So I had a horrible rootkit problem which was resolved by m0le at this thread:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/318959/a-lot-of-problems-hjt-log-included/


Please post a topic in the Vista forum. This is a clean computer which has a damaged operating system.

Please explain that I have referred you there as your PC is clean but you are still having problems.

I will keep the topic here open for five days, feel free to PM me after that time. :huh:



Long story short my computer takes way too long to startup, maybe 10 minutes. It used to be like 1-2 minutes before that.

Do you have Vista DVD?

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista/7), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista/7).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista/7, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista/7 case).

No I do not have a Vista DVD with me.

Anyways, I ran the scan but here's what it says in the Verifying process: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation."

Free space - 15 GB out of 475 (lots of music in my computer).
RAM: 4.00 GB
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz 2.00GHz

Please, re-read my instructions regarding running "sfc".
You must run it as Administrator:

Go "Start Search" , type in:
sfc /scannow
Hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter.

It checks, if your system files are OK.
I suspect, they're seriously messed up.
Do you have, or can you borrow Vista DVD?

I'm not very familiar with running Vista repair from USB drive, so I'm not sure, if I can help you much here, but in any case, this the procedure I'm thinking about: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-re...tall-vista.html

Can you go to start then run and type in cmd, then a big black box will appear. In that black box type in sfc /scannow and hit enter.

If it complains that you need to be an admin to run the command then do this:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator then do the above.
