Combofix download gives error message

Q: Combofix download gives error message

I've tried to download combofix several times but it gives me an error message each time; therefore, I downloaded AdWcleaner, the first time it scanned and removed items but I've tried to scan again with ADW but it keep giving me an error message. My computer was fine until my daughter tried to update to Windows 8 and added adware, malware, etc. What do I do, my computer is at risk?

Preferred Solution: Combofix download gives error message

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.)

Hello everyone!!!

I am new to posting but have been to the site many times and found my solutions in your forums. I am posting because a few days ago after downloading what I thought was a movie from a torrent site, turned out to be a nasty little malware. After trying to view the movie, it didnt work and then my PC began having issues. I tried to reboot only to find a buch of AV Windows Antivirus pop ups all over the place. I quickly shut off my internet connection and ran a bunch of tools to remove the malware. However, after running combofix, I got a weird pop up stating I had a rootkit that is affecting by TCPIP Stack and then a windows error showing the process was not working. I clicked close to close out the error and hoped that combofix would continue. Sadly the PC was locked up and I had to power cycle the PC. After logging back in and running Combofix again, I noticed that my wifi connection shows as connected but I am unable to obtain an IP address. I have tried a release renew but am getting an error that the RPC Server is unavailable.

Any help on this issue would greatly be appreciated!!

I used combofix in order to remove a malware that made me unable to do anything by popping up with a false Interpol warning. I ran combofix because this happened previously and I managed to solve the problem without reading the logs, cause I'm not an expert. This time, immediately after starting up the computer, on the desktop always appears a message which says "C:\progra(and then a strange curved line I can't reproduce)2\157318515.cpp Impossible to find the specified module" (I literally translated the last sentence from my language, I don't know if it's correct). I naively eliminated the combofix logs, again. To make up for it, I have two logs with FRST. I hope you could help me.

When I clicked on a link to download a .zip file, I accidentally unchecked: "Always ask before opening this type of file." So now, every time I click on a link to a .ZIP file (which I mostly do), it always just starts downloading without asking me whether to save the file to disk, or open the file from its current location. This also means that I do not have the choice to choose which folder it will download to, it just goes straight to the Temporary Internet Files folder, which I really don't want it to go there. How do I get it back to normal, where it will always give a confirmation?

Please help me.

My computer is all messed up, all of a sudden, and I don't know why. I will take it from the beginning. Out of the blue, while trying to boot up, I get a message saying "Windows cannot load, there is a missing file that is needed..."(the rest I can't remember, sorry). Please use your installation disk and use the Repair option to fix this problem. I use Windows Vista Ultimate, by the way. So I popped in the disk and ran repair. It ran for about 15 minutes and apparently fixed whatever was wrong, as I was then allowed to get to my log in page, and subsequently my desktop. But now, a host of new problems have emerged. Some, but not all of my previously downloaded software is now inoperative. I clicked on the shortcut icons and nothing happened. Yet, some DID work. Then on a couple I would get the following message: in a box in the upper left hand corner it says "SmartWebPrinting", then the message says-"the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-rom or other removeable disk that is not available. Insert the 'SmartWebPrinting' disk and click ok". At the bottom is a white space with the wording 'Use Source' and the number "1" in the box. HOWEVER...when I hit 'cancel', whatever I was trying to access then comes up okay, so it is crazy. I don't want to use my computer in this fashion. Something is obviously wrong to get that error message. Heck, I don't even know what "SmartWebPrinting" is, and NOTHING I have downloaded came from ... Read more

I get the Windows No Disk exception C0000013 etc. error after I downloaded System Mechanic via Real Player. When I uninstall System Mechanic it goes away. I have also done clean installs of both programs. I enjoy the tools that System Mechanic provides. Then I downloaded System Mechanic from the iolo website. Same message 3 times whenever I open the program and when the computer is idle. One thing I found out from Real is other programs from their site will not let you download and use applications unless you have a c drive installed. My operating system for some reason was installed to the letter I. I've heard I can't switch the letter to C. I don't have the disk to reinstall hard drive. And I am thinking maybe I get this message because System Mechanic is trying to access the C drive. The download manager used is the same for both sites. Can someone please help me.

