  1. Hi My operating system is Windows XP with the latest updates as of 01-23-09. Not sure when it's dying. Here's what I'm using for security and maintenance. Also, here's a Hijack log. Thanks Lance hijackthis_01_24_09.log
  2. Hi Can anyone explain why my computer shuts down suddenly after about7 minutes into the full scan. I have been able to run a smart scan in reg mode and a full scan in safe mode. I used Revo to uninstall ad-aware2008. I have tried 6 times to run a full scan and they all result in an instant power down during file scan. Thanks Lance
  3. Hi, Raziel's and the rest are great just got a similar problem fixed. I believe that SDfix is what finally solved the deep registery scan problem, though each step did flush out errors within the system. Good luck, Lance
  4. Hi I'm going to consider this thread closed. My son is back at college with his computer running well and all scans running clean. I had him install Super Anti spyware and it removed the last few items I was worried about. I haven't heard if Ad-aware is running in safe mode yet. I'll make that a new item if it doesn't work. I believe that SDfix is what finally solved the deep registery scan problem, though each step did flush out errors within the system. The knowledge I've gained in my first forum has been invigorating. It's nice to find such good people willing to help. Thank you Raziel, Casey and GoddersUK Lance
  5. THANK YOU!!! It's hard to weed out the garbage. There is sooo much of it out there. I forwarded this to my son. So SDfix is Good? It sure freed up Ad-aware so it would run. I Revo unistalled Ad-aware and booted in safe mode to reinstall but the system said security settings wouldn't allow it. I'll let you know if the Super Anti spyware does the trick. Should I reinstall SDfix? Just reviewed previous post...I was multi tasking and apparently in reference to the Catchme file just brain farted...Of course I downloaded it!! I'm clad you were able to clarify it was a good file though. Thanks Thanks again Lance
  6. Hi A few hours left...Caught the worm early, I think it's gone. Ran the GMER file and it found nothing. Adobe 9 installed in the last couple of days. SDfix solved the Adaware 2008 free freeze problem and it now runs through a full scan. I'm not sure if the worm was in the program because I foolishly didn't prescan before installing. My last problem is getting Ad-aware to run in safe mode. Thanks again, Lance
  7. Hi I ran a program mention on another thread, I am in safemode and don't have the name in front of me. (I'm back in normal operating mode, the program that fixed the problem was SDFIX But scan it before using it. a trojan named "catchme" was in it. It did the Job and am able to run a full Ad-aware scan in regular mode. It found a few things that I'll post soon. The last problem I would like to fix is that Ad-aware won't run in safe mode. It's the same problem I've had all along. I'll attach a screen shot. It's very frustrating to be so close to solving this and not being able to finish. I attempted to repair Adaware through the add/repair window and the screen is the problem. Also the run error that started me trying to repair is in the 2nd screen shot it's the same error I've been getting. I have about 12 hours left. thanks again Lance
  8. Hi again, Since my son leaves on Saturday to go back to college I am giving this my last best effort. Since CCleaner had only a few Items I backed it up up and cleaned them. I also ran: DrWEB Spy Bot Windows defender McAfee Malwarebytes Anti Malware and then Ccleaner again just to make sure I got everything and then I did another hard drive error check on all hard drives. Restarted a few times just to keep things more frustrating. No errors or problems found. So I downloaded Ad-aware 2008 free. Saved it to my desk top and closed everything. I then installed It and ran update, turned off the wireless connection and crossed my fingers. No luck it FROZE!!! Here's what it looked like. Also I went ahead and attached a Hijack this log just in case you see something there. With our time difference I figure I have one more shot any IDEAS? By the way we're in Washington State, USA and just getting hammered by rain and floods. Thanks again for all the help and education.

  9. Thanks for your help. Just lovin the learnin. Lance Here's the CC screen shot:
  10. Help please!!! I down loaded Dr WEB and ran it again. none of the programs are finding anything. I figured out the DEP issue and turned it back on making As-aware an exception like you said to do. attached is the before and after freeze screens. Should I just uninstall Ad-aware? I appreciate your help, Lance
  11. OK, since last post I have run: CCleaner, both cleaner and registry cleaner and I cleaned everything except fonts doing this in several phases. I have run McAfee complete scan as well as there "maintain computer" and Windows defender. I have removed all the other programs. I have done another harddrive Error check. Ad-aware still freezes at "InprocServer32 CLSID" Thanks for your time, Here's the screen shots Lance Just ran another Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Here's the log: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.32 Database version: 1625 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 1/6/2009 5:44:23 PM mbam-log-2009-01-06 (17-44-23).txt Scan type: Full Scan (C:\|D:\|E:\|I:\|) Objects scanned: 175645 Time elapsed: 1 hour(s), 40 minute(s), 39 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infected: 0 Memory Processes Infected: (No malicious items detected) Memory Modules Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Keys Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Values Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Data Items Infected: (No malicious items detected) Folders Infected: (No malicious items detected) Files Infected: (No malicious items detected)
  12. Hi After reading a few of the other forums I removed Spybot last night. DEP is not accessible on this dell laptop "Inspiron E1505" it requires I go to the boot.ini file. What do you recommend? Still freezing Lance also, what am I doing wrong? saving images in several formats and tried cutting small sections. I still can't paste them in.
  13. Hi I've tried after each attemtped fix to run ad-aware in safe mode. The program gives the following error: Exception EAccessViolation in module Ad-Aware.exe at 001DA25C. Access violation at address 005DA25C in module 'Ad-Aware'. Read address 00000418. In the beginnig I deleted the registry path that it was freezing at. Realized I didn't know enough to be doing that. The one I deleted was: object: IMPROCSERVER32 current path: CLSID\{FE9E48A4-A014-11D`-855C-00A0C944138C}. It looked like it was part of the XP service pack 3 down load. When that didn't fix the problem I uninstalled service pack 3 and then reinstalled it hoping I hadn't screwed anything up. They all freeze in the CLSID section starting with F or CAFE. Ad-aware did run in safe mode on the 2nd try but still froze at: ImprocServer32 CLSID\{FEDCFFC1-BEC4-11D1-93B9-0060979C8AB8}\ Everthing is working fine except for Ad-aware. Just being cautious since there was so much spyware on this system when I started. Note: I have pictures of the adaware screens when they failed saved in word and paint. Have not been able to upload or paste them. Thanks for your time, Lance
  14. Did as you suggested...still frezes during deep scan. Here's a new hijack scan. Thanks for your time. Lance
  15. I ran Dr Web, McAfee, Windows defender, Spybot and Ad-aware quick scan. none of the programs found anything. Ad-aware deep scan has been foze now for 14hours 22 minutes. Any ideas?
