Mmc.exe Microsoft Management Console Won't Open

» I have a question about mmc.exe error message: mmc, can't make a empty file, also while opening, services.msc and Device manager it says the same thing. Any help would be appreciated?

» You have been infected by the virus/Trojan like Trojan:Win32/Koutodoor.E.dll.

While having an antivirus suite running in the background of your computer will help filter out most threats, not everything can be caught this way. What's more, it is far from enough just to clean away the malware. You must run a deep scan of your computer to repair the damaged system files and restore your computer. Just because of that the Anti-malware programs would inevitably remove or quarantine the infected system file, which could have adverse side effects on the operation of the system. And mostly, this is about the repair of dll files. Therefore, I would like to recommend DLL Suite as a more do-it-yourself approach. its Fix EXE Virus feature can be used to remove the .exe file virus infection effectively.

Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems are fixed automatically.

  1. ADINA BELL replied on January 17, 2013: » I would recommend a repair install of Windows Vista. If your DVD does not include service pack 1 but you have it loaded on your computer, we will need to remove that first. Click on Start, Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features, then View Installed Updates (to the left). Find SP1 in the list and remove it (only if it's not included on your DVD).

    The "repair" (in-place upgrade) install will not effect your installed programs or data (Please back up your data in case of an error though). Just make sure you are already logged into your computer when you start the install. Do not boot from the Windows Vista DVD. If the installation does not start automatically when you insert the DVD, run setup.exe from your DVD drive.

    > When the Setup program starts and the Install now screen appears, click Install now.

    >Note When you receive with the Get important updates for installation message, click Go Online.

    > Click Upgrade when the Which type of installation do you want? screen appear

    >At the moment Windows Vista works(Normal things), accept mmc.exe....Isn't it possible to download another mmc.exe and just copy it?Because im not waiting for a complete install of windows...

You can run the Check Disk program by going to Start, type "cmd" in the search box, right click the Command Prompt application and choose Run as Administrator. In the Command Prompt window, type "chkdsk" and press enter. .

  4. RONALD GREENWOOD replied on January 18, 2013: » it could be possible that one of those files is corrupted. But without the SFC scan working to repair or replace them, and the repair installation not working, then as Brent said it looks like your best option at this point would be a clean installation of Windows Vista if you really need this issue to be resolved. We hate to have to resort to that, but we are left with little options based off of the information and failed solutions that we have gone through so far.

    >If the drive is full, clear some space. If the TEMP environment variable does not exist, or points to a folder that does not exist, use the following steps to set the variable to a valid folder:

    >1. Click Start. Point to Settings, then click Control Panel.2. Double-click the System icon in Control Panel.3. Click the Environment tab in the System Properties dialog box.4. In the Variable edit field, type TEMP.5. In the Value edit field, type the folder name that will receive temporary files. For example, C:\TEMP (if the TEMP folder exists on drive C).6. Click OK.
