Question: Urgent help needed !

Windows XP pro sp2
Abit NF7-s
Radeon 9550
AMD 3200+
80gb SATA HD
1gb ram...


Ok, after having to turn off the computer improperly, I got the error message about the Windows\System32\Config\System file missing or corrupt.
Apparently this happens quite commonly and isn't that hard to fix.

So I put in the xp disk, attempting to use the repair feature.
No repair feature was there, I must have an OEM version or something, but I could use the recovery console.

I follow the Microsoft tech guide to fixing the problem, after doing a chkdsk which unsurprisingly found an error.

The MS guide basically had me delete the corrupt files, and then restart the computer, and after that was done I was supposed to copy the new files from another folder into the system to replace the corrupt ones.

This is where the problem lies...
once the corrupt files were deleted, the recovery console no longer lets me acces it without an administrators password.
Ok, no big deal, I try leaving the pass blank, and then every password which I would have ever used when I installed windows, to no avail.
I have heard that because the system files are corrupt, that the file storing the password could also be corrupt, so the password is never valid.

I go back to the MS help thing and look for a way to get past the password...it says that by using the bootable floppy deal with the 6 floopy disks I can get into recovery console.
(still get the invalid password error)

I try one of those offline progs which reset the password. Surprise surprise, I run into more problems because I am using an 80gb SATA hard drive.
The progs assume that the necessary drivers are already installed, so they never detect my hard drive.

I have a major software design project due next week, so I really, really, need to get it running again without formatting.

(The only other thing I can think of is running the drive as a slave on another system, but I dont have access to another system to do something like that)

Thanks in advance..


I forgot to add, my default user account has no password, and has administrator rights.
Leaving the password blank at recov console still says invalid pass..)

Preferred Solution: Urgent help needed !

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: Urgent help needed !

to runn the repair install
boot from the xp cd and choose install
ignore the first repair option and continue with install
when windows finds the previous installation
then do the repair
if you have upgraded to sp2 it will not offer the repair option and you will have to make a slipstreamed disk to run the repair option with
did you run
chkdsk or chkdsk /r /f
try
admin
as the password

hi All,

I have a small LAN. 2 workstations got infected with 'mmsvc32.exe' file which is a virus according to various antivirus companies. I have upto date norton antivirus but it does not detect it as a virus. I did online scanning from trendmicro that also does not detects it. Then I used 'Hijackthis' and i cleaned it. But it came back again when the machine restarted. I deleted the file from current running process, searched the files on machine and deleted and cleaned the registry also, but no use. It comes back again.

Can anyone suggest me how to get rid of this.

Thanks.

MOTHERBOARD INTEL DG33FB
RAM 2GB TRANSCEND @667MHZ

what i wanna know is , is this sort of temprature normal?
 

Answer:help needed urgent

Does sound a bit high, but it could always be a faulty temp sensor. The CPU and M/B temps sound ok though.

If it has always been that high and your system aint crashing then you should be alright (just out of intrest have you overclocked at all?)

I recently used a program called "RegSeeker" to clean my registry. After I used this my computer started malfuncioning. I couldn't use any things on the start bar like run, help and support. Then I restarted my computer and the windows taskbar and none of the icons on my desktop or the system tray appeared, only the background. I had to press cntrl+alt+delete to run firefox. I created a backup when i cleaned the registry but when i try to restore it it says error accessing registry. I've zipped the backup and uploaded it as it was too big to upload regularly. Please help me I have no idea how to get my pc back to how it was before.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks.

First off, I am sure that I have no virus, trojan, etc.
 
In the last 4-5 days my recycle bin has been acting a little strange.
 
1. Deleted files not showing up in bin but were deleted
2. Files that were in recycle bin could not be deleted, always due to some error
3. The errors are different, but similar:
 
Error Deleting File Or Folder
Cannot remove folder Dc330: access is denied
 
Make sure that the disk is not full or write-protected
and that the file is not in use
 
I have tried many ways to DELETE the Recycle Bin but
even the CMD prompts either cant delete this or will now.
 
