Flashing Red and white X in sys tray and constant popups

Q: Flashing Red and white X in sys tray and constant popups

I have no idea what is going on... ad-aware nor search and destroy find anything when I run them.

Popups are coming up like crazy in IE and I dont even use that proggy. I use firefox 99.9 % of the time.

I searched the net and found something called combofix.exe and ran it. That worked but the problem seems to be set on a timer and goes about a half day and viola a popup fest once again.

There are 3 icons installed on my desktop during this time

Error Cleaner
Privacy Protector
Spyware&Malware Protection

There is also a small red with white x in the system try next to the clock. It comes and goes but during the popups this thing is flashing crazy.

I ran through all 5 steps and also attached on the active scan log file from step 1.

The main txt is listed below and the extra txt is also attached per the 5 step process.

Any help is much obliged.

Preferred Solution: Flashing Red and white X in sys tray and constant popups

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.)

If hooked up to the keyboard and put it asleep the white light on the keyboard near the charging plug flashes. Thank you for any information.

I have a virus or something that puts a red flashing x in the system tray, give a million pop ups, took over my home page, sometimes shuts down my computer randomly.

I thought I took care of this about a month ago, same problem. I had symantec. I got rid of that and installed kaspersky, which found a ton of stuff (great), but not the one causing this problem. I downloaded some program after a ton of research, and that's what got rid of it for the time being. now it's back.

I don't remember what that program was. it came from a website f-secure.com or something like that. I tried to research this again, but am just finding lots of confusing posts that seem to be resolved, but I can't figure out how or why.

I have hijack this installed...i don't know if you want that or something else, so i will wait for instructions...

thank you very much

Hello everyone --

I have not got a clue about how to approach this problem, so I hope that someone out there can give me some direction.

Here's what happens: Using Outlook 2003,
(1) I open an e-mail message
(2) I hit the reply all button and begin composing a reply;
(3) I need to check a date, so I shrink the reply and the original message;
(4) I click on the Calendar tab and begin innocently clicking on various dates;
(5) THEN . . . while I am looking at the Calendar, the tray icon for my draft reply begins to blink orange in a warning fashion;
(6) THEN . . . the tray icon goes an ominous solid orange and the program freezes.

Why is this happening? Can anyone tell me why and what to do?

Thanks so much.

This all started when I tried downloading a program from a questionable site. If I were to leave my computer running all night there is six or seven pop-ups about how my computer is infected and what I need to buy to get rid of it, or there is pop-ups offering for me to get laid tonight. There are also a few casino pop-ups trying to get me to gamble. These just come up randomly when I am using the computer. There is also a flashing yellow triangle in the system tray, which if i right or left click it does the same thing, goes to a site called thespygaurd.com, to try to get me to purchase an anti-spyware program. The triangle also makes a pretty annoying little popping sound about once a minute. My homepage in Internet Explorer was changed from Google to sysprotectionpage.net and a pop-up comes up that says I have a virus, [email protected], and I should click okay to download software to uninstall it. One more thing, I have installed and ran numerous programs to try and get rid of this. I had a different problem in which a red bubble popped up from the system tray that said I was infected, but I do not remember what the icon was. One of the many programs I used got rid of that problem. I have used Ad-Aware, Ewido, Spybot S&D, Housecall, Bit Defender, and McAfee Stinger. I hope this is enough information, and I really would appreciate any help you could give me on this matter. Thank you very much in advance.Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 10:38:11 AM, ...

Help! I now have this flashing icon in my system tray ; when you click on it it brings you to a site called Anti-Vermins.com. I have tried my Norton 2005, Windows Defender and Advanced Windowcare V2 to remove it but no luck. I became so desperate I purchased XoftSpySE last night to the tune of $39.00 because they claimed they could remove it. No such luck. The only upside to all the cleaning is the computer is actually running faster.

Can you help?

