Windows 7: "GFXui.exe has stopped working"

16 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
"GFXui.exe has stopped working"

Hello Seven Forum!
I for my english mistakes it quite rusty...

Yesterday I wrote zeros on my 500GB HD to install a new OS (Windows 7 Ultimate X64), the installation was ok and ive installed all microsoft latest updates.
somehow every time i restart windows i get the message "GFXui.exe has stopped working", im going on with clicking on "close program" - sometimes the windows continue working and sometimes i get a bsod error .
I googled it and found that it might be the .NET and the C++ which coming with microsoft - ive downloaded "Aaron Stebner's removal tool" for the .Net framework and installed it all over again, ive also uninstalled the c++ and reinstalled the 2008 version and i still get the error message.
I also tried to download the latest driver for my (onboard) video card (which is the same as i downloaded with the windows updates) and the error has not disappeared.
When starting windows at safe mode there is no message.

my hardware is:
Gigabyte G41-combo Chipset
4GB DDR3 Kingston
Intel Core2Duo E6700

Best Regards, and sirry for my poor english,

Are you able to uninstall your video device in Device Manager?
If so, does the driver automatically reinstall when you reboot?
Are there any error messages?

So, you're not getting the error anymore?
If you are, then next thing that I'd try would be removing ALL of the .NET stuff - starting with .NET v4 and proceeding down to .NET v1.

Once all are uninstalled, reboot and install all versions of .NET - starting w/v1 and working your way up.
