Q: Unknown Infection - F-Secure did not catch - Won't allow IE to open (opens and closes immediately) - Wont allow normal MBAM...

I was able to install MBAM by changing the name and file extension to test.bat - the program would not run. I then was able to get the program to run by changing mbam.exe to test.bat. MBAM found the following: Trojan.DNSChanger, Trojan.FakeAlert, Trojan.Agent

MBAM removed them, MBAM returns clean results. Internet explorer still opens and closes immediately. All my software that requires a license opens and now claims it could not contact the license server or license expired.

Google has brought me to this forum and from what I've read you are the people to help! Anything you can offer will be gratefully received - I've exhausted my small box of tricks and without some help it would be the reinstall for me.The symptoms all arrived at once and are as follows:- Firefox crashes out of any google search. Uninstalled, tried to reinstall, installer fails (Run then disappears, no action)- IE redirects links from google search results into seemingly random sites (potting sheds when searching for MBAM is an example). Also strange IE skin change- AVG update "connection to server failed". Ran AVG "rmagent" (their suggested fix) didn't find anything and still fails to connect to server- Spybot update also fails. SB (manually updated - Tea Timer off) finds no infection. AdAware finds no infection (and works normally)- MBAM closes without trace after scanning for only a second or two- Sound settings vanished- win32kdiag returned an empty reportAttach.txt and ark.txt attached.DDS report below - thanks in advance for any support you can give me -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------DDS (Ver_09-11-24.02) - NTFSx86 Run by Andy at 8:14:02.95 on 25/11/2009Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.44....

Which version of Outlook are you running? 3 more replies Answer Match 90.72% Thought this would be a good place to ask this...if not, feel free to point me in the right direction. I've had this problem ever since the first betas, thinking that it would eventually work or "be fixed"--but even the release candidate and now the final has the same issue. When I install IE9, when I go to open up the browser (32 or 64), it opens for a split second and then immediately closes. Every single time. I've never seen IE9 open on this machine. One of my thoughts on why would be that I have two hard drives in this machine--a 60GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. I manually edited the registry entry for default install location / program files location to the E: drive, or 1TB drive, so I don't mistakenly install programs onto the SSD and clog up its limited space. For 95% of programs this has worked out just fine, including Microsoft's own Security Essentials (even though I'd love to have the option to put it on the SSD, but there's no options on where to install it). Anyone else run into a problem like this? Is there a better solution than reverting that program files change? Now that I've had Windows running for a while I imagine changing that record will cause some...not so nice issues. EDIT: And I just checked--IE9 is indeed installing to Program Files on the E:\ drive. A:IE9 opens for a split second, then immediately closes. For IE crashing, you probably want to try starting it from the command line first to see if it works this way - start > run > iexplore -extoff. If so, you have an add-on causing an issue, and can disable them via autoruns. 3 more replies Answer Match 90.72% Hello FYI, I was referred to post here by MRT.Today I did Windows updates.Before updating, I had Win XP SP2 and IE6 (IE6 used to work fine).After updating, I had IE7 and XP SP3.After going to IE7 and XP SP3:IE will not work.

Some of these files are MS Word files and some are PDF files. In the DB, the user has the option to click on a button to view the document. When the user clicks on "View Document, I use the Application.FollowHyperlink method to open the document file. This works well except in the case of one particular computer where Adobe Acrobat is installed (instead of the usual Adobe Reader). When I run the software on this computer, the Word document open correctly but when I try to FollowHyperlink to a PDF file, the document opens momentarily, then closes almost immediately. The document is in view for less than a second. There is nothing wrong with the PDF document itself. When opened in the normal way on this computer, Acrobat opens it properly with no warnings or dialogues. I am unsure whether the problem has anything to do with Acrobat versus Reader but it is the single difference that I can identify immediately.

Hi there :]
Im new here, so bare with me.

Ill get straight to the point IE7 wont open.
Ive tried to open it using many guides from the internet and none work.
The process is shown though, there are apparently many IE's but they just wont show up.