This file  C:\RECYCLER
has this in it   S-1-5-21-776561741-1592454029-1801674531-1004
 
It looks like a huge directory with many files are here
One is c:\WINDOWS
It looks like this is my Windows directory
 
Also, when I boot windows I see a black screen. The screen similar to what
you see in booting to safe mode. One entry is Windows. If I wait 30-45 seconds
Windows boots normally
 
This has me worried as I do not want to reinstall windows
 
Thanks in advance
 
Mike
 
 
 

Answer:Urgent - Help Needed

The black screen you are seeing before Windows starts is the 'Boot Options Screen'. I suggest that the next time you boot your computer, assuming you get to this screen, don't just let it time out but use the up and Down arrow keys to select an entry near the bottom 'Start in last known good configuration', then press the 'Enter' key. This should restore your computer to a time before this trouble started.
 
When you select 'Last good config' it can take a few minutes before your computer starts itself - this is normal.

One of the screens is as follows

"Critical System Error"
"Your PC has been infected by spyware. Spyware and other unwanted software refers to programs that perform certain tasks on your computer. This can include installing Pop Up Advertising and Collecting your personal information."

Hello,I'm currently using Windows Vista Home Basic. I've been using it for several months now and this issue has NEVER occurred until yesterday. I went on the internet as usual, without clicking anything or changing anything and I was on my own forum run by (invision power board), and it seems like all the images disappeared  except a few. Now I thought my forum was busted, but I asked several members to view the skin and it works perfectly fine. Even THIS forum, and many others look the same, here is a screenshot: http://img229.imageshack.us/img229/8296/screenar8.jpgSites like http://fmview.com/forums, http://pitch-side.co.uk and many others don't work.

Well I can't picture exactly what is going on there. I have never had a problem with formatting using the XP CD, maybe you selected a wrong option somewehre, hard to say, as far as I know that's pretty independant of what is actually on the hard drive(s) that are in the computer....

Anyhow you could try making a bootdisk win98 and putting format.com and fdisk on it and just doing it that way. Windows XP shoud automatically be able to convert it durring install if you want NTFS.

If your not sure how to make a bootdisk with win98 this is what you do...

1. Create the bootable disk:
Put a floppy disk in your drive. Go to windows explorer->right click on your floppy drive (a:\) -> select format->select the check box that says "system files"->click format->click yes.

2. Add format.com and fdisk on it
Click start->find ->select c:\ ->type in the file you need->click search
(copy it to the floppy):
When you find the file you need, click copy and then paste it onto your floppy disk.

3. Fdisk(wipe out your partition)
Keep the floppy in your drive, restart and wait for it to boot until you see the a:\ prompt. (if it doesn't boot and just boots your OS, try going into the BIOS and changing the boot order so that the floppy drive is before the hard drive).
Now type fdisk and press enter->press y and then enter->select "delete non-dos partition" (or similar, sorry I havn't done it in a wh... Read more

If you have formatted the drive then this is no longer a malware problem. It sounds to me like an issue with the drivers. I suggest you head on over to the software or hardware forum and ask in there, there are more people there who can help you.

However, when I have done this I am still getting a black screen with a blinking curser in the top left hand corner. It would seem that I am still doing something wrong, can someone point me in the right driection please.

Answer:More urgent help needed please

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.
If your MB doesn't have UEFI bios this one: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store is easier to use.

Answer:urgent help needed

Try booting to "Enable VGA mode" from the Windows Advanced Options menu.  From there reset display properties to desired values and reboot to "Normal" mode.Use the <F8> function key during system startup to access the Windows Advanced Options Menu.  Tap the <F8> key once or twice per second as you startup the computer (or immediately after POST completes and screen flashes black prior to displaying Windows XP logo with its processing bar display).From the Windows Advanced Options menu, use the up/down arrow keys to select "Enable VGA mode" and press <Enter> key.

