Thx guys for your continued support^^

Well I booted into Safe Mode being that's the only way I can access things, and went into Regedit and found several stuff on Avast and Alwil software.

What should I do with these entries?

It's really frustrating that I can't access properties of "My Computer" and also desktop properties or click on any txt files, but I can access them all in Safe Mode >,<

If it was me I would
1) make a restore point
2 make sure the reg was backed (resore point should do this but does not hurt to make sure )
3) delete the files

No: reformat is the last ditch effort at worst we will have to do a re install
depending on when you got your disk if it has SP1 or SP2 you may have to
update from windows for all the patches.

maybe not I have found a site that makes an service pak 2 xp disk
If you have a friend with a computer and cd burner
