Preferred Solution: Woo i dunno what happened but RPC Shutdown is back!

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.)

I was playing Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory, whilst talking to a friend over Skype, and I suddenly get this blue screen error... It's the first thing that's gone wrong with my newly built PC, and I dunno why. My PC restarted before I could jot down the specific error, but it said something like "Driver_not_less_or_equal". It recommended I remove newly added hardware, what is up :'(

Welcome to TSF....

Try re-installing the sound card software and then reboot the computer and try the sound.

Also any error messages on this would be great if you could post them?

Well, in XP if you shutdown via "shutdown.exe -s -c "Hello" -t 10", you'd have a nice dialog with a ticking clock. But doing the equivalent "shutdown /s /c "Hello" /t 10" just yields a message box with comment, a title but no timer.

Am I missing something here, or the box has been revamped for good?

As the title suggests, I got a BSOD seconds after pressing the shutdown button from the start menu. I had closed Universe Sandbox moments before shutting the computer down. I built this computer myself two and a bit years ago, the only things I've changed since then are the RAM (November 2011) and the video card (October 2012). I've never seen it BSOD before until now.

One persistent problem I've been finding with my computer is that, only recently, something is causing it to halt completely. It locks to the point that it doesn't respond to first-level interrupts (if I press the Num Lock key on my keyboard the light doesn't change), my speakers just buzz, and it sits there until I force it to turn off. When I turn it back on, it prompts me to start it in safe mode, but that's it. It just says unexpected shutdown in the logs. I'm sure it's hardware, but I can't tell what. I first thought it was hard drives being faulty and that high read/write activity was causing it, but I was watching system usage when it happened once and it was only at 4%. I asked some friends of mine at my old office (I worked in IT) and they weren't sure either. They recommended I start by replacing various c... Read more

Hi Everyone,

New to the forums, first post.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this ongoing issue I've been having with my PC. Lately, its been happening when I've been playing Diablo 3, however it has happened when surfing the internet with Chrome. There is no indication of when it will happen. Always happens at random. The computer freezes completely and the sound goes on an infinite loop. Eventually it magically comes back as if nothing happened at all. No error messages popping up from my system tray(for example, I don't see a "Nvidia Driver has recovered from an error")

I don't have any crash dumps/error logs to share at this moment, as I am posting from work. So this thread is a bit of a place holder for later so I can update it with relevant information if you need it.

My System specs are as follows:

i7 2600k(not overclocked)
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Rev 3.0 Motherboard
ASUS Xonar D2X PCI-e sound card
MSI 470GTX
8 GB Corsair Vengeance (not 100%sure on that)
Windows 7 Professional 64bit (not retail, upgrade from Vista on a student deal)
1TB Seagate HDD

The other day I ran a chkdsk, but it hadn't solved any problems. I have yet to run a RAM test, will likely do that when I get home from work. System restore didn't fix the issue either.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or similar issues? It's getting extremely frustrating!

Thank you for your time.

I have owned seven T series ThinkPads in my life, and I have converted to MacBook Pro. Why has Lenovo removed the titanium from the T61? IBM had named the T series for its titanium. That is where the T had come from. They have said that they have removed it for better wireless connectivity. MacBooks are made of aluminum, and they connect perfectly. Furthermore, IBM titanium models had connected just fine as well. To replace the sexy titanium cover with a cheap painted plastic is product line suicide! The paint comes off the T61, and it feels so cheap. This is why I have converted to MacBook Pro. Lenovo, please bring back the titanium casing. The Z series had been brilliant. You did not give it a proper chance. Professional notebooks are to be made of metal casing, titanium or aluminum. Anything else is substandard. Bring back titanium, and you will see five immediate notebook purchases from me.   





MacBook Pro, with an aluminum unibody enclosure **As of September 15, 2008, our company has completely switched to Apple. Having used ThinkPad products for over 10 years, we had desperately tried to find just one reason to continue using these products, to no avail. We are of the view that ThinkPads are no longer premium products. We wish you the best of luck with your ThinkPad! Happy computing?**

Answer:What happened to the Titanium in ThinkPad T Series? Bring it back!

Hello, I have never seen an IBM or Lenovo ThinkPad T-series notebook with a titanium lid.  I checked this article on Wikipedia, and it did say that some models of the the Z60 series (and maybe the Z61t) had a titanium lid.  The Wikipedia article did state, though, that ThinkPads contain several novel components, including magnesium and titantium, carbon-fiber reinforced plastic and other composite materials and alloys.  So maybe there is some titanium, but just on the inside or at the hinges. I have a friend who has one of the Apple Mac Books with the aluminum chassis, and he uses an external wireless card with it because he says its wireless reception is poor.  I believe he may have one of the older models, though, so this may be something which has been corrected in later generations. If you really do want a titanium lid, perhaps you could order a sheet from a company like Online Metals, have whatever burnishing, laser-engraving, polishing, coatings and so forth applied, and then do some kind of chemical or RF weld to bond it to the lid.  Personally, though, I think that if you are going to go through that kind of effort, it might be more interesting use a material like palladium foil.  That might be a little more expensive, though, then using titanium. If the issue, though, is just the color of the lid and not its place on the periodic table of the elements, then perhaps you could use a service like ColorWare...

My mouse has been working fine for a while but it stopped working followed by the keyboard, I put it down to a Windows update but because Windows 7 keeps bluescreening on a restore point I couldn't recover.  I contacted Lenovo got the rebuild disc for my machine, completely rebuilt it, all working fine, then after 2 days same issue, mouse stopped, keyboard stopped, restore points make no difference.  Does anyone know what windows update is causing this and if there is a fix aside from rebuilding, I can't keep doing this and I need to understand the cause really, not had it with a laptop before.  Gone back to using my old laptop until I can get it sorted.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Answer:T510 Mouse and Keyboard stops working with Windows Update - unable to roll back, happened twice

This shouldn't happen as far as I know... Make sure all of your drivers are up-to-date before running Windows Update? Maybe some hotfix conflicts with one of the earlier drivers found on the restore discs... Not sure. Maybe avoid installing Windows Updates after restoring?Also, make sure you don't have a virus on one of your external drives. Maybe a virus is infecting your computer repeatedly.

Firstly I am using WindowsXP/SP2.
When I go to start, then click turnoff computer, the desktop flashes in a mini second to the colour background (only) of the desktop, no icons, just the background colour. Then back to just before I clicked turn off, then shuts down normally. It is the flick/flash I am wondering about?

Ok here is an interesting problem. A couple weeks back my laptop started having issues turning off. Everytime I went to shutdown, it would shutdown, but then it would immediately turn back on like I told it to restart. It would run normally once started. So to "solve" this problem I would unplug it when all the lights went out before it began to restart. I thought I had a good temporary fix, but yesterday the ac adapter went out(light on it is still on but I cant get a voltage reading at the output end). So I change to another ac adapter and the laptop boots fine and runs fine, but still has the shutdown problem.
The battery on it still works and would charge on the old ac adapter until it quit, and it charges off the new one as well.
One thought I had after reading some forums of people with similar problems was that the CMOS battery could be dead.

Answer:Laptop turns right back on after shutdown

The usual symptom with a faulty CMOS battery is it refuses to start and gives a message to go into the Bios setup and reset the date etc. so I doubt that's the problem here.

Does it shut down properly if you start it in Safe Mode ? (tap F8 key after switch on to get the Safe Mode menu and press Enter).

Hello,

Recently, my laptop shut down and I havn't been able to turn it on since, I thought it might have been my Power Cord, so i got that replaced, but it still never worked?
Nothing works, nothing works when i press the power button, I tried taking out the battery and power cord, etc. but still nothing...

I don't think it is the motherboard because I recently had my motherboard replaced with a brand new one, so I don't really know the problem?

Could somebody please help me...?
Thanks...
 

Answer:Laptop shutdown, now won't turn back on?

Hi Howlett93,
Welcome to Techspot.

Just a couple of question:

Why was the orgigional motherboard replaced?

What is the make of the Laptop?

What did you do the day before is didnt turn on again?

CAn we have more PC specs? eg operating sytem RAM etc.

When you tired taking out the battery did you hold down the powerbutton for about 0 second to get rid of any remaining charge.

This gives us a clearer picture.

Hey everyone!
New to the forum and have a...situation here.

I built a rig but the problem I am having is whenever I play certain games (ie: Prototype, L4D, GRID) the computer would (most of the time in random places) shut down completely, as if someone held the power button, and then about 2-3 seconds later power back up and do the normal load.
The thing is that it does the exact same thing when I change the RAM setting in BIOS. I have the option on picking the speed and etc. And when I change the RAM speed and click F10 to save and exit, shuts down and then powers back up (not a normal restart, all the fans etc stop running). And that only happens with the ram speed. I can change ANYTHING else in the BIOS and that will not happen. I did a memtest on the ram, each stick separately and did about 3-4 passes on each, no errors.
I am stumped...I have been in contact with ASUS and so far no one was able to tell me anything.

