Windows Vista Cant Open Files(mainly exe)

August 18, 2011 at 10:43:41
Specs: Windows Vista
Hello, I've recently received some sort of virus in a file called 'gul'. I had an anti-virus program that detected and supposedly deleted it, but it keeps popping up after I restart my computer, so I started Task Manager and immediately stopped it. I even deleted the file. So now, after restarting once more, I can't open any exe files. When I try to open something like Aol Instant Messenger, Skype, any media player(Windows, Quicktime, etc), I always get the Choose the program you want to use to open the file and there's nothing to choose from.

Is there anyway I can resolve this issue?
I'll try to follow instructions carefully despite me not being good with computers.
