    AVG is free and it's here http://www.grisoft.com/

    Remember it's no use moaning about having AIDS when you had unprotected sex.

    VIRUSES SUCK!:D
     
  9. it sounds like a virus that modifies how exes run in the registry. if not a virus, try a registry check utility like norton windoctor 2002.

    Dude, I know you are pissed, but the First rule of computer downloading is to have a virus scanner. I had 6 last month.

    I dont install firewalls, I dont run firewalls, I dont install antivirus programs. I scane my computer for a virus once a week, with

    http://housecall.antivirus.com

    I have never EVER had a virus, and I have never EVER been hacked. Common sense and a little software knowledge is much better protection then installing half a dozen programs that use all your memory, and interfere with all your games and apps, and prevent you from controlling your computer.

    Shh its a secret... www.quickheal.com

    spanko, you either don't use the internet alot, don't get alot of emails or everything you do online is legit and never download files from file sharing networks or other warez... my programs don't intefere with anything... if they do, then the user is retarted

    Iv'e had this same error, everytime you try to run any sort of pragramme an error message appears, had this happen only this morning (again).

    I have no viruses on my machine (that Norton can detect) I also use spyware removers and a firewall.

    It took two re-boots to cure, don't know what caused it but it was not a virus. There were also errors on the volume reported.

    The last time this happened I re-booted and a message something like ("can't find "c:\Windows\System32 "?????.???")

    I had to perform a clean install of XP and re-format the two drives I have.

    You can try (using the recovery consul) chkdsk /p.
