Solved Open program with...HELP!

Post by krisliel on Tue Sep 01, 2009 12:46 pm

This is kinda long and alot of questions are posed... hopefully someone can help me Smile

OK, so I was having a problem with opening files on my computer. I woke up one morning and all my icons were highlighted black. When I would click them a black box would pop up and inside it would say "program to big to fit into memory."

So after much researching and trial and error I was able to get that to go away. I ran prompt C:\\windows\system 32. I then found the file desot.exe and deleted it as I was told that was the virus causing all my problems.

The black boxes are gone and I can now access my files... kinda....

Now when I attempt to open a file a new box comes up and says "What program would you like to use to open your file." It gives me choices such as adobe, notebook, etc... I can also browse or find a file from the web....

Anyway I can return my computer to normal running status? Also, When I was having the "black box" problem I found a way to run my Macafee.. I also ran it after the virus was removed from my computer, however, both times I ran the scan it came back as no virus' found... Anyone know a better virus scanner (free) that I can use that will actually FIND the virus' hidden on my comp???


Thanks for your help in advance!

I am no longer having the black box "program to big to fit in memory problem"

I have new problems now that I believe are a result of the old one...

Now when I attempt to open a file a new box comes up and says "What program would you like to use to open your file." It gives me choices such as adobe, notebook, etc... I can also browse or find a file from the web....
