My computer has suddenly started not doing a number of odd things. I have not loaded new software or changed any settings recently that i can think of.
I have Windows XP Home. IE6. The original Service Pack 1 that came with the laptop.
I have run the housecall virus scan from trendmicro and adaware SE. Nothing special showed up. As far as i know i have all the current critical microsoft patches.
My problems are-
when first loading i get an error report box saying there is a problem with HPWirelessMgr Module. As far as i know i have no HP Wireless products. I googled this with no helpful results.
When i try to click on a link in IE that is supposed to open in a new window then nothing happens. I also can not choose to open a new window. I noticed a thread there with a similar problem and i ran all the regsvr32 things and it acknowledged them all but nothing is fixed.
I also can not drag & drop in windows explorer. I can't highlight multiple files. If i choose to copy and then paste nothing happens.
If i click on the shortcut on my desktop to connect to the internet nothing happens. I have to go into IE and choose to connect from within the browser.
i think that's all!!
Any advice would be appreciated.

Woah sounds like your laptop is messing up bad..
Ok, for your opening a link in a new window: I always use the ctrl+shift method, where you hold ctrl+shift and click the link you want to open in a new window
As for your HP wireless prob, check …
