XP no longer freezing but still not quite right on boot

Recommended Posts

My XP did freeze up, so I did the uninstall/reinstall of the latest version.  That fixed the freeze, but it didn't fix what MB had been doing since the upgrade but prior to the computer freezing.


It boots up completely to Windows without any error, but instead of just running in the background with an icon in the system tray, the program actually opens itself up and then minimizes itself, so I have an active, minimized tab on the bottom taskbar.  I had been opening it up, checking for updates, and then clicking on the X which sends it back to running in the background with no active open tab. 


However, this is what it was doing until my computer froze.  Did I not actually fix the problem here and just set my computer back to day one of the last update (with a second freeze-up episode forthcoming)?


Is this problem what the hotfix was for or is this something else entirely?

Hello and welcome back: :)
No, the hotfix was for a different, unrelated issue.
The behavior you describe more likely relates to your "automated scheduling" for scheduled tasks (specifically update checks).
It has been reported by other users.

But it would help to have a bit more info about your system.


First, please reboot the computer to see if that resolves the issue.


Then, whether it does or doesn't:

Please read the following and attach to your next reply the 3 requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (the 3 logs are: FRST.txt, Addition.txt and CheckResults.txt)
