You have to click twice on the Accept button to accept the license agreement or else it will just sit there. You may not see the license agreement if you have other windows open due to the fact that it does not pop to the top of any other open window forms. So close or minimize all other windows when running MGtools.

Websites like this cannot run for free. But at anyrate the downloads ( as explained in the READ & RUN ME FIRST ) are always under and icon looking like below with the flashing down arrow.

Default Re: Anti V update / flash / silverlight w/XP lagging

in re" to jmho remark..

you have done a very good detailed job of instructions..
and they are strict..
that is why i followed one by one..

your instructions say

If you cannot download required programs on the infected PC, download them using another PC and copy them to the infected PC via CD or USB drive.
Do you want your PC fixed?? If yes then attempt to finish everything requested. Please do not cheat by skipping any steps. Attempt to run ALL steps in the READ & RUN ME. The only steps you should skip are ones that you are blocked from running by your problems.
You are only hurting yourself and you will waste more time in the long run if you ignore or skip steps.
and on step 5 < page 1> it days to down load CCleaner..
with a big Green down load her button.
-- I errored.. 3 times.. hitting the green button..
I saw the other one but it was smaller and blinking .. and looked to me like ad ware.. -- guess the joke was on me..
< i wasnt laughing.. after a month of trouble and 4 day's of seriious solution searching.

i did see that big green arrow pointingto the download.
I believe on < page 2..> was where the hint was, and it was quite some time before i got to page to and the "Hint".

maybe you could add to your instructions..
)( not the big green arrow that says download.. )(
)( .. dont look at the man behind the curtain.. ; ) poor attempt at wizzard humor

I am thankful for the help.. and i'm sure i missed some thing.. if its on page 1 I sure missed it.. i went back again.. and still didnt find it .. but i'm exausted..

still cannot fing the other log file
I have the
Rkreport
MGlogs.zip
MBAM-log
Hitman pro


and third try to ttach.. they are loading in the manage attachment box .. but have not seen them sho up here.
If you could tell me which one is missing ..
thanks..

The green button you refer to is not in the READ & RUN ME. It was present in an advertisement on the CCleaner download page and the adverstisement is not label CCleaner. It is labeled for what ever the adrvertisement is at the time. It changes! But quite clearly it is not for CCleaner. However since it confused you, it may confuse others and I added the icon to look for the download locations right but the CCleaner link in the READ & RUN ME.

Your Malwarebytes log shows that you too no action. You need to fix what it found. Logs need to be saved after fixing as noted in the READ & RUN ME procedure for running Malwarebytes.

Your logs show that you are using MSconfig to control startups. You should not be using it as a long term startup manager. Your PC should be in normal startup mode. ad this to better understand why not to use MSconfig: Dealing with Startup Process

Please put your PC in normal startup mode right now.

You have a bunch of security issues due to not updating software on your PC:
  1. Windows XP SP2 << you need to update to SP3. Support is going away in April. I suggest you update now before you cannot. Are you 100% sure that you will never be connecting this PC to a network?????
  2. MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 - very old and a major secrity risk and whether you think you use it or not you OS does.
  3. FIREFOX: 16.0.2 << Too old and a security risk. Update to current which is 26.0. But in reality, if you are not going to be using this PC for surfing then you should just uninstall Firefox and Chrome. Google puts a bunch of unncessary processes, services and tasks on a PC. You would be better of without them.

Please download OTM by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.
  • Run OTM.exe by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista, Win7 or Win8, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the lines from the below codebox to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C

  • Close OTM.

saved in the form of Date and Time mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log. Just look for the most recent .log file. Attach

Now please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Seven, right-mouse click it and select Run as Administrator.
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Note: That JRT may reset your home page to a google default so you will need to restore your home page setting if this happens.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Attach JRT.txt to your next message.
Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista, Win7 or Win8, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator).

Then attach the below logs:
  • the C:\_OTM\MovedFiles log
  • the JRT.TXTlog
  • C:\MGlogs.zip
Make sure you tell me how things are working now!

Please skip the update to SP3 for now and complete the rest of the instructions I gave you and attach the new logs.

All the questions/problems posted in your last message are not topics for the malware forum. They belong in the Software Forum.

Note: Malwarebytes is always free to use. Only your trial for the pro version ended. And I did not ask you to run Malwarebytes in my last message anyway.

Okay your logs are clean. Are you having any malware problems? Slowness is not due to malware. It is due to PC specs ( slow, old PC and inadequate memory ) and what you are running. You need to triple your memory from 1 GB to 3 GB.

The error you mentioned about newengine.dll is due to some junk you installed. I see the below in your startup processes:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NextLive] C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\newnext.me\nengine.dll",EntryPoint -m l

1) I'd like to ask best way to halt start up items that i dont need..
I had used msconfig (you corrected me on that) and want to know if there is another way? to halt unwanted start up items.

2) where should i post on this problem. I still cannot update to sp3 .
i have auto update selected for 6pm every day.

in IE @ the update page i get [Error number: 0x80244019]
The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem.
Microsoft Online Assisted Support (no-cost for Windows Update issues)

i spent some time w/Victor on support yesterday but the free turned into not so free.
he said i had corrupt files or virus.. and wanted 100$ to run their 'Advanced software".

similar experience at HP..

All the virus scan's have been negative.. but ? I dont know about corrupt files. I would like to get auto update working.. Is there a better forum for that ?

3) should i run any of the programs we used again. I think some of them found errors but we did not select to fix them. your recommendations appreciated.
going to check malware bites one more time forgot to check that before writing this

report on how its running..
I have up graded internet service.. and may be able to upgrade ram next week.
however still have "issue" with sp3 updates and/ netflix and not being able to go forward or back in time while watching movie .. still wrap's up all resources and no one from netflix or ISp can find a reason.. I try using the close window x or task manager if i can. some times i have used the "hard shut off" to remedy the problem.. could i have damaged some thing doing that.
thanks for your help.

Victor who? From where?

Try just downloading the full Windows XP SP3 installation file from the below link:

You do not need to run anything again. They were not problems which is why we do not have you do anything with them.

Default Re: Anti V update / flash / silverlight w/XP lagging

Further explaination.
I tried getting support from netflix <cant rewind video w/o winding up all system resources and computer dosent really crash.. but it seems to be in an epileptic fit that dosent end.> So i was searching solutions w/google and found a similar case and then i found the "Chat" option at Netflix. After a chat then 3 phone calls..
we reinstalled silverlight 3 times.. i had put an older version on but its at latest version.. we tried using a mr Fixit to check silverlight but it didnt work. and multiple unsuccessful remedies. after 1 chat and 3 phone calls they suggested HP Tech support.
_- some one in the background at Netflix support said i had an ip issue - but that didnt make sence to me.. < I had just got back home with a different router/modem with faster download> they set it up at the Provider office and it appeared to be working fine to check web pages but still had the issue with not being able to go back <or forward> in the movie with out the "problem" happening. I dont know what the tek guy at netflix was seeing.. but said some thing about not recognizing the ip address.
any how they had exausted their list of solutions and sent me on to HP .. which led me also to Microsoft.
the folks at netflix had a phone # for HP and i tried it.. and I also tried the chat/ at Microsoft < Victor was at the chat option for update problems at Microsoft > and both of them tried a mr fixit and a bit more and concluded that i needed to $$$ for the're special software check up.. Victor was with microsoft ..
< and that's the short version>

After that i talked to the Internet Service provider Tech man "Russ" and he cant see any thing wrong on the ip issue the Netflix person mentioned. however.. Russ may have some Ram that i can get to up the memory for this computer. AHH!

I'm going to download / run the sp3 update you gave me.. thanks..for that.
will post any success.
the good news is not Blue screen
and she still opens and runs.. hopefully sp3 download will work

wow.. not ready to say Victory! just yet..
however success in download and install sp3 file you gave me.

I was able to download and install and reboot
Opened IE and went to windows download page
able to install new downloader
checked for up dates and downloaded and installed 130 updates.
reboot and recheck windows update page and it just spinns' there
not an error like i used to get but the tracking bar is in a continious loop searching my computer for information to see what updates are necessary.

so I rebooted 3 times.. same scenario.
also.. still have issue with auto start up programs
especially Carbonite preinstaller- there is a free trial with online back op of files that i may want to use some time.. but i dont need the darn thing on auto startup. It seems to be on a delay and just when i'm working on some thing it will initialize maybe in the background.. because things get really slow.. but the icon in the bottom of the screen < that says which windows or software is running> does not immediatly show up.. it takes ? minutes? and then when i see it .. ah ha! that's the trouble -

- so today i turn on task manager and watch and it sends the system reasources to 99% and i close it down once with the "X" and again with the right click close with the mouse.

while watching the Task Mgr.. the sys resources hang at 99% or 100 and its an svchost.exe that is using the 99%

This is why i was using the msconfig to alter the startup..

I could use another solution..

-- so.. after running ie and chrome for short while.. it was slow as molasses.
could not open new tabs.. had trouble playing video on IE what's new page sound was choppy.. it was choppy last night also..

i rebooted and just opened chrome and was able to get to this page and make this note.

I'm curious why.. after the install link and update to sp3 ( verified by system properties) that going back to the windows update page.. dosent seem to work properly. Just glad i was able to get the updates to do it once.


I will post more after getting to use internet .. and will ckeck back to see if you have any suggestions..

report on watching netflix..
Yesterday was worse than ever after all the "tech support" with
Netflix - Joya
HP ?
Microsoft "Victor"
and my ISP "russ"

so this am after 3 reboots
I start watching netflix
I found the Carbonite installer and used task Mgr to end process.
chrome usage on Netflix is running 52% to 75%
and video is running < except when going back on play back.> that still gives the svchost 99-100%

I'm tempted to call Netflix again .. < glutton for punishment >
and see if that ip connection issue is still there.. on there end.

the Major improvement is that now.. i dont need Closed Caption to understand what 's in the movie. the words and sound are in sync
-- oops. . that is no longer true..

after 4 min of playing movie - video tends to lag behind words and much delay in response to "pause"

pre November 2013 it would just pause movie.. and Rebuffer and i could move forward and back in a show with just 10-20 sec of rebuffering < this was on a mifi type of internet connection on an admittedly old insufficient ram laptop computer ... post November its different.

do you think its time to try some thing else.. a mr fixit/ silverlight?

waiting for instructions

Please post in the Software Forum. None of what you are mentioning are topics for the Malware Forum. Even the link I gave you for XP SP3 is something that really should have been in the Software Forum. My only last comment is one stated several times, and that is, you need to add more memory. Other than that we are really finished in this forum. I will take a quick look at one more log from MGtools though just to check status on SP3 and other items.

Run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista, Win7 or Win8, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator).

Then attach the below logs:
  • C:\MGlogs.zip
