  1. Your permission buttons are disabled from looks like process explorer. Lets start by rights? Ransomware enabled?
  2. so you are tracking locations?
  3. Why would the host file be of any relevance to software changes?
  4. Can you show me a screenshot of the installed directory?
  5. Just because you are on a 64x machine does not mean you shouldn't use 32x apps. VLC 32x performs better so I'm told than the 64x. I'm happy to go into 32x/64x architecture in software development but only if you are truly interested. I would personally run the 32x if I used VLC. As for the version issue can you show any proof? BTW does the updater auto update or did you tell it to update? There are no schoolboy mistakes here.
  6. You don't need to check the size, it's clearly a bug. One I can't imagine how its produced. The string format changes while implementing the size. Almost as Two methods access the same column.
  7. My money on Win Patrol. Remove it. Running x amount of tools does not mean you are not infected by malware. Not saying you are but you have not trained to analyze a system. Using registry cleaners is highly overrated and can be dangerous. Using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Often. You have no reason to be doing this.
  8. Hello, firstly I cannot stress enough to remove that image as contains emails. Some may be personal. The next is NOTHING other than windows built-in disc cleaner should attempt to remove these folders. Yes, it might take hours. The error is telling you to validate your Outlook Express account configuration. Specifically, if you click on the Tools menu in Outlook Express, then click on the Accounts menu. Finally, it is also possible that your mail server may simply be down. It does happen.
  9. Nicon

    Drive wipe

    Failing that use windirstat to find the culprit folder. https://windirstat.net/
  10. Just looked at its source. It sets the files attributes to normal then creates a new file in its place. No file is ever overwritten. The creator's idea of the Gutmann method(ignoring 20 years old and pointless ) is to use a for loop 35 times using an ineffective buffer. The code is utter garbage.
  11. If you forget to uncheck it then it's not the installers fault. You can use unchecky which is for average users who are not careful about reading everything and accept all defaults when installing programs.
  12. Is life so dull you must be so negative on a forum that you have uninstalled its product. What are you wishing to achieve? I would assume all mods give up their free time to do the best they can. I tried to assist you the other day and you refused to listen point blank. The mods are doing the best they can, each likely with a different skill set. I'm a Malware analyst and my words fell on death ears when I tried to help you. I can only imagine what the volunteers have had to go through. This just seems like a personal attack on Members who give up their own free time. I think you should respect that a little more. Forum helpers take a lot of stick. We can't always be right. I retired from Malware help after 6 years of success, fun and rude comments. The person who got me into Malware was the Malware helper form this forum around 10 years ago. I don't know any of the mods here so as you may put it, I am not "sticking up for them". I just want you to understand people who give their own free time do it for the simple reason they want to help. No One is perfect and there are better ways of raising a complaint.
  13. Please do not use System Mechanic. You should never use any Optimizer on your system. They cause more system damage than a lot of Malware and soon will be listed as such by Windows Defender. Having such a program installing on your system will just bloat it down and you have more chances to have issues. These types of software are advertised as a program that can solve all your issues, speed up your computer performance with a stupid figure. There is not a single program that can do that. You may be already in this mess because of simply clicking fix. The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". miekiemoes' Blog One suggestion is you may be infected with "Zero access rootkit" which in turn if you are messing with the registry can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer is infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools. I am not allowed to ask for logs here so if you please follow Geekstogo which is the school I trained at. You may not be infected. But without running a system analyst scan It's guessing in the dark.
  14. 6 months to a year and now you complain? Can you prove the transaction? Instead of an unsourced rant provide information, evidence and act like an adult.
