Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

Q: Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

I am running AdAware/AdWatch on Windows XP with IE6.
AdWatch is showing a continuous attempt to modify the registry. This is what the typical modification attempt log shows:
registry modification detected.

Ad-Watch event log
Root:HKEY_CURRENT USER
Key:software\microsoft\internetexplorer\main
value: search page
data:http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch
new data:http://www.google.com

Is this connected to MS' Windows Live Page that comes up with the opening of IE6?
Any input or help on what is going will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

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: Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

It looks like you had microsoft live search set as your search engine possibly when you installed a windows live component and then you installed something like google toolbar which wants to change it to google.

Did you approve or deny the change?

OR just turn off adwatch , make the change and turn it back on.

Hi,

I have been infected 2 days ago and Windows Update didn't work anymore (error code 80246008). So I have cleaned the corrupt files with MicrosoftFixit found on the Web.

Finally, I have got the BITS service working again with the following batch program wich calls himself the "BITS.reg" file :

sc create BITS binpath= "c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs" start= delayed-auto
regedit /s c:\Users\fab\Desktop\BITS.REG
net start bits
rmdir %windir%\softwaredistribution /s /q
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s atl.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
net start wuauserv

I execute this bacth file as Administrator and the BITS key appears in registry with Windows Update working fine.

The issue is that the modifications in the registry base is not taken into account for the next startup of Windows 7 : I can't see anymore the BITS key and I have to run this bacth program every time there's a new startup of Windows 7.

Is it a problem of right persmissions on this Key ? Have I got to change the owner as Administrator ?

Here is the file BITS.reg :

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A:Problem for saving modifications of registry in next reboot

Hi, lets get this straight you open regedit and the Bits service is there (as you posted). Then you restart your computer and do not run the .Bat file if you open regedit the bits service is completely missing from the registry? OR is it that Bits is simply not running in services (automatic delayed start)? Is your user name fab?

Hi, writing on behalf of a friend whose computer won't boot into Windows. When you try to it has a BSOD and says that the registry is corrupt (photo below). From the boot menu I've tried every option, Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode (all variants) and Load Windows Normally. No matter which option is selected the same BSOD appears and the computer reboots. I have also tried booting from the Windows XP install disc, but even there the same BSOD comes up and the computer reboots. It loads all the drivers, but before it gets to the actual recovery console the BSOD appears.

He has Windows XP SP3, has not installed any new hardware or software recently and hasn't updated any drivers himself. Automatic updates were on, so that's all I can think of as the culprit for why this error has shown itself, otherwise there haven't been any recent changes that could explain this. The system has 4gb RAM and the hard drive is 500gb. I can get the specifics if need be, but it doesn't present like a hardware issue.

The internet tells me at this point his only real option is to buy a new hard drive, but I wanted to see if there were any solutions out there that I haven't been able to find.

Here's the photo of the BSOD:

Hi everyone!
It has been a while since I've posted to this amazing community. If anyone has any suggestions regarding my problem, I would greatly appreciate some help (hoping not to take my comp to the shop :s ).

Here's the deal:

- I run XP on my 3 month year old home-build pc.
- Everything was running fine last night. I shut it down before I went to bed.
- Today I went back on and it booted but froze at my desktop. I could not right click, ctrl alt del, open the start menu, access icons, etc.
- I rebooted a few times but nothing fixed the problem.
- I rebooted in safe mode, seems to be okay...
- Now whenever I reboot I get the following error: "One of the files containing the system's registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. the recovery was successful."
- After about 30 seconds of seeing this error, the computer reboots itself-- rinse, wash, repeat.

Registry errors scare the living bejesus out of me... so, any thoughts before I send this badboy into the shop?

THANKS!

? SYSTEM file 21,495,808
(should be about 9,900,000 bytes).

regback
These were copied to config and are the same files

mybackup
These were previously in config prior to trying to making changes
? DEFAULT, 786,432, SAM 57,344 and SECURITY 24,576 files

Okay, so this started yesterday and by the looks of it for no reason. So yesterday I started to a YouTube video and my computer crashed. I thought it was odd but nothing more, because in the past, it did this before. So I turn my computer back on and continue surfing the web and I come across a different site with a video not from YouTube, I start watching and the same thing again. At first I thought maybe I needed to do some clean up so i did I fragmented and cleaned the registry, but it still happen again. So my next thought was that my computer was overheating so I checked the fan, which looked to be ok, and raised my laptop for better airflow, but still happened again. I don't think I'm because I can work on my computer for hours without any problem and this seems to still happen even if I just started up my computer. So now I think that my computer has a virus or some kind of malware, because this also happens when I try to started up Spybot -search and destroy and it will crash in the middle of an AVG anti-virus free scan.
There's also one more thing a little while ago I had my computers memory replaced becuases the old one died and maybe it's my video card's turn to?

