Specs: Windows XP
AVG detected a virus and I clicked quarantine.

OS: Windows XP
After the reboot, I can open C drive or folders.But I can not open any applications like Internet explorer, WMP,Real player or the AVG itself.

Most of the discussion & fixes online is limited to Open With virus for the drives but not much help for the problem with opening actual programs.

Appreciate your time!

Hope IE will launch too w/o problems..

Thank you very much!

I was thinking that I'd have to reformat.

For anyone who's got this problem: follow those instructions. They work.

Thanks again,