Its as if somethings blocking it, or it isnt there at all.

Recently I believe I had a trojan on my laptop, which Kasperskys online scanner found, I then deleted the file and Kaspersky isnt finding a trojan anymore.
AVG also isnt finding anything, neither is Spybot or Hijackthis!
So I think the trojan has gone from the system.
This was my idea of why IE wasnt opening, but if theres no trojan, and it still isnt opening I have no idea why.

Im currently on Firefox, which isnt bad, its useable, but everything is on IE and it would be a shame not to have IE working.

I would system restore, but I dont want the risk of getting the trojan back.

Hijackthis most recent log is below:

Hey guys, brand new to the fourm, and I'm well was infected. I got rid of all my trojans and rogue viruses, but the after math, well thats the aggravating part. The taskmgr.exe is being blocked from being used. I can rename it, and it will open, but leaving it as taskmgr.exe I only get a hour glass for a second with no error message of any kind. I'm trying to figure out how to fix this in the registry, before I just rename the taskmgr for good or download an alternative one.

I am having the same problem. I have tired resetting, I ran sfc and no issues were found. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling. Also tried the tweaks from majorgeeks.com. I have tried IE9 via update and IE11 via update and also from downloading. Also I just finished a clean install on a tower and have the exact same issues there. I am desperate here. I need IE to complete MOAC labs. Both machines are running Win7 64bit. Laptop has Home Premium and the new tower is Pro. Both machines have the OS on one partition with registry point program files to a second partition.

MS Word 2000 SR-1 closes immediately on launch. My operating system in Microsoft XP Pro. I've removed the program and reinstalled it, restarting the system after each action. I've updated AVG and run it, then restarted the computer, but no luck. Any ideas?

A:Word closes immediately

yes, here an idea
though, you have remove the application from your computer, you system have kept some files from old installation.
not to worry, this can be fixed by purging all MS Office files from your system.

click Start, Run & type regedit & OK. browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office. right click that folder & choose the delete option.
go to C drive, Programs Files, & delete Microsoft Office from there. (don't worry if you receive an error of some files can not be removed, will just do it after reboot)
if the last step gave u an error, please reboot & delete after reboot (don't open any applications or browsers)
reboot
click Start, Run & type %TEMP%, the click OK. (delete all items within the folder that opens)
reboot
reinstall MS Office 2000
this should fix your issue. please let me know how it goes

This is primarily a informational post for those interested.. I found this post http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r...regedit-msconfig-closes-immediately-upon.html and wanted to reply but it was closed.

I just copied my drive over using Western Digital's Data Lifeguard utility. Upon rebooting (and making sure the new drive was selected in the bios to boot from) I encountered 2 problems..

1: the boot menu (which had not previously been enabled) now showed two entries for "Default system", both which worked, but was annoying to me..
2: msconfig would not work for me to check the startup and boot.ini.

I ran through a lot of steps trying to get msconfig to work again.. copied the file to a different location, rename it as a different filename, check for virus/malware, even copied it from my laptop, and checking the registry entries.. Nothing would let this program run!
As far as antivirus programs, I run Avast! .. I was POSITIVE I had no virus malware, etc. Even still, I ran a boot time virus sweep. NOTHING found. Even ran HijackThis.. again nothing. After MUCH searching on Google and even these forums, I simply resigned myself that I was going to need to do a repair install (which I hate doing). I decided to check one last thing first.. manual edit of the boot.ini.

When I opened it up and compared to my laptop running the same version of the OS (Win XP Pro sp3) I noticed it was missing an entry .. the information under [operating systems] (second entry) was b... Read more

A:MsConfig Closes Immediately After Execution

Welcome to TSG, Cronfofan; I've moved you to the XP forum since that is your operating system.

I see you have a couple of problems, first and foremost is the msconfig issue caused by a trojan. The second is a hijacker called rapidblaster among other things.

I'll try to address both in a combined fashion.

