Sorry to be such a bother but this problem is driving me bonkers!
Every turn develops into a new drama-here's the situation so far-

(1.) When I go to click on a program (any program) my computer either immediately or soon afterwards pops up a window that says "program error-process has already been exited-has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." Of course restarting the process only sends me in circles-the same thing continues to happen-sometimes, obviously, I'm able to start the program but usually during the course of operation the "program error" window pops up and it's back to musical chairs again!
My system is, O/S Windows 2000 Pro, P4-1.6GHz 400MHz/P4FAN (P4-1600AR), Motherboard-D850MVL -MB Intel D850MV w/LAN, Rambus 256MB (2).

(2.) Now if I didn't already have enough problems I've apparently been infected with the Fortnight.E virus-it gets worse, in turn, I infected my ex-wife with the virus via an email (well, I'm sure you can imagine my situation-it would be better to have my nipples dipped in honey and dangled over a pool of hungry piranhas-she's pissed! Of course, the fact that the virus installed porno weblinks into her favorite file made matters even more unbearable-you'd think she was a nun or something! At any rate,
I have run a Panda On-Line AV-Scan-several Norton AV scans-SpyBot, Ad-Aware and SpySweeper-nothing works!

(3.) Currently, when I go into my Outlook Express to check my email I find that I'm receiving the same emails (multiple copies of the same emails) over and over. I exit and re-enter only to have the same thing happen again-multiple copies (2-3-4 or more copies of the same emails that I just deleted!) It's never-ending. Yesterday while going through the BS (unsuccessfully) to fix the above situations (program error & fortnight.e virus) I decided to un-install my totally useless Norton AV and install a trial version of the Panda Titanium AV. That's the only new program changes I've made.

Please John Wayne step forward with the cavalry-I'm knee-deep in the hoop-la!

Howdy there spacegoober...

When you ran the Panda antivirus did it detect the fortnight.e virus ?

Also if it did detect the virus you still may some things you may have to delete in the registry, this from Symantec...





1. Click Start, and click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
2. Type regedit and then click OK. The Registry Editor opens.
3. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\[Default User ID]
\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\signatures\

4. Select and delete the signatures key.
5. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\[Default User ID]
\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\

6. In the right pane, delete the following value if you find it:

Signature Flags 3

7. Exit the Registry Editor.
Also when you ran the Panda did you do a full system scan ( ie check all files ) ?

Thanks to Jedi Master & MotherBoard but nothing seems to work-I'm dead in the water here-I'm so frustrated I just want to junk the whole system! At any rate, I appreciate the effort from you two.
