Strange problem..

By temir

  1. I've done the scans and prepared the log files.
    Well, i have some problems on my PC.
    I have Windows XP Media Center, Service Pack 2.
    Recently, a week ago, my windows crashed and did'nt want to work/start. I tried to Recover the windows and the only thing that i could do was, form the Recovery console/dos, to replace a system/configuration file.
    I replaced this file:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system with C:\WINDOWS\repair\system

    Fortunately after this process my Windows worked again! And that was GREAT at that moment. But now, for example, i can't install Dreamweaver CS5, that i downloaded yesterday. I click on the set-up.exe but nothing happens... Than i try to "Run As..." me again, 'cause i'm the only user of the PC, and it gives me an error from Adobe: The installer can't be initialized. And i have also other similar problems now. I can't uninstall Dreamweaver CS4 that doesn't work anymore after my windows crash and also other programs.

    So i don't know what to do and if there's a virus on my PC or something else.
    I hope that i explained well my problem.

    Thank you very much!!!

    And another thing that i noted right now. I am the administrator of the computer and the only user, but when i open Emule P2P program it says "Your computer administrator can unblock this program for you". So there's an identity/account problem. What can i do with that?

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
    1. Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    2. Close any open browsers.
    3. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
      • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
      • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
      NOTE1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
      NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.
      • Close any open browsers.
      • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
      • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
      • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    4. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    5. When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    6. Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.
    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!


    Download HijackThis:
    http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/
    by clicking on Installer under Version 2.0.4
    Install, and run it.
    Post HijackTHis log.
    Do NOT attempt to fix anything!

    NOTE. If you're using Vista, or 7, right click on HijackThis, and click Run as Administrator

    I don't really see anything suspicious here, so I suggest, you start new topic at Windows forum.

    Uninstall Combofix:
    Go Start > Run [Vista users, go Start>"Start search"]
    Type in:
    Combofix /Uninstall
    Note the space between the "Combofix" and the "/Uninstall"
    Click OK (Vista users - press Enter).
    Restart computer.
