Preferred Solution: Computer runs real slow, i know somethings wrong but cant figure it out, help please.

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Computer becomes real slow, but not sure whats wrong

Everything looks ok. Lets clear some junk and scan for some viruses:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! http://cleanup.stevengould.org/ (Alternate Link if main link don't work - http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/CleanUp.exe ) and install it. Run CleanUp! and click on CleanUp! button. Once it's done, you may click the Close button. When asked if you want to logoff, choose Yes.

Please empty any Quarantine folder in your antivirus program and purge all recovery items in the Spybot program (if you use it) before running this tool.

Download the Mwav virus checker at http://www.mwti.net/antivirus/mwav.asp (Use Link 3)

1. Save it to a folder.
2. Reboot into Safe Mode.
3. Double click the Mwav.exe file. This is a stand alone tool and NOT just a virus checker......so it won't install anything.
4. Select all local drives, scan all files, and press SCAN. When it is completed, anything found will be displayed in the lower pane.
5. In the Virus Log Information Pane......
Left click and highlight all the information in the Lower pane --- Use &CTRL C &on your keyboard to copy everything found in the lower pane and save it to a notepad file
*Note* If prompted that a virus was found and you need to purchase the product to remove the malware, just close out the prompt and let it continue scanning. We are not going to use this to remove anything...but to ID t... Read more

Hi!!!
Lets get to it, ok?
I got this new laptop a while ago, an Acer Aspire 4810T, intel core 2 solo cpu, 1.40 GHz, 3 GB RAM
Windows Vista Home Premium 2007, blah blah blah...

Recently its been pretty darn slow, the startup especially, its disappointing since its supposed to be fast. It takes 4-5 min until I can safely start Explorer without it getting stuck.
Also recently my sister reported a blue screen of death while it was shutting down, but she didnt note down what it said.

It might also be imperative to mention that the systems built in Mcafee has discovered and blocked several cases of Generic.fw and Generic.dx. The prob started occurring ever since that. I cant seem to locate them in the task manager or anywhere else for that matter.

Windows 98

Helping a lady with her computer. It just seems to be running very slow. When you connect to the Internet, then click Explorer it slowly loads as you watch it in the progress bar on the status bar Even when it looks like it is finally there it still won't come up for a long time, however, even tho the home page is not up, if you type an address in the address bar it will take you there, slow but will get you there. If you go back to the desk top and click explorer, It will again look like it is loading but not come up or have to wait for a long, long time. (as in like 4 or 5 min.)

Also if you are loading something like windows updates or a download and close it to the bottom of the page so you can go to another site while that is downloading ,it seems as though it will either freeze up or take an extreme amount of time to get there, you wait and wait and you finally think well its not going to work so you click on something else. Then all of a sudden the page you wanted will come up. Does not matter if it is a web page you are waiting for or to get somewhere like start>settings>control panel still takes a long time.

Answer:Windows 98-Everything is clean-but runs real slow & weird-Would you look at HJT Log?

Your log appears clean. Not sure what is causing your slow system, but it could be any number of things. Is the RAM maxed out? how about the CPU usage? Not sure what to tell you about the pointer.

To enable the Dial-up Networking Connection icon in the system tray, follow these steps:
1. Open the Dial-up Networking folder. In Windows 98, you can access this folder from My Computer on the desktop. In Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you can access the Dial-up Networking folder from Control Panel.
2. On the Connections menu, click Settings.
3. Click to select the Show an icon on the taskbar after connected check box.
4. Click OK to close the Dial-up Networking Settings window.
To disable the Dial-up Networking Connection icon in the system tray, use the steps in this section, but click to clear the Show an icon on the taskbar after connected check box that is mentioned in step 3.

* I posted this in the XP forum and someone referred me here *It was running really slowly and I kept getting popups everywhere so I ran several scans (Malwarebytes, Hijackthis, and CommandFix - I know this last one can be dangerous but my computer seemed to be fine) last night.

I came across a site a couple of days ago that posted an advertisement as soon as I clicked on the site.  My computer has not been the same ever since.  I am still downloading files as fast as ever, but it's my browsing that has become horrid.  Pages happen to freeze up.  I have to click enter for the url twice most times just to get the page loaded.  I tried system restore and it says that it was not able to restore the system because windows could not extract a file which was in my temporary files.  The file was labeled as seUY.exe.  I am guessing it is a virus.  Has anyone heard of this file and if so how do I get rid of it?Thanks in advance.

