Hello --

I have recently been having some 'slow down' issues, as well as receiving some 'error' messages when booting up and/or signing on to the internet. One of the error messages refers to GBTRAY (???)

I also receive another error message box: SYSTEMS SETTINGS PROTECTOR --> 'Systems settings protector has encountered a problem and needs to close.' ERROR SIGNATURE
App Name: TEATIMER.EXE MOD NAME: KERNELL32.DLL

I also have a problem trying to bring up Internet Explorer. When I open IE everything seems to stop
and I am left with an hourglass and can fo nothing. In my system tray I have small green box that when I place my cursor there it says CPU Usage 100%.

From this screen I can do nothing except pull the plug and restart.

I am hoping someone with the 'know how' can check the log below and find any problems I may be dealing with.

Thank you
Anthony

Other than AVG and ZoneAlarm, most of the other programs that you have loading during startup and running in the background don't have to be. :down:

This site will be useful to you in getting that bloated startup list trimmed down. :up:

cybertech & flavallee --- Thank you both for the replies.

cybertech --- I ran HJT again and checked the four items you advised.

I also tried to open SPYBOT, in order to disable it, as you suggested. However, when trying to open, I get an error message stating: SPYBOT -- SEARCH & DESTROY HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO COLSE.

I thiught it would be a good idea to just remove SPYBOT using the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAM feature and then reinstall it later. However, when clicking on REMOVE, I receive the following message: FILE "C:\PROGRAM FILES\SPYBOT-SEARCH & DESTROY\UNINS 000.DAT" DOES NOT EXIST. CANNOT UNINSTALL.

I ran HJT and have encolsed the latest log below.

One other item of note --- I had NORTON SYSTEM WORKS on this computer for about three years. I did not use the antivirus protection provided by them, but I did use some of the other features from time to time, such as SCAN DISK. About the same time my current problems started, I had just deleted all of NORTON. Not sure if this would have anything to do with my current issues, but thought I should mention it.

flavallee --- I believe you helped with this STARTUP situation a long time ago. Am I recalling correctly --- I go to RUN, type in MSCONFIG and click on the STARTUP buton
and then UNCHECK the items from there?

Once again, thank you both for your time and assisstance,
anthony

flavallee --- I believe you helped with this STARTUP situation a long time ago. Am I recalling correctly --- I go to RUN, type in MSCONFIG and click on the STARTUP buton
and then UNCHECK the items from there?


That's negative. You want to click the "Startup" tab. That'll open up the startup list. All entries with a checkmark are automatically loading and running. Unchecking them, applying the change, then restarting will prevent them from doing so.

flavallee --- I must be missing something. Aside from you using the word TAB and me using the word BUTTON, aren't we both saying the exact same thing?

Go to STARTUP and UNCHECK the items in question.
==============================

Any suggestions regarding Internet Explorer? I tried clicking on it again and it just brings up a the IE window and says LOADING, but nothing happens and everything just freezes.

cybertech --

Thank you. I did as you suggested and SPYBOT S&D has been successfully removed.

Any suggestions about what to do with Internet Explorer?

Every time I try to access it I get the IE page, but everything just freezes.

I have included a new HJT log below.

Thanks for taking the time ---

Which Internet Service Provider(ISP) are you using?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I count at least 9 programs running in the background that don't need to be doing so.

Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.
  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on the download to install the newest version.

If Internet explorer is still not working I suggest removing 7.

Post your log again and let us know how you are doing.

flavallee --

I am using AOL 9.0 Security Edition. I was using AOL 9.0 Optimized, but I started having some issues that the AOL tech attributed to some corrupt AOL files. I dumped AOL and reloaded from a disc I had around, but it was a Security Edition and some of the issues I had are still occurring.

As for the 'running programs' --- I hesitate to uncheck any of the programs showing under the STARTUP tab, because I am not 100% sure what is needed and what is not.

cybertech --

Followed your instructions and 'checked' all eight items in HJT that you mentioned. I pasted the new log below.

