"warning: -5V exceed limits"...it consistently reads as positive

Q: "warning: -5V exceed limits"...it consistently reads as positive

Hello. My hardware monitor (SilentTek) tells me that my -5 voltage is consistently ranging from +3.45V to +3.60V. All other voltages are pretty normal. I have hooked up three different power supplies, all with the same result: I get a warning saying the -5V "exceeds limits".

I had just replaced my old motherboard (AOpen AK79G-VN) with a used one of the exact same type, and kept everything else the same. Since everything should be the same, I am guessing it must be the motherboard.

Aside from this warning, everything seems to be in working order; I just fear that I'm going to end up overloading something.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer, please let me know if you need more info.

Ben

A: "warning: -5V exceed limits"...it consistently reads as positive

What do the voltages in the BIOS show?
Is there a newer version of your SilentTek available?
What does MBM say in the 'Dashboard' readings? http://mbm.livewiredev.com/

Those figures point to a non-working program, rather than 3 non-working PSU's or a faulty motherboard.

Earlier this evening I randomly got 3 or 4 pop-up windows that were followed by a blue screen.
In a panic or something I pressed enter and the blue screen went away. Everything closed immediately by itself and then showed my desktop.
Ever since, my background is blue with a yellow box that reads
"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!
Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

I haven't noticed any difference in how my computer is running, other than the fact that I have no desktop control.
When I right-click my desktop I can't change my wallpaper or any desktop settings.

I keep getting blue screens that go away after I press enter, although, my computer did shut off after I got one of the screens.

I've read posts relating to this but tried following the steps and things were too different.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

this is a rather complicated issue I've had for a long while.


I love history, and rather than fill my Favorites with all manner of web pages I've ever visited, I like to expand my history on IE to at least one year. I've never emptied my Mozilla Firefox history so I have records on every page I've ever visited on that web browser.


But starting several months ago, perhaps even a year or so, IE has been doing something where after several weeks worth of history pages are stored up, it no longer creates history entries.

Example: I can have twelve weeks worth of history in my history, and then starting on a new week, the Today folder will remain totally empty no matter how many pages I visit. This continues on and on.

I've tried removing the oldest week, but the newer history continues to fail to produce any entries. I'd even removed ALL the history folders, but it continues to not produce any new history. The only resolution I've found was completely dumping all my browser history (save for temporary files and cookies), causing a total loss of all the stored addresses in my address bar.


So I've done this for the past several weeks, and tried to avoid further instances by lowering the amount of days in my history folder.


But it kept coming back, and just yesterday it did something similar---removing all my history entries for an entire two hours of the day before I "caught" it, and it started recording history entries again.

and some cookies. However often I quarantine them, they reappear on the next scan and I also can't get the desktop to go back to its normal appearance, it's gone white with a big warning (as above) and refers to:

Hi there.

I am looking for some software to impose time limit restriction for logons (with more flexibility than the built in parental controls) and also time limits for running programs (e.g. 2 hours for program X, an hour for program Y, no limit for program Z, etc). It would be nice if it has remote management through a web interface, but that is not essential. I was wondering if anyone has recommendations?

I found Romaco Timeout, which looks like it would at least do what is needed for logons (and maybe programs, too), but this has been discontinued. It doesn't matter if it's paid or free, just something that is maintained and compatible with Windows 7 64 bit.

I've seen TimesUpKidz, which seems to be good but just does logon limits (as far as I can tell) rather than programs as well.

I know it sounds quite unkind, but my stepdaughter can end up spending all day just playing games and watching videos on YouTube (and similar sites). Her mother wants to put some limits in place, which we have already done at router level for Internet access. We don't want to have to keep continually spend our time "policing" her, but rather she has predefined time limits (which has worked well with her Internet time) and give her responsibility for using her time.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Daznov

An issue was brought up in another thread about 64-bit Windows 7 Home only being "licensed" for a maximum 16GB of total RAM.

I expressed my doubts because I personally don't see how Microsoft (or anyone) can tell me how much RAM I can install in my computer. I understand with software, we don't really "own" the software. Rather we own a license to "use" the software based on the terms in the EULA (end user license agreement) - and we agree to abide by those terms when we make the decision to keep using the software.

But with hardware, I own it - lock, stock and barrel.

I also understand how there can be "physical" limits based on the number of address locations available. For example, the commonly mentioned 4GB limits with 32-bit operating systems. And I understand there may be limits based solely on the physical capability (or restrictions) of the software - or even limits imposed by the support capability of the motherboard. But "licensing" (to me) implies a "legal" agreement - not a physical restriction imposed by the Laws of Physics.

As seen in this Microsoft document, there are indeed "limits on physical memory" for Windows but no where in that Microsoft document is there any mention of there being limits imposed through a "license" agreement between Microsoft and the end-user (us).

