Hello, its derek.

Regedit opens that file.

Hello.

I think you are trying to open a registry file? Please enable your file extensions so we can see what type of file that is.
  • Double-click the My Computer icon.
  • In the explorer window that pops-up, select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • After the new window appears select the View tab.
  • Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled Hide File Extensions for Known File Types.
  • Click the Apply button and then the OK button.
  • Close all the windows.
After extensions are enabled, you should see "FixXPAV.***". Tell us what comes after ".".

Also tell us where it is located so we know what command to use to open it.

With Regards,
The Panda

Regedit opens that file.

Regedit is accessible when going to Start>run>regedit.
This is used when modifying the registry. When you downloaded FixXPAV. the extension was .reg right? so FixXPAV.reg?
Are you getting a message that says: Windows cannot open this file. To open this file windows can go online to look it up automatically.
Make sure that the ending is .reg

Regards,
Extremeboy

If you are going to be making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes!!!

How to backup the Windows XP Registry?

Or you can use ERUNT. ITtallows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Now that you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
Doing so, could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

This topic will now be closed.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.
