My friends computer had a virus and he moved it to vault?? Now all his files under my documents and his user are in .js format and they will not change. I have ran malewarebytes, tdsskiller,and aswMBR with no infections. I am now running combofix which deleated some files.I have tried to open the files which should be jpeg and word with the program but it cannot open .js. I did a system restore before problem, to no avail . There is no information on the internet about this. Any suggestions.

I also found out the virus hid files with certain extentions. First I have to unhide the files then work on the java script format.

Thank you for the advise. I ran unhide and the program revealed many files that were hidden. Now the task of the .js format.

Thanks for the advice. Everything is back to normal except there are all sorts of file with diffrent extensions showing. It looks loke the virus made files for diffrent extentions or whatever!! Thanks Bleeping Computers you saved the day again.

These are fixes that will repair file associations:
CAUTION: Some of these steps involve making changes in the Windows registry. Always Create a New Restore Point and back up your registry before making any changes. Vista/Windows 7 users can refer to these instructions. If you're not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT or ERUNTgui is an excellent free tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Note: ERUNT and NTREGOPT will only work correctly in Windows 7 and Vista if you turn off User Account Control (UAC) in Windows Control Panel.
