Just looked in Windows Firewall with Advanced Security and an error pops up and says it failed to load. Restart the firewall service on the computer that you are managing. Error code: 0x6D9

I believe your computer might be infected. Please click on Report and kindly ask to be moved to the Virus & Other Malware Removal forum. Be sure to provide the appropriate reports (if possible) in that forum after reading THIS. From there, be patient. The malware removal experts are very busy! You should get an answer within the next 48 hours.


Although I have found a lot of links referring to ReimageRepair.exe as being malicious, some links seem to make it a legitimate program. Have you installed that program on your computer? If so, is THIS the program?

I will unsubscribe from threads not answered within a reasonable time...

Please read instructions carefully and answer all relevant questions.
If your problem is solved, please click on the Mark Solved button. Thank you!

Lets see if you can run exe files. Click on the Start button. Type Regedit.exe and press Enter. The registry editor should be displayed after the UAC warning. Do you receive an error message during this process? Does another application attempts to open Regedit.exe?
