Greetings, this is my first post on this board. I consider myself somewhat computer-savvy. The computer I use I built myself... I'm running into a strange problem that is more annoying than harmful, but I'm getting tired of it and wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on how to fix it... I'll start by posting my PC specs.

Asus A7V266-E mobo
AMD Athlon 1900+ 1.6 Mhz Proc
1.0 GB of RAM
Windows XP Home OS
Western Digital Raptor 10k rpm 74 GB hard drive (x2 raid 1 array)
Antec Server case with 400 watt PS

As a side note, I have no pirated software installed on this computer at all.

Ok, my problem only occurs when I first log on to the internet (I'm on dialup so it also occurs when I have to re-log on after a drop) But for a minute or two afterwards (sometimes longer, sometimes less) I get a "Server Busy" error... You know the one that says "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy". and nothing works for a while... I can click on my quick launch icons, or stuff in the start menu and the hourglass pops up, but the program doesn't. After a little while though, everything I've clicked on all pops up at once and things go back to normal (that's usually how I can tell when it's working again... I click my 'e' and go do something and when I notice the explorer browser is up I know it's fixed) At first I thought it was a virus but I've ran AVG free (my standard virus checker) as well as trend micro's online house call and they find nothing... I also have SpyBot, AdAware, and Spyware Doctor, and they find nothing wrong. (aside from the occasional error, but even after fixing them it still does the same thing) This first started happening when I was playing around with networking my laptop to my PC (because my PC's modem was on the fritz so I used the network to share the internet connection) My laptop started doing it first, but I don't remember if it was immediately after setting up the network or not. but anyways I thought it might have something to do with the network so after I got a new modem for my PC I attempted to remove the workgroup, but it won't let me access the "view my workgroups"... says I don't have rights, but I am under the administrative account on my PC when I'm doing this... It's confusing, and I can't find any of my professors or friends who know how to fix it (aside from a complete re-format which I REALLY don't want to do) any ideas? I tried to be as detailed as possible, but if you need more info I'll gladly provide it, just ask :)

Thanks!

Hello Arkansas :)

I would recommend you to first click on greyknights link below and follow the instructions for a clean up to make sure this is not a malware issue. Do an online scan : panda active scan ( link provided below) www.trendmicro.com
Then we can think of conflicting softwares or OS corruption. Let us know about your clean up success.

Greetings Chicago ;)

I think the steps leading up to using hijack this may have solved my problem... right after restarting the computer after doing all of the steps in greyknight17's tutorial, I ran hijack this to get the log report and when I connected to the internet everything came right up... hasn't done that in probably over a year... However, just to be safe I wanted to post the HJT result log to see if there was anything else I needed to do as cleanup... I'm also gonna continue on the steps on Greyknight17's list after I hear back from you. Thank you so much for this help, I feel like I'm finally gaining control over my poor computer again :sayyes: I've attatched the log. Thanks again :)

...[edit]... Sorry was looking back over GreyKnight17's instructions and realized I missed a step... didn't close all the programs that was running. I'm gonna do such and re-run HJT... I'll leave this results up just in case it's not an issue for you, but wanted to do everything the correct way ^^

Well apparently that one time of being good was a fluke, as my computer returned to its same old ways after I restarted from running HJT the second time. However, here is the log file from the second run. Thanks again.
