Something running behind the scenes, can't figure out what it is and how to remove it

Hi,

I just noticed this within the past 2-3 weeks and I checked my add/remove history of apps and nothing really stood out in the month of February. All I had installed was:

NVIDIA update drivers
Logitech Webcam Software
McAfee Security Center

I took print screens and attached them to this post. I also attached a zip file of the HiJackThis log that I ran, which didn't come up with anything unusual when I pasted the log into the Analyzer website.

I'm running Windows 8 64-bit Dell Inspiron 17R laptop.

It's very strange. I checked the task manager and looked at the startup and apps and nothing stood out.

To describe it based on seeing the print screens I captured attached to this post, whenever I start up my computer, while everything is loading after logging in, I see this blank window pop up where the body of the window is empty, and it pops up, and on the title section of the window, it starts off with "DSD_" and followed by random numbers. I found out after restarting the computer everytime that the number is not always the same but is different which holds true based on my 3 printscreen captures.

When it pops up for a while, all of a sudden, it disappears, and the way I've found that it's still there is when I do an ALT+TAB shortcut which usually toggles between windows and I see it appear in the selection.

Actually, it always appears first when I do a single ALT+TAB between two windows. It's there until I shut down or restart the computer. I can't get rid of it. When I try to toggle to select it, nothing happens, nothing changes on the computer screen that I can visibly see.

I tried to Google search what DSD_(some random number) means, and I could not pull up any results.

I don't know if it's malware, but it's very annoying how I can't toggle over to the previous screen do to this thing that's embedded in the selection options of the ALT+TAB and I don't know what it stands for.


I'm currently running a full system scan of Malware Bytes Trial Version to see if it picks up anything.


Anyone ever run into this issue or can help me trouble shoot to remove this?

I don't know if it happens to my other user profiles on my computer. I can try later. I know worse case is, I can just copy My Documents My Pictures, Downloads and other folders into a new user account, but I don't want to go through that unless necessary.



Thanks.

can you post a "process list" from the task manager? (make sure you check the "show processes from all users")

Any easy way to do that? That looks like it will take 6 print screens to cover the whole list.

Also, I don't know how to show processes from all users. That option doesn't seem visible in my windows 8 task manager.

Oh. I googled and found out I could do in the command prompt : tasklist > processes.txt to get the list.

But this list doesn't look like the things I see under the Windows 8 Task Manager Processes Tab, but it's what I can do for now. I attached it as a zip file to read it more easily.

Mines been on all day and has less than half the processes you have going.

OK. I just rebooted, and I did the Tasklist command and saved it as a text file in a zip attachment posted in this reply. If you don't want to download that, you can follow this unpretty list to try to look at everything.

You know, the strange thing is that when I rebooted this time around, and waited for everything to load up after logging in, I saw that DSD window pop up very quickly and then it went away like in a second so I couldn't capture the number. But, when I did the ALT+TAB, I didn't see it show from the selection, and everything looked normal.

But what's not normal is that popup with that window, even though this time it's not lingering there in the selection menu this time around, it appears to be intermittent then if it doesn't happen 100% of the time. More like 9 out of 10 times it appears noticeable.

Also maybe check which programs are starting when you start your computer by using CCleaner (Tools then Startup).

Dell System Detect-----DSD

What is Dell System Detect and how does it work?

Dell System Detect is an application which scans your computer to detect your service tag. This enables automatic detection of updates related to Drivers and Downloads or other recommended software.
This Application is installed when you request Dell to detect your service tag. Once downloaded, it can update itself to the latest version when the computer is connected to internet. Usually the application launches at start up.
When any installed security application blocks Dell System Detect, a notification is displayed on the screen.

How to uninstall Dell System Detect?

Click Start and select Control Panel
Select Program/Program Features and navigate to Dell System Detect
Right click Dell System Detect and select uninstall
Follow the prompts to complete the removal of the application.

Get rid of that, see if it works and then maybe work on the other 50 things that shouldn't be starting up. Smilie

Oh. Is that what the DSD stands for? I didn't know that. I will try to uninstall that and see what happens after I reboot.

Does it seem strange to you how that program seems to have a different name for itself everytime you restart the computer? My first post had different observations of the name of the program whenever I restart. I had 3 attempts of reboots and got 3 different program names.

One was DSD_5284, One was DSD_4860, and One was DSD_5660.

You'll have to ask Dell that question. Just copy the 7 digit alphanumeric code on the bottom of the unit and write it down. That's your service tag number. good luck

Your tasklist after boot up is gigantic.
The screenshot below is from my PC that has been on for a day or so, with several processes running, and it's tiny next to yours.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with the DSD notification, but it appears that you need a bit of tweaking.

DL a clean copy of Windows 8.1 and do a fresh install. You can use Windows file transfer to transfer files and settings then all you have to do is install programs/apps you want and not have all the crap ass bloatware. That's my suggestion and what I do everytime I buy a new PC from a large bloatware corporation (looking at you HP). You clearing sound like you know what your doing with computers enough to not need handle holding bloatware for updates/drivers/support (most of which is automatic in Windows 8 anyway).

that's my .02

I heard that Windows 8.1 has issues, which is why I haven't upgraded from Windows 8 yet.

I'm not sure what bloatware I have. I hardly install any problems. It looks like most of this came with Dell preinstalled.

I don't have the cd's that came with the Dell to do the reinstall and load in the free software and drivers from scratch. It seems like Dell stopped shipping cd's to come with laptops boxes. I was going to try to ask them for that. They might charge me for shipping and handling though. Not sure. Anyone here know why they stopped bundling CD's with their computers?

I'm not sure how to use Windows Transfer and Settings. I normally just copy the My Docs, My Pictures, Downloads, and folders I recognize into my external hard drive and then if I were to reinstall, I just install one at a time all the software that came with it. There's probably a better way, but I'm not familiar with it.

I think this is all what comes with my Dell Inspiron 17R preinstalled. I've only installed a handful of apps since getting this laptop a year ago.

Have you made the Dell Recovery disk set? I did a SSD install from that and it included the recovery partition. It should be under Dell Data Safe. So unless something is different it should work.
