    Yes, My friend got the Vista Internet Security 2012 rogue virus. The only way I could attempt to get rid of it was to go into safe mode and run a portable version of Superantispyware from my flash drive because I could not install Malwarebytes. Everytime I would try to install something a box comes up asking what I want to open it with. I am assuming the rogue virus damaged Windows file association. How do i repair that so I can install programs to clean the rogue virus further? Thanks.
