I am having problems removing Trojan-Downloader-Ruin and Trojan-Relayer-Nextpart. These are both being alternatively identified by my SpySweeper runs, and I delete them when found, but they re-instantiate themselves and I can't find the source. Please note that I had an AIM virus a few weeks ago, and thought I had removed it via AimFix and ComboFix runs (maybe not?). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The problem I'm having seems to be isolated to explorer.exe, that is that when I start the computer, not everything that is supposed to start does. For instance, the small, two monitor icon that denotes connectivity in the bottom right of the screen does not come up, and until this happens (and nothing in particular seems to cause it to happen, but rather it's suddenly "wakes up" at random) there are a number of things I cannot do: I can't use the start menu, for instance. I can't right click on anything or else Explorer locks up. Again, no specific sequence seems to be the cause of the computer snapping out of it, sometimes it doesn't do it at all. In safe mode, this problem typically does not occur, but in order to troubleshoot the possible cause I have had to go into regular mode in order to uninstall some recently installed programs. However, I have uninstalled everything I can think of that I have installed lately, and still every time I start the computer, I have this problem at least for several minutes while I perform this task or other trying to get Explorer to activate properly.

I have conducted CHKDSK, ScanDisk, a full virus, spyware, ad aware sweep, to include using Windows washer to get rid of all temporary files. I have used tuneup to clean up as well as defrag the registry. I have no unnecessary or on the identified programs starting at startup (which I checked using MS config). Short of reinstalling Windows (which I would li... Read more

A:Solved: Explorer acting funny at startup

theseus
I don't have a specific solution for you, but I can point you in the right direction. About a year and a half ago I had the same problem. I ran spyware and virus checks, defragged, and ran scandisk....but still had the problems. I remember having to download a program called HiJackThis which ran a scan of my pc and what processes were running as my pc booted up. I then posted the scan results on a forum and some techs told me what to do. The problem was some background activex controls running through IE. I hope this at least gets you started.

I got two different names for a trojan yesterday and today, and after completely running your ?5 steps before posting a log? I am finding no trojan at all! I know this sounds like a good thing, but I'd like some explanation if possible. I am running WIndows XP Home.

Yesterday WebRoot SpySweeper found trojan-backdoor-progdav, which I eliminated on 2-17-07 by using TetonBob?s excellent instructions. Today I re-used those instructions, but the target files were not found, so I ran SpySweeper again ? and this time it found a different problem: trojan-downloader-ruin.

So I used POADB?s instructions (provided to jack5000 on 4-25-06) for removing trojan-downloader-ruin: downloaed CleanUp!, Ewido with updated database, and FixWareout; ran FixWareout online; then ran HiJackThis offline in safe mode. HJT didn?t list any of the items that jack5000 was told to delete. The file to manually delete (C:\WINDOWS\\System32\dmeue.exe) also was NOT present. Then I ran my first Panda scan.

Finding none of the target files, I went to TechSupportForum?s ?5 steps before posting a log? (now realize I should?ve done first.) Took ages, but the only things found were 1 malware program (Viewpoint Media Player, which I removed in Step 1), & 7 tracking cookies (which I quarantined using Ad-Aware SE in Step 2). In Step 4 no service packs were missing ? only upgraded IE (which I never use ? I?m a Firefox user) to IE 7.

After all of this, I decided to run SpySweeper again, and thi... Read more

I have tried countless spy ware removal programs and tools, but after rebooting, SpySweeper and/or Ewido continue to find a trojan horse that is call "trojan-downloader-ruin". I read a previous thread in which cheeseball81 assisted someone else with this problem. The solution involved running HighJack This and fixing several O17 entries. I had similar entries on the HJT log and fixed the similar O17 entries. The following is the latest HJT log. I greatly appreciate any help that may be given.

A:trojan downloader ruin

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe
http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, then make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish. The fix will begin; follow the prompts. You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

When your system reboots, follow the prompts. Afterwards, HijackThis will launch. Please click Scan, and check the following items (if they appear):
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {48837813-02B4-377D-088F-45B4DF12A64A} - media64.dll (file missing)

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks in advance since you've solved a couple problems for me before.Today on startup, I noticed a weird file that TheCleaner said made some changes to my startup files. The file name was just numbers, it was 49674074977093.exe. I manually deleted the file, and found no traces of it using Ewido, Spy Sweeper, or Mcafee. Spy Sweeper, did however, find two Trojans, adeog and downloader.ruin, which it quarantined and deleted.Now, using Startup Inspector, I've noticed two files that were previously not there, C://WINDOWS\System32\dmcsg.exe, and C://WINDOWS/System32/dmwiu.exe. Also, my computer is running slower than hell. Using Task Manager, many of the running files are taking up a lot of memory. I ran HiJack This, but nothing out of the ordinary came up. Any clues as to what this could be? Is it just spyware? Thanks for any help....EDIT: Now SpySweeper has found Trojan.downloader.ruin again. It keeps re-establishing itself.Here's my HiJackThis log...Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 9:24:24 PM, on 11/16/2006Platform: Windows XP SP1 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\csrss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:&...

When i search using google and then click link, i am redirected to another page. if i use the "back" button it doesn't work unless i scroll down three lines to the original target. If i go back and click the link three times it will take me to my target. every time i use webroot spysweeper it finds "Trojan-downlader-ruin" even though i have quarantined it many times. I have also used trend-micro antivirus, however it never finds a problem. help would be great thanks.

Answer Match 85.26%

With help from you guys over the weekend I was able to get rid of Juan (Vundo ?) but now have spy sweeper reports: Trojan-downloader-ruin detected. I have checked the forums and found several that I've looked into. One from Seaz with MFDnNC helping him/her out. I did not see any of the entries in my HJT log. I downloaded and ran Fixwareout.exe. I am attaching the contents of the report and my HJT log.

I've noticed all day that my T43 laptop has been sluggish going over the internet. You will see from my HJT log that I have several different Anti-Spyware software loaded (probably too much) to include AVG, XoftSpySE, and Spy Sweeper. I've checked my network properties for TCP/IP and DHCP is checked. IPCONFIG /ALL shows a valid IP address from my router and DNS entries are what I expected.

I have one unsolicited pop-up that seems to occasionally show up when I open my browser- > Ultimate Fixer 2007.

I am running another scan with Spy Sweeper now. Please look at the report and HJT log and see if you see anything I need to address. I will update you if SSweeper shows up with anything.

Thanks
HogWild
 

A:Rid of Vundo now Trojan-downloader-ruin

I'm happy to report that the latest scan results using Spy Sweeper showed up clean. I would like to ask one of the monitors to look through the two files attached earlier just to make sure nothing is missed.

Thanks for you assistance and I will check back tomorrow morning for any posts. Meanwhile I will turn off System Restore and shutdown.

Look like Vundo is keeping you guys busy. Hope everyone has as good as luck or better removing it as I did - with your help of course!



Thanks

Ok, I posted a question a few months how I had to click the back button 3 times instead of one time in order for my browser to go back just one page, and that is still happening. Now on every website, the advertisments, not the popups, but the advertisments that appear on the page itself, say "Page Cannot be displayed" where the ads are suppose to be, on everyone, I have a feeling these two things are connected. One thing is, if I reinstall IE will I still have my built in IE popup blocker that came with IE when I purchased this PC? The PC is only like 4 months old and i actually enjoy the popup blocker thats built right in with IE. Thanks for any help!

Hello, and welcome to TSF!

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. If you have Windows XP, the 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).

Hello

My PC is a AMD 1.2 with 1 gig ram and a 80 gig western digital harddrive running
Windows XP SP2 Pro. My old hard drive died the other day so I implemented my sneacky plan of switching to my back up hardrive. However all dod not go as planned since the move of all the programs seems to have failed, sigh, SO I fix that by dumping all the programs and starting a new. However by yesterday it appeared that I have something on the computer I am running Lava and Avg and Lava said that I had a Worm. This morning I spent the last four hours trying to run lava and avg but no dice. I then came on here and read the sticky and have downloaded a bunch of stuff, hijack and spywareblocker (i think). I will enter the HIjack log in next post>

I get popups, my start page gets changed, I get weird .dll's in my System32 folder, I run CWShredder and it always removes CWS.Bootconf, then I run it again and it removes it again. I remove the bad things from the HJT log, and they come back. I haev been running PestPatrol, XoftSpy, and NoAdware, as well as having scanned my computer several times for viruses with AVG. On top of all of that, the recycle bin appears full, but when I open it there is nothing in it, and when I right click it to empty it it says "Are you sure you want to delete these 27 files" and I click yes and it makes the noise that it empties it, but the icon still says its full and when i do it again it still says there are 27 files in it. Also, for some reason but Temporary Internet Files folder has changes from Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files to Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files. Also in the Temp directory are History and Cookies, although the History and Cookies folders also appear where they are supposed to be. Below is my HJT Log, any help whatsoever would be appreciated.

I wrote a stored procedure that parsed ok and I was able to create it in my database, but when I go to create it in another database I get an error. Then I go back to mine and if I was to try and re-create it I get an error now... but if parses fine??? Must be something wrong with my syntax.

I reduced the stored procedure down to the essentials so you can see what part errors out. I'm sure it's somthing with my set syntax:
Code:
declare
@PathFileName varchar(100)


-- Create temp table for bulk insert from list
CREATE TABLE #ImportTemp
(Player_ID varchar(30) , CompAdjusted varchar(30) , Comment varchar(30))

-- Path to list file cannot be more than 2000 characters
DECLARE @SQL varchar(2000)
SET @SQL = "BULK INSERT #ImportTemp FROM '" + @PathFileName + "' WITH (FIELDTERMINATOR = ',', ROWTERMINATOR = '\n')"
As I said, it will parse with no problem, but upon running it, I get this error message:

Server: Msg 207, Level 16, State 3, Line 11
Invalid column name 'BULK INSERT #ImportTemp FROM ''.
Server: Msg 207, Level 16, State 1, Line 11
Invalid column name '' WITH (FIELDTERMINATOR = ',', ROWTERMINATOR = '\n')'.

any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks

I had or have a problem with a trojan or virus. It installed extra toolbars and other nasty stuff the other day. I managed to run Ad-Aware SE in safe-mode and cleaned allot of the stuff, Norton found nothing, Spybot SD freezes up, none of my registry cleaners will run (freeze up, even in safe mode), used a few online scanners and came up clean. I found one registry key that acts funny and will freeze up regedit just by high lighting it (have to use task manager to end process):

Hello.
I just spent a while updating my computer to service pack 3 and getting other critical updates (I have to do it manually and haven't bothered for some time). Now, when I start up firefox and do a google search, I noticed that there's something called Wikisearch (which I don't really get) is on but I can turn it off with the Greasemonkey app. However, now when there's a list of things from the search result, where before I would click on the titles of the search results and it would take me to the page, now I click on something and the url says "find-www.net/?q=*whatever I'm searching*" and it just reroutes me to some random pages. I have to copy and paste the url under the title of my search results to get where I need to go. It does the same for when Wikisearch is off or on. Can anyone explain? Thanks!

We are working in network and have our contact folder logged on the server. There are 5 PC linked to the server. All the contacts are present as we can locate them using a manual search but when we try to search for a specific contact the reply is always “No Items Found”. I have tried to do a normal search as well as advanced search to no avail. This function was working fine until recently even though no new software or hardware has been installed. I have checked the configuration on the folder and permission is given at an owner level to all users, and the problem exists with all users.

I have come to the conclusion that when we perform the search the views change, as i have tried to copy the whole folder and there appears to be no contacts in the new folder however on the bottom left hand corner there are the same amount of contacts listed.....(see screen shots)

If before i run a search it is in a certain view is it normal for it to change views during the search and not be able to display the search results?

I have checked in permissions and all the PCs have owner level to the public folders.

anybody have any ideas on how to solve this?

not sure if this is the right place to post.....

When I open IE, the location of the links toolbar appears as per the initial defualt settings (whereas I always prefer to have the links toolbar just below the menu bar).

Hi there, I need a bit of help if you can. 1st post, so apologies for any breaches of protocol .

I found unspyPC on my laptop yesterday, it's some sort of spyware toolbar that masquerades as anti spyware software. I followed some instructions found here to erradicate it. Not sure how I got it, had been offline for a month, so maybe my security profiles were out of date. I seem to have gotten rid of most of it, seem to, except my toolbars are unlockable in Internet explorer (View>Toolbars>Unlock Toolbars is not showing up at all.)

Running Webroot Spy Sweeper bought a host of other malicious Trojans and Adware to my attention:
trojan-downloader-ruin
trojan-downloader-wareout
trojan-secdrop
quicklink search toolbar
searchtoolbar

my machines running a bit rough so I'd love to get these fixed. Through all this my Clamwin virus scanner hasn't blinked, but ZoneAlarm's been kicking up a stink.

Trend Micro Housecall's picked up a host of other malware and adware -JAVA_BYTEVER.AC, JAVA_BYTEVER.AB, JAVA_BYTEVER.A, ADW_SBSOFT.A, ADWARE_BHOT_SBSOFT, DOWNLOADER_WAREOUT, ADWARE_ABETTERINTERNET and says it'll fix all except the Java_Bytever ones, but makes no mention of trojan-downloader-ruin, trojan-secdrop, quicklink search toolbar, searchtoolbar.

Hi everybody, this is my first post here. I've been using the search feature a great deal, and while I've found several very similar problems I've found no definitive answers.

Heres the deal. Very recently(about 2-3 weeks ago at most) My CD-RW drive started acting up. It is a Mitsumi CR-48X5TE. I have the latest drivers/updates for it. The problem is that it will seemingly recognize and read audio CD's without a hitch, but when it comes to data CD's most of the time the CD will spin a bit in the drive and then either it will not be recoginzed as being even in the drive( complete with red/orange flashing light) or it will act as if recognizes the CD but a look at the My computer-> Cd drive icon/exploring the drive shows the data cd as a audio one with a single track!. I am at a loss as to what to do.
I am currently running Windows ME ( I know, I know) on a 800 Mhz machine with a good 30 gig of HD space and 128 MB of Ram.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreceiated(sp).

-Sincerely
 

A:CD-RW acting funny...

Is this the only CD drive in the system or do you have reader also if you do then dose that one read correctly. I’m asking because it sounds like you associated data CD's to audio.

START | devmgmt.msc | expand Network tree branch | right-click on each device and select un-install.

Re-boot. Vista will re-install the drivers.

Hello,
My PC has been going through a few different issues recently. It all started about 3 weeks ago, when it started slowing down really bad (using 100% system memory according to Task Manager). I noticed that the installation of Zone Alarm Suite that I was using was using a lot more memory than the other programs. After running a virus scan and both Spy Bot and Adaware scans with no major issues, I tried uninstalling and re-installing Zone Alarm with no success. So I completely uninstalled ZA and installed Bit Defender 9. This seemed to stop the lag issues. However, soon after I found that I kept getting "exploit.html.codebase.exe" warnings in BD. Soon after getting these my wireless logitech trackball functionality has deteriorated (ie: initial left click isn't acknowledged, cannot drag cursor across multiple characters and some other issues). The battery level seems fine, so does connection with the hub. BTW, I think that I have successfully cleaned my PC of all "exploit.html.codebase.exe" infected files.???
Here is my HJT file:

And to add some additional pertinent information. When trying to perform a function such as a "left mouse click" on a tab or button it also often double clicks on single clicks. I have checked the mouse settings and all appears to be fine. It seems as if a virus has done some damage somewhere before being detected by my virus scanner.

