Computer freezes/slow-downs (especially during spyware/virus scans)

Hey, guys

Every so often, my logitech wireless mouse freezes up followed by my computer slowing down and my Beyond TV agent (similar to TIVO) messing up recordings.

I went through the usual geekstogo.com steps, but it was difficult because these freezes/slow-downs often occur during virus and spyware scans. For some reason, my ad-aware scan does not even seem to finish properly, but, in general, nothing seems to have been found through any of my other spyware scans.

My usual response is just to re-start my computer, and that makes everything fine for a while (until the problem pops back up again--sometimes soon, sometimes in a few days).

Thanks for any help you can provide! My computer is a lap-top that I plug into a device that connects to a monitor, printer, wireless mouse and keyboard, etc.

Here is my hijacklog:

Then reboot and re-enable SpywareGuard and MSAS

Let us know if that's better.

Thank you very much for responding. :-)

I followed all your steps, but the problem popped back up again during a Spyware scan. One thing I didn't mention is that CPU usage shoots up to 100% when the problem occurs. Do you think this is malware or a problem for a different forum? I wasn't sure, but I knew that I had had problems with malware in the past (Winfixer, etc.) that you guys helped with...

Anyway, let me know as it gets annoying having to re-start my computer so often (especially when it interferes with my recordings). 0_0

Can you post a new HijackThis log?

And let me know if you have some kind of codecs installed?
XP has problems with lots of third-party codecs.

Hey, again :-)

How would I check the kinds of codecs installed? [I had to look that word up--tech. savy creature that I am. My Beyond TV video recordings use MPEG 2 (during recording it creates an MPEG 2 file, a DAT file, and an XML document...not sure about anything else on my computer...)] [Edit #1: I also have a DivX player installed, but I don't really use it. It was just installed so that I could play video files that my dad uses (he records Beyond TV recordings and then makes the files smaller using DivX).] [Edit #2: I just opened the DivX player and pressed "open" and it gives me the option to search for ".avi, .divx, .tix, .mp4, .qt, .mov., and .mpeg" files.]

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

I'll see if I find some codecs listed.
Sorry for the technobabble. :whistling:

Nothing except DivX, which you said you use from time to time, so I'll leave that alone (for a while at least)

Go to Start > Control Panel

Double-Click User Accounts
Choose Create a new Account
Type any name for the account then click Next
Choose Computer Administrator then click Create Account

Log off your current account.

Reboot your computer, then log-in to the new account you just created.
Run one of the scanners that froze up earlier.
Let me know if it works better run from that account.

Regards,

Hey, again :-)

I followed your instructions, but the problem popped back up again.

To clarify: The mouse is what freezes. The scans continue (though much slower) and CPU usage shoots to 100%. I can open up my laptop and manually move the arrow icon around, but I need to re-start my computer to get things running well again. [I almost always let the scans continue until completed (though, it takes a very long time), but they haven't found anything.]

I would be willing to remove DivX if you think it would help.

[Edit: The only spyware scan that didn't (at first) complete was Spybot, but I reinstalled and it was able to finish its process.]

Hi Snaploud,

I think uninstalling DivX is the last thing we can try before we start to blame it on hardware.
Trying from a new useraccount rules out a lot of other possibilities.

Hey, again :-)

I removed DivX, but the problem came back up again during a virus scan.

With the understanding that we have ruled our malware, I will be starting a thread in the Operating Systems/Windows XP, 2000, 2003, NT forum...

Thanks for doing what you can...I will check back into this thread (just in case I am mistaken in that malware has been ruled out).

Best Wishes,

Good luck, :whistling:
