Hey everybody,
I'm Back!!! Hahahaha. I recently got help with a "redirect" bug and while I thought we had corrected that problem - and the symptoms have disappeared, another problem has begun. I am having instantaneous shut down of my Microsoft Office "word" program. No warning, no error message, no pattern to the madness. Sometimes it shuts down mid way through a sentence Im typing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.............

Thanks,

Cohen

Yeah, i ran the malware and after it recognized a few issues I had to reboot after having it "fix" the selected problems. I just rebooted again at your prompting. Would you like me to run a full system scan again with both the Malware software and the Hijack This software again? Thanks

No, repost the MBA-M Log.... and post a fresh HJT log.

The MBA-M log are located:

Let me work in Word and Access for a bit and see how they perform. No problems yet and I've had word open for about an hour (Previously it would have crashed a bunch of times by now so it seems a lot better). I will get on here to tomorrow and let you know how it all is going. If it is good then I will pronounce this thread "Solved". Thanks a million for the assistance.

Hi there Cohen,
Well, it appears I am having another different (related?) problem now. I am getting this "C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe" error message. It happens when I tried to open any of the utilities in the control panel, it happens when I double click the clock when trying to bring up the calender, and it happened when trying to make a shortcut to my companies server. I googled it and was I read a blog that recomended the program "Registry Patrol" so I gave it a shot. They fount "580" problems and fixed 30 problems but wanted me to buy the program to fix the others. When I tried to uninstall the program is when I encountered the error message in that location (before it I just noted it at the calender and shortcut functions). Aaaarrrrgggghhhh. This computer is driving me crazy! Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks

0

Sorry to say this Registry Patrol doesn't get very good word in a lot of places. Registry cleaner, editors....just not something I personally recommend, especially one which will "fix" some but not others without payment.
Did the program offer backup of the registry prior to these fixes?

0

Yeah, the program said that a backup was created.....should I try to back out of this?

0

Ok...I went ahead and "took a step back" with the back-up.

0

Ok..Im in safe mode now and I am still getting that same error message when I try to access certain tools in the control panel. Cannot access the "add/remove software" and others. "Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe.'"

0

WhooooHooooo!!!! Problem appears to be fixed. No more issues as I was having earlier. Thanks Cohen!!

0

Yeah...I was in safe mode and I went to the site as recommended. They instructed me to type a command in the "Run" box while having the windows xp disc in the drive. Then they instructed me to restart the computer with the disk in and Bam! Problem gone!

0

Beautiful.....

You shouldn't be thanking me. jholland was the one who found the link.

But at least it's fixed.

Good Luck for the future. If you have any future problems, come back and create a new thread, stating your problem.

Cheers,

Cohen
