If I am posting in the wrong area...I do apologize


I have been experiencing for the past couple of weeks this irritating popup ...

"svchost.exe - No Disk ..insert disk into drive A"


This thing pops up every 5 mins and is seriously getting on my nerves.

Can anyone tell me what this is and how do I rectify this annoyance?

Here's the Hijack log.

Thanks so much

Arrina

Hello arrina_kiss,


Download haxfix.exe
and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on haxfix.exe to install haxfix. (standard installation path is c:\program Files\haxfix)
  • Checkmark "Create a desktop icon"
  • Click "Next"

  • Click "Finish"

A red "dos window" (dos box) will open with options:
1. Make logfile
2. Run auto fix
3. Run manual fix
E. Exit Haxfix
  • Select option 1. Make logfile by typing 1 and then pressing Enter
  • Haxfix will start scanning the computer. When it is finished a logfile will open: haxlog.txt
  • Copy the contents of that logfile and paste it into this thread. (c:\haxfix.txt)

*******************************************


Download KillBox to the desktop. Do not run it yet!

Download CCleaner and install it. (default location is best). Do not run it yet!

CCleaner Tutorial


*******************************************

Please boot into Safe Mode

How to Reboot into Safe Mode
tap F8 key during reboot, until the boot menu appears...use the arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode" from the menu......,then press the "Enter" key. If that does not work this go to this site: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/




In Safe Mode, select the following with HijackThis.
With all windows (including this one!) closed (close browser/explorer windows), please select "fix."

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WindowsServicesStartup] C:\DOCUME~1\VAN\LOCALS~1\Temp\svchost.exe 1



Run Killbox program, in the field labeled "Full Path of File to Delete" copy and paste or enter

C:\DOCUME~1\VAN\LOCALS~1\Temp\svchost.exe

select the "Delete on Reboot" and click on the Red X(delete file) ,when it asks if you would like to Reboot now, press the Yes button

If you get a "PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process!" message then just restart manually.

*******************************************

*NOTE* CCleaner deletes EVERYTHING out of temp/temporary folders and does not make backups.

Let's empty the temp files:

Run CCleaner.

CAUTION: Please do NOT use the Issues button. This is a built-in registry cleaner. If you don’t know how to use it, you may cause irreparable damage to your system.

1. Starting with v1.27.260, CCleaner installs the Yahoo Toolbar as an option which IS checkmarked by default during the installation.
IF you do NOT want it, REMOVE the checkmark when provided with the option OR download the toolbarfree Basic version instead of the Standard Build.


2. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

3. Then select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:
• Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section except Cookies.
• Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section.
• Clean all entries in the "System" section.
• Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab:
• Clean all except cookies in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
• Clean all in the Opera section if you use it.
• Clean Sun Java in the Internet Section.
• Clean any others that you choose.

4. Click the "Run Cleaner" button.
5. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.
6. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.
7. Click "exit" when done.

If it asks you to reboot at the end, click NO.

CCleaner should be run with the above settings for each User Account!

*******************************************


Finally, post a new Hijackthis log, haxlog.txt and tell me how your computer is running.

Thank you for responding Sifu Mike,

Did the haxfix...easy

Got to the Jave site and did the dowmload for the newer version of Java...HOWEVER, it is not giving it to me an .exe file & it does not give the the one you told me to get.

You said : Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language jre-6-windows-i586.exe and save to your desktop.

When I go to get it, I do not get that option.
What I get is: Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language jre-6u1-windows-i586-p.exe or Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language jre-6u1-windows-i586-p-iftw.exe

When I D/L either.. I recieve it as a .jnlp w/a "funky" icon . (i know, real technical term there..lol )

Now what?

Thank you again for any help you throw my way.

Arrina
