Please take a look at my stuff.
system getting weird
that looks clean to me.
Maybe you can get more detailed on how you feel your system is acting up?
was just going thru your log...
and do wait for the experts here to check through the log you posted and help you out regarding that
Looks like one of the experts beat you to it, subratam.
Maybe a new version of HijackThis would reveal some more.
Latest is 1.97.7
"I don't know about #'s 2,2,4th #4 or 6th and 12th 4's also, 12,1st 16,?
any help will be greatly apprecated!!
Thank you for looking!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!" from first log post bottem of log file.
By "weird" I mean, when starting task mngr, go to performance and cpu usage will be at 100% then drop to
a more realistic amount for app's that are running, or in the processes tab the iexplore.exe=13,464k, explorer.exe=
also what is the number of processes that should be running at a clean install? 21 is what I think.
I just "feel" that something else is running in the background, I even sometimes pull the cable out to isolate my puter and run all Anti's I have to see what is
happening. The AntiVir xp shows a bunch of stuff that is over my head and I would love to post that stuff sometime. Also it seams like symantec and liveupdate are getting on-line way to much, like about every 20min. And how many things need to get on-line in the sys for lets say, me to launch internet explorer?
Can I attach more than one file or do I need to post for each one?
Aha, forgot to name file as .txt
but did remember to copy message before trying to post!!
sub, you lost me? I don't know what you was trying to tell me with your reply.
I am a "braindead" type so please give detailed info.
I can (sometimes) follow good instructions.
BUT, thanks for looking and trying to help,(I need it).
Have a great day\night whatever it is for all who help!
Some items you can uncheck in msconfig:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CTHelper] CTHELPER.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CTStartup] C:\Program Files\Creative\Splash Screen\CTEaxSpl.EXE /run
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroCheck] C:\WINDOWS\System32\NeroCheck.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Disc Detector] C:\Program Files\Creative\ShareDLL\CtNotify.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\Updreg.exe
Maybe it will help you to get a betterview of what is going on.
Thank you Pieter! You Are The ONE!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't find disc detector or CTStartup but I did find the others in
Start, run, type in "msconfig", startup tab.
I also found a post by you that links to all the stuff I don't know or
understand. It was in the help for this "Browser Hijacks and Spyware Problems". It is a great starting point for the people like me who don't or can't seem to get it. WOO WOOO!!!!!
So great I even wrote them down besides adding to fav. (because I tend to reinstall or reformat a bunch).
Have a great one!
Glad to help.
Hey Pieter, Thanks again.
Something keeps leaving stuffon my desktop
like, "CurrentBatch.tbe" and "CurrentCfg.tpr" .
I don't have a clue as usual and can't open with anything and webhelp is not very helpful. Any ideas.
When using TMPGEnc you can specify the directories where to put those files.
Maybe the Desktop is not a great idea.
what i meant to say was that the IP address in the HOST place was not the correct one to go to www.dcsresearch.com as i am sure you have got one or more of their product which needs to have one such HOST address. The right one was also advised which is the one that should be there at the HOST for proper redirection
hope that made u understand
