    Hi,

    Here is are my specs:

    Win VISTA X64 Ultimate SP1
    Athlon X2 5200
    4GB DDR2-800
    eVGA 590i
    BFG 9800 GTX
    WD Raptor 150GB 15k RPM
    Kaspersky AV
    AVG Anti-Spyware
    CCleaner

    I have a really weird VISTA Problem. It occurred after I did the recent update. Actually, I didn't update it. It kinda forced me to after it shutdown itself without warning while I was watching a video. Then it did that pre-config -> restart screen and then configuring screen again then it loads windows. Normal stuff until I logged in.

    I've encountered all kinds of problems with Windows OS, since WIN 95 and I've pretty much figured most of them if not I come to the forums for help :), but this one is just weird.

    There's no direct explanation for it so I'll explain what happens.


    • When I go to the orb and hover over the Control Menu to expand it or any other expandable menu, the Start / Orb minimizes itself. It minimizes as soon as an expandable menu expands sometimes it does it without expanding. So in order to select something in the expanded menu, its almost like a race between who can select and click first or who can minimize first. It is really ANNOYING.
    • When I highlight a file or files, the computer de-selects it while I'm still in the process of highlighting the icons. It does the same even when I'm highlighting empty space, creating the blue highlight field and it just disappears. All this while I am still holding down the left-click button on my mouse.
    • When I open a window, the window "Vibrates". I say vibrate because it looks like the window itself is vibrating against the screen. It acts like I'm selecting it and de-selecting over and over even though I am not doing anything.
    • When I click on an empty space on the Desktop while a window is open, it reselects itself and does that "vibrating" thing I explained above.
    • When I am watching a video, it minimizes itself into the windowed mode from full screen. It selects a window behind it if there is a window open and continues to do the "vibrating" thing. The whole time the video still plays. I have not touched anything while this happens.
    • This also has been happening to my laptop of a couple of weeks now, which I rarely use. I didn't pay much attention to it because I rarely use the laptop. Now it is happening to my desktop after it updated. I rarely update my Desktop and when I do, it is usually a force update by the OS. It doesn't even do the count-down warning before it restarts and applies the update.
    • Yes, I have done a complete and thorough scan of my computer. I have also updated everything I can update. It has not found anything and it is up to date.

    I am about to do a System Restore after this post because it is really getting on my nerves. I hope it solves the problem. I would really like this problem solved because I will need to update the OS in the future and I might have to deal with this problem AGAIN and for the laptop.

    I will post another HiJackThis log after I do a System Restore and let you guys know if it solved it.

    Thank you so much for your help,

    Constantine

    Well I just did a System Restore and it still does it. :mad::mad::mad:

    My Minidump folder is empty so I have nothing to show you in terms of files to debug.

    1) Check the event viewer for clues. don't expect to find much in there but look anyway.

    2) Try disabling Aero and see if it happens with all the graphical effects off.

    3) Other than that, I usually just backup my data and either format or do a repair install. It's almost always faster than trying to troubleshoot issues like this.

    Well I just re-updated VISTA again and no dice. :mad:

    The event viewer wasn't much of help because there really wasn't anything in it that points to this problem.

    Disabling AERO did not work either.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    There has to be other people that is experiencing this problem because 2 of my comps does it now and I don't even move files between them. My scans of both comps came out clean also.

    Anyone else has any idea? I can't find anything on Google either.

    same issue on two unrelated systems? either you have a virus or you have some sort of an electrical interference/power issue is all I can come up with.

    Well the thing is neither of the computers are running on the same outlet or power source as each other. Usually when I use the Laptop, I am outside of the house so that eliminates the power source problem.

    Second, I do not share files between the two computers and I have done a complete scan of both computers and it came up empty handed; although that doesn't necessarily point to being virus free. Again, I do not share nor I was sharing files between both computers when this started to happen.

    The only thing in common between these two computers is that it started occurring AFTER Windows VISTA forced update itself. Now even System Restore does not solve it.

