"kamsoft-ckvoexe-malware". this is what i got after typing this strange autorun that popped up after i started having restart and hardisk AND GAMING PROBLEMS!
I tried to follow instructions i got on google but now it's seems to have gotten pissed.the symptoms before were as follows-
1-kaspersky failure (so uninstalled it 4 my cousins norton 2k4, huge mistake)
2-oblivion would hang (it later completely stopped working after enough attempts)
3-my hardisk would open on a new window
4-I recently had to remove heavy infections of antivirgear and spysheriff so i think there still traces of the malware duo.

Preferred Solution: Help. Please. My Work Depends On It.

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 all!
I have a serious problem with a program that my job uses. It is a virtual machine, which allows me to run a separate "machine" within my own. They use this so my personal side of my pc doesn't interfere with the business side, and vice versa. Well, I have downloaded the files several times now, and they appear to dl just fine. Until I run the setup.exe. Then I get an error "1334" every time. I have seen some forums online about this issue, but none that were helpful. The error tells me that it could be a network problem, or a problem with the package. The package comes in .cab files, and each time I re download the package, a different cab malfunctions. My trainer thinks it could be my security, so I disabled it and re did the download. No good. I worked with tech support til almost 1am last night to no avail. I was informed that if I could not figure out what was wrong with my system, or obtain a different system, my job may be at stake. Can someone help me please??

A:Help! My Job Depends On It!

Can you be more specific as to what virtual machine, where you downloaded from, and what security may be interfering.

Hello 2low2rl and welcome,

One of the infections onboard is interfering with HijackThis. We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting the extent the malware has infiltrated.

As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help....

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.

Oh please someone save my bacon!!!!!

I have a new job with a Time Share Resort. In these trying times, I'm trying to make the best impression I can. I am building an Excel Spread sheet that will allow others to enter data that I will then compile and create reports with.I just can't figure out how to write this formula or if it can even be accomplished. I have 1 column (Column A) that other users will populate with Room numbers. I would then like the second column (Column B) to auto populate with a Home owner's association number and a 3rd column (Column C) to auto populate with the average rack rate for that room that referenced from hidden columns. I have 3 pre-populated columns hidden, titled (Column R) Room Numbers (Column S) HOA numbers and (Column T) average Rack Rates. The Rows in the columns (R, S, and T) reference each other: example: If R1 is Room # 1001, then S1 is HOA 1, and T1 is $212.00. So if someone types in 1001 in A7, then the data that corresponds from Column R, in this case 1001 will reference Column S and Column T and auto populate that info into Column B7 and Column C7, respectfully. Is this impossible to do? Or is there a simple formula or macro that can be written to accomplish this?

I truly, truly appreciate any assistance I can get!

I hope someone will help. I have wasted so much time today.
Someone else used my computer (I know, I know) and got the stupid malware newnet on it. I went and run the "fix" for it which then promptly destroyed all my internet connections and I cannot get them back. I have no idea how to proceed. Going through the IE wizard does nothing. I have DSL, and of course normally just have to click on the IE icon to open Google (or whatever)....now no page comes up no matter what I choose.
I cannot reinstall Windows completely as I have not backed up in a long time and it would take me days to complete that....so that's not an option at this moment. (I have to work on this computer in the morning.) Can someone plllllllease tell me what to do?

Hi folks. depends.exe will not function on my Vista Ultimate x64. Any program I try to start has an error finding IESHIMS.DLL. The program will not profile as a consequence. There is a search sequence that could be modified but this DLL is not within the list.

Search results as a screenshot is attached. There are about 10 of these DLLs with varying dates, locations and versions. The machine runs very well otherwise; no administrative errors in the logs.

The reason this program is being used was spurred on by a Nero tech who supposedly found an error in the Nero 9 diagnostics CAB file. The complaint was that I could not view an MOV in Showtime. I think it is the file which was downloaded from Frostwire. Nero does everything else perfectly. I would still like to get depends to work for general knowledge and future diagnostics.

I cannot find this problem anywhere on the net or in this forum. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recently I was working on a document with MS Word 2007 when I suddenly received several save related errors regarding my C drive.

