I began noticing that certain functions of the computer were not working correctly. I am Running XP Home Service Pack 3

-Couldn't access clock from taskbar
-Couldn't access properties when right-clicking on My Computer
-Games were not running correctly

-System Restore was disabled by group policies even though I am running XP Home (was able to fix this by deleting System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore]
Value Name: DisableConfig, DisableSR)

-Start>Run>regedit.exe would create a pop up that said "Are you sure you want to add the information in to the registry?", If I select Yes, it gives me the error "Cannot Import: Error opening the file. There may be a disk or file system error. (I can access the registry through the Registry Cleaner if I right click on one of the registry keys it finds and select "Go to Error")

I figured I had either a virus or a bad malware infection, but Norton wasn't picking up anything. I downloaded Avast and ran a bootscan and it found a few viruses. Win32/cryptor and Win32/Heur after those were cleaned I used Eusing Free Registry cleaner to clean up the registry, but the problems were still happening. I downloaded AVG to search the computer again, it found a few tracking cookies but nothing else. I downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware after updating, it found 0 problems. No program seems to find anything else but the issues are still not resolved. It was suggested that I run a HijackThis and post the log file into this forum.

I would really appreciate any help you can give me.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit scanner. Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:
