Odd problem, and probably just as valid for the virus and malware section, but I'm not 100% positive that that's the cause. The laptop in question is a Vaio PCG-7F1L, and I was told it has a virus or two on it. I tried installing a malware remover first, but the .exe would not install. It's listed in the processes, but nothing happens. Internet Explorer came up with a similar problem. The Control Panel can open, though, so it's not with everything. Any ideas on what can cause that?
