    My windows 8rp started not wanting to shut down and it was taking 4 to 5 min to boot up.I tryed everything i could that i saw on the forums but nothing helped.
    So i downloaded a little program called Rising pc doctor and ran it And found a tracker with the spyware scan (yes the locator ) Removed it and now fast boot and shut down app's load faster. Now my question is why?

    You're asking why some spyware on your computer caused it to do things it shouldn't do???

    Does this happen right after you install win 8? If it is then you may have downloaded and installed a sabotaged win 8 if you didnt downloaded from trusted site like MDL.

    But..... if this happens after a while you using WIN 8, installed and play around for a period of time maybe some days..... YOU probably have installed some malwares. YOU SHOULD NEVER EVER INSTALL softwares you dont trust.

    SO I suggest you should download a win 8 from

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/35604-Windows-8-ISO-guide-MyDigitalLife-For-All-Leaks

    or

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...O-VL-RTM-MSDN-Original-ISOs-Various-Languages

    and take care not to always install or go in to some sites which are suspicious. Or better yet not to go to any porn sites ^_^ :D:p

    Hey,
    he is talking about RP, which is downloadable securely from MS :D

    Huh really :laie:

    you ask why you get "flu" (spyware on your system)
    Doctor will say don't go out naked in the winter...
    We say because you surf and DL every single piece of crap found in internet and torrents without using Antivirus and Anti Spyware :D:D

    That's true, but the fact of not use antivirus/antispyware isn't a suicide, i've been using windows for years like that without problems.:p

    Seems to be that your computer is infected. Could be an RootKit or something else!

    If you have one HDD only and install Windows 8 on an 2. Partition. you could get infected from 1 Partition!
    If you have more that 1 HDD on your computer, disconnect that those other HDD's BEFORE setup Windows 8! Use an empty HDD only for to install Windows 8 only! After the installation of Windows 8 is done, install your AV program, connect the other HDD's while your computer run's (if that HDD's are SATA!!), and if your computer didn't detect that HDD's automatic, go to Desktop, roght click on My Computer Icon, chose Properties, click Manage and in the upcoming screen click Device Manager. In Device Manager right click the arrow in front of Disk Drives and chose Scan for hardware changes. You should now see the HDD's appearing. Go back to my Computer and right click on each drive and chose Scan for Virus.

    That all should gives you the infod you need about the infection and where they're! Clean the drives.

    Hope that helps you.

    Use mbam, you may need to d/l combofix. Just use caution when running it. Follow the directions to letter,Since I can't post links yet, google combofix and bleeping computers. . Another great tool to try before combofix, is tdsskiller. If your still infected you may have to run dban on that drive. It will fully format that drive. You run it from a bootable cd, or usb drive. Just make sure you have any other hard drives disconnected before running it. It will take hours for it to complete.

    Lets assume that the cause is not a virus. What else could be causing this problem. First, since you had to do a brute force shut down, I would run the scandisk utility to see if there are any problems that it needs to fix. Second, I would clear out both of your temp directories. You do know there are two; one under Users and another under Windows.

    After some research it seems as if it was implemented in net framework > But in the 12 years i have been building and working on computers this is a first encounter of this problem.I do however have fiber optic internet and private .However my piece of crap software fixed my problem.
