Exe files will not run

Unread postby vetteman117 » June 15th, 2011, 3:33 pm

My Xp computer drive got infected with a virus when I closed one of those "Your computer is infected..." scams and nothing would work on my Xp drive. So I used Malwarebytes from my windows 7 drive to scan the xp drive. I'm able to see my drive and xp start destop[. I then went into services.msc and enabled the items to obtain some functionality in the xp os. The problem is it will not excute any exe files. It goes to the associate with... popup. It seems my programs and the exe files need to be relinked.
I do not know how to do this...help please.

Unread postby melboy » June 18th, 2011, 9:15 am

Hi and welcome to the MR forums. :)

I'm melboy and I am going to try to help you with your problem. Please take note of the following:

  1. I will be working on your Malware issues this may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
  2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  4. Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc...)
  5. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  6. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  7. DO NOT attach logs unless requested to. Please copy/paste all requested logs into your replies.
  8. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  9. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

NOTE: Please take time to read the Malware Removal Forum Guidelines and Rules where the conditions for receiving help at this forum are explained.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

No Reply Within 3 Days Will Result In Your Topic Being Closed!! If you need more time, please inform me.



When you ran DDS it will have procuced two logs, please copy & paste the contents of :

  • Attach.txt

And post it in your next reply.
