    Unable to open System recovery on windows vista

    I am using the windows vista on mine system. Recently, my computer has detected a virus or something nasty that I cannot place. I caused the problem with most of my programs will not open. When I try open the any program it give option of “open with”. I thought it would a system restore because it has worked before in the past to get rid of these problems, but not a single problem with it - System Restore is one of the three quarters gives me the "Open With" option. I tried a couple of different methods to solve this problem - including the troubleshooting page - but nothing works. Can anyone help me to just get open again, and who can fix things there?

    Hello thanks for replying and I would appreciate your suggestion. I have tried your steps but it doesn’t helped me lot. I have made the application as exe but after that when I went to open the application it give me the same error. I have tried lots of time but I get the same error. Mine friend was suggesting me to download the Ad-Aware Full Scan and after that mine issue get solved. But afraid to download it because I don’t have any antivirus and while downloading mine system might be affected by the virus. Can anyone suggest on this.
