Every time I turn on my computer, I get a cmd window titled C:\Windows\System32\MSLTST~1.EXE.
There's also another window that pops up that says: "C:\Windows\System32\MSLTST~1.EXE. The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.

I've read other topics and I have to post this here with a Hijack Logfile but when I follow the "preparation guide" und I have to "Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log" it happens that the computer doesn't create a dds.scr file. Instead, it creates a dds.txt

How can I change the extension file in order to achieve an .scr file? I need this information to post a log because I absolutely want to fix my problem with the "MSLTST" file.

Important Do Not Post HJT/DDS Logs In This Forum

Just copy/paste the DDS text to the message body when submitting the log in the proper forum, here:

Hello polets,

I take it that you are unable to create the DDS logs? If that is the case, do this instead:

Download RSIT by random/random and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You will need to run this tool while connected to the Internet so it can download HijackThis if it is not located on your system. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding Rist attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
  • If using Windows Vista, be sure to Run As Administrator.
  • Click Continue after reading the disclaimer screen.
  • Leave the drop down box set to default: "List/folders created or modified in the last 1 month (30 days).
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Please start a new topic and post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here.
  • Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.
If RSIT did not work, then reply back here.
