Auto play popping up constantly

Q: Auto play popping up constantly

Every few seconds auto play pops up and immediately vanishes again. It's very annoying, to the point where I can barley use my computer, (I posted this from another computer.) The drive responsible says recovery H, H is my USB but there is nothing plugged in there. The Auto play fixer isn't for Vista 64 bit. I don't want to simply stop auto play as I like it when it works properly. I don't seem to have a windows restore point either. Here is my Hijack This log file. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking.

Preferred Solution: Auto play popping up constantly

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: Auto play popping up constantly

You might want to try a Clean Boot troubleshooting procedure to hopefully isolate an offending application. Run it for both Services and Startup items.

Another thing you can try:

Download the free Process Explorer.

Run it and click Find.

Click Find handle or DLL...

Search for \device\harddisk.

See if any of the search results might have a reason to be accessing the USB drive.

Every few seconds auto play pops up and immediately vanishes again. It's very annoying, to the point where I can barley use my computer, (I posted this from another computer.) The drive responsible says recovery H, H is my USB but there is nothing plugged in there. The Auto play fixer isn't for Vista 64 bit. I don't want to simply stop auto play as I like it when it works properly. I don't seem to have a windows restore point either. I have done everything I can think of. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking.

You can try the FixIt at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967715 , scroll down to How to disable or enable all Autorun features in Windows 7 and other operating systems.

A:Auto play popping up constantly

For security reasons, auto-play is not a good idea. There are infections that specifically take advantage of flaws in the system.

You should also enable recovery points, it can be a life-saver if something goes wrong.

You may want to try disabling it and then re-enabling it for specific drives or types of files to see if that will help with your issue:

Hi

I am looking a way to play a sound file, in this instance WAV file constantly after boot up or login

I have disabled windows sound login and added nnnn.WAV in the startup folder.

It plays and loops fine but pops up with the Windows Media Player, in this case.

I want it to continue playing but silent mode without Windows Media Player popping up.

I have seen HTML TAGS to do it, maybe do it that way and exec it from bat or vbs file on startup of

pc/laptop

Thanks in advance
 

A:Play sound file constantly after boot or login constantly

If you cant find a better way, maybe rename the standard login sound as mmm.old and replace it with your wav file, then re-enable standard windows sounds.

I would like to completely disable auto run / auto play in Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7, and I cannot find a way to do so. I've searched the web endlessly, and there are lots of suggestions, but nothing works. I have disabled every type of auto run / auto play I can find, but if Windows Media Player is open and I insert a flash drive, CD, or DVD, whatever I'm playing is interrupted by what was inserted even if it's not media. Just a plain, blank flash drive does this.

Has anyone else been able to figure this out?

RELEVANCY SCORE 53.6

I don't know what may have started this, but kaspersky kept telling me that svchost.exe was performing a suspicious action trying to inject something into winlogon.exe. It asked me to allow/deny, I denied, and it kept repeating. Eventually I ran a scan and detected that "smarthook.dll" contained a trojan. I used kaspersky to remove it, and downloaded a clean copy of the .dll and put it in my system32 folder.

Now I am receiving the classic:

svchost.exe:
"The instruction at "0x7588bba5" referenced memory at "0xfede1500". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program"

Only this pops up every 5 seconds about 6 times and then stops, and randomly will continue this pattern.

I have attached 2 logs, one is current <taken today> the other I just happen to log a few days ago for the hell of it (before I noticed any errors). I don't know if.. comparing will help I just want to provide all info I have.

~Thanks!

[edit]
**Additional: Just ran AVG Anti-Rootkit Beta and it detected system32/userinit.exe as a "Hidden Application"

extra info: sometimes when the svchost error pops up, my taskbar at the bottom changes to the old grey style and not the windows xp style.

Also: included a screenshot (edited for size).

System Info:
AMD Athlon 64 processor 3500+, 1 GB RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe MOBO

A:svchost constantly popping up

nobody responding, so I'm trying to help myself. A couple things I've noticed
1) in my list of services, there is a service named "Asctcgwto" set to disabled. This brings up nothing in google.
2) After turning on my computer, I type "at" in the console and it responds with "The service has not been started." I use the at command fairly often.
3) I type "net localgroup" and it tells me that the workstation service has not been started. So I start it.... I Don't know why it isn't already started, (it's set as "Automatic" but was stopped).

The problem is getting worse because from the moment I click login, it brings up multiple svchost.exe errors and takes an exceptionally longer amount of time to fully log in.

