I deleted that game, My son downloaded it from somewhere on the net, it being a cracked game if that terminology is correct may very well be why he never could get it to play...
Is there some way to find out where he downloaded it? I will surely report it to who ever handles such cases...Whats even worse is we payed for the download, and I eventually had to go to my bank and put a stop to them charging my account...I think the site was called hitech creations something or other . It really makes me mad that these cyber crooks use a kids game to hack a computer

Hi Chris, I tried to install the fixit but I got this error meassage
an unexpected error occured.Setup cannot continue.Please exit and try again.
Error.no connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.127.0.1:5555.
whatever that means lol,
I did go and look at a new computer today and Im not sure what the guy was telling me but it had 8gig memory and a 1 tera hard drive witha quad core processor, not sure what all that is either but apparently the mfg thought pretty highly of it and had a pretty high price tag,
Maybe I could just wipe this one clean and start over lol

Hi,

Please download ComboFix from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Rename ComboFix.exe to commy.exe before you save it to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Click Start then copy paste the following command into the search box & hit enter: "%userprofile%desktopcommy.exe" /stepdel
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. This will not install in Vista. Just continue scanning, and skip the console install.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

hi Ronnie,

If you want to start fresh, you can just reformat (which is free) or purchase a new pc. Up to you Smile

Hi Ronnie,

Do you have access to the CD's that came with your PC?

In reformatting you wipe the drive clean with those CD's and start fresh with a new Operating System, just like the day you bought it.

You will lose all your programs and files but, you can back your files up to a flash drive or CD's before the reformat to ensure you can put them back on when you're ready to do so.

I don't recommend backing up any executable files for programs. They can always be reinstalled later.

If you let me know what you plan to do: continue with the disinfection or reformat I can direct you to the proper forum so you can get help from our other Staff and members. Currently, only pre-approved users can respond to this topic.