First have HijackThis and a notepad copy of these instructions handy in their own folder on the desktop. Then go to Folder Options > View and make sure "show hidden files" is selected. Folder Options is found through the Control Panel or any Explorer Tools menu.

Then shutdown completely and wait about 20 seconds before restarting. Tap f8 promptly on restart to access the boot menu and select Safe Mode.

1 -- in Safe Mode, click Start, Run and enter Explorer

2 -- navigate to c:\windows\system32 and delete:

WXKFCGREMB.EXE

3 -- navigate to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete:

TFTP1504

4 -- Run HijackThis and check the following boxes and click "fix checked":

I know this has been addressed in previous posts but none of the solutions I found worked for me.

Upon starting my computer, opening regedit isn't possible. I get an error message saying: "Regedit is disabled by administer." To fix this, I run (every time I turn on my netbook) the following statement: REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

This allows me to open Regedit, but it immediately closes again.

I have started working in Sierra Leone and know my computer has many viruses on it. Still, none of my anti-virus software (I use AVG Free 9.0 and PandaSecurity ActiveScan 2.0) has solved this problem.

Below please find my HJT log. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Daniel

I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 on a Dual HDD setup, 120GB SSD/1.5TB Spinning. I have installed Windows on the SSD and I have set the Registry to expect Program Files and Program Files (x86) in the D drive.

So far, so good, except IE will not start. It flashes on the screen and immediately closes. It's getting frustrating. I've tried the Microsoft solution, and even re-registered all the .dll's for IE.

At this point, I have no idea what to do next. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I would really prefer not to set Program Files and (x86) back to C drive, but I might have to if I want IE to run. And yes, I run a different browser primarily, I'd just like to know IE is functioning.

When i open the Internet Explorer, it will open then immediately close. I was able to pinpoint the problem at my home page (www.google.com). I opened IE again, stopped it quickly from opening the home page and then entered another web page. It worked. Then i went back to the home page and it closed again. So whenever i enter the home page the program will shut itself. I also use Firefox as web browser and it doesnt do the same thing. Any help will be appreciated.

Ohh Hi...I've posted a same thread on this issue before but i made a stupid mistake..
I added the word hijackthis to my title..and i cant seem to open the thread up due to the problems in my computer...

i'll basically repeat what i said on my previous thread..

I know that I've heard that other people have had similar problems, and I've read how they have had their problems fixed. Ive tried many different things to get my problem fixed, but nothing seems to work.

I think I may have multiple problems that may or may not be related to each other, but either way I cannot do certain things to fix anything.

The problems that I have noticed are:
1. Home page for internet explorer changes to nuevaq.fm even when I change it back to what I want.
2.a)Hijack This opens, then lasts about 5 seconds, then automatically closes
b) Whenever I type Hijack This in internet explorer, whether on google, or any site, Internet Explorer closes within seconds (making it almost impossible to search for help regarding Hijack This)
3. Regedit/msconfig open for a split second then close again (task manager and antivirus sites do still work)

could any of u tell me if there's another software i can use to get rid of this problem..and if possible guide me through the process...thanks

FYI: i posted this in this section because i could not enter the proper forum cause my browser seems to automatically close when i do so...srry for the inconvenience caused..

Hi,
I am running Windows 2000 on my machine here at work. I had Office 2000 Professional installed and all was well. A few weeks ago I installed a CAD reading program called Volo View and sometime there after all my problems started. All of my office applications (Excel, Outlook, Word, etc.) close only a few seconds after opening any one. I have removed both softwares and tried reinstalling Office. I also removed Volo View out of the registry also and it still shuts down. I found a MS fix to edit the registry by deleting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0 and then reinstalling Office from an administrator profile which didn't help. I have run Spybot, Adaware and CW Shredder, in an attempt to remove anything that may have come about via the internet and none have solved my problem. Below is my Startup Log and HijackThis Log. Thanks for any help that can be relayed...

when removing Office 2000 to correct problems, make sure you run OFF2000: Utility to Completely Remove Remaining Office CD1 Files and Registry Entries and OFF2000: Utility to Completely Remove Remaining Office CD2 Files to clean up any leftovers the uninstall left behind

Here's some MS KB articles that might help with the programs closing problem . . .

