I am in a bit of a pickle here. When a while ago I accidently shredded some stuff I accidently interferred with
the anti virus and firewall applications that still appear on start up but wont actually run. If I try to upgrade as I did with zone alarm or download any other free trial software the machine goes into shut down and will not start up again.However the stuff I have is now useless but I CANNOT SEEM TO GET RID OF IT. I am told that I do not have permission. Add/Remove programmes will not delete. I would be happy to just buy new stuff and start again but they recognise the existing stuff which is lurking in the backround but not protecting me. Any ideas? I think my security is at risk.
