Wat does regedit means


regedit is an an inbuilt Microsoft Registry Editor. To start the regedit.exe go to Start>>>Run>>> type regedit and click OK. The Microsoft Registry Editor (regedit.exe) enables you to view, search for, and change settings in your system registry, which contains information about how your computer runs. Although you can use Registry Editor to inspect and modify the registry, doing so is not recommended, because making any incorrect changes can damage your operating system. Please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Registry for more details.

Windows error messages


"Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer"

start >run>regedit
go to: REGEDIT - registry editor
When in registry editor: HKEY_CURRENT_USER – right click for permissions
Advanced Security Settings under 1st tab permissions
You will probably get this error message, "You can't remove restricted because this object is inheriting permissions from its parent.
To remove restricted, you must prevent this object from inheriting permissions. Turn off the option for inheriting permissions, and then try removing RESTRICTED again.
· Unclick: include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent
· Windows security warning: options to add/ remove/ cancel
· Click Remove inherited parent permissions
Denied all access
Continue – delete restricted
Once removed,
Follow this path in registry editor:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\software\classes\.html
Right click (Default)
Change value data from (in my case Chrome – it could be Firefox as well):
From: ChromeHTML To: htmlfile
From: FirefoxHTML To: htmlfile
Repeat steps for .htm, .shtml, .xht if they exist

Error 3 is a failure to communicate with Google Update. There are two known reasons for this:
  1. You're running Vista/ 7 and you have configured Google Chrome to always run as administrator. This is a known issue with the Google Chrome auto-updating mechanism and can be avoided by simply running Google Chrome as a normal user. Additionally, keep in mind that for security reasons we recommend that you don't elevate the privilege of Google Chrome to administrator.
  2. Google Update isn't registered properly. To fix this, verify that GoogleUpdate.exe exists in the location specified in the Windows Registry Editor.

    The instructions below involve viewing your registry. If you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with this, you may want to consult your local computer guru before following these steps.

    1. Go to the Start menu > Run.
    2. Enter regedit.
    3. Click OK. The Registry Editor should appear.
    4. In the tree view on the left, navigate to the following directory:

      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2F0E2680-9FF5-43C0-B76E-114A56E93598}\LocalServer32

    5. The "Default" value should correspond to the location of your GoogleUpdate.exe or GoogleUpdateOnDemand.exe file. Verify that GoogleUpdate.exe exists at the given path.
      • If GoogleUpdate.exe doesn't exist in this location, try uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome.
      • If GoogleUpdate.exe or GoogleUpdateOnDemand.exe exists at a different location, right-click the 'Default' value and select Modify. Enter the correct file path and make sure you use double-quotation marks, e.g. "C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe(or GoogleUpdateOnDemand.exe)"
  3. You can also try reinstalling Google Chrome and install through an alternate installer

    Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
    Thanks.
    Have a good day

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini

About settings on my computer


you can try to restore it to an earlier time before you started adjusted the registration files. Go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools> system restore and choose a date before you started adjusting the files. The computer will restore and reboot. If this does not help you resolve the regedit.exe problem then I suggest booting from cd rom and selecting Repair. This will restore any windows files that has been corrupted or deleted.

I hope this helps

How to remove manually Malwarrior rootkit malaware please help


Sir,

Manual removal of any spyware can be difficult. When you try to manually remove MalWarrior 2007, you risk destroying your PC. It’s highly recommended you use an automatic spyware scanner to determine you’re infected with MalWarrior 2007. It’s also recommended you backup your system any time before editing your registry.


Your Windows registry is the core of your Windows operating system, storing information about user settings, system preferences, and software, including which applications automatically launch at start up. Because of this, spyware, malware, and adware will often bury their own files into your Windows registry so that they automatically launch every time your start up your PC.

Because your registry is such a key piece of your Windows system, you should always backup your registry before you make any changes to it. Editing your registry can be intimidating if you’re not a computer expert, and when you change or a delete a critical registry key or registry value, there’s a chance you may need to reinstall your entire Windows operating system. Make sure your backup your registry before editing it.
  1. Select your Windows menu “Start,” and click “Run.” An “Open” field will appear. Type “regedit” and click “OK” to open up your Registry Editor.
  2. Registry Editor will open as a window with two panes. The left side Registry Editor’s window lets you select various registry keys, and the right side displays the registry values of the registry key you select.
  3. To find a registry key, such as any MalWarrior 2007 registry keys, select “Edit,” then select “Find,” and in the search bar type any of MalWarrior 2007’s registry keys.
  4. As soon as MalWarrior 2007 registry key appears, you can delete the MalWarrior 2007 registry key by right-clicking it and selecting “Modify,” then clicking “Delete.”
Computer acting funny after you’ve edited your registry and deleted MalWarrior 2007 registry keys? Just restore your registry with your backup.
How to remove MalWarrior 2007 DLL files: Like most any software, spyware, adware, and malware may also use DLL files. DLL is short for “dynamically linked library,” and MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, like other DLLs, carryout predetermined tasks. To manually delete MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, you’ll use Regsver32, a Windows tool designed to help you remove DLL and other files.
  1. First you’ll locate MalWarrior 2007 DLL files you want to delete. Open your Windows Start menu, then click “Run.” Type “cmd” in Run, and click “OK.”
  2. To change your current directory, type “cd” in the command box, press your “Space” key, and enter the full directory where the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located. If you’re not sure if the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located in a particular directory, enter “dir” in the command box to display a directory’s contents. To go one directory back, enter “cd ..” in the command box and press “Enter.”
  3. When you’ve located the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you want to remove, type “regsvr32 /u SampleDLLName.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 /u jl27script.dll”) and press your “Enter” key.
That’s it. If you want to restore MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you removed, enter “regsvr32 DLLJustDeleted.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 jl27script.dll”) into your command box, and press your “Enter” key.

Thanks
Good Luck
