So I had a quick question. I downloaded rkill.exe to my non-infected laptop to use on another computer that I was trying to remove some malware. Before burning a CD I thought I'd try using rkill on my own computer to see what it was like (I guess a bad idea?). Anyway, after running it I've run into several issues, even after restarting the computer. Every time I try running a shortcut on my desktop I get the error: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel." This error also came up when I tried running the malwarebytes installer, so its not just shortcuts. Strangely, when I click the firefox shortcut I'll get that error, but if I go to start and click on Internet it will open. Also, a couple programs that usually start-up with my computer have stopped, like RightMark CPU Clock Utility (which I use to undervolt my laptop and monitor temps) and I feel like there should be a couple more icons in the lower right, but I can't put my finger on it. Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated! Oh, and here is my rkill.log:
This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
Please post this only if requested to by the person helping you.
Otherwise you can close this log when you wish.
Rkill was run on 02/15/2011 at 0:18:08.
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
Processes terminated by Rkill or while it was running:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugin-container.exe
Rkill completed on 02/15/2011 at 0:18:16.
Edit: Oh, btw the firefox.exe stuff may have been terminated by me. I think I closed it right after I started rkill. I am thinking it either has something to do with those other 2 exes, or the with the registry file that gets imported
