I am addressing this problem that is above my knowledge to get solved.
I recently put my computer on the internet to get the lastest software since my copy of windows is genuine.
From that time on, i could any more do any system restore. Any attempt gave me an error saying that : System restore has been disabled by Group Policy, Contact your network Administrator.
Moreover, When i click on the black icon (of the command line) on the Boot menu to write commands or even use other software that i interact with using the command line tool, this one show up for less that a second before it dies away. Another problem is the fact that i cannot use the right click to display any right click related options.
The only improvement ive got from updating my copy of windows is speed improvement. I am very glad for this because its a bit faster.
help, what should i do at least to fix the command line box? I have MySQL installed on this PC and i interact with it using the command line, so i am very stuck.
1) You should backup your work (and verify the backup).
2) Your copy of Windows may be genuine, but perhaps you are running something else which is not. You should try to identify the rogue program (starting with a full virus scan).
3) Others may recognise the symptoms you have described and may be able to offer a simple solution, however, I recommend a clean install of Windows from CD (not a repair install). Then, keep the system as clean as possible with no unnecessary software.
4) Consider partitioning your hard disk and installing another copy of Windows. That way, you should always have a working system.
i am sure there is no virus. My hard drive is partitionned and the problem occurs on the other part of the hard drive too.
How are you sure there is no virus/hijack/trojan/rootkit at work here?
What does a partitioned hard disk have to do with this? You may need to explain your setup in more detail.
You need a full anti-virus solution - try AVG (free edition).
You need a firewall. The standard XP firewall can block intrusions (as might a firewall in your router) however, a firewall that blocks outgoing connections to the internet is advisable - try ZoneAlarm (free edition).
However, it is probably too late with your current setup if it has already been compromised. In that case I could only recommend a clean install of Windows.
Category: Registry Value
Element: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Command Processor\Autorun . This key is set to the value "Exit" Is this probably the reason why the command prompt disappears when activated? How can I make a correction?
The second corrupted data is as follows:
Category: Registry Data
Third infected data was:
Category: Registry Data
After that, I deleted the infected files as suggested by the Malwarebytes software, booted the system but found again the infected elements
Then someone at my work place suggested to make a repair installation with the genuine CD. I did it but the same problems occurred anew.
WHat can I do?
What can I do?
