Windows 7: MC has taken over whole system via file associations. How to stop it?

MC has taken over whole system via file associations. How to stop it?

With symptom of increasingly slow Firefox I suspected malware. Ran malwarebytes but it hung up on data base update. Then non-updated program froze.Reset Firefox then ran no.2 on their recommended malware list: SuperAntiSpyware. It found 5 malwares hijacking Firefox searches etc.Continued-I got curious and loaded Win Explorer to see which files it had reached.
Bad move: program immediately stopped. And a 'file associations' message displayed a switch to Media Center. But then I found that ALL my programs, running or not, loaded Media Center!
Hence solution above on 20 May no use for me as cannot reach such window options -I get Media Center first. System boots with MC full screen. Win Explorer works - for 10 seconds, then to MC.
Tried: Safe Mode... various deletions... so now, deleting Media Center. But not possible.
Help!
(as I can run no other programs, I am writing this on a different computer)
