I was fixing a computer for a friend. It had spyware/viruses that pop up fake antirus programs and also changed registry keys for task manager and menu items like tools/folder options to 1 on the Dword so that they would not open, show up, or were greyed out. I couldnt even open the regedit file in safemode! I found your UnHookExec.inf file and right clicked and installed, and got access to the registry keys. I found instructions through google on setting various registry keys to 0 to turn on features that I needed such as show hidden files and folders and file extensions so that I could rename the malwarebytes.exe file to fool.scr. However, the first time I didnt get that I needed to rename each exe and filename as I installed it, including the folder, so it didnt work.
I then tried the combofix and it said it found 6 rootkits and removed them with a message on reboot that a file didnt exist and kept running over each time.
I finally ended it and that is when I was left with a slow opening start/my computer. Please tell me how to make My Computer open faster than 2 minutes (it used to pop open right away after selecting before I ran the combofix that found
Please tell me if I need to run Windows XP repair or if there is another solution.
(I have since gotten malwarebytes to run and removed 141 backdoors, malware, spyware and various outher nasties, and found 6 more so far on the full scan, but still cant open my computer fast enough).
