Multiple issues on my VAIO

Recommended Posts

My laptop has lost it completely!!! I have problems with nearly everything. Some details:


1. i have been recently dealing with tonnes of pictures (I'm talking thousands here). Basically I have been talking snapshots of dvds, then renaming them, moving to different files etc. I was using the option of renaming/moving/copying multiple pictures. Even though most of the time i marked all files in the folder, it would only move/rename/copy some of them. Like 100 out of 1000 or even less. I then have to repeat the action multiple times and if i am lucky it will finally do it with all the pictures. On the top of that it freezes my laptop to death whilst doing the above actions. Also, when i am browsing the pictures in the windows fax and picture viewer it takes ages to generate the preview. Each picture is only about 1mb.


2.When I scan my laptop with True Sword 4, it finds a Netsky backdoor in startup. When i delete it, it basically removes MSN msger from running at startup. then each time i run msn, i get warned by spybot and ArcaVir about a new registry entry being created. If i allow it, i get that Netsky thing in my startup again.


3. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains

True Sword keeps picking bugs such as 108Solutions, Common, Dialer, Golden Palace Casino, Win32. Backdoor.Agent in this folder. I always remove the WHOLE folder from the registry because its full of crap to begin with! It contains tonnes of advertasing names or even porn names and all that. I have been removing the folder for quite a few months now but it keeps coming back, usually about once a week. All the virus names mentioned above were found on my system today, AGAIN.


4. My computer freezes constantly out of blue. I could be browsing something on the net (not downloading or loading anything) and then the browser freezes (i use opera and maxton). Or my windows explorer freezes and it wont stop till i shut it.


5. It is soooooo slow. It constantly seems to be loading something. I got a pop up ballon saying today that i was running low on virual memory whilst all i had open was one window (folder). My CPU jumps from 100 to 0 and back again when i am not doing anything.


6. Another problem with browsers, I used to use opera only but recently it has been freezing so much and taking ages to 'start connecting to the internet' at the beginning so i switched to maxton. The SAME problem. i always have the same browsers open and then the tabs are saved and restarted, could it be one of the websites causing it? (i dont have any nasties webbies there).


7. It freaked me out a few minutes ago when i turned on my laptop, it seemed to finish loading (wireless connected and skype automatically logged in). then i clicked on maxton and nothing happened, the icon didnt even highlight. I clicked again and nothing. I clicked on another icon, then on start menu and NOTHING. it was completely nonrespondive!!! i could open task mngr but thats about it. I tried to run something by clicking on new task but it totally froze my computer. i was able to restart it and then it worked but i honestly thought my laptop had died!!!




i'm posting my hijack log.


By the way, you will probably bring to notice that i have two main antiviruses on my system (NOD32 and AcraVir). I normally use NOD and my problems had started BEFORE i installed AcraVir. It is only a trial version , which will expire in a few weeks and i installed it to hopefully solve my problems but that didnt happen. I know it's not good to have two antiviruses but in my case this is not the reason for my problems. Thanks again in advance!!
