Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

On shutdown, I have 4 programs that don't close cleanly: sprtcmd.exe, ccsvchst, DSAgnt.exe and _PTAWIA. Do you recognize these and know what I should do to correct the problem? My 3000 is slow and I'm thinking these may be part of the problem! Thanks.

Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop


Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown, then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown, restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than using the usual buttons in the start menu.
Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

1. Go to your blank desktop
2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear
3. Choose New from the menu
4. Then choose Shortcut
5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s
6. Then press next
7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW
8. Press next
9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop

Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.


Shutdown.exe -s

Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.

shutdown.exe -r
Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.


shutdown.exe -l
This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.

shutdown.exe -s -t 1
Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.

shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot"
This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot"
The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.

Notes:

* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu..
* -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.

Tombraider underworld has started to run slow


Before you start any game, this is what I do:

1.)Hold down the Ctl button and push the Alt key and delete button.
2.)Once you have Task Manager running click the Processes tab.
3.)Right-click and choose End Task on any extra software programs you don't need, and make sure you save and quit any other programs which are open and you don't need.
4.)That usually frees up alot of memory from bloatware (extra software you never even knew ran in the background of the computer and that you don't need).
5.)If you don't know which to close down, try them out, for sure you need to keep open explorer.exe because that's your computer.
6.)If that doesn't improve it much, run a disk clean-up by going into My Computer, Right-Click on your hard drive which has the game installed on it (normally drive C) and click the Disk Cleanup button under the General tab.
7.)Finally also under that properties window you can go to the Tools tab and do a disk defragmentation.
8.)Restart once its done, but down forget to close all the bloatware again from Task Manager.

Hope this helps!

Pls advise if the following processes running in my Task Manager are viruses or genuine system processes - ccSvcHst.exe; lsass.exe; explorer.exe, winlogon.exe; svchost.exe; wuauclt.exe; jqs.exe;...


ccSvcHst.exe - works to display the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of Norton products, which usually include the Norton Security Suites.
lsass.exe - Disable and remove lsass.exe Immediately. This process is most likely a virus or trojan.

Other processes are required for essential applications to work properly.

You can visit this liutilities.com and search for the process your not familiar with.

CcSvcHst exe is taking increasing my memory and VM


This is a common problem with symantec products such as Norton 360 etc.

However Some malware camouflage themselves as ccSvcHst.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder
it is therefore woth downloading and running the free version of Malwarebytes just to be on the safe side. You can get it from here.

Boot the system in safe mode
1.) restart the system
2.) pump the F8 Key until a screen comes up with different options
3.) select safe mode,

Try right clicking there and see what happens,, I,m guessing here this is a result of damages done by a previoulsy removed virus (GUESSING) it is possible that the same one could have been shard by all 3,,

I'd advise you'd uninstall norton and use the new avg free
