Troubleshooting Virus/Malware issues - Broke validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok, time to fess up. I moved the GUID named files from System32 to another folder in an attempt to fix a pesky malware/virus that lurking in my Vista install. Who knew that those GUID files were MS Validation files and not viruses that load each time vista boots.

    This is a factory loaded Vista Home Premium on an HP Pavilion Media Center m8200n PC. Vista boots, but when I try to log in as a user (any user) I get the "An unauthorized change was made to Windows" (duh!)  error with no start button or desktop. How might I fix this issue?

  • Hello Golsombe,

      On my Vista, the only files with "guid" in the name, in the System32 folder are GuidedHelp.dll and GuidedHelp.mui, are these the files that you moved? Were there others?


      Your Vista is in a Trusted Store Tamper state.  It was caused by either the Malware damaging/modifing parts of Vista or from you moving those Vista system files.


      The first thing you will want to do is, move those files back. You can do that even in reduced functionality mode (i.e. no Start button, no Desktop).  You have access to an Internet Browser. 
      In the Browser's address bar, type: %windir%\system32  This will open a Windows Explorer window. Navigate to were you moved those GUID named files and move them back to their proper folder.  Reboot.

      Hopefully, at this point, your Vista is no longer in Reduced Functionality Mode. 

    If so, I would then suggest that you contact PC Safety (they are a Microsoft Group that provides free assistance with Malware infection) at 1-866-PCSafety or 1-866-727-2338, to help take care of that Virus problem..

    If not, I am not sure what else I can do for you. You have a Malware infection (which can cause non-genuine issue, on their own) and you have moved/missing system files.  You could try contacting Vista support at http://support.microsoft.com and see if they can help you, but since you are using an OEM copy of Vista, the it would most likely be Paided support.

    Your other option would be to reinstall Vista. Just be sure to get all your importent files saved of the computer, before you do.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Darin SM
