Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

You may have to start your pc in safe mode(press F8 during loading) and run your av/as from there. You could use system restore but I would do that as a last resort.

We get no error message, if you double click on an icon nothing happens and if you right click where it should say 'open' it says open archive.

We are running avg free edition

And we can't get into system restore either.

Hi Madmum

I don't know if this might help but give it a try

open your TASK MANAGER (alt+ctrl+delete) hold down alt + ctrl while pressing the delete button.

click on the APPLICATIONS and see if any program is running, if so click on the END TASK to terminate any program your not sure of.
Before doing so write down the name of the program so you can delete from your system later, please only end one task at a time checking your system each time to see which program caused the problem.

If there is no program running or after ending all programs running the problem this still there, open your TASK MANAGER again and click on the PROCESSES and under the CPU you'll see every program that is running DO NOT END any program from this just write down every program and post the results in the reply post for me or other people to check. All programs running will look like 01 or over any looking like 00 are not running so don't write them down.

While in your TASK MANAGER click on NEW TASK and see if you can open your folders though the BROWSER.

GO LUCK
wizliz.

since ad-aware is the problem
uninstall it
let the program run
get microsoft anti-spyware FROM MICROSOFT'S SITE
install ms anti-spyware and be happy

some people are tempted to use p2p to download stuff you can download off of the internet that wouldn't be infested with viruses...

stupid roommate downloaded a wmv porn file off of limewire.
IT WAS A VIRUS. the virus slowly ate up all my disk space so you couldn't run a scan and would kill virus scans when you would run them.

no more limewire on my machine anymore, and my friend now has his own machine he can infect that i'll clean every once in awhile.

Thanx for all your help, but, there is nothing running in task manager and there were no programmes in processes with 01 on them. I can't get into ad aware to uninstall it.

And ive just been onto microsoft site and it says I need to validate it but when I come to download it, surprise surprise I can't open that either.

Hi madmum

Go back into you task manager and click on processes again look for the aware program and right click on it you will have a choice to END PROCESS click and end it, I didn't mean the programs that had just 01 under the CPU any 2 digit numer other than 00 means it's running except SYSTEM IDLE PROCESS it should read something like this = 76. warning only delete the aware file.did you try opening the browser in your NEW TASK and try deleting it from there. Remember if you can end task go straight to you ADD/REMOVE file in your CONTROL PANAL and remove it COMPLETLY.


GO LUCK
wizliz

p.s. if that doesn't work I might have another idea.

The only thing with numbers is system idle which is going between 97 and 99. I can't see ad aware on the process list. Tried the new task thing and it says that ad aware needs to be opened with another file and gives me the option of going online to find a programme to run with. And I can get into control panel but I can't get into add/remove programmes.

Hi madmum

Is it possible to click on your START on the bottom left hand corner
if so click and open SEARCH

click on ALL FILES AND FOLDERS

type in the name of the problem folder and if it appears try deleting it.

If not sure of name type aware and continue.

If more than one file, folder or .dll appears delete them one at a time.

If any file can't be deleted please write it down the way it appears and post it in the reply thread


GO LUCK
