Tech Problem Aggregator

Hi everyone,

I have AVG Free 2013, which needed to be updated (i've since done this) and when closing Google Chrome, I got the message that avgui.exe was being downloaded. I did a little research, and most places seem to say it has to do with registry errors, but AVG had never done anything like that. Does anyone have any possible reasons for this? Thanks in advance.

Hi -The process known as AVG User Interface belongs to software AVG Internet Security by AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o (www.freeavg.com).It is a Verisign signed file. The file is certified by a trustworthy company.File avgui.exe is not a Windows core file. The process can be uninstalled in the Control Panel.NOTE : avgui.exe is able to record inputs.Therefore the technical security rating is 10% dangerous.In the event of any problems with avgui.exe, you may want to do the following:Uninstall the associated program Go - Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs (Programs and Features in Vista and Windows7) > Delete > AVG 2013 or AVG 2011If this is bothering you, then you can replace AVG free with any of these Free Antivirus programs > >Microsoft Security Essentials (what I currently use)Avira AntiViravast! Thank You -

A:AVGUI.EXE Won't Start

6 more replies

I've searched it up and found nothing (only topics with avgui.exe in the log) and I've done a complete reinstall, clean and all (avg8.0 hasnt been uninstalling itself 100%, had to go safe mode > uninstall for the 100% clean install after reboot, then ran ad-aware) and it just went missing again today. It never seems to happen when I'm active on my PC(I'm either at work, sleeping or just not on my PC when it decides to go missing, and I have searched for it), and I always get the most recent updates after the reinstalls.

I am running on Vista 32bit(haven't gone to sp1 yet, don't want to format for a clean install at the moment).

Edit: side note, does AVG also affect connections in games such as steam and Wow (ports are open) and if yes, is there a way to stop it from doing so.

Running on XP Pro. I noticed that avgui was missing, so I reinstalled. Now, avgui.exe exists, but does nothing when you try to run it.

Use the AVG Remover to completely uninstall AVG, then reinstall it.

Howdy.

I've run into a bit of a problem with a friend's computer. Every time I try to bring up AVG 2011 (free), or bring up Internet Explorer that I know uses an AVG add in, a pop-up box keeps coming up that's trying to install. The box won't do anything...just sits there. I've traced it back to AVG and this happens every time I open up an instance of AVG. The process (task manager) can be traced back to "avgui.exe"

I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but with no success. I'm away from the computer, so I can't run a Hijack report.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for helping with this.

I was also getting the same error for Malwarebyes. I booted into safe mode and was able to update Malwarebytes and run it.

Malwarebytes now runs fine in the regular version of windows.
I have run a bunch of random tools from an online Kapersky scan to combofix (and may have made things worse as my internet connection on this pc seems flakier now).

I have uninstalled and reinstalled avg to no avail. This is a paid 2012 version that has a valid license until 2017.

Thank you!

i downloaded a thing i thought was safe but turns out my mcafee site advisor and mcafee software let a trojan get on my computer. it the TrojanDownloader:WIN32/zlob.ZWC. microsoft malicious software tool detects it but wont remove it. mcafee dont detect it at all.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Clear these three items in HJT and rescan:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {3745D43B-4A84-485D-8EE9-BC6D0401DBF6} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vtUkIBqR.dll

O20 - Winlogon Notify: byXRkIYS - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\byXRkIYS.dll

If they are still present, then download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and while you are there grab the RogueRemoverFree as well. FileASSASSIN is under More Tools in Anti-Malware, and can actually delete the files while in use. Run that if the files wont delete or keep showing up in HJT. Make sure you update MalwareBytes before you do a full scan

I took advantage of the student offer of Windows 7 and last night downloaded windows 7. I thought that because my laptop was 64 bit capable I could do a clean install to it from the download, which I now obviously realise was a mistake.

Does anyone know how I can change this download for a 32 bit version?

Thanks

Why can't you install 64bit? Have you tried and got an error?

Hello

I have setup every application to "ask me before checking for updates",

Even when I am not using any brower, email or any opther application, I notice that my lights on my modem are blinking quite fast... that is something is being downloded. It has been going on for quite sometime.

