Windows 7 lock-up

Recommended Posts

I just purchased the Level 20 XT case and two 200 MM Riing Plus RGB Fans (Model # CLF069-PL20SW-A), along with a controller.

The problem that I am having is when I install TT RGB PLUS Software (Version 1.2.2) Kaspersky Total Security pops up with a window stating “TT RGB Plus is attempting to receive audio stream process (PID:4248)”. No mater if I allow or block it the results are the same, it will lock up the computer. The control, alt, and delete will not work. I have to reset the computer, then I have to go into safe mode. In safe mode, the software will work. However, I uninstall it in safe mode, because if I attempt to enter into regular windows it will lock up again.


CPU: Intel I7 4770K

AIO: NZXT X52 Kracken (Cam 3.71 Software)

Motherboard: Asrock Z97 Extreme 6 (Bios 2.70f, latest)

Memory: 32 GIG of G-Skill Sniper @ XMP settings

GPU: MSI Gamers X Tripple Fan (Mystic 2 RGB Software)

PSU: Seasonic Prime Titanium 850 Watts

Keyboard: Roccat Vulcan 120 RGB (Swarm RGB Software)

Mouse: Logitech G502 RGB gaming mouse

Headset: USB Kingston Hyper X cloud 2


OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit (Service Pack 1)


All help will be appreciated.

I wanted to give an update to my problem.

1st off, I uninstalled Kaspersky Total Security and re-installed Tt RGB Plus. This did not stop windows from locking up.

2nd, I unplugged all of my USB devices with the exception of my mouse and keyboard and re-installed the software with the same results.

Upon installing the Tt RGB Plus software, I do get a setup failure notice in reference to Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable version 14.0.2415.

The notice is as follows:

0X80070666 - Another version of this product is already installed. Installation of this product, use Add/Remove Program in the control panel.

I have the following Microsoft Visual C ++ programs installed: 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2017.

One last thing. Without Tt RGB Plus not installed my fans work and the lights cycle through the RGB colors.

Installation should not being doing this, maybe something else running is conflicting.

Yes the software detects audio devices for the sound modes.

C++ is no big deal, hate how they word it failed, but its just already installed. Remove all of them and do a fresh install and try that.

Also, try an older version, see if 1.6 works for you and will go from there:

no need to do anything with the visuals just yet. I would try 1.1.6 before going down that route.


Are you getting any errors in eventviewer 


Edit: sorry overlooked where you said you tried reinstalling tt software after your uninstalled kaspersky.

It may be tedious, but I would uninstall all versions of C++ that exist in your add/remove programs menu, as it "failing" to install when installing the RGB software may have caused an issue. Then I would start with version 1.1.6 and let it install C++ as well. If that works, Then attempt installing version 1.2.2, but when it asks to install C++ say no.

Hi All,

Just wanted to inform everyone that I fixed my problem. I installed Windows 10 Pro and now TT RGB Plus works with no lock-ups. YEAH! Thank you for those that tried to help me, but I just didn't want to spend the time to resolve the problem in Windows 7. Thanks again.
