I tried to copy a movie from one IDENTICAL Win7 laptop to another via the network. Everything connected great, but once I began to copy the files and saw the transfer speed my jaw dropped. I maxed out at 2.5mbs and it dropped down to 1.5mbs. No difference having it plugged into the network or not. I don't see why the transfer speed wouldn't be near 50mbs wirelessly or 100mbs when plugged in. The router is a Linksys WRT54GL.

The internet works great. I speed test regularly at 20/4. It's something else, and I can't figure it out. I did searches and I did not see any fixes. Hopefully something is available at this point. It would be a shame if I couldn't transfer files over the network quickly like I should.

Thanks for the help!

Had a quick sears before posting couldn't really find anything the same as mine...

My girlfirends new PC has Windows 7 64-bit on it, now getting on the internet is a real headache! every time I click the network list at the bottom, and select the network I want, it will connect but if I make it show the the list of networks again it will loose the network.

when it does connect after a while it might drop off then trying to reconnect come up with "the settings do not match" I have to change them, then change back to get it to connect again but if I keep an eye on it while it connects it fails, bit like watching a kettle boil!

So far I've read just about every tip on the internet and cant find anything that might do the trick!

Windows 7 Home 64-bit
disabled the IPv6 setting
tried the wifi client that comes with the wifi card
tried changing the router settings

oh and it's WPA2 security

please help, she's at her wits end and is taking it out on me.

Everytime I start Windows, for almost 2 minutes after login, the hard drive read-writes are completed maxed out. MSE and what not starts before then, but Messenger, browsers etc can't be started until the load drops off some. I've attached my bootlog and system info, as requested by TorrentG. You all know I'm quite savvy and can try pretty muchly anything to keep solve the problem. I've already tried all the obvious things - disabling start-up programs and services (essentially to the barebone point) and even went through the paiun of disabling hundred of individual DLL's and executables using Autoruns.

TIA for any help

I have a REAL problem with slowness on my laptop, every program takes seconds to load and I am very tired of seeing the "not responding" message when trying to save docs, images - or even launch a program. Online it's the same thing, editing a Wordpress site and hitting Publish - can result in me having to wait for 30-40 secs for the page to reappear. I have checked with my ISP and also hosting support - no problems detected at their end, it's definitely a problem with my laptop.

I went through the horrendous process of doing a factory reinstall of my OS and apps about a week ago, taking images of the C: partition at various stages. I keep ONLY programs and OS on C: so I can restore an image of that at any time without affecting data. I cannot detect any direct conflict with programs, but it has progressively become slower as I added progs, to the point where I am back where I started!

My laptop is an Acer 7750, core i5 with 6.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz with a 700GB TOSHIBA MK7559GSXP (SATA), partitioned into 4 volumes, and is 9 months old. I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit with SP1 Intel Core i5 2410M @ 2.30GHz Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology and all updates are installed. By the way I couldn't figure out how to add this info to my profile, despite trying to follow the instructions.

I do run with 10-12 programs open at once, but believe the core i5 can deal with that OK - indeed I can view the processor and memory use in Norton Internet Security 2013 and the processor rarely goes above 25% and RAM rarely above 75%. I do quite often get a warning "High Disk Usage by xyz program" from Norton, it's usually Firefox, my email client or Photoshop, but also svchost.exe, whatever that is. I can see multiple instances of that program are running simultaneously when I look in Task Manager.

My partitions are:
C: Programs 88Gb - 29Gb free
D: Data 146Gb - 103Gb free
E: Backup data 250Gb - 90Gb free
F: Downloads and partition images 197Gb - 34Gb free

I thought it might be a virtual memory issue and have set it up as follows:
C: System managed
D: System managed
E: System managed
F: System managed
Almost ALL interaction is between C: Progs and D: Data

I use Iobit Smart Defrag to keep C: and D: under 1% defrag, and defrag boot-up once a week. I also run Advanced System Care to keep everything neat and tidy.

I spent some time reading posts on this forum before posting this message and did do a few of the things suggested here. For example I ran Resource and Performance Monitor and it reported "The average disk queue length is 6. The disk may be at its maximum transfer capacity due to throughput and disk seeks". However I don't know what to do about that! There are NO other problems reported, I checked every tab down the page.

