Multiple IE/installer/tool-taskbar troubles

Unread postby gilbertmt » November 26th, 2008, 8:37 pm

My husband's computer; he talked to Dell for 90 minutes, no joy. Can't access Documents, download from IE, right-click on IE, no tool(task?) bar on IE, no Menu on IE, Windows Installer keeps flickering, can't change task/toolbar on desktop. Computer rejects my attempts to fix each problem. Thank you in advance. -Lisa

Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.

If you think you have similar problems, please post a log in the HJT forum and wait for help.

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
  1. Please Read All Instructions Carefully
  2. If you don't understand something, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
  3. Please do not run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you
  4. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
    (Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

If you can do those few things, everything should go smoothly Image

Please Note, your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use.
Be assured, any links I give are safe


I apologize for the delay in responding, but as you can probably see the forums are quite busy.
Unfortunately there are far more people needing help than there are helpers.

If you still require help please do the following

Download and Run RSIT
  • Please download Random's System Information Tool by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open:
    • log.txt will be opened maximized.
    • info.txt will be opened minimized.
  • Please post the contents of both log.txt and info.txt.

The machine was in the shop before I got your reply-thank you!

It apparently has a virus which affects the "restore" feature-I've asked my husband to find out exactly what the problem was, so I can post it here.
