Regedit, Task Manager close immediately!
I've run Spy-Bot, AdAware, Norton 2004. Some forum questions are similar, but items they were asked to get fixed in their HijackThis logs are not listed in my logs.
(Someone in my house did recently click on an IM Message with a fake message, which then started propagating malicious fake away messages for my family member. I'm not sure if the Norton virus scan took complete care of the IM problem or not.)(I also installed Service Pack 2 a couple of weeks ago for my XP computer.)

Please Help!

Here is the HijackThis log:

I have a PC that, when I log in, doesn't show any desktop icons. Hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't bring up the task manager. If I right-click on the desktop, no menu appears. Also, instead of the list of users appearing after boot-up, it's the single box that prompts for username and password. If any of the other users of the machine log in, their background picture shows up briefly, but then they are immediately loged out.I can start up in safe mode (and when I do the list of users, including Administrator, is there), but when I log in I still don't get desktop icons. Hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del (in Safe mode) brings up a task manager window with no top section. There's no title bar (which would normally say "Windows Task Manager" and have the minimize, maximize, and close buttons on it). There are also no tabs (normally would have Applications, Process, Performance, and Networking). Also, at the bottom it has the three buttons: End Task, Switch To, and New Task..., but nothing below that (i.e. no process count, CPU usage, or Commit Charge). Using the New Task... and browsing, I was able to run DSS, which runs a version of HijackThis (I couldn't find a direct copy of HijackThis to run).

Hey,

Earlier today, I closed my Opera browser, then tried several times to get it to reopen, but for some reason it wouldn't. When I opened up Task Manager to see what was up, then I realized...it was only staying on the Processes list for one or two seconds before disappearing!

So I went to Firefox (which for some reason was working) and installed Google Chrome. That was successful, but the first time I tried opening it, it had the same issues Opera was having...stayed on the Processes list for one/two seconds, then disappeared.

I could find NO threads similar to mine anywhere...could you help please?

Hi Pav...
Man that sounds like possible virus activity. If you don't have a scanner you know better =) .... get your scanner updated with the latest and reboot into SAFE mode. Do a thorough scan.

I'll cut to the point. I got a virus from a file I downloaded from Kazaa Lite. AVG Anti-Virus Resident Shield did not stop the virus from infecting my system, which upset me a great deal. So, enough chatter. Let's get to diagnosing and resolving.
Symptoms

- Task manager and registry editor close immediately (less than one second) after they are opened
- Task manager and registry editor both open just fine in Safe Mode
- Task manager works fine when I copy taskmgr.exe to taskmgr.com and run the .com file. Same goes for regedit.exe and the regedit.com clone
- Experiencing the following problems as reported on the Symantec Security Response report on W32.Spybot.Worm:

Creates and shares a folder on the KaZaA file-sharing network, by adding the following registry value:

"dir0"="012345:<configurable path>"

to the registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\KAZAA\LocalContent

Copies itself to the configured path as filenames designed to trick other users into downloading and executing the worm.
Click to expand...

Methods Proven Ineffective to Resolve Problem

- Found and deleted all files created in the aforementioned generated Kazaa share folder, with the help of AVG Anti-Virus
- Deleted generated Kazaa share folder (C:\WINNT\system32\shellext)
- Ran partial scans on suspected directories using Trend Micro Housecall
- Ran full scan using Panda Software ActiveScan. NOTE: This scan did detect and remove a virus, but did not resolve the prob... Read more

At my wits end here. Initially figured that I had TDSS or a TDL4 variant, ran TDSSkiller which detected and removed it, then combofix, on reboot am still infected. Ran malwarebytes, superantispyware, the microsoft malicious software removal tool as well to no avail. Ran a MBR checker and determined that the MBR was infected, so I used an XP cd, booted into the recovery console, wrote a new mbr, immediately booted into safe mode and ran combofix again; still infected when xp loaded up. I couldn't attach a DDS log as it keeps closing, so I have attached a hijack this log instead.

