Achmed, SWAG, sounds to me like you may have a worm/trojan rather than a virus. Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware can do the job and you can get it free @:
http://www.superantispyware.com/
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so it doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.

Achmed, really odd, but sorta reinforces my speculation/ FWIW, I used the link provided and it took me to their website. Possible your nasty's protecting itself by blocking that site?
Perhaps you can use a friend's machine to get the download and save it to CD which can be run on your machine?

From the first post, it seemed like you are just missing the links between DOC and Word. So every DOC file you double-click, he does not know how to open it ?

Can you run Word ? If you can, just once open a DOC file (shift-double click), check the checkbox "open with this program", and voila. Repeat for other types.

The whole virus is messing my pc up is getting an old story now. What I would do is this:

1. buy a harddisk (bigger than the one you have already)
2. attach the harddisk, have it run as D drive (or whatever)
3. copy ALL files from C to D
4. physically disconnect drive D
5. re-install the OS on your main disk
6. get a decent virusscanner, use it on C drive, until no virus, go back to step 5 if needed
7. attach disk D, and immediately, scan for virusses, don't install anything but a virusscanner
8. if any issue, like for example virusses still left because virusscanner does not detect them, go to step 6, and get a better virusscanner for your virus you have
9. if sure it works, you can repeat from step 5 again, if you have time and want to be 100% certain
10. scan ALL USB disks, mark ALL CD's/DVD's with a sign, to indicate potential virus on there, use those with caution
