ComboFix Gives Error Messages And Won't Run

Q: ComboFix Gives Error Messages And Won't Run

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:

Needless to say this nailed down the problem but I decided to run ComboFix once again just for the Heck of it and guess what? It ran flawlessly and did not detect any additional malware. I have used ComboFix on numerous occasions without any problem whatsoever, so the moral of this story is that if it doesn't work then try some other tool. It is still a great program but this shows that it can be suppressed by at least one other piece of nasty malware lurking around out there.

I hope this is of some help to someone else who may have a similar problem with ComboFix...

Preferred Solution: ComboFix Gives Error Messages And Won't Run

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I was trying to install an HP Printer. It would not install. I called HP and an HP Tech accessed my computer remotely. He pulled up a bunch of error and stopped working messages. He said my computer was about to crash. He wanted a ton of money to fix it. I have no money, so here I am. I have attached a summary of my computer. I am really computer stupid so any help I can get will be truly appreciated.

I don't know where to begin. Let's start be deleting all old versions of Java in your control panel and updating at: java.com: Java + You
Also, stop using ToolWiz and Optimizer Pro These Registry Cleaners cause the kind of problems you're experiencing.

I am using Windows ME in a new Dell Dimension 4100 series, Pentium 3, 1.1 gig, MSN Office 2000 Professional.

I am having trouble saving a word document that was e-mailed to me. I did a "save as" into "my documents." Then I changed something in the document, and I saved it. Upon closing the document I was asked if wanted to save changes and I said yes.(this confused me as I don't normally get this when I do the normal 'save' under the 'file tab')
Later when I went to open this document, I got an error message, "Locked for editing by another user, click notify to open as a read only copy". When I clicked on notify, I got another error message,"Winword has caused an error in winword.exe. Winword will now close.Try restarting your computer."

When I tried to delete this document, I got the message "Cannot delete file. Access is denied. Source file may be in use."

I experimented and again saved into my documents, again made a change, hit save and closed the doc. When I got the message asking me if I wanted to save the changes, I said no. This procedure enabled me to reopen the document.

I don't understand what is happening and why the key seems to be how I answer the question, do you want to save the changes?

Can someone help?

A:Word doc-error messages: locked, winword error, source file

SOUNDS LIKE (tho I'm not sure), that Word didn't exit properly at least that one time. Next time it happens, and you believe Word to be closed, hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and see if "winword" is still in the task list. If so, click on it and hit End Task. Then delete your file.

If your programs aren't "really" closing down, you may just need to clean up your hard drive. Follow the instructions at:

A:safe mode and startup error and error messages

Have you tried going into set-up and resetting all controls to "default setting"?

You're computer is most likely going into default mode because there is something else wrong with it.

You most likely haven't ruined it........jus need to take this one step at a time

What were the first error messages you were getting?

What happened the first time your computer started in safe mode all by itself?

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?

A:Combofix error

ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computerYou shouldn't be running ComboFix without supervision by staff here at BC.

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.

I was advised to run ComboFix as a possible solution to the problem that I'm having accessing some files (Access is Denied) and activating command lines such as chkdsk, where I am told that I do not have sufficient privileges.

I am the administrator on a private pc.

Unfortunately I did not read the instructions regarding preparation so I do not have a helper. The DDS does not download, but I have attached the log report.

Can anyone pls advise what I should do? There is no change in the problem of file access and privilege level.

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.

two messages come up when i log onto my user.

how do i fix the problem??

A:error messages

Thats causes by adware.

Please do the following:

In IE go to Tools -> Internet Options -> and delete Files and Cookies.

To check for and remove any Spyware or Adware that may be installed on your machine download, update, run, and fix ALL problems found by either of the above mentioned programs. You may need to reboot and have the scan run at startup. Run it again to make sure all components have been removed.

Ad-aware and Spybot:

To check for a virus please visit one of the following sites for a free online virus scan. Even if you a virus scanner installed, this one gives you a second opinion, and it will be up-to-date which yours might not be.


Trend Micro:
If you have Kazaa, it has to go. Use Kazaa Begone to remove it and replace with Kazaa Lite. Kazaa is full of Spyware, Kazaa Lite is not. Both of these spread viruses.

