keep getting a blank white page that covers 3/4's of my desktop

Q: keep getting a blank white page that covers 3/4's of my desktop

Not all the time, but 5 out of 7 days, a white blank page will appear as a 3/4's window over blocking whatever I am doing which I can select any other window or option on my toolbar and my selection will appear over the white page/window, but I have tried to close everything open and the only thing that remains is this blank white window/page blocking the majority of my desk top. This page has no options in upper right corner to close it or minimize it as well as it doesn't have any indication on my toolbar that it is even open or exists. The odd thing right now by typing this issue out, I tried right clicking on my toolbar and selecting to see my desktop which made the white page go away. Before, I tried everything to get rid if this white box by attempting to shrink it, to right clicking on it to see what pops up which nothing does, and I have tried to left click it and still nothing happens. I use to have to restart my computer to get it off my computer screen but now I guess I will just right click on tool bar and select desk top as that just worked. but I would like to know what is causing this and how to stop it. Ever since I purchased my laptop and started using it, it started to appear but not as frequent so I did not use my one time free phone tech support to solve this issue as I wanted to save it for something possibly worse that I needed immediate help with. Any suggestions, would greatly be available.

I'm working on a Dell Dimension 4600 Series, 1 GB Ram, It was in bad shape, not being able to get to the Desktop or Safe Mode.
I've corrected most of the problems and it's working pretty good with one exception.
It has a white blank rectangle in the center of the Desktop 7 1/2 inch X 11 1/2 inch. It can't be moved and it hides the desktop theme.
It's hidden only when I open most anything, like a web site or maybe the Control Panel.
I've used Microsoft Clean Boot - Anti Virus - Super Spyware - CCleaner (Clean and Registry) - Service pk 3 is Installed
I don't have an install CD. Nividia controls don't help.
If I can't remove this white blank rectangle from the center of the screen I guess my niece will just have to live with it.
Any suggestions appreicated.

A:IE7 Blank White Page, nothing more!

Hi Godspeed27

You might want to post your HiJackThis log over in the Security/HiJackThis forum here at TSF. They are our experts at reading the logs.

At first glance, I imagine that you really don't want the Crawler Toolbar that is starting from a suspicious spot = your inbox? Several sites identify that process as a poorly behaved adware applet that masquerades as a malware remover --- http://www.pcreview.co.uk/startup/CToolBar.exe.php

IE7 is also notoriously intolerant of non-compliant third-party toolbars.

You could try a "reset" of IE7 & see if that helps:


Quote:




To reset Internet Explorer settings
1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
2. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Internet Explorer.
3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
5. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
6. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.
7. Close Internet Explorer.
Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.




For the full details on resetting IE7, see the Microsoft article --- http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...fe1771033.mspx

You are also running a freeware/shareware 3d window manager - why? Try living without if for a while, just to simplify things.

Hello everyone. I've had this problem just recently and has been persisting for 2 days now. I try to go on a particular site (www.crunchyroll.com) and all it does is display a blank page, even if it says done. No error messages are displayed, just plain white background. I was able to view that site 3 days ago perfectly on both the laptop and the desktop. Now neither computer could view that site.

I looked up some information regarding that problem but all I can understand is a probable mistake in php. The site should still exist because I've asked my friend to view it on her comp and she could view it. I'm also wondering if this is related to the trend where I can't view some youtube videos that I was previously able to view. It just says loading on the video screen indefinitely (having all other material on the page successfully loaded and showing) while some videos are functioning. That problem too also occured just about 3 days ago.

Both the desktop and the laptop are Windows XP and both use Internet Explorer as its browser. If there is a way to resolve this problem, please let me know. If there is already a page regarding this problem, please refer. Thanks. So far only crunchyroll can't be viewed. All other sites I frequently visit can be viewed.

All of a sudden my screen goes completely white, and the only way to get rid of it is to hit the "show desktop" button on my keyboard, then right click the button that has appeared on my taskbar that says "Internet Explorer blank page", and click "close" from the menu.

