Go Start > Run and type "regedit"

Then go File > Import and import the FixNCR.reg file.

I'll try it. This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create and association in the folder options control panel. I tried what I thought was right there but it did not work.
Thanks

I am so indebted to you for this fix. I was able to download it in safemode and restored my computer to usability. I am very grateful.

What happens if you skip the FixNCR.reg step and go to the next section of the instructions, which is to run rkill. Are you able to run rkill?

Thanks. Talk to you in a few

Boot the PC into safemode with networking

Right click on installer

Select Run as

Uncheck protect my computer and data against unauthorized activity


Click ok

Install,update and scan with malwarebytes

Good luck

You dont need fixncr and rkill as you have started running mbam in safemode.

Reboot to normal mode and run a scan again.Sometimes you may not be able to launch any applications in normal mode.In those cases

download

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileassoc/xp_exe_fix.zip

Extract and launch the registry file.

Launch malwarebytes and run a scan

Good luck

You are right. I can't open anything. Can't run the malware scan- don't know what program to open it with. How do I download your dougknox link when I can't get a browser?
