finished installing service pack 2. Nothing special happened. Computer just a tad bit faster.

**EDIT**

By the way, My clipboard doesn't work anymore ("Ctrl+C, Ctrl+P", "right click, copy, paste") both wont work.

Just curious, but I'm betting the system32 folder is just hidden. Go HERE if you don't know how to view hidden files/folders. Then go back to the Windows directory and you should see the System32 folder.

I would right click on the system32 folder and choose PROPERTIES and uncheck the box for HIDDEN. Then click APPLY and OK. The system32 folder isn't a hidden folder by default and could cause problems if it is hidden.

restart your computer and press f8 during boot (you'll get a list of options to start up) choose safemode once in safe mode try to use the two methods above to mark system32 as not hidden....

:whistling:
if you have not resolved this yet - here is a fix that worked for me

open the command window "START-RUN-cmd" then type "attrib -a -h -r -s c:\windows\system32"

you were probably hit with W32.alcra.f virus when using a p2p application.
