Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

Posted by justme4now (My Page) on
Sun, Aug 25, 13 at 2:48

Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium 64BIT

Lots of memory .. Lots of free disk space.

No problem with my Internet Connection and I am almost sure that the problem is not virus or malware related.

(Can't be absolutely sure as you will understand after reading the rest of this post)

I am desperate!

I can't open any of my browsers.

Opening anything such as tools like malwarebytes, revo uninstaller, etc. etc. is iffy!?

There seems to be no logic in what and what will not open.

Some things will open like note pad and CCleaner (From the programs folder) but wont open from the desktop!?
(No longer works)

Malwarebytes launches from the Programs folder but wont launch from the desktop!?
(No longer works either)

None of the browsers will open from the desktop, their respective folders or from the Programs folder!?

I am also getting access denied on a lot of system tools even though I am the Administrator!?

It is odd how I was finally able to get opera to launch.

I was able to get program accessories to open .. went into system tools and launched Windows Easy Transfer (don't ask).

When that window opened up .. I hit cancel and the message Are you Sure You Want To End The Transfer came up.

After clicking yes .. Opera opened!!??
(The Only way to open a browser)

In case anyone asks Hijack this or MiniToolBox wont open either!
(The folder itself will but the app wont launch.)

All of this mess seems to have started with Comodo's Security Suite.

I had installed Comodo's Security Suite and soon after started experiencing multiple hanging startups and shutdowns.

I uninstalled it, installed MSE and Windows Firewall and .. Here I am!

It looks like I may have to do a Destructive Restore if I am to have a functioning pc again?

I only hope that someone will have an idea of what is going on before I jump to such a desperate measure!?
(Can't save copies of photos or other files because system tools or downloaded software won't work)

Thanks Everyone

RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

This seems like the perfect spot to use the Kasperskey Rescue Disk, this is the instructions.

Go here to download the program.

The file is about 300 megs and is an .iso file. Burn it to a CD.

If your computer is not set to seek the CD/DVD drive first on boot up you will need to enter the BIOS to make that happen. Tapping the delete (DEL) key right after the BIOS beep will bring it up on most computers, make the change save and exit.

Place the CD in the drawer and restart. I always use graphics mode. You'll need to pay attention in the first few seconds as there are a couple of spots asking a question. Somewhere amongst a bunch of text is a note telling you to click the A button to proceed but all quite simple really.

It will also ask your permission to visit Kasprersky labs to get the latest definitions updates. Once that is done it will scan your hard drive looking for issues. It is a Linux based program and will not run within Windows, it whole purpose is to inspect the computer with nothing else running. Expect the test to last a minimum of 40 minutes, possibly beyond an hour.

It sounds like a file association problem, where you can't open anything that has an .exe extension.


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

Zep .. Is there a fix for that?

owbist, If all else fails .. I will try your suggestion.

Thank You both!

Not sure why one would wait "till all else fails". Your choice of course. Normally I like to eliminate the possibility of the bad guys invading first, then look to other avenues knowing the computer is clean.

Apart from the download time it takes mere minutes to burn the CD and get the scan running.

Edit. forgot to include a link to How to check file associations in XP - assuming you are using XP.

I might boot with F8 and look at all the restore points and pick one before the problem started.

If just associations.. Vista64 forums has a tutorial and it shouldn't hurt to download & run the .exe assoc reset...

Here is a link that might be useful: Restore Default Vista File Extension Type Associations

RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

I ran a Western Digital scan tool that said that I have a bad sector that the tool couldn't repair.

Now the question is: What will replace the HD that I have now since it (present drive) is no longer available?

Present hardware ... WDC WD6400AAKS-22A7B0 ata Hard Drive

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9300 @ 2.50GHz Processor

Or call Western Digital.

Contact information in link.

RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

Being Vista it is likely the warranty is up on the hard drive. Your info suggests a 650 gig IDE drive

Do you have the disks to re-install the operating system?

If there is a bad sector the computer usually marks that as bad and it does not get used. Have you ran chkdsk? Look here for Vista instructions to run.


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

Have run chkdsk and just about every other HD checker I could find.
Some even say that the sectors will be repaired after a new start up ... NOT!

They fix nothing.

I do have the install disc (came with the pc) and I have a set of restore disks that I made in the beginning.

Not sure what ones I should use?

Problem is .. I need to find a way to save my photos and videos.
(Ubuntu?)

I guess that all my pro software like snagit and others are gone for good though!


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

I would not be running anymore hard drive test, you will just possibility cause more damage If in fact the drive is bad.

You never told us if you could boot the computer to safe mode as mikie suggested. Will the computer boot to Safe mode?

"If there is a bad sector the computer usually marks that as bad and it does not get used."

owbist is right, I have bad sectors on mine, my drive still works ok.

The minitoolbox Icon on the desktop, can you right click on it, then choose "Rename" rename it it to miintoolbox .com.

Then see if it opens.

It boots in safe mode but all of the problems are still present.

I'll go and try the minitoolbox trick now.


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

zep

Renaming didn't help but I learned a trick by accident!

I can use IE and download a tool.
A box from IE pops up asking if I want to save or run the download.

I choose to run it and the tool will download and open.

It won't run after that though.

I didn't know what to select in the minitoolbox menu so I selected what I thought was important?

I can't make sense of any of this!?

It boots in safe mode but all of the problems are still present

OK

so you can get to the safe mode screen with all the options,

can you try last known good configuration from the list?


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

Disconnect anything from computer, printer, things like that.

Anyway you could download DDS and do a scan, here's a link

RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

I've done the restore stuff (last known good config) .. more than one date too. (NOT at the same time mind you! 8)
Nothing worked.

Nothing except my wireless mousem key board and speakers are connected

I'll go and look at the DDS tool now!

Thank You zep!


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

OK. I'll only be up for a bit, getting late. Try to get a dds scan here. It's not going to fix anything it's just a scan. I'll check in the am...

Remember you can download Malwarebytes on a flash drive from a good computer, then insert into the bad one and try running it. If you do that don't use the flash drive for anything else meaning don't put in back in the good computer. keep it set aside

Good luck!


 o
RE: Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!

I ran the DDS.
Do you want to see the results?
