every program asks open with

Specs: Windows 7
Trying to install MS Essential protection but to install it asks what program I want to associate it with. Every program I try to open asks "open with".. . . Internet explorer does this, MS works wont open etc etc. Is there a General program that should open anything? I cant seem to get this program installed to take care of any issues because it makes me associate everything with a specific one and my 2 general options are Windows explorer or windows media or open the tabs to see all other possibilities. Had indications of a Worm Blaster virus the last 3 or 4 days so trying to get this Virus protection from MS on since McAfee hasnt shown any problem but when this mesage about blaster shows up i cant access any programs or get on the internet.

If the last post fails to work, you might try fixing the file association that is associated with the installer. if you let me know what the three letters after the dot say, I will find the fix. guessing the virus changed something in the registry.
