I was recently attacked by a Trojan virus known as the XP Anti-Virus 2012. I went to bleepingcomputer.com and followed the instructions to remove the virus. As far as I can tell I followed all of the instructions properly, including downloading and installing a program called "FixNCR.reg" and then another called "rkill" and finally I installed and ran Malwarebytes. The virus was apparently successfully removed. I did all of this in Safe Mode and logged in as an Administrator before carrying out these instructions. When I rebooted my PC after removing the files, I can no longer open any applications. When I try, I get a window that tells me to choose the program that I want to use to open the file.
