Warning: Windows Blinds Program

Q: Warning: Windows Blinds Program

Some of you may be aware of Stardock, they have various programs that can help change the look of your desktop, from icon packages, log-up screens, boot up screens, etc. You can change your Vista look to an older version of XP or another previous windows theme, or even a customized look. It seems like a lot of fun, but beware. I tried using a few of the programs to switch my boot and log-on screen looks, I had a not so friendly encounter with the blue screen of death after trying to reboot to view my changed stetting. The program corrupted one or more of my system files and rendered my windows unusable. I couldn't log into safe mode, do an image restore, I had no options. Had to start from scratch, format the partition and reinstall Vista. Lost everything, and I even still had that fatal system error pop up one time after reinstall, it hasn't come up since, but who knows if it's still lingering around.

Windows XP SP2This is Critical on my computer. and I need it FULLY uninstalled (Including Registry, and ALL other left over stuff, Add/Remove programs wont do the job). Here is the list of error messages I am getting:*On Windows Login, It asks me for a password for my account (Or saying its incorrect)- I click OK, then I gotta CLICK on my account, and then it loads to my desktop, while it actually should be automatically loading my desktop. I dont have a password set.*In User accounts (In Control Panel) I get the this error message when I click on either User Accounts, User Account Types or Switching Users: "Automation server cant create object" I basically cant change any settings in User Accounts, I can only create accounts and switch between them, Not that I want a user account but yeah.*I found that my Shell32.dll file is 25MB! Now that doesn't sound right, and there is a problem (Its Windows Blinds).Well, Reformating isnt an option. I am 15 years old, My Dad will kill me. There should be a way to repair XP without reformating and losing all my data (Thats what I want to do). So if anyone has any suggestions, help, advice or STEP BY STEP instuctions on FULLY removing Windows Blinds, and bringing my pc back to life, will be great. Thanks guys... Josh.

A:Windows Blinds

Did you do any of the things suggested below prior to uninstalling the windowblindshttp://www.stardock.com/products/windowblinds/faq.htmlIf you have configured WindowBlinds to start from the registry, please disable this option prior to uninstalling. We also recommend that you reboot without WindowBlinds before uninstalling to make sure locked files are removed. If you have added additional skins, you'll need to delete the \Program Files\Stardock\WindowBlinds directory to remove them. We've played it safe with the uninstall and not attempted to remove additional files.

Are there any limitations on how long you can have Windows Blinds before buying it? I know you can download it from www.download.com, but is that just for a short period of time?

Hi
I found a Vista theme on the internet called 'Broken Aero'. It looks really nice, but it's only available in .wba form. I do use third party msstyle themes on Vista, but I've enabled them by patching so I don't have to use a third party app. I tried Windows Blinds on XP 2-3 years ago, and it completely messed up everything, the icons would not display properly, sometimes they would change by themselves. even uninstalling it did not fix the problems.

does anyone use windows blinds on vista? and can they tell me if it causes any problems? the theme is really good and i'd really like to have it on my pc.
or is there a way to convert wba to msstyle? i can open wba with a zip utility and there are png's in it and a few avi's.

thank you.

A:does anyone use windows blinds?

I currently run it on my Xp computer with no problems, however when I put it on vista I had a few issues, so Id say wait on it for vista

hey guys, has anyone tried the windows blinds with seven yet, and does it work without problems?

A:Windows blinds and W7

think about it - new UI elements means new skinning techniques. so naturally, neither the XP nor the Vista version will work on Windows 7...

the windows 7 version is in very early beta stage right now. it doesn't even support transparency yet. you'll probably have to wait until well after RTM to get a good, working version.

and i have never changed any settings

A:why no warning when i run a program downloaded ?

Windows 8 uses the SmartScreen filter to perform an application reputation check, and it now does system wide (not just when downloading programs with Internet Explorer like it did before).






