Shutdown problem this morning

  birdface 05:59 15 Mar 2012

Windows encountered a shutdown this morning warning on screen.

Just switched the computer on and went to make a cup of coffee and thats was the problem on the screen when I came back.

Windows can check to see if it can fix the problem.So I clicked on check and nothing appeared after that.

Anyhow computer seems to be working ok but this is what it said in the Box.

Can't open memorey dump file and Microsoft wants me to download and pay for this.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

Anyone else know how or what to use to open this.

Problem might be in device manager where I have an unknown device showing.

No driver files have been loaded for said device.Not digitally signed,Not sure why it should say that when no drivers are installed.

I have tried deleting it and rebooting but computer freezes on restart so had to run last good configuration in safe mode to get it to start again.

I am only assuming that this is the problem,it could be something else I suppose.

Use this: Bluescreen view. It gives much better info than MS. This should identify the driver that may or may not be causing you problems.

ICF. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my problem,I am going to concentrate on fixing the problem in the Device Manager first to see if that sorts it or not.

It seems a bit complicated for my Tiny mind you would have thought that it should be easy to see what dump files you have on your computer without having to download[ the 700MB ISO file (debugging tools)

I think I found the problem in device manager it may have been last week when I found a flash drive that I had never used before and plugged it into the computer but could not get it to work.

If that was the case you would think it should be Ok to delete it in device manager but the computer will not start properly when I do.And I think that may well be the cause of my problem.

Just deleted it again then ran my registry cleaner to see if that helps remove it.

Will give it a reboot shortly to see if any difference.

Is it Avast causing the problems and is it a case of removing it then downloading it again.

Managed to get rid of that unknown device in device manager so that solved that little problem.

Seems to be starting a bit quicker since I fixed the problem in device manager.

So will wit and see if I get another BSOD or not.Only got another 34 days before my Avast runs out.So If I get any more problems I will delete it and see if that helps.

It's looks like it, I would try completely uninstalling it and then reinstalling and see how it goes.
