    Hello, please help me!

    I had a Trojan virus recently that I removed successfully when I upgraded my Norton Antivirus. The virus was quarantined and removed, but now I get weird error messages.

    When I open programs, such as Mozilla Firefox, I get a message asking me to choose which program I want to use to open the file. I have to select Firefox in order to use it.

    When I open BlackBerry Desktop Manager, I get this message and I cannot open the program:

    Invalid Command Line Parameters
    Usage: DesktopMgr [/record <destination directory for recorded settings>]

    PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Click on EXEFIX.

    Make sure you save it to your desktop.

    Once saved to your desktop, double click it and it will merge to the registry automatically.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right click it and select Open With > Choose Program Then select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    Note: Please reboot the computer after applying the fix.
