Preferred Solution: Updated computer and things aren't right

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi There,

I have a PC. The computer is not operating like it used to. Wierd things are happening.

The following things (are wierd):

- sometimes (not always) it operates slowly,
- can't update Windows Updates (last time the computer was successfful was October 2010).
- opening files (like Word or Excel) by clicking attachments from e-mail files don't work (e-mail program is MS Outlook).
- I sometimes (again, not always) get a message about Tweeter Monkey not loading (not sure of the name but it is something "monkey").

There are at times other weird things too.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Freely

Hello,this can ne a few things, but many canbe malware related first so let's run a couple tools. You did not give your operating system so I will start with what we can run now.Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking How to enter safe mode(XP/Vista)Using the F8 MethodRestart your computer. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu. Select the option for Safe Mode with Networking using the arrow keys. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode. >>>> Download this file and doubleclick on it to run it. Allow the information to be merged with the registry.RKill....Download and Run RKillPlease download RKill by Grinler from one of the 4 links below and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
Link 4

Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)
A black screen will appear and then disappear. Please do not worry, that is normal. This means that the tool has been successfully executed.
If nothing happens or if the tool does not run, please let me know in your next replyDo not reboot your computer after running rkill as the malware programs will start again. Or if rebooting is required run it again.If you continue having problems running rkill.com, you can download iExplore.exe or eXplorer.exe, which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead.Next run Superantisypware (SAS): Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home UsersDouble-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.Click the Scanning Control tab.Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):Close browsers before scanning.Scan for tracking cookies.Terminate memory threats before quarantining.Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.Back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete".

I recently formatted my hard drive and was in the process of setting up my burner, wireless, and web cam when I got a message saying that they cannot be set up because I needed SP2 or higher.
I went to microsoft/windows and did the download and install. After restarted my PC I can only get 4 bit color and screen resolution can't be set any higher than 600x800.
I did a virus scan and avg found nothing.
Any suggestions?
 

A:Things just aren't right after installing SP2

What are your system specs? Are you running XP? If you are, and only running XP SP1, you are way behind the times... You will have to do a fresh Operating System install all the way to XP Service Pack 3

A:Things just aren't adding up..

The P2P programs you have installed expose you to risks because of the nature of the P2P file sharing process. File sharing/P2P programs rely on members giving and gaining unrestricted access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft. It also exposes you to very malicious worms and trojans. You change those risky default settings to a safer configuration but the act of downloading files from an anonymous source greatly increases your exposure to infection.

I suggest you go to add/remove programs and remove all P2P programs!
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application. Beware it is NOT supported for use in 9x or ME and probably will not install in those systems

Ugrading Java:

Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 update 3.
Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
Click the "Download" button to the right.
Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
The page will refresh.
Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
Go to Start > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java version.
Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

things like videos and games aren't going good...they are kinda choppy. i'm using beta 100.59 of the forceware for vista (i hate it, nothing to do.) games go half what they did in xp, idk if its the drivers or what, or if its dx10 thats making these problems. if it is, can i downgrade to dx9?

A:things aren't going good in vista...

how about useing the none beta vista video drivers? i know nvidia has some. and since you don't have a dx10 vid card, you aren't running dx10, but the hightest your card supports, which should be dx9c. i think setting the game settings lower than you have them at will improve proformance. remember, vista is more of a resorce hog than xp, and the games are not written for vista, but to run well in xp. and because of that, imho, your cpu and ram are alittle on the light side. but what is your vista experience rating (remember that 5.9 is the max. i bet its around 3)?

also, are you using the 32bit or 64bit version of vista? even with a 64bit cpu, the 32bit version is going to run alot better than the 64bit version.

 If this happened to me, I'd restore from my last good full system backup.  If you don't have one, I'd consider this a learning experience.  Then save any data you don't want to lose, and try System Restore.  If that doesn't help,
restore your system to factory settings, and reload your software.
 
 Good luck.

