Download
SDFix
and save it to your desktop.

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the
following :

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the
    Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
  • In Safe Mode, right click the SDFix.zip folder and choose Extract
    All
    ,
  • Open the extracted folder and double click RunThis.bat to
    start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the script.
  • It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the
    registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool
    will be running and removing files.
  • When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and
    display Finished, then press any key to end the script and load
    your desktop icons.
  • Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the
    contents of the results file Report.txt back onto the forum.

Download HijackThis self-extracting zip version from here. Once downloaded, double click on the file & it will install into it's own, permanent folder.
Start HJT & press the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. When the scan is finished a window will pop up giving you the option of where to save it. Save it to desktop where it is easy to access. Open the log file and copy the entire contents of the file & paste it into the body of your post. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET. Most of what is there is necessary for the running of your system.

i play a game named darkswords which is a .exe file and when i try to open it i get the same response as the person on this forum saying this file is corrupted please run a virus scan and then reinstall the programme although like the person on this forum this did not fix it. Well i assumed the instructions u gave this person applied to all .exe files so i found this post and followed the instructions. The instructions did not work although here are the resuls of both the reports for you any other suggestions for me?

thank you and please reply to my problem and try and help me

I am confused... this is what happens when you piggyback on someone else's thread.
Are you saying you have a winupdate.exe problem? That is a worm file, AS such as AVG AS will fix it.
I cannot read this part of your SDFix log: Authorized Application Key Export - stop smilies, maybe add a couple of spaces to the keynames and repost that section.
- I don't know why winlogon.exe would want web access thru your firewall, unless it has been hijacked.... while connected to the web check in task manager that winlogon is using zero CPU time.
Remove one of your two AV services - you must have only one running cos they often interfere badly.
==Download this temp file cleaner from http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1 --click in the download window to run it, and when ATF Cleaner opens go Select all, and then Empty Selected.
Next click Firefox [if you have that browser..] at the top, Select All again, and Empty Selected again. Follow that procedure also if you have Opera.
Close ATF.
==GET AVG antispyware 7.5 here.. http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5
or here.. http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-spyware-free
-Install it and UPDATE it.
Start AVG a-s 7.5;
-under Scanner/ Settings please change the default action from Recommended Actions to QUARANTINE, and run the complete system scan.
-press Apply all Actions and Save the log file. Post the log file.
Post again with that info plus a log from this version:

Ok i am sorry if i didn't explain myself properly and im sorry for piggy backing someone else's thread i just found this thread when i was looking for a solution to my problem and then i typed my problem in here.

Right the problem i have been having is with all .exe files. When i try to open a .exe files it says this file is corrupt try running a virus scan then re installing the programme, i have run virus scan with avast and spyware and adaware scan with pc bug doctor and spybot search and destroy. I then re install the file and it did not work it still come sup with the message saying file corrupt.

And just to let u know i cant install avg i have tried several times but it wont let me, this may be something to do with the avg download file being a .exe file.

So after searching the internet i found this thread which i fought may be usefull to me so i ran the scans u said to run with SDFix and with HiJackThis, below are a copy of the scan this time with smiley's disabled:

You must uninstall one of either your Avast or Trend AV scanners - two AV services running will conflict with unforeseen consequences. Remove one. Now. I will not post again until I see that you have done so.
==Please copy the text between the lines to a notepad [format/wordwrap unchecked] and save as showkey.bat, as type "all files", to your desktop; dclick it to run.
The key, if you wish to import it again [by dclicking the reg file] is saved at C:\showkey.reg
__________________________________________________________
reg export "HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\sharedaccess\parameters\firewallpolicy\standardprofile\ authorizedapplications\list" > C:\showkey.reg
reg delete "HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\sharedaccess\parameters\firewallpolicy\standardprofile\ authorizedapplications\list" /va /f
__________________________________________________________

Next, you should go Start, run and paste in:
sfc /scannow -and OK. You will need to insert your installation CD.
