Hello there.

I used Malwarebytes to get rid of the Vista Anti-virus 2011 that was blocking me from doing things. It seems like a lot of important files were deleted and I don't know how to get them back. I can't click on a lot of things in my control panel. Some things open with a prompt of what to use to open it with. I can right click and run as administrator on some things. Some things just "don't exist" and I can't restore or backup. It even turned off the scroll section that I have on my touch pad. Some help would be useful please.

I'm also not sure if I'm in the right section to be posting this. I've never really done the whole ..forum thing.