I am constantly getting a blank white page when I switch from one program, e-mail, etc. How can I get this fixed without having to purchase RegCure. I purchased this software and tried it, but it did not work. This is a very irritating and frustrating problem. I have to go to Task Manager and delete it before I can proceed. How can I get this fixed permanently? Tell me what I need to change in the Registry to prevent this from happening.
Thanks. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32.

Hi, maybe if you go back and read your post again then ask yourself have I made my problem clear, what could I add to help those who would help me... try to tell us more about the problem when did it start do you mean opening any program only opens a blank screen, and RegCure is not a recommended program more likely the cause rather then the solution have you run this and what makes you believe the solution resides in the registry, and not between the keyboard and the chair.

I have Windows 7. When I use my laptop to attempt to log into Facebook, the URL says https://www.facebook.com/login.php?login_attempt=1 and there's a white blank page in Google Chrome. When I try it with Internet Explorer, I get the same URL and the following information: This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying.
 
I think that I may have reset my Internet and Google Chrome settings before I started having this problem; however, my husband can log into his Facebook account on my laptop with Google Chrome without any problems. I can't log into my account on my laptop or on a work PC at my office. I can log into Facebook on my husband's laptop with Google Chrome, but I can't on his laptop with Mozilla Firefox although he can log into his account with both browsers on his laptop.
 
I can't figure out of it's a Facebook account problem or a problem with my settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am using Win Vista, IE 8.0. I don't have any extra toolbars installed. I am using Zone Alarm and AVG free versions.

After I log into the GMAIL login screen, a blank white screen flashes repeatedly. In the bottom left hand message area the message "Website found, waiting for reply" appears, followed by "Done". This reapeats indefinitely.

I read some things in Google help. I have cleared my cache and cookies but I still had the problem.

One thing that does work is if I open "IE (No Add-ons)" found on Start> AllPrograms > Accessories > System Tools, then I do not have the problem. Since it worked with no add-ons, from the Tools menu in IE I selected Manage Add-ons and disabled all add-ons. I was going to add them back in one at a time to maybe determine which add-on was causing the problem. But with all add-ons disabled, I still experienced the problem.

I had recently upgraded to Adobe Reader and Flash ver 10. Thinking this might be part of the problem I uninstalled all Adobe products. I still experienced the problem. (I have since added Adobe back to my system.)

Can you give some help determining what may be causing me to get this flahsing screen when I login to GMAIL using the normal mode of IE?

Thanks

A new window opened in Internet Explorer displays a blank white page.

I tried all these fixes:
- windows updates (Win 7sp1 and IE9.0.9)
A new window opened in Internet Explorer displays a blank white page
- Microsoft Fix it 50191
- re-register the DLL
Nothing happens when you click a link in Internet Explorer
- Check your default web browser setting
- Change the file types that Internet Explorer opens by default
- Use the Internet Explorer No Add-ons mode
- Reset Internet Explorer settings
- Reregister the necessary Internet Explorer DLL files
- Use System Restore

The problem remains unsolved.

Everything else runs fast and perfectly on my computer, included Mozilla Firefox. However I don't like when something doesn't run very well. Someone has an idea?

Hi,


You can follow the below mentioned steps in order which could fix the issue:

Change the compatibility mode IE. To turn Compatibility View on, click the Compatibility View button to make the icon change from an outline to a solid color. This option will be seen on the address bar.

Turn off hardware acceleration by going to Internet options. You can even refer to the article on the URL mentioned: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2528233

Reinstall the Adobe flash player and latest JAVA.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling IE, Use the following FIXIT for uninstalling the same http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9787447
Then proceed with downloading an updated version of IE from the URL mentioned: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/internet-explorer/products/ie/home

If the above troubleshooting steps fail, try creating a New User Account to check if the problem persists.

Hello,

I am having an issue with internet explorer. I work in the IT dept of a decent size company (500-600 users). About 5 to 10 people, on our network, call a day with IE problems. The fix for us had been to remote into the computer, log the user off, log on to the computer with an account that has domain admin permissions, reboot the computer, log back in with domain admin account and the problem is fixed.

This seems to be some kind of update or something that a standard user does not have permission to finish. Most of the time there are no updates to IE found in the control panel in the past week. I have had to fix the same computers multiple times.

We can currently fix the problems but I would greatly appericate it if someone could fill me in on maybe how to prevent or fix the problems without all the log outs and reboots.

Thank you so much for your time.

I'm brand new here, so I hope I can find an answer...I have a Vista Home Premium machine that was recently upgraded from XP Home, and when opening IE, a blank, white window opens in full screen, and the only way to close it is either open Task Manager, or Alt + F4...once it's closed, it seems to behave normally, but ...?
When the computer used XP as it's OS, opening any IE window caused a second, blank IE window to open and attempt to load - what it was loading I don't know, but when that window was closed, the intended destination could load...anyone seen/heard that one before?...any thoughts?

Using XP Home, with all updates installed. First using Firefox, now using Chrome, about once a day, sometimes more, I will click on a link or to go to a website. The tab will show, for example, Tech Support Guy, but the page rendered will be blank; totally white.

Refreshing and restarting the browser does no good. Logging off and logging back in does no good. The only thing I've found to correct it is a complete restart.

As near as I can tell, everything is clean and running well. Using Counter Spy and Bit Defender, run them daily.

Any help would be appreciated.

Frequently in IE11 when I click on something that would load a new web page, IE11 loads the menu bars,etc, but the actual page image/content does not load - IE just displays a blank (white) page. If I hit PFK 5 to refresh the page, the page reloads as it should have loaded the first time. Firefox and Chrome do not have this problem. Also, I've noticed that in IE11 I often have to click on an item a 2nd time in order for the browser to react. I have done no diagnostics up to now.

A:White blank icons on desktop ?

Hi, usually when they work it is not a .lnk problem, more likely an .ico problem (these are file associations) normally this effects ALL Icons or Links.

Since this is happening to only some you should first refresh your Icon cache to do this:-

Go to search and type cmd right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the command prompt type the cmds highlighted in red:- (or copy paste them)

taskkill /im explorer.exe /f (press enter) Your desktop will go blank.

next type:-
CD %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local (press enter)

next type:-
attrib -h iconcache.db (press enter)

next type:-
del iconcache.db (press enter)

Next type:-
explorer.exe (press enter) Your desktop will reappear... let us know how you get on.

When I start up my computer, everything works fine, I can login fine, but after ~2 minutes of being logged in, my computer screen with turn entirely white (mouse visible, with the little loading circle), and then if I click or hit any buttons during the white screen, it will return to my desktop, with no windows open, no icons, no task bar, just my wallpaper.

I can CTRL+ALT+DEL, but when I hit 'Run Task Manager', it goes back to the blank wallpaper with nothing there.
I suspect task manager is running, but the screen won't display it so I can't interact with it. I suspect this because
I can ctrl+alt+del, then hit 'Log Out', and for a brief moment my desktop will go back to normal, but then the logout process continues and I am logged out.

First I tried running it in Safe Mode, which works, except the same thing happens. Only instead of a white screen, the computer just restarts on its own. So then I went to the Advanced Boot Options screen, and disabled 'Automatic Restart on Crash'. For some reason though, that had no effect on anything.

So I tried working in the <2 minutes I have before the computer goes blank, and managed to disable all processes & services except for microsoft ones, and disabled startup processes. This seemed to have made the startup faster (giving me a bit more time to work before it goes blank), but didn&... Read more

A:White Screen -> Blank Desktop

I have the same problem. I don't have a spare monitor to see if it is the monitor. The computer seems to be running fine, but I am concerned that is may have something to do with the power management settings. Seems to happen when I leave it for a bit, but then it happened when I turned the monitor off & also when I rebooted the PC. Sometimes it eventually comes on, when I hit alt>shift, the ctrl>alt>delete, then I can finally bring up the task manager which brings my screen back. I have Vista 32bit, and an LG monitor. I noticed no one replied to you. Have you been able to solve it?