In Windows 7 when launching these downloaded applications, you get the following notification:


In Windows 8, SmartScreen will only notify you when you run an application that has not yet established a reputation and therefore is a higher risk:


The user experience for applications with an established reputation is simple and clean: you just click and run, removing the prompt you would have seen in Windows 7.

We have two Win 7 Pro machines.  If a program is running when we shutdown the computer there is a warning that flashes on the screen but the screen stays up for FAR too short a time to do anything about it.  Fortunately we are both good about saving work and closing programs before shutting down.  Is there any way to adjust that warning to stay on the screen long enough to read it and take action in case we forget to save?

A:Program running warning at shutdown

How do you know that it's a warning...if you cannot read it?
 
FWIW:  IMO, it's not unusual for programs to be running when Windows attempts shutdown procedures.  Such normally have little impact on shutting down, IME.

Running Windows XP - Service Pack 2.

I think it came from downloading some clipart from a foreign site two days ago. I woke up and a blue screen noted

"The application of DLL c:/windows/sytems32/fegufula.dll

And now everytime a new program opens, I get (Notepad used an example):

And I click OK and everything runs fine but it's non-stop. It's annoying.

Not sure if this is in the right forum but i dl and installed window blinds. But when i try to change the skin or the appereance, it goes through the process of trying to change it but it doesnt actually change. Everytime, no mater what skin i choose it goes to some old looking version of a xp theme. Like ,i will get the desktop pic from the skin i choose, but it never changes the start menu or anything else. I probably didnt explain it right but does anyone have any help or info? I might have to show a print screen if no one understands what im saying.

Have you checked to make sure you are running the right OS for Window Blinds? Was the correct version downloaded?

Perhaps it was a bad/corrupt install.
Try uninstalling the one thats giving you problems and d/l another copy.

I have a program off the internet that allows me to change from the standard xp colours to a numerous amount of skins.

Hi,
I have Window Blinds also. Did you check out the forum at WinCustomize?
http://www.wincustomize.com/forums.aspx I think someone over there could answer your question. Under the OS Customization. I don't make my own just download them but I don't think you can do that yet, but I could be wrong. I know I would like to change my background to a light color in some of the blinds that have a dark background, especially my Microsoft Works Calendar because it is unreadable in black or olive green. If you find out you can, let me know.

I have a bit of a problem, I am using a trial version of Window Blinds, cannot buy it online, need to rely on my Mother to buy it and she won't do it because of having been a victim of credit card fraud not long ago, and so she is adammant that she will not do it again, she won't be persuaded otherwise, so its no good even thinking about going down that route.

So my first question is: As I have a trial version, does this mean that after the time is up my system will automatically revert back to its normal desktop or not?

And secondly if the answer to my first question is yes, then is it available in the shops and if so which ones? I only have access to GAME and Zavvi (known before as Virgin Megastore) other than that, apart from HMV I am stuck.

I currently have what I would say for me is the perfect desktop, the wallpaper and skin downloaded from WinCustomize, I hope that all my searching to find a great looking look for my PC has not been in vain in so much as it will disappear after 30 days or so

Anyone know the answers please?

My questions relate to when downloaded Windows Installer Packages <WIPname>.msp update files from my ISP have no verifiable signature certificates, and there is a Security Warning message window, but the CRCs and file sizes can be verified - is it advisable to proceed to try the installation? My security settings for IE are set to medium, and I run the latest TrendMicro PC-cillin anti-virus software, and turning PC-cillin off gets the same response - i.e. I don't think that running PC-cillin is causing this situation.

okay depending on your answers to the following questions, my answer will either yes or no.

1) are you sure that you are downloading from the site you think you are at, or are you at a spoof site?

if you are sure that you're at the real site and not a spoof site (spoof site= fake version of a well-known and trusted website, designed to trick users into giving info to the fake version, cuz they think they're sending it to the trusted and well-known site, i.e. Yahoo or eBay), then proceed with caution.

if you aren't sure, then contact the company the site is for and ask if they are really the site you think they are. spoof sites probably won't get back with you but "real' sites will.

