Debugging in Win2000Pro
Posted on 2005-05-11
I'm experiencing debugging both before a clean reinstall of Windows and after if I try to stop some programs that won't stop running. First an error pops into Task Manager followed by a "debug" notice. The computer sits and sits frozen. I can recreate this over and over stacked up all over. Only way out is just to reboot. Very inconsistent. Mostly has to do with a CD burner, but sometimes any program can freeze, I try to exit, and there she goes.
What is "debug" and how can I do anything to it? Seems I'm ask to do something, but what? I just get to thinking I know a little bit about this OS when something new pops up that I know nothing about! Debugging was a problem before reinstall of Windows and is a problem after (with the burner only as best I can recall and only here and there with that).
Wish I knew how to run diagnostics on this sucker! And without paying anything for it. I've put out too much on maintenance already!
I have very little on the hard drive right now. This would be a good time to try and figure this out. On a 24+ GB hard drive I have over 21 GB free. I can start all over at this point and not have my feelings hurt, but I must know what to fix (and how to make three partitions which was NOT offered the other day during the reinstall when I thought it would and had been told it would "ask" this of me....NOT). I may have to begin again with new question on clean install of Windows as my last venture three days ago has not "healed" all problems. I think I'm getting sick of this now. ;)
