Windows 7: 3dmark 06: Win 7 Home Premium Crash

04 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ver 6.1 (Build 7600)
3dmark 06: Win 7 Home Premium Crash

Hello to all! Just an FYI for anyone who decides to uninstall 3dmark 06 after running it, it will cause issues, well at least in my case it did twice. i replicated my issue just to confirm. After uninstalling 3dmark 06 my task bar would freeze after a minute with a busy "blue circle" icon, all items opened and running before that time would respond normally but everything else, even task manager would not respond correctly, if respond at all. In order to have the machine run normal, besides a system restore, i would have to open something that would need a force shut down approval, like a Microsoft word document that has been modified, go through the motion of shutting down the computer, then when it asks to force shut down an item, cancel, then magically everything responds as normal. My guess is that 3dmark 06 uninstalls something during the un-installation process that doesn't sit to well with windows 7. Just wanted to share with everyone just in case you all run into the same problem.
