unusual run-time error with mbam (among other system glitches)

Recommended Posts

And I'd rather not do a hard shutdown unless its the only option

DO NOT reboot it.  Let it complete the update.   Go to sleep and wake up in the morning to look at if you have to.

 

Rebooting in the middle of updating can make it so it never boots again if you catch it at an important update part.

Shouldn't take this long, but really hate to force reboot as I've seen those go belly up.  If you can wait longer that would be my suggestion.  It could simply be hung but if it's actually working then it should be left alone to complete.

 

Is the hard drive light blinking ?  Do you hear anything to make you think it's still working?

 

If it just won't go any further then you may not have a choice and might need to power cycle the computer.

Yep n other lights are blinking, just the steady red of the power on light, and as far as I can tell the only sound coming from the tower is the fan.

Not sure about the mfg, and yeah I'm using the key from the sticker on the tower and it worked no problem the last couple of times before I came to this forum

Oh pardon me I got two characters switched I guess I need caffeine, installation has resumed. And I was checking several times before posting, I'm not even dyslexic.

well the windows repair lagged out on that please wait... screen too... i don't need anything from my old failing drive now, if i disconnected it and tried again, maybe it's interfering somehow?

Wouldn't hurt to try.  If it continues to do so then you may need to simply reinstall Windows from scratch which will resolve all of these issues.

yeah i'm thinking that, clean install... i guess i'll have to move everything from the new drive now for now.

well the problem with the clean install is that i'm not able to hook up to the internet and there's no sound... colossal noob showing through again... i think i must've thrown away the wrong disks when i had my old tower carted away last year.... on a lighter note Malwarebytes works just fine on the clean windows, though it's outdated due to not being able to connect to the internet.

that's what i don't know, it wasn't a pre-bundled tower from a manufacturer it was one of those in-store bundles it just says "multi-media computer system" at the bottom in the front.

See if you can download and run this Intel Chipset utility

 

Then download the attach PCI_Dectect.zip and copy the folder and files out to a USB stick and then copy them to the desktop on the affected computer.

 

Then run the PCI32.EXE file and it will list hardware in your computer in order to locate the proper driver.

 

PCI_Detect.zip

Couple questions, the intel chipset installer, after it restarts the computer is it done or is it supposed to do more? And the pci32 thing doesn't seem to work, the readme suggests I find and uninstall "motherboard monitor" due to it being outdated, and no clue where to look for that so I'm running a search now, unless you know?

The Intel Chipset driver adds needed entries in the registry.

 

Click on START --  RUN and type in CMD.EXE and click OK

Then assuming you copied the PCI folder to the desktop type the following and press the Enter key.

 

CD %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\PCI

 

Then type type PCI32.EXE >MyComputer.txt

 

Then post back the results of MyComputer.txt file here.
