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.)

Hi matchead
 
My name is polskamachina and I would like to welcome you back to the Malware Removal Forum. I will be helping you with your malware issues.
What follows below are some ground rules for this forum.
I will reply as soon as possible (typically within 24-48 hours). In turn, I ask that you please respond within 72 hours. If you know you will be away longer than that, please let me know. I am in California at GMT-8 hours (Pacific Standard Time). If I do not respond to you within 48 hours, feel free to send me a private message.
Some points for you to keep in mind:
Do NOT run any tools unless instructed to do so.
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.
Do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
I cannot see your computer. Periodically update me on the condition of your computer, and provide as much detail as you can in every post.
Once things seem to be working again, please do not abandon the thread. I will give an "all-clean" message at the very end.
NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planned. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a flash drive, anywhere except on the computer.
NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.
Due to the fact that you have posted quite a bit of information in your previous topic in the Am I Infected forum, it might take me a bit longer to review all your information before I can respond with specific instructions. Please be patient.

My computer doesnt load up, doesnt progress any further than the Gigabyte utilities splash screen. I cannot open the CD drive, and pressing the keys on my keyboard does nothing. However, if I press the caps lock before turning my computer on, THEN the green light on the caps lock appears. Pressing the hotkeys, such as TAB for access to the BIOS, or F12 for utility program does nothing.

To give some background, I had been playing a game and had a tv show from the internet running in the background.

My system was running slow, and then seemed to have totally frozen. I waited 5 mins for it to resolve itself. It didn't. I tried task manager, and Ctl+Alt+Del to no avail.

I then, in desperation turned the power off at the mains.


PPS: I have left the computer for approx 4 hours to see if it was just running slowly. Sadly, no such luck.

Since then, I cannot even access Windows or anything.

Please help!

PS: This is a desktop computer I am referring to.

A:Computer is frozen when loading Windows, frozen at the Gigabyte Utilities screen

Quote:

This signifies a hardware problem. When you power up the computer can you press the eject button for the CD drive? Does the tray open? Does the light on the CD drive light or blink? on the Gigabyte screen can you enter Setup (Bios) usually by pressing the Del key?
If not, then shut down the computer and unplug all drives (CD/DVD, HDD's, Floppy etc) and start the computer. Can you get into the Bios? If not, then you may have a failing Power Supply Unit. Try testing with another.

I'm running W2K on an

AMD Athlon XP 1800+
512MB memory
gForce3 gfx card
200GB Seagate Ultra
Soundblaster Audigy

I just ran into a problem that I've not encountered before with any of my systems.

After a couple of hours of inactivity on my system, the system froze completely. I had to reset it because I couldn't reboot via the normal graceful ways. Anyway, when I did this, I heard a series of 2 short beeps followed by another series of maybe 8 regular beeps and I had no display. The funny thing is when I went to start it up again the next day, it came up, but the clock was wrong and after being able to type only a few characters, it froze up again. I might mention that although the frozen cursor problem happened intermittently initially, the problem got worse when I downloaded the recommended nVidia driver patch (Version: 61.77)...now I can't keep the system up long enough to test anything.

That's pretty much it...Oh, I looked in the documentation re: the beeps (to attempt to decipher them) and there's nothing...not in the book, nor on the mainboard CD.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

My PC has been freezing. Before you yell at me this is what I've tried.
?Checked hardware, no yellow ! marks
?Checked memory...all 6 scans 2 passes...nada.
?Checked drivers...diagnostic came up empty handed
?turned off startups...disabled windows services...nothing
?Defraged, disc cleanup, reverted to an earlier state for windows...none helped
?attempted to change Anti Virus Programs since Avira & Mcafee caught nothing...
now I can't install AVG because Mcafee is still present somehow...although
I couldn't uninstall it the traditional way...I googled and found links from threads that led
me to the uninstall tool...which I ran and rebooted...it's no longer in the uninstall options..but
AVG still says it can't Install because of McAfee.

I'm basically posting this now..because I don't see any fixes different than the ones I've already tried.
Can anyone help. I did go through some of the rules and if I broke any of them in this post...I appologize. I'm in safe mode now and my screen size sucks typing this too. Thanks. I'm glad
I was able to get this typed before my PC froze again.

Fragmentation isn't really a malware issue. It is just a natural occurance that happens over time. XP has a built-in defragmenter and there are many 3rd party disk-defragmenters. It is good to defragment a drive occasionally but unless the disk is heavily fragmented and the free disk space is less than about 10% of the drive there will probably not be a noticible performance improvement. The 2 files that will have the biggest impact from fragmentation are the swap file and the Master File Table which can only be defragmented with 3rd party defragers. NTFS file systems handle file fragmentation better than the old FAT system found on older operating systems like Win98 so an acasional defrag with the built-in XP utility should be Ok.

Cheers.

I run a Dell 550mhz with 128mb ram,
Computer runs extremely slow and hangs.
ZoneAlarm was NOT RESPONDING, so I removed it.
Internet Explorer and Mozilla errors - NOT RESPONDING

So....
I ran SPYBLASTER
I ran SPYBOT SEARCH AND DESTROY
I ran AD-AWARE
I ran REGISTER PATROL
I stopped almost all programs from beginning at startup.
I removed programs not used.
I defragmented the disk.
I removed ZoneAlarm, as it seemed to be part of the problem (NOT RESPONDING).

But now the slowness has returned so....

I ran Hijackthis, and here's the log:

Hello......
Just to clarify, you have only 128MB of memory? What operating system do you have? Also, you most definitely need an anti-virus program at all times.

Edit: Sorry I just saw you have WinXP for an OS.

I noticed that my firewall settings were set to OPEN/ALWAYS/EVERYONE (essentially).  I thought, "That can't be right...that's not safe at all",
So I disabled/blocked about half of my incoming rules.   Which was immediately changed back by an unscheduled update less than an hour later.
I made screen shots of my firewall settings.  *Windows Remote Management is set to YES  PUBLIC ALLOW  SYSTEM  ANY TCP and ANY /ANY /ANY.
Peer to peer collaboration has the same settings, specifying %System...% as the part of my PC that is open to the public.  (And yes, I'm sure these are the default settings, I wiped and reinstalled offline. If you close or block your ports, they will
be overridden in minutes (including the ones marked "No Override". 

I downloaded Spybot 2.5 which detected backdoor knocking on SAM, and attempts to logon without a password.  Defender did not have a problem, as elevated permissions, impersonation, persistent logon attempts using alternate credentials is business as
usual for WIN 10.
Further, all of the choices I was given regarding how  to receive updates/reboot times/and which apps can access my personal data (pictures/docs  -  webcam/mic) are set to "**** yeah!"
So, basically, Windows 10 is a GYN is the front, and a back port Proctologist.
Anyone else think this odd?
Is there a solution...or...?

Hi friends,
I am an exclusive FF user (except for MS sites ).
I found a very good extension for FF which I would like to share with you. Its called Flashblock 1.5.1. Go to Mozilla homepage>extensions and search with above name. You will find it.
It stops all the flash materials on an webpage and gives you an option to allow it to play it or not. As most of the flash materials are AD so it also increases your security.
My yahoo pages are loading lightning fast now. Try it & LoL.

A:Suggested Extention for FF

Thanks src. Another one you might want to install for extra security is NoScript which blocks all javascript, and has an option to block flash as well. It puts an icon in the status bar which you can click to allow java/flash for a particular site if required.

Not sure if I have put this in the right place but here goes
1. Browser Choice. In Europe we get this option. But when it is taken (I stayed with IE10) the Browser Choice App remains and I cant get rid of it. There seems to be no means to uninstall it. Tried various sites on the web nothing works.
2. In the useful tutorial on backup using W7 recovery in Control Panel there is an option to backup system image to an external drive. I have one @1Tb but it starts then says cant proceed drive full - when it clearly is not. Any ideas? Is it not possible to backup the system image to SkyDrive ?
3. I do not use the Start Screen (Metro) as such but do put into it useful stuff that I need at odd times eg Administrative Tools. There seems to be no way to resize or recolour the tiles apart from "large" or "small". This is a nuisance as it gets too big to fit the screen. I found a site on the web that says it does this but my Rapport tells me it is unsafe so I have not tried it.
4. Is there a way to sort a block on the start screen(Metro) alphabetically without dragging tiles around one at a time.
5. A tutorial on each of these would be grand. I have found tutorials truly useful generally.
Thanks

Hello, I've been lurking on these forums for a while, and decided to finally register and add a few of my thoughts on software here. There are some excellent threads on good software around this part of the forum, but as always I have some favorites of my own.

Here's my list of useful (free) things; It's not a COMPLETE list, see the stickies for that.. Some of the things I'll list here are alternatives to suggested software in other threads, I'll try to give a brief comment on why I prefer one over another.

NKProds nCleaner - While ccleaner does a good job, it has messed things up for me a number of times. nCleaner hasn't caused any problems at all for me (yet). It does a wonderful job of cleaning up (both disk and registry), and also includes some basic tweaking. The UI is a huge improvement over the really unintuitive ccleaner, and is definetely a better choice for inexperienced users (I recommend it for everyone though, regardless of level of expertise).

PeaZip - It looks better than 7-zip, unpacks TONS of formats and has a native x64 binary... Nothing else to say.

HotSwap! - Safely remove eSATA drives (and other stuff if you choose).... Yes, it needs to be done.

Serious Samurize - Widgets on steroids, there's nothing more customizable. It's not made to be simple though, so expect to fiddle about ALOT if you want something unique.

There goes... Just my few cents.

A:Some suggested software that does a great job.

FWIW, 7Zip also has native 64bit binaries as well....

