Posted 28 June 2011 - 02:58 AM

Programs keep freezing every few seconds or so, but when I monitor the Task Manager whenever this happens, CPU doesn't go beyond 50%. This is actually the latest of problems I've had since yesterday, and I suspect one of my steps might have caused this. Starting from the beginning...

Yesterday I started up and some windows and dialog boxes had no visible text, just buttons, and at times the buttons and windows themselves were stretched horizontally. After a tip on the net I thought it a problem with a corrupted user profile. The solution was to log on to another user and delete the ntuser.dat file for that user, and then log back on. Which I did. Problem solved. And then another one showed up.

Once I started working I kept getting an error when trying to log in to SQL Server Management Studio, something like "Access to the registry key '...\Microsoft SQL Server\90\tools\ShellSEM' is denied". When I logged out of that user and then logged on, I eventually couldn't even start some programs from Shortcuts, as errors about paths not being found popped up. Couldn't find a solution for this so I just made a new profile and used that.

The profile worked fine, but I'd get freezing problems every now and then. I ignored this and chalked it up to me running anti-virus scanners while I had IDEs up and running, but now the freezing's gotten much more frequent and a bigger hindrance, and I'm not even running the scanners anymore.

If it will help, I ran HijackThis. Here's the log:

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

Click on the Watch Topic Button and select Immediate Notification and click on proceed, this will help you to get notified faster when I have replied and make the cleaning process faster.

In order for me to see the status of the infection I will need a new set of logs to start with.
