Good Morning,

I follow as many of the instructions on the guide to removing XP Home Security 2011 as I could. I am able to boot up in safe mode with networking and I can download files, but when I go to run them, I get stuck on any .exe file with a window that says "Select a prgram to run this file with"

I have Malware bytes, but cannot run it and my Avast anti virus doesnt see the files from this bug.

I couldnt run the GMER tool, but i attached my DDS files

Any advice would be appreciated.

DDS Log:

I seem to have fixed it with a .exe fixer file: xp_exe_fix.reg

After that I was able to run malwarebytes and got rid of the bad registry entries.

I'm good for now.
