Task manager - disabled, computer freezes up after a short period of time, "VIRUS ALERT!" on the right of clock

Q: Task manager - disabled, computer freezes up after a short period of time, "VIRUS ALERT!" on the right of clock

I have a very similar problem to this person, (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic160500.html) except I am running Windows XP home edition.
I downloaded a file I presumed would be safe, scanned it with Mcafee before opening it and unwittingly installed Total Secure 2009.
My computer then froze up so I had to restart. On restart, I managed to scan using Mcafee and Ad-aware, Mcafee found RemAdm-Generic (C:\windows\system32\LMInit.dll), Ad-aware found a few PuP's I removed.
I then restarted again, and a new account had been created "Admin" and I couldn't open the task manager on other accounts.
I tried to run MBAM, but after 3-4ish minutes the computer logged me out, then froze on the login screen.
Anyone help out? I don't like having to restart every 3-4 minutes

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.)

A:Task Manager Disabled, Virus Alert Next To Clock, And Rqrkexqq.dll Appeared!

The same thing happened to me. I got the use of my taskbar back thanks to Spybot Search and Destroy, but I still have the "virus alert!" next to my clock and my C drive doesn't show up under my computer. I also ran SUPERanti spyware and norton 360 and they picked up a few things. Did the virus create a administrator account? I can't seem to get rid of the new account either.

Hello, recently my laptop (Dell Inspiron 6400, running WinXP Media Edition)'s been failing; it freezes anywhere from ten seconds to five minutes after I log in. I'm unable to install an antivirus because the laptop freezes during installation. Safe Mode seems to be, well, safer, although even so it has frozen.

I'm unable to install the antivirus (Kaspersky) in Safe Mode because Windows Installer is disabled, and none of the solutions I've found online seem to do the trick. And I suspect that even if i could get the installer to work, it'd freeze halfway through anyway.

I have no idea what's causing the freezing; it might not even be a virus at all. I've noticed that the laptop always freezes at the "Copying new files" stage of the Kaspersky installation, although whether that has something to do with my own timing or that procedure I can't guess. Also, the time that the computer did freeze in Safe Mode, I was attempting to rename a file.

The computer is completely frozen; Num Lock / Scroll Lock can't be activated/deactivated, the mouse doesn't move, etc. I can't even shut down without either pulling the plug out or holding onto the power button.
 

A:Laptop freezes after a short period of time

That model has been out for about three years? How long have you had your Inspiron 6400?

We need to know the configuration, including hard drive size, brand, free space, as well as memory installed.

It could be that the CPU cooling is too full of dust, hair, fiber, etc. to cool adequately... or that the hard drive is failing, or that you have inadequate memory. But it could simply be an infestation that needs to be cleaned out.

Have you tried re-enabling Windows Installer? Have you attempted to use MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware, ComboFix, Windows Defender, Spy Sweeper, Spyware Doctor, or other top-flite spyware detectors and removers?

Hi,

This is my first post here, and my computer appears to be infected.

The Symptoms:
-- The desktop has "disappeared" and is replaced by a blank blue screen. The icons on the desktop are all gone.
-- There is no "bar" at the bottom: no start button, no task bar, no clock, no indications of open programs. i.e., the entire screen is blue.

-- However, the situation is different right after I start-up.
-- At first, I see all my programs. Sometimes I see the task bar and start button, clock, etc., sometimes not.
-- But something is wrong even then. The computer is slow. And I know desktop will not last long. Sometimes if I am quick I can double click on a desktop icon before the desktop disappears.
-- Sometimes there is a "transition" period. For a few seconds I'll see the desktop, then for a few it will go "all blue".
-- When it is "all blue", I can still get into programs. If I open up the task manager, I can click on the "New Task ..." button under the "Applications" tab.
-- I can still work with documents, but thinks are slow.
-- When I start in safe mode, I still have the problem of the missing desktop.

Other Signs:
-- When I can see the clock, it says "VIRUS ALERT!" followed by the time. My google searches inform me that this is a common symptom.

What I have done so far:
-- I've done the Norton "Quick Scan" -- found something the first time, and fixed i... Read more

When i start up the PC my desktop goes BLUE, then that RED screen shows up. When i click on MY COMPUTER i cannot see my C: drive or any of my CD/DVD drives. I get a message that windows cannot find folder names "privacy_danger".

I've read other forums that sound like they have similar problems and i have followed their steps and remved alot of infections, but i still cant see my c:drive or cd/dvd drives, and my computer is soooooo slow now.....

I ran in safemode and offline, and did a SUPERantispyware clean up... it worked fine.
then i tried to do a Malwarebytes clean up in normal mode and on-line (as suggested); removed all items... it asked me to reboot my computer to remove the rest of the infections. i did that, and i still get all the same errors listed above.

Heya! This is my third time doing this (*shame*). I've been pretty good about safe searching, but made a poor decision last night.
Now I'm paying for it and my desktop is disabled, firefox is disabled, my user settings are restricted so I can't alter files or access task manager or settings, helpful websites such as this one are blocked, security updates fail to work for my anti virus/spyware, most hyperlinks that work, take me to a different destination, and many of my programs such as hijack this and others do not load.
After booting in safe mode, tricky backdoor browsing and deleting some files I think were bad, I could get hjt and DSS to run in normal mode. I did all of what I could in the pre-posting steps, but many of them could not be completed. My apologies for that and for deleting some of the malicious files prematurely, but it was the only way I felt I could get a worthwhile log.

Hello,

It seems i have narrowed down my issue that I have been dealing with for it seems like months now. Well essentially my system will reboot anytime it sits for an extended period of time (about 15 to 20 Minutes). My computer will go into standby mode. I do have it set for my computer to never sleep but only my screens. I have followed the BSOD instructions and do and those to attach to this post. Here is the additional information regarding this problem...

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? - x64
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version?Full retail version
- What is the age of system (hardware)? Eh, varies video cards about a year old, memory and hardrives are about the same length of time. Chip is fairly new within a few months.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) OS was freshly reinstalled on 11/17/2011.

All drivers for all pieces of hardware in my machine have had the newest drivers updated, including my video cards. I have also done the BIOS update for both of my video cards available from Palit. Oddly enough i can play Starcraft II for hours and no issue with rebooting... only when it sits for an extended period of time as mentioned earlier. Any ideas woul dbe great...

Thank You,
Josh

Hello Nissan & welcome.

Analyses
Most of your dumps are including your Graphic Driver. So to really make a secure uninstall and get rid of the leftover files of the uninstallation from the Control Panel, we'll use some specific tools. The little guide below tells you what to do to uninstall and install your Nvidia-driver.

Tutorial

i) Find your driver here, save it to your desktop
ii) Download Driver sweeper, for the leftover files
iii) Uninstall your driver from the Control Panel
iv) While rebooting, go into safe-mode without internet (tip: plugout your LAN cable or disconnect wireless)
v) Run Driver Sweeper, click all the Nvidia components and analyse them
vi) Clean them all
vii) Head into Windows, without internet
viii) Install the Driver from the desktop

This lap top hasnt been connected online for quite a while and problems started after used my USB flash disk. After that i couldnt open Task Manager(neighter with right click on task bar - text faded, nor with ctrl-alt-delete) or regedit. Also i cant boot into safe mode (when it starts, suddenly blue screen appears for a milisecond and computer restarts). I cant start AVG system scan, it reports that "application cannot run due to an error while verifying its electronic certificate". I can run AVG guard though. There was problem with C disk (i couldnt open it with double click and i had to use "explore" ). I resolved it by deleting "autorun.ini" file thru command prompt (it was hidden file and, another problem that occured, i cant edit folder options to make hidden files visible). There is also problem with language bar which is disabled and cannot be re-enabled cause its button is faded, though i dont care much about it.

I manage to enter to Task manager and regedit using trick with gpedit.msc. In "User configuration/Administrative templates/System/Ctrl+Alt+Del options/Remove task manager", default value is"not configured".

Hey guys,
So I am running an Hp Pavilion a6244n computer with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I have just started to recently have some really annoying issues. When I try to open google chrome (or any other program really) the computer doesn't do anything for literally like 3 minutes, then it opens. Now when it opens it will work for a little while but then it will stop trying to load pages. I will hit new tab and it will just load a white page and I can't do anything. It took me 5 minutes to get to this website alone. After awhile the computer starts working and everything is smooth but then it freezes up again. I can still click stuff but it doesn't load or do anything. Another example is in Windows Media Player. When I click to play a new song sometimes it just says media changing for a good 5 minutes before it ever works or if I hit the X to close it, it will take just as long. Nothing works at all when the computer freezes. I can't open anything like computer or control panel nor can I close anything. Any ideas?

A:Computer randomly freezes for a period of time

Can I assume you're defragging your hard drive regularly?

If so, then try booting into Safe Mode with Networking. Then attempt to get on the web and see if that makes any difference. If not, the problem is likely hardware related. So you could run a hard drive diagnostic program and check temperatures and voltages in BIOS to determine whether there's overheating or a power issue. You can also run mdsched.exe or Memtest86 to test for RAM errors.

Hi,

Ive had, what I believe to be a backdoor trojan on my computer for about 6 weeks now. It started with a malicious pop up which kept appearing making it look like i had loads of viruses and telling me that I needed to buy this virus scanner and my computer would not power off when shutting down. I knew I had a virus so I tried to use my scanner malwarebytes but it would not open, the virus had got to that as well. Eventually I tried copying malwarebytes to a removable media and managed to scan that way. I had lots of trojans including koobface. My computer was still really slow after the scan and they had not been properly deleted because each scan kept bringing the trojans again.

The next problem was my internet browser would not work, i eventually fixed it (cant remember how) but i believe the virus caused this. Then was the disabling of task manager, regedit and gpedit, which i have found by reading forums how to get this enabled again. I have since downloaded AVG, this tells me i have a trojan horse called 'generic7' again I keep scanning, the same viruses are found and deleted then on reboot they are there again. I also noticed that when i can access task manager some proccesses such as windows defender are really high and the only way to run the computer without it crashing/slowing down is to terminate the proccess. One new thing that has only just started to happen is that the ?task manager/ regit disable has by administrator? pop up sometimes appears and cant be... Read more

Hello.

I encountered several BSODs within days of each other. I don't play games or download anything on my PC. I just use it for surfing the net and general usage (mostly Office). I also technically faced a blue screen just 2 days ago. I clicked on a folder and suddenly my monitor flickered and I saw a flash of blue before it went black.

I'll cut to the chase - my computer is crashing, a lot. It seems to do it mostly when I am either 1) allowing it to idle and do nothing for more than a few seconds, or 2) performing medial tasks like writing in Word or something like that.

All of my info is attached in a zipped file.

I'm specifically focused on the three most recent crashes (Codes 3b, 24, and 1e) . There should be a lot more in there because my system seems to bug-check if I leave it idle for more than 20-30 seconds, but my computer wasn't creating .dmp files until I ran chkdsk with both options selected.

Let me know if you need any further info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a home server running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a PC with an Asus P5N-D motherboard. (nVidia 750i SLI chipset, nForce 10/100/1000 NIC)
We have around 10TB of hard drives connected to it and all are in RAID 1. (two 2TB+2TB arrays with Seagate Green drives and one 1TB+1TB array with Seagate 7200.12 drives)
Randomly, it will decide to slow down from gigabit to 100mbps. (My router shows gigabit as orange and 100mbps as green)
That's very unfortunate for us seeing as we transfer hundreds of gigs of data through it regularly.
If I unplug the cable from my router (Netgear N600 DR3700, DD-WRT v24-sp2 (02/17/11) st) and immediately reconnect it, it goes back to gigabit. (The light also switches from green, 100mbps, to orange, gigabit)

Here is a screenshot of my advanced network settings box.

And here are the settings I have selected:

Network Address: Not Present
Priority and VLAN: Priority Enabled
Speed/duplex settings: Auto Negotiation
VLAN ID: 1
EVERYTHING else is set to Disable

Under Power Management, "Allow .... turn off to save power" is unchecked.
Any help? I'd rather it stay in gigabit mode.
Thanks.

Thank you for your patience. I will be helping you deal with the issues raised in your log from this point onwards

The fix which I have provided for you is for this computer only, it should not be used on any other computer. Each fix is tailor made for the specific task in hand.

Hi

I noticed a day or two ago that software was running extremely slow. Getting sick of waiting I hit ctrl-alt-del and got a pop up box saying "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator". I'm on my own standalone pc and am the only user and I haven't knowingly disabled the task manager. Suspicious, I ran AVG but found no viruses. I then ran AdAware and got some privacy things - but nothing malicious. Then spybot popups started appearing asking me about registry changes. Unsure, I clicked deny - but they kept on appearing. I shut down and re-started and let spybot run. It took all day - it was so slow. It came up with some problems, but then the system hung when clicked to clean up. The problems were.....

Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCentre.TaskManager
Virtumonde
Virtumonde.dll
Zlob.Downloader.vcd

I'm now getting random IE windows opening, and my computer isn't responding at the proper speed - for example although I'm typing correctly, the pc isn't picking up all my key presses so I'm going back to re-type all the time.

I've also noted that all my system restore points seem to have vanished.

I'd really appreciate some help. I'm using XP. My PC is quite old - a pentium.

Many thanks

A:My computer freezes after short time of activity.

Have you tested the hdd? I'd run the hdd manufacturers diagnostic tool on the drive to make sure it's healthy.Having said that it could be a software problem, has this started after installing something new?The next time it freezes have a look here:StartControl PanelPerformance and MaintenaceAdmin ToolsEvent ViewerSystemHighlight a error then click properties, then click on the link below For more information, see Help and Support Center as this may give you information on how to solve the error.

First of all, I'm running on Windows XP, service pack 2

Everytime I reboot, my internet browsers (firefox, avant browser, i.e.) stop working after a short period of time (usually between 15-20 minutes). The weird thing is that even though the internet browser stops working and starts to display a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error, my AIM and torrent program still works and runs perfectly fine.

This is my HiJackThis log if you guys will please take the time to analyze it

I can't install any antivirus and before when I had the antivirus installed would not let me start it
That's all I can tell you.
Please help!!! I'm so mad about this! u cant belive it

I have a laptop along with this desk top at my home. One of my teens went to a web site with the laptop and installed some wallpaper that I think had a virus. (As info, it's got pictures of flowers and zebras on the wallpaper.)

Now the laptop is practically inoperable... extremely slow, and I can tell something is running on it, but have no idea what. I CANNOT even get to the internet using that PC because is is so slow (i.e. I click on something and it takes 30 mins or more to do anything.)

I tried doing a control alt delete, but the task manager button is grayed out and I can't even get into to see what processes are running. The only thing I know is that when I boot up the system, I get a message where it looks like the pc is trying to go out to the internet to do something, and a box comes up saying

cannot open mnubx.exe.tmp

I also get these pop ups asking if I want to "enhance my internet experience"... I read the terms of agreement and say something about EnBrowser.

My problem is I don't know exactly what I can do since I can't use Task Manager and I can't get to the internet with this PC. I'm currently trying another option of getting to the internet now... will post again in a while... was just hoping someone may be able to tell me something that would help me getting started in correcting this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Scroll down to the download section

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I've got a virus on my system (XP Home SP3). When I plug in my flash drive it says the drivers been installed but then the drive doesn't appear, so I can't copy malwarebytes from the flash drive onto my comp. The virus also seems to have blocked access to any site I try to go to to download malwarebytes. If I try to open task manager it says that it has been disabled by the administrator.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can re enable my USB ports or any ideas how I can copy malwarebytes onto my computer?

Cheers

Hi

Looks like you've posted startuplist instead of HijackThis log. If you still need help with this do the following to get latest hjt log:
Do a system scan only
* Click the scan button in the lower left hand corner of the interface and HijackThis will quickly scan your system.
* Once the scan is complete the scan button will now read save log. Click this button to save the log file to your PC. Once you select where you would like to save the file it will open in your systems default text editor. Typically this application is Notepad. Post the log here.

If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on the renamed file to install the application.
For instructions with screenshots, please refer to this Guide.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
