Should I go ahead & do the following?

Q: Should I go ahead & do the following?

I'm trying to keep my old computer running as smooth as possible until I get another one in the not too distant future. I have Norton/Symantec as my security program. At one time I had a few other programs that helped protect my computer & things were running fine.

Then I had a problem & I called Norton & they wanted to do the deal where they hook-up with my computer. I noticed they were getting rid of the other security programs I had - & they told me that having them could mess up Nortons ability to do what it did.

I've recently noticed that I still have files on my computer from the program I had called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. The person that told me about this program said it was good to have & wouldn't be a problem to have it along with Norton. When I say Norton I mean the security & anti-virus program that I pay for every year from them.

Anyway - being a novice I have this question. Is it good for me to have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware & run it once in a while even though I have Norton. I had the free version of it. If its OK to have it......should I just uninstall the files I have on it & then download the free version they have now which is probably updated from when I had it before.

Preferred Solution: Should I go ahead & do the following?

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.)

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Please move hijackthis to the root of C:\.
Do you know what program this entry is related to? C:\Program Files\Mini Motty\skinkers.exe

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run ad-aware SE with VX2 add-on cleaner, Spybot Search & Destroy (with updated database) and CWShredder as these programs will clean a lot of the crap out first. All links to programs are in my signature. Ok..on to the log?..

Download Winsock2Fix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing/visible also. Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore.

Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Open add/remove programs and remove the following if listed.

Messenger Plus

Messenger Plus= Produces adware on the PC.

Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be but make sure)

C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus! 2\MsgPlus.exe

Check and fix the following in HijackThis if they still exist (make sure you do not miss an entry)

Please advise.. Thx

A:Looking ahead

Creative has new drivers, so not a problem. In all previous builds, the driver worked flawlessly. I had to re-install it in build 7600, but likely due to a conflict created by the install of Sun VirtualBox.

You look good to go.

Looking ahead to FF 57 (expected to be released Nov. 14) :
1) Firefox 57 will feature a new core engine, called Quantum, that purports to make FF 57 run twice as fast as FF 52 (released about a year ago).
2) FF 57's Photon User Interface will offer a new look for the entire browser.
3) Firefox 57 will replace the old Add-ons API with the new WebExtensions API.  As a result,  legacy add-ons that have not been ported to Firefox's new add-ons technology will stop working  --- meaning that nearly 75% of all Firefox add-ons won't be available to users on the new version.

Hello...my son's MSI GE60 OND (think it's a OND anyway) laptop which came with win8.1 has not yet got the go-ahead to install win10.

We signed up for it when it came out and got the win 10 icon ...but it states something along the lines that it isn't yet ready to be installed.

The MSI website isn't much good .....I have an account but can't log in as I now need a code that I haven't got , to log in. Some companies seem to try to discourage forums in my opion-

The laptop though doesn't seem to appear on their list though of LAPTOPS OK FOR UPDATES.
Windows 10 MDA Microsites

However the specs are better than my homemade PC which is upgraded as is my son's

Is it still early days (in europ?) and should I wait or should I force the update (registry edit required I believe)


A:win 10 not got go ahead yet

you can download the iso and install it. You may want to create an image file of the current install in case there is a reason for not getting the download.

long.Hi, my name is Jim. I have been hearing crazy beeps coming from the PC - the sound windows defaults to when a program fails - so I started doing some checking. I have run HijackThis and didn't see anything unusual. Also ran Autoruns and disabled a few unessecery items.Still concerned, today I downloaded and ran TrendMicros RootkitBuster. It found 1 hidden file that it couldn't remove. I've tried deleting it fom command prompt in safe mode and it tells me the file is too long. So in exploring google for long filename i came across a Bleeping Computer thread that mentioned combofix. Instead of joining and realizing that there were certain steps you wanted us to follow before posting, I went to the combofix tutorial and downloaded it and the windows recovery console.When I dragged the recovery console onto combofix things went a little crazy. Boclean reported a rootkit (couldn't catch the name message disappeared too quickly) then shut itself down. Next my AT&T antivirus shutitself down. Spybot Teatimer reported 2 registry key changes and shut it self down.I never got the message that recovery console was successfully installed. Instead the combofix box stayed open and said preparing to scan. It never started. I closed the window. Left all FW,AS AV's off and dragged the revery console onto combofix again. This time nothing unusual happened but I still didn't get the message that recovery console was installed.Combofix went on and ran it's scan and I have the logfile. Wh... Read more

A:Got a bit ahead of myself - already ran combofix

Thanks all, I went ahead and restored PC prior to combofix. Not sure if I have a problem or not but I did find a program to get rid of the long filename hidden file.

Dear fellows:
I have an older ( about 6 years) IBM Thinkpad 600X. I am trying to install MS Windows XP through CD-Rom over the Linux currently installed on the HDD. I have tried to make CD-Rom drive as a first boot drive, but haven't had any success. Please explain in a simple way:how to move CD-Rom Drive ahead of the HDD in the Bios. Thanks, brij.

A:CD-Rom Drive ahead of the HDD

Most BIOS will start with a screen that has system information and tabs along the top . . generally General . . Advanced . . Boot . . Exit are then ones most common.

Click on the Boot and in the body of the screen you should see "Boot Order" or something like that. Usually, you can click on the first item and move it up or down to change the order the syatem will look for a bootable device.

Default usually is : First FDD (or Floppy)
Second: HDD ( sometimes disc 0)
Third: CD-ROM

You would click on CD-ROM and move it up with the + - keys or Page up/Page down.
Then press F-10 to save and exit.

Hope this helps . . wrs

Hi. Slight problem. All was well until the 16th July. On the 17th July, according to my PC it was the 23rd. For some reason know only to IT technology, my PC decided it didn't like the third week of July and promptly gained a week. I put the date back - only to literally watch it slowly then highlight the date it had decided upon. What happened on the 16th July originally that prompted this - I have no idea - no event log or anything else. Have synchronised with internet time stamp and it tells me it can't because my date is wrong. Every time I change it, it holds for one or two seconds and then literally unhighlights todays date (that I have just changed it to) and highlights the date approximately a week ahead. Anyone have any ideas because I'm getting more than a little frustrated with receiving mail a week before I send it. Many thanks

A:Solved: Way ahead

You'll probably need to adjust your time in the BIOS instead of windows. When you first power on your PC theres a screen that comes up for a few seconds, i.e. the manufacturers name. There is a key you must tap to get in. Unfortunetly, not all motherboards are the same. Its usually F2, F1, or the delete key. It might tell you what key to press on the screen itself for a few seconds, giving you enough time to see what it is. Whatever the key is just keep tapping it until you get in there and from there adjust the date/time. Be careful not to adjust anything else while you are in the BIOS. Save, Exit and restart. Next time you boot into windows, it should reflect the changed date correctly.

OK... I moved to quickly to instal & run ComboFix, w/o registering & getting further instruction here first. I don't know that it has caused any problem yet, but now, I'm asking for your help (after I've already run ComboFix).What brought me to this point...What basics I know about the computer, I have learned through others over the last 5 or 6 years, so I'm limited. I had recently switched from three seperate free services (anti virus, anti spyware, & firewall) to "Microsoft Security Esentials", which I understood to have all three under one roof.Yesterday I began to see multipal pop ups, including "Nexplore". I Googled Nexplore & found this site & instruction about ComboFix. W/O fully digesting the whole thing, I went ahead & installed & ran ComboFix, W/O seeking instruction to do so first. Hopefully I haven't caused more problem. After ComboFix installed & ran I have done nothing except copy the screen of info it gave & came here. Sorry that I jumped ahead like that.

For the past two days, my sister's system seems to be running exceptionally slow.  It also acts like it is freezing up or just extremely busy with almost constant hourglass/spinning circle, cursor freezes or sometimes even switches to a search glass or scroll arrows which I would normally relate to everything from corrupted drivers, to some software that got installed that was having issues and was basically locking up the system until a timeout occurs.  I have even seen the zoom of certain web pages change without ever touching anything.  I have never seen anything like this. 
But the main reason I suspect this is malware,spyware,virus related is because upon opening a web page (especially with firefox) things seem to be normal (no home page hijack, yet), but as soon as I click on a link, such as to read a news article, I get multiple new tabs and pop up windows (at least 5 or 6) with an assortment of ads, pictures, and everything else but what the link should have led to.  IE doesn't seem to have these issues
I have already did the normal type scans such as Malwarebytes, SAS, Spybot S&D, and even though they "sometimes" find a few items, they are limited to tracking cookies, and other such minimal threat items.  The system uses AVG Free as it's AV software and it also finds nothing.  But everything I try doesn't seem to get me anywhere.  So at this point, I have to relent and ask for Help!  ;...

