Let's do a scan and see . If nothing we can move this topic.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I feel you will be better served now to post the original question in the XP forum at the top of the forum pages. Do you agree it's probably not malware that is the cause.

Edit actually you aer receiving assisstance here now...

okies, it isn't malware. I have posted in internal hardware/ xp and such. but yeah, you have bn the only peoson to respond to my posts :\ you responded to my other post, a more detailed one, saying exactly what is happening, saying it would be better it be better to delete everything and start afresh etc, and there would be no use tellin me the origin of the probs or whatever. But even so, there IS something not right with this pc. I am at a lost as to what I do now. I went to the asus site, and put in P4P800-E and got the motherboard up... I click on the raid drivers... and get the latest, and then it tells me it is the wrong chipset. I still can't find the media audiio conytroller. I installed another... but it is Still popping up when I reboot that it finds new hardware. How do I turn that and the raid off pls? :thumbsup:

I set up and loaded one of that family of asus motherboards when they came out, it was technically one of the most challenging things I had done at the time

I had been building my own computers for several years already

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
