My system has been sluggish ever since I upgraded to the new Yahoo messenger approx 2 weeks ago. The main problems I am having is running out of Ram, so that when I am online, my system completely freezes up, or, it runs partially, but I only get half a graphic or half a page...or if I am in Yahoo chat, I can not see my own typing really weird stuff.

This begins to happen with just an hour online--so that eventually everything freezes, and I have to reboot.

I keep Norton's Firewall running at all times, and Symantec Virus Scanner, and while doing a random check trying to find the problem, I found that I have STIMGBRWSR running at all times in the background.

I dont have a clue what this program is or what it does--I do know that it hangs, and I have to CTRL ALT DEL to get it to shut down.

I also know, I have found the it's files in my C drive but I can not delete them. When I go to right click, delete, Windows gives me an error and I get booted back to my regular screen and out of C Drive.

I can not find it on in the box to uninstall programs, it is not listed.

Also--I did get Spy Sweeper and it found UGO20.exe file in my downloaded C Windows files--I can not find this file to delete it.

I uninstalled Yahoo Messenger, without much success of freeing up memory and then I have just run Spy Bot which did clear up quite a few things I apparently had wrong but neither of those programs showed up in that sweep.

I also have a program called Rafri8, and I have no clue what it is or how it got there.

I am willing to do a hijack this log, however I wasnt sure if I was supposed to post it now, or when one of the guru's said "post it"-lol.

Thanks for any and all help--

Let's see, I am running a Pentium, Windows ME, and I am dial up.

Thanks,
Rhonda

For the record I still can't redownload Yahoo messenger, and my domain is not Somer-net-I changed ISP's over a year ago.

Thanks!!

Dear Rngpie, :ph34r:

I have a program written by M$ but added to my computer by the software accompanying my new HP printer: "Still Image Devices Monitor" (STIMON.exe)
Yours looks like a version of the same, it runs all the time, incase you want to download Digital Images from a camera or such. Of course it could also be a perversion of an original program, placed on your computer to act as Spyware. :techsupport:

Suggest that you use your search ability (Search Drive C) to look for the folder containing the file concerned. Then right click on that file, & choose "properties." Search these and find out if it is a genuine M$ file or it originates from some Spyware company. If it shows as M$, leave it alone; but if from another company that you have no knowledge of, then come back to this Forum and someone can advise, before you remove it. :!:

Best of Luck, :bounce:

Ok., Stimgbrowser is apparently something that goes with my camera--lol oh well, but my system is still acting weird, such as it refuses to download Yahoo messenger (which I miss dearly,) and sometimes I can not get programs to open...perhaps it is time to rid myself of the dinosaur and get a newer system.

any other advice greatly appreciated--

Rhonda

Dear Rngpie, :lol:

I still use WinME and would not upgrade to WinXP as it seems targetted for all sorts of Malware. Did you ever follow my instructions as to the Properties for your mystery file. If not, then please do so. What and who it belongs to could well be the answer to your problems. :scratchhead:

Lastly, although you may not want to hear it, any Messenger service :evilgrin: by it's name carries the problem of everyone knowing the moment you log onto the Net. The software supplied to you, mostly comes from M$ and is constructed to not only tell your friends when you are online, but everyone else that has been sold the details of the backdoor cookie that is used. Unfortunately that cookie also opens ports in your computer that allow others to read your details and place Spyware on your computer.

Rather than scrap your computer, :zipped: please follow the instructions given when you submitted your log. It all takes a little time. Lastly do you have Adaware, If not then check with the download section of this Group and install/run it. That along with an up to date copy of Spybot S+D will at least rid you of most of the stuff causing you the problems that you complain of.

If all else fails and you can't find and download it, ask here and I will give you the links involved. :deal:

Best Wishes, :weep: (Mike Healan can you assist, please)
