what is .EXE?????? its not letting me do anyt

Specs: Windows Vista
i downloaded some music off the internet which was a big mistake. as soon as it downloaded, my computer just went crazy with pop ups and all sorts of messages saying my laptop was infected and so and so viruses had been found. i downloaded a trial of mcafee which cleared out all viruses but now my computer seems to be going funny.

all programs such as skype, firefox and ms office seem to have .exe on the end.

when i click on opening a program such as firefox, it asks, choose the program you want to use to open this file.

i wana download google chrome but it doesnt let me open once it is downloaded.

any suggestions...

thanks

I really don't think fixing the file associations will work at this point.

'i downloaded a trial of mcafee which cleared out all viruses but now my computer seems to be going funny.'

What AV are you using? If not McAfee, I would suggest uninstalling McAfee using the uninstaller from their website....you CANNOT use 2 AV's at the same time.

Sounds to me like you are still infested with malware.
You can run:
1- Malwarebytes
2- Trojan Remover
3- Hitman Pro.
They will all remove whatever infections they find.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
