    Hey, I appreciate you for toughing this out for me. You can tell that I don't give up easily and this thread is probably the longest on record for all the see:) Can be a little frustrated though.

    Anyway, I did posted 23 and still there is no regedit to be found although I transferred the file from my other computer to my c: dir.

    It shows Regedit.exe right on the desktop.

    Just copy it and paste it into the c:\windows folder.

    Once there do the ComboFix again.

    That is what I did yesterday as well as today. It is not recognizing that file. It is the file that has the blue boxes as the icon. You think it is best just to reformat the whole thing. I also noticed that a lot of DLL files failing to execute when I shut down the computer. Is it becuase of when I deleted a lot of the virius that it may of deleted the files as well?

    Possibly or the remainder of some malware we removed.

    Your choice on the formatting.

    Do you have any other suggestions since I am stuck not being able to run Combofix, MBAM stalling, and able to load Avira.
    I would have a problem running XP sp3 as long as it doesn't mess my computer up further. what would be my steps if I choose to do so? don't get me wrong, if you want to continue attacking this, then I can hang on.

    Hi Mike

    I installed XP SP3 on this computer in hope that it will eliminate some of the problem I have been having. My first step was to install Avira so that I am protected but I am still having the same problems as per post #67. Can you help as to want I should do in this situation?
