Ok, last night I downloaded some registery cleaners, tryin to speed up my pc. One was by Ubiblue or something and the other was free registery cleaner i think. Anyways one said there was over 1100 errors and it would fix 25 for free then i would have to purchase it. I done the free one and then removed both programs. Now when I try to go to any website that requires me to login, ( facebook, twitter,msn,yahoo,ect. ) I get redirected to search.aol.com ( yes I use aol ) This is very annoying to say the least. I can view websites as long as I dont try to login. For example when I try to login to facebook i get this link.... hxxp://aolsearcht3.search.aol.com/aol/afe?query=https%3A%2F%2Flogin.facebook.com%2Flogin.php%3Flogin_attempt%3D1&s_it=DNSERROR

The web address you entered could not be found [more information]

You were trying to go to hxxps://login.facebook.com/login.php?login_attempt=1

The error could be the result of a variety of things, from typing errors in the web address to DNS issues with the requested web address. Check the web address for typing errors or check your internet connection to ensure other web addresses are accessible.

Somebody please help me out I cant afford to take the computer to somebody to fix it nor do I have the money to download any programs..I'm gonna have to do this manually

1fan,

The simplest thing to try would be a system restore. Go to Start, Accessories, System Tools, finally System Restore. When the restore window open pick restore to an earlier time then pick a time before you used the registry tools and it may take care of your problem. I have some work to do I'll check back in 15 or so minutes.

1fan,

Sorry it didn't work. System restore is as far as I can help you. Your now into the Recovery or Reinstall which is beyond my experience to help you. You'll have to wait for one with more years on a computer than I have to help as I have only read what to do and would want someone to walk me through it the first time I do either.

One of the problems with using any bona fide "registry cleaner" is that users have no clue as to what changes are made or whether those changes should be made.

Read first paragraph at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Registry_cleaner.

Should I Use A Registry Cleaner - http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=28099

One of the problems of downloading files nilly-willy and installing same on your system...is that you have no idea what you are getting, since malware is just a fact of Internet life these days.

System manufacturer and model? Do you have the recovery/restore disks accompanying the system?

If custom-built system (not a Dell, eMachines, Gateway, HP, etc.), then do you have a MS Genuine XP CD?

If you can boot into XP...Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter. Reboot the system, the chkdsk /r will try to execute.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/282441/cant-login-to-any-websites/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
