Greetings to all of you,
Please read this:
The virus in question has modified registry keys which prevents opening programmes. Now, several viruses do that and you may not have all the same virus.
For once in my lifetime, Symantec has created a useful tool. Mind you, Symantec in line with its principal, created a tool which will not remove the virus but at least resolve the open with problem.
I could give you directives to modify registry entries but that would require time and in some cases be risky.
So after running the tool, all of you must download, install, update and run Malwarebyte.
So here are the steps:
1. Download, unzip and run Godzilla Fix:
2. Download, install, update Malwarebyte and run a FULL (I insist FULL scan)
You may be required to reboot during the process.
3. After the scan delete the items found.
Now if none of you comeback to give me some feedback, my spirit will haunt you for eternity and I will cast a spell on your system. I'am serious.
