Hello--

I have a desktop computer running Windows XP, sp2. For several weeks now, I have had an ongoing problem with my computer functionality. Frequently, while attempting to open a program, instead a window pops up, declaring "______ has encountered a problem and needs to close." This has happened for any number of different programs, including (in no particular order) Automatic Update, Run a DLL as an App, IE and Firefox, HijackThis, WMI and Windows Logon UI.

I thought that I had done something to my registry (because I had opened it, to get rid of any last mentions of Norton), so I downloaded and used Registry Mechanic. (It found 500+ errors the first time I used it.) Now, the problem seems to occur only every OTHER time I start the computer. (Registry Mechanic is set to run at startup, and it, too, finds some errors--every other time the computer starts up.)

I started up in Safe Mode last night and ran Kaspersky Anti-virus; it found nothing. I also ran Ad-Aware, and it found nothing but the usual tracking cookies. The problem still existed this morning. When it did exist, I couldn't start a browser or Hijackthis (see above); after running Registry Mechanic and restarting, I was able to do both.

(Moderator edit: log post moved to Team Forum for analysis and Member help. jgweed)

Here's my HijackThis log:

Oh, and there is also an error message that pops up every time I start the computer: "This database is too old,please click ok button to upgrade it." Don't know if that's related, but I thought I'd mention it. (And I've stopped clicking the ok button.)

Thanks in advance for any help, and please let me know if you need more information.

Hello Ken J and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I don't see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

There is a bit of housekeeping that should be done to remove items with no information so let's do that while you are here.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customize/.../search/ie.html

O20 - Winlogon Notify: WRNotifier - C:\WINDOWS\

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Automated registry cleaners like Registry Mechanic can provide some useful information regarding registry entries but you really need to examine each line they want to remove. Since there are none that know every registry entry and they want to remove anything they do not know about they can sometimes remove legitimate entries that can cause the operating system to not function properly. I would not recommend having Registry Mechanic run on each startup unless you can review exactly what it is that they are trying to "fix".

Since this does not appear to be related to any viruses or malware and you already have a topic started int he XP forum I would suggest continuing to work with the techs there. They are the ones who deal with operating system, performance and application issues. Let them know that you have been to this forum and that no malware was found. It might be required to do a repair install of the operating system to get it back to working order.

Cheers.

You are welcome Ken J.I am sure the techs in the XP forum will be able to sort things out.

I will now close this topic. If you have any new malware related questions or issues in the future please start a new topic.

Cheers.
