Hello,
i have windows vista and w I downloaded this virus called dr guard. and i just i tried to remove the dr. guard by using mccafe. Then i left my computer while mc cafe was scanning it. When i came back the popups and the rest of the symptoms where gone. When i tried to open any file it either asked me, which program should i run it with, or that the file was lost. If somebody knows how to fix it, please tell me, Help!!!!

Please rename it to Explorer.exe

Run the tool and spot Dr. Guard. Click right on it and kill the Dr with all of it's components.

Do not reboot your machine as the processes will be reanimated.

Next download Malwarebyte to your desktop:

Rename it Explorer and install it

Connect your USB keys, external disks, Mp3, Mp4, etc

Request a FULL system scan
