    I got a virus asking me to buy some kind of virus software. Of course I did not buy it. I ran norton antivirus and malware bytes right away. Norton removed a virus and malware did not find anything. After that when I went to click on Internet Explorer and microsoft word it would ask me to pick a program to use to open this file.

    I looked around on this site (tech support guy) and I found a post that said to do this......

    "Go here File association fixes for Windows Vista and download the fix for EXE files.
    Extract the enclosed .reg file[​IMG] to your desktop, then double click it to merge into the registry. "

    I did that and all seems to be working fine now. My question is how do I know if the virus or spyware are totally gone off my computer.

    Do I need to download a newer version of the malware bytes because mine is about 1 year old?
