Cant load any programs after removing Internet Security 2011

I have a laptop that had a Internet Security 2011 Virus in it. I removed the viruses with Malwarebytes and Super AntiSpyware. The problem is that when I load the computer back into windows, it can't open any program at all. When I try to open a problem like Internet Explorer, It tells me what program should I open it with. This is with all the programs in my computer, even Windows System Restore. I tried running in Safe Mode because I heard that you can still run some programs in Safe Mode, but I can't. I am not sure how to repair this kind of problem.

Computer is a Lenovo Laptop and running windows XP Home

Malwarebytes and SAS aren't enough to completely repair that infection.

You need to fix the registry modifications.

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by younghv (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_27028908.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
 
Thank you,
