I am working on a friends Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows Vista. When the desktop comes up there is an internet explorer box that pops up imbedded in the desktop background that comes up with the "Cannot display webpage". I can not figure out how to cut that off. I have limited start up items and have used task manager to see what is running and I can't figure out how cut it off. Thanks for any help.

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Re-run Autoruns, go to "Logon" tab and UN-check following entries:

+ "DellComms"
+ "dellsupportcenter"
+ "IgfxTray"
+ "Persistence"

Restart computer. Same issue?

Thanks for the help. I just rebooted and it hasn't popped up yet, but sometimes it takes a little while before it does. I have ran malwarebytes and cleaned a few problems off and then I just ran spybot search and destroy. It found 4 more files, but would only delete 2 because I "didn't have administrator priveleges". There is only one account on the computer and it is an administrator account. I guess something has definitely hijacked parts of the account.

Thanks again.

These are the two files it says I do not have administrator priveleges to delete in Spybot Search and Destroy.


Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.AntiVirusOverride: [SBI $3604910C] Settings (Registry change, fixing failed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusOverride

Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallOverride: [SBI $0C94D702] Settings (Registry change, fixing failed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallOverride

Good :huh:
Keep me posted.

Regarding Spybot...
It's really a tool of the past and I'd simply uninstall it.
As for those registry keys, let's see what they say...

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Vista users:: Right click on SystemLook.exe, click Run As Administrator
  • Copy the content of the following box into the main textfield:
    :reg
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusOverride
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallOverride
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Gotcha about spybot. Before I read your reply I went and enabled the hidden administrator account at cmd prompt and then ran sypbot from the new admin account and it cleaned them. I will try the the directions in you last reply now. Thanks for the help. Great website. While not as knowledgeable as most here I will try to help out when I can. Thanks again.
