Very extreme problem

By 8cimi
Aug 1, 2008
  1. (last thing that was happening with the computer before the problem)
    was runing a bot to play online game, stopped and closed any program open and turned the pc off. (regular routine thing right?) turned pc on at later time same night, got and error msg

    The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application.

    when the pc starts up (upon actually having windows fully loaded) also i should not that there are 2 of the same error msgs. from here the pc seems to be fine.
    In fact I might not have noticed anything wrong so quickly if it was not that my windows looked different, I always keep it on "classic start menu" style but it looked like "start menu" so I click from start menu Ad-adware program and i get the same error and the program will not start, then I google the problem and found this site.

    now here is the extreme problem ( i think at least)
    i read to d/l HijackThis and follow the directions on not posting or doing anything like a noob.
    so i try and d/l, fine it d/l, I click to open the application to actually start installing the HighJackThis and i get the same error as before ( 2 times again) and again like with Ad-adware it does not open.

    certain programs will not open, mostly any or them regarding them being anit spyware, virus, trojan etc.

    other error is safe mode will not finish booting (?) at screen I select start in safe mode, it does its thing, then i get a black screen saying safe mode on the top, with nothing else, no icons, no start menu, nothing, not even mouse functions.

    trying to open the bot says this


    Run-time error '339'
    Component 'comctl32.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or in valid.

    microsoft windows XP professional

    amd sempron processor
    2600+
    1.61 GhZ 2.00 gigs of ram
    physical address extension
    i don't know what other info i can give, it would be nice to receive some help.

    thank you all for your time in advanced and pardon for the long read.

    also i forgo to mention I can NOT open system restore, I get the same error as before.

    one more thing that will not open but will not give me error is device manager

    just found out another thing, I can NOT open ipconfig from start, no error though.

    another thing I forgot to add was aside from the ...0x0000005... error, i get a second error when i boot up it says:

    error loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\NvCpl.dll Invalid access to memory location.

    Try:

    regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMCT2.OCX
    and
    regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\comctl32.ocx

    from Start-->Run

    Also run as Administrator too (in Vista)

    Actually, can you also try this:

    Right click on a program and select run as Administrator (again with this Vista! stuff)

    By the way is it Vista?

    Please try the above first

    You may need to backup (if you can) to external media (USB or CD/DVD etc)

    I believe it would be easiest to run a clean re-install

    If you have bugs (which I feel you do) and this thread does not help

    Then a backup/re-install may be best

    Doh! I need to expand on this.

    Legally you must have the Windows CD, in your possession and have purchased the licence originally

    ie You still need the CD (officially: according to MS)

    Additional considerations:

    1. The most likely overall cause for the problem is: "running a bot to play online game,"
    You did not shut down properly when through. So when you started up again you got this message: application failed to initialize properly (0x0000005)

    Now the system is hung up on a program that should have been shut down but wasn't and now is trying to startup again but can't.

    2.. "if it was not that my windows looked different," Could the system be booting in Safe Mode?Could
    3. " i get the same error as before ( 2 times again) " Which error?
    4. If your browser is in Chinese, which I take it is not your nationality, it has been hijacked!

    Before anything else is done, you're going to have to resolve the "bot" issue:
    Start> Run> type in 'msconfig' without quotes> enter> Selective Startup> Startup tab> uncheck everything except the antivirus, firewall, touchpad if laptop> Apply> OK> Reboot

    Close the nag message that comes up after checking 'don't show this message again.' Stay in Selective Startup.

    Then run the HijackThis log and as instructed, ATTACH the log to your post following these instructions:
    http://www.techspot.com/vb/faq.php?s...l&titlesonly=0

    If you see you can now run HijackThis, it would be in your best interest to run the full malware cleaning list and post all the logs here as an attachment. Additional programs are listed here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    1: my roomate ¬.¬ might have done what you said and turned my pc off improperly and with the bot stil on.

    2: well if its booting up in safe mode on its own (like I think you might be trying to convey) then im more confused, since it dosen t look like safe mode, it only looks like windows xp looks like when you first install ( you know its all blue-ish and everything is round) which is not the way I keep mine (I like classic style).
    and ive tried booting in safe mode, it starts to come up but when it finishes nooting (or so i think) theres just a screen (which I might take an actual digital picture because even the black screen that comes up looks wierd).

    3:The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application.

    4: probably,I mean i dont know.

    and Im not sure if you read my full first post, I CAN downlaod HijackThis, But I can NOT install it i get this.
    The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000005). Click on ok to terminate the application..

    Yes you have a Trojan or Trojans

    (The virus theft online games for the "Rainbow Island" account of the Trojan horse)

    Note I'm not a Spyware specialist, but doing this will get you running again:

    Locate and delete:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bndfxdh.cfg
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bndfxdh.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bndfxdh.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ghjsw.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\zxdtye.dll

    In registry (start->Run->Regedit) locate and remove:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft
    \Windows\CurrentVersion\ShellServiceObjectDelayL \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ ShellServiceObjectDelayL oad] : "DesktopWin" Registry values: "DesktopWin" REG_SZ Type: REG_SZ
    "{DA191DE0-AA86-4ED0-4B87-292A3D48BE99}" String: "(DA191DE0-AA86-4ED0-4B87-292A3D48BE99)"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run] under key's bndfxdh

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft
    \Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run] : "bndfxdh " Registry values: "bndfxdh"


    Note: We are faster than all other forums

    Handle the "bot" problem, then run HijackThis.

    Remove the processes suggested, but before you do the regedit, please back up the Registry first. Bit it might be that the some of the processes could be fixed by HijackThis.

    You can not be asking for help when they are helping you. This will really mess things up where you are getting help is one of the best places just have patients it takes time to fix it.

    ....this is what happens when you DL a bot program to play an online game. Nine times out of ten, theres always a trojan hidden in them, along with a keylogger. This usually results in your login info being stolen and your online gaming account being "hacked". My sons and I are avid online gamers, and see people talking about this stuff all the time. Hopefully you'll learn from this and just put the time in to actually play the game. If you dont however, and insist on using 3rd party bot programs to play the game for you, then youre only going to be back here in the future for an even worse problem. And believe me, your computer woes CAN be worse. Far, FAR worse.....

    well to tell you the truth, I actually trust this 3rd party program, I mean I trust it like you might trust something your brother built (if hypothetically you knew your brother was really good at what he does) this 3rd party program, and besides the point my account is still there intact.

    Well, I myself trust NOTHING on the web - Even legit sites fall victim to a few malicious users with enough brains, a bad attitude, and way too much time on their hands.

    To be safe, I'd scan the program with an antivirus, and once your current issue is resolved, maybe consider changing your PW/login info. Often times people who send out the keyloggers/trojans inherent in most 3rd party programs like that send out so many that while you may not experience any account issues right off the bat, that's only because they may be busy doing the same to dozens, maybe hundreds of other accounts, and simply haven't gotten to yours yet.

    I've played everything from Everquest1 to WoW to Cabal, and it's the same every time. Just do yourself a favor and consider the above mentioned. There's nothing like putting in time on any game then having some choad take it all away in one fell swoop.

    Aren't you still working with the other forum? You should continue with that help and not continues to bounce back and forth. That is not productive.

    I will however, only mention one thing-again: no matter who did it, it's causing a problem. Resolve the 'bot' problem.
