Regedit: another program is currently using this file

  1. My computer recently caught some sort of virus that blocked out task manager, regedit and cmd. I read Julios post on the preliminary steps on virus removal and got all the way up to step 11. Everything seems to be working fine at the moment. Should I stop here or continue with the rest of the steps?

    Download RatsCheddar.zip http://www.castlecops.com/zx/sjpritch25/RatsCheddar.zip (policy fixer)

    It contains a program written by Rathat, and it is a Policy Controller.
    Save and extract this program to the desktop.
    Once extracted, click on the RatsCheddar.exe file.
    Enable everything, then click Exit
    Reboot your Computer.
