I recently had to remove some malware from a family members computer (anti-malware doctor). I attempted to remove it according to instructions found on bleepingcomputer.com. The instructions involved using rkill.exe then then installing malware bytes to remove the malware.
rkill did it's job, and i was able to run malware bytes and remove the malware. However, after malware bytes removed the infected files and I restarted my computer i was no longer able to run ANY programs. Whenever i would double-click on any program, or program shortcut, it would bring up the "open with" window where you need to select a program to open it with. After trying a few small fixes (such as replacing rundll32 which was suggested to me by a friend of mine) with no success i got frustrated and decided to simply re-format and re-install windows.
Could this have been an unintentional side-effect of rkill, or was it more likely due to files that were corrupted/removed when removing the malware?
