Q: Solved: c:\windows\system32\mshta.exe

I started using Panda Cloud Antivirus 3.01 a couple of weeks ago.

This morning, it brought up an alert that it was blocking this file - see below image of its event report.

I haven't gone to any dubious sites nor downloaded anything.

The computer is running Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit.

I run AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware weekly.

Other than 2 - 3 adware tracking cookies, nothing is found.

Is this a false positive?

Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.-- Post back with the results of the file analysis.

Every time I am using Internet Explorer I get pop up windows with no options for "closing" or "minimizing" with the window. The only way I've found to even get them off the screen is to use CTRL+ALT+DEL and close the mshta.exe task that is running. This will get the window to close temporarily but it will come back later if I am still surfing I.E. It seems that only time when the Ads come up is when mshta.exe is generated. I've read that I shouldn't delete mshta because Windows uses it to run many HTML applications. However, I don't know what program might be calling mshta to generate these ads. I've run all my anti-virus and adware software. Is it a virus? ad-ware? What program might be using mshta? How can I get rid of it? I would appreciate any help because I've tried everything I can think of.

For a couple months now, I've noticed my laptop encounters alot of slowdowns- and found the problem to be Mshta.exe in my task manager running 15 copies of itself.

I have done checks and scans, and it is in the right place in windows that I can see. Its listed in 4 places when I searched:

MSHTA.EXE-331DF029.pf in C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
Mshta.exe in C:\WINDOWS\system32
Mshta.exe in C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
mshta.exe.mui in C:\WINDOWS\system32\en-us

I do not think this is a virus, however, it is VERY ANNOYING when it runs 15 of itself for no reason. Usually I can go in my task manager and just kill them all. Sometimes they stay dead, sometimes hours later they will come back? Its weird!

What I'd like to know is if it's possible and safe for me to remove this file off my computer. It doesn't seem to have any purpose other then to be annoying?

I'm Running Windows XP Home edition SP 3 :) Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] Mshta.exe, Is it safe to get rid of in Windows XP?

I don't have a solution to your problem but I do know that mshta.exe is considered a critical system file. The locations you mentioned are normal and it should also be found in c:\windows\system32\dllcache. By default .mha files, and possibly others, are associated to mshta.exe.

My computer has been running slower lately. I found this forum and read about someone else having a similar problem, but not exactly here. In the log from the link I posted, SifuMike, posted this:Lets check your HOSTS file. It's located at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. You can open it up in Notepad. If it's just some lines on top with a # in front of it and followed by 127.0.0.1 localhost, then you don't need to post it;however, if there are others following 127.0.0.1 localhost, you may have to fix it. Post it here if that's the case.I opened up my HOSTS file at that location and there were other lines following 127.0.0.1 localhost. This is what was in there:# Copyright ? 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names.

The entries you see below the local host are really BAD sites which are being redirected back to nowhere (your computer), so they can't call out. I don't know what put those entries in, quite possibly AVG or some other application you've used. They're a good thing. But ...In some computers, mine included, if a large hosts file is used, the DNS service has to be disabled. Otherwise the computer can get very, very slow for the internet access.More and better details herehttp://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htmand a quote:Editors Note: in most cases a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) tends to slow down the machine. This only occurs in W2000/XP/Vista. Windows 98 and ME are not affected.To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: PropertiesClick the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"Select: Manual, or Disabled (recommended) click Apply/Ok and restartrestart = REBOOT is a must. You can also stop and then disable the DNS service from Control Panel.See about the middle of that writeup. If I were you, I'd read the whole article. The thing that puzzles me a bit is that your hosts file isn't all that long and it sure is missing a lot of other very bad things.

I read someone else's post with the same problem.. (he didn't have the shell32.dll one though) and I did what the other posts said. Here is my HijackThis Log. Please help me. And also.. lately Spybot - Search & Destroy hasn't been finding any spyware or anything at all. It used to find something every time I ran it.. but not anymore. I don't know if that has to do with these changes though. My Sims 2 game won't start anymore either. It reads the CD but it never starts. The game isn't scratched or anything.. maybe I just need to clean the drivers. But I thought since one of these changes says drivers in it.. that might be the reason why my game won't start. If you have any tips on how to help my computer run a little faster.. that'd be great too. I feel like my computer goes slower than it should. It's also been making a lot of weird noises lately. I'm sorry for listing so many problems.. I don't know if I'm supposed to post these here.. but if you could help me with all of that.. that would be really great.

I have a new problem now though.. I can't watch videos on Mtv.com. When I pause them, they won't load anymore. Only if I play it.. and I don't have a very fast internet so.. it loads slow. So it always stops every 5 seconds. It's very annoying. It did it before.. but then worked sometimes.

Hello this is my first post here, and hopefully it'll be the start of something good for me. I recently started having a problem with my computer where it started having popups in IE (I use Firefox) and my system resources keep getting eaten up by a program called MSHTA.exe. I can ctrl + alt + del and end the process, but it just comes back 15 min. later or so. I'm not very good with computers, so thats the only solution i can come up with haha but i'm looking for a more permanent one and hope someone here can help me.

Hi,

I've got the same problem, but whenever the Sitebar application pops up, so does a window with C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe pops up as well, and from there on in, I cannot access the internet. I can only access it for about 5 mins after restarting. I've tried all the steps above. Here's my Hijack this log:

Recently on starting up my computer, running XP, a box appears with this heading within a black background, with white letters referring to "PsKill v1.12 - Terminates processes on local or remote systems", etc, and "Unable to kill process mgrs: Process does not exist." Multiple lines of type follow the above, ending with "C:\WINDOWS\privacy_danger The system cannot find the file specified."

If I ignore this, or delete this box by striking the X in the upper right corner, my computer seems to work normally.

What does this mean? What if anything should I do about it?

Hey folks!


When I started my computer today, i was told it could not boot due to \windows\system32\config\system being missing or not working properly. It explained I could pop in my Windows XP cd to go to the repair thingy(don't actually know the name - my computer settings is in Danish, I hope you understand). And nothing happened and I was told to write EXIT to restart the computer and other than than a cmd promt where i could type commands. Due to not being that tech savy, i decided to get online and search around for a way around it, if it existed.

I read that others had the same problem and various other stuff how to solve it. Most popular the "copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config" and "chkdsk :c /r"

I hereafter tried the chkdsk c: /r method seeing as moving/copying things around with no idea what i was doing could be a bad idea.
It ran the CheckDisk test, and said some problems were fixed. But when i restarted the computer the problem was still there.

Now my question. Should I attempt the copy method, and is there anything special I should note? OR is there another way to do this. A windows install on top of my own? But I really don't wanna lose any data, as I have a lot of work on it.


Some details which might be important:
1. The XP disk I used to start the repair is not the XP disk used for installing the XP version i have on the computer. (I had a copy of XP, and then bought a new computer with XP al... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Cannot boot windows - \windows\system32\config\system missing or broken

Update:

With some help from my brother(who is a lot better at this than me) we tried the copy thing. Moved the old system file away, and brought in the system.bak from the repair folder, renamed it to system and rebooted.

Now it didn't say anything about the system file missing or being broken, but came up with the windows loading screen, then went to black and for a very bried moment came up with a blue screen with some text on it before it restarts.
I can't make out what it says on the blue screen because it is so very brief.

And now it just reboots over and over again. Have we done something completely wrong?

Hello,

When I run the AVG Scan, I get the following result:
1- "C:\windows\system32\shell32.dll", result = Change, status = Changed
2- "C:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe", result = Change, status = Changed

This has made my internet extremely slow and sometimes (more often than usual) my computer freezes or applications take a long time to load.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

It is normal that AVG shows that files have changed. These changes could be due to windows updates etc. You should only worry if they also show as infected.

Greetings experts,

Short story: I got called in to the exec office. Their computer gives me the following error message after boot-up, right after the desktop appears:


Quote:




The application or DLL C:\windows\system32\uxtheme.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.




After clicking on the OK button a few times (three or four), the error window stops appearing. No icons appear on the desktop, but the desktop image is there. There is no taskbar, no start menu, etc.

Manually running Explorer (Ctrl-Alt-Del -> Task Manager -> File -> Run -> explorer) generates the error message a few more times (three or four).

Manually running CMD works fine. I was able to navigate around in the command window and run apps manually. The error messages come up at least three times for every app run.

Anyone have a fix for this? A good uxtheme.dll file perhaps?

