    Below are the points of the problem I'm currently having:
    - It happend all of a sudden after I ran Malaware cleaning, panda activescan then I uninstalled the panda activescan.
    - The windows can't run startup programs and apps anymore including task manager, system restore, games, etc
    - I'm asked to select a progam everytime I try to run an app or anything like task manager
    - Some of the app's icon turn white/ into blank white squares
    - Whenever I try to do a system restore using either my genuine installation dvd / thumb drive, I get this:

    Try running system restore in safe mode (press F8 during startup) and run it by entering "system restore" in "search rograms and files" in the start menu.
