Hi Readen Astorys,

Method 1
Step 1:
I suggest to start the computer in safe mode and check if the problem persists.

Startup options (including safe mode)

Step 2: If the problem is solved in safe mode, then I suggest you perform the clean boot and remove the program that is causing the problem.

Note: Follow step 7 clean boot KB929135 article to reset the computer in normal mode.

Method 2
I also suggest to run virus scan online by using the Microsoft safety scanner.

  • Windows has encountered a critical error and close in one minute

    Whenever I have reconnected my network cable, I get the error message "Windows has encountered a critical error and will close automatically in a minute. Please save your work"and another message,"Services and controller app has stopped working ".

    The computer is running in offline mode and in safe mode, but the lack of internet access is a little pain!   I am currently using another computer to look for solutions.

    I tried the system restore, but when it restarts, it says that it is not successful.

    I had a problem with the AV Security Suite fake Scam three days now, this problem has been fixed, but the AVSS stuff has been removed, but this problem comes from the time.

    Is it better to just to do the restore to factory settings option? It's extremely frustrating!

    Thanks for any help/advice anyone can give.


    Thank you.    I had a CD of "Install Drivers on my computer" Dell.  When I put that in, it listed the available drivers and I extracted the files on the network card driver and it reinstalled a new network adapter driver.   Have had no problems since last night when I did, so all it seems has (finally) been resolved.

    For me, the return of the AV SEcurity Suite malware download problem.  This has been the most problematic bug I encountered.    At the end of the day, a clean installation of Windows Vista seems to have solved this, and reinstalling the driver for the network card.   I have not elsewhere found the Web to REaltek site it useful as the link does not work (it says I don't have permission to access the download). When I contacted their support, they pretty much told me to do what it says on its Web site and, of course, it did not work.  It made me hunt for this driver CD.

    It makes me happy, I had these original discs of installation provided with your computer, saved me a lot of £s!

  • Wireless problem Post Infection - Windows has encountered a critical error and close in one minute.

    Hello

    I recently had my computer infected by the virus of the Ant-malware Doctor and I believe that it has been completely removed now. However, I think that one of its components attached to a driver of key computer or something and when I removed it I accidentally deleted this essential engine with it. So I can not access the internet for more than a minute. If I turn on the wireless, I connect but immediately the computer says: 'Windows has encountered a critical error and ends in a minute' and 'Service and controller app has stopped working and was closed ". I checked also further in my error reports and think that it may also have something to with THE COUNTER Service? It is difficult to correct the situation when I can't access internet from my computer, but I can use another computer and transfer the files needed to repair the damage. Also I have a product Id, but as Im not using my own computer (to which the Id is attached), I can't access to professional advice. But if someone here can help I would be very grateful. IM thinking of uninstalling Service Packs and reinstall them but I'm not a computer expert. Thank you in advance.

    Updated after you have everything installed Norton Internet Security on my laptop the scans detected some trojan infectios and I'm checking for more information and to remove all the. Also, when I've updated my Norton Internet updates no warning sign came on a mistake criticism or service and controller app. It seems that viruses are to blame for the problem and despite the using various anti-virus software and scan many times before Norton virus remained unchanged. It's possible lack of virus definitions updated authorized to do this as the internet connection difficulties made difficult to download updates lasted. Thank you, and if the problem doesn't go away, I'll re-post say.

    Applications, (Norton and McAfee) are notorious for not not upgrade (or uninstalling) itself. (No, Symantec Support never say this.) See if the following solves your problems:

    1. download the Norton Removal Tool, save it to your desktop: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

    2. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the taskbar).

    3. After completing some you have a copy of your handy product key, uninstall all Norton software (including LiveUpdate and everything Norton Add ons) via Control Panel | Programs | Uninstall a program (or Control Panel |) Programs and features, if you are using the classic view).

    4 IMPORTANT! -Online activate Windows Firewall immediately after the restart.

    NB: Now you're "working without a net": no to ANYTHING else online (e.g., navigation, reading e-mail, chat) until you have completed step #7 below!

    5. right click on the file that you saved in step #1 above, and then select run as administrator.  DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.

    6. do a clean install of the 2010 version of your Norton application, using your product ID & reboot: http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080514162318EN

    TIP: Do not activate or install additional modules of Norton (for example, Norton Anti-Phishing) immediately.

    7. manually and repeatedly run LiveUpdate until you get a prompt "no update more".

    8 test cycle.

    NB: Your Norton application can disable Windows Defender by default.
