Allow me to go into more detail. Once my computer reboted from the scan, I was unable to open Firefox. When I clicked on the desktop icon I was prompted to select another program to open it with; when I chose a program, such as Internet Explorer, you would see an internet browser briefly pop up, act as though it were loading a page, shut back down, and be prompted to Run, Save, or Cancel a download of the program you were trying to run. This download is also inactive.
One of the more worrisome things is that Control Panel is locked up as well. When I attempt to open, per se, System, I receive an error message stating 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe - Application not found.' I am able to access control fuctions in Safe Mode, because I earlier used System Reset.
I have tried using the cd that came with my netbook, but once the menu opens I am unable to successfully click on any of the buttons that allow you to redownload drivers and utilities.
I am using an ASUS Eee PC 1005HAB with Windows XP, Service Pack 3.
Thank you very much for reading through this, and I would appreciate any help I can get!
