Posted 31 May 2004 - 02:43 PM

At my wits end here.

I THOUGHT I had a problem with my Promise RAID SATA 150 TX2plus controller card.

Approximately 5 to 10 minutes after I start my computer, I get the following message "Promise RAID Message Agent has encountered problems and must shut down." Then I get the option of sending an error report. After this shuts down, my computer runs extremely sluggishly.

Things I've tried:

*Shutting down computer. Unplugging computer. Starting it up again.

*Updating driver: My drivers are current. So there was nothing to update.

*Unplugged computer. Removed RAID card and inserted it again.

*Tried System Restore. But "can't system restore your computer because no changes have been made"

Promise's Support person told me to uninstall the Promise Array Managment application. I did and the message stopped, but the computer still runs sluggishly.

My computer is running Windows XP
Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHz
1GB RAM

I am also encountering this message:
"Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close"
Both the RAID and Win32 problems arose at the same time about two months ago.

I have scanned for viruses. I have run Ad Aware. There ARE a couple of adware programs on my system (namely, Save, WeatherCast, WhenU) because I occasionally use a filesharing program . I never had problems with it in the past.

I've included my Hijack This log in the hopes that might help someone analyze my problem. Thanks in advance.

You have a bunch of junk on there that isn't going to help matters.

Click here to download Spybot Search & Destroy - install, update, scan and fix all RED items it finds. Reboot when done.

Set your AAW up like this - before scanning click on "check for updates now" to make sure you have the latest reference file. Then click the gear wheel at the top and check these options:

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?".

Reboot when done. Rescan with HJT and post a new log here so that any remnants can be removed manually.

Could you click here to download CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom and run it, hit 'fix' as opposed to 'scan only'. Reboot when done.

Create a new folder called C:\HijackThis, move the HijackThis.exe file into the new folder and run it from there. This is necessary to ensure you have backups should anything go wrong.

Make sure that you have no browser windows open as this could prevent the fix from working properly. Open HijackThis, scan and when complete, remove the following entries (if still there) by checking the box to the left and clicking 'fixed checked':

All the O1 entries

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sys] regedit -s sysdll.reg

Reboot when done, rescan with HJT and post a new log here for a final check over.

CWShredder took care of a few things I didn't even know I had. Thanks. Here's the new log. The sluggishness remains however. So too does this error: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Your log is clean now so malware isn't the problem.

Click here to download System Security Suite. Extract it from the zip file into a folder and doubleclick on sss.exe. Check the boxes under the 'Items to Clear' tab and click 'Clear Selected Items'. You will be prompted to reboot, do so. Repeat for all log-in accounts on your computer.

If it's still the same, could you try disconnecting your peripherals, scanners etc to see if one of those is the cause of the error message.

Yes, I routinely clear out those files. I also should have mentioned earlier that I've removed various peripherals to see if that had any effect. It had none.

I have backups of everything and I am seriously leaning towards reformatting the drive and starting over. Do you think that's an appropriate action at this point? Or is it too drastic?

EDIT: By the way, Daemon, I want to thank you for all your help so far. I really appreciate it.

Still feels a bit drastic at the moment. Whilst it's running sluggishly, have a look via Task Manager to see what processes are using the cpu/memory. Have you tried using msconfig and working through your loaded applications, disabling them to see if that helps? Does the problem occur when online or at anytime? Do you get any other details when it wants to close that process - filename etc?

Disabled language toolbar via control panel.
Disabled a few rather useless programs that loaded on start up.
System seems to be running a lot more smoothly. I will know for sure tomorrow.

The odd thing is that even when the computer was audibly chugging along, the Task Manager CPU performance registered consistently between 5 and 15 percent. According to Task Manager Processes window, usage of the CPU and memory is very low.

UPDATE:
And of course the problem remains.

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close.