OK, this is what's going on...

This particular game doesn't require much out of my machine. I've ran this game 5-6 times over just to see and it still ran smoothly, so I know for fact it has nothing to do with hardware (especially because I can still run much more graphically/processor intensive games). Just getting that out of the way.

I have played this game, unchanged, many-a-time pretty much every day, then one day it simply quits working. No update to the game (it does not update automatically), no change whatsoever. It'll just open and immediately close before any kind of content, color, or image is loaded. The whole process of me attempting to run the game and it closing takes less than a second.

I've tried spamming the game to see if maybe a 1 in 100 shot will randomly open it. This didn't work.

I have removed all my firewalls and antivirus, just for sake of testing purposes. This didn't work. Yes, I rebooted.

I have absolutely completely uninstalled the game, then reinstalled it. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

I have tried running as Administrator, or even just disabling the UAC altogether. Rebooted, and it didn't work.

It's an online game. Windows Firewall is disabled, all my ports are open, nothing is justifying what's going on here.

The two previous Firewalls/Antivirus I had were McAfee and Avast.

I am on Windows 7.

My computer had/has a bug that will sleep, but not die. EasySearch is the bug and it is really pesty. My anti-spyware provider is close to finding an effective pesticide. I have overcome most problems, but I also have downloaded 5 browsers, IE, Firefox, Opera, Avant & NetCaptor to compare them. Now something different has occurred. IE, Firefox and Opera will open certain websites I like to visit, e.g. consumerworld.org and then promptly close the window. Avant and NetCaptor do not do this. I'm leaning toward Firefox as my preferred browser.

Question 1. Can you give me some advice as to how to make IE, Opera and Firefox keep these auto-closing windows open?

This is my first post. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

I've had zero luck with the Poser support people and have had to take this issue into my own hand. This app *will* work under safe mode but does when vista is booted up normaly. What are the key differences between safe mode and normal mode in vista? I need to start there if i want to begin troubleshooting this thing. I absolutely know its a display driver conflict between Catalyst 8.8 and my Asus software package that came with the video card. Any suggestions?

Safe mode loads basic drivers, and prevents most Anti virus and other prevention software from running fully.

So, you either have a conflict with your av / am software or else with a driver.

Hi puertorico, welcome to BC!A little clarification, when you say wont let me press[del] to enter start up mode do you mean that you can't enter the system BIOS utility (the thing that comes up before Windows) or that you can't get to the boot menu (where things like "Safe Mode" and "Last Known Good Configuration" are shown) by pressing F8 before Windows loads?If you have your Windows XP installation CD, then that's all we'll really need to fix this.

Hi guys,

Have just found and read a closed as solved post about Microsoft Office 2000 Outlook closing immediately on opening. Of course, now I have gone through the registration process I cannot find the original post.

So, within the last two days, for no apparent or obvious reasons, Outlook 2000 refuses to stay open. When I try to open it, it opens and immediately closes; no error messages, no crash reports to Microsoft. The only thing I notice is in the task bar at the bottom of the screen, when it opens it shows the outlook logo followed by '-Microsoft Outlook' instead of 'Microsoft Outlook'.

I have removed the program and reinstalled it a trillion times (only a slight exaggeration). This made no difference.
I have deleted (having copied it to a different location) the .pst file. This caused the program to open and ask various questions about setting up new folders. I did what it asked and the program promptly closed having created various personal telephone folders.
I have put the .pst file back. Now, for the pico second that the screen is open, I can see that there are no e-mails in any of the folders, obvious I guess, but confusing to an idiot like me.
Any help greatly appreciated.
P.S. Info Utility says I don't have an anti-virus but I am running a full Norton 360 program which is always on and I have scanned the whole system a couple of times since this problem began.

Any advice is appreciated. Is there a way to "reset" the People app from outside the app, for example?

