Okay, I tried installing Hijack but the PC wouldn't let me. Tried installing other software but no go, i.e. norton system works, maxmem, bazooka.
Also any software that required a reboot would not go through. Other files that came up as not responding were cookrsrc.exe and rpctime.exe. Programs that I pulled of the startup menu and placed thier icons on the desktop were mywebsearch email plugin and kleenvalue. Finally I was able to install Trend Micro's AntiSpyware 3.0 This did not require a reboot and I was able to run it. WOWSA it found 839 objects, 239 just in the registry. Deleted them and rebooted. Then the laptop did not turn back on, Oh No!
But alas I forgot I still had a floppy inserted that I copied the TM AS log onto.
So I pulled it out and rebooted again. System came up and the Microsoft Antispyware was working, so was the Computer Associates EZ ARMOR that comes with SBC DSL, so much for those antispyware programs, but will run both now that they are able to work. Also the Trend Micro program caught some programs that were trying to reinstall in the startup again, but I denied these applications, hopefully they are not needed by XP. The files that tried to reinstall are listed as follows, have no idea what they are.
Registry (HKU): C:\Winnt\system32\ineasv.exe
" " " " " \ineasv.exe again
" " " " " \rtcses.exe
" " " " " \mmf_ic.exe
" " " " " \ineasr.exe for the 3rd time
and under the I.E. Plugins that was trying to reinstall was this one
to which I instructed Trend Micro to also deny.
After I run Microsoft AntiSpyware and Computer Associates EZ Armor I will try to run Hijack This and post the results here later on. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I forgot to mention on the original post that the HardDrive light was conitnually on.
Also another program that was not responding that I had to keep clicking on "End Program" about 3 or 4 times was "cloudsim.exe"
