Can someone look at this log and advise please?
Not my PC but owner says they are having a lot of trouble with IE and while I've been using it there seems to be a lot of "Not responding" messages when
trying to do something. (New window, open a file etc). Its hooked up to my broadband connection at the moment, but I had to install Firefox to be usable on the internet. ( Well, it locked up twice trying to get into Press F1 using IE, I may be a bit impatient as its not mine)

Google Updater is on your system, along with AVG and symantec, Symantect are the people who made Norton, so try and get rid of them (I would wait for speedy's advice though)

Yeah. They told me they had loaded norton(which I personally hate) and I was going to tell them they shouldn't really have two anti virus programs going at the same time(or so I believe). From the look of it they have loaded a lot of programs to try and fix things (some good, some nuisance ones trying to make a sale). Hopefully Speedy or someone equally talented (if possible,...did I see something in a mag about an award?;) ) can check the log for nasties.

Thanks Speedy. The JFaxMail thing I don't know about but there was a lot of invalid shared dll links removed by CCleaner relating to WinFax and an error message on startup about Winfax. I'm guessing something else was uninstalled and they just removed all the shared components and clobbered Winfax as well.

Speedy Gonzales
17-03-2008, 07:12 PM
Hmm ok, well if Winfax isnt working or its bringing up errors on startup about it.

You might as well uninstall it, or uninstall it, then reinstall it.

Altho I cant remember JFaxMailNTHelper.exe being part of Winfax

Did u uninstall Winfax?? It sounds like you deleted its folder, and forgot to uninstall it

Not my machine so I don't know the history but thats what I was getting at before about the shared dll's.
Winfax is not installed at the moment but Wtnsetup.exe is in the error message at startup so maybe it was at some stage. Now, how to stop that error message. Google says JFax is part of Black Ice printer driver?
Might delete those entries as well. Black Ice is a firewall I think?(Not on this system) ....ah...just googled it, also a fax program.

Speedy Gonzales
17-03-2008, 08:05 PM
Thats why it bringing up that message then, files for Winfax are in startup

These entries belong to Winfax as well

hey you can check out what startup entries you have by using this utility (free). Very useful for deleting bad startup entries.

http://cupersoft.com/content/view/45/

Works with both XP and Vista (and even 2000, Me, 98, 95!! not that you'll even use them)

All startup errors seem to have been resolved. (Thanks Speedy). IE may have issues but I've had enough for one night and as I don't use IE I think I'll call it quits. Thanks guys.:sleep

No worries, whats the prob with IE anyway?

IE keeps stalling. Seems to have trouble with their homepage. (my.safeappsoftware.com) Maybe some content on there its having trouble with.
I might get them to try Firefox and see if theres any difference.

Speedy Gonzales
18-03-2008, 07:30 AM
Update IE, for whatever version is installed. if it hasnt been patched.

Looks ok in FF, but it doesnt bring up the Get netvibes ginger window in the middle, like it does with IE

If its IE 7, addins can cause probs, and they can also make IE 7 crash

Check and see what addins were installed recently. And disable them, and then see if its any better

bones
18-03-2008, 08:00 AM
Updated IE last night but didn't seem to make any difference.
Tried your suggestion about the add ins, THAT made a difference!
Seems to be racing now. Would stall 90% of the time on their homepage but I've been to it a dozen times now and no problem.
Thanks once again.:clap
