Bad virus scan?

Question

I ran an online virus check (Panda Software) . Since then I cannot open any exe file. I get a msg saying this file is needed to open this application. Cannot find flie glaogn.exe. Have searched all files and nothing found. I cannot even uninstall windows or find this file on my CD Rom.

Files I cannot open are eg. Outlook, Winzip, Word.

Any hints would be great. Thankyou

To whom it may concern:

This sounds to me like you have a virus that is affecting your system If you have an anti-virus program I would suggest updating the anti-virus then scan your system and delete any virus that you might have.

If you do not have a anti-virus program you may check if your computer has viruses for free at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ If the program finds any viruses it will NOT delete them due to it being a free scan, you must purchase their software If you see that you do have a virus it is advised to go out buy anti-virus software and eliminate any viruses from your computer.

Another thing you can try is to search your computer for adware which is simular to a virus You can get free adware removing program by going to security.kolla.de/ to download the program This scans for adware and removes anything thats harmful to your computer After you install the program download all the updates before you scan for any adware, after you scan you will be able to remove anything found.
