Whenever I type in "regedit" in the Run program, nothing happens. Well actually, the mouse pointer shows the loading hour-glass, but the program never opens. Please help me.

You have a trojan...many will disable regedit to prevent you from deleting them

How do I get rid of this trojan and get my regedit back?

Are you proposing that I repost this in the Malware forum?

I'm suggesting you read the malware forum, follow the instruictions and if still needed, then you will probably post a hijack log.

I read the instructions and thank you very much for you time. Just in case this may have anything to do with it, I have a few other problems that might be related to this one. My Task Manager closes after about a second of me opening it, my User Accounts is blank, and my Search is blank. Thanks for your continued help. Here is my logfile:

I said post in THAT forum....

The administrators on this site prefer that malware problems be posted there, where there are actually people who have been trained to deal with malware.

----------------------------------------

In the meantime, search for regedit.exe, make a copy, then rename it regedit.com

double click that, does that work? If not, it may be a corrupt regedit

Also, try regedt32.exed

In addition to regedit not working, does anything else occur?

Thank you very much. Regedit.com worked. But how will I actually be able to fix the problem and have "regedit" be able to be opened in "Run."

I did not understand what you meant by trying "Regedt32.exed." Did you mean to make another copy of it and rename it to that?

Well, for other things that don't occur, I'm not sure. Nothing directly with regedit I guess. I have told you about my Search being completely blank along with my user accounts.

I did a little studying and found this website. http://www.computing...forum/5857.html
It has the same problems as me like the regedit and Task Bar.

For example:

"Name: Lrkskrn
Date: August 11, 2003 at 14:16:21 Pacific
Subject: msconfig32.exe virus/trojan?
Reply:

if you haven't done this yet , please go to this website and apply Microsofts patch
http://www.microsoft...in/MS03-026.asp

heres what i had to do to rid my pc of this problem :
go to windows folder and find taskmgr.exe and make a copy of it. rename that copy to whatever you like and run it, the bug/virus won't catch it then. Take note as to what the file name of the virus is. Most of the time, it's running in the way bottom of the processes tab, just about system
zap it by highlighting it and pressing end process. Now, go to window\system32 and search for that file name you remembered from earlier. On my machine it was hidden, so make sure you have explorer set to show hidden files.


in my taskmgr.exe window it showed up as MSCONFIG32.EXE
some have said too look for these as well wincfg.exe and wincfg.src. These latter were not on my system.

I don't know if this was part of the trojan that was infecting my pc, but after deleting the MSCONFIG32.EXE file , I ran my updated virus scan,and then went browsing add/remove programs. I found something called mIRC installed there. I removed it and rebooted, my problem went away."


Might that be a solution?
