Hello all, this is my first post and I hope I will make my self clear to you.

I am using Windows XP and a malware hit my system. It is "windows Antivirus Pro" 3 days ago.

Now some of the files which I modifies after its attack turned into green in color and I am unable to open it. I am also unable to run any .exe files as well as any command from RUN like regedit or some thing else.

I have downloaded "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" and scanned my HDD with the help of another system. Yet those files are GREEN in color and I cannot open it.

Can some one please tell me what to do with those files (there are many like .xls .doc .pdf ....)

Thanks in advance.

Sorry I was trying to find help fast as I am pretty much stuck here.
Yes, I have posted it in CNET also.
Thanks for your reply.

I am able to run .exe files. But still I am unable to open any files which are green in color.

The scenario was, I got this system from an another person who used it before me. When ever I try to modify few .doc / .xls they turned into green. I was able to open them until 2 days ago. Now all the files .doc .xls and even .pdf turned int o green and I am unable to access them.

Do you know, what might have happened? and what can I do in-order to restore all the files and access them.

Thanks
