Q: Cannot find Combofix/HIDEC.exe error msg

Hi,
I also used CombiFix at a friends recommendation. I uninstalled it. I keep getting "Cannot find Combofix/HIDEC.exe" error msg at startup and also about once every 2hrs. Followed your instructions on anther thread to manually uninstall. It was not there. Used "Autoruns" prog as suggested but couldn't find any related entries.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Cannot find Combofix/HIDEC.exe error msg

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.)

Hi...

I looked around in this forum to find a solution for a similar problem to no avail.

Below is my HiJackThis log showing the DPF of the C:\ComboFix\HIDEC.exe.

Awhile back, while trying to troubleshoot some other issue on my laptop, I had downloaded ComboFix from BleepingComputer. Incidentally, I had downloaded it from a link in one of this forum's post. It didn't work, so I deleted it and tried downloading from going to BleepingComputer's site directly...same non-working result so I deleted it again.

Since then, though, when I start-up my laptop, an error window comes up saying that it can't find the ComboFix file. I tried fixing it in HiJackThis to no avail. I ran Smitfraud, Malwarebytes and my AVG full computer scan to no avail either. Any help would be greatly appreciated...and if you have any other suggestions by looking at my log about elminating some of the crap on my laptop to help it run faster, please don't hesitate to offer it.

Gracious thanks in advance,
sdnrgee

I use 64-bit windows 7.

I recently got infected with a Trojan:JS/Medfos virus. I looked up a tutorial on how to get rid of it, and it said to use Combofix. I didn't know that it was such a dangerous program or anything- I only found this out when I looked into the program online later! Well, it appears I ran into some good luck, and combofix got rid of the virus. When I tried to type combofix /uninstall in 'Run', though, it said that windows could not find combofix! I searched the entire computer for combofix.exe, but found nothing. There is a Qoobox folder with some things in it in the C drive, but nothing more.

I don't remember saving combofix.exe to anywhere. I think I just ran it.

I've heard that the thing to do is download combofix.exe again and save it to the desktop- not run it- and uninstall it through that. However, since I now know about the damage the program has caused, I don't want to push my luck.

What do I do? I still have the log, if that's needed.

A:Can't uninstall combofix because I can't find combofix.exe

Never mind! I did what I said above, and it worked fine. The Qoobox folder is gone.

Good morning,

I have a fakealert "Resident Shield Alert" virus that keeps popping up. I have run SAS, Malwarebytes, and Spybot in "standard" mode. It would not allow me to run Combofix in anything by "safe mode" and would not allow me to run MGTools in either mode, without another popup window stating that i didn't have the authortiy to run this, click ok. If I click ok, or the X to drop the window, it will repeat itself and eventually reboot the computer itself. I still have the REs. Shield fakealert popping up when I try to run Combo or MGTools in standard mode and running SAS, MB and Spybot only brings the same results (showing the same viruses infecting the computer as before they were run).

Hi.

I'm wondering if anyone might help me repair a Code 19 error related to my DVD drive. I noticed a yellow exclamation mark over my primary ide channel a couple weeks after we got rid of ZeroAccess ( ZeroAccess / desktop.ini(Trojan.Gen 2) ) with combofix but I ignored it cuz my computer was working fine... but I now realize I can't access my DVD drive.

I reinstalled the primary ide channel drivers and the exclamation mark is gone and XP now sees my DVD drive but the yellow exclamation mark is now over it (instead of the whole ide channel). And the driver status says... "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

I assume this has to do with the work we did using combofix.

As per info I found while googling, I have removed upper and lower filters in the registry and removed Itunes and EZ CD creater to no avail. Code 19 is still preventing XP from seeing my DVD drive.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks.

Hello,

I ran ComboFix 9-17-10 to eliminate browser redirect issues and was successful.

Sometime either before, during, or after, I lost some emails. When Trying to open Outlook it could not find the file at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst.

After checking my directories, I discovered the Users\UserName folder was gone. Fortunately, I had backed up my system on the 9th so the lost was not that great although there were some important emails there that I am trying to recover if at all possible.

