I've tried everything. Virus scanning. System restore. But nothing helps. I'm using Windows XP pro.
For example, let's say I try to open "Hijackthis". I get an hourglass for a few seconds and then nothing. So then I open up Task Manager and it'll show "Hijackthis" as running or not responding.
Also if I try to uninstall anything I get a message saying it cannot find the log file or dat file or something.
Has anyone got any idea whats causing this?
