Well, I seem to have myself a kind of Catch 22 here. The thing is, it seems that I have some sort of spyware or something using up system resources -- so much so that certain applications just don't want to load anymore. Like MS Works & MS Outlook. MS Word loads fine. So does IE. But when trying to start Outlook, for instance, the task manager indicates that it is using 99% of CPU and just freezes instead of loading completely.

I have downloaded a couple of anti-spyware programs, like the Micrsoft beta one, the one from Panda and the other one recommended on this site, but the thing is, they don't load either!

So in short, the problem I am seeking to solve by using these spyware scan programs is preventing these same programs from running.

Can anybody suggest a way around this? I sure would appreciate it.
