Computer won't update, internet out of wack

Q: Computer won't update, internet out of wack

Hi Everyone,I'm new to this site and I was hoping that I could get some help with my computer. My apologies ahead of time but I'm not the most computer literate person so if my topic title/introduction have been done wrong please let me know. Here's some background on the situation: my Windows Update will download the update but fail to install (Update KB982158). The second problem that I seem to be having with my internet--When looking at the sending/receiving activity monitor the sending activity is extremely high and is increasing at an abnormally fast rate. My more computer literate friend said that it seems as if something is using my computer to attack another.I've run both the DDS tool as well as the GMER tool, however when running the latter my computer came up with the blue screen, dumped all of my memory and I wasn't able to generate a log. After posting I will try and run it again and update this post accordingly. Here's my DDS log and attach file.Thank You!.DDS (Ver_11-03-05.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Jordan at 20:04:15.75 on Sun 03/13/2011Internet Explorer: 7.0.6002.18005 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_24Microsoft?

About 2 weeks ago, my computer suddenly wouldn't connect to to STEAM (The Computer Game Software from Valve)

So I tried getting it to work when suddenly other programs on my computer stopped connecting to my computer as well, first it was firefox then it was google chrome, and I.E. worked for a while but then stopped the only thing I can connect to is AIM

also I can only access the internet while in safe mode.


It says I'm connected to my wireless network on the bottom right, but get nothing in the browsers

Also while trying the ipconfig /renew

this message would show

"No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected."

I'm not sure what It means, I've never encountered this message before

I'm not sure where to begin anymore, I'd appreciate any help

I'm running Vista Service Pack 2

A:Internet connection is wack

Check for updated NIC drivers for NIC - wifi & ethernet

Okayy Ive been everywhere from avast help to hp basically everyone. Im hoping someone here can help me fix this problem. okay so about a week ago spyware was on my computer antivirus 2010 so i used malware bytes and it said it got it off. but my computer still resumed to reboot so I said wth and reformatted my computer using the hp disks they had sent me. So I did the first few times I wasnt able to find my network interface card and finally I called hp and they helped me install it correctly. Now my computer is still rebooting every hour or so. I used malwarebytes and it found nothing. I also used avast and hijackthis. Please someone help me out. I will greatly appreciate it. I will include my hijackthis report below. I hope to hear from someone soon.Btw since my reformat i have not downloaded any spyware that im aware of. sooo i dont know why it keeps doing this.I use windows xp pro service pac 2Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 2:35:20 PM, on 3/23/2010Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.5730.0013)Boot mode: Normal{Mod Edit:removed HJY log improperly placed~~~boopme}

A:I need HELP. my computer is completely out of wack -hoping someone can help me.

Download BlueScreenView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.The fact that your system reboots routinely...would seem to not indicate a malware situation, IMO. But we will examine that possibility later, depending on what we find out in your next post. For the time being, I will leave your HJT data intact, rather than removing such. HJT logs are handled in one of our malware forums...rather than move you to one of those, a quick exploration of possibly system issues seems expedient in your case.Louis

My explorer.exe does not want to cooperate with me. It "does" a combination of the feared "restarting" and "just shutting off and not coming back on."

R really don't know what to do as I have tried at least 20 or 30 of the things listed if you google "fix explorer.exe." Just tell me what you need to know.

By the way, give me links to anything you want me to download or something.

hey guys,

so here's the deal, I was going to play some League Of Legends with my brother and forgot I hadn't installed ventrillo yet so I did that and then I hooked up my headphones and started talking to him. however he couldn't hear me so I went to control panel and the ventrillo settings and started changing some settings around until he could hear me...we never found a solution and now my sound on my computer is messed up and I can't hear anything. I was just wondering if there was any way I could set the settings back to default or something? because I really don't understand this whole audio thing
any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Hi. This is gonna sound odd but every time I move my mouse real fast it goes out of control. If I don't move the mouse the cursor stays but with one little twitch and it is half-way across the screen again. This also tends to happen in Linux but Win2k is the worst. If I don't move it for about 3 seconds it goes back to normal until I move it fast again. And I am not even moving it that fast!!! Please help. Thank you.

