For past several days, my laptop been very slow and sluggish. Computer makes a very sick sound, as if the hard drive is frantically working. Sounds like nails across blackboard, or bees on steroids.
I ran a scan with Ad-Aware 2007, and removed all of the infections highlighted
I also tried to install Spybot Search & Destroy. However, I can never get Spybot to install. I get an installation screeen ... then, while I click through the license agrement and some other screens, the box disappears. Poof. This symptom occurs over and over.
I then tried to install SpywareBlaster. Same problem as with Spybot ... after clicking through the various "Next" buttons, the entire installation disappears.
As a final last ditch effort, I tried running a Hijack This. All I get is a "Program Error" dialog box that says "Hijack This.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows"
My operating system is Windows 2000 Professional
I am stuck, and need your help. I would appreciate your help
