Programs won't open

Specs: Windows Vista
Every time I try to open a program, either from the desk top or searching from the start menu, after I click on it a box pops up telling me to choose a program to open the file with. It doesn't matter what program it is it always pops up and if the program is not on that list I am not able to open it.I have tried browsing through the list and there are only a few programs to choose from. I also just discovered that i can't download anything to my computer at all, when i try to do that it gives me the option to save the file or cancel, if I hit 'save file' it will download but won't open at all. This just started happening about a month ago and i didn't have any problems before this. PLEASE HELP!

Just because you have AV software it doesn't mean you can't
have a virus. There have been lots of malware infections lately
that have this same characteristic.
