My 2003 server has prblms running windows exes. It get the error "extraction failed"
My system in general has been lagging. taskmgr is taking about 100mb and it doesn't have a user assigned. I see this through the taskmgr process list and I mention it because I don't think that's normal.
I'm currently running the may 09 windows maliscious malware removal tool. i downloaded that exe from the site, ran it from another server, shared the folder in which the exe extracted the apps. Then ran the apps from this server in question.
At first I got an error saying winhttp.dll not found.
I have run the scannow fxn from the run prompt, and it seemed to have scanned my windows files and compared them to my install disk. However, i don't think it fixed my system file problems. Not sure if my prblms are due to the registry or not... does the scannow fxn fix registry entries too??
after I copied a winhttp.dll to the system32 folder, I did a regsvr32 winhttp.dll and got it in the registry, THEN I was able to run the maliscious malware scan app. Server is still scanning, but so far nothing found.
This is not the 1st msg i get regarding missing or non registered dll's.This is probably the 3rd dll. i ran searches of these dll's on the system and did find them, So my system errors are probably due to registry prblms..I suspect something has modified my registry...
Please advise.. I think running the SP2, from the individual msi application might work, reregistering updated dll's and windows fixes.
My server lags, but it's still functional.. The lag is ABNORMAL.. so I hope SP2 helps resolve this issue. Any comment's are appreciated, thanks.
are there any 2003 server prgms I can run to analyze, scan my registry for inconsistencies? I don't want to restart this server, last time I restarted, the thing took 3 hrs to load the explorer.. It's lagging big time.. so I'm avoiding restart at all costs, until at least I have a solid plan.
the extraction failed error was a question here on experts before, but found no resolution. I wonder what is causing this.. a virus?
