Hi nyknicks,

Welcome to Geeks 2 Go. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, we have been extreamly busy.

As it has been some time since you posted your HJT log, could you please rescan your PC and post a new log in this thread.

If your problems have been resolved could you please inform me so that this post can be closed.

Regards,


Usetobe

You also have 3 optional entries that are not required to run and are resource hogs(see below)

O4 - Startup: Microsoft Find Fast.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\FINDFAST.EXE <- Can cause PC to run slow or even freeze for several seconds whilst it is indexing

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA.EXE <- Office Startup Asistant is an optional item that if checked, will eliminate a known resource hog. You will still be able to start Office components from the Start menu.

O4 - Global Startup: QuickBooks Update Agent.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks\QBUpdate\qbupdate.exe <--Intuit’s “QuickBooks Update”. The purpose of this background program is to see if your QuickBooks 2003 software needs updating. It does this by contacting Intuit whenever there is an Internet connection present. We have serious issues with this : if your connection to the Internet is by modem, it slows it a little initially. Worse, if it finds updates it downloads them without asking the user, thereby significantly slowing down the user’s connection without the end‑user knowing why. Next, when the user next opens QuickBooks 2003, he is prompted with a question about updating QuickBooks – many users find this confusing as they did not realise QuickBooks had been downloading updates in the background. Finally, as if the above problems weren’t enough, our experience is that this QuickBooks Update Task contributes to a significant slow-down of the PC.

Recommendation :
While in QuickBooks 2003, choose the “File \ Update QuickBooks” menu option, then click on the Options button, then make sure Automatic Update is set to OFF. Click Save.


Check any of the optionals if you consider to remove them.

Ensure that you have NO windows open other than HJT and select fix checked.

Enable your PC to show hiden files (Link below if you do not know how to do this)

How to show hidden files

Using Windows explorer locate the following Files/Folders if found and delete any that you might find.

C:\Program Files\Media Access
C:\WINDOWS\System32\elite <-with anything after the word elite
C:\wfx32\CTXTP01.EXE


Then, Go to Start > Run and type: [b]cleanmgr
and then click OK. Select c drive and click OK. Make sure the boxes for these are checked:
Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

And Click OK.

Reverse the show hidden files proceedure to hide them again.

Reboot your PC normally, Rescan with HJT and post the log back in this thread.
