I removed a virus now programs wont run

Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
I have Windows 7 and got a vz.exe registry virus. It got right by my avast so I uninstalled avast and installed AVG which removed it, but now I restarted my computer and none of my programs can run. no .exe will work, and instead it acts like it cant recognize it. I can indirectly open some applications like firefox but most .exe files will work. I tried to go to comand prompt and do the registry fix but it cant open regedit.

Oh man, I have the same problem this weekend... anyone know how to fix this? I have to reformat mine.. I would not like to do that next time. You can still open file by right click "run as admin".

I would make sure that you actually removed the virus. however you may have disassociated file extensions.

check out this page and try the .exe fixer


good luck
