Blue screened because I deleted a registry file and a nasty virus.

Q: Blue screened because I deleted a registry file and a nasty virus.

Hello everyone I'm new to the board and I apologize for not having the time to read through all of the beginning tutorials and scanning to see if this has already been addressed on the site. I've learned more about computers in the last eight hours then I could ever imagine. I have a Lenovo T420 running Windows 7 enterprise service pack two. My computer won't boot up in windows regular mode or safemode. I believe I deleted a registry file and that blue screened my computer. My computer has windows bit locker Drive encryption in which I am an administrator and have the key. I have until tomorrow to get my expense reports submitted for the last three weeks so that I can get reimbursed and my computer picked a doozy of a time to get a virus. Specifically the Mal/Iframe-AH that I thought was quarantined. I believe it is this virus that has: Redirected Google, mirrored other websites, taken over all Internet downloads from Firefox and Internet Explorer, told me Skitch needed an update, and I downloaded a SCARY version of Skitch, and fakes the virus protection scan when I ran it. I went into the registry and deleted a file that basically blue screened my computer. I'm at a point now where I can get to the command prompt however I believe the startup repair from bitlocker is overriding my boot up disk. I did change the boot order from advice from a Lenovo rep over the phone but I still haven't seen the start up menu for the Microsoft, I believe, system sweeper boot disk. My tools are my iPhone4s, that I'm typing on right now, my friend's old Mac computer, a Windows boot up disk system sweep and internet. I've been working on this all day and I have finally, I believe, stumbled upon the place where I can get a solution. I'll be waiting on hand for any and all help and provide the best feedback I can.

Preferred Solution: Blue screened because I deleted a registry file and a nasty virus.

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.)

Do you remember what file you deleted, which started the blue screening?

Please help. I deleted a registry file called wow6234node (something like that). It came up with an error saying that there was an error deleting it. I rebooted and now vista won't start. I am running 64 bit Vista. I DID NOT back up anything!!! I know very very stupid. Cannot get it to start in safe mode either. Can I repair this at all without losing anything? I thought about putting in the os disk and trying to repair that way but I was afraid of complete loss.

PLEASE HELP.

First of all - why did you delete that file?

You can boot from your XP CD - go into the recovery console - and copy that file from your XP CD to the system32 folder.

Dear Tech Support,
I have deleted a registry file on my desktop computer running Windows XP. I boot up normally and everything runs fine until I go to open 'any' of the yellow folders on my system. When I double click on a folder a DOS command box pops up. i.e. when I try to open 'my pictures' (yellow folder) the DOS box appears...when I go to open 'my music' (yellow folder) a DOS box appears. I was wondering if you could give me any insight as to which registry key might be associated with this function.

And yes, I know I am lame.. I deleted the registry key when trying to delete adware on my system. I too quickly highlighted the key and hit delete before I realized it was the wrong one.

And just to let you know I am not an expert with computers at all. So don't scold me for messing with the registry while not being savvy enough to do so.. I already am beating myself up enough about it :(.

Any suggestions on which file to replace?

A:Deleted Registry File

Hi Beth, bummer that happened! I think if you could give more information, the REAL experts here will better be able to help you.

Do you know which section of the registry you were in when it happened? Can you re-trace your steps and try to narrow it down? The registry has tens of thousands of entries, and there are plenty that might affect whether you can open files.

Did you go back in your system restore to see if you have a restore point prior to that deletion? Even if it brings your virus back, it might just be worth a try.

Tell us what exactly is in that DOS window that pops up, if you can.

Which virus were you deleting? If it is known which files it messes with that may help someone figure out what got fragged.

good luck!

A:Blue Screened

Hi, some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
======
Let us have some Pc specifications.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe
======
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Hi,

I'm new to this but I figured I'd give this a try. This is a repost of my earlier post I did last week. no replies .

I have an Acer Aspire 5110 laptop and recently I've been getting the bluescreen when starting the laptop. Sometimes it pops up after I login, sometimes on the password screen. The bluescreen usually has HSFHWAZL.SYS (i think). After this, windows usually does a disk check. Sometimes it finds nothing, other times it truncates like 15-20 files.

