  1. Runs fine but as always after we do this there are little changes to everything. No big deal. A fresh install has been needed for years. I have to ask, since you haven't dealt with W7 for a long time does that mean your not going to want to mess with it in the near future?
  2. I don't think desktop is an option. I'll give it a try though. Here is the latest log file you asked for: All processes killed ========== OTL ========== HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\\DefaultScope| /E : value set successfully! 64bit-Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{0633EE93-D776-472f-A0FF-E1416B8B2E3A}\ deleted successfully. 64bit-Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{0633EE93-D776-472f-A0FF-E1416B8B2E3A}\ not found.

  4. Dl'd it anyway and it got past Firefox I have reinstalled Firefox and all old bookmarks are there and I am using No Script instead of AdBlock.
  5. That's what a computer is to most people. Including me some of the time. I have a new problem. When I try to "Save target as" IDM wants to download it and I can't figure out how to put it on the desktop. The option are drives only. Any ideas?

  7. No. I can go to the C drive and view the User\Redog\AppData folder again too. It's always amazed me how every time we do this the confuser always has little tweaks that are a minor nuisance. The image below is one example. Windows 10 I have used at a friends house and as I said before, can't access anything like in W7 or XP. It's as if Microsoft doesn't want anyone playing around with their crap. I will avoid it for as long as I can. This friends confuser is so slow. It takes 20 minutes to load the Operating System. He has no recovery Discs. I thought about getting ov

I typed DDS scr in to DuckDuckGo and the first in the list was Bleeping Computer but it doesn't say DDS scr, Just DDS Logs: DDS (Ver_2012-11-20.01) - NTFS_AMD64 Internet Explorer: 11.0.9600.19267 BrowserJavaVersion: 11.201.2 Run by Redog at 18:24:17 on 2019-02-19 Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7601.1.1252.1.1033.18.6143.3817 [GMT -5:00] .

  9. Removed Firefox Still, locks up at Firefox settings. I'm using Firefox Nightly right now.
  10. Windows Updates still happen every month and the darn things are usually over 300Mb in size. XP was never like that.
  11. Same thing. As soon as it gets to Firefox settings it locks up. I just went in to remove software and removed some stuff. Rougue killer was one but I left Tweaking Registry. Any ideas? My biggest issue with W10 is that it's so inaccessible. I asked you about getting to C:\Users|Redog|Appdata because I could view that folder before. Now I can't W10 is like that for everything!!!! If I had it my way, I'd still be using XP
  12. W10 is the worst man! I'll try again but I bet it locks up at Firefox. What if I used an older version of OTL? Not that I have it anymore.
  13. Yes I run Quantum and I use IE occasionally when photos don't load in Quantum. I use Cyberfox for e-mail because it has passwords loaded and they don't seem to work in regular Firefox. Any idea how to fix these registry issues and programs slowing down the confuser? The digital TV Tuner Registration is not to be found. Windows Media Center Store Update Center is an unknown. Never seen it. Sidebar I don't use. Microsoft SQL sERVER 2005 is another unknown. Broken registry and System Junk would be nice to clean up also.
  14. Noticed these two icons on the desktop after running the failed scans. Just tried to run a quick scan and the same thing happens. It locks up at Firefox settings
  15. I've tried to run it twice now and it locks up (not responding) at Firefox Settings.
  16. Trying to do this after waking up is rough. I had to re -read your replies over and over. Hope I did it right.

  17. Hello Chuck. Been a long time since I was here. Found Trojan Boaxxe on the ol' confuser an ran your old software from years ago only to find out your using all new software. Also, see that you are still hard on it about P2P. I removed it and a lot of other old stuff and ran the software you recommended in the sticky post titled spyware virus and junk removal. Hope you will give the logs a look over. Also, I can no longer get to C:\Users\Redog\AppData. It doesn't appear anymore when I go to that drive. As always, your the man!
  18. No sweat. Not a big deal. Many thanks, for all you do here. Hey, I saw on LiveLeak that Leo is back with a new version of "Call for Help" Don'y have TV, but do you know where that can be seen? Lock this thread.
  19. In the sevenforums link you sent, the first option, is the one that is used most often to enable file extensions, or hide file extensions. Right? The question is, why would your repairs cause the file extensions to appear again after years of being hidden? When I built this "confuser", I probably had them visible, but after one of your repairs, a few years ago, they became hidden. No big deal, instead of enabling again, I got use to it. Have gotten use to them being visible again. Just curious.
  20. The first fix in the link, is the one I was talking about. Never heard of the other stuff. What would cause that to change?
  21. I have no problems with any of it. Have gotten use to it and am actually glad No Script had to be redone. How about the file extensions showing up again? What would cause that? I know your probably anxious to lock this thread, so go ahead. Again, thanks.
  22. Not angry Chuck, just curious. Now, more so since you say it shouldn't be.
  23. Seems every time we do this, various programs or extensions behave differently. No Script icon is different and I had to start checking everything off again. Lower right where the clock is, (quick launch maybe) is no longer the same ( AVG was inside, now it isn't) and Logitech Gaming Keyboard Software had to be reloaded. The Logitech Gaming Mouse Software won't load at all. Another thing is, the last time we did this, file extensions no longer appeared. Now they are back. Small price to pay, but I'm always scratching my head.
  24. Yup. Fair warning though. The Isle of Man TT is at the end of the month and since I can't go, I will be itching to view it online. Will try and avoid Wizwig and Crickey or whatever it was. Thanks again Chuck. You are the man!
