Need help with slow running computer + errors


Recommended Posts

Ok let me start out by saying thank you to anyone that does/can help me out with any problems that i have.

So where to start, im not a real computer savvy person so you will have too excuse me for slow replys as i will have to speak to my friend to help me out with anything that you ask me too do, so i do not mess anything up.

As for the problems i am having, recently my computer has been runnng extremely slow and at times my computer is running at or near close to 100% usage on my CPU at all times. Even though my computer is not even that bad. I spoke to a friend of mine that recommended downloading ADW cleaner, but when i tried to download it, it threw an error at me saying that it was not a valid Win32 application. So my friend connected to me via teamviewer and transfered the exe onto my computer and i got it running that way. And by the look off the txt file it gave on reboot of the computer it was a fair amount of stuff that was deleted.

After that my friend recommended me too come over here to this forum to ask for some possible help to clean up my computer and running smooth again, as all this is really starting to depress me. In between all the errors im getting when i am trying to do stuff and the general slow performance i am now getting out of my computer i just feel like getting my computer completely wiped clean, but i thought i would try this out before doing so to see if it is salvagable.

So upon coming this site i read about downloading and running Malware Anti-Malware which i tried to do, but again it gave me an error when trying to download it. So again my friend downloaded the exe and transfered it too me via Teamviwer and i installed it. But when i opened the program it said it was out of date and i tried to update it, but it then gave me another error saying "An error has accured please report this issue to our support team(Include the content of all error message(s) and code(s) in your submisison). PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING (0,0, Incomplete transfer)

So i was unable to get it updated and running. Though i have got and ran the DDS program you required and have attached them to this post.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance for any help you can provide on getting this sorted out.

Hi there MrCharlie and thank you for your rapid response.

 

I have tried to download the RogueKiller 64 Bit. But unfortunately the web page seems to be offline. I have asked my friend to check it also in case it was just my end. But it is down his end also.

Is it possible that you have another download link that i can get that from ? Would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, so i tried the 32bit version. I downloaded it fine and ran the scan, It finds 3 problems on the computer but shortly after my computer just completely locks up and i am unable to Ctrl+Alt+Del to even see what is the problem. Which results in me having to use the reset button on the front of my computer to restart it all. This has happened 2 times. Any advice you can give there ?

I see you have Ad-Aware, Norton and Defender on the system, including 2 firewalls.

This is no good.

Having two anti-virus programs running on a system only causes poor performance, conflicts and spotty protection.

Pick one as your anti-virus and uninstall/disable the others.

How to Disable Defender

Dangers of running 2 anti-virus programs

-------------------------------------------------------------------

See if you can delete these using RogueKiller:

¤¤¤ Browser Addons : 2 ¤¤¤

[FF][PUP] 775a4hqe.default : mysearchdial.com

Run RogueKiller again and click Scan

When the scan completes > click on the Browser Addons tab

Put a check next to all of these and uncheck the rest: (if found)

 

[FF][PUP] 775a4hqe.default : MySearchDial NewTab

[FF][PUP] 775a4hqe.default : mysearchdial.com

Next:

Please download and run ComboFix.

The most important things to remember when running it is to disable all your malware programs and run Combofix from your desktop.

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please make sure you click download buttons that look similar to this, not "sponsored ad links":

bleep-crop.jpg

Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

Information on disabling your malware programs can be found Here.

Make sure you run ComboFix from your desktop.

Give it at least 30-45 minutes to finish if needed.

Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

 

---------->NOTE<----------

If you get the message Illegal operation attempted on registry key that has been marked for deletion after you run ComboFix....please reboot the computer, this should resolve the problem. You may have to do this several times if needed.

Ok, sorry for the time between your reply and this reply. I was having some trouble with the Roguekiller making my computer unresponsive a few times, even resulting in me having to reinstall my wireless card drivers again a couple of times. But i went into SAFE Mode, and everything ran fine after that. Again whilst doing all this, i have to have my friend download the files from his side and transfer them over to me via Teamviewer as the files always seem to hang @ 1% left on the download and then i get some error message saying it failed for some reason. But at least i am able to get ahold of the programs you are asking me too get.

 

So going through the list of stuff you asked me to do i have:

 

  • Ran Roguekiller and deleted the 2 objects you asked me too (have attached .txt file)
  • Ran TDSSKiller and followed your instructions for as much as i remember. (Attached both log files)
  • Ran Combo fix (attached the .txt file also)

Hopefully everything is done correctly. Im sure you will be able too see from the logs.Ive attached them, as it seemed like it would be a lot of text to try and copy paste all into 1 post. Easier to keep the posts clean and tidy.

 

Thanks again for all the help, it is appreciated.

What have you done about your anti-virus programs and firewall, I still see all of them running in the logs??

What's staying and what's going?? We have to clean all up that up.

How is the computer if you reboot into safe mode with networking???

Let me know.....MrC

Hi there MrC and thanks again for the help. I forgot to uninstall the extra programs but i have done so now. I have uninstalled Adaware and Norton. I got rid of both because Norton had ran out of subscription and was thinking of getting something a little better like AVG which i was also going to ask you for some recommendations on a good free Antivirus program. As for Safemode with Networking, i have not yet tried it. What would you like me to check in there exactly?

Safe mode with networking:

I want you to see if all the problems go away when in safe mode.

Please do this also:

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) and save it to a folder.
(use correct version for your system.....Which system am I using?)
FRST <----for 32 bit systems
FRST64 <----for 64 bit systems

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

If the logs are large, you can attach them:

Ok. So i have gone through everything you asked me too do.

 

The only thing i was unable to sort out was the Conduit search engine within Chrome. What ever i try too do will not change it. I have tried deleting the address and editing it, i have also tried to make a new search engine with just google and from what i was reading from the address you linked me it is supposed to show itself in the drop down menu which it is not. So i gave up on trying to get around that as maybe you know what is wrong there ?

 

I have done everything else though and am including the logs from each program in this reply.

 

Thanks again

Yes everything is running fine now MrC. The only problem i have left to get sorted is that problem with Chrome. Are all the logs looking cleaner now after the last lot of logs i posted ? Also which Virus protection would you recommend as a free option ? As i have gotten rid of both Ad-Aware and Norton when doing that clean up. Thanks again.

Lets check your computers security before you go and we have a little cleanup to do also:

Download Security Check by screen317 from HERE or HERE.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • If you get Unsupported operating system. Aborting now, just reboot and try again.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
  • Please Post the contents of that document.
  • Do Not Attach It!!!

For your anti-virus I would recommend AVAST, you'll find the links in My Preventive Maintenance below along with much more info.

Make sure you disable Windows Defender when you install it:
How to Disable Defender

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Out dated programs on the system are vulnerable to malware.
Please update or uninstall them:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Adobe Flash Player 11.9.900.152 Flash Player out of Date!
Flash Player:
Check for an update if available
Downloads are at the top of the page.

------------------------

Mozilla Firefox 24.0 Firefox out of Date! <----please check for an update if available.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little clean up to do....

Please Uninstall ComboFix: (if you used it)

Press the Windows logo key + R to bring up the "run box"

Copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

cf2.jpg

Then hit enter. (it may look like CF is re-installing but it's not)
This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and clears System Restore cache and create new Restore point

(If that doesn't work.....you can simply rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe and double click it to complete the uninstall or download and run the uninstaller)

---------------------------------

Please download OTC to your desktop. (This will clean up most of the tools and logs)
http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTC.exe

Double-click OTC to run it. (Vista and up users, please right click on OTC and select "Run as an Administrator")
Click on the CleanUp! button and follow the prompts.
(If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTC attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.)
You will be asked to reboot the machine to finish the Cleanup process, choose Yes.
After the reboot all the tools we used should be gone.
Note: Some more recently created tools may not yet be removed by OTC. Feel free to manually delete any tools it leaves behind.

Any other programs or logs you can manually delete. (right click.....Delete)
IE: RogueKiller.exe, RKreport.txt, RK_Quarantine folder, C:\FRST folder, FRST-OlderVersion folder, MBAR folder, etc....AdwCleaner > just run the program and click uninstall.

Note:
If you used FRST and can't delete the quarantine folder:
Download the fixlist.txt to the same folder as FRST.exe.
Run FRST.exe and click Fix only once and wait
That will delete the quarantine folder created by FRST.
The rest you can manually delete.
