I keep getting a windows explorer error popping up when I try and open certain avi files on my computer. There is a crash and the window closes and reverts back to the desktop with other processes still running. Sometimes another error pops up which says Dr Watson Debbuging Error and the same thing happens to explorer. Nothing else crashes - just the file and folder I am trying to open.
If I run SPYBOT it finds the following:
Avenue A, Inc
If I run ADAWARE after it finds nothing.
If I delete these and restart my computer I get no errors and can open my avi files fine. Howver if I re-run SPYBOT the files are all back again.
I was wondering if there is something on my computer which is managing to access these spyware programs and reinstall them on a daily basis. Is this possible?? Also I have seen the Dr Watson thing linked to trojans in other forums and the avenue a linked to virus attacks aswell. But my computer is running fine except for the avi and explorer crash.
Does anyone have any idea what my problem might be??
