I have been having some strange things happen to my computer of late.

First I have noticed that many of my USB devices do not work, ie the logitech web camera (for skype) my PDA Dopod pro 838 doesn't sync, the printer or scanner doesn't work. and from time to time my mouse doesn't work correctly in word. I also cann't burn any disks.

The other thing i have noticed is that I cann't seem to install or uninstall any programs.

Is there anything I can do?

This could be due to many different reasons. I'd first try scanning for malware on your system with these free, online scans:


Once you get a clean bill of health from them, then we can start to troubleshoot the cause of these errors. Please also let us know the make and model of your system.
