I had Windows Police Pro appear on my computer. I think Ad-Ware removed some of the Windows Police Pro files, but the task manager is still grayed out and I can't run any exe files. I downloaded the dds and rootrepeal programs but a command screen flashes with C:\Windows\system32\desote flashes on the screen and the programs will not run. Thanks for any help!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. The bullet the immediate notification bubble. Then press submit.


Lets take a look with Malwarebytes

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here:
Malwarebytes
Please rename the file BEFORE downloading to zztoy.exe instead of mbam-setup.exe

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Double Click zztoy.exe to install the application.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.


If Malwarebytes won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

It will not let me open in safe mode. I come to the prompt with safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with Command prompt, but when I select safe mode, it acts like it is going to open in safe mode, but then comes back to the black screen and safe mode prompt. I have cycled through this several times trying all the safe mode options but can't get it to open in safe mode. Thanks!

The computer will not run in safe mode. When I try to run in safe mode by selecting the safe mode option, it goes back to the main safe mode screen.

The computer is running good. Thanks so much for all your help! I tried to open in safe mode to see if that was fixed and it still will not let me open in safe mode. Is that anything I should be worried about? Thanks!

Ok, lets try to get Safe Mode to work:

Go to Start, then Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter. After onscreen window pops up, type Y in response and hit Enter. Reboot the system, the chkdsk /r command will run, then the system will reboot into XP after command has completed.

Then once the machine has rebooted into normal mode, try to boot into Safe Mode.
