Urllogic Pop-ups, completed all prereqs

Q: Urllogic Pop-ups, completed all prereqs

Hi, I have already run Ad-aware using the required settings multiple times and removed everything I can on my own. Ad-aware could not remove iboboi.dll and I believe that is the root of my problem. But on startup that file is gone.

Here is my hijack this log, with the analyzer. Thank you in advance for the help!

Let's see if these logs will show us anything:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Before doing anything, MAKE SURE that you can keep your computer on (at least until we get it fixed). This infection requires us to detect and remove it without rebooting or restarting your computer (unless the instructions say so). If you can't keep your computer on today, then I suggest that you don't get the logs yet until you are ready. With that said (when ready):

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the Generate StartupList log button. Post that log in your next post.

Right click on this link and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on Silent Runners to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called Startup Programs followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download Find-qoologic. Unzip the files to your Desktop. Open the qoologic folder and run the qoologic.bat file. Wait a few minutes for it to finish. When the dos window disappears, go to your C: drive and open up the log.txt file. Copy and paste the whole log in your next post.

Download DllCompare and run it. Click on the Locate.com button. Wait a few seconds and then click on the Compare button. Let it run, then click on Make a log of what was found. Post that log here. Note: If you are having problems using DllCompare (16 bit error), copy autoexec.nt from the C:\WINDOWS\repair folder to C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder. Now run DllCompare.

Post all of the logs in your next post. We need them all to get a fix for this infection.

Does anyone have some of the product codes for Windows XP? I cannot find my darn box that had it and I need to reload the O/S. Also, what is the minimum you can have on a PC in order to run Windows XP on it. I have an old Compaq Presario that ran Windows 98 and I am trying to upgrade it to run Windows XP ... only has 64MB RAM and I know I need at least 256MB ... any other help please.

And finally, I know there is a website out there that has the maximum memory you can put in a machine or how many upgrades you can do to a type of desktop / laptop but I cannot remember the name of it. If someone knows it and can tell me I'd be greatly appreciative.

Thanx

A:urllogic hater

Hello clumsy,

You have not posted a complete log. You are also using an outdated version of HJT.

Please Download and install: HiJackThis 1.99 .

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed and hit "Do A System Scan and Save Logfile".
Save the log in a text file, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.

Copy and paste your log in here, someone will look it over.

urllogic is putting popup ads all over my computer. I have Spybot and Giant-Beta but when it asks "allow/block" I get very nervous and don't know what I should do. I read and downloaded hi-jack this and am posting the log. Some of those "trusted sites" don't appear to be anything I would willingly associate with. I also downloaded avg70free but don't know what I should do with that either. I am a writer and I use the net for reference/research. So far, the ads are just a nuisance; who knows what they are really doing? I don't think someone should be harassed while sitting in the privacy of his/her home, drinking coffee listening to music while working in his/her jammies. Takes all the fun out of fuzzy slippers.
Thank you for reading. I hope someone might help.

A:Hijacked by urllogic...Help please!

Welcome to TSF.

You have an outdated version of HijackThis. Click here to get the latest version of HijackThis and run it.

Before you give us a new log here, if we gave you instructions for a fix, please do the fixes first and then post the new log with this updated version.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.

3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it.

OK, we'll need these logs also to fix this one:

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download CleanUp! (Alternate Link if main link don't work) and install it. Do not run it yet.

Before doing anything, MAKE SURE that you can keep your computer on (at least until we get it fixed). This infection requires us to detect and remove it without rebooting or restarting your computer (unless the instructions say so). If you can't keep your computer on today, then I suggest that you don't get the logs yet until you are ready. With that said (when ready):

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the Generate StartupList log button. Post that log in your next post.

Right click on this link and choose Save As...Save it to your Desktop. Make sure you have disabled any programs that may block/disable scripts (ex: Ad-Watch, TeaTimer, Norton, etc.). Double click on Silent Runners to run it. This will take a few minutes. It will create a file called Startup Programs followed by your computer name and current date. Open up that file and post all the contents here in your next post.