How do I find out what is being downloded (or uploaded)?

I use
toshiba laptop
window 7 prof
IE9
MS office 2010
Internet secuirity (antivirus, etc ...) from Bell
Thank you very much

And you have no browser open? And check for new email only infrequently?

You could try disconnecting from the modem and see if any program complains.

In Network Connections right click on your connection and select Status. Watch the Bytes sent and received to get an idea of the upload vs download and how much.

I just purchased a new HP desktop, INtel core 2 Quad processor, 64 bit performance with 8gb of ram, 1 Terrabyte hard drive. It came with Vista home premium 64 bit edition. I had previously purchased Vista Ultimate for a laptop that no longer works. When I downloaded Vista Ultimate I put in the 32 bit instead of the 64.....I am not able to do a restore to go back to the way I purchased it. I am not very computer savvy. Can anyone please help??? Thank you. And what would be the down fall for keeping the 32 bit installed (somone had told me I wouldn't be using the full capicity of the computer) Thanks again.

32bit will only see 4gigs of ram and usually only be able to use abt 3.3 its also a bit slower depending on how you use it. when changing from one OS format (32bit) to another (64bit) it has to be a clean install.

Now about restoring you may have a backup there and available but since you are 32 bit and it isnt you cant use it. If you were to reinstall vista 64 it probably be available

Hi cloud366, it sounds like you have done a repair install. When you pressed F10, did you choose Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

Also, check in C:\Documents and Settings for a duplicate profile. It could be that your original profile has corrupted and Windows built you a new one.

All those type of "custom features" live in your local profile.

THe program initiated a msdos looking window with an error message that asked me if I wanted to abort... I couldn't choose anything and had to reboot... that's when I found it had erased my wallpaper and I couldn't get it fixed.. i knew it was some kind of malicious program...

so i came to you guys and I have followed all your steps... My wallpaper is back and I think I have gotten rid of most stuf, but my computer is still running kind of weird, slow, just not the same....

system running : windows XP professional with sp3

okay, as the title implies, while surfing the internet a tab appeared in the firefox window that said "Updating..." but never showed/displayed anything. After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

I see svchost.exe, services.exe, and system taking up 50% of CPU occasionally but not sure what to make of that.

to get the internet started I tried to turn on some network services but all failed due to 'timeout'

Please let me know any ideas, or how to get started on trying to fix this problem.

thanks,
homero
other pcs are connected to the internet just fine.

any ideas? anyone? a starting point?

I have managed to get a-hold of something that is messing with my system. I'm hoping someone can help me. The first sign something was wrong was with McAfee. It notified me I wasn't protected. When I tried to turn it on it would turn off on it's own. I have downloaded several security packages since and scanned but none have found the problem. Now the computer is becoming more and more sluggish.

I have an Acer Tablet with Intel and Atom, CPU N450 @1.66 GHz, 0.99GHz Ram, running Windows XP Home Edition 2002 Service pack 3

I bought Easy Hi Qrecorder program a few years ago. It worked fine. I had to re-download to a new computer as the other had crashed.

I use XP home edition.The Easy Hi Q recorder is reputable, from Roemer Software. I redownloaded it to the next computer which had been recently cleaned out of my son's user account and all his programs and files.

The Easy Hi Q downloads fine and installs. But when I click on the execute file to start it, I get "DWGTrueView 2010 wanting to install instead, which was part of an Autocad program my son had, for mapping. I can't seem to get rid of this mix up. Then of course it can't find the "source" file from that autocad program since it has been deleted for months. I also tried a clean disk and defragmented after deleting all my sons files.
I just want my Easy Hi Q recorder to work properly and open up.

I just tried an XP repair using the XP disk. Still no change. And it took all afternoon to do this.

Hi pepsiman, What can you tell me about the below startup?

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AsntDll.dll

If you dont know what it is, could you make sure that you can view hidden files and folders (and System Files) and run a search for AsntDll.dll. When you find it, copy it to a new folder, zip it up (this is important) and email it to me (include a link to this thread). My address is [email protected] I will post back when I have checked it out.

To get rid of LOP, go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and uninstall Window Search (if present). You will be given a security code to insert, do so and reboot when done.

If the entry is not there, run the below uninstaller (ignore your AV if it squawks).

http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe

Reboot afterwards and post a new log.

hello all;
heres a good one for the gurus.
i am running an hp compaq dc5850 sff. i have two hdd. one with all my America's Army stuff on it. on one i have the deploy client and game but nothing else that pertains to AA2.
so i decide to start to set up AA2 on the vista hdd as it is on xp hdd, the first thing i do is go to my maps website of choice and start to download the user created maps i like. everything looks good, i choose the correct directory and file and even hit the open folder button to make sure the map is in the right place and it is.
now the good part, i close everything up and go back to the map to make sure it will start and play correctly and it is not there, i search for it from the search window at start and search tells me the closet it could find was the same map but on the E drive, which is where the xp hdd is when i boot vista.
any ideas?

Got a Skype call telling me Skype had found a problem with my computer and I needed to go to a website for more info (supposedly from Skype) -stupidly, I went to the website and was immediately infected with what I think is probably malware.
Neither Malwarebytes nor Avast! can find anything, but this warning keeps cropping up that I can't get out of unless I get out of my web browser.
I am a total beginner when it comes to the internal workings of a computer, so if anyone can help, please use basic English, not techspeak or I'm lost

I'm tearing my hair out!

It's an intermittent problem and I have not yet seen a pattern.

I can work for 30 mins with no problem then phhht, the only way out is to hit the restart button on the case. Sometimes it's only minutes and then phhht.
All unsaved info is lost.

As an example I was replying to a post in this forum and it froze 4 times in the process.

After I have hit the restart button, most times it reboots normally but sometimes it says windows was unable to open and offers the safe mode.

There must be a conflict of some sort, has any body else had this problem?

Help me please before I lose the will to live!!!!

TGHC

check it in safe mode
check the event log and see what is listed as a problem,you probably have some software that needs updating,have a check through this list ms put out

Hello-I have a windows xp (version 2002) Asus EeePC and I think I might have downloaded a virus accidentally whilst on a music radio website. I found that it messed up my internet browser and it would directly open to a website called "partner12.mydomainadvisor.com" Please advise what I should do to clean this up! I have changed the default from the wierd website to "google.com" but it still will default to this website "partner12..." if the domain name does not exist. i used to have norton antivirus but the subscription ran out and i did not renew...I know I should probably get something to protect my computer as well from now on. Thank you

Just a little note, that IE8 came over with the latest updates from Microsoft and I downloaded it thinking that they improved it and ironed out all the previous problems with it, but they didn't! Big mistake!!!! I just recently went back to IE7 because there were too many websites that were causing me problems, plus my web printing was not working anymore for my HP printer and I found out that I could not print any of my cards in American Greetings!!!! I pay for that service and was very upset when I had a wedding to go to and could not print my card at the last min.!!!!! That was the staw that broke the camels back.....So, it was bye bye IE8, I am so disappointed in Microsoft for rushing this browser out to there knowing it has all these problems....Shame on you!!!!!

The files download properly but when I try to run them them, I get the message "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

I have no problem installing programs from CD.

I've recently downloaded a couple files. One is a game (from GOG.com), another a BIOS update (from Dell), among others. When trying to open either of the two above, I get the following error message:

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher"

Another recently downloaded program gives me a checksum fail type of error message.

I've kept up to date with Microsoft updates, and have tried running them in various compatability modes, but get the same message each time.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated, as I am rather significantly tech illiterate. Thanks!

I started having problems with my computer a couple of days ago, it started with an internet screen popping up saying HTTP 404 ERROR considering i wasn't even on the internet became a reason for concern. Since my free version that came with this computer that i bought was done i needed to try and find something else. I was recommended to goggle for spybot search and destroy the free version and when i did this a lot of searches came up so i decided to try the first one with that one telling me after i had downloaded it that i needed to pay in order to fix the problems...well i was not willing to do this so instead i decided to try a different one well needless to say the same thing kept happening to me i continued to download different ones with each saying the same thing i needed to pay! well then my computer started just randomly popping up screens every few seconds. I uninstalled most everything that i downloaded but somehow it was stilling popping screens up at me. I now have this 'system security' that i downloaded but it does not give me an option to uninstall, and my computer is still unprotected. I guess my question is Can you help me?

