The Explorer is crashed by a file called psdprotect.dll which belongs to a program called EgisTec MyWinLocker (C:\Program Files (x86)\EgisTec MyWinLocker\x64\psdprotect.dll). The tool is from 2010, so update or uninstall it: PROBLEM_CLASSES: NULL_POINTER_READ Tid [0x15c0] Frame [0x00]: psdprotect LAST_CONTROL_TRANSFER: from ...

Since no one answered, and my "fix" worked, here is the solution. I used a CCleaner (without trying to advertise) to clear all the browser data. After that it worked again. Probably a reinstall would've done the same, but as I said, I wanted to keep my extension data etc.

While it could be another power supply issue, it could very well be an over heating issue. The error with Windows was an unhandled exception, but since it is resetting while using Memtest, it rules out Windows altogether and there no need to go further with that for now. It's possible that your processor could be over heating and the system is automatically ...

I've upgraded to a newer insider build (14371) and the problem is gone.

Of course right after I post this is when I think to actually look in one of the Crash Reports... $ less /Users/acobster/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/McAfee Reporter_2016-06-21-102801_Tomato.crash It contained a few paths where McAfee stuff appears to be lurking. When I purged those directories, the errors stopped: $ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/McAfee $ ...

This seems to be a known issue when installing the technical preview / insider preview builds. Microsoft have released a Patch for this. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020114

You're right, Explorer is crashing, and not displaying an error message. If you haven't installed anything after you joined the Insider Preview and updated, then it's could be something that the update broke. Open up your Event Viewer and see if there's something specific that's causing the crash. Then use Nirsoft's ShellExView to disable it, or disable ...

For overheating I would do the following: Clean CPU/GFX fans and heatsinks of any dust. This will help in the short term. If your case has filters for air flow, clean those. Opening case on hot days would help. The end game would be to buy a good air cooler and redo your thermal paste as it's been running at high temps which can degrade the efficiency. I ...

The problem is in your graphic card driver ("nouveau"). Possibly the browser want to use some acceleration, which are incorrectly coded in nouveau driver for your card. Try to check if there is a new driver, or eventually disable some acceleration (until there will be a new driver).

I have the same GPU and ran in the same problems as you but i was using Windows 10. If you are using the AMD lastest drivers (Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta), try switching on the old catalyst one (15.7.1), i personally had alot of problems with Crimson Edition drivers. If its still not working, i suggest using Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode to ...

Artifacts means 99% failing hardware, so unfortunately your best bet is to get a new GPU. If you have someone, who will borrow you another GPU you can try that. Or if you want to be 100% sure your GPU is bad, try putting it into someone else computer. Also, when GPU is failing, the last resort is "baking the graphic card". As crazy as it sounds, it works, ...

Sound's like it could be a cache issue that windows 7 can't handle. I found a guide here that explains how to clear access cache on close. Click on File > Options > Current Database Scroll to the "Caching Web Services and Sharepoints table" Check "Use the cache format that is compatible with Microsoft Access 2010 and later" Check "Clear Cache on Close" ...

It sounds like a driver issue. Sometimes Windows tries to use generic drivers for several things. Most of the time they work. Visit the manufacturer's site and see if they have any Win 10 drivers for your model. If you can look under the Device Manager, you maybe able to see any devices having problems. Look for ? or ! on devices. Please post any ...

Since you write of RMA-ing the components individually, I assume you spec'ed and assembled this PC yourself. In light of your update saying someone else tested the memory and claims it is ok, I'm going to focus on this part of your question: here are the components (it's possible that some of them are just not compatible well enough, I don't know) Yes, ...

Use notepad++ for quick notes. It will keep everything even without saving. There will be a red floppy disk icon indicating an unsaved document but you can close and re-open the program and your notes will still be there. It's a very handy feature I'm not sure a lot of people are aware of. P.S. And in response to other user comments, you don't need to ...

The problem looks clear from the screenshot. If the readings are correct, you have a CPU thermal transfer problem. The core temp (package) is extremely high (100) compared to CPU socket temp (43), which means that you need to remove the heat-sink, clean it up and add thermal paste, because the heat no longer transfers well from CPU to heat-sink. Also, ...

Your temperatures are extremely high. Your computer is crashing as the CPU is so hot it is automatically shutting down to prevent hardware failure. You need to apply thermal paste (properly) now! Once you do so the temperatures should fall back to safe temperatures, and your PC will be quieter.

I had a similar issue some month back, after a bit of research I found out that the issue was within the "IDE SATA" driver that came with the motherboard. I uninstalled the specific driver via Computer Management/Device Manager and installed the "Windows standard driver" instead, suddenly the computer stopped freezing. This was meant as a comment but since ...

The bursts sound a lot like storage problems. Most OSes today assume that the (local) storage is perfect all the times and if it isn't, they patiently wait until the disk responds. As most processes depend on small disk access, almost everything comes to a halt until the generous timeouts (can be minutes sometimes) are reached. I would suggest testing ...

If it happens when doing CPU-intensive tasks I would suspect overheating, either because a fan is stuck or broken (old computers), or because the thermal paste is badly applied or the heatsink is incorrectly installed (new computers). It's easy enough to check for: there are software temperature monitors that can graph the temperature and sound alarms. If ...
