Just a quick Hi & Hello to everyone out there.

Thought it might be a good idea to update to HJ 2.0.4, run a scan and send it in for analysis. Not that I am actually aware of any issues - let's call it a preventative visit to the doctor's office. Hopefully there will not be anything to be concerned about. If there is, I am pretty adept and following punch-list steps to fix my issues.

Besides this intro, there is ONE nagging thing I am encountering that the "wonderful" support reps from ASUS misled me on. My MB # M3N78-VM would lockup sometimes during a reboot. No rhyme or reason. They suggested I pull the battery and reset the BIOS/CMOS to the factory settings.

Did that, "no issues", except....

- no built in floppy drive, use an external 3.5" Mitsumi USB drive
>>> following their reset, it does not get recognized as the A: drive, but ALWAYS as the B: drive

- 2 internal HDD, but I want to utilize my 1 TB HDD to backup my internal drives
>>> following their reset, NO external HDD via the USB port is recognized

They say "recommend" downloading the newest & greatest BIOS update and flashing it over. Anyone else have a better suggestions since they led me wrong once already?!

What version of Windowx is installed?

As for HJT...it hasn't been used as a diagnostic tool for malware at this website...for quite some time.

If you suspect that you have malware issues...we have two forums which assist members with those.

a. Am I Infected, What Do I Do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum103.html

b. Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html

If you provide specific details concerning what problems you are encountering...and what O/S is installed...we can move this post to what appears to be the appropriate forum. See the note at the top of this screen...pertaining to the purpose of the Introductions forum.
