Hi, everytime i try to open a program, such as firefox, it asks me which program i want to use to open it. This is the only way i can open programs. Also none of my programs load up from the start as they usually do.

This problem only happened after i (think i) got rid of the "XP Security tools" virus by deleting the random number files in my: Documents and settings>User>UserData file.

Any help on this would greatly be appreciated.
