Monitor Problems, Response Problems, Lots of Problems

Q: Monitor Problems, Response Problems, Lots of Problems

Hi This is my first time posting, and I have a lot of things causing problems with my computer, but to start off, here are my specs.

Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-4770s CPU @ 3.10GHz
8 Gb Ram Corsaire Vengence 4x2
64 Bit
AMD Radeon HD 7700 GDDR5 1Gb (two of them w/ crossfire)
2 Tb 7200 Rpm Seagate HDD
z87-g45 Gaming Motherboard
Case: r5 Gaming Full size case
Power Supply: Corsair AX860
Fans: Rosewill Hyper Silence CPU fan, 2 stock front fans, 1 stock in back

So, to start off, I built this computer myself 2 years ago, and it has been running steadily without too many problems along the way, but earlier last year it began to have some much bigger problems.

Issue 1. Monitor Issues
I say this is a monitor issue, but i really doubt it has anything to do with the monitors them selves. What is happening every once in a while (about 3 times a week) the screens of my monitors will cut to black (it doesn't matter what I'm doing) and stay black for a few seconds before revealing the task bar at the bottom of the screen, and then the rest of my desktop slowly reveals itself. I've tried updating my video card drivers, but that hasn't helped.

Issue 2. Keyboard and Mouse Become unresponsive (System isn't frozen however)
Sometimes if I leave my pc idling in the lock screen, the keyboard will stop working, and when I come back, I can't log in. I can tell my computer is not frozen because the slideshow in the lock screen keeps moving and I can move my mouse (but not click with it.)What I found interesting in these occasions was that the Caps Lock key still lit up when I pressed it. I have tried unplugging and plugging back in the mouse and keyboard, but all that does is make the keyboard unusable (I can't press the caps lock) and the mouse doesn't show up anymore. Both Issue 1 and 2 are only fixed with a system reboot.

Issue 3. System Freezes
This problem happens the least out of the 3, and happens out of nowhere (like the other two.) I might be working on something, and when I look back to my computer, it is completely frozen. I can't move the mouse or press any buttons, and the task manager has stopped updating its processes (I keep it open at all times.) This issue is also only fixed with a reboot.

These are some of the issues that are most prominent with my system, I hope someone will be able to help me with this. I can provide more clarity if need be.
Thank You

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hey I've been having major problems with my Laptop.
Every ten or so minutes when my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning it'll re-enable itself causing a lot of alarming pop-up boxes which is slowing my computer. Not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware.
Next theres this process which starts at windows start-up (DivxUpdate.exe), I don't think this is actually a part of divx. I've read somewhere that it is a form of autorun malware, it consumes 99% of my cpu majorly slowing down my computer, I think I may have similar malware on here that are problematic.
Also my firefox frequently say that there's an unresponsive script which temporarily freezes my whole computer and when I finally manage to get to task manager I have to end the process which seems to be using a regular amount of cpu and memory.
I made a topic exactly 1 month ago but nobody answered so I thought I'd make a new one seeing as the problems are progressing and building up.

Thanks for any help I'm provided with.

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm having major virus/spyware,adware,malware removal issues! I

have a lot of different things going on here, and can't make any sense of it. I tried

following other people's solved threads, but they didn't solve my issues, so I guess I need

personalized help. I have Windows security running (well, I usually do when it's working

properly,) and I run Ad-Aware and Spybot regularly, but it appears that they cannot solve

my issue. Anyway, here's a list of things that have been happening to my computer since the

virus happened...

1. I KNOW the virus was contracted in AIM. An IM came in from a friend with only a link. It

didn't look suspicious to me, so I clicked it, and all of a sudden I had IMEd everyone in

my buddy list the link, and received about a million IMs back (didn't have time to read

them before My Computer's virtual memory ran out and crashed AIM on me.

2.When the computer starts up, sometimes a default background appears before the logon

screen with the user accounts appears.

3.After logon, the same thing in general happens every time. Spybot comes up with a bunch

of messages saying that there is a registry change to my homepage or something else

happening. I deny it, and it denies it over and over again to seemingly no avail. A .txt

file appears on the desktop. I have never opened this file, don't know what it is, and

Hi,
 
I sure need help  --- I do not know how to deal with viruses, trojans, spyware, etc.
 
