C:\WINDOWS\system32/rundll32.exe application not found?

Recently my laptop got Virus Attack in XP OS. Here is the culprit name - Antivirus XP 2010. It got downloaded from video site. It acts like antivirus and shows false virus information. Does not allow your computer to open IE or any browser.

Solution - Antivirus XP 2010 removal
Since I had 2 OS, I logged into my Vista and Googled. I found a solution. Simply installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and performed a full scan then removed culprit’s information and exe files.

Rundll.exe application not found
After removing the virus, When I rebooted my laptop I found all my shortcuts are missing associations. Again a Google search gave me solution.
Go to the link and download and run the EXE file association fix.

Wow. the exe file association fix made my day. Had the same problem with the xp antivirus attack and after running the malware remover, the shortcuts stopped working. Fixed now.