The source cited for there being licensing limits is this one, where the author says,

Welcome to TSG! Sorry nobody got back to you sooner. If your thread ever goes a few days without a response feel free to post the word "bump", which will move it to the top of the list and hopefully catch somebody's attention.

Sounds like you may have toasted something in the motherboard; I don't know exactly why this would be. Try one of the two options below:

1) Plug a known working monitor into the PC. If it works, then there is just some problem with the original monitor. Hopefully nothing else is wrong. If it does not work, then you have almost certainly damaged something inside the PC.
2) Plug the monitor into a known working PC. If it works, then you know there must be a problem with the board inside the original PC. If it doesn't, then your problem lies within your monitor.

Let me know the results and we will go from there.

A couple of days ago my laptop was working fine and connected wirelessly to the Internet. Yesterday it wouldn't connect at all, only locally, without access to the Internet. Other devices in the household can connect though. After restarting the router and my laptop numerous times, I did a diagnose and repair, and the only solution was "security settings on this computer might be blocking the connection. the following policy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect: policy provider: windows firewall, filter name: query user. If the policy provider is firewall click for information....". So I tried messing with the firewall settings and nothing helped. My friend walked me through updating my driver and that didn't help. I'm just really confused and I want my laptop to work again. It is an hp pavilion dv5-1235dx and the OS is Vista.

I have a Win7 64bit Dell laptop on a domain and the notify bubble "USB device not recognized..." is aggravatingly annoyingly every second popping up. A friend had plugged in their usb phone but the issue starting a few days afterwards. The laptop is on a dock 90% of the time and I only have 2 monitors, a wired keyboard and a non receiver mouse plugged it.
1. Opening up device manager, the window jumps up and down. 2. When I can finally click on the root hub with the yellow exclamation to delete it, the issue will go away,...until a reboot. 3. chkdsk and scannow didn't resolve it either or turn up idea errors.
4. Turned off, unplugged, and removed the battery for a minute or two. put it back together and still no luck.

Symptoms:

1. It reads 99% available (Plugged in, not charging).
2. HP Battery Care Adviser tells me that the battery needs replacing.
3. Battery was losing a charge (Plugged in, not charging) whilst on the HP dock. I transferred it to the charge on the computer itself and it charged up to 99%. The dock still reads my peripherals (external hard drives) just fine.
4. I don't need portability with my notebook. The reason I have it is because I typically spend nine months of the year in one country and three months in another. Otherwise, I'd simply use a desktop. So, I've only used the battery without the charger in a handful of times.
5. Notebook is only eleven months old. I have no other problems.
6. I run Vista 32bit SP1
7. I read online that a BIOS flash may solve the problem. I'm not too keen on a BIOS flash; but I checked just to make sure, and yes, HP released a new BIOS 7-2009. My own is, of course, a year old.

Thoughts:

1. notebook runs fine; if it ain't broke don't fix it.
2. This computer is like the Berlin wall of my life. If this goes, the whole thing goes; so I tend to be paranoid.

What do you think? Do I get a new battery? Do I just be fastidious about backups and not worry about it? Your thoughts appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Laptop Charger reads "Plugged in, not charging"

If you don't use it on battery then I would say no need to replace it - its not required for the proper operating of the computer. It does provide one nice feature, if the power goes out then you can keep running the laptop and not have it power off on you and lose your data. However being less then a year old I would be contacting HP and complaining, a battery should last more then that. If HP advises a BIOS update when you talk to them then I would do it, if it breaks its their fault, but it doesn't affect the data on the drive which if you care about then you'll already have it backed up to at least one other location.

Also try a lower resolution, and maybe lowering a few details in game.
Your card might be overheating from too much demand.

I did a search on that video card and see it listed as fairly low end, so there is a chance your system is making up for it's faults but is overloading it and making too much heat.

One last heat test you can try is leave the side case open with a small house fan blowing air into the computer.. if that lets you play longer then it's heat.
If all that does nothing and it still shuts off, there is a chance the card is bad.

There are more tests and monitoring software for heat, but I'm not that familiar with them, so we will need to wait for another person to post with that info.

I Have a HP Dv 6451 Laptop with Vista ultimate 64 bit OS
TSST Corp CD/DVDW TS-L632M ATA Device
Driver installed is 6.0.6002.18005 according to driver update driver is the latest
I can rip CD's I have previously burned with this drive, play CD's commercial and CD's I have previously burned with this drive, & play dvd's I have bought.
I am unable to write/burn any CD.'s data or music. I have tried using media player, itunes, explorer, & nero. I have uninstalled nero & itunes. I am under the assumption I can not uninstall media player since it's built into vista.
All software goes through the motions of writing no error messages but when I try to read /play the CD nothing is there.
What I need to figure out is if my device is beat or do I have a software/driver issue ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm new to these forums and I have a problem booting up my computer with my new graphics card. My monitor reads no signal when connected to the card. When plugged into the back of the pc, it just stays black. When I take the card out and start up my computer everything works fine.

I have a ATI Radeon 9600 SE 128 mb card (the low profile type) AGP. I'm running windows xp with service pack 2 and my PC has a pentium 4 w/512 mb of ram. The monitoir is a flat panel lcd with a vga connector. I haven't been able to get a picture with the card in place, so I haven't even got to installing the drivers yet or anything. My computer came with an integrated intel graphics controller, and this is the first graphics card I have tried installing. Any ideas why my computer is doing this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Monitor reads "no signal" with my radeon 9600 se

I know this may sound silly, but I've done it a few times myself, have you checked to make sure you've plugged your monitor into the correct video card? If you have, try plugging into the built in video card and making sure the 2nd video card is enabled. RIght click desktop, properties, settings, advanced and have a look through there.

I have a Win7 64bit Dell laptop on a domain and the notify bubble "USB device not recognized..." is aggravatingly annoyingly every second popping up. A friend had plugged in their usb phone but the issue starting a few days afterwards. The laptop
is on a dock 90% of the time and I only have 2 monitors, a wired keyboard and a non receiver mouse plugged it.

1. Opening up device manager, the window jumps up and down.
2. When I can finally click on the root hub with the yellow exclamation to delete it, the issue will go away,...until a reboot.

3. chkdsk and scannow didn't resolve it either or turn up idea errors.
4. Turned off, unplugged, and removed the battery for a minute or two. put it back together and still no luck.

If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.5. It is important that you reply to this thread.

Well, at least it's my battle.

So, the latest incident involves an AVG 2011 detection of an infected file called "curl.exe". AVG reported the file as being infected with a trojan downloader of some kind. Ok fine. I upload the file to VirusTotal.com for confirmation and 13 or 42 virus/malware scanners detected the same kind of trojan downloader infection. AVG 9.0.851, Avast!, AntiVir, and a few others reported the infection. NOD32, Kaspersky, Microsoft Security Essentials, and most others didn't report any infection.

So, I gathered some data and sent my sample to Grisoft, Avira, and Microsoft for analysis.

Grisoft support took a look and confirmed the false positive detection I suspected and will update their database. Fine. AVG isn't known for having a 0% false positive detection rate.

Avira support reported the file as being infected and indicated the detection was added to their database ("way back when") and stand by the reported infection. Ohhhhh-k.

Microsoft support took a look and confirmed no infection, just like MSE did. Cool.

So, once again... how does one establish trust of their anti-virus application of choice?

Next up, on the malware front I had an interesting false positive experience with Malwarebytes. Basically, I scanned a system with the "Total Security" application by Omniquad installed on it.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

When I open an old (2003) Exel-file with VBA-code in it with Excel 2007, I get one of these two responses
and I do not know what causes Excel to make different choices
-----------------
1)
A Dialog Box: "Microsoft Excel Security Notce"
This one is very similar to the one in Excel 2003 and that is how I want Excel to behave.
The user has to “Enable Macros” to go on and work with the file.

2)
"Security Warning"
This one is new in 2007 and the user can continue to work with the file even if he does not see the security warning.
That means that VBA-code that I (the programmer) want to run when the file is opened, does not execute.
--------------------------

My problem is that I do not know what causes the two different behaviors and cannot force Excel to open files with the first Dialog box.
Can you?

I think most of the info will be in the dailog screen, i'sn't there's more text in the dialog box than the text you mentioned?

It has all to do with the improved Security settings with 2007 and up

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hi, i am new to this. I am having this problem with a IE popup this few days.

What happen is, whenever I restart my cpu, before I can click on anything else, these IE popups will appear. A popup appear. Window title is "* * * *** System Warning! Microsoft Internet Explorer" and "Warning: PC Update - Microsoft Internet Explorer". I can leave my cpu on and it will keep popping up. Can get over 20 of the same windows though I am not browsing (in fact, not working with my cpu at all)

Don't know if this is created by the same problem.. that is, when I am bhrowsing with IE, I get redirected to http://www.yupsearch.com/search.php very often.

I have got Ad-aware6 installed on my cpu, but this time round, it is not working to remove my problems completely. Tried fixing with Spybot too. But still problem of pop up exists. Tried installing MSN toolbar hoping this will block popup... but it will not work after cpu restarts.

OK, I know a lot of people have had a problem with this one.
ANY site I go to redirects to this "Internet Explorer Warning" page and tells me to buy their software. Obviously, I wasn't born yesterday. No thanks.
Even getting to this site and trying to download Hijack This was extremely difficult.
But anyways, here's the log from the HJT scan.

CNN.COM/HLN announced earlier today that an E-mail message has appeared in the wild that contains a link and tells E-mail recipients they can watch a video of Casey Anthony's "confession" about the death of her daughter, Caylee.

Clicking the link allows hackers to place malware in your computer and possibly gain access to personal information.

