We have 12 workstations on our network. Up until six months ago, we all shut our systems down every night. Never had any problems. Then four of us began to log in to our workstations from our homes. We would leave our systems hosted through PC Anywhere and log in from home to work. No problems until last month. Now anytime we leave our systems on all night, we either lose network connectivity or our systems work real slow. Then we re-boot and whatever problems occur go away. This occurs on 9 of the 12 workstations. There are 3 that are not having problems. The problem is that 2 of the people with the problems are the ones that work from their homes. Because of the problem they cannot wake up at 5:30 am and work on their systems because they cannot access the programs on the network server. There is no one in the office to re-boot, log in and rehost their systems. Any ideas or thoughts on what is the most likely cause. It seems to be the problems occur as the time the person is logged in increases. Please help. I am the IT person plus the bookkeeper. The people with the problems are the most productive in our office. If they get behind, we are all in trouble. Thanks in advance for any help!

have you checked for possible infections (malware, trojan, virus)? Given it is the machines that are connected to home machines, which are often infected, the infection could be traveling that way.

Of, whatever is on them might have simply entered through an open port, since PCANYWHERE needs to have open ports and listening

Memory leak in PcAnywhere, perhaps? Did you upgrade, patch PCANYWHERE?

We log in using IP Addresses, I went through the steps to be certain my system was clean. We us Virusscan ASAP, could a virus keep traveling back and forth through the network? This morning when the system was running slow, I did the HiJack this log, before I re-booted. Here it is.

took the liberty of editing out some info that the public doesn't need to see....


MSConfig.exe /auto--second time I've seen this in the past couple minutes....what are you doing on this machine by way of selective startup at the moment?

Hard to guess what is going on when you look like you are in the middle of troubleshooting

I see mcafee software running...any updates to this software occur at about the time of the problem...there was a bad mcafee update about a month ago, it seems...cannot recall exact date.

incredimail---incredibly annoying and a system resource waster, but people sure love it.

How long has ewido been on here?

I see remote desktop....xp pro?

All updates?

Also, if you could

start > run

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs...list them here. (the ones that occur about the time of the trouble)
