Preferred Solution: Solved: How is data rendered unforgeable after its digitally signed?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Solved: How is data rendered unforgeable after its digitally signed?

If I remember correctly, it's has like a code, so it will know who is legit and whos not.

They say too much knowledge can be a dangerous thing. I'm probably living proof of that.. someone told me how to run a Microsoft diagnostic that shows which system files do not contain digital signatures. According to the scan, 35 of my files are suspect. Should I be concerned about this? I religiously scan for viruses, spyware and rootkits using three different apps for each. Everything is supposed to be okay. Here is the list of unsigned system files:

Answer:[SOLVED] System Files Not Digitally Signed

Hi TomGab and welcome to TSf !

You don't have to worry about system files that are not digitally signed, it only means microsoft hasn't run extensive tests on them. The file owner (nvidia for most of your nvxxx.dll files for instance) will have tested them to make sure they would work fine with XP so you shouldn't have any problem.

I'm looking at my DirectX Diagnostic tool and it says for a few things
"The file ati2dvag.dll is not digitally signed" under Video, and "The file RtkHDAud.sys is not digitally signed" under sound 1 and 2. is this a serious problem? it might help solve why I've had a few crashes when playing games maybe? If anyone can help I will be very grateful, especially by telling me how to get these "signed"

Answer:Not Digitally signed?

I know very little about this kind of stuff but I think it just means it's a driver that hasn't been registered with Microsoft, or something along those lines. I don't believe it affects the operation of the thing.

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

Dear All,
A vendor website sporadically release's MSI's which are digitally signed (plugins to run the content). These are required for the website to function.
Users are more in number so we can't manually install the MSI and time is a constraint.
Packaging / Repackaging is not a quick solution
App-locker doesn't bypass UAC, AUTO IT didn't help, Manifest and shim are only for Exe's.
We are looking for a solution where in since these are digitally signed MSI's Users should be able to install them automatically without being asked for the credentials.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

I have had to reinstall Windows 7 64-bit edition, and when I go to install PCWizard or Everest Home Edition, I keep getting an error about drivers not being digitally signed, and Windows will not install them. Before I reinstalled Windows 7, I had both of these programs running just fine. Is there anyway I can change the fact that Windows 7 will let me install those drivers?

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers?

The only way for 64 bit versions of Vista or Win7 to work without digitally signed drivers is to start them up using F8 to get teh Advanced Startup and disable the Digitally Signed Driver service.

If you had them working before did you make sure all your drivers now are current?

Hey,

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?
 

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

G'day. I'm trying to install my old VisionPLus DVB-T card into a Windows 7 O/S box and it won't recognise any of the old drivers. When I try to install the TwinHan Digital tv software, Windows can't/ won't install them.

I've downloaded and tried the latest (DigitalTV 3.4 Build 19-02_20090212) and windows comes up with "Driver not found". I've tried to install in compatability mode but still no good.

When installing the above, it identifies my card as “PCI CX-87A with MCU DVB-S/-C/-T/ATSC card”.

Out of all the available drivers on Twinhan's site, which would be the best for my card?

The one written for Vista would be my choice, probably not one for W7 yet, may never be.

Looks like MS ha removed a way to disable unsigned drivers protection in Vista64, so probably is the same for 7

Looks like unsigned drivers are a no go for x64 Vista and Windows 7, well there are some workarounds in the article above, sounds like a hassle.

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

Hi all, hoping this is the right subforum

I built a HTPC a few years ago and it had suited my needs fine. Relevant parts used are:
i3-3225 CPU,Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB,Asus P8-H77 Pro,2 x 4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 1600 RAM,Samsung 830 Series 64Gb SSD (OS HDD),WD Cavier Green 2TB (Media HDD),

I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error? I have downloaded the W10 upgrade files numerous times, redownloaded the media creation tool, set clean boot, even tried downloading the upgrade and creating a usb drive with it from a different PC but same error.

Is there perhaps some upgrades that I should make my HTPC?

Did you tried to remove the drive in the device manager?? That helps sometimes, because windows reinstalls in the most cases the previously removed (deleted) hardware.

Since when does the problem occur that your drive cannot be recognized?

From what I know if these progams are running and they aren't digitally signed then they are most likely a form of a virus. I can manually find the official conhost.exe from windows/system32 and run it, that creates a separate instance of it running, making two, the official and the supposed virus. Neither of the supposed virus executables do not open any properties when I right click and select properties from the task manager, which is another red flag. I ran a fully updated malwarebytes scan and an avast scan outside of windows and had no returns of an infection. I could not find the location of the virus executables and I am looking for some help.

Why is everyone saying Vista 64-bit won't install unsigned drivers? I installed the latest beta driver from nvidia and Vista warned that it was unsigned but gave me an option to install anyway.

Am I missing something/misinterpretting this or was this only the case in the Beta/RC verisons of Vista and everyone keeps bringing it up (kind of like requiring UAC for changing backgrounds; people still say Vista does it)?
 

Answer:Digitally signed drivers required under Vista 64-bit?

Short answer: The effects of FUD.

Long answer: The truth is, it was never stated on any official documents that Vista wouldn't accept unsigned drivers. The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Hi

The last few times I started my computer, the system comes with the warning:

"Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Driver: Broadcom NetDetect Driver
Service: BASFND
Publisher: Broadcom Corporation
Location: C:\Program Files\Bra...\BASFND.sys"

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

The problem is that I have no idea of which program or hardware is using this driver. All the drivers I have installed in my computer are from the computer manufacturer.
I have also been at Broadcoms homepage and there is plenty of things to download there. But I dont want to ruin anything.

Suggestions on what to do?

System: Windows Vista 64
 

Answer:Windows requires a digitally signed driver

Broadcom is your onboard ethernet, I don't see why it would suddenly complain unless there was an update.:confused You can disable driver signing but it only cures the symptom and not the cause.

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install windows and I have a MSI 890FXA-GD70 [product page] that is setup with a functioning RAID 0 configuration. My issue is when I get to the step where you select your hard drive, it doesn't show up.

So I click "Load Drivers" and select the x64 raid driver I got from MSI. It shows up, then I click next and then the error message comes up: "To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers....etc"

I restarted and spammed f8 to get into advance startup options. I selected "Disable digital driver signing"

However that did not fix the problem.

Does anyone have any tips or a solution?

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

Hello,
I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

I am experiencing major problems with one of my home PC's. I am running Windows XP Home Edition c/w SP3.

It began today with my AVG (Free Edition) detecting numerous trojans on this machine. AVG identified them as various versions of Trojan:Heur.

I have previously removed Malware from one of my PC's with the help of this forum, so I began the removal procedure by following the "Read and Run Me First" Thread. I was able to install and run SuperAntiSpyware and obtain a log, and I was also able to install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and obtain a log. Both applications discovered and cleaned some malicious items from my machine.

Here is where I ran into problems...

When my PC went through a re-boot after the Anti-Malware, it came up with a black screen with a small Windows box in the center, requiring me to logon with a userid and password. This has never come up on this machine before (this machine is not password protected). I was able to log on with the default user and no password. However, the following message box immediately came up:

So I have proceeded with doing this. This thread can be closed.

Windows Media Player will therefore switch to reading your CD drive in analog mode. Your CDs will play, but the following items will not work when playing CDs: Visualizations, SRS Wow effect, Graphic Equalizer.

Could someone please explain what's happening all of a sudden? WMP was playing fine until recently.

Someone suggested that I change my drive designations back to default. I recently switched letter designations for my burner and my DVD-ROM drive. I attempted to switch them back by going to Device Manager but was unable to. My CF Card reader had taken over one of the previous letter designations of one of the other two drives. So I went into Device Manager to straighten things out, but now I can't even find my CF Card reader listed. It was there before! In fact, it still works, but for some reason it's not showing up in Device Manager. I find all of this really confusing. If I could find it perhaps I could get the three letter designations back to what they ought to be, and maybe then WMP would work properly.

I would really appreciate help with this very annoying problem.

I suppose this is yet another reminder that if one does not continuously back up saved information, they will regret it.

My laptop has been, against my will, trying to update itself to Windows 8.1. It has been going through multiple installations, rendering it completely inopperable for hours. Then the power goes out on it. And it does a bunch of other things, possibly including system restore. I'll be entirely honest; it's 11 Am right now, and most of this was apparently happening at 4-6, with very little input on my end about it.

Right now, I try to get to my desktop, and most of my files I keep there are completely gone. I fee that a few of the programs that I frequently used and installed stuck around, though, so I had faith that I could get them back some how. Then I see the window in the bottom corner, saying the thread title quote. I did search and found this link, which claims to be a fix. But the first thing I notice is that it says it will delete the corrupted user profile. And since I'm the only user, and that's all of my files, information, and data at risk, I have quite a vested interest in not letting all of that be deleted.

The short stick of the situation: any chance I can find a way to fix this issue and just get things back to the way they were without it deleting all of my stuff?

I don't see the point, complaining to Microsoft about your own mistakes? In signing in to OneNote you have yourself selected to switch your local Windows account to a Microsoft account. What happened next is also not Microsoft's fault; if you trust password managers too much, not remembering your own password, it's your own fault.

Did you create recovery media prior to loading Windows 10? I don't think a BIOS flash is going to help. I suggest trying to restore the system with recovery media, then trying the upgrade again. This device is supported for the Windows 10 upgrade, so Win 10 will work on this system.

I used to have 256 MB of Ram, I knew I needed an upgrade and I just got one recently, a 1 GB RAM DDR2

Now, everything would have worked swimmingly, til I realized it didnt fit. It has 1 indentation where as my old 1 had 2, I thought it meant nothing but there are 2 blocked where the indents would be filled, and without a second indentation I cannot put it in. I have only 2 slots and both have 2 blockers.
Is there anything I can do, like for example get a new slot?
 

Answer:RAM Stick Rendered Unusuable!

You don't have DDR2. You need to get the correct RAM, probably SDRAM. Go to Crucial.com for a free scan and recommendation.

1. When I sign on normally, explorer is stuck to the point where I don't have anything on my desktop to click, I can't open any programs, not even Task Manager. Basically can't do anything, including go on the internet. It's pretty much frozen.
2. In Safe Mode, I can sign on and everything shows up but I can't go on the internet.
3. The loading is extremely slow even though nothing ever ends up working anyway. Spybot was running on reboot and it was on for about 3-4 hours and was only 1/5th done.

Right now, I think I chose Debugging mode and I signed on my name. Explorer did not start up, so I ran firefox.exe in order to do this. I really need help because in this condition I basically can't transfer my important files onto a USB Stick in case this thing gets worse. And I'm sure it's some sort of trojan/malware/virtumonde thing and not my computer.

Also, if it's possible to fix this so that none of this happens on all the names on my computer, that'd be great, since I share this computer with 3 other people. I believe it started up when my sister signed on her name for the first time in a couple of months yesterday. It's the only thing that makes sense to me right now.

I'm sorry if there was more I needed to put in this entry, I can't really use the internet or my computer properly so I just used the DDS log. Thank you so much for your time and assistance.

Hi,

My friend received a forwarded email and this was the first mail for the day, hence was previewed in Outlook. Here is what happened after:

- Symantec AV and Microsoft Essentials detected traces of W32.Downadup and started to furiously delete - this went on for about 15 minutes
- Then when both the AVs quietened a little, the real problem started
- The system stopped responding
- Repeated restarts (after switching-off NOT shutting-down) did not help
- The moment Outlook was opened, the system stopped responding
- Downloaded the W32.Downadup removal tool (D.exe) from the Symantec website (http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-011316-0247-99 ) and ran it
- This removal tool could not find the virus/worm
- Was advised to format and install the new OS - and am trying the same
- Unable to access the PST file now - cannot copy/rename/cut

Now I cannot format my machine and reinstall the OS as I will end up losing all my mails - which is not a very happy situation.