So I got all nostalgic the other day and decided to download the free version of Command and Conquer. In my haste I found out that the ISO images wouldn't work with Windows 7, but they had a fix which was to download a different file and not use the ISO image. I had already burned it and tried to install off of the disc.

The ISO file is on my desktop which means it's on my SSD... so obviously I want to remove it as it is taking up 600mb's of space. I've tried safe mode, 3rd party programs, ending different tasks... and nothing is working. I searched this site to see if anyone had similar problems and searched for the specific problem of not being able to delete the C&C ISO across google with little success. It may be my weak google-fu, but so far I'm coming up short.

Does anyone have any bright ideas on why this isn't able to be deleted?

The error it gives is that the file is open in System.

I managed to fix my own problem.

The issue was a program that I thought had been deleted, but it had not. Magic Disc version 2.7 was used when I couldn't get the C&C burned disc to work. I guess other people have had issues when removing Magic Disc, so I had to go through and dig it out of the registry.

MagicDisc... not good! How to uninstall it when it fails. | Practically Quixotic...

That's the guide I used. Once I removed parts of it from the registry it let me uninstall the program and then I was able to delete the ISO file off my desktop.

Alright, so, firstly, I know nothing about computers, but I was on MSN messenger, and got one of those infected "hey, is this you" followed by some sort of link messages, and stupid me, I clicked and accepted. I've been reading forums, but I don't get what to do, I've done some research, and I'm thinking it's a trojan thingy, and a leap virus, because once I downloaded it, I automatically sent it to everyone on my contact list, and an hour later, my computer automatically restarted. So for days now, I've been trying to fix it, and I think I know the file it's in, or at least close (C:/system32 hosts, or smss), the problem is, the Hijackthis scan, skips that folder, probably because the thing controls my computer, and, If I try delete related files, it says that I need permission to do so, yet I'm on the administrative account, so I guess if anyone know's what ever is going on, that would be awesome.

I just did a clean install of Win 8 Release Preview, 64 bit. I moved my profile from C: (SSD) to d: (HDD) using a recommendation I found in the forum. I did not move the program data. I wanted to download and install some programs, but when I do, I can't get them to run. They are setup .exe programs. In IE if I click to open, nothing happens. I clicked on View Downloads in IE and it opens a Window with the downloads and if I try to open one a list is shown that asks how do you want to open this file and a list of programs like IE, Notepad, Paint, etc.

I've pre-ordered Win 8 to install when it is shipped.

Can you post a link to web page of the recommendation you followed to move profile from c: to d:.

It appears to be a pretty decent and harmless program that just gives you an interface to change some settings that you would otherwise need to know how to edit the registry. If you used it to change some settings then it may well have helped.

I was surfing the web and I came to a website and Windows made the noise that indicates that a download is complete and I suspect the website downloaded a virus to my computer. I ran all my anti-viruses and spyware programs and it cant find anything. I am wondering if there is some sort of thing on XP that logs all your downloads, because that would help a lot. Or maybe Im a bit paranoid?

Hi, I don't know of a specific feature like that, but you could wade through the Temporary Internet Files folder for whatever account you were using at the time...sounds easier than it is, thousands of files in there...so, since none of the scans found anything, why not just post a Hijackthis log to check?

Hijackthis does not show all malware, but it's the place to start.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. DO NOT fix any items at this time!
You must have ALL browser windows CLOSED when you "fix" items with Hijackthis..
we will help you later to do that. Most of what HJT shows IS NEEDED!
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All, then click Edit and then click Copy, doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....

Do you know what they are called? Try typing the name, or part of the name, in the box that pops up when you hit the start button, then right click on the name and click on "Open File Location"

Or you could look in "Downloads" - Type that in the box and "Open File Location", you should find them there.

Recently - I've been having a strange problem. when I download a photo or image, or even capture a screen shot and save it to a folder, I cannot see it in that folder. I originally thought i had not hit save properly or not saved a file that I thought I had - but when i tried to re download an image or capture it again and name it the same thing - I got a message saying there was already a file by that name in the folder.

I have tried ensuring all hidden files are shown, and refreshed the window to no avail. but when i restart the computer, I am able to see the files in the folder as the should have been displayed all along. also confusing - when i look in the folder after saving...say if I've saved 12 images into the folder from the net or screen capture, but the folder is only displaying 1 image - it was say the folder only contains one image...

how can i fix this so i do not need to reboot every time i want to see newly created images?

Sounds like a view issue on the folder itself, to be honest.

Hello tangodelta22Welcome to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum, you posted two other topics , a fix was posted and you never replied back, we do not have the manpower and resources to analyze your log , work up a fix and to get no reply from you, there are to many people with infected computers that need help. You have other issues on this system besides Mbs Billing, you are also infected with the SDBot worm The reason your infected with MBS Billing is because you or someone that used your computer accessed a porn site, gained entry into the site and did not read the disclosure to cancel the account in 3 days and now your being billed for it, deny it if you like but this is the only way you got infected with this .This is difficult to say the least to remove, sometimes a reformat is needed, if you have not resolved this then post a new HJT log and lets see what we can do to help you.

Hey all,

Sorry I'm new to the forum, hopefully this is the right place to put this.

I've just upgraded my Dell XPS 420 to windows 7-32bit Home Premium from vista and now any time I try and install a program from the internet (even things like iTunes or Firefox) I'm runnig into problems.

Once I've downloaded any set-up file I click on it and the user account asks if I want to allow the program access. Once I click yes it thinks about it for a bit and then nothing happens.

I've tried running them as administrator and in compatability mode. I've also tried unblocking them in the properties and even re-downloading and installing without any user account settings or firewall but nothing works.

I even thought it might be a bad install of Windows so I formatted my hard drive and tried again but still no luck.

Thanks
Nemo

I suspect you have a DEP problem. Can you go into event viewer by typing event viewer in search. Go to the windows logs>application tab. Look for errors involving app crash, app hang, and anything containing the name of one of the failed files (like itunes or whatever) There will be a ton of them. errors have red in the left hand column. when you find things that you think fit not the event ID and source.

Are you refering to Windows Updates?

If you delete them however, the update history log is destroyed.

Or at least that was my understanding.

Hello all.
I am a newbie to vista. In November I bought a Dell Inspiron 1525.
The other day i was playing an online poker game (multi player) then the sound stopped
working. After a few seconds i get a pop up saying i needed to download the latest
sound driver. and i did and the sound did come back after restarting.
I thought to myself .. this is great, vista tells ya when drivers need updating.
now spybot keeps telling me that new startup values have changed.
Startup is like Direct TV during a hurricane but only for a couple of seconds.
I chat with the Dell Techs and they wont help becouse i bought the laptop at
Ive always tried to keep things updated and drivers have been a real pain.
Should a new laptop already need driver updates? How do i know when a driver needs
updating?
I use system mechanic pro. firewall antivirus and all are up to date
spybot w/tea timer. maybe the warning signs were there but i missed it.
can someone give me some direction.

I first  saw this document on the website on October 13 2015. I am trying to find when exactly the document was uploaded to the web. How would I do that? Is it in fact technically possible?

You might try asking the website owner if they have a log from the website server showing when the file was uploaded.

What happens if I download and install an application TWICE? I am looking at a vendors suggestion. I am having a problem and the vendor suggests that I download and install WINDOWS LIVE MAIL. I think I have it installed already.
1-how can I tell if I have it already?

My OS is Windows 7

If you already have the software installed, when you run the install program it will probably have the option to "Repair" or "Modify".

Now, if you do download a newer version, there is a possibility you can have them both installed at the same time.

Can I ask a really stupid question?
It's about locating downloaded files. Not the ones where I select save and then select a folder but the ones which don't offer that. For example right now Java is downloading but the files are not going where the existing Java files are (C:/Program Files/Java).
My question: how can I find out where files have downloaded to?

If you know the name of the file, even partial name. You can do a Search. If you only know the extension, for Java it is .jar or .idx, you can search using a wild card (search: *.jar) Java files are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\yourprofilename under .java, .javaws or jpl_cahce folders. Be sure you are showing Hidden Files and Folders.

Im fairly sure I have a virus on my laptop. Internet explorer won't load at all but Firefox will. Firefox acts normally until I try to go to a web page that has anything to do with virus software or virus removal, hence having to type this from my iPhone as it won't even let me access this site. As I say, any other sites load as usual. Any ideas?

Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)

Hi. I have a mustek scanner to which I have had to download the software for (reformatted pc and now the original installation cd will not run as kids damaged it, BLESS).
On the website I downloaded them from it stated 'download all 5 files from web onto pc's hard disc under same directory'. I did not do this as I didn't know what it meant ( thought I would play and work it out but I'm just too stupid).
When I click on first file it starts and then asks me to insert next disc because they are not in this said directory,all being separate.
Can I now make/find or whatever this directory and move them into it and how or must I first make/find this directory and and download them again directly into this directory and how?
Please be gentle with explaination/terminology as as you have prob' gathered my pc skills are more than limited!!

Hi Steve1ramsey,
First of all, there is nothing such as "too stupid".
I would rather say that we all start somewhere.

If you remeber the name of the folder you created and put the different files in you only need to change the last part of the path.

Eg. You copy the 5 files in different folder, let's call them "Folder 1", "Folder 2", "Folder 3" etc.
Then you start the Setup from Folder 1.
Later it asks you for disk 2.
You can see the whole path to the Setup, like C:\driversfolder\Folder 1\
You just change "Folder 1" to "Folder 2" and then press OK.

That should do it. In other feel free to ask again
Good luck!

Still trying to resolve issues with IE8. Looking at downloaded controls I see three instances of Java Plug-in. All installed at the same time when I installed the latest version of Java.

Is this normal? If I remove one (and then two) will it remove all of them? Should I just disable two?

Then looking at "run without permissions" I see even more instances of Java Plug-n.

I do want to keep Java Plug-in but wonder why I have so many of the same?

Those three seam to be the same. If it was my computer I would remove all Java and get a fresh download of Java. I think this might answer all your questions.

Hi everyone,
New user to SevenForums.

For the longest time we did not have IE on our HP Smart Touch. We would use Firefox. Well, I needed to get IE 10 installed. I downloaded IE 10 from MS and installed. I made sure the Turn Windows Features On/Off from Control Panel had IE selected. However, after I went through the installation, IE 10 was not available. It is showing as an installed update to Windows but does not show in the Control Panel>Program and Features.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get IE running? or how I can check what may be disabling it?

I do not know how IE was removed and unavailable to begin with.

Thanks for any help.

Okay, I did a dumb thing. I actually wanted to transfer my Carbonite account to a new computer. It is a laptop with a 40 Gig of HD. I realized (perhaps too late) that I selected "Reinstall" instead of Transfer My Account" and that my Carbonite files were larger than the laptop could handle. Well I stopped the downloading of files when the computer said that it had no more room. Later the computer screen went black (actually light gray) and the lights were lit up showing that it was reading or trying to read the files it had. It never completed it's boot up.

I tried to go in and reboot it into a Safe mode, but it won't let me. Says it can't go into the Safe Mode.

So, is there ANY way to save my hide and get this back?

I don't have an answer for you (yet) but I did go ahead and mark it unsolved for you.

I was on a website I'd never been on before, and I clicked a link to download a torrent. However, it actually downloaded a .exe file. Not thinking, I opened it, and as I expected, nothing happened. About a minute later, my computer starts opening windows in Internet Explorer (even though I use Firefox) with adverts. I also keep getting notifications saying (something).exe is not working, such as vhr.exe or mas.exe. I am currently running a virus scan (with AVG), but I'm not sure it will detect it, as I opened an .exe file myself. Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of this? The file is gone now, and I cannot remember what it is called.
