    Hello, when fixing my parents laptop I used Rkill in Safe Mode With Networking, which installed as iexplorer.exe (so the virus I had wouldn't detect it as an anti-virus and block it), but now when I try to open Internet Explorer, Firefox, or any program, I get the "Open With" window as if it is not installed on the computer now.

    Is RKill messing with my programs since it installed as IExplorer.exe or is it something else?

    I ran Malwarebytes and Rkill in Safe Mode then rebooted is all.
