Unable to Locate Trojans

Q: Unable to Locate Trojans

Greetings,

I've recently come across some trojans that were found by Symantec Endpoint Protection and Avira auto-scans. The notifications popped up after I brought my laptop out of hibernation (which is how I normally leave it when unused).

Symantec tells me that cleaning and quarantining was not successful with a handful of the trojans and is located under:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\ ________

but I cannot find them.

I am currently running Firefox 3.6.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you,

Alan

Preferred Solution: Unable to Locate Trojans

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.)

A: Unable to Locate Trojans

Hello,did Avira say they were quarantined?? Do you have these 2 AV's active??C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\_______ <<---- This is what it shows as a location??Let's gt another opinion...Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.Before you save it rename it to say zztoy.exe alternate download link 1alternate download link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware results in any error messages, check the Help file's list of error codes within its program folder first.

A:Unable to locate DLL

Do you still have the installation CD that you used to install the OS. If so I would try either doing a repair install of the OS by booting to the CD or go to the recovery console by booting to the cd and run a chkdsk /r and see if it can find and repair any bad sectors of the drive that may have been point to the DLL location.

I am confused!! Please help.

Many thanks

Hi,

You may have an issue with DNS resolution of specific sites. This happens from time to time, and is normally an ISP issue. Let's see this:

Start, Run, CMD

TRACERT <URL of problem site>

<URL of problem site> is the actual URL of the site you're having issues with.

Right click in the command prompt, use Select All, and paste the results into a message here.

A:Unable to Locate Component

Your first move should be to turn on Windows Update and get your system updated. You are still on SP2 which is no longer supported by Microsoft, the Windows Update will get you up to SP3. That alone may cure the problem.

Follow this guide to slipstream your copy of XP with SP3, that can then be used to run the System File Checker which will replace any missing or damaged files.

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/Slipstreaming_Windows_XP_Service_Pack_3.html

To run the system file checker Click on Start and type sfc /scannow (exactly as written here with the gap) into the search box and hit enter. Follow the prompts and insert the slipstreamed disc when requested.

A:ypager.exe - unable to locate dll help!!!!!

Hiyas

Looks like you're using either WinNT or Win2000, so Msconfig is out of the question. Looks like Regedit is the only other option unless you have something like TweakUI loaded.

Click Start -> Run -> Type Regedit -> Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Open the Software key -> Scroll down to Microsoft and open it -> Windows -> Current version -> Run. Check what's starting in the Run key, look for your ypager and delete the reg value. That should sort it out hopefully.

Good luck

I was browsing the net the other day and window popped up saying that AVG had detected a virus in C:/Documents and Settings and that a scan should be run to get rid of it. I shut down all of my programs and ran the anti-virus to search in C:/Documents and Settings. It came up empty. I then checked for updates, found one, and then restarted AVG and had it scan the whole C drive while I did some housework and showered. Coming back to the computer about an hour later I saw that AVG had "Encountered an unknown error and had to be terminated".

I have Windows XP, 60GB HDD. I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary, just left the room, and came back in to a rebooted computer, at a screen wanting me to insert my system disk. Well, I've tried a number of things, and all end up at the same thing. I end up with an error window saying in the menu bar "lsass.exe unable to locate component" and message box saying "this application has failed to start because" and then nothing else except the ok button. I have tried safe mode, repair console, debugging mode, setup, and even tried copying the file from the system disk to the system32 file. I've also run across something else while trying to get around this. Don't know if it's because of the many ways I've tried to get around it.

A:Unable To Locate Component Notification

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. ? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.? Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the ... Read more

I have little or no experience with Microsoft Access and I need to be dope-slapped. I had no idea how to create a database so I "played around" with the program.

I tried a couple of times to create a database and saved them both times. I was able to find both files so I developed this false sense of confidence. I selected the option to use the wizard, chose some sample category, the name of which I don't remember, added 3 categories to a blank database, changed the names of all 3 and proceded to type-in about 300 entries. May I add that I don't know how to type so this took quite some time. Periodically I would click file, save, and this is what I did before I finally closed the file. Of course, fool that I am, I have no idea what, if anything, it was saved AS. I recall that I did not choose a primary key, or whatever it's called.