I had this installed a while ago, but when i went to uninstall it recently i must have done something wrong because the uninstaller doesn't work properly now. When i go to add/remove programs and click the ahead incd icon, it simply states "InCD 4 is not installed on your computer" and closes.
Ive had a look in program files and there is no sign of it ever being there, but im sure there must be some parts of it left in the registry. If someone could point out the correct registry entries to remove or change that would be a great help! Or any other solution would be appreciated.
Its not an emergency, its just highly annoying when im trying to clean my computer up!

I've chosen to Hide several of this months updates but was wondering if I should go ahead with the two .NET 3.5.1 ? One of them is actually from the August updates I guess, don't know why I missed it then.
I also have one for .NET 4 dated Aug. I do remember hiding a NET 4 because I was thinking about uninstalling it due to something? I'd read about problems with it. I just looked at my list of "Installed Updates" & see that I have 18 of the NET 4 all dated 6/25/13 so now don't know what to do about that.


A:Go ahead with .Nets if hiding some others?

The fact that you have 18 .NET 4 updates installed on the same day probably simply means that you only recently installed .NET 4 - and it was the first time the system had a chance to update to current levels.
You should still install all the later updates, if you're going to continue with .NET 4 installed.

.NET 3.5 is part of the operating system - you should install all updates for it.

As I am planning to upgrade to Bulldozer early next year when the FX 8170P is scheduled for release thought I?d go ahead and get the major pieces in place. Will be utilizing the following components from the current AMD rig and other spare parts:

OCZ Vertex 128GB
Corsair HX850
Sapphire HD5870 x 2
Auzentech X-Fi HomeTheater HD
Internal Hard Drives

Already have a buyer lined up to purchase the remainder of my current AMD system intact, also throwing in a Sapphire HD 4890 2GB. This will help cover roughly half the cost of this upgrade (not counting the FX 8170P).

The following components have been ordered and should arrive before the end of next week:

Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower $189
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 $250
Phenom II X6 1100T $189
Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler $120
Lian Li USB3.0 to MB 20-Pin Adapter $15
Tuniq TX-4 Extreme Performance $12
16GB Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 2000 $300
Scythe Kaze Master Pro Fan Controller $45
Logitech MK520 Wireless Keyboard & Mouse $44
Intel Gigabit Desktop Adapter $36

If everything arrives as scheduled hope to get started on this build next weekend

I'm running IE 5.0 and this problem has been hounding me for the past year. It doesn't happen all the time, neither can I nail it down to specific sites. What happens is this: before a page finishes loading or right at the point when it has finished, it immediatly jumps foward to display the banner ad as an image by itself. So when it is done, all i have to look at is the banner ad. I can press the back button to get back to the page I wanted to be at. This will work as long as it doesn't jump foward again. If I am fast enough, I can hit the Stop button in time for it to stop and not jump foward.

Has anyone ever seen this problem before? If so, does the latest version of IE fix it? I'm not a bleeding edge kinda guy, so I tend to stick with the older versions until I have to upgrade....or maybe I'm just lazy

Hello folks,

Any idea why I get intermittent error messages that say

Title: InCd
"Unable to connect to file system - Service not running"

every now and then?

As Enthusiast, USASMA and Albert Frankenstein will testify, this is a problem that may be part of a whole suite of problems which I am trying to erradicate and determine if the cause is viral, SP2 compatibility, more sinister or just plain stoopidity on my part.

I do have an SP2 patch from Ahead software's site which I tried to no avail.

Case Study
I tried to burn an iso disc earlier and Nero StartSmart wouldn't enable the "Next" button to commence the burn. I noticed on looking harder that my CDRW drive was "in use" and had a little red x next to the unit name in StartSmart. There were no other apps using the drive and InCd had displayed the window after the disc had been read and had been closed...I clicked options and the dialogue showed that the cd burning drive was still in use and did not display any info about the disc or the drive, but after a few seconds the drive became available and I could burn successfully.

1. Why is this error occuring intermittently (even after installing the InCD update) - The misconnection to the file system error that is.

2.Why does Nero state that the drive is in use when its not?

3. Why does InCD take longer than other applications to unload when logging off - (The End now window appears a few seconds after clicking log off)

4. I hav... Read more

What memory do you have installed and what does your motherboard support?

If you need info on your system download Everest version 1.51 (the last full feature freeware version) from oldversion.com

Tell us the make and model number of your motherboard and what the installed memory is. (Everest should tell you both those things).

Hi Amber and welcome to TSF. Instructions to help are below. Are the Webcelerator and eAccleration programs necessary on your machine now? You appear to have broadband access and these programs do nothing but give false impressions of speed increases.


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.

Before you do anything else, please create a folder for HijackThis and put it in a permanent folder (like C:\HJT) instead of the Temp folder. This is required because HijackThis will create backups and we don't want them to be deleted.

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. Windows XP's 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... Read more

I don't know where exactly to ask this question. Apologies if it's in the wrong area.

I just discovered that my Windows 8 laptop shows the time to be almost 2 seconds ahead of my Windows 7 laptop regardless of what time server I have them sync with. Any ideas why they would be different from one another? Is there any way to fix this?

I ask because homegroup refuses to work on the W8 system, but is fine on the W7 system. The troubleshooter keeps telling me that all homegroup users must have sync'd clocks, but could a couple of seconds really render it unusable?

A:Win 8 Internet Time 1-2 seconds ahead of Win 7

Hi, have you tried changing the server the windows 7 machine is syncing from? Is that syncing from the internet? I know this sounds funny but have you tried restarting the machine and ensuring all the latest updates are installed? Sometimes the most simple things help a lot. Hope it works and let me know how you get on.

Hi Win 8 folks,

I very regularly use the search function in Windows-looking for specific mp3s in a very large music library. The search "look ahead" function automatically kicks in (too quickly) after typing a few characters, causing a mis-spelling of the search name criteria and defeating its own purpose. When I try to type faster, I make mistakes that screw up the search anyway. It can take 3 or 4 attempts to properly complete the search criteria. This is a most irritating problem............The Google equivalent is a similar pain, but at least it has a high rate of success in guessing what you really want in the search.

Can anyone advise how to slow down the 'lookahead' feature in the search or if not, how to turn it off? I don't know what the correct name of the function is so can't do a 'google' for instructions to disable it.

Yours all in anticipation...

A:Win 8.1 'search ahead' activates too quickly

After reading this page:
can&#39;t do incremental search in windows explorer - Microsoft Community

I wonder if the last suggestion, to use Listary utility, may be the best one.
The consensus seems to be there is no way to adjust the speed of the "select as you type" functionality.

10 out of 70 of the W7 x64 Pro NVR recorders I am maintaining keep setting their time to 1 hour ahead. I have set this to sync internet time with time.nist.gov and have set it to manual time as well. They were all initially set to sync time with
time.nist.gov and they all went to the wrong time sometime Wednesday night. I set one to manual time on some last and it still jumps 1 hour ahead.

This is a major problem as it stops people from viewing footage as the recorder is 1 hour ahead of the viewing platform so it cannot view current footage.

They are all set to the correct time zone. I rarely have to reset the time normally usually 1 or 2  machines per month.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been getting crashes a lot lately when skipping in youtube videos and the like. It would seem to be a driver issue, as it only really happened after I got this new video card, yet I've followed all the procedures for updating my drivers. Uninstalled old ones, and web installed the new ones. Anyways, my dump file is attached. I'd appreciate any advice someone would have on this situation.

hi people,im new to this forum i keep getting emails that for example say 9;30pm but it is barley 1;30 pm on my actuall time,so its as if its arriving 8 hours ahead of time,what could be the problem? and its the same day.

A:email says arriving ahead of time

I doubt the problem is on your end. In all likelihood the issue (problem) is with either your provider's email server location, or the location of the email server where the email originated. I'm guessing that there is no definite number of hours that [all] emails are off; in other words the time could be either correct, or the time could be off by 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. hours.

Good Day to the good people of TechGuy Forums. I'm having this weird problem in my computer's date and time.

Its adding 100 years randomly, because of that I have to set it to the right date because other applications won't work with that time and date.

And when I say randomly, meaning you don't know when it will change the date and time.

Please help me with this.

My computer always skips 2 hours ahead of the normal time, and i always have to change it back. This problem conflicts with Tor and i am unable to run the software due to "incorrect time", even when i change the time back. Strangely enough this problem surfaces on all of our computers, my laptop, my fathers computer. My friends say they have the same issue. Is this a problem with windows? A bad driver? Maybe wifi related? Would appreciate a solution.

You have it set on the wrong Time Zone. Click your clock on the Taskbar and it will open. You will see "Change Date and Settings" at the bottom of the clock. Click on it. One of the options is to change your Time Zone. That should fix it.
