One of our Win XP boxs got hit with a virus or spyware. When we click an icon, it asks what application to run. I was able to send that email account an email with a link to Malwarebutes and which did find a few viruses but after the quarentine, removal and reboot, the same problem exists.

How do I resolve it?
