My first post,

I deleted police pro, svchast and anything in C:windows/system32 that had downloaded on the date we caught the virus. I probably should have followed the steps found on this site instead, but too late, I had taken advice from others. Now anytime I try to open a program or do a system restore, it asks me which program I would like to open with. I've visited http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ and cleaned an additional 6 threats from the system. I don't have any XP discs, as Sony doesnt' ship them with the system, and when I try to create a recovery disc i get an error. C:windows/system32/rundll.exe application not found. yet it seems to be in that location. I click open, it asks OPEN WITH? any help would be appreciated. Randy

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

EXE (lnk and regfile) Fix for Windows XP - #12 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.
