I have apparently successfully removed the XP Antivirus 2012 malware from my computer. However, many of my desktop icons do not function. For example, when I double click on my Excel desktop icon, my computer opens a window that says "Application not found". The application still resides on my hard drive, as when I go into my files menu and open an Excel file, the file opens normally and Excel functions normally. The same issue exists for all of the programs in the Microsoft Office Suite. Also, when I double click my desktop icon for any of my browsers, a window opens asking which program I would like to use to open the file. Any ideas as to what I need to do to restore normal function?
