I was just doing some programming on my Vista laptop and suddenly a number of windows popped up, including three or so UAC dialogs, a Windows security dialog and something from whichever anti-virus I have (McAfee I think, oddly I can't remember). I clicked cancel etc. for the UACs. At some point Explorer, Opera and the dialogs closed, and I now have:
- Microsoft Security Essentials Alert, with "Potential threat details" and a huge list of virus scanners, each with an empty progress bar under the heading "scan result"
- Security Suite, an unbranded window suggesting I have a number of threats
- Messages saying "Application cannot be executed" as I said in the thread title
- The space key being `pressed` repeatedly - meaning that the occasional pop-up (other "Application cannot be executed" ones I think) gets closed immediately, except for some reason not the one mentioned above
What to do? Restart in safe mode?
Thanks very much for any help.
