I am running programs related to college courses. Although these programs were released last year and are claim to be "Windows 7 Compatible", every time the software loads it requests that an...

The solution for this problem is to use the Compatibility mode. Right click on the program (or the installer when you install it) and select Properties. Choose the compatibility tab. Check "Run this program in the Compatibility Mode". I suggest that you try Windows XP SP2 first as the compatible OS. (There are some indications that Vista and XP SP3 had the same issues with the MCI driver with some of these programs.) Then click Apply and OK. If you do this when installing the program, right click on the installer a second time and choose Run as Administrator.

I hope this helps.

Virus (trojan or somthing) Shuts down task manager after a sec.

The only thing I see for now that has been archive by spyware doctor is your braviax.exe. It say it is a rogue malware.

And almost you are running more than 2 antivirus in your system and diagnostic program.

I will post some updates. Try to search for braviax what it is so you can have knowledge first hand.

Cannot uninstall ''IOLO system mechanic pro 7''

   sounds awkward I would try burning all your important files to CDs or DVDs to keep them safe and then rolling back changes using system restore- start - all programs-- accessories -- system tools - system restore
from there hopefully you can restore your p.c. to a time before you installed all these programs you wish to remove. Alternatively if you have your Windows install disc (probably not) but if you do then you can install windows again and put your files but from CD/DVD storage. Alternatively you might have a "restore disc" which does a similar state and will restore your laptop to how you bought it.
However I van only advice these "solutions" when you get really desperate, starting over it may take days to get your system how it was before. 1st I would try "system restore" as not all of your documents are affected and you can easily undo the changes you make.
