Hello,
My son had a virus called windows police pro on his laptop. He thinks it is all gone now but, when he tries to open some of his programs he gets an error message saying the program or file cant open because there is no file association and to go to the control panel under folder options. I dont have a clue what to do now. Could someone explain this to me.

Hello,

I am moving this topic to the Am I Infected forum. Even though your son thinks he got rid of the infection, chances are he hasn't.

Do you have access to his computer?

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal

Hi,


Kindly go to system32 and you will find mspaint.exe (you need to show the extention name)

After that copy it and paste it at your desktop

Rename it as 11.bat

open the file and you will see the mspaint

Click on Help and click on Help Topics

Do a right click on the yellow question mark on the Microsoft Paint Overview

Click on Jump to URL

and put this on the URL

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileassoc/zipfolder_fix.reg

then put the file on the registry

After that do a right click again and click the Jump to URL and

put

That will do no good for Windows Police Pro
Which I'll bet they still have
