AAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stupid Regcleaner did this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't even remember its name,
No i did not click blindly on an internet ad,

I think it was either CCleaner or something.

But yeah,

50-75% of my programs are down because of this damn Error!!!
I looked in System 32 folder and there is a NTDSAPI.dll
whether or not it is corrupted or clean remains to be seen.

I googled this and they all point to these windows repair tools
which are specialized scams you have to pay for.

I need the help of the community.

Hear me People!

p.s.

running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Asalamualaykum :)  hey there akhi!

there's one thing i have to say, if you're not interested in involving yourself with the scam artists...you can try the fresh install route.

If you have the win7 x 64 install disk then here's what you can do.

these guys are good, coupled together with Tom's members onthe win7 section, you can get Bill Gates to do a dance for you :p  - okay that was blown outa proportion.

hope these help

Have you not tried going into a command prompt as an administrator and run the command sfc /scannow ? this should fix any problems with any system DLL.

"Verification 100% Complete
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.log

The system file repair changes will take effect after next reboot."

I've ran this twice now.
Don't think I haven't done this,
I ran it before i posted this and it said the same thing,
I rebooted before and still the error is persistant.

Gosh I guess clean install is the only route... :/ 

I don't like Windows 7 compared to XP where you could repair install through windows setup. Its slightly different.

Hello Akhi numero 2.

Thanks for the tip,
I did think with the combination of some of these guys on here that something similar could be achieved,
but what you said really did blow the limits,

* don't double post, if possible edit your post's and include what you were going to say. Unless you are desperate and wan't a prompt reply from members subscribed to the thread...

if you've tried the above methods, then yeah fresh install is the way to go.

** anyone else reading this thread, in the event of most corruption, a fresh install is usually the best way to get that bubble gum out of your hair.

i can't stress enough on the usually part :)  - it should not be understood as always.

CCleaner would not do this not the real one there is a fake one out there , chances are you got infected by a rootkit or virus sometimes they patch a system file and wedge a rootkit or trojan into it.

Easiest fix is to disable any anti-virus you have and download and run combofix

After this download malwarebytes

download and run tdsskiller to make sure nothing is left
What anti-virus are you using?.

Make sure adobe flash,reader,and java is up to date.
Better yet download secuina psi it will fix all your out of date software vulnerabilites.

Waz, I seriously doubt that Regclean did this.
Nor would CCleaner.
Bush did it!

Hello Guys.

Thank you for the suggestions.

Unfortunately,
Because the hard drive which was faulty to begin with as well as that error
it is now being put through for RMA procedure.

In doing so I disconnected the hard drive before I tried the suggestion.

So we will never know!!! O_O

It's really hard to decide on the best answer.

Between techguy911 and Lutfij.

Also the damn button has disappeared on me again!

I picked this idea up from a pal here on Tom's - goes by the name Jaquith. He mentioned this -
Quote:
...5. REFORMAT and RE-INSTALL ; I don't screw around with Windows - if it's giving me issues - poof it's gone. TOO MUCH TIME IS WASTED FIXING WINDOWS!
from this thread

but it seems a fresh install is what you'll end up doing. Another thing to note and probably a lesson you've learnt by now - get a GOOD anti-virus. I hear Vipre's solution is the best out there!

though a google search for the best Anti-virus would be a good start - maybe start a thread to get feedback from pals here on Tom's...?
