Hello,
I am unable to run regedit or msconfig. I checked through the threads and noticed that "amkar" posted the same kind of problem (on Sep 8th). I am running under Windows ME. I have deleted the temp internet files/cookies and history in IE. I then ran a manual scan of my PC-Cillin antivirus. I then updated files in SpyBot 1.3. I then followed the advice of "mobo" to "amkar" about Ad-Aware.
I emptied the Recycle Bin and rebooted into Safe mode and ran the following: SpyBot, Adaware, CWShredder and CCleaner. I cleaned up whatever objects they found. I then ran Hijackthis and saved the log. I was hoping someone here could take a look at the log file and inform me how to proceed from here.
I will gladly post the log to this thread when requested.

Thanks

The problem that I was mentioning that was similar to mine was in the Security thread.
Would one of the moderators please move this question to that thread please. Sorry I posted under wrong thread (I have been lookin through so many different threads trying to find if someone else was having the same problem I was).

Thanks

When I run regedit the window comes up for about 1 second then disappears. When I run MSCONFIG nothing happens.

Yes I know I have alot of junk. I wasn't aware of MSCONFIG until about 1 week ago.
When I tried to run it to stop all these programs from starting up I found I couldn't run
it. Neither could I run regedit anymore. Hence this thread.

I have been deleting programs through Add/Remove. I just added the Google toolbar
(heard it is supposed to help stop with alot of the popups). I have done a webupdate
for SpyBot and Adaware and ran them (not finding anything more these days). Also ran CWShredder and got latest CCleaner. Fixed whatever those found.

Here is the latest Hijackthis log:

I also went to BitDefenders site and ran their free virus scan utility. It reported this:

My Trend Micro PC-cillin anti-virus real time scan detected the YEA.REG trojan and
quarantined it.

1) Do I just need to boot into SAFE mode and delete:
Clifford Uninstall.exe, jmyhndrX.dll, wnhfryrs.exe and PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe ???
2) Can I just delete the quarantined trojan file YEA.REG?
3) I am running Windows ME with a user logon screen (son uses his own logon name).
Do I need to be running anything under his logon too or will all these changes I'm
doing take care of problems no matter who is logged on?

Frustrated !!! I need to get MSCONFIG running to take care of all this unnecesary startup stuff.

Hello,

Could one of the "Distinguished Members" please help. This thread seems to keep
falling through the cracks (I realize that there are few "Distinguished Members"
compared to the amount of problems people are having with their machines).

Sapphire, I just received your Private Message (PM), so I'm jumping in...not that Mobo's not doing an excellent job. :)

If the files are "uncleanable" or not able to be quarantined, delete the files.

Restart and post another HJT log.
