As aswMBR won't run, I need to run RogueKiller to comfirm that the rootkit partition has gone.
I had already ran RK - why am I running again, if you don't mind.
We will just leave them alone. I don't condone the use of registry cleaners because they can be extremly dangerous in the hands of a novice user. Deleting the wrong entries can render a PC unusable and we don't want to be in a position of helping a user recover from that. There is also no evidence that cleaning out the registry has any effect on the overall speed of a PC.
Prior to connecting with Geekstogo and yourself, I had run a registry clean and there were a lot of Reg keys that had error and I deleted them; HOWEVER I did save before I deleted and can put the REG keys back. DO YOU THINK IT's NECESSARY?
When you save the file a small window should pop up. At the bottom should be a Save as Type box. Click on the arrow at the end of the box and select All Files from the menu.
What do you mean set the Save as type to All Files before saving it.
We need to disable Spybot S&D's "TeaTimer".
TeaTimer works by preventing ANY changes to the system. It will attempt to undo any fixes we run, because it blocks these fixes from running.
In order to safeguard your system from problems that can be brought on by a half finished fix, we need to disable TeaTimer. We can re-enable it when we're done if you like.
