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

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)

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....

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 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.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

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.

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.

Hi everyone,

I'm having some strange problems with a Windows XP computer. I suspect some kind of virus/malware program/..., but am unable to find what it is.

The symptoms

Norton AntiVirus can not be started and is disabled at startup

Internet Explorer can be started normally, but it's not possible to reach any site at all. No error occurs, the blank page just doesn't change (about:blank is set as the home page)

Outlook Express can be started normally, but when trying to use it (i.e. checking for mail) it stops responding

When this was the case, I stopped alls stopable services with the standard task manager. After killing all instances of svchost.exe (7 on one count), I wait for Windows to pop up saying it has to reboot because the RPC service failed. I then abort the shutdown. The Windows XP look is gone after this and we're back to a more basic GUI, like the Windows 2000 one. The number of colors dropped as well.
Now, we've got a lot more functionallity:

Inernet Explorer works again, full Internet access

OE still doesn't seem to work right, however

Norton AntiVirus can be started
auto-update is disabled and cannot be enabled

e-mailscan is disabled and cannot be enabled

live update does not work

On first bootup of the day, my computer reaches its normal desktop display, then, after a few seconds, .wuauclt starts its interrogation of my system. This uses 100% CPU capacity (per Task Manager), and every second or third day, it causes my computer to reboot, sometimes two or three times, before the computer stabilises. (Windows XP Pro SP2, AMD Athlon 64 3000 2.1GHz, 1.25MB RAM). I have auto-update set to "Notify me, but don't automatically download and install". Is there a cure for this annoyance?

Hi,

I have a computer that is running very slowly of late. After a long search, i realized that if I close the svchost.exe process that is running RPCSs, then the computer runs with normal speed again. Of course, then the computer cannot communicate with the RPC server and everything from cut & paste to Microsoft Oulook goes crazy. I've already checked for viruses and trojans, so I am stumped on how to fix it. Anyone have any clues as to how I can fix the problem?
 

A:RPcSs Malfunction

Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.
Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

Do you by any chance have a wireless or wired microsoft mouse?

I have had a similar issue with my Wired Microsoft Mouse and its "Intellipoint" Driver

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911895

Some claim this issue only occurs with the wireless versions of certain microsoft devices. I found that for me, It occur whenever Intellipoint 6.2 was installed. The Same version of Intellipoint also caused my Vista Sidebar to cease working... as detailed here http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista-7/805947-solved-windows-sidebar-crashes-every.html

Anyway if you have a microsoft mouse/device that uses Intellipoint try removing the intellipoint software and checking if the issue still occurs. Or Try upgrading to the latest version of Intellipoint, which at the time of writing is 6.3

A good friend of mine was using her laptop (IBM Thinkpad A31 running WinXP) and spilled a very small amount of liquid (soda) on the Pause/Break-Scroll Lock/Print key block. A few minutes after, the laptop BSOD'd, giving her a 'HARDWARE MALFUNCTION' error and ***SYSTEM HALTED***. She also believes that she may have bumped it while attempting to clean the spill.

Subsequently, when she attempts to turn on the computer, the fan/power light come on (sounds as though it's booting regularly) but the screen remains black and there is an error beep sequence of 4 (short) beeps, 4 times over, and then stops (though the power light/fan remain on) like:

4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-4

This was perplexing to me, as it's no error code I've ever heard of. She believes that the error was caused by the liquid, but it was a very small amount, and was cleaned immediately.

Any help on this would be appreciated.
 

A:Laptop Malfunction

Well, soda is one of the worst things to pour in your laptop! I think at a minimum you need to have it partially disassembled to determine how much of that "very small amount" got into something critical.

I think she's very likely right about the soda, since it's very corrosive.

Yesterday, my computer worked perfectly. However, as of today I get a very peculiar situation. The startup seems to work well until I access my desktop, where the computer inexplicably freezes after one or two clicks and everything becomes unclickable. Sometimes, the screen turns white. During the freeze, I am still able to move my mouse around, but absolutely nothing responds past that, including my fervent attempts of using ctrl+alt+delete. When I use safe mode, the computer works well. So far, I have used a disk cleanup, defragment, and spyware search and destroy without any change. I have rebooted multiple times. Please help?

A:Odd startup malfunction

Hi -

See what, if anything installed in the last 24 hours -
START | type perfmon /rel

See if system restore can help - choose restore point prior to yesterday -
START | type rstrui

Run - Driver Verifier - sysnative.com - MVP

Driver Verifier must run for 24 hours minimum or until BSOD. If system BSODs, please run -

To Whom who can help, Hi, I recently noticed, in the past two days, that the top row of my keyboard (which is the esc through pg dn keys), for clarification, are not working properly. Everytime I hit the button to change my volume it somehow highlights a different area. When I press the buttons in order to change my brightness nothing happens as well. I have not dropped my computer, but I did have it connected to my TV, via HDMI cord. I have restarted my computer and an update occured but did not fix the problem. After that I shutdown my computer to see if it just needed a complete reboot, and stll no change has occured. If anyone could offer a solution that would be great! Thank you in advance and for taking the time to resolve my solution. Sincerely,Kahari

I have an HP j5780 all in one printer and my computer is a

Dell Dimension E310
Win XP SP3
P4 2.80GHz
512 Ram

The issue I am having is I get an error when trying to instal this printer. It pops up.

USB Device Not Recognized
One of the USB devices attached has Malfunctioned.

I have replaced the USB cable and tried it on another computer.
Dell XPS
Win Vista.
Intel Duo 2.20GHz
3gm Ram

The Same error comes up for both computers and the cable makes no difference. I tried installing from CD, but when it comes to the part that asks me to plug in device the installation hangs up and never completes. I also attempted calling HP but they were of no help so any suggestions would be well appreciated.

Well here's the basics of my problem. I built my grandfather a computer about a year ago. It worked fine until it started not outputting any sound. I consider myself to be quite proficient in computer repair, but this one's really got my stumped.

Well, basics first. Hardware setup is:
Asus A8V Deluxe Mobo
3400+ Processor
512 RAM
Audigy 2 ZS
Radeon 9600 Pro
Windows XP 2002 Edtn. with Service Pack 2

Here's a basic outline of what I tried.

First, I checked to make sure that nothing was muted. I checked in control panel and in Windows Media Player and Creative's player, whatever that's called. I've checked every option that I can find and nothing is muted, and my devices are correctly selected. I checked by plugging the speakers into the onboard audio and the Audigy 2 ZS. Neither one produced any sound. I also know that the speakers do indeed work.

I also checked in device manager to see if the computer is/was having driver conflicts. It is not indicated there that there are any problems.

I've already tried the sound troubleshooter through Windows Help and it just told me to go ask someone else because it was stumped as well.

Then, since I know the Asus A8V has a bootup speech thing, I plugged the speakers into the onboard audio port and upon startup the motherboard output audio through the speakers.

After that, since I knew that the computer could indeed produce sound, I uninstalled the Creative drivers and then reinstalled them. When I ... Read more

A:Sound malfunction

I fixed it by removing the Audigy. I don't know why or how or what, but it works now. So GG and we'll leave it as it is. Hopefully this'll help someone else.
