Hi Gang

 

  Well that is what I get all the time. I have changed my Video card and I get the same results.  I usually keep my computer running all the updates and keep it clean and have several virus programs to help. I am using Win 8.1 and my video card is a Nvidia GeForce 8800.

 

  I will appreciate all the help on this.

 

  Thanx....Gunny

Hi Gunny :)

I can give it a try if you want.

  • Download MiniToolBox and move it to your Desktop;
  • Execute it by double-clicking on it;
  • Check the "List Installed Programs" checkbox;

  • Click on the Go button;
  • Once the scan is complete, a log will open.

Hi Aura

 

  I appreciate the help here, glad to see someone is at least trying to help.  I tried to download that program minitoolbox and I keep getting this error "windows cannot access the specified device bla bla bla".     It won't let m do as an administrator either.

 

   Thanx.....Gunny

What Antivirus, Antimalware and Firewall software do you have installed on your system? From which web browser did you download MiniToolBox and where did you save it?

Not to snipe the thread and you should certainly answer Aura's  questions.  When you installed a new graphics card did you uninstall the current one?  This step causes many headaches of black screen on startups and general strange artifacting issues.

 

Maybe you should try and use DDU and cleanup the drivers.  (make sure you dont install any other programs it may come bundled with)  I havn't used this one but I used to use it when it was called something else.  Plus I havn't updated my video card for awhile now so I don't have any tips on its use but I know it served me well in the past.

 

Turn OFF your anti virus and malware systems while you install the latest Nvidia drivers.  (just download them from Nvidia)

 

That would be my suggestion.

Hi Gang

 

  Sorry I have been so slow in getting to this info you gave me, too much going on I guess. Now I will start going through your info and see what happens.

 

  Much thanx......Gunny

Hi Aura

 

  Sorry.... I have the normal firewall that comes with Win 8.1. And I also have Malwarebytes, super anti spyware, and Ccleaner.  I use Google browser, and I was going to put it on my desktop.

 

  Thanx....Gunny

Can you disable Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware real-time protection (if they are enabled) and try to download MiniToolBox again? If it doesn't work, try to download it in Internet Explorer.

Can you create a new user account, then log into it and see if you can download MiniToolBox and run it normally? You can create a local account:

Either your current user profile is corrupted, or there's a malware present on your system preventing you from downloading and executing applications.
