Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

What "recommended" fixes are you referring to?

thanks, I tried this and a few others that didn't work

 

Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.

There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Administrator

You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

  1. Rkill.exe
  2. Rkill.com
  3. Rkill.scr
  4. Rkill.pif

By didn't work do you mean rKill didn't want to run or it didn't fix anything?

What does actually happen when you try to run any of Rkill versions? Only one of them is .exe.

Did you try to run it from safe mode.

Do you "right click and choose Run as Administrator"?

Download FixExec.exe to your desktop.
Double click on downloaded file to run the fix.
When the program has finished, it will generate a log on the desktop called FixExec.exe.
Post the log in your next reply.

NOTE. If for any reason you're not able to execute FixExec.exe rename it to FixExec.com, FixExec.pif or FixExec.scr.
