You may receive an error message that contains the "0x8DDD0018" code or the
"0x80246008" code when you try to download updates from the Microsoft
Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site:

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

I have Windows 2000 Professional. When I run windows Updates via Dial-Up, I
was able to Install SP4 and IE6. I had pop-up messges that Windows had 55
critical system errors and I shoul go to www.regfixit.com, www.helpfixpc.com
and some other web-site to fix thos problem. I runned WinDoctro from Norton
Utilities 20001 and did not find any errors. Later I was ubable to gat any
further updates, because message "The site cannot continue because one or
more of thes Windows services is not running". I try alll troubleshooting
tips from Windows Update newsgroup and found that both services are running.
I try different tips, but was unable to resove problem. As a last options, I
installed fresh copy of Windows 2000 Professional and started Windows Update.
This time I desided to skip latest updates and went to old Update Web site.
When I runned "Search for Updates", I received programm error message
"lsass.exe has generated error and will be closed by Windows. An error log
being created" with radio button "Cancel". Later I received pop-up Messenger
Service "Message from FROM to TO on 2/1/2008 9:06:59 AM STOP! WINDOWS
REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. Windows has found 55 Critical System Errors. To
fix the errors please do the following:
1. Download Registry Update from www.helpfixpc.com.
2. Install Registry Update.
3.Run Registry Update.
Reboot your computer.
FAILURE TO ACT NOW MAY LEAD TO SYSTEM FAILURE"
I was unable to stop Messenger Service by Wndows Task Manager. When I closed
Messenger Service pop-up window, I had blue screen AKA death.

Any idea or suggestions ?

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

Thanks, but this did not help:
1. Was unable to run Ad-Aware, because newer Installer was necessary.
2. Was unable to run hijacksthis.exe on this computer - it showed license
agreement only and did not move further.
3. Did not find any malicious software with Microsoft Windows Malicious
Removal Tool.
4. No local PC rescue shops available.
5. Still was unable to perform Windows Update and had Program Error
"lsass.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. An error log
being created".

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

Thanks - I know about this option - to reformat hard drive and to reinstall
operational system. I already did this few times.

Anyway, this time I received next message during installing of Windows SP4:

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
c:\tohel.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:050a IP:0283 OP:63
6f 6c 72
Choose 'Close' to terminate the application

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

What anti-virus application is installed on this machine?

What firewall are you using?

I can find exactly two (2) references anywhere to "tohel.exe"...both are
found in very recent threads (i.e., 24 Jan-08; 30 Jan-08) about infected
computers at www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums. This is not a good sign.

You could try rebooting into Safe Mode with Networking, deleting
C:\tohel.exe <=this file*, scanning with HijackThis (save the log), and
posting the log in an appropriate forum (e.g.,
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30). I can assure you that you'll need
assistance from an experienced expert if you're even going to attempt to get
this machine cleaned-up.

I can almost guarantee you that a format & reinstall will be a much more
expediant way of resolving these problems. A Repair Install will NOT help.

Before You Connect a New Computer to the Internet
(After a format & reinstall, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer"]
http://www.cert.org/tech_tips/before_you_plug_in.html

Security FAQ & Checklist
http://www.dslreports.com/faq/8463
====================================

* No guarantees that the file or a similar file won't be recreated when you
reboot. It's a certainty that TOHEL.EXE brought "friends" with it that
"protect" the infected files. There's even a good chance that a large
number of your installed applications are no longer functional and would
need to be reinstalled /if/ you manage to get the machine cleaned-up.

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

I have NAV and dial-up built in firewall.
Yes, it is very serious. Basicly, I am unabel to download Windows Updates
and Norton Antivirus Updates. Also, I have C:\tohel.exe, running sometime at
two different windows at the same time with different behaviour: 1. Blinking
cursor with 1 second period, which changes position every few minutes. 2.
Jumping cursor, which change position few times per second. When I open this
file with Notepad, it is html program with different links. I am unable to
run hijack this to post on forum. I contacted Symantec and informed about
this issue.

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

Again, if you can't do any of the steps I've posted in Safe Mode with
Networking and there are no reputable shops nearby, you MUST format &
reinstall. The machine should NOT be connected to the internet or any
networks, and you should consider your personal data to be compromised.

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

I worked with Symantec and found that C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32 i was infected with
Downloader and C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\svc.exe was infeced with W32.SpyBOt.Worm. I
runned AVG antivirus software and found few more threat :IRC/BAckDoor.Sd.Bot3
trojan, Win32/Crypt.exe virus, SHeur.AMXK trojan. I was able to clean all
this, but still had Programm Error lsass.exe.
I worke dwith Microsoft and applied suggestion to clean temporary folder for
Window Update from possibly corrupted files. This helped and I was able t
odownload Windows Update Servie Pack 4. I am still working with Microsoft and
will update later about situation.

Re: The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows

As I suspected, you've got a Vundo infection, SD-Bot variant infection(s),
and most likely a rootkit infection.

Is your NAV subscription current? You should NOT have two AV apps installed
and loading at boot!
======================
Repost, now that you've got it up & running and can access the internet:

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.
