Hello. I recently downloaded a torrent that contained XP Security Center, a very persistent fake antivirus virus. For a couple of days, about every four or five minutes, a text window would pop up in the corner telling me my computer was loaded with viruses. Also, every time I tried opening Firefox, it would block the opening of it and say "it is a security risk" and not when I tried clicking "open anyways", it was unresponsive. After a couple days, the XP Security Center disappeared but every time I try opening a program, it opens the "choose what program to open this file with" window. Every single time I try opening something, this happens. I should mention, however, that I have Norton 360 and my guess is that Norton 360 caught wind of the XP Security Center and deleted it, and something happened there. What should I do so that I can properly open programs and files? I have Windows XP. Thank you in advance.
