  1. i did this to fix the malware problem but now my computer will only run programs when i right click and press start on a program. i can not system restore or anything. please help

  2. Reboot your pc, press F8 on boot. I would not use spybot, as I am not happy with its update frequency. I recommend Spyware Doctor or malwarebytes.

  3. I’m having the same problem as Daniel. I did the manual uninstall since none of the antivirus would install whilst it was active. Now nothing will run unless I right click and choose ‘start’. How can I get it back so the executables will run properly?
