after a virus(that is gone now thanks to a other topic) a lot of my programs(mostly windows related(cmd nslookup and so on but also winamp and a few others)) have the locked icon on them and i cant start them and i cant seem to find the place where it says that they are supposed to be locked(happened thanks to avg locking all of them) and i was wondering does anyone know of a way to get them unlocked without reinstalling(as its over 100 exe's that are locked) and because i cant access cmd i cant flush my dns so it means that i cant access most of the security related websites and what not

by the way if its a bit hard to read im sorry but English is my 2nd language plus its 3:42am and haven't slept in a day as been trying all kinds of things to get it back to working order

i have been my self for the last few days
http://www.geekstogo...oj-t231840.html

i had that one before and for as far as most of my virus scans could say my pc was clean(wich i knew it wasnt as most of the stuff dint work) and guess il gonna end up reinstalling(if it ever lets me again(dam setup wont let me) thanks to a new one vitro >.>)

but ya that first topic actually helped get rid of that one for me after i ran a few other tools i found around the net

but its like avast and avg seem to lock down the exe's that get infected and because cmd and nslookup and so are locked i cant do the stuff i want to do to get rid of all of it in total(as any command line based scanned that i want to run in save mode wont start as well)

but ya if anyone has a clue how to unlock the exe's that have become locked(thanks to the dam viruses(and get rid off them again(as the stupid dvd wont let me reinstall win 7 or xp and dont feel like wiping 1.5tb of data dating back to 2006)) :)

So, nothing is actually locking the file.
It looks to me like your system files are messed up.

Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista), type in:
sfc /scannow
Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista, most likely, you won't need it).
If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista case).
If sfc won't find any errors in Windows XP, it'll simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".
