[SOLVED] Suspect DNS Isue with Vista

Q: [SOLVED] Suspect DNS Isue with Vista

I have installed a wireless card onto my PC, the card sees the network tells me I have connection, but IE does not connect.

I have cleared DNS cache, repaired IP/TCP Winsock. And

IPCONFIG shows that I have no default gateway.

Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Suspect DNS Isue with Vista

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: [SOLVED] Suspect DNS Isue with Vista

Your Default Gateway is your Router. Unplug the power plug to the Modem and the Router. Plug the power into just the Modem (unless you have a modem/router combo) When all the lights come up, plug in the power to the Router (unless combo of course) Go to Start/Search and type inetcpl.cpl and press enter/Connections/LAN Settings. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked. Now go to Start/Search and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. Right click the Local Area connection/Properties scroll down to Internet Protocol IPV4 (TCP-IP)/Properties. Make sure Obtain an IP Address and DNS Server Address Automatically are both checked. Now go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the Command Prompt link in the Search Results and choose Run As Administrator. IN the Command Prompt type ipconfig /release and press enter. the IP Address changes to 0.0.0.0 Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew. Now type ipconfig /all. You should have a new IP address try it again. If you still cannot connect please include the text output of your ipconfig /all in your next post

Cant get internet connectivity. My NIS is working. Have a valid Ip but Wont connect in firefox or IE7. UNLESS i boot in safe mode. Tried wireless, local, and even my BB and all the same. Valid (but different IP) address and no online connectivity.
 

A:Vista connection isue

Most likely a 3rd party firewall (internet security) issue. If "NIS" is Norton Internet Security I'm guessing that you are right about it working. It's keeping you perfectly safe from the big bad internet.

I was trying to forward ports for some programs using a http://portforward.com guide.
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 10.0.0.138.Click to expand...


You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are root. Click the Ok button to log in to your router. Click to expand...

...it says, but 10.0.0.138 doesnt work, I did search a bit with google about it but found nothing certain.
The actuall question is: "How do I find my router's IP adress?[to get the router admin box]"

My router is a Lucent Technologies CELL-21A-BX-AR

I have Windows Vista, on a Dell Inspiron laptop. It is brand new as of July 2007. I have a dell aio photo printer. I installed my printer on my laptop, and it worked fine. But as soon as I shut my computer down for the night, and tried to print the next day, it refused to. So, during the day, I turned my computer off, as I would be away from it for a while, and when turning it on upon my return, it printed the paper I had needed several hours before. So, I tried re-installing the printer, and checking all the connections, and all the settings. Nothing seems to work. I have re-installed it 3x, and the only way I can get it to print, is to re-start the laptop, which takes forever. Is this a Vista problem? And if so, is there a fix? Thanks

My wife's laptop is acting crazy. It's been working fine, then the other night the screen starting blinking and became unreadable. It would just blink a ton and flash on and off. She took it in the next day to her work to the tech guys there and it worked fine. Today the same issue. I was able to get it to start in Safe Mode and it works just fine. Trying to start in regular mode it starts out just fine, then goes to blinking/flashing, etc.

Hello my name is Gringoyle

Let me start from the very begining, I was play Ever Quest 2 when my key board started acting up i found that it was my mouse, when my mouce was in movement the keyboard was inop so if was to use the (W,A,D,S) keys to navigate than use the mouce to move the cursor i would stop movment.

So I decided to test the mouce in safe mode, I and made a big mistake by using msconfig to do so. Well it started an endless loop of chrashing when windows would boot causing the loop to start over. I can however use F8 still which i did to to try and repair my system, it recommended that I use the recovery, that had failed. I than used the F8 last knowen good configuration option to start windows and I am running again, I than when to change the settings in msconfig i had made but i am unable to. When in msconfig under the general tab the "Selective Startup" is selected, under the boot tab the options are normal, safe mode is not selected. However if I select the Normal Startup option under the general tab the safe mode box becomes check under the boot tab and if I uncheck the safe boot box, the Selective Startup option is than selected again under the general tab.

And my dang mouce is still causing the keyboard to be inop when in use.

Thank for any advice you fellas can offer me,

I have a fixe pc with intel Q6600 4gb ram with vista 32bit running.
This pc is not mine, but of a friend of mine who asked me to repair it...so i dont know how this has been used.
The problems started with a bsoad after which i choose the latest good known config.

-Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 on Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 x86 (KB2974268)
-Update for Windows Vista (KB2998527)
 
In the details on the operative system it states that a service pack 2 update is possible, but i read that is good to make it when the system is clean and working well.
I suspect this pc being full of viruses, and right now im running a mbam scan just so see what it finds and is already at 19 after just 10 min scan..
 
So i would need some help to clean deeply and find out why it had a bsod, all before updating to service pack 2 e try to give stability to this system.

Was away for a few days.
 
On return Windows prompted me to install (though not the normal monthly that was done earlier in Feb) some updates including Microsoft Security Essential (MSE).
 
The update seems to have broken something.
 
Safe Mode symptoms:
1. Boots fine
2. unable to uninstall MSE (which I think is actually normal).
 
Normal mode Symptoms: 
1, System boots in normal mode, seems to have the high res drivers at login screen though more sluggish with "wait" mouse pointer circle that normal
2. After login in normal mode,  just get a black screen with white mouse pointer. Can manage to get task manager by using CTRL+ALT+DEL, and selecting it from the "logoff" menu, but not much else. The system seems to hang/waiting on starting a MSE/Anti malware service.
3. Started with diagnostic services only in MSCONFIG (using safe mode) normal mode gives errors that appear to be related to a profile service being unavailable). Just get the start button and trashcan but not much works.
 
I suspect MSE update has broken things, and because safe mode does not do runtime protection it boots okay.
 
No disabling that whilst safe mode did not help, and I was not able to uninstall MSE even with an RGY hack to allow the MS (un)installer service to work. Vista Repair, last good configuration, and system restore all no good,

Hello there.

I found your site when I was Googling re problem with my Windows host files.

I ran Spybot last week and it came up with 36 entries for redirected hosts and 1 for my windows security was disabled.

At the same time a problem occured with my Norton live update...alert starting LU1890 referring to live update and how some items had been directed into my Windows host file and providing a link to symantec but I was unable to connect to the web site via the link or google.

I snooped around on google( a little knowledge etc.) and opened my host file in C/Window in notebook and found just about every anti virus I have heard of in there eg

1.1.1.1avant.com

and so on for the other 25/30 listed

I now find when I looked for the hijackthis site in google ( since if someone here was kind enough to help I would probably have to run it) the google page opens but before I can read the page, it just closes back to my desktop.

Never had this sort of bother with this PC.

Any help appreciated.

ps nothing seems to be obviously wrong (slowing down, pop ups)at the moment.

pps Although I use IE, I have Firefox to browse and use forums etc.... as of 14.00 i cannot open firefox.

However the link pattern is typical mof the current round of spam that links to a blachole exploit kit and frequently ending up with a banking trojan that is designed to steal all your money, credit card info & passords to as many sites as they can
It wil also drop a tdss or zero access rtootkit as well
when you see the links, just delete the email
if outlook disables the links & places them in its junk folder, then that is good and shows how well Microsoft is doing in keeeping the spam filters up to date & how effective teh outlook junk filter can be, if working correctly

The wife's desktop computer booted up then suddenly the screen froze, nothing worked. She turned the computer off, then on and no boot up no bios screen, zip. Tried twice, waiting several minutes between tries. If it matters, we always turn the computer on and off by switching the main power cord on/off, never using the front panel button. The front panel button was always steady green but now is flashing amber. Further checking, none of the fans are turning. This makes me think the supply died.

I've been trouble shooting my computer's freeze-ups for a couple weeks and I can't find any reason. I restored my computer three weeks ago and some time after downloading SP2 and all the other MS updates, it started.

Problem: Computer will freeze completely. No keyboard/mouse/sound. I can only force a reset with the power button. Sometimes it will freeze within 10 seconds of XP finishing it's startup. Freezes can be random. Went 2 days without one, then six today.

I know the following will cause it to freeze:
1. Trying to upload a .doc file to google docs.
2. Trying to open a .doc file in MS Works.
3. Trying to upload a 1.8 MB jpeg as a gmail attachment. Uploading a 36kb jpeg and 1.4 MB .doc file were fine.

What I've done:
1. Ran every spyware/adware/virus scan I could.
2. Ran two registry check/cleaner utilities.
3. Disabled all extraneous stuff in msconfig.
4. Defragmented hard drive.
5. Download Seatools and did all tests on hard drive - all results passed.
6. Downloaded a Microsoft dos-based memory tester. No problems found.
7. Removed video card. Just using integrated video card now. Didn't affect problem.
8. Used System Restore.
9. Ran computer in Safe Mode...still freezes.

