my office pc was infected with RUNOUCE.EXE virus & i had used quickheal for repairing infected files !!
during scan it was showing almost all the exe are being scanned & repaired !!

after reboot i was shocked when i double click on an exe file not a single exe file is opening/
even in short cutt or directly frm the installed folder ( even wordpad/excel/autocad/yahoomessenger...every EXE file )
i tried with "exefix_xp.com" to fix extensions in registry ! but it didnt worked in my case.
even i tried system restore & it is showing unable to restore ...
when i tried to uninstall some programs from add or remove it is even not aloowing to uninstall ( as uninstall is also an exe file)
i tried with ccleaner tooo .. same problemmm ..

my regedit is opening & ie explorer is opening !

Hello KHADREE_SHARIFF. Welcome to BC.

Please download this file to your desktop. Right click and select "Extract All". Double click xp_exe_fix.reg and import the data.

If you are not able to do that. Open your Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del). Click File>Run..
regedit.exe /s "%userprofile%\desktop\xp_exe_fix.reg"
If now your .exes will run..

Download and Run DAFT
This tool will find and fix problems with your file extension associations.
  • Download daft.exe by Deckard to your desktop.
  • Double click daft.exe to run it.
  • Click Scan.
  • Put a check mark beside all boxes, unless you specifically know of the program that changed it.
  • Click Fix.
  • Clost out of daft.

With Regards,
The Panda
