In my computer.... all of a sudden the "search results" that you use to search for something in your computer keeps poping up and it opens 47+ windows. Have not been able to stop it, and un able to do anything because it opens a new one with every click!

Do you have one installed?

Please run HiJackThis.exe file, do a scan, Place checks next to the below entries in the code and close all browser and other windows except for HijackThis, and click "Fix Checked".

After completion do another scan (new) and send my the log!


your not going to beleive this! I decided to do a HP (F10) system restore! Guess what! as it was begining to start after the restore.... I get a message......System Configuration Error Code purple. Please call HP Customer Care warrenty dept. (the you are screwed) message.

So i called them for them to inform me that the HP "Tattoe" is bad.... Equil to the BIOS chip to say in laymans terms. Its their FU Chip, spend your money message...

Yes I am Quite PO'ed. SO ofcorse, its OUT OF WARRENTEE. SO I have to bust out the bucks to buy a new OS. SO at the end of our chat session, They asked if I was thinking of purchasing a NEW SYSTEM, so to vent my frustrations, I told them YES! BUT NOT A HP! Disconnect Chat session!

So here I sit. Waiting to decided, what to do.... Bust out the OLD faithfull, plug it and and My Daughter is off to play World of Warcrack!

Thanks for the replies!



Have you got one of those keyboards with buttons like pause, refresh, standby search etc...

I had one and for some reasonn whenever it was plugged in, linux kept refreshing firefox.

Plugged in a standard one and it worked fine

And you dont need a new whole new OS necesarially. All windows CDs are the same. The thing that you actually pay for is the licence + prouct key.

Borrow an xp cd of the same edition + service pack off someone. If its a retail version, enter the product key on the sticker on the side of your pc, when it prompts you. If its an OEM version, use a program called nlite to change the product key to yours, then burn a new windows cd
