Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

Q: Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

Hi everybody

I picked up some nasty malware. AVG was updating and suddenly everything just fell apart.

I can't run any installation programs regardless of the extension or name. I've tried to install Rkill and MalwareBytes with absolutely no luck. It defaults to needing to be unblocked in the properties and no matter what compatibility mode I use it will not run. I get a 1084 error when I try to open the security center. In the taskbar I have an Action Center alert that says 1 Important Message and 3 Total Messages. The Action Center will not open at all. I do not have access to a USB key as I am not home, but I will be Tuesday evening. Any help would be infinitely appreciated.

Other notes I forgot: I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and I am constantly getting errors that Windows can't load and needs to be repaired. It runs and restarts, sometimes being repaired and other times not.

Thanks a lot
Jared

Preferred Solution: Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

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.)

A: Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps
thanks

Sometimes I will have 4-5 browsers open at once. I will then close all except one of them.

When I go into task manager, Processes, there will still be 4-6 "iexplorer.exe" processes open.

I don't want this. Why do they remain open after closing the browsers?

Is there a fix for this?

A:IE8: Multiple internet explorer processes open with one browser open

Do they stay there until you restart the computer or do they go away after you close all of the browsers? Also when you open more browsers again does more processes come up as well as the other already there?

I've messed up and I don't know how to undo it. I clicked "do not show this message again on taskbar" on a notification that kept popping up on my desktop everytime I logged on, and now whenever I log on, I can't open the action center. If I left click on that icon on the bottom right corner of the taskbar, right beside the date/time, nothing works. If I right click on that icon, I get a menu that includes "open action center" and clicking on it does nothing. I don't know what I did wrong and I can't undo it.

Action center won't open, when trying to open .jpg images it comes up with "The remove prodecure call failed" but if I try again it opens. When I open calculator the first time it's all grey, but if I close it and open it again it works fine. Sometimes explorer stops responding so I have to restart Explorer.exe to fix it. So there's a bunch of small problems going on all over the place. Other than that windows starts up and works fine.

I ran "sfc /scannow" and got a bunch of errors including: (here' just a small sample of some of the error entries)

You cannot do it from settings. Doing so changes nothing. Or at least for me it wasnt. I did the below steps to get it to work.

1. Open full version of OneNote.
2. Right click on the default tab that opens.
3. Select Copy Link to Selection
4. In the registry, navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ActionCenter\Quick Actions\All\SystemSettings_Launcher_Quicknote
5. On the right, double click on Uri to modify it
6. Past in the link you got from OneNote.
7. Restart system.

Hi all, Major Defense Kit has taken over my brother's computer. Working on a laptop with horrible WWAN signal, so my searching is limited. Sorry.

The PC is Win XP. I have printed the removal instructions and downloaded the requisite code onto both a USB stick and a CD. When I boot the machine, of course Major Defense Kit comes up. I let it go through its "scan" and then opt to "continue infected" of whatever it says. But then it just shows me a blank desktop (well, the background is there). It seems like the windows key (on the keyboard) is disabled, so I can't use WIN-E to bring up file explorer to run rkill. Of course, there's no icons or start button so I can't start it that way either.

How the heck can I open something in order to run/copy rkill to get going?

A couple things I've done:

I've killed MDK during its "scan". But I still can't do anything. Are there processes I can kill manually via task manager to help??

I've let MDK finish its "scan" and then clicked on "Install Heuristics module" to open up the browser window. However, I don't have any network connectivity on the infected machine, so I get a 501 in internet explorer. Even if it did have connectivity, the browser window it brings up has no url bar, so I couldn't redirect it somewhere to download rkill to the desktop anyway.

So how can I open up a file explorer window to access the USB stick or CD?

A:Major Defense Kit- Can't open file explorer to Get to RKill !!

Hey all, thought I'd follow up to tell my tale and hopefully others can learn by my mistakes.

First off, I learned a trick to run something when you can't open windows explorer. Probably a well-known trick, but was new to me. Since I could get in to task manager, go to the "applications" tab and select the "New Task" button on the bottom right. Then hit "Browse" and you can navigate to the program you want to run. Something else I learned along the way is that in these "browse" windows you can copy and paste files (and probably delete stuff too, but I didn't realize that until way too late. Woulda saved me a lot of time).

So I opened up task manger, selected the "major defense kit" app, right clicked on it, and selected "go to process". I was then able to ascertain the executable that was running. It was not one that was listed in removal instructions for MDK. It was "hotfix.exe".

So since I couldn't figure out how to delete the files with windows running, I booted Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD4WIN). I went into that file explorer and found it in the \Windows directory. I deleted it along with its companion .bat file (also different from the removal instructions) usdfgs.bat. Then I booted up windows and MDK did not start (yay!) but still I only had a desktop background with no icons or start menu (boo!).

So I spent the next coupld hours trying to find the listed regist... Read more

I have encountered an annoying little bug that I cannot solve and it's been a while ago that it started. I have downloaded a few files (.mkv) and have gotten thumbnails working for the files. Anyway, after the file was downloaded, they were stuck open in windows explorer. I cannot tell you if this started before or after gaining MKV thumbnail support, but I can tell you that if I uninstall the DIVX Plus application splitter and codec, it still remains affected. I cannot move or rename the files as they are constantly open in Windows Explorer. I can copy the files to new locations but the copies are affected the same way. If I close explorer.exe in the task manager and use CMD to rename and move the files, it works fine but when explorer.exe is reactivated, it opens them once more. (I also have taken to moving the files in Linux to save the hassle of CMD typing.) After a restart the files are open by windows explorer. After renaming the files with Linux (or CMD) they are STILL open by windows explorer. The files play perfectly in both WMP and MPlayer. I don't know what is causing this. How can I close these files in Windows Explorer so I don't have to deal with it?

Do you think the files are corrupted in someway keeping them open? Could it be the thumbnails? I have already used disk clean up to delete the thumbnails and reapply them and that didn't work. Turning off the thumbnails in Folder Options doesn't fix it either. So I don't actually think... Read more

Hi Reza.Deabae,

I'm not understanding the issue to 100%. What application are you trying to open, and what happens when you do? Or are you saying that whatever application you open Windows Media Player opens?

Could you please try to boot into Safemode (Press F8 during startup) and see if the problem persists there.

It does sound like your filetype associations has been screwed up, either by a system fault or a malware.

Hello and welcome to TSF,
The first step would be to try a different browser and see if your online problems keeps happening. If you are a hardcore IE fan, see if there is an update for it. As far as your pictures and files are concerned, it might need a simple solution like Disk Defrag. Many people overlook this, but hey it works! You can also do a Disk Cleanup (also built into Windows) which clears some unnecessary junk.
Good Luck!

Hi All,
I've been racking my brain trying to see what is going on and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. So I was hoping that someone on here might be able to help. Here's my situation. As I mentioned in the title something is going wrong with internet explorer and it opens in the task manager but is not open on the screen (although I do often see a little flash of something like a window popping up every now and then but only a flash then it's gone). Also I will click on normal links (like cnn.com after searching google for "cnn" and it will send me to some random website, usually trying to sell me something). Finally after some invesitgation it looks like there is a false iexplorer.exe file on my computer that got there somehow, and I think is causing issues. Oh and my windows firewall and symantec have been disabled. I have scanned with malwarebytes, adaware, spybot, and a few others with some each of them finding things but nothing has been fixed. 
 
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance,

Download a free program called ExplorerXP at www.explorerxp.com/ and it works like XP version except use keyboard enter to actually open the unlimitied number of files highlighted.

Last night had folder with over 4000 files needed opened to execute them and load them into a program. No issues. Otherwise, win 7 and above allow only 15 at a time.

My computer (OS Windows XP Home) has been running rather slow and recently I have not been able to access any internet sites. I have successfully connected to more than one wireless network and had 100% signal strength. When opening internet explorer, my preset homepage has disappeared and internet explorer is attempting to connect to errordns.com in the lower left corner of the window. The address bar remains blank. The explorer window then continues to constantly connect to errordns.com as if I were clicking Go on the right side of the address bar numerous times and overwhelming internet explorer. I am not able to access anything else which requires an internet connection, such as limewire or my AIM icon. I have attempted to change my homepage address in the internet connections options but the same repeating connection to errordns.com occurs. I do not have an up-to-date antivirus system currently. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

If you choose to disable to uninstall the Logitech Desktop Messenger you will not receive any messages about updates to your products.

Hello everyone.

I posted a problem that I can't open up my internet explorer 5 browser and
several people responded (Thank you guys)
They told me to download ie5.5 and install, but here's the questions if anyone can help me out.
Previously I had several spyware problems and I downloaded spybot to remove it all, but
I also went into registry editor to delete programs that would pop up during startup.
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run)
and afterwards I went to download whole library of dlls because some of my program setups
won't work because of some dll problem so I thought that downloading new set of dlls
would fix the problems.
Also I went into mru and deleted some files that I thought was useless...
After I did all that I cannot open up my ie5 browser and I got this error:

IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in module SHLWAPI.DLL

and I tried add/remove & repair my ie5, but after it's done it shows this:

Internet Explorer 5 cannot be repaired due to

I've always used explorer.exe as an FTP client but yesterday it stopped working. Every time I open an FTP site with explorer it opens up in default web browser (Firefox 8).

I also tried making a new url shortcut to "ftp://xxx.xxx/" with the .url extension. That also opened in Firefox. I then changed the default program of .url files to explorer.exe and that resulted in an infinite loop of new explorer.exes opening. The default recommended opening program is "Internet Browser - Microsoft Corporation".

So what on earth happened? Before that I had installed a new processor (Athlon X4 -> Phenom X6) and installed some light weight benchmarking software like CoreTemp and CPUID HWmonitor.

Does anyone know how this can be fixed? Maybe in somewhere in the registry?

Thank you!

Is there a fix for this?

It?s perfectly normal to see two or more iexplore.exe processes in the Task Manager when an Internet Explorer 8 window is open. This is due to a change made in Internet Explorer 8 where the frame and tabs are split, each having their own processes. Each tab has its own process so that the rest of the tabs and the browser frame/window are not affected if a single tab process crashes. A Guy

So I have downloaded rkill now but I still can't open mbam to do a malware scan. I still can't open spybot. Is there another way to bring up mbam? Do I need to download rkill again since I have rebooted?

A:Can't open mbam or spybot after downloading rkill

Ok, so for starters, have you actually run rkill? If not, I would go ahead and do that as it should stop the virus from stopping you from running mbam. If you still can't run mbam, I would try running it in safe mode. I would do a full scan inside of safe mode, that way it can atleast detect and remove some of the virus' files required for running.

Hi there.

My partner is still running Windows ME (ugh!) -- but with IE6.

As you can probably guess from the thread title - when she right-clicks a link and selects the 'open in new window' option it can take up to 4/5 seconds for the new window to open and the page to start loading.

When left-clicking a link as normal, new pages open fine in the current window - it's only when trying to open the link in a new window that the problem occurs. This has only seemed to start happening in recent weeks.

As she's running ME windows update doesn't offer much in the way of support nowadays...but i did check and she does have SP1 pack applied.

Do any of you lovely people have any ideas of how to re-speed this action up?
I was going to try the new IE7 - but it doesn't look like it's ME compatible.

Thanks

Okay. When you double-click on your hard drive or any other folders in My Computer, it opens that drive or folder in the same window of Explorer, right?

When I double-click on a hard drive or folder in my computer, it instead opens a search window. I managed to assign a default action for double-clicking that lets me open the folder or drive in a seperate window, but I can't delete actions that I've tried that don't work. So now, when i right-click on a folder or drive, a bunch of different actions (Such as find, explore, and the ones I made myself) pop up. This happened when I tried to change the icon for drives and folders in the same Edit File Types menu.

In the Edit File Types menu, the options for removing actions or setting the action to browse in the same window are grayed out. So now, I can't set an action to open the folder or drive in the same window, and I can't delete actions that don't work.

Here's how I managed to get the action to open the folder or drive in a seperate window.
1. I went to the Edit File Types menu and selected Drive

2. I clicked on Advanced

3. I clicked on New

4. I selected C:/Windows/Explorer.exe as the program used to perform the action

5. I named the action Explode and set it as default
Now, the window will open in Explorer like it should, but not in the same window. Any help would be appreciated!
