yeah I got the antivirus 2010 virus a couple of days ago and now I cannot open any programs because it asks me what I want to open them with and there are no programs to open them with which includes my norton 360 installation cd
i have tried system restore and I couldnt open it because I had nothing to open it with
I also cannot access most of the things in the control panel ecause im missing windll32.exe
