Whenever I try to click on something on my desktop or start menu, all I get is:


C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\(item that i clicked on).exe

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this
action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel.



In order for things to run I have been having to Right Click, Then Run As: and run it under my account name.
Any solutions?

Try EXE File Association Fix: http://www.dougknox..../file_assoc.htm

Thank You so much!
1 more thing though,
Whenever I start my computer this pops up:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\awvtr.exe
Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\awvtr.exe'. Make sure you
typed the name correctly, then try again. To search for a file, click the
Start button, and then click Search.


Is there anyway to get rid of that? and is it necessary?

I'm glad, it worked for you :)

It looks like your computer is infected...
awvtr.exe - part of fraudulent security program

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
