IOG Dos file and unusal XP Pro date/time behavior

Q: IOG Dos file and unusal XP Pro date/time behavior

Hi,

I booted my computer yesterday and Windows XP Pro's date/time was misconfigured. Also on my desktop was an MS-DOS file named IOG. I doubled clicked on IOG and a DOS window opened up and closed real quick. Didn't have time to catch what exactly it was processing. I'm not sure if my computer is infected or not so I appreciate any help I can get. AVG Free didn't catch anything and neither did AVG Anti-spyware. Tried running Kaspersky Online Scanner but I keep getting an error message.

My HJT log:

Hello,
I've been invaded!!! The mouse cursor is quite irratic. When performing a single click on a form, it is sometimes interpreted as a double click. When dragging a form the form doesn't respond or it will respond to the drag sporadically. When attempting to highlight text, image, etc., the highlight doesn't happen or only a partial highlight will occur. It is very annoying which is what I'm sure is the mission of the designer of this bug, virus, trojan, whatever. Also, at the same time this invader changed the format of the system date/time form standard time to military and month/day/year to year/month/day. I've ran the AVG anti-virus program and AVG root toolkit - they've both came up without finding any foreigners. I've ran Spybot and it to came up empty-handed. The operating system on this computer is XP sp3.

Sincerely,
rascaal

A:Abnormal Mouse Cursor Behavior, Date/Time reformatted

System manufacturer and model?

FWIW: System problems such as have (so far) described...may occur for various reasons...malware may be among them, but let's try a few things.

First...I'd like you to run the chkdsk /r command. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system and let the command execute, the system will boot into XP when the command has completed.

Second...I'd like you to enter the BIOS and check the time/date reflected there and ensure that all settings are still as they should be.

Third...if your mouse still behaves erratically, try a different mouse.

Something I discovered tonight...let me explain by example:

I have two files in folder AAA. One is named BBB, with a creation date of 1-1-14. One is named CCC, with a creation date of 8-1-14.

If I delete BBB, and then rename CCC to BBB, then that file's creation date changes from 8-1-14 to 1-1-14, even though the content stays the same as when it was actually created on 8-1-14.

Is this normal? If so, I’ve never noticed before. Also, if it’s normal, what do you think the rationale is, and does this differ from XP? For my purposes this is a useful -- if unexpected -- behavior (I won’t go into *why* I like it unless someone asks).

Thanks.

Anybody else noticed that after the summer-time change, Win XP has changed the TIME STAMP on all files. I think this only happens on NTFS partitions, but the effect is that all backups held on non-NTFS partitions now appear to be an hour old. This is just STUPID, and can anybody tell me if this is intended, and if so what conceivable reason can there be?

better yet, can we do anything?

My XP Pro has recently stopped updating the modified date / time to reflect when I modify a file.

The problem relates to the application that updates the files and not the file themselves. E.g.:

MS Notepad, Word, Excel, Outlook, Microangelo, Photoshop, Winmerge - all update the Modified field as expecetd.

MS Wordpad, EditPlus, TopStyle, Notepad++, FastStone Image Viewer - all do *not* update the Modified field.

I tried ending all non-critical tasks, but problem persists.

The problem does not appear when running in Safe Mode.

I've used system restore to go back as far as I can but no fix there. I can't find any reference to the problem on the web.

Any suggestions very gratefully received.

Newbie here so I apologize if I am not doing something correctly or have posted this under the wrong category; fortunately though, my question is rather simple. I am only hoping that the answer is just as simplistic.
I am going through a court battle right now and over the past year I have saved numerous files to my hard drive which I am now going back through in trying to put the proper dates that they were made (most of them are audio files; but there are definitely files from every category) and for the most part, I am able to get all of the information that I needed just by right clicking on the file, scrolling down to "Properties" and then selecting the "Details" tab. Nevertheless, for some reason, a good 25-40% of them show a completely inaccurate date. So my question is: does anyone know of a failsafe/foolproof way of finding the correct date in question and on top of that, knowing whether or not that date is actually legitimate; whether that be with the use of some outside program, a command prompt, or some other shortcut? I'm all ears!
Thank you for your time,
Mike

First off you should not be touching anything with those files. If the lawyers and court asked for a copy of them. Burn them as is to a DVD and hand them over as the evidence they requested. Otherwise the judge can issue a Subpoena to have Leo's come to your house and take anything related to saving data to, including the computer.