Download Find-qoologic. Unzip the files to your Desktop. Open the qoologic folder and run the qoologic.bat file. Wait a few minutes for it to finish. When the dos window disappears, go to your C: drive and open up the log.txt file. Copy and ... Read more

I am also having problems with the VX2.narrator and urllogic. I've read some of these other posts and my problem sounds the same. It sounds like no one can resolve the problem; I've tried McAfee virus scan and have been using Microsoft's Antispyware, Adaware and Spybot but nothing removes it permanemently. If I try to backup my document files and then reformat and start over will my backup files bring the problem right back again?

Any help is appreciated.

This urllogic popup stuff is driving us crazy, here is the real strange part. They started coming up randomly about a week or so ago but not very often. Then it has just got worse and worse and worse. I have ran everything I can find and it fixed a lot of stuff but this. It is to the point now that when the urllogic ad pops up and I close it my internet connection dies and I have to reboot. I am on comcast cable modem business account with high bandwidth running windows xp professional. I hope someone can help I am going nuts and no one seems to know how you get it or how to fix it. Thank you, has anyone mentioned or thought about some how reporting these people and maybe getting a class action lawsuit against them for this?????

Greetings all,
I am one of the many who have had a computer afflicted with vx2.narrator and urllogic and like many others, using spyferret, msantispyware, adaware and a host of other programs has not been able to rid my machine of the malware. I'm running a corporate laptop (the reference to install mode in the log is the process to gain temporary admin status) with WinXP Pro. The malware struck two days after a clean install. Any help figuring out which of the elements in this log points in the right direction would be most appreciated

I'm sure that I've had spyware on my computer for a long time, but I never really started having noticeable problems until around two weeks ago when I began to see urllogic and loadingwebsite pop-ups. Other popups include bidz.com, some insurance pop-ups, and some pop-up about a ringtone with an animation on it.
Before any of this happened, I had never had any problems with pop-ups.

In attempt to get rid of these things, I've been trying to "do my homework" and thus found this forum. I've been trying to follow other threads and in the last two weeks I have installed Ad-Aware, Spybot, HijackThis, l2mfix, Ispfix, and Hijack Analyzer.
All of these programs have proved to be very useful and with them I seem to have managed to correct some things.
I *did* find a lot of spyware on my computer using Ad-Aware and Spybot, including VirtualBouncer, NetworkEssentials, Ezula, ntechin, SED(inetfuel?), and others.
These continued to return again and again, despite my efforts with Spybot, but after downloading HijackThis and working with the TeaTimer on Spybot (making sure it doesn't allow these programs to be added to the registry), they *seem* to have finally subsided (haven't seen them in a few days, which was a rarity before), yet there are still some problems which refuse to go away.

I have explained the pop-ups I have been getting. I also currently have a program called "DMVlite" on my Add/Remove programs... which I thought I had gotten rid of once via... Read more

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Good evening..i have just completed the combofix scan on my Openlabs Neko TSE. Which is my music workstation with a built in computer. Please can you review my log for further advice.? I really appreciate you for this. This workstation is the key to all my productions. I have been freaking out all night. Aloha!

Desktop machine.
Windows Vista Home Prem. 32b.

The computer shut itself down a few days ago while it was copying for files.
Then, it behaved abnormally after restart.
A back to the factory status recovery was performed, but it did not complete the task.
The last part of the recovery did not run.
The recovery disks, burned right after the purchase of the machine and used before, were used and they ended the same way.
The last part of the recovery did not run.

There are 3 partitions on the HDD.
Partition 0, 20GB. hidden, keeping the recovery OS.
Partition 1. 223GB. partition C.
Partition 2. 220GB. partition D.

Question:
If partition C is formatted, can recovery OS be installed on partition C ?

Thanks.
 

A:Recovery can not be completed.

Hello

I needed you to go all the way through the steps. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present. As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic (Updated!) IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting A Log, download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.


Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.

I have a couple of Word 7 files which can't be moved, deleted or renamed. Any attempt results in a message: This action cannot be completed as it is in use by another program. It is not in use by any program I am aware of. When I open the file, it says (Read Only) in the title bar but the properties dialogue boxes are not checked as read only. Of course, I can't save any changes to the file unless I go to 'save as' but that still leaves me with an undeletable/uneditable file. I am using Vista Ultimate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:This action cannot be completed...

Unless you're particularly interested in the mechanics of why this might be happening, I'd suggest booting to safe mode (press the F8 key early during Windows startup) and moving or deleting the files from there. You probably won't have trouble deleting the files that way.

Now I have to save up my pennies to get myself a better processor, I have an AMD Athlon XP Pro 2000 and was wondering what i should replace it with?

There's a fair ammount of choice out there so i was wondering if anyone has any recomendations?

Nice speed jump!
Upgrading always starts with budjet. If you are going to keep your Mb , then simply buy the best (fastest) CPU you can afford at the time.If you are saving pennies you will probably be able to get the quickest cpu your mb can handle.

Hi,

Having successfully performed a 3 hour chkdsk by means of a downloaded microsoft program which did this automatically, the screen is left hanging and there is no option available to exit from it. I tried switching off and then on again but this just puts me back to the start of the chdsk routine which then completes again. So I'm stuck in a loop from which I can't escape !! What do you recommend ?

A:After chkdsk has completed

Hello ,

here is a shot in the dark

turn your system on & then back off

then un plug your system

them push your power button as if you wanted to start it and hold it for a count of 10

this will clear the compleat system of power and maybe reset way your system starts / you may want to reset the bios also by crossing the bios jumpers or just pulling the litheum battery from your mother board for at least 3 minutes

then try your system

you may be looking at wipeing the driver & reinstalling

have you tried to get into the recovery console useing the Windows XP cd ?

G'day, I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a Dell Inspiron laptop.

When I am trying to organise my music files and folders in my music Library I randomly get this error:

The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program.

But there can be nothing else open, no media player, (neither WMP or Media Monkey which I usually use), or any other window open at all. This is intermittent. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

For example; I just discovered that I have a Chris De Burgh folder with a couple albums in it and another folder titled Chris De Burgh - Greatest Hits. I decided to move the latter into the former and rename the latter to simply Greatest Hits. At first it wouldn't copy into the Chris de Burgh folder at all and the dreaded error came up. I clicked on another folder, went back and tried again and it worked. After putting the CDB-GH folder into the CDB one I tried to rename it, (without opening it). The action can't be completed blah blah blah. Retry doesn't work. This time I had to close windows explorer and open it again and browse to the folder and rename it.

Sometimes it works first go, sometimes you have to click elsewhere then come back to it, sometimes you have to close explorer, sometimes it simply refuses until I restart the pooter. I've tried deleting everything in the temp folder, (%temp%) but there are files in here which won't delete either coming up with the same message. I guarantee that the f... Read more

I got my P50 a few weeks ago and yesterday its LCD went half black. OK, this happens.I turned it into authorized premium repair center and they got LCD replaced (as my P50 is under warranty). No big deal.However, they could not re-calibrate the new LCD screen because I do not run Windows on my P50 (running Kubuntu).It would not be a big deal either (the Panel Replacement Utility they have does not run on Linux, but I can live without that), however there is one worrying thing: by my request, they printed Lenove repair instructions for me where it is stated, that "Failing to run the Panel Replacement Utility program will require another LCD panel replacement". Please note "will require". My interpretation of this statement is that LCD will fail again unless I run this Panel Replacement Utility which requires Windows (not Linux version exists). Repair guys could not comment on that in either direction.REALLY????So, despite the fact that nor P50 user guide nor warranty description limit me from using non-Windows OS, the P50 cannot be repaired to be used in full capacity unless I use Windows.Do I miss anything? Is this an official position of Lenovo on non-Windows OS use on ThinkPad P50?

