Thanks in advance for any help I get.
I started having problems with that damn Antivirus XP 2010 so I started looking for a solution, first every time I opened an application it would start up, if I used task manager to kill it it would also close whatever program I had tried to open. I found a solution to stop it and that was to use KillBox. At first I couldn't locate the av.exe so I got Malwarebytes, I did a quick scan and that showed me the location of the av.exe. Then I used KillBox to delete the file and now I cant use IE it doesn't even show up in start/all programs. Also, I cant use control panel/add or remove programs or add hardware or even Itunes which I need since I have an iphone, also I cant use my nero to burn cd's so i don't know how I'm going to back up any files I need I went to start right clicked my computer and tried to select properties but it said:
application not found,
When I looked for it it was there but it looks like a blank piece of paper no lines or anything.
Almost everything I try to open asks which program to open it with.
I'm not completely illiterate when it comes to computers so I know what I'm doing but sometimes things happen I don't even know about.
I guess it started a month or so ago when updates were available so I allowed it to update and went to bed when I awoke the next day it was in a continuous reboot cycle so I recovered it and lost a lot of files. Currently I have about 16 gb's of memory its a hp pavilion running Xp dual core sp2 can't update past that because of errors.
I have Hijackthis, defogger, combofix, gmer, malwarebytes, and dds.
If I don't get a response soon I'm just going reformat.
Not to rush anybody but I need this computer for work.
