How do I remove a virus that has Windows Media Center opening at start up and has also disabled the Internet and my control panel? Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

I have resolved this problem by simple steps:

Step 1 - Download this file to run to fix regedit command:

After this step .exe file may run normally even the icon is seem Window media center file. (If not - do continously from Step 2)

Step 2 - In Run command box, type comman: Regedit

Step 3 - Open by this tree folder:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ FileExts \ .exe

Finally - Delete all cotents which are rellate to Window Media Center.

It must be work, I were done on Windows 7, Good Luck!

Thanks your help but I can't get past the first step. I don't get fix regedit command:but fix-exe-setdefault.rar Windows does not support rar files. When I try to run Bitzipper so I can use a rar file WMC opens and blocks me from running it. If you look at the log I have not been able to download any file suggested.
