Cant open most of the applications

Posted on 2008-06-13
Last Modified: 2013-11-22
Example, if I try to run msconfig.exe, sfc /scannow, cmd.exe I get "Open With" screen. This is the case with most of the applications. Most probably PC is infected with something, but I cant start anything to try to find out with what.

Can someone help me with this problem? I know I can reinstall windows easily, but I wold like to work this out without reinstall, if possible.

Do you get an error message related to CMD , registry editing,etc.. being disabled by restrictions, or you get another error ?

Download and run Hijack this from Trendmicro

Post the log here.

Try this and see if you can run exes again:

Start > type in:

and in the prompt, type/paste:

ftype exefile="%1" %*

This will restore exe files again.
then run Hijackthis and show us the logfile to check what infections is present.

Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" please don't fix anything yet.
Please attach the logfile as "Code Snippet".

Can you please run Combofix, we'll clean out your hijackthis log afterwards if the bad entries are still present.

Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

This link tells you How to use Combofix as well as installing RC if you haven't yet.

O2 - BHO: ShoppingReport - {100EB1FD-D03E-47FD-81F3-EE91287F9465} - D:\Program Files\ShoppingReport\Bin\2.0.26\ShoppingReport.dll (file missing)

You should fix your registry in order to fix the files Association.
Here are few of them that you can fix using the scripts/reg keys provided by dougknox

Or you can Try a registry fix tool, Here's a free one.

Before you start fixing the registry, you should use system restore to create a restore point.

Good luck

It's actually a worm agent,,, but i believe the hosts are to redirect your web-browser when you surf the internet to different malware websites.... any sites that would infect your pc by downloading spyware/cookies....etc

As mentioned below in this kb article

###It modifies the system's HOSTS files to prevent users from accessing certain Web sites.

Yes Fix those 01 hosts entries IF still present in Hijackthis.
They're part of the WORM_AGENT.XSB that stopped most programs from opening, same worm as the 04 entry in your first hijackthis log.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [soundmix] D:\WINDOWS\system32\soundmix.exe

D:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\fwkbdrtm.sys <-- also can you check the properties of this driver? could belong to Siemens.

Ok. removed them. fwkbdrtm.sys is a part of WinCC siemens software, and is not a threat. Would that be all?

Thanks for all the help so far.

Hello, moh10ly, why impatient, all the credits will be assigned. I believe I should test the PC if anything else is wrong with it, so it would be kind if you could wait a day or two. I couldn't test the PC last night, since I am not in the office in that hour. The PC has been disconnected from the network until the issue is solved. this I connected it and searching for remaining problems, if there are any.
