I remember once reading that Windows has a clean copy of regedit somewhere, but I can't find the original article that told me.

I recently lost my regedit to a virus, and am hoping to use the backup that Windows has. (I can import a clean regedit from another computer, but this would be easier, if it exists.)

system32\dllcache but it should have automatically replaced the missing one.

It didn't automatically recreate it. But I was able to copy/paste from the directory you showed me.

Thank you.

Your Windows File Protection may have been disabled by the virus. Go to your windows directory and delete, lets say, twunk_16.exe. See if it gets recreated after a few seconds or asks for a CD. If not, restore it from your Recycle Bin.

If it didn't recreate it or ask for a CD you will need to look into why WFP is disabled.

Reference: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic410389.html

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs 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 Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Now that your log is posted and you are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Louis
