Problems with isamonitor, isamini, etc.

  1. Hey guys,

    This site seemed pretty helpful with problems like mine. I have the "Critical System Error!" Popup coming from the blue/white question mark in my systray on my Toshiba laptop (WinXP). I understand the concept of safe mode, system scans, etc., and after updating the definitions of and running all my software (Trend Micro housecall, Ad Aware, SS&D, Ewido in safe mode w/system files unhidden & a subsequent HJT log), I'm still experiencing problems. I tried to follow all the advice in the stickies, so here I am. I've attached my Ewido and HJT logs accordingly. Please let me know if there's anything else I need to do to expedite this process. Thanks for your help.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It looks like you`ve done a very good job so far. Just one more nasty to get rid of and you`re good to go.

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O21 - SSODL: hydrodictyon - {b166be07-30a4-4d38-b781-44528a630706} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gqagksr.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\gqagksr.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, turn system restore back on and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Howard,

    I followed your instructions precisely and it seems to have ridded me of the problem! I can't thank you enough! I ran HJT after rebooting to a seemingly fixed system and attached the log below. Let me know how it looks, and thanks again for all of your help. :)

    Toshiba Laptop (WinXP) started freezing up last night! Wtf! :(

    Hey guys,

    Followed all the preliminary instructions to the t with Avast/Ewido/Adaware/Spybot/Ccleaner/Mundo/Trend Micro Housecall/etc.. in Safe Mode with system restore off and system files unhidden. My laptop started locking up last night out of nowhere - no new software, doesn't seem to correlate to a specific program.. but it *DOESN'T* happen in safemode. Driver problem? Attached are HJT and Ewido logs. Any ideas? Thanks!