I am using SQL Server 7.0.
I have databases DB1 (only current values) and DB2 (both current and old - keeps history). When I update (or insert), on DB1, a copy of the row I am working on has to be sent to DB2 using a trigger. What gets completed first? The update process on DB1 or the action started by the trigger? I am asking this because of what I found at this site:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/architec/8_ar_da_1tup.asp

…..
You can use the FOR clause to specify when a trigger is executed:
AFTER
The trigger executes after the statement that triggered it completes. If the statement fails with an error, such as a constraint violation or syntax error, the trigger is not executed. AFTER triggers cannot be specified for views, they can only be specified for tables. You can specify multiple AFTER triggers for each triggering action (INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE). If you have multiple AFTER triggers for a table, you can use sp_settriggerorder to define which AFTER trigger fires first and which fires last. All other AFTER triggers besides the first and last fire in an undefined order which you cannot control.

AFTER is the default in SQL Server 2000. You could not specify AFTER or INSTEAD OF in SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier, all triggers in those versions operated as AFTER triggers.

…..

This statement sounds confusing?
 

A:Which is completed 1st? a transaction or a trigger?

Enforcing Business Rules with Triggers
Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 provides two primary mechanisms for enforcing business rules and data integrity: constraints and triggers. A trigger is a special type of stored procedure that automatically takes effect when the data in a specified table is modified. A trigger is invoked in response to an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement. A trigger can query other tables and can include complex Transact-SQL statements. The trigger and the statement that fires it are treated as a single transaction, which can be rolled back from within the trigger. If a severe error is detected (for example, insufficient disk space), the entire transaction automatically rolls back.
This means that the trigger completes before the transaction, you can rollback a transaction within a trigger as mentioned above so in your case the action started by the trigger completes before the update action.

Hi
 
Looking for some help resolving this issue. Computer was acting strange. Scanned with Norton 360 and Malwarebytes and found nothing. Ran TDSSkiller, found and removed a rootkit. Now, when I try to  run Combofix, it stops at Stage 48. The hard drive light is solid, so I figured it would eventually complete, but it does not.
 
Can you help?
 
thanks

Hello,

Had the "Security Center" come up on this computer...got rid of it using the tutorials on this site, along with trying all the other suggestions for removing rootkits that may be causing the redirects. Some solutions seem to run their course, others don't. Still having issues: browser redirects, browsers stop working, MBAM errors, Start menu blank, "waiting for background programs to end" on shutdown.

So, not sure where to go from here. Help please.

Hi I just completed my second homebuild, I installed windows 7 pro and have been running it for over two weeks now, (got it pre release from msdna for free, thats right free, gotta love being a student, as many copies of 7, vista, xp and visual studio, and tons of other cool software for nada.)

anyway:
asus m4a78-e mobo
8gb (4x2gb) ddr3 ram
amd phenom II 945 3.0ghz quad core processor.
xfx hd 4850 1gb gddr3 gpu 256 bit with 512mb onboard already
2 x 500gb hitachi deskstar hdd's
sunbeam acb9 acrylic green led pc case (12 green leds, with 5 80mm green led fans, and custom fan grills.)
19" tft
650tx corsair psu
onboard sound and networking

it works great, so far I haven't seen the cpu go over 8% you through stuff at it it gives you a blank look and shrugs, it took a virus scan, dreamweaver, word and a few web pages (chrome) at 8% for god's sake. Anyway i'm very pleased with it.

BUT it only lists one hdd in the my computer section and that is the drive that i installed windows on, I don't know if the other one is formatted or not, I would say not, the bios recognises both of them, but my computer displays only one, i have not used raid in any form. Whats the solution?


Thanks alot, bob.

On "My Computer" Icon right click it and click MANAGE, click on DIsk Management..you may find your C: drive as Disc 0.

I apologize if this forum is meant for tech people as I'm a novice computer user, but I really need help.  I have Windows 7 x64 and I used RoboCopy for the first time, and have messed up royally.  I was trying to copy folders and files from my
computer to an external hard drive.  My external hard drive had important files and folders on it already, and I thought that copying more data using RoboCopy would just add to it, but it deleted everything that was on the external hard drive when it
copied the additional data.  
Can I undo what just happened?  Is there any way to revert?  Or maybe there's some way to recover that deleted data?
I used:  Robocopy C:\Users\Name\Documents F:/MIR /dcopy:T
I would be really grateful to be helped.  Thanks in advance.