The auto-recovery kicked in and I closed the program and restarted the computer. When I returned to open the document in Word, the file was missing. When I tried to open it from the recently opened files drop down, it said "the file could not be found c:\blah"

From my research and from this link:
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/632612-disappearing-word-files.html

I think this issue sounds like the Marker virus- and the date that it happened also seems to be evidence to this fact.
A .tmp file also now has a missing path name which I suspect is the one associated with the file I need.
In addition there is an xml file for what I believe may be my document that remanis however it wont open either- Word says this file is corrupt.
Can anyone offer any solution or ideas on how to recover this document?

Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that.

Ok gang, I have one that really is throwing me for a loop. One computer in my company is having difficulties in sending e-mails through Outlook 2007 running POP3. The part that has me scratching my head is that everything works fine while the computer is connected here in our office, but whenever she leaves, she has intermittent sending issues... it just hangs in the ourbox. It works for the first few minutes then stops sending them out. I have searched all through the Microsoft site and couldn't find anything that related.

Any ideas on what to look for?

A:Outlook 2007 - e-mail stuck in outbox (depends on ISP)...

I had a similar issue, though it may not be the same.

Some ISP's (like AT&T, who I hate and despise and upon whom I heap curses and incantations of evil) won't let you use any SMTP server other than theirs to send mail, even if the e-mail account isn't with them. You have to go through a whole rigamaroll to set it up.

But like I said, your issue may be (and probably is) something different. Are there any error messages?

Hi barmardiv,

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.

------

Let's start with Combofix.

1. Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2

* IMPORTANT !!! Place combofix.exe on your Desktop
2. Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with ComboFix.
You can get help on disabling your protection programs here

3. Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
Note: Windows Vista users will have to right-click on the file and select "Run as Administrator"

4. As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.

Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.



The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

Sometimes things completely freeze and pushing the reset button is the only way out...I've gone as far as downloading Avasts 'emergency startup' disc and booting from it , thinking there might be a virus, but it found nothing (although I'm wondering if it's loading a small portion of windows, which if it is, and a virus or malware is in that small portion, booting to the disc and running the anti-virus software is pointless...maybe I should try it with a linux based emergency disc?) ....

But I saw a topic here with the exact same problem, although the solution was quite different. (Here: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/944096-taskkill-does-not-work-batch.html )

I can't recall now why I thought about the firewall, but as you guys have helped me in the past, I'd like to leave some information here for people who Google the following problems and think they have found a site with a solution, only to find that the site wants your credit card number. Bah!

Here are the errors I had:

1. Net stop: System Error 5 has occurred. Access is Denied

2. Tasklist or Taskkill: The RPC server is unavailable

Both of my problems were caused by the Comodo firewall on a new PC running XP SP3.
The startup command file calls various other command files and I got the above errors when they executed the Net, Taskkill and Tasklist commands.

When I entered the commands (net stop, taskkill, tasklist) at a command prompt, they worked.

The problem was because the Comodo firewall had a "Defence +" setting for a "Sandbox" that was enabled.

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??

im using windows pro sp2. last week i had downloaded something and then i started to get advertisements even when a browser wasnt open. it was about 3 different ones but went off every 30 secs to 5 mins. i went through some windows files in safe mode deleted some things here n there and ending processes.
i was successful in stopping the advertisements. although not long afterwards the internet would stop after 5 mins and i would have to keep restarting. once i tried to system restore it wont go back past the day i started having this internet problem. im not sure if its related to the previous problem or if i deleted a file i should not have?

here is my hijack this log...

Friend's computer started up with a Critical Warning image and telling him to download this antispyware thing in order to remove it. Some files that I found connected with this are: FNTCACHE, critical_warning.html, AVR09, winhelper.dll, and 41. I tried running DDS but to no success. Same with Rootkit Repealer. I managed to install and run Hitman Pro 3.5 and Malwares Bytes Antimalware, but both were stopped after a few seconds within scanning. Afterwards, they didn't work at all. Couldn't install Superantispyware or CCleaner. Spybot Search and Destroy was changed to read only and Ad-Aware wouldn't work. Any suggestions? Is there any program out there that manages to get rid of this?

A:Scanners won't work, DDS won't work, and all programs that involve removing files becomes blocked after being used once

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes. I was trying to allow for connection on port 3689, but everything I did was unsuccessful. Any suggestions for any of these problems I'm having?

I have a network drive, which I set up to save a copy of a folder for offline use using the instructions here:
Working with network files when you are offline - Windows Help

I am not able to find any option for setting the drive to work online or work offline. I did manage to set it up to work offline yesterday, but forgot how. Now, I cannot find any work online or work offline button. Is it in a different place in 10?

