Hi, and thank you ahead of time for reading this.

Let me start off by trying to explain some of my problems. A bunch of my programs can not be uninstalled. I tried and an error pop ups, and on its window bar it says NSIS Error. Not so sure what it is tbh. Recently installed newest version of Winamp, and right after that I see it also installed eMusic something blah blah, so I went to control panel to try to uninstall it, but to my surprise, I am unable to open Control Panel. What happens is, I would click on it from the Start menu, the screen would go to the color of my desktop color w/o any icons, toolbars, and 1 or 2 seconds later it goes back to whatever i would have opened. It also seems that when this happens, windows would act as if it had just rebooted. I say this because I had gone to Safe mode to see if i can open up control panel. It doesnt, and after the screen comes back, the safe mode window pops up every time. Other then these problems, and the random popup, I can't think of much else that is wrong.

I have tried numerous spyware removal programs, virus scans. Seems like whatever it is, it's just not going away. The least thing I would want to do is reinstall Windows.

It sounds as if the NSIS isnatller has taken over thye uninstall hook for applicvations that were installed with other utilities.

First download and run:
http://support.micro...kb;en-us;290301

Let me know which programs listed there will give you the NSIS error when you tryto uninstall them.

Download CWShredder from http://www.trendmicro.com/cwshredder/
Use the Fix button.

Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

O23 - Service: Command Service (cmdService) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\U21va2Vy\command.exe (file missing)

Click Start > Run type services.msc > OK
In the list of services find:
Command Service
Rightclick that line and choose Properties.
On the General tab Stop and set the service to disabled.
In HijackThis click Config > Misc Tools > Delete an NT service
In the dialog box paste: cmdService

Then reboot and post a new HijackThis log along with the other information I asked for.

Thank you for the reply, and here are the info.

I have downloaded the Windows Installer Clean Up program. After running it, I have first uninstalled 2 games and MSN Messanger. Nothing else I want to or know if I need to uninstall on the list are:

(All Users) Adobe Reader 6.0.1 [0006.000.001]
(All Users) J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 4 [1.5.0.40]
(All Users) Marvell Miniport Driver [6.28]
(All Users) Virtual Cable Tester [1.030]
(All Users) WebFlders XP [9.50.6513]
(All Users) Windows Genuine Advantage v1.3.0254.0 [1.3.0254.0]
Windows Installer Clean Up [2.05.00.0000]

I have downloaded CWShredder and nothing was detected. I have tried to run spysweeper but got a blue screen error a couple of times in the middle of it.

Interesting that last bit.

Can you surf to http://virusscan.jotti.org/
Upload C:\windows\system32\wuauclt.dll
and let me know the results.

Normally this infection would show up as an O15 line in HijackThis.

Ran the scan and everything showed up as clean, or rather, nothing found. I had tried a couple other files as well and all seem to be clean. I also noticed a wuaaclt1.dll, not sure if it is supposed to be there.

When last you asked me to run Windows Install Clean, I forgot to note that I do not see all the programs which I would otherwise have in the actual program uninstall from within the Control Panel.

Mostly everything seems to run fine, but afraid maybe there's something there, and one thing that bugs me is a pop up from windows.

Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I proceed to close the window and after about 10 seconds or so it pops up again. It is continuous.

Download WinPFind.zip and unzip the contents to the C:\ folder.

Start in Safe Mode Using the F8 method:
  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the boot menu appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Safe Mode menu item.
  • Press the Enter key.
Locate the c:\winpfind\winpfind.exe file and double-click it to run it. Now click the Start Scan button to begin the scan.

When the scan is complete reboot normally and post the WinPFind.txt file (located in the WinPFind folder)

Good job. :tazz:


Copy the part in bold below into notepad and save it as Conmenu.reg
Set Filetype to "all files"

REGEDIT4

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\mgsyyqsx]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{52b1b548-7b07-4af5-a982-a875e2c98fd2}]


We will use that file later on.

*Click Here to download Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\3s7jpl5v.ini
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\8t1r5ive.ini
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\9c0u4tv1.ini
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\qk8pbilp.ini
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\tbqoje5q.ini
C:\WINDOWS\system32\kgqmm.dll

*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

While your computer is restarting, tap the F8 key continually until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, then hit enter.

Doubleclick the ConMenu.reg file and confirm you want to merge it with the registry.

Then boot back to normal and post a new HijackThis log.

To be perfectly honest I dont see or feel anything different with the computer at the moment. Not that this is good or bad I just still see the same things not working correctly as before, for example, not being able to access control panel or the security alert screen (The one you get, i assume, after SP2 is installed). I get a virus popup from avast. When i run a scan of the comp it doesn't detect anything wrong. Though I am sure the things removed helped with things I do not see :)

Also I still get an error popup from windows saying Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. I proceed to close the window and after about 10 seconds or so it pops up again. It is continuous. :tazz:

And thanks for taking your time to deal with my problems :)

I still distrust C:\windows\system32\wuauclt.dll because of the symptoms you are having. But I don't understand is how Avast recognizes it on your system and the scanners at jotti's site don't. :tazz:

Can you have this file scanned at jotti's as well:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\vgactl.cpl

Let me know the results.

I'll see if I can dig up any new info on this.

Oh. I'd love to have a look at that little bugger.
Can you surf to:
http://www.thespykil...x.php?topic=5.0
Follow the instructions there to upload that file.
  • Then download the Registry Search Tool.
  • Unzip the contents of RegSrch.zip to a convenient location.
  • Double-click on RegSrch.vbs.
  • If you have an anti-virus installed it might prompt you about a running script. Please ignore this warning and allow the script to run.
  • In the "Enter search string (case insensitive) and click OK..." box paste this string:
    • vgactl
  • Click "OK" to search the registry for that string.
  • Wait for a few minutes while it completes the search.
  • Click "OK" to open the results in WordPad.
  • Copy and paste the entire results into your next post.

/***************************************************/

I have been playing around with some of the .cpl files and went thru (I think) all of the *.cpl files in the windows/system32 folder, checked the properties and found that vgactl.cpl and skvctcp.cpl were not Microsoft files (or Apple, Nvidia, etc), and it doesn't show which company it belonged to. So I had moved it to a temp folder. After that, I was immediately able to get into Control Panel. I do not know why it caused (if it even did) Avast to show wuauctl to have the Qoologic-t. I will reboot now and see how it goes and give you an update :)

Another edit after reboot.

Still have the popup window saying IE encountered a problem and needs to close. Who knows, maybe that's not due to a malware :tazz:

Went into Control Panel and most of the programs there aren't uninstalling due to NSIS error, unins000 file not found, or this one program which I did not install, called Command, simply blinks when I hit remove, and stays there. Maybe Ill try to put a couple of screen shots so you can see.

Got some screen shots to go with what I am saying:

This is the Command program I had mentioned earlier.

And this is the error I get when I try to uninstall it.

This is the Internet Explorer popup error I was talking about.
