Clicky

  Looks like it is relitively new but maybe a remake of the w32.blaster After being infected nothing will run. Every time you double click on a exe or com you get the "open with" dialog. The strange part is that it only messes up the current profile. If you log in as a different user everything appears fine.

   There has to be a way to fix the profile that got damaged. I just haven't found it. As mentioned I have only come across this virus twice in the last two week so it has to be more or less a new on. Any idea how to fix the specfic profile that got damaged?

   I have tried the registry fixes but s mentioned above all the registry fixes and file associations are per computer not per profile. The problem child is the user that was logged in when the visus hit. If I log in as a different user everything works fine.

That same "Open With" problem was solved in this EE question:

@jimbecher,
The comment you selected as a "Solution" is only the first of several steps needed to repair your system.

You really should run additional scans to make sure your system is clean.

The other "steps" weren't a problem. Combofix, Malwarebytes, tdskiller, etc. The computer was "clean" in the first hour. Getting exe and com files to run again was the killer :)
