Blackscreen on Boot up
« on: August 13, 2015, 03:02:37 PM »
I've recently upgraded to windows 10 from 8.1 and reverted it back again from 10 to 8.1 through the 1 month recovery offer. From there, whenever I would boot my laptop on, grimefighter would start and "sedate my pc". My screen just remains black for two hours after it prepared the ninjas for a sneak attack.

There also isn't anything I could do on boot up. No mouse controls nor keyboard shortcuts as GrimeFighter sedates my pc and countsdown from 10 to 1

Would like to bump this thread, having the exact same issue.

Just to be clear, this is an issue with GrimeFighter.  The new version of the program, Cleanup, does not cause black or blue screens.  There may be a few items we still need to work out but the number of support tickets has gone down by more than 50% since cleanup was released and none concerning blue/black screens or incompatible hardware.

Regarding the issue at hand for Richard and Nigel, I will pass this to our Dev team and hopefully come back with a workaround asap.

Thanks,
