Question about Computers & Internet
I moved 8 viruses from my computer but now all the attributes have been changed and to make matters worse,clicking on a software gets the reply not found or the message open with and therefore it is difficult to open any listed software
I'm going to step out on a limb for you on this.
I'm sure I will get flamed for this.
but listen, when ever the computer gets a virus, dammage may have already been done by that virus
even if the antivirus software has removed it.
in short , any other solutions provided will not even remotely help if the system has been infected.
Virus dammage must be controlled first !
My recommendation here is that you perform a complete system restore, and that does mean formatting the hard drive while your at it.
And thank you most kindly for selecting FixYa!

Start ->run -> type cmd -> type attrib -r -a -s -h *.* and press enter.
What this basically does is removes the read only, archive, system and hidden file attributes on the files so that the virus or the container of virus will be shown.
Within the command prompt you will run the delete command to delete these suspicious files as the are shown up, example type del Autorun.inf or del New Folder.exe.
When you have finished doing that unplug your flash drive, update your anti-virus and scan your entire system.
Last but not least plug back your flashdrive into your computer and scan it with your anti-virus.
Viruses on flash drives are usually spread because windows has the Autorun feature set automatically run by default and this needs to be disabled.
Here is the easiest and fastest way by far to disable the autorun feature.
Download Disable_autorun.reg registry key.
Click Save to your computer ->Rigt click on file -> click run
Click Yes to confirm addition to the registry