I also D/L'ed the Java program you directed me to and then removed all the older versions from ADD/REMOVE programs.

Upon rebooting, I received the following message: gbpoll --- unable to run this program:no language files found ---

After a longer than usual wait, I was able to get back online. I tried to access IE, but I received the following ERROR message:
WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER
Cannot open 'file:///C:/Programs% 20 files/AOL % 20 Toolbar/ Welcome html'
Make sure the path of Internet address is correct.

After that, the Windows Internet Explorer page was on the screen and it says CONNECTING, but nothing happens.

Your last suggestion was to remove IE 7. I have the feeling that there is more to that removal than just going to ADD/REMOVE and dumping it. Yes? No?

Thanks for walking me through all this -- The new HJT log is below.

flavallee --

Okay, I went to STARTUP and UNchecked everything there except the few items that appeared to be AVG and ZONEALARM related. Below is the new HJT log.

AOL Fast Start aol.exe

don't need to run the background. Uncheck and disable them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you update Sun Java SE Runtime Environment 1.6.0.0 and uninstall/remove the older versions, make sure to delete the folders from the older versions that may still reside inside the C:\Program Files\Java folder.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since you're using "AOL Hell" for your ISP, it's probably going to haunt you from time to time.

Toolbars are not worth the trouble they sometimes cause. Get rid of them.

cybertech --

Followed your instructions and 'checked' all eight items in HJT that you mentioned. I pasted the new log below.

I also D/L'ed the Java program you directed me to and then removed all the older versions from ADD/REMOVE programs.

Upon rebooting, I received the following message: gbpoll --- unable to run this program:no language files found ---

After a longer than usual wait, I was able to get back online. I tried to access IE, but I received the following ERROR message:
WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER
Cannot open 'file:///C:/Programs% 20 files/AOL % 20 Toolbar/ Welcome html'
Make sure the path of Internet address is correct.

After that, the Windows Internet Explorer page was on the screen and it says CONNECTING, but nothing happens.

Your last suggestion was to remove IE 7. I have the feeling that there is more to that removal than just going to ADD/REMOVE and dumping it. Yes? No?

Thanks for walking me through all this -- The new HJT log is below.
I so dislike AOL :( :(
Nothing I had you remove caused the error message.

I'm using W2K so I can't install IE7 but here is Microsofts comments on how to remove: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/support/default.mspx

cybertech and flavallee --

flavallee -- I have uncehcked those two itms from the STARTUP list. Thank you.
====================================

cybertech -- I am going to follow the instructions you sent for dumping IE 7 and see what happens.

I need the computer for work for through this Sunday, so I may wait until Monday to continue experimenting with things.

I noticed that you both dislike AOL. I have heard some horror stories in the past, but I guess I have been one of the lucky ones, since I have used them for the past 10-12 years and this is the first time I have experienced any problems. However, this ONCE just may be enough.

After uninstalling IE 7 I will let you know how things are progressing.

By the way -- cybertech, you said you are using W2K -- What is that?

I decided to go ahead and REMOVE internet Explorer 7 from the ADD/REMOVE PORGRAMS and the uninstall went without incident. When finished, I was directed to a section to install the IE version for my computer and it said to install IE 7. I did not install it. However, I rebooted and the only ERROR message I received at start up was the one about GBPOLL and the UNABLE TO READ PROGRAM.

I logged on to AOL and checked ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS and there was no sign of IE. However, I still had a shortcut icon for IE on my desktop and when I click on it, IE comes up and works better than ever, with no pauses, delays or error messages..

How is this possible? When I updated to IE 7 did IE 6 remain on my system? If so, why is there no sign of IE on the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAM list?

Don't keep "Automatic Updates" set to automatically download and install critical updates, or else it'll be trying to install Internet Explorer 7.0 again. I take control over what gets downloaded and installed by keeping it turned off and doing a manual scan at the updates site on the second Wednesday of every month. (Microsoft posts new critical updates on the second Tuesday of every month).