Currently I'm running WindowsXP Media Center Edition.

I downloaded HijackThis and here's the log file.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks!

So I had the virus that sometimes manifests itself as a fake smss.exe file, and I guess somewhere in the process of trying to remove it I accidentally deleted the real smss.exe file in the I386 folder. I understand that missing smss.exe can cause system instability and slowness. What are my next steps?

A:Accidentally Deleted a Registry File

Reference: http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/smss.exe.html.In the first place, the i386 folder is a storage folder...has nothing to do with active O/S.If any file is missing from the i386 folder, seems to me that any number of efforts could correct that. The most simple seems to be simply copying it from the active location and placing it there.I don't know the source of your info...but I only show two locations (System32 folder and System32\Dllcache folder) for this file, with the i386 not being either.I suppose that it could be part of the .cab file in i386, which makes sense to me. If it is, then it's compressed and you would have to restore the .cab file in entirety. I suppose that could be done by updating an SP or doing a repair install.Louis

I'm not sure where this thread is supposed to go 100%. Anyways, I deleted a file in Reg Edit.. and I messed up terribly. At first when I did it, I couldn't connect to anything requiring internet, said my connection was not private on google chrome, and I couldn't start up any apps. So, I restart my computer and I can't even get to the login area.. just tells me I have an error everytime. I've tried to factory reset, reset my pc to an earlier date, tried using a USB to repair windows.. it all just gives me errors.. I have a lot of things that mean a lot to me on my PC, anybody have any idea on options I may have? Thank you so much..

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,
Ben

Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

I've been getting the blue screen of death several times a week, if not several times a day, for several months now. It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

A:I'm getting blue-screened to death

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

hi guys i'm posting this from my slow, virus-infected old comp so 'm gonna try and make this short and simple.
 
i  basically was trying to make a minecraft server on my main comp (windows 7).  i got to a point where i needed to open the command prompt.  i tried and it only flashed open for a brief second, then seemed to fail.  i follwed some tutorial online about it that said to go into regedit, then [hkey_local_machine_software/policies/microsoft] and then to delete the mircrosoft file.  i attempted to do this for some reason, and got a messagethat said it couldn't delete it.  so i said meh and was about to give up.  i went to open some random program and gt this message "illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion"
 
i tried another program and got the same message.  so i restarted, and pc went to bluescreen.  tried F8 on another restart attempt and tried safemode and windows repair, even restore mode, but it either locks up or bluescreens.  i don't have a boot disk on hand.  any advice is appreciated, thanks.

A:deleted registry file - now my pc doesn't work

Hi
 
You need to do an offline system restore to a date prior to this happened. To do that either a "Windows 7" install DVD or a "System repair disc" is needed. You can create a "System repair" disk from another working machine ( may be a friend's or neighbor's machine ). 
 
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html
 
Once the disc is created, perform "System restore".

This is when it blue screened with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Once the blue screen reached 100% it hung for a good five minutes before I decided to try a hard reset and now it's stuck on the loading wheel and won't boot up.

Hi. I've recently downloaded a spyware doctor, and after running a full scan of my computer, it told me that this file: <HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon/Userinit> was infected, so I deleted it. Today, I tried to logon to my account, but once I logged on, the computer immediately logged me off again. Now I know I need that file to logon, but I already deleted it. Is there any way I can fix this problem without having to "brainwash" my computer? Thanks

A:[SOLVED] Unable To Logon - Deleted Registry File

Welcome to TSF....

If you have deleted the registry file I am sorry but you are going to have to re-install windows. If you want the important data back on the hard drive you are going to have to use another computer and download a Linux live iso file burn it to a disk and use it to back up the data. If you do not have the recovery disk set for the computer iI would suggest purchasing a new set from the manufacturer of the computer.

If you have a backup image for the operating system you can restore the registry from that backup and might just lose just a smal bit of data.