I also ran "perfmon /report" to produce an Event Viewer/Administrative Events report and got 901 error messages! The bulk of them seem to be from Service Control Manager - see most of the long list here 2013-02-02_1406 - TopResults's library.

I have to confess to running Firefox with 30-40 tabs open - but the system should be able to cope with that, surely? I have attached a screengrab showing processing running right now, typical of an average day.

I used to have 6 progs run at startup, but have dropped that to just Skype and Norton I.S. at the moment, though there are quite a few that load that seem to be system apps (I left them as I don't know what they do). I don't know if loading many progs automatically at startup is any different really from launching them individually after boot-up has completed?

I am at a loss to know what to do. Any help gratefully received!


Just installed windows 7 pro, everythings fine but im haveing an issue with my ADSL2+ connection - where it drops out (doesnt actually disconnect, but stops sending / receiving packets) every few hours, causing anything im downloading or any games i might be playing to timeout and disconnect.In the network and sharing center it show as

My Computer---------Unidentified Network------X-----Internet

ive tried Detecing problems, and it just shows as unable to resolve issue, please read the troubleshooting guides (which I have)

Anyone else have any ideas why the connection might be doing this ?

I have a two computer home network. The issue I am having is that the internet keeps dropping out about every 20-30 minutes or so. It only cuts out for 10-20 seconds, and doesn't require a restart of the modem or router. Its annoying though because it will time out whatever page I'm viewing or boot me off whatever game I'm playing.

Details: The problem seems to occur more at night oddly enough. Sometimes the connection drops from both computers simultaneously, sometimes it drops from just one of them. Both machines are running Window 7 Pro (legit copies), and connected via ethernet to a Linksys WRT54G Router, which is connected to a Webstar cable modem.

I thought that maybe somebody was mooching my wireless in the apt complex (even though its secured) so I tried disabling wireless access, but this hasn't fixed the problem. I called the cable company and they claimed things were fine on their end, but its Charter Comm and I hate them with every fiber of my being. I'm going to update my router firmware when I get home from work, but I updated it like 2-3 months ago so I'm pretty sure its up to date. This problem just started about 2 weeks ago.

I looked on the boards and it seems that Windows 7 has some network issues, but I'm not sure if it is really OS related because both computers usually drop at the same time. Although Charter denies it, I feel certain it is on their end. I'm in the mountains and we've had over 100 inches of snow this year, do you think water/ice is affecting the line somewhere? Thanks in advance for any help/support/advice!


I've been reading for several days no to find a solution, and none of the tips I found over here, nor on the official Windows 7 forum worked for me, I'm completely puzzled by what's happening to my internet.

First of all, it seems I have a similar problem to a lot of people -> My LAN connection tends to drop out on me.
Now, it is not for the same reason as other people are saying here, my connection just drops when the load on my net isn't even that high at all ...

Things I tried already:
- Removing myself from the home-network group
- Enabling DNS manually (instead of the automatic settings which I always have done)
- Troubleshooting
- Disabling most of my components on that particular LAN connection ( QoS, IPv6 etc)
- ...

Now, and this is the part where it gets very weird ... I noticed that my connection doesn't drop completely, it seems *something* just cuts off my outgoing signal (upload) at certain times. The way how I noticed this is, because I sometimes play a game, while playing Call of duty ... everything went fine but every 1-2mins my connection would drop and I'd be lagging, not being able to do anything _at all_ for about 10 seconds. The thing I noticed is that I can still see other players move, and I'm on Teamspeak (sort of voice chat prog) with some friends a lot of the time and I can still hear them talking too, but it's just me who can't do a single thing.

I eventually tried something which I didn't want to try, because it's just not handy but I connected my PC directly to the modem (instead of a router which is in between) and I've had 0 problems since then ... makes me think it is an issue Windows7 has when trying to address local IPs or something and something really goes terribly wrong.

So, my situation is fixed temporarely but I'd love to use my router for internet ... I've had no problems running XP, Linux, Mac on it for several years and I'm so sure it's Windows 7 ... would be awesome if somebody could tell me if there's a way to fix my Home group :-), I'd be verry happy!


I am having an intermittent problem with my network connection dropping out for no apparent reason.

When it drops, I still see the lights blinking on the NIC card, but cannot pass packets even to the router.

Windows does not report the connection or the cable as disconnected when this problem is occurring.

