Posted 04 March 2013 - 10:04 AM

We had a visit from the nephew this past weekend and he brought down the thunder on my fresh installation of Windows XP. I only reinstalled XP due to a HDD hardware failure. Anyhow...without permission my nephew jumps off playing minecraft on the xbox360 to play it on the pc. I walk in as he is clicking "yes" to numerous dialog boxes. The damage was already done. I had 4 toolbars, numerous shopping software installs, yonton (eset found and removed), we-care, and w3i net assistant.

 

Using control panel add/remove programs I was able to remove most. Yonton(sp?) was removed from an eset's scan. We-care and w3i will not uninstall. Avast didn't find anything wrong. I can't run malwarebytes, ccleaner, or even install some (maybe all) programs. During any install i've done I get a class not registered error. Also there are 3 files with no name or file extension in my control panel. If I right click them i get a sub menu asking me if I want to delete short cut.

 

Please help.

Download

 

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileassoc/linkfile_fix.zip

 

Extract and launch it ,click YES

 

Restart
the PC.Malwarebytes should launch now.Class not registered error should
have stopped malwarebytes from creating icon on desktop so you need to
browse to C:\programfiles\malwarebytes folder and launch mbam.exe.

 

LNK fix should also fix the Internet explorer crash.

 

 


Malwarebytes

--------------------

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.  If you already have it installed launch the program and update the database.

  • Important!! When you save the mbam-setup file, rename it to something random (such as 123abc.exe) before beginning the download.  You can also right click on the link and select Save Link As

Malwarebytes may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on the renamed file to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to this Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings except to uncheck any offer for a free Pro trial version
  • Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • Under the Scanner tab, make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • When finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box, then click the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and then click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes when done.

Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.

I did as asked with link fix but now my iexplorer will close once it opens. Malwarebytes is now installed but I get an error when trying to launch it. The errors are:

 

vbAcceleratorSGrid II Control runtime error "0"

Run-time error "440" automation errorS

 

Should I continue with the rest of the instructions or should I wait till malwarebytes and iexplorer are fixed?
