4. intermittent .... and i do mean intermittent..... clicking upon rebooting

5. mouse goes spastic ..

6. multiple instances of programs open and continue opening or windows flash ( like ms message OS windows asking you what you want to do, close app, etc.) ... when this occurs and i attempt to reboot .. popup from tray for start .. reboot .. does not pop up but pc does a " restart" when i try to access shut down on start panel

7. in chat programs.. ( messenger, icq, yahoo, halsoft) all of a sudden all my typing goes "vertical" .... may be 3 hours or 3 minutes before this occurs after a fresh reboot .. shutdown... not restart ....

you may need to re-install Windows.

First backup all your sensitive data:

Backup all your Sensitive Data (Internet Explorer Favorites; Netscape Bookmarks, Address Book and Netscape Mail Folders; Outlook Express Address Books and Folders (compress any Netscape Mail or Outlook Express folders first) letters, pictures, databases, spreadsheets, music, etc.) to removable media for restoring later.

Please the printable attachment for more information.

Looking at the O5 and O18 entries, did YOU make these changes and/or are you aware of them?

Let's not get excited about re-installing Windows......yet.

Sorry for the delay, I was out for a few hours.

Since O18 entries are very rare, and HJT creates back-ups, I'm going to suggest that we have HJT fix them. Let's try the O18's first and then the O5's if that doesn't help. It looks like the O5's are disable your sound. Not sure why???

In Hijack This, check ALL of the following items. Double check so as to be sure not to miss a single one.
Next, close all browser Windows, and have HT fix all checked.

Reboot


Now download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

Reboot

Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

Thanks

ty so much for your time and effort :) particularly since i view reformat as a four letter word!!!

I downloaded, installed, configured and ran the latest versions of adaware and spybot prior to your post and have run both .... cleaning many registry entries I had missed in my search and destroy mission.

I will follow your protocol above and report back with a new hijack log. That will clear the 018 issues hopefully.

As for the 005 entries .....??????? and yes my sound is impacted but was the least of my worries :) :eek:

Log file attached....

when i ran hijack the first time this evening, there were also no 005 or 018 entries .. and as you can see there are none now. The only log entry I question now is:

O16 - DPF: {0246ECA8-996F-11D1-BE2F-00A0C9037DFE} (TDServer Control) - http://www.truedoc.com/activex/tdserver.cab

AND........I cannot get into my webmail acct at Excite since installing and runnin Spybot. I told Spybot to ignore... and is checked as excluded... but i still cannot sign in. I reset activex to ask permission and enabled java much as i did not want to, it let me in once , but not a second time after rebooting.

On another note: ..... as i said in first post, I uninstalled ms java and installed sun java per a post here ... followed instructions to " T" ....... however, some web pages with graphics and anfy java do not display at all ? Is there a corruption in the Sun program i downloaded or? As I understood it, it should not matter with the Sun Java.

On the Java issue and not being able to login to certain sites. Part of that issue may be Zone Alarm (ZA) related. Be sure ZA is not set to restrict certain sites. There is no difference. Java is all by Sun. If you have incorrectly uninstalled it reverse that uninstall. In Control Panel open the Java control panel; re-enable Internet Explorer by re-ticking the option. You mightttry using the latest Netscape browser from http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp

***

Ensure your Internet Explorer browser is properly configured, not too strictly:

Open Internet Explorer (IE); Tools menu; Internet Options; Advanced tab; Click the Restore Defaults button; Click Apply; Click Ok. Close IE.

Open (IE); Click the Tools menu; Point to Internet Options; Click the Security tab; Click the Default Level button; Click Apply; Click Ok. Close IE.

Open IE; Click the Tools menu; Internet Options; Click the Security tab; Click the Custom Level button; Click Apply; Click Ok. Close IE. Start IE as desired.