I recently changed hardware on my pc. I did not uninstall or change anything about my hard drive, but when using it in the new pc, it kept telling me to activate windows. This was strange, never happened to me before so why now. So i go through so much
trouble trying to fix it and nothing worked. Even in settings under activation blah blah, it still wouldn't let me activate because "the servers were down". ok. So i call Microsoft support, and he keeps trying to get me to repurchase windows 10.
No. Bad customer service  rep. He did not help at all just made me do everything i already did and  when it said the servers were down, he told me its because i don't have a legit license. I downloaded windows 10 when it was free in 2016 or whenever.
So i never got a product key. So I used to windows 10 installer tool and it seemed to work, the watermark was gone. but later that day when i came home it was back. Then i tried the activation again and it worked. This was incredibly frustrating and annoying.
so i wanted to leave negative feedback to windows/microsoft. But i dont have the feedback hub, so i go to windows store and try to search bnut the search function doesnt work. I dont know why i thought any other windows app would be easy to use after everything
i just experienced. I have no question. This isnt about windows 8. This is the only place i found to try to tell microsoft anything. so tedious and annoying. yuck.

Hi guys! For a while now, the volume on certain websites has been messed up for me and I've tried everything and have come to a conclusion that maybe something's wrong, so I did a virus scan and then all of a sudden this message from McAffee started popping up:

Hello friends, I am currently trying to troubleshoot my laptop and I am stumped. It is running on Windows Vista SP1, with only moderate usage. I do not have the boot cd to this laptop currently. Right now, I cannot access any internet site on any browser, even though I have an internet connection. I cannot update MBAM either (Error 732: Error updating the database or product. Check Internet connectivity). Also, while scanning with gmer, the program either crashes (Not Responding) or causes my computer to abruptly shut down.

So far, I have used the AVG Rescue CD to run a scan on my computer from boot. I did find two viruses which I removed. Before the removal of these viruses, anytime I tried to open a program, I would get an error stating something along the lines of "file corrupted, would you like to run a scan?"--this would occur with any program, even the task manager. However, even after this problem was resolved, I am still unable to access the internet or update my MBAM.

Hi -

I'd like to see a scan log from GMER. Let's try it this way

try running the scan in Safe Mode.

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Login on your usual account. Make sure to close any open browsers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you still have troubles, run the scan with ONLY the Sections and C drive boxes ticked.

I have run Registry Mechanic, Ad-Aware, Updated Norton and did a complete virus scan, all with no problems. I am really frustrated now. Can someone tell me what might be causing this? I was thinking possibly a software conflict, but that's just an uneducated guess and was hoping someone a little more knowledgeable could shed some light on the problem for me!

Aggrieved users who'd thought far enough ahead to install Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or any of the other alternatives took to Norton's official forum to vent their spleens.

I try to reboot via the Last Known good start and it doesn't work. I've been trying to find info on this but nothing seems to work. I HAVE TO GET THIS LOUSY UPDATE OFF MY COMPUTER and restore it to before it updated! How do I do this?

Is that the only time you lose connection or does it happen at other times also?

Hello,I really need some help! My computer had a virus that made the fake Windows XP antivirus popup appear where they want you to download the bogus antispyware program, and the desktop background changed to blue with a message that read " WARNING! Spyware detected on your computer. Please install an antispyware...." Blah, Blah Blah! And it would act like it was restarting and go to a blue screen, but if I pressed F8 it would go back. So I followed some steps I had read on here from other people, and that part of it is gone. I am now able to change my desktop background. Now the problem is that every time I try to go on to the internet, Google or whatever other search engine I use will come up, but then when you try to go to another site, it just says " Loading, internet browser redirecting." And I get redirected to another site, usally ADT (weird) or another antispyware site which I believe is just part of the virus. Also, the computer will freeze up completely to where I can't do ANYTHING. Even CTRL+ALT+Delete doesn't work. So we end up just unplugging it (I know that is probably REALLY bad!) I downloaded spybot S&D from my other computer and put it on the bad one, and it did find a couple things and I deleted them, but it didn't help. So I got hijackthis from my other computer also and dowloaded it to the messed up one and obtained my log. I had to do this in safe mode and allow networking to even get my computer to keep running, so... Read more

Hello BC!
 
I use a Samsung np370r4e. It is a few years old and is a hand me down from an older relative. When I first received it, it was very slow so I took it to a local computer shop to add in 2GB of RAM (which added up to 4GB) and to clean it up. Apart from sometimes getting hot after a few hours of usage, it has ran very well over the last couple of months.
 
Two days ago, I used the native Samsung SW Update to run a few updates. I let it run overnight. The next morning, I noticed that my laptop was extremely slow. The boot up and shut down times were (as they usually are) very quick but using Chrome or anything else on the laptop would cause it to frequently lag or hang for about roughly 10 seconds. Chrome (being that which I use the most often) would often freeze or crash.
 
I checked the RAM and 4GB was detected. After suspecting that the update may have something to do with it, I tried using system restore. The first time I did it, my laptop battery died halfway and I had to do it again. The second attempt was successful.
 
