When I booted up my computer this morning it did some sort of registry scan in the initial boot phase...before I got to the password screen...and once everything was booted up my Internet Explorer program wouldn't launch...it gave me an error msg like "The program has been renamed, relocated, or deleted" I right clicked and clicked on an address in the history and it went to it...no problem and I was able to surf from there. This is where it gets interesting, though, none of the programs on my computer that have an EXE file work anymore....WHAT'S UP WITH THAT!!!! Please help me!!!

Sounds as if you have a fake AV progroam installed try bootooting to safe mod with networking and running Mcafee and malwarebytes
Grab stinger and run it as well in same mode. If they do not run try renaming them as com files.
That said I am not current with all malware so better this posted on a malware forum so I wll move the post.
Oh have you tried restoring to a time before this issue happened?Message was edited by: Peacekeeper on 27/04/12 7:12:24 PM
