Recommended Posts

I can't connect to local shares in windows 10.  I get 

Network Protocol Missing

Which when I google for it, I get:


I also get "Windows sockets registry entries required for network connectivity are missing"

Which when I google for it, I get:


When I try to install reimagerepair, Malwarebytes quarantines it.  So it's malware?  If so, what do I do instead?

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes 3 Help forum.


If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following: 


If you haven't done so already, please run these two tools and then attach the logs in your next reply:

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained is safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)
    1. Download FRST and save it to your desktop
      Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit
    2. Double-click to run FRST and when the tool opens click "Yes" to the disclaimer
    3. Press the "Scan" button
    4. This will produce two files in the same location (directory) as FRST: FRST.txt and Addition.txt
      • Leave the log files in the current location, they will be automatically collected by mb-check once you complete the next set of instructions
  • MB-Check
    1. Download MB-Check and save to your desktop
    2. Double-click to run MB-Check and within a few second the command window will open, press "Enter" to accept the EULA then click "OK" 
    3. This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-check-results.zip
      • This file will include the FRST logs generated from the previous set of instructions
      • Attach this file to your forum post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area

One of our experts will be able to assist you shortly.

Reimage is considered a PUP, not malware. You may exclude it from scans if you wish. 

I would stick with @dcollins in your other topic. He can address all of your concerns.

(Wouldn't it be funny if he told me not to veer from the original question and problem and make a new thread.)

It is better for one helper to deal with all of these kinds of issues. He will probably merge topics into one. 

You also made a comment in your first post that instructs me to let STAFF handle your issues. Devin is staff.
