Hello. I'm having many problems with my Windows XP. First off, each time I start my computer, it does a chkdsk. This is because everytime windows boots up, it comes up with a corrupt file (C:\$MFT) and sometimes an additional corrupt file (winlogon). My active malwarebytes is also blocking incoming and outcoming transmit from the IP address.

Another problem I'm having is that I apparently don't have any virtual memory, making it difficult to run more than 2 or 3 applications at once. I go into Control Panel, System, and I am greeted with this error first.

After opening the menu and trying to allocate some virtual memory, this is what the menu says.

The previous menu (not show) is saying that I have 0 virtual memory. I apply my settings, and it says a restart must happen. If I restart, it does the usual chkdsk, and if I allow it to happen, or if I skip it, it doesn't save my settings. This confuses me, seeing as how I can't change a system setting.

Next, I uinstalled iTunes because it was having a problem with creating disks. I attempt to reinstall, and it gives me some error about file permissions, even though I set the file permissions to allow me to modify the files. This leads me to think I have a virus, since something is messing with file permissions.

I've ran a full scan and a quickscan with MalwareBytes, both of them came up with nothing. I ran a flash scan, and this error was found, upon which I fixed.
Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command\(default) (Broken.OpenCommand) -> Bad: ("regedit.exe" "%1") Good: (regedit.exe "%1") -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

After I did this, I ran a ComboFix, and it deleted a large number of DLL's. I won't attach the log, because I'm not supposed to.

I appreciate you reading all of this, and would appreciate any help, or if you could perhaps redirect me to the correct forum .
Regards,
Sojurn

Since you have a ComboFix log, I suggest that you post that at BC Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html .

I also suggest that you review Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html

And...please be patient :). Some users seem to think that we are McDonalds, handing out responses/assistance with malware rather than fast food...we'd like to be but the number of malware situations versus the number of qualified volunteers who can reliably assist...doesn't permit us to respond like a fast food operation.

Current backlog in the MRL forum currently approximates 7 days or so.

I appreciate the help Louis. I wasn't quite sure where to post this, seeing as I don't know if this is a virus or not. I'll leave this thread open, and repost it in the virus section

Sojurn

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic404230.html 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days 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.