Other behavior I've noticed:

*Malware creates a random .exe file in either \WINDOWS, or \Documents and Settings with a gold & red colored shield icon, with a random filename such as 'svcproxyutil.exe' or 'xmlcheckapp'
*Creates files starting from FY1.tmp all the way up to FY7.tmp
*On delete of the suspicious randomly named .exe the file is immediately re-created by explorer.exe or services.exe (I checked this using the old sysinternals filemon tool)
*Process Explorer is also closed immediately when opened unless I rename the .exe, in which case it will run.

More data needed

Which OS are you using? Year of release? Have you web-updated it?

Sounds like a virus. That happened to me a few times and it was always a virus. If your OS is out of date you may have some open ports allowing infection to occur every time you hook up to the web, no matter how many residents are turned on.

Have you tried killing processes, or shutting down services if XP, updating the OS, etc.?

Hi --

I have a serious problem here - need your help !

I use a Win XP SP 2 - Laptop -
Recently I had an issue wherein the OS does not allow me to Install any programs.
I thought it is an OS glitch and here is what I have done.

** Formatted C: drive and Installed the New copy of OS.
** Still issue Persits
** Learned that soon after installing the OS and drivers, the task manager is disabled and i am not able to Install any Programs.
** The Installation window closes itself
** Checked the forum to Troublesoot on this issue.
** Solution says to work with the system registry to fix this issue
** Soon after i open the system registry - and checking on what to do next - the window closes immediately
** issue is : Application window closes itself
** Donot have any AV or Malware software installed to scan the PC - unable to install the Softwares as well ( as the Window closes itself while installation)
** Wanted to Fix this issue without losing any data which I saved in D: E : and F: drives.

KINDLY ASSIST ON HOW TO PROCEED WITH THIS ISSUE and FIX IT.
 

A:Task Manager Disabled - Each window Closes Itself- Cannot Install any Software

Your saying that the Operating System won't let you install any software. Well thats a new one for me. What I think is that you might have some sort of junk software bundled with your operating system.

Is the disk you are using Legit and is it a pure windows CD or DVD.

I ask this because some shady people sell pirated copies and might bundle the malware with your computer. I know this because I got a "free antivirus" program the wouldn't let me open anything but Internet explorer.

To find out if this is the case try booting your computer in safe mode (press F5 like crazy on boot-up). Then look and the startup menu in msconfig.

To get to that go to the start menu and go to "RUN"
Type in "msconfig", but without the quotations.
Look at the startup screen.
Look at all of the boxes for something suspicious and then look at the Command column.
If it isn't in the windows directory do a quick google search on the name of the start up item and see if it is any malware, if it is try to delete it in Safe mode.

If you can't open msconfig try this solution.

Go to a friends house or the local library with a usb flash drive and download an antivirus program that runs inside the drive, after that go back to your computer and attempt to run the program.

Hope this helps.

Hello, here's the deal. Two days ago, I noticed 2 problems/changes with the operation of my OS. 1st, I started hearing multiple clicking noises while using IE7, (it seemed like it was trying to load instances of something, but nothing popped up, some may have coincided with banner ads), however, that did not happen previously. The click noise is one in the windows default sounds, but not the one I usually only hear once when clicking a link. I checked if my sound profile had been changed and saw nothing different. The clicks also happen randomly in explorer with no open network connections, say sometimes when I'm simply navigating folders or opening a program. I've been running IE7 for months and this behavior is definately new. Does not happen in Firefox.

Then 2nd, in order to start investigating the issue, while administrator, I opened the task manager and opened the processes tab. When I clicked "show processes from all users" button the UAC opens for confirmation, I confirm the action, and then the task manager just closes, and does not reopen to show everything. That never happened before either. I've tried using the task manager from both the task bar and ctrl-alt-del with the same results, however, when I navigate to taskmanger.exe in win\sys32 folder and right click and run as administrator, it opens automatically showing processes from all users. Hmmmm...

After searching the web to no avail for a possible OS bug or any related articles, and... Read more

Other symptoms. IE is slowed down, and loads much slower. Clicks I mentioned seem very random.

Saw qksz.net trying to load something in browser bottom bar, just now and edited this message to reflect such. Googled it and seems like this might be related to malware.

-Taskmanager disable by "administrator". pft.
-Nod32 my anti virus closes before it finishes scanning, last's less than a minute, sometimes doesn't launch at all.
-Normal safe mode doesnt help any of the above symptoms.
-Computer slows down at random as if all resources are being exhausted.
-Few links that seem to be helpful, including full forums here close firefox when clicked on ex "hijack this logs and maleware removal" Coincidence or virus closes with specific words/links.
-At least one pop up from "microsoft" that was clearly fake.

Hi, I could use some help. When I try to open msconfig it closes immediately. When I search for a file on my pc the search closes to. When I uses the internet it will close when certain words are searched for. some of the words are; virus, trojan, avast. I'm using Firefox for the browser fyi. When I turn on my pc and sign in I get a message saying install NETframe.com v4.0  Honestly though, I think I uninstalled this myself by accident

I just installed AIMMusicLink and all of a sudden AIM won't work. I try to run it and the screen flashes really quick and then closes. I uninstalled the music link program, reinstalled AIM 6.8, uninstalled 6.8 and installed 6.9 beta and then gave up and started using 5.9 which does work. Any ideas to why 6.8 won't work? I even searched the registry and deleted everything that had to do with musiclink but it still didn't work.

I was trying to install updates on our desktop last night and had to roll back because the XP3 update could not install. Now IE does not work. I try to install IE8 through automatic updates and it cannot finish the installation. Also when I first logon to my machine, I get the messages cannot find and could not run or load C:\windows\inet2003\winlogon.exe.

Its wise to make sure when you are doing updates and Service Packs to make sure the system is 100% malware free. With that said, why wold the SP3 not install? Did you recieve an error and if so what was the EXACT error message?

Hi All,

Internet Explorer (7 and 8) will open and close immediately under Vista Home Premium. I have tried the following:

1) Run IE in no adds-on mode. Does the same thing.

2) Reset all settings under the Internet Options Panel---when it gets to the third part 'Applying Default Settings' it fails.

3) Run Malware Malabytes in Safe Mode---nothing detected.

4) Install IE8 (wasn't working back when it was IE7), still no luck. Uninstalled back to IE 7, no working, and then back to IE8.

So, any ideas? I normally use Firefox and Opera, but there is one specific work-related website that requires some ASP scripting that neither Firefox or Opera can handle!

Thanks!

This is primarily a informational post for those interested.. I found this post http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r...regedit-msconfig-closes-immediately-upon.html and wanted to reply but it was closed.

I just copied my drive over using Western Digital's Data Lifeguard utility. Upon rebooting (and making sure the new drive was selected in the bios to boot from) I encountered 2 problems..

1: the boot menu (which had not previously been enabled) now showed two entries for "Default system", both which worked, but was annoying to me..
2: msconfig would not work for me to check the startup and boot.ini.

I ran through a lot of steps trying to get msconfig to work again.. copied the file to a different location, rename it as a different filename, check for virus/malware, even copied it from my laptop, and checking the registry entries.. Nothing would let this program run!
As far as antivirus programs, I run Avast! .. I was POSITIVE I had no virus malware, etc. Even still, I ran a boot time virus sweep. NOTHING found. Even ran HijackThis.. again nothing. After MUCH searching on Google and even these forums, I simply resigned myself that I was going to need to do a repair install (which I hate doing). I decided to check one last thing first.. manual edit of the boot.ini.

You can try to run the following command to see if any DLL files are missing/damaged.

sfc /scannow

Try also the install folder of the app you use with IE7, if there is a DLL called PSAPI.dll
if there is delete it or rename the file.

Unfortunately I need IE7 for a stupid little app I'm running. IE6 and IE8 just won't work with it :-(
Machine is XP MCE-SP3 and was recently formatted so it's pretty clean.
Anyway same old story, IE6 works...IE8 works...IE7 opens for 500ms or so and disappears.
The process closes so it's not an issue where the window is simply hidden.

I have downloaded IE11 directly from Download IE Here Before that though I tried getting IE9, 10 and 11 through the Windows Update process. IE8 works on my laptop but I cannot get Direct x to function properly on http://www.moac.microsoftlabsonline.com I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling via the "Turn Windows features on or off" section of the control panel. Also reset IE through the control panel. Followed the instructions from this page as well. Internet Explorer opens, flashes, and then closes immediately when you start it Here is the link to the thread that suggested I seek help here.

Other browser (Firefox) works fine. I rarely use IE and only need it now to do the lab work for the 2 MOAC courses I am taking.

MS Word 2000 SR-1 closes immediately on launch. My operating system in Microsoft XP Pro. I've removed the program and reinstalled it, restarting the system after each action. I've updated AVG and run it, then restarted the computer, but no luck. Any ideas?
 

A:Word closes immediately

yes, here an idea
though, you have remove the application from your computer, you system have kept some files from old installation.
not to worry, this can be fixed by purging all MS Office files from your system.

let us start with add/remove programs & remove MS Office 2000
click Start, Run & type regedit & OK. browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office. right click that folder & choose the delete option.
go to C drive, Programs Files, & delete Microsoft Office from there. (don't worry if you receive an error of some files can not be removed, will just do it after reboot)
if the last step gave u an error, please reboot & delete after reboot (don't open any applications or browsers)
reboot
click Start, Run & type %TEMP%, the click OK. (delete all items within the folder that opens)
reboot
reinstall MS Office 2000
this should fix your issue. please let me know how it goes

Hi,

I've had zero luck with the Poser support people and have had to take this issue into my own hand. This app *will* work under safe mode but does when vista is booted up normaly. What are the key differences between safe mode and normal mode in vista? I need to start there if i want to begin troubleshooting this thing. I absolutely know its a display driver conflict between Catalyst 8.8 and my Asus software package that came with the video card. Any suggestions?

A:Poser 7, closes immediately after it loads

Safe mode loads basic drivers, and prevents most Anti virus and other prevention software from running fully.

So, you either have a conflict with your av / am software or else with a driver.

When i open the Internet Explorer, it will open then immediately close. I was able to pinpoint the problem at my home page (www.google.com). I opened IE again, stopped it quickly from opening the home page and then entered another web page. It worked. Then i went back to the home page and it closed again. So whenever i enter the home page the program will shut itself. I also use Firefox as web browser and it doesnt do the same thing. Any help will be appreciated.

As the title says, Google Chrome opens then immediately closes. I've tried uninstalling it but it does the same , the uninstall window will just close so i deleted all the files off the PC and tried to install it but again, when installing the window just opens then closes..

Has anybody come across this before?

Thanks.

A:Chrome opens then immediately closes

Hello,

Boot into Safe Mode and see if you can uninstall the program then try the reinstall.

If still does not work try creating a new user profile. Create a new browser user profile - Google Chrome Help

If still having issue make sure that your antivirus is up to date and perform a scan on the PC.

See the thread below and try the recommended fix. Hopefully this helps

I know this has been addressed in previous posts but none of the solutions I found worked for me.

Upon starting my computer, opening regedit isn't possible. I get an error message saying: "Regedit is disabled by administer." To fix this, I run (every time I turn on my netbook) the following statement: REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

This allows me to open Regedit, but it immediately closes again.

I have started working in Sierra Leone and know my computer has many viruses on it. Still, none of my anti-virus software (I use AVG Free 9.0 and PandaSecurity ActiveScan 2.0) has solved this problem.

Below please find my HJT log. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

My computer had/has a bug that will sleep, but not die. EasySearch is the bug and it is really pesty. My anti-spyware provider is close to finding an effective pesticide. I have overcome most problems, but I also have downloaded 5 browsers, IE, Firefox, Opera, Avant & NetCaptor to compare them. Now something different has occurred. IE, Firefox and Opera will open certain websites I like to visit, e.g. consumerworld.org and then promptly close the window. Avant and NetCaptor do not do this. I'm leaning toward Firefox as my preferred browser.

Question 1. Can you give me some advice as to how to make IE, Opera and Firefox keep these auto-closing windows open?

This is my first post. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,
I am running Windows 2000 on my machine here at work. I had Office 2000 Professional installed and all was well. A few weeks ago I installed a CAD reading program called Volo View and sometime there after all my problems started. All of my office applications (Excel, Outlook, Word, etc.) close only a few seconds after opening any one. I have removed both softwares and tried reinstalling Office. I also removed Volo View out of the registry also and it still shuts down. I found a MS fix to edit the registry by deleting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0 and then reinstalling Office from an administrator profile which didn't help. I have run Spybot, Adaware and CW Shredder, in an attempt to remove anything that may have come about via the internet and none have solved my problem. Below is my Startup Log and HijackThis Log.

when removing Office 2000 to correct problems, make sure you run OFF2000: Utility to Completely Remove Remaining Office CD1 Files and Registry Entries and OFF2000: Utility to Completely Remove Remaining Office CD2 Files to clean up any leftovers the uninstall left behind

Here's some MS KB articles that might help with the programs closing problem . . .
Office 2000 programs quit immediately on Windows 2000 when you are logged on as user
Error messages starting Office 2000 program, or program immediately quits on Windows XP, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000
OFF2000: Program Quits Immediately After Installing Project or Visio, not necessarily the same issue, but you can try it, if all else fails.

Thought this would be a good place to ask this...if not, feel free to point me in the right direction.

I've had this problem ever since the first betas, thinking that it would eventually work or "be fixed"--but even the release candidate and now the final has the same issue.

When I install IE9, when I go to open up the browser (32 or 64), it opens for a split second and then immediately closes. Every single time. I've never seen IE9 open on this machine.

One of my thoughts on why would be that I have two hard drives in this machine--a 60GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. I manually edited the registry entry for default install location / program files location to the E: drive, or 1TB drive, so I don't mistakenly install programs onto the SSD and clog up its limited space. For 95% of programs this has worked out just fine, including Microsoft's own Security Essentials (even though I'd love to have the option to put it on the SSD, but there's no options on where to install it).

Anyone else run into a problem like this? Is there a better solution than reverting that program files change? Now that I've had Windows running for a while I imagine changing that record will cause some...not so nice issues.

EDIT: And I just checked--IE9 is indeed installing to Program Files on the E:\ drive.

A:IE9 opens for a split second, then immediately closes.

For IE crashing, you probably want to try starting it from the command line first to see if it works this way - start > run > iexplore -extoff. If so, you have an add-on causing an issue, and can disable them via autoruns.

3. Regedit/msconfig open for a split second then close again (task manager and antivirus sites do still work)

It'll really help me if you guys could tell me an alternate software which could fix this problem or better still guide me through the process of getting rid of this problem..

could any of u tell me if there's another software i can use to get rid of this problem..and if possible guide me through the process...thanks

FYI: i posted this in this section because i could not enter the proper forum cause my browser seems to automatically close when i do so...srry for the inconvenience caused..
 

A:Browser & Hijack closes Immediately

You computer is obviously infected. Are you saying you cannot post in the Malware Removal & HijackThis logs forum? Possibly caused by the name HijackThis?

Can you download the program after booting in Safe Mode with Networking?

Is so,

Please click here to download and install the HijackThis installer. ​
Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

Do not fix anything​

OK, this is what's going on...

This particular game doesn't require much out of my machine. I've ran this game 5-6 times over just to see and it still ran smoothly, so I know for fact it has nothing to do with hardware (especially because I can still run much more graphically/processor intensive games). Just getting that out of the way.

I have played this game, unchanged, many-a-time pretty much every day, then one day it simply quits working. No update to the game (it does not update automatically), no change whatsoever. It'll just open and immediately close before any kind of content, color, or image is loaded. The whole process of me attempting to run the game and it closing takes less than a second.

I've tried spamming the game to see if maybe a 1 in 100 shot will randomly open it. This didn't work.

I have removed all my firewalls and antivirus, just for sake of testing purposes. This didn't work. Yes, I rebooted.

I have absolutely completely uninstalled the game, then reinstalled it. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

I have tried running as Administrator, or even just disabling the UAC altogether. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

It's an online game. Windows Firewall is disabled, all my ports are open, nothing is justifying what's going on here.

The two previous Firewalls/Antivirus I had were McAfee and Avast.

I am on Windows 7.
 

A:Game closes immediately after opening

What game and what are you exact PC specs (make and model if its a big brand name, or make and model of motherboard, cpu, gpu, ram, harddrive, power supply including wattage, optical drives etc.)?

At the moment, all you are saying is a random game doesn't work on a undefined machine ... thats not a lot to work with

I'll start with my current setup:

I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 on a Dual HDD setup, 120GB SSD/1.5TB Spinning. I have installed Windows on the SSD and I have set the Registry to expect Program Files and Program Files (x86) in the D drive.

So far, so good, except IE will not start. It flashes on the screen and immediately closes. It's getting frustrating. I've tried the Microsoft solution, and even re-registered all the .dll's for IE.

At this point, I have no idea what to do next. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I would really prefer not to set Program Files and (x86) back to C drive, but I might have to if I want IE to run. And yes, I run a different browser primarily, I'd just like to know IE is functioning.

A:MsConfig Closes Immediately After Execution

Welcome to TSG, Cronfofan; I've moved you to the XP forum since that is your operating system.

I see you have a couple of problems, first and foremost is the msconfig issue caused by a trojan. The second is a hijacker called rapidblaster among other things.

I'll try to address both in a combined fashion.

First have HijackThis and a notepad copy of these instructions handy in their own folder on the desktop. Then go to Folder Options > View and make sure "show hidden files" is selected. Folder Options is found through the Control Panel or any Explorer Tools menu.

Then shutdown completely and wait about 20 seconds before restarting. Tap f8 promptly on restart to access the boot menu and select Safe Mode.

1 -- in Safe Mode, click Start, Run and enter Explorer

2 -- navigate to c:\windows\system32 and delete:

WXKFCGREMB.EXE

3 -- navigate to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete:

Internet Explorer 7.

There is a particular page of just one website that brings up the following message the second it has loaded: 'Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.'

It's a multiple choice bullet page for placing an order at the pizzahut.co.uk site!!

I can logon just fine, but as soon as I navigate to the problem page the error is thrown up. It bugs me enough to tell you about it here!

Can anyone suggest a remedy for this? I just want to be able to order a pizza without the damn error!

Very curious that it only happens with this page and on this site only.

Not the most serious problem in the world I admit, but any help appreciated of course.

Hi,
 
I noticed lately that sometimes when I do a google search in Firefox and click on a link I'll be brought to some other ad/search site. It could be going on for awhile; I don't normally use Firefox and only noticed this problem when I opened it a few days ago. I don't have this problem in Chrome. Anyway, when I put two and two together I went to open Microsoft Security Essentials to run a scan only to find that as soon as I open it, it closes. Usually within a second. I ran a complete scan with Malware Bytes that did not find anything malicious but quarantined a few files which I deleted. 
 
I am running Windows 7 64-bit.

Hi guys,

Have just found and read a closed as solved post about Microsoft Office 2000 Outlook closing immediately on opening. Of course, now I have gone through the registration process I cannot find the original post.

