My Windows Xp Computer seems infected

Hi,

 

My computer has been often seeming to have a series of spells where it seems to freeze up or become inactive when I click on certain websites.

 

I suspect that I have a virus or some form of spyware that is logging or monitoring my online  activity.

 

I am using an Old Windows Inspiron 1501 Laptop Computer on Windows XP operating system..series 2 from 2002.

 

In the past I used to try various antivirus software programs.. that used to seem to work for me and remove various spyware and viruses..

 

but in more recent times... the Antivirus programs no longer seem to work on Windows XP...

 

so I have NOT as yet attempted to try and use any Antivirus.

 

I dont think I have any really valid protection on my computer like I once used to have..

 

and overall in general I think overall I am much more careful in what websites I visit and for quite a few years now.. I have avoided any real problems..

even without any protection or AV programs installed.

 

But Unfortunately in the last 2 to 3 months... I have found my computer running poorly and sometimes it does freeze up badly.

and becomes unusable.

 

I would appreciate any help and advice to try to solve the problem.

 

Thank you

 

Regards

 

Dowsp

I dont know why,

 

but when I initially tried to post the FRST and Addition Notepad txts...

 

After attempting to select, copy and then paste..

 

When I tried to paste the content into the editor... it would not show the Paste option..

 

and all it showed on a right click was a inpect element option.

 

Later for some reason it eventually allowed me to paste..

 

 

I tried to paste it 3 times and now I can see all 3 attempts have now shown..

 

Is it possible for me to delete two of these ?

 

alternatively I will have to remove the content out of two of the posts...

 

I later ammended two posts and added in the 2nd Addition Notepad to use up one of the 2 extra  posts that  I had made ...

 

I can also now see there is a note showing up related to the FRST program maybe being outdated..

 

 

(ATTENTION: ====> FRSTversion is 79 days old and could

be outdated

Windows XP has not been supported since 8th April 2014.

 

XP cannot be secured against infection, if you go online with it, you are going to get infected, over, and over, and over again. It is an exercise in futility removing an infection from a machine that cannot be secured. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but it's the truth, and few helpers will be willing to waste their time in cleaning up an XP machine.

 

XP is obsolete, and increasingly you will not be able to find programs, apps, and drivers for it.

 

You need to update to an OS that is supported. With a machine that's old enough to be running XP, it is unlikely that your hardware will support Windows 10, however there are a number of Linux distros that are still able to run on old hardware, and I suggest you try out one of those.

What you say may well be correct,

However overall.... when I have still used Windows XP... I have not really had that many issues in how my computer has operated that were noticable to me.

 

Generally It worked Ok for me for the basic use that I have used it for...

and most websites that I tend to visit .have not appeared to cause me any obvious problems.

 

It does unfortunately seem that there no longer appears to be any easy Antivirus program that one can use to remove any spyware or viruses anymore.

In the past when I have had some problems and used Geekstogo...

They have offered certain programs that have seemed to aid to remove any problems that I have had in the past..

However some of those past programs seemed to have since been replaced by other newer or alternative prorgams...that I am not familiar with.

 

But the programs used in the past often did seem to remove the problem and make the computer run much better , even if the process was not fully completed.

IF there are still some recommended programs suggested...

 

At the very least I think that they would be well worth my trying if someone could recommend one that I could at least try to see if it make a difference..

even if they do not want to go thru the whole process...

 

At one time I think some of the programs were listed or there were obvious links to them...with instructions...

but Im not sure if they are shown available any more.

 

Im not sure if other similar threads may refer to some worth trying..

The fact that you didn't appear to be having problems is somewhat irrelevant, as many infections can lie "quiet" on your machine, so you may be infected without you knowing it, and being used as a means to spread infection to others.

 

Your data is also a valuable resource, especially if you were foolish enough to undertake any kind of financial transactions using your XP machine, and that includes making online purchases using it.  Also your free disk space is a valuable commodity, which can be used for a number of different illicit purposes, including hosting porn, hosting spam, hosting infection spreading software.

 

None of the above would  necessarily be observable by you.

 

Unless you are able to patch your system, which with an unsupported OS you are not, then any exploits on your machine, will remain permanently exploitable, so even if you detect and clean your current infection, there is nothing whatsoever to prevent the same exploit being used against you again. Doesn't matter what AV you have installed, or what Firewall you use, as it is not the purpose of either to patch vulnerabilities.

 

I know this is not what you want to hear, but I cannot put it any clearer ...... XP is not fit for going online with ..... period.

Can you explain a bit more how this could occur

 

Is this a case that if someone either had placed something on a website or who sent me an email that I may have opened... that they then obtain a ref to my ISP..that somehow allows them

to access my computer and install some sort of hosting on my machines remaining data space.

 

After Windows XP...

 

how would other Op sytems compare..

 

I do not have money to update to a new system at the moment...

 

Ive obtained a 2nd hand desk top computer from a business that was throwing things out...that has windows 7 on it but unfortunately its password protected so I am unable to log into it.

 

I know that Windows 10 is the lastest version, but how does Windows 7 still compare ?

 

Also on my Windows Xp machine at the moment, for some reason... it can seem to run ok again for some time..

 

but I have used it a while and try to access certain websites that I tend to use..I am finding thats when I notice issues or poor perfomance or freezing up.

 

and then the last few days... when I reswitch my machine on... on two main sites that I regulary visit and normally have no problem accessing...

 

for the first 5 minutes of attempting to access these sites... I unable to do so. but I can access some other websites which seems strange.

 

I have deleted temporary files etc anc certain cookies..and flushed DNS   (  ipconfig /flushdns ) which today I had to try this 2 or 3 times before I was able to then get connected

to the two websites I normally visit..

 

So something seems acting very strange.

 

I think I best delete the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool txts that I posted if this also could aid someone who may observe the file if they had intentions of targeting certain opportune persons who may post their issues on such websites.

 

 

Also your free disk space is a valuable commodity, which can be used for a number of different illicit purposes, including hosting porn, hosting spam, hosting infection spreading software.

Too big a subject to go into in detail, but there are numerous ways to compromise a computer and remain invisible to the owner of that machine.  It's particularly easy to do on an old operating system like XP, which was released at a time when computer security was very much a second thought.

 

WIndows 7, like XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, and hasn't been since 14th Jan 2020, so you have a similar problem in trying to secure them.

 

As I said in my first post, if you can't afford a computer that is able to run W10, then there are plenty of Linux distros that will operate fine on older hardware.

 

I see your XP version is 32 bit which sadly limits the number of Linux distros that will run on your hardware.

I am not familiar with linux at all and never experienced it.. so it would be a new learning curve.

 

I have tried one or two other options to Windows XP... but I had issues with getting used to them.

 

and becasue I am so used to using XP and I normally perfectly OK with using it and as familar as I need to be to use it for what I generally need.. without having to be too technical.

 

It suited me fine for my needs.

 

It just upsets me that there no longer seems any solution to even remove any threats any more from what you have said to at allow me to at least continue to use it for just very limited

options...

 

At one time not too long ago if I recall.. there was at least some types specilist virus removers for XP users even sometime after they stopped the updates.

 

SO does it really make much difference now, if Geeks2gos decisions is no longer even offering any other option that a member can use to even offer a most recent

type of antivirus remover that may be different to the main versions that you tend to find online.. such AVG, Microtrends , Kapersky, McaFee etc ..

 

or the types listed on wikipedia
