hungapp on all programs! please help!

by shannonigans / January 21, 2006 3:16 AM PST

I have a Gateway MX3560 Laptop. Just purchased in mid December. I have Windows XP.

I keep having problems with applications hanging. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which applications do it or when it happens.

So far, Explorer, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Control Panel, Excel, Word, and Spybot have all done this hungapp thing.

I did accidentally install Office Professional on top of an Office Home free trial, and I had to take it back to Best Buy for them to fix it, it completely crashed my entire computer. I ended up doing a complete reformat of my hard drive.

I don't know if these application hangs are related to that or not.

There are so many of them in my event viewer, but I will post the most recent one and see if anyone can see what I should do.


Hanging application IEXPLORE.EXE, version 6.0.2900.2180, hang module hungapp, version, hang address 0x00000000.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
