    Thumbs down Breaking down ?

    Have windows xp pro and over last week the following problem is getting worse. It doesnt seem to matter what I may be doining playing a game checking email etc my computer just jams up solid and the only way I can get it to work again is to press the reboot button. It will check the disk before starting up but it is sometimes jams while it is checks the disk for errors.. It will jam up like this 3 or 4 times in a row and last time I rebooted it it lost the correct time and it also damaged my anti virus key and the message I am getting is key is damaged and cant be installed.It appears I may have something that is about to give up the ghost so any help will be appreciated.Thanks

    Get this from here

    Unzip this file, and run it then copy and paste the log here.

    I fixed a pc over Xmas with the same prob, it kept on checking for errors on bootup.

    I did a scan with Xoftspy, and it found over 250 entries relating to spyware/adware/trojans/worms lol. This maybe your prob.

    Paste the log here, and I'll/we'll have a look at it.

    Is that ALL of the log? Looks a bit short.

    I would install SP1 or SP2.

    Run HJT again. Tick this entry and tick fix checked. Close browsers first.

    O23 - Service: Service Hosts (ServiceHost) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\shost.exe (file missing) - This may belong to a worm.

    Do you know what this belongs to??

    Right now I would back up any wanted/needed data from your harddrive.
    Then you could look at doing whatever (HiJack this or the seagate harddrive tester)

    You might also look at obtaining the latest version of memtest (google for it), shoving that on a bootable floppy or cd, and testing your RAM (after backing up your harddrive)

    Start up organizer is a small program to allow you to arrange what programs you want to start at each startup .The reason there is not much showing is that because of this having the computer freeze all the time I formated c: and reinstalled xp plus just Firewall anti virus and mail programs to see if perhaps some of my software may be causing the freezing so the least I installed the less software to eliminate as the cause of this problem I am having. Really appreciate the help you are giving me Thanks Regards Ron

    Ah ok then. Just make sure u install the motherboard drivers FIRST.

    Before u install any other driver. Some devices may or wont work properly without them.

    Whats the hardware in the system?? (ie: motherboard/PCI cards etc). And the CPU/speed, and amount of ram in the system.

    If it still freezes, it could be the hardware.

    try memtest, test harddrive, and see if you can check your pc's temperatures
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
