Hi there, over the last couple of weeks my pc has being doing loads of weird stuff. >My home page is always about blank, until I change it, but after a restart always goes back to " about blank"

I cant install ad aware, spybot or ewido.

I have Mcafee antivirus and avg which both tell me I have no virus, but avg tells me the following.

File ....user32.dll CHANGE
File ..... ntoskrnl.exe CHANGE
File ....hosts CHANGE

The path of those 3 files is C:\WINDOWS\system32 and then the file name

Here is my log....I hope someone can help

Hello guflink and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing I see is that there are 2 anti-virus programs running on the system. This can cause many issues for the operating system. Keep the one you want and uninstall the other (either McAfee or AVG).

Next, let's run a different scanner and see what it shows us.

Download WinPFind3u.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.
  • Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
  • Under Additional Scans click the checkboxes in front of the following items to select them:
    • Reg - Desktop Components
      Reg - Policy Settings
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
Use the Add Reply button and Copy/Paste the information back here. I will review it when it comes in. If, after posting, the last line is not < End of Report > then the log is too big to fit into a single post and you will need to split it into multiple posts.

Cheers.

Hi Ot, thanks for the help.

Removed AVG.

Downloaded WinPFind3u.exe checked the Desktop Components box, but there is no option called Reg - Policy Settings. Anyway, i have tried to scan 3 times now, and every time the program ends up " not responding"

Any ideas?

Hi guflink. The latest version doesn't have a Policy Settings checkbox anymore. It is now a part of the standard scan.

Sometimes the operating system will say the program is not responding when it is still working because it is churning through the hard drive. If the hard drive light is flashing then it is still processing files so let it run. Depending on the system, if it doesn't finish in 30 minutes then it has stopped for some reason. Try it in Safe Mode then.

Cheers.

Hi OT, ok, get this, i tried to start in safe mode using the F8 method and this wouldnt work, so i set my pc to always start in safe mode using .....run, msconfig and selecting the option to start in safe mode. I am given the option to start in safe mode, safe mode with prompt or last know good settings. Which ever i choose, my pc restarts and comes back to the start in safe mode screen with the three options of how to start up. So it is basically just going round in a loop. I cant get to my desktop. I am writting this from work as it is my home pc that has the problem . I am totally stuck now, any help would be a god-send.

Hi guflink. That's bad. MsConfig should never be used to boot the system to Safe Mode. If the system has a problem getting into Safe Mode MsConfig doesn't change anything other than forcing the system to only boot to Safe Mode. And since it can't get into Safe Mode to begin with the system gets stuck in an endless loop.

The options to fix this are kind of limited. It depends on what disks are available. We can:
  • If you have any XP CD and the system has a floppy drive or other drive like a flash drive that can be used to transfer a file then we can use Recovery Console to copy the boot.ini file to another machine, edit it and then copy it back to this machine.
  • If you have a Windows XP CD we can try a repair install of Windows. This will reinstall the operating system and leave everything else intact. This will only work if the CD is the same operating system level as what is currently on the machine. For example, if the XP CD is SP1 and the machine has been upgraded to SP2 then this option will not work.
  • If you have an XP CD that is a different OS level than what is currently installed you can format/reinstall the entire OS. This will wipe out all programs and data currently on the hard drive
  • If there are only Recovery Disks that came with the system then those can be used but using them will wipe out all current programs and data on the hard drive and set it to the condition it was in when it came from the manufacturer.
  • The hard drive can be pulled out and put in another computer as a slave so the boot file can be edited
Let me know what you have available.

Cheers.
