When i am trying to upgrade service pack it showing an error windowssystem32savedump.exe


I think it's possible that your computer is infected with the ramnit virus that replaces the savedump.exe file in windows/system32

The virus protects itself to prevent it being erased which would be the case if you are attempting to overwrite update the file.

Run an couple of antivirus programs and see if its detected.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

XP Pro Sp3 Not working


If you recently installed .NET Framework 3.5 this can happen.

While Avast may say that there are no infections, it's impossible to know if it has not been compromised without being able to scan the system with a non-local AV.

I would suggest trying to boot the system into safe mode. Hit F8 while powering the machine on and select Safe-Mode. While there, if you have better functionality of your machine, run a Malware scan at:
www.trendmicro.com/housecall

And follow the instructions on the page, let this run, until the results dialogue window pops up, this make take a while. 1-3+ hours. Just let it run, you do not need to attend it once it tells you it is scanning.

Perform some maintenance cleaning, visit this site to download an application called CCleaner
http://www.filehippo.com/download/file/df09062a5bdcfd3a0a0cf31f7117c0cb566fe5b698d89848911da4e434cb72f5/

After these steps.
Adjust what programs you have starting up in the beginning:

Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click the Startup Tab then un-check any program entries that you don't need starting up in the beginning. This does not remove them from your computer, just from starting up in the beginning and taking resources in the background. When you need the program, you can simply click on its link in your start menu. It is your choice what you keep and what to remove.

Let us know if you run into any bumps.

An unknown error tell me pzzzzzzz


Apparently your XP is missing some needed component to complete the task you are trying to perform. When and in what context does this message appear, as that will give a clue as to the missing component(s).

I notice that you do not have the Windows XP style selected as your taskbar is grey, not blue. Was it always this way or did it change by itself. If it just changed one day, it could be a sign of hard drive corruption (where it cannot access the XP theme) or virus infection (where a virus deliberately disables various system functions to prevent you from using the machine).

Did you have a recent virus infection that was cleaned up? The anti-virus program may have removed some Windows files where the virus(es) attached themselves.

Start with the simple. Go to My Computer, right click on your hard drive, select Properties at the bottom, go to the second tab Tools and run a disk error check. Check the boxes for Automatically fix system error and Scan for bad blocks. You will have to reboot and be patient as this can take a while depending on the size of the drive. The computer will continue to the desktop when the disk check is complete. Listen for and ticking, knocking or attempts to keep reading disk sectors as this may be a sign of a failing drive.

After, download and run at least one antivirus scan. I can see you have CCleaner and uTorrent but I do not see any antivirus. If you have SP2 or SP3, install Windows Defender from Microsoft first. It is self explanatory, free and available here:)

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=435bfce7-da2b-4a6a-afa4-f7f14e605a0d&displaylang=en

Note you must be running a legal copy of Windows XP for this to install.

The other antivirus I would suggest is AVG Free Edition, which is available from here:)

http://www.avg.com/filedir/inst/avg_free_stf_en_8_176a1400.exe

My final suggestion is to run a System File Check, but you need a Windows XP installation disk for that. The Compaq Restore CDs will not suffice as they are generally compressed and encoded.

Please post comments on your progress and results.
