So it all happened yesterday.

I was scripting some gamemode stuff for a game and then suddenly the compiler couldnt compile. It was strange as it was the first time and it was running with admin permission, i even tried compiling a backup (which was 100% fine and used to compile) but failed.

Suddenly everything kept demanding admin permissions, even when i tried using the calculator.

Decided to reinstall my windows and formatted the C drive, but same problem. Now whenever i try to open firefox or internet explorer or anything, it opens the "open with" dialog. I am posting this on phone.

Need help. Atm malware antibytes is scanning.

If you formatted the hdd and reinstalled the operating system your computer should be clean.


Did you run the malware scan before or after formatting the hdd and reinstalling Windows 7?


Was Malwarebytes Antimalware the program you ran for the malware scan?
