Preferred Solution: help please i dunno whats wrong with my pc

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: help please i dunno whats wrong with my pc

Quote if i remove the cdrom and the harddisk...the computer would wait for both and would not start up....You probably don't want to remove the hard drive, yet. That'll cause you some problems. Please post more specs. Like, Processor type and speed, motherboard model, RAM, video card model, and Windows version. Too much is better than not enough. When did this problem happen? Can you remember what you were doing right before it started happening? Give us as much info as possible to work with.

Answer:I really dunno whats wrong

Your Operating System and Internet Explorer versions are WAY out of date and represent a major security risk. After we fix your current problems, you must get updated. You need to install Service Pack 2 for security purposes.

Your HJT log shows no signs of the READ ME being run, please follow the steps below:

Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support


Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above and you still have a problem, make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below thread to properly use HijackThis and attach the log:

ok, so im not so good with computers, and im playing an online game, called Crossfire, every so often, a good bit actually, i get ping spikes, which freezes my computer's screen, no sound at all, then all of a sudden it comes back and a big burst of noise happens, then i play again.

i read your sticky, and my game isnt in the 'can you run it' program, so below is a copy of their system requirements, and my dxdiag.

NOTE:
-im on a desktop computer which is hooked up to a linksys wrt54g wireless-g router, which also has 2 laptops hooked up to it wirelessly.
-im using comcast high speed internet.
-im not sure if this is a problem, but my LINK light on my modem is orange, solid when im on the internet, blinking when im playing, then right when im about to come out of my ping spikes, it's solid orange, then after the spike it blinks again.

Whats up guys. Alright well I'm building a computer, as I've built at least 3 from the ground up(been a couple years since I've built or even opened one up though) I figured it'd be a piece of cake. I'm gonna try and list as many things as I can as I'm not positive what went wrong. I was assured the components would all work together(reassured really as I had made a list of exactly what went with what). I got an Aspire Dreamer X-II case which comes with a 350w psu. I put in a gigabyte mobo, i915PL chipset and installed a 3.2 Ghz P4. I hooked everything up including harddrive, cdrom, geforce 6600GT, and ram(DDR 1GB 3200 Dual KByte (2x512) 400MHz). I pressed the power button, and the computer didn't turn on but the fans did, and they were kinda jumpy. I thought wtf and i unplugged everything right away except for cpu and ram, then (7hrs later) replugged in power cables to the motherboard, started it up, same thing but fans slowed down a little. I unplugged cpu and double checked connections, turned it on again(only ram and mobo connected to power or anything for that matter) and after about 2 seconds a chip near the ram fried. I took out the mobo and put in back in the box to take back tomorrow, but I don't really want to make the same mistake twice. I might even take back the ram and get a i915P board for the HD audio. I'd greatly appreciate any insight. Thanks a lot. Oh and btw I'm gonna pick up a 20-pin to 24-pi... Read more

Answer:Fried the motherboard dunno whats the problem

Hi m8,first Id throw away that psu and buy a decent one,a great 350 psu would only just be enough for a p4 3.2 and 6600gt and that aint a great one"the ones that come with case never are"The make and specs of it would be helpfull.

2 other power connectors you may not be familiar with are the 12v atx power that plugs in near the cpu"square 4 pin" and the video card power"a standard molex that plugs into the back of the vid card"

You also didnt mention any beep codes,I would guess you havnt plugged in your speaker to the mobo,check before you try again they can be really helpfull at times like this.

IMHO I would take back that cpu aqnd board and exchange it for an amd one,one reason because I'm an amd fan boy,but the other main reason the 3.2 p4 "presscot" core's are plauged with heat problems

look to the right and see how many worried p4 owners have viewed these threads for advice.

With the standard cooling thay can be hard to keep under 70 degrees c and over that they start to throttle,they slow down so as not to damage themselves,you may not even notice while using it,but its performance lost that you have payed for.

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

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.

Ok, a few days back, my pc turned off and would not turn back on. I thought it was the psu and got a new one. I took my hard drive and put it one my sis pc as master but when it came on, i got a blue screen saying something about hardware failure. When i ran my hard drive as a slave, I was able to access all the stuff on my hard drive. When i put my sis psu on my mobo, the mobo comes on. However, when i put the new psu with her working hard drive on my mobo, it does not want to come on.
Can it be that the new psu is not working? How can i test this? That seems as the only logical answer since:
-her old psu and my mobo and any hard drive starts
but
- the new psu or my old psu and my mobo and any hard drive does not start
WHATS THE PROBLEM ??????
 

Answer:Whats wrong with this ?

Sounds like the mobo. Assemble it with just the CPU, one stick of RAM, one hard disc and the graphics card. See if anyhting happens.

Question: IDK whats wrong :(

So i am in the middle of a game and suddenly i lose control of my keyboard and assume i am getting hacked because buttons are being pushed without me pushing them. I turn off my computer and restart without internet. I check my firewall and it says that an application was accessing my computer to i guess hack me. So i click block and terminate and all is well. A week later it happens again except that instead of losing control of my keyboard, the buttons dont register as what they should. i press "f" and it types "sfd" i press "b" and it shows up as " b" etc... I tried restarting, replugging in the keyboard, reinstalling keyboard drivers and other things but nothing works. I plugged in another keyboard and thats how im making this post but i like the other one better and i dont want to ruin this one to the same problem. here are the logs that are supposed to go with this post.

Hi,

I've just copy-pasted this from Bleeping Computers where I first posted this. I'd appreciate any help I can get here. Also, I assure you the minute I get a response from either of the sites, I'll advise the other site accordingly. It's just that I don't have a lot of time on my hands. I'm not sure if this is unacceptable. Anyway, here goes...the introduction is true for both sites:




My computer's started acting up and I can't seem to fix it and can't really afford to have a pro physically take a look at it so I thought I'd turn to you fine people. I've often just browsed through here and found other threads where people have faced problems similar to mine and used your help from there to fix my pc.



Anyway, getting to the point:


A few days ago I got infected. I use Spyware Doctor which detected and cleaned a few Trojans. One of the several effects of the infection was a sudden appearance of Zango Toolbar (something which has happened before) and some other software which I hadn't downloaded consciously. Once this was done, my computer refused to start up. It started restarting every time it reached the windows xp loading screen. I used my XP CD to repair windows after which it worked fine and started up. However, after the first time when I restarted the computer, the Data Execution Prevention screen popped up and stopped init logon and then stopped me from running task manager and then stopped me from running explorer.

Ok so i have sygate personal firewall installed and it tells me what applications are trying to do what and such. An application was hacking me and i blocked and terminated it. After i blocked it i deleted the program. I thought that would fix it but a week later my keyboard was acting funny and i check my firewall and see that the program is still terminated but it was back after i deleted it. Each of my keys registers as 2 or more keys. When i push "a" it types "as", when i press "f" it types "sdf" etc. I noticed that it only happens to my most commonly used keys if that means anythnig.
I was wondering what i can do to find the source of this problem and how i can get rid of this jerk hackin me. Also, how can i reset my keyboard keys? They were clearly altered to register wrongly so there must be a way to make them right. I scanned the file before i deleted it with norton and norton didnt detect a thing, what can i do. i used hijack this and the log seemed normal. Also, i went into the file before i deleted it and there was a 300kb text document along with it that documented everything that happened on my computer. It said when i logged into an account for aim, what i said to someone and when, and when i opened an internet browser and where i went. it also had my pw's when i logged in. I deleted it again, plugged in a new keyboard to type for some help and now dont know what to do!!!!!

my benq t705 lcd randomly shut off, when i turn it back on i can just barely see the benq logo on the screen.

any ideas, is this fixable?

Answer:Whats Wrong With My Lcd

It's normally failed solder joints in the backlight inverter. Is it out of warranty? BenQ carry 3 years guarantee in Australia.

The power board design in that model series usually damages some of the inverter transistors whan that happens - it's not a difficult repair, but in Aus at least the cost of a new power board is low enough that it's simplest to just replace the board.

Double click the alcanShorty.exe file and follow prompts.
It will make a folder on desktop called Alcan Shorty
Open the Alcan Shorty folder & double click the run.bat file to run it.
This will download a file called BFU.exe and a BFU script.
If your firewall asks for permission to connect to the Internet you must allow it.
A message box will pop up saying "complete".
Be patient and wait for the message box to appear as it may take some time.
Press OK then BFU.exe will open.

Execute the script by clicking the Execute button.
Note that you should see a progress bar while the script is being executed.
When the script has finished press "copy" and that will make a copy of the report in your clipboard.
Paste the log into Notepad and save it to your desktop to post back here later.
Note: If you have any questions about the use of BFU please read here.

