Sorting out a poor old and confused PC...

I am doing all I can to sort through all the files on my computer, and it's a huge task. I've had this computer for a long time, and it isn't liking life at the moment.
The whole thing is entirely disorganised, everything's saved in different places and... well, it's going to take a while.

However, I am running into a few problems -

1. Norton is not bringing up any viruses or threats. I think it's safe to say that somewhere on this computer there are viruses. (Last time the computer went anywhere near a computer repairer (?) about 4 years ago, he found 4000 viruses on it. Or so he said. It seems likely that it would have picked up a few, right?)

2. When I attempt to go through my videos to delete any I don't need, this happens - http://img46.imagesh...2842/001ywj.jpg (At this point may I point out that what's entitled "Walking Round in Women's Underwear" is a parody to the song "Walking In A Winter Wonderland", it's not some strange fetish I have.)

I get this error message a lot, sometimes when I open "My Documents" or "My Music" too. Usually I can ignore it, as it still lets me work in the folder I'm looking at, but it's still very annoying.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Pigeon :)

You may very well have some malware or virus.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal 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).
