Question about Microsoft Windows Xp Home Edition Sp2 English Mlp Na Only Additional License (n0901086) for PC

1 Answer

Networking / Virus - Malware

I faced the following problem at a client's and wasn't able to resolve it:
The client has only 2 PCs networked directly with a cross cable. Both running Windows XP SP2 on a P4 chipset MoBo.

Till few days ago both were working fine but one was with a standby HDD since their original HDD had gone for some repairs/replacement etc. 2 Days ago, OS was reinstalled on the replacement HDD with needed drivers and s/w etc and PC is working fine now.

Networking is also okay. File Sharing is fine too. Able to ping from each other. The other PC has a naviscope proxy which also has 2 LAN cards, one local and other connected to cable isp. Now in the first PC's browser, if I set to the port required by naviscope (81), I get a ''Waiting for www.google.com'' for an instant and then a page could not be found error message.

I tried changing the proxy to ccproxy and still the same problem. I am wondering what I am missing. Is there some setting I forgot to do on the non-proxy PC? If pinging and local networking is okay, then should it not be able to connect to the net just given the proxy address?

Both have the ips as 192.168.0.3 / 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.0.4 / 255.255.255.0 respectively and no dns entries as the dns on the proxy PC is a different network (172.16.x.x)

Can anyone throw some light where am I going wrong? I feel there is some malware on the proxy PC. Since analogx proxy setup file just fails to run without any error message and IE sometimes starts very slowly. Can it be the reason for this?

    There's no hosts file under windows\system32 directory but one is there under windows\system32\drivers\etc and it seems normal, no additions etc.

    Well, whatever the problem was, most probably malware, it got solved by system restore on both the PCs. Thanks for trying to help.

You probably have the S.M.A.R.T. virus. Bring it to a PC shop that specializes in virus/malware removal for a set price. This virus infestation is serious trouble.

However if you feel you can fix it on your own. Check for viruses and malware. But be warned the S.M.A.R.T. virus is extremely difficult to completely remove and you'll need to restore all your icons as well.

Hello,

Are you using any trend micro anti virus? If so, try the following

1. Open your Outlook 2007
2. Click on Tools.
3. Click on Trust center.
4. The Trust center window will pop-up and click on Add-ins on the right part of the screen.
5. Under Manage: COM Add-ins
6. Click on Go.. (Middle bottom part of screen)
7. Uncheck all the Add-ins Exept for TMAS (TMAS is Trend Micro) then Click on OK.
7. Restart your computer.

Or if using a anti virus program and you see that in the "add in" options just substitute.

My computer virus protection found GRAY_Gen.MZ40K9 how do I get rid of it


Try my five easy steps (if the first option doesn't work).

Download and install Malware Bytes, it's a completely free virus scan utility that not only finds the viruses, but gets rid of them too.

1. Go to http://download.cnet.com/3001-20_4-10804572.html?spi=1368be730f27c08fc9f5bc828a1ed6e5
(If the virus is so bad that you are unable to do so, get it off another computer with internet access and save the setup to a flash drive).

2. Boot the infected computer into 'Safe Mode With Networking' by repeatedly tapping F8 while the computer is starting up.

3. After entering Safe Mode /w Networking, drag the setup file to the desktop from the flash drive and run the setup to install Malware Bytes

4. After Malware Bytes starts up, go to the 'Update' tab and click Check For Updates. (This is the reason for booting into Safe Mode With Networking, so you can connect to the internet to download the updates).

5. Go back to the 'Scanner' tab and choose 'Full Scan' and then it will ask which drive you want to scan, select your hard drive and let it go!

Good Luck :)

Try using Combofix, then update and run your virus scan. Combofix will attempt to delete and viruses it can, but it will clean the registry so you can perform some scanning and virus removals. Works Great and highly recommended. I use it all the time on client PCs.

Networking problem


From client pc
1.) click start
2.)click run
3.)in the box that opens, type cmd
4.)click ok button
A black box will appear
5.) type ipconfig
6.)press the enter key
Some lines of text will appear. One of these lines says IP Address please take note of the numbers to left of this. This is your Clients IP address
Now, you said your server IP address is 192.168.1.2 and lets say from the instructions I just gave you that you find your client IP address is 192.168.2.5. If your client pc does not have an IP address that begins with 192.168.1 it will not see your server. Also, If your client pc in question has an IP address the same as another one of your client pc's it will not see a server.
I suggest the following.
Change the IP address on your client pc following these steps
From the desktop of the client pc
1.)click start
2.)open control panel
3.)double click Network Connections
4.)right click Local Area Connection (it is possible to have more than one)
5.)left click properties
6.)a window will open, in the middle of this window is box you can scroll down in, scroll down and find TCP/IP
7.) left click on TCP/IP to highlight it
8.)once highlighted click the properties buttton just below the scroll box.
9.)another window will open
10.)click the dot next to Use the following IP Address
11.) enter the following
IP Address = 192.168.1.??? (replace question marks with a number of your choosing. Just dont go above 254 and don't use a number that you are using on your other pc's)
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.1.2
12.) click ok
13.) click ok on any other open windows and reboot PC. then test connectivity.

PLEASE NOTE: There are alot of things that can change what you need to enter for the Gateway, Subnet Mask and IP address. Generally with simple networking it is what i have described above but if you have a Cable/DSL router for internet or wireless router then the numbers you must put in these fields changes. The directions I gave you above is assuming that you just want to get your pc talking to your server. It does not take into account any routers or advanced networking equipment. If you do have a router I will need more info and a somewhat different set of directions will apply.
