Preferred Solution: OH the Agony of pop-ups!

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: OH the Agony of pop-ups!

Please download SmitfraudFix
Extract the files to the Desktop

Now, start the computer in Safe Mode:When the machine first starts again, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Press Enter to boot into Safe Mode.
Open SmitfraudFix Double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select Option 2 - Clean by typing 2 and press Enter (Deletes infected files)
You are prompted: Do you want to clean the registry? answer Y (yes) and hit Enter in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.
The tool also checks if a relevant file, wininet.dll, is infected.
You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found).
Replace infected file? Answer Y (yes) and hit Enter to restore a clean file.

Restart the computer to complete the removal process.

Also download ComboFix
Save it to the Desktop

Double-click combofix.exe to run the program
Follow the prompts.
(Don't click on the window while the program is running, it may cause your system to stall.)

When finished, a log, ComboFix.txt, is produced.

Please run HijackThis once again to obtain a new log.

Please post the SmitFraudFix report located at C:\rapport.txt , the ComboFix.txt, and a new HijackThis log.

Please help!

Despite my efforts to maintain a clean and safe computer, something miserable has bitten me. I'm not entirely sure what the issue is, but I know something unusual is going on.

Here are some signs and symptoms ...

Recently, after periods of unattended downloading, I would lose internet connectivity. The only way I could regain connectivity would be to reboot. Reboot would take what felt like forever. Sometimes there would be a windows dialogue box asking for login credentials for dial-up, which is odd considering I am not on dial. Recently, it has been discovered that all boot ups are agonizingly slow with apparent lengthy periods of inactivity (ie hard disk activity, or even a signal being sent to the monitor) On average, 4-5 minutes to boot up.

Today, while surfing, my AVG anti-virus went crazy picking up immediate virii from websites that were appearing out of know where. Bam Bam Bam Bam! A new virus infected webpage auto opens and is caught by AVG. There was also an unusual blue webpage titled windows critical update that could not be closed. I use Firefox, not IE, but if I recall, these websites may have been hosted by IE.

I have randomly been asked on occasion to shut down.

I have lost ability to access regedit (says the administrator has removed privledges, even in safe mode as the administrator). Even known workarounds commonly available on the internet have failed.

I am unable to run Adaware ... it says it's already running, when it's not ... that I ... Read more

There is very little reference material online regarding this virus.

Since posting original message, I have scanned again with onboard AVG virus can, and online Housecall scan. Both identified several other virii, but not the one in question. These secondary virii were removed as part of the scan process.

Hello Peeps,    I just received T520 package today and my excitement suddenly turned to grief when I saw a bright glowing red dot on my screen. OMG... a dead pixel right out of the box! Did I just drop my hard earned grand that I have been saving for months on something that would bug me for the rest of the products life?    I quickly searched Lenovo's dead pixel policy and almost fainted when I found out the unit has to have at least 3 dead pixels to be considered for replacement noooooooo...wahhhh....boohohoho..sob       Why did they ship out a unit with dead pixel??? I'm pretty sure it was NOT missed by QA because it glows like a laser beam in the dark and a dead pixel would not develop while in transit!           I'm going to contact Lenovo post sales tomorrow and really hoping something can be done. I know some of you will consider this as another guy who got a dead pixel rant, but man, when someone spend this amount of cash, and I'm not rich, I would at least expect to receive a non-defective product. Oh Lordy, I should have trusted my instinct and buy something of this value in a brick and mortar store. Hoping for the best but this night would not be a pleasant one. Sigh,Jason

Hi Glenn, Welcome to the Forum.

The best answer here is probably to buy a new sound card

Hi Everyone,

Here is the dilemma that I am currently in. I just installed XP on a WD 40GB hard drive. I have been using a maxtor 80GB up till now for storage. Well, I want to transfer all the digital photos and files (Which I have yet to burn, by the way). and put them onto the 40GB. I see both HDs on bios. I see both HDs in device manager. I dont see BOTH hard drives in MY COMPUTER!!! From what I keep reading, the only way windows will see the 80GB is if I partition/format it. There is one problem with that: I will lose all of my files if I partition/format it. Is there a way I can transfer these much needed files over??? PLEASE HELP!!!!

MS Update installed a Realtek driver that really does not agree with my system. I'm fine with the MS 5 High Def version.

Ever time I g to device manager and programs & features and delete it and spec the MS generic version I'm good for about a minute then the Realtek gets installed. Even after I delete the folder in programs. I am totally stumped here as this version MS is pushing out is really having problems and I cant make it go away.

