Its all started when the Internet Explorer closes itself and I cant open any new window. However,I have no problem using Google chrome to surf the net.
Realising this situation, I tried to scan my computer using Ad-aware, but the program closes itself and I cant open it anymore. I receive a message stating "connection error - Failed t connect to service".
Unable to scan my computer using Ad-aware, I installed Hijackthis and tried to scan my system. However, when I click on the "scan" button, Hijackthis closes automatically and I could not start it anymore. When I try to open it, I receive an error "Windows cannot access the specidied device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions o acces the item".
I have booted into Safe mode with connection but I still cant start Hijackthis and Ad-aware. However, my IE works again. I am posting this message in Safe mode with connection.
I also can't scan the system using Symantec antivirus.I got an error "Scan engine returned error 0x20000003.
Please help me to solve the problem. Thanks