My Toshiba laptop battery (vista) keeps dying without any pop up warning whatsoever. I can assign a sound to remind me, but I usually have the volume turned down. I would prefer a pop up warning. My other Dell laptop has a pop up bubble that comes up at various stages of battery power. Is there some way to get this from Vista, or maybe independent software for this?
 

A:LOW laptop battery pop-up warning program needed

Copy the text in the following code block into Notepad.
Save it on the desktop as BatCheck.vbs. Be sure to change the Save as Type: box to All Files when saving.

Code:
[plain]strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\wmi")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From BatteryStatus Where Voltage > 0")
For Each objItem in colItems
If objItem.PowerOnline = True Then
Msgbox "Running On Battery" & vbCRLF & "Remaining capacity: " & objItem.RemainingCapacity, vbOkOnly + vbCritical + vbSystemModal
End If
Next
[/plain]
While connected to AC power with the battery fully charged, double click the file to run it.
It will display a popup saying you are running on battery, and a Remaining capacity number. I need the number when the battery is fully charged. Then I can modify this a bit so it will display percent remaining. Then we run the modified script as a scheduled task every 5-10 minutes, and only display the popup when the percentage drops below whatever number you want.

KAZAAKRYPTON TROJAN HORSE PROGRAM

SYNOPSIS:

KAZAAKRYPTON (and similar programs such as IGLOO KAZAA) are the beginning of a new trend in trojan horse backdoors which take advantage of people downloading "cracked" or "free" software, music, or pornography from Kazaa and Kazaa-like file sharing servers on the internet. KAZAAKRYPTON, IGLOO and a few others we have seen in the last few days all share a commonality. These backdoors depend on people downloading an executable file or archive of interest and then end up opening up a hidden backdoor server on their machine which then joins the file sharing networks, serving up more copies of the trojan among whatever files "innocent" users add to the "collection."

Analysis of these new trojans has determined that once initiated, they begin making multiple copies of themselves into a subfolder of the main "Windows" folder on the affected machines. The files produced tend towards 6 new copies of the original trojan per minute, rapidly filling up the hard disk of the victim with deliberately named filenames of differing size. The resizing of the copies and the filenames, often containing names shown above in order to entice downloading, makes it extremely difficult for a Kazaa or similar file sharing host to be able to determine which files are legitimate and which are backdoors. Because of the manner in w... Read more

Hi, I recently had some fake antivirus popup appear on my computer. I immediately scanned my computer and removed some viruses, but after that i began to get these bad image popups. I didnt pay any attention to what the actual virus was called at the time.

The message has a heading "Program.exe - Bad Image".
And inside the popup it says "The application or DLL C:\...\73058kou.DLL is not a valid windows image. Please check against your installation diskette".

Just recently the popup has begun to come up twice every time i open any program.

Also, ive tried to run GMER, but it always ends up freezing midway through the scan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I started using Window Blinds for a few days now and I have the "T3" theme which is pretty cool and all, but I want to change it.

Here is the problem: I downloaded another theme that I like (it is the XP Professional II). So, after that I go to "WindowBlinds Advanced Configuration". I look below and I see my theme which I downloaded. I click on it and I click "Apply this skin now". After I click it, it changes the toolbar below to the "classic" type and it remove the bar on top of the window, where you click on the "X" to close the window. And also my wallpaper didn't change a bit.

Is there a bug or something that I did wrong?

Okay, I download the file, after that, I'm stuck. How do I install the Window Blind on my computer? Everytime I run WinAce, or WinZip with it, it just shows the images and TGA files. Any help here?
 

A:Help with Window Blinds installation?

Been using Windowblinds for several years and it comes in an file that when you click on it, it installs itself and the first thing it shows is a screen where you put in the serial number. I remember several years back I was having a problem installing it and it turned out I had another copy on my computer, so run a search and see if that might be the case, if not E-Mail them and explain in detail what the problem is, they have a good support group.