Thanks,

Justyermama
 

A:Error Message C0000013 after download

It's not a good idea to switch the drive letters, unless your going to completely reinstall Windows in the process. If everything works fine, except System Mechanic, I wouldn't bother.

What are you trying to do with system mechanic? There's probably a better way.

This happened quickly. First thing I noticed was during a Windows Update. I had recently reformatted my hard drives and had a LOT of programs to download and install. It went well until the end when it refused to install three security updates and another update ( not sure which). Microsoft was stepping me through things - running "FixIt" and the Microsoft WIndows Readiness Tool. This had no effect.
I also ran system file checker. NOthing has worked. On the contrary, things appear to have gotten worse. WHen I would try to log onto ebay, or most any secure website I would get an error message - something to do with SSL. I tried it with Internet Exlorer ( I was using Mozilla Firefoxat first). Using explorer I was allowed to enter secure sites but other things stopped working.
None of the links in Outlook emails work anymore - I get a "general failure message".

I've ran with Norton, Microsoft Essentials, Malware Bytes Anti malwarem - all came back clean.

Can you help like you did before with a problem I had a year or so ago!?!?

Help! I think I have a virus on my computer. I tried to download McAfee Virus Scan, but every time I try, I get an error message stating: "Cannot find SHDocVwCtl.WebBrowser. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct." What does that mean, and does it have anything to do with the reason I can't download McAfee?? Thanks!!!!
 

A:cannot download McAfee, SHDocVwCtl.WebBrowser error message

Are there any new programs running in task manager?

Just to be safe, download Hijack This:

Make sure it's in a permanent folder of your creation
Launch the program, run a scan
Then save the log file it creates
Copy and paste that log back into this thread

For whatever reason an error message has popped up several times in recent days. It reads as follows:

NOTICE: You have not completed a scan, so the condition of your registry remains unknown. If your computer has errors in the registry database, it could cause unpredictable or erratic behavior, freezes, or crashes. Would you like to download Registy Cleaner to scan for and correct any registry problems now (recommended)?

I'm not sure what this means, but I presume the recommendation is legitimate. My first thought is that this is some sort of well-disguised advertisement, but I don't really believe so. Now that I think about it, it seems that I did interrupt a scan recently, so I'm wondering if that is why I keep getting this message. If so, perhaps all I need to do is run another scan through to completion.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone familiar with this error message.

O.S. = Windows 7, 64-bit. Browser = Firefox 3.6.28

PROBLEM: I cannot download any applications from any website.

When I click on a website's "download" button, I immediately get a message box which says
" "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp\[for example]wfxiIAci.exe.part" could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder. Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location".

When I checked ownership, "Users" was "Administrators"; "my name" was either "System" or "my name"; "AppData" was "System"; "Temp" was probably "System".

I followed the instructions on a Microsoft "technet" webpage to change the ownership of the tree "C:\Users\[my name]\AppData\Local\Temp" to "Administrators". This did not allow the downloads
or change the message.

Also, the Properties/Security box of my "C:\Users\[my name]" folder includes the Users "Unknown Acct = S-1-5-21-879640176-2077098734-2292519611-1001"
and, "Home Users".

After deleting the computer's Limited Acct, the 2 Users are still listed.

HELP!!!

Every time I download a winamp skin from their site it comes up with the error message stated in the subject after it has downloaded 99% of the file!

When downloading, the file is temporarily placed in here:

"C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6j8XMZO1\filename"

Is it just because I am not logged in as an administrator, or is it something else???

How can I overcome this problem???

Cheers )

A:Error message "Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied" when download

It is indeed probably because you are not logged in as the Admin. When you download skins for Winamp, they self extract and install to the proper directory. Sounds like the skin is coming down OK but when it goes to extract and install, it stops as you don't have access.

While downloading Combofix from your site, Norton 360 blocked and deleted download. Marked as unsafe.
Any suggestions?

A:Combofix download

Hi mlcoob What you are experiencing right now is called a "false positive". It usually happens when a file, program or process is identified as "malicious" by a Security vendor (Antivirus, Antimalware, Firewall, etc.) but in fact is totally legitimate. This happens because the targetted file, process, etc. have a behavior that could be associated with malware, despite the fact that it's not. This behavior can occur because it tries to access certain information on the system that is commonly targeted by malware. Symantec often detects ComboFix as a "malware" and blocks it, but this is because of their Reputation system. It's detected as WS.Reputation.1 (or something along these lines). It doesn't means that ComboFix is malicious at all. It's a false positive from Symantec on ComboFix. Mainly downloads hosted on BleepingComputer will be flagged as malicious, but they are all legitimate, hence all false positives. The trick here is to either whitelist the file you're trying to download or disable your Antivirus product for the time you're using it.In addtion, ComboFix is a very powerful reporting and scripting tool that was developped by sUBs, used by members of the malware removal team here on BleepingComputer (and also on other forums). This tool can easily break a Windows installation if poorly and/or wrongly used. It can make the whole system unbootable and also delete everything present on your drives (leaving you with close to no chance of recovery) or damage your Windows... Read more

While trying to download, a window says Malware Blocked. Presumably by Hitman Pro.alert. Should I disable Hitman Pro.alert or do something different? When I ran Combofix time ago, I disabled all antivirus since many engines recognize combofix as a virus. I don't run it now. I keep it JIC.

A:Combofix Download (Not a Log)

Where did you download ComboFix from? The official site for downloading ComboFix is provided in the authorized Guide and tutorial on How to use ComboFix which redirects here.There are a number of unofficial sites which host various unauthorized versions of ComboFix (many of which are outdated) or imitations which claim to be ComboFix but redirect to downloading questionable software instead. For example, ComboFix.org and ComboFixdownload.com offer unauthorized versions but are not affiliated with the legitimate tool created by sUBs.If you did attempt to download ComboFix from the official site be aware that Bleeping Computer's hosted programs for download are trustworthy, safe and malware-free. However, depending on the product, some anti-virus software and other security scanners may flag certain programs as a threat for a variety of reasons when that is not the case. In these instances the detection or blocking by Hitman Pro.alert in your case was a "false positive". You can temporarily disable it until you download and run the tool.

When I do the same thing over and over and one day find the behavior different, I usually stop whatever I'm doing and, at a minimum, clean the system (Ccleaner) and if I'm suspicious that I've picked up something unwanted, I'll download and install the latest combofix. I used to use this and that, but over the years programs seemed to lose their integrity. Spybot for example would start installing multiple times. Adaware, of course, became crap when the company was sold. I found combofix just from reading around. I don't like that the geeks who make it can't offer a minimal plain English explanation of what they've found, but it's easy to use, gets down to business and seems to have a good rep. I know that it can cause problems, because that's the warning that comes with it. But I don't have the good fortune to have tech savvy buddies in my contact list to zip over and oversee my use of the malware scanner or anything. So I use combofix.
 
Except that, for the first time, the download didn't go as planned. I usually just get a msg saying program exists, and a question about replacing it, which I just answer with yes. This time I was told that the file was read only and needed to be re-named. That was at download.com. So I decided to go to the author's site. Bleeping Computer seems to be where the author set up his portal. But now when I click on download, I get no response! I'll try again after posting here, since I can't see what else I can do other than register here.

A:Can't download combofix!

Sounds to me like you've got yourself an infection.
Try switching web browsers or resetting the options in your browser to defaults. Also disable or remove bad extensions and add ons from within your browsers. Try to download again...there is a download here at bleeping computer and another valid one on cnet. You can also try rkill to kill some bad applications first.
However it is always reccomended that you only run these when suggested by a tech who is prepared to assist you in the virus removal process.

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.
