After running the Kaspersky scan in safe mode I've not been able to bring up any programs other than Mozilla Firefox from the Start menu. The scan found no traces of any virus but I am now unable to bring up any other programs from either the Desktop, Start Menu or All Programs. I am able to download programs but I am unable to run them as I receive the same pop up each time. Prior to scan I had no problems bringing up any of the programs.
After a couple of reboots in Normal Mode I continue to receive the following Windows pop up each time I attempt to bring up any program C:\Windows\system32\ (name of program).exe: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel
I'm thinking I may have brought computer out of Safe Mode incorrectly if there is such as thing. All I did was reboot computer in Normal Mode after scan. I've not attempted to do anything else to correct this.
Here is the link to my original post on the Malware Removal Forum to show what Spysentinel & myself were working on originally: http://www.geekstogo...-....html&st=15
I currently have an old Dell 4500 w/ Windows XP Home Edition, Pentium 4 3.0Ghz, 1Gig of memory along with one internal & one external hard drive.
Thank You & I look forward to any help!
