Ok you're bored, I'll cut to the chase. I asked my friend to come over and help me figure out what it was and to delete some files. She deleted AOl, CompuServe, and a version of Internet Explorer that had numbers attatched to it. She said since I had my other internet Explorer, she'd just get rid of the weird looking one. So she deletes it all successfully, and everything is cool. She says she will install Norton AntiVirus to prevent anything like this from happening again. After she puts in the cd, installs and reboots, NOTHING CAN OPEN
The message I get in WOrd for example is "windows cannot find 'C\\WINDWS\CALC.EXE'. yOU MAY HAVE TYPED THE NAME INCORRECTLY IN THE Run dialog, or anothe open program cannot find a system file. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search". If I try opening Word, says the same thing except the it doesn't describe the file.
The only thing from the desktop it lets me open is My computer, and from there, I clicked on windows update on the side to get to the internet an post. When I restart the computer, I get about 6 popups like the one above. Can my computer go back to normal?
Thanks for your help guys!
