Okay, I don't know whats wrong but all of a sudden Adobe After Effects has take over. Everytime I execute a program After Effects opens and says that it could not import the .exe

Then I uninstalled it and now nothing opens.

And I have a project to work on and finish by thursday, but everytime I try to open the program it opens After Effects. The only way I can open it is if, I right-click and use the run as option. And for my right click options it comes up as.

> Adobe After Effects Projects
> Run As


Can someone please tell me why, its doing that? Cause its really having it open up.

As a first step, I would try running chkdsk on the system, using this link as a guide: XP Chkdsk, Using the Graphical Version (My Computer) - http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html

I've tried that. I can only do the one before since I can't open up the properties.

Repair install, takes 40 minutes or less.

How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if Internet Explorer 7 is installed - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964

If that doesn't fix it, it's not a systems problem...more likely malware of some kind (IMO).