Good morning,

I have a question about what appears to be a BHO called C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\geedd.dll that I am asked to allow onto my computer every 5 minutes or so. I run a program called WinPatrol, and it is asking me if it can install this BHO - when I say no, it just reappears again in several minutes.

I'm not sure where I picked it up - but it is there!

I searched this name and it appeared to be part of the Vundo.exe trojan - but a Norton scan and the FixVundo tool both say that this is not on my computer.

I have tried to just remove it from WinPatrol's BHO list - no luck. It just comes back.

I've also restarted and the problem continues.

I'd really appreciate any help on what this is and how to remove it. I disabled System Restore before running the NAV tool on their instructions.

I run Win XP-Home, SP1
2.66 GgHz HHD
Pentiium 4
512 RAM

Would allowing WinPatrol to install this then allow me to remove it with the NAV tool?

Or - would just uninstalling WinPatrol stop that message - maybe since it isn't actually installed yet, that might end the whole situation?

I'd appreciate any advice. I don't have Hi Jack This, but I will download it and run it if that would help. I do have Ad-Aware SE and I can post the file from that - no indication this geedd.dll is there - it was too long to be included with this message.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

I actually have had this problem for a while; I just didn't realize it was a virus until recently when my computer began working very slowly and would not install new software. Each time my computer would start up I would get the message "c:\windows\system32\xlibgfl254.dll"- but then I would notice this same message in the box would appear with different applications titled at the top of the box- such as DW20ESE-Bad Image; sometimes it would happen with a newly installed software program (Blackberry, WebCam...). Now I can't successfully install the software with new hardware I purchased. Each time I try to install a program it stops midway and this error box occurs. I am not the most tech savvy person, but I will do my best to follow the advice given. Thank you in advance!!

Can someone please help me remove this....
I tried downloading the removal tool from Norton but it didn't detect it. Then i tried it in Safe mode and my computer messed up. It went to the log in screen and when i clicked my name the computer went black and didn't do anything... The only thing it had on the screen was Safe Mode in every corner and a really long file name that ran across the top that said somthing about Windows XP service pack.
It took me along time to figure out how to get it back in normal mode.

So here is my Hijack This Log if that helps:

My computer was infected with perfect keylogger, it was trying to get me to buy it and i recently got rid of it. During the time when it was infecting my computer it kept me from using most of the tools in my control panel and kept me from changing my time and date. Now it's gone but whenever I try to access these tools i get an error message saying Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe. I used AVG to remove it and I can see in my virus vault it says found registry key with reference to infected file C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe. I've tried to restore it but it says it failed to restore some files and the "restore as.." button isn't active at all. I've searched every forum I can find and whenever someone has the same problem as me it always turns out to have a different solution. Someone please help!
 

A:Solved: Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

Try running:

sfc /scannow

If you have an install disk, keep it handy.

It may replace things without prompting. Test after it completes.

If you still get the rundll32.exe missing error, download, unzip and copy the file in this attachment to the system32 folder.

Hi!
Setting: I have two identical Notebooks - bought at the same time at the same shop -  that have two internal harddisk slots. They had win 7 preinstalled. I chose the 64 bit version.


As time went by I changed the harddisks 3 or 4 times over the years. The last two changes were to SSD.
One old HD is gone, as it overheated. (But I was able to secure all data.)
The current problem:
To change to the new SSD on NB1 (Notebook1) I cloned the "C"-Partition from the other notebook.
Then I put the SSD in NB1's harddisk slot. In the other harddisk slot there is an old harddisk once running this notebook.
First time it didn't boot, whyever, but second time it did boot. It booted from the new SSD. (I changed the boot-order in the bios appropriatly. And the old harddisk has a defect MBR, so can't boot anyway.)
Two days ago I accessed the old harddisk, where I had a folder "windows.old" which actually contained a quite complete copy of an old state of that harddisks original partition back when it was the OS running harddisk. When trying to access the
user's folder on that old harddisk, it said I need administrator right, then it will be made permanently accessible to me (my current user on the SSD logged in.) It took some minutes, and everything was alright.
When ending work I put the system in "Hibernation" (Ruhezustand).
Yesterday when starting the system, the starting screen was in English "Windows is continued" instead of... Read more