I had some problems with a trojan virus and a bunch of nasty browser hijackers, so per the advice of a tech forum (not this one) I went into the registry and deleted a bunch of stuff, and I also deleted everything except the localhost line in the HOSTS file.
Now I can't go to any websites. I can use the internet service for AIM, etc, so it is not the connection.
Is there anything I can do besides reinstall Windows entirely?

I tried installing a different browser, still a no go.

Also. For some reason my system restore was off so that is not an option either.

If anyone can help, I would be most appreciated.

Download WinsockFix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

Then......

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree.

I'm in the process of repair/recovery of my machine (Dell Inspiron 8500 with Windows XP Home, Service Pack 2). I'm following exactly the instructions in: http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...chmentid=62075, but a problem has developed. The "software" file (which is the file that the original blue screen error message says is "corrupt, absent or not writable") will not copy to the new tmp directory to create the backup. My understanding from the article is that this backup file (software.bak) will later be used to restore correct settings for various software applications. Since I can't copy it, it appears that I am screwed, no? Or is there a way out somehow?

Thanks to anyone who's been there and can help...

BTW I have the XP installation disk that came with, and a diagnostics disk which I have not yet run.

Never mind, I had it wrong--didn't read the document referred to above carefully enough. The procedure worked like a charm, and the document is very easy to read and entertaining to boot! (pun intended).

The document describes a procedure that closely follows a Microsoft KB document (which I now can't find) but does not contain any warning regarding whether the OS is an OEM (original equipment manufacture) install or not. The Microsoft doc says not to use the procedure on an OEM-installed OS, but I just did it on my Dell, so that warning seems to be incorrect.

Many many thanks for the help provided by this document and this site.

Hi,

A virus has removed the value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon 'userinit' so that the machine logs off the second you log on.

What I want to do is reinsert this key back into the registry of the other machine by installing the harddrive (which i've already done) and edit the 'SAM' (or which ever file that needs editing) in c:/windows/system32/config.

I would very grateful as I have tried various kinds of editing software but I can only seem to edit my own registry which you already know has no use to me.

For the second time in the last few months We've had a partial network outage that was traced to a blue screened machine. This time, the BSOD referenced storport.sys.  The issue being caused is that the switch gets flooded with unknown traffic and that
goes as far as the uplinked switch that gets taken down.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my computer and had it up to date on all of the Windows updates. I also have Windows Vista installed on another drive on the computer.
I was using it earlier and it suddenly blue screened at random. I was just browsing Reddit or something when it happened.
Once it blue screened I couldn't get it to work again. The error code it gave me was 0x000000e for both my Windows 7 install and Vista install (both were working fine before this blue screen).
I got on my laptop and downloaded the system repair and put it on a disc. I ran it on my desktop (the computer having issues) and it repaired the boot issues. However, on the Windows 7 install I can get to the login screen and log in now, but it will spend about a minute or two sitting at the 'Preparing your desktop' message before coming up with a screen with nothing but a teal background and in the bottom right it says this:

This copy of Windows is not genuine

It is a legitimate copy and has worked fine for a year before this happened. The background looks like this minus the taskbar and icons: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/pics...win2000pro.png

The Vista install seems to work fine now though. However, I cannot access the drive that has Windows 7 installed on it from Vista anymore. If I try opening it, it will say 'Access Denied'.
Also, the drive letter for Windows 7 changed after running the repair. It was originally drive letter G but it has been changed to F.

To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

All of a sudden one of those fake anti-virus programs came up, I don't remember the exact name, but it was something along the lines of Advanced Anti-virus Cleaner. Anyways, it wiped everything out of my computer. I know some of these fake programs will make it impossible to open programs, so usually I'd go to safe mode and open Malwarebytes from there.

My computer looked empty, no programs on the desktop or start menu or my computer. So I went into safe mode and once again ALL my files were gone except for the fake anti-virus program located on the desktop. So I reset my computer through windows to earlier that morning around 5:00am. Once it finally restarted all my desktop items were back and my windows folders as well as my program files.

Although my computer looked fine, all my personal files were gone, or at least look like their gone. My documents folders with pictures, documents, music, videos are all gone.
