If you're having an issue with permissions being edited and such, download SUPER Antispyware if you can. It can restore your permissions back to normal and allow you to regedit and other things.

When I try to import the reg script it says this:
"Cannot import C:\Users\bev\Desktop|trojan_fakerean_exe_fix.reg: The specified file is not a resistry script. You can only import binery registry files from within registry editor." Do I have the wrong spelling or something? Thanks again.

I've noticed that with 7 a lot. Right click and "edit" the .reg file. then copy it out into notepad... Then from start menu, just type in "regedit" then manually click down to the registry string you need to modify.

Run an antivirus boot disk that can scan before Windows boots and possibly clean the infection. Avira has one - its an iso.

I use Avira as my AV, and I've used that disc as well. It's saved my ass once or twice. Here's a direct link for download: http://dl.antivir.de/down/vdf/rescuecd/rescuecd.exe
