Is there anything else we need to do or undo?
No, that's about it.
I click to go to August and it won't let me. Did all my previous restore points get deleted in my System Tools?
That happens when ComboFix is uninstalled. The reason why we do that is because malware can hide in System Restore and by doing a SR, you're infecting your computer all over again.
Finally, Wednesday morning I tried Game House again and couldn't get into it still, but in the afternoon after I had installed Spyware Blaster, Spybot and something else Game House would come up. Now this morning, I can't access it again.
Something is blocking it but I don't really know what.

Hi Dave,

I don't have an unzipping program. My Winzip trial expired. Is there a free unzipping program?

Thanks

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the 7-Zip program.
I opened HostX and when I clicked on the Restore MS host files I came up with the following error:

Cannot creat file C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts

Can you please check with your ISP(internet service provider) and ask them if Gamehouse.com is being blocked by them?

Hi Dave,

I just checked with them and tech support said "Absolutely not. Century Link does not block any web sites". Then she said that I should check my computer for any blocks and to see if I need to clear anything out, etc.

That HostX program that comes up with that error, that seems to me that it is and important thing. Is there a way to fix that?

Thank you

Sorry for being so late in getting back to you. It's quite possible that you have been banned from Gamehouse. You should contact them about this.

The above is from my Sept. 6th post.

I'll check with them, but I've heard they have some kind of virus...I will check though.

Please try this:

Please download the following batch file and save it to your desktop: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

When the file has finished downloading, double-click on the HostsPerm.bat file that is now on your desktop. If Windows asks if you if you are sure you want to run it, please allow it to run. Once it starts you will see a small black window that opens and then quickly goes away. This is normal and is nothing to be worried about.

Reset Hosts File:

* Go to Start > Run and type Notepad.exe then click OK
* Copy and Paste everything from the Code Box below into Notepad:
Code:
@Echo off
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1  localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
del %0

* Go to File > Save As
* Save File name as Reset.bat
* Change Save as Type to All Files and save the file to your desktop.

On the desktop double click the Reset.bat to run the batch file. It will self-delete when completed.

•Unzip HostXpert to your Desktop

•Open up the HostXpert program.

•Make sure that the "Make Hosts Writable?" button in the upper right corner is enabled.

•Click Create Back Up

•Then click on Restore Microsoft's Host Files

•Close the HostXpert program

Note: if you use SpywareBlaster, Spybot and/or IE-SPYAD, it will be necessary to re-install the protection they afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and select Enable all protection. For Spybot run the program and select Immunize. For IE-SPYAD, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.

Hi Dave,

I'm still getting the following error when I click on Restore Microsoft's Host Files.

Cannot creat file C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts.

Let me know what I should do.

Thanks

Are you sure that you're doing this?
Make sure that the "Make Hosts Writable?" button in the upper right corner is enabled

Hi Dave,

Yes, I'm sure.

This is what I see...

It's a big box that's white and it has a left hand column.

The titles in the column are:

File Handling (to the right of that is a picture of a pencil)

"Make Read only?" and it shows an unlocked lock (because it's writeable)
"Make Writeable?" and it shows a locked lock (so I can't write)

Backup/Restore

Import Options

Restore MS Hosts Files

File Handling

Editing

Download

Tools

Help

I've tried it both ways (I've always done it with the lock unlocked). When it's locked I can't create a backup.

So, with the lock unlocked I'm able to click on the Backup/Restore button and create a backup. Then it confirms that did happen.

Then I go to Restore MS Hosts File and it asks if I want to do this I click on OK and then the error appears.

I believe I'm doing it correctly, but if I'm not, please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks

Hi Dave,

I went to the link and clicked on the icon so it would make the changes automatically.

What should I do now?

Thanks

Hi Dave,

I'm sorry, I didn't explain myself properly. I already did this when I click on the icon. I did run the fix it program.

Is there something else I need to do to check it...or do I need to run any reports for you?

Thanks

Sorry. I've never run this program before. Could you describe to me what happens after you let it run?

Hi Dave,

I'm sorry I hadn't been on sooner, I've been ill.

Anyway, I just clicked on the icon for it to run. It did run and that was it. That's why I was wondering if there was some way I should check it or something.

Thanks

That should have reset your hosts file. It's been so long. Do you have any more problems with your computer?

Hi Dave,

Just little things that weren't there before, so other than those, nothing else.

That's good. Just do the cleanup I suggested earlier in this thread and you're good to go.