My mobo is an ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution and I am using CORSAIR XMS3 DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). (full name: CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C9 ) I would post a link but it won't let me ...need more posts lol.

Answer:Random shutdown then power back on

What power supply do you have?

It's normal for motherboards to reboot after changing RAM settings, mine does.

The reason your machine may turn back on, is that it may be set to reboot after a power failure. If your power supply is shutting down because it's being overloaded, the motherboard sees that as power failure.

I recently purchased a gateway e-1500d pc (windows xp, 2005) off craigslist. It started up just fine, ran a little slow. After about a week it started intermediately turning on. If I leave it be for a while, its pretty much a much higher chance of start up (I found that if I use a grounded outlet my success rate goes up and I'm living in a 20's house with few grounded outlets).

I already bought ram for it, and it was having some issues accepting both sticks but I think it was an installation error. It loaded fine when I've been testing it with one of the old sticks and one of the new sticks (except I didn't have the mouse or keyboard plugged in on load up and it didn't pick them up / recognize those utilities until so I shut it down (windows logged off, shut down properly) but even with a grounded outlet it wouldn't fire back up when I hit the button.

When the case is removed and I hit the power button, it will apply enough power to overcome the friction force to get the fans to initially start, but they immediately cut out. I'm hoping it isn't the mobo. I think I've made sure all the connectors are
in the right spot.

I used to be pretty geeky so I know how to open up a computer, replace some stuff. I ordered a replacement 300 W psu off amazon and it should be here saturday but I was hoping I'd have some advice by then. I'm just really hoping it isn't the mobo cause I have 0 experience with mother boards haha.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:after shutdown, sometimes won't start back up (desktop)

I recommend never using any desktop computer on anything other than a grounded outlet (I actually thought ATX power supply standards required one or the PSU wouldn't respond). Ensure that the CPU HSF is installed correctly and any add on cards are firmly secured, remove the memory, attempt to power on the computer and describe what occurs when you do so. Any beeps? Does it stay powered?

> If I press the power button briefly before seeing the 'Thinkpad' commercial during POST, it will shut off.  If I miss it, I have to > press and hold the power button during POST (but after the thinkpad commercial.) I think this is normal.  Any vaguely recent computer's power button is managed by the BIOS, then the OS (one it boots).  There are some BIOSes that let you choose how to deal with Soft-Off (single presses, without holding).  Normally I think BIOSes ignore this, letting you do neat things with the OS like have it hibernate or sleep when you just press the power button once.  Holding the power button down will eventually trigger a Hard-Off, and is equivalent to pulling the plug on the computer.  Before the BIOS has a chance to load itself though, the power button immediately shuts down the computer. > I have a T61 (7658) - and I am stumped.  When I choose 'Shutdown' or 'Hibernate' the machine completes the shutdown or> hibernate function, but within 2 seconds begins to 'power back on' again! I had a similar problem before, but only with hibernate.  What it turned out to be was that I had Windows set to sleep my computer when I closed the system lid.  So after it hibernated, it'd wake back up, boot itself, and sleep.

Ever since I built this PC, when I click shutdown by the start menu it shuts down for a second then reboots until I shut it down a second time. LAN setting is disabled in BIOS to disable wake up from it, and the power button is set to shutdown. I also disabled all other devices from waking up computer. Also when I try putting my computer in sleep mode, it will also start right back up to the resuming windows mode, as it normally does when starting a computer up from sleep mode, this button is set to sleep. Any ideas please tell me. Thank you all in advance.

Answer:Computer starts back up when shutdown and sleep issue

Reboot it into safemode and see if it loops from there. If it doesn't then you might have a software conflict

Hi, This is my first time posting on the forum, I have recently purchased a Thinkpad P50s in december, it was working fine, until today. I was using the laptop (on AC with both batteries in) and it suddenly shuts down, the screen is blank, and all the LED (power, function keys, backlit keyboard etc.) lights flashes non stop and make an electrical noise with each flash. I wanted to see if it was a static electricity issue but didn't want to open the back cover as I don't want to risk voiding my warranty, I have already sent a message to my local Thinkpad customer support (AU). However, I need this laptop for university that will starting early next month. Please help me resolve this issue, thank you.

Thank you so much for these tutorials that are posted on this site, there a great help. I have a nagging thought, and it is my hope that someone can put it to rest. Is it possible that sometimes, Vista or even browsers of any kind can revert back, say... after a modification is made to the registry? Lets use one of my favorites... 35. Change the Maximum Download Sessions in Internet Explorer or all Browsers, I would think not, for it would defeat the whole purpose of the tweak. But sense I'm a crawling baby in the world of computers, I had to ask.

Thanks,
Todd

Answer:Can Vista or browsers revert back to default settings after a shutdown.

Welcome Todd,

It would be real easy to give a simple yes or no, but that may not be the correct answer in every situation. I never thought of that scenario and never had a problem, but why take a chance. Download and use this to make an image of your Hard Drive, in the event of the situation that you mentioned ocurring or something worse, you have the image to fall back on.

Free Backup Software: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition - Overview

Keep it up to date and you will always have a good image to fall back on, regarless of the problem.

Background on me, worked with roaming profiles since NT. Never would consider myself an expert but my current setup has been working for around 7 years, until I found the following last week. 
I've found a scenario that is truly baffling to me, When a roaming user restarts or shutdowns a Dell E5550 or E5570 laptop, on wireless, their profile doesn't update on the file server. But if they do a logoff, their profile updates successfully. 
Here's what I've tested and/or found

Windows 7 64bit Enterprise (Domain and File servers are 2012r2)We have E5500, E5510, E5520, E5530, E5540, and optiplex 9020's. All work fine, only E5550 and E5570 laptops have the specific problemOnly an issue for the E5550 and E5570 laptops when on wireless. Wired always works as expected. Tested with different wireless network types. WPA2 personal and WPA enterprise. Same failing result with bothTested different wireless NIC drivers versions for both Dell (Repackaged Intel) and Intel direct. Same Failing resultLogoffs are fine. Roaming profile always updates successfully. Tested with freshly imaged laptops that have never had our standard GPO's applied, still fails. (so I don't think it's an issue with our specific GPOs)Can't find anything left in the system logs that is suspicious. No errors logs when a restart or shut down happens and the profile update to the server fails. Last event in User Profile Service folder is  Event ID 4 "Finished Processing user logoff

This is the second one the guy sent me and I think he sent the exact same one back thinking I wouldn't notice. I tried a different slot on the board too - same thing.

Question: i dunno

This seems pretty easy but,this is what it does during installation.Should the spaces be removed along with the semi-colon or is this a normal config.Just seems a little odd to me..
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\;C:\Python25;C:\progra~1\common~1\gtk\2.0\bin; ;C:\RUBY\BIN
 

Answer:i dunno

What you have is a Windows rendition of $PATH which delineates the various directories that are searched to find a command to be executed.

Spaces are ok for file names and directory names on Windows systems. So, I would say leave them as is.

To demonstrate, you can put an executable with a unique name, e.g. hello, in any one of the directories - i.e. separated by the ';' character in $PATH, then position your command window to your $HOME directory, and give the command:
$ hello
where hello is the executable name of the hello world program that just prints out the words: Hello, world!

I would then move the hello executable back to your home directory.

Unless your installation triggered an error message regarding $PATH - it is nothing to worry about.

Question: dunno what to do

I'm at a crossroads here. On one hand I really want to have my computer built VERY soon as I only have 2 more parts to order, and on the other han dI really want WIn Vista since it will be the next step in innovation and be 64 bit, and be required by most games coming out in Jan and after (I think)

problem is that Vista doesn't some out till end of Jan, and I want this comp done by end of Dec. I was thinking about getting Win XP media center to maybe hold me over but I don't know. In a month I would just be shelling out another $200 for Vista so I would have wasted so much money. What should I do!!

Answer:dunno what to do

just get xp and use it, and don't get vista for a couple of years. i have yet to hear of any games that say they will be vista only. the only thing vista has over xp gaming wise id dx10, and the 1st vid card t support it just came out and is over 600usd. so unless you have the nvidia 8800, you won't even be seeing dx10 in use, even if you get a game that uses it (i don't believe any are out yet). after using vista rc1 for a while, i just went back to xp. for me vista didn't give enouph tweeking power over my system to get the most speed for my gaming. the os just simply doesn't allow for 100% user control over the os like xp is. vista is just too concerned about protecting you and its self.

Im really bad at this kind of stuff so hopefully someone can help.
All i know so far is that when i try to boot windows, it goes to the safe mode / last known good config screen. tried to load the last known good config and it didnt help. i was told that after a windows update was installed and computer was rebooted, it just wouldnt load windows. sorry for the lack of info, but i got nothin... im tempted to just reinstall windows.

anyone?
 

Answer:wat? i dunno

Hi Steve

Guessing it wont go into Safe Mode either and recycles back to same screen?

Could try a repair of windows and boot to OS CD.

Or as you say just bite bullet and go for clean install, but does the HD have data thats needed to be recovered first? if so I did a weird trick a while back, just one of those weird moments when a spark of genius jumps out and as I have Acronis True Image 2009 installed, and a rescuse CD created it booted to that and managed to be able to just Image the My Documents folders and other folders to portable HD, then formatted PC and installed Windows XP again, installed the 15day trial of Acronis 2009 (available from Majorgeeks) on that PC, plugged in the portable HD and managed to drill down into the Image and right click copy and pasted the folders to the desktop and then left the user to move them into the correct folders.

I have checked the ethernet connection on the computer, it's OK

Did I somehow erase the program or driver that would recognize any modem ?
How do I get it back?

You should go to the homepage for the modem, and download the latest drivers. It sounds like you do not have the drivers installed.

Answer:I Dunno's HJT logs

Hi and welcome to TSF! You are not in very bad shape there.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point... Read more

Hi, starting from yesterday night I've been getting these hits from my Kerio Firewall where a bunch of nowheres try to connect to my "Task Scheduler Engine" and the application involved on my PC is c:/Programs/WINNT/system32/mstask.exe
I've scanned the file using Norton AntiVirus but it was not identified as a virus. I tried to quarantine it but even after the quarantine there's still hits from my Kerio Firewall.
Also, at the same time I've found a Download.Trojan virus in my PC and I've deleted it. I am not sure if there is any connection between the Trojan virus and mstask.exe.
As I am a total idiot in computers, can someone tell me if this is a virus and what should I do with it. I would greatly appreciate any help.
 

Answer:I dunno if this is a virus

Hi innewton, mstask is a windows scheduler, not sure why it it coming up as a virus, I included a link to info on it.

http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/mstask/

Also you might try a different firewall, I use sygate it's free and very good, heres a link.

http://sygate.com/

Good luck.

Hi there!
A couple of days ago, in trying to download a torrent I think I caught a malware. I thought BitDefender 2010, my AntiVirus, had put it in quarantine but for the past two days, everytime I boot into Windows 7, before I do anything, some crash-report window appears (today they were 3!) I ran a BitDefender "deep scan" but after some 2 hrs it came up clean. Clearly there's something wrong because as soon as I boot Win7 the windows keep popping up. See picture attached.
Can anyone suggest some solution to this problem?
Thank you for your time.
P.

Answer:Got a Virus but dunno even its name!

I'm posting the DDS.txt and attaching the Attach.zip files. I also downloaded and ran gmer.exe but for some unknown reason it stops working after sometime, maybe it's the virus' effect (I first turned off BitDefender Antivirus).
I am therefore unable to post the ark.txt file. Hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Ok i dont know very little about vid cards and am looking to upgrade my piece of crap geforce4 mx440. My comp specs are AMD XP 1700+ (buying a new processor long with vid card, probably XP 2800+), 1gb DDR, 400watt power, 8x AGP motherboard. I only want to spend 100-150 and have been told to buy the geforce4 FX5700 Ultra and that its the best card in that price range although the top end of that range. Is there any cheaper or better cards for that price?? Oh by the way i think i like the geforce over ATI been told the drivers are better so if its an ATI card it would have to be quite a bit better than the 5700 ultra.

Any input is appreciated =)

Answer:dunno what to buy ?? vid cards

hey i had the 440, well my dad did, we just upgraded to a pny geforce fx 5700 LE optima 128mb ddr agp, it hasn't failed yet and my dad got it for like 110, i think it's realy some thing like 130.

Answer:Dunno How To Describe It

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. Before we can get started on fixing your problem you must change the location of Hijackthis. It should not run from a temp directory. Download and run the HijackThis autoinstall program Please choose the default location of C:\Program Files as the destination.Run the program only from that location from now on. It is essential that you follow these steps or certain important features of the program will not function correctly.Once you have Hijackthis running from this folder, please reboot and post a new hijackthis log as a reply in this thread.