Computer:
HP Pavilion a610n, AMD Athlon 3000+ 2.1 GHz, 1.0gb Ram.

Even though the test utilities said the hard disk and memory are fine, I suspect it could still be a hardware failure with one or the other. Could it possibly be the processor?

Hello Techguy forums,

After running my computer with no qualms for a year on XP, I made a horribly stupid mistake and downloaded a very suspect file and opened it without thinking, call it my watershed moron moment in my computer history (I'm almost always very good about this, rarely ever get viruses). But this guy knocked my computer out something crazy! First the computer froze, "uh oh" I thought.

Then I tried to boot it back up ... nada. Before it even gets to the little loading screen with those green squares crossing the screen and the XP logo, it immediately restarts itself.

Now I had a spare copy of Windows from a friend that I used to reinstall Windows XP onto the machine. Problem is, I haven't backed up my programs or applications or games or whatever on the other instance. The documents I can get, that's not a problem. But I left the other copy of windows on my machine (so I have two instances of XP on here, only one that I can get on, but I can still access those files on the other instance). I'd like to only need one instance of Windows on here, as I feel it complicates the hell out of my file structure to have these two instances.

So, Techguy, I need to find out how to remove this virus off of my first instance of Windows if at all possible. Before you suggest anything, let me inform you that I'm typing this post on my laptop, not the desktop that has the problem I've been talking about. My desktop is not currently run... Read more

Hello all,
I've found this forum after reading GianMarco thread. He apparently had the same problem as i do. For the last two months or so, my server would reject my IP when I tried to send emails saying that I had been blacklisted (spamcop site). Last week I had my port 25 blocked by my ISP. It is open now. I had BitDefender Internet Security installed, and the scans never detected anything. I also ran Kasperksy and Panda online scanners. Afterwards I installed RUBotted utility by Trend Micro, and eventually it would show an alert saying that some malicious software was trying to access my PC remotely. I then uninstalled BitDefender and Installed Trend Micro trial which i have running now. Today ther firewall showed that svchost.exe was suspect and was trying to access port 25. I blocked access and found this forum.
Following the first step i already ran dss.exe with this result:

Hello,

Sorry in advance for asking what you've seen a few hundred times I gathered. I dug around through the other NTLDR missing threads and the "How to Repair the Master Boot Record" links provided but didn't see any with this particular issue...

It happened the usual way - removing unwanted (malware-type) programs Conduit and SweetIM toolbar from windows control panel. When the computer rebooted, the NTLDR is missing, CTRL/ALT/DEL to restart error appeared. Multiple reboots and attempts to discern any possible fix in bios resulted in same.

Somehow we lost track of our XP CD that we purchased for this computer as it didn't come with one new - Dell laptop Inspiron e1705. It did have all updates and most current service packs if that helps. From researching this issue in this forum and around the web it appears that the XP CD is the way to fix it (other than another method of installing something called bcupdate2 or similar but I was very hesitant to try that).

I do however have a Windows 7 Upgrade CD... I attempted to boot from it, got right into the menu, and promptly exited out of it for fear of making things worse without guidance or instruction.

Can I fix this NTLDR error by upgrading to Windows 7 without ending up having to reformat the whole drive?

A:[SOLVED] Usual suspect: NTLDR missing, but no XP CD?

Addendum: re: the bcupdate2 "fix" I mentioned above that I was reading about here: NTLDR is missing & No hard disk drives - Microsoft Community

I also found in that MS contributor's XP skydrive that he shares for tech help (https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6a7e7...9CAB1D6F39!311) that he also shares a file called XP_REC_CON.ISO which according to multiple links is a recovery console CD in general. Is this my solution for the missing NTLDR?

Addendum 2: Almost forgot. I also downloaded and attempted to run the NTLDR fix on Download Hiren?s BootCD 15.2 | HBCD Fan & Discussion Platform but I received other errors and could not run it... I can duplicate this if you need the exact error.

Hey guys,

My girl friend is using a Dell Inspiron N4010 and of late, her touchpad keeps crashing off and on... I have tried reinstalling the drivers a few times now, but that does not seem to solve the problem...

