Whenever I try to load certain programs, the window will open, but upon clicking on it (anywhere), they will close. No error message is given. The programs I have tried are Windows Live Messenger, iTunes and Windows Media Player.
The problem continues when I try to load any ''social'' websites, such as Last FM, Facebook and MySpace, causing Internet Explorer to close instantly.
I ran a Windows OneCare virus scan last night and it found, stopped and removed one potential criminal. However, the problem persists. I think this is virus related as for a short while last night our wireless (NetGear) was changed to 'open' i.e. anyone could connect. This is substantiated by the fact the same problems are occuring on my laptop. Before it was changed, the problem was non-existant.

Re: Applications Closing Instantly
Yes, it sounds like a computer-virus.
Remove the disk-drive from your desktop computer,
and attach it as a "slave" disk-drive to some other desktop computer, and then run a full virus-scan.
Or, just follow "best practises":
* backup your data & music & E-mail & contacts,
* reinstall Windows from trusted media,
* run Windows Update a bunch of times,
* reinstall anti-virus software,
* reload your files.

Freezing often occurs when your computer is receiving several commands at the same time.
First check your Startup Menu and turn off (uncheck) any programs that don't need to run upon starting up (Go to Start, Run, type in MSCONFIG, select "Start Up" tab and uncheck those needless programs). You can always turn programs on manually when needed (such as media players, games, Instant Messaging, etc.)
Second, check the Options or Preferences in your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs and make certain you don't have a constant scan occuring that will slow down your applications.
Third, turn off any programs or applications that might be running but that you're not using. The fewer programs you have running at one time, the less your computer has to process.
Fourth, when your computer freezes, click on your Control/Alternate/Delete keys at the same time and only once. A window will open called a Windows Task Manager. Select the "Applications" tab if it's not already selected, and highlight any programs which are "Not Running." Then click on "End Task" for those programs only. This way you don't have to restart your computer.
Fifth, notice those programs that seem to cause your computer to freeze and either remove them, replace them or reinstall them.
The issue happens due to quantity of applications at the background. Reducing the quantity of startup applications might help. Just type MSCONFIG after clicking run, At startup tab uncheck the non-essential applications If you need further assistance please post Good Luck
Gphone.exe is worm which spreads via instant messengers. It usually affects Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk applications. Gphone.exe send a message and invites victims to visit a website. If clicked upon, the link actually delivers a copy of Gphone.exe infection.
Most likely you have a security program that detected and removed the threat but windows is still trying to load the file on startup, thankfully it isnt able to because the threat is gone so windows is displaying that error message to let you know it was not able to load the file.
Go to Start > Run> type "msconfig" and press enter. click the startup tab and uncheck the box that says "gphone.exe". (it may have a long file or folder path in front like c:windowssystem32).