Hello, we have a Medion 3.0ghz computer with windows xp, 350 watt power supply, 1 gig ram, 160 gig hard drive, and a PCI express Radeon 128mb video card.

It is having issues of the display not turning on sometimes. The light on the computer comes on, but the monitor does not read a signal. We have tried a different monitor, we tried a different power supply, different video card, different ram, and a different hard drive. None of those fixed the problem. Most of the time when you try to turn it on, the display will not turn on, but sometimes it will turn on. When it turns on, it works fine until you turn it off and then usually it doesn't turn on again unless we try several times of turning the computer off and on.

Any suggestions on what could be causing this and how we could fix it?
Thanks!

ANYWAYS

So usually i'm pretty good with this thing, but this time I've ran out of ideas.

I was in the middle of replacing my graphics card when I tried to turn the thing on and got no response. I put the older one back in and I got the same response.... this black screen would come up and say "CMOS check bad"

Press 1 to load setup
Press 2 to load default settles
Press 12 to.... I dunno.

ANYWAYS, regardless of what I press, the computer will freeze. Pressing 1 does nothing, pressing 2 will load the computer, but the computer will be extremely laggy. And to test this, I decided to play WoW and it crashed hardcore with this LOUD staticy screeching in the speakers which wouldnt stop until I turned the computer off. And ever since, I couldn't get any response. Not even the old black screen. The monitor wont even respond, almost like there's graphics card.

For a little while when I managed to get the newer graphics card installd, the computer worked just fine. I managed to play WoW on it for about 3 hours without a single problem, it wasn't until I returned home that this started acting up again.

hi
recently my computer started to act weird. it is basically slowed down. it freezes a lot, usually it goes away after a while. when i do scan or update with norton it always stops at the same point and makes weird noise. i have no idea what this could be... norton does not detect viruses (although i am not sure if it does updates correctly). spybot found DSO exploit, but did not succeed in removing it - next scans always show that this dso exploit is still there. i am not sure if this is the thing that screws up my computer. here is my hijack this log, i hope someone could help me and tell me what i can do... i would really appreciate your responses, i feel i am not going to make it on my own

My computer will freeze frequently. By "freezing", I don't mean programs stop responding or it gets overloaded. I mean the screen physically freezes in place and whatever sound was being made stutters (it goes da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da really fast with "da" being whatever note the song was on). Freezes usually last for about 10 minutes, then the computer will unfreeze.

The computer usually freezes when I'm running programs any more resource-hogging than a firefox, thunderbird, or word, though somethings the freezes are random. Freezing seems to occur more often if more computer resources are being used. When a freeze starts, the cpu fan spikes to near full speed and gets louder than normal.It stays that way and then calms as soon as the computer unfreezes.

When it freezes, the computer looses its wi-fi connection (through USB adapter) and I have to wait for it to re-connect. Also, when I click after unfreezing, sometimes it will act like I'm holding down CTRL or right-clicking, when I am in fact doing normal left-clicks. This problem will continue until I press CTRL and I right click.

Also, any keys I press during the freeze will all respond at once after the freeze. So if hit a bunch of keys on my keyboard during a freeze, I'll get that beeping sound from my motherboard like when you hold down a bunch of keys at once, when the computer comes back from its freeze.

Also, when it unfreezes, Windows time will start at the time it froze... Read more

Answer:Computer Freezes...Cannot Figure out what is wrong!

Two thing come to mind,faulty memory stick or power pack on the way out.
Remove all memory bar one if that's no good exchange for a different one if after you've tried them all one at a time it still freezes on
to the power pack try another one if you can borrow one

Answer:Computer runs erratically - shutsdown, freezes, runs slow, fails to post

Hi
 
Welcome to the bleeping computer forum 
 
Unfortunately, intermittent issues are one of the difficult fault to troubleshoot. Please follow the below steps to collect some basic info about your system.
 
1 ) Generate a report about your system using Speccy by reading the guide below.
 
   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/323892/publish-a-snapshot-using-speccy/
 
 Post the web link displayed by Speccy in next reply.
 
2 ) Download and run Minitoolbox from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/minitoolbox/
 
    Run the tool and only select the following tick boxes.
 
    -List last 10 Event viewer errors
    -List installed programs
    -List devices
    -List users, partition and memory size
 
Now click "Go" and post the output in next reply
 
After reading your logs, either me or any other forum volunteer will assist to you to diagnose the issue.
 
Edit:
 
Don't ever use the registry cleaning function in CCleaner or Glary utilities. Only use them to clean the temp files. Using registry cleaners may cause unpredictable damage to the registry. If anyone properly knows which registry keys are garbage, that is only Microsoft.

