PC Guard won't run

Hi,

we've got Virgin PC Guard on our PC (I'm aware of it's reputation...) and all of a sudden it's started freezing when it tries to load on start-up. We can no longer get into it now due to this. I'm getting the error message

'Rps - The parameter is incorrect'

Anyone have any ideas?

Meanwhile I don't have any firewall etc, though I installed AVG to allow me to do a virus scan and it found nothing. Similarly Adaware and superantispyware didn't find any problems. the Panda Onlie Scan kept crashing as it neared completion though, not sure how relevant that actually is.

I tried system restore and it wouldn't allow me to do that for some reason.

Am using Windows XP and IE7.

Thanks

No great loss, it isn't very good anyway. Get rid of PC Guard, just uninstall it.
You'll do better with just AVG and Zonealarm, for all the good PC Guard is.

If I install a free firewall, should I then disable the Windows one?

Most programs will insist on disabling the Windows Firewall themselves, but you shouldn't have two firewalls running together otherwise you'll never go anywhere on the Internet.
