Slow start/shutdown etc

Unread postby ism » September 14th, 2006, 4:59 pm

System slow to start/shutdown. May need several reboots before desktop loads properly - blank screen with wallpaper only - no icons, taskbar etc.
Sometimes locks up - unable to close programs from Task Manager - have to reboot.

Hi ism and welcome to malwareremoval forums

I am currently looking over your log. As I am an Undergraduate, everything that I post to you must be checked by an Admin or Moderator. Thus, there may be a tiny bit of a delay between posts, but it shouldn't be too long. I will post back shortly with a potential fix.

Thanks for your patience!

Hi ism

Is this yours or company network ISP? O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{7F1E56DC-922F-431A-B633-B0974BB62611}: NameServer = 194.168.4.100 194.168.8.100

Can I ask if you or an administrator set these restrictions with a program like Spybot S&D or something similar... If not, they should be fixed...check them with the others if you decide to fix

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present


Did you put these items in your trusted zone. If you did not, or if you don't need them there for access, they should be removed; otherwise, your giving those sites unfettered access to your computer...
check these also if you decide to fix

Hi Dan - apologies for the delay and thanks for your help

Quick answer to your queries

PC is home stand alone - ISP is tesco.net on dial up - does this explain 017? Should it be checked and fixed?

06 - restrictions - I ran SpyBot S&D over a year ago - it caused problems (can't remember what) and was removed. Currently run SpywareBlaster.
I haven't (deliberately) set any restrictions

015 - trusted zone - can't access the first, the second is exactly what it says. I didn't place them in the trusted zone - I assume that happened during automatic set up.

For info, security on this PC is Avast, Zone Alarm, AdAware, SpywareBlaster, A squared.

XP sp2 - updates up to date.

Time permitting, I should have the other logs for you in the next couple of days.

thanks

Hi ism
Your log is now clean.
You say
Ewido drew a blank so no log

I'm suprised that ewido didn't pick up a few tracking cookies.
Its important that I see the results of these logs even if as you say "it drew a blank" because I have the responsibility when I say your log is clean.
So if you have the log it produced could I see it please It may have quarantined items.
I need to see these items, and to insruct you to delete them.
You didn't say if you have improvement?
How are things at this point in time?
Thanks dan

Hi Ism

Download and Save Cleandesktop to your computer from this link: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/cleandesktop.exe and double click on the cleandesktop.exe

It will automatically extract to c:\desktopclean where it needs to be to run and will automatically run the cleandesktop.vbs script

If it doesn't open then go to c:\desktopclean and double click on the cleandesktop.vbs Do not run any other file from there!

If you have script blocking enabled you will get a warning about a malicious script wanting to run. Please allow this script to run. It is not malicious.

If you get a message when you first run it "Can not find script file "blah blah blah" then don't worry just doubleclick the cleandesktop.vbs script again you sometimes get that message when a script blocker blocks the script.

It will then kill Explorer. You will lose your taskbar and desktop. It will repair the registry entries returning your normal desktop and context menu functions.

It will restart Explorer.

Once you have performed the big cleanup, each of the other Users on the System needs to be signed in to clean up their desktop and regain the right click.

There is another vbs included to do this. It is named Other Profiles Regfix.vbs

Have each User sign in and run Other Profiles Regfix.vbs
Open C:\ (Go to Start>Run and type C: Press enter) and Open the c:\desktopclean folder. Double click on Other Profiles Regfix.vbs

Explorer will be ended and that user's active desktop registry entries will be repaired. Explorer will be restarted.

To restore the desktop to whatever picture you normally have right click on a blank part of desktop & select properties/desktop & select your prefered picture press apply & then ok to exit and then press F5.

You will need to do this step for every user account.

let me know how things are.
Thanks dan

Hi Dan

Tried cleandesktop.
Rattled through up to "press F5" - nothing happened.
Had to reboot. Got desktop back on third reboot. First two reboots, it stalled at the welcome screen, played the jingle then eventually brought up the background picture, but no taskbar, icons, functions etc - this was part of the original problem, so probably coincidence that it did this after running cleandesktop.

Hi ism

Your problem doesn't seem malware related now.
May I suggest you visit one of these forums and ask in the software\hardware sections
http://forum.computertrouble.co.uk/index.php
http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?

A few things to help with possible threats in the future would be to download run and keep all these programs updated.
Adaware
spybot seach & destroy
spyware Blaster

Always keep windows patched and updated.
And it goes without saying do not open Email from someone you don't know.

To find some great guidelines to follow to prevent future infections you can read this article by Tony Klein.