Hi all,
I have a fairly old computer. I say that because my computer that Im no longer using is about 9 years old...and this one has basically the same setup as that one, lol. It is a refurbished one from a school district. Pentium 4. 3ghz. 1gig of ram. XP

Im not totally sure what the problem is, to be honest. It just seems to run very slowly. Im having a hard time browsing the web (I mainly use Chrome) as pages just take a long time to load. Wireless connection, but that also seems to vary quite a bit (as Im writing this...the speed is going from 5.5 - 54mbps - and yes there is a password to get on our router)...the router is on the other side of the wall. My wifes laptop seems to do just fine. Even when Im not surfing the web...it seems to take a long time for anything to open up.

I had something on here last week that opened up new tabs or pages when I sometimes clicked on regular links on webpages. Id have to click the link to open up the new tab...then close it for that same link to work properly. As far as I know...I have successfully removed it.

sometimes when I close a tab on Chrome...the page turns a lighter blue color for a few seconds before it actually closes.

So I can't figure out what is causing the computer to run so slowly. Not much that really sticks out as far as a single issue...just runs so danged slow it's driving me nuts and I wonder if something has snuck on here that Im not aware of. I've tried using Avast and mcaffee home secur... Read more

So i started it back up again and after the tab screen ( mobo bios screen ) it shutdown again. so i powered it up once more and once again it did the same thing. so i left the computer for about 10 minutes to see if that helped, so basicly after the 10 mintues i turned it back on and it all booted well. i went into the device manager to make sure it was all there and it was, nothign was fried . anyhow i went on to install this music program when i noticed a major lag in my system. i checked all the programs running and it was usual, nothign chewing up to much ram or cpu but i dont know what the problem is. now everything i do my whole computer comes to a freeze. so i reinstalled windows after backing up thinking maybe it was my windows that was corrupt. windows took longer than average to install, bout 45 mins or so. after that i th...

Its just a page that tries to sell me stuff and then when I do another search from there I get google like I wanted to begin with. I have a feeling I have something still infecting my cpu. My cpu is also fairly slow so if you see something in the hijack log that I dont need please let me know so I can remove it. Thanks in advance for your help .

Question: Somethings wrong

the pictures on my computer shows very fuzzy i think its maybe the video the picture got fuzzy after my failed attempt to install a web cam.help plz.
 

Answer:Somethings wrong

Sounds like you messed up your video drivers. If you have the install set on the hard drive run the install again.

If you are using the original drivers from your installation CD, then insert it and run them again.

If you are using updated drivers you got from the web, then you need to download the installation set to a folder you create (name it VidDrivers) and then remove your existing screwed-up drivers using Add/Remove and reboot and then goto that VidDrivers folder and execute the install.

Answer:think somethings wrong

anything look fishy? Hello joewcarson,We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.Thank you for understanding.Regards,The weatherman (Moderator)

I installed Apache and PHP cause I thought thats how you can load PHP pages from your comp but it didn't work.

So I uninstalled Apache and then PHP and it wanted me to restart my comp so I did.

Then when Windows loads it has this wallpaper with some stuff about active desktop which I didnt have any active desktop things.

And I did a Spybot S&D scan and it came up with heaps of missing shared DLLs.

Can anyone enlighten me on whats going on?

Okay, I?m running a Compaq Presario 5000 with XP Home Edition, SP3.Norton 2009, Spybot search & destroy and CCleaner.I had some strange little things happening in the last couple of days, example: When I open a window, it opens and then minimizes immediately (not normal) and does this with all newly opened windows.Some windows open, minimize and when you try to maximize them they won?t allow it and blink on the Taskbar about 10 times before finally allowing you to maximize them.Programs like Word, open up fine, but say I want to look at the desktop, minimize Word? but no; it pops right back up not allowing you to move it, which leaves you with closing it as the only option.Task Manager is doing the same thing, but worse! Open Task Manager, it opens in the maximized position and immediately goes to Taskbar, then continuously back and forth between Maximized window and Taskbar. The only way to stop it is to right click and close.CCleaner opens in maximized size and then bounces between small and large.I use WinRAR for work quite often and have the same ?bouncing? effects while downloading or uploading.I?ve run Spybot & CCleaner ? cleaned everything, then afterwards ran Norton.I?ve also run Ewido & BitDefender scans in Safe mode over night (yes, separately).Nothing seemed to help and I?m not finding any obvious viruses or Trojans.Any suggestions would be great.Thanks!