My husband and I were traveling. We had to use public Wifi places to check our email on our laptop. when we got home and checked our email accounts on our laptops, we found some really weird looking email messages. I 'think' my husband opened one that had his name in the Subject line, but we deleted all he other ones that looked strange. We did not open those emails, just deleted them.
 
Now all 3 of our computers are doing really weird things. I have run scan after scan after scan, both downloaded one and online ones. Sometimes they find problems and fix them. sometimes the scans find nothing. Yet our problems just seem to be getting worse and worse. I DESPERATELY need a lot of help.
 
I know it would be very confusing to try to work on all 3 of our computers at once so maybe we can start with my husband's desktop computer.
 
I am currently running Avast on it and it has been running for hours. It is find TONS of things like these ----

etc, etc, etc.

Ok, I have lots of XP problems:

Can't open My computer from the desktop, the computer just locks up whilst attempting to open it, showing me the animated torch, saying it is looking for files.

The computer is running really slow, locking up and crashing programs for no apparent reason.

Cant access the drop down box (shortcut key F4) in windows explorer/applications/anywhere.

Internet explorer refuses to do anything if I type a web address without the http:// into the address box. It worked before, but now it isn't for some reason.

Finally, when I restart windows, it locks up for anything up to 5 minutes when it comes back up. The windows bar with the start button on, when I pass my mouse over it, the pointer turns to an hourglass and I am unable to do anything unti it sorts itself out.

I have tried running several anti virus programs, including AVG, Mcafee and Norton. Only AVG came up with a virus, 'Dialler'. I cleared this and it didn't make any difference. I alos tried system restore from several points, but each time it told me that it was unable to restore.

If ANYONE can give me any help at all, I would be extremely grateful.

Yours,

Wayne Donnelly.

Hi, about 2 days ago I turned on my pc and many weird things started happening...
first it took a lot of time for the explorer.exe to load, so the desktop or taskbar didn't appear until after maybe 10-15 minutes. Then, the taskbar looked really weird, it seemed like it had been cut horizontally, so you couldn't get to see the whole lower part of the taskbar (and it wasn't the screen size config... since I tried changing that and it didn't work).

I am running a desktop HP Pavilion 500-123ea, 8 GB memory running Windows 10 (originally Windows 8). The computer frequently freezes/crashes.

The sfc/scannow fails to complete.

I have been getting conflicting results from DISM. When I run 'CheckHealth' it says 'The component source is repairable.'

When I run 'Restorehealth' in DISM it says there is an error 0x800f081f and that 'The source files could not be found'. I am referred to the link 'go microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkId=243077' which doesn't seem to go anywhere.

I realise I've posted before, and appreciate all received advice, but has anyone encountered this sort of problem before?

I have a friend who has a new Gateway with XP who complains that recently everything has been sluggish, there have been slowdowns and freezes, etc. I know win98 but not XP. Are there diagnostics and such that he can run on XP to check for anything that might be causing his problems? Things like SFC, scandisk, etc? Are there basic things he can be checking before calling Gateway? I will have him defrag just in case that might be a factor.

I have had repeated problems with my computer freezing/crashing. It?s a HP Pavilion 500-123ea, 8GB memory. sfc/scannow does not complete. Dism ?CheckHealth? is OK.

I have referred to the tenforums tutorial 7808 on Dism repair (last title I had was ?Repair Windows Update?). This has instructions to download a ISO file.

I have been struggling with this. On first attempt, the word I got was ?can not open file as archive?, ie that?s the install.wim file.

Second attempt I got ?source files could not be found?.

Thirdly, I tried another download attempt and after 20 minutes nothing had happened.

The download seemed to want to default to the C drive, although I had preferably been trying to get it to a removable F drive USB disk. No particular success either way.

I have tried to be careful with the install:wim syntax.

I suppose the diagnosis would seem to be that I have somehow ended up with some corrupted files.

Is this DISM RestoreHealth tool usable? Am I likely to get anywhere with it? Anyway, as before I much appreciate previous advice on this forum and I just don?t know if there?s anything else I can try.