So, within the last two days, for no apparent or obvious reasons, Outlook 2000 refuses to stay open. When I try to open it, it opens and immediately closes; no error messages, no crash reports to Microsoft. The only thing I notice is in the task bar at the bottom of the screen, when it opens it shows the outlook logo followed by '-Microsoft Outlook' instead of 'Microsoft Outlook'.

I have removed the program and reinstalled it a trillion times (only a slight exaggeration). This made no difference.
I have deleted (having copied it to a different location) the .pst file. This caused the program to open and ask various questions about setting up new folders. I did what it asked and the program promptly closed having created various personal telephone folders.
I have put the .pst file back. Now, for the pico second that the screen is open, I can see that there are no e-mails in any of the folders, obvious I guess, but confusing to an idiot like me.
Any help greatly appreciated.
P.S. Info Utility says I don't have an anti-virus but I am running a full Norton 360 program which is always on and I have scanned the whole system a couple of times since this problem began.

I'm having a problem with my computer that I just can't seem to solve. I first noticed while online I am having trouble typing in the address bar. When I attempt to type the text will highlight or delete itself. For example it I type www. It will highlight or just show ".w". Also the screen has a steady flicker. Typing in search boxes for yahoo or Google seems to work fine. I have also noticed that when I click on the start menu that it will not stay on. I comes on for a split second then closes. It gives me almost no time to open programs or anything else. Most drop down menus do the same. Another thing, anything highlighted in any program has a steady flicker.
What I done so far is to scan for a virus or malware with Spybot, Malwarebyte, Ad-Aware and AVG and so far everything is fine. . I'm running Win XP SP3 Intel CPU, 1.60 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM.

Hi All

I've got to the slitting wrists stage of this problem. I hope someone can help...

I've been getting the blue screen of death recently and upon checking my computer's error logs I found that it was a problem with my Radeon graphics card. I uninstalled and reinstalled the Radeon software but the audio went. I couldn't find the audio driver (long story) so I did a system restore which worked - everything was back to normal. Or so I thought.

Next morning I tried to open IE but upon opening it closed immediately. I've done a bit of research (ON THE INTERNET AT WORK!) and have done a HijackThis log.

It may be a coincidnece but the other day my screensaver changed - it's now a black screen which says Oxigenscr V5.00.0000. Maybe this is a virus. Thank you for your help in advance

Okay, for some reason when I try to start Firefox, I get the message:

"firefox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

behind it is the Mozilla Crash Reporter:

"Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts."

There is an option to restart firefox, but the same messages come up. I believe it might have had something to do with a virus I had, but Malwarebytes removed several trojans (Vundo I believe was one of them) and installed IE8. So far I've

- restarted the computer
- completely uninstalled and reinstalled firefox
- ran ccleaner & combofix
- ran malwarebytes
- manually uninstalled firefox, renamed the user profile folder in %APPDATA%

i cannot restore to an earlier date because of the virus scans and deleting virus files that were housed within restore data. Has anyone else encountered this issue or know a possible solution?

I have a XP Home machine that whenever I startup IE 7.0, it closes right away (within a few seconds). It looks like it will start

to no avail. I tried re-installing IE 7.0 (downloaded from another machine). It went through the whole install and said it installed
successfully, however it couldn't download the updates. I restarted and the windows update said their were updates available, but I
haven't installed them yet and that is where I sit. IE still does the same thing currently. I did notice in the hosts file there is a entry
of "216.203.102.48 SC00102". I'm not sure what that is, maybe dealing with my wireless connection? Before I reinstalled IE, I took
it out, restarted and it didn't make a difference. One thing (before I re-installed IE) I did was to put "c:\windows\ie7\intcpl.cpl" into
"c:\windows\system32\intcpl.cpl" and that got my Internet Options back (their gone again now), but it didn't fix the closing out issue.
