My 2nd post problem persists (I'm going crazy..) PC Crash!

by Leon_26 / March 20, 2008 7:47 AM PDT

My computers crashes when I'm browsing pages after a while with muliple instances most of time. My cable modm stops flashing, and after a few seconds (If I reload pages nothing happens, like if it is stuck) my computer crashes. I think it as somthing to do with a mistmache inofmation in tcpip, or it as something to do with it. Already tried a lot of things, i will name them:

- change the slot memory (1gb)
- open the case
- re set my tcpip and dhcp
- No spyware or adware or even virus found!
- All drivers up to date! No conflits!
- Cookies cleaned!
- Cpu not heating!
- Unpllug a possible conflict soundblaster live!
- All slot's well pluged!
- see problems in eventviewr (none found unless EVENT_TCPIP_TCP_CONNECT_LIMIT_REACHED)
- uninstalled some possibel conflict problems programs

Click on my name...

Email me your hijackthis log. (see google for that program.)

I think (you tell me) that you now have an issue that only happens once in awhile. When we get to that point it could be hardware or some program, service or other gremlin. The hijackthis log sometimes helps us spot a service or other item we can do without.

In parting, here's the site I use to simplify the services that Windows has running (no reason to leave it enabled if we don't use it.) Read

Sorry but this is one I disagree with. We could debate it but let's list what we can do without and still have a working XP.

1. C:\Programas\RamCleaner\RamCleaner.exe

2. How many firewalls? notes it has a possible firewall and you have outpost. To top that off the Event Viewer has noted issues in the TCPIP stacks if I recall. (correct me if wrong.)

3. CursorXP is very optional. If I'm crashing, it's out.

4. msimn.exe. Your choice here. If you're not using it, toss it.

5. BitComet. Toast here. P2P apps and crashing is something I bail on. I can't offer any help when P2P is running. Just too many crashes is why I bail. I have to wait till the owner gets tired of crashing.

6. Extra button: (no name) - {e2e2dd38-d088-4134-82b7-f2ba38496583} - %windir%\Network Diagnostic\xpnetdiag.exe (file missing)

Any of the File Missing items could be removed in Hijackthis without ill effect. It's just good to be tidy on these items.

7. "livecall" as in MSN Live? It's been flakey for some. I'd do without any MS "Live" component for now.

Good luck,

In reply to: RamCleaner?

This crash was a little bit different!

Once again in firefox, loading 4 pages, and seem to be no activity, for about 20 seconds, after 3 of the 4 pages finally load and computer crashes! this is not the usual, but since i've only one crash (so far) I have to wait to see if now it's gona be like that!

Sended youa mail before this post with the new hijackthis log!

Is that a trojan or a telnet server?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / March 21, 2008 12:56 AM PDT

1. notes something I'd shutdown on this machine fast.

2. Why was msiexec running at the time of the HJT log?

3. At the end are two "file missing" entries. Are they missing? If so this could be some trojan had killed your BitDefender in an odd way.

I guess I have a trojan again!!
by Leon_26 / March 21, 2008 3:44 AM PDT

1- well I think its a trojan!!I don' know him, killed him from task manager but offcourse he will come back again...
2- I really can't say but I was doing some things at the same time, don't remember now what..
3- Nope, they are'nt but they are disabled by outpost to not connect to the internet!(what do I do?)

That's not good.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / March 21, 2008 3:48 AM PDT

I think your machine should be getting better by now. But head to our Spyware forum for advice on trojan hunting.

As to bitdefender and outpost I'd resolve that issue since running with a busted defense system is like having none.

so far so good :)

In reply to: That's not good.

Well my machine is even faster :), now i'll solve the trojan issue and hope everything is fine, so far didn't get a crash, but just started to browse now, but I can say that by now, usually i would have already get one..

Thanks again and best regards, and see you next issue!!