Recently fairly often, defintely intermittent, when starting up my PC, the display fails to produce the usable XP desktop. Instead, the screen is totally white, no cursor, key press has no effect. Must reset or power off and then on again to reboot the PC. Then, XP starts correctly and a usable desktop appears.
My only fix attempt was to refresh the display driver to the latest available.
My system info appears below.

Trying to avoid reinstalling XP PRO SP3.

Thanks for any help, Dave_S

It sounds like a problem with the screen, graphics or video card or motherboard if i had to guess.Reinstalling the operating system isnt going to solve the problem.If you tried to update the driver and it didnt work then you might have to have it checked out to see what the problem is.

Hello, and thank you in advance for taking the time to address my issue.

I have a Dell laptop here with Windows Vista Home Premium, with the latest updates installed. According to the owner of the laptop, it began exhibiting virus-like symptoms about a week ago. After the removal of a few rogue antivirus programs, I attempted to test out the functionality of the computer by downloading Firefox. I went to google.com, typed "Firefox" in the search bar, and after clicking search, I received a completely blank page - no text on the page at all. The page seemed to be very long and scrollable, as well (see attached photo for reference). I am assuming this is a DNS hijack of some sort. When I replace "www.google.com" in the address bar with google's ip address, the search results return without a hassle.

Thank you so much,
J Bradshaw

New Dell Optiplex 790 System
Just installed two weeks ago - very few apps installed and only a few trusted websites have been visited.

Originally set up and installed MS Office, Adobe Reader, and a few other common programs. Installed VMware vSphere Client. Upon using VMWare vSphere Client for the first time, I first noticed the white/blank square in the upper right corner of my desktop. It has been there ever since, even when I have not used any applications after startup.

I'm attaching a snippet of the affected area of the desktop.

Optiplex 790 PSU failure - Common? <<= Full article from Spiceworks More recent details have now shown it is a Dell Specific problem - It is either related to Power Supply Unit (most likely) or Motherboard issue (maybe) - Contact your Dell dealer ASAP -Quote from Dell spokesperson =Dell made minor modifications to OptiPlex 990 and 790 motherboards. Due to the revision the OptiPlex 990/790 system(s) will require installation of either Dell's or an embedded/custom BIOS based on A11 or later on a go-forward basis and will no longer be compatible with BIOS versions previous to A11. In addition, the engineering team cannot determine root cause without analyzing the failed MBs. Have you been in contact with technical support to report the failures you are experiencing? This is not a problem caused by you in any way - It needs to be fixed by your Dell dealer Now -Edited to fix link -

Hello,

I was hoping to find help with this issue. I think I may have been infected by a virus or something. I rebooted my computer after it began to slow down, and upon reboot, all my desktop icons were white/blank. I double clicked a couple of icons and a message popped up reading "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action..." Went to Google but the "solutions" I found were mostly referring to the programs started but the icons were just blank and resetting the icon file or something like that. The only program that I have been able to start is Task Manager in Regular mode, but can't open or create a new task. In safe mode I can open regedit and found a few registry tweaks to try and was able to import the first one, but after that got a message saying "the specified file is not a registry file..." I also tried to repair, and restore but Windows couldn't repair, and there wasn't a restore point available. Hoping to not have to reinstall. Anyone familiar with this issue and what can I do? Thanks in advance.

I am using GP user preferences to create shortcuts on my users' desktops. On all my Vista/Win7 machines they are fine and the icons are what I set them to be. on all my Win8 machines the icon is just a blank white square. If I right-click and view the icon,
the correct image appears. But when the user is looking at the desktop the image is blank.

I have upgraded a couple machines, scratch built one, and purchased an OEM version on a new laptop. All are the same: blank shortcut icons.

Recently, when I use click the "Search" button, the search pane extends over the whole screen and no longer displays the width bar or close button. If I search and click a link, the pane remains and covers the page. If I click the Favorites button while the Search pane is open, IE hangs. I have to click it open and closed or right click it and select "Close Toolbar". I can no longer toggle between search and favorites using the IE buttons. This happened recently and I have not added anything to IE except the Yahoo toolbar. Removing this didn't help. Anybody with similar problems or know a possible solution?

