Hello, i just got rid of some nasty "rogueware' from my laptop.
but now when i try to run a program i am asked what program it should run with.
when i try to run the control panel i am asked where "control.exe" is.
this is very frustrating. i have tried a couple of fixes. there is one to fix the registry file by creating an exe.reg file to repair the registry but that would not run.
do i need to repair my system using my vista install disk?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Yeah, is better make a repair system with your Vista DVD.
