Q: Solved: Having trouble locating source of spyware on computer, help appreciated!

Hello,

I have a W2k computer that is having problems with spyware. I have attemted to clean it up a few times this morning but the problem continues to surface. The system is currently stand alone with no access to the Internet and some of the items in the HJT reappear, once I have cleaned it up, even without rebooting. I am wondering what I am missing, possibly a service?

I rebooted the system and gathered fresh log files using HJT and getservice, the getservice log is attached to this message and the HJT log follows. Once the system was rebooted and the logs were gathered, it was left alone.

I do not have the CD for my motherboard and i just currently reloading Windows XP Home. I've been looking for awhile and i cant seem to find the right driver for it. The motherboard is a M7VIZ and i believe it's a VIA. Anyone know where i can locate these??

A:[SOLVED] Having trouble locating drivers

Hey mate,
you must know what version is your Motherboard...
Here is link for version 8.X :
http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloa...del=m7viz+v8.x
And here is the link for normal one [revision 1.X I guess] :
http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=m7viz
BTW, you have BIOS update on those pages so you should update BIOS too [if you have version 5.X or version 7.X as you can see on webby]...
Hope this will help you mate...

I am working on the neighbor's daughters computer. Her kids are now away from home so she dicided to finally get it going again. Her daughters really messed it up for her. Anyway it is a Windows XP SP1
I ran adware and caught 1357 items--cleaned them
spybot caught 67 cleaned all but 4
put spyblaster on
scriptdefender
IE-SPYAD
BHHijackblaster
She has norton and it caught I beleive it was 69 virues recommended deleting them so I did.
ran cleanup in safe mode
deleted all temp files and cookies and history right before I ran it but thought it was a good idea to run it anyway.
I put on spyguard
Ewido I run it but there is something on it called adsoft that must have 100s if not 1000s of infections. I can't get them all removed. It starts with aksoft and at the end of the address is like a/a and it goes through the whole alphabit and then goes to a/b and the the whole alphabit and then a/c/ and the whole alphabit I am sure you get my drift I don't know if I should keep deleteing them or not. I will give you the name of some of the stuff that was the worst like elite toolbar and , admilli servicem AproposMedia,DelfinMedia, Downloadwave.SED, Downloaderware, DyFuCa, Elitum.EliteBar,eZula,, Huntbar, IBIS Toolbar, LSA, n-Case, NetworkEssentials.Hopper, Network.SEARCH.EXE, Network Essentials.SmartPops, NicTech Networks, Pwopleonpage, SearchMiracle, Shopathome, Startpage-AP, SurfsideKick, Tango, TargetSaver, VMS-Server, VX2/f That was just Spybot. anyway...

I went to Program files - Mozilla Firefox but there is no file that says bookmarks, do oyu know what file they would be under? and also, i had some notes saved on the notepad in windows sidebar but because mac doesnt have this feature i cant launch it to retrieve my notes.

Alright so i have been browsing numerous forums for around 3 hours now and despite seeing many possible fixes none have worked or i haven't performed them correctly. i know that this topic his been done to death but this is my last resort so any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

so the problem is that my TP-Link Wireless N on my desktop is saying that i have excellent connection to my wireless network when really i have no internet what-so-ever. I have tried pinging google.com in the command prompt but to no avail. sometimes my connection says "limited or no connectivity" and "acquiring network address" but mostly it just ends up timing out. i'm send and receiving packets so no idea there. To check my TP-LINK Wireless N adapter i have connected it to my Samsung Galaxy S's mobile AP and am able to receive internet fine. Then to check that my wireless network itself is working i have connected my PS3 to that and everything seems to be working fine. i have no idea what to do and am running out of possible problems. As i have said previously i am very sorry for posting yet another wireless troubles post but thanks for any help

Greetings all!

So... I have a computer that's now around five years old. It's an eMachines T6216. It originally had 512 MB of RAM however one of the modules died and for a long time I operated with half the RAM until some time ago. I upgraded the RAM and now have 2.37 GB of RAM. I had been doing a lot of things to improve my computer's performance recently since my last system reboot (using the manufacturer's disk). I am aware that they say you should do that about once a year to clear your computer of junk files and keep it running quickly. However, I was scared to because BigFix no longer supports my unit. It seems that my fears have been made a reality since my computer is now very, very buggy.

By buggy, I mean that now while I can spend hours upon hours surfing the web, talking on Skype or playing a game without a problem, as soon as I talk on Skype and play a videogame together, my computer gives me a blue screen of death. And I want to know what the damage is because my computer never gave me these problems before.

