My computer is working okay, to a point. It boots, shows icons, but I cannot use Start to get on the Internet. I have to use an icon to get on the web. Nor can I access the registry to few days ago to get around the problem. The computer is working, but it's not supposed to be this way I think.

From System Tools it states, "Internet Explorer (No add-ons)
I noticed on the blue ball which has the white arroow in the right hand corner has fewer items there now.

When I click on Internet IE I get the "Open With" box it shows Adobe Reader, Internet Explorer, iTunes and list of programs.

In the box it says:

Choose the program you want to use to opne this file.

It happened when I was on porn sites and clicked on the ads on the side.

I have Windows XP, one meg of Ram I think, can't get the sys info. Sys is near 10 years old I would guess, got the PC second hand. Been working great for a few years.

I use the free AVG anitviral software.
