Slow computer

Unread postby gmpowers » July 28th, 2008, 9:15 pm


Just wanted to post my HJT log to see if there is anything affecting my computer. Also I don't know why but recently I had computer troubles and used this forum to get rid of some malare but now when I use windows media player it asks for my windows security validation code. I no longer have the Windows CD so I cannot use it anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

Well it says invalid product key-but media player worked before I had the vmundo problem so I'm not sure what's going on.

Well as it says invalid product key, I can't give you further assistance.

If you feel that your product key is valid, please contact Microsoft.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