Can't left-click OR right-click on it, but the taskbar still works, and if I click Show Desktop, there are my icons again.

I have a tablet with Windows 8.1 installed. In the office I'm using it with an external monitor and a keyboard/mouse.

When I'm moving the mouse in Internet Explorer 11 (App Mode) to the left or right side of the screen, a gray semi-transparent back/forward button will appear (see attached screenshot). By pressing on of these button you get to the previous or next webpage.

My problem: On a visited website is a link on the exact same spot where the "back" button of IE 11 will appear. If i move my mouse over the link for clicking it, the "back" button of IE 11 will apper and cover the link so I can't click it.

How can I click the coverd link or hide/turn off the "back" button of IE 11?

Hi

I have a problem. My office has many labs, but from a single lab when someone prints a word document onto a particular printer, it gives out an extra blank page. This blank page is not seen in the print preview unlike which was discussed in the previous forums.

This problem has been encountered only for word documents but not for .pdf files. I have tried even with a single page of word printing, it gives out another blank page. Can anyone resolve this problem. I dont think its the problem with the printer because it works well with other labs and .pdf files from this lab too. Anyways its a HP Laserjet 5SiMX.
 

A:Word document prints an extra blank page but that blank page is not seen in preview

Is the printer in question the default printer for the PC in that lab? Print preview shows how the document would appear based on the settings of the default printer - using another printer can cause changes such as this.

The title says it all. When I open a URL shortcut from the desktop, IE opens it to a blank page. All links opened from within IE and other programs, however, open fine.

I have spent two days searching for a solution everywhere I can locate and tried all of the solutions I found (short of a reinstall of WIN7) and nothing has worked. I have uninstalled IE 10 back to IE8 and reinstalled it twice, but each reinstall of IE8, 9, and 10 have not gotten rid of the problem. I must stay with WIN7 and IE10 for now for various reasons so I need to find a solution.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hello,

A long time ago I tried out blackbox for windows, I didn't like it and decided to go back to plain old windows. After that, every time the explorer started it would put up a plain black background over the wallpaper I had chosen which was displayed until the explorer actually started. If I kill the explorer I can see the wallpaper.

This wasn't that big a deal until other issues caused me to reinstall windows XP again, not an upgrade, over the old install. Now everything is working really well again, except that the explorer is still covering up my old wallpaper every time it starts...this is really annoying!

I often right click in IE (I'm actually using Avant, a kind of IE mask I guess) and select Create Shortcut. It puts a shortcut and my desktop to that page. This mysteriously stopped working. The icon appears on my desktop with the page title and all, but when I double click it, it just opens up my browser and loads about:blank. In the shortcut file's properties, it just says:

Type: Internet Shortcut
Description: (the title of the page)

and then gives me the file's size, location, etc., but it doesn't list the URL anywhere. It's just getting on my nerves having to copy a page's URL to a text file on my desktop if I want to remind myself of something.

Hey guys,

I have a client at my workplace who has some problems in Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows XP desktop system.

You see, every time my client wanted to print out something, he/she usually goes into print preview. From there, there is a blank page on the first page, but there is some text on the second (and subsequent) pages. He/she is trying to print from a pop-up window with the menu bars and buttons in place.

I have to experiment and play around with the zoom buttons and even change it from portrait and landscape. My client is trying to print some reports and statistics for the VOIP lines on the administration page. How do I fix the particular issue?

My best guess is to upgrade the entire IE web browser to 8 (or maybe 9). Any other suggestions?

Hi. I know about the common problem of people creating blank pages when they don't mean to, but this is not that problem. If I open a new document and type a few characters, it will print a completely blank page, followed by a page with my characters. If I print a 10-page document, it will print 20 pages - 10 blank interspersed with the 10 pages of the document. It prints the blank page first. I've looked through the Word prefs and don't see anything that could cause this. I deleted Normal.dot Any ideas very welcome.

