What does it say when you try to run it?

What error does it display? Does it ask which program to use to open the file?

I'm not a microsoft ***** or anything, but that's not a reason to get a mac. What you mean to say is "I am an illiterate PC user that doesnt know how to stay away from websites that put spam on my system, I dont know how to use automatic updates to maintain the latest security patches, and not download **** from people/places I dont know. So my next computer will be a mac because its idiot proof and will make sure I dont do these things for me"

The only times I had problems with windows was when I knowingly ran a software that I knew contained a virus but the reward of getting what was inside was worth the risk.

Thank you. Most people don't think about that. Also what people don't know is that most of the harmless virus are created by anti-virus software companies. I don't run anti-virus software, I just a firewall but I also prefer to reformat my windows hard-drive(I have 4 hard-drives) about 1 once a year just to help clean up everything.

While in the registry, do a search (F3) for antivirus 2009, and delete those values.
OP, did you try this? What did you find?

Had a clients computer with this, installed norton antivirus 2009, cleaned it right up. These have been hitting pretty hard (Antivirus 2009, Antivirus XP/Vista, etc).

Good luck.

I just reformatted one of the guys computers in my housing complex last weekend. I spent almost three hours trying to get all of his data off but his wife's profile got corrupted and I couldn't export her outlook mail. Oh well. Serves her right for downloading yahoo games...

This is a nasty one. If you are already infected, there is almost no way to fix it without another computer. Like some others said, it would either block or redirect you from going to antivirus sites. I even tried clearing out the lmhosts file to no avail. For some reason, I couldn't get online with his XP home install in safe mode. And I wouldn't let that thing connect to my home network.

Hope you get it straightened out, this one really sucks.

From my experience...the only real cure for this particular virus is a format and reload of the software from factory...sorry this happened to you

I got that **** on my laptop a few weeks ago. I got rid of it by simply installing all the updates I had been putting off. I run Trend Micro Antivirus, did a scan and it was gone.

From my experience, and its pretty extensive.

This like, every other peace of spam that I have ever dealt with, has been curable.

Follow my post, and it will fix all your problems.

Trust me I keep up with my updates, and by no means am I a computer professional. I do not consider myself illiterate b/c I keep up with these things, I run Norton and Spysweeper and they seem to keep up with anything that could damage my system.

These sites you speak of are usually **** and I look at far less **** than most on this site, I'm a car ***** and if looking at extensive car builds is considered ****, then I'm guilty.

Ive fixed mine twice and my father in laws. Get Spyhunter and run the scan. Thedn so a search in your computer for scan. You will find a text file that shows the location of all the viruses that spy hunter lists including registry. Go to each file including the registry and delete. Be very carefull in the registry. use regedit at the start/ run box to put you in it

Well I fixed it a very complicated way, but it works.... I downloaded a complete windows xp and reloaded it, then loaded Ubuntu 8.10 so I can boot to either one. Now all is well! thanks guys for all the replies

That's cool Sam...I'm just throwing my .02 in the ring since my last 8 weeks has been spent trying to find a fix other than what I advised...my "9-5" is fixing these issues...and eventhough your scans may come up clean...give it a little while...issue will most likely reappear - at least it has in our (insert gov't agency here) tests.

No matter how you fix these issues...sad fact is...some other d-bag out there will come up with something new to screw your system up...because they think it's fun...craziness.
