This started with my computer is doing weird stuff, which it still does.  Most of my programs won't open.  Programs will run from the downloads folder most of the time but not from the desktop or taskbar or start menu.  Gives a parameter is incorrect error.  Thought I would mention.

Let's look for RootKits.

Read carefully and follow these steps.

  • Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application.


  • Click Change parameters


  • Check the boxes next to Verify Driver Digital Signature and Detect TDLFS file system, then click OK


  • Click on the Start Scan button to begin the scan and wait for it to finish.

    NOTE: Do not use the computer during the scan!

  • During the scan it will look similar to the image below:


  • When it finishes, you will either see a report that no threats were found like below:


    If no threats are found at this point, just click the Report selection on the top right of the form to generate a log. A log file report will pop which you can just close since the report file is already saved.

  • If any infection or suspected items are found, you will see a window similar to below:


    • If you have files that are shown to fail signature check do not take any action on these. Make sure you select Skip. I will tell you what to do with these later. They may not be issues at all.
    • If Suspicious objects are detected, the default action will be Skip. Leave the default set to Skip.
    • If Malicious objects are detected, they will show in the Scan results. TDSSKiller automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects
    • Make sure that Cure is selected. Important! - If Cure is not available, please choose Skip instead. Do not choose Delete unless instructed to do so.
  • Click Continue to apply selected actions.
  • A reboot may be required to complete disinfection. A window like the below will appear:


    Reboot immediately if TDSSKiller states that one is needed.

  • Whether an infection is found or not, a log file should have already been created on your C: drive (or whatever drive you boot from) in the root folder named something like TDSSKiller.2.1.1_27.12.2009_14.17.04_log.txt which is based on the program version # and date and time run.
  • Attach this log to your next reply.

TDSSKiller had an update which I downloaded and installed.  There is an extra check box under Additional Options where I am changing the parameters, it says Use KSN to scan objects.  Don't know whether to check it or not.......I will leave it blank since you didn't mention it, can always scan again.

I ran the scan twice because I forgot to click Report the first time but for some reason there are three log files dated today.  I'm attaching them all.

Your TDSSKiller log shows unsigned files, that's expected and quite normal.

Since TDSSKiller, didn't turn up anything of interest, I would like to use a different tool.

Download ComboFix from Link

Save as Combo-Fix.exe during the download. ComboFix must be renamed before you download to your Desktop

!!! IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix to your Desktop

NOTE: ComboFix is an advanced utility, and is not like traditional automated tools. It will delete anything that it knows is bad without asking for confirmation, it will save backup copies in it's quarantine automatically, it will restart your computer, and it will produce a log that allows me to analyze and determine if there is anything left over. This log will not contain any personal information, or information about any of your documents, pictures, music, videos, etc. It only compiles information on which applications/drivers/etc were installed within the last 30 days, any applications that have certain properties that could be used for malicious purposes, and most of the load points on your system that can be abused by malicious software. If there is a false positive, and something gets deleted that should not, then I can write a script for ComboFix that will tell it to restore specific items that it deleted.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

    See HERE for help

  • Double click on Combo-Fix & follow the prompts.
When finished, ComboFix will produce a log.


1. Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall!

2. Remember to re-enable your anti-virus and anti-spyware before reconnecting to the Internet.

3. If you get a message that states "illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion" restart your computer.


  • ComboFix (C:\combofix.txt)
Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!

I figured out how to turn off compatibility mode.  I noticed that many services are disabled.  Has me worried.


I'm a little confused about how to change the name of ComboFix but as long as I can get that figured, I'm going to start the scan.

Windows Repair won't run for me.  I checked the boxes you said but it thinks I didn't check any.  It says You must choose at least 1 repair option.

I ran a RougeKiller scan right before I started talking to you.  It found some things which I didn't delete or mess with because I was nervous about it and then I started talking to you so..... anyway here is the log file.

ok, I did the RogueKiller fixes and then Windows Repair worked just fine but still getting the same error with ComboFix.                   OS Incompatible.  Maybe I didn't change the file name correctly?  I changed the name in the download folder and then tried to run it.  I didn't see an opportunity to change it before that.

OK, we won't use ComboFix, for now.

Download from here

  • Run an update by clicking the Auto Update button on the Right of the Log window: AVZupdate.jpg
  • Click Start to begin the update

    Note: If you receive an error message, chose a different source, then click Start again

  • After the update, from the "File" menu, choose "Standard Scripts"
  • Put a check next to item 2: Advanced System Analysis
  • Click Execute selected scripts
  • At the next prompt, click the OK button
  • Let the scan run and click "OK" when the completion prompt pops up
  • Now Close out of the Standard Scripts window, and exit AVZ
  • Navigate to the avz4 folder and locate the folder LOG
  • Inside the LOG folder you will find virusinfo_syscheck.htm, virusinfo_syscheck.htm and
  • Attach the Compressed file,, to your next reply.
