Log file is attached.

Had a new HD installed not too long ago and not too long after i started having some issues. Seems the computer loves to crash now and while I am well aware that this can be a hardware issue I would very much like to have an IT Pro look over my goods to make sure it isn't a software door left open somewhere or worse. I need this computer to keep fresh on ESRI classes for my work so any help is appreciated. I am patient enough to wait the week needed. Thanks for all the help guys, i look forward to being one of you in a few years when i finish my comp sci/comp forensics degree :)

Happy Hijacking.

Delete these folders in bold.

Please run Notepad and copy the following text into a new file:

sc config Application Updater start= disabled
sc stop Application Updater
sc delete Application Updater


Save the file to the desktop as remove.bat and make sure the "Save as type" field says "All files". Locate remove.bat on the Desktop and double-click on it to run it. A DOS box will open and close, that is normal.
If any errors errors encountered please post.
When done you can delete the remove.bat file.

p.s. On a Vista/Windows7 Operating System run the remove.bat file as Administrator.

Restart the computer normally.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.

If needed.
The scan will also create this Attach.txt log I would also like to see the content.
Please post it in a other post for my review, do not attach the file.