Hello there,As I've said in the topic title, I'm at my wits end with this computer and don't know what to do. I've redone it countless times, (god knows how many) even bought a new hard drive just recently... and still, it's messed up. I've never experienced anything like this though. It takes forever to start up in the first place mainly staying at the windows loading page for about 20 minutes then finally turning on. Then it takes forever again to start the programs. Most recently, when I got onto Youtube it skips every 2 seconds, and now, it's screwing up my actual music on the computer speeding it up and slowing it down (like a program is running at the same time causing it to skip like that). I've deleted all my caches (the ones that will delete anyway) all my temporary internet files. I dunno what to do, your help would be much appreciated. Also, for a while there my computer would freeze up every once in a while, programs freezing, the mouse freezing, the whole deal.EDIT: Also, I just remembered this. When I would sign on msn messenger sometimes it would close it out completely out of nowhere. I'd do the troubleshoot and then it says theres a problem with the keyports. So, then I try to disable my internet... freezes up, and when it finally disables. I go to connect it and all it says is connection failed. I have to reboot my computer just to restart msn.

Sorry for the bump, but it was 13 pages in and no reply.===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another.

Answer:Dunno what's wrong!

Hello macaco and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system on this computer.Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Windows Update site and install Service Pack 2. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system.After all of the updates have been performed post a new HijackThis log back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.Cheers.OT

Alright, so I recently bought a harddrive from TigerDirect which ended up being faulty (Went much slower than it should have) So I deleted the partition and went and exchanged it. However, in doing so, my dual boot menu (Which had xp and vista on it) STILL has the vista from the previous harddrive on it and i have now a fresh copy of vista installed on the new harddrive, so there are 3 on the boot menu.

Windows XP
Vista
Vista

In that order, the 3rd vista will not work, and I do not know how to get rid of it. I don't want it to work, as there's no files at ALL for it to run off of, but I wish to know how to get it off of the boot menu. If anyone knows, please help.

Answer:Help I did something stupid and dunno what to do

You can do it easily just by editing boot.ini which is on your active partition...First you have to tell windows to show you hidden files, go to My computer, on the Tools menu click on Folder options...than on the View tab you have to select "Show hidden files an folders"...now you can see your boot.ini fail on C: drive..right click on it and open with notepad...where it says [operating systems] you should have only 2 operative systems and you can delete the third one (old vista)...if you got any questions just post...cheers

I had gotten a blue screen before this started happening, something about windows had to shutdown to protect some file. However i don't remember anything else about the blue screen. My friend has no idea whats wrong, he had the same problem and dell had to come out and fix it. I don't have it under warranty anymore and we really don't have dell anywhere near us.


It would mean a lot if you were able to help me. Sorry i can't capture the ping sound, but think of pong. Sometimes it is higher pitched, others it is low. But it is really really strange.

Answer:I dunno any other way to describe..

If this helps at all, i believe i have found the error from the blue screen of death in event view. Couple minutes after this event it is a list of programs starting.

Question: Dunno. IP related?

My friend accesses his bank account from home using Firefox with no trouble. He comes to the shop and Chase makes him jump through hoops (call Chase, get security code) which takes a lot of time. We use google Chrome here. So I said I will download Firefox so you can get around that problem. My question is this: if he has Firefox at home and uses Firefox at the shop, wouldn't that change the IP, thus triggering the banks security settings? Does that mean he has to use the same computer at the same location all the time? Thanks

Answer:Dunno. IP related?

Not necessarily, some folks are assigned 'Dynamic' IP addresses by their IS Providers (A different IP address each time they connect, or reboot their router), which would mean the bank security would be on permanent alarm status.

Most banks just use login passwords - Mine has 2, an 8-digit number and a 5-digit number, entered on 2 separate pages. Also, my 'Mozilla Seamonkey' browser offers to remember any login details, I don't know whether Firefox has that facility or not.

The only thing to remember is that the shop-PC is set to NOT remember any login details (usually a tick-box on the login page) - If the home PC is accessed by your friend alone (or folks he trusts), then the 'Remember me' tick-box can be ticked (if available).

I have Windows XP Pro. upgraded from Windows Home. Its Medion MD40100 Notebook, Pentium 4. I reformated the Harddisk/copied everything on external Harddrive and upgraded to Windows XP Professional. Know my USB ports don't work, or do they?

I have a mouse and seperate keyboard attached through USB (i have 4 ports on the back of the laptop) and IF AND ONLY IF..they are connected on a reboot they work. If i unplug them after the setup is complete, they will not work again unless I shut off/ plug them in/ reboot. Then poof they work again. None of these ports seem to work after the start up.

