Running Window XP Pro SP3 with IE 8 installed. Microsoft Security Essentials found a virus recently and I told it to remove it (can't remember the name and can't find a log). Afterwards, none of the desktop icons would work and IE would start then immediately close without fully loading a page. I read something about fixing file associations and downloaded a tool to fix them from dougknox.com, which worked, but IE is still doing the same thing. Malwarebytes and MS Sec Essentials could not find anything. Please help.
