Was wondering if any of you computer & Windows gurus could offer some advice.
Two days ago I booted up my computer as usual (Windows 2000) and noticed that my Zone Alarm firewall(free version) and AVG Anti Virus (free version) had not started up.( I had set them to start automatically at boot-up).
I tried starting them both but they refused to do so.
Since then Windows is behaving wierdly. For example when I go to Start>Run>regedit - nothing happens. Other programs behave similarly...they refuse to start, while some flash on the screen for a second and then dissappear....
I then noticed on Task Manager that the Zone Alarm client was appearing & disappearing every 2 seconds or so. So I uninstalled Zone Alarm. Then I tried uninstalling AVG - but it wont uninstall.
Having uninstalled Zone Alarm I got the free version of Sygate Personal Firewall - but that would'nt start up after installation either.
I did an online virus scan using BitDefenders free virus scanner & it detected:
