The problems started when I tried to update Firefox. Firefox installed, with no indication of a problem. I then went to run it and noticed that all the links and shortcuts to it had disappeared. I opened IE to download it again and found that while it goes through all the motions of downloading and installing, the Mozilla folder has nothing executable inside of it. (Yes, all of those folders are empty.)
I've also tried downloading Chrome with the same results.
I'm also finding that anything I install instantly vanishes. Though, vanishes isn't really the right word- more like was never there in the first place.
I cannot do a system restore.
I cannot delete certain files.
I can only run IE.
I cannot open many of my game files.
I have run Spybot, but my computer will not quarintine the files.
I have a hijack this log if this will help you to help me.
I know that the rule is one problem per post, but I'm pretty sure all of these problems have the same origin.Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
