Programs not responding

Benimur - I downloaded Ad aware. It found 80 infections which I deleted. When I disabled all but the Symantec files in msconfig the computer convulsed and I lost almost everything no sound no internet connection no email - nothing. If the malicious program you suggested is in msconfig how can I identify and remove it?

Hi again Gordon,

Appreciate the update.
1. other than the glitches you posted, was there any significant change on how the programs responded, specifically are they still prone to "not responding". If still, then problem is elsewhere, if no more "not responding" then we simply have to weave out the culprit among the many in msconfig's Startup;
2. Could you please post back a list of the programs that are running in msconfig's Startup?

    hpsysdrv (you may want to try unchecking also)

Hello,

Symantec is a Norton product the name is more easily recognized. If you can tell me what products you have installed like, Norton antivirus, firewall, backup etc.. I can help you localize the issue and remove the offending program or reinstall it.
To find this out please go into your control panel and then ad remove programs, there you will see a list of the programs installed alphabetically sorted.
Let me know and we will go from there.

Cheers!

It runs multiple screens with the message internet script error


Hi hbatessr. You have a virus/spyware problem. Whatever has infected your system is trying to access different websites. You need to install and run a spy-ware and anti-virus program to resolve this. If you want some free programs, go to www.download.com and search for and download AVG anti-virus free version and Ad-Aware free version. Once you update and run both of these products, you will find lots of stuff that has infected your computer and needs to be deleted.
Hopes this helps!

I downloaded a program containing a virus that is quickly killing


It sounds like you got a dose of WINAntivirus Pro 2009, really nasty spyware. If that is the case, reformatting the system is almost a given.

You can try programs like Ad-Aware and Spybot search and destroy but some of these new ones are just way too time intensive to fully remove

IE7 Home Page hijacked by a Dell advertising page


This is some advice I found after researching on Web: If I were you, I would get SpyBot Search And Destroy, and Ad-Aware 6 They are both Free award winning programs. But GET BOTH IF I WERE YOU. [Ad-aware is better in the sense that it finds more things and is updated alot more often] But Spybot is able to find a few things that Ad-aware Cant also. So, Get those 2 programs, and Update them. Be sure to customize Ad-Aware's Scanning settings to make sure it scans everything possible.
I would suggest scanning with Ad-Aware First, then find those extra few registry keys that Ad-aware couldnt detect, with SpyBot. Also, A VERY good program is SpySweeper. That has ALOT of definitions.

This is only an idea, but if you aren't on dial-up you can download 2 very good FREE programs. Go to download.com and enter AVG Free into search, Download the file, it's about 46MB. Save it to your temp folder (right click Start/explore/ (C) / Windows / Temp make a new folder in Temp called "software' or something. Then in download.com search for ad-aware free (it's by lavasoft) Save also to (C)/windows/temp/software.

Now install. When installing AVG select advanced instead of standard when you get to the box that gives the choice, when you get to where it confirms if you want to download and install the free AVG toolbar, untick (don't install it) Select USE FREE when you get to the registration box, and also don't register your details (unless you want emails from them)
Update it but don't run a scan yet.

Ad-aware by Lavasoft. Install it. Make sure the correct plug in's are ticked or not re what email software you use when you get to that box. Don't register this one either.

When they are both installed go to the desktop, you will have two shortcut icons for Ad-aware, keep the one that looks like a green world and delete the one that looks like a sheild with a beetle on it.

Open Lavasoft and Update it.
Open AVG and Update it.

Restart your computer in Safe mode (usually by pressing F8 at startup) Run a Full Scan from Ad-aware. Select and delete Critical and Privacy Spyware when scan completes.

Run an AVG full computer scan. Delete or remove anthing found.

Restart in normal Windows. From now on keep them updated and run at the minimum weekly scans (Smart Scans in Ad-aware) These two programs will cover virus and spyware very well, you can delete or disable anything else.

Hope this helps, I have used these two free products for over 5 years with no problems. Make sure your Microsoft Updates are current.

Computer is 3 weeks old.DLL module missing.cant open mirco works.did scan on computer,3000 errors were found


suggest downloading avast anti virus home addition from the avast website here , the home adition is free and auto updates, free to register too. after you have installed and done a pc scan with avast anti virus, may i suggest that you type in the specific DLL file you want from the google search engine. many sites sould have one for you to download. please get the anti virus first as your pc can get infected as soon as you turn one on. 'ad aware', ccleaner are two other programs i personally use and wouldnt be without either. good luck :)
