I think that Lavasoft's Ad-aware is one of the most annoying programs EVER! Again, it has thrown my system off it's normal pattern. For some reason I can't open ANY executables. I don't understand how I'm running IE but I am luckily.

If anyone can lend me a hand and help me out of this hole I would be greatful!

Which version of Windows? If XP then:

Restart, keep tapping F8 to bring up a boot menu.

Select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Select the operating system to start (if you have multiple operating systems installed).

Log on with an account that is a member of the administrators group.

At the command prompt, type

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Press Enter

This will start the "Welcome to System Restore" screen. Go through the steps of the Wizard and follow the instructions to restore your system to a previous restore point

I don't think this is the doing of addaware. I think this is the result of a virus. I had it a little while ago.

Have a look at my original thread I think you'll find the answer there.

I always do this, and I am very sorry but I'm not running XP but 98SE

Start, Shutdown, Restart in MS-DOS

at the > prompt type

scanreg /restore

and press the Enter key. You should be given the option to restore the registry to one of 5 previous dates. Choose the most recent before you had problems.

I would agree though that this is more likely the result of having a virus than running Ad-aware.
