After reading suggestions for curing the FBI virus I attempted to download the Emsisoft Emergency Kit using the link in the forum article "Automated Removal Instructions for Urausy Trojan using the Emsisoft Emergency Kit". The kit downloaded as a zip-file. After extracting the files I find that the extracted folder contains only one object, a folder named Run. And that folder is empty. I gave up after downloading it again five more times with the same results. What do you suppose I did wrong?

My computer is not infected with the FBI malware. I want to download the tools so I will be prepared for a future infection.

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.

@ unixguy

If you need assistance, please start your own topic. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more members at the same time in the same thread. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using and the presence of other malware. Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is not considered proper forum etiquette.

Thanks for your cooperation.

I've solved my problem by restoring the C: partition from a backup predating the problem with EEK. I was looking for the appropriate place to post my experience and ask if anyone else has experienced the same result installing EEK on a clean computer. So I used the search function for the forum and found the OP's topic.

My apologies for the etiquette infraction and thank you for your recommendations.

If you can, please move my post to an appropriate topic (maybe "problem reports/questions on using our recommended tools"?) .
