Today - could access Start no problem, and have installed your recommended programmes. Everything worked as normal, but then it froze when I tried to access Windows Explorer, so there is still an issue with that.

I don't understand the unreliability when it has been cleaned of all viruses and malware.

It has been updated from the MS site.

Hi ls123,

Looking at your log, I don't see any real sign of anything malicious. At this point in the game, I really don't think what you have going on is malware related. What we are going to try next may actually seem a little reverse of what I have told you, but hopefully this is going to help with your problem, and get your system back up and running where it should be. Please print these instructions to make it easier to follow along with.

Sometimes it is actually very possible to "over protect" a system. This "over protection" if you will, can actually lead to more system problems, affect system performance, and actually work to slow down the normal workings of your system. The new Service Pack for Windows XP (SP3) has actually been found to cause some significant problems if it is installed with various software protection programs running (programs like a firewall, different Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs, etc).

What I would like for you to do is to actually uninstall the Comodo firewall, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, and WinPatrol as well as any other anti-malware product you may have on your system, including Prevx. Essentially uninstall everything protection related, EXCEPT for your Anti-Virus. After you have done this, reboot your system.

Once the system comes back up after the reboot, please temporarily uninstall SP3 (Service Pack 3) from Add/Remove programs. Once again, once it has been uninstalled, please reboot your system.

After the reboot, please make sure the Windows Firewall is turned ON. Do this by going into the control panel, double clicking on "Windows Firewall" and making sure it is active. In addition, we need to make sure we clean out any temp files, and also defragment your hard drive.

Next please make sure that you completely DISABLE (NOT Uninstall) your Anti-Virus program. Usually this is accomplished by right clicking on the Anti-Virus icon in the task bar, next to the clock and choosing "Exit" or "Disable".

Once your Anti-Virus has been disabled, please reinstall Service Pack 3. After successfully updating your system (installing Service Pack 3) please reboot your system TWICE, and make sure your Anti-Virus is active once again.

At this point, you should have an updated system (with SP3 installed), with Windows Firewall active, and your Anti-Virus program active, essentially it should be bare bones...

At this point in the game, you can start with reinstalling some of the Anti-Malware applications. Go easy, I would suggest the MVPS Hosts file, Spybot (WITHOUT TeaTimer), and maybe WinPatrol. Keep it simple, and see how your system behaves. Hopefully by removing some of the "over protection" your system will have allowed the "good" registry changes and updates to take place, and your system will be returned back to a state of normalcy.

I know it sounds extreme, but hopefully by doing the above, we will be able to get you functional again. Please ask if you have any questions. Good luck, I will be anxiously awaiting to hear how it goes.

Many thanks Ken for your time.

I followed everything properly. I spent a lot of time cleaning up traces of programmes which were found everywhere, despite uninstalling them correctly, rebooting etc.

After everything I had a clean Avast scan, and all was OK. When I ran Spybot after updating and immunizing, it found 2 cookies: AdRevolver, and then everything froze again.

I rebooted from Task Manager, and I can't access from Start again now. Possibly it doesn't get on with Spybot, it's the only thing I've installed so far (after MS Update 3). Everything is fozen so I'm switching off now.

The freezing started after icons appeared on the desktop, and one is IP_Pattern_31.pat which I have no idea about.

Hi ls123,

Unfortunately I really don't see anything in your log that would explain exactly what is happening. I do feel confident that it is not malware related however. I think as it stands right now, you basically have two options available to you:

  1. You may use the following link to go to the CastleCops General Computer Problems forum for help from a CastleCops SRT...
    http://www.castlecops.com/f120-General_ ... blems.html
    I recommend that you register before posting your problem. Registered members can receive notification when there has been a reply to their topic. There is no way for CCSP to notify "guests" when they have received a reply.

  2. The second option would be to complete a total reformat / reinstall of your operating system. I can't tell for sure exactly what was done by using the registry cleaners that you did. It could very well be possible that it has damaged your registry beyond what is visible, and we will never be able to "get it back where it was". This may sound drastic but under the circumstances it might be the best case scenario.


The choice is yours. I wish you luck in whatever you decide, and I hope you find a quick resolution.

Ken

I really appreciate your time Ken.

The freezing started before I went near the registry, and AVG had let through trojans which must have done the damage.

I don't think I can avoid reinstallation, since we've tried everything. Thanks for the link - I'll pass my headache on to them for one last attempt!

Best wishes.
