I took a look at my TaskMan because my Core 0 was at 100%, and I just exited a flash game.I had 4 IE windows open, and a total of 4 tabs. One iexplore.exe was using over 400,000K. I clicked on the Applications tab, right clicked on each App, and selected Go To Process. None took me to the iexplore.exe. NOW, I have 2 more tabs open [both 7forums] and the memory usage is over 873,000K..I am currently on my second attempt on uploading a Zip of the .DMP of that IE process, and it doesn't look good. Nope.I will try uploading it later, but until then, can somebody walk me through.
I usually have about half dozen IE windows opened at anytime. I might start a few more and then close a couples. But eventually I notice one or two if the IE processes start to use up several hundred MB ram up to eventually 1GB ram. When one of the IE processes hit the 1 GB ram mark, it's inevitable that one of the IE windows then stop functioning, as clicking the link you don't get any page loading. If I then shut down that process, then everything works again.
Once in a while, I notice that one of the IE process would reach high ram usage of hundred MB ram and the screen saver would stop coming on as well as the power setting for turning off screen would be disabled. This is even if there's no IE process running a video at that time. It's possible that I might have open IE to say view a video before but I know I close that IE process and yet this still happens. If I go and shut down all the IE processes that seem to take a lot of mem, then screen saver comes on again. I imagine that this also affects other browsers as well?
i have updates but when i update windows it comes back saying that some updates did not finish or it says there was an error. Could this problem cose visual studio not to install to because im trying to install 2012 and 2011 and just a back screen comes up saying Visual Studio and then its gone and nothing happens, is there something wrong with my windows 7.
I recently upgraded to an i7-2600k and z68 asrock mobo. (i had a 955be an msi mobo). Anyway i reinstalled windows (just an overwrite not clean install). Then i could not load yahoo.com, microsoft.com and a host of other websites. I am in a pc gaming clan and need to be able to access my yahoo email and some of the sites that i currently cannot access. So i tried a clean install on same hard drive and still same problem. So i tried a clean install on a second hard drive, still same problem. I have also tried a ethernet card (thinking maybe the onboard ethernet was defective). I have updated all drivers. I have not updated the bios cause it is only 1 update off. and that update says it has nothign to really add. I have win 7 64 bit os.
I also have an old vista computer on the same router that has no problems accessing these sites, i changed the computers to the other ethernet cables just to make sure and the vista one has no problems on the cable my gaming comp is on and my gaming comp still cant access on the other cable. so its not a cable issue.I have flushed my dns, reset the modem and a bunch of other stuff that i googled ( i can load that at least, but cant connect to any microsoft help pages). So i use my other comp to look up microsoft help pages and tried the stuff listed there.Also i cannot load adobe flash player - think this might be part of the prob. I go to adobe and click flash player, and the comp downloads it into my downloads. Then i open it and it starts downloading but stops at 12% and says connection timeout. every time. if i let google toolbar install with it that installs just fine, that connection doesnt time out. Im getting really frustrated and the only thing i can think of is to call my isp or microsoft and see what they say.
7-ultimate I want to know if it is possible to make Windows 7 NOT use the free unused RAM as whatever the storage it is using for, as seen in the other thread? Like I don't want it to occupy 1GB of RAM
Hey everyone, I am having an issue with my computer right now. When I boot it up, I get an error message reading " Applaunch.exe - Application Error" and then under it, it reads: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application. Okay, so I click OK. After I click it, and around 5-30 seconds it pops back up again.
how to convert a shared video memory into dedicated video memory and system video memory? me and my friend have the same specs computers but the same game runs slow in my computer but it runs smoothly in his computer?
i am having a problem with my memory getting tied up / used up and not being able to access it again until i reboot.
