Exe. files infected xp home edition can run[exe] any remedies


Hi there,

This problem occurs when one ore more of the following conditions are true:
  • The registry values that are associated with the file name extension are corrupted or the values are missing.
  • The computer is infected with a virus.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Restart the problem computer in safe mode, and then back up the registry.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type command /c copy %Windir%\regedit.exe regedit.com, and then click OK.
  3. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  4. In Registry Editor, compare the following registry subkeys with the registry subkeys of a working computer for the file name extensions that do not open:
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<file_name_extension>
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\<file_name_extension>file
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.<file_name_extension>\<Sub_Folder>
    If you cannot open the .com files, compare the following registry subkeys with the registry subkeys of the working computer:
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\comfile
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com\PersistentHandler
  5. If you find any difference between the registry entries on the problem computer and on the working computer, restore the default values of the corrupted entries. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Select the registry entry that you want to change.
    2. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
    3. In the Edit String dialog box, type the value that you find on the working computer in the Value data text box, and then click OK.
If the problem persists, follow these steps:
  1. Note the CLSID number that is found in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.com\PersistentHandler registry subkey.

    Note The CLSID consists of a long set of numbers that is enclosed in braces ({ }).
  2. Compare the CLSIDs with the CLSID that is located in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\<CLSID_number> registry subkey. If these CLSIDs differ, restore the default values of the corrupted entries.
Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini
%Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WorkgroupCrawler\Shares\”shared” = “[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Yahoo Messengger” = “%System%\gphone.exe”

About settings on my computer


you can try to restore it to an earlier time before you started adjusted the registration files. Go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools> system restore and choose a date before you started adjusting the files. The computer will restore and reboot. If this does not help you resolve the regedit.exe problem then I suggest booting from cd rom and selecting Repair. This will restore any windows files that has been corrupted or deleted.

I hope this helps