There's a whole bunch of other errors. I press ok like 20 times and they seem to restart over and over again.
I also have the recovery disk but when It loading it gives me this blue screen with C0000135 ( unable to locate component)

Additional info from another thread
I own a emachines "T3522 Destop"
This 'Unable To locate Component' crap is driving me crazy. When I log onto my guest account it gives me this error.
Setup.50.exe cannot find comres.dll. That also happens on the new admin account I created. There's only one account that this doesn't happen to and it my orignal account but on my original account almost all the other programs gives me unable to locate component also such as MSN and others. I even tried to PC restore everything by inserting the emacines operating system disc. When I get to the loading part It gives me a blue screen with c0000135 unable to locate component In PC Restore???

Well, last night I was faffing around with the user accounts, and I deleted a couple. I don't know if this is relevant or not to the problem, but here it is;

I rebooted my computer this morning afer I made changes to the start up, I know it wasn't anything to do with anything I did in there, as I have done that many many many times before.

Before it gave me the logon screen a message box popped up saying that I could not be logged on as my password and domain or something were incorrect. So I clicked ok and it took me to the normal logon screen. There is normally an account for my wife, my sister in law and before I removed them, my two lodgers. The difference was in this that there was only a user account for Administrator. So I tried to log on, but whenever I put in a password I thought it was, it wasn't.

So I tried logging on without a password, and it says I cannot access my account due to account restrictions
Is there a way to fix this?

I know this subject has been posted on here before, but no one has given sufficient answers, so if anyone knows and wants to share the solution, please help me!

Thanks guys and gals

Two problems:

1. Wireless router - I temporarily disabled the wireless ability on my router two weeks ago by accident, so immediately tried to correct it but the family computer wouldn't turn on stupid dell.. I used an ethernet cable to connect to the router and turned wireless back on. I hadn't used the wireless since then as I went on holiday a couple of hours after. Low and behold I get back and wireless isn't working, I have tried restarting the router manually, restarting the router through the control console, reconfiguring the router from factory settings. Wireless just won't work. The router is a belkin G+ router

2. My main desktop now has an exceptionally long boot time it loads up into the bios start screen and then seems to freeze and you can hear it power down ,then 5 minutes later it will continue with boot. It gets frozen between the boot screen and xp screen and after that it is perfectly fine.

I just installed an old game (Sniper Elite) and after installation it asked for a reboot. I did this and got the message that windows couldn't start, this could be down to a change recently made etc etc.

It then said to fix it

1- insert windows disk and reboot
2- select language and click next
3- Choose repair my computer

I did this but when I clicked repair my computer it didn't show any OS in the box to repair! It just says "If you did not see your OS in the list, click load drivers to load drivers for your hard disk"

Yesterday I decided to install the latest Windows Updates. After doing so, I experienced some lag and some programs wasnt working, I left it. This morning I decided I wanted to uninstall the Updates, I started to do so, but they only removed 1 by 1 requiring a restart every time. Finally I got fed up and decided to do a System Restore to the previous Friday (16th). After that, when my computer restarts, I get just a black screen and my cursor, I can move my cursor, but cannot select anything. Ive tried repairing and reinstalling Windows XP by booting from the CD, but it hasnt worked. In the middle of my first attempt to reinstall Windows XP, System Restore appeared and said the restore was successful. I carried on with the installation and have tried repairing a fresh start of Windows Aswell. Again, the same blank screen with the cursor. Ive tried entering in safe mode and last good settings. Safe mode loads up but I cant select anything, there is no start menu. The same for safe mode with networking and safe mode with command prompt.

Q1 - are vundo and virtumonde the same or even related in some way

Q2 - when i run Virtumondebegone it doesnt find anything

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Holy ****, hey folks. Got a real problem. Today i booted up my Computer only to notice that it said my CPU was running at 1.2ghz, this is NOT right as it normally runs at 2080ghz (being an AMD XP 2800+)

What the hell is going on? Both Everest and DXDIAG are showing this, please help me.

