Preferred Solution: first HJT log in a few months

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.)

I update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

Okay first of all I would like to say I have been having on going issues for months to almost a year... I have tried everything I can think of... Including wiping harddrives to DoD standards with dban, gparted etc.... I have tried monitering my connections with wireshark...  I have tried several differet anti- (virus and malware) programs including paid version of kaspersky, malwarebytes, bitdefender, eset.....
This problem also has involved some black hat hackers compromising my system and bank account, credit card etc all being hit and continueing to do so... I have switched ISPs , changed hardware, thrown away devices including cell phones and laptops... It seems that they were also backdoored into several of my devices and were using several different methods to continue to spread and infect other devices.. These devices include android, iphone, ipod, ipad, netbook, laptop, smart tv and even my dvd player (java).. I have tried to ask for help and seek help for this and no one can figure it out or think this cant be real.
I have now thrown out all laptops, and all phones at the same time and started from scratch but having issues on a brand new laptop... I am not sure this is the same issue as before... However, I would like and really appreciate if someone could help me out and view my logs and make sure.. because I have been through hell and back with all these issues..

This computer got a virus several months ago. It redirects the browser and doesn't allow me to do a lot of things, so I got frustrated back then and stuck it in the closet. I fired it up this morning, deleted a bunch of programs, and decided to give it another try. Here's the DDS Log:

A:down for months

I know, being patient is one of the rules, so I apologize in advance. Maybe the title I chose, "down for months" gives the impression that I'm not too interested in resolving this issue - I don't know. I am very interested in getting help with this. I realize this is free voluntary help, and I appreciate that. I noticed that I've had 28 or 29 views, but no one has replied. I'm honestly not trying to seem impatient. Just curious that's all. I have no idea what's wrong with this computer, or how to read that DDS log. My concern is that, since there have been 29 views, I'm assuming those who do know how to read that log have looked at it and decided not to get involved, for whatever reason. If someone who reads the log and doesn't want to help could just leave me a reply saying, "You're screwed - your computer is now an anchor" that would be very much appreciated also.

Thanks again and sorry if I seem impatient. I'm not . . . much

Site looks great... But, when you put in OT at work and have a new born at home it's hard to visit your favorite forum.... I had a quicky for the group to help solve - a 3 parter.

1st part - create a user form to display xml data - what is the vba code to display an xml node in a user form text box.

2nd part - create a macro that when run captures the hilighted words in the current PPT slide then displays it in the VBA userform textbox.

3rd part - on the same userform create a button and code that when clicked will add the text from the "selected text" field then add it to the XML doc.

thanks in advance for the input,

I don't remember what I was doing with the computer (if anything) when it BSOD-ed last month, but this month I was capturing video from a PVR. Something not very stressful at all and something that's been done hundreds of times before. Attached are the dumps and, being a novice, I have no idea what they mean. Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Redirecting for 4 months or so

Read other 16 answers

so a few months ago my laptop randomly began running slow. Nothing was opening and i couldn't connect online. I restarted it and it stayed the same only my laptop wouldn't shut down. I figured it was some form of malware but nothing was picked up when i scanned it. I decided to reset my laptop to it's factory settings but the problem remained.

I was getting help from malwareremoval.com just to be sure there wasn't anything infected on my laptop, which there wasn't and i was referred to this site for help.
so here are my current symptoms

my laptop wont shut down or restart. It wont even go to he windows is shutting down screen, it stays on the desktop (works in safe mode though)

It would start up really slow until i stopped some programs from starting though startup inspector

and i cant update windows. when it automatically updates it gets stuck during the download. When i go to control panel update its get stuck and nothing happens. If i go to windows update the screen turns white and get stuck. I had a bit of success after i used dial-a-fix and managed to get into microsoft update but it jst stayed at the inspecting system part. I've even downloaded xp sp3 from a different site but still does not install.

so im not sure what else i could do so i hope anyone here can help

please and thanks

I've used Windows Backup and Restore ever since I installed Win7 on this machine. There is a 750gb drive backed up to a 1.5tb WD Elements drive. I have backups set to run early Monday mornings.