I don't use a Firewall. For an anti-virus, I use AVG (The Free Edition). I also have Malwarebytes and Spybot on my side for the never-ending fight against people who have nothing better to do than to give your computers problems a la the interwebs. My computer runs quickly. I would compare my internet speed and my computer's response time as being about the speed of a bullet. I have no problems opening files, no problems surfi... Read more

Hi Enkili and welcome to Bleeping Computer Forums.My name is Trevuren and I will be helping you with your problem.Please download this file - combofix.exe by sUBs and place it on your Desktop.Now go START, then RUN and copy/paste the entire content of the following quotebox into the runbox:"%userprofile%\Desktop\ComboFix.exe /KillAll"This will start ComboFix. When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT logNotes:1. Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.2. I recommend that you reboot your system after having posted the logs in question because many of your programs that should start automatically will not because they have temporarily been disabled.Regards,Trevuren

I'm having trouble with search results being redirected to random sites when I click on them. It affects both IE and Firefox, both Google and Bing. I've tried Malware Bytes (4974), Norman Malware Cleaner, TDSSKiller from Kaspersky, Win32/Olmarik from ESET, the October 2010 Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, and the normal McAfee Viruscan that I've had for a long time. Nothing has helped. I've looked at my C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file, and it hasn't been touched. I have noticed that RUNDLL32.EXE runs every time I shut down IE, which I don't think is normal. My HiJackThis log, which I ran while IE was shutting down and RUNDLL32.EXE was active, is shown below.

Multiple Antivirus
I see you have two or more antivirus programs installed (AVG, Yahoo!). Multiple antivirus programs can bog down your system, interfere with each other, and may even cause crashes. I highly recommend you remove all but one of them using the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.


HijackThis Is In Temp Folder
You are running HijackThis from a temporary directory. It needs to be in a permanent folder. Please go into Windows Explorer, click on C: then click on File > New > Folder and call it HJT, or another name of your choice. Extract HijackThis from the archive and move it to this folder. The program creates backup files that we may need to use later. If the program is in a Temporary folder, files may be deleted by you or automatically if your system is set to empty temp files.

I just bought a new microphone gaming headset (Plantronics Audio 350), and it isn't working in Counter Strike Source. When I went into the "test microphone" function, there was a LOT of static. Even when there was no microphone plugged in, the same static occurred. In the computer's "sound record" function the mic worked fine, but in while "testing hardware" in the computer's sound device options the mic didn't work. With a previous mic doing the same thing, I think there might be something wrong with my computer. I want to find out if I can make the mic work.

A:Help appreciated to remove this spyware - HJT Log included

Please recan with Hijack This and post a new log.

After you post the next Hijack This log, it is very important that you not restart your computer or attempt to do anything to remove this until I have posted the removal directions because the files and the entries in HJT will change and we will have to start all over again. It would be best that you do nothing at all with the computer until you get the directions.

hi,

i am trying to back up data on my computer. before when i had win98 os, it was a pretty easy process to locate my folders and files for the messages under outlook express and copy that folder over to a backup drive.

now, under a new winxp home os, i can still find where the outlook express messages and folders are located, it is located at "C:\Documents and Settings\x\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{C9..........}\Microsoft\Outlook Express but when i look at the folder properties, a message appears that says that the folder is empty. there doesn't appear to be any data in my location folder.

i have already gone under the tools menu and folder options and clicked on show hidden files and folders. i also tried to export the data under outlook express file menu which produces an error message that "The export could not be performed. An error occured while initializing MAPI."

does anyone have any idea where my data may have gone? more importantly, any suggestions on the best way to access my data to back up the information on my hard drive?
 

A:help with locating data on computer

try this

Restart your computer, and then start Outlook Express.
Click Tools | Options.
On the General tab, click to clear the Make Outlook Express my default Simple MAPI client check box, and then click Apply.
click OK and restart your computer.

You should now import or export messages (fingers crossed)

First off, this is my parents' computer and it was only until McAfee was not renewed or replaced with avast or an equivalent that this happened, but the actual problem is pretty serious and beyond me.
When I boot the computer (which is a standard XP Home OS with the service pack) the desktop is all white with a warning message built in that says "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!" with some smaller print underneath. I can type that as well if you need that. Then a window titled 131744 opens. There is also a warning message on the toolbar that says "svchost.exe - Corrupt file". When I attempted to open IE for the first time, all sorts of pornographic pop-ups immediately jumped up everywhere, but even then I was unable to manipulate it at all. I can boot it fine in safe mode, but apparently the spyware or virus deleted all of the system restore points before the infection.
Here is the HJT log. I am not sure what can be determined by it, but any help would be appreciated.

Hello!

I have Windows XP Home Edition SP2, Version 2002, which I run on eMachines version T2875. I began to run into a problem a day and a half ago, which hadn't seemed quite so drastic at the time. My default web browser is Firefox (version 3.6.17) and every time I started the process, it opened my homepage, as well as a new tab to a malicious website (they varied each time). Then, today, both Firefox and Task Manager took an excruciatingly long time to actually open. Although I'm aware of the fact I'm running an old computer, I still ran into the problem of waiting 5 - 10 minutes to see the programs open. The past two nights, I ran a full scan on Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and nothing was picked up. I also have AVG Free 9.0.901 and, to my knowledge that, too, picked nothing up. I ran a quick scan on MBAM earlier and still came up short. I also ran ESET Online Scanner, and that, too, came up short. Next, I ran rkill.exe - same result.

I studied my processes and couldn't find too many things out of the ordinary with what I found, with the exception of windows-kb890830-v.320-delta.exe, which I promptly ended. Evidently, it was okay to do so, because my computer certainly survived it. Anyway, following through with the instructions I was given, I ran all of the scans.

I hope that some help is able to be provided; it would be GREATLY appreciated.

SpySweeper did quarantine it, but now I'm wondering if there's some way of figuring out the source of this apparent keylogger, how and when it got on my computer, etc. I've futzed around in SS and can't find anything that would give me that information.

I have just installed Windows 7 on my PC and want to install XP on another machine. I have the original disc, however, no product key as it came installed on the machine when I purchased it new. I have tried programmes such as "Product Key" and "Keyfinder" and all they bring-up are the keys for Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2003. Can I retrieve the XP key from my PC now that W7 is installed? If so, are there any free programmes that will find it?

If you installed W7, then it overwrote XP & the key that was stored is now gone

You should have used keyfinder to save the key before installing W7

Hi all. I'm in the midst of setting up a mass deployment of Windows 7 using the available MS tools, such as MDT 2010, Windows AIK, etc. The image will be applied to a single make/model of PC - HP Compaq 6200 SFF. I have everything ready but need to identify/locate the actual driver file being used by these PC's for network connectivity. This is required because once the Windows PE environment is loaded it's supposed to look to the deployment share on the network for the information and files, but it can't do that if the network drivers aren't loaded during the Windows PE boot process. I'm trying to identify the driver file name so that I can inject that file into the image that is already created. I was looking at a set of instructions for injecting a driver file into an image and it said to locate the INF file for your network driver. I can't figure this one out. How do I locate the one INF file that's for my network driver?
 

A:Solved: Locating driver file

What's the specific model of network card that you need a driver for? Generally, the installation will include the inf file. Do you have a driver disk from a manufacturer?

If you don't know anything about the cards, I recommend using a linux livecd and the 'lspci' command. Linux is far better at Windows at displaying information about connected hardware, especially devices that require obscure drivers. If you need to get the card model number, download and burn the latest Ubuntu install disk and boot it up in live cd mode. Then open up a terminal, type lspci, and hit enter. Look for a line in the output that starts with "Ethernet controller:"

Hey there all,

I'm in need of some help. First off I'd like to start off by saying that I'm something of a novice when it comes to computers both where hardware and software are concerned. That being said if you are nice enough to try and help me out please supply information in a 'Computers: For Dummies' type fashion because a good deal of the technical lingo will probably be lost upon me.

Anyhow, getting to the issue. A few days ago I had an unfortunate mishap with my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite c655) wherein the hard drive became damaged (as far as I know). So I ended up replacing the original HD (a Seagate 2.5 500GB 5400RPM) with a HGST 2.5 500GB 7200RPM. My computer originally came installed with Windows 7 as the OS but didn't ship with an install disc so to format the new HD I ended up using an old Windows XP Professional SP3 (x86) install disk that I had.

The problems that I have been previously met with that caused me to replace my hard drive in the first place are all taken care of but now I have a new issue.
Everything else seems to be operational on the computer but I can't connect to the internet.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance that you could provide!

Thanks,

~Trav.~

Hi ~

I am working on a Packard Bell computer which has NO literature for the motherboard. I am trying to disable the onboard video jumper but cannot locate it. (I've searched high and low on the motherboard - it isn't labeled.) Any suggestions? I am not having a conflict with the new video card I installed, I just want to be sure to NOT have any in the future by disabling the onboard (which is not working correctly anyway.)

Thanx!

Well I obviously have a problem. Whenever i try and log into my xp account i get a bsod. The only info i get on the "error" is:

stop: 0x00000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80035A9D, 0x00000000)

Now to give more info i think might be helpful. I recently contracted antivirus 09. I thought i had killed it but a last week super anti spyware found a trace of it and deleted it. (I followed basic steps the forum instructs) So i put that out on the table. Lately my internet (the past 2 days) has not been working. It works one morning but after i put it in sleep mode for 8 hours and come home the internet no longer works. So i looked online to see if i could dig up anything. My ie was displaying a address that had megaclick (something like that, it stopped) in it instead of the default google. That from my research on the internet was from the megaupload manager. So i thought to get rid of it. After i uninstalled it i booted in safe mode to run my various scans. I have McAfee, Avg8, super anti spyware, and Malwarebytes anti malware. Since my tango with antivirus 09 my avg has no longer worked.

(I stupidly uninstalled it when it would no longer update during my time with antivirus 09 so i uninstalled and reinstalled it and that's when it no longer worked. It would start a scan and then it would bsod with the error: no_page_error something. i can get the error if it would help. My friend said that the data in avg was corrupted giving me the error.

This isn't really Software related, just really need an answer or two on why this is happening and if this has happened to anyone else.

Well my problem is that my computer freezes or restarts itself whenever it pleases. Usually when I have about 3-5 programs running my computer will just freeze, sometimes only one! Then I have to restart it manually, then about 3-4 hours later it will restart itself or freeze again. But this doesn't happen every 3-4 hours, sometimes it can be days before it will freeze/restart then I have to do the process of re-booting my computer again. I was talking to a friend about this, he knows a thing or two about computers. He says it's the lack of memory on my computer that once I have too many programs running at once the processor can take all that memory at once, then it will restart or freeze on it's own...

I've had this computer a little over 2 years now, and this started about late March of this year, before that, everything was running smoothly, no freezes or restarting.

If anyone has any feedback on this, feel free to reply, thanks.

It sounds like you added some software in March that may be causing this. Did you add new software in March?

Also do you run with a firewall and anti-virus?

Another thing do you keep your firewall, anti-virus and XP updated (I am assuming you are running with XP with System Pack 2 installed)?

Lastly, do you add a lot of new software and then remove them?

Hello, I recently posted because I had a virus on my computer but I ended up just reloading my xp computer instead of trying to have you help me remove the virus. But after I reloaded it, I realized that I can't find my motherboard installation disk. So I found the drivers online (the motherboard is a MSI 760 GM-P33) and I installed them but my computer is not working properly. If I look at that device manager, it shows yellow exclamation points on other devices and pci device (2 times) and video controller. I also can't seem to download anything at all and it's not picking up the windows updates so I can update it and when I try to search for them manually, it won't allow me to download them. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do? Thanks, Deanna

A:[SOLVED] trouble with computer after reloading

You should only download your drivers from the MSI download page for your motherboard. In the Device Manager, do you a setting for Network Adapters?
On an internet computer, go to MSI drivers page: MSI Global - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Motherboard, Graphics and more, download the System & Chipset driver and install that first, if you don't have internet, save it to a USB Flash Drive and install it on the troubled computer.
Also download the Onboard LAN driver, and any other device drivers needed from the Device Manager, including the two Other drivers on the Download Page.

Hi,

For another computer, I have two maxtor harddrives connected via IDE to a P4P800-E Asus motherboard.

When booting up, the system goes through some check with something called "FastBuild" which I have never heard about. I think it may have something to do with having the two harddrives work together. This computer here was bought used so maybe the previous user customized the bios?

Anyway, if I try to reformat as usual, running the Win XP Pro Cd while booting up, and install as usual, the setup files load up fine. Then, when I hit enter (to setup Win XP), there's a 25 second delay where the bottom of the screen (grey area) says "Please Wait..." and then the screen loads up where it should show my partitions and allow me to choose which to install.

THere's no highlight bar - instead, it says
"Unknown Disk"
<this drive cannot be found>
and it says this twice - I'm assuming because I have two of these harddrives - both of which cannot be read.

So 'delete partition' doesn't work - so my only option is Enter = Install.

Then the following message comes up:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer

THe problem seems to be caused by the following file: setupdd.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

I had to press ctrl-alt-delete and manually run the explorer bar, and then I got an error stating that Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have been working around this and have searched the internet for ways to fix this malware problem. I have downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and ran that, removing over 270 Trojans.

Hey everyone, I heard this website is great to ask question and I got a lot of help from you guys before and I can tell you know your stuff. I'm a new member just signed up because I just got a problem that I don't know how to solve.

I have Windows XP and this is a custom made computer so I don't know if that changes anything with fixing it or not. I was surfing online through some forums and then I got a little screen that popped up from my Avast virus protection and it said it found something. I usually don't read it and I usaully choose delete which worked fine up until now. After clicking on delete it would keep on reappearing saying that it found a virus. So I was guessing it I should continue pressing delete. Then a little program came up and I could tell it was a spyware or a virus so I closed it.

When I saw the name I went to add and remove programs to try and to uninstall it. I clicked on it multiple times to uninstall and it said it was succesfull but it wasn't. My screen then turned blue like the blue screen of death but I could still see the desktop and there was something written in the middle which was "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer" in a box. So I decided to go into the program files and delete this program right away from the source.

Hi everyone,

I just recently gained a job at an internet cafe called xxxxxxxx, in xxxxxxxxx, Colorado.

There is a computer here that has had some trouble and I can't quite figure it out.

The original problem is the computer would boot into windows and explorer would never start. I tried the same thing in safe mode, and it still would not run. So I ran a windows repair on the computer, by inserting a windows xp home cd, and selecting the repair option AFTER you choose to install windows to the hard drive.

During the install process it came up with a couple of error messages telling me the computer did not have administrator rights, so I couldn't install specific files. But it continued through and seemed to reinstall windows.

Now when I start the computer, it comes up to a blue screen then immediately restarts itself. And it continues to cycle itself through this loop.

Any suggestions?

Thank you so much,
Brandon

First, congrats on your new job.

Anyway, access the boot menu like you would to boot into safe mode. But Disable automatic restart on system failure, and then boot into Windows. It should show a BSOD.

Post the entire contents of the error. you don't have to post the "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer..." part, just the technical details.

Hi everyone,

My name is Todd, and I'm a college student living on campus with a bit of a network problem.

Let me explain some things that focus on the problem I'm having. My college has network policies for any laptop or computer being used in the dorms. They have a system set up to "validate" your MAC address after a series of tasks (i.e. installing their version of McAfee VirusScan, updating your OS with patches and updates, etc.) all to ensure security.

I had my computer validated through their policy system. If any computer is not validated then it redirects the user to the registration page, disallowing any unvalidated computer from accessing any other website or URL.

My computer's been running fine since the first day, but just last night I lost the connection. Let me explain why. I brought another laptop from home (my Fujitsu S7010) and tried to get it registered and validated on the network. I used the ethernet connection in my room and when I expected it to redirect me to the registration page, it didn't. It was just stuck on "Acquiring Network Address" and didn't connect.

I gave up and tried my original working laptop, but that didn't work. For some reason, the network is "ignoring" any connection through my ethernet jack. I tried other ethernet jacks with my working laptop and it connects fine.

It seems like now whenever I try to use the ethernet jack in my room, I can't connect. Is there a way ... Read more

First of all, I am a first-time poster on this website and I am a huge fan of what you all are doing. You all are saving people endless amounts of stress and frustration!

Second of all, I've followed the 5 steps to posting a log and the only one that I wasn't able to complete was the operating system update. I am currently running XP with SP2 so I'm not sure if it is necessary to roll back to an earlier version, or even how to do that in the first place.

The main issue that I'm having is that my computer is running much slower than normal, especially when I have left it on for a while. Also, I feel like I am accumulating more processes than are normal including some that look like redundancies.

I've attached the Panda Scan and the Deckard's System Scan (extra.txt) info to this post and the main.txt info is pasted as the following.

Thank you very much for your help!!

I had a horrible virus the other day and having been trying to fix it. Well i finally got kaspersky to update and run. It caught all kinds of stuff. I ran the program a couple more times and realized it was a reoccuring virus in the registry and decided to just do a full system restore. My computer wont't even let me do that. It gave me a fatal error and shut down. The virus deleted some files necessary to do this I believe (not sure of course) so I went back on and ran the program again and just kept working the virus count down and having the program delete what it could. Well after the last run through... windows loads up, but no icons, no task bar, no ability to get into task manager, no keys bring up anything. Not even in safe mode. At this point I would be completely content with losing ALL info and just being able to use my system recovery cd. I tried booting from the disk and pc angel does not go from the disk it seems even when i change the boot menu to only allow cd rom boot. I am lost and very frustrated. I hope there is someway I can at least be able to do a system recovery?

A:Devastated computer.. any help would be appreciated

System manufacturer and model?

Do you have complete restore/recovery CDs?

Have you checked your owner's manual...on how to use these restore/recovery CDs?

There are also random explorer popups some connecting some not to the usal junk sites.

Have included hijack this log, I haven't used this before so any help would be appreciated to get my computer back to normal.

Any and all help appreciated thanks in advance.

Hi there,

As per instructions here is the DDS.txt, and attached is the attach.txt file. However when I ran Gmer.exe and clicked on scan the computer immediately crashed to a blue screen with PFN_LIST_CORRUPT as the error. I re-booted and tried again, it lasted 30 seconds into the scan until it crashed again. I tried once more, but the computer crashed again. This is the first time I've ever seen anything like this, and it only occured during the gmer scan. I had daemon tools installed on my computer, but un-installed it, used c-cleaner to make sure it was all gone and got rid of the imaginary drives : I'm not sure if that could be the issue. Therefore I don't have one of the .txt files, but thought It'd be better to post what I have than nothing at all.

I have a very old computer and recently added an Nvidia Geforce Gt 740 1GB to improve my frames, but recently I've had even more problems and I think it's time for an upgrade, but I am on a budget so I'm not looking to toss away the money I had spent prior on that graphics card, so do you guys know of any computers with great processors but a poor gpu so I can switch my current gpu out in the new computer. I'm looking for something like an i5/i7 around $150 alone in the new computer and DDR4+ 8gb ram and a poor graphics card and psu doesn't really matter as long as it runs I don't plan on messing with it much further, and 500GB HDD 7200 RPM would be fine. I'd perfer Windows 7 over 8 or 10, but that's nonessential.
 

A:I'm looking into a new computer, advice appreciated.

Welcome to TSG,

I've edited your post as it didn't comply with forum rues, please be mindful of your language.

What kind of games are you looking to play? The GT 740 isn't a gaming graphics card so that may have been a bad purchase and you may need to get a better card anyways. But it'll really depend on what games, the screen resolution, and quality settings you choose. It might suffice for your needs but you'll have to expand on that and give us more info.

You also didn't give a budget of how much you want to spend.

Also the power supply does actually matter, a low quality power supply will give you problems and cost you significantly more in the long run.

I've finally gotten fed up with slow computer/browser performance and decided to do something about it. I'm following the guides in the sticky threads, and here's what I've got so far:
 
- Deleted unnecessary extensions from all browsers (Chrome/Firefox/IE/Pale Moon)
- Cleared history, cache, passwords, etc from all browsers (Chrome/Firefox/IE/Pale Moon)
- Removed all programs I don't recognize or use from Windows' program list
- Unchecked unnecessary programs from msconfig -> Startup
- Cleaned inside of computer with compressed air. I'm not too good with hardware stuff so I didn't remove anything, just got all the dust out that I could
- Ran CHKDSK on my main C: drive
- Ran System File Checker on main C: drive
- Ran Malware Bytes and Microsoft Security Essentials
- Defragmented drive
 
I suspect I have at least some malware on here given that my home pages in the browsers I don't use were set to a strange Yahoo address.

Hi.

I was hoping to find some assistance with a problem.

I have a computer that I just installed Windows XP on and another that I just installed Vista Ultimate x64 on.

I'm unable to get the Windows XP computer to see the Vista Computer.

When I go to "My Network Places" on the XP computer and click the "View workgroup computers" link, I get the following error:

&#8226; Both computers are connected by wire to a Buffalo WZR2-G300N router named "Alexandra".
&#8226; I've set both of their Workgroup names to WORKGROUP.
&#8226; I've run the File and Printer sharing Wizard on the XP computer
&#8226; There are no third-party firewalls active on either computer
&#8226; Windows Firewall is disabled on both computers
&#8226; Both computers have the same username and password and I'm the Administrator on both.
&#8226; Both computers can ping each other with no problems.
&#8226; I've shared a folder on my XP computer
&#8226; All of the necessary Sharing and Discovery Buttons in Vista are Green (On)
&#8226; The Vista computer, when I view the map, shows the XP computer, see below:



Here's a picture of how the XP computer is setup on the network:



I'm at a loss as to what I can do to remedy this problem. I would appreciate any help that can be offered.

TIA!!

Then all the icons for all the programs on the bottom tool bar changed and then when I tried to open one it just said, "sorry (random program) doesn't support (random program) so it can't open."
