Is Altnet a problem ? Spybot can't get rid of it as it is in use .. safe mode also.
Other progs have same result.
Computer boots to system32 window for whatever reason. Found a trjan lurking there but still persists to open here. Any help appreciated.

Suggest Google Altnet

Use Spybot (http://www.spybot.info/en/download/index.html) to remove it.

Download it, download the latest detection updates, install both, then scan.

Spybot identifies a line in registry but can't delete it. Is it okay to go in and delete manually? It is in Hkey local_machine\ software\ altnet

Run spybot in safe mode, with the latest detection updates, and do another scan. See if it removes it.

Also see if there's an Altnet entry in Add/remove programs. If there is, uninstall it.

Thanks Speedy. Done all that .. it found no issues. Same with CCleaner & AVG & Adaware all updated.
Everything seems okay except it boots to an open system32 window !!

Or use msconfig.

Learning all the time !

I uploaded the file then what did I do wrong.. Obviously I pressed the wrong button somewhere

16-07-2006, 09:21 PM
I uploaded the file then what did I do wrong.. You would of seen a URL for your image given after you uploaded it which you then copy and post back into your post. Alternatively you can view your newly uploaded image and then copy and paste the URL from the address bar of your browser. :)

The pic looks ok, but u can remove the kernelfaultcheck entry.

I would also look in control panel / admin tools / event viewer.

Look under the system or application. See what entries show a X or an entry saying system. Double on it, highlight the text by pressing ctrl-c together, and paste what it says here.

I thought Ihug Ultra was dead?? Whats it doing in your startup?

cowboy stu
16-07-2006, 09:49 PM
will follow those instructions thanks
When they changed us to bordernet the ultra setup was left on .. same internal card so I assume it is still required. Iwill experiment to see if it is essential .. something else to muck up .. standby

The Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).
Not sure if this is what you mean . It relates to Service control manager Red cross with error beside it .
