Can't Open any Programs or view C: Drive

Recommended Posts

Just a day ago, my computer had a fake "system restore" virus. It hid everything on my desktop and folders and made it so I was unable to open my Task Manager and Regedit. I made a copy of Regedit and renamed it to open that and was able to change it so I could open the Task Manager. After doing this, I was able to kill the processes that prevented me from doing anything so I was able to use my browser to download Malwarebytes and run it. While running Malwarebytes, I found a way to unhide all my hidden files. Malwarebytes found a couple problems and I restarted after having MB fix it.

However, after restarting, I noticed that my desktop was slower when moving icons around. While at first I was able to open programs, I was soon unable to open anything. I tried running the DDS in the instruction thread, but just like all my other programs, I can't run it.

Programs on start up seem to run just fine so I'm still able to run Malwarebytes. I'm currently running it, but I was wondering if there is a way I can get the DDS to run so I can post those logs here.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

  • Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and extract it into a folder on the infected PC.
  • Execute the file TDSSKiller.exe by double-clicking on it.
  • Wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
  • When its work is over, the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection.

By default, the utility outputs runtime log into the system disk root directory (the disk where the operating system is installed, C:\ as a rule).

The log is like UtilityName.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.2.0_20.12.2009_15.31.43_log.txt.

Please post that log here.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, please visit this webpage for instructions for running ComboFix:


  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt along with a new DDS log so we may continue cleaning the system.
