  1. IntelGuy, I will do as you suggested and give any user who has issues with the 3D Test the link you provided. I will not bother with additional tests on this computer, this is a workhorse and sooner or later I will put it out to pasture and saddle up the new Dell setting beside it. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help Phil
  2. Thanks for that feedback, the computer was purchased in 2003 and has been tested with no issues many times. I would have to assume then that the tests have been changed, the display adapter certainly has not. I'll post that information asap and if I run the tests in the future I will bypass that particular test. I am considering now if I can continue to suggest the tests to folks at other forums? I am really interested in trying the test on my new Dell to see what happens... Appreciate the time you took. Phil Skelley

  4. Will do as soon as time permits, I will say I have run dozens of tests on this computer during the last couple of years with no such issues, and my computer (s) are all in tiptop shape. Get back with you as soon as possible. Thanks
  5. Hi IntelGuy, Do you have a solution for this yet? http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showuser=24733 I just ran into it this am when I posted for a member at Safer Networking to run the diagnostic as I do with many folks, but will stop until this is resolved. When I noticed the website changed and decided to update my directions, to do so I tought I would scan one of my computers. I run into the issues at the 3D Performance Test. MSN Explorer and Internet Explorer, with both browsers I get a message that a problem has been encountered and the browser must shut down. The file being s

  9. I will try to work with you a little, but these issues are not malware which is what I do. You would probably be better off to post here: http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showforum=3 There are talented folks there who deal with the kind of issues you describe, but let's look here first. error message >>> post the message word for word exactly as you see it, that is the only way I can try to research it.

  12. Please do not quote my instructions, a waste of space. I have learned from many years of removing malware, that nothing is common. This topic is closed.

  13. After you copy/paste the information from the code box into the notepad, click on File then Save As. Change the Save in box at the top to "Desktop" using the drop down menu. Change the File Name to CFScript then click on Save. A Notepad nameed CFScript is now on the Desktop, follow the rest of the directions.
  14. Welcome to PCPitStop, please be aware that all advice given is taken at your own risk. Sorry for the wait, the logs are many, and the volunteers are few. When you reply, please use the "Add Reply" button, not the Quote or New Topic buttons. If you still need help let me say I am at a bit of a loss since I have not seen the HJT log before you started running removal tools so I don't know if something was removed by mistake or not. Do you still have the logs from the scans? If not, show me a new MBAM scan: Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your Desktop http://www.besttechie.ne
