Choose the program you want to use...

Specs: Windows Vista
I had a malware/virus yesterday, which I finally got rid of with a antivirus program, but in the process lost the ability to open programs.

When I try to open an Firefox/Internet Explorer page I get "Choose the program you want to use to open this file." When I try to run Orbit, and other programs I get the same problem. I can open the program by browsing through the computer, but it reoccurs the next time and I have to repeat the process all over again. Looking for one solution to fix this problem across the board.

I have Windows Vista Home Edition
