Infection Or Malfunction?

Q: Infection Or Malfunction?

Hi,I've spent several days trying to figure out why my computer is running slow and has intermittent freezing. I've followed many helps for dealing with Slow Windows XP and did a lot of housekeeping/suggested maintenance. Also found out that the reason my computer all of a sudden was noisy was that the fans were full of dust. Cleaned out the computer and followed all suggestions; quieter now but still having problem. I keep getting a disk/CD symbol next to my mouse pointer and the PitStop utility said my CPU is running at 100%. I've dumped all kinds of programs at startup and running in the background. I ran a QuickScan of SuperAntiSpyware and found 100 + Tracking cookies and a couple trojans which got deleted/quarantined. I don't think Norton picked up anything when it scanned last Friday. I have tried to boot in Safe Mode to do full scans, but won't let me. I get a screen full of multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2) lines and then nothing else. Also, twice I got a Secondary drive 0 not found message. Kaspersky Webscan froze when I tried to run it.

Preferred Solution: Infection Or Malfunction?

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.)

A: Infection Or Malfunction?

Update: I checked my scan logs from Norton and the only thing weird I noticed was several modifications made by some mystery processes to Windows Startup on the 12th. These occurred from 2:11:12 to 2:14:23 pm and were made by the following programs: msopimstmp.exe, oeabpstmp.exe, msw2kpimstmp.exe, msoabpstmp.exe, hrmystmp.exe. I'm assuming some of these are microsoft, but I don't know what they are, so thought I'd mention them. The night before, Norton did pick up and remove a tracking cookie, but that was it.

after accidentally going online unprotected (by my Zonelabs security suite, latest,fully updated)
I've started having problems--
zonelabs flashed program a number of program warnings, all to the effect that "Services and Cotroller" is acting suspiciously (trying to gain access to privileged resources, trying to alter, open and/or change driver "KLM1")
--when I've refused each Services&Controller attempt, various Windows warnings have appeared ( i.e. "ScanningProcess.EXE Ordinal Not Found"...(then within the "ScanningProcess.EXE warning" box)..."the ordinal 110 could not be located in the dynamic link library SSLEAY32.dll")--
In addition, during the system scan I ran immediately following my unprotected exposure,
the scan malfunctioned, forcing "vsmon.exe", zonelabs main virus ident app, I believe--to close, ending scan...

What is KLM1?
what's "NvCplDaemon"-(O4)

thanks much

MY LAPTOP IS POSSESSED I TELL YA!!! Yesterday something went seriously wrong. My computer shut off by itself while I was surfing the web and wouldn't start up. It tried to start up by itself few times but shut back down right away. ok so I happened to spill a few drops of liquid on the keyboard (nothing that hasn't happened before) but this time my machine went berzerk 10 minutes after. I turned it on a few hours later and it started up fine. A volume control on my screen appeared for the first time and didn't go away no matter what i did, even after a full system recovery. It went away after I fiddled with my sound card properties. Just when one problem seemed to be resolved, another more insane one appeared. Every time I turn on my wireless connection with the click of a button on my computer, thousands and thousands of browser windows start opening by themselves. SCARY! I THOUGHT MY COMPUTER WILL EXPLODE! No home page on any of them, just the "Page cannot be displayed" on IE7. Once the wireless connection is turned on, i can't turn it off like i could before with the same button that turns it on. The only way is to unplug my power cord to stop the madness and turn the wireless off. When I connect to the internet via ethernet cable, everything works fine. But as soon as I hit that wireless button, all hell breaks loose in different ways. Another way is the keyboard stops working and when I connect an external keyboard, the letter J types itself...

