Virsus made it files don't know what to open with
Posted on 2011-03-15
I got the evil XP Home Security virus on my PC. After a day and a half of trying to remove it, I think I finally did. I may have disabled a process or two that I shouldn't have in the process, but I don't think so. I did run a virus scan and removed a bunch of threats.
The virus seems to be dead now, but now every time I click any file or app, it asks me to "choose to the program you want to use to open the file". This is very problematic because I can't even seem to get to my remote desktop now, or even run msconfig from the Run prompt.
Any idea where the problem may be here? Also, is there another way to run msconfig? I don't know what program to choose to run it. Thanks
