  1. Thanks for the help - I appreciate it. However, this is getting to be too much. I'm just going to do wipe everything out and re-format.
  2. MBAM didn't find anything. No pop-ups since. I hope I got out of there just in time. Super Anti Spyware should be a legit app.
  3. The site that popped-up in the first place is detailed here (http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/anti-virus-secure-scanner.com/postid/?p=1308650) =============================== Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.31 Database version: 1586 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 12/31/2008 4:13:16 PM mbam-log-2008-12-31 (16-13-16).txt Scan type: Quick Scan Objects scanned: 44820 Time elapsed: 2 minute(s), 14 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Fil
  4. bump ^^ Just so it doesn't get lost any further in the shuffle.
  5. Earlier, I had a strange pop-up about some bizarre anti-virus scanner.... didn't look especially legit. I've heard its been making the rounds, something called antivirus 2009 or something like that. I hope it didn't infect my PC, but here's my log. I ran Super Anti Spyware in safe mode prior to running a log. It didn't find anything, fwiw. But I'd still like to know.

    Dust bunnies

    I take pretty good care of my PC - at least from the outside. Today, I opened the case for the 1st time (I've had it for 3 years) and was met with levels of dust I can't remember ever seeing. I got a lot of out with an air duster, including a baseball-sized dust bunny. This system was running way too loud (no wonder) but now it purrs a lot better Any dust bunny horror stories here? Check this out - one guy found a dead cricket caught up in a dust bunny:
  7. as i said when the BIOS is loading, before the XP screen. Someone said its related to the CD ROM?
  8. Nothing in USB ports. No printer. No mouse in use (touchpad) .... OS CD i have.... don't use battery (ac adapter) no changes prior
  9. I am recieving this error message before the BIOS is loaded up: "The Device in the system modular bay cannot be identified. It may not be completely inserted or may have some other problem. Please read and complete the following steps. 1. Press the device completely and firmly into the bay. 2. Press the ESC-key -- wait for the system to power down. 3. Press the power button to retry detecting the device." Any ideas? Dell Inspiron 1100
  10. Why not? I've heard not doing so "gums up" your machine.
  11. I don't think people understand. It does not hang on compress old files... disk cleanup just finishes without compressing the old files it finds. :crash:
  12. Is that any different than Cleanup, crap cleaner, privacy mantra or dust buster? i have all those.....
  13. According to disk cleanup, I have 30,013 KB of old files to compress. However, even after running disk cleanup/defragmenters, nothing happens. I still have all those old files to compress. Is there a way I can "force" those old files to compres? I'm stumped for once.