One of the CA security center components keeps installing when I log on. This prevents me from uninstalling anything or installing anything new. Because it keeps installing (or is just installing), I can't even try to uninstall it because well, it's installing!

Hi and thanks in advance for any and all help received. I would also, in all fairness, wish to inform anyone concerned that you are currently reading the words of quite possibly the most computer illiterate human being in the free world. Having said that, I will attempt to explain my problem.
My computer has been becoming increasingly slower over the last several months. I have been dealing with/ignoring this problem until the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back began appearing on the computer screen yesterday. I am receiving this official looking warning on my computer that keeps popping up constantly with every action I attempt. The warning says:
SYSTEM ERROR
Your computer was infected by unknown trojan
It's dangerous for your system! ( critical files can be lost !)
Click to download the antispyware program to clean your system (recommended)

From what Ive read on your site and others, I am assuming this is an attempt to get me to download even more trouble than what I am currently experiencing. I almost goofed up and downloaded it when it first popped up. In fact I clicked on the ok button but thankfully was warned that it was an unrecognized site and didnt have a valid signature or something to that effect (see, I told you I was computer illiterate) and I cancelled the attempt to download.

I followed all the other steps in your instructions. I had already downloaded the Windows Service Pack 2 a long time ag... Read more

I recently had a problem with a constant popping sound and started a thread here for help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1400691It helped me identify the source of the sound. It was suggested I post here to see if an infection is at the root of my problem.To sum up, I was hearing an almost constant bubble popping sound which ended up in fact being the Windows XP Balloon Tip Sound. After some trial and error with the advice given I found my registry had been changed to not show the balloons. Once I changed it back I began receiving the following balloon - "IP Protection Infection Detected" from Malwarebytes. Many IP's have shown up from various spots on the globe and it was suggested perhaps this forum could help me find if an infection on my PC is "calling out" to these IP's known to be associated with malware, etc.The people on the other forum were awesome and helped me get this far. If anyone can help from here it would be greatly appreciated!

I have Windows 10 and everything is running ok. Then, yesterday, I ran Windows Update and Update installed THREE updates....

KB3881449, KB3881488, KB3081452

It seems to be a NEW and BAD HABIT of Microsoft NOT to give us any details on what these updates do to our operating systems, what problems they solve, what features they provide or take away or what they modify. It would certainly be helpful in trying to diagnose a nasty problem that develops immediately, doesn't it? I don't like this new attitude at Microsoft of "we will run your computer and you will like it". Anyway, after updating and rebooting, I immediately started having a problem with the new Microsoft Edge Browser. It is now popping up on me without being asked to. This problem started immediately after I installed the updates and I DID NOTHING ELSE on my computer after rebooting.

There are a few things I want to say here...Microsoft DID THIS to my computer. I ran an anti-virus scan and malicious software scan using ESET SECURITY SUITE 8.0 both on my computer and an external ESET Anti-Virus Scan from ESET that sits off of my computer and nothing was found.

I also got ONE OTHER ERROR, I only saw it pop up one time and here it is, attached snapshot of the Error Message attached (it says)...

A:Edge Browser is Popping Up on Me Constantly

Edge opening constantly might be malware.

Here's a link to the Malwarebytes blog that discusses those un-closeable Tech-Support-Scam pages and sites:

PSA: Tech Support Scams Pop-Ups on the Rise | Malwarebytes Unpacked
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Edge is installed as the default Windows 10 browser. Here's how to make Internet Explorer the default browser instead.

I believe the icon for Edge is automatically installed on the Taskbar. The icon looks very similar to the Internet Explorer icon.

To pin the Internet Explorer icon to the Taskbar, click on the Start Button, click All Apps,
Scroll down and click on Windows Accessories. Right Click on Internet Explorer, click on Pin To Taskbar.
The Edge icon is a darker blue. The Internet Explorer icon is lighter blue with a gold diagonal arc across it.

Right click on the Edge icon and select Unpin From Taskbar, if you wish.

Now to make Internet Explorer the default browser:

Click on the Start Button, Settings, System, Default Apps, scroll down the Choose Default Apps list and Click on Web Browser - Edge, and choose Internet Explorer from the pop-up menu. This makes Internet Explorer the default browser.

