WinXP opens many copies of Programs

  FredM 13:22 17 May 06

I had a strange bug in my OS last night. The computer HD was active for quite a while while I wqs doing somethingelse and I just closed down as usual.

This am, the computer kept opening umpteen copies of any programs I clicked on. Disabling all Grisoft Free pluins in Processes stopped this. Installing another antivirus program started it again. The bug also kept me from using regrestore and even system restore. The same problem was there in Safe Mode and even Norton Ghost 9 boot up program.

After loads of antivirus install/uninsatll, trojan scans, there was nothing ontowards and I finally found one restore point where this did not happen and the system now seems normal.

What's going on? My system is WinXP2Pro with all latest updates. I need to stop this happening again!
