In the no good deed goes unpunished category... I am "cleaning up" a friends laptop. I purchased and installed NOD32 (not trial version) with apparent success but I can't get it to start to do a scan. Shows in system tray very briefly then disappears, double clicking icon on desktop does nothing. Tried Safe-Mode same results. Maybe this thing is more of a mess than I thought. Can't get simple things like Spybot to run either. My first thought is to create a disk from which I could scan? Is that possible with NOD32. System is WinXP Home Edition. Thanks in advance for ANY suggestions!
