Hi there,

I have somehow managed to lose regedit from my system.

In the past few days, I've downloaded a bunch of registry fixes, spyware programs, anti-virus software, etc etc, and I've managed to fix a host of problems but still no regedit solution *lol*

This morning I downloaded and ran TDS-3 Professional (which I got from this site - thanks) and the log confirmed that while there was no detectable trojan/s, the following files are missing:
12:04:58 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe
12:04:59 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\cmd.exe
12:05:01 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\netstat.exe

12:05:03 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\drwtsn32.exe
12:05:04 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\rundll32.exe

12:05:07 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\winlogon.exe
12:05:08 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\regedt32.exe
12:05:09 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\netmsg.dll
12:05:10 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System\winsock.dll
12:05:12 [CRC32] Test finished.

And following is my "Hijack This" log:

I would be eternally gratefull if someone could have a squizz and let me know how I can fix this, preferably without having to re-install my OS.

I cannot seem to find a solution on the Net that I can understand.

Thanks :tazz:

Hi foxinsox

First I Hope you have either your Windows Installation CD or have the cab files stored on your Hard Drive. If not, we'll have to think of something else.

If you do follow the advice below.
  • Click Start and then Run and then type sfc into Run
  • In the System File Checker Window click Extract One file from Installation Disk
  • Type in the name of the file you wish to extract, Regedit.exe for example and Click Start
  • A window will popup, in the Restore from edit box click Browse and navigate to your Win CD or the location of your win cab files
  • In the Save file in click Browse and navigate to the location the file belongs in. In the regedit case C:\WINDOWS\
  • Click OK and then click OK when ask about backup
  • Do this for every lost file.
let us know if it doesn't work and for which file it failed. If you don't have a windows CD and don't know where your cab files are or if you have them, look in c:\windows\options or c:\cab. If that fails try Find and then search for *.cab.
I only see a few minor problems in your HJT log, but I merely glanced thru it. Let see if we can fix the missing file problem first and then we'll deal with the minor issues I see. Geek U students aren't allowed to analyse HJT logs for good reason we're merely learning and have to demonstrate the needed skill and knowledge first. Bad advice could hurt. So I'll probably have to ask a Malware Expert here to glance thru it.

Hoping this helps. :tazz:

Thanks StartHawk, reply is appreciated.

Alas, we have stumbled, perhaps fatally, at the first hurdle because when I type sfc into the run box, I get the same response back as i do when I type in regedit; that is: Windows cannot find sfc. You may have typed the name incorrectly in the run dialog, yadda, yadda, yadda.

That said, my CAB folder is present and has a whole buncha stuff in it. But none called regedit, that I can see.

If I have to re-format, I might just go ahead and upgrade to XP, assuming I won't lose all my applications and whatnot *sobs*
