Frozen P.C.

Recommended Posts

Mr PC keeps getting frozen, just now Windows 7 did an automatic update and when the system was rebooted, the PC froze and was rebooted again before it worked properly. I've already had two frozen incidents this week, I ran Malwarebytes and my anti viral software and it has come up with zero, can you please tell me what else I can do?

Well if you don't want to run the other scanners and cleaners then not much else I can do to assist you. 

If you have dump logs you may be able to visit one of the other sites that specialize in dump analysis and see if they can assist you with what might be causing this issue for you.

Please visit the following site and run the Microsoft Fixit for this error in your logs
Event ID 10 is logged in the Application log

Your logs also show that you have the following error from what appears to be a print driver from a Samsung device.
Unless you want to further troubleshoot it in a General PC Support forum then I'd recommend based on advice found from other resource forums to simply disable it or if you no longer have a Samsung device you can even unintall the software.

The DgiVECP driver is the Virtual ECP Parallel Port driver. I believe it's used for systems connecting to networked printers where there's a need to go through a parallel port. It allows the printer to connect to a "virtual" parallel port.

Open a command console as Administrator and run:

SC CONFIG dgivecp start= disabled

Note the space after "start=" is REQUIRED.

You appear to also be having an issue with a wireless card from    Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
You may want to visit the support site for you make and model of computer and see if they have an updated driver for your card and try reinstalling the drivers

Error: (07/15/2013 02:49:40 PM) (Source: Microsoft-Windows-WLAN-AutoConfig) (User: NT AUTHORITY)
Description: WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\Rtlihvs.dll
Error Code: 126

You also seem to have something wrong with one of your Lenovo power control files which again perhaps a reinstalled driver may correct.

Lenovo\Power Dial

Error: (07/15/2013 06:30:02 AM) (Source: Service Control Manager) (User: )
Description: The LitModeCtrl service has reported an invalid current state 32.

Please check for updates with your Kaspersky antivirus and do a Full System scan and let me know if it finds anything or not.
The disk check appears to have corrected some issues as they no longer show in the Event Logs which is good.

Most of what is left appears to be driver and general PC issues and not malware.  Unless you want to run some other scanners for possible infection I think at this point you simply need to work on correcting the driver issues shown in the logs.
