# Start button opens and closes immediately

Q: Start button opens and closes immediately

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

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

What is the app that you are trying to run? Is there not an update that will work with IE8, or at least a bug fix?

When was the last time this program was working properly?

Hi All,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks!

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

A:XP SP3 - IE7 opens and closes immediately

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

sfc /scannow

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

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

A:IE opens then immediately closes

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

IE 11 opens and then closes immediately. The only way to open IE 11 is to right click on IE shortcut, select properties, then set to open minimized. Then click IE 11 on toolbar, and it opens. Setting IE 11 to Normal or Maximized causes IE 11 to open then immediately close. I have removed then re-installed IE 11, ran malewarebytes and ccleaner but IE 11 still has the same problem. I turned off GP rendering. I am out of ideas, does anyone have any other methods to try?

A:ie 11 opens then closes immediately

Run CCleaner-Slim or CCleaner-Portable & remove everything it finds, then try IE11 again. If that doesn't do it, go to Internet Options > Advanced tab, then click the reset button located near the bottom.https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/b...

All of a sudden yesterday Outlook closed and now when I try to re-open it, it immediately closes. I get the splash screen and I see my inbox for about a second but as soon as it tries to send/receive, it closes.

I've uninstalled MS Office and reinstalled, tried using a restore point, tried to open in safe mode and run spybot. After all of this, still nothing.

Anyone have any advice or tips on what I can do next to get Outlook back up and running?

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

Has anybody come across this before?

Thanks.

A:Chrome opens then immediately closes

Hello,

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

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

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

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

Well...the only question I have...is do you have a boxmaker (Dell, HP, etc.) system?

If so, you should have read their documentation/suggestions before ever installing SP3.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I click on the OneDrive icon on the Windows 8.1 Start screen and the app opens, then immediately closes. All other apps work OK.
I have tried the troubleshooters, reset the Store cache and uninstalled and reinstalled Onedrive but the problem continues.
Another issue that is probably related is, although the Onedrive app is installed on the Start screen, it does not show on "My Apps" at "My Account" at the Windows Store.
Like I said above, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the OneDrive app several times but the situation remains.

Hi,

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

I am running Windows 7 64-bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hi All

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

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

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

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

Hello. I have noticed that an application/window opens and then closes immediately on my computer about once every 15 minutes. You can see for a split second the new bar in the start bar for the window but then it just disappears. This is especially annoying when playing video games, because it minimizes the games for the new window, and it just disappears anyway.

Is there any way I can see a list of opened applications or windows and in what orders and what times? Thanks

Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
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

In my Access database (Office 2003, Windows XP) each record is associated with a file somewhere on disk. Some of these files are MS Word files and some are PDF files.

In the DB, the user has the option to click on a button to view the document.

When the user clicks on "View Document, I use the
Application.FollowHyperlink method to open the document file.

When I run the software on this computer, the Word document open correctly but when I try to FollowHyperlink to a PDF file, the document opens momentarily, then closes almost immediately. The document is in view for less than a second.

There is nothing wrong with the PDF document itself. When opened in the normal way on this computer, Acrobat opens it properly with no warnings or dialogues.

I am unsure whether the problem has anything to do with Acrobat versus Reader but it is the single difference that I can identify immediately. I will soon try this on other machines that also have Acrobat installed to see if the problem is the same on those machines.

Any ideas?

I run Outlook 2002 (Office XP Professional). The program now opens, says that it is checking "archive folders" because it was not closed properly file being checked for problems. Looks like it may start to send/receive and then closes immediately. It has been prompting me every time I open it with this "archive folder" checking for a while, but the program has always run. This started first thing Friday after the send/receive. The archive.pst file is: 1,064,704KB and the Outlook.pst file is: 637,072KB. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this. I'd like to keep my contacts and files if possible. Thanks!

I was able to install MBAM by changing the name and file extension to test.bat - the program would not run. I then was able to get the program to run by changing mbam.exe to test.bat. MBAM found the following: Trojan.DNSChanger, Trojan.FakeAlert, Trojan.Agent

MBAM removed them, MBAM returns clean results. Internet explorer still opens and closes immediately. All my software that requires a license opens and now claims it could not contact the license server or license expired.

I know there were some answers on here for the problem, but the recommendations seemed to change for each person so I thought I'd post my own question. As per another post I ran screen317's Security Check my results were as follows:

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

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

A:Word closes immediately

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

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

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

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

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

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

When I opened it up and compared to my laptop running the same version of the OS (Win XP Pro sp3) I noticed it was missing an entry .. the information under [operating systems] (second entry) was b... Read more

In our client we are facing the below issue in only 4 machines.

When we open Internet Explorer 11 in the machines, it freezes for some time and then closes automatically. No error is getting recorded in the even viewer. Tries to launch the IE by disabling the add ons and by enabling the use software rendering instead of
GPU rendering. Disabled the script also but no use. When i tried to uninstall IE 11 and use the old version of IE it works fine.
Kindly suggest

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

A:MsConfig Closes Immediately After Execution

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WXKFCGREMB.EXE

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

TFTP1504

4 -- Run HijackThis and check the following boxes and click "fix checked":

I've been through the forums and i know that other people have had similar problems, and I've read how they have had their problems fixed. I've tried many different things to get my problem fixed, but nothing seems to ever work.

I suspect that i have multiple problems that may or may not be related to each other, but either way I cannot do certain things to fix anything.

The problems that I have noticed are:
1. Home page for internet explorer changes to http://www.nuevaq.fm/ even when I change it back to what I want.
2.a)HijackThis opens, then lasts about 1-4 seconds, then automatically closes
b) Whenever I type Hijack This in internet explorer, whether on google, or any site, Internet Explorer closes within seconds (making it almost impossible to search for help regarding Hijack This)
3. Regedit/msconfig open for a split second then close again (task manager and antivirus sites do still work)

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

FYI: I wanted to post the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forums but whenever i visit the subforum my browser automatically closes...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am on Windows 7.

