ohk heres what Ive found
-do a check disk,clean your temp files and get a good anti virus program.
furthermore the problem is targeted on xp sp2.so if you not into the sp2 vs sp3 debate just install sp3. and there you go

DEP is blocking your Windows Explorer. If you are sure your system is not infected then Turn off DEP for Windows Explorer only (C:\Windows\explorer.exe).

if i were to switch to service pack 3, would this get rid of all my problems? i mean, when it asks if i want to back up my stuff, should I? i mean is it really necessary?

you can backup format and do a clean install together with sp3.voila
also like I said I made it priority to search your prob and no theres no guarantees but worth giving it a go.this prob is most likely with sp2 so you conclude if its worth the try.If I were you Id give it a go.
Good luck

okay, i'll back up only whats important on my computer and i will do a clean wipe. once everything is wiped should i then install sp3 from the link you gave me? i really want to thank you for all your help for this. i'll give this a go

Id say install sp3 (go with the link as provided) as you install the OS. seeing that, that specific prob lies with sp2.its not likely to happen again but it could and youd be stuck with a de javu. in a nutshell install your OS with sp3
feel free to ask if you need further help.
Good luck fella
