Preferred Solution: butt exe has stopped working

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.)

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

P.S. my router is a linksys WRT300N Wireless-N Broadband router
 

A:Wireless router suddenly stopped working (Lights still working though)

what devices do you have connected the router anything else wireless
make and model of the pc

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?
if not
try connecting directly to the modem and see if that works OK

we need to see some details, which will mean you need to copy to a working PC

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

I have had a rather large problem over the last couple of days. It started earlier in the week, when one drive stopped working. Not a big problem, I've had drives fail before. 4 disks, so i can handle one less for a little while, i though. Not so though, while still waiting for my new drive, using my computer like usual (with less load on unit D) i suddenly start getting write-errors to D:, and the Intel Matrix Storage Console lists it as Stopped Working instead of Degraded. Nothing changed except for the status of the Volume, all the disks read the same as before, fully functional.

I have very little experience with these sort of matters. This is the first time I've lost a drive where i might lose data as well, and i have pretty much no idea where to go from here. I've tried to replace the faulty disk with another 500GB drive, but the RAID-setup in BIOS just tells me there isn't enough space, and the Console in Windows places the new drive as a Non-RAID drive. I can mark it as reserve, but that seems to be all i can do with it.

I'm not, hopefully, asking for miracles. I have just two things that i really need to retrieve from the Volume, my Firefox sessions (saved in a separate folder at the root of the drive), and my Thunderbird mail, (stored in their standard location, as my whole Windows-profile is on that drive). Everything else i can get again. (Well, not really, i have stuff stored up from 8-10 years back, from people who has withdrawn from t... Read more

Okay, this is the weirdest problem I've ever hard with computers. Here's what happened:

1. I had a few years old Pentium D 2,8GHz processor running on Asus P5VDC-X mobo. PQI 566MHz DDR2 and GF 7600GS 256mb PCI-E, 350W power.
2. I updated the mobo to Asus P5L-MX to support faster PCI-E cards. Everything worked fine, despite the processor ran too hot (58C on high use)
3. Because of the overheating I replaced the thermal paste but it had no effect on the temperature.
4. I thought I used too much paste so I replaced the paste again.
---
5. Bang, no video when I turn on the computer. I tried taking off everything part by part but nothing worked. It didn't work even when I only had processor and used the integrated graphics port. Tried resetting the bios too.
6. Nothing worked so I put back the old P5VDC-X and it worked like charm.
7. I thought it was logical that the problem was caused because of the mobo so I bought a new one, Asrock G31M-S.
8. No video... Did the same steps to this one too. It also had integrated gfx but it didn't work either.
9. The old P5VDC-X still works.

So I have no idea what's causing the problem. Is it the CPU? Mobo? PSU? RAM? I have no speaker on my case so I can't hear any beeps, but it won't start loading the OS from the hardrive and my USB mouse won't turn on. Tried using a differen't monitor too.

The main point is why it stopped working suddenly on new mobo's but still works with the old P5VDC-X? A... Read more

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

I'm running XP Pro SP2 and all has been very smooth for weeks. I am connecting through a router and also have Avast antivirus installed and of course using the new and improved windows firewall to boot. I checked my registry and found no sign of blaster. The only thing I did that may or may not be related to my problem is attempting to create a new partition on my C: drive to install Mandrake Linux. I studied all the instructions and I think I did everything correctly but when I was in the finall stages of the Linux install I think I should have opted to install the bootloader on the MBR and I think as a result I wasn't able to boot Mandrake. It would just show that it is preparing the local computer to load Mandrake linux but nothing would happen, even if I waited like 20 minutes. Anyway, since I realized that I would be best to re-install Linux I also discovered my version was 9.2 and 10.1 was already out. So I decided I would delete the partitions created and re-install Mandrakes newest version. During the partition making process I was careful to stop all other apps from running and because that included my antivirus protection I also disabled my ethernet card. After the whole Mandrake install trial and error I was able to boot into windows xp normally. So my plan was to delete temp files and any other junk I could get rid of to free HD space, then to defrag, then to creat a new partition using partition magic and install the new Mandrake.

I'm getting killed over here by viruses...supposedly I ran Prevx CSI and it says I havea faulty SVHOST file. I have two copies of Windows XP Pro installed on 32 bit and another 64 bit.

WINDOWS XP PRO 64 BIT ISSUE
Recently I was doing some work in my 64 bit OS trying it out and all of a sudden the start toolbar is completely unable to be used. and has halfway disappeared. Mean I can still see it, but there is no start menu button when I right click it comes up with the normal list, but "unlock toolbars" is unselectable.

I did do quite a few edits to my system and not sure if I created this problem or not is there a registry or windows setting that does this?

