acer aspire Win XP pro Media centre edition version 2002 Service pack 3
No installation CD. It came pre-installed when I bought it Installation CD excluded.

I used to have the same problem as written here in this post


. Computer freezes average 2/hour. before it completely freezes i can still move my cursor, alt+ctrl+dlt, check cpu performance 50%-100%. A few seconds later it completely freezes. Googled the problem, found topic 455983, understood to a certain extend(little) what the problem is(had basic(super basic lowest tier) computer lessons back in school). regedit, deleted old keys, was careful not to delete the important ones, faced deletion were stuff like commandandconquer decade, tiberium wars kanes wrath etc. bleckko.com, shopperreports etc those kind of keys.
the computer wasn't freezing as often anymore, got it running for a long while, close to 2 months i think, before it freezed during one of my games if it lags too much like 0.5 frame/sec. and thats the problem i'm having now. some of my games lag now which didn't before. this started a few days ago. games like company of heroes, grand theft auto san andreas, blackshot. read bc forum post on slow computers. Ran avast a/v found some infections on some random files eg bf3 downloaded from the web my brother's handiwork. had them deleted. ran antispyware found some adware etc eg shoppersreport(there were more of these? i didnt know) got rid of them. services.msc/msconfig startup selection turned off unnescessary stuff, disk clean up/ccleaner, chckdsk, defrag, pagedefrag, finally i ran registry cleaner. no improvements. so i waved the white flag and decided to post the problem here.
i understand you guys are volunteers you dont get paid or anything but i'd really really appreciate it if you could help. maybe, if you guys are too busy, let me know where i can learn to do what you guys do eg books etc i was contemplating joining that bc malware removal training class but i dont think i can keep up with the pace. i have some books back from computer class basic computer maintenance operations stuff, networking, computer animations, programming they're pretty useful when i need them so if i got some sort of malware removal for dummies book maybe next time i could do it myself.. and maybe for others too. Much Appreciated!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

I am HelpBot: an automated program designed to help the Bleeping Computer Staff better assist you! This message contains very important information, so please read through all of it before doing anything.

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.

To help Bleeping Computer better assist you please perform the following steps:


Posted Image In order to continue receiving help at BleepingComputer.com, YOU MUST tell me if you still need help or if your issue has already been resolved on your own or through another resource! To tell me this, please click on the following link and follow the instructions there.

CLICK THIS LINK >>> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/logreply/462601 <<< CLICK THIS LINK

If you no longer need help, then all you needed to do was the previous instructions of telling me so. You can skip the rest of this post. If you do need help please continue with Step 2 below.


Posted Image If you still need help, I would like you to post a Reply to this topic (click the "Add Reply" button in the lower right hand of this page). In that reply, please include the following information:

  • If you have not done so already, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • A new DDS and GMER log. For your convenience, you will find the instructions for generating these logs repeated at the bottom of this post.
    • Please do this even if you have previously posted logs for us.
    • If you were unable to produce the logs originally please try once more.
    • If you are unable to create a log please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • Upon completing the above steps and posting a reply, another staff member will review your topic and do their best to resolve your issues.

Thank you for your patience, and again sorry for the delay.


We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • 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.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit Scanner.

Please note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, you should not bother creating a GMER log.

Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log

As I am just a silly little program running on the BleepingComputer.com servers, please do not send me private messages as I do not know how to read and reply to them! Thanks!
