Can autoit do strange things?

30 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have made i nice program for a disco for people from 12 to 15 years old.

Now do all members have a nice card whit barcode on it so you can scan them and you can print the file etc whit many things.

Now last friday when i was not there the computer was doing things i did not programmed.

Can autoit do things i not programmed?

There is no virus scan or spyware scan so that could be the problem but now does everyone say i dammaged the computer and i did not...

At thuseday i was there so copy my last version onto the pc so the can use it on friday

Can it do strange things?

I have heard that the program does not how it needs to be but it was a stratup problem..

The computer did noting the say

When it does nothing the start it up and again it does nothing the have tried it 5 times but can not run windows..

When you start you pc you get a black screen whit mouse and then it does nothing more...

Check your code for bugs. Just cause a script dosnt throw an error that dosn't mean that your code dosn't work out how you want it. I don't know if you ever read Eragon/Eldest but when he gives that blessing that turns out to be a curse because he phrased somthing a little wrong? ya.

Edit: 2 posts while I was writing that. wow. Ummm, ya you got a virus mate! Or somone magnet attacked you...

Can you be more specific? what kinds of strange things? could be anything from a programming bug to a virus... May we could help more if you post your code.

EDIT: wow... 3 posts encompassing everything i was going to say got posted in the time it took me to type mine...

When my program start it encrypt the members database ( ini file) when it closes it encrypt

When it srash it does not encrypt so i made something the program sees it and does not decrypt

The program does not see any member when it was scanned. After startingup it again it works fine

Then the pc did noting the can not use the mouse etc.. it crash and the strat it up again.

5 time still doing noting

that all i know

I already say you need a virus scan but the say when you do not go on the internet and you do not have an virus scan you don't get spyware and virus..

i am sure there is some at the pc

How to explain them

The argument that the gave to me was i never have a virus scan and vener have a virus.. that is because you are behind an router and the pc is not behind a router..

The next time you start the computer, hold down Shift. That will prevent it from running. Keep Shift down until you get all the way into windows. Then post your code here, and we'll take a look at it.

This is interesting:

$shutdown = MsgBox(4,"Uitschakelen","Wilt u de computer uitschakelen?")
            If $shutdown = 6 Then
                Shutdown(9)
            Else
                Exit
            EndIf

You do have a Shutdown(9) in there, which will cause the computer to Shut Down and Power Down. You also have some MouseClicks in there.

For starters, I'd comment out the Shutdown command, and see what happens.

What version of Windows is the computer running and does it have all the updates? It may be a security exception and Microsoft has been known to turn some security access violations into blue screen errors.

Sure does sound like the Blaster Worm, doesn't it? It wasn't all that long ago that my PC had a security hole and I got attacked by more viruses than I could count. I haven't had Blaster myself, but I've had my share of crap that could not be removed without hours of manual file deletes in safe mode, restarts, redeleting, rebooting again, folder deletion, and tons of manual registry key deletions. VIRUS PROGRAMMERS are the biggest form of lowlife, imo.

People who think that they are behind an impenetrable fortress just because they have a router witha firewall amaze me. I have a friend who has a router and wont run antivirus for the same reason. She has to use system restore sometimes twice a month. I proved it to her by remotely connecting to her PC and running a portscan without her firewall saying a word...Hard to believe I know, and most might say Im lying, but its the truth.

How to explain it to him?

Send him the link I posted above. He should be able to figure it out for himself.

Also, send him this Blaster Worm fixer from symantec:

http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/glob...ps/FixBlast.exe

After running that he HAS to patch his system:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...n/MS03-026.mspx

And after that, make him go to Windows Update, and update everything.

And after that, make him turn on Automatic Updates.
