Been struggling with video and malware problems. Malware seems taken care of, video still horrible.

Anway, cruising through Windows XP, I ran across the below. My malware guru in the other forum said I should ask ya'll.

Does any of this mean anything?...

abiosdsk Abiosdsk Not Available Kernel Driver No Disabled Stopped OK Ignore No No
aticdsdr ATICDSDr \??\c:\docume~1\cheeta\locals~1\temp\aticdsdr.sys Kernel Driver No Manual Stopped OK Normal No No
bcmntio BCMNTIO \??\c:\progra~1\checkit\diagno~1\bcmntio.sys Kernel Driver Yes Auto Running OK Normal No Yes
bvrp_pci bvrp_pci Not Available Kernel Driver No Manual Stopped OK Normal No No
mapmem MAPMEM \??\c:\progra~1\checkit\diagno~1\mapmem.sys Kernel Driver Yes Auto Running OK Normal No Yes
tmcomm tmcomm \??\c:\windows\system32\drivers\tmcomm.sys Kernel Driver Yes Auto Running OK Normal No Yes


Also had these errors...
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7034
Date: 7/31/2009
Time: 7:32:59 AM
User: N/A
Computer: D7XZDG41

Event Type: Error
Event Source: COM+
Event Category: Unknown
Event ID: 4689
Date: 7/31/2009
Time: 7:32:59 AM
User: N/A
Computer: D7XZDG41
Description:
The run-time environment has detected an inconsistency in its internal state. This indicates a potential instability in the process that could be caused by the custom components running in the COM+ application, the components they make use of, or other factors. Error in f:\xpsp3\com\com1x\src\comsvcs\txprop\dtcinfo.cpp(158), hr = 8000ffff: TransactionManager->GetWhereaboutsSize

Interesting since I don't have an "f" drive.

Hello cheeta,

The F drive could be a USB stick, or a CD-Player.
In this case the F-drive had some XP-SP3 files on it. Or so it seems.

Does any of this mean anything?...

Where did you find this exactly? And was there perhaps some information in the top columns? :)

Regards,
Olrik

Hey Artellos,
No stick drive. My dvd player/recorders are in D and E drives.
I don't remember where I found the info. I have been through so many troubleshooting steps.
I think it was a boot initialization record, but not sure how I got there.

Hmm, the above described information doesn't specifically tell me anything about video, though.
You say your video is horrible. What exactly is horrible?!

Olrik

Dealing with the video in another post.
http://www.geekstogo...ms-t246523.html
Stuff like horizontal lines running through desktop icons, an array of squares on the windows startup page, etc.

The problems mentioned about the "f drive?" are not related. At least I don't think they are. Those errors were something I just happened to run across that I thought were odd.

Don't worry about it.