Hi there.
I recently had a trojan dnschanger on my laptop. I tried using malwarebytes program to remove it several times and then gave up and sent it in to get repaired at a shop in town. They told me there was no infection and sent it back to me. I reran the test and sure enough it was gone. but...

What had originally made me try using malwarebytes to scan ( avg, spybot s&d, and adaware did not find anything) was that my browser was acting strange. When I do a Google search and click on one of the results, it will load a blank page saying 'done' in the bottom corner, then after 5 seconds or so it will then load the page i wanted.

Hi my wife’s friend’s computer is having a problem, first it didn’t have any virus scan problem – so I installed AVG 7.0. AVG ran clean with the current updates. I also ran Adaware and Spybot with current updates and they removed some spyware programs.

My problem now is when I try to access Microsoft’s Windows Update page all I get is a BLANK white screen with a message "Done” in the bottom left corner. I get the same results when I go to the Symantic Security Check web page and I click on the GO button to do the security check, it open a new BLANK white window???

Could this Virus, spyware or just a setting???

My Windows XP machine has just given me a blank white screen!! It happened while browsing the net and I can do nothing now. The screen is totally blank and there is no response to any keystroke or mouse click. I switch off and restart: the Windows Welcome screen appears, in blue as it should, plus the fanfare; then instead of booting properly, it waits a bit then all goes white again. The hourglass is flicking on and off showing that some booting-up is perhaps going on but I cannot even get a response from Ctrl-Alt-Del. There is no Start button or way of accessing anything!

When I press the button to switch off, my desktop briefly appears (in full colour, just as it should be) followed by the message that I'm logging off and Windows is shutting down. So it doesn't look to me that the machine is totally dead, just diverted to this blank white screen. Unfortunately, after a virus infection some time back, this machine will not start in safe mode (I just get a list of partitions and drivers) so I am really stuck. Can anyone please help me here? It really is urgent.

When I log into my account, my normal homescreen flashes for about a second, then all I can see is a white blank screen. I can still see and move around my cursor, however none of my keys have any affect on the screen and nothing happens. If I do CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and I click to log off, my normal homescreen comes up again for a few seconds, before the computer logs off.
I'm not very experienced with computers, so would really appreciate some help
My Laptop is a Dell Inspiron (The one on the advert with the annoying catchy tune) and I've had it for a few years now. The account that's not working, is my personal account. The only other account we have to use is the Guest account, which I have been using for the past year or so. As you have probably realised, this means I can't download any new software, which I really need to do.

I am running Vista Home Premium SP1. Several times a day, for no reason, the screen goes completely white with exception to the task bar. When this happens, the Internet icon appears on the task bar. The only way I know how to cancel this is to click on the icon, then Close OR press Alt+F4 to close the current screen. This is very annoying as it happens regularly. It also happens sometimes after bootup and everything has settled down. Without touching the keyboard or mouse the screen will go white.

I have a Dell flatscreen; I am not sure of a model number for the screen, but it might be: BN68-00170Q-00

I noticed that the screen had light flickers, and this has been this way for quite a while. Just today, the screen appeared completely white. I have a dual-screen set up. the other screen, the same model, has a menu when unplugged from the computer. When this (broken) screen is unplugged from the computer, the screen still displays white.

My question is: What is wrong with this screen? Can I repair this screen, and if so, what will it take?

My laptop screen goes completely white. It used to be less frequent before and would start working when I restarted the laptop. However its happening more often in the last two days. It does not go back to normal even when I restart it. The screen is totally white (no icon or windows). When i restart i see the DELL screen for a split nano second and then the screen goes white. I think the laptop is still functioning but its just the screen that goes blank. I say this because I was videochatting the other day when the screen turned white. I could still hear the voice and continue the chat. Also the numlock and capslock seem to be working. I am just worried cos its happening more often now and I think one day it will totally shut off and I will lose all my files. I had to restart my laptop atleast 5-6 times while following the 'spyware 1st steps'.

I don't think I have a Windows Install disc, or a Boot CD.

