What a mess I've created on my PC

13 years ago

It started out with trying to download Java JRE and Java applet, (so I could play some of the games that I had put on my computer, ie, zigsaw puzzle.) Well of course I ran into all kinds of trouble, I went to search after search help sites but only learned that there was a problem with Java and Vista Firefox. I tried to delete all files of any and all Java files (Revo Unistaller) so I could reinstall Java.(Never got that done, everywhere I look I still find them Java files in Program files, start menu.

To make a long story short as I can:

I crashed Firefox, lost the whole thing. Thanks to RC I had kept IE as she suggested) and I reinstalled FF. Of course I had to redo all my settings.

Finally got that done, but now I've lost the letters in Incredimail. The heading is there but the body of the email won't open and all previous mail is gone. I've spent hours and hours trying to follow directions on the Incredimail help site and web sites like Howto.com to recover ...never had any luck. I read the recent post on here where someone lost their emails but didn't get any where there.

I could go on and on, but that's the gist of it.

Any and all help will be very much appreciated.

I have HP, 64, Vista FF

thanks

    OK zep, I thank you for your time and effort. If I can get the hijackthis log file in a place that I can copy it, will it be ok if I post it for you to look at? I have gotten the update for hijackthis, 2.0.4, so maybe I can get better results.

    Again, thank you so much.

    I moved Daff's last fall...have been blooming now for a week vs. the mother clump who hasn't yet but should start at least by this weekend. I've made those same type of mistakes and ALMOST did it again a few weeks ago...was about to plant something on top of the newly fall planted Hosta (my 1st)!! If my wintersown Bleeding Heart ever sprout, I planned to plant out behind the Hosta so I'm soooooo glad marking was mentioned in this thread! I'll be doing just that to prevent doing damage next year :D Vera

    "IMO physically turning mulch exposes me to more mold spores than I am interested in inhaling, although I admire people that have the fortitude to do it." Just imagine bathing in the pollution on the rush hour highway, most people around here don't know compost, but I'm sure they would all rather roll in the leaves than breath that exhaust. Look in some of your processes food, research the hard to pronounce ingredients. There's a lot of more concerning things in the world than turning your compost, which I would rank up to one of the most healthiest activities you could probably do today. If you would of seen me the other day, mixing perlite/peat to make my seed starter... I looked like Montana, perlite dust all in my nose. The peat, sticking to my facial hair, making me look like a damn gorilla! I'm sure inhaling that isn't to great neither. I'm normally extremely anal about that kind of stuff, but i couldn't find a mask, and quite frankly just needed to get it done. But i could tell you, that burning in your throat and nose when inhaling perlite/peat dust, you don't get any of that from turning compost or digging in a few leaves.

    I don't see any Malware / virus. But we are only looking at a hijackthis log from Safe Mode, and Malwarebytes only ran for 14 Mins? I see an out of date computer. adobe 7! Java 1.5! IE6! Then McAfee is that up to date? For starters I would go into your add/remove programs list and remove Adobe. We can get you another reader later. Then remove all versions of Java from the add / remove programs. The only version there should be Version 6 u_18. Remove all others. Then install IE7, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9AE91EBE-3385-447C-8A30-081805B2F90B&displaylang=en You said yourself your getting Internet Explorer is not responding errors Then I would download Avast 5.0, to the desktop, don't install it yet. http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download Now I would run the McAfee removal tool, http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100507 When that finishes double click the Avast that you downloaded before and install it AND SCAN WITH IT TOO. After we can remove some 04 entries in hijackthis log. Unnecessary Start ups. Up date Java , Get a reader program for pdf files. Run some cleaners, ccleaner ect. Good luck you have a lot to do. Don't surf The Internet in Safe Mode no Virus protection in that mode....Just go to links provided and get Avast installed after McAfee is removed.

    It might not even be the tapes fault. It might just be that you didn't break the seal between the tape and the wall before pulling the tape. If the tape has been on for so long and you don't break that seal, you could end up pulling drywall paper. You should score that line between the trim and the wall before pulling the tape with a sharp putty knife or razor knife. As for the touching up, washable paints are hard to touch up just because they are shiny. The more time passes, the less shiny the paint becomes so when you slap up some fresh shiny paint the sheen doesn't really match. Also, you need to apply at least two coats over the patches to give them a chance to touch up. I would also use a roller and feather out the edges of your touch ups by lifting the roller off the surface as you roll away from the area. Don't mess around with spot priming with an actual primer. I would just do three coats using the actual paint. It still may not look perfect though because it's been a year.

    You also have 2 Anti virus programs running, Not Recommended. Did you pay for ESET NOD32 Antivirus and is it up to date? Running more then 1 Anti virus can cause all sorts of issues.

    My guess is that someone uninstalled Eset nod32 Anti virus, through the add / remove programs list, that's why we don't see it there or running in an 04 entry. So there is left over files running.

    The primary focus in getting rid of the 1723 error is to first find out whether it is a Java or Windows Installer error.

    I don't think it was ever determined. The fact that we still saw Java in the log leaves me to believe there's still Java files on the pc for whatever reason, and that alone will cause the 1723 error as described on the Java site.

    The next thing maybe is to run the windows installer clean up utility, that was mentioned above we never got that far. That will clean up failed installs or it claims to anyway.

    More importantly once I saw the log there are several more problematic issues more serious then Java that need addressed first. Namely running the 64Bit AVG remover tool, then running the Nod23 Anti Virus tool. Then there's a beta version of Firefox 4.0 running.

    Then there is this issue as reported by user then the whole computer starts flashing on and off???????

    If you're going to use the windows installer approach use the windows installer clean up utility first, there's a good chance it may resolve it. But it still leaves a PC in a mess, with a lot of work to do.

    My thoughts only on the matter. It's the approach I'd take.

    For this user a full recovery maybe the best idea.

    Hello again, sorry I had to be away. I have read the postings that have been made since I was her last, and some I understand and some I don't.

    So what should I do first?, try to do the windows installer clean up utility as Zep says or do a Windows installer download through the connecton that Mikie posted?

    How do I correct the Fire Fox Beta issue?

    Sounds pretty scary to me when a "full recovery" is mentioned as may be the best idea.

    Right now I will go and do the ESET-Nod32 uninstall as per the link that zep posted above.

    Do the ESET first. Then run the AVG remover tool in link below.

    See where it says 64bit, download that and run it. See link.

    Look in the programs file folder for Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta Right click the folder and choose delete. Careful don't delete the current version 3.6.10.

    Let us know how that all goes. We can try the windows installer clean- up utility last.

    Zep, I did the ESET thing, on the #1 instruction I could not find any Eset, or any Nod files in the program files.

    So I tried #2 instruction and it turned into some foreign language (German, Dutch?) but I got through it best I could and did the reboot. How can I tell is the Eset Nod32 is gone?

    If it's not gone will the Revo uninstaller take care of it?

    ok will get back with you tomorrow...

    Found no more EsetNod32 anywhere, looked in revo but nothing there.

    I got the AVG removal done

    I found the Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta file in the Program file, right clicked on it , (careful to make sure it was the Beta version) and deleted it.

    But then the Icon on my desktop would not open Firefox, I couldn't figure out what else to do so I went into the deleted folder and found the delete I had just done and restore it. No problem then, Firefox started right up.

    I checked the Firefox version that I am using now and it is the 3.6.10. So I need to know how to make a desktop Icon from this 3.6.10 version so that I can then delete the Beta version.

    I'll wait for further instructions.....Thanks

    While the Windows Installer Cleanup utility was found to a be a very useful tool by many, as it resolved installation problems, it was also recently found to damage some other components of the Windows operating system, installed on the computer.

    Because of this reason, Microsoft has removed the Windows Installer Cleanup utility from its Download Center!

    Run JavaRa again, double check for Java folders again delete if found. Try installing Java.

    A number of people have asked me how to enable the old Run dialog that existed on every other version of Windows until Vista, and is still gone in Windows 7. One of the nice features of the old Run dialog was that it saved the history of what you had typed in.

    I don't see a problem with that version.

    So there's no confusion delete all these Icons that look like the one below from the desktop, right click them and delete them if there.

    {{gwi:1496095}}

    Then
    Do you have Ccleaner installed? If so open ccleaner, to the left click Registry, the blue block looking thing now scan for issues don't fix them. Tell me how many are found.

    Had none of those icons on my desktop

    Ccleaner--did the Registry scan and I can't tell you how many there is, could be hundreds. To give you an indication, the little slide up and down bar on the side of window is very tiny.

    The ones with the most listed are these:

    Missing shared DLL
    Unused file exte
    ActiveX/com issue
    installer reference
    obsolete software

    there are others, but these are the bulk of the results.

  • zep516

    Fix the selected issues, when prompted save it, then click fix all issues.

    Then open Cleaner again this time use the analyze let it run then click run cleaner, hit the analyzer tab again let it run, then hit run cleaner keep doing this until "0" BYTES is shown.

