I recently noticed a new start up program running called Kernel Fault Check. I have never seen or heard of anything like this before. Can anyone tell me what it is ? Can I disable it ? Thank you all very much. YotaFish

I ran Hijack This and here is what I got. The searches I'm coming up with all point to a virus or worm.

I think you will get a faster respond for the Hjackthis so please post it over in HijackThis forum. In the mean time you might want to run a online scan for trojan and also virus

Thanx for moving the file to where its supposed to go Lulu. I ran both scans. One for the Trojans and the other for Trend Virus scan. Both came up negative. I also use Trojan Remover with a boottime scan and Norton AV 2003. OK. Where do we go from here? It looks like I'll have to format the HD for a change. It seems like I do that once a month. Its really easy when you've done it umpteen times like me. :mrwinky: Seriously, you know that nobody knows your computer like you and I just feel something strange here. When I reboot it takes forever to startup as oppossed to last week when everything went swoosh. Its slugish, I'm getting program errors in musicmatch jukebox. All this gives me the jitters. I love my machine and I feel terrible when its sick. Should I post a score ? Think that would help? OK. Here it is. I hope I did this correctly. http://www.pcpitstop...0AZAWHWGCMS0PQ3 Thank you again for you help Lulu.

The entries are gone. Thank you so much. I grovel at your feet. I'm not worthy of your kindness :laugh: If you ever need my expertise you can always count on me. Seriously, thanks a million. BTW. What was that stuff? I think one had something to do with Real Player but the other one I have no clue. Thank you again. Be Well & Stay Healthy. Sleepily YotaFish

The first entry was your main problem, it seems that after a lock up or hard shutdown, the memory dump got locked in a loop. The second one is Netster :nospys: Glad you got it resolved. ;)