I am using windows xp and am unable to find a list of last files opened. i have no idea what the file is called. I have tried search using many word possibilities to no avail. I opened the Access list of databases and I find nothing familiar. I even tried opening each one but again, I can't bring up anything familiar. Is there any way to find this file or could it be lost forever?

Sign me "inACCESSable."
 

A:unable to locate access file

go to Start, Find, Files or Folders and in the search field, type in *.mdb, then in the Date tab check the Find All Files modified during the previous ??? days where you specifiy how many days ago it was when you worked on this database.

You should find it then.

Make sure you are looking in all local harddrives, as well as any networked drives you may have.

Receiving this error message at startup:
"mimboot.exe - Unable to locate component

OS: WinXP SP2 Home Ed.

I have searched for the mimeboot.exe file, found it in Windows\Prefetch & MusicMatch. Searched for the missing CoreDll.dll file and only found it in MusicMatch. I don't have a clue as to what application this missing file is suppose to belong to so it can be fixed.

I did have a previous error problem prior to this one (Proxy Error), fixed it and now I get this message at startup. I also used Registery Mechanic two days ago and after doing so is when I got the Proxy Error.

I seem to be unable to connect devices via USB and have my Win7 Pro (x64) locate the correct driver for it.

A couple of weeks ago I connected a wireless mouse. I placed the USB receiver into my laptop, I saw the little animated icon in the system tray looking like it was installing something, but after about 20 seconds a bubble told me that driver installation had failed - a driver could not be located.

This morning I connected a headset (headphones & microphone) via USB and got the same result.

In both cases the devices show up under Other devices with a little exclamation mark.

Also, in both cases I could connect the same devices into another laptop (Win7 Ult. x64) and both the mouse and the headset work as expected, but on my laptop the drivers cannot be located.

In the case of the mouse, I found which driver the other laptop had installed for it, located the same on my laptop (it was installed) and manually assigned this driver to the device, but was then told that the device could not be started.

I've placed my system disk back in the drive and asked it to search the disk for drivers, but that doesn't turn up anything either.

Short of re-installing Windows (which I do not want to do), can anyone suggest what might be going wrong?

I hope the following is enough info. If not, just let me know and I'll get whatever else is needed:
Windows Vista Home, SP2
HP, AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core
Memory, 6GB
System Type, 64-bit
Monitor, Samsung 2033SW
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
Running in Mozilla

So, a couple of weeks ago I was having troubles w/my graphics card and I replaced it with the above-referenced. Everything was fine until today, I was reviewing some pictures and the system shut down. When it rebooted, it (windows) said that I needed to download a new driver for the NVIDIA. I went to their site and downloaded the correct driver, however, I couldn't FIND it to run it. Instead I went to "Device Manager" and downloaded it from there. After reviewing the properties, somehow it downloaded 32 bit pieces instead of 64. I don't know if that is a problem, but wanted to throw it out there.

So then I noticed that my Samsung Monitor was not displayed as the "Display" (instead, it read "Generic PnP Monitor"). I went to their website and downloaded the driver for that too, but I can't FIND it either.

Since I am using Mozilla, all of my downloads go to my "Downloads" folder, but these two items are not there (no matter how many times I search, or re-download).

Off the topic a bit, I think I should get yet another graphics card b/c my computer is a bit grainy. Any suggestions?

Oh yea! I can't even play Spider Solitaire now! Help help help.

Hi,

My wife's laptop keeps coming up with the following error message every restart-

title of message box: "AppleSyncNotifier.exe unable to locate component" and content of message: "This application has failed to start because CoreFoundation.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

When she asked me to look the screen had frozen, so i forced a shutdown, but on re-start the above appeared. I ran an AVG virus scan and it found and archived a virus, FakeAlert.SGG in the virusvault. The laptop appears to be a bit slower than normal according to my wife, so i'm wondering if there's a residual problem related to the error message?

My wife uses ITunes and i have deleted and reinstalled the programme in case it was the problem, but that hasn't sorted matters out!

Any advice on how to remove the startup error message and sort any residual problems gratefully received.

Many thanks.

I tried to load some drivers from disk and from usb but it says no signed drivers were found. I am also unsure what drivers I need.

Any help would be appreciated.