I have asked for help in techsupport forum before and also regularly follow all the steps you have suggested to keep my computer safe from virus but dont know why this is happening. So please help me. TIA

Hi edifiz,

You've got something really nasty on this machine. I'll need to gather more information before providing removal instructions.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from here Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and save it to your desktop.

Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided on that same page.

Caution: This is a beta version so please be sure to read the disclaimer and back up any important data before using.
Double click the mbar.zip file to open it, then 'Extract all files'.
Double click the mbar folder to open it, then double click mbar.exe to start the tool.
Check for Updates, then Scan your system for malware

If malware is found, do NOT press the Cleanup button yet. Click EXIT.

I'd like to see the log first so I can see what it sees. You'll find the log in that mbar folder as MBAR-log-<date and time>***.txt . Please attach that to your next reply.

=======================

Next, download TDSSKiller.exe and save it to your desktopExecute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
Press Start Scan
If Malicious objects are found, do NOT select Cure. Change the action to Skip, and save the log.
Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\ ,for example, C:\TDSSKiller.<version_date_time>log.txt

During a two hour period using my laptop, blank white pages appeared, seemingly at random times. There was nothing on the screen apart from the cursor pointer except for a "greyed out" slider bar on the right margin.

There were no options available, except for "right clicking" which did not give an option to exit. The only option appeared to be to switch off the machine.(I realise now that I could possibly have used the task manager)

After a few futile attempts to discover what the problem was and a solution, I called my retailer's technical guys, who tried various things, including testing the hardware. They concluded that the blank page was a pop-up window, initiated by a virus or spyware. I have NOD32 and Spywareblaster installed and neither indicated a problem. I ran a full system scan and again, no threats were found.

Finally the technical guys recommended that I reset my PC to factory setting, by reloading all my original software.
As it is a new PC, only a few days old, this was no big problem.

I'm on Vista Home Premium.

After returning to factory settings and reinstalling everything, all seems well.

Does anyone agree that it was caused by a virus or spyware and if so why was it not detected?

Any comments will be appreciated.

Mike

I saw this issue in the forum. And I'm having the same problem as the original poster. If anyone has a solution, I'd certainly appreciate the guidance. This laptop (Compaq CQ-60) is about 6 months old. Because it was so cheap, I didn't bother buying the warranty. It got dropped, so naturally we had to replace the LCD screen. It worked perfectly after that for about 2 weeks. Now when you turn it on, it's just a solid white, blank screen. If we connect an external monitor, we can use it. But otherwise, we're kinda screwed. Using my troubleshooting skills here, if it has a display (externally) then the motherboard and video card would apparently be functioning as expected. One other thing, I can adjust the brightness using the function key and the corresponding f key. Did this new LCD screen just go bad?

Help.

Thanks,

Randy.

Hi,

My flatscreen monitor now only displays a white screen. This started when the monitor got knocked against the back wall when i knocked the desk it was on. If i look at it from a angle i can see the picture slightly and can log in etc.

Is their any way to fix this, or do i have to buy a new monitor?

Something in the monitor is likely broken, there's a low chance that its just a loose connection, but the cost of repairing monitors rarely makes sense these days when looking at some of the LCD deals.

Whenever I leave the computer idle for a short period of time the screen goes blank/white. The only way to get control again is to reboot/rsestart. This feature used to work by screen going blank until I touched a key where it would come back to what was on screen before. I think I must have selected something in the settings incorrectly. I am using Windows 7 and either Google Chrome, Internet Explored or Firefox. This is an HP Pavilion lap top computer.

When using my dell laptop, the screen will get quick tiny color lines and then go white blank and the only way to get it back up is to close my computer and wait about 2 minutes and sometimes I have to do this several times. This usually only happens if my computer is not plugged but also happens when it is just not as often. Any suggestions you have would be awesome! Thanks!

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums. Since it has been a few days since you scanned your computer with HijackThis, we will need a new HijackThis log.