Yesterday I started getting a popup claiming to be from "Security Center" and telling me that I have no antivirus software (I have AVG) and instructiong me to download certain files to fix the problem. The files are named:

Antivirus Security Package
MS Antivirus
The Spybot Antivirus
Spyshredder Professional Antispyware Suite

At the same time I got a series of warnings (which I ignored) and icons kept appearing on my desktop that gave links to porn websites. I ran AVG and Ad-Aware. both cleaned up a number of issues that were not there the day before. The porn links are gone but the so-called security center warning continues.

I ran Hijack This yesterday and again today and found a number of suspicious entries. I'm tempted to just get rid of them, but I would rather have someone take a look so that I can do this the right way. I have other minor issues that bug me, but I want to take care of the major stuff first. (Note: there are three other people who use this PC, all of whom claim innocence. Yeah, right)

Thanks for your help.

Here is the HJT log.

Big Kudos to anybody who can solve this one! Very little/nothing on Google or microsoft support site.
Here's the problem:

I'm helping a family member who has a new Dell PC with Windows XP Home, Outlook Express 6.
Every time they close Outlook Express, the following Warning pops up:
To free up disk space OE can compact messages. This may take a few minutes. There are 2 options - OK and Cancel.

Here is the rub: We've closed the warning, or we've clicked OK, or we've clicked cancel, we've checked the box that says don't ask me again....these warnings continue to come up next time (EVERY time) Outlook Express is closed.

This is a senior citizen who has, maybe, 20 email messages and no shortage of memory or disk space. I want to prevent this warning from coming up ever again. How do I do it? Is there some default I can change somewhere?

I am running a Toshiba SLI1 notebook and find myself unable to use my PC due to a warning after I enter my password while the files and programs are loading. Everything seems to be normal, but I can't be sure. Within 30 seconds of booting up, a message pops up indicating that there is a critical warning and windows is now shutting down. A new window follows, but I can't be sure of the code displayed because within very little time, my computer is already restarting. It first happened after the installation of a few programs used to convert and download viral videos to one's hard-disk. I don't know if the warning is connected with this, but it seems an odd coincidence. A prompt (after download the programs used to convert/download the virals) instructed me to restart my PC, but being impatient, I didn't do it until the next day. This is when the warning started. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So... my Windows Defender gave me a warning earlier ago. It said I had an infected system file named "hosts". I already removed the file from my computer, but it can still be found on my history. Look:

What is that malware about anyway? I know I already removed it, but I worry a lot about my computer so I want to make sure everything is fine.

So... can someone tell me why I got it? Is it really dangerous?

A:Windows Defender gave me a malware warning (file name = "hosts")

First of all the threat has been removed. You are no longer in danger from that particular threat. Malware is used to describe harmful software that has been installed on your computer. It can be very dangerous with the capability of hacking into your system, harvesting passwords, bank accounts, etc. In your case it was a medium threat. It usually means, pop ups, advertisements. Since it has been uninstalled it is no longer a threat.
For the future, download the free Malwarebytes and scan once a week.
Be sure that you have a quality Anti Virus such as Avast.
Stay away from sites that may be dangerous. Those are the ones that you really want to visit.

Hi,

My laptop has been infected, as a result I am seeing a blue background with a rectangular box in the middle. The top half of this box is yellow and says "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer." The bottom half is blue and says "Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

I have run Norton , Grisoft and Spy-Bot, none of which has removed it.

Help, I keep on getting a "Windows Security Alert" popup appearing that says:

"Warning ! Potential Spyware Operation!

Your computer is making unauthorised copies of your system and
Internet files. Run full scan now to prevent any unauthorised access
to your files! Click YES to download spyware remover ..."

This is currently appearing about every 5 minutes.

Also, I ran Spybot S&D, and it detected and removed Smitfraud.C

I just checked in my startup folder and found 2 programs that I think shouldn't be there "autorun.exe" and "system.exe"

I downloaded a virus yesterday (8/10) trying to open a video of the opening ceremony of the Olympics (I do not remember the exact URL). The virus was disguised as a video codec for Windows Mediaplayer. After I downloaded the file, a blue screen with a warning in a yellow box replaced my desktop image. The warning says:

"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer. Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

I have tried to remove it with McAfee Antivirus and with a Virus Removal tool I got from my University, but neither of these was able to remove the program. Can you help me?

I attached the two log files below. If you need any additional information, please let me know.

Thanks!

Hi!

Yesterday, I got a virus which changed the background of my Windows XP to a blue background with the message "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

Also, my screensaver has been changed to a fake BSOD and then the Windows startup screen which is highly irritating! On top of this, I am being bombarded with pop ups and redirections when using the internet.

