PC locks up when running any kind of scan

Q: PC locks up when running any kind of scan

My PC has a problem when running any kind of scan. (anti virus, spybot, super anti spyware...) When I have task manager open, I can see the cpu clog up at 100%. It also happens when I try to install programs. I have a Celeron processor with 2GB of Ram and tons of storage. I have attached a Hijack this log file if anyone can decypher it. Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: PC locks up when running any kind of scan

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.)

Try running GMER in safe mode. If GMER crashes or keeps resulting in a BSODs, uncheck Devices on the right side before scanning.

Hello,
 
As directed in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/596698/scanning/
 
There is some program or task scanning my system within minutes of startup. So far the cause has eluded detection. It is very frustrating as during the scanning the laptop is totally unusable. If a browser window is open, it keeps minimizing and maximizing without action on my part. I also get "Not Responding" messages in any open windows. This scanning can go on for between 5 and 30+ minutes.
 
EDIT: A scan started at 17:40, totally froze a game I was playing and was still running as of 2 min ago (18:13) when I forceably turned off the laptop. Before doing so, I managed to get into the task manager (took about 10 min to open) and I noticed one process using over 1GB. It was:
 
C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs.

I am running microsoft XP Pro (SP2)
I use the following software:
Residents: Nod32, Spysweeper, Win Patrol, MS antispyware
On-demand (protection system): AntiVir (free), Ad-aware (free), Ewido (free), A2 (free), SpyBot - All for manual scanning back-up

About a week ago I found that I had a problem on my PC.

1. When I attempt to do a manual scan using one of the AV program (AntiVir, Ewido or A2) the process starts properly, and after
about 10-15 minutes of running (when the scan is about 40%-60% complete) my PC locks-up without warning.
In order to continue working on the PC, I have to reboot.
The same problems occurs when I run NOD32 deep-scanning

2. When I use SpySweeper, Ad-Aware or Registry cleaners (RegSeeker or ACE) the process runs (completely) with no problem (running time up to 10 minutes).
The same happens when I scan using NOD32 Anti-Virus (regular scanning - not deep-scanning). Note: 0 virus found

3. Sometimes, when I am running a manual scan using an AV program, with no warning a blue screen appears with the following
text "DRIVER_IRLQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ......... (and ending with) Beginning Dump of Physical Memory", then the PC shuts down.

In order to try and overcome the problem, I un-installed NOD32, to see if the problem persists, and if there is an incompatibilty
between different Anti-Virus programs - there was no difference - the same problem occurred i.e.
with AntiVir, Ewido, A2 the PC / OS locks-up after approximately 10-15 mi... Read more

A:PC locks-up during AV manual scan

While you can usually have any number of anti-malware aps like Adaware, MS Beta, etc installed at the same time the same is not true with AV aps which conflict with each other. Remove all your Anti-Virus aps and reinstall just one. AVG (free) is one spoken highly of on this board.

You can also use only one software firewall. Pick one and delete the others. Delete and reinstall the one you want to use so you can set its settings properly (You already have some necessary system dlls being blocked - NT Kernel & System and svchost which may normally have several instances running at any given time.

A:I have malware of some kind, here are the newer DDS, ark and attach scan charts

Hello and welcome to TSF!!

Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.

This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:

How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

We can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards. If you wish to continue follow the steps below.

Download and Run ComboFix

Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

In the past day, my computer has been very tempermental. I am running Vista Home Premium and have been for about 2 months without any issues. I run Avira Antivir and Kaspersky Internet Security in the background. I ran a full Kaspersky scan and have no issues. Antivir has not found anything either, except for HP false positives. When I run Ad-Aware and Spybot scans, nothing shows up. I also ran CCleaner to scrub temp files and registry. Also, a quick scan with MBAM was clean.

But when I try to run a full scan in MBAM or SuperAntiSpyware, the computer hangs. This usually happens when the screen saver kicks in. So I disabled the screen saver, but it still happens. I cannot access anything at that point and have to power off from the power supply (ctl alt delete won't work).

Does anyone have any thoughts?

If I try to do a full scan with F-Secure Anti-virus 7.0, my system freezes during the scan. It never happens at the same place. The mouse cursor still moves but nothing else works. I have to hit the reset button to reboot. While the scan uses a fair amount of CPU resources, it doesn't max it out. I can run prime95 for an hour without a problem. Panda Activescan 2.0 works just fine in full scan mode. I haven't error checked or defragged in a while. I also had a malware infection recently which I think I have corrected. My system has a Phenom 9600 Black edition CPU (not overclocked), a MSI K9A2 Platinum version 1 MB (bios version 1.30), 2048 MB (2x 1024 MB) Mushkin HP2-6400 running at the SPD settings, Gigabyte GV-RX387512H Radeon HD 3870 graphics, Creative X-Fi Platinum sound card and Linksys wireless g adapter. There are two SATA hard drives and two IDE drives and an LG super multi GGC-H20L optical drive. The WinXP Sp2 OS is on a Maxtor SATA-300 drive. The power supply is s Corsair HX620W. Most partitions are formatted as NTFS but I do have a couple of FAT-64 partitions.

Help or useful comments would be appreciated.

Dear BC, Many thanks for all the times that you have indirectly helped me in the past via reading your forums. Unfortunately, this time I am in need of your valuable time and specific assistance. The affected Laptop is a HP Pavilion ZV5000 Series, P4, 3.2GHz using XP SP3.History of symptoms and events leading up to this request:1. Approx. 2-3 weeks ago my hotmail account was hijacked and was sending spam to all of my contacts. I also noticed that my laptop was not performing well (i.e., running slow after an hour or two of use, touchpad would resist movement commands, etc.). Actions taken: I deleted all of my contacts on that email account and opened a gmail account for all of my contacts and personal email. I opened and 1st tried to update the Mbam (Malwarebytes) database before scanning. Every scan attempt failed with an "Error: .... 732 (0,0)" Message, even in Safe-Mode. Sorry but I did not log down this error but clearly remember the error code was 732 (0,0). Avast AV scans were/are of no help.2. After googling the 732 (0,0) error I uninstalled Mbam, restarted, ran Mbam cleaner, restarted, downloaded the latest version of Mbam, ran it and still it would not update its database. Repeating the process (even in safe mode) provided no solution. After reading a forum suggesting that re-registering Mbam after reinstalling the latest (Software) version would solve this problem I tried that and lo-and-behold I could now update Mbam?s malware definitions database. 3.

My laptop was running quite slow with opening certain programs and also many programs would become unresponsive if I tried to do too many things at once (Firefox and iTunes especially), and so I successfully ran registry and adware cleaners, and tried to run Malwarebytes (and alternatives), but found that I couldn't run a full scan without it becoming completely unresponsive and effectively crashing my computer. In the end I decided to just restore my laptop to factory settings hoping that that would be an easy way to get rid of whatever the problem was, but I'm still having the same issues with unresponsive programs and I can't even run a full antivirus scan without it getting stuck somewhere around 8% and I even tried to run Malwarebytes again but it couldn't go more than a couple of seconds before crashing. A massive amount of windows updates were installed, which took about 90 minutes to complete, but then it got stuck twice on the 'configuring windows' screen and I had to restart it to get it going again (after waiting about an hour each time) but the problems started before those updates, and are still going. I haven't really done much to screw it up since the factory restore - uninstalled some preloaded rubbish and installed Malwarebytes (then uninstalled it) OpenOffice, Firefox, iTunes and VLC player, and transferred some personal files back onto it.

I hate wasting your time guys but I need a bit of assistance. The computer itself is not running too bad EXCEPT for...... there are certain aspects that are "slow".
 
Doing an email >> It posts one letter at a time, very slow! If you type out five sentences, it'll take around 60 seconds for it all to appear. I type it, then go do something else (lol).
 
Anything I VIEW >> The audio does not match up with visual. YouTube for example.
 
I also play an online game (very honest site, no issues in four years). The audio is like ten seconds ahead of visual, quite annoying. I did ALL the usual scans, came up with nothing. I use Avast, also came up with nothing. Can anyone help me out? I use Windows XP and Internet Explorer.
 
I did updates to the computer, registry scans etc., I think everything? I also did a system restore to an earlier time BEFORE this issie started but the issue is still there. 
Can I fix this for free guys? (money is tight).
 
Thanks, Ken

Hi all,

I configured Verifier.exe to run to see if it might shed some light on freezes and bsods. Anyway, I'm notice my audio playback is now choking every few seconds. I notice a little bump in the cpu load but nothing major.

Well wanted to ask since I made that configuration change and all of sudden the audio issue. I read somewhere that it's good to let it run at least 24 hours. So trying to avoid stopping and starting before that time is up.

Thanks.

A:Does running Verifier put any kind of load on the system?

I believe it does cause a lag on the PC . It is stressing the drivers to see which driver causes the BSOD . So what you're experiencing is normal when you have DV enabled .

About 3 months ago my computer just started randomly locking when I was running 3d games. I wasn't having any problem in the world running 2d games so I was thinking maybe the GPU or video card memory was overheating. So I pulled a fan and heatsink off an old 386 processor I had and fixed it to the GPU and still the same problem.

Since then I've tried using a TNT2 and swapped out or replaced all hardware except for the motherboard and processor. Even tried changing the power supply. All drivers are up to date. I've tried 3 different BIOS revisions. I've tried using at least 5 versions of the Nvidia detonator drivers (I keep them archived in case of problems like this.) It locks up if there's sound being used or sound completely off and if the sound card isn't even in the computer. I'm running DX8.1 and nothing changed, software or hardware, when the problem occurred.

Video card is not overclocked. AGP aperture set in BIOS to 64 meg. I've defragged the HDD recently. Happens with any 3d game no matter how low the settings for the game are set.

Common games being played: CounterStrike, Monkey Island 3, WC3, Ultima Online (3d Client) Q3

System Specs:

Athlon 1.4Ghz
768 meg RAM
GeForce 2 GTS 32meg / TNT2 32meg (TNT2 for testing if it was the vid card)
34.6 Maxtor HDD
Asus A7V133 (not using the onboard RAID at the moment)
SBLive!

Hey y'all
I have a problem with my PC. Sometimes when I leave my computer on and leave it idle for a while and then come back to it the whole thing will be locked up. I can move the mouse around but as soon as I click something it will lock up and the time will be locked to the time when it had locked up. The whole thing basically locks up causing the green vista loading mouse circle to replace the pointer. The only way to shut it off is to hold down the power button for about 5seconds. Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? I'm boggled by this.

Specs are as follows:
Intel Core 2 quad Q6600 (2.4Ghz)
4Gb Ram
640 GB hard drive
Nvidia 9500GS

Hello:

I've got a problem with my Win XP system. A few days ago after a program conflict and system crash I had to reinstall my DSL utility program/drivers/modem etc...

The installation went well except that something seems to be running now in the background. I can log onto the Web, communicate and run all programs, but there is a regular tone annunciating (sounds like when a USB device connects) a bonging sound which occurs regularly.

Because I thought that there was some sort of conflict I clicked on "Add Hardware Wizard" and got the following message.

"Cannot run two device installations.
You can install only one device at a time, another device installation is underway, when it is finished you can try the Wizard again."

This seems to be the problem....the system apparently is hung up trying to install a device and never can complete that task.

Is there some simple way to stop this process? and in turn turn off the constant tone.

Thank you

Fred Gendler
 

A:Add Hardware Wizard locks up running in Win XP

Boot to safe mode and see if issue is still present. If the other device is not USB, then it should eventually install.

Also look in device manager and see if there are any bangs (? or !)

Would it be a RAM or CPU issue causing an application lockup? When I run two online applications, one of them locks up. One uses 348 meg of memory [java Platform SE Binary] and the other uses 419 meg of memory [java].

I do have a Windows XP Home Edition Reinstall disk

Over the last few weeks, my PC has been having fits running slow, locking up, 1 BSOD (KERNEL.STACK_INPAGE_ERROR), stuttering sound, windows getting locked, mouse pausing and freezing, etc. It frequently requires hard boots as it won't respond to Ctrl-Alt-Delete. This happens in safe mode as well.

The CPU usage is often stuck at 100%, even with no applications running. I can't see any pattern to it. It can run fine for a few hours, then suddenly get stutter and lock up.

The only thing has changed recently is that a week or two before this started happening, the CMOS battery was giving error messages on reboots, so I replaced it. I have not been able to see anything wrong in the BIOS settings. Device Manager gives no errors.

I haven't seen any signs of malware, but just in case, I have attached the normal logs. I run ZoneAlarm Free and Microsoft Security Essentials. Virus scans have been negative. I also ran Lavasoft Ad-Aware, but it found nothing other than harmless cookies.

I have cleaned/vacuumed out the system (which I do regularly anyway). I removed and reseated all the cards and memory. I checked that all the fans were working.

I have run CleanUp! (also a normal thing on my routine maintenance). The disk is not fragmented. I removed what programs and autoruns I was sure about.

Hi. After upgrading BIOS to 2.12 the CPU frequency is locked to the lowest possible (disregarding BIOS settings). Plugging in the battery makes it work again.For the sake of prolonging my battery life I ususally run without it when safely docked at home.Anyone else experiencing this? I assume it's a bug?

A:Bios upgrade to 2.12 on T460p locks cpu frequency to lowest when running without battery

It sounds like a bug might have been fixed.  I would expect it to slow down if you had just a battery (no A/C) or just A/C (no battery).  The charhing circuity won't "cook" the battery.  It will stop charging when it is fully charged.

Computer in question:

I get a call from this lady and she says her computer locks up while on the internet and then the screen goes blank. When she turns it off and back on nothing happens. If she tries it later it will turn on but when she's on the internet it happens again.
So thats the diagnosis she gave me.

Today after work I stopped by her house and used the computer for a bit. She is running WinXP Pro SP1. I checked her antivirus, it needed updating but the defs weren't real old. I then looked in the event viewer, it was clean, no warnings or anything, only the information messages.

So right now I'm thinking wtf? everything seems ok to me that would cause black screens. So I decide to fire up adaware (because I'm about to head out and thinking I might as well clean up the crap she's gotten from using IE while I'm here).

So while AdAware is dling its thing I decide to go to Windowsupdate.com and get some crap dling before I leave (she's on dialup). As those pages are loading up I decide to check her monitor connection just incase thats loose. As I reach back behind I touched her usb cable going to her printer.
