Specs: Windows 7
I think I may have downloaded a virus on to my pc. It has deleted basically everything, including system restore. Now when I open an .exe file it asks which programs to use. I know none of them will work because thay are like internet explorer and microsoft outlook. Please Help!

giancarlorosa3, You show that you're using Windows 7 but you posted in the Windows Vista forum? Try the exe file association for your version of Windows at the links below.

Your exe fix may keep re occurring if you don't also get rid of the virus. Download Malwarebytes, install, let it update fully, then run a full, scan...remove selected when it finishes...you may have to restart.

if your anti virus is not functioning properly anymore you may have to uninstall and reinstall, it may be fine, some viruses corrupt the anti virus...but many don't.