To combat some missing icons (specifically, MSI Afterburner) I adjusted the system DPI to 125% then back to 100%. Most everything went back to normal, except two things:

1. Firefox's menu and toolbar font size
2. System message font size

Restarting does nothing. I tried changing to 150% then back to see if that'd work, but now it's even smaller! Programs seem fine, I tested Word and Skyrim. 1920x1080 res if it matters.

How do I fix those issues?

Thanks in advance, and sorry if this has been covered. I couldn't find any relevant threads, but I might be searching the wrong terms.

EDIT: Looks like the menus for Media Player Classic are tiny, too.

A:Adjusted system DPI, now certain things aren't scaling back right?

Ok, don't know why I didn't try this before, but the settings are tied to the current theme, so switching it fixes the problem.

Just wondering. I am in the process of getting a computer for a friend back up and running and was wanting to load it up with the essentials for security, and the "General Security Information" thread hasn't been updated in a while. Does anybody have specific programs that they would recommend? Also, the Jason's Toolbox link no longer provides a security test, is there another one?

Hello I have a Toshiba satellite running windows home premium bit For Detects Headphones There Computer Aren't That quite a while I've had an issue where my sound would randomly cut out I recently discovered after much trial and error that the cause of the issue is that my computer is detecting something plugged into the headphone jack when nothing is there I very rarely use my headphones so this took a while to figure out but when I plug them in Computer Detects Headphones That Aren't There after the speakers cut out I can still hear everything playing in the headphones Sometimes when I remove the headphones the sound starts playing the speakers again but not always I've checked to see if there is anything blocking the jack and it's clean What I would like to know is if there is a way to prevent my computer from automatically switching to headphones if it detects something plugged into the jack or if there isn't a way to play audio out of both simultaneously I could just keep using my headphones but they are of rather low quality and my laptop's built in speakers sound much better Right clicking quot Playback devices quot only shows my speakers and doesn't show my headphones which are really nothing more than earbuds but still even when quot show disabled devices quot is selected

A:Computer Detects Headphones That Aren't There

There would appear to be a problem with the headphone jack. Along with the contacts for your headphones, there are (can be) extra contacts for when there are no headphones plugged in. I would suspect those connections are "dirty" and not making proper contact.

Plug your headset in and out fast several times and see if that helps. If not, the jack may be cleaned with contact cleaner but that would be an internal job and not something you could do from the outside of the case. If it can't be cleaned, many PC's have a small "daughter board" that contains the I/O jacks and that is replaceable.

On SOME audio systems, there is a control panel and SOME of these have options for whether the speakers are muted or not when a headset is plugged in. Newer systems with RealTek audio have the RealTek HD Audio manager that in most cases has this. The Panel, if you have it, would be located in Control Panel/Hardware and Sound. However, you are limited to what the PC vendor allows and there are some with RealTek, for example, that do not have this option.

Problem - I click on the START icon, the go to the GAMES, the only one that works properly is Chess Titans. None of the others (like Mah Jong, Minesweeper, Hearts, Solitaire) run properly. When I try to play, it looks like they are starting, then a pop-up message appears (see attached screenshot as an example). It doesn't give any solution to this problem despite what the message says. Why the chess game works and none of the others is mystifying. I am no computer wiz and would like to know how to fix this, if it is fixable. Thanks.

If that doesn't work then you'll need to take other steps, so post back and someone will help

Hey so the story is, it was time for an upgrade and I got a barebundle package from Novatech. I installed windows 7 on a brand new hard drive and then afterwards I plugged in my 2 old sata hard drives which were bought at Novatech and when they came with that computer like 3 or 4 years ago they came as two 250gig hard drives merged together.

They are showing up in my computer like this:


Then I googled the problem and I came to this forum and somebody had a similar but not the same problem, I thought to cut time I'd show you what my Disk Management looks like:


Does anybody know how I can access those two merged hard drives? Would be so amazing seeing as I have years of photography, games and work on them

A:New computer and my old hard drives aren't showing up.

Bootup using a live linux distro and check if the data in the hard drives shows up or not. If it does then it is an issue with windows 7, else probably the sectors are corrupt which means there is no possible bay (except opening the hard disk and using a magnetic data reader), which means you have to format your hard disk.

Hey guys,

Just a bit of backstory - I bought a Logitech webcam, which requires SP2. Due to certain circumstances *cough* I cannot acquire SP2. I popped the install disc in anyway, but a box just popped up saying I needed SP2 to continue. That was the end of that, and I returned the webcam.

So I got home... speakers weren't working. dxdiag doesn't recognise a sound card at all. I went into device manager, and all the sound drivers had !'s next to them. I uninstalled them all and reinstalled the Realtek '97 drivers, then restarted, but it was exactly the same.

I uninstalled the drivers again, the just rebooted. This time it had some !'d stuff about Microsoft Kernel (still under sound).

I'm 95% sure that the Realtek drivers are the right ones.

What do I do ;_;

Previously, we could get the sound to work on our Bose speakers for our computer but no sound would come from the TV when we connected it to the PC with and HDMI cable. But now overnight, it's swapped; we can now get sound on the TV when we're using the HDMI cable but no sound is coming through on the speakers when we just want to watch/listen to thing on the PC. 
 
Any ideas are suggestions are REALLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!

A:Updated computer using Samsung SW Update and computer became unbelievably slow

Hi there.
 
It seems clear that the update did not have a positive effect on the laptop and it is causing the instability.
 
Have you tried to revert those updates, or rather, are you able to do so, since it is difficult for you to work with the laptop?

Hi, I'm getting hopelessly confused by the fact that I have changed my password online (Microsoft Account) but now when I log in on my PC it says wrong password and won't log me in automatically.
I have tried the tutorial here but it throws me off after I fill in the new password. Besides this is the wrong window to change the stored password for my PC.

I also found another window where I thought I had changed the stored password but it didn't work.

A:iTunes is updated wont connect to iPhone til updated

it might be a case of going through the motions. click checking for the itunes update to resolve it.. "Check for updates" its going to say iTunes isnt up to date. but Download iTunes from Apple and see if everything syncs ok

beyond this, even a new phone will respond to updates or the latest upgrades. latest imo was el capitain on the Mac app store.

Last night I set my computer to defragment my hard drive, forgetting that earlier that day I had enabled automatic updates due to a university policy that forces you to enable automatic updates to access the internet. Needless to say, my computer rebooted to update in the middle of defragmentation. Everything seems to be in working order so far, but is there any precaution I should be taking before attempting to defragment again, such as checking for any disk errors? If so, how would I do that? And of course I'll disable automatic updates this time. The program I was using for defragmenting was Defraggler, if that helps at all. Thank you.

A:Computer updated during defrag, what to do next?

Yours sounds like a standalone computer. On those I never enable any auto updating except Anti Virus software. Programs like various Adobe I allow to auto download but manually choose when to install. Enabling auto updates of any software they are also so unaware of what else is running for programs or other updaters. And many require restart to install. If you manually run Ms updates at least once a month you should be fine. Ms updates are every Tuesday with the largest block to come out 2nd Tuesday each month.
If you want to completely check your HDD files because defraggler was interrupted you can run CHKDSK /r on your C: drive or any other partitions you have. Very time consuming but it is thorough.
It is common for colleges to have these policies. So run Ms updates before you connect to college internet. If you run Ms updates every Wednesday before connecting to the college you should be ok.

Hello,

After installing Windows 8, I decided that I wanted to change my computer name. I followed the instructions online and changed it through Advanced System Settings. However, the old computer name keeps on showing up in Devices under Devices and Printers. I have looked at other posts in this forum

Computer name in devices and printers

and my

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName

shows up the correct name. After searching through the Registry Editor, I have found that the following entry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\AllUserInstallAgent\S-1-5-21-699933474-1405474040-4259847413-1001

is keeping the old computer name. What shall I do?

I am running Windows 8 OEM on a MacBook Pro Retina Display running Bootcamp. All updates have been installed. Symantec and Dropbox are the only software that I have installed in Windows.

Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

A:Change of Computer Name not being updated in Devices

Well, for some reason, after about 5 or 6 reboots --due to the fact that I was switching back and forth between the Windows and OS partitions-- the change of name actually happened. The old computer name still appears in the above mentioned Registry Editor entry but the computer appears with its new name in Devices under Devices and Printers. So, issue solved, I guess.

I've been look around on the Internet but haven't found a solution. win repair says root cause is error code 0x490, but the solutions I've found didn't help(set disk to active and fix bootmgr).

DISKPART says that my disk isn't boot disk and that it can't find a windows installation.

I'm very good with computers but this is too complicated for me. I know how to use the prompt but I'm not too familiar with these advanced commands(diskpart and bootrec to name a few).

I'm also very reluctant to install windows from scratch. I believe this should be able to be fixed with out reformatting.

please, do you have any suggestions on what to do?

regards,
Marcus

A:updated to latest gpu drivers. now computer won't boot

btw, I'm able to get to the console via boot disk and windows built in repair. my system disk is found and marked as "healthy", but that's it.

well, its been about 2 years since I posted on here, my last problem was with my bios, thanks again for helping me solve that! So I just got a new prescott P4 3.0 Ghz with 1mb L2 chache and installed it and when I push the power button it cuts on for about a second then cuts off, so I cut off the power supply then cut it back on and then it just wouldnt load anything, not even the bios, so I popped back in the old Northwood P4 2.4 Ghz 512 kb cache processor and it works fine, any suggestions? my Mobo is a Intel Rock Lake D865PERL.

Thanks
 

A:Updated procssor and now computer wont start

Does your machine just shut down after that seconds? In that case check if your heatsink is placed correctly and generally for heat problems for a start.

Or it remains running but does nothing? In that case check if your power supply unit is powerfull enough for your machine and if your 4pin PSU adapter is connected to your mobo.

The worst case scenario is CPU/mobo incompatibility. Is this CPU supported by your mobo? Check their website for a list of compatible CPUs and if your CPU is in the list check if it requires any certain BIOS update for full compatibility.

Hope this helps...!

A:Computer Freezes, No viruses, recently updated

coud be a heat problem.

you said that he installed a new drive - check that it has been installed correctly and is not in contact with any other components...

if the PC was made quieter - then maybe he took out a system fan or something?

if he builds computers, then why dont you ask him to take a look ?!

keeps popping up with a blue screen that says these are what is wrong with my computer how can I fix it

A:Computer tells me there is 2 things wrong with my computer

Toward the top of the blue screen error message it should say STOP: 0x0xxxxxx

Tell us what the STOP error message code is.

You can also try removing all external devices. Have you installed any new ones?

How long does the computer operate before the message kicks in?

You can try running a chkdsk from a command prompt to see if its corrupted files causing it.

Click on the start button, type cmd, click on cmd.exe when it pops up in the box.

now type chkdsk /f /r. If it doesnt accept it type just chkdsk /r

It will ask if you want to dismount, type y

it will tell you it has to run at next restart, close the command prompt and restart computer. It will run through the chkdsk and report back when done. Sometimes it just restarts and comes back to the desktop.

You should also download and run Malwarebytes from malwarebytes.org. Make sure to update it and just do a quick scan first. If theres a high level of infections you may need to do more clearing out.

Start with all that and report back

When into trying systems. the BIOS. boot to Now computer Updated operating is old I built this computer back in the dark ages of I set it up to dual-boot Vista and XP Every time I powered on I'd get a prompt to boot into Vista or older version of Windows meaning XP I'd pick one and go on my merry way In I formatted the Vista drive installed Windows and deleted the XP install since I had XP mode in if I needed compatibility No more dual-boot prompt I had no issues until last Updated BIOS. Now the computer is trying to boot into old operating systems. night when I went shopping for a new hard drive My motherboard a Gigabyte GA-P -DS L was running an old BIOS that has problems with drives of Updated BIOS. Now the computer is trying to boot into old operating systems. TB or more So in order to be Updated BIOS. Now the computer is trying to boot into old operating systems. sure I could use the drive I'm buying I updated the BIOS to the latest revisiion using Gigabyte's BIOS utility to do it in-OS rather than through the boot menu When I rebooted the system POSTed fine But instead of booting Windows it gave me the old choice between Vista or the older version of Windows - despite neither of those operating systems being present If I tell the boot manager to do anything it spits out an error since it can't find any OS files it recognizes The BIOS itself seems to be fine - I'm writing this on the affected computer running Ubuntu with a Live CD I can see all the hard drives open files etc I just don't know how to get the boot manager pointed at Windows again Help

A:Updated BIOS. Now the computer is trying to boot into old operating systems.

Since you built this computer I'm guessing that you have the installation disc for Windows 7?
 
I'm also going to guess that you have all of your important data backed up for the installation of Windows 7.
 
What I would suggest would be to wipe the hdd which has the operating system on it with an application like Darik's Boot and Nuke and then do a fresh installation.  By wiping the hdd you will have a clean slate to start from.

Hello All,

I just updated my version of Firefox this morning to version 3.6.14,
and, after the update, Firefox highly recommended to update my version of Flash as well. I updated it to Flash version 10.2.152.32, and, now, when I try to play a video on Youtube for example that uses flash, windows completely freezes, screen goes black and I have to do a hard-reboot.

I am running Windows XP Professional.

Any help is deeply appreciated!

Thank you!

A:[SOLVED] Updated Firefox 3.6.14 & Flash 10.2.152.32 BUT NOW Computer Freezes on any F

Have you got an ATI or nvidia card? I know recent ATI drivers have caused problems with Flash videos, not sure about nvidia though.

Make sure you've got the latest graphics driver installed. Also, right-click the youtube video, select Settings and disable hardware acceleration, then refresh the page before playing.

Have you got SP3 installed for XP, and all critical MS updates?

Hi,
I updated from Vista 64 to Windows 7 64 on a Dell Studio XPS (Intel®i7 CPU, Ram 8.0 a couple of days ago.  I had a number of blue screens that were from the Nvidia GeForce driver needing to be updated.  I got the update to 335.23, but it still crashes.  I am also getting a lot of unexpected windows shutdowns...like about every 10 minutes.  I ran the Windows 7 compatibility program before updating from Vista, and it said everything on my machine was compatible.  I also did a clean install of Windows 7.  I am not that great at fixing problems, and maybe I should have had someone else install the new program, but alas, I didn't.  Can you guys help?  I'd be so greatful!
Thanks so much!

Hi all, I just reformatted my laptop recently because of a virus. I downloaded a bunch of drivers for this laptop from the official Sony website. Everything was working until yesterday when I decided to download a bios update. I updated from r2080h4 to r2087h4.. Now my laptop is unusable. It loads up extremely slow and everything is in slow motion so I can't do anything. I want to reset my bios version and I've tried to reset to default in the bios menu but it stays on the new version.. Any tips?

A:updated bios is Sony VAIO vpcse13fx.. slow computer

Download the previous version and install it.
One can also flash the BIOS via external media (CD/DVD, USB Flash Drive, SD card) by DOS and here. <--- Just a jump -off point.

A:Updated Hard Drive to a Terabyte and now computer running slow

you have 6gb of ram installed, but you are using windows 32bit.. that could be one reason you running slow, as windows 32bit will only show 4gbs of ram.. you need windows 64bit to have windows use and show all your ram... swapping hard drives should not slow your system down... was it a brand new hard drive or a used one??

Before I begin, I'd like to say that my computer, or virus, or person, does all of what I'm about to say simultaneously...
I haven't actually timed it, but but every 20 minutes or so (?) my computers cursor moves sporadically in a very confined area where the mouse is currently parked. While this is happening if my text cursor happens to be in a box I can actually type in, something will instantaneously pop up... things like.... "COMPUTERS HAVE FEELINGS TOO", "I AM WATCHING YOU", "3.14159265359" "(Random binary language that I didn't bother to copy and paste)", "I KNOW ALL YOUR PASSWORDS". Along with all this it always turns on caps lock.
I've scanned with ESET Nod32 and Malware Bytes. I'm not sure where to go from here.

Re Defrag - Are you closing down all other apps before running Defrag. It sounds like you have something still running, thats causing this Driver message.

Its been suggested here before that booting into Safe Mode and then running Defrag is the best way of avoiding the above problem.

Hi
My computer has recently started doing very odd things. It's slowed right down and I'm also having problems getting onto secure sites on the internet (hotmail, internet banking, Amazon etc). I haven't changed any of my security settings. The problem seemed to start after I received an email from a friend containing an embedded photo but that could just be a coincidence! Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.
 

A:Computer doing very odd things!

There are a couple of things you can try. Online AV scans, spyware removers, trojan scans. What I suggest is, rather than shotgunning for the problem, run a HiJackThis scan and post it here in a reply. That will provide information that may allow specific identification of the root of the problem. To do so follow these steps:

First, create a folder in C:\Program Files and label it HiJackThis. This is where you will download the executable file. This is also the folder where your HJT backups will be stored.

Click Here to download the HiJackThis.exe file.

Close all windows, including this and any other browser windows. Launch HJT and click the Scan button. When the scan is finished, the Scan button will have changed to Save Log. Click that and save the log to your HJT folder. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING YET. Most of the listed items are harmless or even essential. Wait for recommendations from someone trained in HJT log file interpretation.

In the saved log file window... In the toolbar at the top of the window under Edit, select Select All. Copy (Ctrl+C) the text and paste (Ctrl+V) it into a reply in this thread.

A:My Computer Is Doing Things On Its Own

Hello yeo and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.Let's try a different scanner and see what it shows us.Download WinPFind2.zip and unzip it to your Desktop. It will create a folder named WinPFind2. Do NOT run the program directly from the zip file.Open the WinPFind2 folder and double-click on winpfind2.exe to start the program.In the File Options area click the Select All buttonIn the AddOn-Options box click the checkboxes forBotCheck_Subs.defHKCU_IEDesktop.defJobs.defPolicies.defto select them.Now click the Run All Scans button on the toolbar.When the scans are complete click the Simple Report button in the lower right-hand corner to create a report file. Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.Use the Add Reply button to post the information back here and I will review it when it comes in. Note: After posting check to make sure the entire report fit into the post. If it is too long and did not all fit make a second post with the remaining information.Cheers.OT

I am running WinXP Home Edition, Defender Pro AV. Here's the problem. It's like the Start button gets clicked. Solitaire game pops up by itself, the box pops up like if you right click. IE will shut down by itself. Other things will come up as if they were clicked. This even happens if it's not connected to the internet. What are some of the possibilities that could be wrong?

I am having a strange problem with my computer. I have a Dell Vostro running XP Pro, with Atvast free antivirus. My brower is explorer 8

The computer will minimize windows by itself, type b.2n/ by itself in documents, online forms and the address bar. It will also open the start menu, favorites, or other windows. Sometimes shortcuts don?t work but open as if I right clicked on them. It will also cause browser windows to go back.

I have run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Spybot Search and Destroy. After running Spybot on startup it did take a while for the computer to start acting up. I can sometimes turn the computer off and back on and it will work ok for a while. It does it both online and off line.

Can someone please try to help me before I go completely nuts.

Thanks
Rita

my computer is doing bad things. it is running sooooooo slowly. i installed weeboot spy sweeper, and ever since i clicked on something under shields(i think) lots of pages refuse to connect. for instance, i can't connect to any shopping sites through ebates any more. by the way, what is it about teens and computers and slow running computers (after they have touched them)? i have told my teen not to download anything, and she says she hasn't... i think i believe her. also, there are a bunch of weird programs listed under the task manager. some of them which will not allowed to be closed. any help will be much appreciated. (aside from the suggestion of tossing it out into the street!

A:help! my computer is doing bad things.

Welcome to TSF.

Don't panic yet. We should be able to fix this.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Go to this site to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Download and install Spybot S&D. Run Spybot and click on the Search for Updates button. Install any updates if they are available. Next click on the Check for Problems button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot.

