Programs disappearing after a few secs of opening it

by fanghan / May 14, 2010 5:48 PM PDT

Hey guys,

Im having problems opening some problems like divx installer. They would not open even when i used the administrator account to try. Nothing pop up at all. I tracked the programs using task manager but it only showed the programs hanging at a specific memory usage and disappearing.

Another problem is that programs that support Chinese would change immediately to chinese despite being as default english. All my language settings are set to English, as well as the system locale, which was set to Chinese at first but changed back to English. Basically, the whole question is specified at this other forum : . Hope u guys can help me. Thx ~

But I see far too many issues to fix in your log file.

I will not write at length but can I ask you why you would install TeaTimer, some firewall from 2004 and OTHER items on Windows 7?

In other words, uninstall what you added from the stock setup. At some point it is likely the machine will start to behave. Sadly the log file points to many problems and I would exceed my usual 3 paragraphs to tell you about each one and why. So to save time, go back to stock and add ONE antivirus, use the Windows 7 firewall and be sure there is no malware according to Grif at;forum-threads

Sorry but the OS and machine has been tampered with too much.