I'm very tired of seeing this message booting me to desktop just to ask me if I want to change the color scheme because it perceives my computer is running slow. Load up Batman AC? 10 minutes in focus changes from said full-screen app to this completely unnecessary 'warning'. Battlefield 3? Same thing. Assassin's Creed? Same thing. Skyrim? Oh of COURSE same thing.... I dont need Windows to tell me that my resources are being used when I KNOW they are being used...

Am I really going to have to go into Properties and Compatibility mode for EVERY game I play? Why cant such a large money gobbling corporation be intelligent enough to know that when I click on the "Keep current settings and never show me this message again" means I NEVER WANT TO SEE THAT DAMN MESSAGE EVER AGAIN, FOR ANY GAME???

Sorry, its just ridiculous that I have clicked that button so many times yet it continues to show! It specifically says "Keep the current color scheme and don't show this message again" Yet even after clicking said button it still shows... Annoying!

I have a similar problem to what I have read from other users in this forum, however my desktop has been turned into a white background and the popup has a red background header; below the red header in the popup, it claims, "Warning! Win32/Adware.Virtumonde Detected on your computer" and "Warning! Win32/PrivacyRemover.M64 Detected on your computer".

This began yesterday while I was working online.

I purchased a cd and installed Webroot Spysweeper, but it only found low risk cookies.

I tried an online trial version of XoftSpySE and it found two trojans (Downloader Agent BXW Trojan), but it won't clean them unless I purchase the full version. I would, but I'm afraid to disclose personal financial info online in order to purchase the full version.

I did the same thing for "Registry Fix" Version 7, but I can't remove the found problems without registering online - I don't want to do that either for fear my personal financial info will be exposed.

If I try to open any file folder on my desktop, I get a Windows popup that says Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I can open the two or three files on my desktop that are files - not folders - however, they are just doc files or similar.

If I try to access my Control Panel, nothing happens.

A:Popup "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!" New version

I was given a bootable Kaspersky "rescue" cd today. I ran the disc and, after it did whatever it does, a black screen with a window opened. It was an operational window, so I chose "Scan drive c" and it returned with a message that my computer was at high risk. I clicked the "Fix-it Now", but it said the "databases were out of date" and should be updated. OK... however, there was no button or other mechanism to do this. I removed the cd and rebooted the computer. I am right where I was before.

I cannot go online to any anti-spy or anti-virus sites. It appears as though this virus recognizes those sites and prohibits me from going there. I typically get a messsage that reads, "Unable to connect." with a "Try again" button. I can't even go to this website!! I have to use my wife's computer to login here.

By the way, this is a problem on Firefox or IE. I can go to other sites, though. Yahoo, google, online stores, etc are accessible, but the desktop background is still hijacked and I have the same desktop warning window.

Remember... I can't remove it via any help from an online anti-spy or anti-virus site. If I try to access an anti-spy or antivirus site, I get the response as noted above. Unfortunately, this means I am not able to get past Step Two in your "5 steps before posting a log" thread. I did not find any rogue or suspect programs listed in step one.

Please help.
I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP2 with McAfee.
This problem just occurred last night.
Cannot remove this new "picture" from my desktop background, as the Display Properties options have been limited to the tabs "theme", "appearance", and "settings". Also, McAfee wasn't in my taskbar as usual, is so I had to run it from Start. So far it has found nothing.

My new background image is like this:
In an orange box: "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer"
In a white box right below:
"Warning! Win32/Adware.Virtumonde Detected on your computer"
"Warning! Win32/PrivacyRemover.M64 Detected on your computer"
On the very bottom, the words in the image of a clickable button:

Hello,

I've been having this problem for the past few days where my internet explorer (7) crashes everytime I run it (I'm working in safe mode now), and there is this red icon near the clock which says "Security warning: your computer may be infected with harmful or unwanted software" when i put the mouse over it.

I've tried running a full system scan with PC-Cillin 2006, ewido, spybot, trojan hunter but the problems keep occuring. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm running Windows XP Home and here is a log file from HijackThis....

My buddy opened up an email and downloaded some sort of virus/malware/adware that I cannot get rid of. My background is blue, and there's a yellow box that reads "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an anti-virus or spyware remover to clean your computer." Malwarebyte's and AVG both didn't detect anything, and I'm out of options.

here's an obscurity: I love IMGBURN, but apparently due to some other package I either have, or had, loaded, I get a warning every time I do a project now, which reads:

"Duplex Secure's SPTD Driver can have a detrimental effect on performance "

Can someone tell me about this? what is the *.inf or .drv file name? And what package may be the offender? I'll be glad to dispense with it if I had a little info

thx

Q: How can I disable SPTD on my computer to check if it causes problems?

A: If your system has some problems with SPTD installation you can do as follows:

If your system is already running then go to step 2 directly. Otherwise start from step 1.
Step 1. Boot in safe mode and press ESC key when you see on bottom line of display: "Press ESC to cancel loading SPTD.sys". This will abort loading of SPTD layer.
Step 2. Find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\ Services\sptd" registry key in REGEDIT and set DWORD Start value to 4 (i.e. disabled).
Step 3. Reboot again in normal mode and check if your issue is solved.
To reenable SPTD restore the DWORD Start value back to '0' and reboot your computer.Click to expand...

Every time I restart my computer the desktop is changed to a blue background with a yellow message reading "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer. Install Antivirus or Spyware Removal to clean your computer." My screen saver is changed to bugs. And it also changes the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" so that there is no background or screen saver tab in the display options.

I have followed the instructions for this problem from other threads to no avail. I have rebooted in safe mood, ran smitRem, Hijack This!, Ad Aware, AVG, Kaspersky, Registry Mechanic, scan disk, and disk clean up.

All of this and still every time I reboot it comes back up. I will include my current Hijack This! file.

My father who is very new to internet surfing used my computer while I was away. When I came back there is this message shown as a desktop background "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer" and I could not make any change to the desktop background. I suspected it might be some kind of spyware, but I could be wrong since my computer always ran ZoneAlarm and AVG in the background.

I ran Panda ActiveScan and found that the computer is infected. The scan result is attached as a text file (activescan.txt). I then ran HiJackThis and below is the result. Please suggest what I should do next. Thanks in advance.

Hey folks,

It looks like I've got a medley of virii. Prior to finding this forum, I attempted to fix the problem using several anti virus/spyware applications. While they found and apparently fixed some problems, the System Window entitled "Critical System Warning!" was not fixed, nor were the balloons that popped up from the system tray.

Here's what the System Window had to say:

Critical System Warning!
Your system is probably infected with the lastest version of Spyware.Cyberlog-X.
Type: Spyware
Infected Length: 266,129 bytes
Risk: High
Affected Systems: Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT, 2000 Server, Windows XP
Behavior: Cyberlog-X is a spyware program that monitors user activity, logs keystrokes, and track Web sites visited.
Symptims: Low Internet connection speed
Low System Performance
Secyrity center alerts
Strange pop up windows
Protection: Click OK to download antispyware software

After reading several posts, I ran ComboFix and it appeared to fix the obvious problems. Would someone mind looking at my logs to see if there are any processes running in the background? Is there any script that I can drag and drop into ComboFix (or any other solution) that would remove these processes?

A:Windows 7 local shortcuts "do you want to open this file" warning

Hi frdprodsup,As I know, it is a security warning to make sure that the user really want to take an action. It's a safety feature, why don't you want to get rid of it? As a work around, I would like to propose the following suggestions:1. Change User Account Control Settings.1) Click the Start button and type: UAC in the Search box.2) Click "Change User Account Control Settings".3) Drag the slider to a lower setting.4) Click OK.2. Configure Group Policy Settings.1) Click the Start menu and type: GPedit.msc in the Search box.2) Click on gpedit.3) Navigate to the following entry:User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Attachment ManagerIn the right panel of the Local Group Policy Editor, find the entry: Inclusion list for moderate risk file types. Double click the entry and check "Enabled".4) Under 'Inclusion list for moderate risk file types', type the file types: .ink (shortcut types)5) Click OK and restart the computer.Best RegardsDale

Hello, I read here and attempted to fix this before posting. Your forum is so informative and I think its great that so many of you help out here as volunteers.

The problem when I boot up is I have a black screen with a huge pop up stating "WARNING YOUR IN DANGER" then smaller print saying like 'all you do on your computer is stored on your hard disc' .......and etc.

Okay, so I ran my EZ Antivirus, Ad Aware, Spybot (everything is updated and I run behind Zone Alarm premium). My system is XP.

I followed the directions from another thread and through that I already uninstalled PC Guard through add/remove. Then I DL LSPfix and saved it. I DL smitRem.zip and opened up the RunThis.bat file (only after in safe mode later), I DL CCleaner and altered the options as per instructions from the other thread. I also DL Ewido Security Suite and altered the additional options as instructed. I killed system restore then booted in safe mode. Oh yes and I DL Hijack This.

Then I opened the RunThis.bat file and finished the disk cleanup completely. Then I ran Ewido and saved report. Then I started Ccleaner. I reset websettings under Internet Options. Then I went to control panet>Display>Desktoop tab>customize desktop>Web tab>Web Pages>then deleted the entry 'Security'. Then I rebooted out of safe mode. Afterwards I ran ActiveScan online and saved report. Finally then I did the HijackThis log.

Hello,

I need some assistance here. A user unknowingly clicked on one of those warning screens which unfortunately installed some icons (shortcuts) pointing to porn sites. I have tried to run some things, like SS&D and Tea Timer but it would not load (processes are showing). Also iexplorer.exe seems to have been loaded too though it;s not on the screen. Let me know what I need to do so I can get these scans going. Note that we do use Cisco Security Agent but that didn't seem to be effective.

