exe's wont open after scan


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've just run a scan on a windows XP pro PC after seemingly being infected with 'XP Anti-Virus' Malware.

The scan wouldn't run as the current user account so I logged in as administrator and sure enough, Malwarebytes opened, updated, ran and found Malware and seemed to remove succesfully :)

When I logged back on to the user account non of the installed programs would open any more, instead I was greeted with an 'Open With' dialogue box - Logging back on as administrator doesn't have this issue.

Hi,

Please log in into the account where exe files won't run.

Then, make sure extensions are shown, see here how to do this.

Then, navigate to the C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Antimalware folder and locate the file mbam.exe in there

Rename mbam.exe to mbam.com

Then, doubleclick mbam.com. This will allow malwarebytes to open. First use the update tab and check if there are updates. Download the updates.

Then, perform a quick scan and let Malwarebytes remove what it found. Reboot afterwards. Malwarebytes should restore the associations for exe files again if run from the affected account.
