I have an amd athlon xp 1600+, motherboard is asustek a7s87x-mx, graphics card is nvidea g force fx 5200,and i run windows xp sp1. For the last couple of days i have been unable to drag and drop any files. I can still send them to the folders. I tried opening another account with another administrator and i can drag files on that account. I was told it may be a blaster worm, so i did a scan from microsoft and all was clean. I have up to date mcafee and scanned with that as well as xoftspy, there was a couple of normal rated ad infections and they were cleared. I tried your recommended free adware and spyware progs and all is ok but the problem still remains. I would be gratefull for any help. I also have to appologise i have posted this in the suggestions forum by mistake

Drag-and-drop is a 'per account' option in XP I think, well it's definitely an option anyway, though it should be enabled by default. Still it's worth a quick check:
1. Right-click Start button and choose 'properties'.
2 Click 'Customize' button, then 'Advanced' tab.
3. "Allow dragging and dropping" is fourth option from top. Should be ticked.