    I am all out ideas here. I do no know where to begin to try and fixing this problem. My only solution is reformatting my HD; which is a route I do not want to take because it is time consuming and I have quite a lot of programs to reinstall if I do opt that "solution".

    Any help that you or anyone can suggest to get to the bottom of this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Constantine

    I personally would give up and format at this point because it will probably take more time to diagnose that it would to do a format/restore.

    Hopefully one of the actual Guru's will step in and give me a hand here.

    I'm guessing the Senior Tech Guru's went into hibernation for the Winter?

    I've yet to see one. :(

    No idea huh?

    I had somewhat of a similar problem on an XP laptop last year -- due to overheating.

    Any chance that could be the case here?

    Problems that remain after a system restore can usually (but not always) be counted on to be hardware issues.

    If not overheating here, possibly the display driver.

    My problems continued after a system restore and even in Safe Mode.

    Do yours continue in Safe Mode?


    For me, fixing it simply involved completely shutting off the laptop for an hour and blowing the dust out of all the vents.


    Also, I have a somewhat curious question -- did you start that Hijackthis scanlog using the normal interface -- or a command line of some kind? As I recall there is a command line that forces it to display Microsoft services that are normally ignored -- and yours seems to be doing that for some reason, although only some of them, as though HijackThis cannot determine that it is a Microsoft service or file being pointed to. Are the files alleged to be missing there are not? If they are not there, that might be one reason why HJT is flagging them.

    You might try running sfc /scannow and see if it fixes anything -- it will do this without any prompts or messages as long as it can find what it needs.

    One more thing, in the System log of the Event Viewer, were there any NTFS errors? If you open a command window and enter:

    fsutil dirty query c:

    does it come back "not dirty"?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your Reply.

    It does not happen in Safe Mode, only on normal boot.

    The scan did not fix anything as far as I can tell because the problem still persist after the scan.

    The system logs do not show any NTFS errors, there were some warning about my D: drive but that is about it and it doesn't happen often at all.

    Query of C: doesn't show anything when I run it It just pops up for a second and disappears.

    Any other ideas?

    This problem is quite annoying and is getting on my nerves because I cannot group highlight ANYTHING without it disappearing before I can right-click the selected group.

    Thanks,

    Constantine

    If it doesn't happen in Safe Mode, now try a "Clean Boot" and if it doesn't happen in that configuration -- use the method described to try to isolate a non-Microsoft startup or service that might be causing it.

    You might also want to try VGA mode from the f8 boot menu -- which will temporarily change your display configuration. No problem here would point to display driver problems, but would not rule them out if it continued anyway.

    Are your display drivers among the devices that you updated?

    Also note whether the problem begins immediately on normal boot after an extended shutdown (30 minutes or more) -- or takes a few minutes to start happening, which would be an indication of heat issues.



    CLEAN BOOT TROUBLESHOOTING technique

    First, restart in Safe Mode if necessary -- (tap the f8 key promptly on startup and choose the Safe Mode option from the boot menu) or Normal mode

    Then:

    Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.


    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 << written for Vista, but applies equally well to XP

    Now restart and test the issue at hand

    If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

    If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

    Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

    Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in &#8220;selective&#8221; startup mode &#8211; you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

    Thanks for your reply, I've already tried that. That's practically one of the basics in trouble shooting for an unknown cause. I appreciate the replies but I have found the problem.

    I don't know why I didn't realize it sooner, it was my Cruzer 8GB USB drive, lol. :p

    I usually just leave it on my USB port sitting there when I don't use it. It has a password in it and is not readily accessible by the computer itself. I have no idea why it does but it is the cause. If I do not enter the password and it sits there and it does what I've described as the problem is to the computer.

    I have no idea how or why it does it but it just does.

    All I have to do is enter the password into the USB Drive or unplug it and voila, it's fixed!

    I realized this when I restarted my computer a few times in an hour, I rarely restart my computer in a month hehe, and I decided to access my USB Drive and noticed that the problems disappeared.

    Weird how you can find the solution to a seemingly impossible problem in such weird ways or places.

    Thanks for the replies!
