I have just recently used hijackthis, killbox, and ATF-cleaner on my system, due to a virus I had. Since then I cannot view thumbnails in windows. Sometime I cant even copy and paste text. Any ideas?

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD
