Log off is worthless RRS feed

  •  

     

    If I log off Windows 7 and log back in, all I get is TOTAL LOCKUP.  Windows will not restart with most of the original startup items.  All I get is the circle jerk.  Unplug is my only option.  How can I fix this?

     

    So far Windows 7 is a farce‼

  • Hi,

     

    Try to use Diagnostic startup to check if you still have this log off issue. Diagnostic startup starts Windows with basic services and drivers only. This mode can help rule out basic Windows files as the problem.

  • Thanks for the suggestion Alex.

    I was reticent to to consider the clean boot process because of the sour experience with my last Win 7 installation.  Windows would not boot up, just hang on a blank screen,  I managed to get into Safe mode and did the "msconfig, disable all non MS sevices and startup apps."  When I tried restart - NOTHING, not even Safe mode.  The install disk routine reported that the Repair function could not repair nohow and that it could not find the image I had made (I could find it at the command prompt) to restore.  My only option was to reinstall Win 7.  Grrrr.  This time with a Ghost backup that I know works because I've tested it.

    Anyways, this time clean boot (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135) worked.  After the long process of elimination I am pleased to report that the offender was the MBAMService in Malwarebytes.  This is the protection module that is in their pay package. It worked (somewhat buggy) in XP, no longer.  Stick with the free app.   I "sc delete"d the process and I'm good to go.

    Now on to another Ghost backup before something else goes haywire...

    Thank you again Alex for waking me up.

    1a. Insert the Windows 7 DVD or repair disk and restart your computer. Boot from the DVD, press a key if prompted.
    1b. Or if the computer can boot you can press F8 instead repeatedly at boot and chose "Repair your computer" then go to step 4.
    2. Choose your language and click Next.
    3. Click Repair Your Computer and then select the operating system you want to repair.
    4. Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.

  • This computer is less than 30 days old.  I've already reinstalled Windows 7 twice. 

     

    This could also be a hardware issue. If you just bought it return it to the store and get a replacement.

  • First try gives me a perpetual black screen after log off/ log in (with mouse support, BFD)  I was amused to see an option to restore an image.  I actually made a backup image on my first Win7 installation.  That silliness DID NOT work when I needed it.  I can't even open it since.  "Back up your computer"  Does not exist‼

    On to the command prompt.

  • Second try.


    bootrec /fixMBR
    bootrec /fixBoot
    bootrec /rebuildBCD

     

    Stupid windows 7 scrambled my desktop icons on restart.  This is not acceptable.  Here goes log off.

  • Second try put me right back where I started.  If I log off and log back on, I get what looks like a desktop except that there is NO user input available.  Not <Ctrl><Shift><Esc> not <Ctrl><Alt><Delete> not nothing nohow except pull the plug.  GREAT.  Very excellent.

  • You can try to boot into safe mode then create a new user account (make sure you set the user as an Administrator) the restart and boot into windows but log in as the new user.

    Does this still lock up your PC?

  • Maybe you missed it 3090 - it must have gone right over your head.  MBAM is the culprit, the perp.  I am not gonna (and hope to never have to) create a new user account.  That would really get me steamed.
