Windows 7: System Randomly Shuts Off - Since Yesterday [Problem Details Within]


30 Aug 2012   #41

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 

Just disabled all start-up programs under msconfig and services under ccleaner except Adobe Flash Player Updater and CCleanerSkipUAC.

Do I just play the waiting game now?

Avira (AntiVirus) re-enabled itself after a reboot under msconfig. I doubt this is to blame as I've been using it issue free for years.

REMOVAL OF P2P PROGRAMS

There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:
How cyber criminals infect victims via P2P with pirated software on Vimeo
Malware: Help prevent the Infection
Perils of P2P File Sharing
How to Prevent the Online Invasion of Spyware and Adware

I strongly recommend that you uninstall:
µTorrent
BitTorrent
Vuze

==========================
Since you have used torrent software and have some programs of questionable origin on your computer, please carry out the following:

HOW TO USE MICROSOFT'S OFFLINE MALWARE REMOVER
Windows Defender Offline
· performs an offline scan of an infected PC to remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware.
· is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.

Download Windows Defender Offline (about 785 kB)
You will have the choice of downloading the 32bit version (x86) or the 64 bit version (x64).
The link will help you determine whether you are running a 32 bit version or 64 bit version of Windows

NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 32 bit version using a 64 bit version of Windows
NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 64 bit version using a 32bit version of Windows.

You run the 32 bit version on a 32 bit version of Windows.
You run the 64 bit version on a 64 bit version of Windows.

The 32 bit download file name is: mssstool32.exe
The 64 bit download file name is: mssstool64.exe

For the curious, this program was originally name Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.


INSTALLATION:
· Requires an Internet Connection.
· Insert 512 mB or larger USB stick into a usb port.
· Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe
· NEXT button
· Choose the option On a USB flash drive that is not password protected
· NEXT button
· NEXT button
.
The install program will:
· format the usb stick using the NTFS format.
· download less than 230 mB.
· name the USB stick WDO_Media32 or WDO_Media64
· use less than 300 mB.

How to UPDATE the Windows Defender Offline USB stick:
· reinsert the usb stick
· run the installation program, mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe, again.
· the update will download less than 65 mB.

Since the malware database is sometimes updated several times in a day, always update before running.

PERFORM AN OFFLINE SCAN
Bootup your computer from the USB stick
Windows Defender Offline will automatically perform a quick scan.
After the quick scan finishes, Choose Full Scan
Select all of your drives

The initial, full scan can easily take several hours, but
Remember, your computer is being very thoroughly checked for all types of malware.

generally, a 100% current and paid-for version of Avira will not cause problems. I expected Avira to reinsert itself into the startup list. We will let that ride for now. As you see from my other posts, we've some other fish to fry.

I've just uninstalled Vuze and Drivercleaner as I don't ever have a need for using them these days.

Is SUPERAntiSpyware known to cause issues? I've used it for years problem-free. I used a variety of anti-spyware/virus software on my brothers machine when it got infected a bit back and out of the acclaimed of software I used, SUPERAntiSpyware was the only one to detect any nasties and eventually make his machine safe to use. A friend has some malware and he didn't get rid of it until he used the same software too, it's worth every penny for an unlimited license.

I'll follow the steps to perform a scan with Windows Defender but I'm 100% positive nothing harmful will get picked up/that malware is unrelated to my issue.

Yes, most supposed anti-malwae software will "find" malware, non-existent malware.

If you want 100% protection 100% of the time then remove all AV software and use MSE, Microsoft Security Essentials with link in my signature.

Well I'll definitely look into exclusively using MSE if Defender picks anything up!

I'll be in touch once the scan has finished, thanks as always
