Hello,

I can't see anything suspicious in your log.
Can you tell me what EXACT problem you are having? I see you mentioning something about system restore and installed programs.. but this is somewhat unclear for me.
Do you get any error when opening add/remove programs? Does system restore display a blank page?

When I try to go to System Restore, the computer freezes. I ALWAYS have to reboot. The icon for it also is "blank"; as if it's not installed. Is there a .dll or the .exe file missing? I attempted to run chkdsk in the Command Prompt, but it says the (C:\) drive is in use and will run next when the computer is restarted.

When opening add/remove programs under Control Panel the PC just hangs (for several minutes) and the installed programs never display. This happens in administrator mode and all other account types.

When a user first logs in through the welcome screen it takes up to 10 minutes for their profile to load. During this time, the desktop is displayed but the user cannot choose any programs or icons from the desktop or systray. There is also a spike in networking traffic from that tab/screen in Task Manager, and the CPU usage is 100%. There are times when a user also selects an application and there is no response for up to 5 minutes. Once the user has been on the PC for a while the "issue" seems to improve.

I am absolutely confounded. Could it be the hard drive? Would it be easier to just purchase a new computer?

Please help!

Hi,

I can't see anything suspicious in your log though.
Since when did this issue start?

This could be indeed a hardware issue, but can be caused by software as well.
But first we have to make sure that nothing malware related is present.

The freezing system restore and add/remove programs may be caused by some dlls not registered properly as well, or some dlls missing.

Do next first..

Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

sfc /scannow

This will check for missing or corrupted files and will ask for your cd to restore them.

then, copy and paste next commands one by one in the field in run > start and hit enter.

regsvr32 %Windir%\System32\Mshtml.dll

regsvr32 %Windir%\System32\Jscript.dll

regsvr32 %Windir%\System32\Msi.dll

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\webvw.dll

regsvr32 %Windir%\System32\Mshtmled.dll

You should get a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded" afterwards after copying and pasting every line and clicking enter.

Then,

Open notepad and copy and paste next present in the quotebox below in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.htc]
"Content Type"="text/x-component"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.hta]
@="htafile"
"Content Type"="application/hta"

Save this as fix.reg Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.
(In case you are unsure how to create a reg file, take a look here with screenshots.)

Reboot. Important!

To check for malware..

Download and Save blacklight to your desktop.
F-Secure Blacklight: https://europe.f-sec...light/try.shtml
Double-click blbeta.exe then accept the agreement.
click > scan then > next,
You'll see a list of all items found - if found, so don't worry it tells that there were no files found.
In case hidden files were found, Don't choose for rename yet! I want to see the log first, because legit items can also be present there...
There must be also a log on your desktop with the name fsbl.xxxxxxx.log (the xxxxxxx stand for numbers)
I need that log later.

Then, * Download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop:
ftp://ftp.drweb.com/pub/drweb/cureit/drweb-cureit.exe
  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan"-tab, remove the mark at "Heuristic analysis".
  • Back at the main window, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found: Posted Image
  • If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    Posted Image
    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
  • After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv. I need that log later.
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
* Download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot, it should open a log, combofix.txt.
Post this log in your next reply together with the blacklight log and drWeb CureIt log.

As a sidenote - the fact you are mentioning that windows starts up very slowly, but once loaded, everything is ok again and you can open the programs again. This *may be caused by Norton as well though, because Norton can still cause a huge boot delay and you can only open programs when Norton is properly started.
Actually, Norton can be the cause of many problems with your computer - an incompatibility issue with other software installed.

To find out, I also want you to restart your computer in safe mode and look if you are having the same problems there (including the crashing system restore and add/remove programs)
The reason why safe mode is needed to test is because Norton isn't active in safe mode.

Extra note.. I see you are logged in with several users at the same time as well. Please only log in under one user and see if the problems are still the same when only one useraccount is active.

Hi david.sorenson,

I just did some google searches to find similar issues and in 90% of the cases where users were having the same issues was indeed caused by Norton, including the System restore freezings, add/remove programs freezing and the delayed startup.

That's why, I want you to temporary uninstall Norton. That's the way to figure out if it's indeed Norton causing this or not.
You can always reinstall it afterwards again if norton is not the cause here.

To fully remove Norton AntiVirus, you should go here and download the files and print the instructions for removal, and follow them:
How to uninstall Norton AntiVirus 2004/2005/2006 (note: this removes ALL Norton 2004/2005/2006 products from your computer, and also uninstalls Norton Ghost 10.0/9.0/2003)
How to uninstall Norton AntiVirus 2003 or Norton AntiVirus 2003 Professional Edition
How to uninstall Norton AntiVirus 2000/2001/2002

Also read this article in case you're having problems with uninstalling Norton if above instructions didn't work, or noticed problems after uninstalling Norton:
http://basconotw.mvps.org/SymRem.htm

Reboot afterwards!! Really important!!

After reboot, install a free Antivirus and Firewall instead (so you'll be still protected).
A good free Antivirus is Avira and a good free Firewall is Kerio. Look in my signature under Antivirus and Firewalls for their downloadlocations or other free alternatives.

Notes:

1.) System Restore and add/remove programs still behaved the same in Safe Mode.

Hi,

Don't worry about the error messages, I got those as well when reregistering those files.

I can't see anything suspicious in the logs though, and as I already said, this isn't a malware related issue, but something that got corrupted in Windows.

I see you installed or updated Symantec/Norton recently as well.. and as I already said in my previous post, Symantec may be the cause.

So, uninstall Norton/symantec, REBOOT afterwards and look if that solved the problem. In case when it didn't, then I suggest you perform a Windows repair install. http://www.michaelst...pairinstall.htm

A Repair Install will replace the system files with the files on the XP CD used for the Repair Install. It will leave your applications and settings intact, but Windows updates will need to be reapplied.

Extra addition.

In case you decide to perform a Windows repair install, make sure you uninstall your Internet Explorer 7 first via software > add/remove programs and reboot afterwards. Then perform the Windows repair install.

Forgot the fact that you're not able to use add/remove programs to uninstall. So in this case, to uninstall Internet Explorer 7, go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field and hit enter:

"C:\WINDOWS\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe"

To uninstall Norton, open your Hijackthis > config > misc tools and select the "Open Uninstall Manager" there.
You'll find in the list the Norton/symantec related entries. Don't click to delete!!!! , but select the entry and look in the right pane where it says: Uninstall command. There it will display the right uninstall command for each entry you select.

So in this case, select the Norton related entries, and copy what's present in the "Uninstall command"-field and go to start > run and paste the uninstall command there.

miekiemoes:

Just wanted to thank you for your help. The System Restore and add/remove programs under Control panel are still causing freezing and hanging respectively. I am going to perform the XP re-install this weekend and will let you know how it all goes.

Don't close out this topic/thread until you hear from me again.

:whistling:

Regards,

David

Hi,

Did you uninstall your Norton now?
The fact that it affects both system restore and Add/remove programs to freeze still makes me think that this is an issue with Mshtml.dll/jscript.dll
However, more dlls can be affected ofcourse.
Before the repair install, Can you try next as well?

* Download Dial-a-fix from here:
http://wiki.djlizard...tandard_version

Open dial-a-fix and select under the "Registration Center" part, select everything there and then click the "Go" button below.

Then reboot.

If that didn't solve the problem, do the repair install. But don't forget to uninstall IE7 before doing the repair install! This is really important!

However, If you can still remember since when this issue started, that could give us a clue where to look.

Norton has been unistalled. That did improve response time, but the issues with System Restore and add/remove programs still exist. I know that the system started slowing down when I was "forced" to upgrade to XP SP2 on October 18, 2006.

The other issue was an upgrade to Norton in early December (on or about the 10th).

I will try the dial-a-fix and keep you posted.
