In the past I could log on to the internet either by clicking on the E icon or the internet provider's Icon (AT&T). Now I can only logon to the internet by using the internet provider's icon....If I click on the E icon, the brower's page will not come up fully and when using Task Manager it gives me the message that Internet Explorer is not responding

Does anyone have any idea on how I can get Internet Explorer back to where it responds correctly when I click on the E icon also? I use it to direct me to different home page as well as other uses. I have scanned my computer with Trend Micro Pro and also the Microsoft Malicious software tool, but neither of them show any problems...thanks, John

Please could someone advise me what to do when as above internet explorer stops rponding when you start it from a JavaScript hyperlink. I have looked in microsoft site but does not give me a link to download from only a support phone number. My operating
system is XP Home

A friend's system has something wrong with Internet Explorer. She clicks on IE and it opens fine to the correct page. But when she types in a different address or clicks on a link, nothing happens. When I open Task Manager, it shows that IE is not responding. I ran CHKDSK to see if that would help. No luck. Where do I start?

As I have posted the title this is one of the problems I have, if I leave the computer for any length of time I come back to find the page not responding so I hit the refresh button and nothing happens, it looks like its going to work in the window, but that's it, I have to shut down the window and open up another one.

In also getting this problem a lot as well.

Internet Explorer has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available

Its only when im online, im using a brand new computer and have only installed programs that I use, so at the moment im at a loss as to what is going on, would appreciate any help someone can give me to sort these problems out......................

I know that there are tons of sites about the problem with spoolsv.exe errors, but none of the people out there seemed to have the same situation as me...

For some time now, I've been encountering some strange behavior of my system.I use the standard Win7 wi-fi connection manager. When I launch the system, the wi-fi card gets connected to the router and I can browse the Internet. However, the icon of the manager shows the signal strength bars with a blue circle (the circle that indicates loading sth everywhere else in Windows) which usually tells me that it is still connecting to the network. The circle doesn't spin, it's just stuck. Clicking on the icon doesn't bring up the available network list, so it just doesn't respond.

Also, the system cannot play sounds. Well, it surely cannot play sound from the Internet, like Grooveshark or Youtube. Music on Grooveshark doesn't even start, Youtube videos go silent. Actually I haven't tested if it cannot play sth e.g. from iTunes, but one time when I wanted to restart the computer short after startup, it showed that explorer is not responding, with the task "playing the log out tune" currently being performed, so maybe the same thing with "offline" sounds...

Then, after some time (usually it's 10-20 minutes after the I turn on the computer) a notification window is shown telling me that a program needs my action and when I accept it, the message appears about C:WindowsSystem32spoolsv.exe experiencing a runtime error and requesting the Runtime to terminate it, or sth like this - so just the standard spoolsv.exe error message. And then... voila! The wi-fi icon shows just plain signal strtength bars and responds to my actions, and I can play sounds.

The information that I use a Lexmark X4975 wi-fi printer might be of some significance. I don't remember now exactly (and don't have any way to check it) but I'm nearly sure that the situation with the printer is quite similar - before the error I can't use it, and after - I can.

What might be the cause of all this and how to fix it? I just don't want to waste 20 min every time I turn the computer on...

EDIT !!!: Just now, I had another case of the problem, probably the largest in scale: as I turned my computer on, I couldn't run certain programs (iTunes, WMP, but also Windows Desktop Gadgets, Windows Anytime Upgrade and some other services from the Control Panel). However, I was able to listen to music over the Internet...Then after - again - sth like 20 minutes of work, the error popped up, and all the apps I launched before and that didn't actually open, appeared all at once!It certainly has sth to do with the spoolsv error, but there might be some other problems involved...This is no good, people.

Fixes a problem in which Internet Explorer stops responding or crashes because the installed Google Toolbar add-on is not compatible with the installed Internet Explorer version.


I'm hoping someone from Redmond sees this message and will open a defect ticket. This needs to be addressed promptly.

