Never, Ever Heard Of This Problem Before! Help!!!
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium 64BIT
Lots of memory .. Lots of free disk space.
No problem with my Internet Connection and I am almost sure that the problem is not virus or malware related.
(Can't be absolutely sure as you will understand after reading the rest of this post)
I am desperate!
I can't open any of my browsers.
Opening anything such as tools like malwarebytes, revo uninstaller, etc. etc. is iffy!?
There seems to be no logic in what and what will not open.
Some things will open like note pad and CCleaner (From the programs folder) but wont open from the desktop!?
(No longer works)
Malwarebytes launches from the Programs folder but wont launch from the desktop!?
(No longer works either)
None of the browsers will open from the desktop, their respective folders or from the Programs folder!?
I am also getting access denied on a lot of system tools even though I am the Administrator!?
It is odd how I was finally able to get opera to launch.
I was able to get program accessories to open .. went into system tools and launched Windows Easy Transfer (don't ask).
When that window opened up .. I hit cancel and the message Are you Sure You Want To End The Transfer came up.
After clicking yes .. Opera opened!!??
(The Only way to open a browser)
In case anyone asks Hijack this or MiniToolBox wont open either!
(The folder itself will but the app wont launch.)
All of this mess seems to have started with Comodo's Security Suite.
I had installed Comodo's Security Suite and soon after started experiencing multiple hanging startups and shutdowns.
I uninstalled it, installed MSE and Windows Firewall and .. Here I am!
It looks like I may have to do a Destructive Restore if I am to have a functioning pc again?
I only hope that someone will have an idea of what is going on before I jump to such a desperate measure!?
(Can't save copies of photos or other files because system tools or downloaded software won't work)
