Preferred Solution: HJT Log - Shared Family Computer

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.)

I have three computers all Win 7 Home Premium and sharing (Homegroup). Side not I also had them sharing with out Homegroup and still same issue. Also This occurs regardless if PC3 is connected via wire or wireless. Additional notes AV was also disable to rule out. That is the only thing running on PC3 and nothing is running background wise on PC1 or PC2.

PC1 can easily view contents of Shared PC2 instantly.

PC2 can easily view contents of Shared PC1 instantly.

PC3 can easily view contents of Shared PC1 & PC2 instantly.

PC1 & PC2 can not view contents of Shared PC3 instantly; it takes approximately 35 seconds to view contents of main shared folder and same for each additional sub-folder. Also if copying a file initially it takes awhile before it starts and then stars off slow around 585KB/s copying over from PC1 or PC2 to PC3 before it jumps up to around 10MB/s+. However if I copy the same file from PC3 to PC1 or PC2 no speed issues what so ever. Speeds actually get well up into 70MB/s.

Any thoughts?

A:Clicking on Shared Computer is very slow to view shared contents.

Set all your pc's as in this pdf. File Sharing Settings.pdf

Hey guys, Im on the downstairs family computer, which is heavily infected. My sister downloaded some photo editing software, and everything went downhill from there. Lots of Youtube to MP3 toolbar stuff is running in the background and is a toolbar in firefox and IE. Lots of adware, redirects, etc are present, but only seem to exist in her account (Im using my account, doesn't have as many problems). Also, the typing seems to be flipping out. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. Right now the shift key isnt working, i have to use caps lock. I ran some scans with MBAM and it found a ton of stuff, but then they all seem to be back once I rebooted. This computer is running Windows XP Media Center edition.

I'm staying with my aunt who has a Compaq running Windows XP, and it has been running well as the family computer up until this morning. They left it on when they left for vacation a few days ago, and I noticed that it kept rebooting, getting to the log-in screen, and rebooting again. I tried to troubleshoot, pulling the computer out of it's recess in the desk to give it some air flow, then I tried to log in to do a system restore, and it crashed about 10 seconds after log-in. I then tried starting in Safe Mode, and managed to boot up some spyware software and start a scan until it crashed halfway through. I let the computer sit for a half hour or so, and tried again with the same result. This is their only computer; I'm very worried that there is something severely wrong with the computer, and I know they have files and saved games that they need. I'm wondering if it's some basic internal issue or if there's potentially a virus. My computer on the network has been fine, with no viruses or spyware. Any help greatly appreciated.

A:Family Computer Crashes Soon After Start-up

Can you boot onto Safe Mode? (F8 when you start the computer) If so try using "Last Known Good Configuration". If it will not go back to before the problem started, start the computer in Safe Mode with Network support. This will allow you to update and run your antivirus and antspyware programs

Computer has been slow, but the main problem is a blue screen coming up and saying if this ever happens again..blah blah. Second off, while following the 'If your computers running slow...' Thread and doing what it says i was doing the windows vista system error check thing and it said quote "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log " Just wondering if their is anything i can do about that.
Otherwise, this is the family computer and I was just wondering how to stop that blue screen from comming up and any other problems that are in this computer. Thanks for your help ahead of time.

I am setting up a new laptop for my young son. I have created two user accounts. His is standard and mine is administrator. I go and set up family safety settings, but when I log out of my account and log into his at a time where he is supposed to be blocked there is no effect. Why is this? Do I have to pay that 50 cent thing for his Microsoft account? This makes no sense.

Couldn't use Ctrl/Alt/delete. - She tried to restart by hard booting- after restart, desktop was gone, no program files were present- restarted trying to boot in safe mode and restarted with "last known good boot??"- although we previously had malwarebytes and spyware terminator, she could not see them, so she redownloaded both, ran them, and deleted what they wanted to delete.Then called me to try and fix it!

Dear Techguys,

Please can a specialist techguy help me remove a stubborn infection from the family computer?

We have remnants of the snapdo malware virus as well as the spigot virus that I just canot seem to rid from our family's computer;

I've run malwarebytes, remove the infection and so on, but when I later re-run malwarebytes there STILL are 5 objects that popup again on the next scan.

Here is the info on my system:

I attach the log on the FIVE snapdo/spigot items that, accoording to malwarebytes, are on our family computer........

One Extra question: How can I prevent reinfection?

We are becoming frightened by the way these hideus things seem to infect our family laptop without warning or us knowingly doing anything to cause it.
Thanking you in anticipation.

Hi,
I've got a family of downloading fanatics. Many times children don't ask and just download things that may be of detriment. I've searched for solutions but have found none. My computer is barely running and I need to know if there is something wrong with it. I have done spybot and Avg scans and they come up with all kinds of trackers and what not but it seems that there is something more to this problem. I've had some mysterious documentviewer pop up in my taskbar over the last few days and it doesn't go away and there is also a Microsoft.net error box that keeps showing up as well. I did find a site that said that the problem might be related to to my all-in-one printer and I uninstalled that but the problem persists. Could it be the memory is pretty full? How can I check that? Step by step instructions please and could you please look at my HJT log.

Thanks,

A:Has my family computer reached capacity?

Hi,

You have Norton AntiVirus program running and you also have another antivirus

AVG 8.0 running- that is not doable....it can cause all kinds of system issues like you are having...one main symptom is a crawling machine, barely able to start up....

You Also have SpyBot's Tea Timer running....

This feature prevents changes you need to make to the computer from being made....so it must be turned OFF at least temporarily, while you are doing the steps below, if you do them....

Here are directions to turn off protective programs, while you need to run tools, or make changes, in cases like yours now

Scroll down till you see this, it appears in Post#3 at this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114351.html

SPYBOT TEATIMER.....and turn that off for now, you can turn it back on afterward.

If your computer came with the trial version of Norton A/V, and it expired or you are not sure, you are probably not subscribed to it any more (means paying for the Updates by the year).... This is usually what we see in cases like this.

I'm going to give you the directions page at Symantec (maker of Norton programs) and let you read them and then do them if you are removing Norton A/V

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

They have a tool called Norton Removal tool that you should use, after you run the UNinstaller for each Symantec item in your Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel....

Hello,

My new problem comes with the family computer in our house. It is rarely used these days with everyone jumping on their laptops instead but when we do go to use it we are reminded of how PAINFULLY SLOW it is. I've got a feeling that it's riddled with viruses, so I'd like to clean up the system for good if possible. Sometimes scans bring back nothing but other times (like today) a scan with AVG 9.0 alerted me to instances of the infection;
"Trojan horse Dropper.Generic4.CJUY" in 4 different files and also;

"Object name";"C:\Documents and Settings\Mark\Desktop\INSTALL_MSN_MESSENGER_DL.EXE"
"Detection name";"The file is signed with a broken digital signature, issued by: Microsoft Corporation."
AVG 'removed and healed' the infections where they were moved to the virus vault. A follow up scan using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware came up clean and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition only picked up a few tracking cookies but I'm pretty sure I'm not done and dusted with the problem.. I'd like some help with cleaning up the sytem so that the computer can be used safely in the future.

Helping me out with a laptop problem previously, a member suggested a scan with ESET Online Scan. Would that be a good place to start in this instance? Thanks in advance for any help that I recieve!

Cheers,

Dan

Computer Tech Guys and Gals,

We recently inherited a Sony desk top computer, Pentium II processor, 350? MHZ with a Windows 2000 operating system. The problem is the computer is password protected. The family member who donated the computer to us does not remember the password. The password is stored in the windows mode for both the administrator and different password for the user, or prior owner.

I have been able to remove some of the programs on the computer. I have also attempted to delete others as well as to make some changes to the operating system to no avail. I have tried to reboot the system with the recovery disk's, however I must have made some prior changes to the computer that it fails to read the recovery disk. The "bios lock" screen comes on when I attempt to make changes:

Question 1: How can I make changes to the operating system with the administrator having no password to have administrator capabilities.
Question 2: How can I have the computer read the recovery disks if I have inadvertently removed some prompts?
Question 3: Is there a way to wipe the hard drive clean so I can start fresh, with no password protection where I can upgrade to Windows XP?

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

A:Recieved computer from family, password protected

You do not mention if this is a laptop or a desktop, and if the password is in Windows or in the BIOS.

If it's a laptop with a BIOS password, then you could be out of luck. They are usually a "return to agent" job. The BIOS password is designed to foil the thief on a laptop.

If its a BIOS password on a desktop, then removing the CMOS battery would clear it.

If its not a BIOS password (and there is a suggestion it's not as you have "removed some programs") then just put the XP CD in the drive and reboot.

If it does not boot from the CD, go into the BIOS and set the boot order to have the CD higher than the HDD in the boot order.

I shared a Canon Pixma MP170 printer on a Windows 7 Home Premium machine. I can see the shared printer name over the network from the XP machine within Add Printer Wizard screen. When I try to add the shared Canon printer on a Windows XP SP3 computer it says it will connect to the printer to download drivers but than it says no drivers are available.
Then it opens up a screen that asks me to provide an unnamed INF file. I put the install CD for the Pixma in the CD tray and pointed it to all Canon INF files located on the CD (one at a time) but it will not go any further. I also found same type of Canon printer INF files within the Program Files/Canon printer folder, but it would not use those either to complete printer add.

Am I missing some procedure that is needed to add a shared printer on a Windows XP computer from a different operating system such as Windows 7 Home Premium?

