The error itself is longer, but I occassionally get this message when shutting down.  Could my ram be going bad?


Also, I may be nitpicking here, but is it normal to see all my pinned taskbar icons flash when starting up?


Everything seems to be running fine, I just want to work out all of the kinks that have been bothering me.  The system is about 5 years old.  May slowly start replacing hardware.

I doubt it has anything to do with your RAM. You can always use Memtest86+ to check it. But I think it's more likely a program that isn't working properly. Difficult to say without knowing exactly what the error says and what is being logged.


SOP for me when working with software bugs is to run chkdsk /f, restorehealth, and sfc first and then go from there.

Press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key, in the menu that opens click or tap on Command Prompt (Admin).  This will open the Elevated Command prompt.
Copy and paste the commands below one at a time in the Command Prompt, then press Enter for each command.


DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