I have windows 7 my laptop freezes a lot after running for long time or after hibernation. when i click on a program it'll stop responding right away. and then i have to reboot and it'll take forever to reboot sometimes it'll just freeze with the shutting down logo which forces to power shut it (using the power button)
also sometimes the screen like turns off an back on in like a blink of an eye shutting the internet off right away for like 30 seconds or more and then it does the same thing bringing the internet back on again.At one point it stopped booting completely. it just froze with the "starting windows" logo and i ran a hard drive test that an HP operator asked me to run and it failed. so they told me ur hard drive is failing. but then two days later i tried booting it again and it worked .. but the same problems are there. im not sure if its a software or hardware problem. it would be very much appreciated if u can guide me through a fix to this mess. Thanks a million!

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....
?? CHROME, AVAST, FIREFOX all show DEP (permanent). All others DISABLED.....
?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).
I do have Administrator privileges but thought I noticed a popup (IIRC) re two items (processes?) not functioning, CIMV2? perhaps and one other. WBEMTEST checked for DEP 3 (OptOut), verified it was set (I forget the Superclass now, under root/cimv2).
Is this a Startup issue of some kind? Something not loading? GPEDIT under XP not helpful unless DISabling access to various options.

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

Hi sunsandy4u and welcome to TSF,

Have you looked in the Task Manager to see if you have any Yellow marks by the usb hubs on the tree in the left pane? If so, that would indicate a driver problem.

My modem is usb and required a download into it for it to function properly. The software came with the modem. Also, try another usb port if you have one on your computer.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

First time I have run into a problem I could not solve myself. I have a Coby TFTV2224 LCD TV that I am using as a monitor connected by VGA, which is the only port on this emachines POS.

The problem is that no matter what settings I have in nVidia control panel, resolution, refresh, etc.. the screen blinks out and comes back like it was just turned on. The power light never goes off. even better.... the input randomly changes from VGA to component or sometimes AV or HDMI, even more rare it will work fine for a period of time then the tv will randomly mute and unmute itself.

I had thought it was a driver issue, but after installing new drivers for motherboard, chipset, graphics, it seemed to clear up only to come back, not as frequent, but still came back.

I now have a fresh install of Windows 7 with automatic updates done, and nVidia graphics drivers.
What should I do? Where should I turn?

Thanks,

Whilst cleaning the back of a computer (whilst it was on), a cable was pulled out. I've not been informed if there were any noises but apparently it was the main power chord. When the computer was turned back on, the typical black screen came up with options. Pressing any of the options led to the loading screen of windows and then froze returning eventually to the black options screen.
I've tried changing out the RAM because I thought it might have ben damaged (and would explain the computers inability to load) but because changing it didn't rectify the issue I'm a little confused. Is it the Chipset (processor which is pentium 4 intel), could it be the hard-drive?

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fixcd.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

i've never had a desktop pc broken down on me while its on, but i've had 2 desktop pcs when i was younger and they all malfunctioned whenever i had turned them off and back on again, the agonizing series of beeps when the bios boot would usually indicate a failure in hardrive or mobo...even though every componet was working fine the day before when i had turned it off. Most of my friends' desktop pcs broke in a similar manner to mine; they were all perfectly funcational, but when the next time they are turned on, something in the mobo breaks/malfunction/fries.

All components have a failure rating in MTBF .. Mean Time Between Failure .. (Measured in hours)
Why run it all the time and use up the hours ??

Probably the shortest life span components are the Fans, Hard Drive and Monitor .. (CRT or LCD backlites)
Why let it run all the time and collect more dust that means you'll have to clean it more often ..
or have something fail prematurity due to overheating.

So far .. I've had a HDD fail, Two fans and the backlites get weak in two LCD monitors.

Probably the worst culprit is the bearings in the HDD ..

Hello

My LG monitor is having a problem that has only started yesterday. After turning on my computer is works fine for about 15 minutes then goes black with no indication of it going to sleep mode or anything. I know that it is still receiving power because it has the power indicator light on. Also, when I unplug the screen from the computer and plug it back in it works fine for 15 minutes then goes completely black again.

Now last week my computer got a very bad virus and was taken in and it was removed. I got it back yesterday and this new monitor problem has started... I suspected there may be a problem with the computer itself causing this malfunction, so I plugged the screen into another computer to see what would happen and it is the same story.
