Hello Deb in Pittsburgh! Welcome to G2G!

Sorry for the delay in responding, this site gets quite busy!

I do not see any malware in your HJT log....but I do notice that you have 2 Firewalls and 3 AV programs installed and running on your system!

Anti-Virus programs take up an enormous amount of your computer's resources when they are active and operating on your computer. Having two (or three in your case!) anti-virus programs running at the same time can cause your computer to run very slow, become unstable and even, in rare cases, crash. More than one AV program can actually lead to decreased security due to system conflicts!

If you choose to install more than one Anti-Virus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

I would recommend that you find/choose ONE antivirus and ONE firewall to run on your system. Uninstall the second firewall program. For the AV programs, either uninstall the two you are not going to use or at a minimum disable them from running at startup and use them only for system scans when you want to.

Do the above and see if it solves your problems...post back and let me know.

Ah, Pittsburgh.....I did my Cardiac Anesthesia training at Allegheny General about 16 years ago....I was there for two months (Dec-Jan) and it snowed EVERY DAY. I didn't see the sun once... :whistling:

Thanks for the reply, but since I posted that I have done the following..
- performed memory tests that found a bad 1GB DDR400 PC3200 memory bar - removed
- Replaced power supply to 500w
- performed Hard drive diagnostics and found no errors on surface scan
- reformatted my hard drive and did a completely new install of winxp pro
- updated windows xp
-updated all of my motherboard drivers
-updated my sound drivers (using on board sound at the moment - found that my sound card was outdated and might have been a conflict..couldnt update the driver to an XP version)
-found the most recent updated driver for my new video card
- checked the fan on the video card to see tht it is working and not overheating the GPU
- replaced the processor (had an extra one that had never been used- Intel P4 2.8)
- replaced the CMOS battery just in case
- reinstalled my malware and virus program.

Keep in mind, that I did these things one at a time....using the computer to see if I had fixed the problem only to find that it froze up again. The only thing I have not replaced is the motherbard.

It is still freezing and Im at my wit's end.

Below is a new HJT after all of the updates and changes Ive made. I havent even installed the printer or other programs because at this point, Im still locking up.

As for Pittsburgh...Ive only been here for 5 years. I work for the UPMC health system as an EMS Educator. I have not experienced a winter here like you described, but prior to moving here, I lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota ....so Im no stranger to winters :-)

Thanks for your reply and hopefully future help.

Hello Deb...

I don't see any malware in that new HJT log either. We can do some scans if you llike to see if they find anything, but I'm not sure it would help much. I'll post instructions below if you want to try this approach.

I do not see any AV program active in your log now....unless a-squared is now more than an anti-malware program.

If you want to do the below scans, that would be fine...post the results back here and we can review them. But I'm getting the feeling that the problem isn't malware etc...it may be something else.

G2G has other great Hardware and Software forums with experts there too...while I know a lot about malware and security, I'm no wiz in these other areas...perhaps you could check these other forums out. What are you doing on the computer when it freezes?

1. First download ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.
This is a 30 day trial of the program
  • Once you have downloaded ewido anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  • Once the setup is complete you will need run ewido and update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
    • Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
    • Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close ewido anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.
  • Reboot your computer into SafeMode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit enter.
    IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while ewido is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess:
  • Lauch ewido-anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
  • Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
  • ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
  • Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
  • Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
  • Close ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode and post the results of the ewido report scan.
2. Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
3. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report and the Ewido Scan and we can look at them...if you want that is!
