I have been trying to remove a malware identified by SAS as a broken association infection. Any .exe application will not run after reboot. Even after the problem is removed by SAS. I use an application called exefix_xp.com to be able to run my executables and attempt removal. Please help! I must be overlooking something. Could I be dealing with a MBR Infection?
Thanks in advance
