I am having THE WEIRDEST problem with my desktop/Win 7 64

Customer Question

I am having THE WEIRDEST problem with my desktop/Win 7 64 bit. All day I've installed three different streaming audio recording programs; they install fine, but when I try to RUN them, the cursor switches to an hourglass for 3-4 seconds, then goes back to an arrow and nothing happens! I know my way around this thing and I'm stumped. I NEED this to work, now, though. I have a business meeting tomorrow that MUST be recorded, and this is the only working PC in the house.

I just realized that the problems started with my trying to install a new AV program this morning which was also unsuccessful. I have the error log from AVIVA AV if you think that'll help any? I am really really tired and really really broke, which is why even though this is such an important issue, I can't afford to pay any more than $30. I am on SSI and work as a part time freelance administrative assistant. This machine has been down for a few years, I have VERY LITTLE internal HD space left, only 3.9 GB and I have a LOT of Windows updates that I dont have room to install. I am TRYING to move a lot of data onto cloud services while I wait...to increase that so I can update Windows....
