Multiple Problems Related To Computer and Internet Freezing

Post by yokoryu on Thu 26 Nov 2015, 8:58 am

Hello! I am a new user and I have created an account to learn more about fixing my own computer and to solve its specific issues. I'm not sure where to post certain questions since I don't know what is the chief problem. Basically, my computer keeps freezing and my anti-virus and anti-malware software are not picking up viruses. CCleaner also doesn't make any improvements. In these circumstances the ability to use CTRL+ALT+DEL also fails and I often have to fix the wireless adapter in the network settings in control panel. My primary internet browser is Mozilla Firefox 42.0. My computer also runs very hot and freezes after more than a few hours of use.

I believe that the computer and internet hangs are due to something operating within the internet software apparatus within my computer. When the freezing is at its worst, I must utilize a cold boot and forcefully turn off the computer manually.

I have other problems such as the system properties area crashing every time I attempt to access it. It also doesn't run the fastest.

I have downloaded AdwCleaner to work alongside the other Malwarebytes. I'm just waiting for your response and instructions before I do anything more.

Hello and welcome to GeekPolice.Net My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
*************************************************************************
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your Desktop.

Before starting AdwCleaner, close all open programs and internet browsers, then double-click on the AdwCleaner icon.



If Windows prompts you as to whether or not you wish to run AdwCleaner, please allow it to run.
When the AdwCleaner program will open, click on the Scan button as shown below.



AdwCleaner will now start to search for malicious files that may be installed on your computer.
To remove the files that were detected in the previous step, please click on the Clean button.



AdwCleaner will now prompt you to save any open files or data as the program will need to reboot the computer. Please do so and then click on the OK button. AdwCleaner will now delete all detected adware from your computer. When it is done it will display an alert that explains what PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and Adware are. Please read through this information and then press the OK button. You will now be presented with an alert that states AdwCleaner needs to reboot your computer.
Please click on the OK button to allow AdwCleaner reboot your computer.A log will be produced. Please copy and paste this log in your next reply.
*********************************************
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from here.
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

  • It should update automatically if the computer is connected to the internet.

Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.

Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.

•Temporarily disable your Antivirus and any Antispyware real time protection before performing a scan. Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.

•Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator

•The tool will open and start scanning your system.

•Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.

•On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.

I was not allowed to post my logs from AdwCleaner or Junkware Removal Tool due to new members not being able to submit messages with emails or external links. Furthermore, I was unable to download Security Check by Screen 317 because of "insufficient permissions" The attempts repeatedly failed.

I do have the logs of AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool and will have to send them to you another way

Please run AdwCleaner again and after the scan hit the Delete button. Were you able to run the other two scans?

I did run the malwarebytes and the junkware removal tool, and I posted the results above.  I saw the message that no results were found on this scan of AdwCleaner.

I cannot access securitycheck-.bat, even in safe mode.  When I went to the site on the first link and second link on Firefox, I get this message

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at .

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

When I try the first link on Google Chrome (and for the second, I do access the site but I end up back at the following screen if I actually click on the link to download this), I get this message:

This webpage is not available

ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
Hide details
Google Chrome's connection attempt to screen317 was rejected. The website may be down, or your network may not be properly configured.
Go to http:-
Search on Google

Security Check

Clicking on the Link has the same result.

The re-done logs on Junkware Removal Tool and AdwCleaner produced no new results.

I believe that there is something wrong with the applications, hardware, or software on Firefox or the other Internet browsers. I'm not sure what to do at this point though.

I will also note that when I have run the computer in safe mode, I have not encountered this freezing problem (either application hangs, script hangs, or other problems with freezing) on the internet or computer processes.

So it is likely that something within the software or internet processes that is causing the problems.

An earlier scan of my VIPRE anti-virus software picked up 4 Trojans earlier on Thanksgiving. But the freezing has been going on before Thanksgiving.

So, the freezing is still continuing?

Within the last 24 hours, the computer and internet have only frozen about 2 times. I did fix some problems with the performance and I have scanned (and updated the drivers).

So yes, it does still freeze intermittently but it often happens when I am on the computer for prolonged periods of time.

Perhaps, something in the computer or software event logs may reveal the culprit/s at hand in this.

Does it freeze when you're on-line or are you doing other things when that happens?

So far from what I have seen, it freezes when I am online. I have not seen it freeze when I run it in safe mode, even if I am online.

I believe that there is something problematic within my firefox system or settings but I'm not sure what they are. I have removed or disabled problematic plugins and add-ons that may be causing problems.

I usually don't see script warnings so I think that the usual cause of those is not the primary culprit. Also, CTRL+ALT+DEL fails and any attempt to access the start menu and any other program within it is also affected by the internet freezing.

I found this helpful link (at MozillaZine.org see "Firefox Hangs) but I do not think that I have tried all of these solutions.  I have done a number of the measures especially those involving plugins, managing flash, and keeping all drivers and other software up to date.  It's information may provide some information.

Is there some way that I can send event logs of the computer and firefox browser sections to you?  Perhaps this will help illuminate the problem/s at work.

Actually, this does sometimes occurs when I am not online. Just today, the computer froze when I was running an anti-virus scan for a couple of hours. Ctrl alt and del failed to work and I had to manually turn off the computer.

Do you the Windows 7 disk (s) or do you have a recovery on a separate part of your hard drive? Does it freeze when using IE?
