Thanks Somu. Even after almost two years your post is still helping poor souls like me. This problem has been dogging me for a couple of months. Finally needed to do some serious work today and just had to find answers. Been on-line for four hours trying suggestions, and nothing worked ...until now. Great job.

Simply follow the bellow step... ur problem will be solved

Try it.
Click Start, Run. Type command and press Enter. Type notepad and press Enter.
Notepad opens. Copy all the text below into Notepad.


Code: Select all
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Save this as fix.reg to your Desktop (remember to select Save as file type: All files in Notepad.)
Double Click fix.reg and click YES for confirm.
Reboot your computer.

THank YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU <3

I did as instructed and when I double clicked the file fix.reg , notepad popped up.. What is wrong here?

Try to right click on the file and see if there is a Merge option.

Your file has a notepad or .txt extention...
Make the file over again and follow the instructions to a t :thumbsup:


Thanks palanb. However, since I posted that, I have made some other searches and came up with this http://www.dougknox..../file_assoc.htm

I installed the "EXE File Association Fix" and it worked a treat. So no need to do anything else at present.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you for this post. I registered to say the first sollution fix.reg did not work but this one did. I hope other people share what works for them if these two do not. It may depend on specific operating systems or what program caused the problem.
Someone said AVG is the problem, and no offense but please do not talk out of your [bleep]. I don't have AVG but have malwarebytes. It doesn't really matter what program caused it because trojans and virus are sometimes embeded in the registry and can cause problems when removed.

Hi,

My problem started with the ubi.exe virus. While the virus scan seems to have helped clean it up and has stopped the annoying messages that my system was "System HiJack!, once I got rid of that problem, another one popped up in that I could not open many of my applications via mouse click after finding and deleting the ubi.exe file and running the malware scan.

Thank you very much for this thread as it set me down the right path to solve this problem. The link below was the final fix for me as well.

Much appreciated, your help saved me a lot of time.
Thank you Somu, registered to say thanks as well.

troseph I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

My computer has the "XP defender" virus and I can't even get into it to clean it out. I need help desperately. I tried to follow your direction above and repaired my Windows XP but that didn't help. I'm told I am missing my rundll32.exe file and it is nowhere to be found. Should I replace WindowsXP? If I do, will I lose any of the items I have already made?
