July 10, 2011 at 02:05:54
Specs: Windows XP, 4gb
I have been having terrible problems with my PC last 2-3 days . It freezes and sometimes when i restarted it stopd on detecting IDE drives. I see constantly the following errors in event viwer:
1 The IPv6 Helper Service service hung on starting. ( i allready tried starting "run" and writing IPV6 UNINSTALL )
2 The IPSEC Services service terminated with the following error:
The authentication service is unknown.
3 The Microsoft Boot service terminated with the following error:
The specified module could not be found. ( i got this only the last time it froze)
4 An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.
5 The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort2, did not respond within the timeout period. ( thats a warning not an error )
Please help me and sorry if i am picking the wrong category

Lets do some basics, what is happening in Device manager?
Is it free of red or other colored marks?

It should look something like this.

Hi John,
Everything is absolutely fine in the device manager. If you need something else just tell me.
Best regards

Trying to get my head around the variety of problems Kurt.

Try this.

Start > Run, copy & paste > netsh winsock reset & hit > Enter

It is better my friend. But still my PC has problems. Right now sometimes ( most times) the mouse ( and everything else) stops for around 1-2 seconds every minute or so. I have always thought i can handle anything that comes my PC way , but i am desperate right now. Any help will be appreciated.
Best regards

With everything that is going on, there are many tools to use, lets start with this one.

Download SDFix.exe and save it to your Desktop.
http://www.exe-error-fixes.com/sdfi...
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with SDFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on This Link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for...
Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.
1.Double click SDFix.exe and choose Install to extract it to its own folder on the Desktop. Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
2. Open the c:\SDFix folder and double click RunThis.cmd to start the script.
Type Y to begin the script.
It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
3. Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
4. Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt

I will do SDFix later today and will post results. I did try repairing my registry key with a lot of programs and actually it helped . Before that my PC was blocking every 20 minutes and needed a restart , but its still not they way it should be.
