Combofix Incompatible Error

Q: Combofix Incompatible Error

My Laptop appears to have been infected with a Ransom/Highjack Virus. I cannot access the Internet with any of four browsers. I managed to rid the system of popups (using Stopzilla) but still cannot access the Web. When I try to download Combofix from a thumbdrive form another computer, I get an Error Message that my XP system is incompatible with the Combofix download, although I think I am using the correct Combofix XP link.

I'd appreciate receiving a Combofix link that is definitely compatible with XP....and a solution for downloading it to my machine. I suspect that the virus may be creating this obstacle to downloading in addition to the other problems, but I am not sure.

Thanks for your help!

Preferred Solution: Combofix Incompatible Error

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.)

Trying to run combofix on a computer and it keeps giving the following error:

Incompatible OS. Combofix only works for workstations with Windows 2000 or XP.

The computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

I have run MalwareBytes which removed 77 infections (mostly MyWebSearch). I can post the log if you would like. The infections wernt anything that ive dealt with before, though. I ran TDSSKiller and it found nothing. Date and Time on the computer is correct and all windows updates have been installed.

So for the first time Combofix has not been able to run on an infected machine. The machine now appears to fairly clean after malware bytes, super etc.. The problem is that without combo fix the machine is jacked up. Combofix reports incompatible OS even though it is windows xp SP3 we are now stuck with this machine.

I've got a Windows 7 64 bit laptop that continues to get the "Incompatible OS" each time I run ComboFix. It's like it's an old copy as it tells me it will only work on WinXP and Win2k. I have deleted the file and re-downloaded it. I have downloaded a new copy and gave it a new name. I've tried it in Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode Command Prompt. I have tried everything I can think of including booting from the recovery partition.

After a BIOS update I experienced a problem with the bootmgr so to fix this I repaired my windows install, after a few hours I realised that my SATA DVD-RW wasn’t being recognised by the BIOS, this is the same thing I experienced when I first fitted the drive a few months ago and put it down to the BIOS being reset to defaults. So I entered the BIOS to turn off the RAID on the SATA and get the system to recognise that the drive is fitted. After I saved and restarted the computer would run through the hardware check and the drive was now detected and all other dives were also detected correctly. But the screen would then go black for a split second re-display the same information but with the message “Secondary Slave Drive – ATAPI Incompatible” followed by “press F1 to Continue” but pressing F1 does nothing.

Do i need to reinstall office or something?
 

A:Solved: incompatible office programs error

This appears to be quit a hot topic when you Google. Screwing up whole networks of users. My brief analysis points to a problem with 'click to run' which is not configure correctly depending on which "Office" your running. MS sent out KB29207098 and there is some controversy about and I wouldn't install.
The safest option (IMO) to try:
&#8226;Start an Office 2013 application, such as Microsoft Word 2013.
&#8226;On the File menu, click Account.
&#8226;For Office 2013 Click-to-Run installations, an Update Options item is displayed. Select the Update Now option.
&#8226;Wait for it to finish
&#8226;Done - Hope it helps

I have a Canon Pixma MP600 inkjet printer. Turned it on yesterday morning, and it gave me an "incompatible device plugged into the printer" error message. There was NO device plugged into the computer. Later, based on things I found on the Internet that said this might be due to the paper jam lever being in the wrong position, I followed the steps to reset the lever that detects same. Didn't do anything except change the error message to "there's a paper jam". . . which there definitely IS NOT!

I tried unplugging the power cord and USB cable. I tried rebooting the computer. Nothing fixed the problem.

Contacted Canon tech support and spent 10 min. on the phone with a rep, who had me go thru a number of steps, but ultimately concluded that the printer needed service. . . which costs almost as much as I paid for it.

Anybody have any idea what could cause this error message, which makes the printer inoperable? I don't use the printer much, so turn it off and on during the day. Is it best to leave it on all the time (i.e., could that be the cause of the failure)?

Hi everybody. I am running windows Vista Home Premium, and am frequently getting a blue-screen error that shuts down the computer.

The problem appears to be with wind502u.sys, a driver for the attached "Motorola Wireless USB Adapter."

