My all .exe files have turned into utorrent and are not opening they are only opening with u torrent...........


I think you accidentally used Default Programs or the Open With dialog to associate .exe file types with utorrent application, causing every program to open in utorrent.

To fix it, you will have make some changes in registry. I highly recommend you to backup the registry before applying the solution.

To fix it, just download this file, right click on it and select merge. This should fix it.

Only my desktop picture is there when turned on nothing else


Hi.
Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue might be due to the "Explorer.exe" System file.
This is the file which loads the Windows Explorer.
The Windows Explorer in-turn loads all the required Startup Applications.
As the Applications are loaded and the icons are not displayed, you may run the "Explorer.exe" file manually.
By doing this, all the Startup Applications should be loaded.
Steps to run the "Explorer.exe" manually:
1) Press the "Alt, Ctrl and Delete" keys simultaneously. 2) Then, check if you are able to view the "Task Manager". 3) Click on the "File" tab and select the "New Task" option. 4) In the Run command window, type "explorer.exe" and press Enter. 5) This command should execute the "Explorer.exe" System File. 6) By executing this System file, all the Desktop icons should be restored.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

Worm.autoit virus(mgy.exe) make folder and all of my data files add extension .exe.exe.exe(example: desktop.ini.exe.exe.exe, mydata.xls.exe.exe, after cleaning and delete this all, my data and same file...


Boot from a Linux Live-CD and recover your files - Linux ignores the extensions so if your files are still there then they will be clearly visible.

Trojans wont go away. Hijackthis SCAN help


I am of the mind to do a complete reinstall of the operating system including flash the BIOS even if it is the same version. I worked many hours tracking down and thinking you found every part of the problem on to hit an .EXE and it all starts over again....I just clean out everything and start fresh.
If you tell us what make and model of computer along with the operating system it is we can direct you to the drivers for the reinstall. Some off those programs - for example AOL seem to be virus magnets. (if it is a dell it is really simple if you just put in your service code- it give you your particular driver of your computer.)
That is what I would do...Or you can keep hunting.
please leave rating,,,thank you

Zone Alarm will not start up when I turn on my computer?


Hi,
You can ADD the "Zone alarm" executable to your windows startup.
This can be done in 1 simple way.

1. Locate the "Zonealarm.exe" in your "Program files" folder. Usually your Program Files folder will be here "C:\Program Files". Just run a search for "Zonealarm.exe" inside this folder.

2. After locating the "Zonealarm.exe" file, right-click on that file. And select "Create Shortcut".

3. After that you'll find a "Zonealarm.exe" Shortcut file or icon inside the same folder.

4. Just COPY or CUT the shortcut file.

5. Now Right click on the "START" button.

6. Select "Open all users".

7. This will open a windows explorer window. Locate "Programs" folder and Enter it.

8. Inside you should locate "Startup" folder and enter it.

9. Once u ar inside the "Startup" folder, paste the already copied "Zonealarm.exe" shortcut file.

10. That's it. Now try re-starting the system.

Thanks
