Hey guys, as always thanks for your help. I recently went through some major
hacker problems but have stabilized the system to a degree. I now have some
problems with my active x video control files. I get freezes when trying to
view videos or when the kids play thier games. What I would like to know is
if there are any links to downloads or patches that could be made available
to me. Of course I would prefer freeware,lol. I run Windows XP, with SP2
bootup tells me there are some missing or corrupt files in my COM/ active x
files. I also have some registry issues with missing or corrupt files. I run
"registry pro", "ad aware", AV antivirus, and "spybot" which all come back
with nothing except the registry issues which involve the "missing or
corrupt" files from registry pro. Then they tell me not to do anything with
those files unless I know what I'm doing, which obvilously I don't. Any good
registry updating downloads available? Thanks again guys.

Eddie,
You can try typing in "dxdiag" without the quotes in Start, Run dialog
box, click o.k.
Try going through the tests. The first screen should show you what
version of Direct X you have. (should be 9.0c)
Usually hitting F-1 (help) may help you to re-install Direct X. Trying
to fix the registry after a hacking attack, may lead to suicide.
Best,
Treeman

I think the OP mentioned Active X, not Direct X.

Your right "SKS", yet running the direct x checks was a good idea. Checking
things now and then hasn't hurt. Yet, I do still have a video problem. Any
ideas techies? The kids can be rather annoying when thier games don't
work,lol. I actually have had a game problem for a couple years. Kinda like
the puter was never partial to complex gaming. It's a 4 year old athlon that
was top of the line when I bought it. Should I have a new game card
installed, or is this something I can fix?

Hi Ed,
The information you have provided so far is starting to make sense.
1. You have a computer. (make & model unknown)
2. That has been hacked, and feel you have bunged up registry files and
active X files, as reported by a 3rd party app. (Registry Pro)
2. You are running XP SP2
3. You have a video card. (model unknown)
4. The Nvidea drivers stop with a code 10 error.
Here's a couple of things you could try;
Install & run 'EVEREST Home Edition'
(http://www.lavalys.com/products/overview.php?pid=1&lang...)
Let us know what's on the inside of your machine. (make & model, age,
type of processor & amount of system ram, motherboard bios & chipset
drivers, graphic card model & ram.)
What I'm getting at is this; when I try to fix a computer with the type
of issues you describe, I want to know all the above info before I
begin.
In your case, it would be easier to format & re-install everything from
scratch, instead of trying to fix multiple deleted/unknown problems. I
know that statement is like a punch in the gut. But you have to be
prepared for this scenario anytime you use a computer.
I assume that with the computer running, since you "stabilized the
system to a degree," getting back-ups of your data would be possable.
Others may jump in with advice on repair installs, slipstreaming, ect.
But from what you've told us so far, this looks like a _hands_on_fix_
by someone that knows his stuff. Post back with more information or
your decision of what feels comfortable to you.
We will always try to help.
Best,
Treeman

help me out, drop me a line and addy, to send you the report. Thanks

Eddie,
Just go through the application, I don't need the full report. Write
down & post this; Computer make & model, type & speed of CPU processor,
amount of system ram, (memory)graphic card make/model & amount of ram.
I didn't scare you with that format & reinstall everything now did I?
:rolleyes:

Treeman

No man, you didn't scare me. I did all that. My puter is doing this because I
listened to guys like you. I was seriosly hacked by a gumball. All I said was
" you shouldn't pick on girls". And my shkit melted. Sorry, I'm not a guy
that has the time to be on the puter all day. Got a job, a wife, got kids,
got bills,,. Just like everyone else I guess. Just can't figure out the
intersest in screwing up a brothers machine.

"My puter is doing this because I listened to guys like you."
:rolleyes:
I'm not that type of guy Ed. I'm here to help if I can.
Via your post I see these problems, and suggest updating these;
Gigabyte GA-7VTXE Motherboard
BIOS Type AMI (10/08/01) to Bios built on 2003/6/5
'Bios'
(http://www.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Support/BIOS/BIOS_...)
Motherboard Drivers;
'VIA 4in1 Drivers Ver. 4.43 & Realtek Ver. 5.10.00.5820 '
(http://tinyurl.com/2llog)

I get freezes when trying to view videos or when the kids play thier
games.
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 100/200 (32MB) Not trying to "diss,"
your video adapter but 32MB is the bare minimum for video applications
these days.
System Memory 256 MB (PC2100 DDR SDRAM) 512mb would really help.

Gigabyte has a Download Center that is supposed to anaylize your
computer and install any updates without much interaction from you. You
can try it out and see if it recognizes your GA-7VTXE Motherboard.
'Download Center' (http://tinyurl.com/6y9pl) (paste the url together
if fractured)
After the updates I would try to reload the Nvidia drivers that support
your GeForce2 MX 100/200 'Nvidia'
(http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_71.89.html)
That's all I've got, your mileage may vary. I believe if you update the
core bios and drivers for that mobo, things may settle back to where
your happy once again. Let me know if this helped you out.
Best,
Treeman

"Treeman",

I'm so sorry I expressed myself wrongly. When I said "my puter was this
way because of guys like you", I meant that it works at all. Because of
people like you I have been able to get it back this far. I so appreciate all
of your help. Thanks for the links and I will give it my best, for a
carpenter that is.
