IE using huge amts of memory and slow shutdown- system denied write access....

Q: IE using huge amts of memory and slow shutdown- system denied write access....

I ran hijackthis. First thing that popped up was:

For some reason your system denied write access to the Host file. If any hijacked domains are in this file, HijackThis may NOT be able to fix this.
If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this, click Start, Run and type:
notepad c:\Windows\System32\drivesr\etc\host

and press Enter. Find the line{s} HijackThis reports and delete them. Save the file as 'host.' (with quotes), and reboot.
for Vista: simply exit HijackThis, right click on the HijackThis icon and choose Run as admin.

Here's the log file:

Preferred Solution: IE using huge amts of memory and slow shutdown- system denied write access....

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 am having a problem with google redirect, and there are a couple of files that avast couldn't move to the chest, but I think they were moved on reboot...something called win32 sirefef, something with desktop ini.

Should I change this file in hijack this?

When I try and run Hijack this I get a message saying "your system denied write access to Hosts file. You can edit the file yourself by doing this and that blah, blah....but when I try I just get something that says "sample hosts file" and nothing about the "Hijack This" reports I'm supposed to be deleting and saving as 'hosts' and rebooting (per hijack this instructions). I can't turn on my windows security center service and I have a broadband connection pop up constantly that I'm not sure is supposed to be there or not. My computer was infected with the fake security warnings thing a few months back and who knows what else but I thought malware-bytes got rid of it all.

I have kinda setup a network with my computer and a laptop which has just been formatted. It now has XP service pack 2 installed and I have to enter the password and username of an account on the laptop in order to access the resources.
Now I can access the laptop using my computer, when the laptop tries to access my computer, and tries to get a file, the message on the title always comes up.

I have unchecked simple file sharing and enabled full access (read/write) on the laptop whose account Im using. But it didnt work.

When opening my computer today, I have noticed a message about migration and program controls and some information about windows NT and windows 3.x This has never popped up and am wondering if this has made any changes to my computer not the laptop.

So Is there a simple way that does not restrict the laptop from getting the resources on my computer??

I'm trying to delete a folder off my desktop, and Ive been at it for about an hour now. I really like solving things on my own but this one has really got me. Okay, I'm the only user on this PC, and I made sure I have full control through the security settings. When that didn't work, I altered the UAC to never notify me. Finally when that failed, I found a a registry edit online that allows me to "Take ownership" by right clicking the file. I see DOS for a few seconds and "access denied" then it disappears. I also noticed that some of the files are read only which would explain why it wont let me delete them, but it wont let me alter any of the folder settings at all. The folder I'm trying to delete is a music folder with a bunch of sub folders as albums. I have no idea what caused this particular folder to start acting up, but I was messing with WMP as well as TVersity setting up a media server. ANY help at all will be appreciated!! thanks.

1st time posting on this forum so forgive me if I am uninformed about certain things! (Great grandmother from Palm Springs)I would just like someone to look over my HJT to make sure I don't have anything lurking around there. I haven't checked it for a very long time but I have been having massive flickering on every stroke (even while I type right now) After searching some, I read that flickering might be from recently MS downloads for ? (something?) I have had automatic downloads I do believe, so I might have downloaded something to do with drivers, card? Could it be that? I tried some time ago (before all this flickering) to change something about the resolution and messed it up, so was a tad fearful in doing anything in that area again by myself. For your instructions, could you be so kind and to direct me how to get back to this forum (or send me a link if at all possible)When I did run the HJT log, I did get a screen that came up and said:"For some reason your system denied write access to the Host file.

Hi,

My WoW password was reset so am thinking my computer is compromised (Since they obviously accessed my email)

currently running a malaware antibytes scan and when its done I will run a Norton Scan. Any other tips on what I should run?

Also I ran hijackthis so that I can post the log here and it says that hijack this is denied write acccess to hosts file and to remove entries with hijackthis in them but I checked the hosts file and there are no such entries. Also when hijackthis is done with the scan it tried to open a log file but it says not found.