I have an HP computer with Vista, Comcast as the ISP, and McAfee (I think it was provided by Comcast).
A new problem has popped up just recently. Every few minutes, I am interrupted when the black and red McAfee flash-screen is flashed on top of whatever I am working on. That is followed by a tan-colored screen called “Comcast Security - - - powered by McAfee”. (This is the same screen that comes up if I click on the McAfee shortcut on the Desk Top.) That screen changes its contents once before it quits. The coming of these screens has nothing to do with my pushing keys. They come even if my hands are not near the keyboard and if I am not on line with Comcast.
These screens flash on for only a fraction of a second – not long enough to read what they say. But they disrupt my train of thought and, if I am typing, can cause errors in my writing. I checked my McAfee and security settings and they seemed correct. If you can suggest a way to stop this, I would appreciate it. The screens have flashed on about six times while I was writing this.

I reformatted by Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop a couple of months ago and everything's been working perfectly until a Windows SP2 update automatically installed itself last week - now Windows Media center opens up constantly (very distracting); I've removed it from services and from startup, but it continues to pop open.

Also, a funny looking file menu will sometimes pop up all by itself on the top left of the screen.

And windows or programs I have open may just close themselves out by themselves.

This has all been going on for a week and is becoming very annoying. I don't use Media Player, but understand it can't be deleted. Until I chose "Don't show me this message again" there was a message every time I booted up that said something like, "Your new hardware needs to be installed." I had not attached any new hardware.

Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want the hassle of reformatting again so soon.

Thanks,

Hi. I don't remember failing to untick a selection, but somehow this crummy Baboom Search element has come onto my computer. I have an Asus desktop computer and have Windows 8.1. and use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Every time I restart my computer Baboom's invisible extension activates setting Baboom Search to default alongside my Google default search and at this point I cannot remove it as a default program.

There is an option to disable the Baboom Search extension and doing so will make it disappear, but it does not give me the option to find and remove the extension that continually controls my search when I restart.

I have used Windows Defender, Anvi Smart Defender and an Anvi software trial that supposedly allowed one to use a Slim Toolbar option that could find an alter extensions and add-ons but it none of them found Baboom Search.

I cannot find the extension in any extension list, in the uninstall list in the Control Panel, nor can I find the name Baboom anywhere on my computer now that I have deleted a few small files with its name. Since I have been unable to see the extension I have been unable to get its App ID in order to find out what ID I could try deleting in the Roaming App Data on my computer but it feels like I have tried everything else to find and delete it.

This sounds like a driver problem. Can you check to see if Windows is fully up to date and check Device Manager for any next to your hardware.

As soon as I boot up my computer an error pops up before the password screen. It reads LoginUI.exe - Bad Image in the top bar and then gives the description:

error. C:\windows\system32\WinTrust.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I have to click okay about 20 times before i can access the main login screen. Once i login i get another error similar but instead says Skype.exe - bad image. My windows virus protection has been disabled, and I am unable to open any virus program other than Avast and S&D. I get similar errors to the others when trying to open Norton or Ad-Aware. Even while I was trying to type my topic title to this thread, errors would come up every letter I typed.

Oh and one more thing. I am receiving window's errors constantly, the most common being Windows sidebar encountered a problem and closed, windows live id encountered a problem and closed, and gusvc encountered a problem and closed. I also cannot access msn messenger and my sound has been disabled

I suspect malware, and possibly a virus, but my spyware program cannot find anything besides cookies. My antivirus program pops up saying it has deleted multiple trojans, but something is definitely going wrong!

Win Explorer keeps popping up intermittently on my PC. I suspect it to be some sort of trojan/virus but none of the scans could detect anything. Problem started after I downloaded a movie by AXXO on P2P network. Initially Win Explorer and Win Media player used to pop up automatically (not always at the same time). As I couldn't figure out the source, backed up personal files, formatted PC and re-installed XP. There after Win Media player stopped popping up but Win Explorer still pops up intermittently.

I may sound wierd but I think the Win Explorer pops up mostly when connected to the internet.

Would greatly appreciate any help to identify and fix the source of the problem.

Some program keeps popping up for a split second on my task bar every few minutes, and I can't figure out what it is.
It's pretty annoying because whenever it happens it switches the current window's focus.
It seems to happen randomly, and not at a set time interval.
I don't think it's malware... but I could be wrong. It pops ups and disappears much too quickly to identify it.
How can figure out what it is? (Btw, I'm running Windows 7.)

