please visit Windows security and critical updates and get all the updates and patches and install them on your PC.

Do not reboot the PC yet !!!!


download a copy of luna.msstyles here:
http://www.geekstogo...pe=post&id=3166


Unzip it and MOVE the luna.msstyles which is present in that folder you unzipped to next folder: C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes\Luna
Don't move it to anywhere else than that folder!

When moved it there, rightclick on your desktop > properties ... and look if Windows XPstyle is now present again. Choose apply and OK.

If not, reboot first, and try again to select Windows XPstyle

Reboot the PC.


Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how it goes

Windows update is telling me that my product key wont pass validation, and therefore it wont give me any new updates. I know that I previously installed all the updates available for service pack 1, and it let me update to service pack 1a. Guess I cant do anything else now tho.

The taskbar is back to XP style now. MUCH BETTER!

I think my only complaint now is that everytime I boot the computer Windows installer loads and tries to resume a previous setup of Internet Explorer. It wont let me get rid of it.

I also see a fair amount of things on the HJT log that looks like it could have been with the original virus. For example the Empire poker... actually i guess it got rid of the other stuff... before there were also a bunch of [bleep] websites under trusted zones. Otherwise computer is running much better!!

Actually I do have another problem.... I use Compuserve, and now when I try to load compuserve it opens, I can enter my password it starts to connect, and then the program dissappears. Basically like it exited by itself, and completely dissappeared. I checked the task manager and it was gone, I tried it again, and same thing!

No idea!!

I was under the impression that it should be a legal copy.... I believe its the same copy that came with the computer...

But my brother uses this computer also, so I guess im not 100% sure.

Download Windows Installer CleanUp.

Save it on your desktop and run it to extract the files and save them on your desktop.

In case you have any issues with extracting the files, then there is a fix for it.


The trouble with developing windows installers is that sometimes they crash leaving the install partially finished. Any attempt to run an install after that results in the dreaded "Another installation is already in progress" message. Now you probably want to run an installer at some point again in the future, but until you clean up the install that crashed, you can't (I believe that it an install mutex is locked, among other things) .

So the Windows Installer Clean Up Utility is you friend. Trouble is the Windows Installer Clean Up utility comes as a windows install. So when you try to install it you are just going to get "Another installation is already in progress".

Digging a little deeper you may learn that the cleanup utility is just an app called msicuu.exe which is a front end to msizap.exe. You can extract both from the Windows Installer Cab file (msicuu2.exe) with a tool like WinRAR, or it is available with the support tools for the Windows OS you are using (usually on the install CD under support\tools or dowloadable from the web). That gets around the need to run the install.

[It also forms part of the Platform SDK Components for Windows Installer Developers (with a lot of other useful tools for installer work like Orca.exe which allows you to view msi files)].


Run msicuu2.exe. It will give you a list of programs.

Please give me the list of items it finds.

You had said earlier that Internet Explorer was being installed (and it hangs without completing it). However IE is not listed here.

Are you still getting the installation error ???


Please click on Start ---> Settings ---> Control panel.

Double click on Administrative Tools ---> Computer Management.

Now click on System Tools ---> Event Viewer ---> System.

can you see if there are any errors in the recent past (last 1 day preferably)??

If there are any errors, give me the details of them.

Also check for any error listings under Application and Security under Event Viewer.
