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

Putting new mobo into existing PC, had to buy a AGP graphics card (the other mobo had onboard graphics).Inserted graphics card and powered up PC, but the card doesn't "sign-on", and the monitor reverts to power-saving mode, as though it is getting no signal.The mobo is an ECS K7S5A, and is known to be in working order (had it in my PC until recently), and the new graphics card is an Radeon 9250, which is an 8x AGP. The Mobo doesn't have on-board graphics, so the BIOS should be set correctly to use the AGP slot. The Mobo only supports 4x AGP, but AGp bus speeds are always backwards compatable (so I have read).Any idea what could be the problem

Answer:AGP card won't announce itself

I think the mobo only supports 4 also Volts may differ

Answer:Computers with xp announce to server they're master servers

This is a property under the settings for the network card. I don't have XP running at the moment so I can't tell you exactly where to change it, but the setting you are looking for is called Browse Master which need to be turned off.

Under Accessibility for the Adaptive Keyboard Settings there is an option for Touch Announce that, when on, will show the "key" pressed as part of the On Screen Display (OSD). As handy feature to be sure, the downside is that you are required to "press" require key twice. The first press displays the key on OSD and then a additional/second press is immediately required to then have the key actual activate. Is there anyway to have the Touch Announce on without requiring the two press activation?

OpenX Technologies Inc. (OpenX), the world?s leading independent ad server for Web publishers, today announced it has entered into a partnership with Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) that will allow the companies to cross-market and promote products to their respective publisher bases. Under terms of the multiyear agreement, OpenX becomes a preferred partner to publishers for enterprise ad serving solutions. In addition, OpenX will promote Microsoft?s Content Ads monetization products ? as well as other products that may be developed in the future ? to its existing base of Web publisher customers.
OpenX and Microsoft will each enjoy significant benefits from the partnership. Most notably, Microsoft will have a major distribution channel for its monetization products through OpenX?s community of more than 150,000 Web sites that serve more than 300 billion ads per month. OpenX will, in turn, gain access to a new base of potential customers ? via referrals from Microsoft ? for its enterprise advertising technology and services.
The Content Ads component of the agreement follows a successful trial Microsoft and OpenX began in August 2008, during which OpenX provided invitations to its publishers to test the product. Content Ads matches ads to relevant editorial content, allowing advertisers to increase campaign effectiveness, which can allow publishers to achieve a higher yield on certain types of inventory. As part of the agreement, OpenX will promote Content Ads in two ways.... Read more

According to the latest update Google have launched a new capability in AdSense allowing Google-certified ad networks compete directly within AdSense, which means that advertisers from these third-party networks will be able to compete with AdWords advertisers to show on the Google Content Network.
These new capabilities will automatically be enabled to the Adsense user accounts and a new section is added in Ad Review Center where a user can allow or block specific ad networks or all networks except AdWords.
To ensure the quality of the ads that appear on AdSense publisher websites, Google will certify all participating ad networks for adherence to our standards for user privacy, ad quality, and speed. Some participating ad networks use targeting methods similar to Google’s interest-based advertising to show more relevant ads to users on the sites they visit. These ad networks won’t be permitted to collect data from your site for the purpose of subsequent interest-based advertising, but we’ll allow networks that comply with user privacy guidelines to show ads using these tools. Publishers can opt out of user interest targeting from these ad networks, and Google has changed our requirements for third-party ad serving to reflect this.
Google is currently only accepting ads from Google-certified ad networks in North America and Europe, but this feature will be soon available to ad networks in additional parts of the world.

AVG Resident Shield has popped up several times on my home PC to announce it had detected a "Multiple Threat" with the name Trojan Horse Downloader.Agent2.BIL. The file named was C:\\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe and multiple instances were logged for various applications.

I note that Yeti49 had the same problem and extremeboy provided a repair strategy.

I have followed the same instructions and have run combofix. Since, there does not appear to be any further AVG alerts. Please find attached the log report of which, I would be very grateful if someone could inspect and advise if further issues are evident.

Many thanks

Answer:AVG Resident Shield popped up on my PC to announce it had detected a "Multiple Threat

Hello and Welcome.

A Reminder....

As seen in Post #2 of our sticky topic 'NEW INSTRUCTIONS Read this Before Posting For Malware Removal Help'


Why we don't ask you to run ComboFix from the onset

As stated by the author of ComboFix:

ComboFix is a very powerful tool which when improperly used may render your machine to a doorstop.

We first need to verify if there's any rootkits present and how they could affect our tools. DDS & GMER are preliminary scans. We use their logs to map our strategy for attack.

With these logs we can determine the infections present & decide whether to deploy ComboFix


Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

After running through all the steps, you shall have a proper set of logs.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.