My system will not boot with the external harddrive plugged in, and so thus will certainly not work after the start up. It doesn't turn on and doesn't appear in Device Manager or anywhere on the computer system. Windows XP does not even report: new hardware attached. Nothing.

any help or suggestions would be greatly apppreciated.

Answer:i dunno what to do anymore!

I should also note: If I need to buy something, i will, I just really need access to the external Harddrive as it has all my backup information. Thanks again.

Hi chaps having a nightmare with pc at moment and looking for some ideas please.

To cut a long story short I was playin EQ2 and my pc went kaputt.

At first it would not boot up and kept changing the cpu size from 1500 to 2800.

Then I unplugged and replugged everything and 9/10 it would not boot up at all as in nothing would come up on monitor.

Eventually i had to call an engineer out who charged 20 quid for first hour 45 for 2nd fortunately he wasnt there for more than an hour.

He tested everything and was dumb founded. Sometimes it would boot up then freeze most of the time it would just reboot and then sometimes not even boot at all(using my pc as we speak).

He ultimately thought it was my memory so i slipped him 20 quid and went and bought some new memory. Stupidly guy behind the counter has given me pc 3200 ddr400 i swapped the memory round and it kept booting but restarting as i click on icon to log in(I meant to get pc 2700 ddr333).

My chip is amd athlon 2800
Win Xp Pro
400 W
ATI radeon 9800 xt pro
80 gb hd
On board ac97 sound cmedia

I have been reading on net that it might be my psu but i thought 400w should be enuf. I guess i could buy a larger model 550w maybe.

Or maybe its my mother board as sometimes it lets me boot up like it is now but it will probably reboot half way thru this message.

Also another note on booting up sometimes it read my memory as only having 140mb in or some other insane figure and freezes when it has a stick of 512mb in.

Answer:Pc Reboot/Or not at all dunno what to do plz elp:(

Check your fans. That 52 is kinda warm for the MB.(could be the sensors are crossed and the 52 is really the CPU) Make sure the fan is running in the power supply. That fan is the exhaust fan for the case. If it's not running, the power supply could be overheating and causing problems. A good cleaning with compressed air wouldn't hurt anything.

OK, so basically the computers running badly and its just not possible to play any full screen games (as old as BF 1942 for example) and im not sure if i get many popups coc i use firefox and its good at blocking, anyway, ive tried a few antiviruses and the problem still exists. I know this is barely any info but what do i do now?

Also, i forgot to mention that i went into msconfig and looked under the startup tab. I found a few suspicious files and stopped them from starting. In case you want to know what they are:

my pc crashes when playing games. initially i thought this was a lot of problems but after resitting all of the pc and removing a faulty stick of ram i am still crashing. i cant properly install the radeon 9250 drivers from the ATI site when i download them and i have re-dloaded them several times to make sure it wasnt the download that was corrupted. for this reason i have no catalyst control cente even tho my dload included it. the pc tends to crash when loading new areas and other load intensive actions. i play no games that need a top end or even mid range pc to operate properly. my hard drive has recently been improved - it was properly cleaned before installing. it may have been in storage for upto a year before i put it in my pc but it was stored properly (in a uv bag in a box in a store room with many others).

i dont know if the problem is purely down to my graphics not installing properly tho i wonder if this is because my pc isnt saving data correctly.

games i play: Guild Wars, Anarchy Online (more crashing in GW tho i dunno if that game has installed properly either)

pc specs: 2100+ athlon processor, 512mb RAM, radeon 9250 gfx card. MOBO that supports all 3. windows xp 32x operating system (copy)

if anyone has a clue where to help me start that would be brilliant
 

Answer:i dunno where to start

So have you tested the memory? If not I'd do it, or even do it again to make sure you don't have more memory problems: http://www.memtest.org/

Also inspect the capacitors on the motherboard, see here for what they look like: http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=195

Also for the ATI drivers, you have to use version 6.5 or older, the latest no longer support the Radeon 9250 and older cards.

I'm not too much of a php buff (I don' know anyting) but I know it was working and for some reason now it's not. I was messing with some security settings and cleaning up my Inetpub\wwwroot folder and eventually I noticed my php page wasn't functioning anymore.

I'm running WinXP Pro, and just reinstalled IIS 5.1. I got the php binary from php.net and installed it (ver 4.3.7). I gave IUSR Read & Execute privileges to php.exe and php4ts.dll and IUSR Read privileges to sessiondata and uploadtemp directories, which is what the installer said I would probably have to do for all practical purposes.

