Specs: Windows 7
I'm attempting to repair a computer after a virus attack. I've removed the virus but now I seemingly can't open anything (File or Window) without telling the machine what to use to open said object with. It's not an "Error" but a popup window to select a program with.

This did not come with a windows cd so that's out and my sister didn't create her backup cd's when she bought this emachine (fail, I know).

Anyone know what I need to do about this?

Jay, Try the "EXE File Association Fix" at the link below. It hopefully will correct your problem. If it doesn't try the "LNK File Association Fix".
