View Full Version : laptop freezing

14-12-2010, 08:09 PM
Hi there, I have a Compaq Presario B3800 which has been freezing when the screen saver is activated, it has also been taking ages for it to shut down. I have Microsoft windows XP home edition running. Please note that I have tried ccleaner for cleaning the registery but it didnt make any difference. Can you please advice for a solution for the problem.

Turn off the screensaver.

What anti-virus are you running?

Post a Hi-jackthis log.

boot into safe mode / networking then post a hijackthis log

14-12-2010, 08:27 PM
what does post hijackthis log mean? and how do you do it after booting into safe mode

14-12-2010, 08:33 PM
You need to download Hijack this then install it. Shut down the laptop and restart, as it is restarting keep pressing F8 repeatedly and you and you should then get the option to boot into safe mode, choose safe mode with networking.

Once it is booted it will look funny as hardly any drivers are running. Run hijack this and save the lag file then post its contents here for Speedy to look at.

Hijack this download is below in my signature just click Hijack this and it should take you there

Looks like the freezing maybe because youre using more than 1 firewall. If your use / install more than one firewall, they'll conflict with each other.

Uninstall Mcafee. Or Spysweeper (if this includes a firewall). I cant see AVG in this log

Tick these, then tick fix checked

Close browsers

Is Symantec's firewall still on the system?? if it isnt tick this, or uninstall Liveupdate

O23 - Service: Automatic LiveUpdate Scheduler - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\ALUSchedulerSvc.exe (file missing)

You may have to tick the above entries first then reboot, then uninstall Java / Nortons / Mcafees or Spysweeper. They may not work / uninstall in safe mode

Thank you all for all the info, I will try your suggested solutions, cheers
