Hello all,
When I try to run Symantic, Spyware Doctor, MalwareBytes, etc...they all freeze on the same exact file & my computer locks up. The only way to un-freeze my PC is forcing the power off. The file is as follows:

c:\My Backup 09-04-20 1148AM\Documents and Settings\LocalSevice\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE\index.dat

Any help is greatly appreciated!
