What exactly does the above mean? Did you extract the .reg file? Did you try the directions on the Doug Knox site?
NOTE: If your EXE file associations are corrupted, it can be difficult to open REGEDIT, or to even import REG files. To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter.
If you can open regedit, click on File then Import, point to the .reg file you extracted.
You should also get the EXE file association fix from the Doug Knox site since it sounds like EXEs are not working for you either.

are the .EXE files software you installed your self
or are these windows files
if these are software .EXE files can you reinstall them
by way of down from internet or cd
good luck with the malware forum they do have the good fixes

The .exe files are system files I am afraid. You can see them in the AVG report I uploaded in my first post. Yeah I hope they will be able to sort my problem out! If not, worse comes to worse I´ll have to back up my files and re-install the windows again
Anyway, thanks for all the help
All the best

I don't understand why merging the Drive and EXE fixes into the registry did not fix your problem though. Once you are cleared by Landlord in the malware forum, please come back here so we can have another whack at this before you reinstall.

It seems the problem is solved since I followed Landlord´s instructions! Now I can access the drivers like the usual, just waiting for his reply to confirm everything is OK - thanx a lot anyway for all your help!
