I recently installed Norton Anti-Virus 2006; I have no viruses according to that. I use Spybot Search & Destroy too - no issues found. I have noticed, however, when I try to use the secure shredder (Spybot's file cleaning feature), that freezes up too. I'm certain the problem is related. I uninstalled my Norton; same problem. Reinstalled & no improvements. I used the Microsift recovery feaure and went back a few weeks - no difference. I'm at a loss and very iritated. Can anyone help me out?
As a side note: I'm worred that I might have deleted an important file by mistake. I had a free online centipede game and thought it might have had a virus, causing this problem. It had a number of files starting with "CENT" and I killed them all (there was no uninstall feature).
