    I have a friend who appears to have been infected with a virus attached to a
    newsletter. It launched some 'sexcam' application which was removed, however
    when any app is launched now it only opens Adobe Reader.

    Any ideas please??

    Have your friend update the virus definitions for their Antivirus program
    and perfrom a full system scan. Remove all infected files, reboot and see if
    the problem is still occuring.

    Hmm, the problem is that they cannot launch AVG (anti virus application)
    ..... My thinking is that I need a fix that I can place on a floppy and
    reboot the PC or something.
