eset list of unknown drive list

Q: eset list of unknown drive list

when I go to scan my computer with eset, there is a list of drive letters to scan but they don't go anywhere, don't show up on the list in "computer". and even eset gets an error. Is it possible they are hidden and from vmware use? or could it be something else? I've scanned with eset and malewarebytes but my computer is clean as far as I can tell. Any thoughts?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello!  Occasionally, when I seem to least expect it there is an additional "drive" listed in the above location of my HP Pentium Windows 8 laptop.  So, there is my C drive, my Recovery (D) drive and my optical (E) drive.  But sometimes there is another drive that's not mine and doesn't appear to be in any way connected to Windows Update b/c there ARE no pending updates I have initiated or downloaded and it can appear for no reason.  It is always 256MB and generally has 156MB of that used.  I can not browse it b/c even though I am logged in as admin, the drive is locked.  I can not format it to wipe it (same reason) and the only way I can get rid of it is to reboot--sometimes it comes back, when I am not watching--or using CCLeaner's DRIVEWIPE utility which when I wipe that unknown drive, I get the blue screen with a message telling me something went wrong, an unhappy face :-( and I am told to wait while "files are updated" (and a percentage ticker as the "files" get updated). 
 
I do NOT wait--I just long-press the power button which shuts down the computer.  Then I restart and it starts like normal.

A:Chronic unknown 256MB "drive" appears in Devices & Drives list

There are at least 5 partitions/drives/volumes on W8/10 systems with only one physical hard drive installed.
Most of them don't have drive letters assigned, so you can't easily see them.
I suspect that you are seeing one of these partitions.
 
If that is the case, DO NOT mess with it - as doing so may render your system unbootable!
If you think it's from an infection, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Please read the pinned topics at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post there.
If you do decide to mess with it, make sure that you have backed all of your data up, and that you have recovery media ready in case the system won't boot (and we can't fix the boot problem here).
 
For starters, have a look at (run) diskmgmt.msc and take a screen shot for us to have a look at.
My system (a Lenovo with W10) has 6 partitions, only 2 of which have drive letters (C: and D: )

I'm running Win10 Pro 64bit and Revo Uninstaller Pro v3.1.5. There is a huge discrepancy in the installed programs lists provided by Revo Uninstaller and the Win10 Programs and Features control panel. They both say there are 83 installs (that's good). But Revo Uninstaller claims that 15 programs were installed a few days ago on 2/29/2016. The correct number is 3 which is what Win10 says. Today I uninstalled Revo Uninstaller (using Revo Uninstaller to do it) and then reinstalled it. No help.

I guess it might be OK to ignore this discrepancy but I find it surprising.

I have two lists.
List one is raw data. List two is a collection of flag/alert words.

I need to find any term in list one that contains any flag word from list two.

Examples
LIST ONE
appleworm
wormapple
woapplerm

LIST TWO
Apple

In this example every term on list one would return a result of 'true'. LIST TWO is always much shorter than list one.

I was trying to set it up so that in the column directly to the right of LIST ONE produces a 'true' if that list one term contains in any fashion any term from LIST TWO.

As you will see in the example I was also trying to have a similar column to the right of LIST TWO so that I could easily see how many of the key terms had been found in the much larger list.

The sample also has color fill based on the True/False to make it easier to visualize.

Can anyone help make this work correctly?
Match does not work because I am not looking for identical strings.

Processes list showed 54, and the System Configeration Utility showed only 23 that were checked? I already unchecked 14 of those, & have shutdown several times since, and now have 47 processes showing in Task Mgr. (??) Do I simply use the definitions on sysinfo.org and delete what I determine in Task Mgr? I wonder why the lists do not match?

Also, can someone suggest the best computer cleanup program, free, or otherwise for a medium knowledge user? And, I am wondering what my virtual memory should be at.

I ended up deleting both accounts and in the process, I forgot to grab 4 files I had in my Programs file... So, I used System Restore (24-hours), and it started happening as soon as I got back on.

Can someone tell me what to do here? do i need to delete it somehow/. I've put a search in files and folders and nothing comes up. Any ideas would be great as to what this is....thanks in advance Roz x

A:Unknown Program In Start Up List...

Did you find that processes running in Task Manager? Did you use Msconfig to uncheck it? Was there a file path listed to the right of that entry? If so, open Windows Explorer and navigate to that path to see if its present. You may have to Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files, folders. Double-click on My Computer, go to Tools > Folder Options and click on the View tab. Under Hidden Files and Folders, check "Show hidden files and Folders", uncheck "Hide Protected operating system Files (recommended)", uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types", and hit Apply > OK.You could be dealing with just a registry entry remnant and the file has already been removed by an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, that usually results in a startup error where Windows says the "file cannot be found".Anytime you come across a suspicious file which you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.Post back with the results of the file analysis.

Hi, I need some help from you guys to clarify some issues in Outlook 2003.
I have added some contacts, catagorised them, eg. Colleagues, Friends, Family. Now that I want to send e-mails to all my colleagues.

I opened the "New Message to Contact" then clicked on the "To" button and waited to see the list of my contacts show up, however, it shows a dialog box saying:

"The address list could not be displayed (not including the smiley ofcourse). The contacts folder associated with this address list could not be opened; it may have been moved or deleted... blah blah blah"

Knowing that nothing is deleted or damaged, I ignored it, and tried to create distribution list, gave it a name and clicked on "Select Members" then the same messsage box appears (as above).

I've been told that it uses contacts in the "Address Book" of Windows (to my knowledge, when you back up Outlook 2003 .pst files, these entried aren't backup too) and I would liek to keep my contacts in one place, in the .pst that is, so does this mean, to have distribution list (mailing list) to mass mail to my colleagues, I must use Windows's Address Book ? This has also been an issue with my clients who use Outlook.

How does all these contacts thingy work ? I would like to get my head around it, gimme a hand guys
 

A:Outlook Mailing-List / Distribution List

You need to set up Outlook to use your Contacts as an address book. Go to Tols > Options and click the Mail Setup tab and select the Mail Options button. Select the radio button for View or Change Existing directories or Address books. Click next and see if there is an entry for Outlook Address book and if it isn't there add it. If it is there it may be corrupted thus your message so delete it and recreate it. Once it is in there open your contacts folder and in the Outlook bar on the left right click on the contact item and select properties. select the Outlook Address Book tab and put a check in "Show this Folder as an Address Book" Should work after that.

Edit: Sorry I made the topic an forgot to change the title. Should be: "List Files in Folder With Ignore List" or something along those lines.

I'm a game server admin. What I want to do is generate a text file which will be used when I launch the server. An example of the text file I want to produce is here:


Code:
sv_name "PlayMyServer"
sv_maxplayers 16
sv_mapcycle_add wizard ctf3
sv_mapcycle_add bloodgulch ctf3
sv_mapcycle_begin
Line 1 and 2 will be hard coded into the script. In fact, this section will have more lines but for this example, I've cut it down. Lines 3 and 4 are codes that add all maps to the server: wizard and bloodgulch. These are *.map files. Line 5, like lines 1 and 2, are to be hard coded.

The map files are in the \maps subdirectory of the game. What I'm looking to do, is create a batch file that will generate the above text. That is, getting a list of map files in the \maps directory and concatenating it with the proper text before and after. I also want to have the .map extension removed from the lists.

The \maps subdirectory has a few *.map files that aren't actual maps, in fact I don't know what they are. So, I would like to be able to allow for exclusions, which I will hard code as well. (i.e.: ui.map, sounds.map)

Note that this script will probably be saved somewhere in the Quick Launch folder and I want to specify the location of the output and the name of the file. It will be in a text file format.

This script will make a text listing all files in a folder.

D:\Data is where the folder is located and D is the drive where the text file "List" will be created. Note Windows 7 will NOT allow the text file to be created on C-drive.

You may have to edit to get what you want in the text files. I have found this script to be very useful.

Can I remove Systemworks and Firewall and re-install them or will that cause problems?

Hi all-
 
 
  In the last week I have noticed that a mystery phone has been listed in my network devices list.  It was quite clearly not mine.
 
I immediately recorded its MAC address and tried (with no luck) to get windows to tell me more.  My Asus router did not list the MAC address as connected to my home wifi.  Googling revealed no useful info.
I did not have a password on my login (stoopid) so I applied one and rebooted.
 
Today, I noticed a similar phone unknown to me, listed in my laptop network device list.  Again, it is quote clearly not mine.  MacAddressLookup org did not have a listing for the MAC address this time.  Windows was unable to give me the serial number, IP address or phone number in either event.
 
A fresh full scan with a fully updated Avast found nothing.  Spybot S&D is now running.
 
Needless to say I am concerned.  I don't know if this is some hack attempt or malware.  Could this be just a couple of random phones trying to connect to anything they see.  This seems to be just my laptop.  I have no evidence to suggest my router was accessed.
 
Thank you for any help & insights anyone can provide!
 
Cheers-
 Oli

A:Massive list of unknown, network system processes running on my PC?