A:New netbook setup not completed,

Hello, Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Is this re. Windows login ? You can't login to Windows? If yes, I have encounter such a problem once only but was with Win 8. Anyway - if this is a new computer you can revert the software back to factory default settings. Eventually you should create a local account (not login with Microsoft account). At the end, you can always migrate the local account to Microsoft account. If this is not re. Windows login, please provide back details.

Dear Broni and All,

I have completed all steps, and ran the security programmes recommended in this thread:

http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/keep-getting-stupid-shopping-malware-installed.208648/

However, I am still getting pop-ups and adware related problems, which means that the underlying problem has not been resolved.
These are the programmes that I have run (today, 18/05/2015):
-RogueKiller
-Mbar
-AdwCleaner (it removed NickelBlock, AllCheeiaPPPriCe, DowwnSaave, SaVieNeewaApupoz)
-Junkware Remover
-Farbar Recovery Tool
-Farbar Security Scanner
-Security Check
-Tempfile Cleaner

I am currently running Sophos.
My laptop runs Windows 8.1, and Combofix does not support it.
The antivirus that I have is Kaspersky (I previously had Microsoft Security Essential), and Windows Defender. The malware was not detected by a Kaspersky and Spybot full scan a few days ago. However, on the 26th of April, I manually uninstalled some adware, and then ran full scans, which showed nothing.

As you can imagine, I don't think I have many options left, and formatting my laptop is a dreadful prospect. I was wondering if you could give me some advice.
I have kept all logs of the security programmes that I've run.

Thank you in advance, and looking forward to hearing from you.
 

A:Completed all instructions, but still getting adware pop-ups

Welcome aboard

Never follow steps from other topics. Every computer is unique.

Please, complete all steps listed here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
Make sure, you PASTE all logs. If some log exceeds 50,000 characters post limit, split it between couple of replies.
Attached logs won't be reviewed.

Please, observe following rules:

Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest.
Never run more than one scan at a time.
Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.
I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me.

I just started using Microsoft 2010 and in the Outlook tasks I have created recurring tasks. In the old XP version when I completed a recurring task, the completed task would move to the top of the list. Now, it just puts it below the original task. Is there a way to automatically move completed tasks to the top of the page?

Hi, I just built a new computer, and it's running XP Pro 64-bit. It ran fine for the first week, but now I'm getting a problem everytime I open "My Computer". Instead of showing my drives, it does the search animation. After a minute or two, it will either find all the drives, or it will say something like "This operation could not be completed because (something) is being used by another program." and gives me two options: "Retry", or "Switch To". When I click "Switch To" it opens my "Start" menu.

A (possibly) related problem is when I open IE, I get shown a set-up menu, but when I click "Save Changes" the webpage hangs. I can bypass this and use the internet fine though. Also, my computer randomly hangs sometimes when playing games.

I'm pretty disappointed with all these errors on what was supposed to be my fresh computer... Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

This is a follow-up to my original thread here -

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ease-help.html

I completed 1 RMA with HP and the teleplan service center guys sent me the machine back with the note - no issues found, reloaded OS. This time they loaded the OS with SATA controller as IDE as opposed to the default RAID setting that had come when I had purchased the system.

I let it run overnight hoping for the best but see the BSOD error in morning - I would really appreciate if somebody can pin point the issue so in the next RMA I can advise HP Teleplan guys about it - they seem to not spend great deal of time researching the issue but try to do a quick fix that obviously didn't work.

Appreciate all your help !

Your dumps indicate conflicts and memory corruption. Uninstall Symantec using this removal tool: Tool. Many third party security programs create conflicts with Win 7 and Norton is no exception. Norton was involved in one of the crashes. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials. It will not cause conflicts. Make sure Windows firewall is turned on.

Uninstall or upgrade CyberLink. Its driver, 000.fcl, Fri Sep 26 09:11:22 2008, is out of date. Outdated drivers can and do cause conflicts and BSOD's.

