Open with error after cleaning Virus
« on: April 14, 2010, 06:03:27 PM »
Hey,

After I cleaned a very infected system I am getting an OPEN WITH error when I click any drives

Do you know how to fix this?

I've already had this in Windows. That's a bug, in my case not the result of any infection, a simple reboot solved it.

Hmm :)

But this was the result of cleaning a virus with ClamWin and Malwarebytes

The Laptop I was fixing was itself a Trojan - ' I had installed Avast Free for him but he uninstalled it out of his ignorance'

I couldn't access the Internet because the virus had blocked everything so I had to do an On-Demand scan

Now, this is the problem

I found many references on Google but I couldn't understand it

For example

you should browse the TechNet (Microsoft) forums about that...

 ::) i think the machine is not yet clean ::)
because there is something blocking the explorer.exe to execute,

try to monitor your explorer.exe when you open the drive. it must be active in the task manager

Best Regards!!!

With those kind of numbers I would seriously be considering a backup of valuable data, forfat and reinstall from scratch.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.6.6121 (build 24.6.9241.848) UI 1.0.809/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

The amounts of malwares detected is amazing! I detected 108 viruses and malwares in an office computer, you had better backup important data and then reinstall your OS.
