Hi m8's

i have started getting this error.



If i close pop, my net connectivity STOPS though connectivity icon stays. Only solution is Restart.

No new hardware/software/driver added. I am using current setup for 9 months - no issues.

Tried:

Restored OS image, but no avail, error still pops up. I am using Mozila and NOD32.

Help.

I'm not sure I understand you fully.

Is that pop as in pop-ups or is it an acronym for Prince of Persia..? Explain in more detail so that peeps here can help. Also run hijackthis and analyse the log file for any adware or malware.

Screeny is attached. in 1st post

I have tried fresh install of XP. No avail.

scanned all files using NOD32 and AVG 8. with latest definations ,one by one, by keeping lappy on network. No threat found.

Also ,Auto Update, is off for Win XP.

Still problem persists. Seems like some new virus/conflict of software. I am not sure what to do.

It has already screwed my ling weekend :-( :mad:

At Last.

Took Care of it. It has already screwed my long weekend :-(

Blocked couple of ports using Registry and Disable DEP using Boot.

All sorted out.

Thanks for all your input.

^^ Lol, share the reg tweaks...
It would help us too :D
Sure .. I am not original finder. Got it from Net :rofl:

Disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP) completely

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.
4. Click the Advanced tab, and in the Startup and Recovery area, click Settings.
5. In the SystemStartup area, click Edit.
6. In Notepad, click Edit and then click Find.
7. In the Find what field, type /noexecute and then click Find Next.
8. In the Find dialog box click Cancel.
9. Replace the policy_level (for example, "OptIn" default) with "AlwaysOff" (without the quotes).

WARNING: Be sure to enter the text carefully. Your boot.ini file switch should now read:

/noexecute=AlwaysOff
10. In Notepad, click File and then click Save.
11. Click OK to close Startup and Recovery.
12. Click OK to close System Properties and then restart your computer.

This setting does not provide any DEP coverage for any part of the system, regardless of hardware DEP support.

Verifying DEP is Disabled

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
3. Under or Pick a Control Panel icon, click System.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Performance area, click Settings and then click Data Execution Prevention.
6. Verify that the DEP settings are unavailable and then click OK to close Performance Settings.
7. Click OK to close System Properties then close Performance and Maintenance.

Second Tweak ::clap:

Symptoms:

* You are surfing the internet or are engaged any type of Internet activity when suddenly all your Network activity goes to hault. You can still see the Internet connected icon in the tray but you cannot surf, browse or do anything.
* You get an error message something like "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
* Error message reporting about faulting netapi32.dll and svchost.exe.
* You try to disconnect your Internet because of no activity observed but the Internet icon wont disappear.
* You recieve an error message something like "Your PC has recovered from a serious problem" etc.

Solution:

Follow these simple steps and your Windows will be fully cured of this menace :D

Close Port 445:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) by clicking Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
2. In the small box that Opens, type: regedit then click the OK button. The Registry Editor will now have opened.
3. Locate the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesNetBTParameters
In the right-hand side of the window find an option called TransportBindName.
Double click that value, and then delete the default value, thus giving it a blank value.

Close Port 135:

1. Then you must now navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftOLE
2. You will see there is a String Value called: EnableDCOM
Set the value to: N (it should currently be Y)
3. Close the Registry Editor. Shutdown and Restart your computer.

Well thats all :) but if you want you can disable NETbios.

Thats All..