Please advise.
Thanks

I'm running Win7 64bit and my IE 8 browser's search provider had been corrupted by a program, according to an error I receive. Because I use Mozilla, and I'm running a fairly new PC, I figured the search provider may have been some Dell-based provider, and I thought nothing of it. However, I decided to investigate anyway. I did a small search and found out that it may be born from a BHO, so I downloaded BHORemover and found an "unknown" BHO listing, comprised of a string of alphanumeric digits similar to a registry entry. Considering that it was unknown, I attempted to delete it via the program to no avail. I looked in IE's options to see if I could see it listed in the search provider section. Nothing but bing was listed. I then downloaded HijackThis and ran a scan. The unknown BHO showed up. I clicked to correct the problem and ran the BHORemover again to check for removal. The unknown BHO didn't show up. I re-ran HijackThis, and received an odd error message:

"For some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts file."

The message is longer than that, and I can transcribe the entire message if needed. I assume the error was a result of the deletion of the no-name BHO. HijackThis doesn't show the no-name during a scan, but has the BHO in its "backups" tab. To be safe, I ran a Malwarebytes and McAfee scan and both came back clean.

Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance, and I hope to hear from someone soon.

A:HijackThis denied write access to Hosts file

The HOSTS file is a text file that maps an IP address to a name. It has no extension and can be viewed using notepad.Double-click on the HOSTS file. A message will appear saying Windows can't open the file or Choose the program you want to open this file.Scroll down the list of programs until you see Notepad.Select it and click OK.To view the Hosts file in Notepad automatically, go to Start > Run and type: notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hostsSince the Hosts file is often used and altered by malware, some security programs (like Spybot S&D) will lock the file's read-only attributes as protection so it cannot be changed without your knowledge unless that feature is disabled.The "system denied writes access" is normal when using HijackThis and other tools on Vista/Windows 7 due to the restrictions imposed by the Users Access Control (UAC). The HOSTS file is being protected. There is no need to worry about it and you can ignore the message when there is no evidence of malware infection.Keep in mind that running HijackThis on a 64-bit machine may show log entries which indicate (file missing) when that is NOT the case so you need to verify that the file is actually missing. Anti-malware scanners have problems enumerating the drivers and services on 64-bit machines so they do not always work properly. WOW64 is the x86 emulator that allows 32-bit Windows-based applications to run on 64-bit Windows but x86 applications are re-direct... Read more

When I boot up using the Bart Floppy, I can see a shared drive on the network but I can't write to it. I changed the setting in system.ini for file sharing to "yes", but I still have the problem. I can write to a mapped drive when in windows.

Please help!

I am getting this message when I try to copy files from my workstation to our server. I checked the permissions and everything is full access. I'm also unable to delete any of the files I previously copied on server. I'm using XP and server is Windows 2003.
 

A:Access is denied, make sure disk is not full or write protected

Did you look at the share permissions or the NTFS permissions? You have to have read and write on both in order to be able to do it. I am assuming your server is running NTFS Hdd's?

The 2 tabs to look at for the folder is both Sharing and Security.

I have a computer that I want to shutdown remotely via command line (the shutdown -i), and if I have "password enable sharing" turned on I get access denied(5) but if that is turned off it works fine.
How can I get this working again?
I have read that I may need to create a user account with the same username and password of the account on this computer I wish to shutdown, but I have tried this and it does not work, plus having a extra account on either computer is kind of annoying,
isn't there a way I can do it without having the same user account on my two PCs? Maybe like just using the username and password of the remote computer directly without actually having that account created on my PC?

A:Remote shutdown Access Denied (5)

Hello,
You can alternatively add your matching credentials to the server or computer you are trying to shut down remotely and make sure that the user has sufficient local privileges to perform a shutdown. I checked the shutdown switches but I could not find a switch
that lets you enter alternate credentials for the shutdown.

Hi,
I'm having quite some troubles shutting down a Win 8.1 x64 computer remotely, using the shutdown command. 
I searched online for solutions and tried several things, mostly the solution [1] seems to boil down to adding the reg-key LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy=1
(i), adding an account on the machine to be shutdown, matching the credentials of the user on the machine shutting down (ii), adding "Everyone" to the "Force
shutdown from a remote system" entry via secpol.msc (iii).
I did (i) and (ii), while (iii) will not work for me since on my remote machine (the one shutting down) I'm logged
on with a user of the company's domain, while the machine to be shut down is not in the domain (and is not supposed to be). Also, the solution I'm looking for should work in different setups as well, thus in the final setup I will most likely be using a diffent
user in a different domain anyways.
Is there no way of simply deactivate all the security stuff and let shutdown do it's work? Security is really not a concern at all in my use case, it just has to work.
Thanks

This has been picking at my brain and is driving me nuts!

I have a script on my laptop under my account which is an Administrator account. I double click the .bat file and it shuts down my remote server without any issue.

When I go into another account on my laptop, which was an regular user account, changed to an Administrator account, I double click on the .bat file and CMD comes and goes quickly with the "Access Denied" message.

I cannot figure it out for the life of me. The script is shutting down a Windows Server 2008 R2 computer.

My simple script.

@echo off

shutdown -m \\192.168.0.8 -s -t 0 -fClick to expand...

tl;dr version:
Script to shut down server works on Account 1. Script gets "Access Denied" on Account 2.

Help?!
 

A:Shutdown batch file access denied

Account 2 needs to have administrative privileges on the remote computer. Basically meaning his username and password need to be the same on the local computer they are on and the remote computer. If memory serves me correctly it uses your credentials from the computer you are logged into to try and shutdown the remote computer.

Ive been trialling the new Diskeeper with the new Intelliwrite feature which replaces windows file system driver and write files contigously in order to prevent fragmentation ever occurring - thing is, im sure that file write times have been increased by this in SOME cases - while it might keep disk de-fragged i think writing of files to the disk takes longer as space has to be allocated first before the file can be written : in other words its defragging before it writes files instead of defragging on a schedule - i can definitley sense some slow down in file access... not all the time just occasionally... e.g. i just download three programs in chrome and normally as soon as they downloaded the files are accessible instantly, this time theyre was pauses between it becoming accessible and running it... just seemed "choppy" - also ive noticed that the laptop takes longer to shutdown since installing it and also it seems to be contasntly defragging...well a lot more than Perfect Disk or O&O

I think this feature is just slowing file writes down so can defrag on the fly? - i dunno if its good or not cos it SOUNDS good but in practice im not sure...

whats others thoughts about this?

It should say "will not run", because it didn't.

The only thing I can spot is my registration has my last name in upper case.

There are two possible reasons for getting this error message from the Windows Task Scheduler:1. You've entered the wrong password. The password you use must be the same one you use to login to Windows. If you do not have a login password then you do not need to enter any password.2.

A:system restore, access denied

where you originally using Encryption before restore?
If so what was Encrypting the folders? Windows or 3rd party software?
what could have happened is you used a Encryption Program to Encrypt you folders
then when you used XP's System Restore (which restores the registry to the date selected
and then amends the files on the drive according to the registry) and the restoration point
is BEFORE you installed and run the Encryption program... so the folders themselves are
Encrypted still but the restore point doesnt have the program installed then....
you need to supply a bit more information before any help can be given properly

did you use an Encryption Program? if so what was it?
Try re-installing it and decrypting the folders....