However, even as I type this, the same symptoms are occurring and they are getting exponentially worse. The hangs and freezes are getting more recurrent. Also, my computer blacked out for about 10 seconds before coming back. Even writing this is a challenge, as my computer keeps hanging.
 
A gut feeling is telling me to back up my hard drive, just in case, and that's what I'm going to do after I post this.

A:Updated computer using Samsung SW Update and computer became unbelievably slow

Hi there.
 
It seems clear that the update did not have a positive effect on the laptop and it is causing the instability.
 
Have you tried to revert those updates, or rather, are you able to do so, since it is difficult for you to work with the laptop?

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer! I am Elle and I will be helping you out with your problem. Firstly, you should know that we are working with specific tools which are used to identify the possible threats present on your system so I will analyze the results they produce. As a start we need to have some more up-to-date logs than the ones you have already provided. The current state of the files on your system might have changed so we need to get a clear look on that aspect. DO NOT bring any changes to the system except the ones I tell you to as that may produce more damage than helping us. If you will encounter a delay of over 2 days from me, please don't hesitate and private message me (link in the signature). Do not forget to check your topic periodically and subscribe to it so that you can receive notifications regarding my replies.Please generate another DDS log (download it from here if you haven't already) and post it in your next reply along with other changes that may have occured since you last posted.Also download and run GMER from this link: GMER download link.Thank you very much for your patience.

My kids' computer is a compaq presario running windows vista home premium. It is connected to a linksys wireless router which, in turn is connected to a telephony modem (internet/phone etc...). Also running off the router & modem is our machine (XP), a laptop (XP) and a HP wireless printer.

The Compaq (the kids machine) will not connect to the internet via Internet explorer. It had done before, but I cannot get it to do so again. This machine sees all of the other members of the network and is receiving a strong signal, but nevertheless, IE will not connect. The LAN status is connected at 100 Mbps.

I was on the phone with Comcast for 2 hours and we did the whole reset modem/router thing a few times, as well as checked all settings.

We also reset IE & I checked the posts here and followed all suggestions but cannot get their machine online.

I've looked through the forum and followed much, including PING command and trying to reset the winsock (requires "elevation?"). Still no luck

Hi,

Im usually pretty good and keeping my computer protected and clean. If I ever get a virus I can usually fix it myself by researching and such.

This time however I'm not so lucky, I cant seem to figure it out at all.

I recently got a new wireless card for my computer because I thought my old one was really broken, the hard covers had come off so the insides were all sticking out. My internet had been running slowly, I just figured it was the source of the problem.

Today however, Firefox crashed, and I couldn't get it to come back up at all, it would just keep crashing. Same with Internet Explorer, it would load a page and then crash, telling me that "Internet Explorer has encountered an error and needs to shut down."

Google has been redirecting to a sub-site instead of Google itself, like I was searching through an outside website.

I finally thought to try safari, I got the internet working but every Google link I clicked would redirect to something completely irrelevant.

Throughout my troubles I have not been able to load MalwareBytes or AVG. They both pop up with error messages before they even load. I originally was trying to re-download AVG because I figured whatever virus this is deleted essential files from the program, but my installation failed stating the registry key was invalid.

I believe I got into this mess having made the mistake of downloading an infected torrent file. I usually scan them but as I said, my virus programs have... Read more

I fear that an old PC I recently purchased from a garage sale may have had a virus that spread throughout my network.

First, a little bit of background about this computer. Around December of last year, it was infected by a virus that seemed to be neutralized after some assistance. But within a week, the computer wouldn't even start up anymore, as it would freeze up before even displaying the desktop icons. To my dismay, I found out that the Vista install CD had ran away to some remote area of the downstairs garage, so I installed a copy of Windows Server 2008 I had on hand (I got it for free). Anyways, long story short, it turned out there wasn't an antivirus in the world that would let me install their software without paying money, due to the fact I had a server OS. I wound up installing Microsoft Security Essentials, knowing very well that it was unsupported. But, it was the best I could do for free.

Now, let's fast forward to this weekend.
I had found and purchased a PC for 10 dollars at a garage sale. The owners said that it had been in storage for a long time, but it had some nice goodies that came with it, such as a TV tuner card, and it had Windows XP. So, with great amounts of excitement, I slammed that computer tower onto my desk, plugged it in, and turned it on. It wasn't fast, but it seemed a bit cool, and a bit of a blast to the past after having Windows Vista for the longest time. I then connected it to the Internet. At that moment, I noticed ...
