OK we will now run a sweep for orphans.. You will have a fair few svchost files running

But before that is this the problem you are having

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediately.

OK after MBAM has run a quick scan then we will look at your services

Download and run farbar service scanner

Tick "All" options.
Press "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.

Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

I ran this, it fixed a whole bunch of stuff and right before I was about to restart that warning window that I mentioned in my first post about the system shutting down in 60 seconds popped up. The computer restarted and I had to RE-REstart it because something messed with my eset setting (turned off my firewall & Parental controls!) After the reset though everything went back to normal. BUT lol there is always a but, my task bar is still randomly changing from Windows XP to Windows classic AND I have no volume now? It keeps telling me I have no active mixer?

AHHHH! :blink:

I ask for you're forgivness in advance lol!

OK lets tackle them one at a time.. First could you re-run FSS so that I can see the state of the services

Then press windows + R key together and type in

devmgmt.msc

Press enter

This will open up device manager
Are there any yellow exclamation marks there ?

For the themes

Download this reg file to your desktop

Double click and allow to merge
This should correct the problem

Hello!

Sorry for the delay! I did what you told me to but nothing.

My updates went through though for Windows! I am still having issues though. Now on my task manager I see randomly rundll32.exe running with me as the user? I dont even know what that is?

Also I realized that usually my tool bars change back to classic style once I get online.

Im not sure what Im doing wrong but Im also still getting the shut down notice as well.

OK lets use a different programme to check that I have not missed anything

Run dll is a generic system tool used by various programmes within the system

Download and Install Combofix

Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2

VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • Accept the disclaimer and allow to update if it asks

    Posted Image

    Posted Image
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
  • Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

Notes:
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.

3. If after the reboot you get errors about programmes being marked for deletion then reboot, that will cure it.


Please make sure you include the combo fix log in your next reply as well as describe how your computer is running now
