Then there it is something wrong. It must be 317 kB.

Good catch Donovan. I was going to suggest Bagle worm, but that could be it.

That sounds similar to what is happening to me and i also read about the bagle worm last night and it sounds similar too.  What actually fixed the problem for that user?

Cboyles.

Since it might be an OS problem or an infeccion, it should be better if you open a new topic in Viruses and worms where Essexboy can rule out an infeccion and give you directions on how to fix the OS. You can link Donovan's link for Essexboy to read. JMHO.

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=4.0

I would advice to read this first:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0

However as it seems you can not install any program, I would wait for Essexboy guidance.

Good luck.

Sorry we could not do more, but infeccions and OS better left for qualified members. Keep us informed though.

Is aswclear.exe 317 KB ?

it is 47k

If it is not an infection, it is a problem with the OS.
