Unable to locate virus

Q: Unable to locate virus

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". Ok I thought, so I restarted the computer and ran AVG again and let it run while doing my homework. Again, it crashed!

Is there something wrong with my virus scan and what else can I do? I will post a HJT log asap.

Preferred Solution: Unable to locate virus

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.)

Good day!

I need some help here. I'm suspecting there might be a virus residing in my pc due to:

1. Windows explorer responds very slow. It takes about a minute to load.
2. Ran eset online scanner and it found/deleted pc-off.bat.
3. MalwareBytes pops up with an alert "successfully blocked access to potentially malicious websites"
then it gives an IP address.(Both incoming and outgoing)
4. CLI.EXE(.NET Framework) error on startup.
5. Can't install AVG.
Noticed this just this day, ran malwarebytes, superantispyware, eset online scanner.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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 wasn't sure where to post this, but I tried to run one of my games today, and I got a pop-up saying that:

Frozen Throne was unable to locate your CD-ROM drive.
Please make sure your Frozen Throne disc is in your CD-ROM drive, then click on 'Retry'.

I have never gotten this error before, so I right clicked on My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Then under DVD/CD ROM drives is has:

ASUS CD-S480/A5
HP DVD Writer 640c

Next to these names there is an icon which has an exclamation point " ! ".

I right clicked on ASUS CD-S480/A5 , then properties and the device status says:

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

I am not sure what this exactly means, but I cannot load any of my games.
Thanks.

My wife uses a Dell Inspiron 1100, running Windows XP. I had installed AVG anti-virus, but somehow it was deleted. When I tried to re-install it I could not. I cannot install or remove any programs. An error box appears upon starting computer which states McciTray app.exe - Unable to locate component. It stated this application failed because urlmon.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem. How can I locate the application. What I would really like to is remove all programs and start from scratch using re-installation CD. What do you recommend. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, Help required please. I have an Acer 8930g running Windows Vista Home Premium.
Which when I switch it on and after logging in I get a message "SLUI.exe - Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because urlmon.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
The machine then displays "Preparing your Desktop".
Next the computer displays "Microsoft Windows. Windows Activation Client has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".
Upon clicking "Close Program" the computer goes back to the loin prompt.

If I try "Safe Mode" after logging in and seeing "Preparing your Desktop" the computer displays "Help and Support was not able to start" followed by a message at the bottom of the screen "i Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator"
When I look for "Restore Points" there is only one for today. I presume this is because the computer does not recognise my login.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

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 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.

As you have somehow removed the files for this program just reinstall it. If you want it then keep it but otherwise uninstall it again (using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel). This should solve the problem.

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

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.

I click OK to acknowledge this message, only to have it reappear. After several "OK clicks", however, the program usually opens and functions properly.

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 have tried safe mode, repair console, debugging mode, setup, and even tried copying the file from the system disk to the system32 file.

A few days ago when I tried to shut down I got a message that said something about unable to locate component "msoxlgbdru.dll and it would not shut down. I was falling alseep, so I just pushed the button to turn it off, which I have never done before. The next day when I tried to turn it on a screen came up that said "We are sorry for the inconvenience, windows did not start successfully" and then it said to start in safe mode and restore to last known good configuration. I selected safe mode, and a screen came up with a box that says "This application has failed to start because msoxlgbdru.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. It says winlogon.exe at the top. Then it just sits there and never starts in safe mode.

What can I do?

Also, I know how to do regular maintenance, disc defragmentation and virus and spyware scans, but I don't understand all of the scary lingo so if you have any advice, please talk to me like I am five LOL.

I *really* appreciate any advice! Thanks!

A:Winlogon.exe unable to locate component- help please?

I should add that I also just tried starting in safe mode using the F8 key, and when I choose "Last Good Configuration" I get the message about the msox thing again and it says reinstalling it may fix the problem.

I have an external hard drive holding 465 GB and Have used up 100 GB on it mostly with pictures. Precious Precious Pictures. When I try to plug it in one time weird things happen. I can read the hard drive and it says 100Gb is used up but I can only see the first files and there's nothing inside them! Sometimes there are somethings inside sometimes nothing and I can't paste or cut anything into it. When I try to make a new folder or anything It says unable to locate <%3 NULL:OpText>. HEEEELP MEEEE all my precious pictures are in there and I'm a 12 year old who hasn't taken precautions to backup the files. I tried googling it but all I got was use a different pc, ubuntu, Update usb ports and it has the click of death and nothing can be done about it (which I doubt because Some files just pop up at random whenever I plug it in at various times. . I think the files are still in there since it still shows 100 Gb in use but they don't show most of the time. Do I need to have a new usb connector? sometimes the light that shows it's connected switches off. Enough details? HEEEEELP!

A:Unable to locate <%3 NULL:OpText> ?

Gday mate

Have you at any point of the HDD's life just pulled out the USB without going to the menu to safety remove the hardware,
I did the same this where i lost all files on my memory stick of which had my school work ect on it "not happy"

Have you run Norton ghost to see if it can find the corrupt files and recover them?

Once i did this i found that most files i could get back but some were corrupt and couldnt be recovered

Try to defrag the disk aswell

Try norton ghost and post back what happens
