to the Bleeping Computer Forums. My name is Phil and I will attempt to help you with your problem. If you would permit it, I would like to address you by your first name.
What .reg file did you download, and from where? Do you still have it? Did you do a registry backup before you patched the registry?
Please provide some information about your computer and the operating system.
Do you have any restore points from before you did the registry patch? Do you have any full system backup images that you could restore from?
Since the problem started after you patched the registry, it is more likely that your issue is registry-related, rather than malware-related.
Sorry for so many questions, but I need more information to determine the best way to resolve your problem.
Have a great day, despite your computer issues.