WINDOWS XP PRO 32 BIT ISSUE
This is the major issue at the moment. My computer is acting as normal except for a few programs don't work any more. One is Zend Studio which is a java based program although I created a new account and start it using that account properties meaning "right click" - run as different account and it works. Strange I know.
Another problem as I stated above is my SVHOST file is posing as a real system process or its been edited in some way.

I do have a outdated firewall that I believe is great Sygate and I used AVG on this system. On the 64 bit I was using Avast and Ghost Firewall.

Here is my Hijackthis log for the 32 bit OS. This is beyond me at the moment I think I could figure it out, but my resources and time are limited figure I would consult the experts.

Hi,I previously had a post in the security forum. Broni the Bear tried to help me, but he can't seem to find anything wrong based on the logs requested. So, let me fill you in on what happened:1. Started seeing Google results redirected.2. Followed this kid's "Get rid of Google Redirect Virus" on Youtube. Cleared my DNS and tried the TDSSKillers. No results now, but it's still there.3. Tried Malware Bytes and Avira Anti-Virus. Malware found some unrelated things. Avira found a bunch of trojans, but I think they respawn after delete. Upon starting my computer now, I always get spam-notices from Avira that "svchost.exe", which is infected with a Trojan, is trying to get access. 4. Broni the Bear couldn't find a solution for me. Original thread here.Can you help me out? I've been dealing with viruses and trojans since I was in high school, but this is one that simply, absolutely stumps me. By the way, now, there is like a 1min30sec lag when my computer starts. It'll say there's a trojan detected, and then my taskbar will be frozen.

This is the message of evil that plagues me:

"[program name] - Unable to locate component"
"This application has failed to start because netmjppotd.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I receive this message (sometimes twice) for every process that loads from before the login screen, to every process that autostarts, and every program I use. Clicking "ok" takes care of the box and (sometimes) the program will start. Curiously, when I tried to run SUPERAntiSpyware, clicking "ok" on three hundred of the messages did not stop them from coming.

AV scans have named the virus as trojan psw.generic7.PLY and trojan psw.generic7.AUZH. After the first scan I deleted the culprit file, which was a traditional Chinese medicine noun dictionary (I cannot remember the exact filename). I believe the only incarnations of those files are now in system restore under these addresses:

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{1BAFFABB-F7AA-4EAB-AD2D-5625C274817F}\RP747\A0147613.exe

OKay - I thought I removed virtumonde back in December - all was good - but I'm back infected.

Symptoms include not being able to run a full virus scan to completion without a crash - awarealert se 2007 has detected the files and registry entries. HOwever. adwarealert can not perform a deep scan without crashing - I can not even reinstall mcafee without a scan and Mcafee crashes too.

I've tried deleting the registry files - but they come back so there is a hidden component somewhere.

I'm stuck - I can identify some of the files but, not all of the op. processes. Remove Vundo and Vundofix crash my computer too. When I thought I was smooth sailing in December - both of those apps worked just fine.

Hi all

Can anyone offer any assistance please??? I have Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005. When it ran it picked up Java_bytever.q (dummy.class and blackbox.class). It couldn't deal with them. I updated Trend and tried again. I copy the path and using the search facility of WindowsXP I searched for the blackbox.class & dummy.class. Search found them and I deleted them from the system and dumped the recycle bin. After checking the virus logs for Trend, it seems I've been infected a couple of times with the same virus but with a different letter at the end. The last time was java_bytever.a and this time with java_bytever.q
I am getting fed up with this problem popping up , but I'm not sure if it's linked with Sun Java that I have on my system. After reading some of the threads here, one tip I got was to run Hijack this and save the log.

I'm getting killed over here by viruses...supposedly I ran Prevx CSI and it says I havea faulty SVHOST file. I have two copies of Windows XP Pro installed on 32 bit and another 64 bit.

WINDOWS XP PRO 64 BIT ISSUE
Recently I was doing some work in my 64 bit OS trying it out and all of a sudden the start toolbar is completely unable to be used. and has halfway disappeared. Mean I can still see it, but there is no start menu button when I right click it comes up with the normal list, but "unlock toolbars" is unselectable.

I did do quite a few edits to my system and not sure if I created this problem or not is there a registry or windows setting that does this?

WINDOWS XP PRO 32 BIT ISSUE
This is the major issue at the moment. My computer is acting as normal except for a few programs don't work any more. One is Zend Studio which is a java based program although I created a new account and start it using that account properties meaning "right click" - run as different account and it works. Strange I know.
Another problem as I stated above is my SVHOST file is posing as a real system process or its been edited in some way.

I do have a outdated firewall that I believe is great Sygate and I used AVG on this system. On the 64 bit I was using Avast and Ghost Firewall.

