Cant open programs after install anti-malware

June 13, 2011 at 20:16:39
Specs: Windows Vista
My mom's computer was infected with malware so I downloaded Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. During the installation, there was an error, but the program seemed to function alright so I ran it anyways. It got rid of the malware and restarted the computer but now I can't open any .exe files. It keeps saying that I have to choose which program to open it with. Help?

Please download exeHelper from one of these two places:

Save it to your Desktop

Vista or Windows 7 users right click the downloaded file and select “Run as Administrator"
XP users, double-click on the downloaded file to run the program

A black window should pop up
Press any key to close, once the fix is completed.

>>Please post the contents of the exehelperlog.txt in your reply.<<
[It is created in the directory where you ran exeHelper, and should also open at the end of the scan.]

When exeHelper finishes, restart your computer.

See if you can run .exe files now.
