RR Install issue

Hello.

Am trying RRFree on a Vista Ult 32 system after reading (UK) PCPro mag this month.

The reason for trying it is to try and see whether there are any nasties causing my the System Idle process issue on my system. System Idle process (SIP) is taking upwards of 100% of my processor time, causing all other programs to run very sluggishly, with lots of 'not responding' messages.

(I'm told, and read elsewhere that SIP is supposed to run on the processor making up 100% of processor time, over other programmes. However, I don't think SIP should not do that at the expense of the processor time for other programmes.

I have tried other nasties removal programmes which come up blank.

Thought I'd try RR Free today to see if it identifies anything.

Anyway, my issue with RRF this morning is, after installing, when I try to run RRF I get an error message, 339, saying 'COMCTL32.OCX, or one of it's dependencies is not correctly registered; a file is missing or invalid.' RRF then does not start.

I have moved the COMCTL32.OCX in the RRF folder away and copied the system32 one into the RRF folder. (I know, but it was worth a try).

Many thanks ahead of any assistance given.

Apologies for typos in my first post....

This sentence should read as follows:

Any assistance on the RRF start issue greatly appreciated

System Idle Process isn't a process that's actually "using" any cpu. It is actually just a description of how much of your CPU is NOT being used (idle). If your system is performing sluggishly it certainly could be caused by malware, but to have system idle process using most of your cpu is normal. I would recommend that you try installing Malwarebyte's Antimalware instead or RogueRemover, as RogueRemover is all but discontinued and hasn't been updated in a very long time and will not be updated anymore. Malwarebytes' Antimalware is updated very frequently and targets rogue software as well as trojans, rootkits, keyloggers and spyware so it has a much higher chance of finding malware on your system than RogueRemover if there is any. To run Malwarebytes', just download it from malwarebytes.org or majorgeeks.com and install it, then run the program and click on the update tab and once there click on the button that says Check for Updates. Once the update is complete, click on the tab that says scanner and run a quick scan. If it finds any infections, have it remove them. A reboot will probably be necessary to finish removing infections. After the reboot see if your PC is running better, if not then I would recommend posting here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=7 follow all the instructions given in the stickied threads at the top and one of the experts here will help you analyze your system and make sure it's clean and if it's not, they will instruct you on what to do to get it cleaned up. Be sure to follow their directions precisely and don't run any tools, fixes or scans on your own without their specific instructions as this can actually make their jobs more difficult. Good luck and I hope you get everything sorted out.

p.s.: just saw your last post and I'm glad MBAM helped, however I would still recommend posting in the Malwarebytes Hijack this forum so one of the experts can make sure that you are totally clean.

Exile360, thank you for your reply.

following the reboot, the SIP issue is still there. :blink:

Am moving across to the other forum you have kindly suggested.

Many thanks
