XP Machine Going To Sleep During All In One Repair
« on: January 13, 2013, 12:13:28 AM »
Hi Shane with the new version 1.9.5 (and the last 1.9.4) seems to either go to sleep or hibernation, doesn't wake up with a move of thew mouse or pressing any key, i start it again with the power button.

Freezes early, when i wake it up it seems to have frozen.

Hi Shane i have kept the machine going by moving the mouse.

I am currently running the All In One 1.9.5, i started at 11.53am and is now 2.20pm and it is only got as far as RESET REGISTRY PERMISSIONS 03/03. It seems to be stuck on this.

I have aborted and will try again.

I have tried 3 times now.

Skip that repair.

What is happening is you have a regkey somewhere that is pointing back to a different key that points back to it. it is a infinite loop. So when the program goes down that set of keys it is being redirect back to the start again from that redirection.

This isnt normal for the registry to do that. But for now just skip that repair and run the others :wink:

Hi Shane, i did what you suggested and it ran great, took about 1.5 hours to run, normally takes about 3 hours. It sounds like this is the hold up when i run the Repair.

Is there something i can possibly do to fix this?

Thanks again

If there was a way to find out what key is pointing back to the root we could.

This is called symbolic links.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link

We find which key has the symbolic link causing the problem then we can remove that link so the infinite loop stops.

Hi Shane the CCleaner Registry Cleaner, computer soo slow, and it came up with Framework 1 as alot of errors, deleted these (like a idot, i could of sent a screen shot, if it had helped). If you like i can do a system restore and catch these again?

Strange some of the XP updates had Framework.

Thanks again

What I need is to find a tool that list the symbolic links on a system. Then I could have those spots be skipped in the permissions repair :-)

Hi Shane is it ok to back to the older versions 1.9.4 or 1.9.3, the XP computer isn't happy.

I tried to save a Word document a error saying couldn’t save due to a file permission error popped up. I retried and it worked again, but ocassionally it still does it.

I have attached a CCleaner (the registry) portion if this helps?

Thanks again

That sounds like it may be your Antivirus scanning the file before it lets you save it. I have had it happen on a few customers computers. If you disable the antivirus do you still have the error?

Hi Shane thank you.

1. I have just run the updated version (1.9.6) through the XP machine and it made it past the permissions problem (earlier in this thread), although later it went ibto standby, so i pushed the power button and the program continued with no problems.

2. When the saving error permission happened again after that post i retried and it saved ok, haven't had a problem since.

3. Is it ok to run the 1.9.6 version through on the Vista machine as you have fixed the pending Windows update problem?

4. Once again (excellent) running the Repair through the XP machine has made it faster and smoother, though the repair doesn't normally do this.

Thanks again

Thanks again

Hi Shane just updated to 1.9.7 and run on the XP machine.

1. It went into hibernation (i think) i had to press the power button to continue and the program kept on going but took alot longer than normal to run (about 6 hours)

2. When i ran the 1.9.6 version it seem  run through ok.

3. Is it ok now to run the 1.9.7 through the Vista machine with the Windows Updates problems i was having. I didn't run the Windows Updates on 1.9.6 and seem to be ok.

Thanks in advance

The program doesnt keep the system from going to sleep. I should see if I can find a way to disable sleep while the program is running :-) Also what repair took so long?

I dont know since I couldnt replicate the problem here with vista. So if you plan on running it on Vista just make sure to do a backup first so you can resotre it if anything happens :-)

Thanks Shane

With the XP machine going into Hibernation i did a system restore and re-run it and it went through with no probelsm and took 1.5 hours instead of 6 hours.

With the Vista and windows updates i can't get into system restore even safe mode when it happens.

Thanks again

1.5 hours is still a long time, but if it is a slower machine it can take longer. Which repair seems to take the longest? The log file will show how long each one takes if you post it :-)

Now that is odd, anything that has to do with registering files is VERY slow

Quote
Register System Files
   Start (26/07/2012 11:58:21 a.m.)
   Done (26/07/2012 12:26:56 p.m.)

Repair WMI
   Start (26/07/2012 12:27:07 p.m.)
   Done (26/07/2012 1:04:37 p.m.)

Those should go rather fast and only use the Windows built in regsvr32. So it is Windows itself taking so long. Never seen it take that long before.

Hi Shane

I ran the repair through again without doing a system restore.

I have attached the log file which with those that you displayed ran a bit faster by approx 10 minutes but the overall took a bit longer.

Also the computer didn't go into hibernation.

I still plan on adding some code in the next version to keep the system from going to sleep :-)
