    I had an earlier post in a different forum, but this seems more appropriate... trying to help a friend out...

    Since this morning, everytime she tries to run a program, it tries to run it in Wordperfect. This includes double-clicking on an icon on the desktop, right click-->Open, going through the start menu, etc. She can't even run things like System Restore, Add/Remove Programs, etc.

    I thought it sounded like the registry had been changed so that anytime I tried running a program it redirected to Wordperfect, but I can't even run Regedit (via Start-->Run)... it also tried to start Wordperfect! Even in safe mode!

    Any ideas on how to access regedit? Does this sound like any Trojan/Worm?

    Thanks in advance...
