My computer has been acting very strange again. I've used this site once before and I was wondering if you can help me fix my problem again? Here is my hijack this log.

Hi and welcome back :thumbsup:

I don't see anything in your log that jumps out.
Can you describe the problem please?

lets also do this:

Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune and save it to your Desktop.

http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1

Double click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Check the boxes to the left of:

Windows Temp
Current User Temp
All Users Temp
Temporary Internet Files
Prefetch
Java Cache

The rest are optional - if you want to remove the lot, check "Select All".
Finally click Empty Selected. When you get the "Done Cleaning" message, click OK.

If you use the Firefox or Opera browsers, you can use this program as a quick way to tidy those up as well.

When you have finished, click on the Exit button in the Main menu.

Then....

Using Internet Explorer please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner

Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be promted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
      • Extended (If available otherwise Standard)
    • Scan Options:
      • Scan Archives
      • Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan select My Computer
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.
*Note
It is recommended to disable onboard antivirus program and antispyware programs while performing scans so no conflicts and to speed up scan time.
Please don't go surfing while your resident protection is disabled!
Once scan is finished remember to re-enable resident antivirus protection along with whatever antispyware app you use.

Thanks :flowers:
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!

For dessert; can I have a bowl of the freshest worms you have please?.

Never Give Up!

hey blender,

sorry about the very late reply. I have been away and so i could not scan my computer. here is the kaspersky scan. the problems i'm having with my computer is that my computer screen will go black every once in a while. it will turn on shortly after and a message will pop up saying my video card has been reset. also whenever i close or open a screen some wispy black lines appear on my desktop and they wont come off. Other time my screen will turn off and then all my desktop images will show up in a much bigger picture.

here is the kasper scan

Hi

Log looks good.
I think more likely either a corrupt driver for your video card or the card itself is loose or on its way out.
I don't think malware related.

You have the cd with your video/motherboard drivers?

Is your video integrated with the motherboard or seperate card?
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!

For dessert; can I have a bowl of the freshest worms you have please?.

hey

Yesterday I made a mistake when i said that "the message was saying my video card has been reset." It said my VPU graphics accelerator had been reset (sorry my bad). I think this maybe why I have wispey lines and why my computer turns on and off and restarts. Is there a way to fix my graphic accelerator on the computer? Sorry about my mix up.

I think my video card is intergrated with my motherboard.

I dont think I have the cd, but ill continue to check.

Hi

I am not one of the best hardware garus. Basically I just do malware.
I'll see if one of the guys will pop in & check. Those guys will know much better than I how to guide you to fix or at least figure out the problem.
To me though it sounds like you are overheating.

Can you post this info in the meantime?

Right click "my computer" then "properties".
In the general tab post the Processor info, ammount of RAM.

Click the "hardware" tab
Click "device manager"
Scroll down to "Display Adapters" & expand it.

What is the info displayed there please?

Is there any Yellow ! or red X beside the graphics?

Couple other questions?

Do you "overclock" the graphics or the processor?
Do you know if the fans inside the computer are functioning? Clogged with dust bunnies?

If you know your motherboard name & model that would be good info to post as well.

Thanks :thumbsup:

<<edit to ask more info>>

Hi

I have 1 GB of RAM. The Info of my display adapters are: Radeon X800 series and Radeon X800 series secondary. I have no red X or Yellow ! beside them.

What does "overclock" mean?

I'll check for any dust bunnies in my computer ( I think there might be some of those buggers in there :thumbsup: )
Can dust really cause this problem?

I'm not sure about my motherboard name and model I will have to check

Thanks :flowers:

Hi :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info.
Ammount of Ram sounds fine.

If you don't know what overclock means...chances are you didn't.
Basically it means to make the hardware (processor/video card) run at a higher speed than it was set up at factory.

If there are dust bunnies in the computer it can overheat. Dust = no air flow.
If it overheats yoou can crash and/or trash the motherboard componets including add-on cards.

You will want to open the case to see that the cards & cables are nice & snug. Sometimes they loosen up.
Make sure the computer is OFF though.
Before fiddling around inside touch the case to drain any static from your body.
Static is BAD for computer parts.

Wouldn't hurt to check & make sure your RAM is snug too while you are there.

Nice little program that can help you find motherboard info (and tons of other stuff) is AIDA32.
Free download here:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/Aida32_-_Enterpr...ation_d183.html

Save the zip> unzip to its own folder> run aida32.exe.
Once it loads...

Click the + beside "motherboard" at left
Click "motherboard" in expanded tree
At right it should tell you the "motherboard name".
For example mine is ASROCK GE Pro-M2
I'll have an order of massive trojan attack please with a side order of rootkit and virus dip.
Pre-course order of fresh spyware salad please with a side order of polymorphic dressing.
And to drink...a nice tall glass of adware!