I am currently using Zone Alarm's Firewall, I have Norton AntiVirus installed, and Ewido is installed with active-guard. Furthermore, I've run Stinger, AdAware, Spybot, ATF-Cleaner, RogueScan, and SmitRem.... I've tried numerous fixes, and I've also fixed several problems in HJT. I've done all of this in Safe Mode as well, and even turned off the system restore while rebooting, so that the problem wouldn't come back.. No fix I know of seems to eliminate this problem...Fortunately the problem is a little bit better than before...I now can control my web browser's startup page and it seems I've eliminated the spyware quake. I used to have uncontrollable pop-ups but those are gone. I've gotten rid of a trojan dropper and dialer. There was a triangular yellow caution sign in my system tray, associated with the popups and the Internet Explorer hijack, but that is gone now. The only thing that I can't get rid of is a little symbol in the system tray that flashes back and forth between what looks like a green handicap symbol (I honestly don't know what it's supposed to be) and a red "ban" symbol. When I hold my cursor over it it says "Virus Alert!" Every now and then red boxed messages appear telling me I am infected with spyware, trying to get me to go to a site and buy softare. In fact, it takes me to SpywareQuake.com...Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated.Here is my HJT log:Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 2:25:59 AM, on 4/15/... Read more

A:flashing white screen

Welcome elfinwood.

Just to clarify... It sounds as if you have been playing Second Life with your computer for a while, which has always worked fine, until recently, where you have this flashing screen problem? When does this problem occur? Is it after playing the game for a while or as soon as you start the game? Or does it start as soon as your turn on the computer?

If it is when you start the game, does it do it when you start other games (games that require good use of the graphics card/system)?

> When was the last time you updated your drivers?
> Have you changed anything before this started to occur, such as installing new updates?

Hi I have a lenovo g500 laptop running windows 10. It has recently started giving me a white flashing screen with bits of grey and vertical lines. It stays on and does not flicker.
I have to turn off the laptop to get the screen back to normal. Moving the screen back and forth doesn't influence it in anyway and all display drivers are up to date.
I have ran a hardware scan (with the lenovo solution center) on the graphics chip and it passed.
The graphics chip is an intel hd 4000.
What could be causing such an issue?

So recently I noticed a blinking white x in a red cricle in my system tray, and now there's 2 of them. It keeps giving me balloon messages says cpu performance affected, internet usage affected, and other times it comes up as a long rectangular popup. When I mouse over them it says malicious software removal tool. This all started after I ran windows malicious software removal tool (or what I thought was it maybe?)

I just picked up something that puts a red circle with a white X in the system tray. Now I can't bring up taskmanager or change my backgrounds. I am running Ad-Aware right now, but it hasn't found anything. I downloaded HJT and ran the log, but didn't see anything that sticks out.

I google'd for ideas on what to do, but wasn't having much luck in getting a good response. I thought I would try these forums.

I am about to head off to bed since I start work early in the morning, but I thought I would post quickly to see if anyone might respond by the time I can check in the morning.

I think that I got it figured out. A friend of mine emailed me something to try out. I download Malwarebytes and booted over into Safe Mode. Once there, I ran the scan and found several objects. I removed the objects and it seems to have cleaned up the issue.

If anyone would like me to look at anything else, please let me know and I will do so when I get home from work tomorrow. I will check the thread during the day to see if anyone posted anything.

Hi Hajira,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I am sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with display as there are white circles.
Try to update the display drivers and check for the issue.  
Connect to the external monitor and check if there are circles in the monitor.
As you have also mentioned about the cursor try to reduce the sensitivity and update the touchpad drivers.
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.

Hello MikeJust to let you know you are not alone. If you got a resoltuion please can you let me know. My experience is: I have experienced a simlar issue with my IdeaCenter 700 for the last couple of months, just out of warranty of course! Blobs keep appearing on the screen that take over control of the mouse, act like right clicks and especially then on web browsers start acting as selections - not good when trying to do internet ordering or banking !  This can happen when the PC is initially booted up making it difficult on occasions to enter the password.  I have tried a number of remedies but none successful so any help much appreciated. I have :- used the PC Reset function to re-install the Windows 10 operating system whilst retaining personal files - no difference. - checked the drivers - all are the latest version. - run the full Lenovo hardware scan - nothing identified- run full scans by AVG, Malwarebytes and CClean - no viruses found- used a USB plug-in mouse rather than the wireless mouse   Any other ideas out there ?