Yesterday, Backup told me that my drive was full and there was no room for another backup. "manage space" told me that there were two backup sets, and one system image. The system image was 615gb. The datafile backups were 700gb, and there were two. The big one was from 5/08/11-2/20/12 and was 530gb while the second was from 2/20/12-2/20/12 and was 170gb. There were 80gb of free space.

I figured the second one was not a complete datafile backup and decided to throw caution to the wind and delete the earlier set, and then run Backup again, which it completed Tuesday afternoon. This resulted in a single datafile backup set from 2/20/12-2/21/12 which was 419gb. The system image is now 619gb, and there is 359gb of free space.

I always thought I was supposed to see multiple backup sets, but now I'm thinking it has no room to make a completely new backup set, so it just keeps appending deltas to the original set until it gets full. In that case I probably wouldn't see additional sets unless I was using, say, a 3tb drive. Is that correct?

A:Only one backup set after nine months?

its possible it is saving incremental backups, only saving the changes made since the initial backup,
check the settings

So what will happen with my:

Windows 8 Release Preview
Evaluation Copy. Build 8400

Is there a way to turn it from a preview into Windows 8 Pro?
Can I install over it? (and keep everything the way it is: programs, settings, etc.)
Can I continue to use it as a preview or will my computer evaporate into a cloud of smoke if I do that?

Seems you've got back sticks of RAM, just buy new RAM and it'll be fine
Test each stick separately to identify the defective one(s)

I havent been posting in these forums for 4 months now, a lot of things have changed in the CPU world I'm sure. I've actually been waaaaaay to busy with schoolwork and other activities to actually check out this site. The layout is much different than before, I'll get used to it. But anyway, the reason I am posting here is that I want to know what new has happened in the past 4 months... I'm sure a lot has changed (wat the heck is windows XPsp2???), I just thought instead of going to all the manufacturers websites to see whats new, I thought I'd ask you guys. So, what is new?

A:W32/Rootkit.BAK - I've been ignored for FOUR MONTHS! Please help :(

Read other 16 answers

Never thought too much about it until reading some threads here. My Disk Defrag was set to once a week which I think is default. AFAICT my disks have always been 0% fragmented.

I don't think it is defragging them to get them to 0, they are not fragmented to any degree, according to Windows.

I decided to change the schedule to once a month based on some comments that defragging too often can be bad. So after eight days I analyzed C: and it still says 0%.

The computer is 7 months old, has 70GB of data and has had a lot of things moved in and out. Shouldn't there be some fragmentation at this point?

I previoulsy used Auslogics on a different computer and understand Windows may not find as many fragments as Auslogics or others.

I just wonder if it's really possible to be 0% fragmented for so long?

A:0% fragmented, for seven months

Did you run Analyze Disk?

Hello there.I brought my HP laptop from PC World in Feb, I'm still paying for it through finance. The only stock they had was their display model so I brought that one.The laptop won't turn on anymore. When I plug the power in it flashes white next to the charging hole and that's it. I've tried removing the battery for 60 seconds and re-trying but it doesn't work.Please can somebody help.Thanks

A:Won't turn on - only had for 4 months.

It does still have full HP warranty so if worse comes to worse. You have tried the hard reset which is the easiest thing to try. The only other thing that might be easy to do is check the AC adapter to see if it is putting out power. Take it to any electronics store and they can test it with a voltage meter. If the AC adapter is good I am afraid you have had a catastrophic hardware failure (dead motherboard) which will require warranty replacement.

Hi, I'm coming here because everytime I format my computer into Windows 7, it'll show up a BSOD of uncorrectable hardware error while playing games, but in this case, it's Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas.

Any ideas?

Hello Tony & welcome,
If you are getting BSOD's & want them analyzed please follow the directions below -

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
** Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.**

*Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl Press Enter.
*Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
*Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
*Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kb) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies).
*Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Malwarebytes, and more specifically Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit finds these two on every scan after a reboot, even though I clean 'em up:
Apparently they are some sort of registry keys, but I have no idea what is causing them on every restart (especially if the computer is connected to the internet).
I've struggled with this for months now, and I thought I had it fixed by resetting the router but apparently didn't solve it. So, the question goes: What is this, how do I fix it and what causes it?
(I've tried running the following programs and the problem still remains:
Malwarebytes anti-rootkit
Norton stuff
and few more.)
Much appreciated!

I've made multiple threads on Reddit, Tomshardware and 4chan and no one has been able to solve my issue.
In January 2015 I decided to upgrade my CPU and Motherboard so I took my PC to a local shop and had them do the upgrade. As I was moving from an AMD CPU to an Intel one they re-installed my OS as well and made sure all the drivers were up-to date. I took the PC home and started using it by day and leaving it on by night to torrent. Every morning I'd find that the PC had restarted over-night as it had crashed. After a week or so it would hang and then crash every day with error code 0x000000F4.

I took it back to the shop and left it with them for a week, they were never able to make it crash. I took it back home and it crashed straight away. I asked them to replace the motherboard and CPU and test it so they kept it for another 3 weeks. I took it home again and it crashed straight away.

At this moment all I had plugged in was a keyboard, mouse, screen and Ethernet cable. I took out the Ethernet cable, switched the mouse and keyboard and it still crashed. I plugged the PC into my TV instead and i... Read more

Been meaning to write a note here for perhaps some tips and suggestions on what to do to get my 8.0 upgraded successfully to 8.1.

Months ago I was very excited to upgrade as I read of all the great improvements and now there is a note on line that 8.1 will get more upgrades in April.

So I got the banner across my desktop asking me if I wanted to upgrade so eventually I gave in and allowed the process to happen. I was very excited until the final reboot and well... I booted into a very grave mess.

I had NO background image, black screen. No task bar, no icons, only "a cursor in the dark" as I like to call it. Yea, I actually had a cursor I could move around and click but I couldn't "see" what I was clicking on. So upon trying what I could I called up Microsoft and after a while they asked permission to take over my machine and after 4 HOURS we both gave in and I had to do a full reinstall. At least the newer Windows saves all the older stuff in a Windows.old folder so not all was lost but enough to know I didn't want to go through that again.

Apparently the video drivers became corrupt along with Windows Explorer (that's what the MS tech was able to figure out). She was just as amazed as I was.

Anyway, I've laid off the upgrade again in hopes I could get here and ask what it was I should do before trying again? My video drivers are all up to date (as they were the day all that happened). The only thing I had running was the scrip... Read more

A:Tried and failed with 8.1 months ago

Have had mixed results with 8.1 here, had to revert to 8 on some laptops, am postponing any more upgrade until some time after 8.1.1 is out and has been discussed\reviewed.

But in all circumstances, IMO move nr1 in any upgrade process is to 1st do some good imaging (easeus here for xp\w7, macrium for w8).

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

Hi guys.. well first of all thanks for reading my problem ...
Since about May I have been having problems with my Pc but had been finding ways for it to work somehow but today the same problem that has been going on for 3 months started again... I have a Pentium 4 Pc 1.6GHz 394mb Ram and have Windows Xp Pro installed...

The problem is that many times my computer crashes and runs into a blue screen that states that the file "sys32k.sys" has caused an error and the computer has been shut down... another blue screen that appears states that there is a "memory_management" problem and that the computer was shut down and a third blue scrren that appears says that there was a fatal error and that windows could not be started...

this last blue screen appears only whe starting up windows... and the first 2 while I am usually working or simply while on the desktop...

this is making me NUTS... literally...
I have the theory that my Hard Drive is the one with the problem because I have formatted the drive completely about 10 times and made a clean windows Xp again and the same problem appears or that my windows xp is faulty and doesn't install the file -->"sys32k.sys" correctly... I even changed the motherboard and tested it without the VideoCard I recently bought (which I taught was the original problem) but the same occurs..

One of my friends is having problems with monitors....

Apparently, the computer in question has went through 3 monitors and on its 4th one now, since May....

Anyone have any idea as to what would cause this?

All of the monitors haven't been brand new, but have not been used much either.

I instantly assumed a power issue... for the following reasons:

1.) He lives in very small area with very low quality power lines anyway

2.) The area we live in is known to have lots of power issues

3.) I took a look at the machine... when it first comes on, the power supply sounds like it buzzes, but then quits by the time it gets into windows..... this doesn't happen everytime, but sometimes.

The power supply is a 250 watt atx power supply.

This is a problem with my computer crashing when playin games

ok i had a friend build me a custom made computer....and he loaded windows ME on it. I realized this OS was crap so i upgraded to windows XP at a friends lan. This is where all the trouble began. So i loaded my favorite game (counter-strike) on my new XP operating system and after 2 minutes of playin it would crash wit an error note. I tried and tried playing again but still had errors after 2-5 minutes of playing.

Next i decided to clear out XP and go to 2k pro......still same crashing problem while playin games.

Next i went back to ME thinking all would be better if i went back to when it worked fine. NO still same problem

Then one day i bump computer and it shuts off and from then on my computer shuts off with even the slightest touch. So i take it to the local computer store and the guy tells me the mobo wasnt properly screwed in and connected or something like that and says that this was probably the reason why my computer crashes while playing game.------- well it fixed the nudging and turning off problem but games still crash!

I Reformatted wit various OS's time and time and stil had problem.
So finally i thought well it could be a ram issue. So a friend let me borrow a stick of 256 pc3500 mushkin ram.

Hi Is it registered with HP? When registration occurs the warranty would be adjusted to start from the born on date (I think you press ESC and then F1 to view this). So if you could try that and then ask again if there is still a difficulty.

About 6 months ago I was infected w Trojan/Vundo and the BC gang helped me get back on my feet. I ran ComboFix, use Ad-Aware, AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Spyware Blaster.

I enjoyed 6 worry-free months and now I'm stuck again. Windows will not complete loading--freezes. I tried to use my windows recovery in safe mode and clicking "next" prompts no further action after I've chosen a previous date. I have done a HJT log in safe mode only.

Symptoms when windows was working still:

Google results were links to other ad sites.
IE would not allow me to go to BC.com and other helpful forums but would allow me to go to youtube, google, yahoo, etc.
Updating Ad-Aware, Spybot, and AVG was not allowed.
Malwarebytes would no longer load (would show to load in the Task Manager but nothing further.)

So I feel frustrated because I can't use any malware/virus programs to clean. And I can't load windows in anything but safe mode.

Any advice would be extremely appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

A:Seems Worse than 6 months ago

Hi and welcome back. I am sending you a private message with instructions. Please follow those first and then run malwarebytes according to these instructions.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note:-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. -- MBAM may make changes to your registry a... Read more

I'm fighting a BSOD for about 50 days now, It's happening randomly in different situations for a minimum of two times daily.

I'm suspecting that my memory is the problem (2x2GB Chaintech APOGEE) as it appears in a weird way in Gigabyte easytune (some times appear as one memory module, other times with different frequency and properties for each module).

I ran Memtest86 with one module at a time and there were no errors.

I also ran the Windows 7 Memory test on both modules with no errors.

CPU: Intel i7-930

Mainboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

Display: Geforce GTS 250 1GB

HDD: Seagate 1TB SATA

Windows Version: Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Windows Type: Full Retail

Hardware Age: 2 Months

Windows Age: Around 50 Days (Repaired Two Days ago)

Running Kaspersky Internet Security 2011

I appreciate any help, This BSOD causes a serious pain & I lost work many times because of it.

Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD for 2 Months

One error is caused by Kaspersky.. will check further.. and others will be here to take a look. I would recommend removing it and replacing with MSE or another antivirus

I built my computer about 2 years ago. Here is the hardware:
Gigabyte GA-EG45M-DS2H motherboard
Intel E8500
Corsair 8GB (4x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 DHX Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL4(4-4-4-12)
3x Samsung SpinPoint 1TB hard drives
Running Windows 7 in 64-bit

Every three or 4 months, the computer "dies". At start up i get blue screen saying:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
A process or thread crucial to system operation has been unexpectedly exited or
(some other stuff about did i just install new hardware etc)
Technical information:
STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8007699730, 0XFFFFFA8007699A10,00

Collecting data for crash dump...
Initializing disk for crash dump...
Beginning dump of physical memory.
Dumping physical memory to disk:

Over the last couple of years this has happened 4 times. What I did in the past was to re-install the operating system on a new, blank hard drive, and then copy over all the info from the previous hard drive. That has worked fine, which makes me believe this is not a problem with Windows, but possibly a problem with the motherboard.
What i also find strange is that after installing the OS again, things are fine for about 3 of 4 months, then ... BSOD!

