Hello

Can somebody please please help me. Last week I got a virus called trojay-spy.html.smitfraud.c and after using this site I managed to get rid of it. But now i cannot open any programs at all. They are all still on my computer and have not been deleted but for some reason I keep getting the following message:


QUOTE
Windows cannot find C:/program files\((program name)) make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button and then click search



For every program I try to open this message would come up. To get rid of the virus I used the following tools:
HijackThis
Killbox
Smitfraud.reg
Hoster
Deldomains
Cleanup
Active Scan

I am very bad with computers and I may have done something completely wrong for this to have happened. If anyone can advise me with this I would me very greatful

Yes I did

I must have gone wrong somewhere, but whilst I was in process of completing the instructions everything seemed fine. The very last thing I did was disk cleanup and I think that's when I got this problem. Will be greatful if you have any advice

Thanks
