trouble downloading spybot

Q: trouble downloading spybot

Hello, My internet explorer web page is reset everytime I turn on my computer. I have tried without success to download spybot. I have also tried downloading a "mini" program which would help me to download spybot, but I have had no success.

Is there anything I can do to download spybot?

Thank you.

Preferred Solution: trouble downloading spybot

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.)

2 Issues in this post

#1
Had to replace the hardrive in my wife's computer so need to download AdAware Personal SE and Spybot Search & Destroy. I did a search to find links for each program but am skeptical about the sites. For example: I clicked on a link for Spybot Search and Destroy but a page opened up in Spyware Doctor for the download so I was skeptical about performing the download. The same occurred with Adaware Personal SE and different Adware sites appeared.

#2 I did select one that appeared to be AdAware Personal and downloaded it to a folder however, when I attempted to execute the file I received the following message:
C:downloads/aawsepersonal.exe is not a valid win32 application
The file would not install.

Can anyone provide me with valid links for each of the programs and also answer what the "not valid win32 application" means? Thanks

My computer has been so slow that I cant even open web pages at times.  I went to the tutorial for speeding up computers and spybot search and destroy was recommended.  I googled it and clicked on the link to download and ended up with 138 viruses that I removed with Malware Bytes.  I ended up clicking on a malware link that represented itself as spybot s&d.  Does anyone have a good link for this?  Im afraid to search for this myself after this incident.  Thanks!

A:I tried downloading what I thought was Spybot S&D and I got 138 viruses

Hi -
MBAM and your Antivirus (please list it) will generally out-perform Spybot S&D at the moment.
The program has been "down rated" for the last year or 2 now.
It still exists in the older versions of the help sections -
 
HERE is a safe download of the latest version from File Hippo if you do want it -
 
Thank You -

The first time I used Spybot 1.5.1.17, right after download, it worked fine but since then every time I open the software it causes my computer to act strange. I went to the Spybot forum and I see a lot of posts saying that they are having trouble with some of the newer versions of Spybot.

Is there a version that you think it would be safe for me to use? Also, should I use HiJack This instead of Spybot? I was able to get the following scan log when it worked the first time. Would it be safe for me to let Spybot fix what it found?

Thanks for any help and I hope I am posting in the right forum.

I have some kind of malware that is redirecting me to ad sites and has placed a google desktop icon on the lower right hand section of my screen. I first tried running mbam and it is blocked. I also tried spybot and it is blocked as well. I have McAfee Total Protection which I ran in safe mode with networking. It came up with nothing. 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.

I installed and ran spybot this afternoon, and now I am in BIG trouble because my DH's favorite game won't work and he is mad as heck at me. His game is counterstrike I think. I get an error message that some kernals 64 thing is missing and a couple others. I told him not to until I could consult here but he went and Undeleted everything in the norton protected recycle bin ( including the spyware I deleted already) anyway I'm screwed here and I don't know where to start. I tried using the recover feature on spybot and it did exactly nothing. Can someone help me figure out what to do so DH will stop yelling at me over his stupid malfunctioning game?
 

A:spybot trouble

Are you sure about the game?.. I haven't heard of any other people having this problem..
Many have SB and play Counterstrike..

If it's some "free ware" game, then chances are high it had spyware in it, and should have been removed any way...

Did DH, update his game today as well?..
The only thing you did was SpyBot?... Nothing else?..
I just hesitate to blame SB, as many people have it, and few if any say it "killed" their game.

So I've used spybot for years and always been happy with it. But as of lately, I've noticed that the updater hardly ever works correctly. It will start the update and then just leave the update window up, presumably doing its thing, but it will never finish. When it does finish, it usually gives a "bad checksum" status and the updates aren't installed. What is this all about? I've experienced this problem on multiple computers, most of which I know to be problem-free otherwise. Is there something I can do to fix the program, or is there another update method?

I took down my firewall briefly to make a couple transfers. Well I did get the spybot worm and a pinfi virus. This make be get quite a few pops ups and a bit of spyware. I used google and managed to clean them, or atleast I'm not getting those pop ups again. The problem there after is I recieved another virus, the Trojan.Cachecachekit virus. This one is said to help the spybot one. I'm still getting a couple pop ups but I dunno what to do anymore. This is what I have done.

Restarted in Safe mode
turned off system restore
norton anti virus scan (found 0 viruses)
ad-aware
spybot
regedit (following instructions from symatec)

still I see no spyware/virus but I can do some of the following:
Open up javascripts (anything that opens something in a new window)
get to my task manager (icon display but that's all)
certain programs don't work fully (hijack this is one of them, I can get a log made)

downloading its not there, the download screen just disapears
upon completion even though box isnt checked,

so i tried just to run it and it gets to point where window pops up
to install and click instal and window vanishes and nothing happens

ive check temp folders and cleared them ive tried system restore

and it does this on everything thats downloaded or rather attempted

its funny because there is no errors that come up it just acts as though
nothing happened , created a folder for downloads and assigned everything to download to it and following downloads nothings there..

