Hi:
Six entries in my registry report a file extension invalid.
The entry in the registry is:
HKEY_C_U\Software\microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\XX\OpenWithList

XX=.bak,.dat,.loc,.pf,.psd,.sqm

There are six errors, I put XX because that is the only thing that changes in the registry commands.

I was going to delete the file, but I think this command must be useful to open some kind of files.

No idea how to handle these registry errors, already messed up once fixing and erasing the wrong commands,
Please Help.

pc was working farily ok eventhough those errors and manually fixed about 50 errors reg mec showed..

Couple hours ago put in a cd ran norton, showed indected with nimda.

Took out the cd.

Ran ad aware, norton, spyware blaster, spybot, defender....none detect anything.

but I am sure it has to be infected.....it takes 122 seconds to load messenger...and browsing is way
too slow.

computers are on a network, now all computers are browsing too slow on the web....

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
