Default Virus might be affecting PT 8 LE.

I recently had a "windows recovery" virus. I got rid of it, but since then pro tools only gets as far as "setting up midi" and then freezes. I run it on a Sony laptop with an eleven rack.
How many licenses does pro tools 8 LE have? Can I uninstall and install again? I don't use PT to record, just to make edits etc to the eleven rack.
Thanks for any help and advice.

Default Re: Virus might be affecting PT 8 LE.

As long as you have the authorization code handy, you can reinstall all you want. After that kind of attack, I would try a reinstall at least. If that doesn't work, you may need to start over with a fresh install of the OS. That's why I have backup drive images of every system drive for every computer I own(6 of them right now). Acronis True Image Home 11 is the best $40 you may ever spend.
