I apologize but I do not understand what post to the current topic being discussed means. I hope I am in the right place.

I downloaded notepad as directed by Email from FixNFind. I was able to download into a folder c:\windows\notepad.exe but I was unable to download to a folder c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe.

This message came up:

The NTVDM CPU has encountered qan illegal instruction CS:0dfaIP:012eOP:c7 12 28 dc c3.

Thank you. I have not been able to find a place anywhere on how to use this site. I would like to do things correctly, it's that I don't know how. I have searched and searched.

Again, thank you!

Ok lets start over. When I say reply to this post, it means come back to this topic that you are reading now and press the add reply button when replying to anything I ask you to do. Do NOT make a new topic as it gets very confusing. We will ignore the previous topics you have made and start fresh here. Ok?

Try extracting notepad.exe into c:\windows\system32 as well. We want notepad to be in both c:\windows and c:\windows\system32. Then post a new log.

I think I did as requested. I made a folder windows\system32\notepad.exe and copied folder windows\notepad.exe into it. The same message as before came up about not finding system32.

You want to download the zipped notepad file. Uncompress it to c:\notepad.

And then copy the notepad.exe that is in c:\notepad into both the c:\windows\system and the c:\windows\system32 diurectory.

The post a new log as a reply to this message

I downloaded the notepad file and uncompressed it to c:\notepad.
I do not know how to copy it to c:\windows\system or to c:\window\system 32 directory.

Is there a place that explains it for me in simple terms without all the other stuff that doesn't apply?

I get into files and folders section of my computer and have no idea what it is all those initials, numbers, etc. mean. I am sure I am in way over my head, but I do sincerely want to learn how to fix it.

Thank you!

Click on start, then run, and type cmd and press enter.

You will now be at a dos prompt.

Type:

copy c:\notepad\notepad.exe c:\windows\notepad.exe
then press enter.

Now type :
copy c:\notepad\notepad.exe c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe
then press enter

Then you should be good. Then post a new hijackthis log

You are currently using hijackthis from a temp directory. This can cause problems. Please create a directory on your c: drive called c:\hijackthis and download and unzip hijackthis into that directory. Run the program from that directory from now on.

For a tutorial on how to use HijackThis please see the following link:

Using HijackThis to Remove Spyware, Browser Hijackers, and Dialers

I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button

Looks good..great job!

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    • Click once on the Security tab
    • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    • Click once on the Custom Level button.
      • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
      • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
      • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
      • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
      • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
      • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
      • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
      • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

    See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

    Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Spybot - Search and Destroy - Install and download Spybot - Search and Destroy with its TeaTimer option. This will provide realtime spyware & hijacker protection on your computer alongside your virus protection. You should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Glad I was able to help.