I have gone to advanced settings and set it to prevent downloading ANY driver updates at all. It keeps coming back.

I've tried just about everything I can find on Google. I'd really appreciate some help on this. It began happening after this past Tuesdays update. I had other issues (now solved) with that update

A:MS Realtek driver agony - please help

The following steps worked for me...
First uninstall the faulty driver, but do not restart your machine until you do the following:

Type"Device Installation Settings" in your Windows search box. A result named "Change device installation settings" should show up.

?Choose No

Once that's done, you have to go into the Windows Update Settings and change it to "Notify Schedule a restart".

Now go ahead and do a restart.

At this point, the driver won't automatically install, but will be listed in Windows Update. Microsoft expects you to install it anyways. What you need to do is hide it from Windows Update. Download the "Show or hideupdates" troubleshooter package


That tool will then let you see what's in Windows update and you can then hide it from Windows update.

A:hard drive agony -- please help!!

I had a Western digital and a Maxtor HDD together in a system a few years ago. I can remember that they didn't both work together. Since then, I have sort of become brand loyal and only use Maxtor (Western digital and most others are just as good)-I don't mix hard drives. Most drives will work together but occasionally you get two that don't and you can avoid the possibility of this by just using one brand. If this is the case, then you might be able to put them both on different IDE channels long enough to transfer files.
If it isn't brand compatability, then check to see (in cmos) that your unrecognised drive is using the same access mode as it was before when it worked, probably LBA. If it is somehow set to a different mode, then what you described is exactly what happens.
In event of a corrupted partition, you may need to buy some partition salvaging software. One peice of software you can get for free usually on the Maxtor site is Maxblast, which runs on DR. DOS (one comes with each new boxed HDD too, if you still have it somewhere). If you download this HDD installation disc, and put it on a floppy it will give you a lot of great utilities to install and troubleshoot Maxtor hard drives.
One more thing to check is the cable. I have had ribbon cables that had one wire break somewhere and even though the drive continued to work, funny things would happen. You do have the proper 80 pin (not 40 pin) IDE cables, right?

Okay quick run up on how XP boots Boot.ini file loads windows. Most experienced users know the way to check a boot path is the msconfig option from run that is on every windows except win 2000. Start>Run>msconfig>boot.ini. You can change some boot options here and get rid of os's that were deleted with their boot path. But you know what not so on Vista, it uses a whole new system called bcdedit.exe I believe that boot.ini doesn't even see or acknowledge. So to bring you up to speed here's what happened:

I was on the release candidates with build 2600 I tried to install it to my 2nd spindled drive. A totally seperate physical drive I labeled as F:. It wouldn't work it would give the black screen of death with no blinking cursor, no nothing, just my monitor looking at me saying "I'm glowing amber on my led what are you going to do?". Obviously install Norton Partition Magic and make room for it on the main drive.

So now I stretch out room on my C: for two more partitions. Another Primary I label G: and an extended volume I label as H:. Guess what Vista RC1 build 2600 works great! I get a dual boot option after the motherboard logo goes away and it will default to Vista but I can also choose Vista...... for about 2 weeks then the same pill looking icon Windows says to install for protection starts causing problems, I think the thing was PC Chillin or something like that. I uninstall it, RC1 kind of works but inevitably something is ... Read more

A client brought in his laptop a few days back saying it wouldn't start up anymore. I took a look..

When turning on the laptop, I am presented with a HP login screen requesting a fingerprint or password. This password is known, we type it in and get a windows error stating that the bootloader is corrupt.

I figured this would be easy enough - simply repair the bootloader. I booted off of the windows 8 disk and tried startup repair. Startup repair failed, because it could not access the drive the OS is installed on.

I decide to look up what the HP login screen post-bios is all about. It turns out HP Protect Tools was used to encrypt the partition the OS and my clients (important!) data is on. I later found out that messing with the bootloader on a drive encrypted with HP's software can mess things up further, so I'm glad in a way that the windows DVD repair options didn't function.

I searched online for ways to recover the data and found a way to perhaps rescue the files here:
However, this method requires the backup encryption key (typcially saved to usb) to work.

Now here comes the fun stuff. The guy this laptop belongs was not aware that his drive was encrypted and didn't even know it was installed.. His laptop was originally installed at his companies main office, so we turned there to get the key file required to unlock the files on the drive. They don't have the backup encryption key. Brilliant.

Oh, did I mention tha... Read more
