    So, this is an all in one post... I suppose the pc shutting down could have/should have gone in Hardware World, but it may be related to software.

    Anyway, the first issue I have is yesterday I noticed that I started getting an amazing amount of popups with the "IE" icon attached to it. I no longer use IE as my browser, so I am not quite sure why this is happening. The pop ups are just simply titled "Cannot Find Server" and in the window it says the usual "The page cannot be displayed etc..."

    Like I said... I dont use IE any longer so I dont know why this happened. I have used spybot and Adaware and removed whatever they found, but still am getting these popups even when no browser window is open.

    Should I run Hijack this as well? Might that help?

    I also had a problem last night while this was going on... that my pc just restarted itself two times for no apparent reason. Well, it stopped doing that after a couple times. Later on, when I tried to shut down my computer... and I use Windows XP, it just rebooted. I tried to shut down again... and it rebooted again. It did this a number of times, and eventually it just shut down.

    So, in closing UGH!!!!!!

    Yes run hijackthis! and post the log.

    Could also be viruses or trojans so scan for those too (look at security section of the everything guide (link in my sig)).


    As for the restarting...right click my comp>manage>advanced>startup and recovery settings>uncheck "automatically restart...".
    then it will show a blue screen rather than restarting. Write down the error you get on the blue screen then google for it to find a solution and\or post it here.

    I will do the Hijack this thing later... but I have a question about the above...

    if I change my settings as you say, and get a blue screen... which I dread !! ... what do I do from there? Is my computer shut down or on or ?? I dont get it!!

    Also, it didnt happen yet, so I hope it doesnt, but if it does I will do the my computer thing and change that. Will keep you posted on the Hijack This log.

    Oh, by the way, what is oote.exe? I am curious about this one. I cant get anything for it on google.

    For the Blue Screen when you get it write down all info you see, then either hit alt-ctrl-del twice to restart (i think that works) or hit power button on your computer.


    edit: only problem i see in your hijackthis is this:
    O2 - BHO: &EliteBar - {28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81ABC} - C:\WINDOWS\EliteToolBar\EliteToolBar version 53.dll

    It could very well be causing the popups.

    you can use msconfig to remove oote.exe from your startup, then restart and make sure things are working. No clue what it is though.

    I tried deleting oote.exe from my applications folder.. but it wouldnt go... I think obviously because it was running. But, I suppose it is running because I need it. But, you would think if it was needed, then it would return results on google. So, I am still not sure about it.



    So, as for the:

    O2 - BHO: &EliteBar - {28CAEFF3-0F18-4036-B504-51D73BD81ABC} - C:\WINDOWS\EliteToolBar\EliteToolBar version 53.dll

    Do I just select them on HT and then remove them? And, I should be good to go?

    I am also installing Trojan Hunter and its stuck on the checking for a new update thing. Any ideas?

    I can tell you that oote.exe isn't needed for windows to run. Just clock it with task manager and go to msconfig and disable it from starting up. Make sure all of your programs work (I'm sure they will) then i guess it's safe to delete the file...or leave it if you want.

    For trojan hunter...i dunno i cant even run mine, im using TDS-3 for now.

    and yes just cplace a checkmark beside O2 and then click fix at the bottom of HJT.
    Restart after and let me know how it goes.

    Hey there Dopey...

    Well, not quite sure what the "O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Sys29] C:\windows\system32\winvyc32.exe" is...so, not sure about that one, but shall I run the Hijack this and delete this one?

    Also, I didnt get what you mean by the following:

    you may have to show hidden files
    Code:
    http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html
    Thanks

    Cancel the above, I misread it... thought it was something related to my computer and not a site just to show me how to do hidden files. Cheers

    missed some things i guess.

    he meant to do this:
    * Click Start.
    * Open My Computer.
    * Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    * Select the View Tab.
    * Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
    * Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
    * Click Yes to confirm.
    * Click OK.

    so you can view hidden files. Then delete the following files:
    * C:\windows\system32\winvyc32.exe
    * C:\Documents and Settings\Marc G\Application Data\ooto.exe
