Lemme make this short and sweet. So, I got a "nice" rogue antivirus and then i used an antispyware (superantispyware) then I rebooted it when it said it all was done, now I can't open regedit to check my values or open any .exe programs :L Heck, it says regedit can't be FOUND!

I hate to give you the bad news; but I have struggled with these types of viruses before and the best advice I can give you is to backup all of your important files and documents to an external drive, insert your Windows install CD, and reinstall everything. After a particularly bad virus infestation, the *only* way to completely restore a computer to good and working order is to start over from scratch. There's no way of telling exactly which system files were damaged, replaced, or corrupted.
