Have a Windows XP Home Computer

It has the General Virus on it.

I cannot get into registry or launch any programs.

Says that either the path no longer exists or I do not have permissions.

How do I get permissions back and launch my programs to clean it.

This registry entry that I attached reassociates and fixes exe errors after clearning a virus....I have had this happened to me a few times.  Download it, extract it and double click the extracted file.
