I have a sony vaio laptop sz120p with windows xp.
I've been having a lot of problems with it but have been resistant to reset my computer, delete everything and start fresh (since I have so much stuff in it).
My current issue is the windows explorer won't start. So I have to ctrl alt del and create new task: explorer. That's the only way I can have the start bar show.
I've read all forums about this issue, but nothing seems to resolve the problem.
I've done system restore and there were no restore points.
I've ran all kinds of anti-virus but it keeps saying I've got nothing. I even run it with my internet off to make sure. I had avg, avira and ad-aware. I currently have avira on.
Now my sound disapeared, just happened a few days ago. Not sure if it was after a windows update... but it was on the same day.
How do I fix this issue? could it be a virus slowing afecting each part of my computer?
