SOURCE: I am not able to open any programs on my computer

It is indeed a virus. This is one that I come across quite often.

What I tend to do is start with a boot CD from here.
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

This CD should be downloaded and burnt on a known CLEAN computer.

Once you have that start your computer and if it has a boot menu option during start up use that to boot from the CD otherwise you will need to tell the BIOS to start from CD first.

When the computer has booted from the CD you will see the various options for anti-virus and antispyware etc. use each of those programs in turn until you have run them all.

Between each program you need to re-start your computer and boot from the CD again.

Once you are done it should be safe to boot from the hard drive again.

Hopefully this will have left you with a now WORKING computer.
First thing to do is then to get on-line and use the search term "on-line anti-virus scan" and start again using ESET, NORTON KASPERSKY each individual.

Then download and install MBAM
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Download and install the FREE version and run it and let it clean up anything it finds.

Your documents etc should all be safe using the method above.

If you are no worried about your data then a re-install of the operating system is another option but please use the FORMAT option when doing the install and DON'T use the quick format option

Hope that helps out

Bob.

Hello,

It sounds like the update installed new drivers which may be causing your problem. You can try rolling back the drivers on the mouse. to do this on Windows, you go to control panel, then open up device manager, locate the mouse in question and make sure it is enabled. You can open up the properties panel on the mouse by right clicking on it and selecting properties. You will also notice a
"driver" tab and in that tab you should have an option to manage the drivers and do a roll back.

You can also go to logitechs website, locate the drivers page and install newer drivers or older ones(if that worked).

I hope this helps and if so thumbs up my solution.

Regards,
