I'm not sure if this is related to a virus or whatnot, but some of my applications just wont load or atleast completely

symptoms are similar to what happened to this person: http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread16359.html

Painkiller multiplayer demo and Project Entropia will not load.

When double-clicked, Painkiller gets an hourglass but it goes away and nothing is loaded.

For Project-Entropia, the load sequence gets past a EULA for patching, then trys to load the game to no avail, and in the same way as Painkiller.

I have run windows update and have tryd uninstalling and re-installing on both programs aswell as re-downloading and installing each of them to ensure the installs were not corrupt.

Can anyone help me? Where should i start? Anthing would be much appreciated.

Here is my HijackThis log:

Unlike the log in the other thread you referenced, there are no indications of malicious infections in your log.

Open the Event Viewer utility in your Administrative Tools folder and look through the System and Application log files for entries labelled "Error" or "Warning". If you find such entries, double-click on them to view their details; if any seem related to the program crashes, post the full and exact contents of the details window(s) here.

OK- not too much info to go on there, unfortunately. The cryptic hexadecimal numbers in the errors you posted can be decoded, but that's not something I'm going to dig in to right at this moment (which happens to be the moment of 12:35 AM for me).

Faulting games are often a function of video or sound card issues (drivers, etc.); have you looked into that possibility yet?
