Just lately I have been working on Illustrator 10 and now I cannot open my artwork. Program loads up then it instantly shuts down. Same thing happens to Spybot and AVG so I don't have a chance in removing any viruses. I have other programs such as Photoshop and that seems to be fine, I can work on that. But I have a job due this week and I need to fix it. How do I go about doing this? I may have alot of virus. I ran stinger last night and it scanned it for hours and then shut down. I tried to remove AVG or Spybot and then reload them but it wouldn't let me remove the programs in control panel. PLease help me.
Thank you

Ok try running Windows Live OneCare
Be sure to click ONLY on the grey box below the picture of a wrench “Full Service Scan”
This may take some time especially it it needs to defragment the drive.
Please post back with any questions and results

Last night I tried to download the AVG update, this time explorer shut down. Something is trying to stop me from getting rid of it. I have Spysoft and it found alot of virus's and got rid of them all. Earlier I tried Vundo and it also found alot of virus's that also got rid of them. I will try Windows Live OneCare this time and see if it works. Has anyone had this problem before?

I went to this site http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default...e&venid=sym and it has found 104 infections as a result.
Eg. W32.Randex.GEL, W32.Spybot.Worm, W32.Randex.gen, Adware.BargainBuddy, DriveCleaner, ErrorSafe, WinFixer, Spyware.Isearch, Downloader, Trojan.Adclicker, Adware.WebRebates, Winfixer, Adware.Topsearch, Dialer.Adultchat, Adware.VirtualBouncer, Adware.ZangoSearch, Trojan.Elitebar.
I cannot open MS Word, Illustrator, AVG, SPybot search and destroy. I have tried SPysoft and Vundofix. I got rid of some.
Please help.
