Hi,
just got 2012 for windows xp virus and was able to delete using avira rescue cd however all my file associations seem to have gotten corrupted since i cant even open exe files to run malwarebytes setup for instance.  Is there a way to fix this without having to run a utility since that would require me to open up an exe file.  Already went into folder options and in file associations created new one for exe to point to applications but didnt work.  thanks

Ran the fixNCR registry file and worked perfectly.  Is this to a specific registry fix for the 2012 virus or just to fix associations for exe?  Thanks.

Fixes the associations for .exe avoiding the Catch22 of not being able to run a simpler.exe fix.  Yes, this was written with this group of malware in mind.