I read the ComboFix.txt and do not see where the file had been deleted or repaired if I am reading it correctly. I am still searching for the location of this directory, but have not been able to locate it yet. Does ComboFix create a backup file of the files it deletes?

Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.

Is there something else I can do at this point?


Thank you.

At the end of combofix, it tries to reboot itself but freezes there unable to finish the shutdown process. I can manually pop up task manager with ctrl+alt+del and restart the computer, but disrupt combofix process(As a result, combofix will repeatedly find the same issues again and again). Except for the freeze, everything else seems normal. I am using win xp professional with sp2/3 and most windows updates installed. I did google a bit on line, somebody else also complained same thing, but obviously the moderators there didn't realize existence of this issue (most of them thought this to be very serious and directed questioner to make a bootcd).

A:combofix is able to find errors, but freezes at the reboot process

As a general policy, Bleeping Computer does not offer advice on how to run ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it or if there is a problem with the computer caused by running the tool. Per the developer, people should not be using ComboFix without being advised to do so by a trained expert (see here) who is assisting them deal with a malware problem. When issues arise due to complex malware infections, possible false detections, problems running ComboFix (i.e. stalling, hanging, crashing) or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance. When false detections are identified, experts have access to the developer and can report them so he can investigate, confirm and make corrections. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment.Also be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, OTL, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning a strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.With that said, there are circumstances ComboFix will hang, crash or stall at various stages du...

I recently was infected by a virus so I ran Malware Bytes which usually takes care of any viruses pretty well. After it scanned there was one that it said it could not be removed so I assumed it was one that would be cleaned upon reboot. I scanned again anyway after reboot several times but it comes back with nothing but my browsers keep redirecting to random sites. Previously to fix this, i've used ComboFix which has successfuly fixed that. I still had the Combofix file on my computer so I ran Rkill first (which only killed a Google Updater) then CombFix. My ZA firewall put up connection alerts several times for IE and Firefox, and either accepting or declining them, I get an error message from ComboFix that says "error - win32 only" in English and several other languages and it never starts. I have XP pro on my machine, i've downloaded the most recent one (combofix) available from here at BC and even tried to run it in safe mode. What is the problem? Can anyone help? Anyone experience this?

Ok so we are getting the following error on 20+ pc's on a domain based network. We get this error on basically every PC we log into and run combofix on. We have tried MANY rootkit removal utilities with no luck. (ie malwarebytes, combofix, sdfix, rootkit revealer, Trend rootkit, mcafee rootkit, superantispyware, etc...) The server has also been scanned... We've deleted the users profiles on the server and on the local PC's, we've even completely reloaded a PC and added it back to the domain and the message came back immediately after running combofix on a clean profile. After the error pops up it prompts us to reboot the computer and then it runs combofix again and finds nothing. If we wait a little while after that it comes back up again... If anyone has seen this or has any input it would be greatly appreciated!

A:Combofix error

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer.I take it this is about a corporate network? If so, you really should consider a reformat or having the IT department taking this down. We cannot possibly work on 20 computers at a time in this forum. Besides, while cleaning one computer, malware would spread through the network and reinfected it, and so undo all our work.To have a chance to successfully clean all machines, you will need to isolate all of them, make sure all of them are completely clean as well as any removable storage and only after that reconnect the computers.

Okay, I'm just looking to pick up a couple ideas from the kind and wonderful people here.

I use combofix fairly regularly with my job, I'm lead tech for a small district of a large corp. and I was introduced to combofix a couple years ago and found that it simplifies the cleanup and removal of certain malware to where I can take care of them in mere moments.

And so I had a customer with sysguard on it, sysguard is not a new bug, nor is it exceptionly bad, just annoying. Program wise its actually very similar to smitfraud, and can be removed using some of the same tactics. But combofix can kill it in one fell swoop, unfortunately when I ran it this last time I received the error Not Admin when it started scanning. I went though everything I could think of to find where this permission error was coming from, but its WinXP MCE sp3, there are not a lot of choices inside the Administrator Account in SafeMode.

I went and manually removed the hoaxware, much more time consuming. I decided to try combofix again just to see if the bugger was what was stopping it from running, but I get the same error. Everything else I have runs fine, even the batch and com tools that I have.

So, anyone with information would be good. I unfortunately will not be able to post any logs as I do not have access to the computer anymore. I'm mostly looking for ideas that i can try in case I run into this again.

I downloaded the newest version of Combofix on 7/8/10. When it is run it detects a Rootkit. I say OK to reboot. XP hangs during shutdown. After 4 hours it still has not shut down and rebooted. If I do a cold boot Combofix then runs but finds no problems and deletes nothing upon completion. If I reboot and run ComboFix again the same thing happens (finds a Rootkit but hangs during reboot). I put a different hard drive with XP that I know if be malware free. When Combofix is run it has the same exact issue.

My Laptop appears to have been infected with a Ransom/Highjack Virus. I cannot access the Internet with any of four browsers. I managed to rid the system of popups (using Stopzilla) but still cannot access the Web. When I try to download Combofix from a thumbdrive form another computer, I get an Error Message that my XP system is incompatible with the Combofix download, although I think I am using the correct Combofix XP link.

I'd appreciate receiving a Combofix link that is definitely compatible with XP....and a solution for downloading it to my machine. I suspect that the virus may be creating this obstacle to downloading in addition to the other problems, but I am not sure.

Hi

It says "windows 2000 is no longer supported".
Anybody else had this problem and is there a workaround or fix?
Thanks

A:ComboFix error on Windows 8.1

ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run. If you attempt to use ComboFix on 8.1, it should provide a message alert: ComboFix is not meant to run in 'Compatibility Mode' and exit. This message is intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on Windows 8.1.sUBs has recently advised that he is holding off releasing any working version of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure it works safely on that OS.

I work at an IT help center on a university campus. We offer virus cleanings and other general IT help to students, staff, and faculty. As part of our standard virus cleaning process, we run ComboFix. Starting yesterday, however, ComboFix will not run on any (6 or so machines) of the customers' machines we try to use it on. It stops with the error "Date Error: 2009-11-15, Check your settings."

The only way we have found to get it to run is by taking the customer's machine out from behind the firewall (done this on 3 machines so far). We have a machine running m0n0wall sitting between the switches that the customers' machines connect to and the internet. It has very stringent rules, allowing only ports 53 (DNS), 80 (HTTP), 443 (Secure HTTP), 21 (FTP), and 5722 (Jabber) outgoing.

We have also tried disconnecting the machines from the internet completely before running ComboFix, but that doesn't work either. This is odd, since ComboFix used to run just fine without an internet connection, usually in a reduced mode because the Windows Recovery Console isn't installed.

I found a version of ComboFix we downloaded 11/14/09 at 11:10am EST, and it runs OK right now (tested on 1 machine still behind the firewall).

Would anyone know if ComboFix was recently updated in a way that would cause this error if the computer has no or heavily firewalled internet connectivity?

RELEVANCY SCORE 37.6

Recently just downloaded combofix and going to run it on a computer here but receive the error:
---------------------------
NSIS Error
---------------------------
Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include
incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the
installer's author to obtain a new copy.

More information at:
http://nsis.sf.net/NSIS_Error
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Tried it on my workstations and it gets the same thing as well. Is there a workaround?

Nevermind, looks like the issue has been resolved!

Mods: If this is better posted somewhere else then please feel free to move it.

I had a Dell notebook which I had worked on before and after running CCleaner, MalwareBytes, Spybot S&D, Windows Security Essentials (each of which found a lot of really nasty stuff) and updating SpywareBlaster it still had some problems which none of the previous programs would detect, and after they all gave it a clean bill of health I knew something was still wrong. I then used my trusty ComboFix program which for the first time ever refused to run and gave a variety of weird error messages about "can't run on a 64-bit system", "can't run with AVG installed" and other similar things.

Well, since the computer had the Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit OS on it and didn't have AVG installed I knew something was Rotten in Denmark so I went back to the BC forums and found the TDSSKiller, which I downloaded and ran. See the log below for the results:

A:ComboFix Gives Error Messages And Won't Run

This is not a ComboFix log and the small portion of it I posted is for illustrative purposes only; I am not asking for any help, just sharing my experience. I hope that is not a violation of the rules...
