Did you have Avast installed previusly or was it the first run?
In any case, try to do a System Restore to a point previous to this strange behaviour.
If you can't localise it in your Programs (Start) find exe file in

C:\Windows\System32\restore\rstrui.exe

Presume your system disk is C: and system forlder is windows. Use the proper one if it's different

Factory reset lenovo g580


Step 1:
There are a variety of reasons you may need to reboot a Lenovo laptop. These can include the installation of a new program, the dreaded blue screen of death or to free up memory that has been hijacked by a program that is now closed. There are three ways to reboot and all are simple to accomplish.

Click on your start menu button on your screen. Click on "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer." Click on the drop down box if you are running a version of Windows before XP (such as 2000 or 98). Select the "Restart" option and then click "OK." On XP or later versions, click on "Restart." The laptop will then reboot. Press and hold down the "Alt," "Ctrl" and "Shift" keys simultaneously. This will bring up the Task Manager. Pressing and holding the same keys again will force the computer to shut down. Press the power button to reboot the computer. This feature should be used when the mouse has stopped working and you cannot access the start button. Hold the power button in the "Off" position for approximately 5 seconds. This will force the machine to shut down. Press or slide the button again to reboot the laptop. Use this process when you get the "blue screen of death" or the computer is not responding to either the mouse or the keyboard.

I keep getting the message The data file 'personal folders' was not closed properly when I open Outlook, how can I prevent this from happening?


Hi,


The underlying reason why Outlook displays this "data file" check is very simple. There is a single flag in the header of the data file that is a Boolean value (True or False). While you use Outlook the value of this flag is constantly changing as the data file is updated. When the update begins the value is changed to False and then when the update completes the value is changed back to True (implying the update is finished and successful).


So, the key to the problem is the shut down process because once the Outlook.exe process is exited this flag value cannot be changed. If the Outlook.exe process was terminated prematurely or a 3rd party add-in did not properly set the flag value to True then the flag value can be left at False. If you start Outlook with a data file where the value of the flag is False you are guaranteed to see the "data file" check. If the value of the flag is True then you will not see the "data file" check.


Right now, there are a few known common causes for this issue:


- Shutting down Windows before the Outlook.exe process has exited

- 3rd party add-ins improperly "closing" the data file

- Outlook crashing

- Non-Outlook process accessing the data file

Regarding the post advised by Rod, I would like to explain more detailed:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When you shut down Outlook, the Outlook window goes away, but the Outlook.exe process can continue to run for some time. That's why you can see Outlook.exe sitting in Task Manager for a few minutes after closing the Outlook window. If you shut down Windows while the Outlook.exe process is still running Windows will not wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit. So, you increase the likelihood of encountering the "data file check" issue the next time you start Outlook (because the Outlook.exe process was not able to "close" your data file(s) completely before Windows was shut down).

On the other hand, if you leave Outlook running when you shut down Windows the Outlook.exe process will continue to run and exit on its own. When Windows is shut down, it sends messages to all visible window frames telling them to quit, and will wait for those programs to quit before shutting down. Not until all processes with open windows have exited will Windows finally shut down. This is somewhat counter-intuitive to most people as traditional training has always advised manually closing applications before shutting down Windows.

Laptop powers up i log into any user acct . and within a min or 2 i get a system shutdown message and comp counts down for 60 seconds then shuts down and restarts c:\windows\system\32\lsass.exe ...


You have unfortunately picked up a copy of the old lsass virus. This was someone's idea of a funny virus in as much as it would just keep giving you the countdown and shutting your computer down. If you have an anti-virus program installed on your computer what you can do is boot your computer into safe mode (this can be accomplished by pressing F8 during your computers bootup. On the menu that appears choose to boot in safe mode), and then running a complete scan on your entire hard drive. By booting the computer in Safe Mode all of the extra programs that normally load will not do so. Once your scan is complete, and you have deleted all of the infected files, you should then be able to boot your computer into the regular Windows program.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

Hello, yesterday when I was surfing the net on my pc (using opera) I suddenly got this weird program that I know for a fact that I've never installed. It said it was a anti-virus program and that I had...


Your best bet is to reboot into safe mode and scan the system,doing this will help ensure that program doesn't start.If after doing this you are still seeing that program you might want to try doing a system restore,try to find one that is a few days older then when the problem started.Starting a system restore can not be stopped once started so take your time when picking the restore point.
Ps.you can run the system restore when your in safe mode,I'd say doing that would be your best bet so as to ensure that program is not running.
Hope this has helped,I'll check back in a few hours to see what progress you've had,good luck

Help needed !!! opened Windown media center earlier today, and now even with all applications shut down, the file wmpnetwk.exe is constantly using ~ 50% of my CPU. I Have ended the process with task...


Wmpnetwk.exe is a media player network sharing service. It is annoying and useless(as you have already noticed).
Click start->Run->Type in "services.msc"(without the quotes). Then click on the services tab, and uncheck the box next to wmpnetwk.exe. Click apply, close the configuration utility and reboot your computer. If you ever want to start the media sharing service again you can start it from windows media player.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

My vista is going slower when i shot down


When you shut down I think you mean. You would likely need to disable all your startup programs and then re-enable them one by one until you locate the culprit.
Click START/RUN and type in MSCONFIG.
Click on services tab. Click disable all.
Reboot.
Shut down.
If the problem is gone, repeat the process re-enabling things one by one until you locate whats hanging the system on shut down.

Explorer.exe uses all available CPU


Norton anti-virus is a resource HOG. Disable it from running at start-up. It may be trying to download updates as the pc is booting. Use AVG anti virus, it is free and works very well.
