It appears, according to Norton Anti-Virus, my laptop is infected by the W32.ramdec virus. Every time I try to open Regedit, or any program for that matter, Windows tries to find a program to open it i.e. it is treating executables as files and doesn't know what to do with them. The only program that works is Explorer.exe (through My Computer)
Help I don't know how to rid myself of this worm
Thanks in advance,
p.s. also, I can't access any control panel features. "Access to specified device, path, or file is denied."