Please download HijackThis. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required). This program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer.

A:After installing an updated BIOS my computer shuts down when I watch video streamming

Hello elpepin and welcome to TSF,

I am not so sure it is your BIOS causing this issue. Can you give us the specs on your PC?

If it is an OEM (Dell, HP, Lenovo/IBM, etc) we need to know the brand, model and any non factory upgrades.

If it is a custom or self built we need to know...

CPU
PSU - Brand/Model/Wattage
Motherboard - Brand/Model
GPU - Brand/Model (Radeon HDxxxx)
RAM - Brand/Model/Capacity (i.e. Kingston Value Ram 2GB [2x2])

MSConfig shows it as Stopped, but the box is checked next to it. Trying to check and uncheck, then apply, it says "An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an administrator account to make the specified changes."Do you have an HP printer? The msconfig isssue can be caused by HP printers. If you do have an HP printer:Make your change in msconfig. When you get the error message, click OK.Another box may open, do the same thing, click OK.Everything will close out, you will be asked if you want to restart the computer.More information can be found here: http://www.pchell.com/support/msconfig_acc...ied_error.shtmlThere is a way to get rid of it, but it involves editing the registry.IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH EDITING THE REGISTRY, DON'T DO IT.You'll have to live with the message each time you use msconfig.

For some reason, almost every time i reboot my comptuter, after about fifteen or so minutes it shows a blue screen with white letters and restarts on its own. The blue screen comes and goes too fast for me to be able to read what it says before it goes black and then to the start screen.

it's really annoying and never happened before now as far as i can recall.

any steps on making it stop?

Perhaps you chose a sounds theme?

go to control panel/sounds and review the associated tasks with their sounds.

You can always choose the no sounds theme.

Hello,
I have posted here several times, and I got some help, but the problem still persists. After being online for 30 minutes or so, or even having the computer on that long, here are some freezes that occur:
-Ctrl+Alt+del - nothing will happen.
-When I right-click and go to save as, the window will freeze.
-And i just noticed, when i go to right-click, view source, the window freezes.

Also, I have AVG, and AntiVir Guard.... and everytime I scan AVG I pick up a LowZone virus, I heal/delete/move to the vault, and it keeps coming back. Any help is grealy appreciated, thanks

A:To many things popping up on my computer

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your malware problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.I need to get some reports to get a base to start from so I need you to run these programs first.-DeFogger-Please download DeFogger to your desktop.

Hey guys I'm Ix So my problem is this My laptop is blocking email servers and also a LAN I tried to connect to I've tried gmail hotmail and yahoo and I can get to the log in screen but when I log in I get an error message which says quot the connection was refused when attempting to contact x quot I tried to connect to a LAN blocking I is it to Computer want things don't and it didn't show up as something I could connect to So I think that my computer is blocking these things It's not my browser I've tried IE and firefox I've checked my firewalls My norton firewall expired recently so it's not functioning and the default firewall for windows is turned Computer is blocking things I don't want it to off I've looked at internet options in the control panel and found no blocked sites I did three spyware checks with spybot microsoft anti-spyware and hijackthis but found nothing I'm sort of out of ideas The only thing that has changed is that I've lost my firewall antivirus But that wouldn't block things would it So yeah I don't know what to do next If anyone has any ideas that would be really helpful Thanks

A:Computer is blocking things I don't want it to

Hi,

I would suggest you do check on your Norton. Even though it is expired, that only keeps you from updating and it does not mean the program does not work without updates. That simply means that you will not be able to upgrade to the latest virus definitions. It would be my guess that Norton is blocking what you want to not be blocked.

Therefore, after you check that, I would suggest that you quickly put a free antivirus program on that computer, because you can not afford to be without one. Here is a free one you can download called AVG:

Hello, my computer is a dell latitude with windows xp. While playing games, watching or doing stufff, my computer laptop likes to freeze up during playing games, watching video clips, posting on my blog. There are no error messages or anything of that nature. And starts up normally. Why does this laptop keep freezing on me while I'm doing things? One more thing it has its moments where it don't freeze up but it will as time passes. A big thank you in advance for the answer, and not want to charge me $38.00 for an answer.

How much RAM is on that computer?
You may have too many processes running in the background, an application not agreeing with the others, or too many real-time scanners on your computer.
Please click here to download and install HijackThis.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

Hi:

My computer has been acting up recently. First I kept getting a Generic Host message so I found the fix for that and it seems to be working. Now my computer won't come out of sleep mode. The power light flashes on and off. I have tried pressing the power button, the keyboard, the mouse and nothing works. I tried to reboot the computer by shutting it off with the power button and that doesn't work. The only thing that works is to unplug the computer from the power cord. I have run 2 virus scans and CC cleaner, a registeries cleaner and 2 malware applications.

Hi,

I'm new to this.
My computer is doing strange things. It is beeping and opening programs by itself.
Programs that are opened frequently are calculator and oe.
I do not use oe at all.
Often there is a single beep or a double beep, somethimes the beeps occur and programs open but not always.
I have run Spybot, Super antivirus, Avast, they do not find any spyware or viruses.
I have run Everest Home Ed and everything looks normal.

I just ran HiJackThis and everything looks legit but I am not an expert with the registry.

I have spent many hours on Google to find a solution but I have been unsuccessful.

I would be very happy if you are able to figure out what the problem is.

I have a 2.4ghz Celeron, 512 ram, xp pro sp2, hispeed lite with cogeco

Thanks

Hello, mayefitch
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .

We need to create an OTViewIt ReportPlease download OTViewIt by OldTimer.
Save it to your desktop.
Double click on the icon on your desktop.
Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
Push the button.
Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:OTViewIt.txt <-- Will be opened
Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized


We need to scan for rootkits with GMERPlease download gmer.zip and save to your desktop.alternate download site 1
alternate download site 2

Unzip/extract the file to its own folder. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure. Win 2000 users click here.)
When you have done this, disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
Note: There is a small chance this application may crash your computer so save any work you have open.
Double-click on Gmer.exe to start the program.
Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
If it gives you a warning at program start about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a scan...click NO.
Click on "Settings", then check the first five settings:System Protection and Tracing
Processes
Save created processes to the log
Drivers
Save loaded drivers to the log

You will be prompted to restart your computer. Please do so.
Run Gmer again and click on the Rootkit tab.
Look at the right hand side (under Files) and uncheck all drives with the exception of your C drive.
Make sure all other boxes on the right of the screen are checked, EXCEPT for "Show All".
Important! Please do not select the "Show all" checkbox during the scan.
Click on the "Scan" and wait for the scan to finish.Note: Before scanning, make sure all other running programs are closed and no other actions like a scheduled antivirus scan will occur while this scan completes. Also do not use your computer during the scan.

When completed, click on the Copy button and right-click on your Desktop, choose "New" > Text document. Once the file is created, open it and right-click again and choose Paste or Ctrl+V. Save the file as gmer.txt and copy the information in your next reply.
Note: If you have any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode

In your next reply, please include the following:OTViewIt.txt

My sons computer is possesed or something.

He turned it on this morning and was presented with a screen: Safe Mode, Safe mode with ?, Normal startup, and Last Previous Good Config.
Hit Normal...computer restarted...hit anything and computer restarts. Have yet to get to the Windows XP screen.
Nothing was installed that we are aware of...nothing changed that we are aware of.
How can I get this blasted computer to start?
He is running Windows XP sp2 home edition.

A:Computer Turns Itself Off And Other Things

My first thought is adware, spyware or even a virus. There was a virus floating around months ago that would shut down the computer. It is possible that it wasn't shut down properly (power failure) and there are important files that are corrupt. It is also possible that the hard drive is going bad. My laptop did the same thing when it's hard drive died.

Assuming that there's a problem with your hardware, your computer manufacturer sometimes provides some self diagnostic programs to determine what's wrong. If you have a Dell or Compaq/HP, there should be a diagnostic CD that came with the computer that you can run.

Can you tell us about your computer?
