Windows Randomly Closes All Programs?

May 30, 2012

Recently I have gotten a new issue. I will be doing something basic on the computer, such as opening a new tab, or closing starcraft 2, and then suddenly all programs running will close. It gives no warnings, and it has nothing to do with the specs of my computer. I have 8 gigs of ram, a 2 gig gtx 560 and a 3.2 ghz 8 core processor. One out of the 5 times it has happened, it said "facebook messenger has stopped working correctly" or something.

It seems that there's something closes them, but I don't know what. All was scanned, no trojans. I also used CC cleaner to verify errors, cleaned them all, and also nothing.

Windows And Programs Randomly Stop Responding

Sep 29, 2012

Quite frequently windows or a program will stop responding, locking up my computer. I was running a /verifyonly, and at 30% it stopped. A few minutes later the following error presented itself.

mcagent.exe - Application Error

The instruction at 0xe7bcdcd5 referred to memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be read.

I've had some issues with video drivers lately

PC Randomly Freezes And Buzzes When Running Programs

Aug 1, 2012

Throughout the past week my computer has been sporadically freezing and buzzing, forcing me to restart when it happens. At random intervals it will freeze and proceed to make a buzzing noise that emits from my speakers. It never crashes to blue screen, I ultimately have to force a restart.

I've made sure that everything is properly connected and that the computer is clean. I'm not really sure what the problem is.

Programs Randomly Hang Indefinitely Cannot Be Shut Down At All?

Apr 6, 2012

3-year-old ASUS laptop running Windows 7 64-bit. I recently went through a fresh install of Windows 7 due to a major driver corruption caused by a Windows Update. Since reinstalling, various programs seem to get stuck indefinitely and nothing I can do will close them. For clarity, I'll give an example of what usually happens:

1. Program locks up
2. I try to close it. Nothing happens.
3. I try to end the application in the Task Manager. Nothing happens.
4. I try to end the process and/or process tree in Task Manager. Nothing happens.
5. I try to shut down the computer. It hangs on the "Logging Off" screen indefinitely (let it sit overnight to test).
6. I end up manually powering down the computer.

When I restart, one of several things happens with no pattern I can find:
A. It starts up normally.
B. It starts up but very slowly (maybe 10 minutes to get fully booted).
C. It hangs indefinitely at the Windows "flag" loading screen.
D. I enter startup repair (usually after "C." happens) and either startup repair hangs indefinitely or (if it loads) it can find nothing wrong or can't fix the problem.

Offending programs have included Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic, Open Office, Windows Explorer, iTunes, and Firefox, to name a few.

I use Avast! as my primary protection and it can find no problems. I've also run MalwareBytes with no success. Since it's a fresh install of Windows 7 (just a couple weeks old) and I haven't really done much downloading or exotic surfing, I have to think there's a deep-seated problem going on here. Please help before I go insane!

32bit Programs Randomly, And Frequently Crashing On X64

Sep 10, 2012

So I recently purchased a new ASUS laptop, and everything has been fine except for windows 7. In particular, 32 bit programs will inexplicably crash at random times, and when they do, they often all crash at the same time. For example, Steam, windows media player, uTorrent, and Firefox all crashed at the exact same time a few days ago, and several other simultaneous crashes have happened since. IE8, which has to run in 32bit mode for college related applications, crashes frequently as well, and has nearly compromised my work on several occasions.

I've tried recreating it, but I can't. The only thing they have in common is that they are all 32 bit programs, even things widows photo gallery(which is 32bit) crash randomly.

Icons For Start Menu Programs Randomly Disappear

Aug 14, 2010

This is not a big problem but is quite annoying, sometimes randomly the icons for my start menu programs will disappear and the icon will change to the default one when there is no icon to be found. Just random programs do this and if I go to properties it still says the icon is the old one but shows up as default in the program list. If I just hit apply and ok it changes it back. Is there anyway to prevent this or know why this does happen?

May 26, 2011

I am having a big issue with my computer. I originally ran windows xp professional until i upgraded to adobe cs5 and needed to switch to windows that i have windows 7 my programs stop working constantly. if i'm working in photoshop on a large photo the screen will go blank and a bubble will pop-up saying "driver stopped working but has started working again" and a lot of times photoshop, illustrator, and FL Studio will stop working and need to be shut down and started again. i've noticed sometimes when the computer is on overnight i'll wake up and it will be off. when i turn on the computer it will say that it didn't shut down properly. i was in the process of doing batch photo edits and it shut down on me right in the middle so i've got to figure out the problem. since i use this computer for freelance graphic design and photography. here are my specs.

Windows Explorer Closes Whenever Display Turns Off?

Jun 20, 2012

Whenever my display turns off, all my windows in explorer closes even when I am moving files. I don't really know how this happened but it is very annoying. Also, my windows explorer crashes like 5 times a day. It says that windows explorer is not responding and I have to wait for it to refresh but there are also times when I can't open it anymore then I'll have to restart my computer.

I have already done a full virus scan and system file checker but there were no threats or errors found.

Windows Live Mail Closes Unexpectedly Repeatedly Without Error Message

May 24, 2012

Windows Live Mail closes unexpectedly repeatedly without error message and one account disappeared?

