Running: XP SP1 with many updates, incl. WMF exploit protection
My computer has an annoying tendency on occasion to simply hang as the disk access light goes crazy, then shut down. It has been doing this for a few months, actually. The most up-to-date virus protection out there says the machine is fine... and recently I got a clue re: what might be happening.
The computer went blue screen on me, with text appearing that said there was a page fault and Windows was being shu down to protect it. The file associated with the fault was something called SVART.SYS.
The computer was in countdown mode from second #1, so there wasn't much I could get jotted down.
I've searched anti-virus threat reports, Google, and even my own system (incl. hidden files) for any information assciated with SVART.SYS. Does anyone have a clue what's going on, or what this might be about?
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?