The security settings on the wwwroot files all have IUSR access privileges.

The .php file in question uses some output generated into an .xml file by a BitTorrent client (Azureus). The first time I put all the chunks together it worked fine, the php script executed correctly, drew data from the xml file and displayed it neatly formatted the way it was supposed to. Now all I get is this...

The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:

The only thing that has been replaced so far is the GFX Card because it died and nothing more..

But for a very long time now, like 12-8-2013 it has been excessively BSOD'ing. With different error types and I'm really clueless about what to do..

I got a nice list of minidumps zipped into a folder.

I'll attach the .zip.. hope anyone can be of help.

Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Also, Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

alright, so i recently switched from symmantec antivirus and firewall to Vipre antispyware + antivirus. Soon after, when i was surfing the web using firefox, i received notification that a bunch of trojan's and malware were attacking my computer, and that "a known bad file was blocked from opening". then, my computer promptly shutdown and restarted. This happened repeatedly, so i disconnected my internet, ran a deep scan using vipre and removed the entries. I noticed that my task manager was disabled, which i renabled through regedit, and then noticed that running processes included b.exe and g.exe. I then restarted windows in safe mode and deleted from my C:\Windows folder a.exe, b.exe, c.exe, d.exe, g.exe. I restarted the computer, and ran a deep scan again. This time, Vipre picked up only one entry, an Explorer32.Hijacker. I chose to remove it from my computer. Then, I noticed in task manager that I had 8 svchost.exe running, one of whom had a username that was my name, not a local service or SYSTEM. I looked at the process using Sysinternals process explorer, and it says the associated processes or N\A, not Microsoft Corporation like the other svchost.exe.

This is what I suggest you do first.

Make sure you have the up-to-date versions of Spybot and Ad-aware. All are free and available bellow.

Download Spybot, install and update. Then download Ad-aware, install, and update.

Spybot:
Go to Start > Programs >Spybot > Search & Destroy and choose Spybot S&D

Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D
Click the button to "Search for Updates" and download and install the Updates.
Next click the button "Check for Problems"
When Spybot is complete, it will be showing "RED" (RED) entries "BLACK" entries and "GREEN" (GREEN) entries in the window
Put a check mark beside the RED (RED) entries ONLY.
Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED (RED) entries.

Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Hi guys,

Sorry if similar problem had been covered before, but i really don't know where to start, searching doesn't help me much tbh. Ok here's the problem i'm having right now:

All of sudden, when i start my com today, my headset just stop working. However, i checked the headset with my friend's com, and it's ok so it gotta be my com's problem. For some reason, when i checked my "sound & audio device", there's none device found there.

Tried restart, and reinstall driver, nothing seems to work. The only i can think of now is my onboard integrated soundmax driver failed. However, problem doesn't just stop here! I found the driver on net, and when i tried to install it, it keep saying it can't extract specific file "soundmax\sys\cleanup.exe" The file definitely exist in the original rar folder, but it just won't extract that particular file! Anyway i can't bypass this problem, i really need the driver installed, coz i'm basically without any sound driver atm which make sense none of the device work

Would appreciate any helps here, coz i'd hate to reformat my com for simple matter like this! If this has been covered, please kindly direct me to the right link. Cheers guys

P/S i'm using the Logitech USB headset btw...
 

Answer:no sound...why? (dunno where to start)

comp specs 1: 1.63 Ghz Athlon XP 1800+, 512 MB RAM DDR, 64MB Winfast Geforce 3 ti 200, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1
comp specs 2: 500 Mhz, 128 MB SDRAM, 16MB Integrated Motherboard Video Card, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1

router: Linksys BEFSR41 firmware 1.44.2z

problem:
i cant believe im having problems with this (ive taken the cisco CCNA course), but after reformatting the older comp (comp 2), i cant get the newer comp (comp 1) onto the network. ive done the normal xp network wizard, but the newer comp will error out no matter what setting i put it on. so i did everything manually, setting the ip addresses, resetting and reconfiguring the router, but all i can get is that each computer can see the other, and i can access files on the newer computer using the older computer. however, the newer computer cannot access the older computers files. thanks for any help.
 

Answer:dunno wats wrong...

I'll recommend the easy way, even though some forum members can't seem to understand why it works. Install the NETBEUI protocol on both machines, and I suspect you'll be browsing after that. It's on the XP CD in the VALUEADD directory.
