Hey guys and gals,
I woke up this morning and Spysweep had a message saying a Trojan was detected on my computer. I don't remember what the name was but it said I should sweep my computer so I did. I put the Trojan in quarentine and rebooted my computer after the Sweep Completed. When Windows reloaded I noticed AIM didn't load up as it automatically does when my computer starts. So I clicked the icon on the desktop and I got the which program would you like to use to open this with? Also Spysweeper didn't load either. My McAfee loaded but I can't open the security center at all. So then I started investigating other programs and found nothing will open. Dreamweaver, Word, Works, Adobe Photoshop the Calculator A lot of my options in control panel as well won't open. I can open Internet Explorer and I can open word or works documents but not the master programs themselves. Just wondering if there is anyone who has had this happen or can help me in getting my programs to open again.

Thank You

Scott

I just tried to do a system restore but when I click on that I also get the message which program would you like to use to open this with?
I dont understand how going on the internet is pretty much the only thing my computer can do right now. I tried redownloading Aim but it won't run it after I save the exe file to my computer.
