Preferred Solution: Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ntndis.exe

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i've had this problem for quite a while now. when i start my computer, a window always pops up with this message on it, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." The "name" of the window says "C\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ntndis.exe".

i dont know if this error has something to do with my problems like not being able to see the "folder options" on the "tools menu" and not being able to use the USB ports properly (i can't sync my ipod on my pc).

i havnt done anything yet for this prob.

i forget when i started to experience this but i think it has something to do with the spyware i got a long time ago.

hope you guys can help. thanks

A:C\windows\system32\ Drivers\ntndis.exe

Hi ewoks,This is often caused when you have removed this file - ntndis.exe - from your system and when Windows try to run it, it doesn't run. Thus, you get this error message. To do this, please follow the instruction carefully. Click Start > Run > type regedit and Click OK. Registry Editor should popup now and navigate to the following:HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOn the right panel, you should be able to see the following C\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\ntndis.exe under the column Data. Now look at the same row and under column Name, Right Click and select Delete.Note: If you do not see the value in your Registry, DO NOT attempt to delete any other value! If you do not feel comfortable with dealing with your Registry, please let me know so that I can suggest another fix.WARNING: As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first. To do this, on the Registry Editor, under File, Click on Export and save it to a location.As for your "Folder Option" missing, you can try this fix from Kelly's Corner. Look for Restore Folder Options Under Tools - #129 on the left.WARNING: As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first.Please let me know of any question you may have before trying the above fix.

A:help with c:\windows\system32\drivers\ntndis.exe

Looking at QuickTime it looks like you have the latest Vundo infection....

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.


Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.cmd to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Post that log in your next reply.

I've been following the instructions for removing Security Tool Malware that has infected my computer. One of the last steps instructs me to delete the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS file. I used Windows Explorer to try and find the file, but I am unable to see it anywhere in any of the folders under my Windows folder.

Any ideas where I would find this file?

Thanks!

A:Avg Free Edition Scan: Found C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts And C:\windows\system32...

The entries you see below the local host are really BAD sites which are being redirected back to nowhere (your computer), so they can't call out. I don't know what put those entries in, quite possibly AVG or some other application you've used. They're a good thing. But ...In some computers, mine included, if a large hosts file is used, the DNS service has to be disabled. Otherwise the computer can get very, very slow for the internet access.More and better details herehttp://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htmand a quote:Editors Note: in most cases a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) tends to slow down the machine. This only occurs in W2000/XP/Vista. Windows 98 and ME are not affected.To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: PropertiesClick the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"Select: Manual, or Disabled (recommended) click Apply/Ok and restartrestart = REBOOT is a must. You can also stop and then disable the DNS service from Control Panel.See about the middle of that writeup. If I were you, I'd read the whole article. The thing that puzzles me a bit is that your hosts file isn't all that long and it sure is missing a lot of other very bad things.

..Update..A computer guy came and looked at my computer. He said I needed a new fan.. so I don't need help with that now. My Sims game also works now.I just need to know if I'm infected.. and if there's something wrong with my Spybot.. and how I could change my hosts back or whatever is wrong with them. Thanks. I have a new problem now though.. I can't watch videos on Mtv.com. When I pause them, they won't load anymore. Only if I play it.. and I don't have a very fast internet so.. it loads slow. So it always stops every 5 seconds. It's very annoying. It did it before.. but then worked sometimes. I thought it might have been the site or maybe a lot of people were watching it, but it hasn't been working at all now. Can you please help me with that too?

CD drive (D:) on my system doesn?t even exist, I have one DVD drive player and one DVD/CD burner named (F:) and (N:). When trying to manage drive letters in control panel under administrative tools disk management CD drive (D:) does not even show up, I usually have this letter reserved for an external hard drive, now none of my short cuts icons etc will work because I cannot change this letter back. The actual name of this mysterious drive in device manager is WDC WD3000JS-60PDB0, the drivers it uses is C:\windows\system32\Drivers\disk.sys and C:\windows\system32\drivers\PartMgr.sys any ideas on how to remove this. Thanks.

