Hi , i made a major boo boo by following a link from my email and ran a prog called "a.exe" . Now my system is all $%^&'ed up.
I cant run some .exe files , tried running all my spyware programs but nothing will start.Just comes up with the error "an unexpected error has occured on the execution of this file". Also the my .exe file icons have changed to the picture of an orange sunset.I found a file called KatchEm.exe which definately looks like the culprit , I delete it but it doesnt solve the problem, and wen I reboot its there again .
Dunno wat to do next . Can anyone help?
here is my hijackthis log

Hi , ok its just got allot worse, I am now on my wifes pc and unable to access virtually anything on mine.
basiclly I arrive at the desktop and all my icons have gone now and the mouse moves very slow. the start menu works but i cant go anywhere from there , one message that pops up says "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. please contact your system administrator.the only way to close these error messages is to click on the bar at the top of the message and click close.
somthimes i can manage to get the task manager up but that doesnt funtion properly either ie i cant go to the process tab....ok hang on just tried it again and it says "task manager has been disabled by your administrator".
Oh man..... I will stay by this pc tonight and answer any replies i can .
HELP!!!
ps tried safe mode too and had no luck .

Your log definitely shows signs of at least two different infections, but if you're unable to run programs or access the Internet, it's going to be a little difficult to start the cleaning process.

1. You said you had no luck with Safe Mode, but what exactly does "no luck" mean? Did you havce the same problems as when booted normally?

2. When you booted into Safe Mode, did you log in under your normal user account or under the Administrator account? If you didn't use the Administrator account, try that and let us know if things are at least workable.

3. Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" boot option?

Hi , i ended up getting advice from another forum because they answered first.
here is the link to the thread http://www.cybertechhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100983
Annemarie has been very helpful, and I am very gratefull to her.Apparently she is working on a solution as we speak, so I have my fingers crossed.
As you can see if you have a look at that thread I have access to most of my files now, but im not sure how Im going to back them up if i have to reformat, as my cd burner isnt functional.

That was one heck of a troubleshoot you went through over at CTH; good work. :)

What exactly is wrong with your CD drive?
