Windows 7 asks me open with for every program

Windows 7 asks me "open with" for every .exe i try to open.

I had some sort of malware disguised as an antivirus program, I have dealt with a similar situation before but this time the malware would not allow me to open any program. AVG antivirus was already running so i was able to run a scan but it could not locate the malware. In safe mode, using the task manager i was able to identify the .exe file that was blocking my programs from opening. I deleted this file and the malware stopped popping up. From what I have read and understand the malware must have reset my registry and disassociated programs with file types. Currently every program i try to open it makes me find the program that should be used to open it. I would run a system restore but aparently you do not open "system restore" with the program "system restore", each time i get an error message with i try this. Is there a waty to fix this problem. Thank you.

You will need to fix the file association for .exe

this will direct to microsofs registy fix site, from there, you will need to fun an anti malware program.
