HELP! Video dissolving and I am at my wits end


Recommended Posts

There is a file in the %temp% process that will not delete. It insists that another program is using it, yet there are 0kb in the file. Could that be something being used by malware or something else?

 

Hi you could try this program for this prob:

Hope this helps.....

 

Unlocker did the trick- that file is gone! THANKS!

Does anyone have any ideas at all?

 

Should I switch to another forum?

 

I have scanned with every single malware scanner known to computers just about and nothing is showing up. This is clearly a conflict with the video driver.

 

I have deinstalled and installed every version of the video driver that I can find and they are all doing the same thing.

 

Could one of the MS updates have lauched this problem? I never had a problem until a few weeks ago and the only changes made were the security suite from CAssoc. and MS updates.

 

I have removed the security suite and even restored to BEFORE the installation of it, and nothing changed. The video driver is still messed up.

Have you tried to remove the video card,then boot up,turn the computer off then reinstall the card and the driver? I had a simular problem and that fixed it for me,it may work and it may not,but worth a try :geezer:

That is a good idea. I will try that next. Sometimes cellphones do the same thing and taking out the Sim Card and the battery will reset it all- I forgot about that. :clap:

 

Thanks! :)

 

I will try almost ANYTHING to get this straightened out! :pullhair:

I thought that the CA firewall or anti spam program was causing it so I took them out.

Please tell me you replaced this with someother AS, AV, and Firewall program. Even if they are different ones and not a suite.

 

Another good prevention tool is SpywareBlaster. Enable all protection and check for updates.

IE Privacy Keeper. Can be used for both IE and FF. I set mine to clean when I close the browser.

Also, with Spybot, don't forget to immunize.

I still use spybot, Adaware for spyware (and have scanned and cleaned with a few others lately too).

 

Also, I still have the ETrust Antivirus running as well- I just removed the suite and reinstalled the AV separately.

 

As for firewall- until I get this mess straightened up, I am not putting in another firewall just yet.

 

However, I might try Zone Alarm or something, just not sure yet.

 

And I did immunize with Spybot too already not too long ago.

 

The only thing I ditched was the Firewall, antispam and anti spyware from CA that came together in the suite that I had installed before the problems started.
