I've a complaint about Emsisoft Emergency Kit recommended in the tutorial:
"Remove the Urausy FBI Ransomware Infection (Uninstall Guide)"
On 2/14/2014 I was googling for software tools for cleaning infections and the recommendation for Emsisoft caught my eye. It looked like something I wanted to add to my toolkit so I downloaded it from the link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/emsisoft-emergency-kit/
And installed it to my computer selecting E:\eek which is my external USB 3.0 hard drive. After the installation I ran a scan (included PUP) and quarantined the items found (nothing serious, all identified as adware).
My complaint is that after the installation and scan, my folder settings were changed so that "my Computer" came up with items listed in groups instead of the "details" setting in effect before the installation of EEK. I then changed the view back to "details" and resized the columns but closing and re-opening "my Computer" and the display is back in "groups." Using Windows System restore from a checkpoint created two days before I installed EEK failed with an error message (not recorded) and did not fix the problem. Trying to use the tools -> folder options (reset all folders) did not work and just made things worse (my computer is not working as it was before EEK). A second system restore to one week before EEK seemed to fix the problem but then Firefox would not run (just gave an audible beep).
In desperation, I restored the C: partition from a full system backup (Terabyte Image for Windows) created 2/5/2014. After the restore, I extracted new (updated) files that were created on the machine after the 2/5/2014 backup from a full system backup created 2/15/2014 after the Installation of EEK (e-mail, log files, documents, etc.).
My question: Has anyone else experienced this problem after installing EEK?
My system is Windows XP Home SP3.