"One more odd-ball question? if you click on the time in the bottom right hand corner of my office computer, it has the correct time and date. However, when I save new files and look at the date (or transfer to FTP), it says June 2099! I wouldn?t think of it being a huge problem except when I try and back-up files on my computer to CD, it won?t save these because it doesn?t recognize the date. I tried google searching the problem and couldn?t find anything. Ever heard of anything like this?"

Is there anyway I can add in a batch command on start up to setup the local date and time ?

To change the current timezone setting to, for example, the Central America Standard Time (UTC-06:00), the command would be

Once you have the command you need, simply wrap the command into a batch file then place the script into the Startup folder.

When using Windows Explorer, a directory listing can show a number of different columns of course but it appears the default is Date Modified .. which is fine. However, it doesn't show "seconds". The same appears to be the case for the command line output for "dir".
The only solution I've found so far is to put the directory path in Google Chrome - which is a bit of a pain but it does work. So the information *is there*.

How to get Windows Explorer to display the time with seconds?

Try this:

The Windows Live Mail *.eml files time stamp is getting changed to the current date when the file is selected in the Windows Explorer! I save backup copies of important E-mails to folders on the Hard Drive and then synchronize them with the same folders on other LAN Hard Drives for backup archives. When these E-mail files are selected or opened from the Windows Explorer in the Windows 7 OPS the Modified Date Time Stamp is changed to the current date automatically! This action creates a real problem when doing later synchronizations of all of the folders! The date will not be the original date of the E-mail and the original file will be over copied with the file with the newest date stamp. I stopped Indexing on the *.eml files and that stopped the time stamp change when overcopy synchronization, but if the file is selected during a viewing in Windows Explorer then the Time Stamp is updated to the current date again! A solution to this problem would be greatly appreciated if anybody knows of one. Thanks - - - Shorto

A:*.eml Time Stamp - Select File in Windows Explorer Changes the Modified Date

The Date and Timestamp changing issue in Windows 7 has a two part fix!
1. Disable the Indexing of the *.eml file type in the Indexing Options located by Clicking on "Control Panel" -  "Indexing Options" - Advanced Button - File Types Tab - scroll down to the .eml file type and uncheck the Box then click OK to finish, so
that the Email type of files won't be Indexed.
2. Delete the Registry Entry listed below, be sure to Export and Save the original Key so it could be Restored if something goes wrong!  \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PropertySystem\PropertyHandlers
 and Delete the .eml entry
 
That should fix the problem with the changing Date/Timestamp of Email Files. For more information read CarlS's WindowsSeven Fourm thread where I also have more input:

I apologize for posting to the "general" forum here - even though my issue concerns gmail, it may have something to do with file handling in Windows 7, so I'm shooting for the broader audience in this forum.

How do I save an attached file from my gmail account, such that the date and time stamp, once saved to my local computer, remains the same as that of the original file?

That's how I just always assumed it was being done, and yet with gmail, the files are saved to my local computer with their save date/time, not the date/time of the actual file.

This is just wrong! If I send a file to 15 people, I want each recipient to have a saved file with the same date/time - not 15 different times based on when they saved them.

What am I missing, to force gmail/Windows to preserve the original file date and time stamp?

BTW, I posted this question to a gmail user forum, and the only answer I got so far is unhelpful, and likely wrong, gobbledygook.

A:Saving gmail file attachments without changing their date/time stamp?

Hi,
I doubt that can happen
At best there might be a universal Date Created or Date Taken on all of the files.
The camera it's self would enter that info "if" the time and date were correctly set on the device.

Hey, this is my first post and since I'm at the end of my rope with this problem I'm looking for any help with this.I am a student that attends a school that incorporates a shared network drive that all students can access. Naturally, much pirated software, music and other media are shared over this, thus making it a breeding ground for malware. Apparently, someone uploaded a copy of Adobe CS3 and the keygen.exe contained a virus/worm/whatever that infects anything that connects to the drive. So, many students who didn't even download the files, much less even opened a folder contracted the virus on their external drives and thus, infected their home computers, as is the case with me.Long story short, as soon as I hooked up my infected drive to my computer, Norton alerted me that a virus had been detected and that an attempt to delete it had failed. I've scanned my system several times sense, and came up with nothing. The file that Norton referred me to I deleted manually and still, I'm left with a peculiar problem: my system clock is now set to today's date in 2005 and it won't let me change it to 2008. What's even weirder is that it allows me to set the clock to an earlier year, just not any year later than 2005. So far, this is the major issue associated with this virus.I've attached my hijackthis file so hopefully somebody can help me out.

