  1. Programs stop working until computer restart


    Hi,Every once and a while almost all .exe's will either stop responding or not even open. If they open its just a white screen and task master says the program is not responding. This can be fixed by restarting my computer, but I want to know why this happens and if there is anything I can do to prevent it.Thank you

    :)

    Programs stopping and restarting

    Hello William,

    I regret the inconvenience caused to you. I will be glad to assist you with your issue.

    Let's try the below steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue:

    Step 1: I would suggest you to run System Maintenance Troubleshooter
    and check if it helps:

    • Press Windows + X key. 
    • Select Control panel.
    • In the search box, type Troubleshooter and then click
      Troubleshooting.
    • Under System and Security,
    • Click on System Maintenance and Click on Next button.

    Step 2: Run SFC Scan.

    What is SFC (System File Checker)?

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the steps given in the below article to perform SFC scan:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833?ppud=4&wa=wsignin1.0

    Note: Steps applies to Windows 10 as well.

    Step 3: If the issue persists, I suggest you
    to boot into safe mode and check if the issue persists.

    Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The word
    Safe Mode appears in the corners of your monitor to identify which monitors mode you are using.

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Run will open, type
      msconfig and hit the Enter key.
    • A system configuration box will pop up.
    • Click on Boot Tab.
    • Select or click the check box Safe mode with networking.
    • Click on Apply and ok.
    • You will then see a restart button. Click it to restart your computer.
    Once you are in safe mode, check if you are facing the issue.

    Once you completed the steps above follow the below steps on how to go back to normal mode:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Run will open, type
      msconfig and hit the Enter key.
    • A system configuration box will pop up.
    • Click on Boot Tab.
    • If you see safe mode box has a check mark in it,
      uncheck the safe mode box and hit apply or
      ok
      .
    • You will then see a restart button. Click it to restart your computer.
    • When your computer comes back up, sign in and you will now be in "normal mode".
    Let us know the status of the issue. For further assistance feel free to post your queries in Microsoft forums. We will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

  3. Windows 10 infinite restart black screen


    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Programs stop working until computer restart

    AMD processor has stopped working properly

    1. Go to www.amd.com and download the most current drivers for your card and operating system.

    2. In Windows 7 go to Start > Control Panel > Programs and features. In Windows XP go to Start > Control Panel > Add and remove programs

    3. Look for AMD Catalyst Install Manager in the list of installed programs. Right click on it and select "Change".

    3A. If you don't find the AMD Catalyst Install Manager then most likely you're using the default Windows drivers which are severely outdated. If that's the case skip to step 5.

    4. Select the third option "Uninstall all the AMD software". Follow the instructions. Restart your PC.

    5. Go to your downloads folder and run the driver installer you downloaded in step 1. Select express installation and follow the instructions. Restart your PC after installing.
