I have a semi-old Gateway system and everytime I try to run a program such as, Lime Wire, iTunes or any other program. It tells me it " [insert program name].exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. Please restart the program." Although with IE it tells me that is had inquired an error but it restarts by itself and it works, although initially it gives me an instant error. I tried to restart said programs and my system many times, but still it gives me the error. I had just shut down my computer today for the first time in a while and when I turned it back on this started happening. This never happened before I shut down today.

Also on a side note; Does anyone know how to turn off the little message that asks if I want to open something (from a folder) "from this location"? It gives it to me everytime I click on a file I want to move or delete, basically everytime I right click on something stored inside a folder.

Please help, and I thank you in advance.

U have a malware infection.
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