So some info on my computer: I'm on a IBM ThinkPad, I work off of Windows XP, I have 149 GB, 40 RAM I think, and a Radeon 7500 graphics card

In the registry they may appear under the publisher name instead.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

I am not a gamer, don't overclock...just want it stable and lean without all the unecessary background apps running and dont need all the superfluous software.

For example, do many with XP disable system restore? I did with my old OS as I have an external HD withh system backup images. Should I keep the "enable write caching on the disk" checked in the HD setting in the device manager? Is Corel Photo CCentter bundled with any other software? I have many other questions, but willl settle for feedback first.

Also, if anyone has recently purchased a Dell E510 (or other Dell) can you tell me all the trial ware that I can uninstall? I am afraid to get rid of too much because I fear its bundled into other apps that I need. I curse the OEMs for doing this.

Let's say I'm in Australia, and I open the British news website bbc.com. Obviously what I'll see isn't exactly what the Brits are seeing (different ads and even different stories - Australian-weighted).
 
OK, so, would there there be a way to open this site from Aust. so I'm seeing exactly what the Brits are seeing?
 
Thanks very much for any responses.

Hi everybody,
ATA V. 1.9.7312.32791 - fresh install, no update
Just recently installed Microsoft's ATA. I only use lightweight deployment option for ata gateways on every domain controller available, no other ata gateways in use. So for my understanding I don't need any configuration of event forwarding since the lightweight
gateways are able to read any event locally.

I am not able to get a report about modifications of sensitive groups, it's greyed out. An informational message below it says: "No modifications of sensitive groups were observed, make sure that events forwarding is properly configured."
I changed many things about my sensitive groups for testing purpose btw.
Any hints?
Thanks!

Thanks, regards, tim

I guess I'll ask this here as I cannot get through to RT Se7en Lite themselves. I used eicfg removal so I can have my install USB work for any of the versions. When I go to use RT Se7en Lite it asks which version I want to modify. I think the somewhat minor things I want to change will work for all if not most of the versions. Will it actually modify them all or is there any way to select more than one version or do I have to do each individually? Or run the eicfg after I do mods?

Also does anyone know what is with RT Se7en Lite? I sent an email to their support email and I get (several days of) messages that it is not deliverable: 454 4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem. Their main website will never connect.

Also is there a W7 download available that has all of the updates or at least most of them to start with? I have one referred to from here that has SP1, but it takes tons of updates.

Thanks here.

Hello there, I am thinking of puchasing an M710 and I had a few questions I am hoping people could answer for me before taking the plunge. In terms of the power supply I belive its quite low wattage, in the low 200's - is it possible to upgrade this at a later date. I may down the line wish to buy a graphics card and I know it will need a better psu. In terms of graphics cards, the power should be the only issue, the case itself is big enough to fit some standard graphics cards. For RAM, how many RAM slots are there? if I get the 8GB option, is that going to be one stick of 8 or 2x4gbs - again if I want to upgrade this, will there be an available slot, or will I have to get rid of the exsisting RAM? I am going to add an SSD, will they automatically load the OS on the SSD as opposed to the standard 500gb hard drive? Thanks a lot in advance

Hi all,
 
After running GMER, I am being notified that there are "rootkit modifications" detected. I'm very concerned, and I'd be grateful if someone could help me out in disinfecting my computer. I can attach or copy&paste logs if required.
 
TDSSKiller and MalwareBytes have not detected anything, but it seems that GMER and RogueKiller do.
 
I am very new to malware detection and removal, so I apologise for any incompetencies.
 
Thank you.
 
Edit: I think I posted this topic in the wrong forum, and that it should have been in the Virus and Malweare Removal forum.

Hi all, I don't know a lot about computers, so bear with me... I just inherited an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop computer (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02859331).  It came with Windows 7, and I plan on upgrading to Windows 10 before the July 26th "free upgrade" deadline. (although I could be talked out of that, if it matters).   I would, ideally, like to install Realtek Audio Manager to replace the Beats Audio that the machine came with.  From what I've read online, it seems that it may not be possible.  I plan to do some audio recording on this new machine, and I don't really want everything filtering through Beats, with its kooky settings and sound manipulations.   I tried to download the Realtek Audio Driver, but after the install it doesn't show up anywhere (other than Add/Remove Programs, strangely).  It doesn't appear in Control Panel, or Device Manager, or Programs.   The only file that shows up in a computer-wide search is the setup file, which I've run twice.  I certainly don't have the option or access to choose it over Beats.  I have a feeling it's simply not compatible.   So I guess my question is this: Is there a modification I can make to this machine (ie, new sound card?) so that I can install and use Realtek? Or is Beats simply hardwired into the motherboard in such a way that there are no alternatives.   Thanks for reading,Nathan

Can anyone recommend any good software for logging computer modifications and maintenance? I support my family and friends and sometimes it's hard to keep all all the changes I have done over the years in my lil noggin. Also it would help me log fixes so I could reference if someone else had the same issue I could more easily reference the fix.

im on win xp sp3, system scanners are cccleaner,nod32 and superanti spyware.

this is what happened.

im browsing though my yahoo mail inbox, saw this spam (subject: unknown)
decided to add the email address to blocked emails. i have to open the email so that i can see the address.
the problem began.

these are my troubleshooting procedures:
1. ran scanners - nothing detected
2. cleaned cookies, history
3. ccleaner registry scan - nothing
4. system restore - still
5. imported a backup reg file

I believe that upon opening the email it modified some of registry keys for the keyboard since i dont see any unrecognized processes in my task manager, at least from the visible list.

it is quite annoying since i use keyboard shortcuts alot like ctrl+arrow keys to navigate on some texts.

also some keys that have been modified is:

insert key = stand bys the PC
pressing - = -0
pressing 1 = `1

any help will be very much appreciated

Hi people..

as suspected opening the email modified current keyboard mapping.

After hours of digging solutions in the net i found this one:

Restore keyboard mapping - Dev Hardware

reinstallation of the keyboard registry keys for the US layout solved my issue..

my keyboard is running smoothly after the steps given in that thread.

lesson learned: if the spam is in the inbox, move it to spam folder to reduce the risks if you intend to view it.

sorry can't find any edit button on my original post.

I'm tagging this as solved.

Hi - I'm new here so please be kind.

I have just bought a Packard Bell IMEDIA A3317 - 3G, triple Phenom core, graphics & sound integrated in motherboard, 320G HD, Vista Home basic. No driver discs included, but 2 created from within Vista for a) Vista re-install and b) Apps Drivers

I need to do ASP programming, so tried loading Win 2000 Professional (SP4) onto a new 320G HD. Sadly, the only screen resolution that works is 640/480 . I obviously need win2000 Pro drivers - since this is a standard package computer, one would imagine that they would be available as a block somewhere, but no joy in finding them.

The screen resolution hinders (prevents) setup of internet access, so I can't access Driver Robot over the net (driver robot needs to work on the machine with the problem)

There is a PCI-E slot, but am not sure if that would be a solution.

This must be a problem others have faced somewhere (or am I the only one!!!!! ) Any ideas on where to get a package of drivers? or what else I could do?

Thanks in advance

Tsarina

P.S. I know it isn't the best of machines, but my needs are very simple - just a little ASP development and writing letters.

Hellllllo !

On my work laptop I have my Administrator account, which I use all the time, and a Guest account that people can use to go on the Internet etc.

What I have not found out how to do yet is to prevent the Guest account users from :

- Installing or removing software
- Changing any setting in control panel (or the shortcuts leading to it, such as "right-click on the Desktop > personalize"
- Changing internet connections (I've caught guests on the neighbor's open network often, even though my WPA2 wireless network is remembered)

What I have found how to do, using permissions:

- Open specific programs (I have gone and edited the permissions on all the .exes files for the programs I wanted to restrict, and it works fine)
- Access partitions or hard drives (Guests only see the path exists, they have no access and no info to the partitions/drives I restricted)

Now, about my problem, what I've tried so far:

- Same as I did to restrict access to partitions/hard drives, using permissions: I tried to modify the permissions of the Guest account to allow only reading and launching apps on C: as a whole. That didn't work though, Windows wouldn't let me change the permissions on the system disc, even as an administrator with UAC off. I tried many combinations of allow/deny and no change is permitted.

So, what can I do ? Right now, there are only a few shortcuts on the Guest account desktop, but I've tested it: using the Start menu or the com... Read more

A:How to prevent Guest account from making modifications to the computer

A guest account DOESN'T have admin rights, just as a standard user. He/she cannot modify registry keys in HKLM so cannot modify system wide settings!

He can change his own font and his own windows sounds. But not install programs.

Hi guys,

I deactivated some processes in msconfig to improve the startup speed of my computer. I always did some changes, rebooted the computer and looked whether everything is still working. It looked as if everything was working, but then I recognised that there were blue frames around my desktop symbols:

Further I recognised, that Internet Explorer 8 and Microsoft Excel 2003 show massive Display Errors (the main problem is, that images are not displayed properly):

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

So I decided to re-activate the processes I deactivated before the last re-boot. It didn't change a thing. Then I decided to re-activate all processes, but even this didn't help:

Kostenlos Bilder hochladen | img4web.com

Apart from the changes is msconfig I haven't done any changes in the time when the error first appeared. It seems quite strange to me, that re-activating the processes does not fix the problem.

My operating system is Windows XP Professional SP3.
Unfortunately System recovery was disabled before I did the changes (Yes, I will activate it for future modifications on my system), so I can't simply un-do everything.

I'm really desperate about this problem and really hope, that someone here can help me (otherwise I will re-install Windows, but this seems a bit excessive ;-) ).

Many thanks in advance ! :)
