Forced Shutdown - Anti Virus Issues


I have a new laptop with win7-hp. This was my stupidity, but since i had 1 license remaining, i tried to install bit defender 2009 on the machine. (Learned later that there is no compatibility with 2009). The machine slowed to a crawl, and then i had to force shutdowns (maybe three times) before i got smart and used msconfig to disable bd at start which allow me to uninstall bd.

The machine runs fine now, but i get trend micro notifications saying because of the forced shut downs, the trend updates are not taking. Would appreciate any help. Does windows have any built-in diagnostic capabilities other than defrag (which i ran) to help with this?

Win 7 Upgrade Problem With Kaspersky Anti Virus

When i try to upgrade to windows 7 i get a message saying to delete kaspersky anti virus using the control panel. I do not have kaspersky on my computer. I run avast and shield deluxe which i disabled prior to doing the upgrade. A search could not find anything associated with kaspersky. Is there a back door route to bypass this or am i stuck doing a clean install which i really do not want to do. I have norton ghost, is this a kaspersky product?

Full Screen Anti Alias

Hey, today i have a question about disabling the full screen anti-alias. I installed windows 7 over my windows vista os back in october when windows 7 was first released in stores. I had a few games installed on my pc prior to me upgrading to windows 7 but since i've tried installing any game on my pc now that it runs on windows 7, the game either won't play or it advises me to disable the full screen anti-alias to play the games i install. The thing is, i don't know where to go to disable
The full screen anti-alias. Hopefully that is in fact the resolution in resolving this issue. Otherwise i will not be able to play the games i enjoy on my pc. Do help me out with this issue please.

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.

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?

After An Accidental Shutdown The 32-bit Program Flickers

Dreamweaver 8 worked fine for the first few days on my windows 7 computer. Oddly the companion program, fireworks, is just fine. I accidentally hit the power strip and turned the computer off. Since then it it won't open. When i try to open it, it flickers on, then disappears. Same thing happens when i try to get the 8. 02 patch from macromedia.

Yes, it's an older version, but i am reluctant to buy cs4 since it's not quite compatible and they're coming out with cs5 sometime this year. Does the flickering signal something worse with my computer? Any way to get this 32-bit program running again?

Blue Screen Memory Dump During Shutdown

So i am setting up windows 7 enterprise 32-bit in a computer lab, and most of the time when i perform a shutdown or restart i get a blue screen memory dump. I think it has something to do with an apple software product as the problem started showing up after i installed itunes and quicktime. I tried uninstalling all of the apple software and deleted all i could find in program files, but it has made no difference. I tried installing a hotfix that was said to fix this problem, but it didn't. (404160_intl_i386) my blue screen info is: stop:0x0000000a (0x8ac65bf0, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8286f1b9)

Shutdown Hangs / Internet Would Drop Out Randomly

Okay for a while i've had what appeared to be two separate problems with 7:

1) the internet would drop out randomly (it would show the little triangle sign over the bars in the corner). Clicking on the small icon shows the box as usual but any attempt to connect/disconnect, refresh has no effect. On a couple of occasions after clicking a few time is tells me that explorer.exe needs to be restarted (or words to that effect). In any case restarting it just replaces the little triangle with the spinning circle - which last for as long as the computer is left on. In both cases no connection to the internet is possible. I have troubleshooted numerous times to no success, checked all my passwords and thats fine and i can see no discernible pattern in these drop-outs.

2) the second problem i was having was shutdown hangs. It would process everything as normal and then hang where it says 'windows shutting down', i believe. I checked my motherboard (an asus) and corrected that and the problem seemed to have gone away.

Eventually though it reappeared and i relaised that whenever the internet dropped out the computer would hang at shutdown. Now whenever the internet drops out i have to force it to shutdown and restart the computer again. When the internet drops out, as far as i'm aware, every program works fine (such as word etc. ) I just can't connect to the internet or shutdown the computer.

To summarise:

1) internet drops out (happens regardless of internet connection) showing yellow triangle icon
2) computer won't shutdown after this has happened.

I've searched these forums to no avail, so does anyone out there have any ideas what this could be?

Help With Virus What To Do?

My computer is a dell xps which is fairly new, bought in october. Anyway i've never had a problem with any viruses or bugs but suddenly yesterday while on the internet, just on facebook and nothing else my computer pops up with all these security warnings. There's one that says antivirus software alert that talks about my computer being attacked and if i want to block it or not. Windows is also showing me a message saying my computer is infected. And i can't run most programs or actions because a security warning pops up saying the file is infected do you want to activate your antivirus software now? 

The program that pops up looks like it's called antispyware soft but all of this sounds like spyware and viruses to me rather than actual windows trying to warn me. So my questions are: is there a way to get rid of this? Say will buying an actual virus removing program work to remove it? Also i bought my computer before windows 7 came out but then got my free copy of windows 7 since i bought my computer right before it came out, if i need to is there something on the disks that installed windows 7 that will let me wipe and restart my entire system?

Post Virus Repair

After a day and a half of cleaning i was finally able to remove the infections on my computer. There were a few keyloggers, couple of trojans and some adware. Now everything seems to work okay. However the viruses made some changes and i can't undo them. I am unable to download anything from the internet. Ie8 simply states that my security settings do not allow downloads and ff does download but deletes files immediately after. I have no idea how to fix that or where to even start looking.system restore was affected as well so i can't use that. Can someone help me figure out how to restore my settings without having to reinstall windows yet again?

Update Installs Virus

Every time i use windows update a trojan by the name of backdoor. Win32. Pcclient is installed and most of the updates fail. My antivirus tells me it's there and i have to restart my computer to remove it. This either automatically or manually running the update. I have downloaded all the security definitions for windows malicious removal tool and windows defender. Running the removal tool my antivirus kicks in when it reaches the file and i can delete it that way. But it just reinstalls when i run windows update again.