I tried downloading other things, such as Flash, but everytime the download box opens, it closes alomst a nano second after it opens. Then same thing happens whenever I try to download things from my email too!

Is there some way to fix this problem?

A:Downloading Trouble

Certainly. Make sure all drivers are installed. And try getting Microsoft updates then downloading and installing other software.

The worst case scenerio would be : you had a bad stick of ram and windows installation was corrupt. However I think you will be able to solve this problem with windows updates.

I don't know whether this is an XP or an IE thing...

I inhereted this laptop at my company. I have full admin rights to it, btw.

This is kind of tough to explain. When I go to download certain types of programs - not files with a direct link to the file, but something that's supposed to run an installer on my machine - I don't get a prompt to download the software and the files don't start to download.

For example, go to http://download.sidestep.com/get/k00...&param=onlyGet

If you click I Agree, it should start to download a file. Except on my machine, it won't. I've had this same problem at other sites and it's becoming a major issue - I can't DL the webconferencing software we use, either.

I've gone into IE tools/Security/Custom Level and made sure that everything in ActiveX will download (or at least prompt me), but I don't get the pop-up box to download these types of programs. I've dropped my security levels to the bare minimums, but that didn't help either.

For what it's worth, the Sidestep site listed above gives me this error message:

You may be infected with Poweliks or Xswkit (aka Gootkit, a Poweliks clone) which typically affects the ability to browse or download files using Internet Explorer and causes PowerShell error alerts. Task Manager typically shows numerous occurrences of (COM Surrogate) dllhost.exe or dllhst3g.exe. If using a 64-bit version of Windows, then these entries will be listed as dllhost.exe *32 or dllhst3g.exe *32. These processes are known to spawn and consume a large amount of system resources. When attempting to download files in Internet Explorer you may receive the message "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded." or you may see a pop-up alert advising that "powershell (powershell.exe) has stopped working".If you are having trouble downloading files with Internet Explorer, follow these instructions to re-enable downloads/reset all Security zones to default.

Hi all.

I couldn't find any threads that cover my exact issue and I assume that this is the correct section of the board to post in... anyway, my issue is as follows:

IE8 won't allow me to download any programs. The download box pops up as normal and the progress bar goes to 100% but then it just closes and the download is nowhere to be seen. The search function won't find it either; the program is not on my computer.

The only bits of advice I've found online is to download Firefox (which would be great if it wasn't for the initial downloading problem) and also altering permissions in the Component Services bit (dcomcnfg), which did nothing.

I've also turned off Windows Firewall and am using Kaspersky 2011 with all permissions set so that it doesn't delete stuff automatically.

I also had an issue with uTorrent that I believe to be related: Whenever I clicked on a link to download a torrent, uTorrent wouldn't pick up on the fact that I was attempting to add a torrent to the download list. I was able to add a new torrent by inputting the URL but they would invariably fail.

(Foolishly, I had a bit of a tantrum and uninstalled uTorrent so as to install BitComet but then realised that I couldn't download that anyway. I blame quitting smoking.)

Any ideas?

Hi everybody.

My wife is a medical transcriptionist and has to download wav. files from a FTP site every day. Recently we switched to Cox cable internet and she started having problems downloading files. The files can range in size and generally when the files are 30mb or greater, the download never completes now.

My question is would this problem be on our end as a result of a firewall or router or something like that, or would it be an issue with the file, the FTP website, or the new ISP? We also just started using Vonage too.

Thank you for any help.

Sometiems it works, sometimes it doesnt, its gonna download and it stops at 99%.... i turned off every firewall but its still doing it, even in IRC, when i try to download something, it stops at 99%... then if i resume the download, its gonna finish downloading but the file is always corrupt and not working. What's the problem? I'm almost sure its not a virus, it's some high security thing but i dont know what, i got nvidia Forceware but i turned it off... even the windows firewall with SP2. Can anyone help me? It's really annoying, thanks!

In response to your Report:

If you have solved your issue you can post back the solution and mark the thread as solved using the Mark Solved button above your thread; this lets other people know the solution and lets the helpers know that you no longer need assistance.

Also be be advise that the Malware Removal section is very busy due to the high number of infections and it can take 24 hours or more to get a response and if your thread has been lost you can also bump it up by posting to it again. Patience is required as their is only a limited number of quality helpers giving their time for free. Also if you still need help with TIS 2010 or having your HJT log read and checked for infections you can post it.

I am using a Compaq Pressario 5900Z (600 mz) w/ 256 ram and W98.
Recently the computer has stopped recognizing jpg or jpeg files, instead it records said files as a bmp image which I find extremely hard or impossible to transfer to a web page or document.
I need help!
