All folders on desktop that point to c:/documents and settings, do not open. The pointer will turn to an hour glass then revert back to a pointer. If I create a new folder I will not be able to open it, all aftermarket program folders work fine. I am not able to open control panels or the printers folder. I may have gotten a virus but Norton has not detected anything. Norton Win doctor di dno tfind anything wrong. I also ran the command sfc/scannow. Any thoughts -

3kdad,
Faranth might be right on this one (as well ;) ) but try searching for "*dll*exe*" (w/o the quote marks); nothin should show up, but if something does its a virus for sure as no such file type really exists. r u getting any other type of error screens/random reboots? sluggish sys? undeliverable emails that u dont recall sending 2beginw/?

If your are going to reinstall or repair read this and the chances of this happening again are slimm if none.

Alaways running on ROOT/Administrator can be fatal.

Dude seriously to save you "time" & "effort" I highly would recommand a format seriously. Only takes 45 mins I think it is time for it seriously man & if you never reformated then we go from there.

When I get home from work we will discuss that the first time it's always the weridest and the hardest but since it is a MS product all you really do is say next next next next and your done.

Before doing make sure you have a backbone to help you out someone there or over the phone. I will walk you through it as much as possible. If you really need help I have no problem calling you and walking you through it.

Question you have Windows XP Pro bootable CD? Let me know.

Do you have a WinXP CD? Well this isn't a good start at all dude. Call me if you need assistant dont forget to leave your number.

Seto, we have tryed to help you as much as possible, if you dont have a windows CD your basiclly screwed, id suggest going about purchasing one.

How did you even get XP onto your computer with out the disk?

id suggest asking if any of your friends have a windows 2000 disk that they will let you use to reinstall windows with.
