Hi i recently had a problem uninstalling HD Tune Pro, it was coming up with a error that said unins000.dat is missing or something so i was looking for ways to get rid of it and i couldnt find any information so i found a tool that removes the program from a site i wont say incase of spam and HD Tune pro didnt remove at all but registry keys were removed i finally thought i should use revouninstaller because i heard about it on a forum and it completely removed HD Tune Pro but when i opened auto run i had a registry file missing and it was called delcontext menu, when i restarted it dissapeared im wondering if this is needed and if i should restore back to a earlier date.

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

Question - is your computer working OK at the moment, ie without this file ?  If it is - let sleeping dogs lie - just carry on using it and don't worry. If you are having problems of any sort, then doing a restore is probably the best way to go.

 

Remember - 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it !'

i have been getting a message at shut down to force shut down saying task host window is stopping background tasks but im thinking thats a different problem and maybe whats causing a slightly slow start up. When i start up expecially after hibernating the hard disk goes right up to 100% for a long time on task manager and the icons on the desktop flash like when theres been a pending restart but i have no pending restarts for uninstalled programs im thinking its because of the task host window is stopping background tasks so if anyone knows about this problem would be great to get some information.

 

Kind Regards

A message at shut down to force shut down saying task host window is stopping background tasks

 

This in itself is nothing to worry about. It's caused by some programs actually taking longer to fully shut down than you expect. Essentially it's a safety net to protect your data. If you have been working in some application and for some reason gone to turn off the computer before exiting the app it gives the chance to cancel the shut down and go and save your data before closing down again (and finally).

 

From what you say you might be as well doing a restore to before the time you uninstalled HD tune if you still have a restore point dating to before that. At the worst you will have to uninstall it again but that shouldn't be necessary.

 

I can't really help you with the hibernation problem, my primary computer has always been a desktop so I tend to treat laptops the same way - they are either off or on !  But if I am understanding you correctly there is no need to have task manager running on the desktop all the time.

RE: HD Tune Pro issue - try reinstalling it, then uninstall it.  It's likely that reinstalling it will restore the missing "unins000.dat" file.

 

RE: Hibernation issue - it is possible that the hibernation file somehow got corrupted.

 

Try turning hibernation off/disabling it , then deleting the hibernation file - c:\hiberfile.sys

thanks for your replies i did a restore because a few things went odd like i couldnt use the start button and i had a sound problem at one point it seems a lot better now but i will try reinstalling hd tune pro instead of using revouninstaller which did do the job but maybe easier reinstalling it, as for the hibernation i have disabled hibernation and the start up seems a lot quicker if i still have problems i will delete c:\hiberfile.sys

 

Kind Regards

i might do sfc /scannow to see if any system files are corrupted it may sort out the hibernation issue

To speed up your startups, right click the taskbar, hit start task manager, go to startup tab and disable everything you don't need running when you turn on your computer.
