Had Department of Justice money pack virus. Now computer is acting strange. Could someone take a look at my hijackthis log?

@Geek

After some "poking" (pun completely intended) around I was able to find the log. But it wasn't on the main screen for me. I found it under the preferences button then I clicked on the statistics/log tab.



I ran the memory testing program after one pass it came up with no errors. Is one pass sufficient, how many passes should I have done?

Thanks

Here is my SAS log

@wheels, lol, sorry about the little porn site gig I threw in, all in fun. just being factious and not malicious.

did you check the size of your mem to see if you have all that you are supposed to have and that a stick hasn't gone bad or got knocked out of the socket?

I don't see any browser except IE. have you tried Firefox? you can down load it and transfer your IE settings to it just to see if that helps. I prefer it to anything else, it's fast and the most secure browser out there...

No problem. Even though it is hard to convey sarcasm through the Internet I figured out and got a little chuckle. :-)

I have had Firefox but, as I may or may not have said earlier I use speech recognition software to do a lot of typing, but is why I do not always delete my cookies. Internet Explorer is far more compatible with my speech recognition than is Firefox. Who knows, I might give it a try. You really don't need to type all that much when you are on the web anyway.

I have a suspicion that I need to update my bios. When I bought my computer parts my motherboard was purchased as an open box item from Newegg. I suspect I need to update my bios because when I put the computer to sleep the second of my 3 hard drives completely disappears. I have put off doing it until now because when I first looked into it for several people were having problems damaging their motherboard trying to update the bios within the Windows environment with a flash drive.

According to the manufacturer there are other ways to update the BIOS but the foolproof method involves 14 steps and you had to be able to physically unplug the computer for whatever reason. I use a wheelchair so it would have been difficult for me to do this. Do you know of anyone who has updated their bios with an asus p6t motherboard using a flash drive? I don't think it will completely alleviate all of my difficulties. But it might help.
Thanks

To better answer your first questio, I have Internet Explore, Google Chrome And Minefield. I don't know why they were not showing up. Sometimes things do not work well with Internet Explorer I find it handy to have a another browser. Although, I barely use them, I mainly use Internet Explorer.

I knew you were disabled, but didn’t know to what extent. I can empathize with you but try not to sympathize. I spent 10yrs in a chair from an auto accident that left me paralyzed on one side because of a fractured scull. At that time there was no speech recognition software and no internet. I had been a programmer on an IBM 65 computer for a Railroad Co. so, during those 10 years I built a main frame computer and learned several programming languages, bought one of the first desktop home computers that came out, a TRS80 Model I. For me, it’s over now and I thank God every day for his grace and blessings that pulled me through it.
I have no idea what to tell you on this but will be here to help you if at all possible..
And, IE is NOT my thing.. I stay as far away from it as possible. If I didn't have to have it on my computer to get MS Updates -- I would delete it. LOL

Thanks for sharing your story. It's always interesting to hear what other people have dealt with. If it wasn't for the compatibility of speech recognition software, I think I would stay away from IE.

It doesn't seem to be as compatible as other Internet browsers or poor have user-friendly is a better way to put it.



Have you heard of anyone having difficulty updating their bios using a flash drive with the Asus motherboards?

Thank you again for all of your help and timely responses. I really appreciate it.

Gee, I haven’t updated BIOS in so long I would have to pull out all my old notes just to see how to go about it….

My Gigabyte board has backup bios that kicks in if the bios is corrupt or damaged.
It also has 2 methods of updating, Qflash and @Bios. I don’t remember how, but have all the instructions close at hand.

As far as Asus is concerned, I haven’t used one since they were having some problems several years ago. About the only MOBO that I use now is Gigabyte and have had great luck with them and a lot of support from the Co. when needed.

I am an IT director and “go-to-guy” for a Hotel chain, so what I enjoy doing is tweaking my home computers to a level that I couldn’t get away with at work…
The computer I am on now is a Gigabyte 880GA with an AMD x4 960T opened to 6 cores and over clocked to 4.5 GHz. 2 monitors, 24" Acer wide screen and 16" HP. That way I can keep up with about 6 or 8 things running at the same time… 

At 70, I’m just thankful to wake up “this side of the dirt” each morning..

I think I'll just go with it and try to update within the Windows environment using a flash drive. They have had several years to work out the kinks. For my sake I hope they have done so.

I have noticed that the computer boots and gets to a fully functioning state faster than it used to, at least I think it does. So I thank you for your help. If I still can't get it working as quickly as I remember it did I might just have to go with a reformat. Stupidly, I did not make a backup image of my OS hard drive. I don't know why I chose not to do that.

You're right, more of us young or "more experienced" should take the stance that if we wake up above ground it's a good day and we should make it as good of a day as we possibly can.


There is one thing that throughout this entire process that I have never understood. Can you explain it to me? What color does a Smurf turn when you choke it? :-)

A family joke. My Son-in-law's name is Steve Murphy and I always call him "smurphy". When I get ticked off at him, I'll say, What color does a Smurf turn when you choke him? Well, you're about to find out!


What is the processor you're running, how much memory and mem speed?

Now I understand. I have heard people say that many times before. I had no idea what they meant.

My processor is an I 7 930. I have 6 GB of RAM the speed of the RAM if 1333 MHz.

Come-on wheels, I just know that is not over your head.. Smurfs ARE Blue. You can't "choke them 'til they turn blue" like the old saying goes....

i7 930 is about 2.8GHz + 6GB ram should be enough to handle what you're loaded with.

I am running a AMD x4 960T unlocked to 6 cores and OC'd to 3.9GHz (4.5GHz Turbo), 8GB 1600 Ram with timing set to 7,7,7,20,27,1T - It benchmarks Muzzle to Butt with a i7 3930k for about $470 Less. I am a long time over clocker and just love to see what I can get out of one...

I'm pretty short so, most things are over my head. So, you were planning to choke me indefinitely? :-)

It's all starting to come back to me. I quit with the routine maintenance because I was going to reformat, I was going to reformat after I updated the BIOS. I was going to update the bios to fix my hard drive problem and overclock. I think I decided not to overclock because last time I tried it with my first build (an Intel-based motherboard ) I broke the motherboard and had to get a new one. It was a huge pain in the neck but I did wind up upgrading my system.

If I do overclock is it okay to do a small overclock using the stock
fan? I don't really want to mess with installing a separate cooler. I like you sort of just enjoy the tinkering.

I don't waste my time on "small" and heat is your enemy. I never "Tinker" that would be like trying to fix my watch without knowing the meaning of Isochronism...

You're right. The payoffs from a small overclock is not worth the amount of heat that it would produce. I keep my computer in my bedroom which is small and hot anyway so it's probably a doubly bad idea.
