Looks like you have some registry keys missing, and so things are not working correctly.

The best thing to do is a repair install

This will allow windows to be reinstalled while keeping all your programs and settings :wink:

Cant delete cuz cant find..I have tryed to totally wipe disk and do clean install but that doesn't work..My dvd player somehow is part of whatever this is so burning something is out of the question...Have 4 usb drives that not suppose to be there but are..Can you answer this for me am i suppose to be considered a stand alone workstation??? All this stuff with the ip addresses are driving me crazy knowone from my internet provider or netgear my router can explain..

When your scan shows any thing thats says "Generic" in it, it is 90% of the time a false positive.

The fact that you did a fresh install and things are still working odd makes me wonder if it is a hardware problem.

Have you done a bad sector check on the hard drive and tested the memory yet?

Shane

Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on June 27, 2012, 11:16:38 PM
It is suppose to be just the 1 entry.

That site makes a list of known bad sites, you put them into your host file to keep your system from going to them.

I never do that though. Every single connection your system makes has to loop through that file. It WILL slow the internet down on the system because of those lookups. :wink:

Shane

Then where or why would I have things like that...Now I am back to showing my normal server.. Should I delete those usb hard drives that are showing...I guess Ill just keep deleting files that don't belong but most of them just keep coming back..Should I have all the user files and registry keys...Again Thank-You...

these drives might say generic but they are there.....This is also the first time in I dont know how long when I do a command prompt for diskpart that it says my computer name usually says minint or something close and instead of saying system32 it says x:\system..

Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on June 29, 2012, 10:41:17 AM
I myself just use the free version of Avast antivirus.

Make sure your behind a router and you dont really need a software firewall.

And just make sure to keep java and flash up to date as that is how a lot of viruses from infected sites get in.

Other than that just be careful deleting things out of the registry as it will break Windows :wink:

So log on with other and everything I try to do says cannot find path make sure spelled correctly..Did use malware bytes and got 12 trojans avast found 2 but still not working did safemode andtryed a restore to no avail... When it boots comes to a screen that says hold down space bar and hit anyother key to load previous mbr but did not seem to work. Screen goes by so fast did not get all detail.. But again there is something wrong and what ever it is it is very nasty...

Routers have a reset button on the back of them :wink:

Looks like something really hosed the machine. Either hardware, a virus, or you deleted something on accident. Anyway a reinstall is a good idea, as long as all the hardware is good of course.

I have done a "clean" install twice since my last post.. Before this one tryed to wipe disk with kill disk.. It showed One partition that held my system another with operating system #2 and an unallocated unactive partition that could not be deleted.. So before hooking up to internet I ran your program system info... Wondering how it looks to you.. Remember no internet install with  hp factory disk.. Yours was the first program I ran.... Any ideas.. This is getting really old any help would be much appreciated....

When you used their restore disks it put everything back to the way it was when it came from the store.

I hate the default installs. Was hoping you had a normal install disk and would install fresh without all their crap lol.

What problems are you still having after the restore?

Shane

Well had to do another instal... Went to reboot got the old blue screen...So I tryed all I knew (wich is very limited).. But did find that bios is running free dos7.5 did not think that normal...Also those drives that were showing up as usb hard drives generic now showing as floppy that could not be accessed by kill disk when trying to wipe...Im using my laptop that is having same issues.. Fresh install from a oem windows disk here is the log from your system info on this ine
Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on July 09, 2012, 10:49:10 AM
Fresh reinstalls shouldn't be giving you trouble unless you have something wrong with the hardware.

The bios couldn't be running free dos, I think you might mean something else. :wink:

Also remember that the extra drive letters are normal. You have a card reader install on the system, each slot will get a drive letter. This is normal. :wink:

Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on July 11, 2012, 10:42:41 AM
So you went into a folder on the C:\ drive that was labeled "..."

When you went into it it had everything on C: listed again but you cant access anything.

Your right, that shouldnt be there. A program had to of made that. It is a folder with a symbiotic link back to the C:\ drive.

You can use this to view if there are any setup for that folder

I could not get program to work.. System does that... But I ran another program I have that will show you the same... I think.. I have been trying to get this question answered for months what do these junction type files mean....Did you get a chance to look at the log file I sent..Again... THANK-YOU........
Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on July 11, 2012, 09:31:43 PM
A junction is a link.

So a folder can be pointed to a different path.

Where this helps would be programs that try to access the old paths say to the profile paths.

So a program tries to go to C:\Documents and Settings. On XP this is fine but In Vista and 7 it is in a new area. So by having a junction (Windows has this one by default) and point it to the new path the old program will still work fine :-)

C:\\Documents and Settings
Type is JUNCTION
Final Destination:
C:\Users

The file you attached shows all normal junction points.

It didnt list the ... folder on the C: drive.

Some installed program has to of created it. Windows doesn't create that one by default.

Thanks doesnt make sence to me but... T he program you wanted me to run I cant it goes threw all the moitions and then flasshes awaay...So did some checking the info I saw was to use net freame work or visual..Well could not get in could not uninstal could  not install ran a cmd said fatal error no inputs anyway.. Did a little more checking and the error that comes up when you try to open something on that drive is the program looking for unavailible either on a network or platform not availible.. The files say 0 bytes...So  did a search for modems came up with 2 folders that  have all pictures tryed to open in note pad but just jumble.. I sent an attachment with some of those files.. Then I unplugged and disconnected my router and ran a dns scan on my local ip 127.0.0.1 threw 127.0.0.255 and got 16 diffrent ping replies....Thought that not good....I did manage to get in my router for a few before I got shut down and it shows in the internal settings an ip for router as 10.93.21.45.. But when checked not the right one..now when I do ipconfig shows my ip as 192.168.0.10 I get diffrent when I go to whats my ip or any site....My computer is now Host ip 92.242.144.50 also show as workstation and terminal server...[email]Sorry for the way attachment is but only way it would go.. Sent a reply cant get it to load
Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on July 12, 2012, 10:33:42 AM
The pictures you sent are normal. They are added by the manufacture.

And your IP is fine.

Your modem/Router has the internet IP and it gives your computer a local IP.

A router takes the one internet connection and routes it to multiple devices. So it hands out its own local IP like 192.168.

If you need to host anything on a computer you just setup port forwarding rules

With a unplugged and disconnected router that I still cant get in With the program you suggested 16 pings returns with 0 packet loss ip range 127.0.0.1-255 I know local....shouldnt happen I loked at some log files here is a copy... I asked this question before why am I a workstation-stand a lone server..

I really wish it was that easy.. Just got home fired it up...I didnt put a password for me yet but low and be hold I couldnt get into my system without one....Getting the password reset I discovered that I also have listed as a user is $Homegroupusers...Did  you have a chance to look at those system logs of warnings programs not opening or opening users keeping register keys open...All the holes in my security...That if I knew how to fix I would the one about being able to access my system from internet worries as do most of the others...I also have a laptop that is less then a year old that will not load windows correctly faught this same fight with it till I could not get it to work any more.. So I got this one same problems...I find some interesting software that I know did not come with windows some of it works with 95 98 ME XP but not Vista or 7... Also cant use software that loads from shell just flshs away...I have 3  2005 microsoft visul c ++ one is 64 bit other 2 not  sure have microsoft framework.net clent profile 2 of them  3 2008 and 2  2010.. The ones that really make me wonder are the 2  MSXmL SP2.. I thought those were for XP or at least service pack 2..Ialso found 7 HP.. programs that were listed as not correctly installed 4 of them are for HP touch smart I dont have that.. Alot of what is in those logs are about touch smart programs and 2 of the other are the same program they were ok earlier....Now I know that I have problems with the voices......But something is going on.. I know very little about computers but I do know what is going on with mine when things are diffrent.. This plyredy runtime pc 2 other programs that worry me... Maybe I think like I do is because whaen all this started happening and know one would listen I had to check some other avenues we will say.. And all these orograms that are microsoft that I just said I had Ive heard stories of coding networking aquirying liceces... they all seem to fit with this whole beleaf in this zombie network...I just want it gone....

Some of the things you see are normal for a Windows install, other things are not.

What you REALLY need to do is not do a factory reinstall, but a fresh Windows only install.

You will need to get a copy of the Windows install of the net, but then you will have a clean fresh install of Windows. No extra programs that come preinstalled on the factory restore.

It has to be the preinstalled software from the manufacture that you are seeing these changes. I NEVER use the factory installs. In fact when my customers get a store bought machine the first thing I do is format it and install Windows fresh. :wink:

Title: Re: virtual
Post by: Shane on July 13, 2012, 06:00:30 PM
When you reinstall you will need the drivers for the hardware.

Download the network card drivers fo rit first, save them to a thumb drive.

Then when you boot off the Windows cd it will start the setup. When you get to where it shows the hard drive I want you to delete all the partitions. So when done you will just have one large partition.

Then install Windows on there. When done load the network card drivers and you can get on the net and use Windows updates to pull the rest. Any it misses you can get from the mfg website. :wink:

Wow first time I have never seen a bios update for store bought computers lol

They do have a hardware tester

Might be a good idea just to make sure the hardware is good.

I downloaded it as soon as I could see the cd player does not want to cooperate... I delt with hp a couple times.. I have heard a story or two that  it is a good point to latch on toooo...As soon as I did a reload i down loaded it and hearing you saying maybe that I have used it memory ck disk everything I can think of....There are a couple more little quirks... My system time and actual time do not match.. Windows cant correct...My screen jumps maybe a third of the way.. Annoying when trying to read I bounce it back but probly doesnt matter....On a security log said my guest account had unlimited access may be a risk.. Use to have a picture for my account now on log in page there is just a frame a blank frame use to show administrater with pic and guest with pick all were passwordrd for the good that does... When this happened earlier My  password was diffrent I can be sure of that cuz didnt have one......Goodd thing im pretty good at picking a lock...Now your going to really think I lost it... But I have a couple very helpful programs that either totally dissapair or you just cant find them..

After hearing of so many odd problems, and knowing that you did fresh installs and things are still going nuts.

To put it simply a system should and wont act this way after a fresh install unless the hardware is bad.

I truly believe you have bad hardware, and I really think you should get the system replaced while you still can.  :wink:

When it comes to bad hardware there is nothing you can do to make it better except replace the bad hardware.

I know you think hardware.. Tryed to do a instal off just windows not work did disk wipe and tryed.. nope tryed factory nope keep getting redirected.. so did some checking... Remember told you my bios  was running freedos 7.1.. Now with disk wiped it shows not only bios extentions but name of system is freedos 7.1 and do you have any ideas suggestions people to talk with

Freedos isnt a bios but just an old school OS before Windows.

Quote
FreeDOS is a free DOS-compatible operating system that can be used to play games, run legacy software, or support embedded systems. FreeDOS is basically like the old MS-DOS, but better! For example, unlike MS-DOS, FreeDOS lets you access FAT32 file systems and use large disk support (LBA).

http://www.freedos.org/

A lot of companies use it when they need to run things in dos out side of Windows. So I can see HP having that on the system in order for you to run their tools outside of Windows. But again, it wont be part of the bios. Most likely installed on the HP partition on the drive.

If your interested..Tryed to get a copy but wouldnt happen..While in windows it showed my disk.. But when I tryed to wipe disk and check system info on diffrent programs it showed as a clone..Operating system showed as freedos 7.15.. Even in windows when you went to add or remove programs said no programs installed.. My C drive showed up as one of the 4 usb hard drives...It got to the point that could not load the windows disk the way I wanted.. The factory disc would not load at all they would boot to the repair recovery screen. Then say this computer does not support that option...I think this will be more prevlent then what yu think..I hope some time soon I can find some one or someway to help prevent it from happening again and how to detecr and keep out...Thank-You for your time and knowledge...

With out me being able to see it myself it makes it hard on what to have you try next.

The problems you described are very odd and the first time I have heard of them. They sound like hardware errors. But you said getting it replaced isnt doable.

I know I was just saying if you were interested.. Been running tests for about 2 hours with hp tek people... No problems but still cant load there factery disks or now even oem windows....I used a linx program and wiped disk used ultimate boot there disk wipe then formatted it with there program then in the repair shell used diskpart and formatted and and made active... windows disk still says cant load windws wrong format... hp disk load to a false program that says wrong info.. Again Thank-You just thought for your own knowledge you might want to know....Getting closer to where someone will have to beleive that Im having these problems and working off the script wont do it....Im lost in the whole commands and code of all the things I have lost.... I miss my mind the most.. What I read seems to indicate that is what it will take to get it gone...Thanks again

I got your pics.

The D: drive looks like it is the factory Restore disk and not a straight Windows setup disk.

I think i have an idea of what is going on... screenshot will show that I cannot untick the sharing settings.. it says allow other users to control that.. my internet providers cant help but say its not right can you point me in right direction...

That is normal. It is the same way on my machine as well :wink:

That only becomes enabled when someone uses the internet connection sharing in Windows (Which you normally never need or use)
