after you read all that.. i ran the same process on my computer to see what it looked like.. in my application log, 99% of what shows up is warning from norton antivirus... is that something to be curious about?

charZar....

We've got some Service Control Manager problems on "Wunderbox"...Let's run another Windows repair and see if we can get those files back....

REPAIR your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can.

The norton "Warnings" on your machine are more than likely the updater trying to go online for updates and not finding a connection. Warnings usually aren't too much to worry about.

The repair should definitely give us a more viable system. There are some Hot Patches available for the other events you listed, but we've got to get you online for those. I'll watch for your next post....

We have a little problem we have to rid "Wunderbox" of before we go much further. First I'd like you to go to System Restore (Start then All Programs then Accessories then System Tools and click System Restore)...in the left pane, click the link for "System Restore Settings" and then Disable or Turn Off System Restore. Apply the settings and exit.

right now (words from my friend) everything just disappeared... she was looking through folders and everything just disappeared... she was looking through folders at first and searching her 'stuff'.. then she tried opening itunes and it wouldn't.. then she tried mozilla (internet) and it came up with "application failed ::bunch of numbers::".. and now it's disappeared.. she just turned it off via holding down the button

i'm fired up because i finally got my wireless to hook up--lots of mishaps between my computer and our resnet people.. :-/

That's ok...we'll work in safe mode for a little while....

Now charZar...I need you to Please go HERE and download the tool found there. Copy it to a floppy disk. Run it on "Wunderbox" and reboot.

Once we get that off your machine I think we can get things straightened out enough to generate a good HJT log for the Malware folks.
