Specs: Windows XP
I had a virus awhile ago (Windows AntiVirus, I think, it was a fake scan, with fake down firewall basically) and though it was nasty I was able to take it out after I did a scan with my antivirus programs and deleted the virus with them.

The virus seems to be gone (further scans have come up clean, there are no other problems) but now anytime I want to open a program the Open With: box appears. I also cannot dowload anything. Please help!

Hey I have the same problem, I followed that link to see the correct steps to fix it but it only had a EXE Registry for windows XP. I need the fix for Windows Vista 32-bit Home Premium.

(Also I have no task manager and could not follow the steps listed in link)
