i'm having trouble with my control panel, once i'm there, i cant open anything in it
i was reading some instructions that were given to someone with a similar problem, and i used the "exefix8" link.
It seemed to work, cuz when i went back to the control panel, everything opened and i thought everything was fine.
But a few days later, i tried to open something in the control panel, and it wouldnt open.

This has happened twice, and i've used the exefix8 2 times, and it always fixes it, but i've noticed that when i download a jpeg or mpeg, they save as exe files, and thats when the stuff in my control panel gets messed up
its only when i download stuff
Nothing else in my computer is messed up, everything seems to be working fine, except for the control panel and the files that keep saving as "exe" files

i did the startlog, but i dont know very much about technical stuff on the computer, so i wouldnt know if there r errors in it... :(

Hi mm21,

Welcome to the board!

If it changes back all the time, it certainly points to the presence of a virus or trojan.Why not post your startup log here, so that we could get a look, and maybe offer some advice?

Greetz,
