Who sent you this link, and which Panda product did you download?

Presumably the Panda link in the competitions page. click here

Did you load it on top of another Anti Virus ? Never a good idea.

hi yes it was that link you have above it was on the pcadvisor competition page. I uninstalled my AVG before I installed the panda antivirus. Since I last posted I am now using a friends PC as I cannot use my own. The mouse wont work, the PC keeps freezing, ad-aware and registry mechanic keep freezing when they get to a certain point and the chkdsk utility keeps coming up in the taskbar saying to run because some files are missing(mshcon)Uninstalled Panda I thought but it keeps saying that it cannot uninstall because part of the programme is missing. I asked google what mshcon was and they turned up a worm called r_bot Can do nothing with my PC Can you help me please?

Have you tried running Registry Mechanic in safe mode ?
If it doesn't like safe mode, try CCleaner click here run on the issues tab, I've just checked and it's quite happy running in safe mode.

To get to safe mode, tap F8 during boot up.

well thanks for trying to help me got in touch with panda who told me how to resolve the problem done this it didnt work couldnt get it fixed had to get a guy out who checked it and told me only way to get rid of the problem was to reload the pc which he did just beware of this download panda platinum 2006 internet security as it will just do damage to your pc and hopefully pcadvisor will withdraw this competition and just in case your wondering not once did panda deny that their download had done this to my pc thanks again for your time and help keep up the great work
