Somethings wrong, my PC guy was stumped

Q: Somethings wrong, my PC guy was stumped

I am unable to modify power plans, and change the effect that closing the lid on my laptop does:
Here are some of the symptoms:
1) DOS mode command "Net Start Power" results in "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied" when issued from an id with Administrator privileges.
2) DOS mode command "runas /noprofile /user:Administrator 'cmd /k net start power'" produces the error message "RUNAS ERROR : unable to run cmd /k net start power. 1327: Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank
passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced."
3) Device Manager Batteries + Microsoft Composite Battery "Device status: This device cannot start (code 10)."
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

Preferred Solution: Somethings wrong, my PC guy was stumped

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.)

Hi. I had some previous help from this forum and thought I might try again. I posted my hijackthis log a few days ago and someone helped me with that. Now my computer is running really slow again, keeps freezing and every time I start up again, it won't let me open anything until I've run RegCure. I just keep getting an error message, but it doesn't ask to send an error report. Something else I've noticed, when the computer's running like c**p, I bring up the task manager and it says wmpnetwk.exe NETWORK SERVICE 50 and it's using anywhere from 100,000K to 200,000K mem usage to run it.I also have lost saved passwords.This is my techexpress link from pc pitstop, which teacup said to post if I needed any more help.http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=ABD9SW6L88GSPVTGI'll post the link to my past post as well in case it's at all useful.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/130207/not-sure-what-type-of-infection-i-have/Any help would be great.Thankyou.

By the way, I just thought I'd add, all my problems seemed to start when I installed Optus Internet Security Suite. It has since been unistalled as I did a system restore a few days before I found this forum.

Okay, I?m running a Compaq Presario 5000 with XP Home Edition, SP3.Norton 2009, Spybot search & destroy and CCleaner.I had some strange little things happening in the last couple of days, example: When I open a window, it opens and then minimizes immediately (not normal) and does this with all newly opened windows.Some windows open, minimize and when you try to maximize them they won?t allow it and blink on the Taskbar about 10 times before finally allowing you to maximize them.Programs like Word, open up fine, but say I want to look at the desktop, minimize Word? but no; it pops right back up not allowing you to move it, which leaves you with closing it as the only option.Task Manager is doing the same thing, but worse! Open Task Manager, it opens in the maximized position and immediately goes to Taskbar, then continuously back and forth between Maximized window and Taskbar. The only way to stop it is to right click and close.CCleaner opens in maximized size and then bounces between small and large.I use WinRAR for work quite often and have the same ?bouncing? effects while downloading or uploading.I?ve run Spybot & CCleaner ? cleaned everything, then afterwards ran Norton.I?ve also run Ewido & BitDefender scans in Safe mode over night (yes, separately).Nothing seemed to help and I?m not finding any obvious viruses or Trojans.Any suggestions would be great.Thanks!

A:Okay, somethings wrong, not sure what...

OK the first thing that may be wrong here is Ewido. That application was taken over by AVG some 2 + years ago. Hence that scanning engine is just too outdated. Please uninstall it from the Control Panel. Please download and scan with MBam..Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.T...

A:think somethings wrong

anything look fishy? Hello joewcarson,We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.Thank you for understanding.Regards,The weatherman (Moderator)

Im not sure that this is the right forum to start this thread, so please move if appropriate. I have asked for advice on a couple different sites in the past to no avail. I go through the steps that they want done first and then post my HJT this log. Everyone says everything looks good though. I have for a long time now been convinced that I have a virus or something on my PC but neither HJT or the multiple anit-virus programs I have run turned anything much up. For some reason I still was convinced and continued trying differnt things. A cople of days ago I decided to reinstall Norton anti-virus and give that a try again. I did however stop explorer.exe from running while I installed it. I ran the scan and it actually found a virus.... W32.Alcra.D. All of the files were found here.. C:\Program Files\Ares\My Shared Folder\..... What worries me is I uninstalled this P2P program, maybe a year ago. It makes me believe my original thoughts were right. I have multiple viruses that have been here for sometime. Now Norton seems to be not running properly again and not detecting anything. So Im at a loss and I dont know if a HJT log is going to help...

A:Not Sure What Going On? Somethings Wrong

to BC r350z, You have two options as I see it: You can submit an HJT log to our expert team of analysts to receive step-by-step instructions on ridding your machine of malware. To post an HJT log please read the 'Preparation Guide' before posting to: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Hij...alysis-f22.html Alternatively you can post specifics in this forum and members will advise you ways to resolve your problems. (Please do not do this at the same time as having your log analysed.) Note: members are not permitted to advise on HJT logs in the open forums. We need to know some information about your system such as CPU type, RAM capacity, hard drive make and size, graphics card type, what version of windows, what anti-virus or anti-spyware you have and some details about your applications. Use 1 Anti-Virus program, 1 Firewall and many Anti-Spyware programs, supplemented by occasional online Anti-Virus scans. Start by following this guide: Is your Anti-virus program current and updated? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.) Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system. Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following: Ad-Aware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/

