Bsod - Usbhub.sys On Shutdown / Hibernate

A few days ago my computer with a recently installed windows 7 build 7100 start getting a bsod every single time i shut it down, restarted it or set it to hibernate. I've tried updating all ubs drivers in device manager but they were all up to date and didn't help. I tried restarting it with not a single usb device plugged in. I normally only have a usb mouse and sometimes a exhd or ipod plugged in, standard stuff. I tried doing my own research for the problem elsewhere but couldn't find any answer.

I also tried windows update and installed these three new optional updates but that failed to make any difference either. What other information do you need about my computer to diagnose the problem?

Problem: Delay On Boot Due To Drivers Files: Ndproxy.sys, Srv.sys, And Vga.sys

Recently installed a fresh copy of windows 7 x86 and x64 in separate instances to see if the problem of a two minute period between the "windows is starting" screen and the desktop. Neither had a visible impact. I looked around online and found how to create a boot log. The following are the drivers/services that could not be installed during my startup:

4 instances of ndproxy. Svs
1 instance of vga.sys (hadn't installed video card driver yet)
1 instance of srv.sys

After installing the necessary drivers and with no alert from the device manager, the boot time is still roughly 2 minutes. Right now i am at a loss on what to do. For reference my avg startup time in xp was around 10 seconds from the windows logo. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Long Boot Times

After getting to the log in screen, i type in my password and my system seems to hang for anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes. This started about 3 months ago and since then i have resigned myself to just sleeping my computer. That worked fine for a while, but not it's hanging for almost the same amount of time. The light on my hdd never goes out during these hangs.

I have tried the start up repair utility. I did not install anything new before this started happening either. I have not tried to reinstall windows because, in my opinion, this shouldn't be necessary. I tried (not sure if i did it successfully) to disable any and all external network connections (like my xbox 360 and other windows based computers) on the off chance that it was hanging trying to connect to their shared folders.

Installing Programs Takes Too Long

I have seen similar issues raised on this forum but none of the answers so far work for me. My system specs are : windows 7 64bit, 8gb ram, 2. 80ghz when i attempt to install various programs (games, audio editing, gadgets) the pc runs through the standard pop-ups, license acceptance etc in normal time right up until it attempts to actually install the program. Then it appears to stop. The pc doesn't crash, other applications keep working (freecell helps pass the time).

The install window isn't frozen (the loading 'pulse' keeps moving). Task manager shows the install program as 'running', cpu usage is 12% or thereabouts. Physical memory approx 17%. So it appears there is plenty of capacity to handle the task but no urgency. For all of the programs i have tried to install i have used normal, administrator, compatibility & safe boot install modes with no effect. Disabling virusguard and unnecessary applications / processes has no effect.

For minor applications after 8 to 10 hours the install may complete, i guess other applications might also complete too but i don't have a week to spare. Please, please don't suggest 'microsoft installer cleanup utility' - this bug occurs for several different programs and on 1st install even in safe mode. Nd please don't ask me to reinstall windows 7. You may as well suggest i buy a new pc (actually a mac is looking good right now).

Ie8 Script Running Long

The last few times i have tried to access my hotmail inbox with ie8 i have gotten the following dialog:

Windows internet explorer stop running this script? A script on this page is causing internet explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

-
Yes   no  
-

If i click no and wait, then 30 seconds later or so i get the dialog again. If i click yes then ie locks up completely. That is, it stops displaying this dialog and becomes unresponsive. I have to end it with task manager. I can't disable javascript because the passport site needs javascript to function and if i put *. Mail.live.com into my restricted sites (where javascript is disabled) then the login process fails. I have experienced this on more than one computer. This one is running xp and the other windows 7. Both are running ie8. Any ideas?

Programs Taking Long Time To Load

Windows 7 - when i right click on any icon, in desktop, programs, my computer, documents, it takes 5 minutes for the window to open. Also any program in system tools takes 5 minutes to load. Windows explorer must be corrupt. Before i do a complete wipe, i was hoping someone knew of an easier solution to my problem. This is what i am running.

Here is the problem i am having when right clicking. After running several complete disk scans, registry cleaner, disk defrags, error fixes, device mgr. You name it, i have ran it, even from the cmd, there are no system errors, except for one minor error pertaining to my monitor display.
I have searched through all my hardware, and checked for updates, it always comes back as latest version installed already.

What is happening is when i "right click" any icon on the dektop, pgms, my computer, recycle bin, etc. It takes windows explorer like 5 minutes to open the little options window. Here is the problem i am having when i left click. When i go to system tools, and try to run defrag, it takes the same amount of time or more to open. Left clicking on 95% of all pgms. Works fine with no hang ups.

