If these programmes are your anti-virus and other malware trackers, they might have been blocked by a piece of malware that's stopping them from blocking it. Please post back which programmes are involved - if they include the above, you might need to post into the HJT and Malware Board.

Well I have Norton 2010, and i ran a full system scan, and it didn't find anything. But it did make me realize norton could be blocking the programs, but i cant find the program controll section in it

There should be a firewall settings page somewhere. If in doubt, turn it off for no longer than it takes to experiment - it usually offers the chance to put it back automatically after fifteen minutes.