I find another slightly out of date driver loaded on your system. Update this driver from the link provided.

usbfilter.sys Fri Apr 03 07:39:51 2009 - AMD USB Filter Driver (likely part of the chipset drivers). http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx. Update this driver.


Follow these suggestion, reboot and let's see if your system is more stable. Post back and let us know. If you get anohter BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

I had a problem with my yoga 700 11". The laptop freezes every so often (3-6 hours). At first I thought it's the drivers that need to be updated, then Windows 10 updates, then BIOS update.I tried all of that but the problem still persisted. I did the recovery reset but still the same... I created Linux system on USB flash drive and booted the laptop with it. Even under Linux the laptop was freezing.I contacted lenovo support team and they said the laptop needs to be repaired and they send me the return free postage vocher. I put my laptop in the original box and posted it as I was instructed (for some reason it was send to Germany). The company name that issued me with the postage slip was MEDION AG - A Lenovo CompanyAfter 13 days I got an email saying:"...After assessing your device, the repair center has deemed that a repair cannot be completed under the manufacturer?s warranty due the case of the device showing signs of inappropriate treatment. ..." There were two pdf documents attached to the email. one with the detailed photos of the damage ( see photo attached) and the other one, the cost estimate document. In the document I was given two options:1. accept the cost of repair (£54.65)2. not accept and the laptop would be return to me (I would be still charged fat price of £44.07)My reply was that I do not recall the laptop having this damage and I always looked after it.

hi guys,

every single time I try to rename a folder the boring message "The action can't be completed because the folder or the file is in use" appears even if apparently neither the folder or a file in it is in use.

What I have to do is: Task Manager > Explorer.exe > End Process > File > New Task > Explorer.exe and I am able to rename the folder.

It is a really boring process and I find this process really stupid. The folders I am trying to rename are full of pictures, I think it is something related to the Thumbs files.

Anybody of you have the same issue? Any possible solution?

Thanks

The action can?t be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program. I suspect that my anti virus, Norton 360, is stopping me from deleting a specific folder, it happens only in one specific folder.
When I restart my computer, it takes time to the regular background tasks to "wake up", so I can delete it once the computer turns on, but then something stops me from deleting the folder. I am not sure if it is Norton 360, or another problem.
Would it be a Malware?

to see if its Norton 360. disconnect from intern ,disable Norton360 temporally ,how to do so will be in the settings of Norton , after its disable try deleting file.

just found this in google ,how to disable Norton temporally .

Try right clicking on the 360 icon in your notification area. You should be able to disable protection features for a specified time. Remember that you are unprotected while doing this, so you should disconnect from the Internet while doing this. Remember to reset the protection when you are finished.

I'll give some background.

I have a tri-boot setup. Windows 8 one ssd, windows 7 pro on a second ssd and ubuntu 13.04 on a partition on a 2 gig raid 1. The boot partition is on the windows 7 ssd. All drives are on the same Intel controller. Prior to the 8.1 attempt it worked. I'd boot the w7 ssd and a black win7 style boot screen would appear with the 3 OS choices. I'd been using win 8 as primary since it's release with no real issues.

I updated through the store early today and the process had a hitch after the first reboot but I rebooted and it completed the install. Windows 8.1 started and walked me though an initial setup. Once in, all looked pretty much unchanged. The only issued was it asked me to reinstall some XLan software.

I rebooted to check my other OS's and the problems began. I boot up, it loaded the blue win8 boot screen with all 3 OS present when I attempted to boot ubuntu it went to a black screen with no possible input. Hard rebooting brought up the grub bootloader (not win8 bootscreen) and I was able to enter ubuntu. Same thing happened with win 7 pro. I soft rebooted and the win 8 bootscreen appeared. Choosing win 7 took me to a hung black screen - hard reboot directly started up win 7. Restarting to win 8 bootscreen again and choosing win8.1 took me to another black screen - Hard reboot from there started up a win 8 repair process.