I know there've been many forums with a similar question that's been asked, but I think mine is something slightly different. So I bought a Dell Inspiron 15, Series 5000, just last month. All seems to be working well, except for one thing. I use Spotify & Apple Music to play music, so I can create a transition between two songs (e.g. One comes immediately off the back of the other smoothly). If a song ends on Apple Music, and I press play on Spotify, it makes a short 'pop' before the track starts and sometimes very briefly crackles all the audio in my headphones.
Another issue, is when I want to play audio from Windows Media Player, there's an even louder pop/crackle before it starts. It didn't do this on my old HP when I used to do exactly the same thing. Does anyone have any fixes/solutions? I'd be really grateful! Thanks :)

 Hi I hear a pop noise through headphone every time I play a music or even it plays Windows System sounds.The noise is short, it is like once you plug your headphone in. I feel it has something to do with the power management, becuase it appears the sound system goes into the offline mode when nothing is played and once it turns on to play something it makes the noise. I have found similar issues that people have faced but none of the worked for me. For example:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-PC-Sound-and-Audio/Hp-pavilion-g6-2240sq-strange-sound-speaker... and http://rog.asus.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-35046.html?s=927083fd01c9f0ec873b7e9e8da8d47e. I have made online chats with HP supports but they were not able to find a solution. What they did was to uninstall/reinstall the drivers which did not work for me. I feel this is a software issue. I was not expecting this from HP but I feel a bit dissapointed with my choice. I hope I can fix it and not return it.  I would  appreciate any suggesion. ThanksBijan

A:Popping short noise through headphone before play any sound ...

Hi, I've been looking for a solution for this problem and found that not using the Realtek HD Audio Manager/B&O will stop the audio popping. The problem with this driver is that it makes the sound card shut itself down after 10-20 seconds of no audio output in order to conserve battery life and to our advantage, there is no way to turn this "feature" off. What you're hearing, the popping sound, is similar to headphones being placed back in since the the sound card is being rebooted. I do notice that the audio is not as great after this fix. So you have to make a choice, sacraficing a little audio quality for no popping or better audio quality and popping. I found these steps from the hp forums here, credit to SteveCT99. Go to Windows Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers section.In the list of audio device drivers, look for Realtek High Definition Audio. Right-click and select Disable. The downward arrow displays on this driver, indicating it is disabled. (NOTE: At this point, you won?t be able to play any music files.)Right-click and select Update Driver Software.Select Browse my computer for driver software.Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.You should see a window that says Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.

Hi all, I'm not sure if someone else has asked about this, but I just installed the final release of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my desktop and Firefox constantly crashes on me. I'm guessing the main reason is because of a script I run through greasemonkey. My question is 2 fold:

1) Do you know how to fix this? I would really prefer to have firefox not crash every day (or multiple times a day)
2) If I can't keep firefox from crashing, do you know if there's a way I can get firefox to automatically restart when it crashes?

A:Firefox crashes constantly in Windows 7, auto restart?

I actually just noticed that there's a newer version of firefox. I was using 3.0.14. I allowed me to download 3.5.3. If this works then that's awesome, if not I'd still be interested in a auto restart app or extension.

This is driving me nuts. Every time the dvd drive gets highlighted in my file manager tree, it pops open if there's no cd/dvd in there. Then everything freezes for 10 seconds so the computer can open the drive. Then I have to close it by hand, and everything freezes again for 10 seconds.

How can I make this stop? It only happens with my 3rd-party file manager called Xplorer2, which is otherwise great. It does NOT happen in Windows Explorer. The developer of Xplorer2 (it's just one person) insists the program can't be opening the drive.

Is there somewhere in Windows where I can force this to stop?
 

A:Solved: Stop my dvd drive from constantly auto-ejecting!

Turns out it *is* the fault of Xplorer2. If anyone sees this - avoid this 3rd-party file manager. Do not buy it. The developer himself - it's all just one person - told me flat-out *Xplorer2 is not doing this*, and then later recanted, in a number of hostile and aggressive posts in his own help forum. (You can read the thread if you're curious).

The issue was cleared up by other people in the forum, but the bug still remains.The file manager opens the disc drive when you don't want it to.

VLC and AunPlayer. He tried to play the DVD with the AunPlayer installed, but when he input the DVD disk it didn't start right away in the AunPlayer. My neighbor said there is some way in Win 10 where we can indicate which program (AunPlayer) we would want to open and play the DVD as soon as the DVD was put into the external DVD player.
Does anyone know what we would have to do to the DVD start playing as soon as we put it in the external drive. As soon as it was inserted it would open right away in AunPlayer or VLC (We don't know which one is better).
