|I finally solved the issue. Sure enough the Virus that was on the machine had changed the registry to look for a fake file in all 3 browsers. All 3 browsers have an execution value in the registry. You will find all 3 in the same place. Below is the location for all 3, but what i have pasted below is from this computer so it only shows the location of Internet Explorer. There should only be 2 reg keys in each browser folder, one saying (Default) and the value should be (value not set), and the second is ExecuteOptions and the value is 0x00000001 (1). Anything else just delete.|
These Keys are located at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplore.exe (this is for Explorer the rest will be here too)
Hope this helps.
