Just to see if everything is working properly go to START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, Command Prompt and click on it. This will open up a windows ANSI screen. If your C drive is accessible you should see something like C:\Documents and Settings. Type in CD and four periods and hit enter. The directory will shrink down. Do it again CD followed by periods and hit enter. Now you will be at the C:\ prompt. Type in CHKDSK /F What this is, is the check disk command. Next time your machine reboots you'll get a blue screen and the machine will go through three self checks. It will also repair errors on the disk. When it finishes, windows will restart and hopefully you will be back in business.

Win32 tour application has blocked my laptop..please help me !!!

Theres not many information regarding Win32 Tour Application. It will show you phone numbers to call i believe.
Sadly theres not many that have solved this problem too. If you can boot to safe mode (by pressing F8 during initial boot) then try running your antivirus from there.
I would suggest downloading the free version from
If that would not solve the problem reformating and reinstalling your OS will be the best move.
Good Luck.
