On outlook express i was getting sent virused emails and they went to every one of my friends email addresses on my pc. I downloaded some anti-virus software (AVG) and it found 21 virused files. It sorted them out, but now i cannot open files such as msn, kazaa, camera software and outlook express. It comes up with the error:
Cannot find the file 'C:\Program files\Kazaa\Kazaa.exe (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

Please, if anybody knows what i could do please help. Thankyou

I would suggest that you reinstall kazaa. If you are getting the same errors with the other apps then reinstall those as well. Seems that your anti-virus software has delete the program, wich could have been infected.

Go to www.symantec.com and use their online virus checker and PC security checker. For a start you will know what is really going on with possible remaining infections.

Then run C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SFC.EXE (98/Me) and this will check out all your system files with options to replace or update them if missing or corrupted.

tell me how it goes