The problem will persist until I disconnect and reconnect the CAT-5e wire, or disable and re-enable the NIC.

As soon as I do one of those 2 things, connectivity immediately returns (and works for another hour or so).

I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on an HP Pavilion.

All of the latest Windows updates and the latest firmware drivers are installed.

My ethernet connection is a wired Local Area Connection with a static IP address, gateway and DNS.

The IP address, gateway and DNS settings are accurate and work for several other computers here.

The Network Interface Card is a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (VEN_10EC / DEV_8136 / REV_05).

NIC Power Management, Energy Efficient Ethernet, and Link Down Power Saving are all turned off.

On the NIC, ARP/Large Send/IPv4,TCP,UDP Checksum/NS Offload, Flow Control, and are all on.

Receive Buffer Size on the NIC is 64Kb (512 buffers). Receive Side Scaling on. 128 Transmit Buffers.

Interrupt Moderation is turned on. Magic Packet features are turned off. Optimal Performance enabled.

NIC Speed and Duplex are set to 100mbps Full Duplex wherever possible (automatic was also tried).

802.1X authentication (EAP or PEAP) is disabled. Auto connection logic is disabled.

Connection routes through two switches into a Belkin router; other devices on same networks unaffected.

Much of my data is stored on a Network Attached Storage device, with UNC shares mapped to drive letters.

Other Windows, Mac and Linux devices connected to the same NAS device have no problems staying connected.

When the issue occurs, I can't ping the gateway, do DNS lookups or pass any packets as far as I can tell.

I have tried swapping out the CAT-5e cables for other cables and even ran them through a cable tester.

Network fixes I have attempted from the OS level so far include:

~ Switching the dynamic port range to start at 10,000 and run for approximately 54,000 ports
~ Systematically reviewing every running service to make certain that only the essential ones are on
~ Disabling all NIC stacks except Client for Microsoft Networks, IPv4, File and Printer Sharing and Comodo
~ Attempted connections with Comodo turned completely off and its NIC driver disabled
~ Attempted rolling back the RealTek driver to an earlier one from the same family and device line

Using netsh I have tried the following settings:

~ netsh winsock reset catalog
~ netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
~ netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
~ netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
~ netsh int tcp set global chimney=automatic
~ netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
~ netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global timestamps=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global netdma=enabled
~ netsh int tcp set global dca=enabled

I have ruled out any malware, spyware, virus or trojan horse as a possibility after extensive scans with:

~ MalwareBytes Anti-malware (subsequently updated to latest DB)
~ Kaspersky TDSSKiller
~ Microsoft Antimalware Security Essentials
~ Avira AntiVir
~ RootkitRevealer
~ Sophos SAR 15 SFX
~ PrevX v3.0 CSI Free Edition

All virus definitions and malware databases were successfully updated prior to these scans.

Software I am currently running on this PC (and that have not posed a problem for me in the past) includes:

~ Privoxy
~ Polipo
~ I2P
~ Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Firewall / Comodo Dragon
~ Avira Antivir
~ Microsoft Antimalware Security Essentials
~ PeerBlock

This problem only started happening a couple of days ago. I haven't rebooted in about three weeks.

If at all possible, I would like to resolve this issue WITHOUT a reboot, as that can take several hours.
(I have over 1000 suspended Google Chrome tabs & over 500 Comodo tabs; reloading them is a massive chore).

Other users with the same (or similar) NIC cards from Realtek have reported issues similar to mine:

I will be posting this problem in several different forums in hopes that someone might be able to solve it.

Chances are, if you think this is a simple issue you've encountered before, you're not digging deep enough.

Serious responses only from people who know what they're talking about and have READ the WHOLE post, please.


First off, it's aimed at the 6900 series cards but runs fine on the 5800 too since there's not any major chipset difference except a few scaling and speed tweaks really, must say though for the 655mb size I was completely unimpressed with it, most of the old demos such as the brilliant Froblins or Ruby Whiteout look much better tbh. I think it's about time they dropped stupid transformers ideas of the last two tech demos and get back to doing ATi Ruby based demos...

