Just curious, have you tried the registry entries I posted under? If the association on exe in the registry is already modified by a virus, you can look for the culprit, maybe find it and clean it but the registry entries will still be faulty until you correct it. Anti-viruses IMHO does not fix or restore registry entries tampered by the infection. It only deletes the infected files.