But I do like Pea, almost as much as I still love me WinRAR....

Nice to know.
I use it exclusively, mostly because I don't see a reason to use anything else at this point. I'm not going to pay for something just for the feeling that "paid is always better".
I have it on my moms netbook(Win7), my laptop(Win7), my kids pc(XP), and my old pc(Vista) which my kid uses when he's at my place. Not once has there ever been a problem.

Hey everyone.

I used to have an old wifi but it's that old the software I used to use to set it up doesn't even run under 7. This isn't really my problem though since I was pretty sure I'd have to update anyway. It's unlikely it would be able to repeat a signal from an N router let alone use anything better then WEP.

Anyway. I was looking for suggestions on getting a good repeater. I saw this one: Best Wireless Repeater | Wifi Repeaters Boosters and Range Extenders which looks pretty good. I've never used anything from Amped before though so I'm kind of tempted to go for a Netgear or something instead.

I was also considering buying a router and setting DD-WRT up but I don't know how they compare?

Cheers for any advice.

A:Suggested WiFi Repeater?

I can't say I have heard of Amped before (besides the drink...), but at work we have had good success with Hawking range extenders.

OK so the cheap DLink DI-524 I bought gives me BSOD's.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a cheap wireless router that works with x64. It will be hardwired to the Vista x64 machine and I'll use my XP laptop and PSP for the wireless link.

Thanks...

I'm pretty stingy with my cash, but still like to play games. So, I was wondering what the best video card would be for me. I was thinking of getting an ATI Radeon 9200 128MB, but if anyone has any better suggestions I would be happy to hear them. I'm only looking to spend around $60.

My computer only has a PCI slot, just for reference.
If any links could be posted to good deals on a good video card, that would be great.

Hi, so when my computer was upgraded to Windows 10 Internet Explorer was updated as well. I want to know how to delete a suggested site on the new version of Internet Explorer. I had copied and pasted a website into a new tab and now every time I start

Hi, I had a post from another part of the forum when I thought it was just firefox I was having trouble with. Then I was getting problems elsewhere too. If it's an infection it must have happened pretty fast. I reinstalled firefox and the problem persisted there, but like I said weird behavior on other browsers too and also had computer screen freeze and make weird beeping sounds twice and I shut it down and restarted. Here was my original post:
"I don't really know if it was a hard disk or a hard drive or if it's related to the problem in any way. I've also had a cat walk across the keyboard a few dozen times. Could've been that! Anyway, I had my laptop hard disk or drive go bad and all my info get wiped after only a few months with this new Dell. No sign it was going it just went out of nowhere. First time this happened to me out of nowhere. I lost a CRAPLOAD, people! Anyway, I reinstalled firefox which is my favorite browser and now it's acting very strangely and I can't seem to figure it out.

Whether it is a cat-astrophe issue, malware, adware or combination of both....you can do some scans to help find out. Start with looking for malware and adware.
 
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.

Hello,

I started having a BSoD Loop occur this morning.
I built this computer about one month ago.
I actually was having a similar issue with my prior PC

The only hardware that is the same in the tower is the RAM and the Power Supply.
It has taken a long time to be able to compile this information between crashes.

Most Common BSoD ERRORS:
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (Was the first I received)
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA

I have several warning events for:
The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{af6ce934-2f17-

That may coincide with the crashes, i am not sure.



I ran a system restore

I ran windows update

I ran DSKCHK

I ran Driver Verifier

I have disabled fast start up

I have disabled Drivers that show up yellow in safe mode (Printer and Generic PnP Monitor)

I changed my allocated Virtual Memory/Page File size



I ran one full pass of Memtest86 with 0 errors

I then reran it with all CPUs in parallel for more passes, but it would crash in the first minute.



Prime95 instantly crashes



Thank you so much for any help you can provide,and let me know if there is anything else I can provide

I'm running a P-III/500 machine with an Abit BE6 MB using W98SE.

The MB will support up to three 256MB DIMMs for 768MB total.

I've been getting conflicting advice from salespeople as to whether it's advisable to limit W98SE to 512MB or go to 768MB.

Some say to max it out. One says W98SE has a memory leak problem above 512MB and performance will go down.

Most agreed that upgrading from my current 256MB will show a marked improvement in performance -- apps loading, resources available, less crashes due to pushing the multitasking.

Should I go to 512MB, or should I go to 768MB?

Thanks!

Joe

Hi My sons PC is crashing lots, it did not do this until he updated windows 8, however having produced a fresh w8 install it still does it, I then installed w7 as a fresh install it does the same, the diagnostic info from the crash dumps from (whocrashed) are given below, this suggests USB issues. Sometimes the computer will last an hour before it crashes others it lasts seconds. When I start it in safe mode there are no crashes.
It does this with the original MOBO chipset disks and also the latest set from gigabytes website, for both w8 and w7
Is it software or hardware processor or Mobo, any help gratefully given. Would flashing the bios help?
Thanks
