Hey folks,

I've been struggling with this PC for the last two days. I cant install or uninstall any programs. My virus scan (McAfee) and the whole internet secuirty suite isn't operating properly. When I first logon, the task manager indicates that McAfee is using all available "CPU" resources. And the computer is obviously slow to respond to inputs. After I End process that, I'm able to access internet, word, other programs, etc. But if I try to open virus scan no window opens but in my task manager i can see that mcagent is running but i have no interface. I tried downloading AVG7 but i couldn't install it because the install/setup window won't open either. :( When i tried to uninstall Mcafee from the control panel same thing the window would'nt open but in my task manger RUNDLL32.exe is running and consuming resources. :mad:

Please help

What OS are you using? If you have System Restore available, try using that to return your system to a date before you started having problems.

Try running HijackThis from Safe Mode; we won't get a complete picture that way, but at least a starting point.

I'm running XP pro. I tried a system restore point, but it would not restore. I tried running hijackThis in Safe Mode, but it gave me the same errors. also, McAfee virus scan did the same thing.

I downloaded a trial of Norton 2005, but it says "C:\DOCUME~1\Jared\LOCALS~1\Temp\NAV" folder is not accessible. When it try to install it. Then it says it cannot find 'NAVSetup.exe'. It does this in regular startup and safe mode
