I have a problem with my computer. Every time I try to open up any .exe file, the computer asks which program I would like to open it up with. I have managed to work around it, but only to open the internet, by trying to open mozilla firefox with mozilla firefox. As funny as that sounds, it is true.
Before this problem started, I had a malware problem. It was a fake XP Security Center (which is fairly new I am assuming, as there aren't any guides to get rid of it. ) I used Super Anti Spyware to help me out. I let it finish the search, and get rid of the fake security center. The Security center didn't allow me to open up the internet, it said that it was infected and that I had to go on the internet unprotected.
Well now, the security center is gone, but this problem appeared. I can't open any .exe files. Which becomes such a pain in the butt, considering I can't even do a system restore now. I would upload a screen shot, but I can't open up paint.
Please help in whatever way possible. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
