Something is terribly wrong with my computer, again!
I am writing this from Safe Mode with networking on my computer.
The normal mode will not work!
I try to go on normal mode and my computer runs so slow that it freezes!
I can not even do control alt delete on it without it freezing! I think it has something to do with the cpu usage as it will jump to very high percents and the computer will start running incredibly slow, however I do not even run more then 2 or so programs at a time!

I have run anti-virus software,I ran Panda after nothing else worked
and Panda picked up 94 spyware and 1 virus, though it does not say the names.
I also have run spybot search and destroy and it found problems, which I deleted.
Even though I did the two things above, I still can not go into the normal mode!

Please, if anyone can help or has any advice on what to do it would be most appreciated! Thanks for reading and please help!

It would seem that if you can't get rid of the viruses/spyware you may have to format your hard drive to delete them, this is a last resort method, but will definatly cure your problem. If your CPU as at high % it may e caused by overheating maybe, so check that your fans are all working correctly.
Also what are the specs of your machine please.


What do you mean by "specs of your machine"?

Sorry,I am not exactly good with computers, so what do mean by that?

By the way how do I check to see if my fans are working or not? My computer has been making loud humming sounds off and on, but I do not think it is the problem.


spec of your machine refers to what is your machine, how much RAM it has, what gfx card it has, What size hard drive you have, things like that. If you can access it take a printscreen of what it says under, control panel -> system, then hit the printscreen button, save it, and attach it to a post. You could paste it in Word and attach it that way.

Are the fans going really loud while the HDD light (the one that normally flickers on and off) is that solidly on or flickering on and off?


I think this is it
Microsoft Windows Xp
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2
Hewlett-Packard Company
HP Pavilion
Intel(R )
Pentium(R ) 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz
3.00 Ghz, 0.99 GB of RAM

Also, as of right now, the light goes solidly on and off, but when it was running on normal mode I do remember it flickering rapidly a couple times.


The light for the CPU/HDD (central proccessing unit/hard disk drive) relates to data being passed between the two. Your RAM seems to be enough being 1 Gb your proceesor power is plenty at 3GHz, when did you buy this machine? Is it Quite old?


I am pretty sure it is about 2 years old, though I do not think the machine is the problem.

Around a month ago the computer started slowing down and about a week ago it was going very slow, today it just completely froze.


Hey are you still there?

Well, I noticed a couple interesting things. As you already know if I try running my computer in normal mode it completely stops. But what I found out was that the orange flashy light stops and my computer stops humming entirely, like it was turned off.

Another thing I noticed, though I do not know if it especially matters or not, is that on my monitor I cannot even get the hourglass to pop up(you know that hourglass that pops up when something is loading), and that the tasbar seems like it cannot fully load up.


You definatly have a virus oif some sort, try to run AVG free version: http://free.grisoft.com
should get rid of anything, should be able to run in safe mode. Run the antivirus/anti spyware scan to get rid of all the stuff you have on it, then try to boot in normal mode.


No need to, I fixed it myself!
I just had to configure a couple of programs using msconfig, of course I looked up all of the programs before I disabled them, so I think everything is correct!
I also found 2 trojans and deleted them using TrojanHunter, which could have been addind to the problems I was encountering.

Thanks for the help! Hopefully I do not need it again!

By the way I realized my fans are extremely dusty, so I got to be fixing that very soon!

Thanks again for your time!


No problem at all Gomba, this is why Daniweb is made, to help people :)
Good luck with your computer running fine again.
