I have no idea how these lines made it to your autoexec.bat file ????

Please right click on autoexec.bat file and then click on edit.

Delete the two lines -

C:\>attrib -s -h -r C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WININET.DLL

C:\>del C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WININET.DLL



Save the file.


Reboot the PC. Reinstall IE. This will get you the latest version of wininet.dll file onto your PC.

Let me know how it goes. Post a fresh HJT log and also the contents of the autoexec.bat file. I want to see what else is in there !!!!!

The autoexec.bat (which is found at C:\autoexec.bat) now contains only one line:

SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\WINDOWS\Twain_32\Scanwiz;C:\WINDOWS\Twain\Scanwiz

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

I have another autoexec.bat on my computer under C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\EBD, but I don't know if it runs when windows starts up.

It contains the following lines:

Lets do this one more time !!!


Please reboot the PC in Safe Mode.

Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.

Reboot the PC in Normal Mode.

Post a fresh HJT log along with smitfiles.txt here

It is running so much better. I don't notice the things I did before. The only problem I have is that it is not shutting down completely. It gets to the screen that says windows is shutting down, but it never finishes. Also I was wondering what protection you recommend to help prevent problems like this from happening again. You have been so much help. When I get some money I will not forget to come back and donate some to you through pay pal.

Hi,


I think that the shutdowwn problems are due to driver conflicts.

Unfortunately I cannot pinpoint the issues. However, Microsoft has this page which should help you in trouble shooting the issue - http://support.micro...kb;en-us;202633.

Let me know how it goes.

We can then fine tune your PC for a better performance

Hello,

Still not sure why computer is not shutting down all the way. But would like to know how to keep spyware and adware off my computer in the future, and you mentioned fine tuning the computer.

Thanks.

Fine tuning was to get adequate protection on your PC to prevent infections in future.

Regarding the problems with shutdown, did you visit the Microsoft page I gave you and try to troubleshoot the issue???

I did go to the website you gave me and did what it said. I am thinking it might be something that I have installed, but I recently installed everything (the computer was wiped clean when I bought it). I don't know where to even begin on that one.

Hi,

Could you check the system logs and let me know if any error messages or warnings show up in it ??


For the error logs, click on Start ---> Settings ---> Control Panel.

Double click on Administrative Tools ---> Computer Management.

Click on System Tools ---> Event Viewer.

There are three categories under it. Check the System logs first. Also check if you can find anything in the other two categories.

Specifically look for any errors / warnings around the time of shutdown (or before any boot ups).