I've run Spy-Bot, AdAware, Norton 2004. Some forum questions are similar, but items they were asked to get fixed in their HijackThis logs are not listed in my logs.
(Someone in my house did recently click on an IM Message with a fake message, which then started propagating malicious fake away messages for my family member. I'm not sure if the Norton virus scan took complete care of the IM problem or not.)(I also installed Service Pack 2 a couple of weeks ago for my XP computer.)

Hi everyone, New to the forum so thanks for the help ahead of time. Upon opening internet explorer it immediately closes and displays nothing. Also Internet options in control panel will not open at all. The windows firewall also tells me "For your security, some settings are controlled by group policy." This computer is not on a network and is a home computer. I was able to work around it by doing some registry work in which I removed the value on the firewall key. So that enabled me to turn the firewall back on. The service for windows firewall is now started with no errors and is set to automatic.

The Internet explorer problem is more important to me at the moment. I know the internet connection is active because firefox works perfectly. I scanned the computer with AVG and it found so many viruses and trojans it was rediculous. I also scanned the computer with webroot spysweeper and it found nothing but when I open IE it stops all sorts of things like drivecleaner for example.

I have a XP Home machine that whenever I startup IE 7.0, it closes right away (within a few seconds). It looks like it will start
loading the page, then just closes. Also in my Control Panel, there is a icon for Internet Options (without the "Internet Options" text
lable), but I cannot click or do anything with it. I also can not right click on the IE icon and get to the properties. I have run Spybot
to no avail. I tried re-installing IE 7.0 (downloaded from another machine). It went through the whole install and said it installed
haven't installed them yet and that is where I sit. IE still does the same thing currently. I did notice in the hosts file there is a entry
of "216.203.102.48 SC00102". I'm not sure what that is, maybe dealing with my wireless connection? Before I reinstalled IE, I took
it out, restarted and it didn't make a difference. One thing (before I re-installed IE) I did was to put "c:\windows\ie7\intcpl.cpl" into
"c:\windows\system32\intcpl.cpl" and that got my Internet Options back (their gone again now), but it didn't fix the closing out issue.
Some things I have yet to try that I plan on doing after researching on the web:

My guess would be that your system is infected...and I'm no expert.I suggest that you post at BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ If it turns out that you are not infected...that would be the time to pursue your system issues, IMO.Louis

i know i had the blaster virus (or that's what Dell tells me anyway...). So, I downloaded the patch for it and installed it, and then tried to run Norton Antivirus full system scan and about 3 seconds after it opens, it disappears. Same thing if I try to run Live Update.
I was able to do a full system scan in safe mode, and the system came up clean, but I still can't run the Live Update in regular mode. HELP!

I'm on XP, using Norton Antivirus Professional Edition 2004.

A:norton antivirus closes immediately after opening

Do the cntrl, alt, delete command to open the task manager then go to aplications and see if its still runing. If it's not there, then check the processes tab to see if its runing. If its not runing at all then maybe you should uninstall and reinstall then after do the patch. If it happens again then its gonna be a registry that some virus or malicious code has added or modified. Im not an expert but tricks like that are always pulled by means of altering the registry.

PS...MAKE SURE TO RESTART AFTER UNINSTALLING AND BETWEENING INSTALLING THE PROGRAM AGAIN AND PATCH.

Okay, for some reason when I try to start Firefox, I get the message:

"firefox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

behind it is the Mozilla Crash Reporter:

"Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts."

There is an option to restart firefox, but the same messages come up. I believe it might have had something to do with a virus I had, but Malwarebytes removed several trojans (Vundo I believe was one of them) and installed IE8. So far I've

- restarted the computer
- completely uninstalled and reinstalled firefox
- ran ccleaner & combofix
- ran malwarebytes
- manually uninstalled firefox, renamed the user profile folder in %APPDATA%

i cannot restore to an earlier date because of the virus scans and deleting virus files that were housed within restore data. Has anyone else encountered this issue or know a possible solution?