My thought is, windows explorer has been infected somehow but gets by all my system checks. I really don't want to do a wipe, but if it will make this issue go away i have no choice. I must add, that after my complete system check and defrag, everything worked great, but after the next boot, i was right back where i started with the same problems mentioned above.

Usb Takes Long Time To Eject

I upgraded to windows 7 over thanksgiving with no problems. However, recently i discovered that when i clicked on the "safely eject" icon on the taskbar to eject my usb drive, it takes over 1 min for the menu to pop up. I restarted my computer in safe mode and tried ejecting my usb, which worked fine with no lag. I don't know what happened that suddenly made ejecting so slow now. I haven't installed any new software since i upgraded, and this is definitely a recent issue. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

Pc Is Taking Long Time (10 Minutes) To Shut Down

I am having trouble working out why my laptop sometimes takes up to 10 minutes to shut down. It is an acer 5920g with a core 2 duo (t7300) and 2gb ram. It is running windows 7 home premium to which i have upgraded from vista home premium (both 32 bit). It is on a small home network but the problem still happens on moving it to a different network. The delay seems to be longer if the laptop has been switched on for longer - i.e. If the laptop has only been on for a few minutes then it shuts down very quickly but if it has been on for a few hours then it can take 10 minutes to shut down. Event viewer does not seem to be much help as even creating a custome log of all information around the time of the delay it shows nothing - here are the messages either side (nothing appears between these times:

Information 02/02/2010 22:09:14 kernel-general 12 none
Information 02/02/2010 22:00:20 kernel-general 13 none

I have run full anti-malware scans and am fairly confident nothing nasty is lurking. I've seen mention on some forums of clearing virtual memory on shutdown causing delays but windows 7 home premium does not seem to have the gpedit.exe utility that is recommended to cure this. Also i have looked in the registry and found a key labeled "clearpagefileatshutdown" which i assume would be the one to set with gpedit but this is set to 0x00000000 (0) - i'm guessing this setting means that the page file should not be cleared at shutdown - is that correct?

I have tried setting the registry key for waittokillapptimeout to both 2000 and 20000 but this seems to make no significant difference. Does anyone have any ideas of what else i can look for to try and find out what is causing the delay? Just as a final thought - while the close down screen is sitting doing nothing for the 10 minutes i have noticed some slow disc and network traffic but i can't tell what this is doing. As i said earlier there seems to be nothing in event viewer's logs - at least that i can find. I'd be really grateful for any help with this as i'm stuck for what to try next.

Long Time To Load Win 7 On A Sata Drive

Win 7, 64 bit loading on a gigabyte ma785gm-us2h with 4 gig of memory. One pata pullout drive, 2 dvd burners, one pullout sata, (hot swappable) and one internal 160 gig sata drive. Have tried raid, with no array and i am currently trying ahci setup for the internal drive. Only happens on sata internal drive. First load took about 6-8 hrs. Second load was about 3 hrs when it should be about 1/2 hr. On first install, (a few months ago) took about 1/2 hr. To install my new version of win 7 and all programs loaded in a minimal amount of time and were not sluggish ro run.

The same programs are taking a long time to load. It seems to load to a pata drive o. K. When it takes a long time to load my programs are sluggish to run the first time i loaded it new out of the box with the same programs to load everything was fine. I was impressed and had i not lost 2 sata drives set up as a raid aray 1 it would still be running.

Vista tends to do the same thing and i wouldn't load it but there are some features. I like so it is loaded on the other computer. For the first time in a while vista was about 1/2 hr to load and hope it doesn't crash for a while as i do not want to load xp onto the sata drive in matts computer. Windows 7 is on maries computer. Both computers are named after my kids. Version 7 is impressive over vista 32 bit.

Hard Drive, Devices Window Takes Long Time To Open

When i open the "computer" window, to see the hard drive, devices, etc. It's taking five minutes for it to load. Why is it taking so long when the drives and devices should just pop up? Click on the start icon, move over to my computer, then wait forever for it to load.

It doesn't make sense why, this system is analyzing the content for so long when i just bought tis computer. I have a mac, and i know this is different. But my dell laptop, and my wife's old computer doesn't nearly take this long. If i right click over computer, open in new window appears, and it acts as it always has. Why the unnecessary difference between the two. It should be fixed.microsoft shouldn't let this go on for long.

Usb Drive Takes Long Time When Sorting Files In Directory

I have several external usb drives on my machine. Some of the folders on those drives contain several thousand files, the default is for them to be in name order. Fine. But i quite often want to rearrange them by date, everytime i do this i get the semi-transparent green progress bar at the top of the folder but it seems to take an age to complete.