The Canon MP170 works both when plugged into XP machine and Win7 machine through USB port

Hello all,

Recently the family's computer got virus infested (although, to be honest, I think it has been infested for some time and I just didn't catch on until now). I ran it through a boatload of scanners, including a boot scan with avast and several scans in safe mode, and it picked up something like 22 viruses obtained in a variety of ways (trojans, Java exploits, etc.). I went through everyone's profiles to update what was out of date, but it seems I still don't have full access to the profiles of two of my kids. Something happened to both their desktops where the pictures they had set as wallpaper are no longer there, replaced by a solid background color. I have tried many times and many ways over to change this, to no avail. Sometimes I get a little error message that says, "The visual styles could not be applied" or something like that; most of the time, I get no message and it just won't change.

I just now noticed when my daughter said she couldn't change her screensaver that there's something going on with that too. Her profile is set up to display the screensaver after one minute and revert to the welcome screen upon return; no matter how many times I try to increase the time, it reverts to one minute. When I checked under power options to see if someone had set the monitor to shut down after one minute, I saw her power options are nonexistent.

The recycle bin seems inaccessible; I cannot open it or view its contents... Read more

Hi,

I'm new here. I have a question about web surfing and download privacy. I share a computer with my ex-boyfriend who is currently still a "roommate," as we share a lease. (It's complicated). He seems to be aware of (or rather, able to retrieve) everything I surf and everything I download, including Real Player downloads -- even though I always clear the cache and run Ccleaner. Can you tell me how he's doing this? I'm especially curious about Real Player since I have the settings to not remember download history. There's nothing particularly private about anything I download, but the fact that I cannot do so with any privacy is upsetting.

I'm also wondering, given his level of skills at seemingly retrieving anything, what the probability may be that he has been able to retrieve my passwords or emails. I also don't know how to find hidden keyloggers. I do run Spybot periodically, but I think Spybot can be told manually to ignore things like keyloggers, right?

I use XP and usually surf with Firefox. I realize the easiest solution here is to stop sharing a computer, but I cannot afford to do that at the moment, so any help would be much appreciated.

We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

Both computers are part of the same workgroup and I have the same user account/password combination on both computers plus I have password protected sharing turned on in the network and sharing centre along with file and printer sharing turned on.

On computer 1 I have right clicked and selected that I want the folder shared. When I navigate via the network on computer 2 to computer 1 the shared folder shows up on computer 2 but double clicking on it to open it gives me an alert saying I don't have permission to access it, no option to type in the user name and password (according to the help files I shouldn't even need to type the password in if both computers have the same username/password anyway but would need it if I'm logged in as a different user).

Hi
We have a network with a server running 2003 and all 63 computers using xp pro.

the 3 office computers need to access a shared folder, containing a frequently used program, on one of these computers. (This folder cannot be stored on the server as the program doesn't work then. It is also easier as only one computer needs the frequent program updates). I have done this by mapping a drive to the folder.

The user of Computer A has left and I changed the username and password on server and computer.

When I tried to connect using Computer B I was prompted for a username and password to access it and everything was fine. But computer C didn't give me this option. I disconnected the drive and tried to remap it.

computer A has the folder, computer B can access the folder and program, computer C can see the computer but not the folder.

All computers were recently upgraded from win 98 with fresh install except Computer C which was just upgraded over the top (Lazy tech guys couldn't be bothered to reformat)

I have called in tech guys but they take 3 days to arrive and usually mess things up

Has anyone any ideas on why this is happening. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Mel
 

A:Can see computer but not shared folder on network

What are you the System Admin or Network Engineer?

Computer C has to be re-formated with a fresh copy of XP. So that would have to be done if the lazy tech didn't do it right the first time.

Sounds like your remoting into these Computer A, Computer B and Computer C. Can you go out to their location and see what's going on? If you can't get the techs to do since you have to wait 3 days. Computer C needs to be taken care of.

Each PC A, B, C need to be setup in Active Directory so you can administer them correctly.

Windows 8.1x64 clean install from dvd. I have a private network configured as a Workgroup consisting of a W2000 photocopy machine,XP desktop, W7 desktop and laptop and now a Windows 8.1 desktop. During the initial installation I have files on the Windows 7 desktop I need so from Windows Explorer I clicked on the Windows 7 computer to gain access to the password shared folders and their files.
I entered the User and Password info and clicked the "stay connnected" as I expected to reboot several times during this computers installation.

Everything worked just great UNTIL I no longer wanted the connection to the Windows 7 computer.
On XP and even Windows 7 it was trivial to Disconnect a computer that I had established a share with.

However, on Windows 8.1 I cannot figure out how to do it. How do I disconnect the share with the Windows 7 computer?

This may seem trivial but I cannot figure it out. Obviously I can disconnect from the W7 computer but that computer is shared with others as well. And then the other computers would have to re-establish their shares. And, that would just be a work around.

Please help me by telling me the right way to do this...
