Post by breba01 on Wed Sep 02, 2009 8:18 pm

i had the windows police virus and was able to i think delete it. then i followed another guide because i would get like 500 error messages. I then had the desot.exe file and deleted that. But now, i cant open anything, like internet explorer says you have to find the file to run it, which i do, but it just doesnt work, or if i try and open microsoft word it just has an error that says can not open application. Please help...Ive already had the total security virus today and as soon as i fixed it got the windows police virus and now im stuck again! please help I cannot get onto the internet at all! explorer will not load