Please advise on how I can retrieve my PST. Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

This is a terribly annoying problem. Whenever I play a game such as Garry's mod which is running on the old source engine and tends to freeze while joining servers, force quitting it with CTRL + ALT + DEL is completely impossible.

The issue is that whenever I press CTRL + ALT + DEL, instead of getting the menu, I get a black screen with a working cursor. The problem I think, is that the game is rendered on top of the menu, making it IMPOSSIBLE to open the task manager or perform any other action.

I noticed, that this behavior with some other games as well.

I would greatly appreciate any support. I feel like I am back in Windows 95 times, where a single frozen application forced me to restart the entire computer.

Thanks.

Your System Specs gives no information about the computer involved so guesses would be insufficient RAM/Random Access Memory, insufficient video memory or simply that the software involved isn't compatible with the computer.

I've tried to boot into safe mode, last know good configuration, even system restore and everytime I get lsass.exe error! I've spent over 4 hours now searching threads via a different unaffected computer, and I've heard all about Sasser and what not. They say to disable the reboot enter the command prompt and type startup -a. Well all I get is a black screen when the lsass.exe error box pops up. I have no options of getting into the command prompt. I've tried booting off of the XP recovery CD, but when I try to recover it returns saying it was unable to detect a hard drive on your system. Even if I try to reinstal XP it says it's unable to find a hard drive. I have a lot of vital documents on this hard drive and I don't want to wipe it and do a fresh reformat and instal!

I had just reformated my computer today, once, after realized I had a pretty intrusive Trojen.Backdoor within my computer, along with the ****** most annoying Results5.google Ad-Ware problem.

So I get everything about right, updated sound drivers, had sound, N.I.C drivers updated.. on the net, installed my anti-virus..

And than I updated my Chipset - before I was even able to click Yes - Restart now my mouse had died, I figured.. wow.. frozen already.. Restarted.. and with no way possible.. was my mouse working again. Keyboard worked fine.

So I updated Chipset / Mouse Went Dead..

Im just NOW back online , and im afraid to update my Chipset in fear of the same problem happening again.

BTW: I tried two different mice, both USB Optical Mouse. 1 HP USB OPTICAL and 1 GIGABYTE Optical Mouse w/ DPI on the fly.

Answer:A Bit Worried ( Mouse Rendered Useless )

Sorry, a little confused here. Are you saying that after you install the chipset drivers the mouse stops working, but a restart fixes the problem? Or that after the chipset update no mice would work?

What motherboard model do you have? Post up the link where you're downloading your chipset drivers from too.

Hi All,

Windows 10 with latest patches on an HP laptop.

Did a search for this and didn't find anything. Whenever I do a video screen capture or render video it's at a slight angle when I play it back. This happens no matter how I'm creating the video - video screen capture or using an app to render some video or editing some video with HandBrake. When I play the video in VLC or some other player it will be at a slight angle. This issue has been happening ever since I got this laptop about 2 yrs ago.

Anyone else experience this problem? How to fix? Thanks,

If needed, feel free to move this post to a more appropriate forum.

Hi. I purchased an Acer laptop loaded with windows 8.1. last year. It is an ES1-512C88M, model no. MS2394. After downloading and installing new software, I seem to have also run the System Healer virus. I suspect other malware other than system healer is also present since it seems the entire GUI interface has been deactivated. I cannot pull up task manager nor access the start menu. whats worse is that I also can't command the computer via safe mode. The virus seems to have locked me out of all avenues to figure out whats wrong with it. This means that I cannot perform some of the preliminary steps suggested in this forum before moving on to actual virus removal. Can someone help me, please?