A:Virus Won't Let Me Change My System Date To Later Than 2005 (i Pasted My Hijackthis File On The Page This Time)

Well, it looks like I solved the problem. Hopefully, this will help out anybody that's gone through the same ordeal.

After virus scan upon virus scan, I was about to give up and wipe my system clean when I decided to look over my HijackThis file once again. I noticed the line:

O23 - Service: 74747C66 - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\3FD790B2.EXE

This line struck me as odd, since it declared the owner as unknown and the .EXE file as a series of characters. I decided to do a little digging and came to find out that the .EXE file had been implemented at around the same time my computer started acting screwy. Not only that, but author was also listed as unknown so my suspicions were proven correct. This was the culprit and it was one tough S.O.B.

Upon further investigating, I also found out that the malware had established itself as a system service (as well as another malware with similar character appearances), meaning that it was executed every time the system started up. In order to delete these guys, I had to boot the computer in Safe Mode and search the registry. Once I found them, they were deleted. Just for grins and giggles, I searched every main folder in the registry several times, each returning results, meaning that the malware had replicated itself into several different folders. Each one was zapped and once I was done, I rebooted the computer in Normal Mode and you know what? System's clean and running like a top. (And it even displays th... Read more

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Thank You

I have a Date/Time field that I need converted to just a Time field.

It comes back with 2/11/12 0:00:00

I need just the 2/11/12

I thought about changing it to a text field but I think there will be an issue with the month because it does not bring back a 0 in from the months with only 1 digit.

This table that I am creating is being sent to a txt file and that is where I see the issue. It looks good in Access, but not the txt file.

Any suggestions?

I am looking to set up a macro or formula that basically inserts the current time when a cell is filled SO:

when a2:a100 is populated with any thing then the corresponding C cell will be populated with the time.

AND

when e2:e1000 is populated wiith anything then the corresponding D Cell will be populated.

Currently I am using this macro.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A6:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 4)
.Value = Time
.EntireColumn.AutoFit
End With
End If
End Sub

which works great for the A and C cells

but it does not work for the other one.. how do i add and modify this so all my needs are met.
I need another 2 sets of 2 macros accross the sheet for time entry.

I am furious at not knowing why my date/clock in Windows 7 keep changins its appearance. It is as if the files or settings for Windows change mysteriously back and forth and I don't like it one bit.

The issue pertains to this clock/date shown at the bottom right corner on the screen just beside the system tray.

Sometimes it tells me the clock and no date or anything else is shown.
Some hours later it changes mysteriously to show the clock and the date format I once set, so that I get to see the day of the week, the date in numeral and the month in letters, and finally showing the year.

Something appear to be horribly wrong in Windows and I have no hope fixing it.

Only hope here is if this issue is familiar to other people.

If I am in the wrong forum, please let me know.

About a month after I started using it, the Say the Time clock program I bought stopped launching the management menu when I right click the date/time field in the task tray (notification area).

Therefore, I can't use or edit the program.

Neither the touchpad nor the cordless mouse works.

Other than this problem, my computer works great. Every single item that's meant to be right clicked works for me.

Is there a way I can generate a log to show the software manufacturer (Provenio) that it's their problem and not mine?

I am a novice user but I can follow instructions.

However, I don't want to put my computer at risk if I make an entry error.

Or is it obvious that it's a software problem?

I've been using computers for 18 years and I've never had this problem until I bought this software and used it for about a month.

I just wanted a conclusive way of putting the ball back in the manufacturer's court.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Regards.

I open Event Viewer - "Admin View" to see what Errors/Warnings are there and in the column - Date and Time only the date is showing. Same goes for all the other views.
The "Time" element seems to have completely disappeared.

Any idea where its gone........... and more importantly, how to get it back?

Thanks

Problem solved - but - I don't know why.

Solution:- I changed the Date/Time format from UK to US, opened Event Viewer and it was as it should be. Date & Time showing.
I then changed format back to UK, opened Event Viewer and , as above, the Time was back up.

