The files with extensions *.exe don´t run.

I have a PC Windows 2000, SP4,
When you try to open a file with extension (exe) the system answer with: "Unrecognized version and can not be read", "syntax error", "file error".
No one aplication of control panel could open, and the most serious problem is that the antivirus doesn´t run.

For one I would upgrade to Win XP at the very least, maybe even to windows 7.
Win2k has been retired for a while now and you will have inc4reasingly more problems with not being able to see things on the web as your 6.0 browser is outdated and retired as well. There are no IE browsers that will work with Win 2k and your will need to do a re-install of your OS because it sounds like you have a virus or a multiple infection of viruses

My mp3 & video files always converted into jpg files


I too had the same prob... But got rid of it with the help of help 2 design site.. Go through this..
A new malware virus MediaControl.exe found in some parts of central asia late this month.
It changes the extension of all the media files like AVI (.avi), Music (mp3, …) to .jpg.
This just canges the file extension. Not the file format.
To play the media file, you need to re-change the file extension to the previous type, or open the file using the media player.
Malware name is MediaControl.exe.
It internally creates a folder by name ”mcont” in AppData of OS drive. AutoRun inside mcont also puts the MediaControl.exe to the winwos start up of msconfig.
How To Remove MediaControl.exe?:
1. Kill the process MediaControl.exe is running.
How?:

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open the windows taskmanager.
Click on the Processes tab
Search the MediaControl.exe, Click on End Process button at Bottom right.
2. Remove MediaControl link from Windows Start up
How?:
Click on Windows Start Button, and on the Run option at the right side of the window,
Type msconfig on the form opened at left bottom.
This will open the System Configuration Utility
.
Click on Start Up tab.
Search for MediaControl, Untick the link. Click Apply -> OK, Click on Exit Without Restart on the dialog opened.
3. Remove the AutoRun from Computer:
How?:
Option 1:
Using Command prompt inputs.
Click on Windows Start Button, and on the Run option at the right side of the window,
Type cmd, to open the command prompt window.
Type the following command lines one by one.
cd C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
attrib -s -h -r /S /D *
del *
y
cd C:\WINDOWS\system32\mcont\AutoRun
attrib -s -h -r /S /D *
del *
y
exit
Option 2
Using Safemode booting.
Restart the Machine.
Click F8 on Booting, this wil open the machine in safe mode for you.
Browse for the folder
mcont
inside C:\Windows\System32\
Delete the folder mcont.
Restart the computer in the normal mode.
Thats All.
Once you remove the mallware, your computer is free of mallware but, you are left with thousands of your media files changed its exentsion to .jpg. It is not an easy job to change the file extension one by one. You can use an Auto-Renamer programs.
We recomond you the AndRenamer program. You can download it here: [ftp://ftp2.antp.be/antp/software/antrenamer2_install.exe]

Virus infecting microsoft programs


Its the W32/Rungbu-A virus, it infects Microsoft Word DOC files by copying itself to the same filename but with an .SCR extension, appending the DOC file to the SCR copy, and then hiding the original DOC file.

The W32/Rungbu-A then sets the computer not to show hidden files (in order to hide the DOC file), to give SCR files a Word icon (so the SCR file looks like a Word file), and to hide file extensions (so the SCR file just displays the filename, not the SCR extension). When the SCR file is run, the Word document is displayed as normal.

To recover your .DOC files just follow these steps:

You have to delete all files detected as W32/Rungbu-A.

Set the following registry entries in order to show extensions and hidden files:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
HideFileExt
0


HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\HideFileExt
UncheckedValue
0

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
ShowSuperHidden
1


HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\SuperHidden
UncheckedValue
1


You must change the attributes of the original .DOC files to stop them being hidden.

My answer to your second question, is in November of 2007 the .SCR file extension started to be used to transmit a Trojan. As a script or a screen saver this file can execute other files which carry the Trojan. The SCR file may be embedded within a ZIP file which could also contain a file with a double extension. Many Windows screen savers come with a .SCR extension by default. Usually these will be found in the Windows main directory. Use caution if you receive a screen saver file via E-mail. These files can contain executable code and can be worms or viruses. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension.