A:C:\windows\system32\drivers\disk.sys And C:\windows\system32\drivers\partmgr.sys

Well...you should use Disk Management to change drive letters...with the understanding that you cannot assign a letter that is already taken by any drive attached...until you change that drive's letter .This explains it better, Hard Drive Letter Assignments - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...844&sd=tech Louis

Hello iJoe,

Is there any reason you ran RootRepeal instead of gmer? I'd prefer a log from gmer as outlined in our pre-posting topic.



Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here or here. Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
Double click GMER.exe. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ... Sections
IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries


Please attach the ark.txt in your next reply

Go to this site, and download 'Hijack This!'.

Unzip it, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

open that file
Go to Edit | Select all
Now click Edit | copy to copy it

Come back to TSGweb user, Right Click and paste its contents in a new thread so it doesn't get lost

Hello, Headguard
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .



One machine at a time please. Let's start with the Vista machine. Please run these instructions on the vista machine. When we're done with it we'll do the XP one.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro. I installed Windows 10 but was not able to get past login due to 10 not recognizing my password. Restored Windows 7 Pro with MS Supt. assistance. Now when I boot up and login to my desktop I get an error ....RUN DLL  "There
was a problem starting C:\Windows\system32\nvHotkey.dll  The specified module could not be found."  My only option there is to click "OK".  I don't know what problem this is causing. ....I did discover that my Windows Media Center
will not record TV now and it did before trying to install Windows 10.

A:Solved: Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

Try running:

sfc /scannow

If you have an install disk, keep it handy.

It may replace things without prompting. Test after it completes.

If you still get the rundll32.exe missing error, download, unzip and copy the file in this attachment to the system32 folder.

On start-up I get a box saying "Windows cannot find c\windows\system32\9pxswfoqual\csrss.exe" After I click ok then I get a box saying "Windows cannot load or run c\windows\system32\9pxswfoqual\csrss.exe" If I click ok it gives those 2 boxes again then goes ahead and start up. What is it doing and how can I make it stop? It seems to be operating fine otherwise.

A:Windows cannot find c\windows\system32\9pxswfoqual\csrss.exe

That is more than likely a remnant registry or root startup entry for a virus that has been removed.

Click Start, Run, type regedit and press Enter.

Click Edit, Find and type 9pxswfoqual and click find next - if anything is found except under an MRU heading, make a note - then tap F3 key to continue searching. When the search is done, click the 'x' top right hand corner to exit the registry editor.


If nothing was in the registry, click Start, Search, and enter 9pxswfoqual - is that folder found?

Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

Hello, and Welcome to TSF.

Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools, then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.

Before beginning the fix, read this post completely. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding. Ensure that there aren't any opened browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below. Save the following instructions in Notepad as this webpage would not be available when you're carrying out the fix.

It is IMPORTANT that you don't miss a step & perform everything in the correct order/sequence.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Place combofix.exe on your Desktop
Disconnect from the internet....pull the plug!
Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with ComboFix.
Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts. Type 1, then press Enter to start the fix.
Your desktop may go blank. This is normal. It will return when ComboFix is done. ComboFix may reboot your machine. This is normal.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ensure your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications are re-enabled. A reboot should have done this.
Re-establish an internet connection.
Please download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Post the hijackthis.log file here. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

I see no evidence of the "atapi" infection. What led you to that conclusion? Is your browser being redirected? You are infected though.

------------------------------------------------------

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.

Due to the restrictions on Windows 7, all tools should be started by right-click > Run as Administrator

Hi and welcome to TSG,

This is probably the Backdoor.Prorat so it would be best to post a Hijack This Log.

Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the log and advise.

When I try to open an application in my control panel, it gives me the error:
Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

So I read that forum thread and found out to just copy it from a different folder and paste it in System32 (found that out from http://www.computing.net/answers/sec...-cd/25680.html)

So I tried to paste the Rundll32.exe, but you know what? The file was already there!

So I tried to run an application from my control panel, but it gave the same error. The file IS IN the correct spot WITH the Correct name. I triple checked it.

This makes no sense whatsoever. Help please?

By the way, I got this error after getting a virus.

A:Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

One possible explanation is that there is something (maybe in the registry) telling something else to launch, which wants and cannot find the old & infected rundll32 file.

Why do you think you are no longer infected ?

