This is a virus.. an executable virus.. I hate this one

Basically what this virus does is it messes with your registry entries to make sure none of your programs open/or open with just one program, I wrote something like this several years ago.

From another computer, download Spybot - Search and Destroy and run it on the computer that has the issue.

The results of that will tell me what to do next :)

You can run the EXE fix:


Scroll down to the blue box (ignore the 'DOWNLOAD NOW' crap) and click on the EXE box. Be sure to read the instructions as you'll probably have to use the MERGE option.

Fixing the exe file association should allow you to run most programs. If you have additional problems with other file types you can download and run whatever other fixes you need.
