Hello all, this will be my first post here so go easy on me.lol
I'm having a problem with several functions in WinXP.
First and foremost, my search function won't operate. I can get into it and type in what I'm looking for in the "all files & folders" field but when I click on "search" after a few seconds (I have task mgr up to see how long it takes) in the task manager 2 separate applications show up and both of them say "not responding". I have to click end program on one, and they both go away. I tried a system restore, but naturally I didn't know enough when I got the computer to know I needed to set up regular restore points so it didn't work. I've tried everything from cleaning out my registry with Regcleaner to running spybot S&D and Adaware 6.0 to disabling some of the junk that's running in the background with msconfig. I'm kinda at my wits end here, so any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Another problem I've had for a while is that when I click on "restart", the computer tries to shut down and gets all the way to the "saving your settings" screen and then locks up. The only way for me to get it to restart is to turn it off at the power switch and then turn it back on. This is annoying but I can live with it if it's not potentially dangerous to my computer with all the turning it on and off. Thanks in advance for any help.

Looking at some of this and I think I recognize what might be some spyware, so I'll run Spybot or Adaware. I run them both weekly, but not at the same times. Thanks

Get the lspfix application from this site:

http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Run it and check the box "I know what I am doing".

Then move all the ua_lsp.dll into the "Remove" window and select "Finish"

Next Run HijackThis and check this entry and "fix" it:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinSetup] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ati2dvag.exe

It does not appear to be a legitimate ATI file. You will need to reboot to delete it. Before you do, right click on it and select Properties > Version to verify it does not have an ATI copyright. If it doesn't, send it to the recycle bin. It is in the c:\windows\system32 folder. Don't confuse it with your other ATI* files there.

>> Next I would suggest you check and "fix" this entry in HijackThis OR run msconfig and uncheck it under the Startup group tab:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sr1exe] "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Dell\Alert\252\updtSup3.exe"

>> it appears legit but shouldn't normally be starting unless you have enabled some oddball Dell function. I have a Dell as well and don't have any of their stuff starting up.

Finally you can check and fix this, it is legit but has no value; it appears after some types of system errors and is of use only to developers:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KernelFaultCheck] %systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k

And you might want to explain what happened when you ran System Restore. It is not necessary to configure anything initially for it to automatically create restore points, usually one a day.

Post another scanlog when ready.

By the way the "lsp" dll is apparently installed by a game called "xfire" to access their servers. Frankly I would not keep anything that alters the winsock protocol in that way. I would suggest uninstalling it from Add/remove programs.

Ok, thanks for the info. I won't be able to do any of this until tomorrow but I'll make sure to post another scanlog and what exactly (in my oh-so computer illiterate words) I did to restore. It's late here and I need to go to bed now.
And BTW, the program "xfire" isn't a game. It's a program kind of like AIM that you can use for gaming and such. You can create a buddy list and it shows you what servers your buddies are in so you can join in a game with them. It's also got a chat and messenger function. It's really a pretty cool little free program for gamers. At any rate, I'll let you know how these things help. Thanks again!