Log of the HJT report is included. Note that the domain name in the O17s were change for security reasons.

Also in that log I only had 1 Internet Explorer window open, and though it says S&D is running, it was not visable.

All of this was done in safe mode, loading windows normally results with explorer.exe freezing.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: More information - I was able to get online and use an online scanner. Right now it has found Win32/Bagle.gen.zip and Win32/Autorun.LN worms. Since this is for work, I will not be able to do anything until I get back in tomorrow but please let me know what I need to do so I can at least log into windows normally without crashing out

Thanks!

I was recently the victim of a virus/spyware/trojan (probably all 3!) programme which did a number of obvious things:

1. Changed my background to a black screen with "warning: Spyware detected?" 'ahtn.html' is now my background.
2. Caused me to receive warning messages every few minutes, pretending to have run a scan on the computer (little red "X" next to the clock)
3. Took me to an internet page to download some virus fixing software (don't worry I didn't do anything [else] stupid like downloading it).
4. Disabled Task Manager
5. Keeps disabling resident scan on Avast
6. Probably much more...

Since the malicious software installed itself I have disabled my network card; rebooted the machine to 'safe mode without networking' and performed a quick and (now doing) thorough scan of all hard drives using Avast (should be up to date since it's always telling me it's done a database update). Although it claims to have found a series of Trojans I am not convinced it's on top of things and haven't ventured back into 'Normal Windows' or onto the www yet.

Also; I have a number of hard drives installed into this system... the avast scan is taking an age since it goes through them all... am I best going inside the box and disconnecting them before starting this? I suppose the query is if the malicious software moves between drives or just stays on my main C-drive.

I was browsing through the internet today and this bloody thing infected my computer. It removed my McAfee and I couldnt access my Task Manager, I could not uninstall the program, I tried deleting it's associated files (But by this time,as I had guessed, that that would not work either, as the programmer of this virus seems to have done everything possible to prevent it stopping)
Because I had no antivirus software I looked up on the internet and did a very stupid thing. I came across this website - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-my-security-engine
After reading another write up it seems that the solution that was on this site is linked with my original site of "My Security Engine".
As I had no other anti virus, i took a stupid risk and downloaded the software to get rid of the virus.
Ever since I cannot open McAfee and even after I have reinstalled it.
Please tell me what risks are my computer under and what can I do to completely get rid of this off my system, and how do I know the checks that are being done are covering every part that this virus has accessed.

I sent an email to a few hundred people and for around 40 of them i got this "Warning: message could not send for the past 4 hours" email back. I understand that its not a Fail message and this this is one of those "there are no stupid questions" things but i would like to know:

What does this mean anyway?
Does the person receive my email if i do not get a Failure message after this?
Is there a way that i will not receive this message and only receive total failure messages?

I had the a few hundred other messages go through fine so i don't understand what causes this to happen to just a few dozen emails.

Thank you for being kind to Stupid Questions
 

A:Solved: What does "Warning: message could not send for the past 4 hours" mean anyway?

Let's say I work for a company whose email goes to abc.com; you send to me at [email protected] and get one of those messages back. The message means, in essence, that your mail got to abc.com, but some kind of problem with the system prevented the message from being sent to my actual mail server or computer. It's possible that the reason my be that I was fired and you will eventually get a "hard" failure message, but generally it means that abc will fix their system and the message will eventually get to me.

I'm sure there are some exceptions but, in general, I will get the message if you don't latter get a "hard" failure message.

Hi, my computer was infected yesterday after I downloaded what I thought was a software update . My computer desktop background was changed to a blue background displaying the message "Warning! Spyware detected on computer! Install an anti-virus or spy remover to clean you computer".

McAfee detected a trojan and deleted it immediately, I then physically disconnected from the internet straight away, looked at the task manager deleted the file B2E.exe that was running from the temp directory. The software tried to take me to a bogus website to download their software and this was blocked by firefox =).

I then ran spybot, followed by panda activescan and HijackThis, the logs are below, could any experts help me out here? I goggled and found websites that tells you how to remove this manually, but not sure if this would be applicable for every computer and the adware may have change since.

Thanks in advance

Hi js200605


Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

Hello. I seem to have a virus/trojan on my computer.

I get a message down in the tray saying "warning! security report. your computer is infected! It is recommended to start spyware cleaner tool."

If I click on it, it does nothing.

I am running windows xp.

When I try to run any type of antispy programs it comes up with further errors such as TFORMAAW or TLVGrouper and closes.

When I try to go to Task Manager it refuses. It states that the Administrator has not allowed. However I am the only adminstrator account.

Please help!!

Hi, i am new to this. I am having this problem with a IE popup this few days.