On previous versions of windows clicking on the column you wanted files sorted by made the sort almost instant. Each time i go back to the folder i have to wait all over again. I thought i had added the folders to the library etc to make searching and sorting easier. Am i doing/not doing something stupid?

Repeated Shutdown Pc To Tv

1. I think my pc cannot find the tv.

2. The pc (win 7) shuts down quickly four times and recovers quickly four times, then goes to a blue screen (with a lot of text).

3. The blue screen last just a moment, if fact i cannot read the text.

4. Then the pc reboots and ask if "i want to reboot in regular (or safe) mode).

5. The steps above then repeat, except maybe one out of ten times it finds the tv and all is right with my pc to tv world. What to do?

Cannot Shutdown After Upgrade

I've upgraded my nec notebook (versa s9100) from vista business to window 7 ultimate. After upgrading, the notebook does not shut down completely. The power light indicates that the power is on and i have to hold the power button down to cut power. When it starts up again, it will say that the computer was not shut down properly.

I can hibernate the computer but when it starts up, i get the recovery page where i have the option to start in safe mode, etc. I select "start windows normally" and it works ok. I tried doing the clean boot as suggested by other forums but it did not resolve the problem.

I realized that i forgot to turn off my avast anti-virus when i did the upgrade. Would that have affected the upgrade?

Cpu Tries To Shutdown

Just switched to windows 7 and im starting to notice that my pc is starting to trying to shutdown . Its giving off the the noise it usually makes when it shutdowns like every hour but doesn't really shutdown . I have changed the power setting to never shutdown. It never did this when i was using windows xp so it somewhat seeming very strange. I looked up some info on the internet but that said it may be synchronization with my pc clock but that's not the case.

I have opened it to make sure everything was still running fine and of course they are but the continuous  shutdown noise is bothering me still. My board  is windows 7 compatible. Oh im am running windows 32 bit version if that helps. Any info on how to solve my problem would be greatly appreciated ty for your time drm my pc specs intel core i5 650 3. 20gh biostar th55b hdgskill  ddr3 1300 single channel 4gb ram evga 8400gs 512mb ddr2 graphic card

Abnormal Program Shutdown

When i close an email in outlook (2007), the whole outlook program closes; same with word docs. Not just ms office programs, this happens in other programs as well - eg copernic agent professional: close down a search and the whole program exits!Have run both virus and malware checks but nothing there. Only other possible clue is that the mouse pointer appears unduly sensitive (but can see nothing in control panel to reduce sensitivity). Am using single mouse click. Any assistance appreciated . . .

Shutdown Button Sometimes Deactivated

I have a problem with windows 7 professional 64 bit. Sometimes the shutdown button is deactivated, i can see the button but can't click on it. Only with ctrl+alt+del it's possible to shutdown, log off etc. The error appears randomly so sometimes it works, and i can shutdown, log off etc. With clicking the button. It isn't a user-right based error because i have the problem with admin rights and also with normal user rights. I don't have a policy running where the shutdown button is deactivated. I installed the os with help of the waik tools, sysprep and a unattend.xml file but i don't set anything like this in the unattend file. Does somebody have any idea what it could be?

Shutdown Errors & Support

This seems to be a recurring theme on all the win 7 forums, the machine won't shut down properly. Select shut down, screens goes to the "shutting down" view, but the circle icon freezes after a few seconds and the machine hangs.

When i reboot, windows does not report a failure, it just boots normally and works fine, but come shut down, problems again.

This is happening everytime i use the machine, though sometimes i get the odd bsod thrown in at shut down as well, just for good measure.

I have used the internal checking within win 7 to try to find the issue, but nothing works, i don't want to have to re-install win 7 ultimate, a couple of weeks after installing it, but that is looking like the only option and that is not guaranteed to fix the issue.

I have tried to contact microsoft through their online "help & support" forum, but they say my version of win 7 ultimate is not activated (yes it is), then when i enter my product code, it says because i am not registered, i have to pay £45 for 1 hour of support.

Me pay them to have them fix a problem with their software! I thought vista was bad, this is just vista 1. 5 with bugs, should l have stuck to vista.

Anybody got any ideas on what is causing this, as lots of people are seeing this issue, yet no support answers seem to give a resolution

System specs are

Win 7 ultimate
Quad core processer
6gb of ram
2 x 512mb nvidia graphic cards working in sli mode
2 x 1tb sata hdd
28" hd monitor

Win7 Random Shutdown

I am using win 7 ultimate 32 bit, upgraded over vista home premium 32 bit. My laptop is randomly shutting down, it never done it while i had vista installed. It is not going in to sleep mode or anything similar, as some have suggested, it completely shuts down with no warning but can be booted up straight away. The only time i can make it happen for sure is when i run the windows experience index, it gets near to the end and then shuts down. I used to be able to run the wei before so i don't know why it does it now.

