[size="5"]Hey there folks this is what had happened yesterday. I have a user on a Fat Client at our shop he got the 2010 Anti-Virus. I was able to take it out by running the Kill.exe and then Malware bytes. There was no need for the Combo Fix, but here's the thing. After the Virus was gone I ran a full check on our computer and everything came back good. So as soon as I went into Excel or any other exe. file it would not allow me to run anything: It would prompt me to choose from a file on the list like notepad, media player.......so on and so on. I looked up some information on it, and what I kept seeing was that the virus or the program that I ran messed up the registery some how. I guess what I need to know is, is this something that can be set back up manually or is a program need to be ran and if a program neeeds to be ran how can I when it won't allow anything to run? Also when this happens is it that same thing in regedit that gets messed up everytime because I've seen this happen 3 times now? Thanks.
