This is when I got bothered and used Bit Tornado to download the file to a different folder. Then the problem really started. Whenever I go to My Download (the place both firefox tries went to) and try to delete both incomplete files, the My Computer browser goes unresponsive like Firefox. I use the task manager to close it and then my entire desktop (except background) disappears, forcing me to manually restart. Also, whenever I go to the folder I saved the file with Bit Torndado (which finishes), the same problem will happen there whenever I scroll down and the file would appear (does it on the row right above it and when I try to scroll down).
I've run my McAffee virus scanner and multiple spyware scanners, but those have come up clean. I've set my computer back to the day before I downloaded the files and it's still happening. I'm using XP Home, which came already installed on my Dell machine. I don't have an XP CD.
Any help at all would really be appreciated. I can live with those 3 wasted gigs and unaccessable folders, but I would rather not.
Awaiting your adivce.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, I cannot access Safe Mode either. It stops loading .sys's at this one (alp..q....something I think) and says Hit ESC to skip some other .sys. It does nothing if I don't and nothing if I do. Just stays on that screen with a long list of .sys's.
