Download Unlocker
The link will be right under the comparism table of the different programs.
Once installed then right click on the EXE file for a program and then click on the Unlocker and then when its finished you should be able to access the program.

What are you downloading?
i can unlock any program that has a brain lapse with Unlocker
What kind of programs are these and where are you getting them from?

Well then we will have to do this the hard way then. I have to believe then you may have an infection since what ever you are downloading could have been infected.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
