Please help me out! I have been browsing and working on this for about a week and nothing fixed!
(initially I had more problems like browsing the web, spitting out http errors and specified method is not supported, or just saying no-output, outlook was not retrieving email kept asking me for my username and password and although they were correct nothing happened --- I have fixed those.) NOW --->
It seems that I cannot open regedit, cmd, regedt32, and other exes from the Start/Run.
When I type it in it seems like soft-rebooting my system or opening the My Documents folder.
I have run any antivirus program I could find. I have Norton Antivirus 360 installed. Nothing. Malwarebytes Anti-malware, Spybot, Ad-aware from Lavasoft, escan... nothing! I also run the Kaspersky Online Scanner (twice) nothing. Also the NOD32 online scanner... nothing.
I did all these from Safe mode while have system restore unchecked.
Hijackthis does not show anything suspicious (as fas as I can tell).
I have also run the Symantec's removal tool for Erkez.b but nothing found to fix.
To be precise, Malwarebytes does not update. I updated to the latest rules.ref from another PC and put it in mine.
Also, I cannot access Mcafee's websites. Still getting error HTTP 505 or 400.
However, when I run every 1-2 hours (while still working on the problem) the Norton antivirus it keeps finding a tracking cookie saying that the risk is low and when I look up the details it always says:
Cookie: [email protected]
cookie: [email protected]
couple of other cookies to some other boggus (to me) sites
cookie: Orpan cleanup.
WINPATROL from time to time asks me if I will allow a change for file type .scr from "%1" to "%1 /s".
Please let me know what further info I can provide to get some advice on this.
Your help is much appreciated!
