Hi Everyone!

I'm hoping someone can help me here as I am completely frustrated. My boyfriend was on my computer the other day, supposedly "cleaning up." When I went to use the computer after he left, I realized that everytime I clicked an icon on my desktop or tried to get into my program files or control panel, anything like that, an error message popped up that said: Access to specified device, file or path is denied." It even says this when I try to download something. I'm getting really irritated because some of my work is on this computer and I can't get to it! Please help!!

Okay, Everyone!!

I saw that many people looked at my post, but were unable to offer advice. I recruited the help of a friend who determined that my PC was infected with the I-Worm/Sircam virus. This virus made me unable to click on anything on my desktop nor could I download anything. Just thought I would throw this out there in case anyone else encountered the same thing!!

Cheers!!
