I was able to use one of my renamed Regedit files:
So you renamed regedit.exe ?
As what was it renamed? still .exe extension or .com extension?? Anyway, let me know.
This is the cause:
Note the ".." reference in the filepath.
Don't bother to search for the .. folder as it doesn't exist. In this case, the jjmviih.nkt file is present in the C:\Windows folder.
You will need to use HijackThis delete on reboot option to delete it, since manually deleting will recreate the file immediately again.
So, * Open hijackthis, click 'config' (bottom right)
Choose the tab 'misc Tools' on top.
Choose 'delete a file on reboot'
In the field, copy and paste next:C:\WINDOWS\jjmviih.nkt
Hijackthis will tell you that this file will be deleted on next reboot and if you want to reboot now. Click Yes/ok
Your system should reboot now.
verify the C:\WINDOWS\jjmviih.nkt is gone after reboot.
Then, Open notepad
and copy and paste next present in
the quotebox below in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)
Save this as fix.reg
Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this:
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.
Let me know if that fixed your problem