A:Solved: Virus Alert Flashing Icon in system tray....need help desperatly..Pls

Read other 16 answers

Hi All --Last weekend I caught what I believe was a case of mssearchnet + nvctrl and perhaps spyfalcon. Using the advice of this site (awesome, thanks!) and some others, I've managed to be back to normal with one really annoying exception: the "Virus Alert!" flashing icon and occassional message ("Your computer is infected! Critical system error! blah blah blah"). The icon is the green wheelchair icon flashing over to the "ban" icon - red circle, single red line running through it. Interesting to note that no link appears to be functioning in the pop-up box. It's just flashing and popping up every so often. I've gone through many other posts on this and have run the following (in safe mode as well as normal boot mode): ad-aware, spybot, ewido, panda, mcafee, stinger. After every re-boot, I'm still greeted by the unwelcome flashing icon. I disabled system restore early in the process as well. Can someone take a look at my HiJack and SmitFraud logs?

My computer will not fully start up because it always gets stuck on a flashing white line on the top left corner. I have been having issues with my video card recently (ati radeon 4850) where a red light will go on and my monitor will go black therefore making me have to hard reboot my computer. I do not know what this red light means so if someone could help me that we would be awesome as well. This line I was stuck on happened after one of the red light issues so I hard rebooted and that's where I'm stuck now. I am trying to reformat now and it is telling me that no device drivers were found and make sure the installation media contains the right drivers, which makes no sense to me because that has never happened to me, please help.

My S10-3t (new almost exactly a year ago) is not booting. Please note that when I got it I upgraded the RAM to 2gb and the Hard Drive to a 500gb drive that has not failed me. I am using Linux, and threw out all the backup stuff, so that is not an option. The problem is that the battery indicator light is flashing orange and white at the same time (a mix of both colors), and it does this when the battery is in and out. The AC adapter works fine, since the netbook is getting power from it when the battery is out. If you need more info then tell me and I will provide it. TL;DR: The computer does not boot and my battery indicator light is flashing two colors at the same time, no matter if the battery is in or not. The problem is not with the AC adapter. EDIT: Update below.

A:S10-3t Battery light flashing White and Orange

Well, it was like this for a week. Now, after I got home from a movie, it was on (power light and battery indicator were solid white), but the screen was not on. So I took it partially apart (to the point I can access the connection between the sceen and MB), and tried again. It worked. I have no Idea what happend, but any suggestions would help future people with a similar problem.

I'm sorry for the lack of any technical terms used to describe this but I'm a complete novice with computers.

I was watching a video when some warning messages popped up saying something like harmful stuffs trying to access your computer, then it restarted. Now it starts up, goes to the motherboard thing, goes past that then hits a black screen with a little white line flashing in the top left corner.

I've tried to use F8 to enter the safe mode start up but when I press F8 it comes up with



I tried the SATA option twice, first time the white line vanished so it was just a black screen and then it restarted. Second time it just went back to the screen with the white flashing line.

Any help in sorting this out would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm having an issue with most of my games. For some unknown reason the programs will flash white and say that they are not responding, this only seems to happen if I use my mouse and click on the actual window. Considering most of the games this happens with require the mouse to use, this can get really irritating.

Another problem, which I'm sure this is related to the flashing windows, is when I click out of a game. It doesn't show up, it will still be in the taskbar but I will be unable to play it.

This problem doesn't work with any other programs (i.e. Google Chrome, Steam).

If anyone has a solution for this, that would be brilliant!

Thanks in advance!

I am having graphics problems with my IBM Intellistation Z Pro desktop. The graphics card is a NVIDIA Quadro4 980 XGL. Every time I try to open a game, or even Google Earth, I get white and yellow specks flashing all over the screen, the computer freezes up, and I have to reboot it. I have reinstalled the drivers, and cleaned the dust out of the computer, but neither seemed to fix the problem. My operating system is XP. Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated.

Hello, Please try hard reset first :  Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for a full minute.  Plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the battery out for the moment ) and see if the notebook will start.  You might want to take a look at this document: Battery Does not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge. It suggests troubleshooting steps to determine if the problem is the battery, the power supply, or the system board.You might find the answer to your battery/power issue as you work through the steps in that HP support article. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee
