My Vegas10 video editor was working until MBAM removed some malware (or was it my wife browsing unsafely?). 

   Clicking on Vegas shortcut gets an hour glass for a second or two  but nothing more.  Clicking on exe itself gets same.  Doing R-click and OPEN gets the same.   I ran the reg edit to do exefix and no fix.

   I uninstalled Vegas 10 and reinstalled.  Still acts the same.   All other programs including Vegas 8 and Vegas 9 work fine.


MBAM finds nothing.  However,  I noticed that I can no longer safe boot.  Weird.

Hi -
First can you please copy and paste the Malwarebytes log that found the infection -
Just open Malwarebytes, and click on Logs and select the date, then click OPEN for the Log -


I entered Vegas10 video editor in the Search Line on this Sony page, and got a lot of information.

Without knowing all the details of the exact version and download, it is a bit hard to give a decent reply.


Thank You -

SOLUTION found:  I uninstalled and then searched through the registry and removed (deleted) all references to vegas100.exe  and vegas 10.0.  There were a lot!  I don't know which ones did the trick but I rebooted and reinstalled Vegas 10 and now it works.


During the reg scan I found no weird entries, like pointing to a non existing directory, and my action did delete any history and settings, but at least it now works.


It may have been easier to use the Microsoft tool that fixes uninstalls that dont uninstall but I only thought of that after I got it to work.
