My computer started running really slow. The next thing I know my Microsoft office programs (exel, word) disappeared. Now my AOL is gone. And when I click start and all programs, no programs appear.
I have McAfee firewall. I also run Adaware and Spybot often, but I haven't renewed my Norton Antivirus subscription in nearly a year. I am planning to renew it tomorrow, but I don't know if my problem is too much.
When I did an adaware search, I had four critical objects called "Lycos sidesearch," so I deleted them from the registry.
