My system is within my sig and it is running slower every time I have restarted. I do NOT do a WARM boot unless something was updated from Microsoft like security software or patches. Only do COLD boots.
I have downloaded and started using the FileAlyzer2 and do like the more extensive info provided, if I may have a little HELP in understanding some of it.
Start with my system has been acting a little strange since about early to mid November, 2008. Closes down my Avira AntiVir (latest version) updated daily, Comodo Firewall Pro until updated to Comodo Internet Security still is closed down unexpectedly, DiamondCS RegProt, TeaTimer, and anything that Vista installs like Volume control, Dell Support Center, and a few other. Also has stopped gone to a Black screen and started to reboot, I immediately press the ON/OFF control to prevent the WARM boot. Depending on my "Honey Does" it may take up to 3 or 4 hours before I am back to continue.
Have done some examinations of some of my dll files and becoming a little concerned. Example: Shell32.dll open in FileAlyzer2 - clicked on Disassembler tab - then Disassemble and find approximately 529 Blank Instruction lines and those that can be seen are not in alphabetical order, very randomized. Can you suggest any file to examine to see if there have been any additional information placed there to maybe ID if there have been any Virus or Trojan software placed there? There is one that has an entry UPX0 but the Hex area has all 0000 0000 in the area that highlites to match the info in the last column to the right.
One last point, ran FileAlyzer2 from within Admin access to Safe Mode Command Line and had several ERROR report requests to send and did not have a WWW connection to accomplish that, so I just selected the Continue Program. One was when I had clicked on the VERSION tab and cannot remember where the others were.
Enough for now, if you have any questions I will do all possible to find an answer,