I have had Eusing Free Registry Cleaner, Adaware (Free Edition), SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot Search & Destroy, McAfee AntiVirus 2010, and CCleaner installed on my computer. Recently all of the scan functions except CCleaner have been made useless. By that I mean that when I try to do a scan, the scan starts but after a brief time the screen goes black and I'm back on my desktop. Consequently, I can't identify whatever has infected my system and also can't get rid of it. It seems that I've picked up some unwanted software that protects itself better than anything that I've previously encountered. I am running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 with Service Pack 2. I found this website when doing a search using the names of the products listed above and adding "scan disabled". Also two names to which Windows has alerted me are Worm.Win32.NetSky and TrojanSPM/LX. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

So recently while browsing around online, I acquired a virus/bot/malware of some kind. It may have been a combination of different infections but it began with random pop-ups and a program called msa.exe that I managed to locate and delete. However, another infection has been disabling ALL of my antivirus. When I try to use Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, AVG, Ad-Aware, Spybot Search & Destroy, or even online scanners such as Panda and F-Secure, it disables them and I often receive a message that includes something about not having the appropriate permission to access these files. Even if I try to delete the file such as Spybot S&D, it says the file is in use. Trend Micro's RUBOTTED tells me I have a bot but the online scanner won't work because it claims I do not have a Java runtime environment, even when I followed the instructions to download it.
Also, I have tried using HiJackThis but it also becomes disabled and shows me the same message.
Can anyone help please?

While online yesterday my avg antivirus (identity protection) suddenly prompted me to quarantine process ipqe.exe. This happened twice. Having done that I realized that both vectorworks and photoshop had stopped working. Both programs were running at the time of the idp alert. Their shortcuts and program file folders are still there but I can't seem to find any .exe files or the like to get them running again.

I scanned my computer with avg but it found nothing. I tried showing hidden files, restart and system restore, nothing worked (system restore won't work in safe mode either)! Today I have rescanned the comp with malewarebytes and avg and both programs found something. Mwb found two files that were sent to quarantine and avg found a trojan called SHeur4.ANLN (I deleted that one from the virus vault). I have tried restoring the computer several times today as well but to no avail. The computer was and is still running fine, and all (?) other programs seems to be working except for photoshop and vectorworks. But I'm still concerned about what may be lurking in my computer and I really need thos programs working! Help please!

I'm now in SuSE Linux because I can't really do anything in Windows right now.

The problem is that I unpackaged something I know I shouldn't have, and it unloaded a bunch of spyware onto my computer.
That is all fine because I have a myriad of remover utilities, SpyBot S&D, Spy Hunter, and a few website blocking utilities. Not to mention, a recently updated version of avs Antivirus.

So I removed all of the malware, spyware, and viruses off my computer using these tools. After I did all of this, Explorer tells me that:

C:\windows\inet20003\services.exe

could not be loaded (the file doesn't exist because one of the spyware removers deleted it), and that the actual services.exe has to close.

I'm getting frustrated.

Things I've tried:

+Rolling back with system restore
+Finding the 'wrong' services.exe file in the registry and deleting it (But I don't want to do that, because, for some reason, backups of the registry can't be made either in safe mode, or in the normal mode...)
+Trying to start msconfig to edit what starts up with my computer, but that won't load.

I'm ready for an F-disk, but I've lost my Windows XP disks and am not about to go and buy another one.

Turns out the trojan deleted some dll that runs Firefox so firefox was dead. I reluctantly used internet explorer to get some answers, using google just wasn't happening and everything was moving incredibly slow. Then the computer froze. I turned it off and then on again.

Hi Folks,

I hope someone can help on this as I am tearing my hair out right now.

Ok I'll keep this as simple as possible, I am experiencing an issue with all video in all media players both streamed and otherwise including game cut scenes. Video plays for a second then freezes and a second later catches up, this continues throughout the duration of the video.

All 3D applications run fine and smoothly even on extreme settings, this only seems to affect pre-rendered video.

So far I have updated graphics drivers, updated directx, installed new codecs and tried running with hardware acceleration both enabled and disabled. No joy in anything I have tried. System was working fine then I installed an SSD for my C Drive. Reinstalled to exactly the same spec as before and now this problem started.

Thank you for reading I hope you can help.