The HK-2207 real-time demo features a number of post processing effects (depth-of-field, lens flare, ghosting, aerial perspective/atmospheric, LUT, emissive and reflection) provided as an easy approach for developers and artists to adopt Microsoft DirectX 11 programming. This demo also uses a current trend in game engines utilizing deferred lighting and deferred shading allowing many more lights and rapid prototyping. A newly developed GPU accelerated physics particle system is introduced utilizing DX11 DirectCompute. Bullet Physics is used with a new fracture/destruction approach that also features procedurally generated unique debris leveraging DX11 tessellation.
Coming soon

Ok all you tech gurus out's a tough one. Occasionally (intermittant) I can't get a dropdown box or selection box to stay open. When I click the dropdown arrow in Windows Explorer to try and select a folder or share, as soon as I move the mouse, the dropdown box disappears. This also occurs in the task bar if I right click on an application button and try to select something from the menu. Finally, it also occurs on the Start Button if I try to select anything in the menu (such as Control Panel). I am running Windows 7 Professional on a Dell laptop with 8GB of memory, but have also experienced this on a different Dell laptop running XP Prof SP-3. I have search over a dozen blogs and forums on the internet and have compiled an extensive list of potential "fixes", none of which work: (faulty mouse, corrupt separate user account, virus/malware, TweakUI - "activation follows mouse" is set, focus policy should be set to default, etc., etc., etc.). Do a google search on the title of this post and you will see what I mean. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

I have a Toshiba laptop L305D-S5900. Never had an issue with this laptop connecting on my wireless, untill I replaced the my wireless router.
My old router is a Netgear Rangemax Wireless Router WPN824 V3. I replaced this router with a Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Router WNDR3400. The reason why I replaced the old router was because of it dropping out, meaning disconnected a lot.
I run many Toshiba laptops on this router and a Asus laptop. The Asus is a Windows 7 laptop, have one Toshiba windows 7 laptop, two Toshiba Windows Vista (one is the L305D) and a Toshiba running Ubuntu 11.10. All but the one connects to the internet.
Two days ago, I decided to run the Vista laptops to update them, one updated with no issues, the other is the problem.
When I first clicked on connect to network, I put the password in and it connected to the router but, a box did not pop up after that to tell it that is to be on home network and not public. In the network sharing, it shows Unidentified network and is set to public.
What I have done thus far was to: Delete the wireless adapter from the laptop and drivers and rebooted the laptop. Still the same issue. Reboot to safe mode with networking, still the same issue. Rebooted to the admin account and updated the drivers, still the same issue. Rebooted to Ubuntu Live CD, and I get internet.
The network adapter that is in the laptop is Atheros AR5007EG, the encryption is WPA2-PSK on the router. I updated the firmware on the router and still no internet, just local connection with an unidentified network set to public.
I have been working on this problem for two days now and not sure what to do next to solve this problem. Please help.

Hello there. First off, I’d like to share some news regarding the updates we made to the Autorun feature in Security Advisory 967940, which we released in February 2011. The advisory made changes to how Autorun handles “non-shiny” media (eg., USB thumb drives). The change was expected to make a significant difference to infection rates by malware that uses Autorun to propagate, and we’ve been monitoring those rates ever since.
The initial results are encouraging. As of May 2011, the number of infections found by the Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) per scanned computer declined by 59 percent on Windows XP machines and by 74 percent on Windows Vista machines in comparison to the 2010 infection rates on those platforms. (Windows 7 had the updated Autorun settings built in by default.) For more details and statistics regarding the drop in Autorun-abusing malware infections, please see the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) blog.
As we previously mentioned in the Advance Notification blogon Thursday, today we are releasing 16 security bulletins, nine of which are rated Critical, and seven of which are rated Important. There are four Critical-level updates that we want to call out as top priorities for our customers in June:

MS11-042 (DFS). This bulletin resolves two privately reported issues affecting all versions of Windows.MS11-043 (SMB Client). This bulletin resolves one privately reported issue affecting all versions of SMB Client on Windows.MS11-050 (Internet Explorer). This security bulletin resolves 11 privately reported issues in Internet Explorer.MS11-052 (Windows). This bulletin resolves one privately reported issue in Windows and is also Critical.
We recommend that customers apply these and all other updates as soon as possible.
In this video, Jerry Bryant discusses this month's bulletins in further detail, focusing on these four bulletins:

As always, we recommend that customers deploy all security updates as soon as possible. Below is our deployment priority guidance to further assist customers in their deployment planning (click for larger view):

