So, I went on a website and suddenly a thing pops up Ive never seen before. I closed it.. next thing I know Im getting a popup that looks VERY much like a Windows warning. (It even had a tray icon open looking like the Windows sheild. I looked in task manager and saw foy.exe Never saw THAT before.. found out where it was and deleted it. Now.. every program I open I get the Open with prompt and the "always use this program to open.." thing is not clickable. Currently scanning with updated Malwarebytes and the latest Microsoft Security Essentials. Any advice?

Thanks large.