The error is "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

I thought to myself, "oh, easy fix! Just install the Vista-compatible driver." Unfortunatly, there isn't one. As far as I can tell on the Motorola website, they discontinued the product, and only ever produced drivers through Windows XP.

So, the device works... It'll just cause a blue screen of death at random times. Any thoughts? How can I stop this from happening without an updated manufacturer driver? Do I have to go out and lay down the cash for yet ANOTHER wireless adapter? (GRRRR)

If anybody knows of an updated driver for this, too, let me know.

I downloaded the newest version of Combofix on 7/8/10. When it is run it detects a Rootkit. I say OK to reboot. XP hangs during shutdown. After 4 hours it still has not shut down and rebooted. If I do a cold boot Combofix then runs but finds no problems and deletes nothing upon completion. If I reboot and run ComboFix again the same thing happens (finds a Rootkit but hangs during reboot). I put a different hard drive with XP that I know if be malware free. When Combofix is run it has the same exact issue.

I recently was infected by a virus so I ran Malware Bytes which usually takes care of any viruses pretty well. After it scanned there was one that it said it could not be removed so I assumed it was one that would be cleaned upon reboot. I scanned again anyway after reboot several times but it comes back with nothing but my browsers keep redirecting to random sites. Previously to fix this, i've used ComboFix which has successfuly fixed that. I still had the Combofix file on my computer so I ran Rkill first (which only killed a Google Updater) then CombFix. My ZA firewall put up connection alerts several times for IE and Firefox, and either accepting or declining them, I get an error message from ComboFix that says "error - win32 only" in English and several other languages and it never starts. I have XP pro on my machine, i've downloaded the most recent one (combofix) available from here at BC and even tried to run it in safe mode. What is the problem? Can anyone help? Anyone experience this?

A:Combofix error

ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computerYou shouldn't be running ComboFix without supervision by staff here at BC.

Ok so we are getting the following error on 20+ pc's on a domain based network. We get this error on basically every PC we log into and run combofix on. We have tried MANY rootkit removal utilities with no luck. (ie malwarebytes, combofix, sdfix, rootkit revealer, Trend rootkit, mcafee rootkit, superantispyware, etc...) The server has also been scanned... We've deleted the users profiles on the server and on the local PC's, we've even completely reloaded a PC and added it back to the domain and the message came back immediately after running combofix on a clean profile. After the error pops up it prompts us to reboot the computer and then it runs combofix again and finds nothing. If we wait a little while after that it comes back up again... If anyone has seen this or has any input it would be greatly appreciated!

A:Combofix error

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer.I take it this is about a corporate network? If so, you really should consider a reformat or having the IT department taking this down. We cannot possibly work on 20 computers at a time in this forum. Besides, while cleaning one computer, malware would spread through the network and reinfected it, and so undo all our work.To have a chance to successfully clean all machines, you will need to isolate all of them, make sure all of them are completely clean as well as any removable storage and only after that reconnect the computers.

I was advised to run ComboFix as a possible solution to the problem that I'm having accessing some files (Access is Denied) and activating command lines such as chkdsk, where I am told that I do not have sufficient privileges.

I am the administrator on a private pc.

Unfortunately I did not read the instructions regarding preparation so I do not have a helper. The DDS does not download, but I have attached the log report.

Can anyone pls advise what I should do? There is no change in the problem of file access and privilege level.

Okay, I'm just looking to pick up a couple ideas from the kind and wonderful people here.

I use combofix fairly regularly with my job, I'm lead tech for a small district of a large corp. and I was introduced to combofix a couple years ago and found that it simplifies the cleanup and removal of certain malware to where I can take care of them in mere moments.

And so I had a customer with sysguard on it, sysguard is not a new bug, nor is it exceptionly bad, just annoying. Program wise its actually very similar to smitfraud, and can be removed using some of the same tactics. But combofix can kill it in one fell swoop, unfortunately when I ran it this last time I received the error Not Admin when it started scanning. I went though everything I could think of to find where this permission error was coming from, but its WinXP MCE sp3, there are not a lot of choices inside the Administrator Account in SafeMode.

I went and manually removed the hoaxware, much more time consuming. I decided to try combofix again just to see if the bugger was what was stopping it from running, but I get the same error. Everything else I have runs fine, even the batch and com tools that I have.

So, anyone with information would be good. I unfortunately will not be able to post any logs as I do not have access to the computer anymore. I'm mostly looking for ideas that i can try in case I run into this again.

I've read a bunch of old topics and tried following the same instructions and I'm still having problems.  
 
Malwarebytes freezes half way through the run.  I tried in safemode I get the same thing.  I tried combofix and I keep getting run errors/extract errors.  I read a lot of topics where people were having similar problems.  The only addition to mine is my hard drive is constantly saying low disk space.  Its no where near low, If I delete one or two things totally a few gigs within 20 minutes my disk space is back to 0 kb again.  
 
Please help! Much appreciated! .

Hi
I just tried ComboFix on Windows 8.1 in Safe Mode and it wouldn't run.
It says "windows 2000 is no longer supported".
Anybody else had this problem and is there a workaround or fix?
Thanks

A:ComboFix error on Windows 8.1

ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run. If you attempt to use ComboFix on 8.1, it should provide a message alert: ComboFix is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode' and exit. This message is intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on Windows 8.1.sUBs has recently advised that he is holding off releasing any working version of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure it works safely on that OS.

I work at an IT help center on a university campus. We offer virus cleanings and other general IT help to students, staff, and faculty. As part of our standard virus cleaning process, we run ComboFix. Starting yesterday, however, ComboFix will not run on any (6 or so machines) of the customers' machines we try to use it on. It stops with the error "Date Error: 2009-11-15, Check your settings."

The only way we have found to get it to run is by taking the customer's machine out from behind the firewall (done this on 3 machines so far). We have a machine running m0n0wall sitting between the switches that the customers' machines connect to and the internet. It has very stringent rules, allowing only ports 53 (DNS), 80 (HTTP), 443 (Secure HTTP), 21 (FTP), and 5722 (Jabber) outgoing.

We have also tried disconnecting the machines from the internet completely before running ComboFix, but that doesn't work either. This is odd, since ComboFix used to run just fine without an internet connection, usually in a reduced mode because the Windows Recovery Console isn't installed.

I found a version of ComboFix we downloaded 11/14/09 at 11:10am EST, and it runs OK right now (tested on 1 machine still behind the firewall).

Would anyone know if ComboFix was recently updated in a way that would cause this error if the computer has no or heavily firewalled internet connectivity?

ComboFix downloaded from bleepingcomputer throws an NSIS error (v 11.10.1.3 and 11.9.30.5).

When downloaded from infospyware, it runs successfully, but is an older version (11.9.26.2).

OS: XP Professional
Browsers: IE8 and Firefox on a non-infected machine. Caches cleared.

The target machine has been infected with Open Cloud Security. The older version of ComboFix deleted a number of infected files including some rootkit stuff, but I am concerned that without the latest version, some components may have been missed. The Open Cloud authors have apparently been modifying their strategy, as much of the advice online refers to component names that were not present in my case.

ComboFix was downloaded on a non-infected machine and transferred via USB stick.

I had a Dell notebook which I had worked on before and after running CCleaner, MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, Windows Security Essentials (each of which found a lot of really nasty stuff) and updating SpywareBlaster it still had some problems which none of the previous programs would detect, and after they all gave it a clean bill of health I knew something was still wrong. I then used my trusty ComboFix program which for the first time ever refused to run and gave a variety of weird error messages about "can't run on a 64-bit system", "can't run with AVG installed" and other similar things.

Well, since the computer had the Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit OS on it and didn't have AVG installed I knew something was Rotten in Denmark so I went back to the BC forums and found the TDSSKiller, which I downloaded and ran. See the log below for the results:

I ran combofix after it was complete it said something like, let combofix reboot your PC. It stayed like that for a while so finally i just hit the power button.

Now I get an error at boot up:

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\Default or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

Beginning dump of physical memory.....................

I tried "last known good configuration" , same problem. Safe mode doesnt work either.

Any ideas?

A:Ran Combofix, Now Registry Error

I booted off the windows xp cd into recovery console and ran this command copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default

It also seems like the virus is gone
