Chelepoy:
What antivirus are you using? How about any other protection, like spyware, firewall, etc.? I answered one of your other posts, and it appears that you somehow got the attention of several destructive processes.

I have seen this type of problem occur with another PC. Even though the virus is gone, it planted a reference in your startup configuration to call that file on opening Windows. Therefore, Windows goes and tries to open it each time it starts.

The file needs to be removed from startu process - and NO you do not have to reformat. Go to the Start button and select Run. Type in msconfig and hit OK. This brings up a window titled System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab at the far right. You will see a list of all programs that are automatically being called to open at Windows startup, and all that are active are checked. In that list you will find the file that is being mentioned in the dialog box. Click on the checkbox to clear the checkmark to disable. (It would probably be a good idea to check the others listed and make sure you recognize them, and they are all actually items you want to run at startup.) Then click OK, which will close the window. Restart and the message should not appear again.

You can also search for the file name just to make sure that it is really gone, and I would use some part of it with an *, e.g., SSCI*.* in the search, as many of these types of malware will alter their own names as they go in an attempt to avoid being eradicated by antivirus software. (It should be gone, since Windows is telling you it can't find it at startup - but there could be a related, slightly renamed version lying there unidentified yet.)

By the way, a google on that file name gave me only one result, which was a forum post unlike yours, and no virus definition files seem to include it. In regard to defrag, no, this should not have any relationship to a defrag process. What diskeeper program are you using, and have you tried the basic MS defrag process? If it won't work, often it is because the hard drive does not have enough free space. However, that is a separate issue which we can deal with more fully in another session - let's make sure your startup irritation is gone first!

Please let me know how this goes, and if you receive a dialog box from Windows re the startup process when it restarts, I will help you understand this. It will require downloading, installing, and running Windows Defender (one more way MS makes sure they get their products on our machines).

I am certain you are going to be corrected! Thanks for rating FixYa!

My computer keeps saying I have a dialog box open . what do I do


It means a small message box is requesting your attention. It may be hidden underneath other windows. If you hold the ALT key and press the TAB key at the same time you can cycle through the windows that are currently open. Usually the dialog box will be something like "Are you sure you want to quit" or "Would you like to save before exiting".

If you have sufficient computer expertise to deal with superior PC problems, you may consider repairing registry problems simply through built- in Registry Editor. Before editing the Windows registry, you need to make a backup for the registry files:
  1. Click Start, and then select Run, and type REGEDIT on the pop- up. Click OK.
  2. In the Registry Editor, select the registry key you need to back up.
  3. From the Registry menu, select Export Registry File option.
  4. From the Save In list, click the folder where you want to save the backup.
  5. In the File Name box, type a name for your backup file, such as "Options" or "Backup."
  6. In the Export Range box, be sure to select "Selected branch" option.
  7. Click Save. The file is saved with a .reg extension.

Once finishing backing up the registry files, you are allowed to edit the registry manually:
  1. Click Start, and then go to Run.
  2. Type "regedit" onto the dialog box, and then press Enterto enable Registry Editor.
  3. Find out HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder and double click to open it. Then click "Software" folder, go to "Microsoft" folder, select "Windows" folder, click"Currentversion" Folder.
  4. Click "Run" folder ==> Click on the UIMain.exe file.
  5. Click Delete UIMain.exe key to remove the file.

When I open computer a message displayed cannot find regsvr.exe


Hi there.
You have a virus on the PC!!

What the regsvr.exe virus does?
• This worm creates folders and a registry entry to enable its automatic execution at every system startup.
• This worm also creates a scheduled task to enable its automatic execution at a specified date and/or time.
• It also creates Autorun.inf file for its auto execution.
Solution to fix the problem:
1. If the task manager and registry editor is disabled then we need to enable them first. Read this post.
2. Delete the Autorun.inf file created by the virus. First go to cmd (start menu, run or search, type “attrib X:Autorun.inf –s –r –h” without quotes where X is your drive name which is having the problem. Now the file is visible and ready to delete. After deleting the file, close the explorer and open it again
3. Now type msconfig in the Run dialog and click on startup tab.
4. Look for regsvr and uncheck any options, click OK.
5. Now traverse to control panel -> scheduled tasks, and delete the At1 task that might be listed there.
6. Type regedit in the Run dialog to open the registry editor.
7. Click on Edit -> Find and search for regsvr.exe
8. Just delete all the occurrences of regsvr.exe virus (do not confuse it with regsvr32.exe which is not a virus).
9. Navigate to entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon and modify the entry Shell = “Explorer.exe regsvr.exe” to delete the regsvr.exe from it.
shell_regsvr.jpg10. Now to actually delete the virus from the system go to system32 folder and delete the regsvr.exe virus file from there (you will need to uncheck the option of “Hide Protected System Files and Folders” in Folder Options to view the virus file).
Reboot the system for changes to take place.
If this is too much for you to understand please post back for an alternative.

Good luck

Cant access to hel menu when i m pressing the F1 key


Use the System Configuration utility (Msconfig.exe) to extract the original Helpctr.exe file to the Windows\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries folder on your hard disk. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer in Safe mode. To do this, restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key after your computer completes the Power On Self Test (POST), and then click Safe Mode on the Startup menu.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  4. In the System Configuration Utility dialog box, click Extract File.
  5. In the Specify the system file you would like to restore box, type helpctr.exe, and then click Start.
  6. In the Restore from box, click Browse, and then browse to the C:\Windows\Options\Install folder, where C: is the drive on which Windows is installed, and then click OK.

    NOTE: Use C:\Windows\Options\Install if you installed a Windows Me retail product, or C:\Windows\Options\Cabs if your computer manufacturer installed Windows Me.

    Windows Me installs the cabinet files, by default, in the Windows\Options\Install folder. If these files are on your computer, you do not need your Windows Me CD-ROM because you can extract the Helpctr.exe from the appropriate folder on your hard disk.
  7. In the Save file in box, click Browse, and then browse to your C:\ drive (where C is the drive on which Windows is installed), and then click OK.
  8. Click OK to extract the file.
  9. Click Yes to the The destination folder C:\ does not exist. Do you want to create it? message.
  10. Click OK to the The file has been successfully extracted message, and then click OK to close the System Configuration Utility dialog box.
  11. Start Windows Explorer: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. Locate the Helpctr.exe file that you extracted to your drive C.
  12. Move the Helpctr.exe file to the C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries folder by right-clicking the Helpctr.exe file and selecting Cut. Navigate to the Binaries folder, right-click the folder, and then click Paste on the shortcut menu.
  13. Click Start, and then click Run.
  14. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

  15. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Helpctr.exe In the right pane, verify that the key is set to the following value: C:\Windows\PCHealth\Helpctr\Binaries\Helpctr.exe If this registry entry does not exist, create a new entry. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
    2. Right-click App Paths, point to New, and then click Key.
    3. Type Helpctr.exe.
    4. In the left pane, click Helpctr.exe.
    5. In the right pane, right-click (Default), and then click Modify.
    6. In the Value data box, type C:\Windows\PCHealth\Helpctr\Binaries\Helpctr.exe, and then click OK.
  16. On the Registry menu, click Exit to quit the Registry Editor.