machine: dell xps studio 8100 os: win 7, processor: i7 2.8 ram: 16gb (max it will take) video: ati radeon 5700 (running 3 monitors)
versions: as far as i know i am running current versions of everything, including video drivers, flash, chrome, etc. (i've tried running chrome with both the build in version of flash and the system version -haven't seen a difference)
browser: i nearly exclusively run chrome / canary with auto-updates so am at the latest builds.what seems to cause me to use up / run out of memory is after i play videos (Internet, netflix, etc.), the memory seems to get used, but is not returned to the system, even if the browser is closed and re-opened.right now for example things are working fine; i rebooted my system a couple hours ago (but have not played any videos). i have adobe lightroom running, picasa, chrome and canary (currently 4 web browser windows open with 52 tabs open). task manager currently shows me using 8.20gb of ram, that seems pretty reasonable to me.
normally my system will keep running properly (if a program is closed, memory is freed up) right up until i start to play any videos (Internet, netflix, etc.) then it will start using up more memory. (of course i expect it to use more memory during playback) however, even if i restart the browser, the memory does not get freed back up. for example, just prior to the reboot, with everything closed, i was using right around 8gb of ram. once i rebooted, i was using 1.something gb of ram prior to opening any programs.however, once i start playing some videos, i never seem to be able to get my ram freed back up again unless i reboot the whole system. this is not just a problem with how much memory the system shows as being available, i frequently actually run out of memory. (task manager will show me as using around 15gb and then everything starts swapping out like crazy).
I find that if I run chkdsk and watch the memory usage in task manager it jumps by about 50MB every 2 seconds or so until it either finishes or hits around 3.2GB at which point my physical memory shows 99% used (I'm running 4GB), and the system of course slows to a crawl.f you just run a quick chkdsk on your boot drive you may not notice it, but try running something longer like chkdsk /r on a flash drive or chkdsk /f on a bigger internal drive (but not your OS drive as this would require a reboot) and watch the memory usage climb. I have duplicated this on both systems I have running Windows 7. My XP machine (checking the same USB flash drive) uses a much more normal amount of memory for chkdsk (20 - 30 MB).
Memory Usage Goes Up Gradually (Memory Leak)When I starting the Windows (in the first few hours) everything is normal But after 1 day or 2 (sooner or later) the amount of available memory gradually goes down and the physical memory usage increasing. This increasing, continues until the memory usage reaches near the 88% and at that point , there isn't any memory available to operate any software . Also when memory reaches that point, I can't access any drive in the HDD; because everytime I want to open any folder, the following error appears :c: is not accessible.Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service At this point, I even can't shutdown or restart Windows normally; I must restart windows manually by pressing the restart button.after restart, everything goes to normal again; but this problem appears again and again ...

0- using some optimizing and freeing softwares like (Memory Booster Gold - RAM Saver Pro - CleanMem)
1- Scanning my computer with antivirus and antispywares
2- Changing antivirus software
3- Updating windows with all updates available via Windows Update
4- Updating drivers of all hardwares
5- Downloading and installing the following hotfixes that are related to memory leak : The memory of the nonpaged pool may leak when you enable IPsec on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 A memory leak issue occurs in the Windows Management Instrumentation service on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 FIX: A memory leak may occur when you use the Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Library in Windows Vista, in Windows 7, in Windows Server 2008, or in Windows Server 2008 R2 A memory leak occurs when an ADO Recordset object calls the UpdateBatch method A nonpaged pool memory leak occurs when you use a WFP callout driver in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, or in Windows Server 2008 R2
I just built a new computer and started with 8GB of memory. A few weeks down the line I purchased another set of the same memory because it was on such a good deal and had great reviews (newegg). It also was working well for me, so I figured maybe more could be better.
I haven't noticed any decrease/increase in system performance except Alt-Tabbing has recently got slower. Also, Windows 7 was sitting tight on 1.3gb to 2gb of memory usage prior to the extra 8 (now 16) being added. Even when gaming, it went up to like 3gb. Now that I've added the extra it's going up to 4.5gb or better. Also, is it possible to speed up my alt-tabbing? It seems to have a good 3-4 second pause in it instead of being immediate like it was.