For the last ~3 wks, I have not been able to access my (WinXP Home SP3-running) computer's System Volume Information (SVI) folders which, as most of you know, are where the System Restore points are stored. (See my computer's specs at bottom of this post.) There are 2 SVI folders on my HDD; one is located in my Windows Directory (C:) and another in a data partition on my HDD (E:). I DO have the folders configured such that they show hidden files/folders and protected operating system files. I am able to visualize the SVI folders in both directories. However, when I hover over the folders, they both read "Folder is empty." And when I click on the folders, a message appears: "C[or E]:\System Volume Information is not accessible. Access is denied." I know that there are restore points stored there, though, because (A) I have manually created System Restore points without any problems, and (B) I can use a feature on CCleaner to view/delete old system restore points, and when I do this, there are many restore points visible there. I have checked System Restore tab in My Computer's Properties. The box for turning off system restore is unticked, and beside both C: and E:, it reads "Monitoring." I have tried to rectify the problem by turning off system restore through ticking the box which turns it off, clicking Apply, rebooting, etc., but I still have the same issue when I turn System Restore back on.

You are the curious one - like me What you describe sounds "normal", but I cannot explain how it seems to have changed for that folder in the last few weeks. There were some MS security updates last Tuesday... It takes more than view hidden files, etc. to see in there.I find the most efficient way (other methods may be offered) to view the SVI folder on a drive is to use the cacls command which you can read about here:http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...s.mspx?mfr=trueEnter the following command (or by typing the command in Start, Run) while having sufficient permissions (being the only user of a machine or logging in as administrator should be sufficient). cacls "C:\System Volume Information" /E /P Jose:F That should all be on one line, press Enter.

Then, I tried to use the Foxit Reader by double clicking a .pdf but nothing happened, the PDF didn't open. I then right-clicked the .pdf and went to "open with" but the Foxit was not listed among the programs, just Adobe, as if Foxit did't exist.

Hello All:
Everything seems to be running fine. I can get updates OK. But, I noticed that I have no retore points. I tried to create a restore point, but I keep getting an error message: Access Denied 0x80070005. Anyone know what's happening and how to fix it?TIA

I'm using the OP system of XP Home Edition and I've changed the parameters to allow me to view the System Volume Information folder but I am denied access to view / open that folder.
Any suggestions on what to change to grant me access?
Thanks

i recently used xp system restore after a virus attack caused windows not to start. xp started the system restore automatically after login, i had no choice. it then did something for a few seconds and locked up. i only had to go back to the last restore point to recover everything. i am virus free.

but now i can't access my encrypted files. i get "access denied" even tho i created the folders with my admin account.

xp has created a new admin account with the same name and password. i can see both accounts have a CA Root cerificate that is not trusted.

i tried adding my new user account by using the encrypted file properties to gain access, but xp reported "error in adding new user. error code 5.", which is a big help.

how can i get access to my encrypted folders/files again?
i hope somebody knows the answer, thanks.

I have windows 8, 32 bit & I'm trying to clear my print spooler, which I've done many times. I go to "run," type "cmd" & enter the command: "net stop spooler." When I execute the spooler command I get the above error message. I did a search on google & got a lot of hits but none of them were useful. What is going on & how do I solve this "system 5 error" problem?
Thanks for any help.

I am ready to pull my hair out here! I can't wait for help.

I am trying to use Heidi Eraser ver. 6.0.8.2273 to sanitize a small (80 GB HDD) secondary drive. I receive the following error message "Files in E:\System Volume Information did not have its cluster tips erased because of the following error: Access to the path 'E:\System Volume Information' is denied."

PC is a Dell studio XPS 8100 -- Dell - Studio XPS 8100 Desktop / Intel? Core™ i7 Processor / 8GB Memory / 1.5TB Hard Drive - SX8100-2777NBC) -- running Windows 7 Home SP1 with Webroot (anti-virus). The 80 GB drive is a second drive added to the system.

I am running Heidi Eraser from the Administrator account (full rights). I have System Restore turned off on this secondary HDD. I turned off Webroot. I formatted the drive through DOS, and I am still receiving this error message when trying to erase. Oh, and in Heidi Eraser I do have the option selected to... Erase Cluster Tips.

What am I missing please?

System volume information is owned by the user group "system" Even admins dont have rights to it. Only way I can think of is to take ownership of it (perhaps in DOS) from another OS or DVD.

That may make the HD unusable.
