I was using avg and it reported a conhost virus? It then took steps to remove it, afterward my utorrent would no longer open and stay open. It'd start and then disappear/close out. So I tried to reinstall both and now when I try to run any .exe I've downloaded there's an "unspecificed error" occurring. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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.
