I had a recent Malware infection (Vista Security 2012). I am running Vista 32 bit, 2.5 GB ram, 1.73 ghz. I used Malwarebytes to remove it and only could execute it by running as admin. It removed the Malware issue but now cannot open any program on my computer without a prompt saying "choose the program in which you want to open this program with". Malwarebytes quarantined 2 files, 1 registry data and 1 registry value.
Are my registry values now corrupted and/or missing? I also noticed that my sidebar no longer loads upon boot up and also a few taskbar items are missing (touchpad icon and a few others) as if it's in selective start-up. I also did a full Mcafee scan after the malware was removed and reported no issues. I can open any program but only right clicking it as an administrator.
Thanks for any help.
