    Hi all,
    I just downloaded the free copy of Norton antivirus from symatics
    web site and I discovered that I have a sub 7 trojan on my comp.
    I quarentineed the virus with the Norton program. Now I have another problem.
    A window keeps popping up every time I try to click on something
    it says:

    Windows Cannot find xbekkicxkufo.exe
    This program is needed for opening files
    of type 'Application':confused: :confused:

    I have no idea how to get around windows looking for this file.
    Everything I click on gives me that pop up message.

    I'm on a friends computer right now so that I can get some help

    Anybody have any Idea what I can do to get around this:confused:

    Thanks and hope you can help

    First Name:
    Go <a href=http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Only_IE.html> here</a> and download exefix08.com

    Once it's downloaded, double left click on it to execute it.

    Now try your programs.

    Assuming that works, rerun the Nortons scan and be sure your clean. And then I'd suggest you go <a href=http://www.moosoft.com/> here</a> and download the trial version of the Moosoft Trojan Cleaner and see if it comes back clean, too.

    Let us know what happens.

    Norton quarantined the file but did not repair the registries "shell open" entries which the trojan associated itself to.

    Typically when this happens you are still able to access the internet with IE and download files.

    The exefix08 file at the site below will repair the registry and should allow you to run exes.

    Download, unzip it and double click it to run. If you need an unzipped version, you can get it from the Only IE link at the bottom of the page. If you cannot run the .com file try the .reg or .inf versions from the Only IE link.


    If you still have problems afterwards, run the startuplog.com file and copy/paste the contents of startuplog.txt file which it creates to a reply

    Hey all,
    Thanks for the help that seemed to do the trick.

    I went through all those files that were on the link above and got everything worked out.

    One thing though,
    I noticed in one of those files, it said I was supposed to have in the win.ini
    a: run =

    and some other word that ends in =
    with nothing after them,
    But I don't have that in my win.ini

    This is what I have:

    Normally you would see those entries under the [Windows] header, right at the top of the file, and you could add them if you wish -- if the header isn't there you could add that too. But they would probably get added automatically by any program (legit or otherwise) that wants them.