Just about to edit some sound files until I noticed that when I right click on the file or any file, folder, etc. (apart from the stuff inside a browser), the box is white. To see what's written, I need to hover my mouse and move it. I don't know what caused it. I was just reading some news before working and it happened. I'm currently thinking that it's a virus, malware or those nasty stuff. Currently running RogueKiller and see if there's anything suspicious. Will edit after doing the scan.

Edit: Just restarted the PC and the problem's gone. RK didn't find anything suspicious too.

Any suggestions on what programs to use to scan my PC?

A:Blank white box appears when right clicking.

I have seen this happen before in windows. It does not happen often, but graphical glitches sometimes occur. I doubt its malware related. Malware these days attempts to not show itself, and would not have much a reason to do what you are describing.

Had it been a long time since you restarted?

Could be explorer.exe on the fritz.

I did a system scan with Spybot Search and Destroy along with Hijackthis. The computer was working just fine until start up. When everything loads a white blank screen randomly pops up and disappears. The computer is running just fine but it's bugging me what the white screen is cause it never happened before. I restarted the computer a few times to see if I can crash the white screen which I did. It gave me a CPAX20 error. I did some research on it and it says that I must of downloaded an adware which I don't think can be possible because I've been dealing with virus, maware, and adware for years and I can't find anything I've recently downloaded that would have any viruses because I download programs from a friend that's very reliable.

Anyone have any idea on what this is?

(Note: If this is in the wrong section then I apologize before hand)

My computer a Dell Vostro 1510 is fairly new however I keep getting a random blank white page to pop up, this happens when I am connected to the internet and when I am not. If it does happen when I already have an internet explorer page open then I can go to the tab on the taskbar and right click and close, but if i dont have a ie window open then my whole screen goes white and the only way to get rid of it is to open the task manager and close it there. I have run mcaffee virus scan, avg virus scan, spybot and windows defender with no problems found. The problem doesnt seem to be causing anyother problems other than annoying the dickins out of me.

I know I am not alone with this problem, but haven't been able to find a solution online - last encountered it some months back, but today it is back again. Folders 'show' as white squares (invisible) and many files lose their default icons and go blank as well. It's not just the icon picture - a whole batch of bmp files have been affected: if I right-click on them and choose Properties, the information tells me they are 1x1 pixel (they are not), or on others I am told that the bmp file is a folder containing 100s of MBs of files. (Wrong!).

Clearly Explorer has had (another) nervous breakdown. This occurred today as I was working as usual - no new programmes or alterations to the system. Last time a System restore fixed it, but has anyone sorted out what the problem is here?




System restore didn't help this time - same thing. Even worse, my bmp files are being destroyed as I open the folder. For a split second they show as they should when I open the containing folder, then they go white and register as 1kb in size. If I choose to overwrite the folder with a backed up copy, without opening it, the replace files dialogue shows all files as being their original size however (i.e - no instance of do I want to overwrite the 'corrupt' 1kb file with the proper 2MB file, or whatever. The sizes and dates of the files show as being all the same.

Thanks,

seems like one to MOVE to the hardware forum, likely a Monitor issue. But it won't hurt for you to run these tools free from links below... adaware/spybot/spyware blaster, in the meantime while you wait for further analysis in this forum.

Hello All

Guess I should apologise if this is considered the wrong place to make this post. Recently when I click to open a thread I have a large blank white area that covers a whole screen, down to the bottom of the first advertisement. Is this due to changes on the forum or is it just me?
Regards SilverSurf

I am running windows XP,mostly use google chrome.I run ESSET,Malwarebytes and CC cleaner often........My problem is when viewing multiple windows,1or many,when going back to any of the windows I was not viewing the screen is white except for the addres bar.It will take up to a minute for the sites screen to reapear and if I try to reload the page it will eventually but it is better if I close the window and start from scratch.I constantly get the error message that my shockwave app has crashed and to reload but I am not even sure if I have shockwave as if I try to reload it nothing happens...If you need further info just ask...

A quick-fix might be to simply reinstall Shockwave.

Login as the Administrator and then download and install Shockwave from Adobe at the URL below. If you do not want the Google Toolbar then remember to untick the GT box before installing.

Shockwave should be updated at least once a month.
