View Full Version : Script Failure. Press left mouse button to continue

I was just computering along happily when suddenly this (http://imagef1.net.nz/files/Error.bmp) appeared top center of my screen.

Does anyone have any ideas what this is?? I thought it might have been a virus/spyware but everything appears clean...

When you say you are "computering along", do you mean to say that you were surfing the net or programming or gaming etc.? (A dumb statement here) If you encountered this error message while browsing through websites, I would say this could well be just an advertisement only. What happens when you left-click your mouse?

Cheers :)

It happened while I was browsing 'my computer', a few minutes after I had stopped playing F.E.A.R.

It just happened again while I was loading Prince of persia: warrior within.

It doesn't really seem to be connected to anything

When I left click my mouse, the dialog goes away, but nothing seems to crash or anything.

I thought I recognized this error message. It is from my Amiga 1000 days and it was a fatal error announcement when the Amiga crashed.

Now...I wonder what it is doing on your system...I smell malware!

check it out here.....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Meditation

Someone ripped something from an Amiga! Haven't seen that error in a long time. Pressing left mouse would make the Amiga reboot.

Yup its what the Amiga used to say (without the script bit, but with the Guru Meditation bit). When it crashed.

Sounds dodgy to me. Got a third-party firewall running?

It looks to me like its very likely to do with winamp, as it does mention beatvisualization.maki which is located in C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins\Winamp Modern\scripts

(from http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=234954)

And I do have winamp - although that thread refers winamp v5.12, and I have 5.21 (maybe a typo???)

but I'm not using a german language pack so I don't see why it has a problem

I don't know why I'd get anything to do with an Amiga on here :confused:, as for the firewall I am running norton internet security 2005

.....and I bet Norton let the rascal right on it too...

IMO, I hate Norton!

As I see it, there is NO WAY that you can get an AMIGA error mesage whilst in Winamp...just doesn't make any sense at all....

I smell something burning in the woodpile here..........mightta been hacked...no?

17-04-2006, 03:11 PM
..and something new here too.....

Torrentz.com is probably responsible for your hacked error message...I just hope it's not another "payloaded timebomb" like the old W95.CIH.damaged from a few years ago.....

have you been naughty and getting some...er....illegal stuff? This looks surprizingly like a new trojan to me...but I am gonna wait and see.

BTW: on the Leo Leport show today (US version) he mentions a lot of USB2 failures...more than he can say is coincidental...might this be a new one in the wild now too?

Did anyone actually read that winamp thread? it looks much more likely that it's a bug in winamp, besides 'guru meditation' is not just an amiga error; infact "Guru meditation failure" appears to be a common error amongst the jedi knight series of games...

I also found this (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=231279)which is the same error I am getting - I have tried deleting the skin config file as suggested in that thread, and I will see what happens I guess...