    Then

    Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

    Download TFC by OldTimer click Here to your desktop. Click the Save file tab, save it to the desktop. Then double click it to run it.

    Double-clickTFC.exe to run it.

    Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator

    TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin

    * Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
    * Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
    * Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.

    Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.

    Then

    Using the link below click it, choose the Save file

    Save it to the desktop, once it downloads look for the Icon, looks like the one above that I posted, double click and see what happens.

    Going to work back later. When you click on the link below a box will open save that file to the desktop, then go look for it and double click it.

    Zep have y'all tried this and do the offline installation package as listed in option 2?
    Error 1723. There is a problem with this Windows installer package.
    What is the offline method for downloading and installing Java for a Windows computer?
    I have seen a few responses that using that offline method has worked. Of course do not install any of the extra 3rd party junk, Might even try doing the actual install part in safe mode once it has been downloaded as per the directions.

    also I think the poster GreatCapuchin on this link may have the right idea in doing a registry edit for this.

    RC, yes we tried the offline download method. We have done a lot of other adjustments since then, including deleting (fixing) a ton of stuff out of the Ccleaner registry, so it may be effective now.

    Not sure of course what Zep will want to do with the GreatCapuchin info that you pointed out. It makes as much sense as anything else I have seen and over the last week I have seen a ton of it.

    I saw that link Great Caption, but wanted to hold off. I don't see a clear set of instructions to navigate the registry and instruct the user unless I read it wrong.

    If I had the problem I'd open each key:
    HKEY CLASS ROOT
    HKEY CURRENT USER
    HKEY USERS
    KHEY CONFIG

    Then click Software look for Java and remove key.

    I can't give those instructions because I have never done it.

    Unless you see a clear set of instructions there raven.
    Let me look a little closer tomorrow at it.

    Zep I am not sure but in this link it discusses the registry keys which I think (repeat think) would be the same ones involved for this problem. I hear ya because I have not done it either and I am not a big fan of messing with the registry either.
    After uninstalling Java,

    I was actually curious if the offline method had been tried using safe mode and if that made any difference at all.

  • zep516
    13 years ago
    last modified: 8 years ago

    You could try installing java in Safe Mode, problem with that is the Windows Installer is not available in safe mode, so then you would most likely get yet anther windows installer error, and really start to get side tracked.

    That being said at this point anything is worth a try!

    I saw the link. It does not mention the fix is meant for Vista, and talks about specific versions 1.4, 1.3. And it goes on to say or talk about being able to see the Java Icon in the control panel. I had this user check for that and from what lotodog said "there is no Java Icon in the controlpanel" , that leaves me to believe that java is uninstalled. I think it's still a windows registry issue though, just don't know where.

    I have seen the issue before not the same error but a situation where Java could not be installed on my home forum, I did not work the topic but watched it the final thing was a reinstall or recovery.

    I think at this time it's best to have lotodig seek outside help. Someone that can actually see the computer and make a better determination on how to proceed.

    For java install .. seems like lots of work.

    Think if I was in your shoes I might run check disk scan, to make sure some date or filename hasnt gone hay-wire,,... I'd run SFC..... then probably would do an search ..advanced, hidden & system files on my drive letter for Java .. then follow with a search for Sun.

    Kinda verify what you're deleting by looking in the folders first but but start deleting Java and Sun folders.

    Even after most uninstalls there still left overs stuff ... a quick search here in vista;
    "C:\Users\mike\AppData\LocalLow\Sun"
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java
    C:\Program Files\Java
    C:\Program Data\Sun
    plus a few java files in windows\system32

    I probably look thru the registry too, carefully after letting ccleaner have a go.

    Then if it doesnt install.. wait till tomorrow to think about it.

    Hello again nice people, I have a question.

    Since Zep has led me through so many steps and has helped me clean up some of the junk on my computer my question is this.

    What will the results be if I can find no way to get Java downloaded? Is it absolutely necessary that Java be on the computer for things to work right. I see no results from NOT having it, other than not being to play some games, I play most any game I want without any trouble, most of them very graphic.

    I still need to delete the Firefox Beta version and keep the right version, but I've got to straightened out the shortcut Icons on my desktop, they're both intertwined.

    Other than that I don't seem to be having any problems. I don't know if there is something else on the Hijack list that needs to be addressed, Zep didn't say so I assume that there is not.

    I did get the problem with Incredimail straightened out. That also was a register error.

    After today I am headed for hopefully a wonderful trip to Yellowstone National Park. I will check on this thread as soon as I get back to see what you think about leaving well enough alone.
