windows 7 domain profile corrupt

I have a user who got a some malware/virus.  We scanned the computer with malwarebytes and it appeared to remove the problem.  I can login to the computer fine- all seems normal.

However, when the original user logs in, all file associations appear to be lost.  If I click on Malwarebytes from her profile,  windows says it does not know how to open mbam.exe ... if I try to click in internet explorer, it says it doesn not know how to open iexplorer.exe, etc, etc..

I tried renaming her profile to jdoe_old and logging in again as jdoe, but it will only create a TEMP profile.,,, it will not recreate a new profile for Jdoe.  I was thinking I could create a new one and then copy some items from the old to the new.... but I can't seem to create a new permanent jdoe profile.   How to proceed?

This is Win7 64bit on a domain without roaming profiles.
Thanks...

It's not a problem with the profile, but the EXE assosications that are broken. Run the attached reg file, and it will be fixed.
