As I've mentioned in other threads, we've installed SSDs into family laptops. Except for one that required more expertise due to disc errors initially preventing the successful clone, all worked well.
There's just one small issue affecting my older, Gateway, laptop. The strange thing is that at the time it was done, this issue did not exist so it's not like it was merely duplicated on the change from HDD to SSD. For now, it's only a small thing but I wouldn't want to see it worsen.
Everything worked so well that I actually found I spent more time on what is essentially a spare and used for downloading TV/movies for later viewing, using the excellent Internet Download Manager (IDM) installed on it.
Very occasionally, this error would pop up for first IDM use following start up. But it worked on the 2nd or 3rd go and then sat in the tray as usual, opening for next use. Only on a restart did it need that 2nd or 3rd go, so I didn't worry.
But then it happened when I tried to run a Malwarebytes scan. It just wouldn't scan. I uninstalled it and I couldn't reinstall it as that error kept popping up.
Research led me to try Malwarebytes Chameleon. That worked and it was back on. I was able to get the scan working although sometimes it was blocked, sometimes not. Nothing found. Nothing found on windows defender scans either.
I have an Adobe update that gets blocked for the same reason.
So at this point the laptop is still working very well, if you don't mind the extra 30 seconds opening IDM - but only after a restart.
I did plenty of research - various tools to install and run...but guess what. The error mostly prevents the installation and/or running of the various tools. But not always. I've run ccleaner for the registry, done various 'repair' functions, debugs, run scannow, rkill, farbar, confirmed it's not driver related....
I've tried everything I've seen in google results that doesn't make my head spin just to look at the suggestion.
So, what do do. Just carry on and accept there may be a couple of things that take 2 to 4 attempts to run, but they still do run? Remember that this laptop is just for downloading tv/movies and available as a substitute should the need arise.
Will it get worse?
I had thought to re-clone it to a spare SSD. Logic dictates that the error would be duplicated but there was no error on the original disc yet it appeared on the cloned one.
But I thought that if it did appear on the newly (second) cloned one, I could at least reset W10 and then add back any files and the IDM from the first one.
But the cloning/migration is stopped - at different stages - by presumably the same thing. So that appears to be out.
I could simply reset and reinstall/transfer anything missing - not a big deal, it's just IDM, MS Office 2007 and then stuff like Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Firefox, VLC.
Or do a fresh install and hope activation works.
But there really ought to be a solution. How does something that didn't originally exist materialise on a copy?
Should I do nothing or something and if so, what?
