:thumbsup: Hey guys, thanks heaps for the info about this Trojan/virus I used the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as u suggested in the removal section... As I had tried several options given to me by my PC guy/Shop and nothing worked!! Was told that I would have to do a total reinstall of my system to be rid of it.. at a great cost!!!!
Now cn you suggest a good spyware program?? I have bought some b4 but my pc slowed right down. I used Nortons when I bought this PC, but then tried OneCare which wiped Nortons off.
I have been useing Defender as I thought this would protect me, but now no this doesnt.
I have been told PC Tools Spyware Doctor is good?? thoughts please??
Or does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware cover me in this erea?? I see that it can be purchased, so is this wats needed??

Cheers.

You can try this free utility to re-register the Windows Installer: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix#Standard_version

I merged the first topic you started, Xp 2008, with the last topic you started, Xp 2008.
Starting 2 topics, about the same problem, is called double posting, and is not allowed on this board.
Please keep all of your replies in this one topic.
The members helping you, will be looking for your responses to their questions, in the topic they replied to.
Posting it elsewhere, will cause a delay in the help you receive, and neither one of us, wants that. smile.gif
When you start several topics, for the same problem, it becomes very confusing to follow, for all of those involved.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

:thumbsup: I have been infected with this trojan horse 2x in the past few days. I think there is a new source of infection: the pc cleaner ad or another ad on cyberdefender 2.0 free version. Cyberdefender itself works just fine. Just do not click on the ads in the upper right hand corner. Instead of getting a warning banner of infection and an icon in the lower right hand corner, you will get two antivirus xp 2008 icons in your start up menu--one to install and one to run. And be sure to run the full malbytes-ware scan. The quick scan caught 10 but missed 8 infections. I am running the free ware version so often that the company will demand that I purchase it--and I can't afford that, I'm on permanent disability.

I just introduced myself on another thread. I am very grateful for this site and hope to consult it often. Keep up the good work! Fuzzywuzzy6

To Boopme, yep sorry bout that. I understand.
I have had a look at the Dialafix link, tell me before i run this...... there seems to be quite a bit involved, I have read thru the editorial. Can i just run the section that fixes the Windows installer?? or is it best to run the full list of fixes??? Any and all help is greatly recieved

Cheers Guyz.

:thumbsup: Hi again, have just tried running the dial-a-fix, the installerfix. This did not run and came up with the error:
Error: 2147220991 unable to register c\windows\system32\msi.dll

So is there something im not seeing or doing? or do I need a full reinstall of my system?

Cheers guyz.