Kazaa Begone:

Kazaa Lite:
Then post a Hijack This Log to have someone analysis it for further cleaning/recommendations.

I keep getting 2 constant error messages about 2 minutes after startup. They started after I defragged my computer.

One is:
textdirector.exe has stopped working

and the other is:directordirector.exe has stopped working.

I have got some other ones but at the moment these are the only two that have popped up. I can click "close program" but they just pop up again in 5~ seconds. I run Vista 32 bit

Can you find 'em in your task manager? I would suggest ending them when the are popped up, but I have no idea what they are or what they do. But since I can't find any information on them existing at all, I doubt they are very important.

looks like I have a couple of problems. I believe they are tied to Internet Explorer.
I Went to scan with Norton (everything is current) it stopped scanning and gave me this message: Unable to scan your computer for infections because of critical error occured during scan.

Then when I went on to play in Pogo Texas Holdem. I was in the game playing a hand and then a window popped up and said: explorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows.

Also I cannot run Disk clean. I get booted to desk top. When I run Spybot I get this message: Error during check RSE 721 (privilegieste anwersing) I have no idea what that means.

If I have to reinstall a new Internet Explorer because this one has a problem, I am going to need help doing it. I understand it is not an easy task. or have I heard wrong.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Peggy

Hi and welcome

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

It may be due to a corrupted autoexec.nt file.

Try these options and see if it fixes the problem:

Go into the Windows folder, there is another folder in there called "Repair" which has a copy of the autoexec.nt file, just copy it over the old one in the System32 folder.


Put in your windows CD
From the command line type:
expand D:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

Trying to download a small program file from this site: http://www.auctionsubmit.com/support.htm#download

I have had 2 separate copies of this software until yesterday. I use them to post auctions to eBay and since eBay has changed categories AGAIN... I was not able to update them this time. The software will not post auctions unless these are current so after NUMEROUS attempts I deleted the programs and would like to download new copy with updated categories already in place. I have downloaded from both site 1 and site 2 ( 2 times each) both to a "downloads" folder on my desktop and to the WUTemp folder on my C: drive. When I attempt to unzip the downloaded file I get the following error:
"file is not a valid winn32 application". I am at a loss as to what may be causing this???
I have noted a change in system performance lately but am unsure if it has anything to do with why I am getting this error. I have timed how long it takes to open a program from the shortcuts/desktop and even the "notepad" function. They can take up to 15 seconds to open. System is as follows:

Pentium-4 2.53 GHZ 533 BUS
M-Board P4-S5/DX+
Memory DDR 1024MB
Hard Drive 80GB UDMA-100 7200 RPM

While not the fanciest/fastest system out there... it should open programs quickly and did until a few weeks ago! Whatever is causing this is getting worse. Available memory is 771,804KB. I have almost nothing on the system. I do have Norton Internet and virus software but disabl... Read more

Over the past few weeks I keep getting a message that "Internet Explorer has contacted the site (or address) but cannot access." When I check to see what the message is it's an http: 403 or 40??? type number. Oddly it's happening on sites that I have accessed before, and at times I'm going through an e-proxy from my University to access stuff like Journal Articles, again I haven't encountered the problem. This is happening A LOT - the other day there I had like 5 or 6 sites blocked in succession!

Anyone know what's causing this and if so how do I stop it from occurring in the future.

Hi.. I have been getting these error messages when I boot up
I was wonderingi if you could assist me in removing these from my machine.

Windows cannot open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online and look it up or you can manually select from a list.... something like that.

There is the same message with a different number, it's TFTP432.
I hope to hear from you soon.

Sounds like spyware files.

Download Spybot S&D, Lavasoft Ad-Aware and CWShredder. These programs will remove any spyware that was added to your machine. Make sure that you update the programs before scanning (They all have an update button in the program.)

Reboot and then download HighJackThis. Scan for errors and SAVE the log. (Do not fix anything yet.) When you save it the log will appear in another window. Copy and paste the log here so we can weed out the rest of the nasties.
