I got a strange issue going with one of my PC's. I am unable to access/open certain things within the OS (Windows XP Home) such as when I go to start> My computer, right click and select properties, ill see the hour glass briefly flash and nothing happens? Normally, system properties would open up. I started fishing around and the same thing happens while trying to open add/remove programs, security center and even when i right click my desk top and select properties.
I just got over a spyware/malware hump about a few days ago and computer seemed to be okay since then but now this is happening. I am suspecting there is a virus but I ran Comodo AV and it tests clean, I ran Spybot and Superanti-spyware which are also testing clean. Perhaps some critical system files were deleted? Or there is still a virus lurking? I dunno but im trying to avoid a reformat. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
