Preferred Solution: real struggling

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.)

A: real struggling

thanks to all - can I leave this for now - I think I may be on the way to resolving the problem without making demands on your time

My university requires Cisco Clean Access Agent, and today the program decided I needed to update Real Player and Quicktime.

The thing is I started this computer from a clean install (DBAN, the whole nine yards), and never installed either program. I did, however install Real and Quicktime Alternative.

The tech support people here looked at my registry (which is scary in and of itself), and said there were traces of the programs there.

A:Does Real alternative create Real Player registry entries?

For the codecs and file associations.

Hi,
 
First, I'm not sure if this kind of discussion is allowed here, so, I'm not sure if I have the right to ask this but if this topic was to be closed, I would like to be informed about where is the right place to post this.
 
But I wanted to question what are the real threats presented to XP so people "MUST" upgrade as I see many people say. They say it's an obsolete OS (although many applications and plugins still install just fine) and incredibly unsecure.
 
So, let's say that the user it's not a total beginner on computers (would happily click on the "get your prize" ads and read fake bank emails and get scared) nor a total expert (works with security in an IT sector of a company and already seen enough to be scared of security holes).
It's just a guy who knows how to keep an antivirus updated and to enter only known major sites (facebook, outlook.com, google websites, netflix, amazon, etc.) and not to download software from blogs, and rarely reads email, using social networks to communicate instead.
 
What kind of threat is this user really exposed to? Like, in detail, what security hole it is and what does it do to the PC, that should urge this user so much to upgrade and get away from XP, a known extremely stable OS?
 
Really makes me curious to see people recomend so passionately to upgrade just because of the EOL of the OS.

When I boot up I am getting a window with the message ' There is a problem starting C:\Program Files (x86)\Conduit\CT3309350\plugins\TBVerifier.dll How can I stop this happening?
 

A:Struggling

Run the following and use Clean up button, does issue stop?

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ and save to your Desktop.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
Click on the Scan button.
AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
When it's done you'll see: Pending: Uncheck any elements you don't want removed.
Now click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
Look over the log especially under Files/Folders for any program you want to save.
If there's a program you want to save, just uncheck it from AdwCleaner.
If you're not sure, post the log for review.
If you're ready to clean it all up.....click the Clean button.
After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
Items that are deleted are moved to the Quarantine Folder: C:\AdwCleaner\Quarantine
To restore an item that has been deleted (if necessary):
Go to Tools > Quarantine Manager > check what you want restored > now click on Restore.

I am not sure whether I chose the right forum for this topic, as it's not only one game but morelike all processes are affected. When I am playing any game with like, say, 90 fps, it certainly does not feel like 90 fps like it used to feel before the problem. It feels lots of less, choppy, slow and especially when I use mouse to turn and to look around. This same problem comes with not only this game, but other programs and games aswell. Just a simple task like watching a movie from my computer, usually when the camera moves, it feels like the pc is giving some kind of lag. I must say, I did re-install my windows when I noticed the problem but there was no significant change.... So I deduce it must be a hardware problem. I hope you understand something from my explanation

Oh. And I check the temperature on graphics card. It seems to be ok, around 60 degrees? So it could not be due to overheating I guess.

Could it be that the card is broken? May the monitor be faulty? If, how can I get this confirmed?

For the reference my specs are

Intel Core 2 DUO CPU E8500 @ 3.16 Ghz P5Q Deluxe
RAM 4 GB
ATI RADEON HD 4800-series
Windows 7 32-bit

I am very frustrated by the situation, and any help would be highly appreciated
I've once taken my pc for repair but they couldn't fix it.

The fan on the Power Supply keeps going on and off. It spins for about 1 second then turns off then turns on. Sometimes the fan spins for more than 1 second and it makes a weird squeaky noise. I haven't cleaned my PC properly in months... I used a hair dryer to blow away the dust but problem is still occurring. Should I open up the PSU and clean it further... or is it time for a new PSU?
 

A:PSU fan struggling

A ahir dryer probably would not provide the appropriate air pressure to do a good job, I suggest trying to clean it with a can of compressed air. These can be picked up for about $3 at walmart, kMart, just about any store that sells electronics. Alswo a cleaning about every two weeks would be a better scheme. I take 5 computers out to my work shop at least every two weeks for a good dust removal. But then I have a small compressor with an air nozzle and turn the pressure down to about 20 PSI.

Hi, names Zero, new to the forums. but figured it would be a good place for me. anyways onto my problem.

I've been having this issue for about a week now. My audio cuts in and out while streaming on youtube. or other streaming sites, yet on my computer i can listen to music/vids for hours and it wont skip. within a 3 minute vid on youtube or such the audio will cut out for 1-4 seconds. every minute or so. And I know it doesnt have anything to do with my net speed. im on a 10 meg cable connection. and even with the video fully loaded it will do it. I'm no.. novice around computers. but this is one issue that I cant seem to solve on my own.

List of things tried.
Updating audio drivers.
Uninstalling audio drivers. reinstalling, trying without updating first, then reupdating
Updating adobe flash player.
Uninstalling/trying without adobe flash player (Shocked it let me play videos without adobe flash >.>)
Installing older version of adobe flash player.

Tried on both Firefox and Internet explorer. same results with the cutting of audio. so dont think its as simple as bad version of explorers. running latest version of FF. old version of IE. tried on a fresh install of google chrome.

My computer specs.
Windows Xp media edition Service pack 3
Nvidia geforce 9600 gt graphs card.
dual core 2 proc.
3 gigs of ram (Initially four but windows xp wont recognize more then 3)

Soo can anyone help me out here?

Hi there,

Struggling to get Certificates to work on Win8 for https login to my NAS.
With https enabled on NAS I keep getting the Red https splash security page on both IE and Chrome.

Followed the instructions to generate/edit the Certificate from the NAS (produces new cert timestamp of Feb 2016).
Instructions in NAS docs say I should import this and allow the manager to automatically choose the appropriate certificate folder.
This I do and it puts the certificate into the "Intermediate Certification Authorities" folder by default.

Contacted the NAS company and they don't know why it won't work, as I have followed their documented instructions.

Any help appreciated.

I have a Dell Latitute D600 and everything was working fine. Well I started to get the blue screen of death every so often so I ran a chkdsk repair. I guess it found some errors and corrected them. Anyway, now my computer takes at least twice as long to boot. Anyone have any suggestions?

A:XP struggling to boot

First off try going to Start -> Run -> msconfig
Then go to the Startup tab and start unchecking programs that you don't want starting when your PC does. Be sure you know what you're unchecking first though. The name and manufacturer can give some clues, or googling them will tell you what they are. Unchecking all of the unwanted/unnecessary programs should vastly improve your boot time.

Hello, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Background I have been using VS Revo Pro to uninstall a number of unwanted programs, and in the process noticed that saving of neither a registry backup nor a system restore point was happening.

I contacted VS Revo, and it was suggested that the problem could lay with the permissions settings. The picture taken of the relative properties seems to show that full permissions are granted. Am I perhaps wrong?

The advice about permissions in the Windows 7 system really confuses me, when it talks of objects in editing permissions too. I cannot grasp what the objects wold be in a case like mine, if indeed they are relevant.

Hi there,

I've tried a lot of different methods in order to install 3.5. All have failed so far. I'm really hoping that somebody in the know will be able to help me with this.

First of all, I was running 3.5 fine as I could run programs that use it fine previously. This was on Windows 8.1 64bit before. I changed my hardware, specifically the cpu, motherboard and gpu. Reinstalled Windows and then started to reinstall everything else. As soon as I tried to reinstall 3.5, I was greeted by a message saying I wasn't connected to the internet. Error: 0x800F0906.

I thought this was strange so I decided to google it. Turns out that this isn't a common problem and I did actually find some solutions from this message board that worked for some people. More specifically I tried to install it offline via my installation disc using the command line:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /Limit

This did not work. I received this after running the command:

- http://rl.webtracer.cc/-/?bayzm
- Hosts: 1159680172 auto.search.msn.com
- C:\WINNT\stsheets.dat

The antivirus programs (TrendMicro included) don't state any virus neither malware. The Lavasoft Ad-Aware also can't see anything wrong.
I tried to delete the malware in save mode (maybe this is called differently - I'm running polish version of Win2000) and clean the register. But then the computer during normal start reloads a few times and finally everything is back again.

And here is the contents of result.txt after having analyzed HiJackThis.log by KRC HijackThis Analyzer: (SMBFBE.EXE is the OfficeScan watchdog and ToDo.txt is my notepad file opened during system start)

A:After five days of struggling with bayzm, please help

This one is tricky. We are after a .sys file useally located in the drivers folder that holds this hijack in place. Once located...we can delete it...then the hijackthis entrys..and it should stick. Until you deal with that file..the hijacker will put it's entrys back. We are going to try 2 tools.

Please download Atribune's Find batch from here:
http://www.atribune.org/downloads/find.zip
Unzip it to the desktop and run Find.bat. This should create a file in the
same folder called report.txt. Please post the entire text of this file
here for me.



Please empty any Quarantine folder in your antivirus, empty your recycle bin and purge/delete all recovery items in the spybot program if you use it?before running this tool.

Download this virus checker and tool from eScan Mwav.exe (Use Link 3)

1. Save it to a folder.
2. Reboot into safe mode
3. Double click the Mwav.exe file.(This is a stand alone tool and NOT just a virus checker......so it won't install anything)
4. Select all local drives, scan all files, press SCAN and when it is completed, anything found will be displayed in the lower pane.
5. In the Virus Log Information Pane (Bottom Window)
Left click and Highlight all the info in the Lower pane--- Use "CTRL C" on your Keyboard to copy all found in the lower pane and save it to a notepad file. DO NOT post the log from the ?View Log? button as that log does NOT contain the info we are after.

Hi there,

I'd like to start by saying thanks to anyone who can help. I've been trying to remove this virus for a few days now with little success.

Please bear this in mind: The virus actually took control of my computer and I restored it. The logs that I share FIRST are taken from before the original time.

Also, I have no GMER logs. Originally the laptop crashed before it had finished and I never managed to recover before I restored (system restore). I now can't open/copy or do anything with GMER.exe without admin permissions. Funny thing is I have admin permissions but i won't let me do anything with the file.

AVG 2011 Free picked up the virus and it claimed to successfully remove it although it needed to reboot. For some reason explorer.exe and itunes.exe seemed to be corrupted and were being treated as infected files.

OS: Vista Home Premium x32

This is what happens when you log in:
1. "WMIServi Application stopped working and was closed"
2. Every executable that isn't part of windows is blocked by the firewall.
3. Acer eNet Management tells me to "Check the status of the Acer eNet service"

When browsing the internet sometimes searches redirect to famoussearchsystem.com. Also, I left the laptop on all day and came back to see it had opened 16 windows on the same page (famoussearchsystem.com).

Using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware I found a number of corrupted files but the same happened as with AVG Free. It informs me to reboot but a... Read more

Hi all, first post here!

I have recently bought a new quad PC and installed Vista Ultimate x64 on it. It installed fine, I activated it and started to get the updates through, after a few hours they were all installed successfully.

However, last night the Vista SP1 update appeared and I am a bit stuck! It says it is downloading but just stays on 0% for HOURS! Then, all of a sudden last night it climbled to 94%, stopped and I got an error from Windows saying the update has stopped working. I ran it again over night and got up this morning and it looked like it had finally downloaded as it was in the install process, asking me to press Next etc. I left it running but when I returned it said it had failed.

Now when I try to run it again, it seems to be stuck on 0% again. I have tried turning the firewall off but nothing happens.

Any ideas? Can it be downloaded manually and installed from somewhere else? Has anyone else had this problem?

Cheers
Tim

A:No Error but struggling to install SP1

Hello Geordie,

Welcome to the forum

Have a look here;
Download details: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone for x64-based Systems (KB936330)

Make sure that you have all the latest drivers and Bios before installing.

I hope this helps.

Hi I'm new here so if anythings unclear or not stated please ask and i'll try and explain better.

I've been having a problem with the sound on my laptop, when im doing nothing else at all it ok (most of the time) but when i do anything, even as little as to minimise a window the sound cuts in and out, its like its stuttering. sounds like my system was struggling to cope.

So i did everything i could think of, cleaned out my hard drive, defragged, run anti-virus/spyware software. But it's no better - i have no idea whats causing it now. Ive been trying to understand all the processes and CPU usage in the task manager to see whats goin on but ive been largely unsuccessful.

Im running a Philips freevents laptop, 2GB ram, 100GB hard drive (now 40% empty after a hefty clean out!) , WIN XP

PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi all, Just bought my new Acer E5-737G-525G, it's ani5-6200u core, with 8gb of ram, and a 940M card, a tidy piece of kit that shouldn't in theory be subject to any system lag or slowdowns. However, this is the SECOND laptop i recieved after the other one went back due to sluggish initial performance and me assuming that this was due to a drive issue. However, it seems like this one is having the same sort of issues. Consistent spiking for long periods to 100% HDD utilization and it takes an age to start up and the icons "page" in after you've started Windows. Can't say im super satisfied with the performance. I am not sure what i should do, if this is a reach out to Acer affair or just fix it myself.  Both RAM and CPU are hardly being maxed if at all, whilst the drive is usually at 100%ish and i can see visible lag on my performance as a result. Please help! I dont wanna have to buy an SSD quite yet lol

A:Brand New E5 Struggling with 100% HDD Utilization

Check in task manager in the "Disk" column. What is causing the 100% disk usage? is it windows defender? If it is, then get rid of it - Turn it off. If its MacAfee, GET RID OF THAT ABSOLUTE PEICE OF JUNK I believe your laptop has a Western Digital WD10JPVX Hard drive, just like my laptop had. Oh, waht a horror McAfee was to that poor hard drive.

Hi,
 
A couple of days ago I suddenly found my AV disabled and my web traffic being redirected, following some playing around I managed to install Symantec End Point protection, which Ran, said I had sirefef and all seemed well. But I still had odd options for Windows Defender & MEP Etc.
 
I found a guide on here by Gringo which I followed, which seemed to do the Job.
 
But now I am left with one final problem
 
Windows update refuses to install KB2813170 & KB2676562 From April and May Respectively.
 
I think I have missed a step out or not ran a particular tool. I am wondering have I missed something.
 
 
Look forward to your help

That's not a stupid question. If you completely wipe the disk, then yes, it will take everything away. The disk will be essentially a blank disk with no data, OS, etc. left on it. If you don't want to lose any data from the disk, then you would need to copy the data over to another disk before wiping it. If you want a bootable copy of the disk, then you would need to clone it to another disk before wiping (Macrium Reflect Free is an excellent program for cloning).

I'll keep it brief!
I've recently realised that I don't get the 'Run as Admin' option on any program that I right click on.
All I get is 'Run as ...', which when clicked on, opens a Run As box into which I type Administrator ......................... but that does nothing.
I've also discovered that I can't do a 'system restore'.
I opened up a thread in your Windows XP forum (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/596139/i-cant-run-as-admin-or-do-a-system-restore/) and have now been advised by LOUIS, one of your mods, to start a new thread here.
The reason being that, apart from my initial two problems, I am currently unable to download programmes from the web.
I was having issues with Avast, recently installed as advised, interfering with my emails. I then uninstalled Avast, only to find I couldn't install anything else due to my downloading problems.
I've just installed an AV prog after downloading it from a laptop onto a flash drive and then putting it onto this PC.
When trying to download a prog, a box appears asking me whether I'd like to save the file or cancel. As soon as I click on 'save file' the programme box disappears!
I'm sorry to be a pain, but my problems are increasing at an alarming rate!
Oh, I also get random reboots ....................... and I mean random! None for weeks, then four in one evening!
Please help me if you can.
 
Thanks in advance,
