Hi Tech guys


I am about to commit suicide ! this stinkin box is shutting down randomly. I use these progs to moitor my comp.

highjackthis, adaware, spybot, AVG. xoftspy, system mechanic, each and every one of these progs tells me there is nothing wrong . there are no red flags in any of the system reports and the bios is also running fine.

I cleaned out every dead key and link I could find but this problem will not go away.

this mostly happens when I am online.

another recent problem is I cannot use an msiexe when I do it opens notepad. I went to microsoft to update the msi installer but to no avail.


I have an impulse control disorder whuich means when something goes wrong and I cant fix it I end up obsessing over it until its fixed. This is not a good time for me. With no obvious red flags the fact that my comp shuts off with no warning is driving me mad.
Thanks guys.

Open the case and clean out the system - make sure all the fans are running

look in event viewer for errors

Thanks for replying guys

My case is always open and I dust it out often.

Ok the event viewer is showing many system failures I guess thats the something to do with either the power supply or the motherboard.

also causeing many errors is the msiexe which I have no idea as to why its messed up.

you must not rely entirely on these freeware tools.

however these are very likely the best freeware programs you can find at this time.

except system mechanic which is not freeware.


just because they cannot find it does not mean it is not there.

one tool cannot detect all the malware.



scan your HARD DRIVE with NOD32.

the best ANTIMALWARE tool you can find on the internet.

if it is there it has the highest chance of finding it.

I used the suggested application NOD32 and while it found no threats it does show many files that are locked and blocking access to the prog.


nt authority files are locked and then there are these files which I can find no info about on the net.


fidbox.dll
fidbox.idx
fidbox2.dat
fidbox2.idx

Do you know what they are?

I dont see an option to save a log if you know where it is I will post a log of the complete findings.
