Solved I have been noticing lots of crashes on windows 7 lately

Specs: 6.0.1, 2.793 GHz / 1014 MB

Good day,

I have had quite a few people mention to me that they are experiencing multiple crashes a day using windows 7 the last week or so. I was curious if this has been going around, and if others had noticed this kind of thing with the last update. I should mention that this is a general question, as I am an xp user still. :) I am old what can I say.

I have done all the updates and I have not experienced any problems.

If Windows starts to misbehave after an update is is usually an indication that the computer was already infected with malware before the update was installed.

All update has done is close the hole the maleware was exploiting and it is the malware causing the instability because it can no longer do what it was meant to do.

Forget it - computers are not just for the young and you have already been providing useful inputs to questions on these boards.

At 35 , I was just warming up. I haven't heard anything about Win 7 problems, and I'm using it right now.

OMG - looks like I totally misread you.
I guess you are as old as you feel (I'm 150 LOL).

Nothing about Win7 has come my way either and I couldn't find anything specific to 2013 in Google. If there's a buggy MS update it might get sorted with some future update.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It was kind of limited, two or three people I know and one person on here. I wasn't sure if I needed to find my usb stick of anti malware tools for "my friend", or if it was a glitch.

I don't think it's a glitch. Run a scan.

Thanks for the suggestions, I guess I will start the malware process. I just wish she didn't live 180 miles away...

Did you ever try remote access to her machine. You can scan it from your house. Cheaper than the gas it takes to get there.

I was just doing it by phone/messageing. Not that big of a deal, I didn't consider a remote assist. I will keep it in mind.

Btw, thanks for moving this post to where it needed to be.
