Program Not Responding / Hangs Up

Mar 15, 2007

I have a three month old HP Pavilion a1624 , 250GB HD and 1GB memory, with WinXP Media Center Edition 2005, with ZAPro, NAV 2007 and use Firefox 2.0 (I get the same problem using Firefox and IE6). I connect to the internet through a wireless network to cable modem. When surfing internet sites things go good for a while then it hangs up. When I click a shortcut or type in a url it starts to go then stops. The active browser icon turns back to just a pointer and when I do the ALT-CTRL-DEL, the task manager indicates, in two separate lines entries, that the program is not responding. I select End Task and at that point I can't connect to any site. I reboot and everything goes normal for a while then, boom, the same thing happens. This happens about every hour or so of use. I have tried running an ethernet cable directly from my PC to the router, but still have the problem. Other PCs on the wireless network have no problem.

Search Companion Hangs Then 'program Is Not Responding' Me

Jun 28, 2005

I am running XP SP2 with all current updates installed. Sometime after Windows Update performed an update, I noticed that when I try to run Search (Start, Search), the search app freezes after I type in the file search criteria and click the "search" button". Attempting to close the application results in "this program not responding." and ultimately "You chose to end the nonreponsive program, Windows Explorer." Please Tell Microsoft about this problem. We have created an error report... [Send Error Report] [Don't Send] This is identical to a problem reported on 3/1/2005 but doesn't appear to have a resolution.

Mouse Hangs, Stops Responding

Jan 30, 2005

No one, even Compaq, can figure this problem out. Most times this happens when I am opening IEXPLORER or sometimes it just seems to happen after it's open. I will attempt to open IEXPLORER and my mouse will hang (stop responding) for about a second, then jump back into action. Say like opening up the web browser, and moving your mouse around in a circle, it stops even though you are still moving it. It also does this just when NOTHING is open on the desktop. Just stops for about a second, then springs back.

The only way out of it is ctrl+alt+del, task manager (program not responding) end task.

Right Click Hangs When Deleting / Renaming Files

Mar 27, 2007

As the title states, whenever I right click on a file, beit on the desktop or in a folder somewhere, it can take anywhere between 10 and 20 seconds before I can click on "Delete" or "Rename". When I try clicking on one of the two, my CD drive (or hard drive?) starts spinning and it won't let me click on my desired action until it's up to its "cruising speed" in RPM.

End Program - Hung Up And Not Responding

Dec 12, 2004

I need to use the "control-alt-delete" to end a program that is hung-up and not responding and I then get the dialog box asking me if I want to send a message to Microsoft telling them about the problem. First of all, is there really any reason to send this message, and if not, how can I prevent this dialog box from showing up again?

Get A Box That Pops Up And Says Program Not Responding

Dec 8, 2004

When shutting down my computer, I get a box that pops up and says program not responding C:documents/settings (that's the most I can see.. I can't see the whole path name). When I click on the end now, the error goes away and the computer shuts down properly. I looked in the task manager to see if anything was running and I didn't see anything and all programs look to be shut down before I tried to shut the computer down. I have Windows XP and I don't understand why something in C:documents/setting would be doing this.

Program Not Responding Apparently Frozen

Dec 16, 2005

I recently used CDBurnerXP Pro 3 to write an iso image on the HDD. The progress bar jumped to something like 27% and was apparently frozen.Thinking something was wrong, I tried to terminate the program by ctrl+alt+del and the window opened up with the status message "not responding". But the "end task" refused to terminate the CDBurnerXP...The HDD lamp was glowing. The final observation was that the iso image was successfully written.I have repeated the process and my observation on 2 different computers is the same - the progress window jumps to some %age completed and freezes, CDBurnerXP is writing the image to the HDD, but the status window shows the program "not responding".

Shutdown Problem /This Program Is Not Responding

Feb 5, 2005

Occasionally, I will go through the Shutdown procedure and, not wanting to wait the time it takes to be sure it actually shuts down, I will walk away only to find it still on hours later with a message on the screen "This Program is not Responding", with an available "End Now" button.Sometimes, it is more than just one program. I'll click on the End Now button and another will pop up within a fraction of a second or a few seconds with the same message.Is there a utility that will shut down Windows and/or give an end-now answer to these monolog boxes?The programs that are giving me these problems are too valuable to my work and too valuable to change--and in some cases cannot be replaced. All are designed for Windows 2000 or later and the problem happens on Windows 2000, Windows XP Home and Windows XP Pro on multiple desktop machines and my new Compaq laptop.

Recently I've noticed that when I shut down and reboot my desktop computer, there is a program that is not responding to the shutdown command and I have no idea what this program is, where it came from, whether it is spyware, virus, trojan, etc. I am running Windows XP Home edition and the name of the program is this: 7801a2f0-bfbd-40f4-9a8c-06b91134573d I have tried to Google it without any success. If anyone knows what this program is or where it came from, whether or not it is needed on my computer, etc., I would be interested to hear about it.

Crashes / Xvid Movie Hangs Computer After Quitting The Program

Jun 20, 2007

When I play a DVD or xvid movie my computer hangs after quitting the program. Totally freezes, reboot required. I tried re-installing the latest ati drivers, latest audio drivers (ac '97) and the latest motherboard drivers (msi with nforce). Sometimes there's no audio either in the movies I try to play It's the same with PowerDvd, VLC and Windows Media Player.

I wonder if it could be the IDE cable? As I recall the dvd station and the hard drive with the xvid files I tried to play are on the same harddrive, forgot to try and play files from my SATA drive, but from what I can recall it has worked fine previously.
However, If i try to unpack stuff/burn stuff from the same harddrive it works fine.

Actually the very same thing happens if I "select" a file and try to delete the file by pressing the "Delete" key. And the problem occurs when I try to delete a file using the menu (Edit --> Cut). This is really frustrating, to say the least.

PC Opens The Same Program Over And Over Again With Single Double Click

Jan 7, 2006

Every once in a while my pc acts really nutty. What happens is that I'll go to open a program (lets say Nero Burning Rom) and on a single double click Nero will open up 70+ times. Furthermore, it makes mostly all of my programs act up when this starts happening. For example, when I click the arrow in the system tray it expands and collapses tons of times before it stops. If I open Firefox my homepage sort of half loads over and over and won't stop. MSN Messenger opens up then freaks out when I put the pointer in its window (this happens in the above Firefox example too). All of this activity makes the pc unusable until it all stops. Speaking of when it stops, it does't stop with a restart, it just stops mid session. I thought it could be a mouse problem because the trackball I use is pretty ancient and I figured it just might have just petered out finally, but then I tried another mouse that I found laying around and it did the same things. One other thing I've noticed it (the trackball) doing is when it's not being used the pointer slowly crawls towards the top of the screen. I've run my anti-virus and all three of my spyware programs and none of them find anything out of the ordinary. So what could be causing this? I'm starting to think it might be my mouse port, but how would I find this out?

Right Click On C Drive Runs An Install Program

Nov 11, 2007

Recently cleaned up a friend's very infected machine. The jury is still out as to how much damage was done (specifically to the registry), but something weird is going on. When I right click the C drive in My Computer, the EZ CD Creator 5 install program starts executing. I didn't see a autorun.inf file or on the drive which is the only thing I can think of. Any ideas?

Figured I'd add some more info. I've installed a second drive to take backups to. Backup of 12G of data to the drive while the OS was up took 1.5 hours, took much less from an emergency disk, weird. XP SP2 256K memory. I'm also getting a windowformsparkingwindow popup on a shutdown. Reasonably sure this is due to HP stuff on the machine. Java is busted up but I wanted to start getting the backups going before uninstalling that and reinstalling.
