    have a client system here with a virus.
    It has disabled all executables. So no no Iexplore.exe even in safemode. so i cant run any executable file. even the .lnk files on the desktop dont work.
    I get an error msg windows cannot open this file. then wants to search for appropriate program. I downloaded a spyware detection program onto cd put that in the infected computer and it wouldnt run either.

    If anyone has heard of this please post me a note with some direction. In the mean time back to searching.
