Mysterious "Windows installer"

Unread postby Penimagic » November 21st, 2010, 10:39 am

My Vista PC is running really slowly - Task Manager says 60-80% of CPU, even when I'm not running anything.
There is a Windows Installer box opens up and although it goes eventually because it says it can't find the server, it can take up to 20 minutes to do this, and meanwhile everything is sooooo slow. There is a cancel button, and it says it's cancelling, but it doesn't go away. I have no idea what it is or what it's for.

Hi Penimagic,
------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. (Right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1:5643
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [SpybotSD TeaTimer] C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\TeaTimer.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe Reader Speed Launcher] "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\Reader_sl.exe"
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [swg] "C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe"
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Google Update] "C:\Users\Penny\AppData\Local\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe" /c [color]

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
[color=red]------------------------------------------------

Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:

Adobe Reader 8.2.5
Java(TM) 6 Update 20
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1
Spybot - Search & Destroy
Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2.20
Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
If the Spybot Uninstaller asks whether you want to remove all files and settings, answer YES. If it reports that it cannot remove all files, that's OK.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
---------------------------------------------
  1. Please download OTL.exe by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  2. Right click on OTL.exe and select Run As Administrator to run it. If Windows UAC prompts you, please allow it.
  3. Click on the Run Scan button at the top left hand corner.
  4. OTL will start running. When done, 2 Notepad files will open; OTL.txt and Extras.txt.
    They will be saved on your desktop.
    Please post the contents of these files.
    You may use separate replies if you wish.
