I am hoping someone might be able to help me.

when i click on icons or try to change things on my control panel
i get a message that says
C:\windows\explorer.EXE application not found.
C:\windows\rundll32.exe application not found
also when i try to run things such as aol and other .EXE programs
it will ask what program i want to open it with.

I can not access my task manager either, it says it is disabled by administrator.

about 4 weeks ago i got some kind of virus and ran spy sweeper
which i belive got rid of most of the problems, but now i am left with
this problem.

any help or advice someone could give me i would really appreciate it
i have a feeling this is a bad problem, im just hoping there may be a solution.
Thank you so much