Hi,
I've been having serious problems regarding computer security recently as drug syndicates have gained access to my computer. Symantec Security check persistently reveals open ports although i've installed their personal firewall. At present I get an alert warning me that an unrecognised program is trying to connect to the internet using different programs, such as Internet Explorer or Java. The firewall suggests "block", but when I block, I don't get any connection to the net or site at all. When I say "permit" I get a further messages from the firewall saying that unrecognised modules are being used to connect. In one instance the unrecognised program was identified by the firewall as iexplore.exe (in Program Folder), but when I blocked it, the internet access was gone.
Are theses alerts a sign that something is wrong? When I did Symantec Antivirus download recently, there was a re-direct update included, which I downloaded as well. Since then I have been having problems. I looked through the list of internet enabled programs on my firewall and found that one of the Symantec update programs listed did not have a digital signature, no autoconfiguration data and was not identified as a Symantec program, although all the others were. I blocked this program from accessing the internet in the meantime.
Does anyone have similar problems? What assessment can experts give?
Regards,
Brigitte

Right click on the installer and select 'Run As', then choose the Administrator account and enter in the password for the account and try it then.....it probably won't work if your default admin password is blank but you can change that if need be.

Also, try logging on to the default admin account and install that way (either in safe mode or using ctrl-alt-del twice at the logon screen so you can log directly on as the default admin.

Hi! I keep getting an Internet Explorer Security warning box that says: "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer." Beneath that message it reads: This program will open outside of protected mode. Protected mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website, please do not open this program. Then, below that message it says Name: Adobe Flash Player; Publisher: Adobe Systems Incorporated. You can click "Allow" or "Don't Allow." I've been clicking "Don't Allow" because I think it may be a virus. This message pops up whenever I try to navigate to a different website - they are trusted sites such as Google or MSN. I'm just not sure how to get rid of it. I have run SuperAntiSpyware which found some threats then removed them, but I keep getting this message. I also ran Malwarebytes but that found nothing.

HpHosts-Setup-Win32.exe on hosts-file.net appears to contain a very nasty malware.  I went there from the BC HOSTS tutorial and installed it on two computers.
 
On my HP, I also disabled DNS using that program.
 
On my HP, MBAM quarantined the resulting HOSTS file and there were two Hijack.hosts entries in quarantine - one was not restorable.  I downloaded and added the HOSTS file from the "hosts.zip" file (from the same site) and it did not get quarantined, so it appears this has to do with just the app.
 
On my Toshiba, I got a very nasty malware, possibly Symmi.  It does several wonderful things.  I have not yet figured out how to rid myself of it, and have sent a message to Malwarebytes asking for help.
 
It turns off the Internet, removes MBAM (paid) from startup, prevents opening MBAM, SAS free and avast! free (from the start menu, systray and desktop), disables right-click of those programs, causes Windows Explorer to hang if you right-click in it or the desktop, disables run as admin, removes MBAM from the start menu, prevents MB Chameleon from working and, if I actually get MBAM to open, MBAM's scan cannot get past "updating" because there is no Internet access.  It does NOT stop access to WinPatrol.  I even ran EEK from WinPE (flashdisk boot) and it only found one Symmi infection, but the system is still infected.

I did not notice any issues until I booted the laptop up last night and got the windows File Name Warning for a file names "C;\program".  I looked at the properties and everything was unknown but it was date/time stamped during my hotel stay.  Pop-up prevented Webroot from starting until I re-named or ignored the issue.
 
I have two accounts (one the original MS account which I never use).  I logged into the original account and did not get the same pop-up for File Name Warning which makes me think there might be something in the registry for the other login.  I ran a Webroot scan and a Malwarebytes scan both of which came up empty.  Some of the webroot features were not working which then made me a bit suspicious and in fact it only scanned about 7500 files which is way low. Also noticed that two hidden icons were present but the icons were not visible and could not be launched.

I've always found the 7/8/10 tutorials is a great source to customize Windows. This type of functionality was once provided by Microsoft in TweakUI.

With release 1511, I ran into a slew of unrecoverable problems as documented at Unanswered Problems with Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 8.1 Pro x64 forcing me back to 8.1.
With the Anniversary Update I again did a clean install. While installing my software I was careful to take many restore points and backups. The OS remained functioning until I installed the list of customization I downloaded from Windows 10 Tutorials. IF you read the cited post (above) you will see that restoring restore points or restoring files applets do no function. You even lose the ability to backup. I discovered if you boot from the installation DVD, the restore points are visible, even though they are not visible from within Windows. I was able to recover from the restore point I made just prior to running the Windows 10 Tutorials customizations..

I did not isolate which downloaded customization breaks Windows 10, but you will see a list (below) of what I downloaded. When I download an Enable..., I also download the disable..., so nearly half of these were not used. I list these downloaded customizations in hopes that the original poster can verify that the customization still works in the Anniversary Update and that it does not break Windows 10.

I subsequently found that most of these customizations were not necessary because the Anniv... Read more

I've faced this virus several times before as several of my friends got it and passed it on to me.

My dad asked me to help him with network and computer management on his computer and he contracted this virus about 6 months ago. He didn't take immediate affirmative action to rid the virus from his computer so I had a wonderful chance to see this virus in action and record the effects it had.
I'm calling this virus the Windows Dl? csrss.exe virus, for lack of a better name, or knowing exactly what the name of the virus is. The virus originally came packaged in a file called csrss.exe.

Here are the symptoms...

First of all, Norton will not detect this virus, nor perhaps any other virus scanner, because in it's original form it WAS NOT a virus. It turns into a virus after being downloaded or run from a computer. It will gradually absorb (either through copying or total transfer) command lines and program lines of other programs. This is how it grows and transforms into a nasty killer virus.
The first evidence I saw of this virus was that it disabled my virus scanner (in this case Norton). Almost immediately after Norton died, Norton's files were torn to pieces and were copied and redirected all over my computer. These were now virus files (Norton had become a virus, essentially) I began noticing that several files on the computer would be renamed or copied to new locations on running programs or rebooting. Several files were renamed very simply by its changing the fil... Read more

While working on my pastor's computer yesterday, I made a discovery that I wanted to pass on to all users who are using QuickVerse 8x.

It will work fine with Windows XP or XP SP1, but it will not work with Windows XP SP2.

I contacted the company and spoke to a couple of the head technicians there. They admitted that none of their computers have yet been upgraded to Windows XP SP2 and that they were not aware of the problem. They plan to install the upgrade in one of their computers in a few days and test it themselves, then contact my pastor with the results.

This problem only seems to effect QuickVerse 8x, but not QuickVerse 7x or 4x. I was able to determine this because my pastor has all 3 versions installed.

As soon as I find out anything else, I will post it here.

This site lists the software programs that Microsoft has determined to possibly have problems with Windows XP SP2.

Vista - Windows Defender just gave me a pop-up message that says
"Review Changes to Computer Settings" I clicked on it to find a VERY LONG list of Website addresses. Must be at least 100 of them.

Don't know if it's trying to tell me that these things are Bad and trying to download themselves onto my computer or what!
It asks me to Apply an Action (that if Permitted, it CANNOT undo it). Yikes - have no idea what to do here....or what's going on.

It lists the following........
Publisher: Not available
Agent: System Configuration
CheckPoint: Hosts File
and to Select an Action to either Permit or Deny.

Oh ya, also says- File (changed) @S-1-5-21-340 (and a bunch more numbers, and then) C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

Anyone? Know what's going on? Virus? Good thing, bad thing? Permit or Deny?

I just ran AVG, it found nothing. Ran Spybot, also found nothing. Just this Windows Defender warning to Review changes to computer settings. I don't know of any changes made or where all these longs lists of webiste addresses suddenly came from.

Help please......need to shut down computer and get on with day, but have to Deny or Permit this thing first and know if it's a Virus or what?

It's still sitting here, waiting for me to decide what Action to take. Have no idea!
 

A:Windows Defender -changes warning - Help!

I think what Defender is saying is that your hosts file is being modified by something. The host file maps websites to ip addresses, and is a shortcut method of looking up a web address to find the correct ip address. The usual way to find the ip address is through DNS servers.

When in doubt, Deny the change.

Symantec auto protect caught a trojan virus in a file that I downloaded yesterday and it was successfully quarantined. I have removed the file that I downloaded and also emptied quarantine folder of symantec permanently. Since then Windows Security Center keeps its red shield icon on the taskbar, saying that there is no protection against viruses. However, symantec antivirus is enabled, and there is nothing strange in operation. What can be the reason for the warning?

Hello, i'm attempting to help my mum setup her Windows 7 laptop. (securing it to the best of my abilities ect).
I don't know much about Windows. I've set up an admin account; and a standard user account for my mum.
The problem is, some wanted programs start up on boot and The little box comes up asking;
"Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer", These boxes are fine, and when a program does try to make changes, i'm happy for this to happen.
This happens at every boot though, when some programs that came with the computer launch to optimize the hardware. I don't want to disable these warnings, but i want to grant just these select few programs permission to open automatically in the background without typing the admin password at each boot.

How can i do this?

Thank you

I have a similar issue, my work around (Note I am not advocating this) is to remove the password from the admin account, then you only have to click the YES button. There is a excellent detailed discussion here How to get rid of "Do you want to allow..."?

A:Windows Security Warning

Welcome to Seven Forums Timberwolf460. I did some reading. What do you have set as your homepage? Try setting the home page to about:blank to see if this is the issue.

Chances are the page causing the problem is pulling content from a source off that domain, such as using frames but the content of a frame is coming from a different domain. It's not advised to set the security settings to Access data sources across domains. This is basically saying, allow this to happen, and don't bother me.

Unfortunately, you are then bypassing the security that is trying to prevent content from an unknown domain. If you add the page to your trusted zone, it will at least only affect that one page, but again, you are saying accept the situation. Really the troublesome web page should fix their page. If it isn't your homepage causing it, it will be harder to track down.

OK so Windows used to warn me my battery is low when it is at 10%. However, it no longer does, so it will now shut down without warning me to plug in my charger. Why is it doing this, and what can I do to make it warn me again? It is so ridiculous that I have to restart the computer just because the battery died and I wasn't warned by the system.

A:Why Is Windows 8 Not Warning Me When My Battery Is Low?

Hello TJ,

Double check to see what you have set under Battery in your Power Options settings like below. Make sure that you have the "Low" and "Critical" percentage and action set for the level and action you want.

Low needs to be a higher percentage than Critical for Low's action to be performed first.

Do NOT install the Windows 811493 and 330909 updates. These updates change the version of the Ntkrnlpa.exe and Ntoskrnl.exe files from version 5.1.2600.1106 to 5.1.2600.1133 or 5.1.2600.1150 or higher.

Many XP users, including myself, have suffered severe performance degradation after installing either of these updates. If you are having this problem, it is highly recommended that you uninstall these updates from the Add/Remove Programs list in the Control Panel.

If you have installed these updates and have deleted their $$NtUninstall$$ files from the C:\WINDOWS folder, you will not be able to uninstall them. I made the mistake of doing this and was able to recover only be restarting in safe mode with a command prompt and copying version 5.1.2600.1106 of these 2 files from the C:\WINDOWS\SERVICEPACKFILES\I386 folder to the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE folders.

Microsoft alleges that the updates conflict with certain antivirus programs and recommends disabling some of their protection features to prevent this from happening. Personally, I cannot see reducing the effectiveness of my antivirus program. Microsoft promises to deal with the problem and release a bug-free update at a later date. I guess we will all wait and see if the forthcoming Windows XP SP2 upgrade will solve the problem.

Windows XP Professional version 2002 service pack 2
Mobile AMD Athlon 64 3400+ processor

My computer will shutdown or restart suddenly. Sometimes you will see windows going through the steps and othertimes it will shut down with no warning. It is also lagging when using the internet especially. Ive run up to date virus checks with AVG, Ad-Aware and Anti-Malware and found some nasty malware but this didnt solve my problem. I have analysed my CPU's core temperature using Speed Fan and it seems to be running fine at an average of just below 50c but will jump as high as 70c with more procceses running. It comes down again quickly though so I dont think its a temp issue. Are there ways to test my power supply?

A:Warning - Do NOT use norton with windows 10

Welcome to the forum.

It is always best to use an AV product that the supplier has tested and advertised as compatible with your OS. Such a product must do things that are very system unfriendly by all normal standards. This makes compatibility a more difficult thing than for normal applications.

This normally isn't possible with Windows 10. You have to take the chance that there will be serious issues and be prepared to deal with them. That is one of the reasons why Microsoft recommends the Windows 10 preview for advanced users only.
Symantec does not advertise any of it's products as being compatible with Windows 10. It is very difficult to assure compatibility with an OS that isn't even finished. I expect that when Windows 10 reaches the consumer preview stage Symantec will take a serious look at compatibility issues. There is far more to an operating system than just the user interface.

The only good thing about IE I can find is that it has DoNotTrack and  it has improved its visuals.

I just want to pass on this warning. I've had this computer for a few months now and had NO problems with anything: system, programs, no crashing or weird stuff whatsoever. I had my auto updates shut off and DID NOT update Win 7 whatsoever. Suddenly, as if I accidentally hit some unknown shortcut keys, it began installing updates on Shut Down. First of all, this was completely unexpected, but I let it continue.

After the updates, I've been having all sorts of problems. First of all, at almost every boot the computer wants to run CHKDSK. It never finds anything and I took my pc through a diagnostic and all my drives, etc. are fine. Still, it wants to keep running CHKDSK. Also, my flash drive is NOT recognized although it is recognized by EVERY other computer I've tried and I've tried several.

Also, several of my programs became glitchy and one would not even run. Tried re-installing the Win7 compatible ones several times, but NOTHING. Had to go to an earlier version before it worked. So far, I've spent over a dozen hours fixing things. And, this is weird, for some reason my system restore points only go back as far as AFTER the updates were installed. So where are the older ones??? I've ran my system through virus check, spyware/malware check, disk check, etc. Everything is fine. There is a slim chance that this is coincidental, but funny how it all happened IMMEDIATELY after installing the updates!

Wndows XP machine shuts down without warning. No error messages, no sounds, black screen. Windows then starts up normal again when I push the on button. The time it takes that it shuts down is always different. This machine is build by me about a little over a year ago. It has a western digital Caviar hard drive 250 GB 7200 rpm SATA, AMD Athlon 64 Venice 2.0GHZ processor, 512 MB RAM.
Just upgraded to Norton Internet Security 2008. Also when doing a full system scan computer will shutdown during the scan. But also shuts down while working on the computer with any software, but like I said it is very randomly.
Any ideas what the problem is? Checked harddrive for bad sectors and did a disk scan on all the partitions. Hard drive partitioned in C, D, and E drive. Desk top also shows a "Remove Safely Hardware" icon all the time and when clicked on it it shows the harddrive. This I cannot figure out either. Has this something to do with it? I did not check the BIOS settings yet, should I?
Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help me out.

Hello All,

I was trying to find a solution to this issue, which just came up today on my Dell Dimension 2400 running WinXP. I didn't make anychanges to the system since yesterday, so I am not sure where it is coming from. It came up at startup, but shutting Google Desktop seemed to solve that. Now, however, it opos up when trying to run other programs, such as Picasa. In reading prior posts related to similar issues, I noticed the recommendation to run hijackthis and post log. I don't know what to make of this info, but here it is:

I'm tired of Windows telling me my network cable is unplugged, my computer may be at risk because automatic updates are off, my computer may be at risk because no antivirus is running, my wireless network has little or no connectivity, yak, yak, yak. It never stops and I don't know how to turn this crap off.

Windows XP Pro.