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

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

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

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

Hi,

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

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

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

Hi puertorico, welcome to BC!A little clarification, when you say wont let me press[del] to enter start up mode do you mean that you can't enter the system BIOS utility (the thing that comes up before Windows) or that you can't get to the boot menu (where things like "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration" are shown) by pressing F8 before Windows loads?If you have your Windows XP installation CD, then that's all we'll really need to fix this.

When I launch the People app, the app opens for a brief moment and then immediately closes.

If I search for a name that I know is in my People list, from the charms menu, then the People app will open with information about that person. But if I touch "Home", the app acts as before - briefly displays the People app home screen, then closes.

it out, restarted and it didn't make a difference. One thing (before I re-installed IE) I did was to put "c:\windows\ie7\intcpl.cpl" into
"c:\windows\system32\intcpl.cpl" and that got my Internet Options back (their gone again now), but it didn't fix the closing out issue.

Do the cntrl, alt, delete command to open the task manager then go to aplications and see if its still runing. If it's not there, then check the processes tab to see if its runing. If its not runing at all then maybe you should uninstall and reinstall then after do the patch. If it happens again then its gonna be a registry that some virus or malicious code has added or modified. Im not an expert but tricks like that are always pulled by means of altering the registry.

PS...MAKE SURE TO RESTART AFTER UNINSTALLING AND BETWEENING INSTALLING THE PROGRAM AGAIN AND PATCH.

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

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

behind it is the Mozilla Crash Reporter:

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

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

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

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

Hello,

since today i've been experiencing quite unusual behaviour of windows explorer. After logon the taskbar shows up for a blink of eye, and then closes. Explorer.exe cannot be started from task manager as well (the same behaviour). Iexplore.exe neither.

I've seen some similar problems here, usually caused by malware, but I couldn't find anything suspicious on my computer. This is HJThis log:

I have searched the forum and have not found anyway to fix my problem. I have Vista Ultimate on x32 and during the installation, i acquired too many "windows.old" folders (windows.old, windows.old.000, windows.old.001....) and they all take up gigabytes of space! I learned that Disk Cleanup can fix this but everytime I clicked the link it opens for less than a second and then closes. I tried shortcuts and the actual file and by using Run. I have also restored some .reg files that were actually missing. Nothing has worked! help!

Hello Julio, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You will need to do a clean install with that many window.old folders. It sounds like your current install is corrupted.

Hi everyone, New to the forum so thanks for the help ahead of time. Upon opening internet explorer it immediately closes and displays nothing. Also Internet options in control panel will not open at all. The windows firewall also tells me "For your security, some settings are controlled by group policy." This computer is not on a network and is a home computer. I was able to work around it by doing some registry work in which I removed the value on the firewall key. So that enabled me to turn the firewall back on. The service for windows firewall is now started with no errors and is set to automatic.

The Internet explorer problem is more important to me at the moment. I know the internet connection is active because firefox works perfectly. I scanned the computer with AVG and it found so many viruses and trojans it was rediculous. I also scanned the computer with webroot spysweeper and it found nothing but when I open IE it stops all sorts of things like drivecleaner for example.

Hi guys,

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

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

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

Hi there,

msconfig closes immediately when run, and I've read that this usually means a virus. I've run Adaware, Spybot search and destroy, both of which found nothing. AVG found and removed two Trojan startpages, but the computer is running a little slow, and, as I've said, msconfig closes immediately.

Good afternoon -

Whenever I try to open Microsoft Security Essentials the GUI briefly appears but then immediately closes, and the system tray icon disappears. If I try to reopen it the same thing happens. If I right click and choose Run As Administrator it opens and stays open. I am running MalwareBytes but have no other AV software running or installed (nor has there ever been). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling MSE with the same results. I've done full scans with MBAM and MSE and no issues were found.

This is a relatively new PC, only been assembled and running about a week. Not sure what is going on here.

A:Microsoft Security Essentials immediately closes after I open it

Installed Avast, it runs fine. Also no threats detected. I'm sure it's just some goofy setting or something causing MSE to crash. But if Avast works I'll just use that from now on in place of MSE.

Hey
I've tried everything I know how to do (not very much). I've lost the recovery disc so I can't reformat. I have a Gateway tablet pc/laptop thing. I think i've picked up some nasty malware/virus/browser hijacker. When I open IE it would close immediately. Firefox is very unresponsive and my browsers appears to be hijacked. I get the warning that pops up on the task bar over and over saying that it's detected some spyware or malware and I need to click to download the antivirus. I'm in safemode now, I can't even use either browser in normal mode, I still can't use IE in safemode. If I have to log back in on normal mode to save a hijack this log then switch back to safe mode so I can post then i'll do that. I also noted that I couldn't even run the "hijack this" program, it wasn't until I renamed the .exe to something completely unrelated that it would even allow me to open it up.
Idk if my hijack log will be valuable in safemode but here it is, i've already tried looking at other people's threads with similar problems and troubleshooting myself unsuccessfully. I will appreciate anyone's help or helpful advice.

Had to reinstall Win7 and reinstall backup files. Now the program "TreePad" (freeform DB) opens and loads data but immediately minimizes to the task bar. Cannot get it on desktop to see the contents. I have tried many things to get it to open on the desktop but no luck. I even reinstalled the video driver just in case. No help there.
Not having this problem with any other program... Have contacted the vendor but no response as yet. Downloaded a new copy of the program but it acts the same way.
Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.