This is always the case with each of the 3 OS's. I have found that I can get into win8 if I enter through safe mode ... Read more

A:8.1 update completed but problematic

I have the exact same problem. I even had the XLan error you described. Once I restarted the computer, it always go to a black screen. I do not have multiple OS's to boot into, but the black screen always comes up after the little blue windows 8 loading screen.

If you get your issue solved, please report back.

Update:

When I tried your suggestion of enabling Debugging, it loaded up. However, 1-2 minutes later it would freeze and I would have to push the reset button on the machine. In Safe Mode, I didn't have any of the freezing, but when I tried to uninstall Norton Internet Security, it would freeze. After a restart, I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool, and removed Norton. At this point, starting Windows 8.1 with Debugging allows me to stay freeze-free. However, trying to start up without Debugging gives me the same black screen.

Another thing to note is that when I have all non-Microsoft services stopped, I still get the black screen upon bootup. I'm not quite sure what Debugging mode does in terms of bootup, but its definitely a workaround for now. I used msconfig.exe to keep debugging turned on for now.

Again, if someone figures out the fix, report back.

I've run CHKDSK on a couple of laptops today, and in each case, after hanging for ages around 10-11%, the laptop rebooted while my back was turned. (The process was run at boot and the internet was not connected at the time.)

Is there a way to check if the process completed and what it did?

There is a CBS log with today's date, with entries that correspond time-wise to the CHKDSK activity, but I don't understand them. At the end there are several entries like this:

Can anyone explain what this means please, and if I have a problem?

An old GF called me with a *lovely* problem..

She was cleaning up old files on her machine.. And seems to have cleaned way too much.

Now, when she tries to use the add printer wizard, she gets 'Operation Could Not be completed'. I checked Microsoft, and got info on the spooler not running. Trying to start the spooler (which DOES show stopped) get's a 1068 error.

I'm NOT an XP person (She's got XP Home).. and she's in another state, so I'm helping via the phone... We've been trying to use the Restore, but it keeps failing, and suggesting we try a different restore date/time.

On older systems, I'd know what to do, but under XP, I have no clue.. Any ideas? Or even ideas where to start?

Thanks!

Oh! It's a cannon printer (not that she's getting far enough for it to be relevant), and she's tried using the install CD that came with the printer, only to have it tell her that installation has failed.

Yeah! It's resolved... But, for posterity, I figured I should say how...

When she was deleting the programs, there were a few things that she though were old, but she couldn't get rid of for some reason. So she changed (don't shudder) them from .exe files to .old files.

When looking at the Spooler, and the dependancies and such, she noticed one file name that she remembered doing that to... She undid it (by hand),.... and Ta da! All fixed!

A:Backup completed but some files were skipped

Hello Joseph,

This error means that one or more folders that you selected to be included when you setup Windows Backup is no longer available to be backed up. Thus, it was skipped while backing up the others.

You can use step 4 in the tutorial below to "Change settings" in your Windows Backup to uncheck any included (checked) folders that have been deleted or moved.

Afterwards, you should stop getting this error.

This is kind of driving me a bit bonkers now, as I am trying to organize the files on my system, and am consistently butting heads against this problem. It always seems to be the last file I highlight. In other words.. I have two directories open on the screen, and am simply looking to drag files/folders from one directory to another. To do this, you almost always have to highlight the folder you want to move, and doing this seems to put a lock on that folder. If I highlight more folders, it seems to be ok, except for the last one I highlight will always fail to copy.

Any way to prevent windows from locking files in this way?

Unfortunately, i have a budget of 500 quid, which was broken a bit by Vista, so cant break it any further
Thanks

A:Completed Idea for a rig. Comments and Ratings please?

that's one heavy computer... (just kidding)... I can't comment on the price, but the only think you listed that may not "work together" because it's often overlooked is the power supply. You didn't say which one you are using, but cheap power supplies and often those included with cases will not work with high-power systems (core 2 duo + 3870), even though the power supply may advertise high power ratings.

I used to have two desktops A & B, they have internet sharing and printer sharing , they were working fine.

