OS: windows 7 ultimate service pack 1



I tried installing a program infected with malware. It tried installing .net framework 1.1 then set off my antivirus (avira) I removed t with malwarebytes and reinstalled .net framework but my uninstall a program menu is empty. I tried using system restore but I didn't have any restore points. Is there a way to get my list of installed programs back?

Run sfc /scannow. For instruction see: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7