You need the drivers for your mobo sata controllers.
If you have your mobo drivers CD, look for a folder called raid.

Hi all,

Don't know if any of you can help...

I recently downloaded something but the file didn't save to the usual place. Instead, the file has been saved to a place on my PC which I am finding impossible to locate (the downloading was successfully completed after a short while by-the-way)

According to the program I used to download the file it has been saved to...

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

(I'm not sure why the file was saved here!)

When I go to C:\Documents and Settings\ I am unable to find the 'User' folder and so cannot goto (or see) the other folders where this file has been saved. The only folder I can see in Documents and Settings is 'All Users'

If any one of you can help I would be most appriciated.

Cheers,

C h r e d g e.
 

A:Unable to locate downloaded file

I'm guessing the folder is hidden, in explorer tried going to 'tools - folder options - View (tab) - and click show hidden files and folders'

Good Day Friends,

I have an application installed on a Windows 7 machine at office. The application installs VS 2008 Redistributable files during its installations. The installation works fine.

On the launch, the application crashes. On reviewing the Event Viewer, I can see "MFC90U.dll" listed under one of the "Data" tags.

I tried copying all the MS 2008 related files and manifests to the local directory. This also didn't work.

There are other products on the machine which are supposedly using earlier versions on VS Redistributable files. These applications work fine.

Is there any chance that the co-existence of the multiple versions of the VS Redistributable files is causing any issues?

Is there any way of specifying manifests in the local directory for the missing DLLs so that application can locate them?

Please advice. I am stuck on it for 3 days now.

Thanks & Regards!
Pankaj Dwivedi.

A:Application is unable to locate MFC90U.dll and others

Before doing anything else I would reinstall or repair install (if the app supports it)
The application that is the source of the error.
You may want to run the setup or installer file as an admin and temporarily disabling UAC for the duration of the repair/reinstall.

It sounds like the file simply didn't write.

You can also try installing the latest visual C++ library and see if that resolves your problem.

I'll add more information on the problem and what I have tried so far. 
This computer has had the problem of looping on updates for months now. It would get updates but after restart, while it was trying to configure them it would say download failed and revert everything. I spent days on that trying to uninstall updates and reinstall them. I got it to where it had all but 2 updates and couldn't get any further. My father in law didn't want to have to reinstall all of his programs so he opted to put it off for a while to see if I came up with a fix. In the meantime, more updates tried to come in and failed. Also it looks like they installed office 2007. That may have been when this new problem started. They also installed adobe flash the same day.  
 
This is what I have tried, in order.
 
1. Last known good configuration, nothing.
 
2. Malwarebytes
That found several things but nothing that looked too bad and removing them didn't help. 
 
3. Startup Repair from Install disk (said found no problems)
 
4. System from Install Disk
I thought this one was going to work. There were lots of restore points. I picked one just before they installed office. It ran for a while then said the restore point was no good and reverted. No problem, I could just pick another. Nope. When I went back to restore all the previous restore points were just gone. 
 
5. Clean boot
 
6. SFC /Scannow 
Found some errors. Said it couldn't fix them... Read more

I've been put on a scavenger hunt this past week in an attempt to get my laptop to at least get to the login page but have come to dead end after dead end. It started off with an "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" message followed by 4 hexadecimal numbers, one of which being 0xc0000006. I was able to get past this point by popping in my XP Pro cd and running a repair. Upon rebooting my computer I received a error message that had the header "lsass.exe - Unable to Locate Component" with the message "This application has failed to start because" I was able to access my harddrive and replaced the lsass.exe file with a copy off my father's working computer but it still wouldn't read. Finally I did a repair install of XP and got the same lsass.exe error message on top of the regular setup screen. Since the setup seemed to be active (the screen went through a series of slides explaining how great the new XP is!) the 39 minute setup was still going over 90 minutes after it originally started. When the lsass.exe error box is closed, the computer automatically restarts.

Please help, my computer's warranty expired only a few weeks ago so I haven't been able to get any help from Dell support and I'm really running out of options!

I believe a Repair Install may be in order, you are experiencing multiple issues.

Perform a Repair Installation

Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

If you have xp sp2 installed it needs to be incorporated into your xp disk or it will not offer the repair option only the clean install.
