Instant access

by padi89 / October 28, 2005 9:26 PM PDT

Hi, i recently noticed a blank space in my toolbar at the bottom right of the screen and when i scroll over it it says instant access.I cant find it in add/remove programmes and i have ran norton,adaware and spybot but i cant seem to get rid of it.I have looked at sites showing how to do it manuallly but as im a newbie i cant follow it.Does anyone know if there is a tool that i can purchase or download to get rid of this?,or does it mean getting a technician out?I run windows xp and i just turned it off in msconfig at startup,probably doesnt make any difference.If anyone can help i would be greatfull.thanks

It's hard to help if you don't give exact messages.

i couldnt give the exact message as when i unchecked it under msconfig/startup it hasnt shown up on the toolbar so i rechecked it and restarted but it doesnt come up.Under msconfig on startup it is listed as rundll32 EGCOMSERVICE_1051.dll,InstantAccess.I hope this may help.I have noticed too that upon turning off my computer a window shows up before shutdown saying Net broadcast eventwindow and then the default beep sounds before shutting down,could this have anything to do with it or is it another bug?Thanks

That helps, you're infected. . .

I did a search on EGCOMSERVICE in Google and found the answer below. It can be rather nasty.

After you've fixed it, go to my site below and scroll down to the Anti-Spyware suite. Do a little reading and install the recommended programs to prevent this from happening again.

Good luck,

Hi, i have followed all your instructions and i have ran norton,microsoft antispyware,spybot,adaware on normal and safemode including deleting the registry entrys suggested.I was wondering if there is a way of knowing that i have gotten rid of this problem?I still see it listed in msconfig/startup but it is unchecked and i still get that default beep on shutdown.Thank you for all your help and time it is much appreciated,padi.

One more little program. . .

At my site in the Software link is a program called Starter. Install it. It gives you a list of programs running like msconfig, but Starter will allow you to completely delete the entry. This should finish it up.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
