I have downloaded a couple programs that will install properly on my computer, but when I click on the icon for the program an hourglass will come up for about a second and nothing happens.  This has only happened twice, with adaware se and ripit4me.  I am running XP and AVG.  Any help would be appreciated because I would love to be able to run these programs,
Thanks

Tried to reboot the computer?
What does Event Viewer say? (Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer, applications log)
Do the programs turn up in Task Manager?

What happens when you click Start/All Programs and click on the program from there instead of the desktop icon?
