Post by hawkeye1940 on 19th April 2010, 1:41 am

Every shortcut or if I go into the folder of the shortcut I get the following msg.
windows cannot access specified device,path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. If I download a program to help me lick this problems I get the same error msg.

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.
  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe.
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted.
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.

As I said in my original note, I cannot run downloaded programs.
windows cannot access specified device,path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. None of my desktop icons will run get the same msg as above.

See if you can run this, I've faced and beaten this error before.

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    Code:

    :filefind
    scecli.dll
    netlogon.dll
    eventlog.dll
    cngaudit.dll

  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

Can you download programs from another machine and transfer them via USB?

Ive downloaded with another computer and burned it to a CD. But when I put it in the infected comp. Click on the icon get same error msg. So I think if I use USB it will tell me the same error. Dell wants 129 dollars say they can fix it. I can get a 1 Terabyte WD drive for $99. Im trashing the drive tomorrow if I dont get any workable solutions to my problems....
thanks mate

Well, giving up is your choice.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

I just trashed the drive and bought a 1 TB drive. I am now going to get the programs you suggested so I will have them.
I really appreciate all your help. Thanks again