Help! I am using a Seagate Central 4TB NAS drive attached to my router via Ethernet. It has been working fine so far for all kinds of file activities. But whenever I modify a file in one of its folders, the creation date for the file also updates and is
changed to the same time as the new modified date.
Maybe relevant details:
I can move/copy folders to the drive and they maintain their created dates.
It happens for both a private user share on the NAS and for the Public share on it.
It happens for at least image files and text files.
I am able to edit files across two computers on the network just fine, the create date stays the same.
This happens from a new Windows 10 machine and Vista machine both.
I notice sometimes the date created seems to stay same until I access the file the next time.
I can't update the NAS firmware because of error.

If it could be a permissions problem, I have been unable to change it from:
Everyone: Special Permissions only
nobody (Unix Group\nobody): Special Permissions only
nogroup (Unix Group\nogroup): Special Permissions only
(Those were there automatically, they are not something I manually put there. I get "Access is denied" whenever try to add permissions or change ownership.)

I have a 4 year old computer that runs perfectly, except when I turn it off at night and then back on the next day, I loose a few hours on the time date at bottom of screen. I ajust each time I use it but the same thing happens each time I turn it off. Could it be the clock battery or ? My operating system is Windows XP Home
Thanks Lc
 

A:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.

Hi,

I am running XP Home SP3 on an Asus 1005HA netbook

Every time I boot up I get a message to say that either I can press F1 to enter setup to set date/time or press F2 to load default values

If I choose F1 and enter the correct date/time and press F10 to save and exit - XP then starts up normally but the next time I boot up, the same problem occurs.

[If I select F2, then XP loads normally]

What can I do to fix this?

Okay, this is a strange one. I have included all the troubleshooting steps I've tried, so please read through before making suggestions.

Last night out of the blue, after always working perfectly, my mouse pointer started to randomly freeze for a second or two. When it did move, it moved smoothly and normally; but every few seconds or so it would get stuck for a moment (you can check out what kind of mouse it is in my specs). The mouse wheel and buttons are fine, no problems at all; just the pointer is messing with me. The touchpad works perfectly as well.

It works perfectly after a reboot. But over time it starts to break down again. In fact, I left it alone overnight, and this morning the pointer would barely move at all.
I rebooted again, and noticed that at the blue "Restarting" screen the mouse pointer was instantly back to normal. But again, after reboot it would be fine at first but then start acting up, getting worse as time went on.

Troubleshooting I have already tried:
1. Replaced the mouse battery.
2. Removed the USB receiver and put it back in.
3. Uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, Windows installed generic HID-compliant driver.
4. Malware scan
5. Tried a different mouse

Oddly, after trying a different mouse and then switching back to the original, it worked fine for much longer before starting to break down again. At the time of this post, the pointer is sticking but not as badly, and taking longer to deteriorate.

Hi,
in this video Laura E. Hunter from Microsoft describes behavior analytics: https://youtu.be/hNZdboDvnuU?t=1251
She says that ATA will analyze the behavior in a domain for 21 days and declare this as normal behavior. After the 21 days ATA will report unusual user behavior based on the 21 days analysis.
I have two questions about this:
1. Can we see the progress of the analysis somewhere? I searched through the ATA-center but there is nothing. Is it possible to see it in some kind of logfile or the Mongo-DB?
2. We have started ATA with one DC. What happens if we add our other DCs later? Will the analysis recognize behavior from those, also when the 21 days are already over?
I did not find anything about this 21 days analys period in the documentation. I'm more than happy with a hint if I have overseen something there.
Thanks in advance

I don't why, but I keep getting this warning, W32time in the system logs The time service has not been able to synchronize the system time for 49152 seconds because none of the time providers has been able to provide a usable time stamp. The system clock is unsynchronized and when you click on the link for Microsoft, they are no help at all. I could type the long winded explaination but here's what they say in a nutshell - If the W32Time 36 message appears on a computer that is not a domain controller, such as a home computer, business workstation, or member server, no user action is required. By default, these systems do not provide the time to requesting clients and should be the only computers affected by this event. After connectivity or communication with the time source is restored, the computer will resume synchronizing with its source. All Microsoft is saying is don't worry it will fix itself.

I know, I can fix this problem two ways, I could click on Time and Date and Update the server - time.windows.com or in - DOS, I could type - Net Stop W32time and Net Start W32time and this would synchronize the time and everything would be back to normal again, or you would think so, but in 3 days I would get the same warning and I would have to reset the time again.
