Hi again,

I think I may have gotten rid of what was ailing my computer by running Spybot and Ad-aware, but I want to make sure. Computer was running slow (seems better now). In addition, I would occasionally get an auditory pop-up that didn't seem connected with whatever site I was on at the time. All of a sudden the computer would offer, "Type what you want me to say!" No, I am not having auditory hallucinations, but I would like a checkup.

Can you please check my HT log and make sure it's okay?

Also, I saw in a post below someone else having trouble because they kept getting a message that the printer ink had run out. I get the same message, even though I have refilled all ink cartridges. I can still print, but the copier function won't work as a result. Maybe my printer/copier doesn't like the inexpensive refills (I bought those ones with ink and a syringe), but it's annoying, because the ink cartridges are clearly full.

In the post below, the person was told to do something with the Gateway InkMonitor entry on his or her HT log. However, I don't think my log has such an entry. Is there any way I can bypass the ink monitor function on my machine? I don't see any way to control it on the printer's (Xerox WorkCentre) program. When I do a search for files containing the words Ink monitor on my Gateway computer, I get NS0, NS1, NS2, NS3, DAT, and RSC files (I don't know what that means at all). I don't see any file called GWInkMonitor.exe, which is what the person below was told to find. Even if I could find such a file, I wouldn't know what to do with it. Can you help, using very simple English?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Okay, that's better. There's really not much of anything pest-wise. You can fix these two entries.

Close your browser and check the following entries in HJT. Click Fix and then REBOOT.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank


Rather than using HJT to fix your ink monitoring problem, just disable it from running on startup.

O4 - Startup: Pagis Schedule Monitor.lnk = C:\Program Files\Xerox\ControlCentre 2.0\Pagis\Monitor.exe


Go to Start > Run > MSCONFIG > Startup tab > then find that entry in the list and uncheck it. You'll need to reboot for the change to take effect.
