I am cleaning up after a infection on my computer and I am currently tiring to fix windows picture and fax viewer. I was told to run this "regsvr32 /i shimgvw.dll" but I can see that shimgvw.dll is still in the win32 folder. He said that "The following command should force a reinstall of WP&FV"


Was this command going to remove the old shimgvw.dll and install it again?

I would also like to note that windows picture and fax viewer opens up and displays "generating preview..." and then closes after two seconds.


Thanks a bunch!

You have an open malware topic at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/501845/expiro-infection-2-removing-residuals/page-3 .  I see nothing that indicates that Nasdaq considers your situation resolved and I request that you pursue that topic to completion...before opening any new topics about this system.


To avoid confusion, this topic is now closed.  Once your malware topic is complete, you can send me a PM and I will reiopen this topic or you can start a new topic re any system issues you experience.