I recently updated my BIOS but there were no errrors. Also, you may know if you've been following my threads that my CPU was overheating not that long ago could my BIOS have dropped the speed to 1.2ghz to 'cool' the PC down? My PSU is also not supplying enough power and so ordered a new one, which should arrive tommorow.

Will adding my new PSU set the CPU clock back to 2080ghz, god i hope so.

C'mon, need your help desperately.

:O :O :O

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Hello,

It seems that your FSB has been lowered.... It should be 12.5 x 166 for an AMD Athlon XP 2800+.

Post a screenshot or a report of the Motherboard page to show the Front Side Bus Properties and Memory Bus Properties.

Perhaps your BIOS hasn't detected your CPU correctly. Try resetting your BIOS, or see if you can correct the FSB in BIOS.

Oh and...how many watts is your current PSU? If it's 400W that is more, than enough...

So, I've been searching for a decent laptop for christmas. I want it to be able to run games like Team Fortress 2 fairly efficiently, and I want it to be able to last me for a decent enough length of time (I'm thinking around 4 or 5 years).

im having major problems with my dell inspiron 1545 laptop. ill try be a s breif but as descriptive as needed. i recently carried out a full dell system restore due to the computer freezing. once the restore had been completed the laptop then played up ont the start up with a blue screen carrying out a system dump. once this had finished the laptop operated asif it was brand new?

It then downloaded some automatic updates when connected to the internet and i downloaded vlc media player and everything seemed fine. i then shut down the laptop once more.

on start up the laptop will not proceed past the windows error recovery page!!??!! no matter what option i choose, in any of the menus either by hitting F2 F12 or F5. non of the repair tools work or anything??

the laptop just processes the choice and temporarily reboots and brings me straight back to the windows error recover page.

So i dont know whats going on? is my hard drive still ok? its still saying i have windows 7 but wont load it!

do i need a recovery disk? re install windows?

im not sure, hopefully someone out the might have some sort of idea or advice that i can take to getting it sorted.

any suggestions are welcome

Kind regards

Brett

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!!

Welcome Bret,
Not much that I can do but take an educated guess. You had a problem which resulted in you making a restore. This resulted in a blue screen and the problem continued. It seems to be a hardware problem with the computer. It can be the hard drive; as well as many other problems.
Do you hear any beeps when you try to boot? Try with speakers on.

Question: Urgent fix needed

Im a landlord, i have years of Books on my CPU. never been online with it ever. Completely isolated. After I finished monthly books it suddenly went off. Shut down without shut down.... Repowered nothing, checked power strip, nothing...

Immediately grabbed it and took to repair shop. Its a very important item, has ALL data from years back... plus its October and thats 9 months of this year entered... Backed up YES.... ON the same drive... LOL Dont laugh or scold me yet....

Repair shop says the fan stopped, causing the overheating of the motherboard and the Drive will not SPIN..... He can not retrieve any data....

WHAT is your suggestion and best options for this scenario.... Im all ears.

Hundreds or thousands of hours of data at risk.... I asked about removing the platter and reinserting into another drive.. said cant b done..

Thanks

Steve
 

Answer:Urgent fix needed

My initial thought is that would have to be one heck of an overheating to kill the HD along with the more vulnerable motherboard components. Is the shop reliable?

Have you tried the HD to another computer? That would be the simplest thing to confirm that it doesn't actually spin up. It just seems like too much of a coincidence that the HD has failed along with the motherboard. If you can wait for mail order something like this will make the connection externally but internal is not difficult.

If the HD really doesn't spin up at all, I don't have any suggestions. Professional data retrieval is extremely expensive ~$1000.

Hi all new here

The boss' computer has went down and this message is displayed at start up. C:\windows\system32\system missing or corrupt. Windows wont boot. I've looked around on the forum and found a few fixes but the problem is we have no recovery disk of any kind and no backup disk (ducks to avoid intense lectures). Is there anything I can do or will he need to take it to the manufacturer or place he bought it.

