This doesn't happen very often but I've noticed that if I go on the internet, then log off, the computer sometimes acts wierd while I'm running other offline programs or the screensaver. Whenever the clock changes time (even advances a minute) any program I'm running acts like as if I've somehow Alt-Tabbed to the desktop, and if the screensaver's up, it kicks out. I've ran two Spyware and a virus scanner and came up with nothing, and I've noticed that the only two ways I can fix it is either to log off, then back on, my side of the computer, or run one of my computer games then exit out of it.

Any tips?

Sound like corrupt files to me. Good this it corrupt files are easy to fix.

Go start < run and type sfc /scannow this will give a blue bar when it goes reboot. This needs the Windows XP Cd so have that in your computer before you start. This replaces all corrupt or missing system files.

Hope this helps

I may have done it wrong, but this is what I did:

I put the XP CD in first, then went to Start - Run, and typed in the command you requested (sfc scannow), and when I commanded it to run, all I see is the command prompt window pop up then out, in a literal blink. I rebooted the computer, but it didn't make any indications that any corrupted/missing files were being fixed. Not only that, but it didnt fix the "kicking" prblem I'm still having.

Hi

I am very very sorry, but I typed the command wrong :tazz: . The correct one is

sfc /scannow

I am sorry for any delay in fixing your problem that this causes.

I have gone back and edit my last post so any one else that reads this does not type the wrong thing. Again very sorry.

Tried it. Still doing the same thing, even after I rebooted the computer. I'm thinking is has to do with one of the programs that run when I'm online, then it gets cancelled out somehow when I play a certain game that's on my computer. Thing is, I don't know what the problem program is.

I waht to see what is running you you computer when the problem starts happening.

Could you please download HijackThis if you don\'t have it. and when the problem starts run it and save a log. Post that log here.

Might give me some clue as to what I have to fix or it might show up that your are infected in witch case I will ask you to go to the malware forum. Also try and work out what is causeing it by doing things you normaly do before if happens one at a time and test the result.

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.


also while you're in there look for anything refering to the system file checker

Hi

I have been meaning to get back and post here.

I can see malware in that log(one Trojan at lest) you should post it Here

I also notice that you have a registry repair program, they can cause many issues, I would recomend you uninstall it.

EDIT: Do what is said below as well.

before you uninstall the registry repair program...see if it has a restore function so that you can restore any changes you made to the system...then uninstall it