Are you able to tell me more about the error message, the reason for this problem, and how to solve it?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.


A:Same problem every 3 months.

Can you please provide a JCGriff report as mentioned here? Thanks. That'll give us enough to feed on.

While waiting for us to analyze, you may also want to do some hardware tests in the meantime. Here's some options:

CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Large FFTs; 9+ hours)
RAM: Memtest86+ Run overnight (or at least 7 passes)
HD: Seatools (Short & Long Self Tests)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

To add, you can turn on Driver Verifier. Any crashes produced while it is on have a much better chance pointing us at an offending driver (if it's caused by a driver).

I'm working in Access 2007. I have a Query that has the following (3) Fields: [Product ID], [Total Value], [Month]

I want to take this query and have it calculate a difference of the total value between 2 months.

Any Ideas?

Do you need to total the months first?

Hi guys,
Yesterday I finally, after doing a lot of reading about this imaging, decided to go for it, with this macrium reflect.
But as soon as I opened the program (macrium) it offered me to create some disk (recovery disk?) which I accepted of course.
When it came to insert the CD which I did, this message popped up that the CD has to be erasable. It was a CD-R
Now I wonder, since it will be my first imaging (I should take a complete one) if one CD will be enough and what kind of CD should it be. A CD-RW??
Will this OS partition (Windows 7 professional) with a couple of programs installed, fit on a CD?? Should n't I use a DVD instead?? Maybe a couple of DVD's?? If so should it be DVD-RW
If it matters, my ODD is a DVD burner blue ray.
Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Macrium isn't going to image your HDD to the CD, it wants to create a one time recovery disc, that you can use to boot to, to run Macrium should you not be able to enter the windows environment, or prefer to boot from the disc to recover from a saved image. This is just creating a boot disc that will allow you to boot from the CD to run Macrium should you need to/desire. Go ahead and burn the disc, and boot from it to see how it works. You can then use Macrium to make an image of your hard drive. This will be on a 2nd HDD, internal or external, preferably. Backing up to CD's or DVD's would take many discs, and it... Read more

Okay. I just did the whole reply with HJT logs and do combofix like a billion times over at GeeksToGo. All the malware/spyware was removed (apparently) from my system. Now, I've been scanning my system weekly with AVG8 and Spybot, but I seem to be missing this trojan thats affecting things on my system.

I CANNOT RUN HIJACKTHIS. It wont let me. I uninstalled, reinstalled, did it 3 times. Cant run it. Wtf? =( The trojan must be pretty serious for it to block a program from me using.

I honestly do not know what to post here because I cannot run Hijackthis. I'm running WinXP 32bit SP3, on a Q6600 quad core at 2.4ghz, 2ghz DDR2 ram, and I need help ridding this spyware from my system. I would attempt combofix and kaspersky myself, but I dont know the scripts for CF and I figure the infection would just outsmart me anyways.

I need some advice on what I can do first, as I have no logs or anything to post here so far. I can list the symptoms aswell.

Google searches are redirecting me and opening new tab windows, sometimes directing me to a completely different site then what I was searching for.
Certain sites say I have been infected by a trojan which is DOS attacking them when I try to connect to their servers.
MSN Hotmail isnt able to open whatsoever. I have to go through mail.live.ca to get to my inbox. Buttons on msn arent working??
I do my fairshare of downloading, and certain sites wont even let me connect anymore, even though I am able to connect on this network ... Read more

I attempted to look at the minidumps you posted. However, when I try to extract them it says no files to extract. Please post the minidumps on a reply not in zipped folders and we will be more than happy to look them over for you.
