Temp
So i ran through the self help tutorial you have here on the site and it helped get rid of the "fan pop-ups" in IE, but my computer is exeptionally slow even though i just upgraded its RAM.
One thing i could not do in the tutorial was to do the online scan, though i think that it was the site that has crashed and that it does not have anything to do with my computer, so i have scanned my computer a couple of times with AVG and Ad-Aware from lavasoft for spyware.

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....
?? CHROME, AVAST, FIREFOX all show DEP (permanent). All others DISABLED.....
?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

Whenever I connect a USB into my laptop i receive a "USB Device Not Recognized" Message.

the notice says that the device has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it.

Then it turns into an unknown device.

I have searched all over the net for a fix to this but I cannot get a working one.

I have also tried the USB on other computers and it works perfectly fine, it's a problem with my laptop.

I have tried my pendrive, ipod and mobile phone and all three do not work.

Thankyou.

Just last night my computer was fine before I went to sleep, but when I awoke it would'nt start. Allowing it to boot normally it attempts to startup from IPv4 (fails) and then IPv6 (also fails) and moves on to say No bootable device - Please restart system. Attempting to go into bios (f2 for me) to check the startup order it freezes entirely. Attempting to boot from a disk doesn't seem to do anything (currently attempting to, but it has sat idle for over two hours without any signs of it ever reading the disk). What may be wrong, what can I do, or what do I need to replace?

Hi, all, first post here, so bear with me. I've had this Y580 for a few years now, and it's been functioning rather nicely throughout, just with consistently high temperatures. A few days ago, the performance abruptly dropped considerably, and so I checked my temperatures. They were absolutely ridiculous, even for what this thing averages; I was doing around 95 degrees on the GPU, and it was eternally downclocking to 135MHz. I thought it was just a cooling issue at first, and tried everything, but then when playing around in Energy Management, I noticed something really strange. If I hit the dust removal button, the fan wouldn't change in sound at all. In fact, I could barely hear the fan. I opened up the back cover and inspected the fan. While it was running, it was running at a ridiculously low speed, and would not speed up no matter what I was doing. This is a serious issue; have any of you encountered this before? Anyone have good suggestions for how I should go about dealing with this?

Hi ThunderBIrd2678 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Manual cleaning using compressed air can , checking the gears itself if there are strands slowing it down and reapplying thermal paste ensuring contacts are good as initial step.
 
Uninstalling and reinstalling the energy manager tool from the support site  under power management can help.
 
Since fan system is still mechanical in nature, as wear and tear may now be affecting its performance, you may decide on replacing it if you have neccessary tools and skills using the manual (page 58) as guide.
Thermal module with fan in item 11 page 78 FRU number as compared the parts look up for the part number .
 
Hope this helps answering your query.
 
Regards

Hi guys,

In a bit of a pickle right now! I have 2 USB devices which used to work on my laptop but now don't, Vista is chucking up an error saying the USB device has malfunctioned. First item is a Polaroid digicam, the other an all-in-one memory card reader.

I have uninstalled all USB devices and restarted but same error popping up at the bottom right hand side.

Kind of stuck here! My iPod Touch, my wifes iPod Nano and several other USB devices work fine so I'm stumped!!

Cheers

Paul

Hello all,
I have a Toshiba Portege M400 Tablet PC with Vista Ultimate. Currently my stylus refuses to work. To be more precise, it works for several seconds after boot-up, but fails to work after that. I have gone into Safe Mode and the stylus/tablet works perfectly fine. This lead to me to believe that there is some sort of conflict with an application of some sort, but I am not able to pinpoint where that problem is. The following is my HiJackThis log. Note that I am currently running the WMIDiag script in attempt to determine if it is an error caused bu WMI.

I have MS windows XP and upon booting up I get a box that says. "The Executable files in Port Magic are corrupted Please re-install

I have no such disk to install with. Please anyone can you help?
 

A:Windows XP malfunction

Port Magic is one of those near useless programs that profess to make networking easier . . If you install it intentionally, you can reinstalll it here

If you did not intentionally install it, you may be able to uninstall it in Add/Remove Programs . . you should be able to uncheck it in msconfig to stop the message.

Running Office 2000 in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

All Office modules have been running successfully for a few years. Today however when starting Word this error message is received:

Windows Word has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

All other Office modules continue to run without problem. The installation disc was inserted and the installation correction option chosen, which appeared to execute without problem. But Word continues to fall over:

There was a problem sending the command to the program

Can anyone advise? There is a strong desire to curl up in a dark corner and weep ....

Well, before few days I see that when I'm surfing on internet that some web pages ˝can not be displayed˝ or return to my home web page, cannot enter ˝Spybot search & destroy˝ home page and microsoft update page and some others security web pages. Before all that one day I instaled IE8 (and maybe something more) but I remove it, now I can't download IE6 or IE7 or IE8 because when I click on DOWNLOAD - that wbe page cannot be displayed (allways some kind of error 404, etc, etc). I completly check web settings (and there is lot of them, lower security levels in settings, added trusted sites, but still nothing) maybe activex control error? When I go to news web pages, facebook, nudity, and some others - all ok! But security of my PC is something what bothers me....
I have AVAST but when did not found virus I remowe it and instal windows one care (fortunatly)... I have few more spyware remove programs but they found few threats before few days and nothing, again same web situation... Malwarebytes found 2 threats in registry but all is situation stay like before....
Maybe Ccleaner program erase something from Windows data?
Still don't know: do I have virus/trojan/spyware... or windows error???

I'm trying to set up a wireless network but I get a message that the flash disk is write protected. How do I remove the write protect? Also, the disk no longer shows up in 'My Computer' as 'Flash Disk' but as SOFTWARE'. Is the disk knackered?

It started with my email account saying it needed to be updated, okay no problem except it wouldn't update the settings. I then deleted that account in hopes that reinstalling it would work fine like it has in the past but now it won't add my account back.
i've tried looking it up and no luck with an answer, this lead to bigger problems in that i'm trying to access some of the administrative tools only to get error messages saying that the file can't be found or doesn't exist. it seems almost like a bug got
into my system and i really don't want to have to do a wipe yet again. any suggestions to try? i know it's pretty vague but that's all that i have. there's no error codes when trying to open the tools.
