I've been occasionally putting my computer into sleep mode to reduce the CPU usage and so far there hasn't been a problem, but recently, I heard a bit of a beep from my computer, and I'm concerned for it.

 

There are only two occasions where I heard the beeping, but in those times, they were of the short, "point five second" variety. I looked up what the beep codes are, but I can't quite put my finger on which one is which, though I'm thinking it's nothing seriously wrong if it's just one or two short beeps.

 

For the record:

  • Version is Vista 6.0.6000 Build 6000
  • Processor is Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU @ 2.40GHz, 2400 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
  • BIOS Version is Phoenix Technologies, LTD 5.09, with the Date being 08/06/2007

Do I need to include more information? Is my computer okay? Is the problem more serious than I can bare?

We need the make and model of this computer.

 

How many beeps are there and are they in a specific pattern?

 

When does the bee occur?  Wake up, etc.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

  • System Model: GM441AA-ABA m8125x
  • System Manufacturer: HP-Pavilion
  • It's just one or two short, point five second beep(s) and that's it. No actual pattern.
  • The beep occurs when I wake it up, in between the actual action to waking it up (which is clicking on my mouse) to actually waking up (seeing the computer screen and not a black screen)... I think the beep(s) occured when I saw the black screen with the mouse cursor, though it goes to the actual desktop unscathed once everything is done.

How often do you reboot the computer...daily?

 

Clean up the temp files, logs, cookies, etc. using Ccleaner. During install you will need to UNcheck any offer of a toolbar such as Yahoo.

Use the default settings. No need to use the Registry Cleaning Tool....it could cause problems.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

After clean up, defragment the hdd unless you have Windows installed on a SSD.

 

Do a scan for adware using AdwCleaner Download. Allow it to remove whatever it finds. Post the log back here if it finds anything.

You mean put it to sleep? Not on a daily basis. It depends on if the CPU usage is about 40% or above when idle, if it is, I put it to sleep for a minute then wake it up.

 

And I've ran AdwCleaner, but when I put it in execution, I was scared that it'd destroy my computer.

I mean reboot. Not put in sleep mode or hibernate. Shut down...then restart....known as reboot.

 

When you ran AdwCleaner, did it report a lot of files to be removed? Is the removal/ delete of those files what frightens you?

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AdwCleaner:

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Clean.
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Oh, not that often. If I have to give a "once every" statistic, either once or twice a week I shut it down, leave it off for a minute and turn it back on. I shut it down every day when I go to bed.

 

When you ran AdwCleaner, did it report a lot of files to be removed? Is the removal/ delete of those files what frightens you?

Yeah. Closed nearly every process and the thing wasn't responding. I almost thought my computer was going to keel over. I did let it remove some adware on my computer, so that's good... I guess I can give you this log:

Your computer has a lot of adware/ crapware installed on it. If you did not allow AdwCleaner to remove all it found, then rerun allow it to do so. A reboot will be necessary.

 

You need to do more scanning and remove whatever the programs linked below find.

 

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

check for database definition updates through the program's interface before scanning.

  • After completing the scan, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab .
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes when done.
  • Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.

Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner    (you may need to exit your antivirus security program(s) that may block the ESET scanning)

  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

The reason I asked about how often you reboot is because rebooting will release all of the files stored in memory. That often is a solution

for programs that leak memory and cause problems in sleep mode. Once a day is usually sufficient.

Ah, well, that's a good thing, right?

 

As for the AdwCleaner, I've decided I'd let it clean through what I considered had been a thorn on my side for a while, since that way I can actually do the rebooting process.
