I installed Norton Anti-virus and it found an infected file. I deleted it and now I can't open any files. When I try to, I get a message box that says "Windows cannot find tuyo.exe. This program is needed for opening files of type 'Application'."

What is this file? Where can i find it so I can copy it to my hard drive?

Please Help!!!!!

You don't need that file. It's the virus' doing.

Download and run Exe.fix from <A HREF="http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html">Reticulated Toys - rmbox</A>

It will restore the Windows file associations for exe-files.

Afterwards, also have your computer scanned on line once more at <A HREF="http://housecall.antivirus.com/">Trend Micro HouseCall </A>, just to be on the safe side.

Good luck,
