Ok, so I quarantined that bad proxy, but was that the same thing as the proxy issue we got rid of earlier on in this thread?

 

I tried Secunia again after quarantining the bad proxy but it still didn't work so I went ahead with FileHippo.  So I think that's everything for now.  Anything esle we need to do at this point?

Not exactly. In Post#36 we identified the following:

[PUM.Proxy] HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings | ProxyServer : http=127.0.0.1:5555  -> Found

 

Malwarebytes found the following one.

HKU\S-1-5-18-{ED1FC765-E35E-4C3D-BF15-2C2B11260CE4}-0\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS|ProxyServer, http=127.0.0.1:5555

 

Very similar but different. Nice catch by the way.

Nope, that's it. Thanks for sticking with me. Are you OK for me to close this topic?

I haven't encountered any new issues related to this problem.  However, I recently tried to install an HP printer software and received a fatal error involving the following message, "Key not valid for use in specified state."  I did some research online and found that this error message is not unique to HP software installs but can occur for any software install if there are other issues on the machine.  I've installed this same software before on this same machine without issue so I'm wondering if during all the clean up we did, changes were made to the registry, windows installer, administrator rights, etc., that might be causing this error?

Anything is possible I guess. I would try the following first.

 

http://uhesse.com/20...pecified-state/

 

Remove the Update that is mentioned and reboot. Then immediately try to install the software.

 

If that doesn't work, try running the following Microsoft Fix-It and then try installing.

http://support.micro..._and_uninstall/

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

If neither of the previous options work then one more item to try is the following.

 

1. Copy the RSA folder from C:\Users\Kwong\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA  to your desktop as a backup.

2. Delete the contents of the RSA folder located at C:\Users\Kwong\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA 

3. Try the install again.
