So I got a computer from my brother for my teenager to have for there very own. The problem, besides that I don't know much about computers, is that the computer has several issues. I've lurked around here for the last month or so and I've downloaded spyware and a cleaner that was recommended. My biggest outstanding problems are:

1) When turned on the computer stops at the first or second screen (it says Dell in blue writing) until I double click a button (I use escape), Then it boots the rest of the way up.

2) The monitor does not allways talk to the computer when they're both turned on (the monitor power light just blinks).

3) The computer locks up constantly to where you often have to turn it off and start over. If you use Explorer to go on line and then close that and go to say outlook to check mail without pausing for a minute or so it almost always freezes.

I took the liberty of running a check on Highjackthis as I've seen suggested before. The results follow:

Hijackthis should be in it's own folder on drive c to preserve any backups it makes.
You should stop the the following program running with Task manager -
TSADBOT.EXE
Then run a Hjackthis scan and check the following Items for "fixing"
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = about:blank
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = about:blank

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

Now click on the Hijackthis "Fix Checked" button to remove the items.

That still leaves a lot of programs running for a Windows 98 system that you could probably do without.

mhoffperson,

I noticed that, in addition to other spyware problems, your daughter's computer has TSADBOT.EXE running. This an old spyware/adware program, one of the first of it's kind, from a company that no longer exists I believe. It was probably bundled with software such as older romtech or egames software.

After the knowledgeable folks here at techguy forums help you remove the bad stuff from your daughter's computer, you will probably find that the host software will no longer run, or if it does run it will reinstall the TSADBOT.EXE.

You can obtain a patch from egames that will patch any romtech or egames software so that it will run without the TSADBOT.EXE spyware.

The patch is available here, at the egames support page.

Thanks for all the help but I have a couple more questions. I've done everything recommended but the computer still hangs up when first turning it on. It freezes on the second screen that opens which has a blue globe with DELL writen on it and www.dell.com right below it. I have to hit the Esc key twice to move forward from there. The next problem is the computer still freezes when going from program to program. I was just on internet explorer, I shut that and 20 seconds later tried to check outlook express. The outlook icon highlighted but the computer just sat there with the hour glass. This time it went to the email after about a 1 minute wait but sometimes it takes much longer or doesn't conect at all. Any ideas? Thanks.

Welcome to TSG! :D

I have moved you to security and added a description to your title. I think you can get additional help here.

It was suggested that I run a scan again. I assume it was meant a Hijack this scan so here it is. I have my current problems outlined a couple posts above. Thanks in advance.

Have you run Adaware and spybot to remove any spyware and also deleted all Internet explorer Temporary Internet files and cookies?
How much RAM has the computer got and also how much free Disk space?
You should run another Hijackthis scan and check these for deletion as theywere not removed the first time around.

P.S. Here is my latest HJT scan if that you anything.

Try downloading the free Mozilla Firefox from here -
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
and see if it happens with that.
Stop TSADBOT.EXE from running with Task Manager.
Run another Hijackthis scan and check these for deletion as they have still not been removed.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TimeSink Ad Client] "C:\Program Files\TimeSink\AdGateway\TSADBOT.EXE"

Then use explorer (not internet explorer) to go to
C:\Program Files\TimeSink\AdGateway\

delete the folders Timesink and AdGateway.

Have you tried running a hard drive diagnostic program from the manufacturer's website?
