Specs: Windows 7
Ok so I just had the Windows 7 antispyware trojan virus and i ran a virus scan with mcafee that came on my laptop. it said that the trojan had been removed. but now the problem is every time i try to open a program it wont open and gives me an "open with" task box and asks what program i want to use to open the program. it says that IE is the recomended program. i click on it and it gives me a file warning saying it can harm my computer. this happens with EVERYTHING i try to open. i cant even open any antivirus programs or anything.
