I need help. For some reason, as I was searching the internet yesterday, I got stuck with a cookie for antivirus xp2010 protection. I was trying to remove that cookie from the task bar. FInally, I did it because it was very annoying. It kept popping up every two minutes or so. At this point, I am not sure if I removed something else, acidentaly. Now, I cannot open any applications from my control panel, like system, at or remove programs, security center, firewall, keyboard, display and internet explorer, ,etc. I am getting an error message telling me, "application not found". C:/WINNT/system32/rundll32.exe
Can anyone tell me if you know if something is missing in my computer; prohibiting me from opening all these applications? I am able to connect to the internet, using mozillla firebox, but every time I double click mozilla, appears a window, asking me which program shall I use to open Mozilla. Thank you. George

aaround, Antivirus XP 2010 is a rogue anti-virus application that claims to scan your computer for malware, but in reality it only imitates legitimate security software and tries to trick users into thinking that their computers are badly infected. Find description and removal instructions @:
