I've been trying to figure out whats wrong with my PC.

My Internet explorer does not work, however firefox does.

My anti-virus and most other programs are not able to update.

Spybot and partypoker installations give me a
'The application failed to initialize properly 0xc000005' error
and then close themselves out

I tried smitrem, kaspersky anti-vir, macafee,adaware,spybot(failing now).

My internet explorer ( title of the page is "invalid syntax error") comes up as :

-------

The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for might have been removed or had its name changed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Open the www.ebay.com home page, and then look for links to the information you want.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

If you still cannot open the page, click the Internet Explorer
Search button to look for similar sites.

Welcome to GTG.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido (only if you have Windows 2000 or XP). If you didn't, do them now. For more information, go to http://www.greyknigh...com/spyware.htm

Make sure to close any open browsers. Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):

O2 - BHO: WinStat - {EE02B99B-1D55-48bc-B8DB-649A42CE45F6} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\WinStat12.dll (file missing)
O16 - DPF: {41F17733-B041-4099-A042-B518BB6A408C} - http://a1540.g.akama...meInstaller.exe
O16 - DPF: {65E7DB1D-0101-4100-BD66-C5C78C917F93} - http://install.wildt...lim/install.cab
O16 - DPF: {D8A8A7F1-53EF-41F2-B44D-F3E2E595DC27} - ms-its:mhtml:file://C:\MAIN.MHT!http://69.50.172.102...hm::/update.exe


Delete the following Files/Folders (delete folders if no filename is specified) according to their directory (if none, just do a search for them) and delete them if they exist:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\WinStat12.dll

Restart and run BOTH these scans:

Run an online virus scan at TrendMicro http://uk.trendmicro...call_launch.php. Just follow the instructions on the site to run the free online scan. If any viruses/trojans are detected, try to delete or clean them in that site. If any are not cleanable, copy and paste the infected files here. You may also use Panda ActiveScan at http://www.pandasoft...ucts/activescan. Post the log from the Panda scan here.

Restart and run a new HijackThis scan. Save the log file and post it here along with the Panda scan.

I ran through your steps as best as possible, .. starting with the standard spyware removal
adaware runs, however spybot gives me that 0xc0000005 error.
I ran hijack this and removed the ones specified.

There were 5 winstat files with the hidden files shown.
winstat10.dll
winstat10
winstat11.dll
winstat11
winstat12 (not .dll?)

I deleted winstat12...
and I was unsure if the other ones were important or also part of it, so I cut them from the sys 32 folder
and pasted them elsewhere incase I needed to replace them.

I wanted to run pandascan, however, I can only access the internet with firefox, and it seems that it is
unsupported by online virus scans.

I still am unable to use Internet Explorer, and some programs (spybot,partypoker installation) still give me the
"'The application failed to initialize properly 0xc000005'" error




These 2 programs continually give themselves the ability to run on startup

NvCpl RUNDLL.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run

ctfmon C:\WINDOWS\System32\ctfmon.exe

Copy everything in the quote box below (Starting with REGEDIT4) and paste it into notepad. Go up to "File > Save As" and click the drop-down box to change the 'Save As Type' to 'All Files'. Save it as look.bat on your desktop.

regedit /e search.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\Run"
type search.txt>>look.txt
del search.txt
dir %SystemDrive%\*ndw*lib.dll /a h /s >> look.txt
start notepad look.txt

Double-click look.bat on your desktop. It will scan your computer and when complete a notepad will open up. Please copy the contents of that notepad and paste it here.
