Internet Browsers All Hang

Aug 14, 2015

This will be in layman's terms. The new Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Google Chrome, all get stuck, or hang. They take up to 3 minutes or even up to 5 minutes to unstick. Running on Toshiba Satellite. Just upgraded for free last night, and I was too tired, lazy, and dumb to do anything smart like a clean install, use a cool tool, etc.

Browser/Email :: Browsers Hang / Freeze And Crash

Oct 12, 2015

I am using a Dell XPS-17 L702X laptop with 8GB of DDR3 RAM and two internal drives, 500GB each. I have 408 GB of free space on the OS drive, which is Drive C. I am running a clean installation of Windows 10 Pro x64. I've been searching for solutions for days and I've already read the posts on this forum that concern my problem. I have yet to find a solution. This problem occurs with my Pale Moon and Edge browsers, which are both up to date, and my research indicates that the Chrome browser also experiences my problem for some users. I use Pale Moon at all times simply because I've found it to be the best browser available. I tried the Edge browser simply to see if the same browser hang problem occurred while using it, and it does.

I didn't have this problem when I did an upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate x64 to Windows 10 Pro x64. My browsers worked perfectly. This problem only occurred after I did a reformat of the Hard Drive and did a clean installation of Windows Pro x64. The browser hangs every minute or less and the hangs several time a minute for about three to five seconds and then everything returns to normal . It freezes occasionally. It crashes but not often. It took me a very long time to compose this post due to all the hangs. Whenever the browsers hang the cooling fan sometimes increases and sometimes it does not. Although I cannot see the words I type while the browser hangs I can continue to type and the words will show once the hanging stops. I don't get black screens and I've never had to reboot. I simply have to wait.

Device Manager shows two display adapters, the top listing being Intel HD Graphics 3000 and the bottom listing shows NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M. Both adapters show that drivers are installed and list the version number. I've tried updating them in Device Manager and both show as having the latest drivers. I installed and ran the Intel Driver Utility and it shows "No Intel drivers discovered" on my system for the Intel adapter. NVIDIA states that my GeForce GT 555M adapter is not supported on Windows 10 and that they have no intention of providing a driver for my adapter for Windows 10. I cannot install an older NVIDIA driver and even if I could I would not be able to run it in compatibility mode as others have tried and it's not possible.

I checked Dell's website for updated display adapter drivers but Dell states that they do not and will not support Windows 10. Don't ask me why because I don't know although it aggravates me immensely. My laptop certainly has the hardware to support Windows 10. I think that's a poor attitude for Dell to have. I currently have three Dell laptops and three Dell desktops. Dell will get no more business from me, although the company could probably care less. The Dell BIOS is version A19, which is the latest version for my laptop.

the Chrome version of flash, virtual memory size, hardware acceleration, third party software, etc, etc, etc. Acronis is not installed because I had problems with every retail version of Acronis I own and therefore refuse to use it again. I am not running a second monitor. I don't use Chrome. My virtual memory has been set to 4000/8000 MB. I have disabled hardware acceleration in Adobe Flash. There is plenty of storage space in Adobe Flash. I have completely uninstalled Adobe Flash with the Flash Uninstall Utility, rebooted and the problem remains without Adobe Flash being installed. After reinstalling Adobe Flash the problem remains. The problem is not associated with my Microsoft mouse or the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. The mouse cursor will move during the times the browser hangs. I am not using any browser extensions. Using Clean Boot to diagnose the problem provided no relief. Doing a "Windows Repair" showed nothing to repair. sfc /scannow shows no problems with the file system. Kaspersky Internet Security is not causing the problem.

Internet Browsers / Shockwave Crashing On Lenovo Yoga13?

Sep 14, 2015

I have upgraded my laptop over a month now with windows 10 and never had major issues.

Recently (over a week now) internet browsers keep crashing whenever there is video content. Sites like facebook, youtube etc.. even apps for youtube do not work. I've checked a bit and seems like shockwave is the fault. Tried to check for updates but didn't find anything useful on the net.

Internet Connection Fine / Browsers Won't Connect To Certain Websites

Aug 8, 2015

I have recently upgraded to Windows 10. I am having a problem with all of the web browsers installed on my system (except the one built in to Steam). My conncetion is perfectly fine, but I cannot connect to Facebook or Google on Chrome, Edge, Internet Explorer or Firefox, and can't connect to Reddit on Firefox only. I tried pinging each of these websites on my command prompt and recieved responses each time. These seem to be the only websites affected by the problem. The web browser built in to Steam seems uneffected by this problem.

Browser/Email :: Internet Connection But Browsers Don't Work Periodically

Jan 14, 2016

After having my laptop on for a few hours I encounter a situation where I clearly have an internet connection but my browsers do not work, (both Firefox and Edge). What's weird is, on firefox, it will usually go to home page (google) and google will search, but from there every link I try to click on will display as 'unable to connect'. The only remedy is to power down and reboot.

Reading around I see this issue cropping up back as far as windows 7 but no definitive cause, although potential DNS issues are mentioned.

Stuck In A Hang Up In Booting

Aug 20, 2015

Upgrade from Win 7 64bit to Win 10 64 bit on a Gateway laptop 3 days ago and everything worked well. This morning the laptop hung up in the booting process and wont fully load the OS. I get to the window logo, a greyed login box, and in task bar the clock and battery icon but nothing else. No start button no search and none of the pinned programs. Setup has only one user

I cant get into safe mode with Win key + R so I cant even get far enough in to roll back to a restore point or back to Win7 and I would prefer not to have to do a clean install of Win 7, restore my image and then re-upgrade if at all possible.

I had problem prior to this such as freezing/Hanging/blue screens after waking the PC from sleep, but now it happens during idle. I hope its not my CPU or Mobo. Everything else i should be able to replace easily in time.

Performance :: OS Hang At Shutdown Screen?

Jan 11, 2016

What would cause a windows 10 OS to hang at the Shutdown screen? It just keeps spinning. My on off button won't shut the PC off. This just happened last night. I first did the Start Menut>Power>Shutdown. It took me to the Blue shutdown page and just hung there. It did not completely shut down. I tried the on/off button. That didn't work so I had to shut off the power strip to shut it off.

Installation :: Both USB And DVD Installer Hang At Initial Splash

Mar 27, 2015

yesterday I downloaded the 10041 ISO from the Windows 10 Technical Preview ISO March Update - Microsoft Windows.I installed by mounting the ISO into a VirtualBox and enjoyed having a look around. In fact I like it so much at my initial impression I decided to move into a dual boot system.

I have a 250gb SSD as my C: drive so I partitioned it and created a D: of 80GB for the Windows 10 preview.I then tried creating 2 different USB installers... one Rufus MBR for legacy BIOS... and the second using the microsoft USB/DVD installer tool. I also burnt a DVD. In all cases I used the very same ISO that I mounted sucessfully inside the VirtualBox yesterday.Each one of the 3 installers I created seemingly hangs at the initial black splash screen with the 4 blue windows in the centre. It goes no further and believe me I waited 20 minutes on one of them.

BTW.... I tried opening the ISO in WINISO and then mounting to BD ROM drive. Then selected the setup.exe and away it goes just like setting up on the VBox ... but then it get to a screen which suggests I need to install a different language pack to the one already installed, so I immediately realised this route is trying to upgrade my Win 7 which I don't want... so I aborted.

Performance :: Folder Operations Causing Explorer To Hang

Feb 10, 2016

In the last week, for one user only, folder operations, ie, create a folder, rename, or delete, take up to 30 seconds to complete. It is the same for all disk drives. I don't see anything in the event logs, but Reliability Monitor Report shows that Explorer stopped responding with the following:


The program explorer.exe version 10.0.10586.104 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

Open With Doesn't Work And Makes Windows Hang

Feb 27, 2016

For example when I try to open a .dll file nothing happens. When I right click it, the first option in bold, the default option, is open with. So when i double click that's what I should see, the open with dialogue. What happens is, the window in which the file is located just hangs no matter what i click on it. If I click anywhere outside the window it gets fixed and works normally again, but I still can't get to the open with dialogue because every time I try the same thing happens.

It's also the same if I get to it by right clicking and then selecting it, or if I go to properties to try to choose a default program.

What it feels like is that the dialogue does "open" but it's invisible and doesn't respond to me, since if i click anywhere outside the window that summoned it everything goes back to normal. I'd rather not have to reinstall windows for this.

Occasional Black Screen / Hang Which Doesn't Produce Minidumps

Aug 14, 2015

Recently i've updated my pc to Windows 10 and now it keeps crashing/hanging quite often and mostly while im in games.

Basically the "shutdown sound" plays, PC freezes, monitor goes black, keyboard and everything else switches off but apparently the pc continues working since i could hear teamspeak in the background once. Nothing else works and the only thing i can do is hard reboot. Unfortunately because of that no minidump is created and nothing is mentioned in windows event journal (except unexpected shutdown). Its almost as if PC switches off videocard and monitor and all peripherals but doesn't reboot.

I've run several hdd tests (crystal disk info, hdd tune pro, acronis disk doctor, western digital hdd tool) and 2 of those (crystal disk and hdd tune pro) showed 1 bad sector in a non system drive while the other two showed healthy/fine disks. My system is on ssd drive which is healthy according to all 4 tests.

I've also tested RAM on memtest86 and it did not found any errors in one full pass though i realise that it might take several passes to show errors. I've also run driver verifier and checked all non system drivers but again did not get any issues.

Additionally i've encountered some other issues after updating to Windows 10 which might or might not be related to the issue above:

1) Videos in media players as well as in flash/youtube sometimes stutter. This never happened before and it seems to be related to higher CPU or disk usage, even though previously videos did not stutter even under load.

2) Some software like lcdhost, logitech gaming software, aida64 behaves strangely - sometimes applications hang, sometimes they do not load, sometimes they unload. I've actually had one BSOD related to AIDA64 which produced minidump but it seems to have been fixed with the beta release.

3)Windows event journal mentions some issues with winnit and service control manager/_session1.

4)Nvidiabackend process keeps taking up to 40% of CPU power occasionally. Before updating to windows 10 i've never had that issue. Killing the process results in "nvidia geforce experience" not loading and then the process restarts anyway.

Im not sure what to do next since i've checked and tested just about anything.

Taskbar Disappearing With Use Of Browsers

Jul 29, 2015

I installed Windows 10 earlier today, and since installing it I've been having an issue, whenever I launch any browser, whether it be Chrome, Mozilla, IE, or Torch, it causes the taskbar to disappear, along with all of my desktop shortcuts, and I can no longer right click on my desktop to bring up the small menu for shortcuts/personalization.

I've already tried things like terminating the "explorer.exe" process, and restarting it, and I really don't know what else to do. It may also be other programs that cause the taskbar to disappear, such as games, but I haven't been able to test it, seeing as just launching a browser makes it disappear and I normally launch Torch as soon as I turn on my PC.

No Sound In Anything Except Browsers And Skype?

I am absolutely clueless as to what is going on, everything was working fine last night. But now nothing is playing sound except from browsers and skype. I have tried black ops 2, gta v, shadow of mordor, steam trailers for games, but to absolutely no avail. It's really starting to annoy me, as all i want to do is enjoy my Sunday afternoon. And there will always be the odd bloke that asks, I am using Razer krakens, plugged into the side of my Blackwidow. I've completely uninstalled Razer Synapse, and restarted my PC countless times.