I recently did a benchmark on both my hard-drives and these were my results:

Scores (HardiNFO 2005 Enterprise):

1. WD 120GB JD S-ATA 8M - 10.99

2. WD 200GB JD IDE 8M - 23.51

HD number 1 is my windows hard drive and I have had it for about 1.5 years

HD number 2 is for storage only, and I got it much more recently (like maybe 6 months ago).

I think this is one of the reasons my computers runs very slow, do I need to buy another one?

Separating your data isn't as easy as relocating My Documents. By default, Windows XP or 2000 put your files in the Documents and Settings folder, but some files in this folder should not be moved.

First back up your Registry; for instructions on how to proceed, review April's "Windows Hacks" feature. Next, if you haven't already, use a program such as Symantec's $70 PartitionMagic or Acronis's $50 Disk Director Suite to adjust your hard-drive partitions. When the drive is repartitioned and you're ready to make the move, close all apps except Windows Explorer. Confirm that your PC shows hidden files and folders: In Windows Explorer, select Tools, Folder Options, View. Verify that Show hidden files and folders is checked, and click OK. You can change this back when you're done, if you wish.

Navigate in Windows Explorer to the data partition you just created (I'll refer to it as 'X:'). Make folders for each user with a log-on: Select File, New, Folder and enter the user name. Repeat the steps below for every user on the machine.

Your C:\Documents and Settings\log-on folder (where log-on is your log-on name) has four folders that likely hold important data: My Documents, Application Data, Local Settings\Application Data, and--if you use Internet Explorer--Favorites.

ok this is my problem.

yesterday when playing world of warcraft my screen froze and everything stoped responding. nothing new in mmo's so i restarted then the same thing happened after about 3 minutes of surfing. then i rebooted again and it froze on the 'abit' logo screen.

so i leave it for a while, get into bios after reeboot, check temps-all fine. cpu is like 33 c mobo is something the same. so i reboot after a while, get into safe mode, run a virus scan and spybot. they dont find anything too serious. backdoor downloaders and the usual spyware i clean off my pc every other day.

i talk to a dial a tech guy and he tells me its maybe a failing hard drive. i did notice that my ati radeon 9600 pro needed updated but it wasnt a successful install for some reason. so then after i mess around in safe mode and clean it of nothing that seemed out of the ordinary, it worked. oh btw i also performed a system restore during all this.

so it worked all day today np but tonight it freezes again. as i type this im afraid of it happening again. could it be an outdated driver? could it be a failing HD. one thing i can tell you is that before it froze the last time i heard a click coming from my hd.

thanks in advance guys
 

Answer:whats wrong with my pc

Possibly your hard drive is going under. Especially
if you are hearing clicking sounds from it. Are
you overclocking your pc at all?

I would go to the HDD manufactures website to
see if they have a hard drive utility.

Dunno why but when my computer was working suddenly my monitor turned off and the computer was still working, so i turned it off with restart button.when i turned it on again my computer loaded like this (that photo above)(there werent those white bars before) ,when it was loading windows, there was alot of those bars too. it loaded .. and suddenly shut down, turned on again and told that my computer couldnt start normaly.. only safe mode with internet(or without it) worked. i left my pc off for night and other day it worked. few days later this happened again ,but now my pc doesnt fix itself.Any ideas what is going on?
 

Answer:Whats wrong with my pc?

Although the picture isn't showing, it sounds like one of a few things:

1. Disconnect the video cable from the monitor. If the monitor is working properly it should display a "no signal" or test pattern bar. If not, take the monitor to another PC and test it.

1. The power supply (PSU) on the PC might be going bad. If it is an "OEM" PC (Dell, HP, etc.) and a standard tower case, it should take a standard size "ATX" power supply - if it is a compact desktop (thin height) unit it may be a speciality size. If you feel comfortable doing the work yourself, carefully remove the PSU and take it to a PC parts store (Fry's, MicroCenter, etc.) and ask them to match it up. If you aren't familiar with replacing a power supply, it might be a good idea to ask an experienced friend for help or take it to a PC repair shop. An good "ATX" type power supply for a standard PC without an add-in video card (about 350-400 watt) should cost no more than $40 plus about $40-$50 for install labor. If you have a powerful video card, a higher wattage PSU may run $80 or more.