Brand new HP 600q TouchSmart system running Windows 7 64-bit. Everything works normally until Windows Media Center is started, especially when it is started in maximized mode. Once it is started, Windows Explorer and the Start bar stop responding. The clock in the system tray stops updating even though the clock gadget functions normally. Any apps that were open before WMC was started will continue to function normally but hovering the mouse over the Start bar changes the cursor to the revolving circle (system busy). Closing WMC has no effect. The WMC icon remains in the Start bar. Clicking on anything in the Start bar causes a popup message about Windows Explorer not responding. It can be restarted normally and the WMC icon disappears from the Start bar.

In the Processes tab of Task Manager, the ehshell.exe process fires up when WMC is started and it unloads when WMC is closed. wmpnetwk.exe seems to remain on in the background, no matter what.

There are a number of articles, blog posts, and forum posts all over the internet so this problem is in no way small. Many people have offered different solutions. I have already deleted the shellex registry key from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.mpg. That had no effect. Another "solution" was to go to control panel > Folder options > View > and put a check mark in "Always show icon not thumbnails." This did seem to stop the problem but this is not an acceptable solution since WMC is designed to be a rich graphical user experience.

Any help getting this information to someone from Redmond who can open a ticket on it would be greatly appreciated.



I have an AMD 955 computer and its 11/2 years old and havebeen giving be nothing but problems. Internet Explorer does not respond alongwith a lot of other programs about half the time and I have to close it andre-open it. I get error messages all the time. I canít get sound on just oneprogram, my camera isnít recognize and a lot of other crap. I have an oldercomputer which is an Intel E6550 and everything works on it just fine but I donítuse it as much because itís my 2nd computer. I even sent back 2Webcams because they wouldnít work. Logitech gave my computer the blue screenof death 3 times and the top of the line Microsoft webcam had so much sound distortion. So Iíve have it with this computer. Is therea program that might help? Re-Install Windows 7? Or just gut it out and go toFryís and get a new FX-4100 with motherboard for $155 and just go from scratch?



No, this is not the exact same problem as the post from 7/01

Last night I 'upgraded' from W98 to W98 Second Ediction. I use MIcrosoft Outlook, so I dumped Outlook Express. When I tried to get my email I got the error message Internet mail not registered, please re-install and try again. I went to the MS Product Support Services and found the following instrcutions to deal with this problem.;EN-US;q242777
You are using Outlook as your mail client. When you attempt to send and receive mail, you receive the following error message:

Internet Mail is not registered properly. Please reinstall and try again.
Additionally, details from the Account status may list error code, 0x80040154.

This error message may occur when either of the following are true:

The wrong version of Inetcomm.dll is installed.

Outlmime.dll, a critical file involved in the mail transfer process, is not registered correctly.

To Verify the Version of Inetcomm.dll
Operating System Version
Microsoft Windows 95 4.72.2106.4
Microsoft Windows 98 4.72.3155.0
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 4.72.3155.0
Microsoft Windows 2000 5.0.2919.6700
If you have any other version, rename it, and reinstall Internet Explorer 4.01.
NOTE : If you installed Internet Explorer 5.0, the specific version of Inetcomm.dll for Internet Explorer 5.0, is 5.00.2314.1300. If the version is earlier than this, rename Inetcomm.dll and install Internet Explorer 5. For more information on where to obtain Internet Explorer 5.0 see the References section of this article.
I'm using Internet Explore 6.0. Since ther eis no version of Inetcomm.dll listed for 6.0 I checked and I have the version listed for 5.0>> 5.00.2314.1300.

So, then I did the following:
To Register Outlmime.dll
Choose one of the following methods to register Outlmime.dll.
On the Windows Setup tab, clear the Microsoft Outlook Express check box, and then click OK .
After Outlook Express is uninstalled, repeat steps 1 through 3 to reinstall it.
I reinstalled Outlook Express.
After reinstalling OUtlook Express I still cannot get or send email from OUtlook or OUtlook Express. Now, the pop3 and smtp servers aren't recognized. I spent hours on the phone today with Earthlink. We tried everything they knew to get my INcoming and Outgoing servers recognized. No luck.

So then I did the following:

Method 2: Windows 95/98
These steps assume that you installed Outlook in the Microsoft Office default installation path.

To resolve this error message, follow these steps:
Quit Outlook and any other programs that are currently running.

On the Start menu, point to Programs , and then click MS-DOS Prompt .

In the MS-DOS Prompt window, type (including quotation marks)
cd "program filesmicrosoft officeoffice"
and then press ENTER.

In the MS-DOS Prompt window, type
c:windowssystemregsvr32 outlmime.dll
and then press ENTER.
I get this far but the system never responds with DllRegisterServer in outlmime.dll succeeded.
You receive the following message:
DllRegisterServer in outlmime.dll succeeded.
Click OK and then close the MS-DOS prompt window.

I'm hoping you can help me out here.


Running XP home SP3, fully patched. Office 2002 Pro. F-Secure Internet Security 2010, also checked with SpyBot and Symantec online scan - all clean.

Problems started with PC running slow with constant disk activity. Often got 'not responding' messages although after waiting several minutes the application would sometimes start. This is intermittent - sometimes everything works at normal speed.

Now I have a problem with some icons not working. These are linked to Excel - so icons on desktop or quick launch toolbar that should open spreadsheets just open Excel. Tried creating new shortcuts on the desktop but they do not work - give file not found, yet by opening the icon's properties and clicking on 'find target' it then finds the target! (But does not open it). Icons linked to Word, Access etc work normally.

Clicking on an Excel filename in Explorer opens Excel, but not the file nor even a blank newworksheet - but using file/open from that point enables me to open any Excel worksheet.

Where do I start?

When my wife runs her Internet Browser (IE7) it has started to not shut down properly. The home page will go away, but the outline of the browser remains and it will not shut down. Right-clicking on the icon at the bottom of the display and then clicking on returns a message that says this program is not responding and it can be ended by clicking on the button. I thought maybe there were too many Temporary files on her machine, so I deleted those and this did not resolve the problem. I checked the Microsoft web site and she has, what appears to be, the latest version of Explorer. So now the question is - what next? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall IE7, or is there something else I should be doing first. Any insight, thoughts that anyone would care to share is greatly appreciated.

I click a Favorate what has worked for a year and IE 8 opens and hangs up (says not responding) . If I wait about 5 minutes it may open up; but more often then not it will open up to a completely different web site.
I sometimes can get it to work by opening Task manager and end the task. (clicking on the IE will do nothing; but make it more stubborn and often covering over with a light haze (like looking through a frosted window). I then opened up a new IE8 and it may or may not work correctly.
on recient example: I did notice the URL often did not enter in correctly. I had clicked the Icon that said and what went into the Address was
LATER:I manually entered the URL into the address and I got the site. I suspect Google was changing the address and not doing a good job of it. I turned off google and coppied the favorate and replaced it in my favorites.
Funny thing is that the correct address was in a small window below the URL or address space; but did not work.
I am hoping this will solve the problem; but why did it change by it self. I have not tried it on other icons yet.

Yes I have windows 7 and I use the 32 bit IE-8 but have both. This just started messing with me for no reason that I can figure (but I am a long way less that expert like many of you are).
Maybe I should stop using Google for a while, but I hate Bing. I checked IE 9 but it is so foriegn to me I put it back in the Pond. If it could look more like the Classic IE I maybe could use it.

I think I have added all the updates, and I do not get comments of a virus from my McAfee Security.
I will need to keep look for this in the future. Thank you for anyone that has any usefull comments or ideas to check.

Sorry for disturbing.

Problem Description:

At first (2-3 month ago) IE9 became unresponding after updating it to Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2719177)... - solved it by going to system restore.
Later IE9 became more slower - dont know why - i use ESET smart security 5 fully updated (nod32 in short), also applyed uniblue power suite, speedypc pro, registry first aid 8.. tools - no help in this problem.
So i decided to uninstall and than reinstall IE 9 and turn off and than turn on IE 8 (it is pitty i can't uninstall and then back install ie 8 in windows 7...) - and than i saw, that IE 8 32 behave itself the same way as IE 9 with the update - no respond, crash, error...
I reinstalled IE9 - and IE9 32 became behave itself as with update... - i think they included that damn update in new IE 9 (cause i do not see that update in installed updates list and windows update do not offer me that update to install.. "windows update is up to date" - :-)
That it..., now i can use only IE (8, 9) 64 bit and other browthers..

No addons mode, full reset to defaults in ie options, starting in safe mode, diagnostic boot, temporal disabling Eset nod security, turning off firewall, deleting flash from adobe, deleting Java - nothing helped.

Also, when it as always freezed, it frezzes on moment, when it show in STATISTIC BAR something like this "Res://ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm#" - if i am not wrong, cause it stuck showing this only 1s. ...
So, i downloaded ieframe.dll from here , but did not apply it cause of this - Important Note: Do not, under any circumstances, download the ieframe.dll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are many reasons that downloading DLLs from these sites are never a good idea.

, but it always shows (freeze on) different points..

BTW, MFirefox also began behave itself strange - it show some pages wrong.

So..., that it. Could you help me? Plz
Cant reinstall windows - have no space free for that and have a lot of programs installed..and so on. Need to solve it without reinstalling windows. (Also, actually, never did it with windows 7 PREINSTALLED (have no CD, DVD with windows 7) on notebook.. many times did it succsefully with XP not preinstalled..)

As soon as i upgraded to 7 home premium from vista, i began having problems with internet explorer. i would be loading a page and it would stop responding. It is not random pages; it is certain pages every time. Yahoo mail is one of them and that's aggravating me. I can get onto yahoo mail but as soon as i open a mail, it stops working. I got so frustrated with IE, i downloaded firefox and nothing was solved. Downloaded google chrome, and still same problems. I was wondering if there was some common objects in the webpage's that IE didn't like, but with the other browsers not working as well, i figured it had to be something to do with Windows 7. If anybody knows what the problem is and knows the solution, please tell me.

Last year the Coding4Fun/Channel 9 guys asked me to work on a few things for MIX10. One of these items was a way to output a webcam stream to Windows Phone 7 for use with Clint's t-shirt cannon project you may have read about. I figured the easiest way to accomplish this was by using a network/IP camera capable of sending a Motion-JPEG stream, which can be easily decoded and displayed that can display a JPEG image. Thus, this library was born.

It has gone through quite a few changes and I have expanded it to easily display MJPEG streams on a variety of platforms. The developer just references the assembly appropriate to their platform, adds a few lines of code, and away it goes.


For those that are just interested in the usage, it's as simple as this:

Reference one of the following assemblies appropriate for your project:
MjpegProcessorSL.dll - Silverlight (Out of Browser Only!)MjpegProcessorWP7.dll - Windows Phone 7 (XNA or Silverlight, performance maxes out around 320x240 @ 15fps, so set your camera settings accordingly)MjpegProcessorXna4.dll - XNA 4.0 (Windows)MjpegProcessor.dll - WinForms and WPFCreate a new MjpegDecoder object.Hook up the FrameReady event.In the event handler, take the Bitmap/BitmapImage and assign it to your image display control:In the case of XNA, use the GetMjpegFrame method in the Update method, which will return a Texture2D you can use in your Draw method.Call the ParseStream method with the Uri of the MJPEG "endpoint".That's it! The source code and binaries above both include projects demonstrating how to use the library on each of these platforms. As long as you set the appropriate reference, you can just copy and paste the code in the sample to get your project running (changing the Uri, of course).

public partial class MainWindow : Window{ MjpegDecoder _mjpeg; public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); _mjpeg = new MjpegDecoder(); _mjpeg.FrameReady += mjpeg_FrameReady; } private void Start_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) { _mjpeg.ParseStream(new Uri("")); } private void mjpeg_FrameReady(object sender, FrameReadyEventArgs e) { image.Source = e.BitmapImage; }}If that doesn't fit your needs, you can also access the Bitmap/BitmapImage properties directly from the MjpegDecoder object, or the CurrentFrame property, which will contain the raw JPEG data prior to being decoded.

A Word About Network/IP Cameras

I have tested this against several different cameras. Each device has its own quirks, but all of them seem to work with this library with one exception: several cameras will respond differently when an Internet Explorer user agent header is sent with the HTTP request. Instead of sending down an MJPEG stream, it will send a single JPEG image as Internet Explorer does not properly support MJPEG streams. Unfortunately, this causes the Silverlight processor to not work properly as the header cannot be changed from the Internet Explorer default. When this happens, only a single frame will be sent, and the decoding will fail. The only fix I have found is to use a different camera that doesn't work in this way.

What is MJPEG?

Pretty simply, it's a video format where each frame of video is sent as a separate, compressed JPEG image. A standard HTTP request is made to a specific URL, and a multipart response is sent. Parsing this multipart stream into separate images as they are sent results in a series of JPEG images. The viewer displays those JPEG images as quickly as they are sent and that creates the video. It's not a well documented format, nor is it perfectly standardized, but it does work. For more information, see the MJPEG article on Wikipedia.

How Do I Find the MJPEG URL of My Camera?

Excellent question. Not an excellent answer. The user manual may mention the URL. A quick internet search with the model number should get you a result. Or, you can also try this company's lookup tool.

How Does It Work?

Glad you asked. If you take a look at the project, you'll notice there isn't much code. One single file is used with a variety of compiler directives to compile certain portions based on the platform assembly being generated. The MjpegDecoder.cs/.vb contains the entire implementation.

First, an asynchronous request is made to the provided MJPEG URL inside the ParseStream method. If we are in a Silverlight environment, the AllowReadStreamBuffering property must be set to false so the response returns immediately instead of being buffered. Additionally, we need to register the http:// prefix to use the client http stack vs. the browser stack. Finally, the request is made using the BeginGetResponse method, specifying the OnGetResponse method as the callback. This will be called as soon as data is sent from the camera in response to our request.

public void ParseStream(Uri uri){#if SILVERLIGHT HttpWebRequest.RegisterPrefix("http://", WebRequestCreator.ClientHttp);#endif HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(uri);#if SILVERLIGHT // start the stream immediately request.AllowReadStreamBuffering = false;#endif // asynchronously get a response request.BeginGetResponse(OnGetResponse, request);}OnGetResponse grabs the response headers and uses the Content-Type header to determine the boundary marker that will be sent between JPEG frames.

private void OnGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult){ HttpWebResponse resp; byte[] buff; byte[] imageBuffer = new byte[1024 * 1024]; Stream s; // get the response HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)asyncResult.AsyncState; resp = (HttpWebResponse)req.EndGetResponse(asyncResult); // find our magic boundary value string contentType = resp.Headers["Content-Type"]; if(!string.IsNullOrEmpty(contentType) && !contentType.Contains("=")) throw new Exception("Invalid content-type header. The camera is likely not returning a proper MJPEG stream."); string boundary = resp.Headers["Content-Type"].Split('=')[1]; byte[] boundaryBytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(boundary.StartsWith("--") ? boundary : "--" + boundary);...

It then streams the response data, looks for a JPEG header marker, then reads until it finds the boundary marker, copies the data into a buffer, decodes it, passes it on to whoever wants it via an event, and then starts over.

... s = resp.GetResponseStream(); BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(s); _streamActive = true; buff = br.ReadBytes(ChunkSize); while (_streamActive) { int size; // find the JPEG header int imageStart = buff.Find(JpegHeader); if(imageStart != -1) { // copy the start of the JPEG image to the imageBuffer size = buff.Length - imageStart; Array.Copy(buff, imageStart, imageBuffer, 0, size); while(true) { buff = br.ReadBytes(ChunkSize); // find the boundary text int imageEnd = buff.Find(boundaryBytes); if(imageEnd != -1) { // copy the remainder of the JPEG to the imageBuffer Array.Copy(buff, 0, imageBuffer, size, imageEnd); size += imageEnd; // create a single JPEG frame CurrentFrame = new byte[size]; Array.Copy(imageBuffer, 0, CurrentFrame, 0, size);#if !XNA ProcessFrame(CurrentFrame);#endif // copy the leftover data to the start Array.Copy(buff, imageEnd, buff, 0, buff.Length - imageEnd); // fill the remainder of the buffer with new data and start over byte[] temp = br.ReadBytes(imageEnd); Array.Copy(temp, 0, buff, buff.Length - imageEnd, temp.Length); break; } // copy all of the data to the imageBuffer Array.Copy(buff, 0, imageBuffer, size, buff.Length); size += buff.Length; } } } resp.Close();}The ProcessFrame method seen above takes the raw byte buffer, which contains an undecoded JPEG image, and decodes it based on the environment. However this isn't called in the case of XNA which we'll see in a moment:

private void ProcessFrame(byte[] frameBuffer){#if SILVERLIGHT // need to get this back on the UI thread Deployment.Current.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke((Action)(() => { // resets the BitmapImage to the new frame BitmapImage.SetSource(new MemoryStream(frameBuffer, 0, frameBuffer.Length)); // tell whoever's listening that we have a frame to draw if(FrameReady != null) FrameReady(this, new FrameReadyEventArgs { FrameBuffer = CurrentFrame, BitmapImage = BitmapImage }); }));#endif#if !SILVERLIGHT && !XNA // I assume if there's an Application.Current then we're in WPF, not WinForms if(Application.Current != null) { // get it on the UI thread Application.Current.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke((Action)(() => { // create a new BitmapImage from the JPEG bytes BitmapImage = new BitmapImage(); BitmapImage.BeginInit(); BitmapImage.StreamSource = new MemoryStream(frameBuffer); BitmapImage.EndInit(); // tell whoever's listening that we have a frame to draw if(FrameReady != null) FrameReady(this, new FrameReadyEventArgs { FrameBuffer = CurrentFrame, Bitmap = Bitmap, BitmapImage = BitmapImage }); })); } else { // create a simple GDI+ happy Bitmap Bitmap = new Bitmap(new MemoryStream(frameBuffer)); // tell whoever's listening that we have a frame to draw if(FrameReady != null) FrameReady(this, new FrameReadyEventArgs { FrameBuffer = CurrentFrame, Bitmap = Bitmap, BitmapImage = BitmapImage }); }#endif}
In the case of Silverlight, the BitmapImage object has a SetSource method which takes a stream to be decoded and turned into the image. In WPF, BitmapImage works differently. In this case, BeginInit is called, then the StreamSource property is set to the stream of bytes, and finally EndInit is called. In WinForms, the library will return a Bitmap object which can be initialized with the stream right in the constructor.

In the code above, I look at the Application.Current property to determine if the library is being used by a WPF project. If that property is not null, it is assumed the library is being called from a WPF project.

When compiled as an XNA library, we have no use for a BitmapImage or a Bitmap…we need a Texture2D object. The GetMjpegFrame method seen below is what is called by an XNA application during the Update method to pull the current frame:

public Texture2D GetMjpegFrame(GraphicsDevice graphicsDevice){ // create a Texture2D from the current byte buffer if(CurrentFrame != null) return Texture2D.FromStream(graphicsDevice, new MemoryStream(CurrentFrame, 0, CurrentFrame.Length)); return null;}Conclusion

And that's about it for the library. Give it a try and please contact me with feedback or if you run into any issues. Enjoy!


I'm at my wits end. Any help is appreciated.

Using the SF diagnostic tool, the only button that didn't pull any info was the minidump. I've changed the setting so it doesn't restart, and to a small size as well. Even after a restart, no info is pulled from the minidump button.

Screenshots of cpu-z is also in the zip folder. The ram mon .html file is in as well.

So this is my third time reinstalling windows, hoping maybe it was a bad install. I've had the same problems in the 3 instance of the install. I tried ruling out the hard drive, thinking the used hard drive was bad with a new one, but still had the same results. I also replaced the 6950 video card with a gts 240, hoping I'd just have to rma the video card. That didn't help either. So I've had bsod's for the nvidia card and also the amd card.

The settings I've changed on this fresh install is to the Power Options. I set it to High-performance. I have downloaded the following and am ready to run tests: speedfan, cpu-z, gpu-z avg, furmark, hdtune, memtest, and anything else that's needed

I'm still installing updates from Windows Update, but I doubt that would have an impact on my problem, since the first install was fully updated and still had the same issues.

The issue happens when browsing websites, and playing games, and everything else in between. I'm burned out and am going to take a nap and come back to this. Thanks again for taking the time Attached Files Seven (706.5 KB, 27 views) Share Share this post on Digg Technorati Twitter

If I've read that right you have now set up to create minidumps if/when the pc bsod's. Until you crash again you won't have any minidump files. It doesn't create them retrospectively. So now you're playing a waiting game.

AVG is known to be a cause of BSOD's on many Windows 7 systems. Suggest that you uninstall it. Download the correct AVG Remover for your system (32 or 64 bit).
If you have AVG ID protection installed, download the AVGID Protection Remover from the above link as well (it wouldn't hurt to download and run it anyway). Download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as AVG's replacement.
Uninstall AVG through the Control Panel. Re-boot to Safe Mode and run the AVG Removal tool(s). Re-boot to normal mode and install MSE. Make sure your Windows firewall is enabled!

Make sure your system is fully updated including SP1.

That should get you started, As soon as you get another bsod attach the dmp file and we'll move on from there.
The .dmp files are located at C:WindowsMinidump. Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.

Go to your C:WindowsMinidump folder. Copy the .dmp files to a new folder on your desktop. Zip up that folder and attach to a post.

Eve has started having issues

This never happened pre-7. Its not everytime ( hell I can write this mail !) but it is daily and it is regular. It got slightly better for a time with the recent update ( 21/9 ) but it has got more frequent ( 2days!).

The oddest thing about it is this never happened when I got the beta ( mid-august) it ran like a dream really happy with it. Now its like its buggy as hell. There has been no change to my computer, I tried a fresh install but it was back very quick.

Any help appreciated !


Hey, i'm new here... so Hi all! and here goes...

I've been running windows 7 (beta) for a few weeks now, and ever since it's been installed, the system will experience random Lags... it's not really a crash, or a full on freeze...

an example of what happens...

I could be on msn.. and i would open internet explorer... and my eggtimer will show... (internet explorer will not run) then i'll click my msn back.. and it will go white.. and that will show as an eggtimer (sometimes it shows not responding.. othertimes it doesn't)

I can click my start menu once... after i've clicked it once.. it will freeze in place...

But i have full control of my mouse... my time in the corner still changes time, so it's not a full system freeze, it's just a really really big lag... lasting for 2 - 10 minutes at a time.

clicking control alt delete doesn't activate instantly.. this also takes 2 minutes (normally frees up when the rest of the system frees up)

Secondry problem i have is...

Somethings take a lot of time to process... moving files sometimes takes ages, installing programs seems to take forever...
It just seems like the system isn't capable of running the operating system doing simple tasks... but it's more than sufficient.

i'm running a Core2Duo E6700 running at 2.6ghz, an 8800GTX Graphics card, 3gb of ddr2 800mhz ram. with a Raptor harddrive.... even windows perfromance gives me a rating of 6.0.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

I've tried...
Updating every drivers on my system to the latest version. This has made no difference.
Currently in the middle of making a bootable disc for memtest so i can check out my memory. But this is has took 1 hour 30 to format a 7gb disk as a bootable USB stick. and it's only at 50% (example of the secondry problem i have)

Thanks for any help


I hope this has not been asked before, I have been searching the internet for the past few days for answers to this problem and haven't found anything yet. Randomly in the past few days Windows 7 explorer/my documents folder/anywhere in my computer locks up and stops responding when I try to use my keyboard. No matter what I try to do, renaming documents, using ctrl-c, pressing shift, using any key on the keyboard, it locks up. I have tried running windows updates, running virus scanning, spyware scanning....nothing will work. Is anyone else having this problem and been able to solve it?
