Microsoft Windows (The application is not responding...)
« on: December 30, 2013, 08:10:07 PM »
Hello all,

Since a couple of days ago, whenever I turn on my laptop normally, it loads until the "Welcome" screen is reached. It then becomes unbearably slow. After waiting, the desktop is partially displayed (without icons, etc.), but is completely unresponsive and I am eventually presented with this message:

'Microsoft Windows
The application is not responding. The program may respond again if you wait.
Options: END PROCESS or CANCEL'

Ask away for further details and/or clarifications. The specification of my laptop are as follows:

Windows Edition: Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1
Model: HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel Core i5-2410M CPU, 2.3 GHz
RAM: 4 GB

Thank you for any help on this matter.

Kind regards,

Koray

I have now read it. Should I work through it chronologically or download a particular program stated within the topic.

Kind regards,

Looks to me that all of the following should be fix.
But please do nothing before someone who has more knowledge about otl has confirmed it.

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.

Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.

  • After the scan has finished click on the Clean button.
Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.

  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Post logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.

Hello Magna,

Thanks for your response.

I have applied your fix and attached each post log file for both OTL and AdwCleaner.

My laptop is now running normally, but the avast! service is still disabled under msconfig, as it was preventing me from booting my laptop.
Should I now attempt to re-enable this service?

Kind regards,

Koray