Hello Patch41,

This means that the C:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe file is missing or corrupted. See if running a sfc /scannow command can fix this system file for you.

Hope this helps,

I saw that this thread was closed, but the solution does not work on my Windows 8 PC. The bl**dy file is there: 1'097KB, but will not run from there. The fix of copying it to a different place lets it run, but just gives a few empty windows (as if the program is running but not getting the correct data!).

In any case, I really want to get a "normal" Windows 8 (if such a thing exists) where the various recipes for running the task manager work!

Springganusa,

You don't, it's a virus

Please go to this site, and download 'Hijack This!'.

Unzip it, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

open that file
Go to Edit | Select all
Now click Edit | copy to copy it
Come back to TSG, Right Click and paste its contents to this thread and someone will have a look at it for you

I have had to restore my computer recently and I run norton anti-virus, it so far has not detected anything. I'm going kind of crazy here since all I can find about system 32.exe tells me its a worm/virus.
I would really really apperciate any help.

I have been getting an error message for months saying system 32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close, send error report don't send error report. This happens when windows screen first appears when you turn the computer on.

For the first time I run a virus checker yesterday the EZ antivirus one and it deleted 91 infected files which when I looked were all worms - whatever they are.

Now when I start up the computer it takes longer to get to the windows screen and I no longer get the system32.exe has encountered a problem error instead I get 'windows cannot find system 32.exe, please specify path' or something like that.

Can anyone please help?

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer eggway Please download DrWeb-CureIt & save it to your desktop.

So obviously this computer I am working on has some type of malicious software on it and is not allowing me to run any program to remove it and it keeps popping up with

C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe
application not found

and when i do try to run a program like malwarebytes or compofix or even MSCONFIG, command prompts it wants me to choose the program i want to open up the file with. It won't let me boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking.

any advice...

A:Can't find C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

Please download exeHelper to your desktop.

Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.

A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.

Run malwarebytes(full scan in both safe and normal mode)

Hi all,
 
     Recently I tried booting up my PC, running XP, and still message came up..."cannot find \windows\system32\hal.dll."  As a result I cannot get Windows to start.  I tried pulling the hard drive and attaching to laptop as an external device but it only recognizes the recovery partition of the drive.  When I run Disk Manager it sees the partition with the system files and my personal docs but it can't access them.  I get a message that the disk is unreadable or corrupt.
 
     Since this system did not come with XP disks and only has a recovery partition I can't use a disk to run recovery.  At startup I tried to access the recovery console with no success. 
 
     Any other ideas on how to repair the missing hall.dll file? Or am I past that part and looking more at recover software that can recover my files?
 
 
Thanks

A:On XP Start up - "Cannot Find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

<<I get a message that the disk is unreadable or corrupt.>>

Windows 2000 Cannot find system32.exe My computer got a bit buggy. Cleaned with SpyBot. Norton detected trojan system32.exe but couldn't delete. I downloaded The Cleaner 4.1 which found several trojans (HideWindow and Aristotle) and deleted files that were hiding in C:\WINNT, including system32.exe and nt32.ini.

When I restarted my computer, after I get the big Windows 2000 screen, I get a flash of a blue screen message (so quick that I had to take a digital photo of it to get the text). Basically, it's telling me the computer is seaching and cannot find file system32.exe. The computer then restarts. This is now on a loop (procedure repeats) and keeps going and going.

Help? I thought I was on the right track until this happened!
Thanks
 

A:Windows 2000 Cannot find system32.exe

Since your computer will not start, I would try a repair install of win2k. This will leave all data and installed apps intact. To do this boot with your win2k cd [cd set as first boot device in the bios] The first menu gives you the option to install or repair; do not choose repair it brings up the repair console, not what you want. Choose to install. The next menu shows you any previous win2k installs and will offer to repair it for you; let it do so.

After you do a repair install of win2k, you will need to reapply sp4, any critical updates, hot fixes and or patches. I also reapply chipset / mb drivers.

For example, I go to the "C:\Windows\System32" and try to run SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe, but after double click I see the error window with message "Windows cannot find file "C:/Windows/System32/systempropertiesadvanced.exe". Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Hi There I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. I bet you are wondering what HijackThis is. Well it's a program that is simply able to show others what's going on inside your computer, in terms of infection etc..I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.

