Earlier this week I had scanned this computer, Dell 4600 dt, with Malwarebytes & Avira (free), found nothing. To be honest after that I really can't remember what the computer was doing, but it wasn't acting normal. Please forgive me, I am working on several faulty pc's at the moment.
After those two scans, a day/two later I scanned with other Malware Tools, TDSSKiller and Chameleon, and one of those found something and I immediately deleted it. Whatever it was destablized the system enough that I ended up doing a system restore to the day before I ran those two, so I am back where I started.
I did the latest updates from MS and I wanted to check the drivers on this pc with a tool on the Dell website. I have it downloaded/saved to dtop, but when I click to execute I get 'Cannot Start the App. Contact the vendor'.
I went to Event Viewer, Application and there are several:
ERROR: LoadPerf EVENT: 3001, the performance counter name string in the registry is incorrectly formatted. The bogus string is 20908, bosus index value is the 1st DWORD in Data Section while the last valid index values are the second & third DWORD in the Data Section.
ERROR: LoadPerf EVENT: 3011, unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl failed. The error code is the 1st DWORD in data section.
ERROR: .NET runtime 2.0 error reading EVENT: 5000, event type clr20r3, P1 addinutil.exe.......
WARNING: MSiInstaller EVENT:1015
WARNING: Userenv EVENT: 1517
THERE ARE NO ITEMS TO SHOW IN THIS VIEW.
Thanks and I appreciate any help. I did go to the files here on the forum and saw where there was a download for LoadPerf.dll, I am just not advanced enough to mess with the registry. I was hoping to get some guidance.