A:work offline / work online button with network location

Reading the net, it appears that this is a pretty buggy implementation of working with network files offline. I was able to effectively use the offline files feature on another win10 machine. When I unplugged the ethernet cable, I could work with the offline files, and then when I plugged it back in, the computer went online and I synced the files. Back on the original machine, I turned off the 'enable offline files' option, rebooted, turned on the 'enable offline files' button, and rebooted. After this, the machine was still working offline. It said that the user had chosen to work offline (which was true at an earlier point). But there is no option anywhere to work online.

I followed the instructions to reinitialize the offline files cache as described here: How To Reinitialize The Offline Cache in Windows 7 . I found it elsewhere, and the general instructions are repeated on the internet in various places. This enabled the laptop to use the cached files online again. However, I still cannot manually get into and out of the 'work offline' mode. If anybody has any ideas, I would be grateful. If there is a registry value that would put things into and out of the 'work offline' mode, I could at least write a batch file to do this.

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

I have done a search and realize there are several threads here that address this, but I haven't been able to solve this. This is the same laptop that I posted a thread about with the bad power button. Not sure if the two are related, since the two problems seemed to crop up around the same time. Anyway, I've tried HP's troubleshooting, but haven't gotten the speakers to work. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, checked the volume (duh), and attempted to do a system restore. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that system restore had been apparently been disabled for some time, and there were no restore points to choose from. I've googled this of course, and besides the things I've tried, it seems that either the headphone jack switch is stuck or the speakers are dead. Would both speakers give out at the same time? I've tried jiggling/rapidly pulling a headphone plug in and out to dislodge the switch, no dice. Anymore ideas I can try? I've been using external speakers plugged into the headphone jack, but this gets annoying after awhile.

I'm running a Dell E510 with XP Media Center Edition, and I teach College courses online using WebCT. I won't go into an anti-WebCT rant right now, however tempting that is.
Anyway, several major features of WebCT simply won't work on my computer, because they depend on Java.

Most (but not all) Java applets simply won't run on my computer. I click the button for, say, WebCT email, and nothing happens. At all.

I have uninstalled everything Java related and installed the latest Java. My anti-Pop-Up software is disabled. I have done everything short of sacrifice chickens to Satan. Nothing I've found elsewhere on this forum works.

My College tech guys have given up, though one of them whispered in my ear the other day that I'm not the only one with this problem. I could ask WebCT, but that would need a seance.

Anyone got any suggestions, as this is driving me totally nuts and making my job impossible?

I'm not sure what is going on with this computer.  It's running slowly and doing things that are not normal for it.  For example, the software I use for work is giving me login errors, I am gettting an error with Outlook saying my mailbox has been temporarily moved.  Internet Explorer is running slowly.  Chrome has crashed several times.  My computer restarted itself.  Etc, etc. 
I ran Malwarebytes and it didn't find anything, so I figured someone with a lot more knowledge than me should probably look it over before I go too far.  One thing that may be of note: its a 143GB hard drive with 19.5GB of free space.

I purchased a computer at a garage sale a couple of weeks a ago for a couple of bucks. the older couple said it was dead, but I liked the case and was planning on moving my internet computer into that case. it was a micron millenia max gs 800 and the only thing wrong was the video card was dead. I put in an old video card, cleaned up the windows os and the computer ticks like a new watch. according to the micron website, the motherboard is a tazer 2, tyran s1854 http://support.mpccorp.com/apps/specs.asp?ID=3176 the total pc133 memory is 768mb. my current internet computer (pIII 500) is limited to 384mb of memory so I'm thinking about buying 3 sticks of pc133 256 memory for this micron (it has 2 sticks of 64 mb for only a total of 128). the micron website and several other memory websites say that this computer will use pc133, cl-3, unbuffered, non-parity, 168 pin, 3.3 volt sdram dimm.http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartspecs.Asp?mtbpoid=3A9D9256A5CA7304&WSMD=Millennia+MAX+GS+800&WSPN=CT178220 since pc133 is so expensive new, I want to try and find some used memory, but comparing all the pc133 (on ebay for instance) and trying to figure out which will work is ridiculous. my question, will most pc133 cl-3 unbuffered 256 mb work in this computer? what are the important specs, what should I look for in the specs so that I get the right memory so it will boot? thx
