Hmm interesting thing I see in your Autoruns

+ "WMPNSCFG" "" "" "File not found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\WMPNSCFG.exe"

+ "EzPrint" "" "" "File not found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Lexmark 7100 Series\ezprint.exe"

+ "rdpclip" "" "" "File not found: rdpclip"


Also I see this
+ "uTorrent" "µTorrent" "BitTorrent, Inc." "c:\program files (x86)\utorrent\utorrent.exe"


Redo the steps for autoruns and locate the 3 entries and get rid of them. The Bit Torrent makes me wonder now if we are dealing with a infection along with the shudowns.

OK now that looks better. We can now move on to phase 2 of the autoruns.... :D

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:


+ "DivXUpdate" "DivX Update"
+ "uTorrent"


When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged

I have no idea really...
speedfan is a handy program but doesn't really help my situation...
even when my computer or fan is running way too high speedfan is not really telling me anything relevant, just temps that don't seem right.
ya know?

ok that is what I want to see is the temps. :D
The other possibility is the fan bearings may be going out if the noise is clunking. If the issue is it speeds up then in a laptop that is normal because of the compactness of a laptop.

OK if that temp 1 is the cpu then it looks to me like the problem is the fan isn't running correctly and what you may be hearing is it whirring because it is locked up.

As far as the password issue

Only option is to press the router reset, go back to day one, and start over.
