Posted 05 January 2011 - 01:59 AM

I told a friend about this forum. He ran malwarebytes on his computer and had 78 infections. Malwarebytes removed them, then he installed Service Pack 1. Then deleted McAfee (it had expired), then he ran combofix. It didn't fix anything, it just made a log file. But now, when he tries to open just about anything, including a restore point, he gets an error that says "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion". I can open the Task Manager and My Computer, but that seems to be about all. How to fix?

At least I was able to get his log file using a jump drive! He did this because a program called "Bearshare" seemed to be taking over his computer, and now I see at least 4 references to it in the log file.

I can open My Computer, and I see 2 files - $$DeleteMe.wmp.dll.01c82bcaf27e290.000 (10.1MB) and $$DeleteMe.wmploc.DLL.01c82bcaaf2a43f0.001 (7.77MG). The date on them is 9/3/2007. Would these have anything to do with the problem?

No, that one is my computer, this one is for a friend. But now he says it worked for him, didn't give the error message when he tried to open things. Weird. But there is still a bearshare folder, and one thing in it he was able to delete, another subfolder in it wouldn't delete.

======================
======================

Thanks for the clarification. I will merge these posts into one so that this topic won't get lost.

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 are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about the Windows version you are using: What we in particular need to know is version, edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
If you are unsure about any of these caracteristics, just let us know and we'll help you figuring it out. Please also tell us if you have your Windows CD/DVD handy.


Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • In the custom scan box paste the following:
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    activex
    drivers32
    netsvcs
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    explorer.exe
    winlogon.exe
    wininit.exe
    hlp.dat
    /md5stop
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch Topic.I suggest you click it and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti
