I've got something messing up my registry - help?!
« on: February 08, 2008, 12:23:53 PM »
Had internet explorer on MySpace and shortly after I began getting a lot of pop-ups.  Now when I turn on the computer I get a windows pop up that states:
During a scan potential errors in the system registry were found.
p-07-0100 irql: if SYSVER Oxff00024
NT_Kernel error 1256
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

And after start up I get another box that states:
 A Potential problem has been detected and windows has been buggy application to prevent damage to your computer.
****wxy2.sys - address f73120AE base at c00000 date stamp 3bb072A3
Kernel Debugger using: comz
(port ox2bf, baud rate 192000)

do you have a backup? , will it load in safemode?

if you dont have a backup , and can load safemode

This is a VIRUS.

One solution:

Delete any files under C:\ and My Documents called posxxx.tmp.
Download VundoFix and ComboFix.
Run VundoFix first,
if there are still any files that it can’t delete after rebooting then run ComboFix.
if not working try here:

If you receive advice from someone other than the approved Malware Removal Specialists, you do so at your own risk.  We are not responsible if you take potentially inaccurate/harmful advice from someone who is not a designated helper.  Anyone interested in joining the crew must have a good amount of experience and submit references to CBMatt (Chris) in a PM.  References will be checked.  Others posting advice without approval are subject to have their posts removed immediately as the wrong advice is too risky.  We welcome new helpers so if you are interested, follow the above guidelines.

As said, please contact Chris, and he'll be happy to talk to you.
My message was not to discourage you. It's just a precaution. Most people posting in this section are not experienced enough to go through links by themselves. If they start on wrong foot, there may be more damage, then a cure.
