I can't run applications

Post by Praces719 on Tue Apr 27, 2010 5:28 am

I am unable to run downloads and certain applications. I always get a error message stating:

"Application cannot be executed. The file ---.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"
I was also getting messages that a threat is being detected called Bankerfox.e and something else.

Hi Praces719 And Welcome to GP!


Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
There are 6 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.

Please post the log in your next reply.


Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following:


Please try this version of malwarebytes AT:

Save it on your desktop. You'll see it will have a random name, and will look similar like this:
Doubleclick on it, so it will extract the files and will start Malwarebytes automatically.
In case the installer (random named file) won't run either, rename it to firefox.exe or explorer.exe or iexplore.exe and try again.

When Malwarebytes opens, click the "Update" tab FIRST and select to check for updates in order to get the latest updates.
In case Malwarebytes doesn't open, search for the folder mbam-installer on your desktop, open it and doubleclick the file winlogon.exe which will be present in there. This should launch Malwarebytes.

Then perform a scan and let it remove what it found. Reboot afterwards (important).
After reboot, post the malwarebytes log
