  1. Random but regular hangs and lockups for everything since 1909 update


    On a Dell Optiplex 790, I am experiencing random but somewhat regular hangs, lockups, and sometimes even freezing since I updated to version 1909.

    This was never an issue with Windows 7, nor was it an issue with version 1707. It started with 1909. wermgr and werfault is constantly trying to report issues to Microsoft. I can tell because Avast Firewall is constantly asking me to allow it which I do.

    It is happening randomly with literally every program I try to run. Firefox, OBS, various games, even system stuff. As soon as I tried to search in the taskbar, the search option disappeared for about two minutes and Avast Firewall asked if I wanted werfault to connect to the internet.

    I even had a sipnotify error and Googling sipnotify suggests that it is only on Windows 7, so I added 'Windows 10' to the search and still nothing regarding sipnotify on Windows 10. throwing quotes around "Windows 10" shows junk results.

    Does anybody know what the problem could be?

    :)

    User.000 issue after updating to 1909

    I'm one of the many people suffering from issues with user profiles after applying Update 1909 to Windows 10. I've read all the threads I can find on the topic here and have followed the suggestions, all to no avail. Any other thoughts are appreciated.

    After applying Update 1909, the ProfileImagePath was changed to c:\users\User.000
    One file that was always in use and couldn't be removed was left in c:\users\User (can't recall or find the exact file now), so I could never rename or remove the c:\user\User directory.

    I followed the multiple suggestions from Brink and others:
    • Rebooted at least 6 times
    • Enabled hidden Administrator
    • Booted into Safe Mode
    • Changed ProfileImagePath
    • Tried to rename c:\users\User but couldn't because a file was still in use
    • Copied all data from c:\users\User.000 into c:\users\User
    • Rebooted and had temporary profile
    • Followed steps in Brink tutorial to change ImageProfilePath; rebooted with no change
    • Restored using Restore Point from before Update 1909 - returned to single profile state (User.000)
    • Removed each update that was installed individually and rebooted after each update removal - profile state never changed
    • After all updates were removed, repeated the steps above with hidden Administrator, changing profile, etc. - same issue with file in use in c:\users\User
    • Followed all steps above with hidden Administrator but without copying files from User.000 to User - same results

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

  3. 6710 Navigator random lockups during navigation

    While extensively using the GPS functionality of my new 6710 for the first time this week, I've come across a problem of random lockups during navigation.

    There seems to be no obvious pattern to the phenomenon, sometimes it occurs just a few seconds after the route has been calculated and navigation has startet, at other times it occurs after already having navigated a large part of the route.

    My subjective impression is, lockups are more likely to occur whenever the device tries to calculate an alternate route (when the user instructed it to do so by selecting the respective option) due to traffic information it received.

    After a lockup, the navigation program cannot be closed the usual way (by selecting 'Exit'), but only by pressing the red 'hang up' key; and even then, it stays in memory (it's still in the 'open programs' list). Sometimes, the phone altogether is locked
    up, only way to "re-animate" it then is to switch it off and on again.

    Anyone experienced a similar issue, and/or has an idea what might be the problem here, and how to solve it?

    Random Lockups

    any1 got ant ideas why i would suddenly be getting random lockups in games and in windows?

    it just freezes and i cant even use the reset button,i have to press the power button to get out of it.
    temps seem ok around 38 - 42c idle and mid 50s under load ,when it locks it games theres no looping sound or anything ,just a frozen screen.

    most of the pc was bought and built last August ,with the exceptions of the PSU + HD`s

    any help would be appreciated.
