Can anyone please help me. Whenever i try to open Microsoft Works, this pop up comes up. See attachment. I know my antivirus quarantined 2 files, but i'm not sure if those are the ones required to fully function my Microsoft Work. The two files are :

Channel Screen Saver.SCR
eaa9334.TMP

Also i did my first spybot scan and it also quarantied some files. Thanks for your time

Sorry I found how to enlarge it. It says, "Works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the Word Processor. The files may have been renamed, deleted or moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then restarting the program again."

Here's the fix. Back up all files on your hard drive with a .wps, .wdb or .wks extension to removable media - floppy, CD or Zip for example. Clue: All those backup files are in the Documents folder in the MSWorks subdirectory in the Program Files Directory - the path is C:\Program Files\MS Works (or Works)\Documents. Then uninstall Works in the Add/Remove Programs control panel; Restart your computer; Reinstall Works.

Simply put you just do as the popout suggests. The viral infection may have renamed, deleted or moved the files necessary for Works to start. Now all you can do is backup your sensitive data and uninstall/reinstall Works. The popout is telling your Works is corrupted beyond repair.
