Question really weird stuff is going on

alright, installed my new dvd burner last night, works fine. i got something called game copy pro off kazaa, but didnt open, and now, i cant get my mouse to go back to normal, it has the hourglass next to it all the time. i have norton systemworks, and i cant run antivirus, it opens for a split second then closes. i tried to do speeddisk, and it keeps restarting due to disk write. and also, i cant run antivirus anything, anything to due w/ antivirus wont run. even if i right click on something and do scan for virus, it wont work, plus, when i go to program files/norton systemworks/antivirus, it will open then like 0.01 seconds later it will close. i went to google and typed in housecall virus scan, cause i dont know their homepage url, and my screen closed. i have the autocomplete on too, so i went back and pressed the down arrow (this is at google) in the search field, saw what i typed in before, housecall virus scan, and when i highlighted it, the autocomplete closed. so i typed in housecall, it opened fine, tried to click on their page, and the screen closed. guys, WHAT THE *blank* IS GOING ON!!!!!and i just checked to see what happens when i type in virus in the search field. the screen closes.

LOL some of those online virus checker sites think everything is a virus. They are the hypocondriacs of the virus detection industry.
