I had several viruses on my pc.
so now I cannot run IE or my microsoft outlook email

I get permissions errors

in OUTLOOK I get this when trying to send/receive
You don't have appropriate permissions to perform this operation

IE just will not run at all so I am using safari
firefox won't run either

Is there a way to fix this?

For how long have you had these virii?

If only a few days and you have a system restore point before that, you are better off booting up in safe mode with command prompt and typing rstrui.exe to do a system restore. This'll be the easiest and quickest solution.

If this solution is not possible, you'd be better off doing a repair install. If you need instructions you can find them here:

For virus removal you can refer to this link as a guide on how to remove the viruses

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Vulnerabilities/A_12285-Virus-Removal-Methods.html

After that as aadih recommended a repair installation has a possibility of resolving the issue.  This all depends on how long you have had the virus and how much damage it did.  You can follow the guide to see if any remaining infections are still present.  System Restore, OS repair and if all else fails wipeout and reinstall.  Just depends on what point your at with the system and what would be more time efficient etc.

back your data up... email, photos, music, serial numbers, etc...
Belarc is a good tool

With a bad infection, you can end up with a non-booting PC.  

if you have the media available, you can probably fully reload a PC in 3 or 4 hours, or easily spend 5 times that trying to clear an infection, and never be confident that it's utterly gone.

You don't have appropriate permissions to perform this operation

A system repair install may be worth your time (at this juncture).

Belarc is really handy for rebuilds as it lists the software that you have, plus the serials.

If you don't have a backup software preference already, I'd suggest you look at CrashPlan:
