that didn't seem to go anywhere. i booted with the cd, there was no combo fix program included. i booted george.exe with command prompt. it did not find a recovery console, there was another window about boot partitions which it didn't like. the scanning window came up, but then nothing was going on with the hard drive. it didn't even start scanning like the other times. some one else on this site suggested changing the combofix file name before downloading. i don't know if this would make any difference, but as long as this program won't run i'm a bit skeptical that the computer is safe.

When you first boot Hiren's before you go into the miniXP there is an option for an antivirus program. I forget which one Avira maybe that should run on its own. You might try it.

actually there isn't any av software options that i recognized as such in the boot menu. i did find the software in the xp mini installation. there's a "tools" icon on the desktop and right toolbar. i right clicked the tool bar icon and got a whole bunch of software options including combofix, malwarebytes and avira. i tried combofix and malwarebytes and got the message, "this program does not run on mini xp, please use your installed operating system." i did run avira and the scan was clean. log to follow.

i'd be happier if i could actually get combofix to run, but maybe it's not necessary. looks like a good tool though (when it runs).

I'll ask in our internal forum if anyone has a clue why CF won't run for us.

Got a new way of running Combofix from one of the CF gurus.

Pause your antivirus,
close all programs including your browser and copy the next line:


"C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\george.exe" /nombr

Start, All Programs, Accessories, click on Command Prompt. Right click and Paste or Edit then Paste and the copied line should appear. Hit Enter.

That worked. It does look like it got rid of stuff the first run of george created. It didn't find any malware. The guru said it was having problems reading the mbr for some reason so let's run mbrcheck just to make sure there is nothing funny there.

Download

http://ad13.geekstogo.com/MBRCheck.exe

Save it and run it. It will produce a log MBRCheck(date).txt on your desktop. Copy and paste it into a reply. Close the program.

i've noticed recently that the boot time has improved. the windows start screen is only a few seconds now and the loading personal settings is about 30 seconds. the desktop takes another minute or so to become functional. i'm not sure why that is other than the error check we ran. i did run a few error checks previously to try to fix this. the battery is still installed.

here's the mbr scan

MBR check seems to think the MBR is good so I'm not sure why Combofix was having problems with it.

It sounds to me like it is running fairly normally now. We still have some things turned off in MSCONFIG. You can turn them on and see if it slows again.

looking at process explorer HI's are spiking to 2.95 and DPC's to 1.99.

i tried to run windows performance analyzer again, but i'm hung on 'xperf' is not a recognized command. from what i've read below this tool has limited functionality on XP2(don't know about XP3 pro).

http://msdn.microsof...7(v=vs.85).aspx

btw does all of this scanning mean that i'm free of malware, viruses, etc.?

so dpc is still telling me some device drivers behave bad. i haven't enabled the services yet. i made an attempt to reinstall microsoft windows performance toolkit by using a redistributable install on win7, but that hasn't seemed to work either. it doesn't seem to load the xperf.exe file for one. i'm at a bit of a loss for how to proceed here.

Don't think there is any malware left. Just bad drivers. We are getting into unfamiliar waters for me too. I normally just do malware.

OK. so i guess that means it's not a malware problem. well what do you suggest we do? should i start a new post in the xp forum, have this one transferred or did you want to try to work further with me on this.

i did finally get the windows performance tools kit to run. i copied the file from win 7 onto my xp, created a PATH in the environment variables to run it through command prompt and read the .etl file on my win 7 machine. unfortunately the stackwalk feature does not run on xp.

in the DPC CPU usage:

the main culprit is NDIS.sys with a count of 15,090 and inside that ndisMDpc using 14,455

next is ntoskrnl.exe with a count of 5,485

next is USBPORT.SYS at 679

in the Interrupt:

NDIS.sys 29,226
sdbus.sys 14,613
pcmcia.sys 14,613
USBPORT.SYS 14,929
VIDEOPRT.SYS 14,613
portcls.sys 14,613

i can send the logs in a zipped .etl file if you like.

NDIS.sys has something to do with networking so I would get the latest network driver for your PC and see if that helps.

i found some similar info seaching around. as you may have noticed my computer skills are somewhat rudimentary, so when you ask me to get the latest network driver i'm not sure what you are asking. i went onto the toshiba web site and there are a number of drivers for LAN utility wi-fi, driver wi-fi, utility wi-fi, LAN driver wi-fi, LAN wi-fi, LAN driver, and another LAN driver wi-fi.
