Any progress...?

Sorry for the slow update, had to be away from the comp all weekend. I'm about halfway down the list of possible programs it could be so far - It's very much looking like it must be one of the ones still blocked, as I haven't seen the pop-up for over a day since stopping them. The slow part is just checking each one- because the damn pop-up doesn't always show up instantly, so I'm having to run the comp for a few hours at least before moving on each time. Hopefully I'll be updating again in a day or two saying I've finally found the bugger! :D

It's a pretty unhelpful update but after reaching the bottom of the list, now with everything turned back on, the annoying block pop-up just seems to have... stopped? My theory at the moment is when you disable things in msconfig, they remain 'stopped' even once you enable them again, until whatever program is run again. So I'm guessing it must be one of the stopped programs that hasn't been reactivated yet - which doesn't really narrow it down for me as there's about 15 or so. 


Either way, touchwood, I guess it's fixed... kind of? :P

Hello Hyena,

Thanks for the update, for now I guess we can clean up....

Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\Stixx\Downloads\FRST.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST to uninstall

That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...