The occurrences seem pretty random, hence I suspect there might be some kind of malware

Request you guys to see if there is anything bad... If it's not software then I can start looking at it from a hardware angle

Thanks a ton in advance... Oh and below are the logs

Hi, The Prambler.

I'm not seeing anything in these logs to suggest infection is the cause of the issue.

Let's run a couple more tools to help ensure there's nothing lurking.

Download TDSSKiller.exe to your desktop
http://support.kaspersky.com/downloa...tdsskiller.exe
Execute TDSSKiller.exe by doubleclicking on it.
Press Start Scan
If Malicious objects are found, select Skip by changing the default Cure selection at the upper right
Once complete, a log will be produced at the root drive which is typically C:\
For example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.8.15.0_date_time_log.txt
Attach that log, please.

Next...
Please download aswMBR.exe and save it to your desktop.
http://public.avast.com/~gmerek/aswMBR.exe

Double click aswMBR.exe to start the tool. (Vista/Windows 7 users - right click to run as administrator)

Allow it to download the definitions from the internet.

Click Scan

* Upon completion of the scan, click Save log and save it to your desktop, and post that log in your next reply for review. Note - do NOT attempt any Fix yet.
* You will also notice another file created on the desktop named MBR.dat. Right click that file and select Send To>Compressed (zipped) file. Attach that zipped file in your next reply as well.

I read an earlier post by Sharkman, stating that he thought multiple svchost files may be slowing his system down. I have 5 identical Dell Optiplex systems running XP SP 2, and 3 out of 5 are running fine. The other two are at my front desk, which sees more internet use (uh oh) and runs hardware like AIO faxes, scanners, etc with individual software drivers on them.

Greetings!

One of my user's PC's appears to have a Vundo infection. Another tech tried to get rid of it, but I've seen this thing before and it's quite nasty so I wanted to be sure it's completely gone.

When the user logs into the machine she gets a couple error messages that refer to awtsp.dll and awvvw.dll. The error messages state that these two processes can't run. When I log into her machine, I do not get the error messages. I booted into Safe Mode and went to each profile on the machine and deleted everything out of the Local Settings\temp directories. I thought this would kill it, but when she logs in, she still gets the references to the .dll's I mentioned.

A quick Google search identifies them as Vundo problems, so I came here to see if you can help me.

1.) I checked the Add/Remove programs list and none of the ones mentioned in your 5-Step pre-post instructions were listed.
2.) Rogue/Suspect search revealed nothing.
3.) Here's the log from the Panda Online Scan:

Any ideas on what I can try to fix problem? I'm reasonably computer savvy but was in my heyday in the 70's working on mainframe computers that required water cooling (I'm not kidding) and took up half a city block (I'm kidding).

My computer froze yesterday afternoon. Turning it on again, there was no display to the monitor. Tried a different monitor, it still did not work.

I suspect that it is the video card that is bad, but before I spend the money to get a new one (I have no replacements to test), I want to run it by some people that actually know what they are doing.

I had my computer set to go to stop at a boot screen where I can either press F1 to continue loading Windows XP or ESC to go to controls for the BIOS. My logic for thinking that it is the video card is this: When I turn on the computer, I can press CAPS/NUM/SCROLL LOCK buttons, and the appropriate light on the keyboard will toggle on/off. However, when I hit F1, the C/N/S Lock lights on the keyboard will essentially freeze for around 30 second with button presses doing nothing to change them, which I presume is while the windows loading process continues. After some amount of time, I can change the light again, which I'm assuming is once the computer has reached the Windows XP log in screen.

I really do not know in what ways a Motherboard can go bad, and I don't know if a bad motherboard would still allow me to toggle the light or open the DVD tray, or if hitting the F1 button would cause some change in behavior. I just really want to know if it is the video card or not before I go and buy one; it's not too expensive since it is an old computer with only a PCI Express 1.0 x16 slot.

Yesterday I did a 3.96 MB upgrade to the Aluria " Spyware Eliminator" program. Subsequently, I ran "Ad-Aware" and it found five (5) "threats" associated with Aluria. These were never found before in my weekly maintenance runs. I removed them, of course, but this morning I found many settings had been "messed with." Fortunately, there was a system Restore Point available prior to the Aluria download and installation, so I am running satisfactorily now.

Question: Is Aluria's "Spyware Eliminator" known to install adware/spyware?
