Can anyone please advise? My son has a Tosh laptop and when he booted up, adwatch logged a number of events which he replied to block. Since then the icons on the desktop were incomplete ie incorrect colour. Now we cannot open any programs including control panel programs. I ran in safe mode through which I carried out system restore. System restore worked and the icons are now ok but it still wont open any programs.
Ad aware is not running now but it still will not load any progs on desktop except Internet Explorer. in safe mode I can system restore but still no other prog will work. Cant even run anything in Control Panel
I think you will find that adwatch as loaded a file in these programs or altered a file to stop them running. My AV on my win98se comp works like that if it see's a problem. I had to reload Netscape 7.2 only yesterday cos of the above