For a while my computers been acting wierd. Takes a VERY long time to shut down/restart and runs poorly. I dl'ed new iTunes and AIM the other day and it went wack. iTunes installed and wont start up, but is "running" in the task manager. Uninstalled, reinstalled, no change. AIM never installed, because it just sat in limbo waiting to start - still runs fine as old version. I suspect other things arent how they should be, thanks.

Once again a computer in my family has a problem and once again the problem solving has been palmed off on me!

Here's what's happened...

Windows Vista Laptp, worked fine yesterday. Today it says it has no internet connection through it's built in wireless.
After a few goes at trying to get it working we give in, and restore the system to two days ago.
The intenet connection is back! Yay - but Avira AntiVir won't update, scan (It comes up with the message 'The specific modules cannot be loaded) and the AntiVir Guard has been deactivated and it now doesn't give an option to reactive all it says is 'services' and 'help'.
Help indeed!
So I went off and tried Windows Security Centre, everything is happily green except for Malware Protection, which is RED. When you try to 'Turn on now' it does nothing, the laptop just sits there looking back at you.

I ran spybot and it kicked up 3 cookies trackers but nothing unusual. I tried HijackThis, it brings up a log but I don't know what it means.
Something is going on but I don't know what.

Is this something you guys could help me with.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Okay, somethings wrong...

minimization and window focus changes are usually a program running in the background, i have heard of norton doing this for games but not general windows, however, try disabling norton just to see what it does.

Otherwise click on start then run and type in
msconfig
and click ok, then go to the startup tab and uncheck all the items there and click OK and restart the pc, this will usually rule out extra programs doing its

(it could also be something as simple as a stuck key on your keyboard as well, or mouse if you have a mouse with multiple buttons)

Hey,
Okay there is something seriously wrong with my laptop. A couple of days ago it started displaying error messages and windows defender started giving me trojan warnings. Like an idiot I had allowed my norton internet security subscription to expire. So then i downloaded spybot search and destroy and got a norton antivirus subscription for 12 months. I scanned my computer with both and removed all the evils within my laptop, or so it seemed. Now whats happening is that on startup i get a RunDLL error message. Random webpages open up while im browsing the internet. Spybot keeps alerting me of registry changes which i am forced to approve because they keep popping up a mile a minute if denied. Both windows defender and Norton antivirus keep alerting me to different trojans and 'threats'. However, when i scan my pc with these 2 softwares, they declare it COMPLETELY HEALTHY?!
here are some of the things that windows defender spybot and norton alert me to but are unable to detect later on:
W32.vundo
W32.fotomoto
W32.small
a number of different "trojans" (thats all norton says)
and according to norton my computer keeps doing something called WebDir activity by pinging something called everer.com .
please help!
theres something seriously wrong here.

i recently built my own computer, and have installed diablo2.
the introduction screen "blizzard" and "blizzardnorth" sound and look perfectly fine but as soon as the main choice screen comes up the sound becomes slightly choppy with a touch of static.
if i continue on to the actual game it increases from slightly to constantly and the static is fairly constant, as well as gameplay progressing to becoming unplayable from unnatural lag. all of my peripherals seem to work fine unless in diablo mode. my cd player plays cd's with no chop my mp3 player gives great sound wether on classical or hip hop and at any volume level. I have adjusted visuals as well as audio in the actual game to no avail, I down loaded the latest mouse drivers for my intellipoint imouse. and also the latest drivers for my legacy sound card,am using a gforce2 graphics accelerator,pentium4 1.5 gig cpu,20 gig hard drive,256 mb of ddr ram 350 watt power supply and a 52x cd rom drive. Is there something i should check and adjust in the computer.... clock speed or anything in the usual settings that may clarify this problem??
thanks for any time and effort you may use to assist me

Answer:somethings wrong somewhere

Have you checked your Direct X to see if you have the most up to date version?
Also is there any other application running on your computer that may be trying to access your sound/video at the same time as the game?

I to at first had problems running D2, but I found that once I made sure I hade no un-needed programs running that most of the bugs worked out, as far as your lag problem I cant help, you much there, I use a HSP56 MicroModem and it runs everything fine.
hope some of this helps but if not maybe someone else can offer better info..

I have installed NHL '99 on my CPU at home and it works to an extent. Every now and then the screen goes crazy. It starts flipping like the tracking is off on a VCR. Is there something that I need to add to the computer or take off or whatever. I don't know I used it before on my old computer and it worked fine. I have Windows XP and that's about all I can tell you right now without looking at the PC. Let me know any info needed and I will get it for you.

Hi. I had some previous help from this forum and thought I might try again. I posted my hijackthis log a few days ago and someone helped me with that. Now my computer is running really slow again, keeps freezing and every time I start up again, it won't let me open anything until I've run RegCure. I just keep getting an error message, but it doesn't ask to send an error report. Something else I've noticed, when the computer's running like c**p, I bring up the task manager and it says wmpnetwk.exe NETWORK SERVICE 50 and it's using anywhere from 100,000K to 200,000K mem usage to run it.I also have lost saved passwords.This is my techexpress link from pc pitstop, which teacup said to post if I needed any more help.http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=ABD9SW6L88GSPVTGI'll post the link to my past post as well in case it's at all useful.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/130207/not-sure-what-type-of-infection-i-have/Any help would be great.Thankyou.

Answer:I Know Somethings Wrong

By the way, I just thought I'd add, all my problems seemed to start when I installed Optus Internet Security Suite. It has since been unistalled as I did a system restore a few days before I found this forum.

P.S. The system restore didn't help.

If anyone here could help me i would really appreciate it. Im running windows xp service pack 2.

When i started my pc up today it froze at the windows start up screen and my screen went black.

I restarted my computer in safe mode. In safe mode its starts up fine. I ran a thorough virus scan using avast home edition, it came back clear. I then did another scan using spybot search and destroy which also came up clear. I then did an online virus scan at www.bitdefender.com which came back clear.

I decided to try a system restore, i did this and windows managed to boot up. I then restarted the computer to see if the problem was fixed, but again my pc froze at the same point.

I restarted and did another system restore to get windows back up again. I had recently installed winamp, so i decided to uninstall and delete it just in case it was causing a problem, i deleted several other programs i don?t use anymore as well. I did a disk clean up to get rid of all my temporary files. I then decided to do a defrag, my drive was very fragmented but the defrag fixed it. I restarted my pc to see if it would work.

This is what now happens:

It gets up to the screen which has the windows icon and a loading bar underneath.

Screen goes black, freezes, switches off, then comes back on again at the windows welcome screen, the computer freezes on this screen, if i leave it for 5 to ten minutes windows will eventually boot up.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. An... Read more

Sounds like you have some malware on your computer which is replicating like mad. The random number.exes are basically copies or variants of the malware/virus trying to ensure you can't remove it or slowing down your machine with crap processes.

You currently have two options:

1) Wipe and reinstall - Some viruses/malware will screw up your system and sometimes it is better to just do a clean install to avoid the headaches.

2) Try and clean it - The reason this is number two is without identifying the root cause of the problem, you can try and download Malwarebyte's Anti-Mallware and Super Anti-Spyware from a clean computer, reboot your current computer into safe mode and try installing those two programs to see if they can clean it out. If it is a rootkit infection, it may be difficult to remove in general and in some cases, if you haven't set up a secondary administrator account on the system, you may still have some pro...

Please download SDFix from here and save it to your desktop


Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.


Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Post that log in your next reply.

Im not sure that this is the right forum to start this thread, so please move if appropriate. I have asked for advice on a couple different sites in the past to no avail. I go through the steps that they want done first and then post my HJT this log. Everyone says everything looks good though. I have for a long time now been convinced that I have a virus or something on my PC but neither HJT or the multiple anit-virus programs I have run turned anything much up. For some reason I still was convinced and continued trying differnt things. A cople of days ago I decided to reinstall Norton anti-virus and give that a try again. I did however stop explorer.exe from running while I installed it. I ran the scan and it actually found a virus.... W32.Alcra.D. All of the files were found here.. C:\Program Files\Ares\My Shared Folder\..... What worries me is I uninstalled this P2P program, maybe a year ago. It makes me believe my original thoughts were right. I have multiple viruses that have been here for sometime. Now Norton seems to be not running properly again and not detecting anything. So Im at a loss and I dont know if a HJT log is going to help...

Answer:Not Sure What Going On? Somethings Wrong

to BC r350z, You have two options as I see it: You can submit an HJT log to our expert team of analysts to receive step-by-step instructions on ridding your machine of malware. To post an HJT log please read the 'Preparation Guide' before posting to: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Hij...alysis-f22.html Alternatively you can post specifics in this forum and members will advise you ways to resolve your problems. (Please do not do this at the same time as having your log analysed.) Note: members are not permitted to advise on HJT logs in the open forums. We need to know some information about your system such as CPU type, RAM capacity, hard drive make and size, graphics card type, what version of windows, what anti-virus or anti-spyware you have and some details about your applications. Use 1 Anti-Virus program, 1 Firewall and many Anti-Spyware programs, supplemented by occasional online Anti-Virus scans. Start by following this guide: Is your Anti-virus program current and updated? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.) Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system. Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following: Ad-Aware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/

I just found out today that my sis visited a site and now I have some spyware. I removed the spyware using malwarebytes. But when I visit google.com, it redirects me to google.de and then when I try to login it says something about invalid security certificate and then 5 minutes ago while online, another virus pop up popped up and I exited the browser. Ive scanned with avir antivirus, malware bytes, super antispyware, and it still cant find it. Can anyone help me? Ive checked date and time and they are correct, cleared cookies, and I even downloaded spybot but it wont run for some reason just like my antivirus did a while ago until I ran malware bytes and got some of the malware off my computer.

I have a hijackthis log and I think a malware bytes log if I can find it. Let me know what I need to do. Thanks

Also, Download Accelerator Plus can be adware.

Are you using the registered version?

When you've uninstalled SpyBot, have you un-immunized beforehand? Try that and using add or remove after. Then reboot.

I am unable to modify power plans, and change the effect that closing the lid on my laptop does:
Here are some of the symptoms:
1) DOS mode command "Net Start Power" results in "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied" when issued from an id with Administrator privileges.
2) DOS mode command "runas /noprofile /user:Administrator 'cmd /k net start power'" produces the error message "RUNAS ERROR : unable to run cmd /k net start power. 1327: Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank
passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or  a policy restriction has been enforced."
3) Device Manager Batteries + Microsoft Composite Battery "Device status: This device cannot start (code 10)."
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

The internet on my laptop has been working on and off lately. When I started up my laptop this morning, it decided to do a system repair...have no idea why but let it run anyway (hoping it might solve the choppy internet). It came to a point and asked if I would like to do a system restore and I clicked yes (ughhh, why did I click yes). When it was done, it restarted, and came to the log-in screen like normal but the keyboard or mouse would not function, I also tried to turn on the on-screen keyboard but that wouldn't come up. Tried to restart it a few times but that didn't work. So I plugged in a usb mouse that I had previously installed to click on the guest account and logged in. I went to check on the drivers and there were errors in the network adapter section, the Mice and other pointing devices section, and the keyboard section. It wouldn't connect to the internet so I can't get the drivers; plus since I don't have a keyboard, I can't type in the password for the admin account to download the drivers ( I can't really do much on the guest account).

Not quite sure what to do, so I need some help. I'll try just about anything.

P.S. - The only reason I haven't restored it to factory setting is because of all the personal things I have on the other account and I haven't backed them up and can't access them from the guest account. But if there is no other way to fix the problem, I guess I'll have no choice but t... Read more

Answer:Somethings wrong with my drivers

You can access all your files using an Ubuntu CD, follow this guide to back up all your important files: Ubuntu Live CD to back up files from your dead Windows You will obviously need access to a working PC to make the CD.

Then, before we start to try and fix things it would be wise to run a test on the hard drive. Something is corrupting your system files so we need to be sure it is not down to a faulty hard drive, if it is, any repair attempts will be futile.

You can create the Seatools disc on any fully functional PC with a CD burner or use any PC to create the Flash Drive.

Open Internet Explorer and click on this: Seatools

Save the download to your desktop.

In Windows 7 right click the ISO file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts.
For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. ImgBurn Install the program (make sure you uncheck any boxes that will install bundled software) and start the application. Select the top left hand option to Write image file to disc and then on the next window click on the small yellow folder icon and browse to the ISO file on your desktop. Then click on the two grey discs with the arrow in between (bottom left) and leave it to complete the operation.

You will need a blank recordable CD or a re-recordable CD. If your PC has no CD/DVD drive or you would prefer to run Seatools from a Flash Drive follow this guide: How to run Seatools from a US... Read more

My first thought is that the power supply is suspect. If you can get it tested, that would be good.

Second thought is RAM.

I recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

Please help me.

Answer:Computer runs really slow in normal mode, but runs fine in safe mode

anyone?

These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7. So, finally, I ran ESET Free Online Scanner, and it detected "Win32/Toolbar.Babylon and Win32/TopMedia.a" virus infections. Scan took about 2 1/2 hours. I set it to search the drives/ar... Read more
