Hi! I have been having a problem with WinFixer and WinAntiSpy for about 2 weeks. (I see they are popular topics) I have gone through the "list" of things to do with a few minor snags, that hopefully someone can help me with. I am fairly new to computers, so bare with me :tazz:

~I installed cleanup and ran it
~I attempted to install Ad-aware SE and after downloading it, recieved this message "Could not Intitalize Installation. File size expected 2855080. Size returned 1840248. Have no clue why it would not install or run :)
~I Installed CWShredder and ran it
~I already had Spybot and I updated it and scanned it. Fixed problems
~I already have Norton Internet Security. Did a full update and Scan
~ I rebooted
~ Downloaded HiJack This and here are the results:

Welcome Beck to Geeks to Go!

***

Download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Place the following lines (complete paths) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox, and click the red button with the white X on it after each

  • Once in safe mode open the VundoFix folder and doubleclick on KillVundo.bat

Silly question from a person who should probably not own a computer:

How do I find the Hijack program and how would I make that folder permanent? I made a new folder, but now I am lost again.
I looked for the temp folder, but I can't find it :tazz:

Edited to add, I think I found it, but it says i can't open it, because it needs to know what program created it. Did I do something wrong when downloading it?

:hangsheadinshame:

Edited again: I think I figured it out

I can't seem to get my computer into safe mode. I reboot and start tapping the F8 button continuously. No menu ever pops up. How long should I tap, and am I doing something wrong?

Here's how to boot to safe mode:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:
http://www.pchell.co.../safemode.shtml
Some computers use F5 instead of F8.

Couple of questions:
I was able to get my computer into safe mode. It then asked if I should be logged in under as Administrator, or My name. Does it matter which one I pick?

Also~
I chose Administrator and clicked on KillVondo.Bat. The warning screen popped up, and I hit enter. I entered C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\comnut.dll
and then hit enter, F6, and enter again, first I got a pop up from Norton saying that a malicious script has been detected. I assumed it was just the Vundo, so I selected to "allow once" and I got this message:

Script:C:/Documents and Settings/My name/Desktop starthjt.vbs.

Line: 3

Char: 2

Error: The system cannot find the file specified

Code 80070002

Source (null)


I hit a key, and got the blue screen of death. It did not go away, so I unplugged the computer, and here I am. When starting up the computer again, Norton flashed saying it was off, and told me to click on the icon on my tool bar, so I did.

Am I in completely over my head, and should I just call someone to come fix this? I'm really afraid that I am going to screw up the computer.

So you're back in normal mode now?

I think we can do this together, just follow my lead.

Disable Norton. Then rerun the advise. We should let the entire script run once.

Don't move on, just take it one step at the time.



EDIT:

Just saw you first respons.

Silly question from a person who should probably not own a computer

First of all, there are no silly questions. The questions you don't ask often present a problem.

Anybody can own a computer and have a good time working with them. You just have to learn how.

I'm pretty sure I am in normal mode. When you say rerun the advise and let the entire script run, are you talking about just going through all of the steps again?

Should I start at Killbox again, or start by going into safemode and trying VundoFix?

If I do go into safe mode, does it matter if I log on as Administrator or my name?

Could the trouble be because I think I made a folder for HijackThis, when I actually haven't? Becuase That is when it seemed to go wrong, when Vundo was trying to open the Hijack.

Also, when I double click on the folder for Hijack that I made, It says that Windows can't open this file, and that it needs to know who created it. Is that supposed to happen?
I'm not sure why I could use it before, and not now :tazz:

Another question (trying to problem solve) I did not download Windows SP1a, because I thought that since I have Windows XP already, I did not need it. Am I wrong ?

I'm not sure what went wrong there. Let's start again. Remove the folder you made and everything in it.

------

Please download the latest version of HiJack This. Click here to download the latest version (1.99.1). Please save it in a permanent folder (such as C:\HJT). This is to ensure that backups are saved and accessible in the event you should need it. Follow the instructions below if you are unsure how to save it in a permanent folder:

1.) Click on the link to download HiJackThis.exe.
2.) When it pulls up the box (for you to pick a location to save the file), click on the pulldown menu and select "[C:]".
3.) Click on the button to "create new folder" and name the folder HiJackThis
4.) Double click on the folder you just made (to go into the folder) and click "save" on the bottom of the box.


Another question (trying to problem solve) I did not download Windows SP1a, because I thought that since I have Windows XP already, I did not need it. Am I wrong ?

View Post

You really need at least SP1a and when we are done I advise you to update fully.

XP is like a house you bought. During use you find holes in it. SP1a fixes some of those. SP2 fixes more. Critical updates are made to fixe holes now, rather than wait for a bunch of holes.


If you did the killbox part already, move on to the safe mode part and start there.

I have hijack downloaded, Finally. (where is the smiley with the bag over it's head?)

I attempted to download SP1a, and I recieved the message "Cannot display window you are trying to view. Error code 0x80072F76
I have contacted Windows to try to figure out why, and I am waiting for an answer.

I'm now going to turn off Norton, and try again

Thank You for all of your help

I sucessfully reached safe mode, and double clicked KillVundoBat. I entered the file path and after clicking enter, F6, enter, I received the message "File path you entered does not seem to exist. Please check that you have the correct file path" I rebooted and tried it agin 3 times, with no success, and receiving the same message. The File Path I am using is:


C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\comnut.dll


Should I run another hijack log?

Please do.

Don't update to SP2 yet, wait 'till we cleaned up.
