  1. I'm at the church trying this out again.

    However, in my haste i did not notice that laptop does not have ports for a non-USB keyboard and mouse. I believe i get freeze whenever I hit "enter" particularly after I've gotten the services and controller app error. Does that ring any bells?

  2. Then chances are the router is OK.

    Give this a try

    Go to Start->Run->Type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS Window will be displayed. At the command prompt, type the following and press Enter after each line:

    IPCONFIG /release

    IPCONFIG /flushdns

    IPCONFIG /renew

    IPCONFIG /registerdns

    netsh winsock reset

    netsh int ip reset

    regsvr32 netshell.dll

    regsvr32 netcfgx.dll

    regsvr32 netman.dll


    Ok, cursor/keyboard freezes when i type. In safe mode w/networking as admin or user, the run dialog box just blinks.

    Even in safe mode w/command, same freeze up when start typing. I left machine on for a good 3 hours and sure enough when I came back it was still stuck at MSDOS window and what I had tried to type in still hadn't shown up.

  3. Can not turn system restore back on: "encountered an error trying to enable/disable one or more drives. Please restart your machine."

    I tried as admin in safe mode with networking and then was told there were no restore points available. I'm pretty sure I saved a point when I removed the infections...????

  4. I'm sorry, I never received notification that this thread was up, let alone that you had posted a response.

    I also posted in another forum. Should I continue here as well? MBAM log mentioned adware.Asksbar as one of found infections. (I thought I had saved to a cd before laptop's drive stopped working but can't locate.) I am posting link to other post so you can advise on how best to proceed.



  5. Good afternoon.

    I am trying to save our pastor's ThinkPad R50 that was hit by a worm; research/work i've done points to sasser or someting similar.

    I was able to run Malware and find and remove a lot of infections *adware.askSBAR). However, computer is still getting the errors, which I am assuming is because even though worm gone, whatever it changed is still in effect.

    System Shutdown: ....initiated by nt authority/system. Time before shutdown (countdown starts)

    Services and controller app: "has encountered an issue and is shutting down"

    Other errors (unrelated?) Symantec Email Proxy: can't scan your email ...not config

    Here's what's holding me up now:

    1. Laptop will not connect to Internet through ethernet or wireless, so I can't update straight to machine.

    2. CD drive has stopped working, diagnostic says driver not installed.

    3. USB ports not working.

    4. Laptop freezes when I try to type: for e.g. trying to use command prompt; entering a name and passkey while setting up wireless network; using search function. Also VERY long pauses after clicks.

    5. No system disks (XP, etc.) available. If they exist they're in another state...

    Laptop works "better" in safe mode with networking; meaning errors don't come up but full functionality still missing (typing in fields and keybord freezes). In regular mode, I work around shutdown by setting clock ahead. Couple times it didn't shutdown right away but (I believe) caused to the laptop to slow to a crawl.

    Maybe there is hope and a relatively simple (wink, wink) few steps will take me to the finish line. And assistance would be appreciated.


  6. Hello.

    I thought i finally had this licked after I ran Malware removal software and it found issues, which i thought i deleted.

    Still getting the same issues and all the steps to fix require using command line, or run, or typing information in a field.

    Thing is whenever i do, computer freezes, at least keyboard does. I can still clock moving and screen blinks but can't type. Even in safe mode.

    What in the HECK do i do to now if I can't type! One of the instructions is to use MSCONFIG but whenever I start to type it in it run it comes to a halt.

    Help anybody?

    I am trying to get an IBM r50 thinkpad back with windoxs xp (1985-2001) back up and running. I deduced that it has worm which caused initial problems, now trying to repair whatever worm screwed up.
