Hi
Shortly after turning my computer on the taskbar turns grey, I also seem to keep loosing my sound, I can get around the sound problem for short periods of time by re starting it in services but this doesn't last.

I have used HiJackThis and the log is as follows

Please help, I'm getting desperate!!!:(

First before we do anything please put HJT into its own folder. I looked over your log and i didn't see anything malicious. It's seems that this is caused by some sort of confict between Itunes and Windows NT. Try going to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services and making sure "Windows Audio" is running. And is it just the taskbar that turns grey or is it the entire desktop as well?

Hi Thanks for your reply,
Not sure what you meant by putting HJT in it's own folder, I've made sure everything re HJT on the Desk Top is in a folder?? - Sorry, dont' mean to appear thick.

I've been using Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services to reconnect the Audio but it doesn't stay connected.

It's the taskbar, and when I open folders the 'bars' in those are grey, usually blue.

Thanks again
Vanessa

The folder thing is this. C:\Documents and Settings\Family\Desktop\HiJackThis_v2.exe is where HJT is right now which is on the desktop right? but i want u to make a new folder by right clicking and then going to new>folder. Then click and drag HJT into that folder. Anyways I've been looking around for more info on this and most people computers worked after starting up that service again. Its looks like Itunes is what starts all of this though. There was only one other reason that i could find for the taskbar turning grey and that was a spike in svchost.exe CPU usage. Try the following Open task Manager click on the processes tab and see how much CPU svchost.exe is using. If it is high try ending it and restarting it. If it isn't then try ending all itunes processes and see if it will work.

svchost.exe shows twice in Task Manager CPU for first in the list 3,432k and second in the list 13,772k - not sure what is high/low.

Re iTunes do you reckon uninstalling iTunes would sort the problem?
Thanks

From what i have been researching yes. Every example of this i could find the user said that they had Itunes for NT, but then again starting the service worked in alll the examples i could find, but not in yours. What i would do is uninstall it and see if that clears things up if not reinstall it and we'll go from there.

anchom, this thread is nearly 3 years old. You need to create your OWN new thread rather than hijack an unsolved thread. Begin your own thread, state all your problems, give pertinent info...operating system, anti-virus program, steps you have taken in an attempt to correct the problems and somebody will offer to help.