I have multiple accounts being used for years on Windows Live Mail - Version 2009 - Build 14.0.8117.0416 on XP Pro SP3

Recently, Windows Live Mail closes unexpectedly repeatedly without error message
Then as I kept trying to figure out I noticed one account disappeared? I think that happened later.

I have the ENTIRE WL MAIL Log file.

To track why this was happening I went offline mode and it would not crash. So, I figured it was something to do with the Sync. So I disabled the Auto Sync for every account I had and did manual syncs for one account at a time. Found the account that was causing this.

Its a hotmail account. I signed into Hotmail and all seems ok. I am posting the follow lines from the LOG, when I manually synched that account from WL Mail a few times.

I could try to trace back into the LOGS as to when this drama actually started originally, and post that and / or most of it. Let me know if someone can help dissect Windows Live Mail issues. Found its due to Sync of one account, Error Log info posted.

Code: * Log opened: 2012-05-23T11:18:14Z
Windows Live Mail 14.0.8117.0416*********************************************************************************

Games Randomly Minimize And Programs "unfocus"?

Dec 15, 2012

Everytime I'm using my computer or playing a game it does it. In games it minimizes the game after some minutes, and keeps doing it all the time, and I can't really play.. I don't know what to do, I've looked at soooo many websites. And right now when I'm writing after 30 sec or something like that it "unfocusses" like another program is opened and then I need to click in this writing box again, to write... It's freakin annoying, and I don't know what to do...

Display Down After Lid Closes

Jan 11, 2013

I updated all my drivers using DriverMax and then verified those uploads against Intel's updated driver support scan. Both agreed with each other on the updates and that all was well. It was some week later when I was working and closed the lid on my HP dv7 (Win 7 Home Premium) opened it again within 10 seconds and ever since the screen simply doesn't come back after closing the lid. I have set all power options to Max Performance, turned off Hibernation and Sleep with no change in outcome. Checked the updated BIOS (updated via OM Intel site) and no applicable (or at least identified) power settings found.

Jun 22, 2011

Win 7 on Dell Vostro 64 bit os sp1.Anti Virus: Norton Security Suite, Ie 9 is where the issue started if opened it would close instantly. the 64 bit version is / was fine. Opening with no add ons had no change. I uninstalled IE9 only to find the problem stayed, IE8 32 crashes and IE8 64 bit works fine. The no add on for IE8 has no change. Running either as "Runas Admin" no change. Also resetting IE had no change. Logging in as Administrator and running it had no change. Creating a new user and attempting to run it had no change. One other issue that might be related I can not uninstall Java 6 update 25, it states the MSI is missing and I cant find a copy any where to remove or re install and remove.

COM Surrogate Opens And Closes?

Oct 18, 2012

I have a different problem with COM Surrogate. I noticed something wasn't right when I got random freeze-ups playing audiosurf which is sensitive to CPU usage. I opened task manager and saw about every 15 seconds, there is a spike in the CPU usage. I checked the processes and saw dllhost.exe (COM Surrogate) is opening up and closing in just a few seconds, and repeats this about every 15 seconds which is eating my CPU. I do NOT get any error messages anywhere. I can view photos just fine. HOWEVER, I do see that any new photos' or videos' thumbnails are not updating. Any videos and photos I had before this problem have thumbnails, but not any new ones I create. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Programs Randomly "Not Responding"?

Jan 15, 2013

Programs randomly go "Not Responding" for anywhere from 2 seconds, to a minute. It mostly happens on games that I play including League of Legends, audio would stutter and/or be delayed at times, my mouse will still be move-able, but I can't click on anything in the game, everything just freezes. I can alt+tab during this to exit the game and do whatever I want, other programs will be fine in the meantime during this. I've had this problem for several months, looked on multiple sites for answers, couldn't find anything that helped. I system restored my PC twice, Scanned for virus's, used malwarebytes and norton security (just installed yesterday), can't seem to find a fix. I have no idea if it's a problem with windows 7 or if it's a hardware issue. I've read a bunch on it and everything says something different. Looking for someone to help me with my problem because nothing seems to work.

Explorer Page Suddenly Closes

Feb 15, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 with Windows 7 laptop. Recently, it has been "acting up". I will be online using internet explorer and be writing an email, looking at a web page, or on facebook, and the page just closes by itself. At first I thought I must be hitting something to make the screen close, but the problem continues. It's really a pain when you're searching for something, and you've followed several links, only to have the screen you want to look at close for no reason at all. What's up with that?

HDMI Connection Lost When 7MC Closes

May 11, 2011

My problem is that I my HTPC drops the HDMI connection when I exit media center.

When I am in 7MC I can play all my ripped DVDs, Blu-rays, and music. But when Media Center closes (or in window mode) the HDMI connection drops off. I can see the "No Signal" messeage in the Onkyo display as soon as 7MC closes, and it reconnects again when 7MC opens. I need the connection to say active so I can have sound with NetFlix (apparently it runs outside of media Center even though I launch it in 7MC).

why my HDMI connection is dependant on 7MC running?

ASROCK H67M-ITX/i3-2100T connected via HDMI to Onkyo TX-SR705 receiver
