Posted 27 August 2009 - 10:04 AM


Was using my laptop with a usb internet connection and all of a sudden the computer froze. When I restarted it, it kept saying that it my usb device had malfunctioned. But the modem still works on my friend's laptop. The cpu is now stuck at 100%, but task manager doesn't show any obvious culprit. It won't connect to any other usb devices now either. Otherwise it runs, but of course, very very slowly.

Was using Avast and zone alarm. Have done a system restore, cleaned out the system registry using isyscleaner, cleared out firefox private data and cookies, ran a virus scan using avast and have downloaded and run a adaware and malwarebytes scan. Nuthin.

The only other thing I can say is that I am currently in northern India, and its monsoon, so there is a bit of moisture and static electricity around which can sometimes stuff around with laptops. Pulled out my battery and discharged the power using the power on button, but no luck there.

Suspect an attack from the net, perhaps assisted by some nastie from a friends usb stick. I scan and clean em all, but you never know.

Any help/advice really appreciated.

ok, managed to find an 8gig dvd and get a 6 month old back up image of my c drive partition onto it, then the image onto the d drive in my computer and used acronis to restore my c drive.

Problem with the cpu remains! FFFFFFlipping heck! So, perhaps its not a malware problem then, unless it is possible for that to jump straight into my c drive from my partitioned d drive on boot up and do all its damage once more!

ok, just to confirm, no advice needed anymore. spent a fair bit of time reformatting and the like and after getting it back "half working" again (cpu 100% and no usb drives) I suspect i have fried something inside my computer related to the usbs. some indian friends who have been helping out will send it to a mate to look at it, but I reckon its a gonner, so have ordered myself a sweet little netbook to tide myself over.... ...might have to pump up the magnification in my specs too, we'll see.

ok, so enough talking to myself. out.
