Windows Police Pro and Security Tool infected my computer. I thought I had removed them with the help of McAfee which I think McAfee deleted my .exe file from system 32. Anyway every time I click a program, try to restore system, cmd or any executable program, I get the message that .... exe is not a valid Win32 application.

I downloaded the Win32Diag file to my desktop but it won't let me execute it: says c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.(my whole name is right here)desktop\Win32KDiag. exe is not a valid Win32 application. I am able to use computer in safe mode with networking. Please help. Isalee714

Thanks. I was hoping to get some help. This virus is a killer. I need my computer to help me with my work. Unfortunately bought it at a jewelry and loan shop and they don't give you diskettes to take home. I don't have money right now to buy virus removal tool and a new Windows XP Program, so I hope someone answers with a solution for you and for me.

Aus Smithy is the one who replied. They just gave a link to try: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...dows-police-pro. However, it does me no good because I can't execute any programs, because of the error message not a valid WIN 32 application. I hope I don't have to reload windows what a headache since I got it used and it was already on there. But I don't know why none of my systems files are working, can't execute edit registry because registry has been turned off by administrator. System restore has been locked - see your domain administrator. It's crazy. But try the link, it may help somebody.

Please download gmer.zip and save to your desktop.
  • Extract (unzip) the file to its own folder such as C:\Gmer. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure.)
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
  • Double-click on gmer.exe to start the program.
  • Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • You may be prompted to scan immediately if GMER detects rootkit activity.
  • If you are prompted to scan your system click "Yes" to begin the scan.
  • If not prompted, click the "Rootkit/Malware" tab.
  • On the right-side, all items to be scanned should be checked by default except for "Show All". Leave that box unchecked.
  • Select all drives that are connected to your system to be scanned.
  • Click the Scan button to begin. (Please be patient as it can take some time to complete)
  • When the scan is finished, click Save to save the scan results to your Desktop.
  • Save the file as gmer.log and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