Hi there Elwood,you obviously have a lot of applications installed and i bet that they all are set to auto-update themselfs.Thats half of them processes running not to mention the os's procedures that are either waiting or listening for doing their assigned work.By only having a browser running,the browser itself,as well as its add-ons are some established processes,your AV has also some waiting,listening or established ones.The point is,do you recognize each and every one and through which ports all this is happening.Try Sysinternals Utilities process explorer and under properties figure out who is who,its really like witch hunting...

Hello everyone,
Please help me to understand this.

On Router2, we can see the routes advertised:
Network Next Hop Metric LocPrf Weight Path

*> 192.168.4.192/26 10.1.1.9 0 0 100 iClick to expand...



If I use an access-list to filter out few networks:

R2#conf t R2(config)#access-list 5 deny 192.168.4.0 0.0.0.127
R2(config)#access-list 5 permit any
Click to expand...

Will this command filter out 192.168.4.128/26 and 192.168.4.192/26 along with 192.168.4.0/25? If not why?
I think it should filter out because /26 comes under /25.
And why we need to use prefix list to filter 192.168.4.192/26 and 192.168.4.128/26?

R2(config)#ip prefix-list exclude_4 seq 5 deny 192.168.4.0/24 ge 25 le 26
R2(config)#ip prefix-list exclude_4 seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0 le 32

Sorry bad title, hard to explain the issue. I'll try to do better now.

On my Apps list is the installed apps. As expected. But many of the installed apps include more than just the app in the list. An example, I have installed RoboForm on the Apps List is a list of several RoboForm icons. The icons, Buy RoboForm, Generate Passwords, New version check, RoboForm, RoboForm Editor, Search Box, Search Files, Taskbar Icon, and Uninstall. A total of 9 Icons for this one program (App.) I have other apps with the same issue, but RoboForm is the worst. Is there a way to group these icons so that I only have 1 RoboForm icon? There are also other icons on the list that I would like to delete such as the "Register Device" that came with my new Dell laptop. It was registered now I don't need / want to be reminded to do that again.

Hopefully this makes sense to readers, it is very frustrating to me.

Thanks,
Ron

A:How can I group the list in the Apps list?

Hello Ron,

If you like, you can sort the Apps screen by name, date installed, most used, or category. Name or category may be best for what you are wanting.
Apps Screen - Sort By in Windows 8.1
Afterwards, you can also add or remove items from your Apps screen.
"Apps" Screen - Add or Remove Items in Windows 8
Hope this helps,

Hi all,

I have a fairly specific problem with absolutely no solution, first time on a forum I am quite desperate!

The main purpose of buying my laptop in the first place was to maintain my ebay store. Internet seems fine, i can access and use all websites as normal and can also search and buy on ebay BUT for some reason when I try to list an item for sale something feels like it's blocking the website or computer from selecting selling catergories and creating a listing. The topics to select on ebay are ghosted and the green loading bar stops loading, the description at the bottom says that (1) item is remaining in the download but it stays like that forever.

I have done the following:

Contacted Ebay's online instant help. We tried creating a listing on ebay using firefox, internet explorer and google chrome. No change.

We lowered all internet security settings and removed all caches etc.

I have Teltra pre-paid wireless broadband and honestly i don't think there's an issue with the internet as all other websites are fine.

Could it be a compatibility issue between ebay and windows 7? This laptop is very new and i can't even use it for the reason it was purchased in the first place!

ANY HELP IS WELCOME! THANKYOU!!!

SUZY

Just relying on my normal suspicions check any non-Windows firewall or security suite. Often manufacturers install Norton or McAfee or something else, people don't realize it, and run into a variety of networking problems. If you go to Start - Control Panel - Programs and Features - you should be able to spot one. If you find one uninstall it unless you plan to pay for definition updates as soon as the trial period ends.

(NOTE:  Links open in a new tab.)
In the TechNet article
here I see reference to a schema v.2 for the EMIE tool. It will apparently spit out the xml using the new version 2 of the schema. But the download link only goes to downloads for Win7/8 (schema v.1), and I cannot find any reference to where I can obtain
the Windows 10 version.
For example,
this article specifically references a Windows 10 version, where
this one references Windows 7 and 8.  Finding the Windows 10 version has proven impossible so far.
We have several sites which need to be opened in IE instead of Edge, and using our old Enterprise Mode site list is not working on our Windows 10 clients.
Current site list example:
<rules version="4">
    <emie>
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>
    </emie>
</rules>

Etc.
Reading about the
v.2 schema leads me to think that the output from the tool is incorrect.  The documentation suggests that the output for Windows 10 should be:

<site-list version="205">
  <site url="www.contoso.com">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
  </site>
</site-list>

Or am I missing something here?