Any ideas as this is really annoying me?

Update At Shutdown Hangs Up

Os: win 7 home premium 64 bit oem installed on zt 1. 5t desktop
Service pack level:  do not know. Machine is 2 weeks old and have seen 3-5 successful updates at shutdown time.

Few weeks ago bought a quad-core zt machine that came with win 7 home premium 64 bit os and a 1. 5t hd. Have been very happy with the unit, and have seen some 3 or 4 updates at shutdown with the usual banner "please do not power off or unplug your computer; installing update 1 of x. "  So, would happily head to bed and could hear the unit shut down in five minutes or so.

Not so last evening (fri, feb 26). Saw the update screen at 11 pm, and still there as of 10 am this morning. Yes, can see some sporadic hard disk activity, and the spinning cursor.

Any idea what may be happening, and more importantly how can i break out of the update, bring to a place where i can continue my work?

Btw, have two other win 7 systems that did not have the update last evening: a netbook running home premium 32bit, and a dell desktop running win 7 ultimate. All three are on a home win 7 network.

Instant Shutdown Using Flash Player

I upgraded to windows 7 professional 32-bit a couple months ago from windows xp on my gateway laptop. I don't know why my computer keeps shutting down everytime i play either a video or games mainly using adobe flash player. This always happens while doing any flash applets, surfing the web, and playing games on my computer. It will freeze up for about a second and then just shut off completely to immediate power off.

It won't even allow me to restart right after it shut downs. The computer will act like it's going to restart & then shut down again a few times. I have to wait about 10-15 minutes to be able to restart it. I have uninstalled & reinstalled flash player, restored the computer to a previous state, made sure that all my drivers are updated & even tried to the system recovery/troubleshoot in windows 7. This only started after i upgraded.

Install Update On Reboot, Not On Shutdown

I have a question that i thought microsoft would have thought about and implemented years ago. When there is updates for windows that needs to be installed, why do microsoft only have the option to install these on a shut down? If there is any updates you get 2 options.

1. Shut down the computer and install updates.

2. Install the updates and hope that the update doesn't require you to reboot.

What i want is this.

1. The option to install updates when i reboot my pc because then i can install the updates if i go away for a while and the computer are updated, rebooted and ready to be used again when i get back. Even if the update doesn't require a reboot this feature would appreciated. Murphys law apples here. If you don't have the time to reboot after installing updates a reboot is required. If you do have time a reboot isn't required. And even if a reboot isn't required there is no harm done if i choose to reboot and install updates.

2. The option not to install updates when i want to shut down my pc. Sometimes i might just want to shut down the computer without having to install the update because i'm in a hurry. I don't want to have to wait for the updates to install before i can take my computer with me.

Error - 0x0000003b Nvlddmkm.sys

When installing win 7 64 bit from dvd on a blank hard drive (i hit format before installing) it goes through installation and at the end i get a blue screen with errors 0x0000003b nvlddmkm.sys. I have a nvidia 280 gtx vid card, evga nforce 780i sli motherboard, 6 gigs of ram, quad core intel 3gz processor.

I had vista prior but had vista ultimate 64 bit and win 7 home premium won't upgrade so i had to do a clean install. It keeps failing with the blue screen and 0x0000003b nvlddmkm.sys errors over and over. Please don't make me re-install vista, how can i get this to work? I just got my win 7 dvd today.

Missing File Ndis.sys

On my windows xp professional ver 2002 service pack 3 the file " ndis.sys " is missing from the c:windowssystem32drivers folder. I have tried to copy the file from c:windowsservicepackfiles folder but this did not help, so i deleted the new file in safe mode. Is there any way to download the correct file from microsoft. I think an anti virus programme deleted the file on me. I think this missing file is causing all my network adapters to display the yellow triangle.

Suspected Virus In Disk.sys

My security software is reporting a virus corrupting disk.sys. Their solution: remove the file. I restored an older copy of the file (though it appears to be the same size, etc. ) To another location from a backup i had, and when i check it, it doesn't report any virus. But the existing copy, c:windowssystem32driversdisk.sys, does. So:1) is this file required for proper operation of windows 7?2) if so, how can i repair the apparent problem?Thanks. (Btw, i took ownership of the file but i can't open it to run a compare on it; it says i need permission from he owner, even though i *am* now the owner. Nor can i copy the file to another location. I don't get that. )
