XP Pro, Logging Off Freeze...

Postby TeMerc » Tue Dec 30, 2008 1:10 am

On my Dads box, recently it began to do something odd. <?>

When I'd log off my acct, like when I know I won't be online again, the thing freezes and the monitor light goes to that dim setting like when there's no power or signal. Only thing I can do is hard boot.

Been looking around and I see I have to check some services which assists in this operation. Now I just gotta remember to actually get to it when I get there and not when I'm half way out the door. rofl

Most likely going to be a program or service not shutting down properly. Ensure you check the Event Viewer ;)

Hello Tom I also had these issues years ago and I solved it by installing uphclean "User Profile Hive Cleanup Service" from MS.
You might want to give it a try if you don't find a solution.

Ahh... I've heard of this tool before, great idea. Think I'll make a special trip to Dads house tomorrow. ;)

It worked for me when I was having issues with a certain app shutting down.
Hopefully it will work for you too. x*~

Well I think this ran. Is it supposed to do anythng after you get the successful install? ?>!

I don't see anything in /Proggram Files or anywhere else.

Regardless tho, it didn't fix this problem. kilstb

This didn't show much, crash dump from Feb and it has not been acting up that long:

Code: Select all

On Sat 2/23/2008 9:16:27 AM your computer crashed
This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe
Bugcheck code: 0x1000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80582452, 0xF948F7E4, 0x0)
Error: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M
file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Likely the culprit is another driver on your system which cannot be identified.
Oh well, I'll do more digging around this weekend.

Tom it runs silently as systems shuts down.
There should be a folder in program files by the name UPHClean
If that folder isn't listed then there was a problem installing.
Below is a link that well tell you all about User Profile Hive Cleanup Service

REMOVAL
=======

If you used automatic installation:
- Open Control Panel
- Open Add/Remove Programs
- Click on User Profile Hive Service and select Remove

If you manually installed:
- Run the program with the -remove switch to stop the service and remove it
(e.g. uphclean -remove)
- Remove the UPHClean directory under c:\program files


http://download.microsoft.com/download/a/8/7/a87b3d05-cd04-4743-a23b-b16645e075ac/readme.txt

I thought for sure that it would do the trick.
Sorry to here that it didn't work for you. <?>

I'll double check over the weekend, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't any folder named as such.

Thanks
