So basically, this morning, when I turned on my computer, the WELCOME blue screen stood for a bit longer than usual. Then, it moved to the desktop, but only the wallpaper showed up. I could move the mouse, but no icons or taskbar showed up. I could run Task-manager, and it said explorer.exe wasn't responding. I had to hard-reboot, and then it did the same thing :thumbsup: Tried once again, and finally it worked. I ran CCleaner and Tune-up Utilities registry cleaners. I tried shuttting down and booting 5 times, the 3rd time, it froze again, and I let it sit there for a sec. Eventually, the taskbar and the icons showed up, but none of my start-up programs showed up. Tried again, same thing. The 5th time it worked again. I'm running Malwarebytes atm, and don't tell me to system restore, this happened to me a month ago, and also two days ago :flowers:

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I would not recommend using a registry cleaner.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.With that useful warning out of the way..

I would suspect for now a heat issue has developed.

When is the last time this computer was cleaned out for dust accumulation?

You need to concentrate on the processor and video card heat sinks, using a can of compressed air will remove most dust from the computer.

On another note, you can run memory diagnostic programs to check your RAM for errors.

Here is two programs that can do this.

Memtest86 4.00 http://majorgeeks.com/Memtest86_d4226.html

Windows Memory Diagnostics http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp


You could also try re-seating your RAM sticks in their slots, as this sometimes resolves a faulty connection in the slot.

Here are two programs I am offering for checking computer temperatures.

HWMonitor http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php

SpeedFan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php


For stressing your video card here is 3dMark06 http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmark06/introduction/

Now you have most of the useful tools at your disposal that should help you diagnose your problem.

Bruce.

Thanks for the reply! I wouldn't use Registry cleaners anymore, thanks for the warning. My computer is SUPER loud sometimes, and it's pretty dusty too so that's probably the reason. I will do all the stuff you suggested, so please stay with me! :thumbsup:

Okay, I couldn't get the RAM check thing to work, I'll keep trying. The Video card thing said I needed a older version first or something like that. I'm going to go pick up some canned air later so I can clean the laptop out.

Here is my HWMonitor log:

Depending on which RAM diagnostic program you are trying to use, you may be attempting to use the program version which is meant to be put on a bootable disk, then ran by booting to the disk and running the program.

If your download you are trying to use is an ISO image, you need to use a burning program that will take the IOS image and burn the un-zipped ISO image to a disk, you can use a cd-r disk for this.

If you need a free burning program for extrating the ISO image and burning the program, I will offer you this program, it is called imgburn, it an easy to use program with a gui interface.

ImgBurn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Keep me updated on your cleaning results, I truely believe your issue is related to a proper cleaning out of your computer's CPU heat sink fins.

Bruce.

Hi.

What I did was downloaded the .zip file (The first one), and used IsoBurner to burn the .Iso file inside of the zip to a CD. When I booted with the CD in it, it just went straight to Windows. Also, my mom's ganna pick up a can of that canned air stuff. My dad knows how to use it so hopefully that will work. I will also try taking out and putting back in the memory sticks. Also, did my computer temperature look irregular?

Okay, I finally got the canned air, and I cleaned out the vents, and took out and put back in the memory sticks. Tried starting up 5 times, all of them worked normally :thumbsup: Anything else I should do?
