DRIVER_PNP_WATCHDOG is one of the BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) errors that pop-ups whilst installing an update. This means that during the process, the system froze and eventually went down facing the Blue Screen. Blue Screen, therefore, says that Windows is gathering additional information about the problem in order to automatically solve it. It also displays the error code at the bottom that can be used for manual search for a solution. However, Windows does not always resolve such issues, even if it does, the error will persist and appear from time to time. DRIVER_PNP_WATCHDOG may be related to multiple reasons such as driver, updates, disk and configuration issues, Thus, you will have to spend some time on testing each solution that is listed below to rectify the annoying error.
BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) errors are quite common around Windows users. Followed by a system crash, the computer fails to initiate some necessary processes that maintain the hardware state. "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" code is not an exception and appears whilst waking up your PC after sleep or hibernate mode. The error results in a BSOD crash saying that your pc has problems with drivers. Drivers themselves are very important since they establish communication between software and hardware to operate properly. This particular issue is related to either malfunctioned drivers or wrong battery configuration that cannot communicate with your hardware correctly. "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" error has been in the spotlight of many users and if you are one of those, follow the fixing guide that is mentioned down below.
AphroditeResults (AphroditeTechResults) is a type of virus that targets Macintosh users by changing browser settings. Systems infected with such a program experience a notification saying that Google Chrome has blocked an extension called AphroditeResults (or AphroditeTechResults) which tries to enable itself in order to alter the homepage and switch your search engine to "search.logicalmodule.com". Usually, people install these extensions unknowingly because of an unwanted program installed on the PC. Such symptoms are similar to browser hijackers that are meant to ostensibly improve browsing. However, they are purposely created to gather personal data (e.g. passwords, history, IP-addresses, geolocations) and deliver it to cybercriminals for revenue purposes. Furthermore, such infiltrations can display questionable ads that hover upon pages and contain malicious redirects. Removing the extension from the browser may not be enough because the program will instantly reinstall it.
Topflownews.com is a malicious domain created to trick users into allowing fake push notifications. After clicking, the page will modify some of the settings resulting in adware infection. Sometimes, you can visit such websites inadvertently due to clicking on questionable ads or links. At first glance, it is nothing more than just a simple program that generates intrusive advertisements right on the screen. However, these applications are able to record personal data such as passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations and sell it to cybercriminals. As a rule, people remain unaware of being spied by third-parties, therefore, ending up with potential identity threats. It is not that hard to remove adware-type infiltrations, however, you should get rid of them now to prevent extortionists from hijacking your data.
Rezm Ransomware is called so, because of .rezm extensions, added to affected files, modifying original extensions of various types of sensitive data. In fact, technically it is STOP Ransomware, that uses AES encryption algorithms to encrypt user's files. This suffix is one of the hundreds of different extensions used by this malware. Does it mean you lost your valuable data? Not necessarily. There are certain methods, that allow you to recover your files fully or partially. Also, there is free decryption utility called STOP Djvu Decryptor from EmsiSoft, that is constantly updated and is able to decrypt hundreds of types of this virus. The authors of the virus report that the victim’s files are encrypted and the only way to decrypt them is to buy a key and a decryptor, that is, to pay a ransom. Attackers demand $980, if the victim agrees to pay the ransom within 72 hours, then the ransom is reduced to $490. Criminals offer to decrypt one file for free and thus confirm that it is possible that the victim can return all his files. Of course, successful decryption of one file does not guarantee that after the ransom is paid in full, the victim will receive a key and a decryptor. We strongly recommend removing STOP virus, using special anti-malware programs.
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA is a common Windows issue that is typically addressed to RAM disruptions. It has been dominant on all Windows versions like 10/8.1/8 and 7. The error unfolds as a Blue Screen of Death after a system crash. The popping-up error means that the pc failed to request a page of memory which therefore hindered Windows from running correctly. Thereafter, Windows will start automatically collecting the data and fixing the issue which will, therefore, result in a reboot. Unfortunately, the automatic repairing process does not always appear successful. Instead, sometimes people cannot log into the system because the Blue screen keeps endlessly appearing while attempting to launch the PC. "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" error is often related to memory configuration hiccups or corrupted hardware prospects. However, since this type of problem has been existing and targetting most of the Windows users for a long time, we have gathered a set of most effective and testified tools that will help you eliminate this problem in the article below.
