  1. I preface this by stating that I would never believe this could happen if someone else told me it happened. I have a laptop running Windows 10. Everyone knows how this OS forces you to do things you may otherwise want to wait to do later. The anniversary 1607 upgrade was set to run. I didn't realize this was akin to installing the OS, but this is irrelevant now. I quickly went and saved a number of files I had open and a notepad file had not been saved, so I quickly "saved as". So, once this upgrade and a ton of other updates completed, I went back to open a number of notepad files.
  2. I have a Windows 7 disk, would that work? You can install the OS without overwriting data, correct? Also, will it wipe out things like installed printer software? Thanks.
  3. It ran a long and short test by default. What do you think happened? Is it possible to plug this hard drive into a newer or older machine to recover the data? I have most of the stuff on there backed up. I actually can't think of anything on there that I don't have on another device, but want to make sure. I also don't have an XP disc. This computer is pretty old. Thanks
  4. Was able to successfully run memtest86+. Showed no errors, but only ran it once. Ran the hard drive test and found no errors as well. Had trouble finding the right one, but was able to get the boot cd running and found no errors. Since I can't run anything in windows, should I run any other tests? Let me say this, the only way I get the BSOD is if I run windows recovery console. Otherwise, it just keeps cycling as if it is going to boot properly, but never does. I appreciate the help. EDIT: Just noticed that the log states, not able to get smart data. Before that it states,
  5. Thanks for the reply. I am going to work on this problem now and hopefully get back to you tonight.
  6. Hello MB Forum, I recently hit my power supply on/off switch (accidentally) on my machine running Windows XP. When I tried to reboot, I encountered a screen I have never seen before. It was similar to the screen encountered when booting in safe mode, but this one included "return to previous configuration" or something like that. I am using another computer to post and don't want to try and reboot the problematic machine. It kept cycling back and forth between this screen and the regular boot process. Finally, I got a BSOD and then decided I might want to stop and post on this forum.
  7. I'm trying to get around to work on this. Please excuse my delay.
  8. Yes, it appears to be quite stable. No crashes since the post I last mentioned them. Thanks for that. I wish I understood what you did, but I guess there is no need. Did you just disable that daemon "file/exe" from starting at startup? So, I could manually start it up if I needed to in the future. Thanks for all your patience and help! Edit - right after I posted this FF crashed. So buggy. I was typing a response in gmail if that helps. Only had one tab opened. Crashes seem more likely when a lot of tabs are open.
  9. That made a noticeable difference just on startup. Previously, it might take a minute to open FF after logging on.

  10. Sorry, couldn't get around to working on this yesterday. I went ahead and "cleaned" with ESET; no apology necessary, but thanks. Not sure what you mean regarding NvCplDaemon and adjusting the video card. I have to use the NVIDIA control panel to fit the screen to my television. I actually have problems getting games to fit the screen still. It cuts things off on the sides and top/bottom. But that may not have anything to do with Daemon. Here are the FRST and addition logs: Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x86) Version: 05-12-2016 Ran by poi (administrator) on
  11. okay thanks a lot for all your help today. what about the eset result? should i clean?
  12. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to either one. Should I disable it? If so, how? Also, should I "clean" the files found in ESET scan? Thanks
  13. I did a search for daemon and a number of files showed up. There is a cidaemon under system32 and a DAEMONU.EXE-0F10B80C.pf under prefetch and then a number of files under the NVIDIA folder.
  14. This is the entire folder. Do you want the newest file only? Minidump.zip
  15. This is a new entry (Dec. 1) - Mini120116-01.dmp Yeah, that screen shot was not as bad as the other. I tried to capture another one, but I was prompted that I did not have enough memory to do so. You can see in the upper left some black. That was about three times as big and the same for inside the save as box. Almost the entire save as box was not viewable. This happened when you click save to file. All of the desktop icons flicker when you click it as well. Here is the SAlog: Result of Security Analysis by Rocket Grannie (x86) Updated: 20th November, 2016 Running from:C:\D
