We see no info about this computer

but I have to ask if these OS's are some hack from a Torrent site ?
It seems like we here in the forums should know this up front so as not to drag this out and waste time.

The comment about waste

A member dragged on and on but in the end it was revealed it was a cracked copy. Another went on and on but they were a torrent user which everyone knows is a great way to corrupt and infect PCs today. Both members wasted time by not being upfront with details like that.

NOW at first glance the usual causes of a clean machine corrupting windows are:
1. Unexpected power removals.
2. Malware or such. Fixes are sometimes ineffective but do try Grif's scans noted at:

3. A machine with other hardware issues. But here I don't see enough to call that out.

Re: pup

A potentially unwanted program is a program that you maybe not want. But since it's a new term in this thread, I wonder where it comes from.

If safe mode doesn't work also, the things you can do in general are:
- system restore in command prompt
- go back to your latest working image
- refresh or reset Windows 8 from the install disk
Refresh makes it out of the box again, so it should work.

The 1st time I saw PUPs mentioned was in MalwareBytes.

That's been some years ago. That's always been what MBAM has called them. Most PUPs aren't harmful, but some are, and I've never had a problem removing them all. If you remove them with MalwareBytes, you can always bring it back up and reinstate one or more of them if need be. MalwareBytes is a great tool to keep in your kit, and the free version is all I've ever needed.

Possible Hardware Failure Problem(s)

Hello,
With just the info you have posted and my past problems that come close to what you are having, I have found that either you have a hard drive or a memory stick ( ram ) that is having problems.. as in failing / gone bad. The last computer that I had the same problem as you are describing was a laptop. After running scan disk in windows ( scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors test ) RIGHT after a fresh reload of windows 7 home I mean as soon as it is finished and restarted...which tested good and the memory test in the Bios which tested bad for 1 ram stick. When I replaced the pair ( not just 1 stick ) and reloaded the system all worked perfect. I have also had this problem on desktops. Check your hard drive with scan disk like above and the ram in the system Bios, I am pretty sure one of the two is faulty. If you can't run the tests ( because of system freezing or automatic restarting on it's own or Bios does not have the test ) you may need to remove the hard drive and ram sticks and take them to a service shop for testing or the whole tower or laptop. Hope this helps, Good luck
