I am Locked out of all my files,

vbimport

#1

Each time I try to open a file, I received this message: The idem ‘ceejiexx.exe’ that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Does anyone have an answer of fix to how I can around this problem. Thank you.:confused:

Can you navigate to the position on the hard drive where the program is and click the executable file directly? In other words, take a program like VLC—go to C:\Program Files\Videolan\VLC\vlc.exe
That assumes you are using XP 32bit operating system. In a 64bit operating system it would be C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe

If the original executable files are still working, you might try a System Restore, back to a time when the shortcuts were still functional.

Sounds very fishy.
I’d download and install Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and run it in Windows Safe Mode. Perform a full scan.

Agreed. Smells like malware. I’d rather use a live CD than installing some malware scanner on a possibly compromised system.

Thanx
Terramex & mciahel,Tried all your fixes and still a no go, the shortcut to each file is still not letting me open the files or folders.

So, all your shortcuts now point to a file called ‘ceejiexx.exe’? If yes then you have something very wrong. If this was just an example then maybe you should say so.

If you right click on a shortcut and click Properties and then click Find Target, it should take you to the folder where the EXE is. If you do this and then double click the EXE, what happens?

Download the Portable Version of SUPERAntiSpyware, boot into the safe mode and access “Preferences”. Run the fixes under the “Repairs” tab then update the definitions and configure the application to scan “all files”.

Run a full scan then return to the normal boot and repeat the process.

This should cripple the infection enough to to restore some functionality.

Download and run the free version of SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes and Kaspersky TDSSKiller.

This was successful for me on a system I had on my bench about a month ago. The symptoms were similar to yours, no executable was functional.

The portable version of SUPERAntiSpyware has a .COM extension.
