pc making me mad.......

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
ok, im encountering 3 problems with my pc that is irritating the heck outta me:

1. coolbits no longer works! when i go to my NVIDIA diplay properties, i get the error:

"Run a DLL as an app has encountered a problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience."

then i end up with a white box that wont go away until i restart my pc. the only time i can access it is when i uninstall the driver, reinstall it, install coolbits. once i restart again, the problem comes back!

2. i cant uninstall my old Sound Blaster Live! drivers. when i try to remove it from control panel, it just freezes. is there a program i can use to remove it? its driving me nuts.

3. stupid programs that wont close when i restart/shutdown my pc. when i go to shut down, CTLauncher (from problem 2) wont automatically close so i have to press END NOW or else it just stays at that screen.

i feel like such a noob

Easiest solution would be to back up your files and do a fresh install of windows. You can try to repair it, but you will have better success with a fresh install. You files are corrupt for whatever reason. Suppose you have had frequent crashes from windows.

try drivercleaner. Erase all your nvidia and creative drivers...that should do it.

I agree for the driver issue drivercleaner will be an aide, but the other problems he is describing are consistent with a corrupt windows directory. Try the drivercleaner first and see if that does the trick.

do you reinput coolbits into your registry? Also have you tried installing riva tuner? as that adds coolbits into your registry and has extra features

You did use driver cleaner on your nvidia drivers too right? That should fix it...if not try doing drivercleaner, and then ccleaner...to get rid of the coolbits registry entries and all...