2. If the PC is still running (fan, lights, etc.) when the video goes out, your video card (or integrated "on-board" video on the motherboard) may be going bad. If the video connection on the back of the PC is next to the USB and network ports, you have "on-board" video. Most PCs have a slot on the motherboard where you can add in a new vid... Read more

Question: whats wrong?

hey.
here's what happened to my comp
everything seemed fine (for the most part) until a few days ago when the warcraft patch 1.13 came out. i tried installing it but then it failed so i decided to reinstall it. the installer crashed halfway through with an error from something in my temp folder. i tried again and it worked but then the game would crash after the intro with a corrupted file.

therefore a desperate and frustrated me reinstalled my entire windows xp pro formatting the drive. now i have a fresh windows installation with only messenger 6.1 and the critical patches of windows update. i cannot install any program now. microsoft office crashes during the installation, warcraft crashes after intro, simpsons hit and run during installation. does this have anything to do with faulty ram or hd coz thats what i think i narrowed it down to?
 

Answer:whats wrong?

probably faulty RAM. check to see if the RAM is securely plugged it. and wipe off any dust from the copper connectors, with a DRY TISSUE PAPER. DO NOT TOUCH THE COPPER CONNECTORS!!!!

I currently have two sticks of 512,

the problem is, when i put both in together the comp will not boot, but putting one or the other in on its own works fine. I got a message saying that the DRAM timings were out after rebooting with just one stick in the comp.

The weird thing is that this has only happened recently, they worked fine together for months.

XP Pro
MSI-865PE Neo 2
P4 2.53GHz
2x512
GeForce FX 5700 Ultra
 

Answer:Whats wrong wiv my RAM????

Make sure your RAM clock and RAM timing settings are both set to "auto" inside of your BIOS...Then try turning off the computer and putting in both sticks.

If that doesn't work, give the RAM a really conservative RAM clock and DDR timing to start with and try adding the other stick again...If it boots that time, you can then adjust your timings and clock to get what both sticks will support.

Question: whats wrong?

i cant seem to get very high speeds on my 3200 winchester. i can get up to 2.6 non stable and about 2.4 stable. i have OCZ plats rev 2's v1.1, DFI lanparty mobo, Thermaltake Venus 12 heatsink, and a modstream 520W. when i get to 2.6 it says something about a rounding error expected less than 0.4 when i run Prime95.

i have been running the mem at about 2.8-2.9V at a 1:1 ratio and my temps are fine.(mid 30's idle when OC'd).

what do you think is holding me back? i think it may have something to do with my RAM. it is the TCC5 version i am pretty sure because on the left side (i think) it said v1.1 should i give it more voltage or try setting the ratio different. i dont think its the timings because ive been having them at either 2.5-3-3-7 or 3-4-4-8.

anyone?

Answer:whats wrong?

Run memtest86+ to test just your RAM. That'll tell you if the problem lies in your RAM or not.

Also, change the RAM to FSB ratio or the CPU multiplier to set it at stock speed, just to eliminate possibilities. It could very well be that your FSB can't take the high speed.

Try different things. RAM at stock with processor running fast and test it and vice versa. Might want to try to set both at stock using seperators and multipliers too, just to see if your FSB can take it.

Are you lowering your HT multiplier as you increase the FSB?

Question: Whats wrong....

I was given a PC a friend built.
It seems were running into tons of problems just trying to get the OS installed on there.

Here is all the information i can provide without pictures.
I hope this can help.
Hardware specs i know:

ATX 450W Power Supply
Abit KV7 Motherboard
DVD and CD ROM
AMD Athlon XP
Memory clock is DDR 266
Its running Phonix Award BIOS V.600PG
HD
Floppy

Well we boot the computer up and get a black screen. The screen reads:

"CMOS Checksum error - defaults loaded"

Then all it allows you to do is boot into the BIOS.
After i check the settings and make sure everything is ok, and reboot....I usaully get the next following message.

"CPU is unworkable or has been changed. Please recheck - CPU Soft Menu"

Then from here im basically at a complete loss. From what im gathering...It seems the CPU was overclocked before given to me - and is now ****ed.

But how can i be so sure? Since this would be the firs time ive ever dealt with a trashed CPU.

And suggestions would help amazingly.
Thanks guys.
 

Answer:Whats wrong....

You need to enter the BIOS setup, load the Optimal BIOS defualts, correct the CPU speed to what it shoudl be, save and exit. If the settings don't hold then you may need a new CMOS battery.

I'd also suggest you download the motherbaord manual from the ABIT website if you don't have the paper copy.

Welcome vitamin water

I will be helping you under the guidance of one of our expert coaches.
Please give me a little time to get back to you with instructions.

In the meantime please note the following:

Any recommendations made are for your computer problems only and should NOT be used on any other computer.
Please DO NOT run any scans/tools or other fixes unless I ask you to. This is very important for several reasons. Here are just two of them:
1. The tools that we use are very powerful and can cause >>irreparable damage<< to your computer if not used correctly.
2. Commercial scanners, for the most part can not completely remove some of the more "resistant" infections. This makes it much more difficult to get rid of completely.
If you get stuck or are unsure of something please ask for a further explanation, do not guess.
A lack of symptoms does not necessarily mean your computer is clean.
Continue to respond to this thread until I give you the All Clean!
Please Note: My instructions to you are checked by an expert prior to posting. This may cause a small delay between posts.

Hi! This is my first post on here and I've heard that you guys are great help so I thought I would give it a try.

First off when I start up my computer this is the message I get: The instruction at "0x005b0209" referenced memory at "0x00000000" The memory could not be "read" I have no idea what this means?

Then when I open up Firefox, first off its takes FOREVER to load up when usually my internet connection is very fast. But it seems like every time I go to a new website, say from Yahoo to Yahoo Sports or Myspace a Internet Explorer window will open up. And a few times multiple Internet Explorer windows have opened up and most of the time its just a blank Internet Explorer window or says something about some program. My virus scan I use is Avast. I've always ran AdAware and Spybot S&D as well as C Cleaner. I thought I had the problem taken care of but it seems to comeback. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

these problems have started since... i can't remember when. the specific problems are:
*my backspace is crazy
it malfunctions like almost always. when i type something, usually, in a search box and use the key it erases the whole thing i typed or sometimes it closes the whole window or dialog box. And the most epic is when it just doesn't work at all
*the dialog boxes or windows i open even, a simple right-click on the desktop, flickers or automatically closes. i have found that pressing the enter key helps ward off the malfunction somehow but it keeps coming back
 
these problems have been causing me wrinkles, fits of anger, bursts of profanity and mostly stress. i don't know whether this a hardware problem or not or a glitch or a virus but i have "tried" to get rid of it but... unfortunately its still there. i searched in the net why this happens and i found an article, also on a forum which says that it might be malware and there's this whole process to remove it and im sorry but im a lazy person so i just took the easy way out, i installed malwarebytes. it helped tremendously and for a day the malfunctions stopped but eventually they came back but atleast this time they're a bit less but still annoyingly noticeable. all the articles i've found have the similar problems i have but not exactly the same. so im just wondering, as a person whose knowledge for these things are quite basic... whats wrong with my pc? :/

Question: Whats wrong?

I built my new pc, i thought i would of done something wrong, but i turn it on and it runs fine. But when the first screen appears (ASUS/Intel, DEL for bios ect.), It doesn't change, kind of like its frozen or something, pressing DEL does nothing. I really have no idea i haven't built a pc from scratch for a while, i don't really know if its meant to do this, or not. I'm guessing something is wrong, i cant really narrow down what this could be by myself. I would like some ideas, it seems like a pretty simple problem. In another thread while i was building the pc posted a thread called "Did i short it?" maybe this could be related, if a mobo has been zapped by static it could do all kind of weird things right?


HELP!!

Answer:Whats wrong?

Yes zapped by static theboard more than likely would not work at all, that is not in stone though. Unplug the pc and clear your cmos, go into the bios and set the bios so you see what the bios is doing as opposed to seeing the ASUS logo. You might want to try one stick of ram if you have 2, try each one, make sure the pc is unplugged. It also could be something with the video card, use the onboard if there is one till you get it running. Also if you do have an add on video card make sure that ithas all the power connectors connected to it, if any. Also could be misconfigured IDE if any. I would just unplug all your SATA PATA devices till you get it to POST.

While I was looking through the forums... I started to think whats wrong with Internet Explorer 8 . Can you guys please respond.Don't get me wrong Im not putting MF or chrome down.But on my computer IE8 gets the job done for me and its not a bad browser as most of the tech world says.Also theres not a lot of features that Internet Explorer is lacking other than some few ads.

So please get back :?

Answer:Whats Wrong With IE8?

There are a few things wrong with it that are a more personally aspect than anything else.

For starters IE8 takes longer to load up than any other browser. Then comes in the aspect that IE8 has no ability to be customized for personal preference. There is no skins, no extensions, no spell checker built in and so on. Such things are what people want with today's software.

People want the ability to make the software their own. IE doesnt allow that at all. Even with the newly released IE9 there still is no option for such things. You cant skin it, you cant use spell checkers effectively. There isnt much that IE can do that draws appeal away from other browsers, aside from the fact it comes preinstalled with Windows allowing you access the the internet upon boot.

The other aspect is from the developers standpoint. IE8 uses coding that is specific to that browser. It doesnt follow any standards set forth by such committees as the W3C or World Wide Web Consortium who have gone to great lenghts to get web based aspects brought under a single standard so that a website can be designed and viewed under all browsers. This is so that they not only look the same but act the same in every browser on every platform. IE8 doesnt offer this. IE9 is Microsoft's first attempt at trying to follow such standards. IE9 follows HTML5 and passes the Acid tests. IE9 passes the Acid2 test but it is not 100% with the Acid3 test only scoring 95/100 on that test. The HTML5 test it ... Read more

I'm usually good with fixing problems with computers but this one stumped me. For some reason (it doesn't matter what browser I use, they all give the same errors) the webpages have trouble loading. The error are different each time I refresh the page. This just happened one day. I didn't change any settings.
Heres what it looks like after I click search on google:


And this is at my.yahoo.com:


Here is all the weird things going on too:
-Slow Internet
-I tried windows update and it gives and error 80200056
-All my drivers are up to date
-During this past week it gave 3 random Blue Screens of DEATH
-Tried Factory Restore on my router and still the same

And for some reason this only happens on the three Ethernet computers. My 2 wireless connections are fine. No weird errors but it is a little slower then normal. Please if someone could help me with this that would be awesome! Thank you for your time!

Answer:Please Help, IDK whats wrong.

3 different PCs have the exact same result?
Are the Ethernet cards the same in each?

Please re-check the Windows Update error code - 80200056

Connect one or both of the wifi systems via Ethernet - same results..?

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.

Answer:Whats Wrong Now

Hello bikeralley and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.There is one entry with a missing file so let's fix that while you are here. Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O2 - BHO: - {3a64281e-1c87-4406-b49c-46305ad2c4b6} - (no file)Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.As far as computer performance, that would be a question for the XP forum. I would suggest posting a question in that forum and see what they have to say.Cheers.OT

Alright so recently I was for sure infected with worm.win32.netsky and probably some other viruses I didn't know about. So I ran a scan with AVG 8.0 and it found a few things, although it also detected userinit.exe, but me being quick about it, I just healed and deleted everything. So after that my computer restarted on its own, guessing it just crashed. So when I tried to log in a second later it would log me back out due to userinit.exe not being there. So I fixed this by doing a windows xp repair install (a few files couldn't be copied). but after doing all that I could finally log back in. so my desktop got all reset to whatever color i had and a black box saying "your system is infected" "system has been stopped due to serious malfunction. spyware activity has been detected". I ran spybot search and destroy scan and it found numerous things infected and it healed them all. I restarted my computer and there is still something wrong with it. I ran a scan again and it found nothing.

Currently my PC that is infected is not able to access the internet. probably from that "system has stopped due to serious malfunction" message. I'm currently using another computer in my house.

If there is any more info anyone needs please say.

I really need this fixed. help please

Answer:not sure whats wrong

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.

If you have a fast internet connection (broadband), run an ... Read more

Answer:Whats wrong

Welcome to Major Geeks!
Please do this first:
* Please download TDSSKiller to your Desktop
* Extract its contents to your Desktop so that you have TDSSKiller.exe directly on your Desktop and not in any subfolder of the Desktop.
* Click Start > Run and copy/paste the following bold command into Run box and hit Enter.

"%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -v

* Follow the instructions to type in "delete" when it asks you what to do when if finds something.
* When done, a log file should be created on your C: drive named something like TDSSKiller.2.1.1_27.12.2009_14.17.04_log.txt which is based on the program version # and date and time run. Please attach this log to your next reply.

Now:
Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Pleases follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.

After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can ru... Read more

Question: Whats Wrong!?

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 5160. What other information do I need to post and how?

The problem I am having is that videos will NOT play without stalling and freezing. I cannot play anything in youtube or any other site. Is there something wrong with my video hard drive?

I went through the steps of seeing if it was virus related but I was told it wasnt. How do I fix this?? Please help.

Answer:Whats Wrong!?

How much memory do you have?

has this PC ever played videos ok?

Have you updated the video drivers?

Dell Drivers: go to the Dell support site, enter your Service Tag Number and download the drivers
