I actually found this forum last night and planned to post my computer log today. A couple days ago I got a virus that has only multiplied into more viruses and trojans. I have Avast and usually have no issues, but Avast can barely keep up and can't move or delete any of the files because they disapear before that can be done. Now this morning I start up my computer an none of my programs started up on startup and when I click on a program it will not open and I get the following error:
Paint cannot read this file.
This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported."
I can get some programs to open if I righ click and choose "run as" and then click ok leaving the options set for "owner"
I shut off the networking and removed my personal files. I do have trial programs on there that I REALLY need!
So what now and where should I start.
