download a pic off limewire.
that pic was sent to a folder in d drive call my favorite bands.
my favorite bands is just a folder were i keep my music.
ever since i downloaded that pic i have had a warning message saying" windows has incountered a problem and has to close". after that the file closes every thing goes blank then it refreshes and all my programs and folders that were open are still open but my favorite bands folder is gone so every time i try and acess it the same thing happens. i try and scan it but that same message comes up and the scanning program closes. i.ve tried alot of programs but nothing can scan it. the only program that has been able to scan the folder is avg 7.5 but that didn't fix the problem. i have resently downloaded comodo and that didn't work so i got rid of it but when i was uninstalling comodo it froze so i restarted my comp and now comodo is still there but its not in the add/remove program list.

i new to this site so i don't quite no how to use it. im only 14 but im try to fix my mistakes that i have cause on my comp.

heres the list of programs that ive used:
1.avg 7.5
2.norton anti virus
3.paretologic antispyware
5.spybot search and destroy
8.advanced system optimizer
9.max secure spyware detector
i think there are more but i can't remember them