The Security Research & Defense team has further information on deployment priorities for today’s bulletins on their blog.
Meanwhile, our risk and impact graph shows an aggregate view of this month's severity and exploitability index (click for larger view):
Since we’ve started specifying separate Exploitability Index ratings for the current and the earlier versions of products affected by each vulnerability, it’s easier to see how individual vulnerabilities affect newer products versus older ones. We assign Exploitability Index ratings solely to Critical- and Important-severity vulnerabilities, and there are 32 of those this month (the others are Moderate-level issues in MS11-050). Of those, 14 vulnerabilities have a lower Exploitability Index rating for the latest-and-greatest version of the software than for the older version, or the latest version isn’t affected at all. The remaining CVEs have no difference in severity between the versions.
More information about this month's security updates can be found on the Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary web page. Also this month, Microsoft is increasing MSRT detection capabilities for three worm families -- Win32/Rorpian, Win32/Yimfoca and Win32/Nugel. Please see today’s MMPC blog for more information.
Per our usual process, we’ll offer the monthly technical webcast on Wednesday, June 15, hosted by Jerry Bryant and Jonathan Ness.

As I feared, Windows 7 still uses the same WLAN Autoconfig service that Vista does, and just as in Vista, disabling it causes your wireless network to drop. As a result I have a choice between not having internet, or having Skype/games/the net in general lag out horribly every 60 seconds. Linksys only provides a vanilla driver for my WMP54G for Vista, not the wireless manager you get with the XP driver (which I doubt would work in 7), and neither Wlan Optimizer or Vista anti-lag work to clear up the issue on this OS (which I figured they wouldn't anyways). Does anyone have any ideas at all as to how I could get around this such as a 3rd party WLAN manager that isn't dependent on Wlan Autoconfig? I'm currently using the 32-bit version of the OS if that helps.

I have been having a weird problem since I installed Windows 7 Pro a week ago. I have the RTM retail 32bit OS installed. My PC is a Dell Inspiron 530 using integrated NIC. High end quad core pc, 4gb ram, etc.

My current setup:
Comcast SMC 8014 Gateway:
Belkin N+ Router setup as WAP:
Server 2K3, DC, Exchange, DNS, DHCP Servers;
Win7 PC:
HP Laptop w/ Vista Business 32bit:
Spare Dell PC w/ XP:


Every 2-3 hours, my internet connection drops. Comcast can see my modem, remote into it and ping from it even though I cannot get on the internet or log onto the gateway locally. Once I powercycle the gateway, things work perfectly for another 2-3 hours. Same thing over and over. Since I have business calss internet at my home Comcast came out same day and checked connections and replaced my gateway. Same thing happened with a new gateway and power supply. Once that didn't work they sent me a modem that home users use. I connected both the business gateway and home modem with a splitter. Everything was plugged into my WAP as stated above with my Win7 PC plugged into the home modem. I have had no problems with either service since. I tried many scenarios including leaving splitter on the line but plugging the Win7 PC back into the WAP and same problem. I have replaced the Nic card and cable to the WAP. I have also tried plugging directly into the gateway.

Any suggestions????

I'm running:
Windows 7 RC 7100 [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]64 [COLOR=blue !important]Bit[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]
EVGA x58 SLI Motherboard
Intel i7 920 @ 2.6Ghz (Stock)
6GB OCZ DD3 1600 @ stock timings
BFGTech NVidia GTX275 @ Stock Clock
SATA 750GB HD, forgot brand
SB XFI Fatality Sound Card
Antec True Power 2.0 PSU @ 530 Watts, 36 Amp Max 12v1 + 12v2.

Now, with my newly upgraded mobo/cpu/ram/gpu combination, I backed everything up and reformatted to upgrade from xp to W7. Everything seemed good, but as of recently, I've been getting complete lockups.

The system isn't hogged down, i.e., installing a game + itunes + [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]internet [COLOR=blue !important]explorer[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] open. Two of the five or so times it locked up was when i was opening Ventrilo. It completely froze, unresponsive to the point that control + alt + delete was unresponsive. Waiting it out did nothing, only fix was to shut it off cold.

Other times it occured while all that was going, and while I was browsing the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]internet[/COLOR][/COLOR]. Also while i was initiating a patch. Seemingly random times.

One possible cause, and really the only one i see that could be an issue, is that the motherboard has an 8 pin EPS connector, and my Antec PSU only has a 4 pin ATX connector. Now I read up on different forums, and many people said you'd be ok with only the 4 pin unless you're a heavy overclocker. But you need to keep an eye/finger on the connector to feel it for heat.

Could this be why? Resistance in the plug through 4 pins causes a voltage drop; and possibly the motherboard shuts down/locks up via brown-out precaution?

Or does this sound like a software malfunction of some sort? Maybe caused by Itunes/Ventrilo?

Any help is greatly appreciated,

*New Development*
I was thinking it was possibly a Ventrilo issue, come to find out it just did it to me again with only I.E. 8, iTunes, and A Game Installer running, and it occured right when the installer initiated.

Also, it almost did it again just now, iTunes locked up; cpu usage and memory usage was stable, but itunes stopped playing all together. Swapped from 5.1 speaker mode to 4.1 and back, and it reinitialized it and began playing again. Maybe this is a sound card error?

Internet randomly dropped out at around 5 PM yesterday and haven't gotten it working since. When I connect to another computer (which I'm posting on right now) it works fine. The problematic computer is running Windows 7 64 bit, this computer is running Vista. There is no router involved.

I've tried rebooting, disabling/renabling the adapter, rolling back the driver, a system restore, searching services.msc for bonjour (didn't see anything suspicious), updating to the current nforce driver, and manually setting an IP configuration among other things. I did an /ipconfig all on the computer that is working and used those details on the first computer while manually entering the IP, gateway, etc info. This got rid of the "doesn't have a valid IP address" error... great, right? But it's replaced with a generic "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem." When set to automatically obtain IP address I get a 169.x IP. I've tried pretty much every solution I've ever seen posted regarding this issue and nothing's working. It's not a problem with the ISP (another computer works fine), or the cable (another computer works fine), and my computer has two ethernet adapters; I find the possibility of both failing at the same time hard to believe.

Hello. Having problems with wifi connection (not making connection or not going through to internet or dropping out after connecting etc). Acer Aspire 5734z laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium, three different routers tried. I've read several of the posts and I will list "ipconfig /all" to send to you to help with identifying the problems. BUT I can't work out how to save the ipconfig listing from the command line so I can send it. Sorry if that is a really dumb question!
This year alone they will be responsible for infecting in excess of 25 million computers worldwide, but they could come close to compromising as much as 30 million machines. At the root of this epidemic lay simple social engineering tactics designed, through various methods, to convince victims to pay for peace of mind. Responsible for the actual infections are pieces of malicious code that the software industry refers to under a variety of monikers, including rogue antivirus, fake antivirus, scareware, etc.
Microsoft has put together a list containing no less than 114 AV rogues which are detected by the company’s antivirus products, including Microsoft Security Essentials, Forefront Client Security, etc. It is important to note that the list contains only the official label provided by the software giant. Each of the items featured below come in a variety of packages and under a plethora of brands, which actually makes the number of fake antivirus in the wild much larger.

Users that have doubts related to a security solution that is being aggressively advertised to them should first check to make sure that the offering is indeed genuine. Microsoft, but also additional members of the security industry, constantly update information on threats posed to end users, including rogue antivirus, and publish it on websites that are available to the public. These details are available to the public, and are essentially no more than a search away, at any given time.

“On page 100 of our Security Intelligence Report volume 7, we observed that rogues remained a significant threat even though they trended down to 13.4 million infected computers in 1H09 from 16.8 million in 2H08. (Internet Explorer 8 SmartScreen Filter, a browser-based security feature, contributed to part of the decline),” revealed Scott Wu, from MMPC.

Modus Operandi

“Rogue security software—software that displays false or misleading alerts about infections or vulnerabilities on the victim’s computer and offers to fix the supposed problems for a price—has become one of the most common methods that attackers use to swindle money from victims. These are programs that masquerade as legitimate security programs offering protection from malware, spyware, and other threats, but actually use social engineering to obtain money from victims, and offer poor or nonexistent protection,” the Redmond company reveals in SIRv7.

Fake antivirus will take it upon itself to run a scan of computers belonging to unsuspecting users. Of course that the scan itself and the results offered are both fake. Rogue AV doesn’t actually analyze machines, nor is it capable of detecting any malware, or to remove it. It’s all smoke and mirrors, a show put on to trick users into thinking that their computers is infected with malicious code.

“Rogue security software programs typically mimic the general look and feel of legitimate security software, claiming to detect a large number of nonexistent threats and urging the user to “activate” the software to remove them. Some families emulate the appearance of the Windows Security Center or unlawfully use trademarks and icons to misrepresent themselves. Rogue security software spreads through familiar malware distribution mechanisms, like spam and exploits, and through customized tactics, like a fake Webbased security scanner. After installation, some rogue security software families take other actions to evade detection or to frighten the user into paying,” Microsoft explains.

Once installed on a Windows PC, fake antivirus programs will attempt to scare the user into believing that various infections were detected. Rogue security solutions are designed to look very similar to genuine AV products, often copying at least elements of the graphical user interface, if not the whole UI, as well as using brands and labels mimicking, or even plagiarizing valid security offerings.

And integral part of the social engineering tactics deployed is to convince the user that the rogue AV is a genuine security solution, when in fact, much to the contrary, it is only masquerading as such. The fake AV will bombard users with alerts, and annoying, repetitive, incessant notifications, reporting inexistent infections.

At the same time, the rogue AV advertises the possibility of removing the fake infections, provided that users buy the software. Once a license is acquired, the fake AV ceases from delivering fake reports, creating the illusion that whatever malware had compromised the computer, was removed. Obviously, in this scenario, the users have been scammed into paying for protection against an inexistent threat.

“Though fooling users into paying for worthless software remains the primary goal of most rogue security software, several recently released families have begun to branch out and exhibit behaviors common to other threats, such as downloading additional malware to a victim’s computer. Win32/Winwebsec has been observed to download Win32/Koobface— which itself sometimes displays pop-up advertisements for rogue security software. Win32/InternetAntivirus, which was added to the MSRT in June 2009, downloads the password stealer Win32/Chadem,” the company added.


“As we have done in the past, we again encourage our readers to run a complete, up to date AV product such as Microsoft Security Essentials to protect their computers from these rogues, especially if located in English speaking countries - the regions where these rogues appear most active (as highlighted in the SIR). MSRT is a baseline tool we provide for the ecosystem to remove prevalent threats such as high profile rogues. With Security Essentials, on the other hand, you get the benefit of the complete AV signature set from the MMPC and you get the essential protection features an AV solution needs – real time, kernel mode detection, scheduled scan, complicated cleaning functionalities to address the em114 Windows “antivirus” to avoid at all costs

ergent threats, etc.,” Wu stated.

This problem started in Vista, I tried installing Windows 7 RC in hopes of a quick fix but with no luck.

=== Problem ===
After starting the computer it connects to the network fine and pulls a good IP. The connection will stay for a few minutes then just drop.
It will hang on "Identifying" for a bit and then simply lose all networks.

Wireless card will report "No Connections" and the net card reports to check the connection.

If I Disable/Enable the card it will fix the problem for a few minutes.

I have tried the registry edit that I found on the net for DhcpConnEnableBcastFlag but it has not worked. I am out of ideas...

Any help is appreciated, as of this moment the laptop is USELESS in terms of internet use...

Hey, just today i built my first build with these specs:
amd athlon 64 x2 5400+ 2.8ghz
4gb corsair ddr2 ram
xfx 9600 gso 768mb gddr2 pci-e
500gb seagate hd
xfx nforce 750a motherboard
zonet pci wireless adaper 802.11n

My friend lent me a copy of windows 7 beta and it installed in about 30 minutes and successfully.
I was running a quick, satisfying, and fast internet for about thirty minutes, then it dropped all of a sudden. When i went to re connect no networks were available, and none have for the last 5 hours. We've done all we can and still no networks on the list. weve installed the latest drivers for the pci adapter, weve troubleshooted and done everything but came out with no positive results. Frusterated with this situation, I decided to install cod5 to play solo play. I installed old but intermeddiate sounding speakers, that felt like they wanted to work whenever they want. this really made me mad, and it kept happenening. But ontop of it all, about 4 minutes into cod5 solo gameplay, the comp froze. I restarted and booted the game up again and did it over again but happened. I was having so much fun with the game, that i kept playing till it froze, then restarted again. What do i do? Why is it freezing? Why is the sound only working sometimes? We think its the operating system, and im almost solid on that decision, but what can i do? thanks
