Hello folks, I have a huge problem. Here's how it happened. I was starting the computer and during the loading process, Ad-Watch (by Ad-Aware) warnings, SpyGuard and Spybot S&D warnings also start popping up about browser hijacking attempted. Of course I blocked it but then Ad-Watch warned of new data trying to load on nearly @ 25 or more programs. These were also blocked. Here comes the troubling part. After all was said and done, almost all of my programs and files cannot be opened. When I click on one a window pops up saying it cannot open and needs to know what program created it. Now the programs are still there because I was able to right click on a file that was not able to be opened. Once it was right clicked I was able to select scan for viruses and my AVG started (AVG does not start from the icon or start menu). I have tried to get to system restore but I get the same "windows cannot open". Are the paths screwed up, is there a fix?
