Hi there,

Unluckily I haven't found an answer for this yet:

I cant open files, programs or my browsers on my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop. Pretty much nothing responds. Probably a virus right? But I cant install any virus removal tool now.

I tried a restore point, in Safe Mode, but didnt work (i actually only had one from yesterday, when the virus was already there I think). Also tried restoring file type associations; no luck.

I'm here by using another laptop, please help!

From the 'clean' computer, download one of these bootable Anti-virus rescue CD's. Scan the infected computer, using the CD.