I need to take ownership of a file (relating to Avast anti-virus) in order to be able to remove it from Add/Remove in the Control Panel and also to remove its directory from Program Files on my C drive.I have to do this through the Cmd Prompt and act as administrator. I have right-clicked on the Cmd Prompt and get this (which is what I ought to see):
What I am not sure about is the path to the directory (or folder) that I want to delete: I don't know the syntax. And, can I delete the entire folder in one go, or do I need to remove it contents file by file?
Is there anything that would cause all registry changes not to have any effect? The changes are saved and still there when the computer is restarted..but the changes never appear. It isn't complicated or anything - just WallpaperOriginX.
when I boot up my computer it stays in a black screen for about 3 minutes then moves to the logo screen where it stays there for another 3-4 minutes then finally gets to my desktop.I have a hunch of what it has to do with but could be wrong.I ran diskeeper (defrager program) and it mentioned something about sound driversI just went along with it and just ran it (foolish now I know)Ever since it has finished and I went to turn on my laptop again this boot up lag hasoccurred.
I have just installed windows 7. The process was seamless, but the second I got to the desktop, a problem began. Intermittently, the screen will go black and windows logo desktop wallpaper will appear on the screen. After a few seconds the desktop reappears. The computer is fully functional when not freezed up with the wallpaper, so all drivers are up to date, and I have sp1.
There is 3 PCs and 2 macbook in my house First, when i moved to the new house there is only my friend laptop n my PC It got 1MBps speed and everything is good Then, we got another housemate using Mac and PC, obviously the internet is slowing The speed is down greatly even i have to wait a lil bit to access certain site now, recently i've got a parasite who also uses mac n now i cannot access everything, even i can't even Access GOOGLE (COME ON!!)The time that I can access smoothly is when the mac user is asleep N the one who troubled is not only me, but my friend who uses Win Laptop Even now i have to wait 15 minutes (by continuously hitting refresh) to create this thread so, is Mac got strong antenna or some special feature to hog internet?And is there anyway to see who uses internet in the shared network?
I plan on taking the graphics card out of the computer I have now and put into that bare bones kit and all the wires/cords and fans and what not. Is there anything else I need to take into consideration? Besides an OS.I plan to get myself a copy of Windows 7. But I'm not exactly sure what I need. I was thinking Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.But all I mainly do is surf the web, sites like you tube, face book etc. and game, Crysis, Crysis 2, Half-Life, other Valve games and Steam games.
I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my 30 gb SSD. When I was done, there was about 14-15 gb left on the drive. After installing drivers, I had about 12 gb left. Then I used Windows Update and installed all the important updates. After all the updates, I had only 4-5 gb left. Is this supposed to happen? Why is it taking up so much space? Is there any way I can free up space on there?
A little over a year ago i bought a acer computer with a quadcore in it and a 1tb westerndigital hdd.I eventually switched out the hdd to another computer with is the one i have now 100$ custom except my os . i have the serial key for my operating system. im hoping to be able to use that serial key to download my os onto a flash drive so i can have a fresh install of windows because i play alot of modded games like dayz and gmod and they fill my pc up with random files i don't need also i think a new fresh install would be nice for my computer. is this possible to do? I do not have the money to buy a whole new windows 7 disk.
I recently bought 2x1GB Ram Sticks for a Dell DimensionE510It has a Pentium4 2.80Gh Processorand factory 1 GB RAMIt's currently running Windows 7 x64hen I put the new RAM sticks in the system recognizes the new memory says it has 3.0 GB of ram and runs until I start actually using to new memory, as in start running more programs simultaneously and it crashes and I get two BSOD*. As far as I know the sticks match the motherboard, as in that's what I was told.*"Memory Management" and "PFN List Corrupt"As far as I understand it is a driver issue, but I honestly am not sure.
