I need to find the source file or registry that creates "Services" Exceptions in the firewall of Windows XP when the system is restarted.

I have a boot sector virus (Troj/MBroot-H) that I can not remove from my computer without losing access to my HARD drive due to a custom boot partition.  I can't afford to repair or replace the computer I have at the moment, so I try to disable things as much as possible to neutralize this virus.  I have already downloaded Malwarebytes and analysis had revealed 18 registry viruses and files that have already been removed from the system.  The HelpAssistant account and its files have been deleted from the system.

The only thing left to change is the firewall of Windows XP.  I currently have to restore Windows Firewall to its settings by default whenever I restart my computer because the virus has configured the system to add more 'services' and 'management' objects in the list of Exceptions whenever the system is restarted.  If I don't do that an outside source will invade the system via remote desktop and add the HelpAssistant account and the file.  I need to know how to replace system orders that creates these objects for additional exceptions during the restart.  I want to restore full contol on the firewall of Windows XP by allowing not exceptions except those I choose.  Is there a Window XP Firewall registry key or file that can be removed, replaced or changed to keep these elements to be added to the list of exceptions?

Thank you

The computer is still severely infected and you will not be able to "establish complete control over the firewall of Windows XP". Backup your data and do a clean install of Windows. I understand that you do not want to hear this, but it is, IMO, the answer. Please specify your first sentence if you need assistance.

    I tried a trial version of lightroom 6 and edited hundreds of photots I need to find the export files are small non-printable, about 600 kbs. So I bought lightroom 6 hoping to save my changes on all the photos. However with my purchase of more than a week, my picture exports are still about 600 kbs. Not printable! I'm signed and registered. Whats happening?

    Looks like you have been in the library module and chose with a preset export or export to email. Whatever it is, your Presets 'export' were to reduce the size of the image exported to about 600 k.

    In Lightroom, the library module and under the file menu, simply select the Word Export. Who will open another dialog box. GO through each option in this dialog box to choose where you want to export the file, what color space to use, what name to give to each folder, what metadata to include and do not forget to select the export size! I included a few screenshots for your reference.

    If you export exactly the same path several times, you can create your own export preset to make this process faster.

    32-bit to 64-bit custom clean installation steps

    You can use a disk upgrade, but you cannot make a room upgrade from a 32-bit system on a 64-bit system, the only way is to do a custom clean install. This means that you will have to reinstall all your programs, but you can save your files and settings on an external storage before that with Windows Easy Transfer. According to Microsoft the following steps:

    1. start Windows Upgrade Advisor (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor ) to see if there are known issues that may affect the installation and the question of whether you should install the version of 32 or 64 bit Windows 7.

    2 back up your files and settings. To avoid losing everything that you will need to save copies of all files, photos and other information that you want to keep an external hard drive. Windows Easy Transfer (http://windows.microsoft.com/windows-easy-transfer ) is a free tool that you can use to copy your information (but not programs) from your PC and then put them after installing Windows 7. If you do not have an external hard drive, you will not be able to use Windows Easy Transfer, instead you can copy the files you want to keep on a USB stick or CD/DVD.

    3. find the discs original installation and license/product keys associated to programs currently on your computer because you will have to manually reinstall your programs after installing Windows 7. You may be able to download programs from the Internet.

    4 Medallion the Windows 7 DVD in your PC, reboot, start of the DVD. When asked "which type of installation do you want?" click "Custom (advanced)."

    5. when Windows 7 is installed, you can use Windows Easy Transfer to restore your files & settings and use your installation diskettes to install all your programs.

  • Need to find the correct reference for replacement screen Aspire 5742

    Hello

    I need to find the correct part for replacement screen Aspire 5742.  The backlight does not work anymore, and I already bought a UPS to see that this model/version does not use a UPS (as the backlight is LED and integrated in the element of the screen).  I find the somewhat confusing model numbers table.  The full model version seems to be:

    5742 - 464G50Mnnk

    S/N: [redacted to comply with guidelines]

    SNID [redacted to comply with guidelines]

    This seems to be a very good laptop that belongs to a mine Guigou, but not worth repair at the local dealership, and I'm sure I can replace the screen myself if I can get the right part, having already dismantled the set of sieves and to be an electronic engineer.

    Either way, I guess that this version of model is the 5742, not the 5742 G (even if the model number has a 'G' in it: some of the confusion).  Any help would be appreciated.

    Part numbers for the 15.6 TFT LCD for the Aspire 5742 are:

    LK.15605.004
    LK.15605.010

  • Win 7 Pro, FX6100, 8 GB of ram, 250 GB ssd; cannot find the system partition

    Basics are there.  It blocks from the tent to set up partitions.  I am giving all of the 250 GB SSD to use as seems it and it is just lost.  It does work with no partitions, partition of the entire disk.  He didn't tell me what he wants.  And error messages make no sense.

    They are like: (and my response)

    cannot find the system partition (do a stupid)
    Can not find the installation partition (crikey, I gave you the entire disk, make one)

    Talk about mega-frustration.  How about a useful error message and some useful ways to respond.

    >:-((

    If the ssd is not recognized in the first part of the installation process, as a location to install win on, you need to check the manual of the card mother about all the necessary bios for its port settings, or weather, you need to install any third-party disk controller.

    And if it's a new ssd, must not contain any partition table, unless you have prepared this ssd when you started in one of your other installations win, that can be part of your problem.

    No, do not all repair with VSS, because his race for your C: drive

    Now the main question: your firmware from the computer's BIOS or EFI (or EFI running in emulation of the BIOS)?

    Why I ask: when converter trying to reconfig machine (data is already copied) we found information BCD in place where it is stored to * EFI * machines, seems that it is false BCD and the converter cannot remedy this situation...

    As a workaround, you can locate on your source disk folder named EFI (C:\EFI) and rename or delete. (if somehow that this is related with PGP the best choice is to rename the folder).

    Then repeat the conversion.

  • (95%) FAILED: Could not find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible.

    Hello

    I'm trying to virtualize a physical machine to my VMware infrastructure. I success to another machine, but this time it crashes.

    Here are the features:

    Software: Client VMware Converter standalone 4.0.1

    Machine: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise with Exchange 2003 SP1

    Disks: 2 * 80 GB drives used in RAID 1 software mirror (2 partitions C: & D: cross the two discs)

    VMware farm: ESXi 4.1

    Configuration of the converter: http://image.bayimg.com/faackaadc.jpg

    I try to convert the machine but I get the following message "FAILED: could not find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible." 95 per cent at the stage of reconfiguration (he create only a single vmdk).

    My research, it is likely due to software mirror, implying to dynamic disks.

    But I must not modify the physical machine, I have to migrate the computer because it is unchanged.

    A machine appears in vCenter. When I started it, it does not start. With QParted, I activated the flag of "boot". Now the machine starts, but I immediately get a blue screen even in safe mode. ( http://image.bayimg.com/faacaaadc.jpg )

    I've added the vmdk to another machine, and run diskmgmt.msc to convert dynamic disk to basic disk, but he saw disc base already.

    Hello JothinVedere

    After you have re-installed Windows XP, you can go on the site Web of Norton and download the software from their part. Once you have downloaded it you should be asked for an email or an account that you configured when you first bought Norton, log. After that, Norton is turned on with the rest of the time for your subscription should be displayed. If you have further questions about Norton, you can click on their link to support here.
