Computer Problems


#1

I have a problem that I think could/is semi serious so I am calling upon the expertise of the many qualified T-men out there
As of late, my computer has been doing some goofy crap. A few weeks back, I got the blue screen but luckily it hasn't happened since. About two days ago I realize that none of the passwords that I have set my computer to remember have been remembered, and no matter what i do I cant even get my computer to remember my usernames. Whats the deal with all this?

No big deal, the blue screen of dead maybe was a random error that required memory dump, if your computer was ok after that I wouldnt worry about it.

And the passwords thing, maybe its a spyware program or you accidentaly cleaned all your cookies and internet histtory, or maybe you changed ir updated your browser?

Thats all I can think of right now, but there a lot of ppl here that know a lot about computers so dont worry :wink:

You mean your usernames you’ve set on your browser, or in Windows? If it’s the browser, what are you using (IE/Firefox)?

In the past, I had several websites (i.e. facebook, T-Nation) set to where whenever I pulled up such websites my username and password were already logged in so I didn’t need to do anything. Now it does not remember my username or password at all, no matter how much I check the ‘remember me’ box or anything. I do not think that it is a case of me deleting my cookies and whatnot because I keep re-typing them in and telling it to remember my password, to no avail

Have you checked settings in firefox to make sure nothings changed?

Get a program called HijackThis and run it - what it does is make a log of the services that are running on your computer.

Post the log on here and we can have a look if there are any suspicious services running, if you think it’s actually spyware or a little virus.
