    PC boots up fine, but when I double click on any icons, nothing happens, get
    hourglass then it goes away. It may be a virus, but I am unable to do a
    virus scan.

    If it's a virus start with Trend Micro's Sysclean. Download it and the
    signature file. Turn off system restore, boot into safe mode and run
    sysclean. Boot back into normal mode and run a full AV scan with your
    normal AV program. Then turn system restore back on.

    You should also regularly run at least two of these online scans in
    addition to your regular up to date AV program:

    Online and Downloadable Virus Scanning:

    Panda ActiveScan

    Bit Defender Online Virus Scan:

    Symantec Online Virus and Security Scan:

    TrendMicro:

    RAV AntiVirus - Scan Online

    F-Secure:

    Run these programs to check for spyware/malware. After installing
    update them, then boot into safe mode and run them. You should update
    and run them weekly.

    If you’re still having problems after running these then run HijackThis
    and post the log to one of the specialty forums, _NOT_ this one.