Hey,
Okay there is something seriously wrong with my laptop. A couple of days ago it started displaying error messages and windows defender started giving me trojan warnings. Like an idiot I had allowed my norton internet security subscription to expire. So then i downloaded spybot search and destroy and got a norton antivirus subscription for 12 months. I scanned my computer with both and removed all the evils within my laptop, or so it seemed. Now whats happening is that on startup i get a RunDLL error message. Random webpages open up while im browsing the internet. Spybot keeps alerting me of registry changes which i am forced to approve because they keep popping up a mile a minute if denied. Both windows defender and Norton antivirus keep alerting me to different trojans and 'threats'. However, when i scan my pc with these 2 softwares, they declare it COMPLETELY HEALTHY?!
here are some of the things that windows defender spybot and norton alert me to but are unable to detect later on:
W32.vundo
W32.fotomoto

i recently built my own computer, and have installed diablo2.
the introduction screen "blizzard" and "blizzardnorth" sound and look perfectly fine but as soon as the main choice screen comes up the sound becomes slightly choppy with a touch of static.
if i continue on to the actual game it increases from slightly to constantly and the static is fairly constant, as well as gameplay progressing to becoming unplayable from unnatural lag. all of my peripherals seem to work fine unless in diablo mode. my cd player plays cd's with no chop my mp3 player gives great sound wether on classical or hip hop and at any volume level. I have adjusted visuals as well as audio in the actual game to no avail, I down loaded the latest mouse drivers for my intellipoint imouse. and also the latest drivers for my legacy sound card,am using a gforce2 graphics accelerator,pentium4 1.5 gig cpu,20 gig hard drive,256 mb of ddr ram 350 watt power supply and a 52x cd rom drive. Is there something i should check and adjust in the computer.... clock speed or anything in the usual settings that may clarify this problem??
thanks for any time and effort you may use to assist me

A:somethings wrong somewhere

Have you checked your Direct X to see if you have the most up to date version?
Also is there any other application running on your computer that may be trying to access your sound/video at the same time as the game?

I to at first had problems running D2, but I found that once I made sure I hade no un-needed programs running that most of the bugs worked out, as far as your lag problem I cant help, you much there, I use a HSP56 MicroModem and it runs everything fine.
hope some of this helps but if not maybe someone else can offer better info..

A:Somethings wrong

Sounds like you messed up your video drivers. If you have the install set on the hard drive run the install again.

If you are using the original drivers from your installation CD, then insert it and run them again.

If you are using updated drivers you got from the web, then you need to download the installation set to a folder you create (name it VidDrivers) and then remove your existing screwed-up drivers using Add/Remove and reboot and then goto that VidDrivers folder and execute the install.

Please download SDFix from here and save it to your desktop


Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.


Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Post that log in your next reply.

Okay, I?ve already posted in the Security section and got some great advice from ?boopme? then it was recommended that I post in this section, so here?s the issue;I?m running a Compaq Presario 5000 with XP Home Edition, SP3.Norton 2009, Spybot search & destroy, CCleaner, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, ATF Cleaner and SuperAntiSpyware.I had some strange little things happening in the last few days, example: When I open a window, it opens and then minimizes immediately (not normal) and does this with all newly opened windows.Some windows open, minimize and when you try to maximize them they won?t allow it and blink on the Taskbar about 10 times before finally allowing you to maximize them. ? Programs like Word, open up fine, but say I want to look at the desktop, minimize Word? but no; it pops right back up not allowing you to move it, which leaves you with closing it as the only option.? Task Manager is doing the same thing, but worse! ? Open Task Manager, it opens in the maximized position and immediately goes to Taskbar, then continuously back and forth between Maximized window and Taskbar. ? The only way to stop it is to right click and close.? CCleaner opens in maximized size and then bounces between small and large.? I use WinRAR for work quite often and have the same ?bouncing? effects while downloading or uploading.I?ve run Spybot & CCleaner Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, ATF Cleaner and SUPERAntiSypware under Safe Mode over night (yes, separately).

A:Okay, somethings wrong...

minimization and window focus changes are usually a program running in the background, i have heard of norton doing this for games but not general windows, however, try disabling norton just to see what it does.

Otherwise click on start then run and type in
msconfig
and click ok, then go to the startup tab and uncheck all the items there and click OK and restart the pc, this will usually rule out extra programs doing its

(it could also be something as simple as a stuck key on your keyboard as well, or mouse if you have a mouse with multiple buttons)

Sounds like you have some malware on your computer which is replicating like mad. The random number.exes are basically copies or variants of the malware/virus trying to ensure you can't remove it or slowing down your machine with crap processes.

You currently have two options:

1) Wipe and reinstall - Some viruses/malware will screw up your system and sometimes it is better to just do a clean install to avoid the headaches.

2) Try and clean it - The reason this is number two is without identifying the root cause of the problem, you can try and download Malwarebyte's Anti-Mallware and Super Anti-Spyware from a clean computer, reboot your current computer into safe mode and try installing those two programs to see if they can clean it out. If it is a rootkit infection, it may be difficult to remove in general and in some cases, if you haven't set up a secondary administrator account on the system, you may still have some pro...

Once again a computer in my family has a problem and once again the problem solving has been palmed off on me!

Here's what's happened...

Windows Vista Laptp, worked fine yesterday. Today it says it has no internet connection through it's built in wireless.
After a few goes at trying to get it working we give in, and restore the system to two days ago.
The intenet connection is back! Yay - but Avira AntiVir won't update, scan (It comes up with the message 'The specific modules cannot be loaded) and the AntiVir Guard has been deactivated and it now doesn't give an option to reactive all it says is 'services' and 'help'.
Help indeed!
So I went off and tried Windows Security Centre, everything is happily green except for Malware Protection, which is RED. When you try to 'Turn on now' it does nothing, the laptop just sits there looking back at you.

I ran spybot and it kicked up 3 cookies trackers but nothing unusual. I tried HijackThis, it brings up a log but I don't know what it means.
Something is going on but I don't know what.

Is this something you guys could help me with.

Thanks in advance.

Once it connects reactions seem slower, like my computer can't handle what evers happening and i get the error

"service and controller app stopped working..."

"windows has had a critical error and must restart imediately"

I've seen both, and it always tells me i have 1 minute before it restarts.

But if i stay disconnected I haven't been getting the error "yet"

If you can fill out the rest of your computer stats that will help. As for what you have said it sounds like a video driver. Make sure you have the latest drivers from Nvidia for your video card.