Desktop A XP Professional SP2 PC has got two printers (HP and Samsung) connected directly (USB cable), and Printer sharing is turned on .

I bought another Desktop to replace B, because B is an old PC.

From the Desktop B (XP Professional SP2), when attempting to chose the option :
A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer Click to expand...

, to add a shared printer , I can browse and see the printers name (hp and Samsung), however, when I attempt to
connect both of them, I get the following error:
cannot connect to the printer operation could not be completed errorClick to expand...

Do I need to have admin account with their passwords on both Desktop to be able to share the printers ?

I have seen this, but I could not find as solution to my case.

A:Cannot connect to the printer operation could not be completed

Both PCs have XP prof SP2, and both of them on the same workgroup name (MSHOME).

There are no firewalls running on both PCs

I am trying to install win2k from CD on an older machine that once had windows installed. I have formatted and partitioned the drive and is recognized during setup. The setup displays that it has completed and needs to reboot but when the pc comes back the setup process starts over again from the beginning, wants to format the same drive, and states the format will delete a found windows folder on that drive. I have no other option but to format or cancel the install.

A:Win2K setup is shown to have completed but has not

It sound like it is booting back into the CD. After setup has been completed remove CD.

@DerbyDad03 provided the following code, which I amended the targets to suit my personal needs:Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Column = 1 Then If Target = "Closed" Then Application.EnableEvents = False If Target = "Moved" Then Application.EnableEvents = False nxtRow = Sheets("Closed").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1 Target.EntireRow.Copy _ Destination:=Sheets("Closed").Range("A" & nxtRow) Target.EntireRow.Delete End If End If Application.EnableEvents = TrueEnd SubThe code works for my spreadsheet when I select 'Closed' in Sheet 1, moving it to Sheet 2 perfectly. Any chance anyome could show me an amended code to prompt more than one word (target) to move a row to another sheet? Using the above example, when 'Closed' or 'Moved' is selected from a drop down list, the row moves to another sheet. Appreciate it.

I'm installing some adobe software, which, for some reason, requires chrome to close.

When I close chrome.exe, I get this error:



This only happens to the main chrome.exe process, not the browser, extensions, etc.

I've tried restarting my computer, but it runs at startup and I still can't stop it.

Force browser processes to close
If a tab, window, or extension is not working properly, you can use the task manager in either Chrome or Windows to force it to close. Chrome uses a "multiple processes architecture", which means its processes are designed to work independent of one another. So issues in one tab shouldn’t affect the performance of other tabs or the overall responsiveness of the browser.

In many ways, the task manager is like a hospital monitor: you can use it to track the performance of its internal processes. If the browser seems to be sluggish, open the task manager to find details about each active process and close the one that seems to be using up a lot of resources.

Using Chrome’s task manager

Follow these steps to open the task manager:

Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
Select Tools.
Select Task manager.
In the dialog that appears, select the process you want to close. You’ll find five types of processes listed:
Browser: This process manages all your open tabs and windows and monitors them for suspicious activity. Close this process if you want to force everything in the browser to end.
Renderers: Each of the tabs and apps listed represents a renderer process. Close a tab or app if it isn’t displaying properly.
Plug-ins: If a webpage uses a special process to display rich content on its page, the process, also known as a plug-in, will be listed. Common types of plug-ins include Flash, Quicktime, an... Read more

So I finally got everything ready for a complete format and reinstall. Everything went smooth but now im stuck with no drivers. Figures i found the program that backs up your drivers after i finished it. Anyways, i went to the Dell site(own a dimension 3000) on my laptop and downloaded the driver restore tool onto my thumb drive. I used to program on my desktop and it recognized that the hardware didn't have drivers but then didn't restore anything. Can someone help me out here and maybe point me in the correct direction to find my drivers. Thanks.

I am using outlook 2003 with an exchange server. I use my task list as a todo list. When I mark something as complete I see it has a strike through. The next day I come to my computer and the item that I checked of and had a strike through is gone. Does any body know where this went? I would like to keep these items as a reminder for when I fill out my timesheet.

thanx
