Having a few issues... I think I have two viruses at once. Any help would be appeeciated in cleaning up my computer.

1) Anytime I try to open up any application, it brings up the "open with" screen and only has one recommended program, adobe reader 9.4. Of course, that won't work.

2). Definitely been hit with the Vista Antispyware 2012 alert. I see multiple pop-ups and warnings on my screen.

So my big problem is this, I have successfully removed vista virus in the past. From researching on this website, I have followed the instructions to access/update the registry and then try to download rkill explorer.rxe download. My problem moving on...is that the "open with" virus is preventing me from opening that application. Therefore I can never get to the point where I can run malwarebytes anti malware scan. Please advise...either I have two viruses at once or this 2012 vista anti-spyware has updated.