What happen is, whenever I restart my cpu, before I can click on anything else, these IE popups will appear. A popup appear. Window title is "* * * *** System Warning! Microsoft Internet Explorer" and "Warning: PC Update - Microsoft Internet Explorer". I can leave my cpu on and it will keep popping up. Can get over 20 of the same windows though I am not browsing (in fact, not working with my cpu at all)

Don't know if this is created by the same problem.. that is, when I am bhrowsing with IE, I get redirected to http://www.yupsearch.com/search.php very often.

I have got Ad-aware6 installed on my cpu, but this time round, it is not working to remove my problems completely. Tried installing MSN toolbar hoping this will block popup... but it will not work after cpu restarts.

Please advise on how I can remove the popups and the redirection problem...

Thanks and regards.

I've been plagued with shortcuts that seem hellbent on making me want to turn off security settings in Windows 7 that are better left on.

Does this sound woefully familiar?

Well - here is THE CORRECT WAY (especially if the elusive "Unlock" option never presents itself - I certainly have never seen it on any property pages!)

Open an elevated command prompt window.

cd to your shortcut folder.

run the command:

C:\Users\YourName\Desktop\AFolder> icacls MyLink.lnk /L /SetIntegrityLevel med

You can use wildcards, but take care WHERE you do this. Also REMEMBER THE /L OPTION, because that ensures you are processing the shortcut, not the "addressed" program or file pointed to by the shortcut.

Note that the trick is in the (slightly counter-intutive) MEDIUM setting (med) rather than setting it LOW (which is what it often defaults to, thus causing the problem).

Personally, I like to create folders full of "themed" shortcuts on my desktop. Unfortunately, the default behaviour is that any shortcut moved to or created in such subfolders of the desktop(on my system at least) default to low integrity. You have to RAISE the integrity of the shortcuts to stop the endless tedious prompting.

If you cd to a folder full of shortcuts and further subfolders to that folder are also full of shortcuts, then using an asterisk (whilst potentially dangerous anywhere else) will update the ACLS for ALL the shortcuts - and apparently those in subfolders to... Read more

(Dell XPS 8500, 24GB, 1GB mSata system drive, two Toshiba USB3.0 attached hard drives)
I have a storage space set up on my Windows 1607 primary computer. (Storage Spaces is a feature of Windows 8.1 and later and Server 2012 and later.) It is set up with a normal pair of large capacity hard drives and is in two-way mirrored configuration, formatted ReFS. I see the "reduced resiliency warning" but both drives are marked as "OK." What is the meaning of the "reduced resiliency" warning and what is required to remove it"? I get the same warning with a similar storage space configuration on my test box, the only difference being that it is formatted NTFS.

I downloaded what I thought was a new online chat-based game today, "iP (imaginary palaces) castles of the mind". When I realised it wasnt what I thought I tried to uninstall it. My security told me the program was trying to copy itself numerous times on my system so I looked up ""iP (imaginary palaces) castles of the mind" copied itself.""

I found a report from a Professor about an Internet Worm which I didnt understand much of except that I really need to see if it is still in my system, and if necessary remove it completely. I have contacted the Professor by e-mail, but may not receive any help as he is obviously a very busy man.

So this is a warning to all those who are thinking of downloading iP. If ANYONE can tell me anything about how to resolve this please reply to this.
 

A:WARNING - Worm attached to game - "iP (imaginary palaces) castles of the mind"

The program is on "a million" different download sites and on the major reputable ones, so I would tend to believe it is not (normally) infected.

What site did you download it from?

"My security told me "
What security??

Did you uninstall it?
Are you having any issues with the PC?

You can always completely back out of it using System Restore.

Hi,

This morning my laptop suddenly began displaying a "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer" desktop message. I tried running AVG, but it did not resolve the problem. The issue seems to be related to Agent.AADP and Generic_c.VCZ trojans.

I've followed all five steps of the tutorial. My HijackThis log is as follows:

Hi,

I am trying to fix my friend's computer (the key word here is *trying*) and I ran across some things that I have no idea how to fix. First off, I used Spybot Search and Destroy in Normal mode and Safe mode to try and get rid of as much as possible. Even after doing this, I am still getting the world's most annoying messagebox with the title of "Windows Security Alert" The body of the messagebox reads as follows: "Warning! Potential Spyware Operation! Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to pervent any unauthorised access to your files! Click YES to download spyware remover . . ." I have no idea how to get rid of this.

Also, when trying to go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, I find that i can no longer access Control Panel (it says that the operation is cancelled due to restrictions on this computer, but there is only one account and it is admin). Now, Control Panel no longer shows up anywhere!

Posted below is my HijackThis file. I would appreciate any help with this matter. Thanks!!

A:"Warning! Potential Spyware Operation!" messagebox and unaccessible Control Panel

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning pr... Read more

I've been getting spammed with this for the past few hours, it's pretty big (~150k). I'm not 100% sure it's a virus, but I know Microsoft doesn't e-mail its users patches, and the e-mail accounts being used to send the e-mail are fake. Be warned!
