CRASH

My pc is going crazy, I'm not able to access anything useful-knot even something like safe mode. I can play music and video, but say a browser goes crazy scrolling down non-stop as does every other program. First I thought it had something to do with web slice gallery which suddenly appeared, without me asking for it-no idea what it was, it seems to be a legit tool for browsers working on windows 10, some how my Mozilla browser picked it up whilst running on windows XP and totally fucked up my computer. I have no idea what to do as all roads seem to be blocked. Cannot safe/delete anything-even the start button is unavailable. Personally I don't believe this as is a virus attack, but a mysterious windows malfunction, no idea when I'm back on line-but I will be, meanwhile feel free to share your Idea as to a solution to this debacle.

OK, some things to try in order:

1. Unplug your mouse, wait, plug it into another USB Port (assuming its a USB Mouse).
2. Same as above but for your keyboard.
3. Try using different keyboards / mice.
4. Login as a different user (create a new account, can be done at the command line if you google if your UI is screwed).
5. Run Windows Troubleshooter if possible, follow its instructions.
6. Remove any "new" apps through the "Add/Remove Programs".
7. Try recovering to a "restore point".

Sorry to hear about the pc.

In Win10, can you right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager? Under
the Processes tab, you can right-click Explorer and click 'Restart'. If that
doesn't restore the Start button, press the Reset button on the front of the
case to restart the computer.

If 'web slice gallery' "suddenly appeared" I'd be very suspicious. I'd
remove it and do a full av scan.

Do you dual boot Win10 & XP or is XP a VM??

Ooops - Windows is just like that sometimes. Personally, I'd use Puppy - https://puppylinux.com/ - on a usb stick or sd card and use it to access remaining files. Wave goodbye to Windows, if you want.
Other helper OSs that'll run off usb sticks, SD, CD - AntiX https://antixlinux.com (or Knoppix from knoppix.org). All can be made to read your windows file system. For full install Linux, if you find you like it, I'd certainly consider MX (linked to AntiX) - https://mxlinux.org/
Good Luck and thank you for all previously posted.

Hi guys,thanks for your tips and support.As. it happens i got a linux os on usb somewhere,alas chaos tends to increase in my life and appartment(plenty of space means less need to organise)until finding stuff becomes daunting.As to thr forsy ampn and his list of options
apart from unplugging mouse/keyboard all others are impossible to reach, this issue is really bizarre as i see it's a freaky malfunction, not a deliberate attack, otherwise i would have found other like attacks, this further complicates finding a solution,and did i tell yet my modem went offline too,unable to handle the nonstop requests by an opened browser. I've been looking for another pc already, anyway it could be weeks before i'm up and running again, as currently there are other important issues in my life.
Greetingzzz, Rho

Dear Rho -

You really seem to have recurrent troubles with your computers & hard disks & internet-connections. I hope you can sort this problem out.

Take it easy, take care of your other priorities and come back whenever you feel like it; I'll be waiting.

I love your blog; it's one of the most interesting and best curated music blogs in the whole wide net.

Thanks for everything you've shared with us so far!

Best
Frank

Thanks for everything, Rho.

Kevin Lindley said...

Hi Rho,

So based on the fact that you haven't bounced back I assuming things are more serious on the computer front.

As someone who really appreciates the blog that you curate I would really like to help out, and I think many others are probably having the same thought. You have contributed so much and as someone said earlier, this is one of the best music blogs on the whole web, so I think its time for us as a community to come to your aid, its payback time folks.

So, is there anything we can do ?. If we all throw a bit of cash at this problem can we fix it? I for one would be happy to make a donation towards getting you some new hardware ...

I would so hate for "CRASH" to be the last post on Rho-Xs

Kind Regards
Kevin.

I agree with the user above me. I wouldn't mind helping with that.

Jake Sniper said...

Hi Rho,agree with Kevin in this. You have vastly expanded my musical taste (thank you) and it would bea really shame to lose this blog.

CRASH IN YOUR ASS, BYE SUCKERS LOOOOOOOL

As anyone else noticed that a simple "removed all posts in CAPITALS" script would solve a lot of the Internet's problems.

Keep working on a fix RHO, the adults are all rooting for you, and again let us know how we can help.

to the the adults who suck, the crash is on his ass & i hope he likes it ! you're in wait mothafuckaz dirty leechers

Things are improving, no more CAPITALS :-) However, you still need to work on your punctuation. If you could start you next rant with a capital letter and end it with a period that would show progress on your behalf.

Given time and some helpful criticism I think you could improve, and, who knows, one day you may be able to mix pleasantly with others in society.