To start, I have Windows 7, on Sony Vaio laptop. I have been working on the issues with the malware removal team, but now machine looks clean, I am still having issues. When starting the computer and going to the task manager, I can watch explorer.exe start at about 18K memory usage and then grow constantly until it is running with almost all of the computer's physical memory after about seven min. I cannot get the context menu to show up after a few min by right clicking on anything. I had been experiencing "freezing" while playing Eden Eternal (an online role playing game) before that, which made me consider malware and seek help here at BleepingComputer. The freezing has ended, last time I played on that machine at least, but now there seems to be some issue with the explorer.exe taking all of the memory. I haven't been using the machine since I don't trust that there's not something running in the background that shouldn't be. In resource monitor there were "connections" that had "-" for both the name and the PID, but I don't know if that was the malware of if that's normal somehow? Issue with explorer.exe seems to be limited to only one user account, and not the other one. That is to say that if I log on one of the other accounts explorer.exe behaves normally, as far as memory usage.
my internet started running very slow about 3 weeks ago. It also takes approximately 2 minutes for my computer to shut down. I am running Windows 7, 64bit, with 6 gb of ram. I ran malwarebytes and it did not detect anything. I cleaned my hard drive with the disc cleaner. I ran microsoft essentials and it did not detect anything. I recently purchased Norton antivirus and ran a complete scan and it found nothing. Every time I shut down the computer it takes exactly the same amount of time to shut down.
I'm running Win 7 and have had no problems, but all of a sudden all my desktop applications show with an Excel 2007 icon; same in the task bar. All programs try to open with Excel. I right click and choose properties, change icon, but to no avail. I just downloaded a shareware program and noticed that it also inherited the Excel link.
My laptop was fine yesterday.All I did was take it home from college.I have Avast! anti virus, Lavasoft ad-aware and malwarebytes..so the chance of a virus infecting my system is low.Computer loads fine, gets to the login screen.I login.Computer sticks on the Loading screen.once it finally loads it just shows the taskbar and a black background.It does not seem to respond any more than that unless I press ctrl + alt + del which then allows me to use the computer as normal, however, as I say it takes about 20 - 30 minutes to get to there.my other account (the one I am using just now.) is not much better.It doesn't take 20 - 30 minutes ( about 1 - 2 minutes) and it loads fine without the black background problem.
I recently reinstalled my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, and had about 120 updates installed when I shut down my computer. The next time I started up my computer, a notification popped up requesting that I install two system updates. I did find it odd that those updates weren't a part of the 120 or so updates. While updating, my power went out and caused my computer to shut down. That's when the problems started, it took forever to start up, and not just to the startup screen. Before that, the fans would be running. There was no display and my mouse and keyboard were off. It'd go on for about 4 minutes. When things started to show up, everything seemed to be in "slow motion", or in other words, all actions made by me were delayed or lagging by at least a minute. I found out during the boot screen when I had choices to start windows normally or not. The computer also beeped once, which I understand is normal. From beep to the "Starting Windows" screen, it took 2 minutes and 20 seconds. And the "Starting Windows" screen plus the "Welcome" screen took 50 seconds to get to the Desktop screen.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit on an aurora r4, I have 2 drives, one for OS and the other purely for games, mainly FSX.My question is, beens I'm putting games on the second drive is it taking advantage of windws 7 64bit or not. As on the main drive you obviously have 2 program files, one for 32 bit and one for 64 bit.For example the latest hitman game saysMinimum requirementWindows 7Recommended system Windows 7 64bitSo if I buy hitman and put it on my games drive, will it still take advantage of 64bit
I am trying to copy a file to my windows system folder. I have already taken ownership of the folder and given myself full control. I even successfully copied a file to the folder a few days ago but now when I go to copy a file windows tells me I need permission from myname-PCmyname even though this is me user account??
my computer is currently taking up to 15 minutes to boot up and takes an age to shut down.
This first started on Sunday, when, picking up my Acer laptop, I accidentally held the power button, switching the machine off. Since then the problem has occurred, an although the laptop switches on and works, it just takes an absolute age to boot/switch off.
