File Association problem after virus removal

Dell / Inspiron 531

Specs: Windows Vista
I cleared out a few viruses last night with Malwarebytes and since then, when I open any program, the 'open with' window appears. Even for logging onto firefox it asks for this and I have lost all the shortcut icons I had on the bottom right toolbar.

Any ideas what the issue is?
