    Hi guys, My dell studio xps running windows 7 has started acting like it's working overtime and the blue wheel keeps spinning. I searched the forums here and notice you would like the event log errors. I did that and found many warning and a couple errors. the most prevelant error is event 33 sidebyside then there are a few for 1000 application error. and 4103 windows backup and a 8194 vss Thjere are several warnings as well. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Giving us the actual logs would really help ;)

    Right-click every category (application, security, installation, system, transferred events) and save as. Attach the logs here :)

    Running any backup software?

    You seem to have a lot of event IDs 12348 related to the Volume Shadow Copy service, which doesn't have access to the root of the drive you're either trying to backup or the drive you're saving your backup on.

    See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd364979(v=ws.10).aspx

    Also, you have a lot of Application Virtualization Client errors, in order to see what causes them, could you attach the file sftlog.txt located in

    Hope we get that sorted out for you :)

    Thats an interesting log. I searched vss and I found a lot Visio program files.. I backed everything up on an external drive while I was at it. Machine seems to work fine but if you find something.... The blue wheel of fun has not been spinning. :)
