Hello, first of all, we need to restore your default file associations for exe's.
I assume you are having XP? If not, please let me know.
If you are having XP, download this registryfix:http://www.dougknox..../xp_exe_fix.zip
Unzip it and doubleclick xp_exe_fix.reg
Click yes when it asks you to merge to the registry.
Download the latest version of Ad-Aware:http://www.lavasoft....pport/download/
After installing AAW, and before running the program.
Please be sure to update the reference file following the instructions here:http://www.lavahelp.net/howto/updref/
Now we need and use an extra plugin for Adaware Se to clean up your system.How to use the VX2Cleaner plugin for Adaware:
*Close Ad-Aware if it is open.
*Download the vx2cleaner.zip
*Extract the files in the archive to your Lavasoft Ad-Aware plugin-folder (standard in your C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Adaware SE\Plugins)
Read here how to unzip/extract properly:http://metallica.gee...xplanation.html
*Click "Yes to all" when asked if you want to replace the files.
*Reopen Ad-Aware and click the Add-ons button in the main window.
* Select "VX2 Cleaner" from the list.
* Click the "Run Tool" button in the lower right corner of the window.
* Click "OK" when asked if you want to execute this tool. Reboot
Open Adaware SE again after reboot:
Click scan and choose Smartscan
Run the Ad-Aware scan and allow it to remove everything it finds and then REBOOT to allow it to finish.
