My computer (windows 2000) has done a very weird thing. Never seen it happen before. I generally never turn off my pc and only reboot when needed.
Few days ago, after waking up, go to my PC and try to open outlook express. Gives some errror or somethign about missing?
I try to open again, gives some weird different error.
I'm thinking.. what's going on here!!!!!
I try to open task manager ---- It does not to ANYTHING.
try again.. same thing.
I try to shut down computer --- I get this message, "You do not have permission to shut down computer"
NOW I KNOW SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG!!!!
I try again, same message.
So I click reset button on PC, after rebooting... ALL is normal and fine.
I have had norton (and is always updated), I have zone alarm, I even have a internal network (via Windows Server 2003) and I ran a view security setting check ( via a problem to check for security problems) --- all said okay, or mostly okay
Anyone have any ideas???? Anyone see that error message when trying to shut down windows 2000 pro machine?
((( and yes, I'm the admin <smile> )))
THIS IS my other question:
When I go to task manager, I see there are many processes running, most of I have NO IDEA what they do, several are microsofts operating system crap... etc. etc.
Is there a tool that will let me know what each process is and why its running? Or maybe it will let me know what and where the files that run the program reside.
I'm not sure if my PC has been hacked or I have a virus or its just a goofy thing with windows. BUT it happen for a second time.
I'm a little parnoid when something happens that I can't explain.
I'm about to reformatt my drive--- I need to anyway, installing XP pro soon... Just did not want to do it yet
