This is an extremely annoying problem....I cannot install NERo7 because it says it cannot make files in my temp folder, and now i cannot use f-bot from the lovely people at f-secure.com because it says there is a problem with this file:
C:\DOCUME~1\MUM&DA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\95ee_appcompat.txt

I tried debugging, but that didn't help. And it is not because of access privileges, as pointed out in the thread here

I need f-bot to work to remove IRCbot from my computer, which i detected after routinely browsing through the processes in my task manager, after Comodo firewall detected Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and msn messenger acting funny...

Please help, i have 2 assignments due which i have to finish soon so i can go and see the Cure worry free!

Any help will be appreciated :thumbsup:

You can try these things.

First the easy one. To make sure your temp folder really no longer has that file download and run CCleaner:

If this doen't do it try running the Nero Cleantool for your major version of Nero:
http://www.nero.com/nero7/enu/Clean_Tools.html

There's more than one way to skin a cat ! You might try this one:
http://www.spywaredb.com/remove-spybot-irc-bot/

Or, try Googling "IRCbot removal" without the quotes. Keep in mind that this malware may have damaged the OS and removing it might not restore complete functionality.
