    Hi everyone,

    can you guys please help me? i have posted a thread in window xp forum and someone said i should post it here.

    here is the link to my post: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/975484-newbie-sp3-cmd-regedit-execute.html

    here are my situations:

    prior to posting the thread my laptop was infected w/ virus...(a red X located next to the clock w/ a message indicate "your computer is infected". at that time i couldn't connect to the internet or get to my regedit. i google around then found this "reg delete HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System". after i ran that command i was able to access my regedit.

    later i ran "msconfig" command then check option in the first tab "start up window normal" or something like that....luckily, i was able to access the internet and view all files in control panel (system....) window pretty much resume back to normal

    after that i updated SP3 about half way the computer restart itself and lock all my programs....every execute files i click prompt me the "open with" window and every programs (error message: application not found) ...i can't execute anything therefore i can't run HiJackThis...because i can't execute the program.

    Can you guys please help me out...THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
