    I found a trojan horse on my system last week and ran my Symantic overnight and it found and quarantined it. Everything worked fine on Saturday, then this morning I come in, boot up my PC and when I try to open anything I get this pop up.

    I can get around it by opening a file directly from Windows Explorer (works for both files on my HDD and those housed on our server), but I cannot open any shortcuts or even directly Start/Programs/FILE.

    So...WTF?