OS is XP SP2 if this helps but beyond that I have no other specs.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

ok, couple of things, take the hard drive out and attach it to another pc that is the same make and model and operating system on it, you can make the drive a slave, then copy the "system" file from that pc to the slave hard drive.

thne you can just reinsert the hard drive back in the pc and it will boot up, remember it has to be the same pc.

Dear Forum Members,
 
My computer seems to be heavily infested with something very unpleasant.  A lot (but not all) my of software is not working, or cannot be opened (e.g. Outlook) or comes up with the message "the item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed you may not have the appropriate permission"  I have looked at various on-line sites to find a solution, but haven't found much that addresses this problem specifically.  The things I have tried didn't deliver the desired help.  Any ideas, anyone ???  You'll have my eternal gratitude if this can be solved without major surgery (like re-installing my Windows 7).  Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?  Or would Windows 10 become similarly infected with this bug?
 
By the way - this is a general question - if I were to upgrade, would I loose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process?
 
Thank you for reading thus far.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Kind regards - AndreasO
 

Answer:Urgent help needed

"...Would it be helpful if I upgraded to Windows 10?"  Upgrading to Windows 10 with your current OS having problems will probably not help solve those problems, such might simply "transfer" to your new OS.
"...if I were to upgrade, would I lose all my programs and documents currently on my laptop in the process..."
If the current OS is in good working order, then an upgrade normally does not do away with installed programs -- unless you make a few wrong choices during the upgrade/install process.  Documents - toss up, many have had no problems, some have had a few problems.
** After everything is fixed within your current OS -- before upgrading, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two external HDs **

The default browser on my computer is Internet Explorer. I usually use the IE browser to get on Google in order to access FireFox and download it; here's the problem(s). First IE suddenly stopped letting me access Google everytime i would try it would send me to the Cannot Find Server page that says "Page cannot be displayed" You know like when your internet is cut off so i had to start using Bing to get to FireFox.
 
Then for some reason IE started displaying a stripped down version of the Mozilla site. My default IE is an old version and doesn't have Flash Player so i figured that was the problem but it wasn't doing that before. But i didn't fret because i could still download FireFox from the Mozilla site even in it's stripped down state, but now IE stopped letting me download FireFox from Mozilla all together.

tonight i made the biggest mistake of my life by letting someone who i at first trusted and thought was helping me and then he took control of my computer via freeloop and f**ked everything. i was asking him to help me put a theme on my ipod and then he deleted system restore and a bunch of other things all quickly and left. i can access system restore but when it asks you to pick an earlier date you cant click on them. also the internet connection is screwed up, the internet is there, and im typing this using my nintendo wii running off a router which still works, but when you try to open the internet, it brings you up to dial-up, asking for a username and password. to reiterate, we obviously don't have dial up. Everything is much larger, and the resolution makes everything look pixelated. Last but not least he removed everything from my ipod touch, and it won't connect to itunes, due to an 'unknown error.' Lastly, on the main screen of my ipod there are no buttons. He stripped it. Any help of any kind, pretaining ti either my ipod or my computer would be greatly appreciated. i'm just a kid that made a bad mistake and a lapse in judgement. please help.....

Your Operating System and Internet Explorer versions are WAY out of date and represent a major security risk. After we fix your current problems, you must get updated. You need to install Service Pack 2 for security purposes.

You have not completed the READ ME, please follow the steps below:

Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support


Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above and you still have a problem, make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below thread to properly use HijackThis and attach the log:

OK I had a major Vista meltdown today.

Diskeeper Pro damaged my Vista install, causing my PC to BSOD cycle on startup.

After my initial panic I sat down and thought things through..

I ran the repair routine from my Vista Install CD, this got me as far as a black screen with a mouse pointer :-(

So I realised that my vista install was dead an buried, although the command line showed me that all my data (there is a huge amount) is all intact.

Vista wont let me install over the top of itself like XP used too. So I had to plug in another SATA drive to enable me to install a fresh copy of Vista on the 2nd disk without trashing the 1st.

Now I can boot Vista YAY!! well almost YAY!!.

I can see the original disk as D: but I cant access it.

I have tried setting the permissions on the drive, which went off and listed all my files as it set the new perms but afterwards I still could not access it (Access Denied).

I have a backstore drive standing by to copy across the 1TB of data (yes you read correctly), but I need to be able to access the data before I can back it up.

Any ideas?

START | tyrp cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator - then type the following and hit enter -

chkdsk d: /r
Then re-boot.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

So right now I have a Trojan. I am trying to get rid of it. Earlier I went into the WTM, and looked at my processes that I had running. What I am doing is going through all of the processes and looking up what they are, what they do, and if they could be a potential danger to my computer. I came across a program called SVCHOST.exe. I typed it in at the UniBlue process library, andI got mixed results. Apparently, SVCHOST is a essential program that is harmless, But, it seems that alot of Trojans and harmful things alike disguise themselves as SVCHOST. I currently have 8 different svchost.exe's running, with mem usage ranging from 3,000 kb, to 28,000. Do you think that I have a problem?

I tried to download something earlier (not porn, promise) but immediately after i pressed download, it redirected me to a porn site. At the time, I had AVG antivirus, but I uninstalled that and downloaded Avast! I ran the test and it did find a trojan, it also found a buch of spyware. I did what it recommended me to do ( being that i was unfamiliar with avast), and I moved them to the chest, but some of them werent able to go to the chest, i am not sure that one of them was the trojan though, but I am nearly certain because after I put the bad stuff in the chest, I chose to delete them, but, after I deleted them, I still have the Trojan. What the trojan is doing is when I try to get on IE, it says Blank page and tells me to download a fake antivirus. Obviously, I did not. Also, when I try to ... Read more

Question: URGENT HELP NEEDED

So I live at home with my parents and they've been getting weird emails lately from 'MAILER-DAEMON' and 'Mail delivery system' saying we've got undelivered mail. We've been getting hundreds of these over about the last two weeks.

Today we got an email supposedly from Westnet, our internet provider. It said our mail system was infected with a virus and we needed to call their number in the email.

That was about an hour ago. My mother (against everything I told her) has since called the number and gotten 'live support' via the phone. It involved basically the guy on the phone taking complete control over our computer: mouse, keyboard, everything; and showing my mother what needed to be done.

it involved completely reconfiguring our modem, giving them our address and installing 'malwarebytes' off a site called Ninite.

My mother is insisting he's just a friendly support person who's doing this all for free. Am I being paranoid? Because we have a decent amount of fairly sensitive information on that computer.

Answer:URGENT HELP NEEDED

Look up the ISP's actual phone number and call them up to ask if anything like that had actually been going on, and if that's their actual procedure or not.

I would be hesitant as well.

hi guys, i really need help. I cant find the stereo mix in my pc

I previously used win xp (installed the drivers from the cd) and had the stereo mix.
now, I'm using windows 7 64 Bit and I didn't install anything from the CD because i thought it's already supported.

Now I can't find my stereo mix. I checked the disconnected and disabled devices, still can't find anything

I'm using ASUS PK5PL-AM motherboard.
Help please

I can listen to music and stuff, but I can't use my microphone

PS: i was trying to install the drivers in my win 7, unfortunately my cd doesn't support win 7 OS, and i can't find any update for the drivers..

Answer:Urgent help needed please! :(

The lack of the Stereo Mix is a major complaint of many. It's the driver that is usually the issue. Check with the sound chip vendor for a Win 7 driver. e.g. if it's RealTek then check with RealTek, if it's Sigmatel check with IDT (SigmaTel is now IDT). But, ultimately you may have to install a Win 7 sound card that does have the feature you want, several on the Dell forum that have upgraded old XP systems to Win 7, and there are no updated drivers, have had to do that.

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!

Hi, alnic123

Welcome.

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.
Running SDFix in Safe Mode:

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log
