Scanning Problem - Computer hangs

By angelSLACKER

  1. I'm not sure why or how so I came here for help. My computer hangs in middle of AVG/Ad-Aware scanning so I'm not sure what the problem could be since I can't get to the results... the computer hangs once in a blue moon but it hangs for sure when I scan.

    Please help and thanks...

    Some viruses will attempt to disable antivirus scanners.

    Go HERE and follow as many of the instructions as you can.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)

    I booted into Safe Mode, Turned off System Restore and then scanned while still in safe mode... But it still hanged. And I noticed something, too. It hangs scanning this:

    C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386\driver.cab:\Ixadsui.dll

    sometimes it's not Ixadsui.dll, though...

    I'm sorry if it took me so long to reply... And thanks. ^^

    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

    I was only able to fix the checked items in the HJT scan... I couldn't find the rest.

    Here's the new HJT log. ^^

    Yes, everything's been fine a few days back but now it's started hanging again... Do I do everything again? And how can I prevent this from happening?

    Thanks. ^^

    The good news is your HJT log is clean.

    The bad news is I don`t know what`s causing your problem.

    As far as protection goes. You should consider installing a software firewall, such as the free Zonealarm firewall from HERE.

    It`s a lot better than the Windows firewall and will help to protect you from hackers etc.

    You could try uninstalling AVG and Ad-Aware, then reinstall AVG and see if you still have problems. If not, reinstall Ad-Aware and test again.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is clean.

    I don`t think your problem is caused by a virus/spyware issue.

    Open a new thread in the Windows OS forum.

    Regards Howard :)