Here is my Hijackthis log for the 32 bit OS. This is beyond me at the moment I think I could figure it out, but my resources and time are limited figure I would consult the experts.

Most of us have heard the rumor that you can snatch some unused gigs from a hard drive.
You can but at what expense. I have a drive that was dying, matter of the fact it was the second one that I had tried. I got both of them from a guy I know that scraps computers and fixes what he can for charities.
The drives would pass in one of my machines, but not the one I wanted it for. I figured, what the hell its a $10.00 drive I am going to try it.
The picture I am attaching ( disk 1) is a 40 gigabyte drive after the snatch of the extra gigs, there is definitely more showing but partition magic now has the whole thing marked as bad. Waaah!
I am running chk disk on it to see if any of it will be good, but I have 3 partitions to check. I don't know if I'll get back tonite with any results, but I'll let you guys know what happens.
This disk started with bad sectors, and maybe that is why the whole thing is showing bad now, but I wouldn't risk this on a disk that wasn't headed for the scrap heap anyhow. LOL.

OK, Update. The drive is toast, but it really was before anyway. I guess I could try to low level it, but in all reality it most likely isn't worth it.
I just had a drive I was going to toss anyways and I had heard about the "unused gigs" rumor floating around the internet.

I posted this on another forum but it's been quite a few days and no response. Hopefully I'll have more luck here...

Also, there's someone else on the forums that has the same problem (it's how I located the forums). However, since his computer is different, and his problem is slightly different, I feel I need to make a topic for myself. Another thing is that my computer is working far better than his and I've been able to do scans such as GMER and Catchme.

Nothing will get rid of the virus and my antiviruses aren't detecting it either. I've tried antivirus.com free scan, Symantec Antivirus, and AVG (all fully updated). I've also run scans with Ad-aware and Spybot, neither of which pick anything up.

The virus likes to do several things:

- install spyware, adware, and other viruses
- randomly renames .exe files I run to other names, then give itself the name of that exe file
For example:
winamp.exe goes to winame .exe--it still opens as usual but takes a lot longer because the viral file which is now winamp.exe has to refer Windows to winame .exe so I won't notice it's not running (at least that's what I assume it does!)
How do I know that winamp.exe is the viral file? Well it doesn't end when I close Winamp (the other process does) and it's a tiny file in comparison to the real winamp.exe.

A:Pain in the butt virus

Well im not very good at decyphering log files but I can tell you that in the many many virus/spyware removals that ive done theres been very few that I couldnt get rid of using a combination of spyware doctor and spysweeper. Im pretty sure spysweeper still has trials on the internet that will remove but I know spydoctor requires purchase before removal. If you do decide to go with either Id say spyware doctor is the better or the 2, run it in safe mode first then try another scan in regular mode. Also you can google other helpful tools such a smitrem which is handy at removing a few that are hard to get rid of.

I have Microsoft Messenger Installed on my computer (my son uses it, I don’t). It seems that when im online, Messenger is active because I keep getting little “hello” messages from people in his contact list. How do I disable this? Read on......

The annoying part is that as far as I can see, Messenger is not activated because it doesn’t show up in the Systray. Now I know you are going to tell me to turn off the “Launch Messenger when Windows Starts’ and “Allow messenger to run in background’ features in Messenger’s options….but I have done that already. So im at a loss how to stop running in the background.

Thanks as always.

First of all, a big thanks to any and all involved with this great site.

I've been fighting some whacky variant of wwwcoolsearch for many, many days now with little success.

1. SpyBot Search and Destroy finds several wwwcoolsearch entries, but is unable to clean them. Here is a picture of the SpyBot results that will not successfully clean:


[img=http://img74.exs.cx/img74/7222/98-spybot.th.jpg]

2. After booting up in Safe Mode, I ran Kaspersky anti-virus program. It cleaned out several downloader trojans.

3. Still in Safe Mode, I ran the latest CWShredder program. It removed a file called CWS.Bootconf.

4. Still in Safe Mode, I ran Spy Bot Search and Destroy. It ran clean and found no wwwcoolsearch entries.

5. I ran Ad-aware SE and cleaned out its findings.

6. I restarted my machine in regular mode, and the wwwcoolsearch components reappear (UGH!!)... and I continue to get pop-ups, etc.

I'm at the end of my ideas... I have read your "Read Me First" entry in this board and have complied.

I have done the following:

1. Configured the latest version of Ad-aware SE per your instructions.
2. Ran Ad-aware scan and cleaned all findings
3. Rebooted machine
4. Ran virus check at housecall.trendmicro.com
5. Unhid file extensions and made all system folders visible
6. Ran the latest version of Hijackthis
7. Ran Hijack_This_Analyzer

Here is the resulting LOG:
