There's nothing attached... :blink:

This is what Filemon looks like, and the Magnifying glass is on the left side by the floppies.

Hopefully happyrck is correct, and then we won't need Filemon. But there may be more to it than just conflicting Anti-virus programs. If the problem persists after turning one of them off (I say McAfee), then attach the Filemon log.

If you have any trouble attaching it, you can e-mail it to me at computerwiz12890(at)hotmail(dot)com

Just replace the (at) and (dot) with their respective symbols @ and . This is to avoid spam-bots. :whistling:

I got it this time. :whistling:

At first glance it looks like corruption. I haven't had time to thoroughly investigate it, so it could even be an infection.

Until then, do the following:

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp DiskCleaner. Delete all junk files. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp RegistryCleaner. Fix all errors. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Optimize & Improve. Run TuneUp RegistryDefrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot.

After the reboot, start Tune Up again. Click on Optimize & Improve then click on TuneUp System Optimizer. In the menu to the left called "Wizards", choose System Advisor. Note some of the advice it tells you.


If that doesn't work, do the following:

A number of XP users have reported situations with Internet Explorer 6 becoming corrupted and reporting a number of different errors. While there is certainly no guarantee, the two procedures listed below have restored functionality to IE6 for many users experiencing problems.

Note: Both methods listed require that the Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM be available.

Method 1: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Run.
In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
Select the OK button.
Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

Method 2: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x Repair for Windows XP

From the Start menu, select Search, select All Files and Folders.
Select More Advanced Options and place a checkmark beside Search Hidden Files and Folders option.
Ensure that Search System Folders and Search Subfolders are also checked.
In the All or Part of the File Name box, type ie.inf
In the Look In drop-down menu, select C: or the letter of the hard drive that contains the Windows folder.
Click the Search button.
In the search results pane, find the ie.inf file located in Windows\Inf folder.
Right click the ie.inf file and click Install on the context menu.
Reboot the computer when the file copy process is complete.

Hi!

Did what you said with the tune up. CPU is still working it's toosh off. Slight problem with the second option you had there. Don't have the windows disc :whistling:
No idea where it is and I'm actually pretty sure I never got one when I got the laptop (present from ebay, everything installed).
Any luck with that filmon log?
Thank you so much for all your help :blink:

I'll have to give that filemon log a thorough look once I get off of work :whistling:

Until then, try downloading and installing this:

Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1

If your internet explorer is indeed corrupt, this may repair it. Plus, if you don't already have this patch, it would be wise to install it for extra protection. :blink:

Oooh just tried to download that and it said that "Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on the system. Set-up cannot continue."
I generally don't use Explorer, usually use mozilla firefox and never had a problem..... ?
Gawd I hate being so clueless with this kind of thing! Not to worry. We'll get there! You're such a gem!

Is there a possibility that there's something that kind of hiding/attched itself to the csrss.exe? Because when I look at processed on task manager, that's the one that's going the most mental. Around 70-85% constantly. I know that it's an integral part of a running process for windows but has there been a virus that attches itself to that, masking itself as the csrss.exe?
Or something. I'm grasping at straws aren't I. :whistling:
