First off, i was just about to start up a game call EverQuest 2, whats besides the point, my mouse started lagging around, and my system became VERY slow, so i decided to restart my computer.
My computer started up as normal, then when Windows XP started up (where the little bar goes across the screen to show the progress) became stop and go, in which it usually takes 15-30 seconds to start up, too 15-30 minutes! now when my computer started it was rather slow, but once a message popped up, the speed fine. The Message was the following
"Failure to run NvCpl.dll Error performing inpage operation"
It seemed to do be the library of my NVidia drivers. so i popped in the disks and reinstalled everything, now when i start up my comp, i dont get the error message, but my computer still takes forever to startup, i also, through all of this, can't open and folder, play any media file, get into my computer or control panel, or ANYTHING, pretty much what i can open is internet explorer, mozzilla firefox, and Run Commands

It is a bit odd, because since i have EverQuest 2 on schedualed tasks it open when i log on, but it opens and doesn't proceed (it first scans file for the launcher incase of a change in coding or graphics, then loads up the launcher) but it doesn't proceed at all, i can download items, and i pretty sure i will be able. if any help can be provided it will be very much appreciated, and i'm very sorry if i posted in wrong forum.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Do you have a windows install cd? You can try running the system file checker. You need to put the windows install cd in your cd/dvd drive, then go to start, run and type sfc /scannow In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
Select the OK button.
Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

When you run the sfc /scannow, it checks system files and replaces those that need fixing. For it to work you need a windows install cd. Sadly, many off the shelf computer manufacturers don't supply that, shamefull but true. Do you know someone who has a windows install cd they can loan you? You are going to use it to run the file checker, not to install windows. There may be other things you can try, but this seemes like a good way to make sure all of the protected system files are ok.

as of the moment, my computer, isn't very slow, if i try to open my computer, and folders my computer thinks for 10 seconds, freezing my computer, then goes back to normal, with no folder opened, if i work it a bit hard, so it has to think a little, it might just crash, as just thinking forever and i can't do anything (i'v made sure it just wasnt thinking along time like other thing, but it did that for several hours) so if i can get any help on bring back my beauty, i will be very much grateful, will keep up posts of my evolving errors.

It might be a good idea to check for malware. Work through the guide at http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html
If you find that you have malware that you are unable to clean up yourself, post a hijack this log in the malware forum. If you find that you don't have malware post back and we will try to help.

i'v done everything on that topic, the online scan stopped part way through, and i tried to use it several times over, and the CleanUp!.exe freezes everytime, it says 'Cleaning Explorer Cache' i'm not sure what the problem is with that, anyway, i t hasn't seemed to make my computer run any different, though after i used all those programs, and deleting several problems they found, it hasnt made a different, when i get back on that computer i will run Ewido again, since i think i got the updates, but im not sure. i still have troubles once in a while to open folders, i can open several folders on my desktop, but i can't open any stystem items (such as my computer, or control panel) i can open several games, such as Warcraft 3, Diablo 2, red alert, and Elder Scrolls 3 and 4, but i still can't play everquest 2, when it loads to prepare files, and scan for updates to open the launcher with the scanner, it never proceeds at the point of 'Preparing Files' and usually, if im not connected the internet is displays 'Can not connect to the network, please make sure your connected to the internet if you have to connect to your modem' but now whenever a take out my Cord (i use a router off my brother's computer to access the internet) it doesn't display the internet error message, and i was wondering if there is anything i can do (several hours of updates to get if i reinstall)
