I uninstalled AVG A/V yesterday and installed Avast based on a friends suggestion. Unfortunately, it didn't work so well, lol.
I am infected to where my cleaing programs wont reach home to update, and also have a new behavior that I have not seen before. If I run a maintenance program (spybot S&D, Adaware SE, reg cleaners, ect) they shut down mid stream, and the next time I try to open them, I get an error stating:
"Windows cannot access the specific device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Now I can use the options in trojan remover to get things working again and get these to open, but it appears that I am stopping the children and not blocking the parent, as these always come back and the problems start all over again.
I wanted to post a hijack this log, but it also stops while running, and now will not open again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Windows XP Pro SP3
