I have a problem with my XP installation. I think there's something damaged in the registry. Here are a few of the sympthoms:

* Regedit closes during a search, no warning, no error it's just gone
* addaware crashes durings the scan
* Bazooka gives an error after hitting the scan button 'Unexpetected exeption. Error while enumerating a registry key using RegEnumKey. Entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects. System error Message: The extended properties are inconsistent'
The system error message is translated from Dutch so this may not be the right wording.
* Cumulus Photo cataloging software will not install. It quit during the installation without warning or error
Windows SP2 will not install. I get some fatal exception. I do not have the details of this now.

All things mentioned above work when the computer is running in save mode.

Can anyone help here?

Hi Fianke. Welcome to GTG. :tazz:

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

It sounds as if you have a virus - not sure though. Needed to know what the error said. But try this in the meantime.

Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Reboot

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

The problem is still there. I have a feeling that there are loads of spyware active but cannot figure out how to remove it. I ran Adaware and spybot several times but it keeps coming back after rebooting. Anyway here's the new log file:

I have no idea were the WareOut stuff came from , it popped up after I rebooted. The housecall found 3 virusses and another 37 or so which are related to java and could not be removed. These were rated as not dangerous though.

I hope you can help, cause I get the feeling I'm in for a fresh install of my system.

Regedit still exits when searching as does the Cumulus during installation. Adaware freezes when searching the registry. It does work in safe mode. It freezes when searching HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE/.. Anything more I can do?

Almost there!

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [clfmon.exe] clfmon.exe (NOT the legitimate ctfmon.exe)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [dllhostxp.exe] dllhostxp.exe

Please reboot into safe mode (continually tap the F8 key while your system is starting, select Safe Mode from the menu).
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\System32\clfmon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\dllhostxp.exe

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. :tazz:
