I got the virus on Facebook and the file was called "ypg.exe".
It gave administrator prompts until I prompted yes.
I can't open any internet browsers and was lucky to reach someone to help me. I have Windows 7 Professional.
When I try to start up anything, it just starts the ypg.exe process and starts "scanning". I had a security alert that said something along the lines of "Threat detected!"
Another user in the Windows 7 section told you guys about the virus but nobody posted about it...
I don't have a separate computer so I can't download anything.

Sorry for the bump but I can't edit posts. I got rid of the virus with a whopping 23 viruses, most of which were from Clickpotatolite, an infection I got last year. I can't open .exe files without having to choose a program to open up the programs I want to use. When I try to run regedit via run, I get this message: "Regedit.exe not found." I downloaded a .reg file in the removal article, which I unfortunately found after scanning with MBAM. I couldn't find the log, either. I right clicked the file and selected 'Merge' and apparently, regedit was already being used by another process. I was the only user on at the time. I got on an account that wasn't infected and it worked as if there were no malware present, which is how I'm on here now.

Hello. the MBAM log fike is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

For the " choose a program to open up "
Go to File association fixes for Windows Vista{works in WIN7 also}

Click the exe box
To fix the association for a particular file type, download the corresponding fix from the above links table (Use Right-click - Save as option in your browser to download the fixes). Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the Desktop. Right-click the REG file and choose Merge. Note that you need to be an administrator to apply these fixes.

Thanks, but I get a registry error (Regedit.exe not found) when I try to open it up. When I try to use the registry in the infected side with the .reg file, I get an error that it's open in another program. I am the only one logged on and registry-related processes were closed. What's causing it? I'll try your solution over the weekend.

1. Open the task manager (if possible) control+alt+delete
2. Click the processes tab
3. Find YPG.exe and right click
4. Select "folder location"
5. Delete the file of files and empty the recycle bin
6. Reboot and look at the task manager again. It should not be there now.
7. You will most likely need to run .exe and attributes fixes to regain full operation.
