Hey Matt, how ya' doin' man? trumpetman51 here...I am the one that originally posted this topic...
As You know by having read my posts and Orange Blossom's replies, I am no longer having that problem and I am sure that soon you will not be having it either!!
Let me start by making it clear to you that I am NOT an official Bleeping Computer Advisor or Moderator or even a Senior Member, however, I would like to make a suggestion that is totally harmless, very easy to do, and COULD help you out!! You can try it or, of course, you can totally just ignore this and delete my message here....it's up to you!! I just KNOW what you are going through and have been there and would like to help if I can so I thought I could make this "first-step" type of suggestion. Everyone at BC has helped me SO MUCH that I feel like it is time for me to REACH BACK and GIVE BACK a little to others if I can!!
First of all, do you run a LOT of programs that start automatically with Windows? Are you running some type of Anti-Virus Program, and/or Firewall Software? Also, have you ever tried SCANNING your ENTIRE SYSTEM for "MALWARE" with a TRUSTWORTHY SCANNER such as Trend Micro's HOUSECALL? If not, you might want to consider doing that. You woun't be installing ANYTHING PERMANENTLY on your machine....only a harmless but helpful ActiveX browser addon that allows the Scanner to run and scan your system for adware, spyware, malware, grayware and just about every kind of "bad"ware there is out there. HOUSECALL will also CLEAN ANYTHING that it may find. It relly is an excellent "USE AS YOU NEED TO USE" TOOL for digging out something that may be already in your system and GETTING RID OF IT!!
Here is the link: http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/to...security_tools/
Now, if you decide to try this very helpful online scan tool, just follow that link and "Click" on the Icon (button) that says LAUNCH HouseCall FREE SCAN.....depending on the size of your drives and how files and folders that HouseCall needs to scan it will take a while...just be patient and see what it comes up with....it might find nothing BUT it just might find something that you have NO IDEA is LURKING SOMEWHERE, ALREADY living in your machine and it will get rid of it for you and provide you with information about it.
Take my word...HouseCall is a very SAFE and very PRODUCTIVE SCAN and it is WELL WORTH the time if you have never tried it before. Just follow the step by step instructions and let it scan your WHOLE MACHINE...ALL DRIVES...anywhere where you have sved anything!!
Please let me know what you come up with after running HouseCall!!
Hang in there!!
"The right direction's all that counts and there's no way for me to get there late!!"
