I have just used spyware doctor to remove "Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen"
it found and removed it!!!
...But now my problem is that every file (.exe program) Tht i try to open, asks me to select the program from the list or use the internet to search for the the extension!!
I think when i removed the trojan, that it did something with the registry so im guessing that could be the problem.
I havnt done anything else because I know ill proberbly mess things up!

Any solutions on how to get eveyr program to open itself without asking?

this has to be the fastest fix ive ever done byself ever.....

To fix this I searched up in google and came across this website:

thats related to my issue, and someone commented this:

Here’s what worked for me – I pasted this text onto the notepad application:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


“Content Type”=”application/x-msdownload”

Then I saved it to my desktop naming it fix.reg

I then opened up the newly made .reg file and clicked yes when prompted whether or not I wanted to update my registry with the newly modified information.

I then restarted my computer and installed Malwarebytes anti-malware and did the update as well. Once installed, I ran a quick scan which found 11 viruses which I then subsequently removed.

What the above .reg file did was neutralize the virus’ crippling effect of preventing me from installing or even using Malewarebytes or any other anti-virus program which I had running at the time (Avira).
Once restarted and sufficiently neutralized, the virus was powerless against Malwarebytes.

Problem solved. Done and done.

So baisically the reg he made worked for me too!!!

Hey I am having problems with the "Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen" on my laptop...do you know how to fix it manually?

I can help with your exe problem

Open my computer. Click on Tools/Folder Options. If you have Vista or Win7 you will have to push Alt for the File Menu to come up.

Click on the "file types" tab

Click "new"

Enter exe for the file extension

Click the Advacned tab and it will drop down "Associated file type"
In that drop down menu select "Application"

Click OK and that should do it

I'm glad the two of you were able to resolve your computer issues. However, please note that EVERY malware infection is different as is every computer set up. What will fix the problems on one computer, could cause serious problems on another.
