Running Windows Vista on an HP Media Center PC.

I had previously posted here, since the computers in network were misbehaving. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic459525.html

I tried to run DDS, and no log was generated. All it kept saying was "The system cannot find the file specified."

Then I downloaded gmer from this site. When i tried to extract files, This message was displayed: "Cannot complete the compressed folders extraction wizard. The compressed folder is empty."

i then downloaded gmer from the second download link. Entries started listing like crazy, beginning with "SSDT" then I got a blue screen before gmer finished.
Message on blue screen read: "Windows has been directed to shut down. Page fault in nonpaged area."

then i booted into safe mode with networking. Got a message saying Windows Security Center is turned off. when I tried to turn it on, message read "security center service can't be started."

Then a recovery screen popped up: Windows has recovered from an unexpcted shutdown.
Problem Event Name: Blue Screen
Os version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale id: 1033

When i typed on the keyboard, every keystroke appeared in double, e.g. Ggmmeerr, for gmer.

I tried running gmer again and got a blue screen again. This time, it read "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"

please help.
Thx.

Hello,lets trty to tun OTL.

Please download OTL by OldTimer and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other applications and windows so that you have nothing open.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.

    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
    If you receive a UAC prompt asking if you would like to continue running the program, you should press the Continue button.
  • Under Output, ensure that Minimal Output is selected.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
    Leave the remaining selections to the default settings.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Do not use the computer while the scan is in progress.
  • When the scan is complete, two log files will open in Notepad:
    • OTListIt.txt <- (will be maximized)
    • Extras.txt <- (will be minimized in the Task Bar).
  • Both logs are automatically saved to the Desktop.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of OTListIt.txt and Extras.txt in your next reply.
    If the Extras.txt log is too long, you may need to add a second reply to your thread or upload it as an attachment.
  • Click the red X in the upper right corner to exit OTL.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run. If OTL did not work, then reply back here.


Now post that in a new topic here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.

Let me know if that went well.

You're quite welcome!!

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 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 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. 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 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 MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 3 days and ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
