Programs not responding in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1


If a program is not responding, right click your task bar and open Task Manager. If the CPU is at 100%, that's your problem.
There are three possible reasons for this that I can think of right now:
1. Too many programs open, close some
2. The scan is taking up a lot of CPU, start the scan when you're not using your system
3. Your system is low-spec and cannot handle the program properly
Just remember that these reasons may not apply to you

On an off-note:
Hurray! Another ASC 6 user! XD

I have not used my Photo Viewer for a few months. Was working ok. But now Software would not respond when I plugged keychain in. Tried many times. Uninstalled PhotoViewer Software. Re installed same....


The program is corrupt. Uninstall it, delete all remaining files and folders, run a registry cleaner, defragment, download a new installer and install it again but in a different location.
Or you could just install a much better photo viewer   http://www.irfanview.com/

Many Computer Programs "Not Responding".


How much memory do you have? If less than 1GB, that could create a serious bottle neck.

Otherwise, my guess is that there is a process running in the background that is using a lot of CPU cycles....maybe a virus. I would try these things:

A. Update your anti-virus software and do a full scan.
B. Run a free utility like Spybot Search & Destroy to check for malware.
C. Download free programs called "ProcessExplorer" and "AutoRuns" (should be available from Microsoft). ProcessExplorer will show you ALL of the processes running on your computer, and how much resources they are using. Disable the ones you don't need.
AutoRuns shows you all of the software that starts up when you boot your computer. Again, disabling the ones you don't need helps a lot.
D. Defragment your hard drive. I recommend the free Smart Defrag utility from IObit.

You can always get a quick look at what your computer is doing by using CTRL-ALT-DEL; selecting Task Manager; then going to the Processes tab. If you see a process using a bunch of CPU resources, and have nothing running, you might want to research that one.

Good luck!

Stlog.dll is not responding


It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

MBAM !

for a free one its pretty darned good !

From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.

Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.

Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.

When its done let it clean anything it finds.

Its where I always start with an infected machine.

As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying

Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

It may just be a "leaking application"

These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.

May I suggest you download
"hijackthis"

It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.

They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.

Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.

If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

I get a box showing up on my computer saying "a runtime error has occurred" Do you wish to debug. OR "your program is not responding". I end up getting kicked out every time. This is happening all the time...


Within the runtime error message there should be a program name or a path to a program listed. Please post that information so we can better assist you.

Keep getting that internet exlorer is not responding.


Tabbed browsing using Internet explorer is like running multiple instances of Internet explorer, and depending on how your computer is using its resources, IE could be taking up the little that is left, thus your processor is overworked, and your memory is maxed out. On the other hand, you might just have a defective installation of the progra, that you could either repair through control panel > Add/Remove programs or even update
Websites with a lot of graphics will determine how much of your system resources Internet explorer will demand in addition to its required resources.
Just to add a little perspective, if you have a laptop, with 'an almost full harddisk' and a processor at say 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, and Windows Vista, McAfee or Norton Antivirus, Internet Explorer 6 through 8, Office 2007, Spybot S&D and a series of other programs that are constantly running, you're doomed, because if all those programs run their services, your computer will constantly freeze
