As of today I'm taking more detailed notes on it—I'll be happy to share with anybody who wants to see them—but I'll probably never get a complete list because inevitably some of the crash reports will appear and then quickly disappear before I can make a note of what it was that crashed.
I've made some attempts to resolve this before, with no success, but for the most part I didn't worry about it because the crashes alone didn't appear to be causing any problems. But over the last few months my computer's overall performance has been getting noticeably worse, and I've been seeing signs of a much more serious problem:
- I've been getting more crash reports than I used to (though not by a huge margin).
- Often when I start my computer, after waiting a few minutes to get all the crashes out of the way and let the system more or less stabilize, I won't be able to open Firefox. I double-click the icon, the pointer turns into an hourglass for a second or two, and then nothing else happens (though when I go to my task manager there's a Firefox process running). I've stopped trying to open Chrome or IE, because typically when I have this problem with Firefox I have it with my other browsers too (although, now that I think about it, I'm not totally certain about IE, but I'm not going to try to re-create the problem right now to figure it out). When this happens all I can think to do is to restart my computer, and it used to be that one restart was usually enough, but lately it's becoming common for me to have to restart it three or four times before Firefox will finally open.
- When I do get Firefox open, it tends to run slowly, and will go through periods where it stops responding for 5-30 seconds or so, then recovers, and then stops responding again less than 30 seconds later. This cycle goes on until it either crashes fully, or I can catch it responding long enough to close some of the tabs that seem like they might be consuming a lot of resources.
- MS Word, GIMP, and various other programs I use tend to struggle too, and have started crashing more frequently. (Granted, I'm usually doing a lot of things at once so some of that is to be expected, but it's definitely worse than it should be.)
- Normally I have icons for volume and Internet connection status at the right end of the toolbar next to the clock, but as of recently the icons are only showing up about half the time (this doesn't bother me, but it seems relevant).
- Today I attempted to download anti-virus software, but for several programs (Avira and Malwarebytes, among others) I couldn't get their websites to load. I downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials, but when I double-click the mseinstall.exe file I immediately get a crash report saying "MSEInstall Package has stopped working".
I attached the GMER log, but I haven't been able to create a DDS log. When I run DDS.scr, the window with the black background opens and displays this:
As per the instructions you would have received, kindly ensure any onboard script blocking tools have been disabled for they shall interfere with DDS.
DDS is a non-invasive diagnostic tool.
-DDS makes no registry writes/changes
-DDS does not create any permanent files/folders.
This scan should not take longer then three minutes to complete.
When the scan is complete, a logfile/report shall pop open.
Post the contents of the logfile to the forum where it was requested
Thanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And please let me know if I need to clear anything up or provide more information.
