Hi,
I am very frustrated with my computer right now! I turned on my computer this morning to find that most of my programs are missing the .exe files, so I am unable to run most of my programs. I have tried to download a few programs to help me out, but when I download them, they are also missing the .exe file, so will not open. Open is not even an option on the menu when you right-click the icon. I have been having numerous problems with a trojan horse and a few viruses, but thought I had fixed all the problems. Help please!

Hi slinkycat, wleocme to Geeks to Go! <_<

If you're able to access the Internet, run a free online virus scan here:

And a free trojan scan here:

Okay, I was able to go to housecall and do a virus scan, and deleted all the viruses that were on my computer. I went to moosoft, and tried to download the program but I can't open it once it is downloaded. All the files on my desktop and my programs in my computer are still missing the .exe files. Should I format my hard drive and start over? Thanks.

A repair installation should work, and still retain all your data and settings:
