    Hope somebody can help me i recently just got a virus on windows xp. Every file i go to open up which are all .exe files says ''This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. create an association in the folders options control panel''. I read alot on how to fix that and nothing basic seems to work(meaning not screwing with the reg.. i also found out when i tried opening my command prompt that none of the commands work even ''help'' so if theres anyone that can help me with both of these problems it will be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry for the late reply, these forums are very busy. Do you still have this problem? If so, can you do the following:

    Please download exeHelper to your desktop.
    If your AV program throws up a warning about the program, ignore the warning. Some AV's flag this program because of how it works... that's all.
    • Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.
    • A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.
    • Post the contents of exehelperlog.txt ( Will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com and should open at the end of the scan)
    Note : If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program before posting a log - and post the two logs together ( they will both be in the one file ).

    In your next reply, please submit:
