Despartley need help, have a new computer with windows vista

on it and have 500gb's hard drive, and 3gb's memory, after getting

the computer, installed my programs on it, and it was fine for a few

weeks, then all of a sudden, I seem to have a virus or something,

and tried to run all my applications to find it to no avail, Then tried

to run a boot scan and soon as it found one spyware, it froze and I

had to restart all over again, this kept happening, so then went

back to the windows normally and my antivirus wouldn't work

anymore said that there was files missing, and kept trying to

reinstall it, and kept getting the error " program has stopped

working, windows will look for a solution" then the program closes

and this now happens on my registry scanner, and my spyware

scanner too, and anything I try to install, (Of course windows is

never going to look for anything for you that I found out) so then

went online to find an online scanner to see if I could get a fix

there, so went to the trend micro house call or whatever it is and

downloaded it, and even in the download it was stalling and

saying there was something blocking it's installation, so it ran it's

own scanner and said that there wasn't anything it could find, so

installed the trial program, and then when I went to run it I got the

same error that I was getting before, with my own programs, so

now I am in limbo [bleep] so to speak, new computer and can't use it

because all my programs are stalling, and then a white screen

comes on in a flash and then the program that I try to run even

opening my windows explorer, same thing, I have no idea of what

is going on, right now I am using my old computer with winxp on

it, and if someone can help me I would really appreciate it.
Also I would like to know if it comes to it and I have to reformat the

drive that is on mynew computer, is it possible to put winxp on

there as I have my disc, I really hate vista and their lousy

permissions and all the crap that they have on there, it's almost

like you spend all that money on a computer and the thing and

system and files and everything belong to microsoft, not you. I

really hate it, anyway, if anyone can help, thanks, K. :) running ie7 and all drivers up to date, also ran all the diagnostics and they all say fine, but is not fine, it's tottaly infected with something I cannot find.
I have uniblue spyware, and uniblue registry booster, and spyware doctor, and avast antivirus, and none of these will run now get the same old crap with them as well, as others that I have and have tried.
