Update on the Kasperksy Disc: besides what i mentioned above i also can't scan, i get error code 8000046, it says it failed to startup. Peale seems to be having the exact same problem as me:

"I’ve spent 30 minutes trying to update over and over and over the Kaspersky rescue cd.
I orginally did the cd prior to finding your page here & it wouldn’t scan – said error code 80000046 and so when I found your posts here – I redid the cd & followed your download suggestions & all to a “t”
After 30 minutes of update downloads I still get the error."

Thanks again for all the replies, hopefully i can get the rescue disk to work and if not i'll try bootng in safemode and if that fails to work i guess i'll try system restore? Anyone else have other suggestions or thoughts? i'd welcome any
