Calibre won't convert files.

Dear Kovid and users of Calibre,

My Calibre worked fine until recently, but right now I'm having trouble getting it to convert files. The jobs: 4 things will run and run and run and run and get nowhere. When I click on it to see the list of jobs, it says Status: Working, there is a blank bar for progress and Unavailable next to it.

The only thing I could think of is that recently I installed a new antivirus program. But disabling it didn't do the trick. I'm really stumped and not sure what is going on. I did have a run-in with a couple of virus/worms and haven't gotten around to formatting computer yet (antivirus program supposedly took care of it).. but I'd gotten a few blue screens while I had the worm about Terminal Services not being available and such. Could that be it?

I really want to figure out how to get calibre to work again, as my reader is infinitely less useful without calibre. Thanks!

Thanks, Kovid. Cmd.exe wasn't even working, my computer is truly in need of a rehaul. I managed to fix the problem using chkdsk and all is well.
