"the specified does not exist as an installed service"

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had a virus. I hadn't downloaded anything. Virus scans didn't find anything. I couldn't access internet on any browser, and on IE the URL said something about api mybrowserbar thing after I got through millions of "IE has crashed" errors. Well, I removed some files and weird extensions on browsers and got Chrome working. Only scan that detected anything was RogueKiller, and it quarantined some files from (http://oi40.tinypic.com/2645838.jpg) the registry. Then I closed my computer. Today, when I was about to play CSS I couldn't start steam because I got some bullshit that Steam was unable to write to the current Steam application folder. When I tried to run it as an administrator (which I am), it said "the specified does not exist as an installed service". It also happens if I try edit privileges on "program files". I can't start roguekiller. I can't save photos I edit with a program which works to its own folder. I have Win 7 ultimate btw. 


I'm getting really tired on these computers with their constant problems.

Hi there,
my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.

Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.

  • First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.
  • Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.
  • If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.
  • Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.
  • Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
  • Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process. Absence of symptoms does not always mean the computer is clean.
  • My first language is not english. So please do not use slang or idioms. It could be hard for me to read. Thanks for your understanding.
