Hijacking, or what?

  bamfiesler 23:21 11 Sep 2004

I have had a few problems on the pc these last few days, and I thank you all - Partic. VoG - for helping me out.

Just tried to play my new, Kosher copy of Kings of Convenience CD on the pc, after playing a few mp3s. CD loads, the I get a message saying 'Certain files need to be updated before this cd will play', so I does, and it plays; but WinMP does nothing. I close it, and find this wee skin-form player playing the cd. Its says it is by Macrovision, and uses Microsoft products; also, in My Compter, the DVD/player drive shows a grren cross beside a blue-ish musical note.

Have I been stiffed again, or what?

I think that we need to get to the bottom of this, bamfiesler.

Please post a HJT log click here

You may need to do this in 3 or 4 xchunks because of the site's 800 word limit. Also please double space it by adding a blank line after each line of data.

Ok. Incidentally WinMP has tried to contact an update site twice in the last ten minutes; this, to me, is odd.

That's all folks! ( I always wanted to say that!!!)

Hi bamfiesler

Your version of hijackthis is out of date, could you delete the copy you have and download version 1.98.2 from click here run it again and if there are any differences in the log then post it again. I can't see anything out of place there at the minute though.

Could you post a start up list? Open hijackthis, go to config > misc tools > generate startup list.

I think that you will find that Macrovision supplies software to games producers etc. that prevents their kit being copied........click here

Thanx, guys.

I deleted this: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup , and all seems ok now.

Gandalf, can you expand on the Macrovision thing, please? I've never seen it before, and it only popped up when I put in the KoC cd.