I was experiencing some erratic operation in my Win XP E-machine. I also had some malware from PC Max that I couldn't get rid of. I copied all my document files and photos to a portable HD.
I then attempted to restore my PC back to the factory settings with the supplied recovery disk. I was using the option that was supposed to maintain my personnel files and settings.
Now I am not able to boot it up and I get a message while in recovery mode that says " SYSTEM32\DRIVES\NTFS.SYS cannot be found"

E-machine.com/support says they no longer provide Recovery discs for XP. What can I do to recover the OS and be able to use my other wise perfectly good PC?

Can it be upgraded to Win 7 or 8?

Error = "windows cannot find windows\system32\cmd.exe" on system startup. I have to "ok" myself out of this box each time. It started after I downloaded a trial version of Norton AV, ran it, it found the w32.kwbot worm, and removed it (yes I admit to Kazaaing). I tried several "system restores" to previous checkpoints, but restoration was incomplete (MS makes you feel so small at times). Any ideas? I run XP. Shall I edit the heck out of the registry like the Symantec site says for this virus?
Thanks!
 

A:cannot find windows\system32\cmd.exe" on startup

cmd.exe is a legitimate XP file. Is there anything in your startup that required a DOS emulator before you removed it?

Search to see if you have cmd.exe. If not, you will need to restore it.

cmd32.exe is the usual name of the fake file.

A:Can't find \windows\system32\config\system

If you are getting this error message, first disconnect the printer and network cable. After that, disconnect all USB devices.
Then Restart your computer and go to BIOS set all USB devices to no boot.

Hi there. So I'm a Vista user, and for a while now whenever I go into my control panel to try and change say... personal settings(more recently I wanted to turn off the boot up sound) i get a popup that says Windows cannot find c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe. The only way I can think of fixing this problem is to wipe the hard drive and re-install the operating system. Does anyone know if there are less...extreme, alternatives?
Thanks,
Leesus
 

A:Cannot find c:\windows\system32\rundkk32.exe error

hopefully you mean rundll32.exe
Because if not you might have some malware present

Also if it's rundll32 then, you might need to repair Windows

I am assuming this is the remnants of some virus, but I'm concerned that there's a process still looking for it at start up each time I reboot.

Anyone have any thoughts?

A:Windows cannot find c:\windows\system32\~.exe

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.Thanks Quietman7

Hello,

I am trying to fix a friend's computer.

When I do START->Run and type cmd
or %comspec%
or c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
I get the message
"Windows cannot find C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe"

The file is there where %comspec% says it should be, and when I copy it to another name such as cmd2.exe, I can run it without any problem.

Same for regedit.

Web search indicates this might be from malware, but the system is being scanned with up-to-date AVG, but I didn't find any answer.

I followed the steps here at bleeping before submitting a HijackThis log, and tried to do a Kaspersky on-line scan, but couldn't get to download properly, perhaps because we live behind a corporate firewall. So I'll submit just the DSS log.

I'd be glad of any help.

Jim

I don't believe this is a real windows file, but may have been some virus to lock down windows.

Any ideas how to re start ( without doing a complete re boot from the W7 CD )

Hello Roger, welcome to the forums!

If you're able to boot into Safe Mode with Network (pressing F8 on the BIOS screen) you could run a Malware scan with Malwarebytes' Antimalware

Here: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

The free version does everything the paid one does, the main difference is that the free version does not run in real time, you have to do "on demand" scans.

Try that, because i can't find any info on the internet about that particular file, could be a virus.

Report back, please

Hi

I am unable to switch on the antivirus section of my PCGuard downloaded from Virgin Media. When I run the diagnostic it says the reason it fails is C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\klif.sys is not found, when I google this it says something about trojan viruses, is the case and what should I do next?

A:C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\klif.sys

klif.sys can be related to Kaspersky anti-virus - see here.Determining whether a file is malware or a legitimate process sometimes depends on the location (path) it is running from. One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file. However, it then places itself in a different location (folder) than where the legitimate file resides and runs from there. Do you now or have you ever had a Kaspersky product installed on your system?
