virus that pops an "opens with" box for everything

Post by mimom1 on Wed Jul 29, 2009 1:53 am

I am running xp sp 2 and every thing I try to open I get a box that pops up and asks me what program I want to use. I cannot access my avg, malware, control panel etc.. I have tried to do this in safe mode, same results, also tried to do a system restore but it won't let me open even in safe mode. I can access the web and tried to down load hijackthis to be able to post a log because that seems to be the usual helpful tool that you guys use, but I get the same thing. I have downloaded it but cannot open it. I am not sure which virus this is. I thought maybe this was the system security virus, but I am not sure and I tried looking in my processes and don't see it and did a search but didn't find it. Those seem to be about the only things I can access. Do you have any idea which one it is and how to remove it?

Hello.

Right click on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on select "Save target as..." to save the .reg file.

Save it to your Desktop, then run it. Select yes to the registry merge prompt.
See if you can run files now.

Hello.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
