My operating system is XP.

In normal mode, everytime I try to open a document, run a program, or use a browser, I get the following message: "The specified path does not exist. Check the path, and then try again." This message does not appear in safe mode. I can still see all my files and open file folders.

Also, when I log on to my computer, my firewall is turned off. My settings were to have it always be on.

Finally, when I try to do anything in safe mode the computer starts to run very slowly after a short period of time. I have over two gigs of RAM.

I have had this problem since Saturday morning (about two days ago).

I have unsuccessfully tried the following things:
- running Symantec and Spybot antivirus scans (only in safe mode)
- sytem restore (it was inexplicably disabled)

Follow this guide: http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html
Then post the required logs in the Malware Forum.
If problems persist after getting a clean bill of health from the Malware techs, come back here.