Hello all I had some help before with this pc and now want some more if I can. I have a Dell XPS 600 with XP MCE SP3 2GB DDR2 RAM and a Pentium D 830 @3.0Ghz I have a gt220 card in it right now and am wanting to know why the computer just seems so sluggish on one of my games I play Warrock and it lags so bad I can barely get 20 FPS yet when I play AVA i get like 60+ and AVA has better graphics so it doesnt make sense to me why it cant play warrock. I have I believe 533MHz RAM and want to upgrade to the 667MHz maximum speed but how do I determine the ACTUAL speed of my RAM. Also would it be beneficial to upgrade the CPU to a Pentium Extreme 3.2GHz for like 40USD$? Is there a program I can use? Ive used CPUID and SIW and the bios and memtest and got all different speed ratings. (sighs) sorry for the long post I just want to understand why the computer is sluggish with these specs. Thanks for any help

Hello everyone. I just reinstalled windows because my computer was acting slow and sluggish, thinking it would fix the problem, but the problem persists.

It takes forever for it to load up windows, and it actually sits on the "Loading Windows Xp Pro" Screen for 51 seconds before finally flickering to a black screen for a few seconds, then finally shows my accounts to log on to.

Once windows is loaded my mouse is very jerky and the sound you hear when windows first loads up begins to sound very choppy as well.

I also have an "Unknown" Device in device manager but I don't know what device it's talking about! I have all of my drivers installed and they are all up to date and all my hardware appears to be working fine.

Not sure where to really ask this question. Everytime I put in a cd (blank or already with data) before I can even exlplore the cd a window pops up announcing that my printer is being configured. Meassage say to please wait while configuring.

Eventually a pop up box labeleld HP All-In-One series with 4 steps appears (checking system, prepare to install, install, configure) . Once it finishes I can do what I want with the cd. One time I hit ctl alt del and stopped the process. got a message that ice 2.5 was stopped from exectuing.

What is this and how can I fix it!
 

A:CD R/ Acting Funny

That could date back to a failed or interupted or installer probelm if an HP all in one driver and software disc was ever placed into that dirve and run. Or it could be something else. I'd want to know if its possible an HP all in one was ever installed first.

You could check the autorun properties of the drive and either restore the defaults or check each CD type to see if the action is set to what you intended.

excuse me, I need your guide...ance.

Besides running slower, I've noticed on my cable modem, the activity light stays on, solid, constantly. It used to randomly blink. Also, I've noticed a network connection icon pops up in my task bar, sometimes stating connection inactive. No network here. ?? Freezes up a lot suddenly too...needs restart. I've run CWShredder, Spy-bot S&D, Norton AV and here is the HJT log. Any help, greatly appreciated.

My mother in laws HP based Windows Vista PC is acting funny. About a week ago it would not let her on the internet. She would the IE icon. Her google homepage would come up but not let her do anything. I had a little bit of time on Sunday. I brought my flash drive that I loaded a .exe file of google chrome on just to make sure it was not a issue with Internet Explorer. Her computer would not install the flash drive so I could not install chrome. For giggles I tried to run windows defender and I got an error message, I tried to access windows firewall and got an error message. I tried to restore her computer back to 1 month ago and got an error message. I opened up her Norton antivirus and It did not detect anything with either the quick or full scan. I had to leave at that point. I told her to save any photos or other files she does not want to lose to a DVD. This morning she is going to bring me her computer. On the phone this morning she told me she got a call from World PC Solutions telling her that her computer was infected and they could help. She declined. This sounded fishy to me. I may try burning a disc of "Windows Defender Offline" and doing a reboot using that media? Let me know your thoughts.

I have a new (less than 6mos) Mac Notebook.

I got an email from a friend the other day that had some pics he had taken of a car. Prior to this I've not had any problems whatsoever with my Notebook. I hadn't clicked on anything yet other than to open the email. The attached thumbnails seem to have trouble loading. I had a refresh a couple of times to get it to load. I'm clicked on at least one of the thumbnails but the pic didn't load so I satisfied myself just by looking at the thumbnail pics. Now, however, whenever I open Yahoo Mail, after a second or two, it bogs down and will not open any mail. If I open mail and immediately got to a folder and open, I can get a mail item to open, but if I pause for a second or two I get the little spinning "busy loading" icon and can't do anything more.

I checked the activity monitor to see if the CPU usage was spinning out of control but it was inconclusive. I'm still encountering the problem. Having survived an infection on my PC desktop, it worries me to allow whatever it's doing to complete it's task so I close Ymail immediately. Other than that, I am not encountering anything unusual about my Notebook's performance.

Anyone encounter this or have any insight into what might be going on?

Thanks for your valuable assistance!!

A:MAC OS Notebook acting funny

Can we get a little bit more information such as the Operating System Version, System RAM, CPU, and browser that you are using? Sometimes I get this problem and it turns out to be one of those revolving advertisement scripts taking a while to load or to connect. I notice this more especially when there are a lot of connections being made or data to be downloaded.

Hello Lord Shamar and welcome to TSF,

Please print these instructions out for use in Safe Mode.

Before we begin, let's move HiJackThis to it's own folder; like c:\HJT. When we're done 'cleaning' off your system, we're going to 'flush' the temporary folders which, with HiJackThis in it's current location, we'll lose both the program and the backups it creates. These backups are important in case we need to restore any 'fixed' entry(s) later.
To do this:
Click My Computer, then C:\
Right click in the right-hand panel.
In the menu that opens, click New>Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder.
Rename it"HJT".

Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.

Double-click VundoFix.exe to extract the files

*This will create a VundoFix folder on your desktop.
*After the files are extracted, please reboot your computer into Safe Mode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode then hit enter.

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

Etea

Delete the following folder:

C:\Program Files\etea

*Still in safe mode open the VundoFix folder and doubleclick on KillVundo.bat
*You will first be presented with a warning and a list of forums to seek help at.
it should look like this

A:computor acting funny

how long have you been having this problem?

have you performed any kind of "undesired activities"on your PC before the freezing occured?

what kind of firewall do you have[if any personal,non XP firewall]

i recommend ZONE ALARM free firewall.

as for the ANTIVIRUS tool i recomend NOD32.

try google for NOD32[currently the best] antimalware tool and try scanning your HARD DRIVE for viruses[and other malware]

deactivate any currently active antivirus tool before installing and running NOD32 trial verson.

this is my advice.

My problem started last week with not being able to browse msn. Then I couldn't get to my bank's website. Only certain sites I could browse. Then I couldn't browse anything. Next my network adapters disappeared. So I did a full system recovery but I still have the problem. Every other time I get on the net I can use every site then I get off and later, can't browse anything. I did all the 5 steps except the last one because it says that dss.exe has encountered a problem and has to close so all I have are the Hijackthis and the Panda scan.

Hi, She is or has used Kazaa and we highly recommend that it be uninstalled- perhaps the reason why you did not get any replies.
If you keep Kazaa installed she will always have problems, some will be a lot worse than now. The latest info is about half the files you download from Kazaa networks will be viruses or other junk....
You can uninstall Kazaa from now till next week, but remnants of bad built-in components will stay on the system. It actually looks like it may have already been uninstalled, but there is an entry for it in her logfile....There is a tool that makes the uninstall easier called kazaabegone> location posted below.

http://www.merijn.org/downloads.html
K-begone is at the very bottom of the above page.
Get it to make sure the junk is all gone, OK?

After you run the K-uninstaller use AdAware and SpyBot to clean up. If you already have these two, just check online with each program for the latest reffile updates, which come out very often:

AdAware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

There are some settings that must be checked after you download and install AAW- go through these steps to make sure you have it set that way:
((From directions posted by winchester73))
"" Download AdAware 6 181
Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

Step 4- Configuring Ad-Aware 6 for your first scan
[NOTE: Ad-Aware 6 has two scanning options: SmartScan and Custom. As explained more fu... Read more

I had just finished some windows updates when I tried to go to my computer. when I do, it will sit there with that little moving flashlight, searching for files for several minutes, and then everything works, it doesn't hang up unless I go to my computer. Also, I can't manually put in an internet address at the internet explorer address bar because it doesn't seem to react when I hit the go button. What should I do?
 

A:my computer acting funny

You could uninstall the update, but that would defeat the purpuse of an update. Could you post which update it was, that might help a bit. Thanks.

Ran Norton and Ad-Aware in safe mode, got rid of spyware and three infected files. Still, want to make sure everything's okay. (I know at least one thing is not okay--IE start page says "about:blank" but it's actually a search engine.)

Last night, I was online with AIM (someitmes i would switch to AOL to check my E-mail or go to a website) when that message comes up saying the AIM service is trying to reconnect because I have been disconnected. It says the reconnection time is 3 minutes and so I wait a while, but nothing happenes. The message just sits there, as if it was frozen (only it wasn't. I was able to click "CANCEL"). I try to reconnect and I continue chatting and browsing the internet. But when i say "sorry, my AIM kicked me off" to my friend, my friend says "What? You didn't get kicked offline. You've been online this whole time. It even said you were in the middle of typing a message". So I IM AOLSystemMSG to see if it says I am signed on twice, and sure enough I am. Right before I sign off, I get a message from AIM saying "Unknown Error.". Thats all, just the words "Unkown Error.". What is going on here? And why did it say i was signed on twice? This has never happened to me before. I mean occasionaly I get the "Unknown error has accured", but never the "unkown error." message. Please someone help me. Thank you.

When I power my computer back up my monitor struggles to come back on. It will flash on for a second while making sort of a buzzing noise then go black. I have to hit the power button anywhere from 10-30 times to get it to stay on. Every time I hit it there the buzzing noise until finally no buzzing and the monitor turns on.

I assumed I just needed a new monitor but before dropping $300 I figured I'd see if anyone has seen this before.

Thanks in advance.

P.s. any suggestions for monitors to by?
 

A:monitor acting funny. Please help.

I've seen it lots of times, never tried to fix it myself as thats beyond what the average tech will be able to do.

Acer has a 3 year warranty on their products, have you checked into that?

For $300 you should be able to get a really nice 24" monitor.

My windows is XP. For a few times, when I switched on my computer, after that it went the log-in-type-password motion, it suddenly appeared the blue screen with full of words for just a flash of second and my computer restarted again. This then repeated the second time and so on. I managed to noticed few words that is something like: "...remove hardware safely... If this problem continue...(maybe)"
What is happening to my computer? Did I overused it and something spoiled inside or virus or...?
Do I need to take to the computer service center for this?
After a few times of restarting, system seems to be running normal again...
By the way, I do have a failing dvd drive. Will that possibly be the cause of the matter?

I recently formated my pc and installed XP. It was working fine for a couple days, after rebooting I noticed it took longer to load than usual. It finally makes it to the choose user screen where I only have the option to choose Administrator. Before it would just boot straight to the desktop. Sometimes it gets stuck on the choose administer screen when I click on Administer user. When it doesnt freeze on that screen it will load desktop, but act as though its the first time booting windows. Example: It asks if I want to take a tour of Windows each time and also when I click on Firefox it asks if I want to import settings from Explorer, I already went through that upon originally installing Firefox.

The pc still recognizes files Ive added since I formatted the hd.

It has XP sp1 I believe, possibly sp2 I'll have to check when I get home, and I had not installed any updates since installing XP.

HI! I have a Dell Optiplex GX 280 running Windows XP Professional SP3. For some reason, I can`t run defrag at all, and Windows Security Center is acting strange as well. My windows security shield keeps popping up for a split millisecond, then disappears. It keeps making a popping noise when it does this, kinda like a popup blocker. It never used to do this. I had downloaded some anti-virus software from a torrent site, and ever since, my computer is not running like it should. I got rid of the suspicious software, but I think the computer is infected with a keylogger, or other malicious software.

I recently have been encountering problems with my pc. After boot up I get a Checksum error- Defaults loaded message. I press F1 to continue and then Windows XP Pro loads up fine. After about 3 hours, my comouter will just shut down on me and then not be operable for about 5 hours. At that time, when I start it up, I get a CPU is unworkable or has been changed - check SoftMenu. I press F1 to continue and it loads up XP Pro no problem, I can get online easily and even jump on the most graphic intensive games that I own. But still after about 3 hours the comp just shuts down, no logging off from Windows just like a power failure. I replaced the PSU already and this is not the problem. Has anyone had any similar problems and happen to have found the solution? Please help me.

Comp is as follows:
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ CPU
Abit Kv7 Mobo
Geforce 6200 Video Card
1 GB Kingston Value Ram PC3200
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro
160GB SATA HDD
Windows XP Pro

Thanks again everyone and it's great to be back! *^^*

My nero software seem to act funny on me by switching off by itself...

-I try to uninstalled from Add and Remove, it also doesn't execute.
-When i try to go into it system-FOLDER (C:\Program\Ahead) it close by itself. (WTF)
-And when i try to going into its source folder (Stand alone file download from website) also close by itself. (WTF)

Did i get hack or something? I have never experience this problem before or something similar to this... Could anyone guide me on this case?

As I am working in any program, my optical mouse from dell on my dell precision workstation 670 all of the sudden moves to another position on the screen. I can be on a tab on the lower part of the screen, say in excel, and all of a sudden it will show up near the file menu. Or i'll go to hit the save button in another program and the pointer shifts to the taskbar and opens a different program in the background. This doesn't happen to regularly, but enough to get annoying. Anybody know what may be causing this?

First off, here are my system specs to get them out of the way.
=================
HP Pavillion DV6609wm
Windows XP Professional (v.2002) SP3
AMD Anthlon 64x2
Dual-Core Processor TK-55
1.80 GHZ, 960 MB of Ram

Here lately, the computer has been acting all weird-like. One of the things that I started noticing is that the DVD-RW drive might stop functioning every now and then if I did a lot of DVD making. Restarting the computer would fix it though.

Then, my wireless connection thingy will stop working every now and then as well. It'll say that I am connected to the router, but the Wireless Network Connection window will display an error message saying it cannot connect to anything. If I disable my wireless connection with a switch on the outside of the computer, it won't even react (as if I did nothing). Uninstalling it then reinstalling it in the Device Manager (a tactic that I have used that usually works) did nothing, as it did the exact thing. Like before, restarting the computer also fixes it until it does it again.

Some programs of mine would also freeze or act incredibly slow on me whenever i try to play them, though that hasn't happened lately.

It may be the fact that I"m not even suppose to have XP on this laptop in the first place. I wanted to downgrade from Vista and go with XP, but HP didn't provide the drivers for XP for this brand of Laptop. People on the web though assured me that if I used drivers from specific model... Read more

For the last week or so my computer has been acting extremelt funny. One day my comp just shutdown and displayed the "no operating system" on a black screen. So I did a factory restore with my official HP disc that were sent to me. Well everything went through just fine, but a day or so later it displayed the same message. So I did a diagnostics test on my comp and got the error message BIOSHD-2, and another time I got a error message of BIOSHD-8. So needless to say I've done quite a bit of restoring my comp, and it doesn't seem to be working. Also I noticed that when I try and let the computer install the updates from windows recommended updates it will get to about 32% and freeze. When I turn the comp off and back on because of that it says in both safe mode, and regular mode "updates failed reverting updates". Well it seems as if though the computer freezes when it does that too. So I figured that there was something wrong with my hard drive, so I bought another one. I hope the new hard drive takes care of this, but I'm wondering if there's anything else that might be wrong. Now I did get mad at my comp a couple of times, and turn it off when I freezes and the screen greys out. So yea!

Also I am using windows 7

HP all in one desktop PC (Model Number) MS227
 

A:HP computer acting funny!

Sounds like hard drive failure - including boot sector. Either that or the drive's circuitry is failing. Try swapping out the HDD as a first step to test. (remember to use an EXACT model drive! Most OEM makers are picky that way.) If a restoration and normal operation is successful at that point, problem solved - defective drive.

If you still get issues with a replacement drive, then it's time to call HP for repairs.

On a side note, most idiocies with laptops can be solved with a hard reset. To do that, unplug AC power, remove the battery, and let it sit for 24 hours. If it works fine, remember that trick. It's a really common problem with laptops.
If it doesn't resolve it, proceed with the above steps anyway, to begin diagnostics.

Recently, my computer has been acting funny: freezing at times when I'm online, or working with my Windows Movie Maker, and the screen flashes once, and it's a slow manner with the toolbar and windows becoming blue.
