WindowsRepair all in one
« on: August 16, 2015, 08:10:51 AM »
Hi,
Presently using Windows 7 on an older laptop.  It has been running 3 + hours and seems to be "stuck" on repair number 8 with the cpu at 54%.

It is running hot and I would like to shut it down to cool off.  Is there or can there be a pause button in the operation? If I hit stop is all lost?


Thanks,

Ed

- Does Windows Repair say for how long it was stuck in #8 ? #8 should take about 30 to 45 seconds MAX. Post a screenshot.
- Did run the program in Safe Mode with networking ?
- Just abort the program, close as many programs as possible, rerun the program and skip any repairs that causes troubles. Then try to run all repairs again.

Yes in safe mode with networking and now it is at 12 hours 30 minutes.

I don't know how to take a screen shot in safe mode.  I will abort and restart.

As soon as I hit function key and prt screen it said done and rapidly did 9 and 10.

I don't think it was a coincidence.

I just restarted again. I think it hung up and then just released itself.

did you ever open the program again during the repairs ? and if you did. did you close it?
reason is in safe mode the repair program makes a service and when you close the program it will kill the service so if you had two processes of the program open and you closed one the service will kill and windows repair will halt I actually learned that last night... I say just close the program and start the repair section over you can start from repair 8 just uncheck all the ones it already completed you should be okay.  :wink:

Actually this wasnt my program it was cmd.exe itself. I had the same thing happen and as soon as I hit enter inside the cmd.exe window it continued. This was because Quick Edit mode was enabled for the cmd.exe window. So when you click in the it pauses and stays paused until you click enter or some other key.

So if a user clicked it and didnt realize it then it would appear frozen. So in the new v3.4.2 I put in some code to write to the registry to turn quick edit off for cmd.exe and I am hoping that will keep this from happening :-)
