Windows cannot access device path or filename

  1. G'day,

    I have started getting this error on almost all executables since I uninstalled NavHelper.

    I have no idea how NavHelper got installed, but it all seemed suspicious to me.

    I suspect that something has altered permissions in the registry on all executables.

    I would like to avoid reinstalling all my apps

    Is there an easy way to detect what has happened and rectify it please?

    I use Windows XP PRO

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Detecting what has happened is a tedious task for a normal user...so u can go for the option of restoring windows to a earlier time that is safe ,before u have installed the nav helper may be that should help...another option is that if u have the registry backups then u can clear the registry problems...