A:Problems with Response from DISM

Hello jdcallison,
Actually RestoreHealth from DISM is somewhat complex.You cannot repair a 10586 build with 10240 ISO, which I hope isn't a case here.
The best option in your case would be to do a repair upgrade, which keeps everything and reinstall windows.

Okay, so I've been getting this problem while connecting to my college dorm's network. Whenever I plug in an ethernet without modifying some settings, my computer doesn't even respond to the cable being plugged in. Going into my LAN adapter settings, I tested if a cable was even being recognized, and it was not.

The first thing I did was install a new driver for my LAN adapter, which at first did nothing. Then I started fiddling around with something called Link Speed and Duplex Settings, because it's description said matching these settings to the network's can sometimes invoke a response. Originally set at 'auto configuration', I changed these settings to 100 mbps and got a response, but didn't connect to the network. All sorts of problems come up like "Didn't recognize a DHCP server, Windows obtained automatic IP address settings". It will try to connect to the network, but ultimately takes 2 minutes or so to come up with these errors.

So next I tried the 10 mbps setting, and for some reason, this makes everything work completely fine without issues. Except I can now only get extremely slow internet speeds in exchange for internet actually working. I also tried buying a $15 NIC card to go into my unused PCI slot, but my computer won't even accept the new NIC. Booting up my computer will make it go through this continuous power restart cycles without actually displaying anything on screen.

ok well first my explorer.exe stopped working, im not quite sure when... it seems like somethings closing it a few moments after opening it. the taskbar appears for a split second if i try to run it in taskmgr and then dissapears... system restore didnt help at all. i also read a guide on here about using regedit to fix it but the specified files didnt exist. but well, i kinda just dealt with this problem for a while, ran everything through task manager and it got the job done. but now ive encountered a problem... theres absolutely no space left on my HD and i cant empty the recycling bin. i read a few things about how you can do it in DOS but none of them worked. so i guess what im asking is a fix to either problem and id assume itd be easy to work from there. oh and a CD blew up in my disc drive a few years ago so i cant even reformat or do anything else that requires that...

my computer is having lots of issues. the main problem is that explorer closes down by itself, says "internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" Sometimes Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger comes up afterwards with the same message, sometimes it doesn't.
The other main problem is the blue screen that comes up at least 5-10 times a day with a lot of writing on it but in bold letters it says MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION I could wrte down the whole screen if you need me to.At that point I can't do anything but turn it off and back on. It happens sometimes when I'm just on the internet-any sites but i have noticed it more on youtube and yahoo music, while music is playing, or on any sites where you can leave "comments" about people's pictures orblogs, or news stories. It also goes to the blue screen when I try to run spybot or AVG. Any advice you can give me I would appreciate very much I saved all my pictures onto photobucket, cause I just have this feeling soon I won't even be able to turn on the computer

Whew. Lots of problems to list.
1. FireFox
After a few months of using it, I found that half the time pages don't fully load, but sometiems if you reload in a new tab, then it will succeed. Should I uninstall, then reinstall with the latest version? Avant browser and Internet Explorer work though.
Could it be because of the resources that FireFox uses? I have already tried clearing my cache etc.

2. System Idle Proccess
It fluxuates every second. It goes from 0% to 93%. Very strange, and it is not accounted for in the total CPU Usage.

3. Extremely High CPU Usage
I am getting extremely high CPU usage. Anywhere from 70-100, while my usual is around 0%.

4. I am using SideBar, it displays usage
It displays that my disk usage goes from 0-100, a proccess as simple as copying a 1 gig worth of files takes 10 minutes. Usually my disk is at most 10%.

5. Memory Usage very high
It's around 63% (all the time), not even including when I run a program (can shoot up to 100% often).

6. Just a quick question, what is Swap Memory?

7. Freezes and Crashes
I am getting many freezes lately, and my Explorer.exe (important part of windows), has crashed about 15 times within the past week. A very noticable problem.

8. I have scanned...
I have used Kaspersky AV, Avast AV, Zone Alarm AV, Zone Alarm Firewall, NAV, NIS, AdAware, Spybot, BPS Anti-Spyware and more. All viruses and spyware deleted, but problems persist.

9. Network crashes randomly

A:Lots of problems.

I suggest going to the security forum and reading all sticky posts and general information. Post a HJT log because of the symptoms you describe it seems all the AV programs have missed something - which is very possible because they are all far from being perfect.

I wouldnt overclock to take care of this problem.

Once your malware problems are solved i would start a new thread in the hardware forum - thats where you'll get the best advice considering OCing.

I have hedgebuilders filter on my husbands computer. Last night we installed Norton 360 2.0. There were no problems until this morning the Norton said it could not update because of the proxy (hedgebuilders). I talked to hedgebuilders and they walked me through uninstalling and reinstalling their filter. No problems there but Norton would still not update. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled Norton. Now I have application errors popping up every where and the NAWDI bus enumerator problem. Norton still will not update it gives me the same error message. Norton isn't finding any virus'.

The last time you asked for help you did not respond to the assistance offered so I hope you will this time.

Please move HijackThis out of the Temporary files and into a separate folder of its own in program files, so that it can function properly and create back-ups which can be restored, if necessary.

It is likely that you have a variant of the Vundo trojan that hides itself from HijackThis.exe so if we rename HijackThis, the entries should become visible.

Go to the C:\Program Files\HijackThis folder. Right click on the HijackThis.exe file and select "Rename". Rename it puppy.exe. Make sure it has the .exe extension or it will not work.

Then run HijackThis again and post a new log please.

First of all, my computer operation is Windows XP Home Edition.

This started last Friday, when I restarted the computer, and my brother logged in. They were lots of popups, and programs installed by itself. We uninstalled the programs, and deleted the adware with, a program called Ad Aware. Then, I use this Anti Virus program (not norton anti virus) to scan for viruses. They were viruses, but the dumb program couldn't delete it. I thought, I guess the computer is okay now....and my brother just went on the computer,without any problems. But then the next day, I logged in, the internet wasn't working. Then I checked the other computer,to see if the internet was working, and it was (we have two computers sharing a modem) So, I thought there must be a virus blocking the internet connection. But the dumb anti virus program we had, couldn't delete it. So, I got Norton Anti Virus 2004 from a friend, so on the other computer (With the internet working) I tried to copy norton anti virus to a blank cd. So,that didn't work. My friend did it for us on her computer. So we installed it, and restarted the computer. But when I tried to login, I couldn't because, about 50+ more viruses were on my computer! And they were all trying to load when I logged in. Like how my msn messenger always pops up and signs in when I log in..so when all 50+ viruses are trying to load, I can't do anything...my friend told me to put the norton anti virus internet security cd in an...

Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Thanks!

A:Lots of problems here!

Sure you can......whenever you're ready.

Here's the current instruction:

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.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
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.

First of all, my computer operation is Windows XP Home Edition.

This started last Friday, when I restarted the computer, and my brother logged in. They were lots of popups, and programs installed by itself. We uninstalled the programs, and deleted the adware with, a program called Ad Aware. Then, I use this Anti Virus program (not norton anti virus) to scan for viruses. They were viruses, but the dumb program couldn't delete it. I thought, I guess the computer is okay now....and my brother just went on the computer,without any problems. But then the next day, I logged in, the internet wasn't working. Then I checked the other computer,to see if the internet was working, and it was (we have two computers sharing a modem) So, I thought there must be a virus blocking the internet connection. But the dumb anti virus program we had, couldn't delete it. So, I got Norton Anti Virus 2004 from a friend, so on the other computer (With the internet working) I tried to copy norton anti virus to a blank cd. So,that didn't work. My friend did it for us on her computer. So we installed it, and restarted the computer. But when I tried to login, I couldn't because, about 50+ more viruses were on my computer! And they were all trying to load when I logged in. Like how my msn messenger always pops up and signs in when I log in..so when all 50+ viruses are trying to load, I can't do anything...my friend told me to put the norton anti virus internet security cd in an...

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also.

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point.

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download Index.dat Suite to clean out all the temp folders. Do not run it yet.

You have the Peper infection. Download PeperUninstall. Make sure you are connected online to run this program. Run it once and reboot. Then run it again for the second time. Download PeperFix and save it to your Desktop. Run it and click Find and Fix (reboot if prompted).

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up).

And a few other things.. this website is "blocked" and it's hard to download certain things like virus removal tools, etc. I struggled getting HJT onto my computer, I had to stop a few system processes that were unfamiliar to me and rename the installer.

Two nights ago I had realized that I lost all sound and noises that Win7 usually makes. This didn't bother me too much, as I thought I could fix it by adjusting the mixer levels. I was completely wrong, I started to get worried and google'd answers. One of the responses was to hit the "Windows Update" button. everytime I hit this button I get "page failed to load" so no matter what I do I cannot update windows. I also cannot visit and page that has flash embedded. shockwave flash corrupt or something. please help me.

Begin by trying System Restore.
System Restore

If that does not resolve these issues...
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If you continue to have problems, the next thing I would recommend is scanning for malware.

Hi Brookbend,

I think there is some sort of Virus in your computer. Did you tried running the antivirus software .. If yes what is the software you are using?

Did you tried checking the computer in Safe mode ?

Please let me know what changes you have done before this issue started.

Hi there. I'm trying to get my dad's laptop back to "normal" working condition. It's less than a year old - Dell studio 1737 running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2. Processor reads: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53 GHz with 4GB Ram and 64-bit OS.

Dad is a "clicker" - meaning he clicks on anything and everything. I'm trying to break him of that, but so far...well...he's having a lot of issues. I have no idea what he's downloaded. My brother *thinks* he fixed it by downloading other junk that didn't work, and now it's worse than before. It's running quite slow, IE closes on itself nearly every time you open it, random pop-ups when you navigate away from the homepage, etc. We use Dell Remote Access when he's away from home in case we run into something I can't talk him through - but we've had a ton of trouble with it and now we can't uninstall it - it gets hung up. I've tried to repair it with no luck, either. Last night I ran AdAware...and now I'm here. You've been so helpful in the past. Any ideas?!

There is also a dell backup thing I don't know what is for. It asks every day if he wants to backup - sometimes he says yes, sometimes no. Is it necessary?? Seems like a lot of wasted space. I have a large iomega external drive I back up his machine on every 3 months...

Oh - I also moved 90GB of movies he shot for his business last night to free up some space - but he has a... Read more

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure my computer is filled with spyware. Ads keep popping up saying I have critical errors that were found and to click on the link to clean it up. This is obviously a popup. What can I download to get rid of all of this. I have a registry cleaner on my computer and I did a scan. But to fix the errors I need to pay. So is there any free programs? I can post a hijack this log. I also know of spytbot, and ad-aware. Is there anything else I can do?

Fist thing is to clean up disk on your computer.Try doing an online scan at bitdefender online virus scanner...it will ask you to install a few things while doing it however its ok to so.http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.htmlI also use spybot and adaware however i also have used superantispyware and Asquared...I suggest trying them.superantipywarehttp://www.superantispyware.com/Asquared free...they may ask for email on trial versions...just use a yahoo email or gmail or something.http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/Also check out the rest of there products as they usually have a fully funtional 30 day trial period.http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/Hope this helps a bit.

#2. Weird IEXPLORE.EXE in task manager processes( It appears when I start the computer, and won't let me "end task" it).

#3.Direct X not working: Only reason I switched to this computer is because Direct X did not work on the other one... (I downloaded from the official website, Reinstalled it, ect)

#4.Weird "windows messenger" popup.

#5.TONS of popups (Every page I visit, popup, even on google.com and other websites that are pop-up free).
That is it, Thanks if you could help on any of those problems ( The most needed fix is the Direct X, but any others would be appreciated).

Before we get started, I'd just like to say that my computer is really messed up. Just recently i think my router messed up, because the internet is now only accessible on this computer, and not on the other one connected with it. (Yes, I've tried many many ways to fix that.) To add on to that, the internet on this computer is considerably slowed. Also, I am pretty sure that i have a browser hijacker. I can't click a link on google without getting redirected to '101links.com' or something like that.

Other problems include applications disconnecting themselves (exiting without my permission?), greyed out display options, and the inability to access my windows firewall. (The application tells me that I do not have the permission, or that 'due to an unexplainable problem' I can't access it.)

After many virus scans, nothing has been found, besides the everyday deletions and such. There is nothing much else I can think of doing, so I have attached extra.txt. Hopefully you can help.
