Computer Freezes oatWindows Bootup


B

Belprice

Hi Everyone,

I had some issues with malware and viruses and ran Norton Anti Virus, Super
Anti Spy and a program called Remove it, which someone suggested I use in
another newsgroup. I now think I have got ride of all my viruses and spyware,
however now when I restart my computer it freezes at the windows screen and
the blue status bar just keeps running and running. I can start the computer
in safe mode; hence this post, but I don’t know how to resolve the problem of
the computer freezing on start up.

I would be grateful for any help on this matter.

Thanks a million in advance.

You should not run two threads covering what is essentially the same
problem. Anyone stumbling on your latest post may not know what has gone
before.

Dear all,

Apologies to all and everyone that took offence at the multiple postings of
my questions/s regarding the problems I was/am having with my computer. I’m
very new to these online forums and was not completely aware of the protocols
that had to be followed. Also I’ve not yet worked out all the ins and outs or
all the great features available for computer novices like me, within these
expert Newsgroups. I must also add I eternally grateful to have such a vast
ocean of knowledge and free advice regarding all aspects of computing and I
can access this from the comfort of my own home. By their very nature such
sites are essential for all computer users, both new and expert and for those
of you whom contribute to these forums; I salute you for all the help and
advice you give so freely and generously.

Having said all that I am still having problems, when I start or restart the
compute it still hangs on the windows log in and I can only get access by
running in safe mode.

Apologies again and thanks in advance for any advise you may offer!

One more time:

I don't know RemoveIt, and can't comment on how good it is, but it's
not on my list of good anti-virus programs.

I'm pretty sure that it's that plagiarized app by PCbutts or whatever
he's calling himself these days. My understanding is that also alters
the Hosts file to prevent a person reaching reputable sites like
Bleeping Computer.

Does anyone know if that app produces any other undesireable effects? To
OP: it's important you delete your Hosts file. The location is:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

If you wish, you may replace it with a *good* Hosts file:

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

But, yes, Gerry and Ken are correct; you still have malware (or at the
very least, you have damage that it has left in its wake). Many people
have had success running one or both of these programs in Safe Mode:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

SUPERAntiSpyware
http://www.superantispyware.com/

The freeware versions are fine.

If you still have malware, you will have to post a HijackThis log to an
appropriate forum (courtesy of David H. Lipman):

Note: If you don't delete the Hosts file, as I mentioned above, you will
have trouble reaching these forums!

Finally, Belprice, in the event you choose to hang around in the
Microsoft newsgoups, note that using an actual news reader like Outlook
Express or Agent (rather than Microsoft's clunky and awkward Web
interface) is a much better experience. Also, it's always best to follow
"Netiquette."

HTH.

Hi Belprive,

"an Norton Anti Virus, Super
Anti Spy and a program called Remove it, which someone suggested I use in
another newsgroup"

I suggest you to remove every single one of them (except maybe Norton since
you paid for it). The problem is because you are running conflicting
protection programs that have real-time scanner.

Go to safe mode and uninstall any of them that you are willing to remove.
