I am working on my nephews computer which runs very slow. I discovered the TRVundo trojan and decided to try and delete it. I got some online instructions and went to work. Unfortunately in my zeal to destroy the bad, I inadvertently deleted a Windows file PCHealth.
The PCHealth file is in my recycle bin but it wont let me restore it, copy it, or move it. I cannot do searches, my taskbar disappears when I start the computer, system restore won't run, and it starts extremely slow (and other odd behavior). All of this started since I deleted that file.
I attempted to fix the problem by doing this:
run and type:- %systemroot%\inf folder and locate the
PCHealth.inf file (might show as PCHealth in Windows Explorer). Right-click the file and choose "Install".
I had many missing files and copied the missing ones from another computer and finished the above installation. But when it completed I got the message:
C:\windows\system32\Cmd.com is not a valid win32 application.
This computer was sluggish when I got it, and now it is much worse! I am scared to tell me nephew that I ruined his computer. Can this computer be saved?
p.s. I don't have the windows xp disks to reinstall windows. I would be so grateful for some help. Thank you.
